You could be one of those successful business people making thousands of dollars a year purely by online means. Maybe you’ve gone through years of work and you’ve got your own empire built beneath your feet.
Odds are, however, that you’re not one of those people. You’re struggling just like everyone else.
The Typical Struggling Internet Marketer named ‘You’
For every person on the Internet, there’s a hundred that aren’t making money. That’s fine, and that’st o be expected. Nothing new here.
The problem is that you don’t want to be one of those people. You want to sit there with a six-, seven-, or eight-figure income that keeps earning itself.
I’ll be frank, especially because it’s what this blog is about, I’m not earning that. Not off of this blog. I’ve got a job, and I do it every day.
I’m still successful in my Internet endeavors. (In case you missed it, check out my post about how to gauge your Internet marketing success.)
As you are, you probably won’t get far. You won’t make money buying loads of e-books that you read and never put into action. The one thing you can do today to start earning money today and every day after that is to start putting yourself into action.
That’s why I’ve provided 5 safe methods for anyone to use that will allow you to make a quick buck online. You can do these anywhere, from home, from school, from work, just somewhere that has Internet access. You also don’t have to worry about the dangers that are associated with Blackhat money-making methods.
1. Start Writing
It doesn’t matter what you write, be it Twitter tweets, Facebook posts, articles or blog posts, just start writing. The Internet is filled with content, and there’s people always looking for more of it.
To make an immediate buck: start writing freelance or for content mills.
To make more: improve your writing quality and make some repeat clients.
2. Start Small, Use Fiverr
There’s always somethign that you can uniquely do that people need done. You mgiht be able to write. Maybe you can do voiceover. Maybe you can provide short video clips or logos for people to use within their business.
the point is that you have something that you can do that you can use to start earning income right now. The only problem is finding people to buy your products or services from.
To make an immediate buck: Create an account in Fiverr, then learn how to make the most from Fiverr. You’ll see cash flowing in on a daily basis when done right.
To make more: learn how to market yourself online, then build yourself up as an authority figure.
3. Start Reviewing
I mentioned it earlier, but you may have bought some of those products that promised you to make you money. Why did you do this? Odds are that someone told you that they themselves made money from a product and you clicked on their affiliate marketing link.
To make an immediate buck: use a web 2.0 website or another networking website to make money.
To make more: post more reviews and get to know what information your readers are interested in.
4. Use Social Networking
Social networks have millions of people on them. In fact, Facebook recently reached the billion-user mark in October 2012. That means there’s (minus you if you have an account), one billion people that you could market to.
To make an immediate buck: learn how to market on social entworks, then put it into action.
To make more: use the strategies and tips outlined in publications like the Facebook Wealth Formula and FB Influence 2.0 books. Check out a list of reliable publications that I’ve personally reviewed.
5. Give Your Opinion
Like text, everyone wants your opinion depending on who you are. To make a long story short, companies want your opinions because there are people like you. The better they understand how you think, then the better they can market to other people and the more revenue that they can earn.
To make an immediate buck: join a survey site.
To make more: take advantage of referral programs and complete more surveys with quality answers.
Your turn: What do you think? Are there some methods that you’ve tried, had some immediate success with but couldn’t figure out how to make them viable in the long-term? Add a comment and we can discuss them. Like with every comment I receive, I may even write a featured post to give you an in-depth answer.
