How to Make Money Online Honestly and Avoid the Scams

Make Money Online With Integrity

Wouldn't it be great to have an extra income? A few hundred dollars a month extra could make all the difference. What if you could make money online, sufficient to replace your present income and improve your standard of living considerably. Is making money online in a decent and honest way just a dream? Are there any people in the online marketing industry with integrity? I can tell you with absolute certainty that there are.

Sure there are plenty of scammers out there, to be avoided at all costs (I have fallen prey to a few of these over the years in my search for making money online programs that work). However if you take reasonable care and don't put your common sense on hold whenever you're faced with a well crafted sales letter, you will be okay.

How To Begin Making Money Online

One school of thought is to choose a subject that you are familiar with and have a keen interest and understanding, to form the basis of your first niche in which to market. This is alright providing there is sufficient interest in that subject. However a lot of research will still be necessary.

I prefer the copycat method. Find a program that is a proven success and copy it. (Think McDonalds/Burger King) you get the idea.

Affiliate Marketing A Good Place To Start

To make money online quickly and without a web site or technical knowledge is possible using affiliate marketing. It costs nothing to register with the various affiliate companies and you can start earning fairly quickly, depending on your marketing methods.

Most people start with "Clickbank" because it is free to register and there are no fees to marketers. You can set up an account very easily and they pay very good commissions up to 75% of the sale price. Of course if it was all so easy, everyone would be doing it. Well to make money online using Clickbank or any of the other affiliate programs requires knowledge. It really is no different to setting up a bricks and mortar business but without the huge costs involved.

Other popular affiliate programs are "Amazon" and Paydotcom. You will be amazed at just how many companies and some really well known brands have an affiliate program. However, for these you will at least need your own web site and some marketing skills. This is all easily learned if you have a desire to succeed and are willing to learn.

The best advice I can give you is not to fooled by the very flash websites promising you riches on "Autopilot" no knowledge needed. This is all pure hype but thousands fall for these snake oil sales pitches every day.

The reality is that making money online is not that difficult. As long as you have a good grasp of the basic concept, it is possible to get started with very little capital investment.
