With the internet in its current state of evolution, it has never been easier to make money from home and in this article, I am going to explain how you can actually do it. But first, I want to tell you a little about myself and what I do. Don’t worry, it won’t take long but I think it is important for you to know that I do actually make a full time income working from home.
It was just over a year ago that I gave up the day job. What a feeling it was to hand my notice in; I can still remember just how fantastic it was to have reached my goal of creating a passive online income. It was the culmination of eight years worth of effort. When I started, there was nothing like the great opportunities that are available today – heck, they hadn’t even started Adsense back then.
Previously, I wrote about the four most reliable methods of making money that I have found. They are all tried and tested and they all work. You just have to dedicate yourself to becoming a master of one of them. However, in this post, I want to discuss how the internet is changing and how you can leverage this phenomenon, not just to make extra money, but to create a genuine passive income stream for yourself simply … wait for it … by giving stuff away.
Yes, I know that sounds amazing and the truth is that … well … it really is! What better way is there to earn money than by helping people?
You see, the thing I managed to do was to create a good quality site that people find really useful. It is largely because my visitors like my free books that they recommend my site to other people, they link to it from their own blogs and they pass on my books to their visitors. There is probably not another site on the web that gives away so many good quality eBooks without any strings attached. Our books are not disguised advertising; they are genuinely useful to our visitors.
This approach has created something in excess of 6,ooo inbound links, it drives free traffic to the site – about 1.7 million visitors per year – and of course, it generates revenue. I really do make money from home just by helping people. Until now, the problem for anyone trying to replicate my model is simply that it takes a great deal of time to create an inventory like ours. But things are changing. Today, you can actually give our free books away and make money in the process.
Even if you do not have a website or blog, you can earn an income just by doing this. You can use Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and a myriad social sites, forums and other online meeting places to give away free stuff. What is wonderful about this approach is that you don’t have to do any selling. People will thank you for the useful free information you provide and yet, you will be making money in the process – that just shows what a terrific business model this is.
