Aug 17, 2007
Around the world, countless hopeful ask the question -- or at least ponder it silently in their head. Can you make money online?

They dream of living a life of freedom. Free from the nine to five ball and chain. Free from the mind-numbing commute. Free from financial worries.

They dream of working from the comfort of their home -- or sitting on a beach in a tropical paradise. But the question remains. Can you make money online? Is it more than just a dream?

== Is The Dream Here To Stay? Or Is It Just A Wishful Dream? ==

Every few months, another doom-sayer comes out of the woodwork and forecasts the end of small business on the Internet. The big businesses will take over. Small businesses don't stand a chance.

What should you make of these prophets of gloom and doom?

It was just a few years ago that others were predicting the end of the Internet itself. And, it should be quite clear by now that the Internet is here to stay. Business on the Internet is also here to stay.

Every month, more and more consumers are coming onto the Internet ... and they are shopping. They are buying! The convenience of online shopping increases every year. New payment processors make it safe and simple to use credit cards online. Broadband connections over fast fiber-optic cables make it easy to download large files containing e-books, audio, video, or software.

As more and more services become available, shopping on the Internet is becoming a natural part of many people's lives. It is a convenience that is rapidly becoming a habit.

But, can you make money online?
