Machel Montana is the king of feting “like ah boss”. His hit single “Like Ah Boss” says it all.

How would you feel if I told you that there’s a way for you to make money online so that you can work from home? Excited? Relieved? Eager to learn more? Online careers generate trillions of dollars in revenue annually. Not millions, TRILLIONS! This fact is enough ammunition to prove that delving into the online job market is worth a shot.

There are 3 key categories of online jobs: online trading, affiliate marketing, and online freelancing. Succeeding in one or a combination of these fields takes determination and focus. It doesn’t happen overnight. However, with great effort and a willingness to stick with it you can establish a full-time online business and become your own boss.

Online Trading

Online trading is the riskiest of all 3 options. It’s more than just clicking buttons and guessing the best trades. Money is at stake. You can win big, but you can also lose big. Therefore, it’s important to get it right. Consistent practice and perfecting of strategies is crucial. Additionally, you have to keep abreast of global current affairs since they affect financial markets.   If you have good analytical skills and medium risk tolerance, online trading may be the right fit for you. Follow the strategies outlined in this article to get started and you’ll be able to confidently trade within 12 to 18 months.

Affiliate Marketing

Simply put, affiliate marketing occurs when companies pay people to refer new customers. Avon representatives are the most common affiliate marketers. William J. Tobin, owner of PC Flowers and Gifts, formalized the concept of affiliate marketing in 1989. The concept has grown since then and become a full-fledged online industry.

Rakuten Marketing reports that the affiliate marketing industry is expected to grow to 6.8 billion dollars over the next 5 years. AM Navigator further states that affiliate marketing was the most desired skill in 2015.  If you can sell a pen to a monkey, affiliate marketing may be your calling.
