This post is written for you if you are looking for ways to make money from home online. My intention to use the word “Home” don’t literally mean to be at home physically but being anywhere you want as long you have access to the internet. Home is a place where you feel comfortable and being yourself, away from the torturing and stressful working environment in any corporate offices. I posted a video about Digital Nomads residing in Bali, Indonesia on my homepage, if you have not watch it, you can watch it here. I am sure for some, this is probably new to you and it will probably inspire you to be the next Digital Nomad.

You can make a few dollars extra by participating in online survey or you can spend few weeks to build a website that can earn you passive income. But for sure what effort you put in is what you will get in return. Much effort, much prosperity.
If you are thinking of ways to build sustainable business online, I will be sharing a few below. These are just the few that I picked from many that I found easier and straight forward to understand.
- Online shop
This is the traditional way of trading online. When internet was introduced, many traders turn to advertising online to gain market in areas where marketeers could not reach before. Internet has open up doors for businesses to expand beyond geographical limits. It has help many to reduce operating cost and increase revenue from goods sold online. Many individual business owner runs an online store today. The tedious thing about doing online store is to be actively managing the inventory and arranging logistics. You need to be able to keep up with the orders coming in and you sending the goods out to the buyers.
- Affiliate Marketing
What is Affiliate Marketing? It means the Affiliate (you) provides channel to market a certain goods or service to generate visitors or customer to a website and gets rewarded for the marketing effort. In short, you help promote products or services that you don’t own and get rewarded for the traffic or any successful sale. Let me give you an example. Tod is a professional gamer. He spend most of his time playing video games and have played almost any game ever released in the market. What he also does is he writes review for all the games he played before and posts in his personal blog. Due to his quality writings, gamers tend to visit his blog to read his reviews before deciding to make any purchase online. Tod further add sales link in his blog which directly links any potential buyer to the game store. This link tracks and pays Tod his commission for all sales generated for the game store. Let’s study the scenario, Tod doesn’t own a game store but because his blog helps the store to convert sales, Tod is rewarded a commission. This is Affiliate Marketing and the good thing about it, almost anyone is possible to start an affiliate business. No huge start up capital is required. No rocket science knowledge is needed. No inventory management headache. Find out how to be successful in Affiliate Marketing, read more in Wealth Affiliate
