How Can I Make Money Online Without Doing Surveys

Have you ever really met someone who made a full-time income from doing surveys online? I know that I sure haven't and if you told me otherwise I would think that you're a liar unless you showed me actual proof of the income. The question that a lot of people want to know is how can I make money online without doing surveys?

This question greatly depends on if you have a skill set where there is a demand that allows people to work remotely from home. If you have knowledge in graphic design, programming or anything else tech related you can find work pretty easily by doing a quick Google search. If this doesn't work you can use places like oDesk or ScriptLance where you can bid on jobs that employers post, and if you do a really good job people will start recommending you to others.

What If You Don't Have A Special Skill Set?

This is a good question, because when I first started learning how to make money online I was completely lost on which direction to go. Eventually I discovered affiliate marketing and saw the potential of how much money that I could make with it. I was hooked!

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is when you (the affiliate) put a link on your website that points to a merchants website, and if someone clicks on that link and buys something from the merchant website the affiliate (you) make a commission. There are thousands of merchants that use this type of marketing, some examples would be Wal-Mart, Verizon Wireless and Dick's Sporting Good.

Why would companies like this want to pay you to do something like this? Simply because you are providing a free form of advertising for them so they are more than happy to give you a percentage of the sale. Sometimes you can find products that will pay up to 60% commissions or higher for their affiliates.

Can This Work For You?

This can work for anybody if you are dedicated enough and have the proper training that shows you how to properly go about things. There are some people who see success right away, some take several years to make their first dollar online while other give up before they ever make a single penny online.

Once you have the proper training, its a matter of how you decide to implement these techniques you know and actually following through with doing them that ultimately determines your fate. Some people let the fear of failing hold them back, which I fell victim to for several years myself.

Get The Training You Need

If you find the proper training it will significantly increase your chances of being successful. There are places like the Wealthy Affiliate University that offer internet marketing training that can help you make money online in several different ways, not just affiliate marketing. I feel this is important because you don't have to be so one dimensional with what you do.

It took me over 2 years to start making enough money to quit my day job, so I believe that the money that I spent on my training was well worth it considering that most colleges would have cost me 20 times more that what I paid. The way I look at it is that this was a career that I was learning, and the Wealthy Affiliate University was my source of education that led me to my ultimate goal of being my own boss.
