How Can I Make Money Online?

Career Entrepreneurialism

There are thousands of websites that claim to be able to show you how to make millions of dollars online. These websites, like Rich Jerk dot com, should be approached with a grain of salt, and everyone should purchase at least one. Yes, you read that right: even though these websites couldn’t possibly show you how to make millions on the internet, they can teach you some very valuable fundamentals (I’ll get to them in a minute).

The reality is that there is a lot of money to be made online, and that you can earn a substantial income off of the internet. Websites like one previously mentioned are part of a much wider scope of marketing tools used by many designers to generate an income. When you purchase, there are at least two people making money.

These two people are practicing a technique online that has single handedly revolutionized the way that online sales are conducted.

This method, which was actually first introduced by Amazon.com in the mid-90s, has increased sales volumes so much that many online retailers start up their online storefronts based entirely upon it.

Before we talk about that technique, however, you need to have a basic understanding of how sales work. Sales is simply a process in which a merchant offers a good or service to a consumer. The sales process, however, is literally a scientific process in which a merchant, or third party entity (such as a salesperson), influences consumer behavior. There are many aspects of sales, from advertising to re-buying, and all of them have an equally important task.

Online sales is a relatively new medium, and though many individual and commercial entities have tried to master it, there are still no concrete methods in place. At this point, as of May 2007, it is still anyone’s game. Millionaires are being created every day thanks to the internet, and you’d be a fool to think that you weren’t capable of monetizing on it. But, the real question is not how much can you make, as that figure is literally limitless. The real question is, how the heck are you going to do it?

That is the reason that it is still such a lucrative market: because various sales methods are being tested every day, and though many have failed, some have succeeded. The main method for sales today, is the affiliate system. When you purchased a membership to one of those “get rich quick” websites, you were part of an affiliate process.

This process, which is unique only to the internet, is the driving force behind billions of dollars in sales every year. It is so lucrative that multi-million dollar firms have dedicated hundreds of staff to monetizing it, yet personal enough that a single person, working out of their own home, can generate an income with it.

What do you need to get started in the process? You need to do your research. Starting an online business requires a lot of time and dedication, just like any other business. Doing your homework is half the battle, then you’ll need to go through a trial and error process. The more you try, the more you will find works. If you learn nothing else, you will learn more about yourself and how you react to challenges.

  1. When I start running out of money, I turn to prostitution. I stand on the corner of the street near the financial districts of Vancouver and wear a sign that says “$50 for 3rd base, $55 for a home run”. I got the idea from the $5 upgrade from a full-size to an SUZ that Hertz car rental offers! I could’t refuse, neither can the female stock brokers.

  2. Looking for the tools you need to get that income online? Marks enterprise is the answer to what you’ve been longing for.

  3. This is the most scientific look at affiliate marketing I have seen in a long time. I mean, obviously it works for some people. There are indeed folks reaping the benefits daily. Sitting back and looking at the really good models is your best bet.

  4. BRAVO! I commend the author for bringing this subject to light. I make a handsome living online. I must say however, it is not for the timid. You must learn all aspects and find a mentor either online or in person. I will also tell you this, my first site was a disaster due to lack of knowledge and the thought of “BIG MONEY” was just too tempting. Cold hard cash is only gotten through hard work. And in the online arena there is lots of hard work!

    1. Not if you have suitcases to carry around after jumping out of/into a plane..
      I drive a very small SUV that is actually shorter in body span than a Volkswagen Jetta… a Suzuki Sidekick, older model with a 1.6 litre engine. Very convenient for hauling luggage here and there… I would never bother with a full size SUV or a pickup tho.. just not redneck enough.

      1. Then you are excused
        Maaan, I just returned from New York… The air carriers’ service is going down the hill…
        less service… more pricey…

  5. It seems to me that the ones making a fortune are the ones selling their so called “secret to success”. If they/you are so willing to help me; why not, show and mentor me first and then upon success, allow me to pay for the help.

    1. LOL, their ’secret to success’ is selling their ’secret to success’. I always wonder how many of these self help people don’t have two REAL pennies to rub together.

  6. Affiliate programs are great. We get tons of sales through affiliates (and they make a handsome commission). Plus it’s great for generating word of mouth, as we’re happy to expand our user base with those who prefer to just stick to the free version of our neat product.

  7. I always thought that “do as i do” is the best affiliate program ever invented. I am sure people still doing it in some corners of the world.
    You put an add in the local paper telling people to send you like 5 $ and then you send them back not saying “do as i do”
    Genius!

  8. Too true, I was looking at one the other day that published a snippet of a report showing their online earnings.. the money all came from selling the scheme that supposedly made the money…. i doubt these schemes make much money for the buyers…

  9. Dont get why you need to sign up on rich jerk to learn this stuff.. surely building a site and trying to sell is a better way to learn, and one that will earn money instead of wasting it…

  10. in my opinion, good ideas always works.. i think it’s much important what you decide to do, then what you do.. but at the end, the most important is how you do..
