For some people, work just has to be in an office, factory, store, or any other environment that’s separate from home. Even a second job would have to be in a separate place. For others, a home office is a welcome place for a secondary or even a primary job. If you’re one of those people, you have some unique opportunities, but you also have some very particular challenges of working from home.
Good article on how to find the best keywords. I would stress the fact that it’s the #1 reason why most affiliate marketers fail in earning some income. If you start building a site with too many competitive keywords, you can’t have traffic, that’s for sure! I’ve failed several times because of that (too many competitive niches). Jaaxy is a real must have tool, providing very accurate data on a lot of keywords. Good luck with your keywords researches!

There is another way to start the business, that is, drop-shipping. Drop-shipping is a retail fulfillment method where a store doesn't keep the products it sells in stock. Instead, when a store sells a product, it purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to the customer. As a result, the merchant never see or handle the product.
I almost didn't list Swagbucks here because, while it's a great rewards site, they list in their terms that you can't expect for up to 10 days after you cash out. However, it's still an option to earn fast cash because some people report getting paid much faster than this. You can redeem you SB (Swagbucks) for Amazon codes, Paypal cash, and gift cards to popular merchandisers among other things. These points build up quickly thanks the the large number of things you can do on the site to earn. I've used this site and been paid many times.
Insurance keywords are by far the most expensive. The Google AdWords keyword categories with the highest volumes and costs, such as the “insurance” category, represent businesses with very high lifetime customer value – in other words, industries like these are willing to pay a lot to acquire a new customer because the long term pay out in so beneficial.
Creating space for banner ads on your website is another way to generate a revenue from adverts. However for this type of advertising you will need to contact businesses directly and ask them if they would like to advertise on your website. The upside is that you can charge a set amount, or even a recurring monthly fee, to business to promote their services on your site. Using a WordPress plugin like AdSanity is an effective way to manage this type of advertising.
Finances. You need to be good at quick math and be able to make quick decisions. You have to be careful how much you pay for a book, and then keep careful track of the expenses involved in selling it. For instance, when you sell on a website, they’ll take a commission from the sale. In addition, some sites, like eBay, will charge you a listing fee for each book. If you request that your money be deposited via PayPal, then you’ll be charged a transaction fee per book. If you’re not careful, the fees will quickly negate your profits.

The first tip would be to ensure there is enough meat on the bone – One thing I see many people doing when building out amazon affiliate sites or niche sites in general, is really over estimating how much a site can potentially earn. They often just look at the headline figure of local monthly searches and build an entire site without doing adequate research. Let’s look at an example, building out a toaster oven review site. The two main keywords we’ll want to target would be buyer keywords, and would be something like “Best Toaster Oven” and “Toaster Oven Reviews” – we’d target both on a single page to get the most bang for the buck – and crafting a title like “Best Toaster Oven Reviews 2015” will kill several birds with one stone. Best toaster oven has 6,600 LMStoaster oven reviews has 5,400 LMSA quick research on Amazon shows that the price of these can go from $29 to $249 with the majority around the $50-$75 mark.

Before I talk about some of the methods for making money online, I wanted to address the role of pain versus pleasure. Every decision that we make in life is weighed on a pain-versus-pleasure scale. We will always do more to avoid pain than we will to gain pleasure, plain and simple. However, this is also what holds us back from succeeding in any endeavor.
Thank you for the clear, concise road-map for building a successful monetized site without relying on spam.
