Work From Home Making Money with Networking and Bookmarking Sites
(by a guest writer)
Yes, you can earn money working from home with various social
networking and book marking business ideas.
The last time we released an article on home business opportunities,
it was this one:
101 Ways to make money online, in the middle of 2007. Do you know
what happened to it? Within 48 hours it attracted over 100,000 visitors,
got linked to from
hundreds of other sites/blogs, and is now the premier article on the net
about making money from home. Google lists it at #1 for terms like "101
ways to make money". Ah! you say, that's a very specific search
term with only 11,000 search results - not that difficult to rank for at
all. Try this:
#1 out of 37,800,000 for make money from home
#2 out of 13,500,000 for home business ideas (another page of
ours is at #1)
#1 out of 32,500,000 in Yahoo
and lots more. All hugely competitive terms, terms that various
search engines and sites believe we have the best information on.
Why tell you this? It's to do with credibility. Making money online
is something a million blogs talk about, something that very few
actually do, and something that even fewer do successfully. But, the
prospect of making money from home, in your pyjamas, is always
attractive. That's why opportunists try to sell you ebooks on ditching
your job and getting
rich online. Many have been written by people with no experience in
making money themselves. Besides, what works for someone else may not
necessarily work for you so it's likely a waste of money anyway.
That's why we've assembled this article. It's as big as an ebook, or
even bigger, but it's free and anybody can use it to start making
There are plenty of online resources to tell you how to profit from
Adsense, or by promoting debt consolidation or by blogging. This article
focuses on a very specific area of online profits: the social media
sites. Why? Because the social media sites are the biggest phenomenon
since the start of the internet. Add the invention of email to the
startup of a search engine called Google to the development of broadband
internet access ... and you still won't have a humanity-changing force
as big as social media.
It's huge, huge, HUGE. And it's in its infancy,
the perfect time for YOU to get stuck in. It's like being told way back
in the mid-nineties that registering business.com was a good investment
at $10 (it went on to sell for $7.5 million). Or that the start-up
search engine called Google was worth investing a couple of thousands
dollars in (today you'd be worth several hundred million). Social media
is at that stage today. Ignore it at your peril.
We recognise that people have widely varying skills. Someone who's
PPC advertising, monitoring his ads for response rates and using
sophisticated spreadsheets to calculate the ROI on various ad
campaigns/affiliate programs may be completely hopeless at building a
network of friends at social networking sites. And the expert social
networker may be
awful at developing an application for Facebook. Don't know what any of
that means? Most people don't - there are still at least a million ways
you can make money from social media sites, and we'll point you in the
Who made us experts? There's nobody who's an expert on everything
social media, it's too new. But we are enthusiasts, we are business
people and we have spent hundreds of hours researching various social
media and Web 2.0 sites. Six of us have created profiles, tried some of
the ideas, been booted off networks for making mistakes, learnt what
works and what doesn't. And we're sharing it with you. For nothing!
Seriously, folk, for absolutely nothing!
Here's the catch - we want two things from you. Social media is so
new that we, like everybody else, are still learning. If you find the
information in this article useful we trust you to pay us for it by 1)
signing up to our newsletter and 2) emailing us with your suggestions /
success stories / general feedback. No force, no arm twisting. We
need your feedback, you co-operate with us and we all learn more.
But that's only if you find this article useful. It's completely
voluntary and we trust you.
If you don't, we wish you all the best and we part as friends. But
I'm hoping that won't happen. I'm hoping this will be the stepping board
that changes your life. Do us a favour and say thanks by signing up.
You'll never kick the day job unless you do something about it
NOW. So, if you don't have the time to read this article this very
minute, do yourself a favour - bookmark the page.
All the very best to every single one of you.
