- “Not Enough Money In Retirement”? Need help?
“Are you talking to me? You bet I do not have enough money in retirement!”
If you have never worked on the internet, never started a blog, never heard of keywords or search engine optimization – fear not!
I am going to help you with all of those things right now. First a little about me that I didn’t divulge on my About Me page.
What I didn’t really ‘fess up to on that page is, I really needed a “for dummies” training ten years ago. I would have saved so much time and money if I had known what I needed. I knew I would not have a high enough income to retire, and I did lose traction seeking the real “how-to”.
Internet Marketing For A Work From Home Business
I guarantee* you will not waste time and money like I did.
(I’m not calling you Dummy, please don’t think that. But I know there’s nothing like starting out trying to learn the in’s and out’s of blog writing for money to make you feel dumb!)
You came here for a personal reason today. Perhaps you’re:
- Under-employed (had your hours cut)
- Want to start a business
- Senior jobs after retirement is a topic on your mind
- How to earn from a blog – you want to know!
- Income after retirement – you know you won’t have enough
- Average income – retirees – you’ve read about it and it’s a nightmare
- Making a little money blogging and you’d like to up your game
- You are officially or unofficially disabled and need to increase ss income
I don’t use the word “guarantee*” lightly. I don’t know what anyone besides myself can or will do about learning, applying, improving their skills or helping others too.
Not Enough Work At Home Jobs
This factor really should be overcome in this day and age. I know a few people who can easily do ninety percent of their job at home except “they want me to go in for these stupid meetings”.
What’s stupid is not the fact of meetings, but that the meetings can all be done via skype or some other
electronic means, as you enjoy your morning coffee. But the corporate model demands close supervision and control of people, so perhaps this will never happen.
Recently at Online Work For The Disabled I cautioned job seekers to look closely at “work at home” job ads at Monster .com as some required a “% of travel”.
Yet there are senior citizen business opportunities – internet business for seniors!
You can click around this website and every article and page is directly related to online business for seniors, the disabled, those seeking encore careers after 50, or 60, or a person of any situation who simply wants to learn how to make a website that they can market from.
Internet Marketing Online Specialists
I have found a top of the line training school where you can learn from tried and proven specialists, how to
start, earn while you learn, just keep getting better at providing information to people who are shopping, looking for the best deal or specialty product, and who knows – you may be that person who has exactly the info they’re seeking.
They will buy the item they want, and clicking through to the purchase from your website earns you a commission.
This internet marketing academy is called Wealthy Affiliate and you can read a review about it here. If you want to try out that system (no cost to you) I’ll see you there!
Do I Need A Website To Be An Affiliate Marketer?
Technically, you don’t but I highly recommend it as it is the best way to create a business that will develop and last for years. Wealthy Affiliate will provide two free websites for you, and show you how to build them properly.
So once you’ve logged in to start with some free instruction (exactly the same as what the paid members start with) and you get a blog going, what connects prospective buyers with your site?
Keywords! Keywords are the words people “google” or search with online. There is a method for you to find these keywords.
How To Find The Best Keywords For Your Site
There are a few techniques you will learn, to find keywords. For example: search “patio umbrellas” and most likely amazon, Target, Walmart, and Home Depot will show. Your little blog will be down below, or several pages in. Invisible!
But, if you have an article about “wooden framed canvas patio umbrellas”, buyers looking for that particular item can find your article and consequently click over to wherever you have affiliated.
Wealthy Affiliate has a free keyword tool for their members. This tool saves a lot of time for bloggers to
pinpoint the best keywords/phrases that they need to write into their article content, and use in the title. In the trial period, you will have thirty searches with their keyword software to search.
This video class is about how to set up a “plug in” – a tool that automates the search engines’ (Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.) ease of finding your site. It uses the keywords in your title and description of your blog to signal your presence on the web.
You will further help your web presence by adding posts with helpful content – two or three per week – that will raise the value, or ranking of your site. Ranking is where the search engines put your site or posts, and the front page is where we all want to be!
By the way Kyle, who you hear talking on the video class, and who you can see in the picture is one of the owners of Wealthy Affiliate. He is very active on the site.
How To Find Images For Your Website
The image at the top of this article is from the Pixabay site. Those images are royalty free and can be used
without attribution. I use a lot of them and I (look right) put an attribution on the sidebar of my site.
You can use your own images too. Here’s a tip I learned a little late in the game – size your images before uploading them to the post!
The cool thing is, I learned that at Wealthy Affiliate, and I found out there are several ways to do it. There are a few lessons in the training that detail the best use of images.
What Is The Best Affiliate Program Commission?
That will be the topic of my next post. I don’t mean to tease, so my answer to that question is Clickbank. There’s quite a bit to say about it, it’s a great opportunity, and if you’ve decided to look into affiliate marketing to remedy not having enough money in retirement, you will want to know about Clickbank.
