I just did a search online with the above title and similar phrases. Taking the first ten results, I can categorize most of them in the “delusions” list.

Wouldn’t you prefer to earn money at home online with realistic expectations?

Earn Money At Home Online With – What Exactly?

The first result tells us as a number one of fifty, “start a blog or online business”. Sure just go do that. His further instructions are useful and not at all deceptive. He advises you to click over  Bluehost and it will cost you only $2.95 a month to have a blog there. This is called hosting.

That is a great price. He further instructs with screen shots, how to get to the control panel and install WordPress.

Huh – whaaa? If you are beginner, this is difficult. Not that you can’t figure it out, but there are easier ways.

Notice Your Dream Ideas – Their Value

Have you ever done two or more weeks of the following:

  • Travel overseas
  • Camping
  • Barge tour
  • River cruise
  • Ocean cruise
  • RV tour

And, when it’s time to go home you thought

“I wish I could do that and somehow incorporate it into my job!”

The good news is that you can! Writing about things you love, in a specific way, can result in income.

If you were to click on the “click here to build a blog” link above, you would have to simply give a name and email address to begin. No credit card or payment method is required.

You will be instructed to pick a niche, or narrow topic of interest that you might promote to others.

Then you will pick a domain name like “myfavoritetopic” for what will become a dot com registered name, that shows on the internet.

You will be shown how to put up a couple of legally required pages, and be given a template for them. All written for you, and you will insert your blog name where appropriate.

Your hand will be held all the way through this, with videos, and much Q&A in the discussions you can access.

Dream Ideas On A Solid Foundation

 

Firstly, how could you ever manifest an income earning “vacation life” as in the day dreaming above?

Could you write about travel and make a commission on sales of items people need to travel?

Could you write about camping and make commissions on sales of

Gotta have one of these camping canopies! Click to see.

Wow – a rooftop light weight cargo bag! I need one! 

Those links go to Amazon and are called  affiliate links.

That means that if a reader buys from there, I get a commission (or you will, on your blog). More details are outlined in my article How To Learn Online Marketing For Seniors.

I won’t repeat it all here. And more, you don’t even need to know any of that when you start a blog. You will be walked through every step in its proper sequence, and you have seven days to devote to this, with no financial investment.

One important step is to fill out your profile. You will make some good buddies in this community. They will help you make the best use of  your free trial period when you have questions.

Other Common Suggestions For Making Money Online

 

Filling out surveys is a big one. You can do that eight hours a day and earn $5.00 Amazon gift cards, or other coupon type things. That will never grow to be an income where you won’t have to worry about paying the bills.

You are interested in earning a living online, right?

Not in just making a couple of hundred dollars/Euros/Pounds a month.

As a senior needing more money in retirement, you won’t qualify for most of these surveys. They are designed for people who are building or restoring households with large consumer goods. Qualifying for surveys takes more time than most of the surveys.

There are good suggestions on this list of fifty, and the best ones require technical know how, certain educational levels, writing experience (and talent) and virtual administrative skills.

Those may be good ones for you. You will be a freelancer, and will have to promote yourself and find your own jobs. Check out my article How To Make  A Living On Fiverr.

This web site is all about how to make a good blog.

The focus of the blog training I recommended with the “click here” link is a business focus. The building steps are deliberately selected so you can develop your site in a friendly and welcoming manner, yet lead to income.

Those are the blogs you prefer, right? Informative, but friendly and accessible?

Make Work Fun

 

If you haven’t reached retirement age with $1.5 million in savings, you are going to be working.

Whether you’re over 60 now, or younger, it is a good time to plan how you will earn money. If you really love your nine to five job you can just keep going until “something happens”

Often jobs end without warning. A business gets sold and moved to another location. The management decides to get rid of everyone and hire younger people for half the pay.

Blogging is work and requires consistency and time management. It can be fun! Here is a little history about blogging

You are your own boss however, and you can adjust your schedule to what is comfortable for you. You can play the music you like while working. You can take a break and go run the dog.

You can RV around the country and keep working. You can blog on a train!

You can re-design your life according to your own interests and health needs.

Doesn’t that smell like freedom?

  1. There’s actually a lot of ways for seniors to make money online. Like you said, filling out surveys won’t result in large amounts of income, but there are other ways. If they enjoy crafting or a hobby that involves them creating stuff (blankets, clothing etc. . .), then they could sell their stuff on eBay, Amazon, Etsy and so on.

    • Hi JF! There are indeed different ways to make money online. Individuals have different talents, and they must choose according to their highest interest, and what they have some experience in.

    • Hello Joseph, and thanks for your input here. I do strive to help seniors (and the disabled confined to their home) find a way to earn money with their computers. We all have some things in the way of interests or hobbies that can become a subject of a marketing blog.
