There are a number of reasons why someone would want to begin the journey to make money online and what that exact reason happens to be is not important. Whether it is to save money for your child graduation or to just bring a few extra bucks into the household what is important that you are willing to put in the work. During this article we are going to cover a number of ways to make money online briefly and the chances of each actually working
Make Money Online With Surveys
Now we have all seen the ads promising hundreds of dollars for taking surveys and to say they are misleading is being nice. it is possible to make money online with survey but the dollar amounts are much less than what the Facebook ads proclaim. I belong to a number of survey sites and on average I bring in fifteen to twenty dollars a month. Not exactly earth-shattering amounts but they are paid out in Amazon gift cards that I used to buy books. I should make it clear I spend maybe forty-five minutes to an hour a week on taking surveys. My mom belongs to a site where for each survey you complete you are awarded ballots which you can use on a wide variety of items. So far she has one a laptop and some sort of kitchen appliance whose name is escaping me at the moment. I have never won anything on the same site. So you can make money online with surveys just not a whole heck of a lot
Make Money Online By Blogging
This is a rather tricky category as it is definitely possible to make money online with blogging but it is going to take some time. When it comes to blogging for money it breaks down to two potential sources for revenue. The first one being by advertising with a system such as Google Adsense where you are paid by the number of people viewing the ad and by the number of people clicking the ad. The main problem with Google Adsense is that it does not pay that well for general advertisements. Like we are talking a buck for a thousand views territory.
The other way to make money online with blogging is by selling items to your readers which is in affiliate marketing territory which we will look at next. Basically you promote an item to your readers from lets say Amazon, the person goes to Amazon purchases said item and you make a small commission. This tends to work well when the item is related to the topic of your blog. If you are running a Mommy blog and attempt to sell a chainsaw chances it is not going to sell well.
As you can tell the success of making money online with blogging is going to come down to traffic which can take some time to develop. The good news is the potential income is incredible but the bad news is it will not happen overnight.
Make Money Online With Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is basically selling a product where you will earn a commission. Affiliate marketing has the most upside when compared to surveys or blogging. The goal here is to attract people to your website, promote that product, hopefully they purchase that product and you earn a commission. Now that product does not have to be a physical item as it could be for a membership site or a service.
Affiliate marketing may sound daunting on the surface however when it is broken down to smaller steps it is quite achievable. There are costs when it comes to affiliate marketing but there are methods to keep that costs at a minimum. My entire costs for all of my websites is less than fifty dollars per month with the addition of the occasional fifteen bucks a year for a domain name thanks to Wealthy Affiliate. I will break down the steps to affiliate marketing in a future article.
