Learn about the best, free work from home online opportunity available on the internet. Whether you hope to be a stay at home mom/dad, or have a child with special needs, being able to have a flexible schedule and spend more time with your kids is extremely valuable.
Many people have become recently aware of what is being advertised as the “Google work from home” computer opportunity. Some sites are even trying to scam people into buying kits or packages that are said to instantly make them money. Do not purchase one of these!
Despite this misrepresentation of how to earn extra income from Google online, there are a couple of legitimate ways to do this. The first option is to start an online business website this does have start up costs for things such as web hosting and domain name purchasing, but you should always know what you are paying for. Purchasing some random kit?? I don’t think so.
The other option that would be considered a free work from home online opportunity is to start a blog. This can be done with www.blogger.com as I have used to create a personal blog about raising my son. It can also be done with wordpress.com Your website or blog can be about anything you want, including; child behavior, a favorite hobby, your children or family, favorite recipes, movie reviews, favorite vacation spots, etc. The possibilities are endless. I have one friend that is writing a blog about her journey with cancer and another writing one about their family's journey in adoption.
Once you have acquired a number of entries in your blog or produced so many pages on your website, you can put up Google Ads or use contextual advertising, such as infolinks, to earn anywhere from 10 cents to 10 dollars every time someone clicks on one of the ads. In addition to this income opportunity you can recommend products from affiliate programs, such as Amazon.com, that allow you to earn a commission if an individual clicks on the product and makes a purchase.
Now, to be realistic, this is not a money making opportunity that will earn you a substantial salary overnight. It requires time and effort on your part to create regular posts and build a group of followers that come back on a regular basis or subscribe to your RSS feed. Once traffic really picks up, you may even be contacted by advertisers wishing to pay for advertising space on your blog.
While the upside to this is that you are able to create a free work from home online job, the downside to doing a blog instead of a website is that it may take a very long time to build traffic. Visitor traffic is absolutely necessary to earning money. No visitors mean no clicks and therefore no money. It doesn’t happen overnight and it will most definitely take time on your part with regular entries, but the point is that it is still possible.
Just check out one of my favorite blogs Gluten Free Goddess to see all of the different ways to earn money by the ads and advertisements. If you have a child that's on a gluten free diet, you will likely love her recipes as well!
I personally have chosen to create a website with Solo Build It! and do a blog. Currently, the majority of my income comes from the website, which is likely due to the large number of pages I have that are getting me lots of targeted search engine traffic. I also realize that this is where I devote most of my time, so I probably could put a little more effort into regular blogging and see better results.
Creating a website or blog may not be your thing and that’s okay, so be sure to check out these other really great work at home jobs:
