All frills aside…who hasn’t thought about how to earn money at home and online?  Wouldn’t it be great, to stay home and work?

Baby Boomers think the same and this blog, of course is dedicated to you.  Let’s talk about what you may do to accomplish this dream.

1. Find Your Vehicle

Watch this great video about how to create a website in under 30 seconds, you’ll be amazed.


So what does creating a website mean to you?

This means that you need a “home-store”, likely a website which could become a combination of the two…a website store.  There are many different opportunities out there and ways that you can market and advertise your product.  You will need to be diligent and do your homework…after all, you want to be working from home so take the time to do this important step.

A free vehicle is the best if you are going to be working online.  There are some web hosts that offer you free and some that will require a monthly or annual fee.  Check into all of them and make sure that there are no added costs after the first year.  Some examples of websites that require annual payments are:

http://www.hostgator.com/ – $47.52/year

http://www.namecheap.com/ – $3.99/year

http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/ – FREE indefinitely for 2 websites


2. Choose Your Product – you will have to decide what you are going to sell.  Whether it’s something you craft or a service you offer (that can be done online), or you want to get into an affiliate program (signing up under a company such as Amazon and making commissions from books sold that are advertised on your site), or publishing your own e-Book.  These are all viable options and you will need to look at each one.

I strongly recommend that you associate yourself with a product, whatever that may be, that represents your own personal values and that you are proud to show your families and friends.  I like the old adage: “Don’t be afraid of the town gossip talking about your business”.  I think it’s a great way of thinking of and promoting your business.  Let the town gossip spread good news about what you are selling…it’s free advertising.


3. Plan Your Marketing Campaign – it’s actually not true with a business that “if you build it they will come”.  You have to create a “plan of attack”, something that progress logically and move you towards your ultimate goal of making money online.  Here’s a great article that might help you with that.  “My Top 9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners”.

  1. Love the Field of Dreams quote to make the point that building a website is not the only thing necessary to making your work at home dreams come true.

    Looks like you have a great idea and I can see this going far and wide. Keep up the great work, my friend.

    • Thanks Pat. I appreciate the comment and I’m hopeful this all works. Fortunately I’m in it for the long-term so I’ll keep on building cuz I know they will come. Great words.

  2. This is interesting, I think I’ll share this with my folks who are coming up on retirement soon and need a profitable hobby.

    • Thanks for reading. I’ve had folks I know who are also interested in blogging. There are still people who will say that they don’t even know how to turn a computer on let alone go on the internet. All the best to you.

  3. Really good post Rick. I agree with what you have written here. I already use all the vehicles you mentioned. One place where I get good inspiration and information is at WA. I love Kyle’s easy to understand way of explaining things…don’t you?
