Probably one of the quickest and easiest ways to start making money with a work from home job is by blogging. If you love to write and are good at it this could be a very good way for you to start bringing in some extra income while you are having fun at the same time. You will find that there are a variety of different sites out there dealing with blogs that actually reach out to those who are looking to become a paid blogger and will help you get started.
You should start off by finding sites that offer you free blogs and anyone is allowed to sign up for one. You can if you rather buy a domain name and then import blogging software onto the website. But, if you are looking for something easier just use one of the free blogging services available, for example Blogger is one of the free services available.
Figure out what kind of topic you want to become an expert on or already are and then come up with a name that's going to grab the attention of readers at the same time the title needs to be honest and must relate to the information you will be offering. Once you have done this you can start off simple by introducing yourself to the blogging world with a couple of posts. After you've done that you can start blogging on a regular basis. The more updated that your blog is the more readers you are going to attract.
Once you have gotten use to updating your blog, you should start putting blog ads on your blog. One of the most popular things that people do is to sign up for pay per click ad campaigns and put those ads on their site. The advantage of course to having your own domain with pay per click ads is that you will keep all of the profits from the ads, whereas with a free blog you generally will have to share the pay per click ad money with the company that is giving you the space for your blog.
You can also run what are called contextual ads. Although there are some who hate these ads, other people don't seem to mind at all. What these are though are ads that take certain words in an article and highlight them. Then if the reader puts their cursor over these a small ad will pop up.
Find companies that are looking for new places to put their company ads up at and sell them space on your blog. There are a lot of sites out there that will pay you to run small ads on your blog and these companies will send a monthly check for the advertising.
You can also get sponsored posts. These are posts made by advertisers who have either paid you to put an actual post on your blog or given you some sort of service in exchange. When you use these kinds of advertisers you need to make sure that you let your readers know that the post is a sponsors post and not yours.
