How to Make Money Online at a Home in the Country

Isolated From Civilization and Still Bringing in an Online Income. Are you looking for a way on how to make money online at a home in the country as I do? The one way that I have manages to bring in an income from the Internet is by making King and Queen size pillowcases and selling them on our local auction site, Trademe.

I have always looked at ways of making money online this is the first to have succeeded in giving me a sustainable income to be able to quit my day job and concentrate on growing my income further.

In the Beginning

Over the years I had looked into all sorts of ways to make money online at home in my pj’s, year I know, pretty lazy. But, it was the concept I was looking for, not the pajamas. In my search, I found things like drop shipping, wholesaling,  eBay, PLR & MRR etc, but these things were all too foreign to me. I knew that I needed to look into these things, do a bit of homework, but everywhere I looked they ALL wanted my money… I laughed, I had none and that is why I was looking at ways on how to make how to make money online at a home

What I did Buy, Try and Why?

Obviously, the price was a key factor. Also value for money. What was I getting as sometimes you get exactly what you pay for? SO initially I was looking for products I could sell on TradeMe. But they are very strict with a lot of their policies. So for starters, I could not sell eBooks or rewriteable CD’s, so all the PLR and MRR products were useless for here. I started with Hypnosis CD’s, when all of a sudden my auctions got pulled, they charged me to do so and I was in the red with no products to sell and a heap of CD’s I had made, as they were selling well, and I had nowhere to sell them.

Lesson learned! Check your Terms and Conditions before you get carried away with stocking up of a product you are unable to market.

Wholesale or Dropship

Then, through Trademe I was looking for wholesale items. It was then that I found Salehoo. I had faith in the fact that this man who created it was from New Zealand, and if he could do it then so could I. His membership was affordable (this was a few years ago) so I joined. Lifetime membership, for a one off fee how could I go wrong. It was a ridiculously low price of about $37usd.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t a channel I didn’t feel confident int and I really needed to buy the stock to have on hand, or drop ship. I did not have the funds for buying and I was not confident in drop shipping as it was my reputation with not seeing a product. I started the training and as it did not harvest me an income, I soon moved on to looking into other ideas, always knowing I had this membership to fall back on., if an when my confidence grew to try these methods.

Resell Rights Products

I also came across Surefire Wealth, I started with a free membership, but soon upgraded when they too had a lifetime Gold membership (which was the highest back then) for a relatively small fee. This gave me access to PLR and MMR products that I could give way and sell in their current form to get some mailing lists etc from my own website. Keep 100% of the profit, so I thought, and if only it was that easy!

Internet Marketing Communities/Universities

Chris Farrell Membership was next. I thought I would learn how to put all of this into perspective. and  I kinda did, but crikey, his membership, put AWeber converted from NZD, gosh that was a lot for monthly payments. Especially when I was not getting anything in return, like they say you will.

Next was Wealthy Affiliate my #1 Recommendation for learning how to make money online. No hype, no get rich quick scheme and a spam and scam, free environment. Which promises to give you the tools and information to succeed, the rest is up to you… Just like the real world, like duh!

I am not too sure what people expect. An instant get rich quick walk-through? An elevator to the top floor without putting in any money or effort? Well, if it was that easy, then we would all be doing it!How to Make Money Online at a Home

  1. Pillow cases, who woulda thunk it? Wow, what an interesting focus, I’ll have to dig in a bit and learn more about your offerings! I remember you talking about Tradme, I assume it’s kind of like Etsy? So glad you found both a hands on and an online business focus.

    I also love Wealthy Affiliate. The training and support can be applied to any business, which is awesome! Thanks again for putting together such an awesome post. I love your that you add your personal wisdom based on your own online experiences!



    • Good morning Joy and thank you,

      In NZ we have Trademe which is like eBaby and Felt which is like Etsy. I am a comfort zone sort of girl and like Trademe for its consistency at this stage. I seem to be ALL experience prior to Wealthy Affiliate and I am now learning on how to take my business to the next level and create one which is a little more passive as I get older and want to see the world.

      When all this is set up, I will be sharing my experiences from around the world. In the meantime, it is sewing, creating, writing and fine-tuning websites 🙂

      Thank you for your kind words.

  2. Great insights in starting a home base business! Who wouldn’t like to work from home in the PJs and be there to see the kids grow up?
    Thank you for sharing your experience, I think you have shown how it can sometimes be a trial and error to success. Like my grandma used to say: Nothing worth having comes easy!

    • I know right? Pj’s at least once a week seems to be happening around here, but I am totally enjoying my relaxed workspace/lifestyle. I am pleased you can relate 🙂 You know, I have actually enjoyed the trial and error throughout my journey and it has taught me what I know today, without breaking the bank. Lifes’ experiences are priceless and are there to learn and grow from, but somehow I can still see me being the successful one lounging around in my Pj’s.

      And, your Grandma is full of wisdom, as was mine. Much to be learned from their generation. Thank you for stopping by and sharing.

      All the best with your success.
