How To Make Money From HomeGo to Google and type make money from home. You will get around 50 million of search result. Does that mean there are 50 million opportuntiies to earn from home? Unlikely. 45 million of them are probably scams and 4 million are not worth the effort.
Still there is probably at least a million of genuine opportunities to make money from your home. It's a must to explore them if you want to earn alternative income or quit your job.
Here are the most viable ways to make money from home:
Freelancing and Telecommuting
If you are an expert in something this is the first must-look opportunity. A good programmer, web designer, architect or a writer can make good income by freelancing. A lot of experts make more than they would get in a well paying company and some even start a business as an expansion of their freelancing.
Freelancing is not only an IT business like many people think. It is appropriate for any profession that can be done remotely. You can consider freelancing if you work in some of the following fields: Website or graphic design, Marketing, Programming, Multimedia, Writing, Translation, Support, Legal Services, Medical Consulting, Sales, Telemarketing, ERP/CRM, Fashion Design, Interior Design, Landscape Design, Photography, Videography, Business Consulting, Networking, Engineering, CAD/CAM design and architecture, Accounting etc.
As you see almost every profession can be freelanced.
Telecommuting is something very similar to freelancing but usually we call it that when you work remotely for a single company or customer instead of many customers.

Everyone in the "make money online" business is crazy about affiliate marketing. What is it exactly? Affiliate marketing is a simple but very powerful concept. The vendors/merchants of various products and services offer commission payments to the affiliates for sending sales to their stores. For example a merchant of t-shirts can offer you 10% of every sale that is made to a buyer coming to your website. The merchants provide the affiliates with special links and banners that they cna use on their websites and blogs and through this links they can see where each buyer comes from.
You can earn money by affiliate marketing if you start a blog or website and promote products on it. You don't need to do any selling, packing or shipping. All you have to do is to promote - the merchants take care for everything else.
If you want to make money with affiliate marketing you need to create websites that attract targeted visitors. Then you need to provide those visitors with quality content (reviews, tutorials, guides) so they can decide to buy some of the products that you advertise.
Succeeding with affiliate marketing requires research and hard work. Soon we'll publish here the Ultimate beginners guide to affiliate marketing.
