This is how you do it.

More than ever people want to be able to do more from home. Order food, get groceries delivered, learn new skills, run businesses and make money. It is easier to do than it was ten years ago. The internet has opened up our world and given us more opportunities than ever.  But maybe you aren’t using yours as much as you could be.

There are a lot of ways you can better yourself from right behind the computer screen, let’s take a look at some of them.Getting yourself some social media training – for free. There are plenty of courses you can take from some of the biggest names in social media scheduling and management. HootSuite, Buffer, and Coursera, to name just three. You can also hit up google and get training in e-commerce, analytics, Adwords and so much more. They have a learning programme you can do on your own time and add it to your CV.

If you have skills that you can pass on, then you can set up a course to sell on Udemy, an online portal where people go to learn new skills at home.

You can also turn your skills into profit by signing up for a few online freelance websites like Freelancer, Upwork, People Per Hour and more. You set up a profile, a price and you can apply for work or just wait for some offers. You are likely to make more money if you actively approach job posters.

Perhaps you have watched a few movies and seen some seriously high rollers in and want to start learning CFD trading, which is totally possible to do online and in your own time.

The key to either kickstarting a new career, getting yourself ready to ask for a raise or promotion or launch a business is learning new skills and keeping yourself ahead of the crowd. The internet gives us no excuses to sit back and say we don’t have the opportunities anymore, and the amount of courses that are free and also very beneficial from big-name companies is rising every month.

So here are a few tips for getting yourself on track:

  • Decide what it is you want to get out of the courses, do you want to learn a new skill just because you can or is there a goal?
  • What would be the priority order of the courses you want to take, in other words, start with the one that is going to benefit you most, not the one that looks like the most fun.
  • Can you be sure to dedicate time to the course? Set aside some time each week that you will use only for online learning.
  • Be sure to read the descriptions; some courses only release a certificate if you pay for it. Some have hidden costs, and others are genuinely free.
  • Set up a new email address specifically for your course updates and lessons.

Overall the primary goal should be to make the most of you internet, by supersizing your skills and wallet.
