I was looking to find a job that would be suitable for work at home. Or more accurately a source on income that could be generated from anywhere I happened to be. It occurred to me that many people were making comfortable incomes using their computers. That meant as long as I had a computer and could get online I could work. I must say as I started this search my knowledge of a computer was very rudimentary. I could word process, I could email – even send attachments and I could search on Google. I had a very sketchy understanding of a few other programs. However always the one to never say die. If someone else can do this I was sure I could learn.
This blog is a journal of me jumping into the process of learning Internet marketing. The questions I had to start with were:
Could I do it?
Where could I learn to do it?
How long will it take me to learn this?
How do I start?
Where can I find reliable information?
I am not a techie how can I publish a web page
How do people make money doing this?
What is affiliate marketing?
What will it cost?
Can I make enough money to meet my needs?
Who can I trust?
As I started out in my quest to find out how online business marketing works I was lucky that one of my daughter’s friends was able to point me to people that I could trust. I will talk a bit more about that later. As I have gone along learning this work online home business I have found the two most useful things are – one to focus, it is so easy to get distracted and two to persevere. Internet marketing is not a get rich over night business but one from which you can steadily grow your sources of income. As many have helped me on my journey I am happy to share with you what I have learned. One of the “gurus” stated there is no mystery to online Internet marketing, just things you know and things you don’t know. All you seniors that want to learn to work at home come along with me while we find out all those things we don’t know.
