The right place to know how to cash your skills.

There are many ways to generate a decent income while sitting in front of a laptop with an internet connection. If you have a good basic education i.e at least if you can read and write in English then it is enough to start a minimum income to meet your expenses.

The Idea is to do freelancing jobs. Nowadays there are many internet based platforms like, and many others where you can easily get yourselves registered and start to work online based on your skills. The jobs posted on these sites are categories into different areas. Some categories are highly paid i.e web programming, web design, e-commerce, and some of the categories may have less budgeted tasks/jobs. 

To start working with these sites you have to create your profile, put your correct information, photo and other educational information and experiences and select your appropriate category where you can work. The final step is to apply for the jobs, remember when you are applying to try to understand the client's profile, requirements, his previous given projects to others, his reviews etc. If you have previous experience also share work done as examples with your profile.

For an ordinary business, we need money to invest, while we can start internet business without money or with nominal investment and it does not require a huge amount.  All you need is your skills, a free profile on a freelancing site like, a reliable internet connection and last but not least time available to accomplish your task well in time. Only some sites require a nominal fee to apply for the jobs, remaining sites offer free signups. Remember as when you signup on a site as new contractor /freelancer, you will definitely have no previous work done to show, and employers are usually looking for individuals having relevant experience. This is the reason why initially it takes time to hunt your first online job. But remember everyone starts in similar circumstances, and it is your patience and efforts which ultimately make your efforts a success!
