Forex Trading – An Interesting Way to Make Money

My goal with this blog is to turn it into a place where people can get information about different ways to make money online or in the real world. The way we make a living is changing, but too few people realize that. If you want to survive, you must stop thinking of yourself as an employee and start considering yourself to be an independent contractor. You can either sell your skills and time to a company (an employer) or use them to cobble together sources of income to fund the life you want to live.

In this article, I’m going to talk a little bit about making money with investments, and with forex trading in particular. Admittedly, I’m not very good with investing, so this article will only get you started. You are better off having someone with a good amount of experience in this field mentor you in how to make money with forex trading.

The Basics of Making Money with Advertising

One of the most popular shows on television is Mad Men which chronicles the drama between Don Draper and friends as they try to make money with advertising between marital infidelities and interpersonal conflicts. It’s not my kind of show. I prefer science fiction (Warehouse 13) and crime dramas (The Closer), so I’ve only watched it maybe twice. But I started thinking the other day about the show’s setting, a 1960’s ad agency, and how many people are trying to make money online in this competitive field.

There are a two ways to make money with Internet advertising: as the creator of advertising campaigns (which is a service) or by selling ad space (which is a product). In this blog post, I will be talking about the latter because it’s the income opportunity I see most people struggling with.

It seems simple enough to make money with website advertising, at least in theory. You create a website, blog, or online newsletter and then find people or companies willing to pay to advertise on it. Like so many things in life, however, the application of the idea is much more complex. If you are currently trying to earn a paycheck this way or are thinking about it, here are the basics of generating an income selling Internet advertising.

‘Tis the Season to Earn Extra Money Online

So a few days ago, I poked my head out of the digital cloud and realized – it’s November!

Are you kidding me?

I swear on a box of chocolates, the last time I looked at the calendar, it was January. I can’t believe the holiday season is already upon us. But now that it is, it’s time to get to work. If you have been looking for a way to earn extra money from home, tapping into the holiday shopping spirit is a good way to go about it.

We are entering the biggest shopping season of the year. Some statistics I saw earlier stated that 38% of people surveyed have already started their holiday shopping. Sure the economy sucks and jobs are scarce. But none of that doesn’t matters because people will find a way to get presents under the Christmas tree, even if they have to put things on layaway to do it.

And not everyone is broke. You may have tumbleweeds blowing through your checking account, but some people do have money and can afford to purchase the hot toys and electronics flooding the market. These are the people you need to look at for inspiration on how to earn extra money this holiday season.
