Default The Best Ways to Make Full Time Income from Home

In my opinion the best ways to earn full time income from home is to work as freelancer.

Nowadays many websites are available on internet that help you get your projects.

You can sign up free and they will deduct their commission from you payment amount.

The good thing about this job is you can work anytime you want and anywhere you want.

Good Luck!

I don't disagree. There are a lot of freelancing opportunities out there. I also think one of the best ways is having multiple "eggs" in your basket (multiple sources of income).

I think it varies a little for each person. Personally I'm building a business that will create true residual income for my family and I love it !

The drawback to freelancing is that you're still trading time for money. It is still a viable way to earn an income from your skills, but if you get sick or take a vacation the income stops.

If you've set aside enough emergency funds you can get through the gaps when you need (or want) to take time off.

However, if you can produce a product that can be sold over and over then you can leverage your time. So skills like programming, writing, music, photography, etc. can be leveraged by creating your own products and selling them. Or you can buy the rights to a product and sell it.

Freelancing = create once, sell once
Residual = create once, sell multiple times

As malea pointed out, multiple streams of income are good, so a mix of freelancing and other residual types of income can be good.

Freelancing is good for quick cash but certainly not full time residual income stream.

Though you won't make as much money, another option that uses writing is writing a book, and self-publish it for multiple devices like the Kindle and Smashwords. I'm in the process of that right now. Even if you sell the book for $3.99 or so, you still get a commision off of it. Make sure and choose the 30% commision though, because the people who opt for the 70% will have their book available for free for the Kindle Prime members, and they can ask for their money back once they finish it.

All the above are only good ideas... However I advertise online and generate leads for businesses.

This is all automated by me so all I need to do is check the ROI and ctr of the ads and keywords and I make money.

I have done this before where I go on holiday and just keep the business running on its own.

Whatever you do, it will always take 'time' to start something, create something, and then have it 'work' for you in the long run.

I recommend waking up early everyday and setting up a plan. I wake up at 5am everyday and check off list items before my 'work' day even begins. It makes every day a lot more productive, that's for sure.

Freelancing is okay, but just make sure you're selling what you're good at, what you love, or what you can add value with to someone.

There is no shame in monetizing your talents.

I agree that the easiest way to get full time income at home is through freelancing. I do freelance writing and make what most would consider to be full time income from it.

That being said, I'd like to transition away from writing for others and into writing for myself in the future so that I can earn more from each word I write.

For some it might be the 'easiest'. I think it all boils down to your talents.

There are other avenues to 'easier' money. I, for example, have a knack for teaching and web-development. Freelancing wouldn't be easier for me.

For others, dancing might be easy for them, but for me I dance like a shaved-naked wiener dog in the Antarctic.

Box up your talents, what you're good at, and sell it at whatever capacity you have.

People are willing to pay good money to know what you know, do what you do, and as long as you're willing to put in the time and energies to make others happy, you can do well for yourself!
