Want to learn the skills to earn online?

Way back in 1998, I sought refuge in Internet. I was desperate to find some way to earn a living. For the first three years, I just browsed and browsed in search of a silver line.

I ended up learning several skills and finally, I earned my first $4 online. That was two years after I started scouring the web.

Even though I learnt useful skills that are required to make money online, I could not make it big. I persisted; I learnt. I compiled tons of resources, which I felt would help me one day.

Then, I entered into the world of HYIP which when expanded says, High Yield Income Potential. This involved money up front. I borrowed and courageously plunged in.

I was lucky and I earned good money. I started helping my friends but not all of them were as lucky as I was.

When the HYIP field started collapsing, God pushed me into the blogosphere. I was a novice in the world of blogging but by then, I have gained some knowledge about Internet Marketing.

I struggled to learn blogging. I tried, panted and failed. I got up and again failed. But this time, I was not wounded. God pushed me to go on. I read, read and read thousands of websites and blogs.

I established contacts with some of the top Internet marketers. I followed them wherever they went.

Slowly, the nuances of blogging knocked at my door. I threw the doors wide opened. Still, not all was rosy. I had to learn everything on my own.

First I learnt blogging through Blogger, a free platform offered by Google. I published my first blog in 2005. Deleted it in 2006 and published again another blog with the help of a Canadian in 2006. Till the year 2008, I was afraid to learn Wordpress blogging platform, that is more versatile than blogger.

I gathered enough courage, bought my first domain for my wordpress blog. The learning curve was real steep. However, with the help of God, I gained sufficient knowledge and today, I maintain 21 blogs and have plans for at least another four blogs.

I started training people who wanted to learn blogging. Only a handful of people came forward. Blogging is a serious business. It involves a lot of learning. Blogging is not for all. But, there is big money for passionate bloggers. No doubt about it.

Many of my contacts have asked me if they could earn online without a website or a blog. They were all interested to do some clerical work. I thought about their request. All the skills that I learnt in my early years can be put into use. The money may not be big at first, but then, which venture can shower you with money, as soon as you start?

There is a law of Universe in which I believe strongly. Quick money will disappear as quickly as it came, probably quicker.

These Internet skills are easy to learn and they will help anyone to work from home. Being able to work at home is very relaxing. Still, just because you are at home does not mean it is all fun and games. You also need skill and luck to make it work for you.

Once you get it rolling though, your home business can be a full-time job or a sideline to supplement your income. This is particularly true when using a computer and the Internet for your home business.

Let me briefly tell you about various easy ways to earn money from the Internet.

There are so many ads out there in the world trying to deter people. How do you know where to go? Those beckoning ads-are they genuine or are they trap? It is difficult to distinguish. I know, because, I have fallen many times.

I have tried so many different work-from-home gimmicks.

A personal guide, who has undergone the failures on behalf of you can render valuable guidance. I am here to guide you. I can help you set up your own online business. In the end, it is all up to you sustain all the ups and downs and still succeed.

What do you require to do these jobs?

Apart from learning how to do these online jobs, you definitely need:

  • Computer with broadband Internet
  • Resources and tools required for these tasks
  • Knowledge about where to find work for these skills
  • Ability to organize your work and resources
  • Basic knowledge of Excel worksheet

How much can you earn?

Don’t expect to earn anything immediately. Once, you learn these skills, you need some practical experience. In addition, you must establish your credentials online as a dependable worker.

I would say you could earn anything from $150 to $500 per month starting from third month onwards. In some cases, the time taken to see the first dollar will be longer or even shorter.

The money and time mentioned above is just a rough estimate. Don’t get glued to it please. It is very important. Earnings are not typical.

What I would do for you?

I will teach you the skills required for:

These are very basic clerical skills that can be quickly mastered and put into use for financial gains.

I will give you all the resources I have.

I will show you where to find work.

I will tell you how to get first credentials without much experience to show.

I will tell you how to maintain your work report.

Can you give me a name for this work at home business?

Yes, you will be learning 75% of SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Are there competitors in this business?

Acute competition! Just do a search in Google or Yahoo! for “SEO India”.

The figure two million search results cannot be taken as very accurate but I would guess there may about 2000 SEO companies in India alone. (I know they are constantly looking for SEO professionals. There is a perennial demand supply gap).

Just for your academic interest, please click on ‘’ that I have shown to above. Study their SEO services (those 8 skills plus some more) and their pricing for each service. If I am right, it will motivate you to learn these skills.

Note: The rate for Indian companies and individuals will be much less.


Who knows, one day, you can start your own professional SEO services. There are more SEO companies in India than anywhere in the world.
