So the good news is you have retired. The bad news is, you wish you had more money.
Well, if you want to make some extra money when retired, I can help you with that.
Have you ever heard of affiliate marketing. It is a way to make money online without having to put out a lot of money for start-up cost. You don’t have to design products like an inventor or purchase products to resale. You can work from the comforts of your home.
Make money when retired in your pajamas!!
You work from home, you just need a computer and internet access. No cost involved like setting up a brick and mortar business, which at this point in time who would want to deal with that. With the restrictions due Covid19, now is not the ideal time to start a brick and mortar business, that’s for sure.
There are so many advantages to an online business. Thanks to the internet, businesses have taken on a whole new meaning.
You set your own time frame, how many hours you want to devote to this, how much money you want to invest in this endeavor, if any.
There is a wealth of information out there on how to get an online or affiliate marketing business up and running.
Don’t expect to get rich quick!
Good things take time and making money online is not any different. You need to learn the process, do the work and write content or do YouTube videos to become successful.
But, did I tell you it could be a lot of fun
When researching it, just be careful not to get caught up in any of the “Gurus” sales pitch. Stay clear of the ones who promise you fancy cars, mansions, and boats. And how to get rich quick with the click of a button or two.
There is work involved and it can get frustrating at times, but it will keep your mind sharp and give you a purpose and drive to accomplished something worthwhile. And just think of the sense of accomplishment when you succeed.
How many retired people can say that they have their own website. I know one of my sons told me that he had a lot of friends that thought they were computer geeks, but none of them had ever built a website. I know it’s easier now than it was to get a site up and running, but I still think it is a big accomplishment.
Yes, it can be completely free.
You can do it at your leisure and you can do it for free. There are many sites where you can get up and running for free. But you might be better off to purchase your own domain so it can’t be taken away from you.
Today, getting set up with a website or blog is very easy. It’s not very hard to do at all.
When I started my business, I didn’t even know how to copy and paste, so you can do this with very few computer skills. And you will be surprised at how much you will learn as you build your business, because, yes, it is a business and should be treated as such.
You can start a blog and share your hobbies or interests with others.
If you have a love of gardening that is a great place to start. But narrow it down to a specific plant, flower or technique.
You will be amazed at what you can write about. This is called a specific niche.
A niche is a specific category that you are going to specialize in.
The most popular ones or “evergreen ones” are the Health, Wealth, and Relationship niches. If you can find something interesting in one of those site to write content about, good for you. For instance, in the health niche you can write about weight loss, exercise, bodybuilding, supplements, diabetes, or many other illnesses. Just make sure your information is on point and very factual. You can promote supplements, even cannabis. Which is legal now.
Do you have a dog, another great niche. How to train your German Short haired Pointer or Poodle. Getting the picture?
Do you like sports or do you participate in any sport? Maybe golf? That could be a niche.
There are many articles showing you how to get started making money on line. But, Buyer Beware, there are many so called “gurus” out there trying to sell you the next best system. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. So be very careful.
But, I personally think the honest and most through training is Wealthy Affiliate. They leave no stone unturned to help you get a successful business that you can be very proud of up and running.
