Make Money Online For Newbie

Jan 31, 2008
Have you spent spent hours searching online affiliate programs or how a newbie can make real money online?

After failing with many online survey companies and submitting hundreds of entries to "online lotteries", I had almost come to the conclusion that in order to work from home via the internet with a decent income you have to be in IT or just have great "tech" skills.

Being new to making money on the internet, most newbies will fall for at least one "get rich quick" idea. Many of these get rich quick schemes are like buying fake jewelry from a street vendor. Their sales pitch was great and even though it seemed 'to good to be true', you think you have gotten a great deal. Then, after trying on your new jewelry, you notice that the gold is only paint on the surface and that other than the great outside appearance, you have bought something of almost no value. It's no wonder many newbies are giving up trying to find ways to make money online.

While the internet is saturated with websites offering "make money filling out surveys" or "data entry employment", there are a few that offer good value. People are now getting more involved in Internet Marketing and promoting software and digital products along with many other items.

Even with Affiliate Marketing being a great place for newbies to get their feet wet, many will find themselves wondering what they should sell? You will achieve success by coosing just one Niche market to start and giving it 100%. The leading causes to failure in Affiliate marketing is that people get sidetracked half way into a project or decide to throw in the towel after a few unsuccessful attempts.

When researching campaigns, many people feel they need to run many campaigns at the same time. This causes them to spread themselves too thin and often they will be too worn out to continue before seeing a profit. With the Internet full of fierce competition, it's advisable to focus on one niche market at a time than to be a "Jack of all trades"

If you're a newbie looking to join a trusted and successful Affiliate marketing website, they're out there and you just need to look around. It's best to find one that requires a membership as many of the free sites attract scammers and spammers who prey on people looking to make a living online. I registered for more than 25 free sites before learning that the sites you pay member fees for, ultimately have the best value.

If you do fall victim to a scam, take the experience and learn from it. It's the people that continue to apply themselves that ultimately succeed.
