How to Work Online From Home in Retirement

Work Online From Home

Learning how to work online from home may just be your answer to a better retirement. Are you one of the millions of retirees who did not save as much for retirement as you might have hoped to save? Here’s the stark reality that many baby boomers are discovering. The average pension, assuming you have one, does not go quite as far as we once hoped it would.

Many seniors are facing the necessity of supplementing retirement income after they retire from the full-time workforce. Finding part-time employment may be an option, but this entails giving up some of the freedom that compelled you to retire in the first place. Do you keep asking yourself if there’s a better option?

The Power of the Internet

Today, the Internet is intricately woven into the fabric of society. Billions of daily users can no longer envision the world without the staggering array of information, goods, and services available through the Internet. Is it any wonder that hundreds of thousands of individuals across the globe are choosing to earn all or at least some, of their income on the Internet? Why not you?

How to Work Online From Home

Unlike many other income generating options, there are no age barriers associated with working online. This is great news for retirees. The ability to use a keyboard essentially ensures that you can learn to make money online. Obviously, you will need an Internet Service Provider and a computing device. Since you are reading this blog online, we’ll assume you already have that covered.

A Website – The Essential Ingredient to Successfully Working Onlinemoney bag

If you are willing to build a website, it can become a powerful moneymaker. You create an online presence with your website. Options available without a website are limited to small amounts of spending money each month. On the other hand, a website has almost unlimited earning potential.

Fortunately, in this day and age, the website building arena is a guru-free zone. If you can send an email or create electronic documents, you can build a basic website within minutes. Lest you see this as some type of get-rich-quick scheme, let me assure you that making money with a website is not an easy or immediate process. It’s exciting, challenging, often fun, and generally takes several months of diligent effort to see results.

What’s Your Passion?

My recommendation would be creating a website about an activity or subject you are passionately interested in and find enthralling. Your enthusiasm will communicate itself to your readers and draw people to your site. It will also keep you on task crafting content that will prove valuable to your target market, also referred to as your niche. A successful website is all about the needs of your visitors.

Clear, concise, compelling content that solves reader problems is the ultimate goal of every niche website owner. You must step into the shoes of your audience and understand their pain points, hopes, and dreams. Valuable content flows from research that uncovers keywords your market is searching for through the search engines.

Product Promotion

Once you have traffic regularly viewing your content, you can promote the products and services of others that your readers desire. This approach I’m describing is affiliate marketing and represents an easy and effective way of monetizing a website. Depending on your niche, there are thousands of affiliate programs available. One popular choice is Amazon, due to the broad range and plethora of products offered

A 100% Free Opportunity Exists to Explore This Work Online From Home Possibility

I created my website and initiated an Internet marketing business in retirement. This was made possible for me because I found a fabulous organization called Wealthy Affiliate where I was able to fully investigate website creation and affiliate marketing through a free Starter Membership. I have since become a premium member, but I didn’t make that leap of faith until after I completed a series of 10 classes and built my website. I didn’t spend a dime until after I was completely confident that this was my destiny. Even then, my financial investment has been minimal relative to the rewards.

  1. I too came across wealth affiliate while searching for ways to make money online. The day I signed up for the free starter membership was the day my life changed. I have yet to come across another program that has what IT HAS to offer. Such a great program, community, and training regiment.

    • Hi Jason,

      I couldn’t agree more with your opinion of Wealthy Affiliate. Thanks for confirming my assessment of the program and for visiting my site. I appreciate your comments.

  2. I think working from home online with a home business is going to be a must in the future for many of us. Pensions are becoming much less and much lower than in the past.

    Saving enough for retirement while working is not possible for most of us, we spend much of what we earn just to survive.

    • I completely agree with your comments. In fact, I think we’re already there. People are reaching retirement age in huge numbers but many of these folks are not financially prepared to completely leave the workforce. Working online can be a perfect solution. Thanks very much for visiting my site and joining the conversation.

  3. The Internet has given us all a second chance to build a retirement income. It does take some training, but it’s not difficult to make money online once you know how. Honestly, it’s the easiest money I’ve ever made.

    I’ve been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for about 18 months and highly recommend it to anyone interested in making money online. The training is rock solid and based on proven business principles. It’s free to try, so there is absolutely no risk.

    • Hi Gary,

      I think you are absolutely right on all counts. The training at Wealthy Affiliate is second to none. Between the very thorough training and the highly supportive community, Wealthy Affiliate opens up all of the opportunities the Internet has to offer. Thanks very much for your comments and for visiting my site.

  4. Hi there, Linda

    I’m Jimbo.

    Working from home online is a nice way to live. I’ve been doing it since a year ago, July 6th 2015 to be exact. I’m not a millionaire yet, but I will get there. 🙂

    I’m still learning a lot of cool stuff, new tricks and building a few websites. I really need to just focus on one site to ramp up my earnings.

    Love the post, Linda…


    • Hi Jimbo,
      Working from home is a super lifestyle, isn’t it? I’m loving the entire process of building out my site. I’ve purchased a couple of other domains and have plans for more websites but for now this site is my major focus. Thanks for visiting my site and for taking the time to add your comments.

  5. Great article on how to work from home in retirement Linda.
    The Internet has so many opportunities these days for so many people, including for those that have retired.
    It can really give people the chance to build up a supplementary income, as well as give them a chance to learn new things and do something that they really enjoy.
    The Internet is not just for young people, it is a level playing field for people of all ages!
    I really hope more people of retirement age take up this golden opportunity.
    Thanks 🙂

    • Hi John,
      I have to agree that the Internet is filled with opportunities. It’s fantastic that age is not a barrier to pursuing an income online. Thanks very much for your comments.

  6. I can’t wait for retirement because I want to be retired and wealthy now! LOL.

    However, your guidance will certainly benefit many retirees looking for additional incomes so they don’t have to worry about low pensions and going without.

    Wealthy Affiliate sure sounds like an AWESOME opportunity for any retired individual to share their passion with others and earn at the same time which will enable them to live the rest of life comfortably on their own terms.

    Thanks Linda


    • Hi Neil,
      You’re absolutely right. Wealthy Affiliate is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to supplement retirement income online. But it certainly isn’t limited to retirees 🙂 Anyone interested in working from home and developing an online business can definitely benefit from the fabulous training and also the online community that is available through WA.

      Good luck with your quest to become wealthy now 🙂 and thanks for commenting.

  7. Hi Linda, great article! Having left the workforce, I won’t call it retirement, to work at home was quite a transition for me. The biggest concern was whether or not I would have enough money to live comfortably in retirement. This actually held me back from retiring for about a year. It turned out to be a needless worry. But I know it really impacts many “baby boomers” at or near retirement age who are reluctant to pull the trigger.

    Even if making money in retirement is not a concern, building an online business gives the retiree purpose and ability to help others.

    Best of success to you,

    • Hi Glen,
      It seems we have a similar mindset 🙂 I too was very excited at the prospect of building something of my own, staying mentally active, and helping fellow retirees who had dreams of working online themselves. It’s been a very rewarding journey on many levels. It’s great to get the perspective of other retirees. I appreciate your comments!
