No matter which of the many retirement jobs you choose on the Net, you should strongly consider publishing a blog or an online magazine (eZine). The publishing of the blog or eZine may be your full time Internet work or you may choose other Internet work. Regardless, it is proven that you will do better at whatever Internet work you choose if you communicate with your customers using a blog or an eZine.

Because publishing is such and important part of any retirement job on the Net, we will cover publishing as a basic part of your education before we get to the final job that you might select.

Ways to Make Money (Business Models)

Now that you know about publishing and eBay, let’s explore the ways to make money on the Internet from retirement jobs. When you evaluate the ways to make money on the Net, it all boils down to two methods. You can sell your own product or service and collect the profit from your own sale, or you can sell someone else’s product and collect a commission or finder’s fee from the sale.

The following two pages contain some ideas about the various ways to make money on the Internet. These are also called “business models”. Focus on these and think how your interests/talents might match some of them.

As we proceed, keep in mind that there is no law that says you cannot operate multiple business models at the same time. Many people do this. In fact, you will see the term “multiple streams of income” used on the Net. This refers to receiving income from multiple sources or business models. This is a wise business decision since it diversifies your business. If one model slows down or goes bad, you have other models to keep producing income.
