You Can Make Good Money from Home

You may be tired of your job, overextended on your credit, or unemployed. For whatever reason, you feel the need to make money from home, but more than that, you need to make GOOD money from home. That is very possible. It is up to you to put in the work.

Some Things You Can Do

You can seek a job where you telecommute. I have heard they are out there, but I have never found one. It's the kind of job where you do what you do from the comfort of your own home for an employer. For clarity, an employer is someone who has control over the details of your work and can tell you what to do, when to do it, and whether what you have done is right or not. Actually I am getting to where I am tired of giving up that much control.

You can contract out to do things for others or businesses. I have heard of a site that needs typists to type dictation they hear. I know of a couple of sites that pay you for articles. E-Lance is a service that outsources the writing of articles and other tasks, but the availability of foreign writers that will work for next to nothing tend to drive the price down for the work, resulting in less income.

What do I do?

I do Affiliate Marketing and I make good money from home. It requires a lot of work, but I have developed the habit of putting in the work so it is no problem. It is kind of like when I was going to college online and I thought an 800 word paper was really large. That was how I felt when I started out there, but a few of those later it was really no problem. In the same way, when I started writing articles as a money making tool, I had to get my head right before I could bang out 3 or more per day of articles from 450 - 800 words each. Now it is no problem but that is the work ethic I have that enables me to make good money from home.

How Does That Make Money?

I try to solve problems for people when I write an article. If I have helped someone and they thirst for more help, I have provided a link where they can get more information or buy something that helps them solve their problem. For that purchase, the businesses with whom I have that relationship pay me a percentage of the purchase or subscription price.

Are there Pitfalls?

Of course there are. One mistake I have made is buying into software gimmicks that automated the work I do to put out articles. The ones I have tried included some that made several versions of an article I had written and sent it out to other sites. They were a little different, but you could recognize that they were the same article. The problem with this is that the search engines are developing the ability to spot these cloned articles and actually penalize the site that is linked from the articles. I quit doing that. I can only recommend against it. It will be your call. However it is possible to make good money from home doing it all old school, one letter at a time.

Practice Makes Perfect

Don't you believe it. In fact, this is almost never true. You can so much sooner practice bad habits than good ones, but when you do the work with instruction and direction, you will have a steep learning curve. One last warning - if you just study a lot and wait to start doing the work until you know enough, you will fail to get started. There is a lot to learn and it will overwhelm you, just trying to learn it all when you will pick it up much more quickly and it will all fit together better if you are trying and writing, making mistakes, and learning from them. Get in there and mix it up. You will stub your toe now and then, but do the work and you will learn to make good money from home.
