Making An Online Income For Your Retirement Isn’t Difficult
The Opportunities Are Practically Endless
The purpose of this website is to give you an idea of the vast and varied array of opportunities that exist if you are prepared to embrace the internet as a potential income source.
We also offer some guidance in choosing the best option based on your experience, interests, and income goals.
Here are some ideas to get you started.
Why Work Online?
There are so many benefits from working online;
- Work from the comfort of home
- Avoid the dreaded commute
- Option to work with your partner
- Work while traveling
- Set your own work schedule/hours
- Spend more time with family
- Physically less demanding
- Lower costs (typically)
- Work from anywhere in the world
- Safer work environment (in light of the pandemic)
At its most basic, all you need is a computer with an internet browser and an internet connection.
Depending on your choice of work you may also need to invest in some additional computer software and possibly some additional online training.
Who We Are
We are Colette and Philip Pepperell and a few years ago, possibly like you, we found ourselves approaching retirement age with too little income.
We had previously never even considered working online but, because of our personal circumstances at the time, such an idea suddenly had great appeal for us.
Back then we knew very little about the workings of the internet and we were definitely not very tech savvy but we were determined to make it work for us and our perseverance has since paid off.
We are now living comfortably in Mexico with our little chihuahua mix, Poucette.
If you are interested, you can read more about us here.
What We Do
We began with affiliate marketing and that continues to work well for us and by itself now provides us with the additional income we need to live comfortably here in Mexico.
But we have never been ones to rest on our laurels and our foray into affiliate marketing has led us to other income opportunities. As a result, Colette is now training (online) to be a proofreader while Philip is getting more into website design.
It’s early days but we believe both have the potential to be real money makers for us.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
I have a product or service that I want to sell. You offer to promote that product or service for me on the understanding that I will pay you a commission on every product or service sale that I make and which is directly attributable to your promotion.
That, in a nutshell, is affiliate marketing and you are now an affiliate marketer.
To get started you will first need to identify the area you want to work in (your niche) as well as some online merchants who are selling the products or services you want to promote and who have an affiliate program in place. Then build your website and start promoting.
It is, of course, a little more involved than that, but that is the essence of affiliate marketing.
Affiliate Marketing Training
We are members of Wealthy Affiliate which is an online platform providing extensive training in all aspects of affiliate marketing.
It provides tools and step-by-step guidance for you to build your own website (which you will use to promote products and services) and a hosting service for that website.
There is excellent technical support as well as a very active and supportive community of members who freely offer their advice and guidance on any issues you may have. Many of those members are themselves close to, or already in, retirement and can easily relate to the issues that others in a similar situation might have.

Beware of Online Scams
As you have likely already experienced more than once, there are many sharks operating on the internet whose sole purpose is to deprive you of your money.
We will show you some of the scams we have come across and offer tips on how to avoid scams in the first place.
As will be evident from many of the articles you will come across on this website, we are not fans of multi-level marketing.
While we acknowledge that some people do make sizable incomes from such schemes, statistics show that between 95% and 99% of participants either make no money or actually lose money.
We have investigated many and have not found one that we come even close to recommending.
Our advice is to avoid multi-level marketing as though it were the plague.
