      Yes you can earn money online for free. You just have too find what business you are interested in doing and complete research.

    there are other ways to earn money besides adsense.  affiliate marketing can earn money too. if you are talented at writing you could sell articles, if at drawing you can sell drawings, and so on....

    Earning money online is very real.  The only problem is too many people do not realize you need to work your butt off and treat it like a real business.

    Its hard to know who and who not to trust because of all the scams on the internet.

    You are not going to make thousands of dollars over the weekend at your kitchen table sitting in your pajamas.

    Before you get involved in anything please take the time to do your homework.

      I think that if we treat online business seriously, we gonna succeed somehow. Most people just don't get this point straight, all they want is fast results, but don't want to put in any effort and when they fail, they will tell the whole world that online business don't work.

    One way to eliminate some rip-off situations is to keep in mind that you should never have to put up any money at all.

    There are some job-match sites (for someone who can do the kind of work they're looking for) where they will request the client pay up front, and they hold the payment until the worker has completed the work satisfactorily.  Then the worker gets the money.

    There's always some risk that an online company will go out of business (or something like that), but every one I've always been paid (at least so far).

    I guess the real question might be, how many of you have actually made money online? And how much did you actually make? Give me numbers! Also, what percentage of people are making money online who are involved in an online business?

      I do actually make money online.  I wont say how much I make but lets say I can pay every monthly bill I have with my affiliate marketing.  I still have a day job but that is only because I want that to go towards extras and retirement.

      I make money through multiple streams of income but my biggest earnings comes through affiliate marketing.

        Same here.  Writing articles is only one small part of the equation.  Affiliate marketing is a bigger part and much more time consuming.  I've logged some 16 hour days and several years building up multiple streams, but my biggest earners come from my own products, services and websites.

    Yes you can make money online. Yes you can making a good living just working online. But that is the thing WORKING. Just like with any join it requires work along with a different mind set and last but not least organization for yourself. Setting goals and getting them done each day. For example today I will write 2 new hubs, create a new squidoo article, post 5 articles on other article web sites, back link them all do keyword research and MORE. Its a job and its not going to come overnight.
