My Favorite Ways To Make Money Online

There are all kinds of ways that you can make money online.

One of the best ways, especially when first starting out, is to become an affiliate marketer. Affiliate marketing is a terrific way to make money online because you don't need your own product or service. Nor do you need to deal with all the headaches that are associated when owning your own product or service.

Some of the things that you don't have to worry about are providing support or processing payments that are coming in. And on the flip side of that you don't have to worry about chargebacks or refunds. You also don't have to worry about shipping a physical product out if that is what the company provides.

The benefit is you simply promote a product or service and earn commissions when people buy using your affiliate link.

One of the features that I really like to look for when promoting a product or service is what is called residual income. This is income that is earned every single month. So instead of having a sale just being one time (called a "one and done"), your marketing efforts pay off much more with reoccuring commissions. These types of sales usually occur with products or services that require a monthly membership. And as long as your referrals continue to subscribe each month, you continue to earn.

You can find products or services to sell with affiliate networks such as Clickbank, Commission Junction, or PayDotCom.

Another popular way to earn money online is with what are called CPA offers. CPA stands for Cost Per Action, and is associated with collecting a customer's personal information such as Name, Email Adress, Zip Code, Phone Number, etc.

The really nice thing about CPA offers is that the customer doesn't have to pay anything to receive whatever they are signing up for, and you get paid for simply collecting the customer's pertinent information.

For instance, you might offer to provide a customer a free insurance quote when the customer supplies their name and email address. The insurance company will contact the customer with the free quote, and then pay you for sending them a name and email address.

The more difficult the information is to get usually determines how much the company will pay per lead. For instance, getting a customer to provide a valid phone number might pay more than getting a valid email address. Getting credit card information would likely pay more than getting a phone number.

CPA offers can be very lucrative so it's worth checking around to see what it is that is available.

A CPA Network like NeverBlue has hundreds of different offers that you can market. And when you join you are assigned an Affiliate Manager who can be very helpful in determining what offers to promote. They will guide you on what offers are currently the most popular or have the highest payouts, and based on your marketing skills, can recommend what they consider to be good offers for you to promote.

While affiliate marketing and CPA promotion are certainly two of the most popular ways to make money online, there are others as well that may not pay out as much, but can certainly provide extra cash when you need it.

The first is with Adsense Ads. If you have a website or a blog, then you are just throwing money down the drain if you aren't placing Adsense Ads on them. If someone visits your site and clicks on one of your ads then you earn money and it can be anything from a few cents to over a dollar depending on the ad. Obviously, the more websites and blogs you have the more likely you are to earn more and more money.

There are programs out there that swear you can make a full time living from just Adsense Ads. Perhaps that's true. I don't know. But what I do know is that I have earned hundreds of dollars from Adsense Ads, so it's a great way to add some extra cash to the bottom line.

Two cautions that you need to be aware of though when using Adsense Ads:

1) Never click on your own Adsense Ads. That's a sure way to get banned.

2) Never use Pay-Per-Click advertising for one of your websites or blogs that has Adsense Ads on them. Google will likely ban your website for this activity.

The other method I use to generate some extra cash is called Sponsored Tweets. This is a business where advertisers pay you to send out tweets on their behalf via your Twitter account. The more followers you have via Twitter the more you can earn. I now earn over $10 per tweet that I am asked to send out. You probaly won't start out this high, but over time as you continue to add more followers, and your rating increases, you will increase the amount you are paid per tweet. Again, you're not likely to get rich using this method, but it will generate some extra spending money for you.

In my early days of internet marketing I actually used the money I generated from Adsense and Sponsored Tweets to pay for some of the tools and advertising I needed to build my other internet businesses.

They have proven very beneficial to me over the last few years and I hope they do the same for you.
