Sick & tired of your job or just want to supplement your income?
If you are looking to a work at home business, I say 'good for you'! The internet provides amazing opportunities, but wait!!!
Not so fast, you'll need to know a few things BEFORE you start or join any of them.
And sorry to disappoint you, but I need to let you know up front, that the majority of home-based jobs opportunities presented to us online are false!
And it doesn't matter whether they pitch as data entry jobs, stuffing envelopes, posting ads, doing surveys or telemarketing, THE MAJORITY of them ARE scams- they steal your money!
Read my lips, They-Steal-Your-Money!
But losing your money is one thing...
Perhaps most significant is that they waste your precious time and cause serious embarrassment to you and your family [many times they ask you to tell all your friends and family].
And bear in mind also that they usually appear highly impressive and irresistible, requiring you to ACT NOW, but for the most part they are all the same.
From my humble experience online, and from been scammed a few times- thank God not a lot of money, I learnt that the best way to make money online is...(don't be surprised)
...to have your own website!
And can I tell you a secret?
...That's what all the internet gurus have in common. All those who are making significant (and honest) money online have their own website!!!
Simply put, If you are going to tap into the power of the internet, you need a little website!
OK, keep reading.
But not just a website - like the majority out there, but a simple, yet complete online business building package.
After all, it is still a business you are doing, although the web offers you a lot more flexibility, freedom and quality time for you and your family- compare to the tedious day job.
Your own website, pulling its own traffic, forms the platform for you to make considerable money online over time- from numerous angles!
...You can offer finder fee services, do referrals, sell your own product, the product of others [affiliate marketing] or even just sell advertisement, AND of course incorporate the lucrative Adsense program from Google. You decide!
Whichever way, you simply can't go wrong!
NO NEED TO FEAR
Many persons however, [and I suspect you too] shy away from getting their own website.
They say "that's for techies", "I don't have the time" and/or "I don't know what to create a site about".
FIRST THINGS FIRST:
- Creating websites are not only for techies anymore,
GONE ARE THE DAYS! Almost anyone can get started with their own site. The technology is so advanced that if you can create an email, you can do it.
- You don't need a lot of time!
I created this site, www.my-island-jamaica.com while STILL DOING MY DAY JOB. In the evenings when I get home I put in an hour or two, and sometimes on the weekend.
- Don't know what to create your site on?
Don't you have a passion? Something you love? A hobby?
Say, pets, sports, cake-baking, drawing, singing, fashion, sewing,writing, ...whatever?
See? I knew it!
You are already on your way. More in this article.
How about YOUR OWN KNOWLEDGE?
Don't you find that people learn from your knowledge? At work, at church, at school, at social activities or around the community?
NEVER underestimate your own knowledge! This article proves my point.

--End Side Note--
Website aside, there are numerous other genuine and reputable work at home options for you to consider, of course the key is always to find them, and more importantly, get the "know how" - which, in my view, is the most critical element.
Sadly though, many persons have been deceived by people claiming to have 'the formula' or 'the secret'.
They sometimes pay hundreds and thousands of dollars only to find that the so called 'work at home' opportunity doesn't deliver, that's if they even got the product in the first place!
AVOID THE PITFALLS
So your big question now is:
How can you find a credible program to buy, subscribe to or promote?; something that can provide a decent supplement to your current income, or completely free you from the shackles of your day job.
I honestly don't have all the answers, but again, my first suggestion would be to start with your own website, REMEMBER, that's how the big shots are making online money!
Many persons however prefer the faster lanes, for example, affiliate marketing.
Admittedly, affiliate marketing has some tremendous advantages.
Not only is it the easiest, quickest and simplest way to start making money online, it can be very convenient as well.
But there are some pitfalls you MUST be mindful of first.
There are some basics you need to establish BEFORE you get started otherwise you are setting yourself up for TROUBLE!
I would highly recommend you take a look at my affiliate tips to get a good insight into some of the things to watch for.
