Automated Income -Is It Really Possible?

Aug 17, 2007
If you have been searching the internet for a work at home program that can bring you an automated income, then I am sure you have come across many affiliate marketing systems. They all claim the same thing - once you set it up-you can make money even while you sleep Just buy this one program or Ebook and you will make $300.00 a day, an automated income you can just set and forget

I always approach these systems with some healthy skepticism. If it really is as easy to make this automated income from home, why are not more people doing it? Who would not want to go to work in their pajamas? If all that is necessary is typing in a few lines of data on a simple form and then 20 minutes later, money starts rolling into your bank account, why are not more people doing it? I am sure easy money from an automated income system appeals to everyone.

I have my own ideas. First of all, things are never as easy as these automated income programs would have you believe. There is always more involved. The biggest risk I see is the advertising costs. In order to make money, you need to sell something. I do not care if it is a product or information product. In order to make money-you will be selling. Maybe not direct selling, but selling nevertheless. In order to a successful salesperson, you need to find a product that people want to buy and that there is a market for. It does not need to be the most popular product on the internet, but an automated income will only come if you find a product that people want to buy and will continue to want to buy.

The second thing important in affiliate marketing is advertising and advertising costs. Keywords are an important part of this because keywords are how people are going to find you to buy the product that you are selling. This will generate you an automated income. If you do not have effective keywords, you will either pay for a lot of clicks that get you nowhere or break your advertising budget before you break even. Research is the key to finding effective keywords. You need to research the product you are trying to sell before advertising it and find the best and mst inexpensive keywords possible.

I do believe that an automated income from the internet is possible for everyone. But it will not happen over night and there is more work involved then typing a few words into an online form. But with practice and the right automated income program, you can be a successful affiliate marketer. In order to not break your budget, I would suggest starting out slowly. The best way to learn what automated income program will work best for you is trial and error. If you do purchase a program that shows you how to set up automated income streams, I suggest you follow the directions given in the program to the letter at first. Copy what has worked before making your own personal adjustments. And do not give up. It is possible to generate automated income streams online.
