Making Money On The Web

Oct 7, 2007
It's true "most people don't want to work" is a universal truth. So, if you don't want to work, why are you selling yourself into slavery for relatively low pay? You might as well get the most out of something that you dislike doing. I've never seen any clerk who is happy where he/she is. They usually complain about low salaries and too much work. If you're getting paid to work (something you don't want to do) doesn't it make sense to aim for something higher?

There are plenty of opportunities for making money in the internet. You can do this for something on the side, or, you can make it your full time job. It just depends on how much time you want to commit to earning money in a rather easy manner. As for myself, why am I writing this article for relatively low pay? Well the dollar has a pretty high value from where I am sitting. If I worked in an office, I wouldn't be earning as much I am now.

The point is that you need to maximize your earning potential. If you happen to be in a country like mine whose local currency is struggling against the dollar, then doing this writing job will earn you more than you normally would in day at the office. As far as potential earnings in the internet is concerned, there are plenty of avenues and opportunities to choose from.

The first opportunity with the most potential for earning big bucks is by turning yourself into internet salespersons. Unlike salespeople of the physical world, you don't have to go around the city commuting, sweating, huffing, puffing and talking your throat sore. All you need to do is to choose a form of internet marketing that you think you can be good at. Once you do make your choice, exhaust all the possibilities until you get very positive results. Nothing good comes out of something half-baked.

A fast way to earn a commission is by affiliating yourself with major vendor sites. You sign for their program and they will give you instructions to set up an affiliate account. Basically, you promote the vendor site and their products in your own website or in articles that you write and submit to ezines. You will need to place links into your website or ezine article that will lead to the site or product you are promoting.

If you decide to go into affiliate marketing, you will also need to learn how to compose search engine optimized (SEO) articles. The web is teeming with instructions on SEO composition. These articles will help you with search engine results. They will contain keywords that the search engine will identify and index according to its relevance to the searcher's query and your article.

Then, there are the make fast money programs which you have to pay for before you can join. (`nuff said)

By the way, don't be fooled by those paid to read email advertisements. One does pay you to just read but it sends an average of one email a day and gives out 2 cents. Other similar programs require you to accept offers or deals from the sites that they advertise before they give out cash.
