Easy Ways to Make Money From Home – Motivation and A Willingness to Work Will Get You Far

Millions of people every day search for easy ways to make money from home, but that they are looking for is TOO easy.  You cannot make money from home without doing any work, and if you believe ads that say otherwise you are very gullible.  Now that I have hurt your feelings and disappointed you, let’s get on to some methods that really DO work – if you apply yourself.

Nothing you do online is going to make you a millionaire overnight, so you may as well accept the fact that it is going to take some time no matter what method you choose.  Does it take money to make money online?  That depends.  If you want a website, you may spend $12 or $15 bucks a month.  Autoresponders add a little more to the cost.  All in all, you should be able to earn some decent money from your home and spend $50 or less per month.

Many people will tell you that you cannot make money without spending money, but I would have to argue that point.  I make well into the four figure a month range as a ghostwriter, and I did not spend one dime to do so.  Also, many bloggers make a very good living and don’t spend any money.

Now, down to some of the best choices there are for making money from home:

1.  Write!  Become a freelance writer or ghostwriter like I did.  Do I have a degree or any previous experience?  Absolutely not.  I had written so many articles for my own sites and blogs that I decided to do it as a profession for other online business owners.  Best choice I ever made, I can guarantee you.

2.  Become an affiliate.  Affiliate marketing is probably the most popular method of making money online.  Put up a blog or website, write some good keyword-optimized content, and add related affiliate products.  You do have to learn how to drive traffic to your site and increase popularity, but that isn’t too difficult.  Visit marketing forums, and you can learn all you need to know.

3.  Do online surveys.  While many people think this is a joke, it absolutely isn’t.  There are really many people who make thousands per month filling out simple surveys!  I saw a woman on the Today show a while back that makes over $6,000 per month by participating in online surveys.

4.  Offer any other services you can.  Can you create graphics, build websites, become an answering service?  Maybe you are good at social networking.  Many online businesses will pay you to do these “odd” jobs for them, so they can spend their time working on other important aspects of their business.

These are just a very few of the hundreds of easy ways to make money from home.  As I said before, anything you do will require motivation and work.  Envision yourself working at home, setting your own schedule, with no boss to answer to.  It certainly gives you the motivation!  There really is nothing like working for yourself.

Are you ready to see how exciting and self-fulfilling it can be to create your own employment?  If you truly want to make money online from your own home, you can.  Believing in yourself and envisioning your dreams is the first step.
