You’ve seen the tv infomercials, you’ve heard the radio commercials, you’ve seen ads in magazines. “Make Money Online” without ever lifting a finger. Click a few buttons and an unstoppable flow of money just pours into your bank while you sit back on a beach somewhere sipping something delicious out of a coconut shell through a little umbrella straw… so how realistic is this… really?
Honestly, with all of the automation tools available, it is possible to make money online doing pretty much nothing but it’s not something you’re going to just start out doing with absolutely no experience whatsoever.
If you would truly like to start making extra money in your part time, I recommend that you start out slow (unless you are a stay at home mom/dad and have the time available to dedicate more time)
There are a number of ways to make money on the internet like Ebay, creating and selling your own digital products, creating and selling your own physical products, pay per click advertising, cpa advertising, online retail through dropshipping, etc.. etc.. but the method I’m going to tell you about now is “Article Marketing”.
There are networks of digital products available, mostly ebooks and software (tens of thousands) which will pay you for referring a buyer to their website. Most split the sales price 50/50 up to 75/25 (your favor).. Many of these sales can net you anywhere from $47 per sale up into the thousands for some of the higher priced courses. If you were to only refer 10 sales a month at $47 that’s $470, 20 sales $940, 100 sales would put $4700 or so into your pocket.
So, how do you refer these sales?
The easiest way for beginners to get involved with this type of online marketing is by writing and submitting short articles on the subject of whatever product they are trying to send referrals to. In short, you can set up a free blog at blogger and create “landing pages” which you link to from your articles. When people reading your articles click through to your page, they can then click through to the vendor and if they buy, you just made some money.
If you’re new to this, you should check out “Article Marketing Domination“, it’s only $27 and is instantly downloadable so you can start reading it right away… and yes, if you buy it I will make a commission (see how that works?). BUT… I could have selected a much more expensive product to recommend but I think this one is a great price for my visitors, has some nice bonus material that comes with it to help you become a better article marketer and of course, covers everything you need to know to get started.
But what if you hate to write?
I can’t say that I blame you. The upside is that you don’t have to be a professional writer to pump out cash producing articles on a consistent basis. The article marketing ebook I pointed to a minute ago comes with a nice bonus “writing like a maniac” which was really helpful when I started.
Some people like to purchase PLR packs (private label rights) which allow you to use them as is or to completely rewrite them in your own words and put your name on them. I would definitely suggest rewriting them as many people buy these and use them in their original form and most article directories won’t accept them. Personally, I like to use Dragon Naturally Speaking, using your own words instead of typing makes creating articles extremely fast and it will make these plr packs sound completely original.
A few PLR packs available:
The Ultimate PLR Article Collection Software: A Library of 29,768 Niche Market Articles in a keyword Searchable database software application. Even create One-of-a-Kind eBooks with the Built in eBook Creation Wizard.. They even lay out 8 different ways to use their content to make money so you’re not limited to just article marketing.
PLR Food Articles & PLR Recipes: Get professionally written PLR recipes and food articles monthly. Frugal cooking, meal planning, cookbook ideas and more.
There are many more available. Some offer new packs every month for you to use. This is a great way to get started if you’re not comfortable writing your own content from scratch.
Earlier, I mentioned automation. I think it’s a good time to go a little more into that.
The process of writing articles and submitting them to the article directories is what takes up the majority of your time. There are a few tools available you might want to look at if you have a little money to spare getting your new money making venture launched. If not, it’s ok to start out doing things manually and then reinvest as much as you can when you start to see money coming in.
Weekly Spin-Ready Articles: Spin ready artices are articles that are written in a specific spin syntax, giving different sentence and word variations so that you can spin it to create multiple unique articles using a spinner software or service like Content FX 2.0 or Magic Article Rewriter and Magic Article Submitter which also submits your articles for you even further increasing the level of automation. ( I personally use Magic Article Rewriter).
Don’t worry if the automation stuff seems like it’s a little over your head right now. Once you go through the article marketing domination ebook and do a few manually it will start to make sense.
The important thing is that if you want to make money online working part time then just get started. The money is out there, there’s a lot of people right this minute that are generating huge amounts of money every month and there are a lot of people earning modest amounts of money online. It all depends on you. Set your own goals, set your own hours, automate the work when possible and start making money online today!
