Can anyone tell us a for real way to make $100 a day online that doesn't involve adword campaigns?

I struggled with the answer to this question because the short answer is an affirmative yes you can! The longer version is while many try, not all succeed. There are a number of schemes and 'techniques' that people are hyping but I believe it comes down to 2 things, you and your passion.

What I mean by this is the following; what do you have to contribute that someone else would want to know or understand? How well do you communicate and present yourself or your product? I saw some excellent suggestions that are real and available to everyone, from writing articles to submitting pictures and selling hard goods. I'm sure there are many more.

What is needed in each of these cases is you, the individual and what you can uniquely contribute. You need to be the one creating content and developing trusted relationships on the web so people want to buy from you. You need to treat this like a business and invest time and hard work to make it work. You need to make your passion for your product or idea shine through your content and efforts. The common thread is you and your unique passion or knowledge.

The ones who are able to do this are the ones who are successful. For me, I am following a recipe. I just need to make sure I have the best ingredients (content) possible for my web site so my visitors enjoy what I'm 'serving'. When my audience has been 'fed' enough quality information that they begin to trust me, I would hope they would consider making a purchase through me, either by buying something I've created or purchasing something that I recommend.

In short, it is up to you. Treat it like a business. Make it your passion and you can make $100/day on the Internet...for real!

Its all about passion..... ya I have heard about this many times; passion, dedication etc etc, and every time I come across these words I start to think about myself. I too want to do things and also have some idea but I have obeserved in myself that I tend to start things with good planning and enthusiasm but when I get stuck somewhere while working on something then I loose my enthusiasm and patience and the work would come to a stand still. Is it that I am lacking passion or is it that I am pushing myself to something that I am not supposed to do or is there anyother problem?

My question my sound like the one that should have been asked to some counselor but I just thought, since you have written this hub so maybe you may help me !!

Actually, the difference between passion and enthusiasm is persistence. There will always be ups and downs even with your passions. Sometimes is just means taking a day/week/month off to clear you head. Come at it with fresh eyes.

Another approach is to talk with someone who is not as invested in your work who might give you some fresh ideas. I often will talk with my wife about my web site and what I'm in the process of doing or more likely what I'm stuck on! Better yet find someone who knows nothing about your subject and ask them. I used to have a boss who was not burdened with the limitations of technology. As his chief engineer I'd often find myself explaining to him why something could not be done but sometimes after my first reaction I'd find myself saying well maybe that's not such a dumb idea! With the internet there are a number of ways to search for outlets and sources of fresh ideas.

One last comment, it does sound like you might be pushing too hard. Don't give up. Let you brain process while you take a break. Then get back to it and push through the barriers, keep moving forward even if it is not exactly where you may have planned. Find others to bounce ideas and get the juices going again.

Good luck and have a prosperous New Year!

Sorry I am replying so late. Had got busy with some work. Thanks you so very much for your reply Tom. Your idea to talking to someone who is not involved with my work or my kind of work makes sense as they will be able to see the picture from a different horizon and will be able to point out my shortcomings and will also help me come up with some better and out of the box ideas.

And yes thanks for boosting my confidence in the last comment you made. Great to be your fan! :)

I use the word "determination". I am determined to get out of the punch the clock rat race and I will. Nice Hub.

Genuinely good advice - everyone is always looking for an easy way but there isn't one - yes it is down to you - the only thing I miss about working from home is lack of work colleagues but I just make more time for family and friends instead.

Thanks Juliette, Every Dime I've earned on the internet has been hard won. The thing I like is that the dividends keep coming and growing the more I work. It goes from $100 to $200 etc. Each month it grows. I guess I'm a tortoise when it comes to internet but it works for me.

What is it you do to work from home?

Angela_1973 - Thanks for stopping by. I'm kind of taking the tortoise route...I do about $10/day at this point but I'll get there sooner or later. Best of luck to you.

Hi Tom T, came back to leave my comment. You are right about the passion, two of my hubs that I wrote at the very beginning still get a lot of traffic. I wrote them based on my personal experience and travel. They don't bring me a lot of money, but I like that people read them and leave comments. Sales hubs I wrote with passion about products I am familiar with actually make sales. I wish I had passion for diamond rings as this will bring you really good commission. :)

Thanks Angela_1973...just keep writing about things you love...The money will come. I've staked my internet business on this and though it is slow, it seems to be steadily growing. Keep up the good work and I look forward to hearing back from you in a year telling me how much better things are for you and your hubs!
