How to Work From Home Without an Investment

There are many different reasons someone may want to work from home. It could be to bring in some extra cash around a full-time job, or many they want to be home around their kids, or maybe they are tired of being bossed around all day. Regardless of the reason, working from home can have man advantages.

For me, I love the excitement of waking up and seeing that I made money overnight while I was sleeping. But I also like the fact that I get to work my own hours boss free.

There are many opportunities out there for people to work from home. You could get a job where you are home-based, but you still have a boss to answer to. But this is still nice since she/he will not be breathing down your neck.

On the other hand, you could do a home-based business. Many businesses don’t take a lot of investment like many multi-level opportunities. However, I personally don’t recommend them for several reasons. The biggest reason is that you often need to buy into their products and you need to answer to an upline and followup with a downline. As someone who has done MLM in the past, I can tell you that it is not fun when your earning potential is dependant on the effort of others.

So if you want the enjoyment of working from home, without having to deal with a boss or invest in products or buy into a program then you really should consider affiliate marketing.

Affiliate Marketing makes it possible to work from home without having to make an investment. This is exciting if you are dirt broke.

Affiliate Marketing Explained:

Affiliate marketing is when you refer a person to a company or product. When they buy, you get a commission. The easiest way to do this is with a website or blog. Simply write about a product or share your experience and refer people through your link. When they click and buy, you make money. For example, I have a website that focuses on nutrition and I have written reviews on some of my favorite books. Because I am an Amazon Affiliate, I refer people to their website to buy the book. When they buy the book, I make a small commission. The really cool thing is if they buy other things while at Amazon, I make a commission on those purchases as well.

Now you may be thinking that you don’t know anything about creating a website. Or perhaps you are not the best writer. And maybe you’re are scratching your head thinking that affiliate marketing could be difficult. I can tell you I’ts not. Really it is not hard.

I have several websites myself that bring me in cash flow daily. And I am like the most unlikely person to own a website. You see I was lucky to have the help from the folks at Wealthy Affiliate. They offer the best training for affiliate marketing. And what’s great is they break up the process of learning affiliate marketing into easy to follow steps. You will learn all the affiliate marketing secrets that are not taught anywhere else.

The great thing about Wealthy Affiliate besides the wonderful training is that you get to interact with experts and other newbies. You never feel like you are alone, even though you are running your own business.

Why I love Affiliate Marketing:

  • Unlike other home businesses, there is no need to invest in products.
  • You get to decide the hours you want to work.
  • You get to follow your passion. So if you have a hobby or special skill that you want to share with the world, you can do and make some money on the side.
  • You can work from home or anywhere you want.
  • You don’t have to sell products. You just simply point people to the products you recommend.
  • Since there are no products to deal with, there also are no returns or customers to deal with.
  • The most important reason is the freedom to do your own thing.

    Great post! Affiliate marketing is a great business opportunity for anyone and like you said, it is nice to wake up to commissions. I would prefer this any day than having to build something like an MLM business model and make ongoing phone calls daily to try to recruit people. And to buy expensive products or go to events that cost the earth.

      There is nothing like working from the comfort of your home for sure.  I especially appreciate it when it is cold and yucky outside.

    For me the only time I can work from home is at night and weekend after my full-time work or during my off day. I want to earn more income as my full-time job pay is very miserable, not able to support my family of 5 as I am the only breadwinner.

    I did MLM before as well and I do not like the idea of inviting people to my home or go to MRT station to find potential downlines. In fact, I have spend few thousand dollar on MLM business and get nothing out of it.

    Currently I am a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate and I have various websites created to earn income with different niche. I strongly encourage those who wish to have control over their income to establish online business. This is not a get rich quick kind of business therefore you need to put times and effort to create your brand online. I believe in times to come, I will succeed in making enough money online and quit my current job.

    Thank you for sharing this post and wish more people can join Wealthy Affiliate.
