Does it sound crazy to have a marketing strategy in retirement? Are you supposed to have so much money saved up that you really never have to work again?
More importantly, is that true for you?
Well, just in case you’re worried about money for your retirement, think about getting an online business that you can do in your spare time.
Online Businesses Are Cheaper to Start
Because they’re cheaper to start than a traditional business, there are lots of shabby businesses out there. So don’t be one of those. Resolve from the start that whatever you do, you’ll stand for quality. If you come across people who don’t meet those criteria, find others who do. There are tons of people who do good quality work online.
Online Businesses Require Some Technical Skills
About 5-10 years ago, it was almost impossible to work online unless you were a dyed-in-the-wool computer geek. You had to know code, you had to know all kinds of software, and you had to have an insatiable appetite for everything geeky. Nowadays, you don’t have to know everything. Not only is there much better, user-friendly software that does everything imaginable, but there are people for hire who can do the techy stuff for you – people on platforms like Fiverr and Upwork.
Start with Something Easy
Let’s say you’re a health fanatic. You love reading about and trying lots of different diets, supplements, and exercises. To start a business, you don’t need to build your own website, produce your own products, or create fancy how-to exercise videos. You can start really easy by getting an affiliate link.
That just means that you approach someone you admire and ask to become an affiliate. They give you a special link (or links) to their products and services that you can share with people. Anyone clicking on your link will be identified as being referred by you. If those people buy something, you get a commission. You can learn to be an expert at simply driving traffic to someone else’s website, and you could earn hundreds of dollars a month.
Know Your Niche
I’m in the money-making niche, and so are my associates. Not only do we know how to drive traffic to an affiliate link, but in our niche, you can make thousands per month instead of hundreds. You have to know how to find out which people are likely to respond favorably to your advertisements, which contain your embedded affiliate links, or you’ll lose a lot of money. That’s why training is critical.
