There's plenty of ways to make money online, just don't ever pay anyone or any company to show you how.
No ones going to show you how to take money out of their pocket, and if they are charging in the first place, that means their main income is off of
"training" not making money online.
Makes sense... what things do you do online without paying money to join? adsense? All ideas appreciated... I need to work from home, my residence is
in a rural area and my health will not allow for heavy lifting like scrap metal or mowing lawns... There are so many scams to make money.. I nned to
know what is REALLY working.... looking forward to your post.
A good place to learn how to make money online is www.warriorforum.com...
. There's lots of free advice there and lots of internet
marketing ideas. The ebook in my signature is a result of someone pointing me to the warrior forum several years ago.
I used to sell crystals and gemstones on ebay and built up a great rapport with many repeat customers. Many of them would email and ask me more
questions about what they'd bought and it became quite time consuming replying to everyone individually. I wrote an ebook and sent a link to
download it to everyone that won/bought from me. I didn't charge for the ebook because I didn't know much about internet marketing then.
One of my customers told me about internet marketing and suggested I add affiliate links to the ebook and sell it on ebay so I researched affiliate
marketing like mad - you don't need to pay anyone for that information because it is freely available on the net and especially in the warrior forum.
I added some links and started selling the ebook on ebay until they banned everyone from selling them!
Now I've gone back to giving the ebook away to everyone that wants it and let them give it away to whoever they want to because it contains affiliate
links and I earn a commission if anyone clicks the link and buys something. No pressure selling required - if people are interested in the subject
and only want to read the ebook then that's fine but if they want to buy something related and I provided the link then I'm obviously happy to earn
Everyone has a subject they're knowledgeable about so everyone can write at least one ebook and recommend some online sites to earn a commission.
Some people make a full time income doing it but I didn't start out wanting to earn money from mine - I just wanted a simple way to give my ebay
customers more information without taking up too much time. My own ebook probably needs updating again and I definitely need to check for dead links
so posting in this thread has pushed me on to making that a priority. People are still downloading and sharing my ebook, a few years later, so I
still get commissions even though I haven't actively done anything with it for a couple of years!
You can get a free website, to upload the ebook, so people can easily download it (I use freewebs.com - no html knowledge required). After you've
written one you might want to write more about different topics and if you really get the bug for it you could seriously get into the internet
marketing stuff. Just don't be scammed into paying money to someone that promises you'll be a millionaire next year.
You can download free ebooks about affiliate marketing and how to create your own ebooks from
Hope that info is useful to someone. I'll be happy to answer U2Us as and when I have time because I'm all for sharing information and helping
others for free. Someone gave me the information for free and helped me get started and I like to pay it forwards.
