A lot of Seniors suddenly discover the unpleasant reality of no income. While you’re still earning, you may think you can live on not too much.
The reality, however, may be a bit different, and you could be scratching around looking for ways to earn some income. And by now, you’ve discovered the pleasure of not having a JOB.
What to do?
There are lots of ways to get income streams happening, even without money to invest.
Here are some ideas to start you off.
- Working on Freelance Networks
- Affiliate marketing
Many of you will go pale at the very idea, but actually it’s not that hard, as I’m going to show you.
Blogging can be easy and fun, particularly if you have something you’re really good at or interested in. Remember the film Julie and Julia? A perfect example of what can happen. But that was a rather unusual example perhaps,and most of us are not going to become instant filmstars. More likely you would either sell your own or someone else’s products or services.
It’s not very difficult to set up a good quality site, and if you can’t do it yourself, I’m just the person to do it for you. Not expensive either. Have a look here to see what I can do for you.
Freelance Networks are places where you can bid on freelance jobs or every imaginable sort. To start with, you may be offered a pitiful amount, but as a way in, it’s worth putting up with. Once you get some feedback, you’ll get better jobs and better rates of pay.
Places such as Upwork.com offer this opportunity. You probably won’t make your fortune, but you never know.
Join and list a profile, and they’ll send emails to you when jobs matching your profile come up.
Affiliate marketing is when you sell other people’s products, but without physically handling them. You provide a link to the product, and the buyer is taken to the seller’s website. If the person buys, you will be paid a commission.
There are billions of products that are available to sell in this way, including those from big trusted names like Amazon.
This is the best of all the opportunities, and I’ll talk more about it in upcoming posts.
Over time I’m going to talk in detail about these methods, and many of you will be able to simply go ahead and do them.
