How can I make money from home with work at home jobs?
I don’t really understand how this works….
I mean, do I need a lot of space with a work at home job?
Is it much work?
Does it cost me much to get started?
It sounds really good to be able to have a work at home job, and I need the extra money it would bring in.
But how much can one earn with a working at home job?
I could even call me a “Work at home mom” too. Sounds a lot better than a mom without any work.
Will try what’s suggested at your other site.
The “Work At Home Mom”
The above is from an email I received one day – and I do receive some emails like this.
From people struggling to get ends to meet. No job, no income, little food and about to get desperate.
But fortunately there are ways to get around that – like with work at home jobs. And that’s what Tina is doing now.
Sent her a reply to the email with some easy to follow first step first instructions on how to get set up and started with her own work at home job.
That’s three weeks ago – and guess what? – Tina has been able to get her first earnings working from home – doing her work at home job.
Or should I say… “mom working at home job”
In a way she has “cracked the code” that way to many are struggling with at first.
She just followed the easy laid out instructions I gave her. This is all about mindset – its about having a plan – and following that plan.
I see way to many loose focus, trying to cut corners or not doing anything at all.
I like to say that “failing to plan” – is “planning to fail” – in a work at home job situation you need to have a plan. Period!
So in Tina’s case – I made her a simple blueprint with step by step instructions on what to do – and how to do it.
The work at home job blueprint I made for Tina included the following:
- A step by step worksheet she could follow – and mark as done for each step
- Clear instructions for each step – with links to resources if needed.
- Detailed descriptions for each of steps to make her understand why she was doing it – and the importance of it.
Tina’s work at home job worksheet locked something like this:
Tina’s work at home job to do list:
- Go to Gmail and set up a new email account for your work at home job. Use this email for the rest of the steps.
- Go to word press.com and set up your work at home job blog – use a title like we agreed earlier.
- Go to blogger and do the same – use same title as with word press.
- Go to Google+ and set up an account the same way
- Go to face book and set up a NEW profile for your work at home job – profile name like we picked earlyer.
- Go to Twitter and set up your work from home job account.
- Go to LinkedIn and set up a profile.
- Follow the links in my last email and set up the two accounts listed.
- Go over each step of this list and check that it’s done – and that you have filled in all account details in the form I gave you.
- WELL DONE – You can take the rest of the day of – you have earned it! At this point have have set the important fundation of your work at home job!
OK, Tina was not the kind of girl that wanted to rest when she first started to move. Four hours after she received the blueprint from me – she was on Skype asking what to do next. This show exactly how “the right way” to start with your new work at home job.
Many others have something to learn from this – I would say around 85% of those trying to make money doing a work at home job have something to learn from Tina here. Tina was already way ahead of most others – already 4 hours into her new work at home job.
Work at home jobs have a failure rate at around 85% – sad fact. Solution? Have a clear work at home job plan – and follow that plan.
So in this case I had to email Tina some instructions on how to configure her new WP blog. Step by step this one to. And then some material to use for ideas to her first postings on that blog.
This included how to write five articles to use for her first postings. She also had e new – and rather large ping list to ad to that blog.
Normally this would accupy a new student for about a week….. Next morning she was on Skype again asking “What’s next?”
I had a look at the blog – and everything looked… kinda nice – clean layout and five well formatted articles – all around 600 words with a good readability. Job well done Tina! So I gave her some instructions for the Blogger blog and left her to it.
Later the same evening she was on Skype again asking “What’s next?”
I just had to tell to take a rest, but she insisted – so I had to get her going with her Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn profile as well.
To be sure that she could work all night if she wanted to – I just added a setup for YouTube as well.
Fast forwarding a bit, I was impressed on how Tina had taken on this – to her all new work at home job concept.
After a small week, she had finished her task list – and a great deal more. Her work at home job foundation was all set up – and working!
Her site was indexed in Google, and both her blogs had some viewers and some comments. Her FaceBook profile had 27 likes and Tina was happy as a child.
Her main question now was when she could strt making money from it. She did not like it when I told her that we needed to wait until her sites had “matured” a bit. This is the hardest part for many to understand – that it is NOT wise to start filling the sites with affiliate links at once.
6 to 8 weeks is needed if you want your site to rank well – and stay ranked well. And Tina understood this eventually – she wanted to build her work at home job for the long term. In the following weeks she wrote more articles, posted some on the site and submittedsome to article directories elswere. She did postings on her FaceBook profile and on the two Facebook pages she had set up. Some postings to Google + and Twitter was also done.
The way I had made her set this up – it was all tied together so that posting done one one of them – also showed up like magic on the others. So far this whole setup had not cost her a cent – all where free resourses and she had already traffic to her sites and profiles.
After her “8 week maturing time” we started to monetize everything. Just a simple add for a free report at first – and some sales pitch in this free report. Doing it this way we avoided ANY affiliate link on her sites.
One morning she was at Skape all in flames – she had made her first sales from her work at home job. I think it was $32 from three sales – but to her it was like heaven. Later the same week her earnings had past $200 – all paid directly into her PayPal account.
Asking her if she wanted to expand her work at home job with her own domain and hosting – investing half of the earning was out of the question. She wanted to put everything – $200 into her new home based business – her work at home job that she had started to really love.
So we did some keyword research and picked a domain and a hosting account. I gave her a WP clone that I used as a basis for new sites – with the needed plug ins, bells and whistles needed. She was on it again – setting up her new site, writing articles and everything included. Her first two blogs continued to make sales, a couple of sales daily and around $113 weekly income.
Its now been around four months since her first email to me – and she has several sites up bringing in over $1000 monthly. The cost to run everything is less then $40 monthly – so shes already making some good money from her work at home job.
But the most important part is NOT the money – but the knowledge and experience in setting up and running a work at home job – but actually working from home. She understood from day one that there is no such ting as a free ride – one actually has to work in order to have some success with a work at home job.
So I hope Tina’s storry can inspire others to treat there work at home job as a real business and actually start working from home in order to make some money from home.
Making money from home with a work at home job can be both fun easy and rewarding as long as one do the work needed.
Good luck with your work at home jobs
