So it has been awhile since I have updated this blog about making money on the internet. There are many reasons for this but the main one would have to be pure laziness. I have learned a lot from my last blog post here on this making internet money blog and am here to share some of my experiences.
So far in my opinion the best way to make internet money legit is to make websites, write great content, get links, and choose your keywords carefully. All in all what it all boils down to is that you are going to have to work. And making money on the internet does not happen over night, unless you are an unethical asshole spammer that is doing nothing but bombarding email addresses and running bookmarking demon runs 24/7.
Ok so without further ado I will be going over some of the ways this past year that I was attempting the to make money on the internet.
Making Internet Money With Paid Surveys
To me, in my opinion this has to be one of the biggest scams that are on internet when it comes to making money online. There are literally thousands of affiliates that are out there promising you that if you work only 2 hours a week you can make 20 grand a month and so forth. I do not see how this is humanly possibly, excuse the exaggeration but it just kind of pisses me off. But despite all the internet paid surveys that are out there that are scams I decided to give it a shot and see if I could make an honest buck out of it.
I knew that I would have to be filling out countless forms if I was going to be successful at this, and knew that I would have to make a seperate email address for this form of online income. So I went and got the professional version of Roboform. Not sure if there are better automatic form fillers that are out there but this one got the job done. All in all I gave it about a week for a couple of hours a day. I made maybe $50 and got a bunch of free trials of products and such. Needless to say I gave up on it, just too annoying and too many crap websites out there when only 5% of them will pay you anything at all for completing their surveys, and some may ship you some free products.
Making Internet Money Through Ebay Powerselling
I’ve never got to the status of a powerseller but I have made some decent money off of eBay. Basically by just selling junk that has been piling up in my closet. If you want to get smart about it use the products you get from taking online surveys and then sell them on ebay for a discounted price . The key to making money off of eBay though is to have a good reputation. It’s really easy to do but will require discipline. I have a 100% user rating and that is because I deliver what I promise in the ad, and I ship out the product immediately.
It’s also may be wise to send a note in the product you are shipping to the customer, stating that you would love to get positive feedback from them, and if they are not satisfied with the product then you will refund them right away as long as they return it. Anything you can think of that will prevent them from leaving negative feedback on your user status, that will kill a lot of your sales if you are trying to become a powerseller.
Making Money on the Internet Blogging
Something I am still a long ways away from mastering. One thing that I can share with you though is that if you are blogging just to get traffic, then you are not going to make any money. If you are careful with your keywords and only target a specific type of audience to your blog, preferably selling a service of some sort, then you will be successful.
Your traffic has to be targeted or you are going to starve, that is one thing that I learned. I could Digg this post to death and get hundreds of people to Digg this post to the front page until I get so many visitors it crashes the server, but I would not make much money off it because it’s all social traffic. Which does not convert. This website does not convert well and I do not make anything off of it, maybe enough to cover the hosting and the time I take to type out these posts.
Making internet money is not hard compared to lots of jobs, but no matter which way you look at it, it’s going to take work. There is no magic bullet when it comes to making money on the internet, there is no easy way to riches, prepare to type, prepare to work, and prepare to make mistakes. Stop listening to other marketers. See for yourself if something works. If you take in one thing in this article, read the last two sentences, and live by them. The more mistakes you make the smarter you will be, that is the key to making money on the internet.
