Make A Living On Your Computer
Topics In This Post
If someone told you there is a way to learn how to make a living on your computer, you would want to know about it, wouldn’t you?
Probably anyone would look into that, and especially if you’re at or near retirement age. You look forward to getting away from the nine to five life.
You want to know the ways you can earn some income either at home – or maybe while traveling – doesn’t that sound good?
All the posts on this blog present a different aspect, or piece of the big picture about starting an online based business for seniors, or for anyone who needs to, or prefers to work at home.
There is training available for building a web-worthy blog which you can build upon to bring in pretty decent revenue once your site has gained presence.
This training is available at Wealthy Affiliate and I will explain how it will help you learn the real way to blog and connect with vendors of products, digital information packages, and services.
There is a volume of creators and vendors who will share revenue with you if you send buyers their way.
How can you? With your blog!
But you need to know where to start, right?
I bet you’ve seen dozens of sites telling you how to make a million, or hundreds per day, all automatic, “set and forget”.
Those cons are annoying aren’t they? Leave your intelligence at the door :).
And I’ve bought a couple of those myself. (Cringe!)
So you can simply start where you are. At whatever degree of experience you have – which may be none – working with your computer.
You’ve got a computer, an internet connection, and you’ve got time.
But that doesn’t mean you’ve got time to waste.
That’s why I recommend Wealthy Affiliate University for the ideal instruction in how to blog and earn money.
And DO a bunch of them. For real.
Because you don’t want to get scammed do you? I can promise you that unlike the hundreds of scams on the web, this site has been delivering the good stuff for years, and it has a top reputation.
How To Make Money Without Leaving The House
If you’re unable to leave the house to work anymore, or have started to think ahead about working differently when you reach retirement age, you need get the best available training to build a marketing business on line.
You may be that person who, with or without any experience doing business with a website or other computer uses, will learn exactly how to set up a blog or a few, with the correct attributes for monetizing, or, making money.
That must sound pretty exciting to you if you’ve worked the nine to five most of your adult life and have taken all the hits from the economic disasters.
That goal can be realized and it depends on you being able to set up a web site correctly.
Reports say that millions of baby boomers are retiring with barely enough income to live on. That’s really sad and kind of scary isn’t it?
Reading all those reports of seniors living on or way below the poverty line led me to write Not Enough Money In Retirement.
(That post points you to many details of how to learn to make a business oriented web site. It also features the portability of a business run from your computer.)
Make Money While Traveling Around The World
I became interested in marketing with a blog a few years ago. It seemed I kept reading about this and the success some entrepreneurs had, and they were mostly in places far away from where I was in North America. One prominent trainer lived in SE Asia with her baby then went on the move after growing from a poverty existence to great success from making and selling websites.
Through her marketers forum I met other people who were helpful, but were way ahead of me – why?
Because they could build their own websites. And I was using a free Blogger blog. I couldn’t do much with it, it was one long journal with the earlier posts disappearing at the bottom.
Blogger is different now and it’s great for hobby blogging. It is not impossible to make some money with that platform, but WordPress, used at Wealthy Affiliate, is easier to configure for marketing.
You just have to know how!
You can start learning now with no up front cost.
And I mean you get true free use of the huge Wealthy Affiliate training community!
The beginner classrooms are open to you for seven days.
Give yourself as many hours as you can with them!
In the community you can discuss your goals and dreams with site owners from Australia, the Philippines, India, Thailand, Vietnam, North America, the UK and Europe.
You get the benefits of their experiences and companionship. That’s a true bonus right there, isn’t it?
The following stories about some senior friends of mine are examples of retirement living. Your goals are unique and I hope to inspire you to shape them further.
Make Money While Traveling In Your Rv
I knew one couple who had retired, sold their home and then they bought a comfortable RV. They travel during most of the year but have favorite places where they may stay for a while.
They are also properly trained bloggers and can add to their retirement income with affiliate marketing.
Affiliate income comes from commissions paid to you when you have a reader from your blog click over to a retailer site and make a purchase.
You can GO HERE for an in-depth review of the biggest and most user-friendly training site for affiliate marketing web site construction.
This lifestyle allowed them to roam and see many places they had always wanted to visit. They could navigate the country along any route they liked, visiting family and friends on the way.
Is that freedom or isn’t it?
I know another retired person who lives in his trailer home and does day trading. He is free to travel while working daily.
Many RV parks have permanent living spots and some have a restaurant and community center. Wifi is everywhere!
Retirement RV Living
Retirement RV living is a lifestyle choice with its unique set of pros and cons just like any other.
It could be a fulfilling option for many years and its stresses probably stem from the same causes as those that occur when you live in one spot – not enough money.
Which is a problem you can solve!
(My other article about RV living is HERE. More details for you if that’s an area of interest!)
Extra money increases options and options are…Fun!
Have you ever taken an RV vacation (or a barge tour or river cruise…Any kind of vaycay) and thought “yeah I could just keep on going with this!”.
And you could if you had an extra income from working in your home with effectively designed web sites, whether it’s in your RV or dream country cottage.
If you’re going to be working after full retirement age, you can enhance your lifestyle enormously if you know how to profit with a blog. At home, on RV trips…in all the places you could possibly be!
Think back on your favorite vaycays – can you imagine doing them again while posting to a blog two or three times a week?
And reading and commenting on your fellow bloggers’ sites?
(Adding comments to blog posts and getting others to comment on yours is one technique to improve your site and its presence on line. Just one of the many things you can learn.
And a tremendous advantage is having a community for that.)
