Make Money Online At Home In Your Pajamas

May 7, 2008
The number of people tired of their routine jobs appears to be on the increase, perhaps it is they feel as if they are going nowhere but whatever the reason, they are turning to making money online as an alternative. There is no "quick fix" answer to the profitable method either because we all have different skills and what will work well for one person might be a complete disaster for another.

The importance of your own skills in this cannot be underestimated so work out what they are because only two methods of online money making are used here to illustrate the potential available. There is never a need to overcomplicate the process when all you are doing is providing a service whereby people come to your site (for example) that need something which you can supply.

One of the most popular methods of making money online is by affiliate marketing where a person becomes an unpaid (commissions only) salesperson for a company, internet or otherwise and is paid for sales, or on occasion leads. Of course this has huge advantages for an affiliate marketer because all their efforts can be focused into generating sales and not the worry of running a company. What must be done is to find a company that is serious about their affiliate program so it isn't cancelled after you have put effort into building a site and traffic etc.

The percentage of the revenue given to an affiliate can be anywhere from a few percent (avoid these unless turnover is high) up to as much as 75 percent. The reason many people like affiliate marketing as a way to make money online is the fact they do not have to own or promote a product of their own so there is very little financial outlay involved.

Google also has its own program called adsense which uses content relevant adverts on websites and blogs to attract people to click on and is the second main method of making money online. A person opens an account with Google and whenever someone clicks on an advertising link they have supplied, you get a very small percentage of the amount the click is worth.

This is the system described very simply but you need huge numbers of visitors to your site (probably a number of sites) to generate an income. While almost anyone can join Google's program, care is needed as they are continually updating and amending their terms and conditions which will affect your revenue.

A small warning is worthwhile at this point as Google is very strict and will stop payment to anyone who breaches their terms and conditions so check them on a regular basis. There are many reasons why people desire to make money online; it maybe for earning extra income or just to making a living from working at home. Your success depends on some education in addition to other skills but if you do not get visitors to your site you cannot earn any money so do some studying on this subject for the many free online resources available to you. There are a host of websites which can help beginners (and experts alike) with advice, one such is www.warriorforum.com which most internet marketers join and a great deal of help and information can be found there. Fortunately, you do not need to be a computer wizard or even have a computer to make money online although having a pc does help.
