Make Money from Home Writing Elliptical Reviews: You Can Do It, Too
I’ve quit my job to take care of my kids. It was not an easy decision to make but it’s the one I’ve never regretted, not even for a single moment. You’ve all seen what goes on in the world today and what today’s kids are capable of, in a negative sense. In my opinion, it’s mostly due to the fact that parents don’t spend enough time with their kids for one reason or another, to teach them right from wrong and how to become better people. I wanted the best for my kids, and to watch them grow up to be the best they can be, and in order to do that, I had to quit my job and become a stay-at-home mom.
The only flaw in my plan was the fact that it made my husband the sole breadwinner of the family. The money I made was decent, and we would surely miss it. So, after a couple of months trying to get used to the reduced budget, I figured it wouldn’t work in the long run, so I needed to take a more proactive approach.
Opportunities Online – Something Different
Obviously, I couldn’t leave home, because that would kind of defeat the whole purpose of staying at home and taking care of the family, so I would need to work from home. I browsed the internet and to my disappointment most of the jobs offered there were for software developers and web designers. Sadly, I’m not either of those.
But, I remembered that a friend of mine from work started a business on the side with her husband. She started a review website called Elliptical Machine Advice.com where she posted reviews of elliptical machines and lots of information about these popular trainers. The best thing about it was, she didn’t even have to invest any money into the equipment, seeing as she didn’t stock any, being an Amazon affiliate. It is a growing way to make money online and something a little different. You can get paid a commission for sending people to Amazon, if they buy something.
Truth be told, I didn’t know much about that kind of exercise equipment, which made me even more frustrated. Luckily my friend assured me that she knew nothing about it as well at first but there was plenty of info to be found on almost anything on the web. She gave me a crash course on selecting topics to target and how to get started. It is really interesting and not too technical – although there is a lot of work to do if you want to be successful.
Feeling more courageous, I decided to give it a shot and so I started a couple of blogs and websites myself. It took me a while to get a hang of the writing, but after a few weeks I could churn out plenty of articles in no time.
The money wasn’t much at first. In fact there wasn’t any, since I’ve decided to avoid putting up ads on my blog at first, which effectively killed my chance of making any money off of it, but I had a plan. I would hold off on advertising until I acquired a sufficient number of regular daily visitors, hoping they wouldn’t run once I finally introduced the ads. Luckily, they didn’t. Even better, I started making some money right away, and it couldn’t have come at a better time, since our home budget was spread a little thinner each month.
Writing articles for my blogs only takes a few hours every day, which leaves plenty of time for my kids and my husband. If you’re in a similar situation to mine – give it a shot, it might just be the best decision you’ve ever made. I don’t expect to get rich anytime soon but it is a welcome addition to our household income.
