What Is The EASIEST Way To Make Money Online?

50 replies
Hey Warriors,

For me, it's been "Article Marketing" though I've done
a number of different marketings.

What I do is simply create a review site and hire a
ghostwriter and write about 25 articles and submit
them to Ezinearticles.com.

One review site makes me at least 1-2 sales per week.

The more sites I make, the more money I make.

So what is your EASIEST and FASTEST ways to make
money online?

    The easiest? Promise something with huge perceived value, charge a ridiculously low price, then scamper off with the proceeds. LOL Hey, you asked for the easiest, not the most ethical.

    The fastest might be offering ghostwriting (and/or rewriting) services. Virtually anyone can do it and there's huge demand for it. No lengthy learning curve, either.

      Well, if easy and fast are the only requirements, you can't beat just slapping something up on eBay.

      Make a compelling offer and you could have money in your PayPal account within minutes. And just about everyone's got something lying around the house they wouldn't miss (not including partners )

        Well... the way I interpreted "easiest" -- a way that actually works, fairly reliably,
        without much of a learning curve.

        Selling services such as ghostwriting services does work, but as Shalese said, it also
        takes quite a bit of work (unless you outsource).

        Frank's suggestion to use eBay comes probably closest to the Easiest Way, and if you
        want something even easier, (though not quite as predictable as eBay), you may want
        to give Amazon.com Marketplace a try.

        Especially if you have a bunch of books and CDs or DVDs lying around that you are
        willing to part with. One caveat -- unless you're selling a pretty hot book at a good price,
        it may take a bit for something to sell, but on the positive side, you won't have to pay
        listing fees ever, and "only" some (admittedly hefty) commissions once it sells.

          I think CPA is the easiest when planned well. But I'm not talking about cpa networks. I run adwords campaigns for "work at home" sites and collect on sign-ups. Not a life-changing amount of money, but a method you can only improve with.

      Do keep in mind that every printer leaves unique traces, unique as fingerprints, and you'll get busted quickly. Of course I'm sure you were joking

    I have made the most money fast with AdSense on proxy sites and CPA offers on Yahoo Answers.

    However, neither of these are good ways to build a long term business, and are against TOS in most cases.

    The Most productive way is not the easiest way.
    I spent 10 months with a John Thornhill in his Masterclass and we went from A to Z and created our own product, blog. and learned the long way. I just never figured there was a free lunch and on the internet that is also true.

    There are several good ideas above. a lot easier that the 10 month plan LOL

      I'm beginning to think that article marketing has had its day, and that any newbie just starting out will see diminishing returns. I'm on a couple CPA affiliate sites, and as soon as they announce a new email submit I see about 5 or 10 articles up on EZA about that exact campaign, almost immediately. Everybody knows how to submit and they all submit to the same market so more and more people are just splitting the profits.

      It looks to me like article marketing is just like most of the other past trends that worked spectacularly well for a brief while and then quickly faded out when too many people got on board. The adult webmaster boards are full of discussions of past techniques that just suddenly died, like TGP galleries, Picposts before that, and now there are so many tube sites that those are fading out as profit centers too.

      With EZA I'm a bit discouraged by the 10+ day turnaround, but I'm even more discouraged to see how many articles from different authors are up on the main page at the same time for the same CPA or Clickbank offer.

    Well, you may be right. I do see some decrease in sales.

    for adsense conversion. I'm still getting quite a number of clicks

      Ebay DOES work. And not because I'm an "Ebay Guy". It just works.

      But so does all of these methods everyone else has shared in this
      forum.

      It's just a matter of taking your pick and focusing on it long enough
      for it to work. but you don't need me to tell you that, your havign
      success and understand that concept.

      The way I would use yahoo answers now is to build my list. I wouldn't
      even use it to do CPL's. Although profitable, I'm still building someone
      elses list. If anything, capture the lead yourself first THEN send it
      over to someone.

      Now that's a CPA WSO worth buying

    Easiest? Here's the Mr. Allen Says approach...

    1. Create a product... just at least a notch better than the product being sold profitably by your biggest competitor.

    2. Create a marketing system and get the numbers in hand. Get upsells in order, and start getting sales.

    3. Find affiliates and give them 100% of whatever you earn on Day0. Thereafter you get a list of buyers and they get money, and you can promote products yourself later on.

    Easy? Then try doing it ;-)

    but if just for brainstorming purposes on this post then I will suggest to put up as many PLR contents on many blogs as you can, then you can make money by earning ads income or affiliate sales...

    BTW..upload all the contents to all the blogs are not the easy job too

      Well I can't tell you what is easy or fast, but I can tell you what the correct way to build an online business is. Create a product that compliments a bestselling product in your Niche. Let's use a the "dog training manual" if you create a product with the title"10 Tricks For Your Dog" you have built a JV right in the product, because the "10 Tricks For Your dog" compliments the other product.

      Just think how east it would be for you to approach the owner of "Dog training manual" and ask for a JV because you product will compliment theirs. Some Internet Marketers can't seem to comprehend that for some reason.

      Simply, create products that compliments and don't think of yourself as a competitor.

    Creating your own product is a whole different matter (though not necessarily any more difficult), but if we're talking in affiliate terms here, this is all you need to do...

    1. Find yourself an affiliate offer in a competitive market, where the affiliate merchants are scrambling over you and where the competition is so rife that they'll bend over backwards to give you all of the material you need to succeed. "Niche" is fine, but the big bucks are in the competitive markets, that's definite.

    2. Either create your own report, or buy some PLR and jazz it up a bit, so that you've got something to provide the market with. It doesn't need to be a major project - if you can provide something a little bit useful that's fine.

    3. Tie your own affiliate links into the report, then get one of those free, or at least low-cost, PDF rebranding tools and get your recruiting socks on to contact other websites who might be interested in giving it away to their readers.

    4. Set up a squeeze page for people to download it, then create an autoresponder sequence off the back of it to work people into product purchases, where you and the others you've recruited into giving it away earn the commission from it.

    5. Keep seeking out new partners to give away the report, because all the time you're building up your list of people who downloaded it. That's your income, for now and long into the future.

    6. Sell to them, over and over again. Then rinse and repeat.

    You could do this in a day, so in a week you could easily have 5 of these little mini-operations set up and you'd probably be utterly amazed at the results. You could be making money almost immediately, and I'd be surprised if you couldn't turn it into a full-time, and growing, income within 2-3 months. Seriously, I'd be amazed if anyone couldn't do that... it's simple, but it works.

    In my opinion creating your own product and then taking the people leverage is the best way to make money online.

    This is not difficult at all.I was also overwhelmed when I started creating my own product but everything became easy as I continued trying.

    Affiliate marketing is a great thing but having your own product gives you greater flexibility and leverage opportunities.

    Creating your own product and then joint venturing with others gives you the opportunity to make thousands of dollars in a single day(Which I don't think many affiliate marketers can do).I have been doing affiliate marketing for over one year now but I could break the $1000/day mark only when I created my own products.

    I have personally made over $4000 in 24 Hours from a small product launch(I had a tiny list and very few JV partners then ).So nothing works like having your own products and let other people promote it and generate income for you.

    To make the most of your efforts you should do affiliate marketing along with product creation(Because you can't launch products on a daily basis and you can't send affiliate promotion everyday).

    Honestly, I would take an idea or MRR from the war room, Add a bunch of value,
    then sell it on digital point (forum) They dont charge to post in the buy/sell section!
    My only advice is that you get your post count up.

    Besides this, I'd say you can make a lot of money flipping websites.

    I'd also try service arbitrage. If you can find a service on the cheap and sell it on the
    high, your not doing that much but making a good amount....

    Also offline consulting can pay off BIG TIME, and depending on your level of motivation
    you can get clients and start seeing cash FAST.

    I'm going to stop myself now.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers.

            Yup, Anup, I agree with you on this!

            However, it is MUCH easier to work with magazines than books for writing articles for many, many different reasons!

            However, magazines are trickier to find out the copyright status.

          Will a site like this be de-indexed or considered low grade if its full of other types of advertising like Chitika, Adbrite and Kontera? I mean like, the site has autoblog, maybe couple of unique articles just to fire it up for SEO purpose, adsense, chitika, adbrite and kontera all in?

    As has already been mentioned....EBAY.

    You'll find it difficult to make a full time income on there due to the combination of global competition and ebay/paypal charges but you can certainly earn a valuable, supplemental income that will pay for the odd holiday or five each year.

    TIP: If you plan to sell products that are dissimilar to each other such as oil paintings and 1980s remastered CDs then use two different IDs/nicknames. It's important to have a EBAY ID/nickname that is relevant to the product you are selling because then it's easier branding yourself as an authority on that subject.

    e.g. This is purely off the top of my head here : Oil Painting Vendor - SlickStrokes. 1980s remastered CD vendor - SidePartingPete.

    I have seven EBAY accounts using weird, wonderful and often bizarre nicknames but it works for me; plus it was a heap of fun for all of the family brainstorming potential nicknames.

    I think that making money online should be fun sometimes.
