* Using Videos
Videos are extremely powerful if done right. Choose a topic you're comfortable to talk about and create a series of videos. You can place these videos on our blog but make sure you also upload them to YouTube and other video websites. You can also choose to have just a text post on your website and the video on the video websites.
Just be creative. There are many types of videos out there. You can simply show your screen, you can record yourself, whatever you want.
Make your videos interesting and captivating.
Podcasts are becoming more popular every day. They allow you to connect directly to your audience and there are many people who prefer podcasts to read a post or watch a video. Just give it a try.
* Using Forums
Start up by creating a spreadsheet of all the forums in your niche. Open an account with each one of them and create a signature with a link or two pointing to your website. Then, search for threads where you are able to give a good insight. The more answers you give, the better. This will make you not only have more links pointing to your website (within your signature) as it will also allow you to become an authority in your niche since other people on the forums will start to recognize you.
Although they're not so commonly used nowadays, it's always good to have links pointing to your website. And with articles sites, you can have this through the "Resource Box" at the end of the article.
* Commenting on other Blogs
There are many blogs that still have their comments open. Just make a list of the best blogs in your niche, and check the ones that allow you to have a link to your website. Then, once a day, go through all those blogs you found and see if you can leave a relevant comment. Make sure not to spam or saying anything redundant. Your credibility is on the line here.
* Guest Blogging
Guest blogging is pretty common nowadays and there are many blogs accepting guest posts. Again, you need to make a list of the most relevant blogs that accept guest posts and see their guidelines carefully. Then, just follow them and try to be accepted. Make sure the blogs you choose allow you to have at least one link pointing to your website.
Each one of these methods works on its own; but it's far better to use them all to see more results, sooner. Consistency is the key and with time, you'll see a steady growth in your new visitors and visitors coming back to your website.

Who knows? - working at home might be better than your previous physical job.
This week was a challenging week for my neighboring community. Yes, the global crisis has hit hard and many have lost their jobs. This is a very sad event for us. I visited one of my relatives and asked how they were. I saw how devastated they felt. My cousin said they did not know what to do and how to start again. Jobs are just not as easy to come by as they used to be.
Unemployment has been at its peak this week and I could not help but feel a little upset. After my visit, I went straight home and tried to finish my last book for the week. Suddenly, a thought came into my mind - Why did I not suggest to them to try the same work at home ideas that were helping me make more money on the internet? I rushed to finish my book that night so I could go back to them in the morning and tell them what I had realised.
In the morning, they were surprised to see me again. I sat beside my cousin next to his coffee table and told him about my revelation. I asked him if he had ever tried working at home. He said he knew about work at home ideas but had never imagined doing so himself.
He continued talking and said - "Right now I would do anything to have a job."
So I continued and suggested some of the work at home ideas I knew would b great for him to try.
Well of course, I suggested that they should try my own online business, the e-book publishing business. This is one of the best paying opportunities online. You will be able to earn thousands of dollars in just a week if your e-book gets sold to many readers. The first thing you will have to do is to think of an interesting topic, one that will interest you and your market. You write about it and then find a good store online. You will have to upload your book to the store and promote it. You have to promote it well. The only way for your books to get sold is to promote them in the most effective ways you can think of.
If you are a good writer but can not imagine yourself finishing a book then you can always apply for an Article Writing Job. This does not require you to finish a book. All you have to do is to find a company online that is looking for an article writer. When you get hired then you will work for them on a daily basis and your task might be to write a number of articles and submit them during the day. The number of words for each article will depend on your employer. You will also be given topics or keywords.
Another high earning online job is Affiliate Marketing. This is when you sell someone else's products online. A digital store makes this happen. You will have to sign up for an account so you can start promoting your product.
The most challenging part in Affiliate Marketing is promotion. It will take creativity and discipline.
My cousin was delighted when he heard about these work at home ideas. I gave him some easy to implement ideas that would not cost him anything to start. I helped him apply for some online jobs. Today,as always, believe that there is no such thing as unemployment and crisis if you just know how to search for new ways to make money. Try some of these work at home ideas now.
