The Web, in fact, offers many opportunities to work from home and in the next few lines I will talk about some of them, such as the possibility of working through a blog or a website, an e-commerce, offering yourself as a freelancer, working as programmer. or even as a remote employee.
So are you ready to start? Yeah? Brilliant! However, before we begin, I would like to warn you about pseudo “job” offers that promise quick and easy earnings. Remember that working online is still a job: to take home a salary, therefore, you will have to commit and spend time on your profession, as it should be! With that being said, I’d say we can really get started! Take a look at the various online job opportunities listed below, try the one that seems most suitable for you and your skills, and you’ll see that with a makeshift fit you can make your dream come true. I wish you good reading and I wish you all good luck!
Work online with a blog or website
One of the first “roads” you may consider going through work online It’s of Open a blog or website. In order to transform a web space into an opportunity to earn money, therefore, into a job in all respects, it is necessary to have the right business idea, select a market where there are no already established realities and, what is fundamentally important, be willing to spend as much time taking care of the content that will be published online.
Naturally, by opening a web space, earnings will not be generated automatically simply by following the tricks that I mentioned to you above: to monetize a blog or a website, in fact, you must have a lot of patience and perseverance from the first fruits of your labor. They are usually collected after the first year of work.
But how exactly does a blog or website generate income? This is a question that I am asked very frequently, since I also work through the blog that bears my last name ( ..Item in fact!). If we want to simplify it, a relevant component of the earnings of a web space comes from advertising revenue coming from adding banners after signing up for services like Google Adsense. However, as you can imagine, to make money from advertising you need to generate high traffic as the revenue will be proportional to the number of unique visitors that will go to your blog/website.
Another source of income is membership in affiliate programs, like the one from Amazon (which I told you about in detail in another tutorial). In this case, earnings consist of sales generated through the inclusion of Sponsored links within the content published on its web space. If you talk about recipes on your blog, for example, you can link to a planetary or electric oven that can be bought on Amazon, and if readers buy it through your link, you’ll receive a fee from the e-commerce site (as long as they the product is purchased within 24 hours without going through other websites).
A third component of income could be derived from the so-called special projects – consulting, interviews, invitations to industry events that include the topics covered on your web space, advertising campaigns and, in general, “transversal” activities to those of your site, which are generally offered to those who have achieved a notable degree of notoriety on the Web and has established himself as an expert in his field.
Do you want more information on how to make money with a website? In this case, I suggest that you read not only the tutorial I just linked, but also consider purchasing “The method of” (Published by Mondadori Electa): a book written by me in which I tell my story as an entrepreneur digital and I also reveal some “tricks of the trade” that can help those, like you, who want to try building an online business.
Working online with an e-commerce

There are many services through which you can create an online store: you can rely, for example, on blooming, OneMinuteSite or similar services for the creation of an online store; a web space appears and customize it using a CMS as WordPress, prestashop either Joomla or, again, exploit the popularity of established platforms, such as Amazon and eBay to open your personal “window” through them.
If the topic interests you and you want to learn more about it, I suggest you read the guide in which I explain in detail how to open an e-commerce through the solutions that I mentioned above.

Work online as a programmer

In Europe (and in Italy in particular), there is a high demand for these professionals (as the demand far exceeds the supply), which makes this job even more interesting: if you have specific skills in the use of several languages programming (ex. C, Java, etc.) and if you already have a portfolio full of projects you’ve completed, chances are you can easily beat the competition and aim for some pretty high compensation.

Working online as a YouTuber
Do you like to make videos and do not have any obstacles to be in front of a lens? In that case, you can try work online as a youtuber. To do this, you must first open a youtube channel (if you have not already done so, read the guide where I explain how to proceed) and try to win through the YouTube Partner Program which channels with at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of total views in the last year or, again, they can join affiliate network.
Since revenue on YouTube is mainly derived from advertising (as is the case with blogs and websites), it is necessary to generate a large number of views to make significant profits, which requires a lot of time and effort.

Work online as a remote employee
Already work for a company, but have no intention of being laid off to work from home? And who said you have to? If you want, you can try asking your employer to give you the opportunity to work remotely (at least a few days a week and as long as this possibility is compatible with your profession).
To try to “convince” him, perhaps I could explain to him some advantages that the company could have in giving him the opportunity to work remotely: in fact, it has been proven that employees who are offered the possibility of working from home tend to be more productive Of those who work in the office as they avoid the stress derived from travel, they can enjoy their own cozy atmosphere during working hours and manage their commitments with flexibility. Of course, it will be up to your boss to decide whether to give you the opportunity to work from home or not, but, as they say in these cases, he tries not to harm!
If you are a freelancer, on the other hand, everything is much simpler since you are the “boss” of yourself: depending on your needs, you can in fact decide to work from home on certain days of the week or on a stable basis (saving hence the rent for your office).
