I've been searching around looking for the best way to make extra income

I have been searching around looking for the best way to make extra income online. I have read a lot about Google ad sense, ad words, and affiliate programs. Are these the best way to make money online? And could someone explain exactly how ad words work?.......... you have to pay per click so how do I get paid? I've heard of many people who make sufficient living off of Google alone, of course I am not going to quit my day job but is this feasible somewhere down the road? Thanks for your input guys!

    Adwords is pay per click. What you do is, you pay google and they send you traffic.
    Say you have a website selling product x. You make $100 per sale. But if you dont have enough ppl coming to your site, you would not make any sale.

    Here adwords comes in. Its a form of advertising your site to google users. You pay google on per click basis. Say you Spend $20 getting 100 visitor and you make one sale out of it, profit = $80.

    That pretty much sums up what adwords is. You can extend this concept to affiliate products where you sell someone else's product and earn commission out of it.

    But my advice, if you are new to internet marketting, stay away from adwords till you gain some knowledge about it. Else you would lose out on your money..

    Ok, for adsense earning and how to get some money outta it, check this thread.

    yes i "know" people who make ****loads with AdSense, i myself am not.

    I think that its a mental "blockade" to think you need to spend money to get started w/ earning. I see it all the time...people make the mistake to THINK they need to buy THIS or THAT product, THEN they are able to start making money.

    This is wrong and its the wrong attitude.

    What you need is an idea, the desire, some strong coffee and whatever you have already, your PC and your brain. Investing you can do later, spending parts of your income for ads, outsourcing etc..etc.... but NOT beforehand <----

    rose: Squidoo lenses, blogger blogs, writing articles, putting banners up, signing up at aff programs like clickbank, get products, write reviews, getting traffic...does NOT cost you one penny, basically.

    Also..PayPerClick advertising needs some skills, its not a magic way to make money. If you paid for 100 clicks and you didnt make one sale you will see Despites my efforts w/ AdWords, i see that most of my aff sales actually come from organic traffic, eg. to my squidoo lenses where i review products, things like that.

    "Organic" visitors from Google which go to some good review blogs seem to have a better "buying mentality" than your occasional AdWords clickers, imho. Especially if you managed to rank well in Google for some "xxxxxx review" keywords.

      Well, she's had nearly 3 years to figure it out.

      There are some confused answers here on this thread.

      How to make money online without any investment ?
      Provide a service. You are going to need to invest some time, but it can be done without actually investing any money.

      I have read a lot about Google ad sense, ad words, and affiliate programs. Are these the best way to make money online?
      Not necessarily. But they are all different components that can be explored.

      And could someone explain exactly how ad words work?.......... you have to pay per click so how do I get paid?
      It is paid advertising. You don't get paid to use it. You pay, just like putting an ad in the newspaper.

      In order for a site to be successful in earning money online through Google ads, it has to have good traffic.
      Wrong answer. You pay adwords so you can put up some ads on targeted keywords and get traffic to your site.

      In order for it to work effectively for you, you need to have a page and an offer that convert. You also are in a sweet spot when you can find a keyword that costs pennies to advertise on.


      Tell me, can you put up any real business without spending any money?

      Why does it have to be different online?
      The question here was not how do I build a business. It is how to make money online without any investment.

      Not everyone is looking to build a business.

    Where one isn't able/willing to make a monetary investment, the degree of effort invested will have to be that much greater. It is entirely possible to make good money, though, with no investment, but it will take time, motivation, patience, and the willingness to balance learning with taking action. Those who spend all their time reading and learning, sometimes never actually put what they have learned into practice. On the other side of coin, there are many who rush right into things online, without truly know what they are doing. But, yes, you can definitely make money online without a (Monetary) investment.

      Yes I agree with the reply above. If you seriously want to make money online you need to put some investment at least for "domain name" and "hosting". Since people nowadays are really smart and selective while doing business online. How you expect for people to doing business with a company who don't want to invest for them self?

      You can find so many blog and mentor who are willing to help you making money online with minimum investment. One of the blog I recommend for you if you want to make money from Adsense is nichepursuits.com I already learn so many useful information regarding making money with Adsense from this blog.

      Good luck and hope see you around here coz people inside WF itself can help you in future.

      Fortunately it is different online. You don't really have to any time either. It's clear you can get upfront cash by doing jobs, then invest on your real business. I do not agree with you. The beauty of the web is that a average person can make money for them selves without really having to spend first. A real go getter can do it! And many have already.

    Yes you can do many things for free online, however it is often a lot slower and less effective.

    E.g. You could spend your own time writing 30 articles and manually posting it to article directories, or you could pay someone to write them and post them for you.

    Both achieve the same result, just that doing it yourself may take days and weeks of your time.

    To begin with it's good to do things yourself to gain experience (and save money), but once you know how something is done, it is much more effective use of your time to outsource the mechanical work to someone else, while you just run the business.

    One Internet Marketer said: You want to be the general of the army, not the solider in the trenches.

    In order for a site to be successful in earning money online through Google ads, it has to have good traffic. The more readers, the more chances of your ads being clicked.

    If you want easy money, you can freelance. Or you can write in Factoidz. Writing product reviews may earn you as much as $15 per article. And you can get the earnings the following month through Paypal.

      Ettiene, excellent points; but I empathize with the OP. Even though some investment is required, sometimes it is difficult to judge where to put our money. If you are a newbie (like moi), its easy to get confused in the plethora of information available.

      But yes, you can start without money, but its difficult to go very far.

      step 1) build list

      step 2) build trust and relationship with list

      step 3) Offer great services products

      step 4) repeat steps 1 - 3

      This.

      I got some change and didn't buy coffee for a few days in order to buy a domain name and a few months of hosting to set up my first review blog. I spent ~$18. I understand that money's tight, believe me, but it is worth it to get more of a proper start in my opinion.

    The only way I can think of to make money without investment is providing services. Freelancing can give you the money you can use for starting up a new website for affiliate marketing. Try oDesk and apply in jobs that you are interested in. You can apply for hourly and fixed jobs, it depends on what you prefer.

    Paid methods are usually the kinds that will make the money. Investing and loosing your ass the first few go arounds are just part of it. There's free traffic methods but they take more worker and take more time to see results. For you I'd recomend learning more about everything, then when you feel like something appeals to you focus your time on that. Don't stretch yourself too thin and always take action.

    You could start a blog at Blogger.com, throw some Adsense code all throughout the blog, post everyday, ping the search engine services (pingomatic.com), and drive traffic to it. A Blogger blog is free, and Adsense is free. For an example of what a blog like this would look... look in my signature below and take a look at my Blogger blog.

    google adsense must be a great way to make money passively, also affiliate marketing if you don't have money for the investment, just invest your time, it's the greatest investment

    When looking for a "best method", you can start by defining what's important to you, and what your current skills and abilities are.

    For example, since you don't have money to invest, that narrows the options, which is a good thing! Some systems, such as selling Ebooks, need very strong sales copy, to have any chance of working, so be honest as to whether that's something you can do well, or not, if not then great, that narrows the options even more.

    There are plenty of free ways to make money in IM, including Fiverr, WebAnswers, Squidoo lenses, certain types of article or "bum" marketing etc. All of those can make some some money you can then invest in more efficient IM systems to make money.

    Something like a Squidoo lens can be a good learning experience, because you can apply things like keyword research, backlinking, choosing the most effective tags, and more. It is certainly possible to make good money using a free Squidoo lens, for example, one that I made, generated a profit of over $130 in a year, from about 2 hours work in total, and much more than that is certainly possible.

    Choose a method which looks suitable, and DO something. You'll learn far more by taking action, than trying to understand everything perfectly before you start.

    If you are REALLY serious about making money then you will do so. You can start with nothing by getting a blogger blog and throwing some Adsense up and doing some SEO to it. Scale it when you are making money and go from there ...

    It's totally possible to make money over the internet without investing a dime. As already said, doing services is a very nice way to start. The money you make through it is very small, but if you believe in the concept of delayed gratification and invest the money you make from it, it will in turn make you money. To keep it simple, make your money work for you. Its a very big process, but works in the longer run. Its up to you, "do you want a free fish or do you wat to learn how to fish"?

    Good Luck

    Hi there,

    I don't if there's any best way, but creating a squidoo lens is definitely one of the way you can consider doing now, especially when you're just starting out on your IM journey.

    Use your squidoo lenses to promote amazon products instead of clickbank etc - It works extremely well with amazon, what's more.. it's FREE!

    Hope this help, may God bless you,

    Get a free blog from Blogger.com. Add adsense all over it. Write everyday to your blog - preferably about 400-500 words long. Ping the major search engine services everyday after your posts (pingomatic.com). Submit your blog to all of the blog directories online. Submit your RSS feed to all of the RSS feed directories also. Did i mention to write everyday? Anyway, drive traffic to it using free techniques.... article marketing, Youtube, forums, SEO, etc. Keep working on it everyday. You'll see results soon.

    P.S. Make a "subscribe" box prominent on your blog so that people can subscribe to your blog, and get email updates everytime you add new content to your blog. Hope you can get someone with this.

    It can work if you test that out, you just have to get creative, but it will take work. Go figure...you're paying in time spent searching for free alternatives either way it's still the same.

    I have been searching around looking for the best way to make extra income online. I have read a lot about Google ad sense, ad words, and affiliate programs. Are these the best way to make money online? And could someone explain exactly how ad words work?.......... you have to pay per click so how do I get paid? I've heard of many people who make sufficient living off of Google alone, of course I am not going to quit my day job but is this feasible somewhere down the road? Thanks for your input guys!
    How to make money online without any investment ? Without any investment? ummmm Can not be done, time is investment, my time is worth about 30 dollar's an hour now, how much is your time worth. Can you make money without putting out money, probably a little. Can you make money with just time, not much. It is getting harder and harder to market yourself each day that passes.

    Whereas there were literally hundreds of thousands of websites in the early ninetys, now there are millions and millions, and everyone wants a piece of the internet marketing world.

    Money I usually pay to promote a website that starts out.
    This is just the usual stuff.
    forum posters and bloggers, I never use software any more.
    ads, weather for design graphics or sales copy
    videos
    domain name
    website building.
    lots more costs but you get the drift.
    Even when I do make money with adsense and without a website, I usually lose money at first till I get a good line that works.

    One trick I will use sometimes though is if I see a product or promotion on tv I have never seen, I will jump on the computer to see if it can be monetized with affiliate commissions or otherwise and start an adsense campaign, I have done pretty good with this but you have to be quick.

    Adwords requires spending money as you are paying Google each time somebody clicks to your site (with the hope that they buy something at your site to make it worth your while), if you are looking for ways to make money without spending any, you could try the likes of Fiverr, and offer a service (you can get plenty of hints from those already offering services)

    The only possible way you could make money without an initial investment is offering your services. In case you don't have a specific skill you could always head to Fiverr and offer something for $5. Get 40-50 usd and then purchase some exact match domains in low competitive niches, write unique content, do some linkbuilding and start earning money via Adsense and other CPA offers

    You can definately make money but not in amounts you would hope to make. The forumula is money +effort + time = $$$. But your using the forumula of effort+time = $. the money reinforce your efforts and time and It can possibily half those amount if used properly

    There are lots of different methods to make money online without investing any money or just a minimal amount on listing fees. These are the ones that I personally have had success with in the past:

    1. Selling things on eBay
    2. Selling books on Amazon Market Place
    3. Selling services on Fiverr

    Once you have made money why don't you reinvest the profits and scale it further.

    But if one wanted to sell something -
    a website is required right?
    and that would not be free right?

    Without any investment? Do you mean without investing your time and effort?

    Impossible.
