With all the economy's recent troubles, many people have found themselves stuck without a job and financially struggling. Because of their problems, combined with the lack of available jobs, many of those unemployed people are searching the Internet for ways to make money.

If you are one of these people, you have learned first hand that there is so much information about ways to make money using the Internet. The two most common types of opportunities are affiliate marketing and freelancing.

Affiliate marketing falls under the residual income category. It is designed to let you earn money consistently, without having to put very much effort into it. The major misunderstanding with this type of opportunity is that you don't have to do anything.

Affiliate marketing requires quite a bit of effort in the beginning. This is due to the fact that not only are you searching for information to help you through it, but you are also investing the time that it takes to set up your affiliate marketing campaign.

Setting up websites, blogs, and ad campaigns takes a lot of time. Once you get everything just right, however, then you can relax a bit. Most affiliate campaigns will require a little upkeep, but nothing compared to the time you put in at the beginning.

Another common type of Internet income opportunity is freelancing. As a freelancer, you are paid by companies who need to have specific projects completed. These companies are hiring freelancers on a per-project basis, which saves them on the bills that it takes to house in-office employees and also on the costs of hiring in someone full-time for something that only requires short-term work.

Most freelancers are writers in some capacity. There are freelancers that are web specialists and can make quite a bit of money designing and setting up websites, or helping an advertising campaign. There are even people and businesses that hire virtual assistants. All work is done through the Internet.

You have the ability to devote as little or as much time as you need to make the income you desire. Unlike affiliate marketing, it is not a residual income opportunity. You only get paid by what you do, similar to in-office positions.

There are even many individual people or companies that are looking for long-term relationships. If they are happy with the results that you provide, they will use you over and over. They will also spread the word about your uncanny abilities which only earns you that much more money.

There are many websites that offer free sign-ups for freelancers. A search for freelance databases or job listings can bring you to many. Also try searching for outsourced job listings. Be wary of companies that charge you a fee just to send recent postings to your email. This is not good. You should have the ability to search postings in any area that you have experience in.

The bidding process for a job should also be free. Those sites that offer freelancers free services make their money through charging a percentage of what you would make to the employer, also called the buyer. For example, if the buyer agrees to a rate of $100 for a small project, they are actually paying you the $100 plus a fee that is usually around 10% of that. The fee goes to the company and you get your $100.

There is no opportunity offered on the Internet that can provide you with instant wealth. Those that claim they can are most likely scams. It is imperative that you do your homework and learn as much as you can.

Read articles from other people. Check out a company thoroughly. Ask for references, if possible. You may have to dig deep, but by researching everything, you are ensuring that you will make money instead of losing more money that you don't have to lose.

It takes one to know one in the affiliate marketing business. And I only work with people I know. Look at the short cuts my friends have put together. Clickbank Pirate | Is a little known strategy for autopilot income A guaranteed strategy is always a good idea.

I look forward to your comments and questions.

Ciao,
