Not giving up the fight until I get paid!!!
It is amazing how much things change with progress. As countries develop, we become more dependent on cell phones and other aspects of technology. The current trend and desire for many of us hubbers and other bloggers, is the prospects of making money online.
What drives us?
For most of us, well for me at least, it is the need to make some extra money. The undeniable truth however, is that while it is possible, it is not a simple close your eyes, get paid situation. You actually have to put in a lot of work; it also calls for research, patients and the willingness to try new things.
I must tell you, until I decided to try this avenue, I really never put much thought into writing much less building my own website. In the last year. I did take a little break to complete my Masters and to get married :):). I have published, more than 10 hubs (I know still a small number considering) and created my own website (link is below) and started work on one for my husbands business. This of course was while working full time and raising a toddler.
While I still haven't been paid a dime (earned about $0.45 so far with Adsense. This is with no effort on my part), I'm not discouraged. I read other hubbers experiences and pull my courage from them. I will get there some day.
What other options are there?
Apart from writing, how else are people finding ways to earn money online? Simple...through affiliate programmes. If you aren't already aware, you develop a website and then enter into agreements with other companies to place their ads on your site. This is something that you can research on your own for FREE or enrol in one of the thousands of work from home programmes and pay them for the same information. At the end of the day I guess that you would be paying them for the convenience of not having to do the research.
Another option would be to join a freelance group, there are a whole host of them out there that are free to join and to have some good opportunities.
