Actually Working to Make Money on the Internet

by : Danny Schartkoff

There are many people out desperate for more money. Unfortunatly, most of them are desperate for a lot of money very fast. Thousands of internet sites prey on these people. In fact, these sites are around because their owners also want to get rich quick. A good example of some of the scam sites are the 'get paid to...' sites. According to these you can get paid to take surveys, read e-mails, surf the internet, or just about anything where they can cram your computer full of ads and pay you 1/1000 of a cent for each one.

Just think about this... if you knew how to make money without working hard or for a long time would you really want to tell other people your secret? I doubt it. Trying to profit through the internet is not a free ticket. You need to learn to do things on your own and work for success.

Probably the simplist way to make money on the internet is to sell a product. However, before you can do this you need a domain name, a host and a product. Domain names and hosts are fairly cheap. Sites like yahoo offer hosting and domain name business services that even people with no webamster experience can easily use for little money. In contrast a product can be expensive. You will need to decide what you want to sell and then buy an inventory for the product. Buying your inventory also requires that you find a supplier. Once you find a supplier they will most likely be very helpful and want to help your new business.

After this comes promotion. Nobody will buy from you if they can't find your site. Submitting to product info to price comparison sites can get a lot of sales. If you price your product lower than every one else you will definatly get some sales. You can also promote your entire site by advertising. Advertising on the internet requires a great deal of sorting through the scam sites. Most people will waste money on bad advertising even after the work to find legitamate places to advertise. Webmaster forums can help to get through this because you can ask other webmasters what has and hasn't worked for them to avoid mistakes others have made.

Once you find a way to successfully promote your business the moeny really does often come quick and with little work.
