Can you homeschool and make money from home? Absolutely. When the internet became prevalent over 10 years ago, it opened a door wide open for people to bring in a significant income from home. If you want to homeschool and make money from home, there is not better time. With a few precautions, based on my 2 years of making no money online, you can quickly be on your way to a more financially secure future.

I am into my third year of internet marketing, and I must say, my first 2 years were a complete flop. I spent hours online trying to learn as much as I could. I followed the Guru's advice and had no success. Of course, now I know the reason why. I never wanted to spend much money to be coached and so I had to learn everything myself. While many people said it was possible, I was so ignorant; I didn't know what I didn't know.

As a homeschool mom of 5 kids, with another on the way, I really wanted something I could do on my computer. When I was done working, I wanted to be able to shut my laptop and walk away. No accounting, no inventory, no packaging, etc. . .

Some of the things I tried:

Paid Surveys

Ebay Products

Pay-Per-Click

Adwords

Writing - Freelance Jobs

Mystery Shopping

Virtual Assistants

Reading Ads

Stuffing Envelopes

Creating/Selling Personal Products

None of these worked for me. I will admit that I made some money with them, but it was either so little for the amount of work I put in or I was spending more money than I made.

Why am I Writing This Article?

After 2 years, I finally found a way to homeschool and make money online. It was through selling products. The important thing to know is that it doesn't matter what the product is, everyone is shopping for something. The important thing is how you sell it.

How People Buy Online

Most people do one of two things when they are going to make a purchase online. They either go directly to the website and purchase the exact product they are looking for, or they do a search on a search engine, such as Google.

This is where you have the chance to sell your product. Most people only look at the first page of Google, so that is where you need to be, in the top 10. Now, while this may sound impossible, it is actually very do-able". It takes some market strategy, almost like playing a game. It is called article marketing.

Why share this information?

I know, as a homeschool mom, that making money isn't just for fun. For many of us it is a necessity. In my first month with article marketing, I made about $250. Now that may not sound like a lot, because I worked hard that first month, but from there things started to skyrocket. They can for you, too. That is my motivation, to let everyone know that you can homeschool and make money, too, without sacrificing your family.

Now, writing articles is not for everyone, and finding the inspiration can become tedious after a while. There is little point buying the cheap ‘off the shelf’ articles as you will find with a CopyScape check that there are hundreds of copies out there. (CopyScape looks for other instances of the same text on the Internet. ) If you do buy, make sure you rewrite them to make them different.

Recently, a new product has come on the market that has certainly changed my opinion of machine generated articles, and means that I can get articles out in minutes with links to my products and web pages. This is the first such product that does what it says, but it's not cheap so you need to balance what you have time to do with it against that. Although not cheap, it can work out at just 15 cents per article if used to capacity! Therefore, I recommend you check out Article Builder by CLICKING HERE .

If, on the other hand, you just want inspiration and to fill in the blanks, you will find a lot of article templates in many different niches with Jiffy Articles which you can find by CLICKING HERE . It's cheaper, but you do have to do more work. Or, you could just keep writing yourself if you enjoy it! Good luck!
