The Easy Way To Make Money Online

Updated on May 23, 2012

If you are not making any money online, it might be because you are not taking advantage of the many "easy way to make money" sites. Given a choice between the hard way, which is obviously the way you are taking since you are not making any money, and the easy way, why are you choosing the hard way? Isn't is obvious that you can't go wrong with the easy way?

And if for some reason you want to give the hard way a try, why not try the easy way first? I mean, if you can't even make money the easy way, what makes you think that you can make money the hard way?

But, the first thing you need to do is to find an easy way to make money site. This is not as simple as it sounds as there are many sites out there with deceiving advertising. They tell you their site is an easy way to make money site, but when you really give their system a try, you find that you need to put in a lot of work and ingenuity to make real money.

While not foolproof, there are some characteristics that distinguishes the legitimate easy way to make money sites from the fakes:

Flash Animation
If the site has a classy flash animation, with many references to your dreams of retiring early, having more time to spend with your family and to do the things that you want to do, that site is probably the right one. The right site would be very interested in pushing your buttons to get you to sign up rather than explaining what its business is all about.

If you have viewed the flash animation, and gone through all the pages of the site, and still only have only a vague idea of the product, you have found a promising site. The best sites would not even bother talking about a product.

Countdown Timer
The countdown timer should be found very close to the "Buy Now" button. It counts down the time to the close of the offer. Invariably, you will always have about 1 or 2 days left. Go back to the same site a few days later and see if the countdown timer has actually counted down and the offer is no longer available. Make sure that the offer is still available and that it still shows the same number of days.

Limited Purchase
The real sites will probably use a gimmick like limited purchases allowed. Once there are sufficient number of purchases, the offer will close or maybe sell at a much higher price. You will see an initial value of, say 500. The 500 will be struck out and replaced by, say 245. Again, the 245 will be struck out and replaced by 36. So you must act quickly. Once there are 36 more sales, you will lose your chance.

As you have done with the countdown timer, you want to go back a few days later and check that there are still the same number of purchases left, confirming that the limited purchases allowed is simply a gimmick.

Bonus items
You will be offered many bonus ebooks worth many hundreds or even thousands of dollars if you make the purchase. The ebooks will probably not be relevant to the site and it will take you years to read through all the ebooks, but remember that the bonus items are to entice you to sign up, but are not meant to boost your business in any way.

No experience Needed
No experience is needed to complete the tasks that are going to make you thousands of dollars a month. The tasks that you have to perform are so simple that your 6-year-old can probably do it. in fact, the better sites will not require you to do anything at all. You simply need to pay the $9.95 subscription fee and their fully automated software will earn thousands of dollars for you.

If a site mentions that you have to be pre-screened first for relevant experience, or if you are asked to produce an official certification from a college or university, run away. They are going to ask that you do real work for you to get paid. And we all know that real work is hard work so that's a hard way to make money site.

I have just mentioned some of the characteristics of an easy way to make money site. There are a lot of these on the web, so it is just a matter of you looking for them.

Reality Check
In case you have not figured out already, that was a tongue in cheek guide on all the wrong sites. Do not follow the above advice. It is unfortunate but these sites are all over the web, misleading newbies and giving the impression that all easy money opportunities are scams.

There are many legitimate sites that is up front with you about the prospects of making easy money on the Internet. For instance, take my site about earning easy money on the web. I introduce several ways in which a relative novice can make good money but also highlight that some skills would be needed and that not everybody will be able to do it.

Take your time, use your common sense and you will be well on your way to making easy money online. But, most of the time, the easy money comes only after some very hard work.

      Dalelorenzo - You're right. And it does seem like free money to be able to put up some code on a website and earn from clicks. That is, until they find out the amount of time and effort it takes to attract enough traffic to make the time and effort worthwhile.

      Alot of new programs are leaning towards no money involved code lines making webmasters out of everyday people.

      Google Adsense and is a no out of the pocket money maker.

      Edwin Clark - I know. Many join such schemes as a last ditch effort to make money, and they get conned out of their last dollar. :(

      Good info! There are far too many get rich quick schemes advertised towards folks who desperately need ways to pay the bills. This hub is perfect for informing them.

      Hi Dalelorenzo, that sounds like a great idea. I would look at it as a "hard way to make money" idea, but then, most easy to make money ideas don't work. Thanks for sharing. :)

      I have made some decent money using my three main blogs with Google AdSense. But here is a great method I have been using to make money online.

      I purchased a digital product from the ClickBank marketplace and reviewed the product. Once I did this, I followed what I read to see if I would get the same results the writer did.

      I did a short video teaching others what I learned and then made a recommendation to purchase the product at the end of the video. Of course, I only created a video for the products that actually worked for me.

      Since these products did work for me, by watching and following the video, you will also benefit by seeing a dramatic increase in conversions.

      Then I recommended this product through my own affiliate link. This way I could earn commissions on what others sold. The best way I found to do this was to purchase a meaningful and memorable domain name and redirect the domain to my affiliate link.

      Then overlay that link in the video.

      I usually post my videos on my blogs and send it to my mailing lists to make money. But if you don't have a list, then upload it to YouTube and everal other video sharing sites to make you commissions.

      It's a great technique that's worked for me.
