Money, money, money. We all LOVE it. To everyone it represents power, freedom and happiness. Money makes the world go around.
For many online marketers, this has become a reality. They all have one thing in common. They claimed their stake in the online world.
The web is now bigger than it ever was. Heck, it's already the fastest, coolest, easiest-to-use way to do online purchases as well as interact with anyone on the globe!
This has opened a massive new world for entrepreneurs to make money from the internet, purely because the internet is filled with activity! The internet is SO interactive that dozens of ways have surfaced for people to make a profit from it.
So how do you claim your piece of Multi Trillion Dollar eCommerce pie?
I'll now outline the several ways in which you can make money on the internet, starting with the lowest paying, to the highest paying. While the lower payment methods will not make you rich, they can add some extra money in your pocket. The highest paying methods will unduly have you smiling all the way to the bank.
Method 1 – Surveys
Surveys typically involve you sitting in front of your PC answering an endless amount of questions. Survey companies do pay money, but not nearly enough to help you pay serious bills. Females are the # 1 target of survey companies, simply because filling out surveys are non-techie. Women like that type of thing. You can start earning money with surveys right off the bat, but please do not make this your sole source of income. Make sure the survey company is legit by Googling their name. You can also ask around in forums.
Method 2 – Data Entry
Pretty much the same as surveys. Data Entry though pays a way better than surveys, but it's difficult to justify it's payment with the amount of work needed to be done. You'll have to fill in hours upon hours of information into online forms. Most people end up being institutionalized because of doing data entry.
Just kidding. If you are someone that loves sitting around the house all day and you love typing, then data entry programs are perfect for you. Just make sure you sign up to reputable programs. Google a bit and find out what other people recommend.
OK so the above methods do make money online, but they have 2 major flaws. One being that the payments are extremely low and secondly, you have to work like a farmer going broke.
So are there any other solutions that can help you make more money online than you thought possible?
Yes there are!
Method 3 – Create your own information product
Info products are what makes internet marketers millionaires. But only a select few internet marketers really make the cut. Developing your own product can be a simple process, or it can be a horrible experience. Are you familiar with the PDF? Most online marketers start out by writing an ebook about something that helps people solve their problems.
Then they join a merchant account as well as an affiliate network and try to promote their product online. Most of them fail because they lack a list of high profile contacts. I'm referring to JV Partners. JV Partners are existing valuable people who can help you successfully launch a product. They can drive thousands of prospects to your product sales page in a few hours because they usually own a HUGE list of prospects which they can email information to.
The trouble is getting them to promote your product. It's not easy and most of them simply ignore you. It was easier a few years ago, but today it is extremely difficult getting a high profile player to help you out.
You'll be left all alone. Do not get me wrong. Having your own product certainly puts money in the bank FAST and by the pile, but making it very BIG is a different story. You'll need to network with some high profile people by visiting forums or even adding them on Facebook. Then have a normal conversation with them. Do not ask about product promotions. Always ask if you can do something for them first. Once you have established a good relationship, THEN you can move onto phase 2 where you ask them if they can help you out by asking them if they can promote you.
Method 4 – Affiliate Marketing
This method is my personal favorite and earns me the most. There are hundreds of affiliates who are making more money per year than the highest paid doctors. Top super affiliates earn more than $ 2 Million per year. This just shows you that the power of affiliate marketing is beyond belief.
So what is affiliate marketing? It's very simple, yet deadly effective. It's a simple system where you promote other people's or companies' product on the internet. You do not need to own or stock the products. You simply grab the referral link from the company's free affiliate program and then promote their website / product. If someone clicks through the link and makes a purchase on the other side, you'll make a commission.
You might be doubful and think that people will not buy, but you will not believe how many really do. Millions of people go online each and every day and more than 50% of them purchase at least one item. It has been estimated that 1 out of every 100 people will usually buy something. Now do you know how easy it is to get thousands of people to read your "pre-sell" and click through your affiliate link? It's very easy.
Affiliate Marketing is honest and legit and you too can make serious money by taking action today. Almost every single online "money making" program will be in the form of an affiliate program. Even Google's contextual advertising system is an affiliate program.
The above 4 methods encompasses all the ways in which you can make money online and so it's up to you to choose which one will fit you the best.
