So right now you’re probably thinking to yourself, “what’s the easy way to make money online?”
I’m going to gladly tell you that there is absolutely no easy way to make money online.
The only tried and true way is via hard work, dedication, and a lot of perseverance.
Sure, there are a million and one programs out there that advertise “thousands on autopilot” but… the only person who is making thousands on autopilot is the guy who created that scam. Thousands of dollars from hard-working, honest people like yourself.
It’s extremely unfortunate that the online world is such a dangerous place for your pocketbook, especially when you’re only looking to increase its thickness. But the cold reality of it is, there are more people out there that want to only take your money and offer nothing useful in return than there are who are willing to give you the information you need to succeed without asking for cash up front.
So now we’re thinking “If there is no easy way to make money online, what’s the other way?”
The other way really isn’t as bad as it sounds, trust me. I may have mentioned something about honest, hard work, but don’t worry, it’s a lot better than giving away thousands of your hard earned dollars to get zip, zero, zilch in return.
There’s definitely a lot of ways one could go about making legitimate money online, but very few that require little to no technical experience. Within this abundance of options, there is definitely an “easy way” and there is a definite “hard way”.
Our new “easy way to make money online” actually requires little to no technical experience like stock trading for example, and requires you to have nothing more than a passion for something, it could be anything.
What I’m talking about is affiliate marketing.
The term affiliate marketing is one which is becoming more and more popular among more and more people as more and more reputable companies join the lists of publishers.
It refers to marketing the product of another company, which entail will pay you a reasonable commission on each sale.
Literally, anything you can think of will have an affiliate program. Whether you’re contemplating something from Apple(iPhone, iPad, MacBooks, whatever) or deals from Groupon, or anything and everything in between, there is an affiliate program for it.
“But how do I market an iPhone?”
That’s actually a really good question, thanks for asking!
It’s actually a lot easier to do this than you’re currently thinking. That’s why I consider affiliate marketing the “easy way to make money online”
For starters, you’re going to need a “niche” or a “profitable corner of the market”
A niche could be anything from “Apple” a specific product, like an iPhone or an iPad, or even a specific model, like an iPhone 5s or whatever, you get the picture, I’m sure. Anything can be a niche.
That being said, you’re not going to want to go “too broad” or limit yourself by being too targeted. I explain this more in another post, here
Once we have our niche selected, we’re going to want a way to market these products or services..
For that, we’re going to want a website, as it’s by far the best way to sell an item online in this manner. With today’s options, this is actually a lot more convenient as well.
Web hosting providers have dropped their pricing dramatically over the years to a very competitive range.
BUT, that competitive pricing has also brought A LOT of poor service to the table, along with poor advertising, and unreliable servers, today’s web hosting providers have a lot of “unhappy campers.”
If done right, you will definitely become a “wealthy affiliate.” There are over 2 BILLION people using the internet PER DAY. Those numbers are insane! That is a potential customer flow that you would never ever achieve running a business in the busiest part of New York City.
There is also a website online which offers you the best web hosting, an extremely vast array of training sessions, courses, classrooms, webinars, live chat, and all of the good stuff, if you’re actually interested in learning about affiliate marketing, that is.
They also offer you an absolutely free starter account so you can really try out their service and you don’t jump in too deep too quick.
A lot of other services out there like Wealthy Affiliate will make you pay stupid amounts of upfront cash, and hide half of their actual fee’s until you’ve already paid out half of your months wages. Then you’re forced to hustle their scam program on other people in hopes that they’ll buy your lies and make you dirty commissions.
That’s not to say you couldn’t promote Wealthy Affiliate, but they don’t expect you or push you to in any way. WA is about making money for you, and you alone.
This not NOT THE CASE at Wealthy Affiliate, while working through the first course, you’re taught that there really is no easy way to make money online.
Instead, you’re taught how to start your own website using WordPress, implement white hat SEO tactics and eventually generate revenue with said website(s). Which might sound simple but trust me, you’ll be thankful you have the guidance of people who are already successful marketers, along with a vast amount of information (a lot of which is very scarce online) pertaining to anything and everything marketing/SEO/web design!!
The information you get when combined with the support is literally invaluable. You will find everyone from very experienced and successful internet marketers, to people who are starting out with absolutely 0 technical experience aside from checking their emails and browsing the web.
There is no real “easy way” to make money online, and anyone who tries to sell you that idea is blatantly lying to you. There is no such thing as “autopilot thousands” or anything. Generally, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
That being said, there are definitely ways which you could make money online, this post obviously only outlines one of many, But affiliate marketing is honestly where everyone should start.
Although I have made it seem very easy and almost fool-proof in this blog, it is actually quite the challenging process, and what I said at the start sticks, it is going to take a lot of hard work. It might be the easy way to actually make money online, but its definitely easy when compared to being scammed out of hundreds or even thousands.
