Your online career over time
« on: November 18, 2014, 09:36:35 AM »
I have only been doing freelance work for about 8 months now, but I am much better off than I was when I first started. I have started to get clients and have a good reputation with those I work with on projects. For the most part, I write, but I am looking to branch out to different things eventually. How has your online career evolved over the years, and what tips do you have for those who are just starting out?

I was the same. I didn't really know where to start at first. Postloop and this forum in particular have helped tremendously. I too mostly write but have a few things on the side that pay out here and there. Once I got my footing it all kind of fell into place. I feel like I can make as much money as I want if I just put in the effort. At first I didn't make much more than a few cents a day. Putting in the time and effort has really payed off!

I'm not so sure that my career has evolved. I do know that it's changed a lot since I first started working online. It used to be that I'd work myself to death taking on a lot of writing clients and the money was good back then. It fizzled out for me though over the summer and now I work 9AM - 8PM for a transcription company and do a few other odd jobs in there as well. Of course, it's nice to take breaks whenever I want but I feel like I work more now than ever LOL

I have been in the internet marketing industry for three years now. The most important tip I have for anyone looking to succeed is to just keep at it. The beginning can be extremely difficult. Landing that first client can take weeks or even months. Don't get discouraged and just keep on learning.

I start online knowing nothing, I just searched how to make money online and the first sites I have tried were PTC sites.
Now, I can say that I do have enough knowledge to know what sites are most probably legit or scam. I have tried various ways and sites to earn online and I keep discovering more of it through forums like this.  I can say that I am a seasoned online worker already. :P

There are some days that are going to be better than others and you just have to remember that. Over time, the money will start coming in, but you have to be patient and keep working at it. That is the key, you just have to keep going and don't get frustrated when things don't go according to plan. I reccently just had a client find me at random and reached out to me to do some work and it  felt amazing. We talked back and forth online for a couple of days and then the work fell in my lap to do. I really felt so successful at that point.

When I started looking into online work, the only thing I easily found was a bunch of PTC sites, which weren't profitable at all.
I had some success when I found CloudCrowd on Facebook at the time, and was excited when the money started to come in, but my income took a big increase when I started on Postloop, mostly because I've found like-minded people who can help me in exchange for some mutual help.

I had a slump this last summer and really struggled to make money. It was like nobody was needing work and I got a little frustrated. Now I know that I should work a lot throughout the winter so that it will not hit me so hard if I can't make as much during the summer. For those of you who have been at this work online stuff for a while, are summers always a bad time for us people who work online or was this last summer just a fluke? I know a lot of people were struggling to make money over the summer.

I started working online more or less one year or one year and a half ago and I do it almost everyday, it's the best way to complement my full-time income.

My online career started back in 2010 as a freelance writer but was pretty much the same over the next two years. This changed when a friend of mine told to me venture into other online money making opportunities. That was when I got into blogging and some affiliate marketing which have both gave me an extra source of income that is quite significant.

I'm pretty new to this world, but I find it intriguing to say the least.  The number of people involved with working from home is amazing.   I guess it says a lot about the state of the economy, or maybe people are just fed up with working away from home.  In the old days people worked on small farms and built their lives around their homes. I see this as a return to that way of life.

You should expect to get more pay as you progress with any job, whether it be from home or a regular job you do outside. However if it is some customer support type job then I am sure the pay would not increase substantially, while if you were a writer who improvised and produced better work as opposed to when you started, your pay would increase accordingly. Then there are crowdsourcing jobs where no matter what your pay will stay the same unless they decide to change the rate for everyone that works for them all at once.

I'm pretty much just starting compared to some of you because only recently has it been vital to be able to work from anywhere.  I really want to be able to travel by RV and work anywhere.  That means I have to be making enough for all of our expenses, not just my half.  In my quest to figure out how to make more, I am working on learning to take these jobs as seriously as I would if I were in an office.  I try to sit down and work set times every day.

Seeing as I've been doing this for probably a month, I can't say my online career has evolved yet. I'm only getting started, and still finding my feet. But I'm truly inspired by other people's journeys and hope to be where everyone is in the future. I'm also grateful to everyone with experience as all us newbies have got in all of you a good support network and a fab sounding board. Thank you all :)
