Make Money Online Home ?
Do you want to know how to make money online from home? The internet is full of programs and opportunities to make money. The only problem is finding the ones that actually work and don’t cost an arm and a leg. While there are thousands of programs to choose from many of them cost quite a bit. I know a few people who have spent several hundred dollars on programs just to find out that they didn’t make a single cent.
When I was first starting out with affiliate marketing it cost me almost nothing. However, when I started asking myself questions like: What kind of products do I need to sell?… How will I go about promoting these products?… Am I going to put in the time to make money online from home?… These are all very valid questions and once you figure out the answer to them you will be much more confident about joining the programs that actually make money online from home.
There are many programs that promise you the moon but they don’t deliver on their promises. When I joined Wealthy Affiliate (WAA), I expected to make money online from home without doing anything. After all, affiliate marketing is just a simple pay-per-click program. As long as you get people to click on your affiliate links then you make money. Wealthy Affiliate however, requires you to make a certain percentage of your sales from your customers before you will be paid a commission.
Now, I have to admit that I didn’t expect this to be a big hurdle for me. I joined Wealthy Affiliate because it had a “get paid to” program. Now you might be wondering what the fuss is all about. The “get paid to” program allows beginners like you and me to make money online by simply placing affiliate ads on other people’s websites. I decided to place ads on a website that was offering a freelance writing program. Now you might think that I’m the only one that is benefiting from these programs, but this is not true.
Freelance writing is a huge market and it’s growing larger every day. This is a great way for beginners to break into the internet marketing game. If I were going to make money online from home from this program, I wanted people to see my ads so they would go to the website and sign up for the freelance writing articles. What I didn’t realize was that these same websites were going to need traffic in order to run my ads and get paid.
To get traffic to these websites, I joined some of the best known and respected ad networks on the internet: Google AdSense, Bidvertiser, Chitika, Clicksor and Text Links Ads. With this traffic I had no problem paying affiliate commissions to my affiliate partners who would then pay me commissions on every single sale they made. But my primary concern was getting my text links ads to as many websites as possible. If I were to just create one ad network it would be very expensive!
To make money online from home with the Google AdSense program, you’re going to need a program to pull up your search engine results for you and place your ads. That’s where the long tail keyword search engines come in. I found an amazing website called Squidoo that let me take advantage of their free ad networks. My Google ads went to their stations and my ad revenue started to shoot up.
The last thing I did to promote my affiliate products and make money online from home was my daily dose of email marketing. I got a list of subscribers and a ton of email marketing ideas. This is my preferred method because you can send your newsletters out to hundreds of people with a single email. Also, it allows you to promote your affiliate products to thousands of people in a day and make money while you’re sleeping.
