How to Earn Your Extra Money Online

Aug 17, 2007
If you can shoot a video camera or take a still picture, then you can earn extra money online. If you can type with ease, and if you have quality time to do lots of typing, then you might want to examine some of the ways to make some money. If you can write informative and sometimes exciting articles, then you surely have the ability to make prosper.

More and more websites have chosen to offer graphics, in the forms of video or still pictures. The owners of such websites seldom have time to obtain those videos and graphics themselves. They often buy the video and pictures from others.

There is nothing wrong with having others, with more knowledge and skills than you about any topic, do something you can't do. This is what great leaders do. Have others, better than them, do things they can't do. Their online needs can be seen by any viewer of the Internet. Their online needs have created a lucrative market for video and still pictures.

Many companies put out regular newsletters. They usually send those newsletters out by e-mail. Many such companies need to hire someone to type up such newsletters. Their needs create another market. An autoresponder and growing email list are the ways to go this route.

Other companies have a need for people to type up various reports. Some companies even pay to have others do copyrighted copies of typed reports. They want to cut down on the typos in those reports. Such needed services add to the many ways that one can earn extra online income.

Many websites are looking for added content. They seek information about all sorts of things. For example, one website has requested articles about the 50s and 60s. One website has started to look for articles about tires. A number of health related websites seek articles that deal with a particular health issue. All of those needs create new ways that a little persistence and effort can help one to earn extra money online.

Once one learns the ins and outs of providing a service or product to a website, then one can start saving money to invest in one's own website. Ownership of a website represents yet another way to make extra internet income. One should not, however, be hasty about how one approaches the set-up for one's website.

For example, one group in England started a website. They got different writers, and each writer got his or her own domain. The men in England then learned that having lots of domains attached to one website is not a good way to make money.

Those same website owners are now revising their approach. They are renaming their website. The new name will be something else more pertinent. They will offer articles that relate to the health of both men and women, both adults and children. The website owners are hoping that with this new set-up both they and the writers will have a better way to make more sales.

For success sake, I have seen and bought training from many sources, many quite good, that harped on having your website title relate and match your business or cause in the url and your website content. If they are unrelated you are throwing good money away in the trash.

The reason for this is no one will know what you are talking about. If they don't know what you are talking about or feel you don't know what you are talking about you will get no sales.

An article directory I regularly submitted articles to recently went broke for this very reason. The website was nice but unclear even though they had talented programmers. So, save thousands of dollars and have your website title, url and content related.

I guarantee you this is going to be one of the first things anyone who is good on the internet is going to tell you when you take virtually any marketing course.

So make an approach to a business and change it as you learn more about it. Don' quit. This is the only reason you will possibly fail in this new computer day and age.
