I wanted to learn how to work at home and earn money
For the past two and a half years, I’ve been researching how to work at home and earn money. I became interested after I quit my last job about four years ago when I left the catering warehouse in a huff. I never, ever wanted to have to work for somebody else ever again. I also decided I no longer wanted to bust my ass every day working at a physically intensive job, My poor abused body can’t take it any longer. Working online has become the preferable way to work at home especially in our technological age. So I sat down on my butt and got to work scouring the internet for ways to work at home online.
Back in the day, before the proliferation of the personal computer, there were all kinds of crazy schemes that promised you they knew a way for you to make money working from home. Unlike the internet, these schemes were advertised in newspaper ads. They all said pretty much the same thing: “Send money and we will divulge the secret to our success”.
The secret to their success was getting me and knuckleheads like me, to cough up our hard earned cash to learn the secret to their success. (Did that make sense to you? It sounded really good in my head) The bottom line here is: They made money but you didn’t.
High- tech Shenanigans
Crazy schemes still abound, but now they have more flash, color. and style than a simple newspaper ad ever could. With the use of the internet, they are able to reach more knuckleheads than usual. You have to watch out for these guys, they can really pile it on. Unfortunately, I fell prey to a scheme that was called the Work at Home Institute. The best thing I got out of that particular experience was my money back.
Don’t even get me started about taking online surveys. They say it’s easy money and it would be if I had made any actual money. I spent approximately 3 months ( excruciating months ) of my life that I will never get back to try to make a go of it.
The only positive experience I gained from this endeavor is the fact that no actual money was spent. I didn’t exactly earn any actual money, but I didn’t spend any. My adventure into that world ended up giving me the biggest f****** headache I have ever lived through in my entire life. I kid you not
About six months into this I was getting really frustrated. I found scheme after scheme after scheme. However, I researched so many of these things that I was able to spot them a mile away and wasn’t so easily hoodwinked. I only invested in one but that was enough for me. After reading so many experiences of people getting ripped off by one nefarious plot or another, I really began to despair that I would ever discover a way to honestly earn money online.
That’s not to say everything is a scheme. There are places where you can sell products or services. I’m pretty sure most everybody has heard of Ebay and Amazon and there are several less popular websites where you can do the same. The biggest obstacle for me with that option is that I have no products or services that I can sell. By this point I learned two universal truths about making money honest money from the internet:
- You have to sell your own products/services or……
- You have to sell somebody else’s products/services for them
So this is when I learned about affiliate marketing. I learned that through affiliate marketing I had the opportunity to make a decent enough amount of money to help support my mom and me. (Did I forget to mention I live at home with my mom?) So now the hunt was on to learn all that I could about affiliate marketing in the hopes of becoming an affiliate myself.<Sigggghhhhhh> Here I go again delving deep into the mystery and I was able to shake loose these two little nuggets of info:
- In order to become an effective affiliate marketer, I needed a website. While there are tens of thousands of companies who employ affiliates not one of them will take you seriously unless you have a website.
- It became clear that I needed to find somebody who could teach me how to become an affiliate marketer.
More research, more digging. I was seriously going to throw in the towel when I finally found a website that met both of those requirements. Wealthy Affiliate. To me, the most alluring feature they had was that I didn’t have to have a credit card to sign up for a free trial. I also didn’t need a credit card for a starter membership, because the starter is free. I could have two free websites with no financial obligation.
I personally am currently enjoying the premium membership which is $49 a month with no contracts and I can cancel anytime I want to. I am happy to report that I have been earning income from affiliate marketing for a while now and I gotta tell ya, my income has doubled each month for the past couple of months. It only gets better and I’m lovin’ every minute of it. Why wouldn’t I? I’m working at home making money.
That’s all there is:
In my opinion, this is the best program out there because it has everything that I could possibly need to learn and earn at the same time. I challenge you to show me something better
