I am in need of more money

Who isn't? These days we are going through what many are calling a depression that is expected to rival the Great Depression in scope. On the bright side, if this is a bright side, we will come out of this as the next generation that lived through this and we can tell our kids and grandkids what it was like.

Add an Income Stream

You may have some money coming in and still be encountering difficulty making ends meet. Your need may be more dire than that. If they are, this may not be the opportunity you should pursue right now. Although there are some Internet marketers that say they were making money very soon after they started, there are a lot more that did not make money for some time. In my case, I was at it for over two months before I got my first sale. Like I said, many others got their first sales way earlier, but I cannot in good faith promise you that. I can say you will make a lot of money if you put in a lot of work and don't limit the time you intend to apply to it.

What do I do?

You work as a matchmaker between consumers that have a need and businesses that provide products or services that meet that need. When the consumer buys, you get a percentage or a fee for providing a lead, the difference being the kind of business you promote. The steps are these: you find a hungry market, you find a business that meets that need, you work to attract the right consumers who are ready to buy, and you collect the commissions.

I'm ready to do that

There are a few steps in each part and doing it the right way will make money for you faster. If you look on the Internet, you will find a lot of programs that promise to automate your "affiliate marketing" business (that is what I am describing here), and as tempting as that is, I will recommend to you here and now that you avoid those things. Look at it this way - if it looks like cheating the system and gaming the search engines, the search engines will at some point develop an algorithm that will spot that behavior and your income stream will taper off. I don't want that to happen to you. Besides, if you learn to do it "old school" where you do every step manually, writing out each article you post and so on, when your marketing efforts start paying off, I would recommend that you use some of your profit to play with the tempting things you find out there. By then you will know what is going on, what you need to succeed, and if you are getting your money's worth from the new thing.

I hope I have encouraged you to try affiliate marketing. The only caveat I need to add here is that when I say "try" I mean give it two or three months at least of you putting in the work, like typing 2 or 3 articles per day of between 500 and 700 words each. When you do the work you will learn so much faster what will and what won't work and you will probably see every reason to never quit. Why would you quit something that is working so well?
