Can You Really Work From  Home Online?

   So picture this, there are 3,339, 502, 461 people online when I last checked, each of these persons are searching for that “right thing”. This “right thing” could be what YOU are selling in the future.

Just imagine this could be a market you could participate in with your computer as an online business at home. Nowadays the majority of people have a computer and an internet connection at home. Which makes it possible to work from home and start an online business easily, but to succeed and earn an income from an online business is more difficult.

One idea for an online home based business is working as an affiliate marketer. How do you become an affiliate marketer, you own a website upon which you write articles in your favoured particular niche, for example a breed of dog.


How does Affiliate Marketing Work

You review a particular dog bowl for your breed of dog on your website. As you write the article you mention that you bought this dog bowl from “ABC” at a good price, if you include a link to “ABC” other owners of your dog breed can buy the bowl from “ABC”.Picture of A Double dog bowl on stand When the dog owners buy from “ABC” you get paid commission from this company for sending customers to their website.

 Now remember there are millions of people using the internet so if you can target the right audience then what an opportunity to have a lucrative income!

O.K, let’s buy a domain name for my website, write some content, get an affiliate link from one of the many affiliate link sites and . . .

WAIT where is all my traffic? . . . If it was only that easy.

Remember I said to succeed and earn an income is slightly more difficult. Not only is there a problem with traffic but do you have good keywords, is your SEO up to date, is your domain name relevant to your passion, is your content original all of this and more will affect your website rankings with the major search engines.

So how do You achieve this.
