Start Here!

If you are new to this site and just searching for information on how to begin your journey to online work, you’ve come to the right place. This page provides a perfect jump-start to discovering your next big idea and becoming part and parcel of the online community – people who work, network, and achieve great dreams online from the remotest parts of the world.  

When you’re just starting off, things may seem confusing, especially with the myriad of options available online. It’s difficult to tell what works, what doesn’t, and what is just a scam. Actually, I fell into many scams on the onset, and I almost gave up. So, before you fall into the same trap, the trick is to stay off any online opportunity that promises quick money without real work. Just like every other job, you’ve got to labor if you want to eat! The only beauty with online work is that you schedule your own working hours and do everything from the comfort of your home.

Over the past 8 years, I’ve researched extensively about the best genuine ways to make money online and the most legitimate companies that offer freelance work or remote jobs online. The opportunities are enormous and it doesn’t matter if you’re a college student, a work-at-home mom, or a professional looking to supplement his/her earnings and eventually fire the boss.

Having said that, I have put together this list of comprehensive guides that should help you narrow down your choices and take the next step in your journey to making money online. Look around and feel free to ask questions in the comment box. I will be more than glad to guide you through.

Which Online Business Do You Like?

Since I began my online journey in 2008, I have done several online ventures. I started as a freelance writer before graduating to an affiliate marketer with various platforms like Amazon, E-bay, and Walmart. If you’re just getting started, I would suggest you learn your options and narrow down to something that interests you. If you love dogs, you can enjoy blogging about dog species, dog training, and all sorts of dog care products and accessories. While at it, sign up with affiliate programs like Amazon Services LLC Associates Program and earn from commissions whenever someone clicks on a link on your site and makes a purchase on Amazon. Below are my best options when it comes to making money working from home.

  1. Article Writing Online
  2. Data Entry Jobs
  3. Transcription Jobs Online
  4. Passive Income Online
  5. Money Saving Tips
  6. Make Money Blogging
  7. Build a Niche Site
  8. Build an FBA Business

My Journey…

My name is Evans Crystal, a family man (1 son and 2 daughters) and a passionate freelancer. I started blogging after almost 8 years of research and “trials and errors” on various online business ideas and job opportunities. Some worked and some were a total flop. So, I thought it wise to blog about what I do and how I make my living online. Perhaps that could motivate someone to take a step and benefit from the useful resources that I share here.

So, I started my online journey in 2008 writing article on Upwork. I could earn about $10 for a 500-word article, which wasn’t that bad, but the process of bidding for jobs and landing projects was a little painful. I kept my faith and improved on my skills to attract better-paying clients, which I did and I have retained a few clients to date.

I learned about creating niche websites in 2010 and dived into the opportunity. Being a newbie in the field and totally clueless about choosing the right niche and doing keyword research correctly, I didn’t make significant success. But, after years of research and continuous learning, I discovered something about working on less competitive keywords with substantial search volumes, something I didn’t do with my first site.

I launched my second niche site in 2013 and it has made impressive strides, earning about triple my previous salary. And my latest site, Leisurefishers.com is in line with my passion, so I can run it seamlessly into retirement. Oops! I forgot to mention that I decided to quit my job in 2018 to focus on my online businesses. Additionally, I have expanded into selling products through Amazon FBA, another lucrative field that I will share with you.

Other than that, I do enjoy watching and playing soccer – I think I like the playing part more! I do make time to play at least twice a week to have fun, keep fit, and just take a break from my laptop and experience some fresh outdoors.
