Are you looking for a way to make money online? You may think that it’s not possible and haven’t bothered to get started. But learning how to make money online is a skill that anyone can learn.
Imagine if you have some extra income every month? Some people are able to quit their jobs while others are happy having that extra $500 or $1000 each month.
Would that extra income make a difference in your life? Sure it would!
I have been earning money online for many years and know hundreds or thousands of others who do the same. It may seem like an overwhelming idea at first but it’s really not that complicated.
Here are my best strategies for you to get started with building your income producing online business.
How to Make Money Online Fast
Before I get into helping you understand the basics of generating additional income online, I want to clear up one tiny item.
Making money online fast most likely won’t happen. It just takes time to establish yourself to get going.
When I started my first online business, I didn’t see a penny for about 4 months. I worked hard with zero income coming in.
Some people don’t make money for 6 months or a year. The thing all these people have in common is they kept going!
Eventually we learned, got established and started making incredible incomes online.
But … time will pass whether you get started or not! Imagine where you can be a year from now.
If you don’t have the patience, then an online business may not be a good fit for you.
Making Money Online is about Selling
Selling is what making money online is all about. There is no way around that.
I remember when I joined a network marketing business. I was told that it’s not selling, it’s sharing.
How silly it that? I never bought into that idea. It is selling no matter what you choose to call it.
People buy stuff all day long on the Internet. So, why not buy stuff from you instead of someone else who took the initiative to get started with online selling?
Although there are lots of ways you can earn money online, the one foundation skill is learning how to sell online.
If that scares you a little, then good! Your life can change in amazing ways. Once my online income started rolling in, I was able to travel to many countries around the world.
That’s something I always wanted to do. What do YOU want to do?
Focus on your dreams so you can have choices and options in life!

Affiliate Marketing to Earn Money Online
Imagine earning a commission every time someone clicks a link and makes a purchase? That’s how affiliate marketing works! You don’t need to create or ship products! For example, if you were an affiliate of Amazon, you would place links in your online content. When someone clicks the link and buys an item from Amazon, you get a commission.
I love affiliate marketing and have made some incredible income from it over the years. Just remember that you will do the same amount of work for 4% commission as you would for a 40% commission.
You can do affiliate marketing in social media, blogs, and YouTube. Create great content that is appealing to your audience (niche market) and include links to products that make sense within the context.
Network Marketing to Earn More Income Online
Have you joined a network marketing company? Honestly, talking to individuals in person is great but how many can you really talk to in a day?
My first MLM website had thousands of people coming through it every day. I ended up with thousands of customers and hundreds of people joining my team!

It may seem a little scary at first but I promise you that you will be hooked after you get that first check.
“If you don’t have the patience, then an online business may not be a good fit for you.” You nailed it. And yes, it is not just all about skills, it is something that you are passionate about. I actually encourage people to learn how to make passive income and not just depend on their daily income.
