If you have a part time job, have a few extra bills to pay or just feel like trying something new, making money online could well be the answer for you. Whether you are a part-timer, a work-from-home Mum, or just someone who is curious as to how to make money online – read on to discover just how easy it is to get started.
I’m going to be totally honest with you, making millions is not something that will happen overnight, it can take a lot of hard graft and success can often be a slow thing. However, if you are willing to put in the work to earn that extra bit of cash (which could one day develop into a lot of extra cash), online freelancing is definitely for you.
First, you need to decide what you are good at. What can you offer the online community? It doesn’t have to be a totally unique talent that you offer – if data entry is what you have been doing at your job for the past 4 years, you will undoubtedly be very good at it and will have become well practiced in this area.
All you need to do is find someone that needs this service so that you can help them out. If you are signed up to Fourerr, you are already well on your way to earning your first of many $4, if you haven’t signed up, just do it now – it only take a couple of minutes!
Are you registered yet? Good. Let’s get you earning some money. Creating a gig on Fourerr advertises your service to all buyers out there that need help. If you are offering your data entry services (for example), all you need to do is let people know. Buyers that are looking for a reliable data inputter will come to you if you have the ratings that prove your excellent track record (for tips on how to promote your gig see previous blog post “Top 5 Secrets for Sellers”).
I know, $4 doesn’t seem like a lot, so think of it as lots of $4 payments. For example, if you have four gig orders and you know that you can get a gig done within 15 minutes; that is $16 per hour that you could potentially make.
Similarly, if you know you will take a whole hour to do a gig but you are only earning $4 from it, set a more realistic gig or maybe even set a time limit on your gig e.g. “I will do 20 minutes of data entry for $4”.
If you are serious about making money online, you don’t need to worry about how slowly things are picking up on Fourerr, they will pick up! Sign up to a few freelance sites and get an idea of the types of work people are looking for. Once your orders start to come in on Fourerr, you will soon be earning a steady income, and the better the work you deliver, the better the feedback you receive. Ultimately it is this amazing feedback that will get you more and more work which in the long run could pay for your weekly food shopping, phone bills or other expenses.
With the extra income you will no longer need to worry about making ends meet, instead you can just enjoy your life!
