Home Based Business Ideas for Retirees

If you’re like me, your investments haven’t worked out quite the way you had hoped. I find that I’m probably going to need to work until I’m well into my 80’s just to make ends meet and enjoy a comfortable retirement. I’ve been looking at home based business ideas for retirees to help me to make some additional income after I stop working.

In my search I have looked at filling out forms and surveys to make a few dollars. This seems to be a way to make a few bucks. After calculating the time spent for the reward received I was working for about $1.00 and hour. Not really a good way to go.

I have looked at some scams too. These folks have a $39.00 product that professes to make you a huge amount of money in a short time. Some sell you a package that will point you to their product or training. There is no support available when you run into a problem or if there is support, it is available at additional cost. They take your cash and laugh all the way to the bank.

Affiliate Marketing is a good way to go. If you are not computer literate though, you need to find a place that will give you training. With this, you own your own business, you create websites that are designed to promote a product or a group of products. When you sign up with a reputable affiliate network and send people to the product pages, the network will pay you a percentage of the sale. This is like the old travelling salesman model where you get a commission on anything you sell for the company.

What if you don’t know how to do more than read e-mails from the Grandkids and maybe look at a picture or two. I have found a place that will take you from absolute newbie to experienced marketer in no time at all. There is a community that will support you. There is no need to be scared or intimidated, people will take time out from their discussions to help someone that needs it. The tutorials are available in video and text versions. There are many places to blog, ask questions, give opinions, and learn about Affiliate Marketing.

There are tools to help you get a website online in just a few clicks. There is a content editor that will help you keep track of what you create. But most of all the other members are helpful and concerned about your interests. So if you are looking for a way to earn online and need help and a supportive group of people to work with to get you earning a retirement income. This well kept secret will get you earning an Online Retirement Income in no time at all.

Great article Hughes, i have decided to create new ideas, or improve on old ideas to make real money, when there are a lot of people working on a system to make money, you will not make much.
