The internet is always changing, so when you’re trying to earn money from home, it’s important to have multiple streams of income on the go at all times.
As a blogger, this doesn’t mean that you need several blogs working at once. It does, however, mean that you want to have multiple systems in place bringing in money, in case one suddenly falls flat. It’s no longer enough to plug in your Google adsense code and call it a day! While ad networks provide a great opportunity for passive income, the traffic you need in order to make a full time income from ads alone (especially for some topics) is astronomical!
Bloggers that realize this know that there is always a way to profit from your blog, you just need to keep your eyes peeled for it. Many will initially expand beyond ad networks to affiliate marketing, or offering private ad placement on their website for a monthly fee, and these are absolutely great options.
There is another venue however that allows you maximize on the earning potential of your following, both through your website, and on social media. Enter, Sponsored Tweets!
Sponsored Tweets (by IZEA) is a platform that basically connects you to everyone who is looking for their business or product to be promoted online (for a fee). Some will have set prices, others you can bid on, but regardless the amount is always beneficial to both you and the merchant!
A quick search through the Sponsored Tweets Marketplace will show you the variety that’s available. From a couple of dollars to share a Tweet with your followers on Twitter, to a couple hundred dollars for a well written sponsored post on your website, there’s always something new!
Merchants are able to contact you through this platform as well, making it even easier for you to see offers that relate to your blog. When someone does send an offer your way though, it is still up to you whether or not you would like to accept or decline. Always do what feels most in line with your blog.
The great thing about Sponsored Tweets opportunities is that payment is based upon the completion of a task, not the response the merchant receives. So unlike affiliate marketing, your readers don’t need to make a purchase for you to earn money! Sponsored Tweets offers a fantastic and well organized platform for bloggers to maximize their profit potential, and earn a reliable and diverse income from home.

Electing to stay at home and care for your family doesn’t mean that you have to give up having an income. There are thousands of Moms who have found a way to make a part-time or full-time income working from home, and you can do it too.
Here are 5 ways you can utilize the internet to build an income:
Blogging isn’t for everyone, it takes effort and persistence, but it will eventually pay off. Note I said eventually. Blogging isn’t a get rich quick method, it can take several years before a blog begins to make a passive income, so if you have time, a passion for writing, and don’t need an immediate pay-off then blogging might be the perfect way for you to build an income.
If you are crafty and enjoy making decorative items then starting a store on Etsy may be a good way for you to build income. Etsy is an online marketplace where users sell crafts, clothes, purses, trinkets, graphics, and a magnitude of other objects. It can be a great place to cash out on your creativity.
Italki is a website where users teach other users a foreign language. There are users looking to learn English, Spanish, Japanese, French, Italian, and more. Their service matches you up with clients so all you have to do is sign up, teach, and get paid.
EBay is great because it is a marketplace where you can sell just about anything, and the items don’t have to be new – used items sell just as well as the new ones do. This means you can pick up items cheap at garage sales, flea markets, or secondhand stores and sale them for a profit on EBay. There are many people out there who make a fulltime income doing just that.
If you are a skilled writer, then there is money to be made at Constant-Content. Constant-Content is a site where skilled writers can upload original articles and list them for sale at decent prices. Most 500 word articles sale for over $30. Of course, Constant-Content keeps 35% of the sale, but it can still add up fast. The catch? They are very picky about who they let write for them and the quality of the articles that are submitted, so you really need to be a polished writer for this to work, but once you get in there is definitely money to be made here.
These are some great ways to make some real money online, and with some dedication and persistence they can be grown into full time incomes. Please keep in mind that working from home isn’t for everyone. It requires a person who is focused, disciplined, and organized. Working from home will also require patience, as no business is a complete success overnight. There will be a lot of trial and error at first but once you get the hang of it you will start to see your efforts pay off, and maybe even have a little fun in the process. Good luck!
