It has been my quest to figure out how to make money from home to augment my disability pay. I have been really intrigued by all the options. From selling books to information, there is a plethora of opportunities out there. It is being discerning as to which truly works for you. And insuring it is a real opportunity!

There is also the warning that comes with all of these, if they are asking outrageous amounts of upfront money, you might want to consider looking elsewhere. If they are asking for a monthly fee that is a reasonable amount, it is something I always consider.

Because, if we had a brick and mortar store we would have to pay all the overhead fees of rent, electricity and stocking of products, employees, insurance and the list is endless.

And paying a monthly fee or yearly memberships is reasonable if it provides the necessary tools to do business. Just make sure it is within your own sense of affordability.

Deciding to do an online business mean that you are ready to tackle this next new journey with determination and focus.

My personal favorite for online marketing is Wealthy Affiliate. You can try it out for free! It gives you 25 websites, unlimited amount of support and training. And a community that is always at the ready to help. It is a long term true and very, real vehicle to success, for building your own business.

I have been so impressed by the level of education provided. It is a step by step program. when you follow the training, it will bring you ongoing success. It is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It is an honest and definitive way to build a future for you. If you really want to be an online marketer, this is a fabulous vehicle.

In conclusion, whatever you want is truly out there. Finding what you can count on is the key. And not being scammed!

Etsy is really amazing and it is also quite populated. Finding a way to really bring your shop forefront is going to be a challenge. In other words getting the amount of exposure you really need will be a full time job. Also, as an artist, I know how problematic it is to be the only one who is doing production, shipping and fulfillment. So if you are willing to create the product, ready it for shipping, do fulfillment and constantly market, then do try Etsy.

eBay is best used if you have products you need to sell quickly. But then again, it means you are willing to stock and do fulfillment. Meaning, you buy product and then have to be responsible for shipping and returns. That can be a headache and very time-consuming. At least to me.

Although I have personally not used Shopify, I have heard a mix of reviews.

Amazon Affiliate program is wonderful access to billions of customers. In order to sell any products though you must first have a website. So unless you are willing to dish up more money for hosting, education and social media plugins, it is not a turn key opportunity. Other Affiliate programs actually give higher referral fees. Because it is Amazon, the largest retailer on the planet, I am guessing the low percentage is based purely on accessing volume.
