How to Make Online Money - Regular People Make Thousands And Anyone Can Do It

"How do you get a job?"

277,000,000 people searched google last month, looking for an answer to that specific question. 1 in 10 Americans are still unemployed, and many more are broke.

Huge Business sectors have been eliminated, companies have been destroyed, jobs are lost and homes are being taken away. The world of jobs, careers, small and large business has changed drastically. The old ways of earning a good income are gone; and an entirely different beast has emerged.

Today to achieve financial independence; you need to be the driver of your own destiny. You can't count on an employer to be there tomorrow for you.

'Here today, gone tomorrow.'

Who would you rather have in charge of your financial security?

You, or an employer? The Internet is the land of endless opportunities and recurring revenue. This is the place to position yourself if you want to be responsible for your own life. Regular people are making thousands of dollars every month, and the great news is that anyone can do it.

The Money is on the Internet and the treasure trove is called Affiliate Marketing.

Current best selling author of "Get Rich Click," Marc Ostrofsky, appeared on ABC's "The View" June 9th. The View's Elisabeth Hasselbeck could not believe people were making huge money by having others click on a link. While not new online, Affiliate Marketing is slowing making it's way into mainstream news.

You can earn money as an affiliate, to sites that offer an affiliate program. If you recommend a product to a friend and they purchase it, you receive a commission for that sale.

Anyone can earn money online with Affiliate Marketing. There are no special skills or experience required. That is the good news. The great news is that all the knowledge you need is available and it can be learned.

Any passion or interest can be turned into an online business. The first step, is to find products or services around your passion. Next, start promoting these products to your friends and network, who could benefit from the products. When one of your friends makes a purchase, you then receive a commission. In it's simplest form, that is Affiliate Marketing.

No financial investment is required, because you are not selling your own products. You are promoting products from websites that you have signed up for, as an Affiliate Marketer. All the sales and payment processing is done by the product website; you don't get involved with that end of it at all. The whole process is tracked automatically, electronically and magically, as affiliate commissions arrive in your bank account.

Have you ever heard of making money while you sleep?

In certain affiliate programs you will receive affiliate dollars for the lifetime of that customer. That is, you would be earning residual income any time your referral makes subsequent or monthly automated payments. For example, there are product websites that have a recurring monthly membership fee. You would automatically receive a percentage, as high as 50%, of the monthly membership fee. As an Affiliate Marketer, you could potentially look forward to a lifetime of recurring commissions.

The real beauty of the Affiliate Marketing Business Model is in it's design. This reciprocal based way of carrying out business online is ingenious, because everyone involved wins! It is the ideal Internet business model of today.

The Internet is a constantly changing inter-connection of people and businesses, leveraging each other's products and resources.

Once you sign up for an affiliate program, and start promoting their products, you become a valuable commodity to the product website. They want you to succeed! You are bringing them sales, and you are bringing them new customers - that is extremely valuable to them. The more product sales are made; the more money everyone makes.

Within this win/win paradigm, the affiliate programs work hard to give you the tools you need to be successful.

The mantra on the Internet today is, "Learn More, Earn More."

Often people are deterred from getting involved in online earning, because they are intimidated by the Internet. After all, it is the WWW, the world wide web we are referring to here.

For success in any field; the proper education is paramount. Affiliate Marketing is no different, and even more so critical to learn from the people who are actually making money.

The best place to get started in this business, is at an actual internet marketing university, where you can gain the knowledge and have access to the tools you will need to make money online.

In business and in life, you are going to have the most success if you go where success lives. In the land of win/win everyone is set up for success. From the website you will need, to a community of like-minded online money adventures, it's all provided. Based on the monitoring of success and failure, the leaders and community continually sharpen and improve the program.

As a life-time entrepreneur and marketing expert; I have tried and tested many ways that passionate people can earn money, on their own terms. There is nothing out there that can come close to the earning potential and possibilities of earning online money than exists now with affiliate marketing on the Internet.

There is a very high earning potential, no risk on your behalf, and could have the greatest impact on the life of a motivated individual. I am a member myself, and it has changed the way I do business online because of what I am learning.

"If everyone would go online, buy a domain and start building a little internet business on something they are passionate about, there would be hardly any unemployment and a lot less cranky people." Kimberly Valenti, Founder & President Money by Internet

Cool article Kimberly, I especially like the comment at the end.

I think that comment also is appropriate. Everyone has a passion and if they took this passion online, it would lead to many more people earning income through the Internet. There is room for everyone within the Internet economy and I think as we move forward, you will see a lot of the traditional jobs disappearing and replaced by Internet related jobs/businesses (even more so than now).
