Is it Possible to Make Money Online In 2013?

Many people have begun to wonder whether it was possible to make money online in 2013. With the tremendous amount of one click wonder scams selling you dreams and turning them into nightmares, many people have lost hope in finding work online where they can make a steady income. That's where I come in. I'm very new to this work at home online game, but I decided to get involved in affiliate marketing. Over the last eight days I've been with an online affiliate training program that has showed me it is truly possible to make great money online. I recently made my very first sale for $22.86, and I know that number is going to continue to grow. I want to be the one to help you realize you can create an online business that is successful enough to help you quit your day job and work on your own schedule.

I came across Wealthy Affiliate while endlessly searching one night how I could make money for free. They promise a $0 starter membership and all I could remember thinking was "yeah right, just another free video that leads me to a $97 payment to even get some real help", but that's where I was wrong. They were really in it to help, because it was completely free. The free starter membership comes with 20 videos, step by step instructions, all designed for a complete newbie (which I was), and it's own social networking system where everyone helps and contributes. So, of course, I signed up and made the best decision of my online career. I spent 2 hours 2 nights in a row, and finished the first 10 videos, had a website/blog up and running, and was already promoting products to make money. Now, of course, I don't have a lot of traffic coming in just yet, because my website is new, but I've already made a sale. As soon as I saw that sale in my account I knew that this dream of working online was possible.

So I sit here writing this today to let you know that it is possible. There are programs that are free, or programs that cost that do work great! I've found this out from experience, testing a majority of the products I come across. I want people to know they shouldn't give up on their work from home dreams. I've given up before, but now that I've found out how it's done I am shameful for giving up on myself before.

Thank you for reading, I hope this was truly informative.

Yes, I know the feeling making a sale, especially the 1st sale. It can be very motivating to your online career. LOL.

Wow only 8 days? I`m pushing a month and still haven`t earned a penny! Perhaps I`ve chosen the wrong niche... Well, either way keep on trucking J!

Chip, Your niche is such a tough niche, but there is a very good amount of money to be made within it! The trick is to finding the right keyword to promote with that niche so people get to see your awesome site. I'm in a niche with a lot of different ways to make money and that's why I'm seeing results a little faster (I think)

It`s funny that the easiest niche for making money online is "making money online" huh? Just goes to show how many people want freedom from their jobs. Anyways I`ve started targeting very low competition (less than 20) just to see myself rank but it`s still gonna take between a month or two. That`s atleast 10 days and at most 40 lol. Patience isn`t one of my strong points. Anyways thanks for the encouragement!

Oh and did you see Jay`s webinar last night? It was great "ranking metrics you may have overlooked"

  about 9 years ago

Yeah the making money online niche will always be at the top of the charts. That's what sucks with ranking in Google. You have to find these low competition keywords, but that also means that you're ranking in a keyword that isn't searched enough. It will definitely take a while to rank on the top on the keywords you need to rank on to see sufficient traffic/results. You are on the right path though and I am so impressed and motivated by your ambition.

Ya patience is the hardest thing! I just take it a day at a time.
