Six Popular Ways To Work From Home
With technology nowadays, any one of us can basically start a ‘work from home’ business without even needing any start-up cost. Believe it or not, the tens of thousands of people from various parts of the world are trying to start working from home. Some say the main reason is to escape from the nine to five desk work while others rather want to become the boss themselves and have less stressed lives. So, in order to help you have a kick start in this work from home business, let me share with you some of the most basic and easy ways to work from home. This post will guide you to start working from home immediately!
1. Starting a blogging business
This is one of the most common and easiest methods of all. You can start a blog for free thanks to Blogger, WordPress or Weebly to name a few. This is extremely common among teenagers (majority) and this is proven to be one of the most effective ways to earn money online. However, if you are planning to become a blogger, do not ditch your current work as blogging takes time to ‘mature’. Most bloggers actually gave up this highly potential industry because they assumed they will earn money within the first few months.
2. Become a freelance writer
My number two choice for working at home is again, writing (blogging in some sort). As a freelance writer, you can choose to write during weekends or even after working hours. You can even write if you can’t sleep and that’s what I am doing right now! Basically, you can find websites or ‘jobs opening’ and you could easily land yourself a writing job easily. For starters, you may earn between $10 to $30 per article but as you build your reputation, you may earn much higher than that. Of course, it also depends on what you are writing.
3. Affiliate marketer
To be very honest with you, this is one of the highest paying jobs when it comes to home business but with one huge catch; you got to be really serious into this. Affiliate marketing takes up a lot of your time as you are selling a product not physically but virtually. If you have been in a sales job before, you would understand how challenging it is to close a sale. Imagine doing it online instead! Nowadays, there are quite a few big companies who are constantly looking for online affiliate marketers and you could give it a shot. Moreover, it doesn’t cost you a single penny for that so there is absolutely no risk involved for you.
4. Buy and sell
I didn’t believe this works but one of my friends did it. And yes, he is earning twice as much as what I am earning right now. The rule here is simple. Buy something cheap and sell it at a higher price. Anything other than that is history. This is a very fun work from home option but would require you to spend a little money at first to get your stocks rolling in.
5. Become a smartphone app developer
Smartphones are becoming essential for all of us nowadays. Not only the phone is becoming a hot topic, but even smartphone apps are also tagging along as well in this fast-moving pace. If you are good in computer skills, you can easily register to become an Apple smartphone developer (for a small fee) or you can opt for Android platforms instead which is free. Who know that you might be the next Instagram developers who earns millions.
6. Are you good in multitasking? How about general freelancing?
General freelancing is a freelancer who excels in any required method as needed by the employer. His job opportunities are enormous, that is, the chances of getting an online job is easier as there are so many choices to choose from. For example, you can easily choose the job of freelance writer, personal assistant, data entry staff or even editor. There is basically no full stop for this particular industry.
In short there are six common and popular options of work from which you can choose one to work at home. Again, there could probably be thousands of other choices and it is all up to you to discover them. My personal advice to all is always give it a try first and decide. You may never know if that suits you until you have hands-on experience with it.
I know that when we work from home, we would always want to have our own identity which is great and therefore, one of the easiest things we can do is to start up a website. However, starting a website is much challenging than you think.
