Real Ways To Make Money Online


Today we are going to discuss real ways to make money online. This is a question posted by our member. Here’s his question:

“I have been working on the internet for 4 years now, seriously, trying to find something that really makes money and as of yet I haven’t made but $1. I’ve read books and more books about internet marketing and MLM and Google and on and on but no matter how many ads I place on over 20 sites, either I get no response or I get someone wanting to sell me something. What should I do?” – Ken Drake

Ken, you said that you are seriously trying to find something that really makes money online. But based on what I read from what you’ve written, you are seriously trying to find ‘quick’ ways to make money, not real ways to make money online.

Sorry for being blatant. I arrive at this conclusion because your experience tells me that all you know is about placing ads trying to make money. That sounds like the common ‘get rich quick’ idea – “Just Signup And Advertise, And Your Will Be Rich”.

It’s not your fault. Most people are like you. They want to make fast money online.

Can you make money with this method? Yes you can. Many of my clients make money that way. But you need to spend money to test which salescopy works, which product works, etc.

Many people don’t do enough testing and they quit too soon. Moreover, if you are on low budget, you may run out of money before you find a gold mine.

I can’t say it’s not a real way to make money online. This method of making money online simply require more skills than simply posting an ad.

Personally, I feel that your #1 mistake is that you are not building an online business.

Take my advice, stop thinking of making money and start thinking of building a business.

I spend money to develop the “Mind Your Own Business” list builder script and give it free to our members because I want our members to start building a real online business. Have you seriously given it a look?

I’m not saying the list builder script is the only real way to make money online. But it’s the way I recommend. Build your own list, run your own affiliate program and sell your own product. You can use your initial sales to fund your future advertising campaign. With your own list, you can also sell other people’s products.

Making money through this method is not without challenge. The main challenge is that you have to think of a good business idea. A poor idea will give you mediocre results, but an good idea can make you very rich in a short time.

If you are someone who aren’t too creative and not interested to think too much, a simpler way to make money online is Google Adsense. You don’t have to know how to write effective sales letter. You don’t have to do any form of customer support. It’s by far the simplest and truly autopilot way to make money online.

Click here to see how I started making money with Google Adsense. No creativity needed. Just keep working and result is almost guaranteed.

When I feel uncreative, bored and tired, I usually simply ‘waste’ my time away building Adsense sites. I don’t have to think too much. Just work – like a robot.

Last but not least, you mentioned that you’ve read many books on internet marketing. If you do, trust me, you already know the real ways to make money online. The real ways to make money online are the ways that you are most reluctant to follow. If you don’t believe, make a list of all the ways to make money online and arrange them in order of preference. Take your least preferred method and start working hard on it. You’ll be surprised that is when you start making real money online!

    It’s funny you say about building a website and then just ading affiliate links to your website so you have your own show site as I might call it and then put affitliate links so when they click on your site the affiliate site comes up!!

    For example I love music and playing guitar but I don’t have none of my own video lessons but by having a domain name and putting an affiliate link too match what my wbsite is about I wouldn’t need to have my owen guitar lessons I could use someone elses clickbank link and when they purchase the product I would get paid a prcentage of that site or I could charge my on price since it’s my website and then make sure that the costomer geqts the link that they purchased you could make a fortune on this!!

      What I mean is an info-rich website, like a website about guitar playing. Promote affiliate products as a form of recommendation.

      The idea is not to build something specifically for a product. This is because if a product flop, what you’ve built will become obsolete. But if you have your own info-rich site, you can always change the product you want to promote. And all your previous effort of building traffic is not wasted.

    I still have that mindset-14 years later!!! Great info.

    “Though there is no guarantee that every venture will turn out to be a success, all I need is one successful venture to make a killing online.”

    1. Jimmy West

      I feel your pain I’m in a venture now and I figure if it doesn’t work out I’m just going to build my own site that way I know I’m getting paid not relying on others paying me

  6. Jimmy West

    Hey Keneth thank you for the advice you gave me tell me what do you think about just buying an info product and then changing it with your sigmnature style. I’m just a little timid when it comes too actually building my own website myself.

    Thank You

    Hi Kenneth – The only thing that has always put me off re. Adsense is and this is to my mind, I would welcome Your response. Don’t You run the risk of losing hard earnt traffic from Your own website in exchange for just a pitance?

    Like I say I am really interested re. Your view on this.

    Kindest Regards,

    Graham Price

      If you have better way to make money with your traffic, by all means, ignore adsense. What I like about adsense is it’s ideal for newbie, with little skills, especially marketing skills.

      Also, the old saying of “never put all your eggs into one basket” always hold. Adsense should be one of your income, not all your income. If you need to live and eat with Adsense, I suggest you start thinking of alternatives. Google is changing everyday and you have no full control over it.

    I don’t know about you, but the bloggers I talk with, have one thing in common – they’re all saying out loud how HARD it feels like to make money online. And I’m talking about bloggers from all walks of life, in all kinds of niches and industries; beginners and pros alike.

    Remember how easy it was back in the days when you could slap a banner on a free site and make one or two sales; today you can’t approach blogging the same way like 5, 6 or 7 years ago! You need to have a vision and plan a strategy because people are now more reluctant to buy online than ever.

    Perhaphs you don’t understand the concept of TRUST. Let me explain it to you. It is quite simple – people buy on trust. They buy from other people [and usually not from companies] that they like, know and trust. And because today’s niches get crowded rapidly, competition grows fast too; although the demand for your knowledge, skill and information might be high, the competition is getting fiercer!

    And the problem is this – you can’t expect to make money fast anymore. Your blog visitors have the option to compare your blog and your product and whatever you recommend them to purchase or download, within seconds, with just one mouse click, by Google, Twitter and other related sites.

    So what is the solution? If you believe that there’s at least one solution to any problem you might encounter, then I’m glad we think alike and can’t imagine how excited I get because we are on the same path here.

    OK. The solution is simple. Start building trust with your blog visitors. You can do it via RSS, but there’s a major drawback. A big challenge. Trust takes time. You don’t build friendships in a week. You don’t talk with your best friends via email only. You phone call her, you meet face to face, and so on.

    The situation is very similar to blogging and to the method you should adopt in your venture. RSS is good. But it does NOT help with list building. The key here is you can’t afford to underestimate the concept of “list building” or neglecting it completely. List building is not just creating a list of subscribers. The big picture includes sending follow-up emails and stand alone broadcast messages, such as discount promo emails and special offers, etc.

    Ask all the pro bloggers in your niche. The majority, the ones with the highest respect, authority and experience, are using email list building in combination with RSS feed subscriptions. They have seen tremendous potential in this strategy and made it an habit in their projects.

    Now, if you want to put your WordPress list building on steriods, you should check out this plugin – Subscribers Magnet – it’s proven to rapidly build your email list by using the technology in some unconventional and unique way. It’s unobtrusive and highly impactful. Watch the video on the page to see it in action.

    Thanks for all the advice guys expexially nicodim. I’m just a beginning bloger so I will definately check out your site. But I just want you too know that I do practice relationhips with costomers and potentil costomers.

    I’m alsao not afraid to get a little personal bcause people like to be treated like people and I think if you keep that mindset it can take you a long way.

    That is why I do use RSS feed on my facebook page. Anyway thanks for the advice

    The starting income using the basics above, even if just a dollar, gives a big mental push in the write direction that anything is possible, and has allowed me to focus on my art. Thanks

  11. Jimmy West

    I just want you too know too that there are other services that I use too get tons of traffic too my website.

    One of the newest one are I found this site and realized it’s potential when I was emaiing from my megasafelist page.

    I recommend anyone who is a little or totally intimatatred by google or any other search engine advertising too try this site.

    Ulike search engine advertising where you have too put a Title, Description, and Keywords all you do with this website is put your URL in after perchase and eveything else is done for you.

    And remember these are guaranteed visitors/hits. You won’ get that with search enine of classified ad advertising.

    Everyone who joins my team will get these kinds of links from me so you can get immideate traffic and LOTS of it. And you don’t need oo know ANYTHING about internet anvertising.

    You cold alsao use these kindas of services if you have a nich website and get tons of suscribers too you ezines newletter and potential customers.

    I hope this helps

    This is good advice but my experience rings a few alarm bells.

    If you are not blogging you are not going to meet and get to know other Marketers not to mention you wont build up social proof – so whilst I agree that writing articles for Blogs can take time it does help give you an online presence showing you to be a real person

    The second point I would add is linked to the 1st – whilst Ad Sense income should be possible to actually sell something you have to do an awful lot more than post articles with affiliate links.

    You say about ‘owning the customers’ – treating people this way will not work. You have readers who believe you have something to offer and you make the odd case for ‘an affiliate product that will help make their life better’ – This does not address how they remain as your customers – is it through email marketing or the blog?

    Take Care and Thanks for the post

    I would as well incorporate Google adsense into my overall game plan. I initially lost faith in Google adsense but after some times learning and tweaking things a little bit, the cash started flowing and I have never looked back. Thanks for the inspiration I have been getting from this blog.
