Stop Wasting Time, Start Making Money Online
Are you looking to start making money online?
Please, read this article carefully. It is a short one because I do not want to overwhelm you with long grammar today. In this article, I shared how I started as a webmaster.
I knew the internet had so much to offer right from my high school days, but I didn’t know how to make the most use of it for financial gains. Over time – what I did with my laptop and smartphones – which were often gifts from family and friends, was to browse through the social networks, looking for gossip about celebrities and enriching bloggers who were posting leads to make a living.
Funnily as jobless as I was, I spent the average of $50 every month on data and internet services for nothing. I must confess I had both good and bad experiences with some of the people I met on the social networks; while some became good friends, I also wished I could rewind the hands of time so that I will reject the friend request from some. I also realized that if you don’t have any goal or ambition you want to achieve using the social media, you will end up grooming the assassin that will blow off the head of your time by yourself. So, I expect you to understand that in all the years I surfed the internet browsing through the social networks, I indeed didn’t have time as I assassinated it ignorantly by myself on daily basis.
If I had knew I could make money online, I would have gone farther than I have gone now.
Therefore, next time a young person who is lost on the screen of a Smartphone says to you, “I don’t have time!” Just know he is a member of the “Time assassins’ club” which means, he needs help. Yes, real help! That was what I got from a friend who introduced me to the concept of the gig economy. He said to me, “do you know you can become a freelancer, working from the comfort of your bedroom for people all over the world, and getting paid in US dollars?” Doubting him, I asked him how, and what work will I be doing? You can become a creative writer, concept developer, and a brand identity service provider, he replied. Wow! When can I start? I screamed. You can start now with your….. pointing at the smartphone in my hand. Go to Fiverr.com.
Where to Start Making Money Online
There is one impression that I wish I could just erase from the minds of young people. That idea that one must be fraudlent to make money online. It is not true.
Of course, a lot of people have gone to jail for defrauding people on the internet.
To genuinly make a living online, you need to develop a skill and be ready to work very hard with your skill.
What You Can do to Make Money Online
As a beginner from Nigeria, I started off at Fiverr. Fiverr is where you turn your passion into cash and put your ideas in black and white. On Fiverr, your success depends solely on your ability to pitch your skill to your prospective clients and the quality of the delivered job. My first ever order on Fiverr was an elevator pitch for a client somewhere in the New York City, which means, you can work from anywhere on Fiverr.
It was also the first 5-star rating that I got on my review; this also means that I am a good elevator pitch creator. All thanks to my ability to share what’s on my mind and tell the story of my day daily on the social networks. This finally means, I actually unknowingly sharpened my creative and short story writing skills on social media, thereby confirming Marthe Troly-Curtin’s affirmation that the “Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”
While it was difficult to get started when I started, now, there are more options even for beginners. You can become a freelance writer, read more about the freelance writing jobs for beginners here.
