Good day folks. Today I want to talk about a specific topic that caught my eye recently. This topic is going to be the financial situation where seniors find themselves in after they retire. In my country if you are older than 65 then you must retire, so this gives you around 47 years to work if started at 18 years of age. If you do not have a pension fund that will pay you out when you retire, then you have a problem.
Now what if you have a pension fund and it does not cover all of your expenses? The ideal is to stop working if you reach 65 years and then rest or focus on a hobby. But unfortunately life does not work that way and sometimes we find ourselves in a situation where you have to keep on working to make an existence especially in this economy.
If you are in this situation I would not recommend you start with a job that entails physical labour. I would rather focus on work at home jobs for seniors where you work at the comfort of your own home.
Below I will recommend some of the methods that work and how you can start.
This is one of the easiest ways to make money online but it can be very limited. This job requires that you answer a couple of short questions. These questions are in a multiple choice format and can range from 10 up to 50 questions per survey.
You can also expect to earn from $0.5 up to $5 per survey and each survey can range from 5 up to 30 minutes. Completing surveys will certainly not make you rich, but it can give you an extra $200 or $400 per month. Some people make up to $1400 per month and it is very rare to make more than that. It is very easy to do, but the income is more limited.
The reason why I say it is limited is that you earn money per hour and the amount of time you have is limited. The first challenge that most people have is the start. They do not know where to begin, which panels to join, what to look for in a panel and also the most common mistakes people make.
This is where Survey Royal comes into play. I have created step-by-step training modules that you can follow that will save you hours of research and it will also point you in the right direction. This is my gift to you and all you have to do is to click the link below. It is also free to do.
Affiliate marketing is also a great way to make money online. Let me break the step up for you:
Step 1. Build a website.
Some people think it is hard, but this is actually the easy part. You really do not need any experience in website building to do this as you can build a website in under 5 minutes. The website acts as the foundation or as the skeleton of your business.
Step 2. Create content for your business.
This is also an easy thing to do. The content is in the form of articles. This very article you are reading is an example of how an article looks like. The articles will provide the meat on the carcass or the building above the foundation. The more meat you put on the carcass or the higher you build the building, the more exposure will your website get.
Step 3. Drive traffic to your website.
Through the content you create you will also get traffic or visitors to your website. Each article you create has a possibility to get ranked in Google. Once you get ranking, you will also get exposure.
Step 4. Earn money.
Now that you have traffic, you can start to earn money. The best way to do this is to promote affiliate offers, so you do not need to own them. There are a lot of companies online that has an affiliate program such as Amazon, Walmart or Clickbank. There are also hundreds of companies that has private affiliate networks. I know of a guy who has his own beer website where he promotes beer making equipment.
For who is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing requires much more work, patience and learning than online surveys, BUT the income you can get is unlimited. If you are willing to learn and improve your typing then this might work for you as creating articles such as this one will be the forefront of your business. So if you love typing, then this can work for you.
You can also start your own online business with $47 per month.
Today I only scratched the surface with making money online. I strongly believe in only recommending people to things that I have already tried. These 2 methods are also the cheapest (if not free such as the surveys) to start with. These methods works and you need to wear the shoe that fits.
If you have nothing to do, you can easily do both if you want to. Please leave me a comment below if you have any questions 🙂
