  • To Be a Writer

Today, all that promotes online products can be a very lucrative business. You can, for example, writing digital books – e-book – and publish them on Amazon.

amazonWhen I talk about writing books, I’m not necessarily talking about novels or fiction. It may be technical books on any topic that you know well such as a guide to teach how to grow hydrangeas or tulips, a guide to teach how to graft trees, as make a garden or how to raise chickens and other farmyard animals, or can even write short stories for children.

You can prepare your texts in Portuguese or English. Do not forget that there are approximately 280 million Portuguese speakers in the world. Portuguese is the 5th most spoken language in the world, 3rd most spoken in the Western Hemisphere and the most widely spoken in the southern hemisphere of the Earth.

You see? You can provide yours texts to a store open to millions of customers worldwide that pays up to 70% of royalties directly to the author’s account!

There are several free classified sites in Portugal, but probably OLX is the most popular.

After hearing so much about the OLX, I decided to try it myself. Those who have children like me (I’m a mother of two), knows that as they grow, the  olx2objects or clothes that lose their usefulness, keep accumulating at home, in the garage or storage room. I then decided to turn what I don’t needed in money. And I was surprised with the result!

Items can be listed for free, however, if you want to highlight the announcement, you will have to pay. Listed products appear on the list in chronological order, with the most recent at the top of the list, and remain on sale for a period of one month. After the deadline, if the item is not sold, you can reactivate the sale for free for periods of 30 days.

There are other selling sites like eBay or leilõ where people leave feedback to the user at the end of each business. This allows to know the opinion of others about the seller or buyer: if the transaction went well, if the product was received ok, if the amount was paid on time, etc.

However, in my experience in OLX, so far I’ve never had any problems, or as a seller or as a buyer. As a seller, I arrange with the client the place to deliver the product, by rule a public place, where we make the business. If the customer requests shipment by mail, I add the shipping cost to the price. And I only ship the item after the bank transfer has been made to my account. Personally, I always ship the items by registered mail, because I keep proof of shipment from CTT, which may be necessary if the customer does not receive the item.

downloadBefore placing the items for sale, I recommend you do a market research on OLX, looking for similar items to get an idea of the practiced price, however, you can choose the price you want.

Make a brief description of the item you are selling and say to the customers whether it is new or used. You should add some pictures of the article as well.

You can also put on sale items with defects or malfunctions which may have demand from those who want to use the parts or want to repair them, however, you should make that clear in the description you enter and, if possible, you should show the defect in a specific picture, so that the buyer can not claim that it was unaware the problem.

Then just wait for the contacts of potential buyers to sell what you don’t want and to get more space at home! Go to OLX website here.

  1. I already do make some money at home from various sources and I’m always on the lookout for new ideas to increase my home income. That’s how I came across your article.

    I haven’t actually heard of Clickworker before. I’ll have to look into that one. I already do some freelancing and have been writing and selling eBooks on Amazon Kindle since 2010. Affiliate marketing sounds interesting.

    • Hi Darren,

      When we work from home it’s good to have various sources, and it’s safer!

      Affiliate marketing is probably one of the greatest sources of income for those who work from home, so I highly recommend you try it out!

      Thank you for your comment



  2. A lot of people offer free E-Books in exchange for subscribing to a websites e-mail list. For most of these to be free, does the writer create the e-book themselves, or do they find a way to work out a deal with another e-book writer? I have been curious, as I have thought that having a list for my website would be quite effective for me, but I am unsure how to offer an incentive for joining my list.
