Here are some other current search keywords and phrases:

There is a lot of interest in blogging on the Internet and there are opportunities for free lance writers in blogging.

Bloggers make money by promoting affiliate products, accepting ads on their sites, promoting their own products, etc. As long as they can bring in traffic, they can be successful financially.  Sometimes they have to hire free lance writers to give a hand.

Freelance writers find that blogging is a money-making opportunity. Some have their own blogs but they also write for other bloggers.

Blogs may be about a variety of different subjects and may be personal, political, informative, humorous or any other category desired by the blogger. The key to a successful blog is a subject which appeals to a broad audience. It is the writer’s task to make sure his or her writing is of high quality and is addressed to the readers of the blog they are hired to write for.

Blogs need to be updated regularly which provides work over a long time to blog writers. As I said, the content in blog articles must be relevant to the blog readers and of high quality. It often must solve a particular problem.

Blogging Career Opportunities

Writers blogging opportunities should utilize the same job search websites they rely on to find other writing opportunities. Many list their services on fiverr.com and other such sites.

Bloggers can post on blogging career websites message boards which focus exclusively on careers in blogging. The ProBlogger.net website is an example of such a website that puts writers in contact with blog webmasters.

The Benefits of a Career in Blogging

There are benefits to a career in blogging. Almost always writers can work at home or wherever they have access to a computer. You can work while nursing a child. (Some companies may require bloggers to perform on site.)

Another benefit to a career in blogging is control of the work schedule. I like to work early in the morning. Some prefer in the late evening. Some like to work on breaks and lunch periods.

The blogger may be required to upload posts to a blog on a regular schedule, but the actually writing of the posts can be accomplished when it is convenient for the blogger. Some blogging software packages enable the blogger to set a specific time for a specific post to be uploaded. This allows the blogger to write several posts at a time and have them publish according to a pre-determined schedule.

Find Online Jobs, Work From Home

Introduction:

Old Man in Idaho

Dr. John T. Jones

Earning money online is becoming easier day by day. There are companies from small and medium-sized business to large multinationals who wish to outsource work, making way for freelancers a golden opportunity to work with the big names from home. While there are some online jobs that turn out to be big scams, there are many that are legitimate, especially those listed on Wealthy Affiliate. Finding a well-paid online job, work from home is not that difficult when you use the platform provided by Wealthy Affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate is an online business community allowing like-minded people to interact with each other, build connections and reputation and have access to numerous resources for the success of their business and profession. Members need to figure out ways of putting your skills to work on Wealthy Affiliate and have access to laptop or a computer and a high-speed internet along with their skills. Below we discuss a number of online jobs that you can find on Wealthy Affiliate that are well-paid and can suit your work schedule.

1.Virtual Assistant

Virtual Assistant is one of the hottest jobs on the Internet. From business owners to individual clients, all need an assistant who could handle e-mail, schedule their meetings and work routine and make travel arrangements. For this you need to have previous administrative experience, excellent time management and organizational skills. For the job you can get a minimum of $10 an hour and maximum $30 an hour as a virtual assistant.

2. Online Reseller

Online reselling is another job that you can greatly profit from. Infact you can earn a lot of money selling different products online, all you need to do is reach out to more buyers to want to sell their stuff but are unable to market it themselves or find buyers. You will need to have good experience in selling various items on eBay through auctions and the business acumen to promote your reselling business.

3. Call-Center Employee

Previously, if customers had a query or wanted to register a complaint regarding a product they would call at the main office. But today with virtual call centres all incoming calls automatically get transferred to call-agent’s phone where they answer all sorts of queries of old and prospective customers. You need to have call-answering skills as well as be proficient in the language required by your employer in order to get the job.

4. Document Translator

Our world is fast becoming a global village with buyers and consumers speaking different languages. As businesses grow internationationally, they wish to communicate their messages and services in various languages. This presents a golden opportunity to bilingual people who can easily translate the company’s messages into their own native language so that the people can understand easily. Today there are many companies providing translation services professionally catering to clients globally, offering their services in various languages such as Spanish, Japanese, Korean, French, Chinese and many more.

5. Data-Entry Worker

Data entry jobs are one of the most popular jobs on the Internet which requires beginner skills. Many companies always need resources who can type their paper documents into a computer for which they cannot use their full time employees who already have their hands full with work, so they outsource the work. All you need is a good typing speed.

Finding an online job, work from home is not so difficult with Wealthy Affiliate. Good luck with job hunting!

No Experience Needed Jobs

FTC: Links to Amazon.com from pics or text that result in sales could lead to a small commission to me at no cost to you.

Introduction

There is a place in the job market for you!

There is a place in the job market for you!

Young folks and folks who have never worked a regular job often seek no experience needed jobs. For example, a lady who has been raising kids and going to PTA meetings may not have the skills and knowledge to work in one of the job opportunities she sees in the newspaper want ads. They are willing to learn but don’t recognize that they actually do have some skills and knowledge which is directly applicable to the work place.

Another example is farm workers who don’t see how they would fit in to a job in industry. The fact of the matter is that industry prefers farm workers. Why? Because they know how to do things. In Colorado, we always gave preference to farm workers.

Military veterans may not see how their military training fits into the work force, but veterans are given preference in industry and government and military experience can fit in better than they think.

Let Others Decide Your Potential in the Job Market

If you have been out of the job market for a long time, then you probably don’t know exactly what that market is all about. Therefore you need to let people who are in the market tell you what they need. Then they can match your skills with their requirements.

You should apply for a job you know that you are not capable of doing. The reason is that when an employer looks at you, he may think of other areas of his company where you might fit in. Therefore seeking one job may lead to another.

You should also consider asking your friends about possible employment. They can often find you a job. I once found a job for a fellow engineer and in turn he found me a job. It turned out that I ended up working for his father in Pennsylvania.

Don’t  worry too much about the qualifications you don’t have.

Consider Working for Your Self

You can work the globe from your home.

You can work the globe from your home.

In this day and age, many folks get tired of their job or they become dissatisfied with their working conditions including their pay. Therefore they decide to go into business for themselves. Since you are starting out in business you may as well make that business your own business.

To start your own business, you will need some knowledge.

A good way to get that knowledge is to talk to people who are in business. A good place to start is at your local chamber of commerce. They will guide you to sources that will help you get established in business.

You also can go to your local community college or university and ask for help. They often have free courses of study to teach you how to start a business.

Also you can go to SBA.gov and prepare a business plan for your business. This will be your guide to success. It is very unwise to try to start a new business without a business plan.

Consider Working from Home

There are a number of advantages to working at home:

1 You don’t pay for transportation to work.

2. You don’t have to buy clothing for work.

3. You don’t have to rent or buy office space.

4. You can use local equipment that you own such as computers and machinery and such.

5. You will have tax advantages.

6. You don’t need to have someone watch the kids or pets.

7. You have that feeling of freedom that comes from working alone. 

8. You have the potential of earning much income.

Consider Internet Marketing

Work from home with the kids there.

Work from home with the kids there.

There are two ways to approach the Internet:

1. Make and sell your own products.

I have always been more successful in selling my own products. I was not necessarily the manufacturer of the product but I was the distributor. In other words I had control of the product.

2. Promote other people’s products.

This is usually affiliate marketing where you know enough about a product to promote it. Your job is to send people to the vendor’s site. You do not sell. That is the vendor’s job. The priority site for training affiliate marketing is Wealthy Affiliate University. I have been a member WA for eight (8) years.

Decide What You Must Do to Make Your Self Effective in a New Environment

No matter what you decide you will have to to have a plan of action to achieve your goals. This will probably include some special training. If you decide to purchase a franchise, then you will be fully trained as part of the deal. the best source for franchise opportunities is Inc Magazine.

Implement Your New Plan of Action

Once you have set up your business plan, then write down the tasks that must be completed. It is your goal to complete each of the task generated from your business plan in a thorough manner.

You should end up in business.

Your own business!

Some Examples of How to Implement Your Plan!

Example 1.

Tyler decided to make key holders, a board with hooks to hang keys on. He made the first board in my kitchen. He opened an ETSY store at no charge and listed his boards. He now is selling these key boards regularly. He also has a web site where he sells Chinese goods but charges only for postage and handling because the items are so inexpensive. Tyler is my wife’s caregiver’s son.

Example 2

My two granddaughters were taught to knit when about four (4) years old by my wife. They now sell knitted goods, first on Etsy and then on their own site. Their husbands are in college but my granddaughters are the breadwinners, having a dozen or so employees.

Example 3

Some friends of mine in the Midwest had a business from their home selling doll parts and accessories. They put the business on the Internet with their own site and doubled their sales overnight. The business continues to grow. I have other granddaughters who promote their professions on the Internet.

Example 4

My son used to sell flutes. We set him up a website and he told his customers by email that he had a new website where they could buy flutes. He “tied up” the flute makers world-wide (Irish flutes) and his business grew until he didn’t have time to run it–so he sold the business. He is a veterinarian who now has a new business on the Internet: http://www.homegrownherbalist.net.

Example 5

A man I know of had juggling as a hobby. He set up a website selling juggling equipment and does very well financially.

Example 6

A gentleman, now deceased, I knew, sold car parts which he put on the Internet. He wrote and sold a best selling book on buying cars. He then started a very large business teaching folks how to make money on the Internet.

Example 7

Four men I know personally each became Affiliate Markers while in college. One hired college English majors to write for his many websites. Now he teaches others to make money on the Internet.

Ryan Moran earned his way through college as an entreprenoire He is still at it, a good friend.

Ryan Moran earned his way through college as an entrepreneur He is still at it, a good friend.

Kyle and Carson who own Wealthy Affiliate worked their ways through college as affiliate marketers.

Also did a friend named Ryan Moran who did the same thing, earning $500,00.00 while in college. (I have tried to get him to climb Mt. Moran in the Tetons but so far I have failed). He has gone on to bigger and better things like importing products and having Amazon sell them for him from their site.

Well, there are “no experience needed” jobs. Claim Yours!

Just Do It!

Introduction

My young friend made $10,000.00 last month for the first time. He did it on the Internet. Learn how you can get started.

Made $10,000 In One Month

A friend of mine just made $10,000 in a single month. He did it by focusing on the Christmas season market. He recommended that we watch the following video.

You might have to turn down the sound volume on this video:

Two of My Granddaughters Earned More How to Knit Basic StitchesThan That

They sell strictly on the Internet. But they supply their own products. They are not affiliate marketers . There have about a dozen people working for the them. I helped my granddaughters sets set up their personal business sometime back. My wife taught then to knit when they were about 4 years old and they turned that into a business which is supporting their families while their husbands are in college.

My Son Is on His Second Online Business

He is a veterinarian but has a second business based online and offline. For a long time, he sold musical instruments online. He doesn’t have time to do that now so he sold that business. He sells herbs and such.

It Takes Time to Start an Online Business

A. good way to start an online business is to take an existing business and put it online. I have some good friends who had a business selling doll parts from their home. They put it online and their sales doubled immediately and increase thereafter dramatically. My son’s music business went the same way. He had an email list. We put up his website and he sent an email to his friends telling them about the site. That was it! Bingo!

You can start a business by going to Etsy.com and opening a store. That works for many people. I even have a store. It’s called MyStuffy.

A common way to start is by promoting other peoples products as taught at Wealthy Affiliate University where I have been a member for eight (8) years.

You Need to Learn the Ropes

Following lets you compare WA’s free and premium memberships. I suggest you start free and then convert to premium. By the annual premium membership to save half the cost (less than a college course that teaches you little about the real world of marketing on the Internet. Just Do It!

How To Promote Website

Home Based Business Secret-Cash.com

Home Based Business
Secret-Cash.com

Right now is a good time to promote from your website Valentines’ Day. Easter will soon follow, so get in there and start pitching.

Let’s talk about scheduling our work, posting blogs and pages, and using keywords and ads and PPC in terms of getting the word out.

The most important thing is to make sure your content is what folks are looking for. If you don’t have the right content for your niche, then why bother to advertise? Folks will still come to your site but they will leave in two seconds if they don’t find what they are after and you have wasted your money.

Do You Work a  Schedule?

Do You Work a Schedule?

Break Out Your Calendar

If you are an Internet marketer, you should be working from a schedule. Right now you should be promoting for Valentine’s Day and Easter. They will be followed by Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Although the holiday season is the most profitable time of the year, you should be thinking about what you can do every day of the year to bring in some income.

Holiday Promotions

To bring people to your website for holidays, you will be wanting to write the very best content that you can. This content must be related to what folks are looking for. If someone is looking for an engagement ring, he is not going to click on your site for carrots (probably not even for carats or karats).

Paid Ads

Paid ads are very rapid for bringing in traffic. The traffic is also very targeted. If you are careful with your keywords, you can bring buyers to your site instead of tire kickers.

The Keyword Tool

Use your keyword tool and check your keywords at Amazon and eBay and other online stores. Folks who go to the sites are looking to buy something and they use certain keywords. I always use the JAAXY Keyword Tool because it is designed for affiliate marketers and give accurate information.

Ads on Twitter and Facebook and such work, also Linkedin, can work for you if they have a good headline and keyword test that leads to your site.

PPC

Be careful with PPC. Stay away from Google Adwords to start, go to Bing Yahoo. Set an amount you will spend per day or watch your program keyword spending very carefully or it can put you in the poor house. You need training before you start PPC.

Social Marketing

Post your articles and blog posts to the social media sites. You, know: Twitter, Facebook. Linkedin, etc.

FTC

If you have commission affiliate links on your site, have a disclaimer as required by the FTC saying that you might get a commission. This post has affiliate links and if you click on them and then purchase something, I will get small commissions which I will greatly appreciate.

Opportunity of the Week: Let’s Play 20 Questions

Logo

Logo

banner WA Free Membership

Do you remember the game 20 Questions?

If you are as old as me (83 in January), you may remember the TV show.

httpv://youtu.be/gvGfOTOqRG4

When I was a kid we played 20 Questions. One kid would think up a person place or thing and we had to guess what it was by asking questions. The first question might be, “Is it animal?” That would eliminate vegetable and mineral.

The next question might be, “Is it smaller than a bread box?” That would help nail down the size. Pretty soon, 9 times out of 10, you would have the Answer. For example, if the answer was King Tut, he would be animal, larger than a breadbox, and dead (not living), A real person (not Micky Mouse). Not now living.

The SBA gives these 20 questions to ask yourself before you start a business:

So you’ve got what it takes to be an entrepreneur? Now, ask yourself these 20 questions to make sure you’re thinking about the right key business decisions:

  1. Why am I starting a business?
  2. What kind of business do I want?
  3. Who is my ideal customer?
  4. What products or services will my business provide?
  5. Am I prepared to spend the time and money needed to get my business started?
  6. What differentiates my business idea and the products or services I will provide from others in the market?
  7. Where will my business be located?
  8. How many employees will I need?
  9. What types of suppliers do I need?
  10. How much money do I need to get started?
  11. Will I need to get a loan?
  12. How soon will it take before my products or services are available?
  13. How long do I have until I start making a profit?
  14. Who is my competition?
  15. How will I price my product compared to my competition?
  16. How will I set up the legal structure of my business?
  17. What taxes do I need to pay?
  18. What kind of insurance do I need?
  19. How will I manage my business?
  20. How will I advertise my business?

Of course, these questions need to be answered in your Business Plan. Go to SBA and make your business plan now. Now is the time to start, right?

What Kind of Niche Is That Anyway?


We are told to find a passion and that is your niche. While that is important so that you don’t get bored with life and stop blogging, it is not everything. The reason that I say that is that most of us get on the net in the first place to make a few bucks. There are niches and profitable niches. Is your a profitable niche? All you have to do to determine that is to count your shekels.

If we are in it for the money, we should realize that we want a small part of a larger market with folks with money in their pockets hang out, eager to buy. Once we have found this group of hungry buyers, we need to supply something they don’t have but want or need. That means we must be part of the market too so that we can communicate with those people.

You can make money with an information site or a niche site by letting Google or others use space to grab your customers so they can take them away from your site. I use to make a few bucks with Adwords but I took the ads off my sites. Google has always been a pain to deal with. I’m sure they owe me money if I could get in there to find out. Anyway, I don’t want folks taking my customers away. But you can make money doing that if you want to.

I think that it is a good idea to focus on your potential customers.

When you post on your site, think about keywords in your title and content. I often don’t but in general, you should. A great keyword that you can try for free for 30 searches is JAAXY.

What Is Bubblews?

writer 3

Update Aug. 30, 2014: The site is up and running and easy to use. However, I have not been paid and I’m not the only one complaining. If they don’t pay me soon, I will stop writing for them. I have better things to do. If I get paid, I’ll let you know. John

Bubblews.com is a new service who pays those who submit small 400 character news blips. Since the post are only 400 characters long, it is very easy to write two each day. From our experience, that will pay you about $50 a month. Since the blibs can be so short, it is much less tedious than article writing.

The website is under modification to speed things up. That modification should be completed in July. Meanwhile there might be just a little bit of hassle getting your posts up. I put up with that but the hassle will soon be over.

You can write on whatever you want. I usually get up in the morning and read the newspaper and write a couple of blips from local or national news. There are many topics to choose from on the side, called categories, and I have added to quite a few of them.

Sometimes I just write something that is funny, at least to me. Recently I’ve been writing about the World Cup in Brazil. The US just won their game today over Portugal 2/1 and that is news.

Some of us use our money to pay for prescriptions sites. I know that a few members of Wealthy Affiliate use this method.

Writing for bubblews is great training for new writers. It also puts a few bucks in their pockets.

Join the Wealthy Affiliate Community Right Now!

WA1

Old Man in Idaho

Dr. John T. Jones

I’m in my seventh year at Wealthy Affiliate University. I have been a member trainer there for years and I have enjoyed it thoroughly. I am also an Ambassador for Wealthy Affiliate.

The training at Wealthy Affiliate is comprehensive. Some members present post and tutorials to help other members progress.

banner WA Free MembershipThere are no guru tactics, no up selling, in fact it is free to lifetime start up members.

Free lifetime members get two free websites on SiteRubix.com, which are hosted at no charge.

a0baf1875d1482930743b002dd182dd5_thumbWordPress is free to build websites quickly if you think that is important. I don’t. I think what is important is to build websites properly which your training will make possible from the start.

The premium membership at Wealthy Affiliate is $47 per month if you pay monthly. That is far less than any community college course in my area of Idaho.

I have never paid monthly, which cuts my cost dramatically. Full members have access to more training and to all the tutorials.

Also premium membership allows you to communicate directly with the owners, Kyle and Carson, and all other members.

You can get an answer to a question in any time just by typing the question in the box at the top of any page at Wealthy Affiliate or by going to Live Chat to ask a member there. But having access to the owners and Premium members by personal message can be very valuable.

business man 2Wealthy Affiliate will have you in business in a very short time. However it will take time to build that business to the point where you are making significant income.

Internet marketing is a business and you have to run it like a business, incorporating modern business techniques to market your products.

You may already have a marketing advantage at WAU if you are a Facebook or Twitter fan or such.

Affiliate marketing is the process of promoting other peoples products. There are many thousands of these products available to Internet marketers and sites like Clickbank and Commission Junction make it easy to get links that you can suggest to the readers on your webpages.

The key to effective affiliate marketing is to give people who are searching the web what they are looking for. That is you must have information that is relevant to the keyword searches that are being made on the Internet.

It is not your job to sell other peoples products. It is your job to give people the information in the area that they are interested. Then you can warm them up to clicking on one of your affiliate links.

It is the job of the vendor to sell his product. The vendors use professional copywriters group are probably much more capable of selling a particular product then you. As I said, your job is to get potential buyers to visit the vendor’s site.

So this is a request that you join me in the Wealthy Affiliate community. You’ll be welcomed to the community by me and by either Kyle or Carson or both and you will be welcomed by many members.

Wealthy Affiliate is not unlike other universities other than that the tuition is a lot lower. There you will have all the up-to-date information you need to know to become successful in Internet marketing. There you will be able to associate with like-minded people who are Internet marketers.

So why not join as a free member right now? But if you are really committed to becoming successful over the long period of time, then join WAU as a premium member. I suggest that you pay annually to save money.

Once you are a premium member you will have free hosting of all your websites. This function alone has more than paid my dues over the years.

You’ll also become an affiliate of Wealthy Affiliate and will be able to earn money by promoting their products.

ae9dc0b22d851b978c3c33dd8f7ef383_thumbThere are only two products to promote. One is memberships at Wealthy Affiliate and the other is a membership in JAAXY, the Wealthy Affiliate owned affiliate marketing keyword tool.

I love JAAXY so I promote it too.

Yep, it cost me nothing to be a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate. Also, you can be guaranteed this: Your dues will never increase.

So, I’ll see you there! Right?
