Can you make a living online?

Have you ever dreamed of not having to work a normal nine to five job again? Having the financial freedom to work where and when you like is the utopia that many yearn for.

Fortunately, we live in an age where the reality of such a lifestyle is more attainable than ever. If you want to work from home with an online business, there are so many opportunities, it’s difficult to know where to begin!

So here’s a list of my favorite money making opportunities:

#1 – write a book. Once upon a time, if you wanted to write a book, you had to jump through hurdles with agents and publishers, and most likely your story will never see the light of day. Today though, all you need is an idea, a laptop and an Amazon account. You can self publish pretty much anything to Amazon, Kobo and Apple stores and start making money.

#2 – Promote other peoples products. If someone’s thought of a product, its probably online and there’s probably an affiliate program that will allow you to get a referral fee for helping buyers find the product. Amazon and ebay both have affiliate programs which pay you a commission whenever you send a buyer their way. Lots of smaller online stores and suppliers will also run their own affiliate programs. Niches like pharmaceuticals can payout huge commissions, like the UniqueHoodia weight loss suppliment.

#3 – Dropshipping. You can run your own online store, without having to carry you own stock. No warehouse, no storeroom staff, and no packing and posting! Just collect the money, forward the order to the supplier and they pack and ship to your customer.

There’s heaps more, but this three will give you something to think about and get started. Enjoy!

Start learning about weight loss

One of the fastest growing industries today is the health and wellness field. Mainly because our waistlines are growing so fast! America, closely followed by the rest of the world too, is swelling as we eat more and exercise less. It’s a pretty sad situation that the world has gotten into.

This give anyone who wants to work from home a great opportunity as there are loads of potential ways to may money in the fitness industry. Some of those things are:

  • Becoming a personal trainer and coaching from home
  • Starting an ecommerce website selling weight loss products
  • Blogging about weight loss and using affiliate marketing for extra revenue
  • Test and review fitness products
  • Start your own boot camp!

I’ll get into the specifics of some of these niches in future blog posts, so stay tuned. Or get creative and come up with your own ideas. It’s easy to work from home!
