Finding a way to create your own Job

Create your own Job! There is a better way to earn a living than working for a Boss.

If you are like me and you have found this page then you have been looking for a better way to earn an income and create your own job with out having to report every day to a boss.

create your own Job

There are many ways to create your own job, like starting your own small off line business ,mowing lawns, doing odd jobs, cleaning , selling stuff at the local markets and so on.

Or you could be looking at a larger scale of owing a franchise or a small store . It often takes a lot of time and effort and sometimes a big investment to get started in these sorts of businesses and often it is hard to find work or clients interested in what you have to offer.

Have you ever considered using the internet to create your own Job or start up a businesses? Maybe an on line store ,or a website selling your own or another companies products.  Have you asked your self how you could make money on the internet?

When I first started looking for some sort of work or business on line I asked my self the same question then  I wrote down a list of questions  that i though might be relevant to me at the time.

Take some time to ask your self these questions below

  1. What if there was a way I could start my own online business in a field that I am interested in and have a lot of knowledge about?
  2. Then another thought was how to start my own business with no money? Or at least a very minimum  of capital or could I even start for free using open source tools and i could then learn and earn from home?
  3. What if I could grow and scale this business so it is making me a full time income?
  4. What if I could set this business up in such a way that I don’t have to spend hours each day finding clients or leads?
  5. What if I could  automate it so that I don’t have to spend hours on the phone  consulting or working out  customer problems?
  6. How could I  get people interested in buying from me to visit my on line store or website?

What were your answers?

Please copy and paste my questions into the comments section below and put your own answer after each one, you can also add your own questions if you like
T
hese were the sort of answers going through my head at the time below.

My answer to Q1 . 

My answer was that I would use google and other search engines to see what was out there. Some of the things I asked google were ,how to create your own job?How to become your own boss,? How to start an on line business for free?

As I very soon found out (and some of you might have as well) that there are lots of scams and people trying to profit from your dilemma. Over the years I have  tried many different so called “systems” some even worked  for a short time and made some money but then got my google or FB  accounts penalized ,banned or closed down.

As I learnt more I got a little bit smarter and then I diligently read reviews of anything I was going to try out first. This is like trying to sort chaff from hay or looking for the proverbial needle in the hay stack  as a lot of the scammers put fake reviews on websites just to trick you into joining.

Some “Gurus” even do reviews to say certain products are scams  and still have their own affiliate links to those scams. I eventually found some real  marketers that gave out good solid information  but most of them only give you enough free stuff to convince them to join their expensive training programs.

Then after you join they try to sell you lots of programs and other stuff they say you need or the programs and information is so confusing you cant put it together yourself and when you ask for help  no one is interested as long as you keep paying your fees  . Have you been down this track already and tried to create your own job?

I wanted to know how to learn about affiliate marketing for free so i watched a lot of you tube video’s about building websites  and read  lots of posts on forums  and other peoples blogs about marketing and getting affiliate programs and how to set them up and link building and all other sorts of random stuff.

I  learnt the hard way but I did eventually work out how to build small websites and blogs about my hobbies and interests but it cost me a lot of time and money but I still hadn’t learnt enough  about getting visitors to my sites the proper way.

All of my sites were being penalized by google for having random unrelated back links (that the gurus  had taught me to buy cheap from link farms ) and my affiliate links were getting hacked and re-directed so I wasn’t even making commissions  on the ones that did find my site and click on them . So I eventually quit and went back to looking for normal type work.

create your own Job

My answer to Q2. 

A couple of years after my big learning curve I and not getting any  permanent type  work I again asked my self could you create your own job.?  What if I could do this Affiliate marketing thing myself and ditch the high priced website builders and “Guru” websites platforms  and build my own stand alone websites using cheap or free hosting and find my own affiliate programs?

After spending a few years on line trying to do this I had found some good reliable resources(mostly free ) that I would be able to use on a very tight budget . I did some searches on line and found that i still had some current domain names and some that were parked and a couple of websites that were just sitting doing nothing.

I started building these out again getting rid of the crappy back links and other junk that I had added from advice of the so called Gurus then I slowly lost interest again and just basically forgot about them.

About a year after this  I started getting some small commissions randomly here and there paid into my Pay-Pall account. At first I couldn’t work out where they were coming from.

After going through my bank account and finding that these payments were coming from click bank and other affiliate products that were still on my existing websites.  That made me click back into gear and I thought that maybe i could make it work after all.

My answer to Q3.

The answer to Question 3 /4 and 5 came to  me in an instant. Q3To scale it up all I had to do was drive more interested people to my websites.

My answer to Q4.

I had not spent any time on these sites for over a year and now they were making me a small amount of money so if I just spend a small amount of time refining the sites and getting more traffic they should bring in more money with very little effort.

My answer to Q5. 

It was already running automated and I hadn’t had one phone call in relation to these business as they were running on automatic pilot  so as to speak  even if they were running blind and only getting small amounts of organic traffic.

My answer to Q6.

To get people to my website i needed  to find targeted internet trafficI was back to square one as all of the traffic methods I had learned though the “gurus” were not really working. I then started researching again  I went on some webinars promising to teach sure fire traffic methods using face book and other platforms.

I spent well over $2000  on these only to find that they were so confusing that I couldn’t make them work and even though they advertised full support during the initial webinars  I was basically left on my own and got left behind  and some of these were limited time courses  so if you didn’t finish them  you automatically got booted out any way after 6 months or so.

One particular learning platform that I had done a free trial with a few years ago  come back in to my mind .It had no up sells and you could do the first part of the course for free and it had 7 days access to all of the site and you could post group messages that people responded to right away and gave help with out asking for anything in return.

At that time i just didn’t have any more money to waste on what I was doing and was going through a relationship break up . My oldest son also had a mental break down and moved back in with me so I did not follow through.

After getting back on my feet and my son  was OK and  went his own way and I was still  seeing  the odd random pay pal payment I started thinking about  starting up internet marketing again.

I asked my self what if I could find a group of like minded people  that would be able to help me with their knowledge ? What if they could teach me the proper methods of setting up my sites and getting traffic and in return I could help some of them back with what I have already learned?

Then I remembered i had already found such a group a couple of years earlier called Wealthy Affiliate .    A quick couple of google searches and I found them again . They still had the free courses which had all been updated and the member ship was still the same price.

Join Wealthy Affiliate and create your own Job

I have since joined their Premium  program which is half price for the first month and haven’t looked back. What I learnt in the first 7 days before going premium (and I only went on the site twice to start on the lessons) Was more than it had taken me 5 years to learn on my own.

About Andrew and how to start an on line business with no money

How to start an on line business with no money and become your own boss.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my site and what I have to offer to help you on  how to start an on line business with no money. Or at least a very minimum of start up costs.

MY STORY

My name is Andrew, I have mostly worked in industries where I have had to comply to company guidelines and work long hours for small pay and not knowing if the job will ever be permanent.I have also run my own very small businesses like handy man services and computer repairs mowing etc, but I was always trying to find work and doing PR and advertising that takes up a lot of my personal  time.

But I wanted to find something better to do with my time and to earn the money on line that my effort is worth.  I am also getting older and at 57 years of age and I wanted to find something less physically demanding than mowing over grown lawns .

Pushing a mower for a living at age 57 there must be an easier way to earn a living so i joined Wealthy Affiliates to learn how how to start an on line business with no moneyPhoto taken March 2018

Do you relate to this ? If you do then keep reading.

The Gurus Promise

When I started searching for  how to start an on line business with no money and other ways to make money on line with a limited budget I joined various “Guru” programs and platforms that promised me I would make $ millions with little to no effort .

Some of these did teach me a reasonable bit about on line marketing and I learned how to build websites, how to do on and off site SEO, how to write articles and much more. Also, a lot of the programs I joined were scams with various up-sells and having to pay to learn each step.

At the time they had such convincing stories and sales pitches and Promises I honestly believed their pitch in the above screen shot that I could start making money in three hours from starting with their system.

( I was very gullible back then  )
Most of these systems and sites I joined had a few things in common, they all wanted to get more money from me and never completely joined the dots.

Most of them had poor customer support “if any at all” some might reply to an email a week after I had asked a question and had already spent hours findinghow to start an on line business with no money the answer my self using search engines like google Bing ,Yahoo etc.

 

The main thing lacking in most of these courses was how to learn exactly how to start an on line business with no money or very little money. And I also wanted to learn how to get targeted traffic to a website. Some did teach free traffic methods but most of these were a bit shady and could also get your websites banned from google and other search engines.Some taught paid traffic methods as well but they were either too technical or used paid traffic from dubious websites that that only sent random visitors that just clicked off as soon as they landed as they were expecting something else.

Even the ones I thought were good traffic sources and I was getting lots of clicks on my site only sent me clicks from totally unrelated websites so as soon as people landed on my site they clicked back off as what I  was offering had nothing do do with what they were looking for. This ended up getting some of my websites penalized when the panda and penguin updates came in (I cant remember which came first).

An SEO beak through.

I  was lucky enough to be invited to a 3 day local website building and SEO business course through my local Gympie council. A group of local business people attended the three day seminar and the guest speaker was from an SEO company from Bunberburg QLD.

Local Business seminar about local websites and SEO and how to start an on line business with no money or a very tight budget.

After the last presentation there was a free lunch and time to talk to the guest speaker and network with other business owners.  Some of the business owners at the meeting joined their SEO  services but these were quite expensive.

As I had shown a lot of interest and asked a lot of questions during Seminar some of the smaller start up business owners approached me for free advice and I ended up with two clients that needed help with their websites.

At the seminar I took as many notes as possible on the work sheet we were given and started incorporating some of these idea’s into local websites I was working on at the time.

I did get efficient at building small websites for very small local businesses but all of the customers that hired me to build their websites  were once off’s. They were mainly small family businesses like painters  and electricians, mobile mechanics, artists the local Hotel and the like in a very small town of about 600 people  The deal was that I  basically built websites for these small business owners at a very cheap price as a learning curve for my web-site building and learning more about  implementing local SEO.

These small business owners only wanted them built as cheap as possible and wanted to be found in Google for local search terms. They also wanted me to  teach them the basics of up loading  images etc. After that they usually didn’t require any more services,  as they couldn’t afford on going SEO or periodic maintenance.

Here is one of my websites I built that is still going after 7 years with basically no maintenance and keeps bringing him in work week after week. I just set up re-occurring payments for his domain name and hosting. ( I still some times log in and tweak a few things for him about once a year but don’t get paid for it)

Just do a search for” painters and decorators Goomeri Queensland Australia “and it should come up on page one of google in the organic search results underneath  the listed paid advertisements from other companies.

(do this search and you will know i am a real person)

Also check out my old site that is still up but not making any me any  money lately as most small businesses have shifted over to Face book pages   http://www.totalbusinesswebsitesolutions.com/ Total Business Website Solutions 

I can still be contacted through the email address on the site above site if you want more verification.

Getting back into Internet marketing

I decided that I wanted more than once off work and started concentrating again on building websites that I could earn a passive income from by affiliating with other products on my sites.

how to start an on line business with no money

Building out sites for small local businesses and getting them indexed in Google local searches is a lot easier than building profitable Affiliate marketing websites.

With Affiliate type websites you are trying to get the whole worlds attention to your website. So i needed to learn a whole lot more about building these types of websites and how to get targeted traffic to them. I was also broke at the time and was looking for different idea’s on how to start an on line business with no money.

I then stumbled across another affiliate marketing platform a few years ago called Wealthy Affiliate and did some free training, but at the time in my life I didn’t have the money to afford the full premium training,  so again I went back to doing my own thing making a little money along the way but not as much as my websites could be earning  if they had been properly set up.

I finally decided to join this platform again about 5 years later and so far I have not been disappointed as I  have learned more in the first 5 days than I did going it alone and trying to follow “GURUS” for the last 5 years.

When i joined Wealthy Affiliate for the second time I signed up for the premium version after 3 days because the training was so good and organized.  After upgrading to the premium version there were no up-sells- no annoying emails trying to sell me junk programs and no annoying phone calls .

I received inbox support from the top admins(Kyle and Carson) as soon as I logged in and also a welcome email from the person I joined through. You will also get emails from the person who introduced you to WA if you followed their link .

This is how you can get direct support from that person.(if you join from my links here you will get my personal support) and also support from  the owners of the website Kyle and Carson.

(You will get other emails from people replying to your forum posts and other members  who PM you .)

But you can easily turn this feature off in your members area control panel and check for these messages inside your membership dash board instead of them filling up your private email box.

Wealthy Affiliate has a great support team who helps with any problem with in hours if not minutes of you posting in live help. There is also live community support so if you have any questions as you are working on your site and training you can ask for help and most times you will get an answer directly to your questions.

There is also a 24/7/ 365day technical support for website problems. I will tell you more about this platform inside the main pages of my site.

Why am I helping  others that are struggling?

I have decided to set up this site to help other people who were like me who are struggling to make money on line and help them avoid the gurus and on line scammers and also teach them the correct and ethical way to start a proper on line business.

My research shows that a lot of people out there are wanting to know how to start an on line business with no money or with very little capital outlay.   There are a lot of people looking on the internet and doing searches with this exact search term for on line for work or ways of making money on the internet and it seems like a big percentage of these have a very low paying jobs  or have lost recently their job .

My main purpose of this site is to attract the attention those of you  who are still struggling and may also have been ripped off by the GURUS and set you the right path to success.
