Making Money From Home

Advertise Your Skills Online

No one knows you better than you know yourself, and that includes your talents. If you have a particular skill in an area, then let the world know about it. You can even make a bit of money from it if you advertise online.

The online marketplace is full of people who are looking for someone like you. This is one way that many businesses start. Others see a niche that hasn’t been explored and blow the market wide open.

With the economy in a poor state, this could be just the right time for you to get started with a side business that could bring in much-needed cash.

Getting Started Online

  • Discover your skills.  What can you do? Maybe you are a financial whiz; you can offer services as a financial consultant. Or maybe you are a teacher and can offer services as a tutor. Are you good at planning parties? Join the niche of party planners online.


  • Decide on your area of expertise.  Let us use party planning for example. Will you specialise in children’s parties, adult parties, or weddings? There are many niches within the party planning genre. Which area you will pursue drives your advertising and the type of money you can make.


  • What will you offer? Before you create your website (which you will need), decide what services and/or products you will offer to potential customers. As a party planner, you can offer party planning kits for each type of party. It could include checklists, ideas for decorations, and even recipes.

  • What about special reports? You could teach others how to become party planners with informative reports and eBooks. Each new product or service can continue to increase your potential income.


  • Create your website. This will be the place where others will learn all about you and your services and/or products. Your website needs to be functional, tell something about you as well as showcasing what you have to offer to customers.

  • Find ways to advertise. All advertising doesn’t have to cost. You can find no or low-cost methods of advertising online, to begin with. Article marketing offers a way to show your expertise and also get some links back to your website. Once your site begins to gain traffic you can consider investing in paid forms of advertising.


  • Use social networking. Create a Facebook page for your business. Tell all of your friends about your new enterprise. Join business networking sites like LinkedIn. Stay in touch with customers and followers on Twitter. All of these accounts are free.
