So the good news is you have retired. The bad news is, you wish you had more money.
Have you ever heard of affiliate marketing. It is a way to make money online without having to put out a lot of money for start-up cost.
Make money when retired in your pajamas
You work from home, you just need a computer and internet access. No cost involved like setting up a brick and mortar business, which at this point in time who would want to deal with that.
You set your own time frame, how many hours you want to devote to this, how much money you want to invest in this endeavor, if any.
There is a wealth of information out there on how to get an online or affiliate marketing business up and running.
Don’t expect to get rich quick
When researching it, just be careful not to get caught up in any of the “Gurus” sales pitch. Stay clear of the ones who promise you fancy cars, mansions, and boats. And how to get rich quick with the click of a button.
There is work involved and it can get frustrating at times, but it will keep your mind sharp and give you a purpose and drive to accomplished something worthwhile. And just think of the sense of accomplishment when you succeed.
How many retired people can say that they have their own website. I know one of my sons told me that he had a lot of friends that thought they were computer geeks, but none of them had ever built a website. I know it’s easier now than it was to get a site up and running, but I still think it is a big accomplishment.
Yes, it can be completely free
You can do it at your leisure and you can do it for free. There are many site to get up and running for free. But you might be better off to purchase your own domain so it can’t be taken away from you.
Not very hard to do.
When I started my business, I didn’t even know how to copy and paste, so you can do this with very few computer skills. And you will be surprised at how much you will learn as you build your business, because, yes, it is a business and should be treated as such.
You can start a blog and share you hobbies or interests with others.
If you have a love of gardening that is a great place to start. But narrow it down to a specific plant, flower or technique.
