How To Make Money From Home | Ways To Make Money


Here is a look at what I have planned this year. It was fun in 2007 but a few changes need to be made.

  • I am going to be posting a lot less in 2008. I don’t have the time to keep up with the pace I had in 2007 and I believe I was posting too frequently anyway.
  • I am goin to start making niche sites. I have become increasingly convinced that niche sites are a great way to make long term income. I am going to be closely watching Case Study #1 and this Adsense Niche Case Study to learn how to do it all properly. I suggest you check those two websites out if you haven’t already.
  • I am going to make more Squidoo lenses. Squidoo lenses are almost like niche websites and you can make as many of them as you want for FREE. I have about 15 lenses and although only half of them get regular traffic, I make about 1 affiliate sale per month on those. I do absolutely nothing to update them and they still get some traffic and make sales! You can’t beat that.
  • I am going to keep going with Build A Niche Store but I have gotten bored with my stores. I have never spent anything near the time I should have to make my stores better and to get them more traffic. I love the $25.00 Ebay referrals but so many people already belong to Ebay that those sign ups are few and far between. If you haven’t already, read how to get a 50% discount on your purchase of Build A Niche Store.
  • I am going to keep looking for more ways to make money and the best work from home jobs. I want to never have all my eggs in one basket and have a few money making endeavors going at all times.
  • I am going to continue to point out the ridiculous aspects of working at a job I dislike. Working in a variety of office environments allows me to see all the rediculous things that go on in the office as we all work for our silly bosses.
  • I have a long way to go if my goal of nuking my day job by 2010 is to be achieved. Based on what I made this year away from my job, I figure I am only about 1/10th of the way to my goal.

    I was looking at squidoo. What does it provide you over just putting the same items on your blog? Is it easier to find a suidoo page via search engines?

    The reading of Blogger Unleashed sure does change the way you think. Spent all night reading it myself. The niche sites seems to be the way to go alright.
    Best of luck with 2008

    I know Squidoo used to be indexed and highly placed by Google very quickly. Then that changed and now it is not as good but still works. I’m not sure why some of my lenses have caught on and some haven’t.

    The nice thing about Squidoo is for those who have no websites or blogs, they can make individualized squidoo pages which is probably easier to do and learn than setting up a blog.

    I second your nomination of Squidoo. It provides a lot more than just revenue sharing through the Squidoo site.
