Almost every new client had the expectation that they would be making huge amounts of money with little work within a short time.
In any case, I became a student and mentor of Internet marketing. In fact, that was when I started this blog, See Me Remember Me Buy Me. The name comes from a different job I had, but that’s another story.
Content Based Online Revenue
I often asked myself if there was any truth at all to the possibility of making money online. Specifically, I mean the strategy we taught:
• Choose an Interest
• Build a Website
• Attract Visitors
• Earn Revenue
Does this strategy work?
I think it does, however, it takes a lot more work and a lot more time that most people I taught expected.
How to Make Money Online, GuaranteedIt is creating and building a business. It takes more time and effort than any salesman might tell you when selling you courses that teach this strategy.
As to the question for this post: How do I make money online, guaranteed?
To have a guarantee, you need a strategy that is as realistic as starting a new job. For example, if you are hired for a job in a factory or an in office, you are guaranteed income based on the hours you work. Even if they fire you or lay you off, you be paid for the hours you work.
Here are some ways that you can earn money online with this kind of guarantee or close to it:
Get a Remote JobAlong with the idea of making money online is the idea of working from home.Almost every student who wants to make money online has the goal of working from home as a primary motivation.Telecommuting is much more realistic now than it was 15 years ago.
Refer PeopleMany merchants have affiliate or referral programs.An affiliate program is where you put a link on your blog or website (or in an email) to purchase goods or services online. If someone uses your link to make the purchase, you get a fee. This is the basis of the “Interest – Website – Traffic – Revenue” strategy I mentioned above.The difference here would be instead of counting on visitors finding your affiliate link from searching for information, you are sending a person to that link to buy something you suggested to them yourself.For example, often in my freelance business I talk to people who are looking for a business phone service. I tell them, “The one I use is RingCentral. Check out my blog post about it.” I then send them an email with the link to that post.So, yes, I still made a blog. I did choose an interest and make a website. But instead of counting on visitors arriving through searches to then hopefully click on my affiliate link, I sent someone there after they decided they needed the service and asked me for a suggestion.Doing this you can make a little money here and there. It will not huge amounts. Little amounts add up over time.Caveat: Be aware that there are a lot of scams based on this idea. Multi-level-marketing is based on this idea of being paid for referring people (usually friends and family) and getting paid for it. Look for affiliate and referral programs that do not have a cost to participate.
