Make Extra Money While On Social Security ( Find Out How )

Make money while on Social Security

It is suggested by Business Insider online magazine that there could be trouble up ahead for retirees.

It sets out three reasons why they think that serious trouble awaits the retirees.

They state :

  • Baby boomers are expected to live longer than previous generations — and it’s creating retirement challenges.
  • Living longer means boomers now either have to work longer to support themselves or have to worry about outliving their savings.
  • Working longer, however, is not an option for many.

Living Longer causing anxiety

Boomers are expected to live longer than previous generations, and it’s giving them anxiety about retirement. They have fear that they will outlive their retirement savings.

It is said people say they’re happiest when they get older, many feel that they will be able to take it easy and live out their retirement but unfortunately baby boomers — born from the 1940s to the 1960s — feel pressured to work longer to support themselves.

There are many ways a retiree can work without having the added pressure of joining the workforce, whether full time or part-time.  They can start their own business 

Not enough retirement funds

According to a survey by the Insured Retirement Institute, a trade association for the retirement industry, from earlier this year. Only 54% had any retirement savings at all, and only 40% had tried to calculate how much money they would need to retire.

There were about 60% who thought their savings and retirement income would cover their basic needs comfortable during the retirement years.

Some are working longer, but not everyone can.

Some retirees who have no savings or not enough are opting to work around this problem by staying employed far into their 70s, at least in part-time positions.

But working longer may not be a realistic option for everyone that is approaching the retirement age.

Affiliate Marketing Can Work For You (Let Me Show You How)

Affiliaste Marketing Can Work for you
Affiliate Marketing Can Work For You (Let Me Show You How)

Affiliate Marketing can work for you.

I would like to give you some tips on how to succeed in the world of affiliate marketing,

There are platforms that will teach you all about affiliate marketing I am a member of such a platform Wealthy Affiliate.

Affiliate marketing can be very lucrative, and can be a good source for providing extra income. I would recommend it to anyone.

Today’s best affiliate marketers are bloggers and other social media personalities who have a large following.

How Affiliate marketing works

Affiliate-marketing is an arrangement, made between the affiliate marketer or blogger and a  seller or merchant.

The affiliate marketer promotes this product through links, banners, testimonials or other content.

Instead of the merchant paying in advance for website links that promote a business, the merchant would provide a commission to affiliates for every transaction that results from these links,

This arrangement is a win for both sides as it helps both the merchant and the affiliate, merchants acquire new customers and increase revenues, while affiliates can generate revenues.

Affiliate-marketing programs can be a substantial income earner for an entrepreneur through their ability to influence, their following.

Finding Affiliate Programs.

There’s nothing wrong with affiliates making a commission in exchange for a promotion involving the placement of links, banner ads and similar forms of advertisement in their blog post.

From time to time, an affiliate marketer might highlight a product through a review or testimonial.

The marketer must then ensure that the agreement with the affiliate provides appropriate disclosure to the audience.

I think it is best to join affiliate programs instead of individual stores because from time to time there is some glitch that causes loss of sales and results in the lost revenues for affiliates. You will have to keep track of every transaction to be sure you are paid.

The beauty of a well-developed affiliate program is its integration with an online store.

As an affiliate marketer, you can have your own system of doing business with a merchant but I would suggest exploring options available through third-party affiliate programs such as those offered by CJ Affiliate,Shareasale, and others

Affiliate-marketing programs pay a percentage of each sale generated from the affiliate’s activities.

Driving traffic to an online store involves placing a hyperlink or banner on a website or posting articles covering a product’s features and benefits.

Some affiliate marketers will only promote items that range in price between $60-$100 as the commission  seems to be more worthwhile.

But others contend that there is the volume in products that are at a lower price and the certainty of making a sale is increased. But it would be probably good to include a little of both price ranges.

In Promoting Products Be Honest

Affiliate marketers should promote products in their own niche, an example would be if your niche is clothing do not on the same website promote garden tools.

Marketers must also be transparent and honest be sure that your articles are truthful, only promote products that you have tried, or have done exhaustive research on the product.

Remember your reputation is on the line and in order to be a successful online entrepreneur you must gain the trust of your audience and to do so you must be honest.

Here are some reviews by DADADABC teachers posted by Glassdoor https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/DaDa-Teacher-Reviews

I worked at DaDa for less than a year

Pros

Great pay, Great students, Easy to learn the online platform,

Cons

Requires ESL certificate but sates on platform application ad not require, the online ad also states educators could earn certification through them, requires you to do your own background check, lack of communication holds educator responsible for the time requested even though they are not the time period is not a penalty within contract expectations

I have been working at DaDa part-time for more than a year

Pros

This job is a very rewarding Excellent source of supplemental income and very fun!

Cons

It is hard to say goodbye to your regular students when they choose another teacher and it breaks my heart when I can’t see them anymore.

I have been working at DaDa part-time for more than a year

Pros

The students are great. You get to know them, can tailor your lessons to their strengths, and work on the weaknesses while giving them a fun learning experience. Overall I love working here. As with any job you do there will be some things that are unfavorable.

Cons

Evaluations are an unpaid activity and they are time-consuming. Seven evaluations take a minimum of an hour to complete and that is if you plan an hour before you begin work for those classes. If you count the prep time, keeping student records and all the unpaid time you spend on giving good evaluations that are differentiated for each student, as well as the prep time you spend before classes, sometimes it feels very overwhelming. The reward point system needs to be better.

Of course, you can start your own business for free, you will be able to set your own schedule, I will assist you along with a very helpful community who are eager to see you succeed.

Retirement Challenges For Boomers (Ways To Overcome Retirement Challenges )

Ways to overcome retirement challenges
Retirement Challenges for boomers.

Retirement Challenges for Boomers.

#1 Challenge

Boomers aren’t saving enough in the short-term to adequately fund the long-term time in retirement.

One of the challenges facing boomers retiring is Most have not saved enough money to live comfortably in retirement.

And because life expectancy continues to increase so too does the risk of outliving one’s savings.

Only 23 percent of boomers ages 56-61 expect to receive income from a private company pension plan, and only 38 percent of older boomers expect a pension. and future income from Social Security stagnates or even decreases

#2 Challenge

Social Security will soon be unable to provide full benefits.

Social Security is the largest single federal program in the United States budget (the retirement portion of the program spent nearly $800 billion in 2017).

Social Security Administration projects that the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance (OASI) and Disability Insurance (DI) trust funds will be depleted by 2034 and 2032, respectively. Upon joint depletion in 2034, 86 million beneficiaries will face a 21 percent across-the-board cut in benefits.

As the enormous Baby Boom generation continues to retire in greater numbers, The problem of outliving one’s retirement savings is most pressing for those already in or about to enter retirement. Although there is no real substitute for a lifetime of wise financial planning and dutiful saving, options do exist that can help supplement one’s later-in-life income and emergency preparedness   

#3 Challenge

Underestimating health care costs

Retirees do not take into account health care expenses, particularly long-term care costs.

Many simply think they can rely on don’t understand the system: Shockingly, 50% of those in the survey say they have not factored in the cost of long-term care insurance because they say they will rely on

Medicare. But Medicare provides no coverage for long-term care. Only 8% of boomers say they have purchased a long-term care policy.

The population is living longer and health care and especially longterm health care should be part of our retirement planning.

 #4 Challenge

Underestimating retirement income

When we are planning for retirement we sometimes underestimate how much it is going to cost us to live on

The average amount spent by boomers  65-74 is $55,000 a year, but most baby boomers say they will need less than that to live on.they have not taken into consideration the increased cost of living

The outlook for retirees may seem grim, but all is not lost, there are a number of viable options exist that can improve the outlook for retirees.

If you are near retirement you could opt to work longer to start your retirement at a little later this could give you the opportunity to save some extra money, and if you have a company health insurance that would be a great asset for now.

If you are already retired you could find some part-time work, and if you have owned your own home, you may consider downsizing and maybe renting out a room or a couple of rooms on airnib vacation rentals, I have friends who have opted for this option, and is doing quite well.

Then there is the option that I have taken, and that is to start an online business, and you can do so for free.

Affiliate Marketing

According to Wikipedia Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts

In other words, Affiliate marketing is the referring of a product or service by sharing it on a blog, social media platforms, or website.

You will then earn a commission whenever a purchase is made by someone who makes a purchase through the unique link associated with your ad on your website or blog.

How does it work 

Step 1: Choose an Interest. This can be anything at all, any interest, passion or even something you have no personal experience with.

Step 2: Build a Website. Your website is your foundation.

Step 3: Attract Visitors.

Step 4: Earn Revenue.

Understanding how to make money
understanding how to make money Lesson 2 phase 1

Affiliate marketing is a low risk. Since can join for free,  you can start making money with an established affiliate product or service without any upfront investment.

Affiliate marketing can also become a  passive income earner through commission as your affiliate links can continue to deliver a steady paycheck

It is not a get rich quick business,initially, you’ll have to invest time creating traffic sources.it is said being an entrepreneur is living a few years as most people won’t, so you can live the rest of your life like most people can’t

You may be thinking you have no experience in online marketing, or you have no computer skills, not educated enough or too old, I had those same thoughts before I became a member of one of the best teaching platforms

Wealthy Affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate is NOT a new kid on the block, Wealthy Affiliate has been around for almost 15 years and has an A+ rating with the BBB, our membership is worldwide you will find almost every nation represented.

The lesson videos are presented in a manner that is easily understood, there is no hurry, you can do the lesson at your own pace. There is no time limit to the free membership.

Premium membership

There is also another level of membership, which much offers much more tools and information which will enable you to succeed, it is said premium members experience 5 times as much success.

I know you can search Google and find instructions on how to build your website, but I think it is much easier with Wealthy Affiliate, it only takes 30 seconds and you will have a beautiful website, web hosting is free. Backup is free the only thing you will need to purchase is a domain name.

You will build your site using the free domain name .siterubix. But after a while, you will need to purchase your own domain name for about $13.00

You are probably wondering if you can be successful with a free membership, I have seen members on the free site for over 18 months just how successful they are I do not know the answer to that.

But just to show you the advantages of going premium, I have placed the tools and information for each membership.

z

With affiliate marketing, it is good to have many streams of income and with the premium membership, you will have that option as you get 50 websites all included in the premium membership.

Affiliate marketing is not just for retirees, affiliate marketing is for anyone who wants to earn some money.

I think it would be very good for Gen X, millennials and Gen Z if they start earning extra and saving then they will better planning for their retirement.

Here is a link to a blog post from one of our members, I hope you will read it

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/jerryhuang/blog/vegas-2019-thank-you-kyle-and-carson/a_aid/5373fe86

He is only 21 years old and is a super affiliate, a super affiliate is an affiliate who earn at least  $7,000.00 per month in commission.

In conclusion

I know it may seem difficult, but everything seems difficult until you learn how to do it, you can use me as an example, I am a retiree in my 70s had no knowledge of affiliate marketing, no concept of blogging, and my typing was below average. Now I have two websites and holding my own.

z

Wealthy Affiliate is a company that has the most updated information on affiliate marketing, they are always updating their platform, it is a company that really cares that their members succeed not only in affiliate marketing but in life in general, the community of likeminded affiliate marketers are ready to assist you in any way they can

Boomers Retirement Income Is Inadequate. (It Can Be Fixed With This)

Boomers inadequate retirement income
Boomers retirement income is inadequate

Is your retired income inadequate?

The retirement income for most of us reveals that many people are living on relatively little — and due to the high cost of living their incomes are shrinking over time, too. Fortunately, there is an action that can be taken to elevate this situation. You can start your own business.

Living beyond your income cannot continue for very long without getting into trouble, you will end up borrowing or using credit cards with very high-interest rates.

I know from experience having to cut back drastically on your spending, having to do without things that you have become accustomed to having is hard.

How much retirement income do you need?

Everyone has different needs and lifestyles and situations, therefore, no one-size-fits-all answer to that question, as each of us is in a different situation.

We should spend some time figuring out how much income we need. Some experts suggest you can get by on 35% of your pre-retirement income and others suggesting you’ll need 70% to 80% of it.

When planning for your retirement finances take into consideration whether you will have mortgage payments in retirement, whether you’ll be supporting others, how costly your expected activities in retirement and also factor in healthcare cost which is rising at a very rapid rate.

Increasing your income in retirement

Most of us will not be able to save the amount needed to retire comfortably but there are  steps you can take to boost your retirement income.

For example, if it is possible you can increase your contributions to retirement accounts and your other savings accounts.

Delaying retiring is another way to boost your savings, by doing so will mean your nest egg can grow while you defer retirement.

You might enjoy employer-sponsored health insurance for a few more years, too.

You might also be one of the many retirees who don’t stop working entirely. By working for a  more few years in retirement, maybe, in a part-time job, you can take some pressure off your nest egg and stretch your dollars further.

Or you would like to be your own boss by starting your business, you can start your business for FREE 

You can have your own online marketing business If you are not familiar with online marketing which is also affiliate marketing.

Affiliate Marketing

Wikipedia describes affiliate marketing as a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.

Affiliate marketing is hassle-free allowing you to focus on marketing, sales, and making money. It’s perfect for beginners. No special skills needed. And, the money-making potential only increases with the more experience you gain,

To Start Affiliate marketing:

You can get started with Affiliate marketing in many ways.

Here are a few that you can pick from:

  • Create a blog and use it to promote a product.
  • Create a YouTube channel and promote products
  • Create an email list by creating a mini-website
  • Via Podcasting

Here are steps to get started with affiliate marketing using the blog method

  1. Choose a niche for your blog
  2. Choose the affiliate products that you can promote
  3. Create content around those products
  4. Drive traffic to your website/affiliate post
  5. Focus on driving more traffic and repeating the process.

The reason blogging is one of the most effective ways to get started with affiliate marketing is because it requires a minimum investment and you can learn everything about it in no time. Especially if you have a good platform that provides everything you will need.

From here on, what really matters it how much dedication, time and work you put in to grow your affiliate business.

Wealthy Affiliate is a platform built for every affiliate marketer whether you are new to affiliate marketing or have years of experience in affiliate marketing.

At the end of phase one, you will be ready for business, here is a video of the walkthrough of the steps for setting up your website.

Wealthy Affiliate is a well-known platform that offers everything you need to start your online business in the same place,

Once you become a member you will get free hosting, free backup, if you are a free member you will get 30 free keyword search from one of the best keyword research tools, and 2 websites.

I must let you know that there is also another type of membership, the premium, this membership will allow you access to more information and tools that will enhance your success rate.

Here is a look at what is being offered in both membership.

As you can see there is so much more that will be available to you and the price in very reasonable for all you will be getting.

Here is a look at the premium billing, payments are broken down to easy payment plan for your convenience.

I must remind you that the online marketing business is like any business, success will not come overnight, it does take time.

You need time to build your audience and gain their trust, and this takes time, the good thing about online marketing is there are no bills in regards to upkeep, maintenance and salary. There is no inventory, and remember you can start for free.

A free membership never expires, you will not be asked for any financial information, the only thing that is required is your name and email address.

I would encourage any soon to be retirees, to start now so when it’s time to retire your business should be showing some profit.

Affiliate marketing is not just for retirees, its for anyone who wants to earn some extra cash or own their own online business,

It is good for stay at home parents, college students, or maybe you are saving to buy yourself something special and need the extra cash.

Affiliate Marketing will not only allow you to earn an income but in time your income can become a passive income, become a member of Wealthy Affiliate and learn how.

If you need to make money in a hurry then affiliate marketing is not what you need. (be careful of those quick money setups most of them are scams)

With affiliate marketing, you will need perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and patience. But success will come.

You can become a member by clicking on any of the links in this post, and I will be there to answer your questions and assist you.

Remember it is free to join, so why not take a look-see, it will cost you nothing, and if you would like to see everything that is included in the premium membership I would suggest  upgrading to premium within the first 7 days of joining for only $19.00 for the month and if you like what you see you can stay if not you can quit.
