Earning online

Make a living online

Making a living onlineA lot of us these days dream of being able to make a living online, rather than doing a normal 9 to 5 job. Well I say why not? what is wrong with wanting to be your own boss and it is becoming more and more popular. We are in the age of Youtubers/vloggers and affiliate marketers as well as others all online.

You can sit at home or anywhere you like on the internet and the fantastic thing is that you can earn even when you are asleep, what is not to like. You are not dictated to when you take a break or to go on a holiday, usually there is 3 weeks off in a year and sometimes you miss doing things that you really wanted to. But a lot of work is involved in getting that online income and it may take many months or years, but it is doable.

The power of the internet is quite extraordinary and with a large number of the worlds population now online, this massive opportunity has to be explored. Now not everybody wants to replace their 9 to 5 job and work online, that is fine, you have to enjoy what you do and by no means is working online really easy, otherwise we would all be earning millions, although there are people out there who do and with hard work it is possible to get a fantastic income.

In my opinion the education system here in the UK and maybe in other countries, that being entrepreneurial should be encouraged, of course Maths, Science and English are important, but it should no longer be the case that the only thing you can do is to get a job. It is no longer the case that you can only be a retail worker, maybe an accountant or in an office based job, there is more especially in the modern time that we are in now. Innovation and being able to earn more than a fixed wage and not having to be accepted for a pay rise to live just above the bread line are just a couple of benefits to making a living online, but also applies to working for yourself offline to.

Family and friends may not believe in you trying to make a living online, they may think its nonsense. Believe me it isn’t, if you have that dream, keep believing in it and work whenever you can on what you decide to do, like creating a blogging website and earning commissions through people clicking on your product links and earning through advertising.

  1. Hey Eden,

    I’ve really enjoyed reading this article as you’ve provided us with tonnes of valuable information. From my point of view, I think that their should be an Undergraduate/Bachelors degree in all universities called “Affiliate Marketing”. They should do something like this and teach kids some Computer and English skills. The reason why I say English is because they can learn the necessary skills in order to write good content for their blogs/websites.

    Thanks a lot for taking your precious time in writing this blog post. Keep up the good work Eden!

    1. Hello,

      I completely agree, there should be more emphasis on affiliate marketing in universities and about blogging in schools. I would like to think it is getting better.

Dedication is key! I hope they will listen this time and put more effort and be patient enough to get results.

    1. Patience is the key and it can be easy to get down and just give up when the results are not coming in, but there must be the belief that it will happen.
