Making money online used to pretty much require you to have your own Web site, products to sell and some marketing palava. But a new generation of dot-coms have arisen that will pay you for what you know and who you know without you having to be a web designer or a marketing genius.
But it's hard to tell hype from the real deal. I did a search on "make money online" and "making money online", and much of the information out there is just promoting various infoproducts, mostly about Internet marketing. I see why people sometimes ask, "Is anyone making money online besides Internet marketing experts?"
How To Make Money Via The Internet Try Any of The Following:
A growing number of sites will pay for your articles or blog posts. Some "pay for performance" based on page views for just about anything you want to write about. Articles on specific topics they're looking for can earn direct payments up to about $200. The rates are probably low for established writers, but if you're trying to break into the field and have time on your hands, they're a great way to start. Also, a lot of companies are looking for part-time bloggers. They may pay per post or on a steady contract.
Start your own blog.
My 'Padi' You don't have to have your own Web site, or install blogging software, or even figure out how to set up an advert. At Blogger you can set up a blog for free in less than five minutes without knowing a thing about web design, and Blogger even automates setting up GOOGLE ADSENSE so you can make money off your blog by displaying ads and getting paid when people click on the ads. To make even more money from it, set up an affiliate program You'll have to get a lot of traffic to become a six-figure blogger, but pick an interesting topic, write well, tell all your friends, and you're off to a good start.
Advertise other people's products.
If you already have a Web site or a blog, look for advertisers that offer related but non-competing products and see if they have an affiliate program. Stick to familiar products and brands - they're easier to sell. To promote those products:
*.Place simple text or graphical ads in appropriate places on your site
*.Include links to purchase products you review or recommend in a blog, discussion forum or mailing list you control
*.Create a dedicated sales page or Web site to promote a particular product, They all work - it just depends on how much time you have to spend on it and your level of expertise with Web design and marketing.
