3 Ways the Internet Gives Us More Control Over Our Work - Brett Clawson - Blog

3 Ways the Internet Gives Us More Control Over Our Work

“Money makes the world go ‘round” is an old adage, but it remains as relevant today as it ever was. The average person has to maintain a job in order to maintain the funds necessary for the things they want and need. However, the internet has opened a Pandora’s Box of sorts that has changed much of how the modern world functions, and making a living is no different. Online jobs offer a variety of jobs that, while unconventional, offer flexibility not only within the job itself, but also in the way a job affects your life. Here are some examples of online jobs that can give you more control over your finances.

MLM Companies

MLM stands for “multi-level marketing,” and it refers to a certain type of business that has actually been around for a while, but it has still been revolutionized by the internet. You would work for an MLM company as a freelancer, rather than as an employee, and this implies a few things. For starters, freelancers typically have less long term obligation to the company they work for. MLM jobs like LeVel’s Thrive Experience program operate by selling freelancers their product at a discounted rate that they then sell to interested parties for a profit. Since you invest in the supplies you’ll be selling, the company loses nothing if you abandon the job, so the reigns are much looser than traditional work.

Working for Commission

The internet, especially social media platforms, offers a chance for individuals to promote themselves and their skills, and that opens up a world of possibility for creative individuals. Artists have been able to use social media like Twitter and Instagram to leverage their artistic skill in order to make money. In order to make this “job” work, you’ll need to compensate for the lack of infrastructure that a job would normally provide. This means that you’ll need to develop a following in order to find clients, and you’ll need to develop, and share, a portfolio that showcases your talents. You’ll also need to find the right price points for both your skill level and your reputation, or lack thereof, or you’ll risk losing interested parties. You will also need to be patient in order to make this work, as clients may not be effective at communicating their wishes, which can make the process more laborious than it needs to be. There is also a chance that a given client simply won’t pay you, which can be a huge waste of your time and energy.

Content Creation

Content creators have won the day, as far as internet enabled jobs go. This is the dream job of the digital age, so much so that is often deemed to not be a “real job,” despite often being much more work than a typical example of a real job. As such, it is worth noting up front that success in this arena is hard won, and you should never count on it working until it has already proven successful for you. Like making art on commission, you’re going to have to grow an audience before anything financial can come from content creation. You’re going to need equipment, as well, which can end up being very costly. It is advised that you use inferior equipment early on so you don’t break the bank on what is ultimately a gamble. However, if you treat content creation as a hobby and continue to work a more secure job, you may be able to make it work for you. In order for this path to pay off, you’re going to need to find a unique pitch, or you’ll just blend into the crowd. A low barrier to entry means that your first idea will have been the first idea of someone who got their first.

Everyone needs to work to get by, but if you play your cards right, work doesn’t have to be the necessary evil it can often be. The internet provides us with more options and more control over the work that we do. With these examples in mind, you’re ready to find the job that fits your desires and your lifestyle.
