What do you think? Do you have to work to make money? I’m not talking about earning interest on money you already have, or getting stock dividends. Nothing like that… I mean that if you have no money and need to earn some, so you have to work?
Well, of course, you do!
Well, sort of.
I am not a rich person, I don’t have a bunch of family wealth filling my drawers with money. I have to earn the money that I need to keep my kids in school, keep dinner on my family’s table, etc. But, when I think about it, I don’t really feel like I work. I am sitting here in my office on the second floor of my house right now. Next door, they are building a new house. I see a bunch of construction workers carrying around stuff, pushing wheelbarrows, doing all kinds of manual labor. Yet, I am sitting here typing and am probably earning more than most of the crew combined. Sometimes I feel a little guilty when I think about that. However, what I do is not exclusive. It’s not limited to just me. Anybody can do it!
So, you ask, how do I earn my money? I earn my money on the internet through a variety of methods. OK, now you are thinking that this is some kind of “get rich quick” scheme, and I am going to be asking for your credit card number soon, right? Nope. Ain’t gonna happen! I don’t want or need your credit card, because I am not selling you anything. I just want to teach some people how they too can earn a good living without having to go out and work!
The actual ways that I earn my money are two-fold. The method that I’ve been doing the longest and is the most profitable for me is through a number of e-Commerce websites that I own and operate. A lot of you know what e-Commerce is, but maybe some don’t. e-Commerce means selling things through the Internet. Don’t worry… I already told you, I am not going to ask you to buy anything! I have several different specialty stores on the Internet that sell products, which I ship to customers all over the world! By doing this kind of business, I have been able to earn more money now than I ever did when I went to my “regular” job. And, now I am working on another way of earning money too – by publishing content on the Internet! What does that mean? Well, I publish information – like this information that you are reading – on the Internet for free, but I have advertising on my websites, and the ads help me earn money. I just started with trying to earn money through content websites last year, and so far it is doing well. I know it can do better, so I am working on creating more content, improving the ways that I present my sites, etc.
Hang around this blog, and I will start showing you how to do it yourself! You don’t have to buy anything… you don’t have to send me any money…. just devote a few minutes a day to read. Then, when you are ready to start devoting more time so that you can duplicate what I teach you here on the “Virtual Earner” blog!
hi! wow, this is good! I’ve been praying for guidance about on-line jobs and I believe you are God’s instrument…see you @ friendster, friend! Good luck, good soul!
Hi Janice – Thanks for the nice compliment! I will do my best to help you have a little success in making money on the net. If there are topics you would like to see me comment on, please be sure to let me know!
This is exactly what I expected to find out after reading the title Do you have to work to make money?. Thanks for informative article
Hi Eric – Glad you found it informative!
I discovered this site by reading some of your posts from live in the philippines blog. Im excited to read your future posting on this blog.
Hi Jerico – Hang around and keep reading! I hope that I can answer all your questions!
Hi Bob, I know you said that some people took advantage of you in regards to e commerce. Did you say, that because of this you are not going to teach this portion of making money? It seems that this is what gave you your current success and is providing you a greater percentage of your earnings.I would like to learn as well. Will you show us? Or, is E bay the starting point?
Hi Tony – I am happy to talk about any aspect of how to make money on the net. I won’t hold anything back. Right now I am talking about eBay, because I believe it is a good place to learn the ropes, and make some money at the same time! We’ll get into some other ways to make money as days go by.
Wow, Bob! I have to admit that for the last few hours I have gorged myself on all of these delectable concepts! Still, I sit in disbelief that it could all be so easy! The fantastic idea of making supplementary income… even if only 300 per month… by blogging about the joys of living in a mudhut with my little family! What an inspiration… if I could find it in me to dedicate the brain power to a project like that, I would definitely need your help in a very big way! I see it this way: you have already taken a phenomenal step in assissting me thus far.
Hi Lawrence J – Believe me, it can be done! But, you have to persevere a bit. It won’t happen overnight. If you start blogging, it takes time to build up an audience, and you won’t make any money until you have a significant audience for your blog. But, if you keep writing, the people will come. Of course, you have to do a little more than just write. Do things like leaving comments on other related blogs where people may click over and check your site. Don’t leave comments simply as an advertisement, but leave genuine, helpful comments that people will value. I know that this can happen for you, because I have been able to do it myself.
I’v read your blogs off and on for a while now and I’ve always like what I read. Basically because you’re doing what I’ve wanted to do for so long.
I decided to comment on your first article on virtual earner simply because it’s going to be my starting point.
Hi Don – Welcome aboard! I’m glad that you visited, and I’m glad to know that you have been enjoying my sites.
