Need An Affiliate Marketing How To Guide?
Who are the people looking for an affiliate marketing how to guide? The ones I’ve talked to about learning to do something on line and make an income come from these categories:
- Sick and tired of a commute that keeps getting longer
- Too sick to go to work (chronic fatigue and other auto immune or anxiety disorders
- Work in a shrinking industry
- Want to get ready now for retirement and relocation to a cheaper economy
Why would someone’s commute get longer? Right now rental costs are skyrocketing in some areas. That means that when a rental increase happens, people may elect to move farther out from central. They need the cheaper rent, but will have a grueling commute if they can’t get a job where they have to live.
The people who suffer from the chronic exhausting auto immune system conditions aren’t helpless. But given the ongoing treatments and periodic flare ups, many need remote jobs (work at home for a company).
Those who can’t get those have asked me about how to learn about affiliate marketing.
Encore Careers After 50
“In the first decade of this century, America lost 56,190 factories, 15 a day.” Industry Week reported in 2016.
Carrier in Indiana paid workers $20 an hour but elected to move to Monterrey, Mexico where workers would get $3 an hour.
Workers “openly wept as United Technologies shattered their hopes, their dreams, their means to pay middle-class mortgages.” (United Technologies owns Carrier).
“Carrier took $5. 1 million of those tax credits in 2013.” Those were tax credits “established specifically to ensure that green manufacturing jobs remained in the United States.”
A different way to outsource jobs is for a company to lay off skilled workers and hire temps. They can use them weekly as needed, no commitment, no benefits. And at a lower wage.
If a person is over 50, they aren’t willing to have that happen again! You wouldn’t, would you?
I’ve told my friends (I’m not a career consultant or anything) to look at learning to blog, and develop a business on line. During the next few years while they take what they can in terms of employment, they could end up making a real income on their computers.
Stay with me or scroll down. I am going to tell you where to get the how to guide for that!
Jobs For Seniors Over 60 Working From Home
Driving Jobs For Retirees
I had looked into this category for a friend recently. I’m not going to recommend Lyft or Uber. There are too many complaints about those companies with many accounts of people averaging $2 an hour.
What was more appealing were driving jobs with transit companies for seniors who qualified – Medicare beneficiaries. There was another area of transit to transport rehab patients to the correct facilities which could be longer trips and paid for mileage covered as well as an hourly wage.
Part Time Jobs For Older Workers
“Part-time jobs are more likely to be lower-level positions in industries like retail and health care. And even for these positions, older workers must still brush up on computer skills and evaluate whether they need to expand their skill sets. But with a bit of insight and creativity, older workers can land part-time jobs that provide stimulation and challenges – and pay more than minimum wage.” – from Monster dot com.
Five Popular Online Jobs For Retired Persons
The AARP site has a good page with elaborations on the following categories:
- Customer service representative
- Online Juror (I find this one fascinating!)
- Virtual Asistant
- Online Tutor with or without certification. If you can tutor math and Physics or SAT prep you’ve struck gold.
This AARP page also mentions Christine Durst, an internet fraud and safety expert and cofounder of RatRaceRebellion.com, a website that screens job leads on home-based jobs. Good to know someone is taking care of the frauds and scams aspect!
How To Make Money By Working Online
Maybe you haven’t been suddenly laid off, nor are you partially disabled or sickly, and you don’t have a terrible commute.
