• Making Money Online at Home Free Through Marketing
In this second part of the article, we are going to see 5 ways to make money online at home free through marketing by becoming a telemarketer, doing affiliate marketing, engaging in network marketing, starting an ebay business, and becoming a social marketing consultant.
Many large companies outsource their cold-calling marketing campaigns to third parties who in turn hire home-based workers to place the calls.
This work-from-home job calls for certain qualities and skills, such as:
– the art of salesmanship,
– a clear pleasant voice and personality,
– ability to state your business briefly, and
– a really thick skin—you’ll come up against refusal and even outright hostility.
But if you’re up to the task, you’ll find telemarketing a legitimate way to make money online at home. Hirers typically pay by the hour, and they may also give you incentives and commission based on your performance.

7. Affiliate Marketing
If you are thinking of how to make money online at home for free, the greatest way could be affiliate marketing (See Why affiliate marketing is your best route to success online) if you have sales experience and/or the desire to learn.
This very site is built for doing affiliate marketing, with the main product being the affiliate training (which I followed to create it) offered by Wealthy Affiliate and its related product like Jaaxy research tool on which I depend for all my keyword research needs.
Some of the wonderful things about affiliate marketing are that you need not carry inventory, worry about handling sales, shipping, billing or even offer customer support. Instead you concentrate on selling third party products or services for a commission.
You may sell without a website. But it is advisable you set up stores and/or build websites on which you display the products and services. You may even consider having a topical Facebook page or the other social media sites where you post your affiliate offers and invite your friends to join it.
An affiliate network such as Affiliate Window is another good place to check. You can browse the offers on their blog or the merchant listings for what you’ll be passionate about promoting.
You can sign up free as affiliate at a mega-site such as Amazon.com, where you can choose from more than a million products, including gift cards or computers and get commissions of up to 25 percent.
ClickBank (A Review: Is ClickBank Scam or Legit?) is the largest affiliate-marketing network retailer for digital lifestyle products like eBooks, software and membership sites in different categories. Commissions here can go as high as 75 percent for over 50,000 products.
As you see, you can promote online stores to products on the ClickBank platform (CBProAds), offer online affiliate courses (Wealthy affiliate), sell marketing tools (Upviral and Adplotter), suggest sites to use to promote products on ClickBank (Which third party site should you use to promote CB), show people tools for website creation (Would getting a website do you any good), Diet programs (Half-way diet), and offer reviews of products and services (Reviews) and thousands of other things you can possibly think of.
When someone buys any of the products or services, you get paid.
You can even monetize your blog with contextual ads (Google Adsense, <strong>Chitika or bidvertiser)
But be warned that setting up an online store or running an affiliate marketing website or blog require a lot of work and some time to get things up and running. But there are many resources for you to learn to upgrade your skills and enrich your experience to make money online at home for free.
8. Network Marketing
This is another name for Multi-Level Marketing (MLM).
The Network marketing model allows you 2 easy ways to make money online at home:
– making a commission by selling products and
– recruiting other members from whose sales you also make commision.
Some people don’t like MLM, mistaking it for the illegal pyramid scheme. Unlike pyramid schemes, MLM has an end goal which is a customer buying a product or service of value. And many respectable people are making a decent living from it.
Another common wrong impression is that people view MLM as a ‘get rich quick’ scheme. No! You will have to work hard to make money here even if the growth of social media has made it easier for network marketers (or multi-level marketers) to recruit lots of people to build huge downlines.

9. Start an eBay Business
Let’s begin with the flip side of eBay. http://www.ebay.com/ Profit margins can be thin selling on the platform. However, the over one million eBay businesses make it an option worth considering.
Another positive side of eBay is that it comes handy when you want to get rid of the junk cluttering your garage for some money. You can therefore use eBay’s online auctions to turn that red and white dress you had bought for Valentine’s Day (which you wouldn’t need until a year later when it might have long gone out of fashion) into hard cash.
Are you like a bullish trader on the Stock Market who can guess that a particular stock is going to appreciate and buys now to sell later at profit? If you are good at being able to read trends and predict what will be lucrative ahead of the market and aren’t afraid to take risks, then you can buy early in bulk and sell later on when the fad hits.
Maybe what you need are more tips on selling on eBay? Then read this guide.
Do you know that some people are eager to get rid of their stuff but are too busy to do so themselves? This offers you a way to make money online at home by become an online reseller and earn large sums of money by buying from them and selling items online.
To do so you need 2 indispensable ingredients: experience selling goods through auctions on eBay and the ability to promote your services.
Now, your worry may be how to determine the price of the goods you sell. You simply do it by the market and the value of items you sell. While some sellers charge a flat per-item fee (often $5 to $25), others take a percentage (20 percent to 40 percent) of total sales.
Whatever way you charge, reselling on eBay and other sites could become a lucrative full-time job, especially if you do a large enough volume of business.
