How to Make Money Online at Home, Fast and Free – Part 1

make-money-online

Are there real ways how to make money online from home?

YES, there are a lot of legitimate ways to earn money online. I can prove it that you can make hundreds of dollars online at the comfort of your home.

I’ve been doing it for over three years now. I will show you how I did it and you can get started right away.

Easy Ways to Make Money Online for Free

online-surveysHundreds of people are asking Google for quick ways to make money online. In fact there are close to 300 google searches a month, searching on how to earn money with online surveys. I was one of them 4 years ago.

Perhaps you have already read some articles on how to make money by online surveys. Yes, you can make quick and easy money everyday, but not much. It is only enough to pay your bills and your daily food. You might even need to stay long hours in front of your computer all day just earn enough money.

What if you have your own family or dependents? Then you need to be awake answering surveys 24/7. But you can make money online quick and easy, right?

The point is answering online surveys and clicking ads can earn you money, but it will not make your rich.

What is the Best Way to Make Money Online

In this article series, I will share to you the 2 best ways how I earned thousands of dollars online that can guarantee riches. Although you can earn as much money as you want with these two methods, it requires a lot of hard work, dedication, persistence, desire to succeed, and gratitude (Gratitude brings in more blessings and opportunities).

You have to know your passion or what you love to do, and make money online through your passion. How?

  • Offer it as a service online, or
  • Create an online business that revolves around your passion

You can also do both. In my case, I am working for a company full-time where I perform what I love to do while building my own company on a part-time basis.

Apply the Basic Law of Economics

To make money online, you have to sell something online. No…no…no, you don’t need to be a salesman, you don’t even need to talk to strangers.

The easiest way is to sell your skills or your service to a place where there’s a high of demand of that skill, but low supply of manpower. Do you still remember the basic law of economics?

When there is a high demand, but not enough supply, the price usually goes up. If the supply is overflowing, but less demand, price will surely go down.

If you sell or offer your skills or your services to a place where there is a high demand of work requiring your special skills, but not enough people can do it, then you can demand your pay per hour as long as the client can afford it.

What Skills Can You Offer Online

Determine the type of job you want, your skills or your talents. The internet offers a wide variety of online projects under these categories:

  • Web, Mobile & Software Developmentskills
  • Design & Creative
  • Admin Support
  • Customer Service
  • IT & Networking
  • Writing
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Translation
  • Engineering & Architecture
  • Legal
  • Accounting & Consulting
  • And a lot more

Where to Sell Your Skills and Services

  • Upwork (www.upwork.com)
  • Freelancer (www.freelancer.com)

There are a lot of freelancing websites out there, but these two are best and well known to big companies. Which means there are more companies that trust them, seeking for skilled freelancers everyday. With over 21 million clients and the thousands of jobs that are posted daily, there is definitely a lot of opportunities for you.

Offer Your Special or Unique Skill That Only Few can Do It

Sure you can offer your bids to hundreds of projects that are posted daily. But there is a tough competition from other countries with low cost of living in which they can offer the cheapest bid. There are also bids from experienced freelance who can offer top quality output.

The key thing is to know yourself:

  • Are you knowledgeable on a specific subject that only few can do it?
  • Is there a client looking for a specific type of freelancer only?
  • What else can you offer more for the client?larry-lozada-upwork

To Set an Example, This is How I did It

Living my Life with Mr. Webster

I started working online through Upwork as a general topic writer. Like I said, there is a tough competition if you offer your bids in a project where there are a lot of people who can do better and cheaper than you.filipino-writer

I was luckily hired by a client based in New York who was looking for a writer from the Philippines. I am being paid cheaply but I’m delivering high quality output. It’s okay since I am still building my profile.

Moving Forward with George Soros

Then I became a Forex writer with much higher pay. With my forex trading knowledge that I learned from Chris Capre and Haji Warithu, I was able to deliver quality Forex educational articles and a Forex market daily analysis to my Spanish client – Tradimo.

Although any author could write Forex articles, only few could write genuine and in depth educational articles and market analysis.forex-trading-upwork

Not only that, I was also hired to write Forex tweets. I send a hundred tweets a day about my analysis of the Forex market. I was also hired to reply the comments of customers and potential customers of a US based Forex fund company.

Bill Gates Offered a Stress-free World

Then I was bored watching the Forex charts, so I ventured to the world of Microsoft Excel offering data analysis and macro programming.mt4

To link the gap between Forex and Microsoft Excel programming, I signed a contract from a company based in Dallas, Texas to program an automated Forex strategy back-testing tools using Microsoft Excel.

It was in 2015 when BidEnergy Australia noticed my unique skills and offered me something that only few can have it online. Today, I’m happily working with BidEnergy while running a part time business that has the potential to give me a monthly passive income.

It is Hardwork and Gratitude, not Luck

Larry, you are lucky because you have those special skills that only few can offer it online.

That’s the key to success. Offer your amazing and in demand skill that only few can do it. If you don’t have one or if you do have but you’re not good at it, there’s a lot of free tutorials that you can find online. That’s how I did it.

Working through Freelancer can open more rewarding opportunities for you. In fact, you can find great companies inside Freelancer. If they’re impressed with your work attitude and performance, you have the opportunity to be hired as a remote contractor, which is very rewarding.

Perks of Selling your Skills and Services Online

Freelancing online does involve risks, but the rewards are far more superior. It offers greater flexibility and autonomy than a salaried job.

  • You can choose the client and the types of project you want to work with. You are free to operate on your own terms, at your own hours and at the rates that you established.
  • No more traffic jams on the way to work and no more queuing up for a ride home.
  • You can work from home or from a cafe, or from wherever. You can spend more time with your children, or family. You can steal moments to relax and do the things you love.
  • If you want to charge more to your client, you can do it.
  • You can save a lot of money too. No travel costs, no need for smart work clothes or daily bought lunches.

And the best thing that you can do as a freelancer?

You can build your online business part-time while working for your clients full-time.

And how to do this?

  2. Hi Larry,

    Thanks for sharing this. I love how you lay things out in an easy-to-read format. You explain thing rather well and down to earth. Anyone can understand. I especially like how you use a personal examples. What I especially like is that you make the point that it requires work. Many people want get-rich-quick schemes, so they keep looking and looking and miss countless real opportunities.

    1. Hi Kevon,

      Thank you for visiting my site. I used personal examples on posts in order to convince visitors that this is workable. And if I was able to do it successfully, you can do it too.

      You are right that many people out there are looking for online get rich quick schemes. As a result they are victimized by scams. There are countless real opportunities to make money from home online but it needs work and dedication.

      Cheers,

  3. Larry,

    It is a very nice and informative articles. My husband is a graphic designer. I think he can make this article as a reference. Like you said that if you could make money while at home and be with your family is better than tied up by inflexible working time and struggle with traffic.

    Thanks

    1. Hi Erna,

      Thank you for stopping by. Graphic designers have amazing opportunities to make money online from home. They are in demand, a lot of clients are posting graphic designing contracts every single day. If your husband have done similar projects in the past, he can use it as a reference in bidding projects and can request higher rates from clients.

      Regards,
      Larry

  4. Hi Larry,

    Thank you for a very informative article. I’ve never considered freelancing as a means of detaching form a traditional 8-hours work. Now I have to do a bit of research to see if I am able to offer some demanded skill or knowledge:) Looking forward to part 2.

    Thanks again,
    Marek

    1. Hey Marek,

      Thank you for reading my article. You may need to sign up for free account at Upwork or Freelancer to be able to have a look at the opportunities waiting for you.

      Part 2 of my article would be about running an online business while working as a freelancer. It’s purely about how to make money online at home.

      Regards,
      Larry

  5. You have definitely been out in the trenches getting things done. A true example of what hard work and perseverance can do, if you just apply for yourself. I love reading about successful people. It inspires!!! Keep up the great work.

  6. Hello Larry,

    Your post is very informative for anyone who wants to get started with freelancing. I used to work with mturk.com which is an Amazon site. Your article should serve as a motivation to those who want to get started.

    Thank you for the wonderful information.
