Most of the readers of this article already know how to use the Internet. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be here now. This article is written for those who still don’t know how to use the Internet, its abilities, facilities, tools and information to make a better living for themselves and their family.
The least advantage that the internet can have is saving time and money. Let’s see how internet can do it.
1- You can order several things through the internet. If you learn how to do it, you will not have to go out for buying everything you need. It has become possible to buy almost everything through the internet. Just visit Google and make some searches. You will see that you can order everything from food to golf club through the internet.
So it saves you a lot of time and money if you learn to use the internet to make your orders. The computer that I am typing this article with it, my printer, even the chair and table is ordered through the internet. I have not left the home to waste several hours to go to the shops, look for what I want, discuss with the salesmen, stay in the line to pay and … .
There is nothing that you can not find in the internet to buy. Just take a look at eBay and search the items. You can find anything from small toys to big lands and cars in eBay to buy. You can even sell your car, house and land in eBay without having to see the buyers.
2- You can pay your bills through the internet. I also pay all my bills through the internet and online banking. You receive several bills every month. Receiving them is a problem because nobody becomes happy when he/she receives a bill and spending some time to go to the bank and pay them is an extra problem.
Just call your bank and ask them to setup your online banking account. In most banks it is free and in some of them you have to pay a very low monthly fee for the online banking. When they setup your online banking account, you can not only pay your bills but you will be able to check your account balance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 day a year.
You can even pay anybody else who has an account in the same bank as you, through the online banking. For example I pay some of the programmers who work for me through the online banking.
If you can not pay them through your online banking account, you can pay them through PayPal definitely.
3- You can find any information that you need through the internet.
If you love to follow the news and events, nothing can help you better than the internet. There are a lot of good and well-known news websites that you can find any news about any country and anything in them: Google news, Yahoo news, CNN, FoxNews
If you are interested in research and scientific subjects, you can search and find anything you like. In the past you had to go to the library and spend lots of time looking for the right book and journal. Now everything is accessible from home if you want.
4- You can sign up for online education programs, study from home and improve your knowledge, skill and career position.
Yes, you can even educate from home. Online universities have become so popular and you can earn many different degrees from home and through the internet. You can even choose the weekend classes and so you will not have to quit your full time job to attend the online classes.
5- You can find new friends, keep in touch with friends and relatives, meet those who are far from you using a webcam, find your future wife or husband and … . You just need to learn how to use the internet for any purposes that you have. You can even find jobs through the free and paid job boards.
6- There are a lot of other things that can be done through the internet and I can not talk about all of them here: playing games, watching videos, listening to music and … .
