How to Earn Online When You Have So Little Time

Updated on July 29, 2017

How I wish I could work for full time online but I know it would not be practical to give up my permanent position in the government for something that has no certainty. I am aware that working online does not give an assurance of a lifetime career as compared to that of a government work which has a security of tenure. This means that an employee cannot be dismissed from the services except in exceptional and specified cases.

On the other hand, working online has been my best discovery which I considered as the greatest achievement in this life. This discovery added color to my life and make me proud of myself especially when some people from the place would come to me to solicit help about online work. I feel honored whenever this thing happened. I have a feeling that I am very blessed.

Truly, online working has brought great changes in my life and I am so thankful and happy about it.


As most of us know that being an employee requires that we stay a minimum of 8 hours in our workplace. Not to mention the travel time if our workplace is located in another place. For me, I have to travel 3 to 4 hours a day to and from my work place.

Inadequacy of time to cover all online activities that we have is one of the major constraints for achieving a successful online career. I am aware too that I am not the only one having this problem. Nevertheless, we should never stop from learning and adopting new and legal ways or strategies in order to earn more from our online activities.

Doing online work on a part time is helping me a lot in terms of additional income I can derive from it. Such amount, maybe small but can be an additional source of fund. Just a little more hard-work, patience, determination and a little time management strategy could really be helpful.


Time Management Strategies

Here are some of the proven time management strategies that would certainly help us in one way or another. Hope this could help you.

Focus on Few Site

With so many enticing offers and opportunities, it would be very difficult to choose which one to work with, so we end up joining every site we stumble upon, thereby losing focus on what we do. Since we do not give full attention to a particular task, we ended frustrated after several attempts

I used to adopt a “join-all” strategy when I was just starting online. During that time, I didn’t know any other way of determining the legitimacy of a site aside from trying it out. Until I realized that I am wasting more time experimenting rather than actually earning. Thank God that I discovered a community, a forum site which opened my eyes to the real online world.

Although being prepared for anything that might happen anytime is a good strategy, still, maintaining and working with few sites will give us the best advantage.


Know Your Skill

By knowing on what particular activity we excel, it would be easier if for us since the task at hand is within our area of understanding. Learning new skills would likewise be a good option too if we have extra time.

Don’t force yourself in doing something we do not fully understand and/or beyond our field of interest.

Here's a simple question for you

Do you experience difficulty in allotting time for online work?

See results

Apply Multi-tasking

Base on some studies, women are far better than men in multi-tasking. So girls, this is for us.

Most of the time, I would work with 2 to 3 sites simultaneously in order to make the most of my time. One of the sites I worked with requires listening skill in order to earn and ost often, I would do this task while doing other online activities such as viewing ads.

Delegate Other Tasks

Success can be achieved with the help of every member of the family. Let us assign household tasks with everyone in the family if possible.

This way, we can devote more time with our online work

I am aware that we have different strategies in order to be successful online. I would be very glad if you can share it too.

Thank you for dropping by.

      Good tips! I have learned to multitask when I started working online. Though I am no longer a working wife I have to deal with time management too so I don´t have to neglect my other works at home. You travel too long for work. Enjoy your day!

      Some of my online friends are working on a full time online and I can see that they are earning enough. Considering the amount of dollar (42 pesos for every 1 dollar), the amount of money we can gain from this activity can certainly help us with our daily expenses. But of course a worker from our country has less opportunities as compared to residents of US. There are several sites that do not accept members from our country.

      Thank you poetryman.

      There are times when I wonder if you could get everything you need, food, water, money, online. I think you could but you would have to work pretty hard at it. I suspect that you would have to accept a lower standard of living than the average person could deal with too. Given the free samples sites and sites like Bing which will "pay" you to search, it seems like it might be doable.

      I guess most of us are having the same issue with time and wishing to extend the number of hours in a day. I have been into this situation for almost 2 years because of my present work assignment is an interior municipality. Thank you for dropping by.

      I have a big problem with time. It seems to move around me. Traveling 3 to 4 hours a day for work, that is horrible.
