Are you a woman over 50? If so, you may feel like the chance for starting a new career has passed you by, especially if you have taken time out to bring up a family. This doesn't have to be the case with an online money-making home business. Making money online comes with a huge advantage-- you will never need to be interviewed by someone half of your age and you can use your valuable life experience and knowledge to make a good income on the internet.
Profiting From Your Life Experience
You cannot have come this far in your life without gaining some experience in an area that other people will be keen to learn about. If you are a mom you will have learned all kinds of things that new parents will want to know. Maybe you home-schooled your children or helped out with their school events and fundraising. Perhaps you are a great cook and could pass on your recipes. Have you participated in any sports or activities recently or in the past? Possibly you are an artist, amateur photographer, or make craft items as a hobby. These are all things that people search for information about every day.
Revenue Sharing Websites
One way of turning your knowledge and experiences into a money-making home based business is by writing short articles for revenue sharing sites. There are several types of these websites on the internet that will allow you to publish your writing, how-to articles, recipes, hints and tips. The most basic type of these revenue sharing sites will just publish your articles, add AdSense advertisements and then share the advertising income with you.
There are some websites that provide additional money-making potential by allowing in addition to the AdSense, advertising on your site with products (i.e. amazon, e-bay) relating to your article topic.
The vast majority of revenue sharing sites do require you to have your own Google AdSense account. Although most people qualify for this account without any problems, if at first you do not qualify there is an alternative. A revenue sharing site where you do not need any accounts of your own other than a PayPal account, is Squidoo. This may be the easiest place to start your online money-making efforts and can also be extremely profitable.
Once you have gained some experience and skills with revenue sharing sites you may want to move on to other online money-making home based business ideas such as building your own self-hosted websites, drop-shipping, affiliate marketing or another of the many possibilities. Just remember to do some research before you get started and you could find yourself with a profitable new career, even if you are over 50.
