Everyone Is Making Money On The Internet These Days, Are You?

30 June 2008 6 Comments

The last three months of my life have been quite the learning experience. Since April of this year, I have been working hard and consistently on this blog, 20s Money. It’s been quite the journey and I have learned everything from writing, web development, monetization strategies and more. The most amazing thing I have learned about is all of the different ways there are to make money on the internet. It is incredible. Through this post, I hope you have a better glimpse of the real and viable opportunity the internet can be for anyone, even you to make money.

Ways To Make Money Online

  • Affiliate Programs – Affiliate programs kicked into overdrive as the blogging industry boomed. Now-a-days you can find an affiliate program for a company in just about every industry. More and more companies are turning to affiliate marketing to find new potential customers. How it works: you sign up to be an affiliate for company X that sells product Y. You write about how much you love product Y and you think that the people who read your blog would benefit by giving it a try also. You provide links to company X and you get paid a commission for every sale you refer or sometimes even every lead you refer. Most big blogs make most of their money through affiliate programs.
  • Advertising – After the dot-com crash in the early 2000’s, Google basically resurrected the internet through Google Adsense. Adsense allows anyone with a web site to “sell” advertising space, however you don’t sell the space, you sell the performance; i.e. you make money each time someone clicks an ad on your website. Adsense isn’t the only advertising program for the average person on the internet but it is the biggest and one of the easiest to use. Google Adsense is at the foundation of just about every website’s monetization strategy.
  • Get Paid For Content – It’s amazing but you can actually get paid for blogging on your own blog! This works by writing posts that advertisers pay you to write. Companies realize that blogs are a great way for word of mouth advertising for their products and services so they are able to pay for it. You can also earn money by referring people into the program so it is fairly easy to earn money through such programs.
  • Sell A Product – It is very easy to get a basic e-commerce website up and running these days. Do you have a product or service to sell over the internet? The best kind of product is an information product like an e-book because there are no inventory costs or production costs. Once you create the information, you don’t need to create it again. Find a niche, create an informative product, create your web presence and then drive potential customers to your site.

    True there are great places to make a buck, but at the same time a lot of the experiences I’ve had included offering some integrity to get the $ – I’ve found the best way to do it honestly is to just blog about what you like, if people ALSO like what you do, they’ll be back (and so will their clicks)… But it is true, there is a lot of room for monetization…
