    3 ways to work-at-home in 2014


    The internet offers various opportunities for people to make money without investing anything. You just need to direct your skills and time towards the right place and make yourself some good cash. You can make money by working at home as long as you have an internet connected computer. Apart from the obvious benefits of working from the convenience of your house and being your own boss, you don't incur any travel expenses or tax fees. Here are some ways you can use to make money.




    Blogging is simply creating and running internet blogs. It is easy to create a personal or a business blog. You just need to go to blogger.com and build the blog profile that you want. For a blog to attract many people, it needs to focus on things that people like reading about. Search engines easily approve blogs content since they are frequently updated and hence they don’t need much optimization. People like reading specialized blogs such as those dealing with business, social issues, sports, health and fashion. Just choose an appropriate niche and build quality content for your blog. Once you start getting traffic on your blog site, you can register with the Google Ad-sense which normally attaches adverts that are related to your topics on your blog. You will be paid whenever someone clicks on those adverts or buys something through a link on your blog. Online businesses will also pay you if they want to use your blog as an advertising spot. You can create more professional blogs using word press and registering an appropriate domain name.


    Freelance writing


    If you like writing, then you can earn a lot of money on the internet by exercising your skills. There are several online writing sites that you can sign up with and make money. You can choose to write essays, articles, academic work, website content or research work depending on your specialization. Different sites offer different writing jobs at different payment rates. If you are a beginner, you can start by registering with the sites that have no restrictions like iwriter.com. You don’t necessarily need any qualifications as long as you can produce quality articles.


    Social media marketing


    People who like marketing can earn a lot of money by doing online marketing jobs while working at home. You just need to register with the popular internet businesses such as eBay.com and amazon.com and become a marketer for their products. Internet marketing is nowadays very easy with the rise of social media platforms. Once you register with any business, they give you several links for different products which you can attach on social media sites to market those products. You are paid a certain commission whenever someone purchases through those links.
