Making Money Online Free

Nothing is cheaper than free. But is there really a way of making money online free of cost? Not really. You will be paying in some way. For example, Internet marketers drive traffic to their websites by writing articles. This is part of what is called "bum marketing" by a marketer called Travis who's wife coined the phrase that even a bum could make money on the Internet.

Let's take a look at it. Say it takes you two hours to write an article. How much is your time worth? Would you work of the minimum wage? If you value your time, you will place a value on it. Then if you use, or waste time, you can put a value on it.

Now your article has to be sent to the Internet. You do that by computer and modem. You use the computer to write your article. What does it cost you to rent your computer to yourself? Say that you work full-time or 2080 hours each year. If your computer has a life of three (3) years and you paid $2400.00 for it with the printer. That is $800.00 each year of operation which is thirty-three cents a minute. Forgetting the cost of paper and printing ink, we have little actual cost. At Idaho's minimum wage it would cost you $15.16 to write one article. Is that making money online free?

There are some other cost. You have to have an Internet service provider. That could add up to a buck each day. Also, you should, but don't have to have a website, which must be toasted. That may cost you about ten dollars a month. Also there is a small charge to register your domain and to keep it active. All to together these items are small but they are part of your cost. To be making money online free cost money.

The way an Internet article marketer works is to find a passion or area where he is qualified to work. This could be from a hobby or profession or from education or experience. You are able to write on that subject so you design a website where folks making keyword searches can find relevant information. Those two words, relevant information, are the the crutch and meat of Internet marketing.

Once you have found your "niche" you then search for products you can sell. It is best if you can create or have sole access to your own process. You might write an e-book and put it on Click-bank where affiliates will sell the e-book for you. You might find a local source for a product. Perhaps you can become a dealer (as I am) and have products shipped directly to your customers. If you do all of this it will seem like you are making money online free because you have little outlay other than your time.

Now some Internet marketers buy ads to drive traffic to their site. They also may generate income by allowing others to place ads on their sites. But if you pay for ads, that is not making money online free.

Internet marketing has its tricks to learn, the tricks of the Internet marketing trade. Also, the net is specific to the need to drive traffic to your website. You can do so at very low cost, except for your time, and feel like you are making money online free.
