There are quite a few ways to make money on the Internet, but most of the time, when you start thinking about the process, you only consider the affiliate marketing, product creation, and auction routes. What about finding honest, steady work that will help pay your bills, supplement your income, or even help you get out of that office job and into your own, work-at-home career?
The truth is that more people than ever are finding the Internet to be an ideal workplace—an opportunity to say “forget it” to the 9–5 grind and start working full-time for yourself. Freelancing is a common practice in countries around the globe. In the United States alone, more than 40 million American workers had at least some reportable freelancing income in 2009. That’s a massive increase from just five years before, and much of it is because of the Internet.
Just think about it. Almost all content creation has gone digital in recent years. Even traditional media like newspapers, TV stations, and radio have turned to the Internet and the bevy of content that can be created by highly specialized providers.
That’s why, in a rapidly evolving economy, it’s very important to know exactly what options you have open to you. If you are a writer, a designer, or a programmer, or just really don’t enjoy your job and know you have creative skills you can offer online, the world of online freelancing may be for you.
