Make money without stress

Counting Savings

The word money can bring stress in a number of ways. Having debts to pay off, not being able to help pay for your child’s upbringing, on a tight budget or maybe you are struggling to help out your parents and siblings.

As sad as it is, money makes the world go around. But there is something we could do about it. I know what you’re thinking… Is that even possible?

My solution was to use the internet. Billions of people are surfing the web for a number of things, so it is obvious that this is the place where you would get the attention.

But how could you use the internet to make money and become financially comfortable?

Here are 3 tips that will help you make a kick start in your online venture:

1. Look into marketing online :  You don’t necessarily have to have your own product and your own company. You could receive commission from other business’s by selling their products. This is a great way of making extra money.

With marketing the amount of money you make is limitless so you may even be able to leave your current job when your consistently making sales. You may still be questioning marketing in terms of not having money to invest in your ads.

There are free and low cost strategies that you could use to advertise. These strategies are:

  • Article Marketing: You can grab people’s attention through your blogs.
  • Video Marketing: If your not much of a writer, you could consider making videos to target your audience.
  • Social Media Marketing: Social media is a great place to grab attention because these sites are really popular and it may be a lot easier to find the right audience. 

2. Research Freelancing: Being a freelancer is a fast and affordable way of earning money from home. This is a great way to make money without having to deal with stress.

Benefits of Freelancing:

  • You could do this around your normal job to generate income to help pay off debts and also save for a rainy day.
  • You have more independence so you are technically your own boss.
  • You can be flexible and work whenever you want.
  • If you have got the skill you could start right away without any hassle.

3. Look into starting your own online business: You don’t have to have your own website… you could sell your products through companies such as ebay or Amazon.

This is a great way to work from home if you have responsibilities or to make extra money if your busy at work.

This is not as complicated as other businesses where you need to own a shop or deal with customer service. To a certain extent you may have to deal with customers but that will be as simple as answering their questions and viewing their comments on your product.

You won’t have to deal with shipping the products, you would just need to focus on making your sales.

Benefits of starting an online business:

  • Cost savings: you wouldn’t need to splash out compared to other businesses.
  • Global access : You will be able to sell from anywhere around the world. Businesses that are run on the high street won’t have that opportunity.
  • Fast delivery of products: Selling through trustworthy companies such as ebay and amazon, you won’t have to worry about your products when being delivered to your customers.
  • Flexible: Not only will you be able to work around your responsibilities, you will also be able to work from anywhere around the world. If you wish to go on holiday you wouldn’t have to worry about asking for some time off work.

Using the internet is a very effective way to make extra money. Take these tips on board if you decide to do so. You may just be seeing yourself becoming stress free!

Why Am I Always Tired?

Tired of life?  Not looking forward to waking up? Burnt out? Or perhaps you are just tired of your routine.

Yes life can be difficult when you can’t get what you want, I mean I should know; I went through my work life mostly doing night shifts.

It was hard to plan my day. I didn’t even have a routine apart from going to work every night. My responsibilities took up my sleeping time.

How can this affect your life?

Well I am sure some of you can relate. Doing night shifts means that you are doing the opposite of what people tend to do. The morning is where your day comes to an end but for most it is the start.

This affected me quite a lot. Using my days off to sleep, by the time you are up and thinking of going out everyone is sleeping.

Being at work while everyone is enjoying their night is a painful experience.

What impact does work have on our lives?

Being frustrated Mentally : As well as not being able to socialise, having  responsibilities at home can result in lack of sleep.

Being burnt out and tired is frustrating because when you finally have some time to do what you want you can’t.

You can’t enjoy your free time:  Hobbies and having the freedom to pursue them feels non existent. Is that what it takes in order to make some money to live off of?

Being affected physically and mentally can also have an impact on you not being able to enjoy your free time.

How do I act upon this?

Taking action
Taking action

Being a night owl and being awake at stupid o’clock I knew I needed a change.

The actions I took to help with my situation:

Took advantage of my spare time: Being awake late in the night on my days off allowed me to have some quiet time.

I would use that time to do some research and find out ways to make money. Having the freedom of choice in life is an amazing feeling. This is why being self employed is the best option.

Plan my day: You’d be surprised but a lot of people  that have responsibilities don’t plan on their day. If you just wing it and take it as it comes the stress will build because the number of things to do will build.

 Enjoy the little things : I found that after getting a gym membership at a local 24/7 gym I was able to take my frustration out by pumping weights and running on the treadmill.

I would walk out of the gym different as to when I walked in. You will also notice as to how healthy you feel and it also gives you a lot more energy to go about your day which is something to keep in mind for those who feel burnt out.

But that’s just me, If your not into fitness then make the most of your time by following your hobbies.

Remember you don’t just have to be physically fit for energy, so why not take the time to enjoy the little things to help build a positive mindset.

I know many feel like this is just how life is and we just have to accept the way things are going.

This isn’t true, why not do something about it? If there are so many opportunities out there to become free from work then why not take action?

Everyone deserves to live their life to the fullest. Having a Job until retirement is the old school approach. Now we have the opportunity to make our dreams become reality.

My advice is to take action. I know stress can get the better of us and that this is easier said than done.

But I promise that you will feel a lot better and a lot more positive about the situation once you take action.

I am confident that it will have the same positive impact on your lifestyle as it has with mine.

Speak to you soon guys… Peace! 🙂

 

What business can I do from home?

business at home

To make money from home is possible in a number of ways. However some of these strategies aren’t as effective and aren’t as promising as others. We all know that working from home means that you can’t afford to waste time and have a slow income. But not to worry because there is a solution. There are two great ways to do business when working from home. The first one and probably most effective is affiliate marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is quite simply earning commission by promoting other company’s products. Find a product you like, promote it and earn for each sale you make. This is performance based marketing; what I mean by that is that in order to make more money you have to make more sales.  I know that may make you sound less confident about it but I can assure you that you won’t have to worry about that if you play it smart. There are certain methods to become successful when it comes to making a sale.

Simple steps to focus on when marketing

Target Audience: When promoting a product your more likely to make a sale when targeting the right audience. You have to ask yourself questions for example; I am promoting a video game. Where would I advertise this product? Where is my audience going to be?  perhaps you may find these answers through social media or Youtube.  That may be a great place to start.

Promoting products you are passionate about: Think of yourself when  your about to promote the product, this would make it a lot easier when planning on placing an ad because you will automatically know where your audience will be.

Set yourself a limit when investing: This may be the most important tip. If you are making sales but spending more money on your ads then you will not be making a profit. Make sure you have a plan, work out on how much money you would want to invest a month and stick to it . It is quite easy to get a little too excited and splash out money on your ads.

How can I benefit from affiliate marketing?

Passive income: “Regular” jobs require you to go to work to make money, with affiliate marketing you can make money while your sleeping.

Pay less: Most businesses usually have start up fees, with affiliate marketing you can start without any hassle.

Performance based: Your income is based on your performance . You may work over time on your salary paid jobs and still earn the same amount each month. With affiliate marketing the amount you earn depends on how effective your ad is. You may work an hour or two a day and earn an incredible amount of money.

Overall this is a great business to get into if you were to make money from home. You wouldn’t have to deal with customers or shipping the product, just simply focusing on making that sale. Remember play it smart and you might just be seeing yourself becoming financially free.

The second business idea that is really effective to do from home is working with Amazon FBA.

What is Amazon FBA?

The Amazon FBA program is a little different from the affiliate business models. With Amazon FBA you need to create your own products or at least purchase them from manufacturers or wholesalers. You will need to make sure you read over all of their terms and services carefully to avoid any problems. Fulfilment by Amazon is there to help grow your business. Your products are picked, packed and shipped to the Amazon warehouse.

Why is Amazon FBA great to get into?

Free from customers: The most difficult thing about selling your own products is dealing with customer service. Some of you that may be reading this know what it feels like to deal with customers face to face and know how difficult and annoying they can be. But lucky for you Amazon will deal with the customer service.

Low cost: Amazon FBA also offer discounted shipping rates. Your customers will also benefit because many Amazon orders have free shipping and the prime members can get two days shipping for free. This will be great for you in terms of increasing your sales.

Quick delivery: There are hundreds of fulfilment centres all over the world. This makes it possible for customers to receive their order within a few days no matter where they are around the globe.

Things to focus on to be successful with Amazon FBA?

Your niche: Choose your niches carefully. Research potential niches to help you decide on what products you want to sell.

Marketing: Use social media, forums and email to market. You should also get reviews from your previous customers to help with your business.

Offers: You should offer sales but not too often, this is a great way to out do your competitors. You should also be ready to offer deals around holidays. You are 5 times more likely to get noticed during the holiday period.

How effective is Amazon FBA?

Due to the reputation of a successful business like Amazon, customers are more likely to buy your products. They have a strong level of trust so if something goes wrong the customers are confident that Amazon will deal with it.  That is a big plus for you and your business because your products will be trusted and you will have customers that will be interested in buying.

In conclusion Amazon FBA and Affiliate marketing are both great ways of becoming financially free and you can work from the comfort of your own home.
