make money overnight! You need to start small and once profits start coming in re-invest.


Affiliate programs

This is one of the most popular ways to make money online. All you need is a theme-based website and

targeted internet traffic. Many companies are willing to pay you if you promote their products in whatever

way you can. – Of course spamming is a big NO, NO. – To do this, you first need a theme-based website with

a specific topic. Think of something that interests you, like your hobby or your previous work,

write an article about it and post it on your website. After your website is up and running, with all the buttons

functioning the way they should be, sign up with a company as an affiliate.

The company you sign up with as an affiliate should be selling products or services that are relevant to

your website’s theme or topic. The company will then give you a link to post on your website,

it may be a banner or it may be just a text link. After you posted the company’s banner or text link,

keep in mind that the company will not pay you by just posting their link.

They require you to get them visitors from your website to buy their products; this is where you get your commission.


The real work begins.

The key to success when trying to make money from affiliate programs is targeted internet traffic.

What targeted traffic means is that the visitors on your website should be people who are interested in what

you are discussing, and since what you’re discussing is relevant to the servicess offered by the affiliate

program you are promoting, visitors might consider buying something from the affiliate company.

To get targeted traffic, one of the most common and easy methods is by writing articles and posting them

at article publishing websites. Always include your website’s URL after every article you write.

Do not just write an article about anything; this will not get you targeted internet traffic.

Write about something about your website’s topic. By doing this, readers will be interested in what you’re

advertising on your website.


Taking Online Surveys

Companies will actually pay you just to get your opinion about their products.

Surveys are like product research and development; companies are using the internet to get people’s opinion so

they can effectively sell their product or services. All you have to do is sign up with a survey company and

then they will send you surveys via email.

Most companies will pay you five to ten dollars for every survey you take, depending on how long the survey is.

The number of surveys that will be sent to you are low, so it is a good idea to sign up with as many survey

companies as you can to get a sufficient income.

There are more ways to make extra money online; some of them require you to store products.

But if you want to make money immediately, you definitely should consider affiliate programs and online surveys.
