How to Make Money Online
Making Money on the Internet: A Guide for the New Online Entrepreneur
With the rough economy and the difficulty many Americans are having finding work in the traditional settings many are interested in finding work on the internet. Some may chose this option as a way to make ends meet until they find a traditional job in their field, while others are finding that the flexibility and convenience working online provides make this choice a better fit in this new pensionless, benefit-less, society we are fast becoming.
Freelancer.com makes it easy to signup and start applying for jobs in just minutes.
Freelancer allows online job seekers an opportunity to bid on an extensive amount of jobs in many different areas. They also offer contests, where you can submit your project, and the person whose project is chosen receives the listed monetary prize. This option may be good for those who don't have the confidence yet to bid for some of the other jobs offered. They also have a referral program for freelancers who recruit new job seekers.
Elance is another place to seek online employment.
Drop Shipping can provide an At-Home Income.
Doba offers many discounted products for dropshippers.
A friend of my sisters was doing some drop shipping to make some extra money. He really enjoyed it, and while it didn't make him rich, he was glad for the extra income. I havn't tried this personally, but as you don't purchase any inventory in advance there seems to be little risk involved in trying.
Other books available on working online
There are so many books out there on how to make money on the internet. Many of Amazon.com's books have a "look inside" feature. I highly recommend browsing through the available pages to get a feel for the authors style to see if it is a good fit to you before making your purchase. You can also see if the book is available at your local library. You can always purchase the books that you really like after returning them to the library.
