You’re here! Welcome! I would imagine that you’re looking for a way to make some money from home. Specifically, you might be interested in making money online somehow. After all, you have a computer and the internet, why not utilize them? I’m glad you’re here! Read on to find out my favorite ideas about how to make money online and work from home! If I can do this, anyone can!



Best Foot Forward

There is great news! First of all, you’re interested in how you can earn some cash from your pajamas. It’s possible! I think the best place to begin is to realize what your goals are and write them down. Start with your financial goals. How much are you hoping to earn each month? What would a year look like? Are you dreaming big? Please do! If you can visualize it, you can achieve it, so don’t cut yourself short! Next, what kind of time can you commit to making this work? Write it all down. Go ahead. I’ll wait!




Once you have a vision and some goals, it’s time to focus on those. What will it take to reach your milestones? The reason I want you to dream big is that what I’m about to share with you will give you all the tools necessary to make those big dreams possible. So, back to your notebook! Write down something so great; things you never dreamed possible. Is it to own a house on the beach? Travel the world? Be able to pay for your children’s college tuition? Build a remote cabin high in the mountains? Cross off those little goals, and make room for the BIG!



Your Options

I’m going to level with you here – there are literally thousands of websites out there promising you this or that, or the fact that you could get-rich-quick and have money in the bank by the time you wake up in the morning. If I promised you anything of the sort, it would be a lie. Quite frankly, it’s not possible to become a part of those ‘promising programs’ and make a ton of money very quickly. I’m here to be completely honest with you, always. It’s imperative that you have the mindset of positivism, as you’ll need it going forward. Before you read on, please commit to not giving in to those get-rich-quick schemes. At least hear me out.



The Online World Is Huge

As I mentioned before, you can do a quick online search and come up with tons of people making promises. Be very careful. What kinds of things are you interested in? I can attest to signing up for surveys (pennies and time), website/app testers (some money but few opportunities), transcription (little money for the amount of time), and blogging (affiliate marketing has loads of options). So, if you’re interested in what has or hasn’t worked for me, please read on.



Blogging And Affiliate Marketing

I’ve done the research and even dabbled in some ways of how to make money online and work from home. I can tell you that everything has been a waste of time. I’m not saying everything I tried was a scam. I’m saying it wasn’t worth my time and effort that went into it, for little to no return. Perhaps my struggle was that I wasn’t willing to invest anything upfront. I’m looking at that as a benefit, as I was never duped into spending money on a scam. However, once I realized that I wasn’t loving what I had signed up for (several times), I had to find something more. I wanted a way to make money online and from home. Could it really be so difficult to find something reliable? No! It turned out that I was just a couple clicks away from the start of a magical future! After all, I loved writing, editing, and publishing content, so the idea of blogging didn’t scare me at all!



Say, what?

I found a wonderful blog post while doing a search one day. I was desperate to find something. I had turned to search for editing or freelance writing jobs and my search was leading me down one rabbit hole after the others. I was just about ready to give up for good when I fell upon a blog that promised me something amazing – two websites, training and courses, and a like-minded community of folks – to help me on a journey to becoming an entrepreneur. All this – for FREE! There was one problem. I didn’t really know what an entrepreneur was. But thanks to Google, I found out everything I was wondering, and I wanted to be my own boss. After all, that is one of the perks of working from home!



The Starting Line

For me, I jumped right in. I was in a place in my life when I had the time I could commit and I wanted the opportunity to turn out well for me and my family. I followed the training. I created the two websites I was allowed (because you will likely find you need a website for an online business). I met some pretty amazing people who were willing to help me when I had questions. Are you interested in learning about how I learned all I know?

But what happens after you sign up? Well, my friend, what happens is simply this: magical opportunities!

You could monetize a blog via affiliate companies, you could become an affiliate for the company you’re a part of – upon signing up from the button above, you can create and sell your own physical or digital products, etc. I’m not even joking a little bit when I tell you that you can turn this online business into anything you are dreaming of. Glance back at those notes on financial and time goals!



The Best Option For Me

Once I signed up and got my own blog websites created, I spent some time within the online community at Wealthy Affiliate. There, I was lucky enough to meet some pretty special people who have helped propel me to new heights. In fact, I’ve met a friend from Northern Ireland, and we have co-authored an eBook together. We are separated by countries and an ocean, but we have made it work! Did I ever see myself as an author? Sure – in my dreams! However, I’ve been more than pleased to be able to make that dream a reality. For me, my success is in the form of digital marketing. I think I’ll give myself a new title of ‘Digital Marketing Entrepreneur’. Learning how to create digital products for a particular audience has been both challenging and rewarding, but for the long term, I’m seeing the potential.

Your Future Is Up To You

I could write for hours about things I’ve learned along the way. However, that would bore you to tears. Please know that you can get a start as an entrepreneur. You have the opportunity to build a business that will earn you money as you sleep. Wouldn’t that be amazing? I would definitely encourage you to grab your free access to the platform that I learned so much from. Don’t delay. It’s definitely a marathon and not a sprint, but if you’re committed to making it happen, abundant success can and will be yours! Trust me, if I could figure this out, anyone can! There are many ways as to how to make money online and work from home. To your success!


Go in the direction of your dreams! The BIG ones!

    Hello Heidi, there is a lot to prepare for in an online business. The zeal to make money mostly overshadows the fact that we need to work for that money and there are steps needed to be taken before the money comes. I am glad you mentioned best foot first. It’s always better we take the right step in this course and be careful with every decision made so we don’t have regrets. Cheers.

    Thanks for this enlightening post on how to make money online and work from home. Some years back, I worked in an office where the work was just too much for us – to the extent that I did not have much time to take care of my family. I quit the job because a friend introduced me to an online business. I started it by opening my own blog and I have learned so much. Thanks for sharing this!   It’s really a good thing to be able to work from home.

    Wow! Great article here, I really enjoyed reading it all along, I think we all have that struggling and confused time period when we are searching on how to make online, I have heard many confess how they ended up to unworthy platforms, I am also one of them, personally I had registered more than 20 online money making platforms without any positive research, but finally I ended up at wealthy affiliate, currently I am on my third year, I can’t regret being a member here, with the training and community support I receive, I don’t think there is other better place than here at wealthy affiliate. I can truly testify the truth in this article. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful article to the public, I am sure it will be of great help to many people out there.

    1. admin says:

  9. Roslinecar says:

    Thankyou for posting this insightful information, it gets really tiring to sit at home sometimes when the kids are of to school and I don’t have any special agenda, doing one or two online businesses will help me get engaged and also make some money to finance some things. Its always good to make research and findings about any business you want to do online, I’ve been a victim of online scam and the feeling is not good, so to be on the safe side 

    1. admin says:

      You raise some great points about making money online and having the freedom to work from home.  I’m very leery about things that sound too good to be true.  Scams are legit and we need to be extra cautious!  Very well said!  Good luck to you moving forward!

    Hello dear friend,

    This looks like a very good opportunity you are sharing right now. However I have been wondering how possible it would be and how long it will take before I can start making money online. I have read a lot about blogging and it seem like a difficult stuff. Can anyone actually blog?

    1. admin says:

      Of course!  Anyone can blog.  As long as you have ideas that you want to get out there, I say go for it!  Select a niche and build upon it.  I’d definitely begin with Wealthy Affiliate and learn how to begin your working from home lifestyle.  It could take up to 6-12 months to begin making money.  It’s not a get-rich quick scheme!!  Best wishes as you move forward making money online!

I’m a complete novice but I’m super keen to get started and am exploring the online affiliate marketing area. The issue I have is there seems to be so much conflicting advice about what to do and how to do it, everyone I reach out to wants to sell me a course!but I know with this half of my problems are already solved.

    Hi Heidi. I am a musician and a song writer. I have toiled around the internet for a very long time now looking for opportunities with which I can make money online and just like you, many of these opportunities prove abortive, some are waste of my precious time while others do not worth the attention I am giving; I mean little money for my precious time. I am interested in this blogging thingy. Let me see what’s in that link. I think I can Monetize my music with it writing articles and music lyrics. Nice idea.

    1. admin says:

      You will absolutely be able to monetize your site with music!  I think you’re on to something brilliant!  Making money online is definitely possible if you have the persistence and commitment to make it happen!  I wish you much luck!

  15. Alblue says:

    Hi Heidi, thank you so much for sharing your story here. After experiencing so many bad things in my corporate career, I’ve decided to try work from home. I thought it was almost impossible unless you’ve become internet celebrity, but blogging seems a good choice for me. I love writing, so I will try to purse career in blogging. How long it is to start earning money with blogging? Thanks

    1. admin says:

      Hi, Alblue!

      I wish you so much success as you begin your journey of working from home!  Blogging is a great choice, especially since you love writing!  Depending on how quickly you can build an audience and what types of affiliate products you choose to promote, will depend on how quickly you can earn money. 

      For me, it took a few months.  I’ve heard that the average is 6-12 months of hard work to see your efforts begin to pay off.  Good luck to you!!
