Internet/affiliate Marketing - Only Scams?

I am writing this article due to all the online so called affiliate marketing scams. It is funny that all everyone is so skeptical now about any chance of online income. All you can think when you see a chance to make money from home is "SCAM, SCAM, SCAM!".

Not 100% true. Think about it for a second. Lets say you have come across an oppurtunity recently that has told you that you can make money from home for the low price of 29.95. They say you can "quit your job and be your own boss as an affiliate marketer". First thing you think is that it is just another rip off. But if you were expecting to start a McDonalds franchise, and they asked you for thousands of dollars for start up cost, thats legit. What I am getting at is if you want to be your own boss, you will eventually have to spend money. Point blank period. So just because it costs doesnt mean it is a scam.

Now that I have put that into your head the right way, lets get to something a little more informative. I want to tell you some things to look for to avoid getting caught up with the guru bs and getting ripped off. After all, chances are that if you are wanting to make money as an internet/affiliate marketer then you dont have alot of money to be throwing around on useless so called "push button" software.

So let me give you a few hints on what to look for in bs programs that dont work.

If it claims to make thousands of dollars overnight: Scam

If it claims you only push 2 buttons and never look again: Scam

If it has all thes pics of clickbank accounts and all that: Maybe legit but not something done overnight

If it claims to be the only of its kind: Dont Trust

Autopilot: Dont Trust

Okay, now that I have told you a few of the dead give aways let me explain a little deeper here. First, if you are completely new to making money online, the chances of you getting rich overnight are less than those of you hitting the lottery for a billion dollars. Affiliate Marketing is NOT learned over night, it is something that takes time, practice and dedication.

Also I would like to state that there is no software that you can push 2 buttons and get rich in an hour. Dont fall for these programs you will regret it I promise. I fell for plenty of them when I first started out. To make money you will have to put in time. Yes, even in internet marketing.

Now some people say that all the pics of these clickbank accounts with $100,000 are fake. Most probably are, but some are legit. The catch is is that they are usually selling their own products and have others selling their product to get that kind of money. And they have been doing it a while and know what they are doing. Also they are probably spending a good bit of that on advertising as well. (Told you that you will have to spend money eventually :D)

If it claims to be one of a kind underground software never revealed...use common since and google it. there will be many other programs of the same kind. And if they are lying to you about this, then they are probably lying about what kind of income you can expect and how hard it will be using their software.

No autopilot, as I stated earlier you will have to do something to make money, otherwise everyone would be rich.

All that being said, their are some legit ways to make money online. I have actually achieved this and I have as well a blog that is going to be revealing many of the free ways to be a successful affiliate marketer.

You can make money blogging, selling other affiliate products via sites like clickbank, commission junctions etc. You can make money with CPA. There are many good effective techniques to do this, as well as more profitable paid ways to do this. Some of the free ways to make money with internet marketing are as follows:

1: Blogger Blog (adsense monetized)

2: Social media marketing (twitter, myspace, fbook, youtube, etc think outside the box :D)

3: Article Marketing (ezine,streetarticles etc)

Now a few paid ways:

1: PPC (pay-per-click)

2: PPV (pay-per-view)

3: CPM (cost-per-milli aka cost per thousand impressions)

And many more of course. My favorite to date is PPV for the paid way, and Social media marketing for the free. Now I would like to tell you however that you can get tools to help you with social media marketing. They are by far NOT required at all, but I actually tried one recently, and it helped save me much of my time by giving me a virtual assistant to outsource my work to as well as it had a tool called Social Genius which saved alot of time by searching multiple social networks at once for my social marketing.

Well that is enough rant for today. By the way, if you guys see any FREE internet marketing information, you should look at it. It cant hurt. Some people are just honest and want to help other people. Dont just doubt it because it says "Make Money Online". Ok till next time.
