Revenue From WWW - E-Commerce For Stay At Home Mums And Dads

Updated on July 2, 2018

Earning Via Online Business - Ways To Make Money On The Internet

Okay, it's e-commerce all right. Life is so much easier with this new fad. The emergence of the Internet did it all. One could buy or sell just about anything with utmost ease. And this concept, in fact has also paved the way for a new kind of employment.

Job opportunities which does not require that you leave home and commute to and from an office. You can do it all by yourself, from your home! From the confines and comfort of your home, you can get "employed!"

By whom, you may ask! By your very own self! Indeed? Indeed! Yes, you employ yourself and you start to work. Confusing, huh? Well, it's just that you are employed but you have no boss. YOU are your own boss!

This kind of work opportunity requires some thinking, planning, and of course a little bit of computer knowledge. You've got to learn how to, and that's it! Once you learn how to, it's only a matter of application.

Stay At Home Mums, Dads, Sons, And Daughters

Challenging it is, as much as it is lucrative. You need to learn. You can be taught how to do this all, but it's far better you teach yourself. Yes, that way you master it all and changing trends cannot put you down. You know how to flex with the tide.

There are many success stories, but the fact is only three percent of those who attempt this succeed. The balance ninety seven per cent take longer to achieve! Well, the good thing about failure is that you need only one blow of success to destroy it!

Now that you are all confused, just continue reading and you will discover how the game starts and goes on. This online game that eventually leads to success. Once you get on board you will never stop ... even if you succeed!

Internet Revenue Awaits You

Work Opportunities

From Your Home Office You Will Soon Be Your Own Boss!

You have already started your own research online. You are determined to figure it out all by yourself. You subscribe to the various newsletters that are designed to keep you and the others like you informed of what's happening online.

You never hit the unsubscribe button. You are eager to learn. Every new theory or offer only triggers off your thinking and takes you to a higher level.

You receive an interesting e-mail. You open it and click on a link within. Slowly a page launches, and then you exclaim "Oh no! Here's another one of these get rich quick programs!

Stay at home mums ... that's the phrase used as the "bait" as you chose to call it. Another plan to bleed your wallet." You tell yourself firmly "do not fall for these tricks!"

Now you hit the big "X." Clever you! You certainly did the right thing by steering clear of what you call "scams."

You are experienced! Wiser! That is why you reacted that way. Wisdom is your greatest asset! You have earned it too ... via experience of course!

Previously you purchased an e-book that simply stated in the splash page that advertised it, that you could make money within twenty four hours. You fell flat for it!

Now 2400 hours later nothing has happened! That is exactly what has made you much wiser. However, you know very well that you will strike the right formula sooner or later. You are indeed confident, and quite right too!

Just Your Computer Or Laptop, And Then Begins Your Long Stay At Home!

Can you or can't you? ... No you cannot! ... Yes you can! ... and it goes on and on ... Well, if you already belong to that 3% of online marketers who make money online, without much or any effort you are indeed blessed.

Otherwise it is advisable that you do not stop exploring. Seek, and thou shalt find! If you think you are nearly there. you probably started four years ago, and did not feel the time passing while you were exploring! That is exactly what happens when you start on your quest.

The fact remains that even today, according to unconfirmed statistics only 3% of those who attempt to make money actually succeed.

Although this is not another "how to" article, I would at this point like to talk some more on my observations on making money harnessing the power of the Internet.

Whether you are a stay at home mum, or a stay at home dad the same principles apply. The Internet does not discriminate by gender!

Your Office/Work Station At Home

home is where your heart and your home office is - learning to earn money online is a task you need to take up - start slowly, then steady up

Online Work - Get Rich Slowly!

According to some, If you do make about $250 - $500 per month with whatever you are doing online, you do not fall into the category of 3% who have succeeded.

The Internet is a powerful tool. So powerful that it certainly is capable of delivering the goods if you turn towards it for sustenance.

Attempting to emulate all the successful guys and gals online is a long journey although it starts with just one mouse click.

What's the big hurry, you may ask yourself, I would rather get rich slowly and learn all the way by experiencing and experimenting online than participate in some get rich quick scheme where I will only have to follow zombie-like instructions!

A good choice indeed! Stick to it I would say!

Online Research Is A Must

the Internet is indeed a great tool and e-commerce is the future of all kinds of business - start exploring the world wide web and get on board fast - the WWW is your gateway to the world of modern commerce

One Of The Many Advertising Methods

Beginners' Guide To E-Bay

Google Adsense, Ebay, Internet Marketing Reviews ... Much More To Do Really

But listen to this! On the Internet NOBODY FAILS! Yes, NOBODY FAILS! How come? Because, the Internet and e-commerce put together is an ongoing thing.

The curiosity that is generated from the first time you saw a web page making reference to getting rich online and having all the wealth you ever wanted and could dream of, keeps you afloat online forever.

Another reason is that whatever you are doing online will be within the line of vision of a potential of two billion eyeballs. So if you are selling something online, just imagine the tremendous potential you are toying with.

Would you like to start with Google AdSense or affiliate marketing? You need to first of all know what they are and how they work. That would help a great deal. Remember you have already displayed a dislike for zombie-like actions!

Basically a work at home e-commerce book tells you how to enroll, with whom to enroll, and how to select whatever you want to sell. Most of them also show you how, when, and where to advertise.

Otherwise you will be directed to another e-book which will show you how to advertise.

Remember that all e-commerce activities succeed IF you advertise correctly. Advertising is the most vital part of e-commerce. Those who fail, keep failing until they find the type of advertising that works.

Affiliate marketing is the basically the spine of all e-commerce activities. Selling products and services on behalf of somebody who creates or produces such products and services is what affiliate marketing is all about.

If you have your own products and services to sell online, of course with the capacity to keep on "churning out" your stuff as the demand requires, well and good. Otherwise it would be indeed wise to sell on behalf of somebody else.

That "somebody else" will have to keep producing as fast as you keep selling! But ... if the product concerned is an information product represented by an e-book, duplicating would not be a problem at all. Millions of copies can be "churned out" without any cost at all! Got it?

Now, would you like to reverse your decision and start selling your own information products? Well, hang on and get the hang of it before you start producing your own information products.

It would be the best bet to start selling other people's stuff first and gain some valuable experience in the art of online selling before you launch on something big.

In your journey you will be compelled to experiment with dozens of online advertising methods until you discover for yourself the secrets.

The Emergence Of E-Commerce And The World Wide Web

What are your views on e-commerce, and how do you think its impact would be on the modern world.

See results

Advertising Methods

By prolonged exposure and experimenting with various advertising methods suggested in the various online articles you come across, you will develop the capacity to figure out what to do when one form of advertising ceases to be effective.

It is up to you always to experiment with available data, and discover. The right formula for online success cannot be taught. It can only be learned.

Confused? Well what I mean to say is, you will eventually discover the right advertising methods most suited for your type of business or niche.

Well as long as you browse the Internet you will keep on exploring the various programs which spring up from time to time.

As long as you sign up for some of the free programs online or even spend a couple of bucks to experiment, you will continue to learn.

You cannot, you can never say you have failed online as long as you continue to explore.

E-commerce Definition

Selling something is what e-commerce is all about, and the only way you can do this is by utilising the right advertising methods.

They call it effective advertising. Some realize this at the very beginning. Some do after a spell of exposure.

The longer you are online, the more you will understand the mechanism of the Internet and associated topics. The more you understand, the more you will want to try out your methods.

The more you try out your own innovative methods, the more you will learn why you have not succeeded. The more you learn why you have not succeeded, the more you will know how to succeed.

Success depends on utilising the right advertising methods. Remember the Internet is a game of numbers, and advertising is the most important part of e-commerce.

So, start right now on that important mission that you have undertaken ... to get rich slowly ... and if you are one of those who have tried and not yet succeeded, bear in mind that you have not failed either.

      I haven't given up, but I sure as hell haven't succeeded either! Still thinking I would make more $$$ if I opened up my own blog/website to compliment my hubpages work, but I just don't think I have the time right now to dedicate to it, maybe in the future.

      Insightful article qs and upbeat!

      Hi Create a page, How are you doing?

      Thanks a lot for the kind words and the unique form of encouragement you have been giving me!

      I do remember seeing some bands dressed to perform or pose! All the members of a band dressed in identical clothes. This included the Beatles, the Monkees, Dave Clark 5, Herman's Hermits ... lots of them really!

      Cheers! :)

      Hi quicksand: Thank you so much for a very well written and informative article. Everything you mentioned actually describes internet marketing on the internet more accurately than I have ever seen written by anyone else. Bravo!!!

      I do a 'little' internet marketing myself, and I am beginning to learn how it works. It has not been easy, but all my current clients have linked with me only because of my work on the internet. I think I could do much better, too, if I had better internet service.

      I like your Beatles video. It reminded me of the days when rock bands used to wear formal wear to perform. I don't think we'll ever see those days again, do you? Keep writing...keep are doing an excellent job.

      I guess it's a question of trying, waiting and constantly evolving - the Internet has so much to offer by way of work - if only you look in the right direction and outperform everyone else when the opportunity arises!

      I like your last line about those that have tried and not succeeded have not failed either. If you have the determination to keep going despite all odds, very rarely will such determination not be rewarded with success. :)

      Hi Dottie!

      You are certainly bound to succeed and join the elite 3% of online marketers very soon!

      As for me, I FAILED ... in the hub challenge of course! I managed only 14 hubs out of the 30 that was required.

      At least I made 15 different images, one for each hub, and I've still got one left! Anyway thanks for encouraging me during this period. Cheers!

      Good to know I'm not a failure! I've been sidetracked on my own work and helping a friend online for the past 8 months who if anyone will succeed in the 3% will be him. You know him, (Arnold-smart)LOL.
