If you have a computer, an internet connection and a few minutes of time, you can make some money online. Yes, it is that easy – but there’s a catch.
The hard part – and this is what other articles don’t tell you – the hard part is that what you’ll make each time is probably either going to be very little, or very infrequent.
Let me give you an example. Do you want to make $10 right now? Well, one way is to sign up with an online casino. Most will give an incentive for first-time members, usually in the region of $20. The condition is that this money will be required to be placed in a bet before it can be withdrawn. All you need to do is to place two bets of $10 each on odds of 50-50 and you’ll have at a 75% chance of making at least $10. 25% of the time you’ll make $20.
I will not give you any links to online casino websites because I do not condone 마이크로게이밍, nor do I encourage this method. But do a search on Google and you will find hundreds, if not thousands of websites that will give you a bonus for signing up. Just search for “online casino”.
Say you use this method once during your coffee break and once before you leave the office. And say you work 5 days a week. You’ll average an extra $100 per week, $430 per month and $5,200 per year.
Not bad, huh?
In fact, this is the type of information that is sold in get-rich-quick ebooks that advertise how you can make $5,000 per week without any selling. The only difference is you’ll need to do it (very) much more frequently.
I hope you can see the problem with this method, because if not then you may not get what I am trying to tell you. (If that’s the case then perhaps you should stop reading and try it out for yourself.)
This method is good for short term beer money, but not for the longer term. This is because the rate at which you make money won’t increase. In fact, it will decrease because it gets increasingly harder to find new online casinos.
The real way to make money online is to create an income stream that has an increasing rate of return for your effort. I cannot stress on this enough – the RATE OF RETURN is the single most important thing. Let me give you an example.
First, think what your hobby is. Something that you are really passionate about. Let’s just say you’re a fan of cars. You visit an online forum to check on certain opinions. You ask a question. In a separate thread you reply with your own opinion. And you read one more topic just out of interest and leave a comment. This takes less than 10 minutes of your time, and it’s something that you’ll happily do.
Now let’s say in each of your posts you automatically leave a link. Anyone that reads that post will see that link, and might click on it. The link will bring them to a website. If they like what they see on that website, they might buy it – and you will make some money.
The more you use this simple method, the more exposure your website gets. The links that you previously placed will always be visible. And with every new link you place, you will exponentially increase the number of visitors to your website.
In the past 10 minutes you would have left 3 links. Let’s just say each link makes you just one sale per month. In this case, let’s say you make just $2 from every sale.
Now let’s assume you did the same in the casino situation which means surfing forums twice a day, 5 times a week. Within a month, you would have made $258. The next month – remember, the links you place will remain there forever – you will make $516. In the third month, you will make $774.
Doesn’t sound like much, right?
But cumulatively, over a year you will make $82,680!
Doesn’t this sound so much better?
All you need now is a website that sells something that appeals to a wide range of audience. It needs to be able to automatically collect payment and send the goods. It needs to be well written. It needs to be frequently and automatically updated. And most importantly, it needs to be proven to work.
