As a beginning Internet entrepreneur there are many ways how you could make money online. In this article I will give a short review on some ways to make money with the Internet. However, there are a few things that I will exclude from this list as I am against these ways to make money on the Internet.
One of them is paid to click (PTC). Right this moment, millions of people are reading emails and clicking advertisements to make a few extra dollars every month. If I would get a few dollars for hours of work, I would rather do ordinary work and get paid much more. Other non interesting ways to make money on the internet are: Paid surveys, buy my eBook, my way will make you rich and all related nonsense.
My favorite way how to make money online is by writing articles.
You can start your own website and write a lot of articles and place Adsense next to it to make some money with it. If you do not want to have your own website, there are also many social websites on the Internet where you can write your articles and make use of an Adsense sharing program. The best website I know off are Squidoo, Hubpages and Infobarrel.
Sell affiliate products
This is one of the best ways to make money on the Internet although it is not an easy one. Best way doing this is by having your own website. You should start a website on a very specific niche and try adding related affiliate products to your website. It is very important to consider that not all products will sell. The best way knowing if a product would sell is by asking yourself if you would buy that product. Having a website is not obligated. You could also sell affiliate products using free blogs, hubpages.
Paid link advertising
With paid link advertising programs like Kontera or infolinks, some words on your website are transformed to advertisements. Every time a person clicks on the link you will get a few cents. My own opinion is that it will distract people from clicking on adsense adds and these pay off way more. However, because you should vary your income stream, having websites with Kontera or Infolinks is not a bad idea.
There are two ways how you can make money with eBay. One is selling your own products on eBay marketplace and gets a few cents for it. Another (better) way is to make a specific niche site (big blue widgets) and place eBay auctions next to it. Although eBay has a new affiliate system, they are still very lucrative to work with and a very good option to diversify your income stream.
Selling products online
If your website is about a specific niche and you are able to attract many visitors, you could consider selling some related products on it. Why sell affiliate products if you could keep all of the profit? The disadvantage is that you have to import products and keep stock for selling. It is not my favorite way to make money on the Internet but you can make much money out of it.
Sell digital products
Not many people are doing this, but you can make a lot of money selling digital products. There are various platforms in the eCommerce market where you can sell them. However, it is recommended to start using Shopify in selling digital products. There are a lot of master resale rights products out there that you could sell on marketplaces. Although it is my opinion that people buying these products only do this to resell them, a sale is a sale.
This was a short review of my favorite ways to Make Money Online. I am not Internet Guru and I will probably suggest you hundreds of ways, but these ways are good for beginners to make money.
