Delivery driver jobs are always a steady paycheck and the nice thing about being a driver, is that you usually have some flexibility to your hours.
Whether you drive a truck or deliver pizza’s, flowers, local commerce or whatever it may be, you can usually can pick your job and schedule.
Now if you’ve got to make a lot of money to support a mortgage payment or family, then this can be a tough job. Many hours on the road stuck in one position makes for some long hauls and usually some associated back pain.
But if this isn’t the case and you have some freedom to your schedule, you could have an excellent opportunity to create a side business that could eventually turn into a full time online business.
It could replace your job as a delivery driver and leave you more free time and a better income.

Delivery Driver Jobs To Working At Home
Rick was a local driver in my neighborhood that had a pretty decent job. He worked some long hours, but usually just 3 – 4 days per week.
He also had a family and a mortgage payment and knew that as he was getting older, his body was having a tougher time dealing with long hauls up the coast of California. He would come home after 12 hours of work, exhausted and with a fair amount of back pain.
He started realizing that this wasn’t going to be a good long-term fit for him as he got older, and so he started looking for other options to make money.
He eventually started snooping around online and found a program called Wealthy Affiliate. He started in on some free classes and basically started writing product reviews for various products.
Things like the latest computers, cell phones, hunting equipment, then went on to promote some medical devices and even vacation packages.
After about 7 months of writing various reviews, the money stated coming in.
How did Rick go from delivery driver to online entrepreneur?
He started learning about affiliate marketing and how to leverage affiliate marketing within his product reviews. Every time Rick wrote a product review, he would add an affiliate links to send the customer over to the sales page of the product.
The more reviews he wrote, the more Google and other search engines started recognizing him as an authority website for product reviews. This resulted in higher rankings and soon Rick’s site started popping up on the first page of Google.
Rick then was getting a good amount of traffic to his site, and that traffic lead to commissions from his affiliate relationships. And that lead to….More Paychecks!
What Did this University Teach Him?
We’ll the first thing he would talk about is how blessed he felt to have stumbled upon this company called Wealthy Affiliate. He explained to me that it was like an online university with easy to follow video classes. They taught him how to build a website, write product reviews, and produce quality content for his site.
They also taught him how to use WordPress and make his site look professional. He just followed their daily classes on his days off and started to create a nice review site.
How’d This Changed Rick’s Life?
Like I said, after about 7 months of working his part time online business, he was able to see his hard work pay off. He started receiving commissions for his affiliate referrals. As he continued to repeat this process, he continued to see more traffic to his site and he started to see, that’s right, more money.
Within a few more months, Rick had quit his job and was working full time from home as an internet marketer. His income surpassed 5,000 dollars a month and he eventually sold his home, bought a new F150 and bought a nicer home in the countryside.
What Was Rick’s Secret?
He was a nice and honest guy. He had a simple and easy way of explaining things to people and internet shoppers really respond to genuine, authentic people. That’s it.
He wrote quality reviews and he made his points clear and was honest about the products he reviewed, nothing more.
Does This Apply To You?
Deliver driver jobs can be a great way to make some extra money because of the flexibility they offer. If you can get by on 20 – 36 hours a week, you can take that extra time and work on your own online business.
All’s it takes is motivation to improve your life or better your future.
I haven’t seen Rick for a while now, but the last time we spoke he was extremely proud and happy about the choices he made.
He went from working long hours with back pain to waking up comfortably at whatever time he likes.
He doesn’t have to rush off to work cause he works from home. He’s his own boss and has created his own fortune. Good for you Rick.
