Millions of people around the world are turning to the Internet to increase their source of income to manage rising expenses. It’s understandable as the Internet provides a legitimate avenue for making money – and the money can be quite healthy.
I have been active online since 2008 when I started writing articles for Blogs and websites and only recently expanded into other areas of online marketing. Therefore, you could say I am a relative Internet marketing NEWBIE.
It’s been an exciting journey as I’ve been able to earn money online simply by pursuing one or more of the following proven “getting started” options:
- Sell items you do not require any more on eBay. Try to stick to items which sell well such as electronics, video games, and Webkin. You can also buy products on eBay and then put them back up for resale. Do your research first before submitting any item for sale so your pricing is always realistic.
- Become an Affiliate for a variety of different products and services. Most Affiliate programs are free so all you have to do is sign up and start promoting their products through different channels such as blogs, Facebook, etc that you have access to. You should also include your Affiliate links wherever possible in the content you produce for forum posts, blogs, social networks, etc. Product reviews work well so give that a go as well. When a sale is made, you will receive immediate notification and compensation is credited into your account, sometimes within days.
- Develop website content (my passion). If you have good writing skills and able to submit articles on time, then many website owners will be willing to pay you to produce content for their websites. To begin with, start writing articles at no cost on a part time basis on weekends and publish these to get your name out there. Progressively you will attract paying customers and, as demand builds, you can consider doing this on a full time basis. It’s all extra money
- Create eBooks on any subject you have an interest in – and make it available online through services such as Clickbank as well as through Amazon. Once again, payment on all sales is sent directly to your account.
There’s nothing difficult with the above. Millions around the world are already doing exactly as I have done. Age is not a barrier – and nor is computer expertise.
You can start off with any or all of the above at no or low cost and very quickly. There’s nothing to be afraid of!
You don’t have to do everything tomorrow. In fact, walk before you run by focusing on one area!
My recommendation is to focus on an area for which you have a passion. In my case, that was writing content for financial websites as that is an area I enjoy and now have paying clients. As you develop your skills, you can expand into other aspects of making money online as I have done.
Give it a go. It’s a fun way to make extra money!
