Are There Free Ways to Make Extra Money at Home?
Many people want to make extra income at home without spending a fortune to do it. This article is for you! You will learn what is possible, and what is a very good way to do it.
I say "essentially" because everything in life has at least a little bit of cost to it, even if only pennies. But it is possible to have extra income and earn extra money without a meaningful investment, just a slight one, and to do it from home.
Some of these ways are very labor intensive. That means you'll spend a lot of hours doing some very menial tasks, but you will earn some income. This would be in things like envelope stuffing, or in filling out online forms. It could also be by completing online surveys. If you computed an hourly wage from these methods, however, you might find it surprisingly low.
A person could also set up a free webpage and create a virtual store. Several website hosting services exist which will let you set up a free page on anything you want. Most of the time they are going to want to do some advertising on it themselves. You might choose products from Amazon.com, for example, to sell on your web page. There are two problems with this approach. It is very competitive and the commission structure for the products you sell is not very high. This is a form of affiliate marketing.
For me, the best form of a silent online money making business is another type of affiliate marketing, article writing. This is a more specialized niche in which you can market very high commissioned items. Here is how it works!
You choose your product which has, let's say, a commission rate of between 50-75% and you begin to market it. You write meaningful articles with good information about the product, or about the niche in which the product exists. You are seeking to create an interest in your product. Several online article sites exist which are looking for articles having good content. They will publish your articles online without charge, and allow you to link to your product. They win, with the informative article; you win, with the link to your product.
When the reader's interest is stirred by what you have said, they go to the website where the product is and have an opportunity to make a purchase. The money automatically goes into your bank account.
You see, in this type of arrangement, you have no type of investment except your time. Your articles stay online indefinitely, creating the potential for long term sales right into your bank account.
How does a person learn how to do this? There are many websites which provide products that have the information you are looking for, some obviously better than others. You're going to want to find the best product to teach you how to do this process.
