If you have you been wanting to make money online for awhile now, you have probably encountered product launches, audio and video streaming, telephone seminars, and JV ventures, etc. The experts that are promoting these products and services are making money head over heal. In all fairness, these products and services are real and useful to the people who buy them.
But what most of them will not tell you is that there are thousands of people on the Internet making thousands of dollars a month and not spending a red cent. They do not go around to every marketing seminar in the world just to make contacts and sales. They seldom do joint ventures with other marketers, because frankly, no one knows who they are. They plainly sit in front of their computers in their under garments, click a few links, and hang on till the money starts rolling in.
Want to know how do they do it? Affiliate links, Google Adsense, and PLR content.
Take Google Adsense, for example. Search engines fancy good content and the more, the better.
When you build numerous content pages on your website, the search engine spiders crawl the website, then follow each link to more content, which helps increase your rankings.
How does this make you money? By inserting Adsense ads on every page and as visitors click through your pages, many will also click the Adsense advertising links. Every time they do, you make a commission from Google. It can be anywhere from a few cents to many dollars.
They do not have to buy something. Just by clicking the link makes you money. The more people you direct to your website, the more people will click the links, and the more money you will make.
Now all that is required is content. If you are a good author, you can write your own. But most of us are not.
One choice would be to use articles written by others. Go to any of the accepted article directories and you will find thousands of articles. Most can be re published free of any cost as long as you keep the resource box attached with each article. While you are not promoting your own product, this is a very viable choice.
The main downside to using other peoples articles is that the reader will perceive them as expert information and probably click the link in the resource box instead of the Adsense links, and you lose money.
However, the best choice is Private Label Rights articles. Just a little modification can change these articles into your own handiwork. The reader will see you as the expert, while you are not competing with another author.
You can also enter your own resource box with a link to an affiliate program, so whether they click the Adsense links or your affiliate link, you have raised your odds of making money. And you have done it lacking a single product of your own.
Making money on the Internet is not as tough as some would have you consider. As with any online concern, give the people what they want and they will be back for more.
