      There is no quantifiable answer to that. We each have our own strengths and weaknesses so what is easy or best for me, won't be for anyone else.

    There is no easy way to make money online, all programs and business opportunities I know require some bit of work and in the right directions too.

    So far so good I think you should tell us what programs you have attempted so far.

    The most common ways to make money online are:

    - Affiliate programs
    - Ad network like Ad sense
    - CPA
    - Web design
    - SEO Services
    - Content writing and much more.

      I agree.

      Anything you do will need alot of work and effort.
      But for newbies I recommend getting started with Affiliate Marketing.

      You don't have to worry about creating a product or even a website.
      The problem you really have to worry about is getting traffic.

    This is the biggest problem with IM - it is so diverse, and lots of different strands make up the broad trm of 'Internet Marketing'.

    If I was you, I would pick up one of them WSO's (probably the one that you deem most actionable) and STICK WITH IT. Forget everything else, just concentrate all your efforts on that.

    Good luck

      Agreed. Pick something and stick with it. You should figure out what your thresholds are to make sure you know when to cut and run and let it go. Just do some planning and go after it with laser like focus.

    Heck, you've barely entered the revolving door to the skyscraper and before it's even stopped turning you want to be on the top floor.

    If your completely new to IM then there is no quick fix that leads to the pot of gold at the end of the IM rainbow. I suggest you look, listen, read and study. Then look, listen, read and study some more. Once you've done this you will at least know what aspect of IM interests you the most.

    Buying WSO is a complete waste of both your time and money as 99.9% of them will not work for YOU. Without even a modicum of IM knowledge how can you ever hope to succeed.

    An old adage states, 'If it's worth having, it's worth waiting for'. Some 6 months down the line when you've gained that bit of knowledge, you may decide that IM is not for you after all.

    I would also edit your user details to include your country location as in previous posts you've expressed an interest in a mentor. Personal transatlantic mentoring won't work, take it from me.

      In all honesty, there is no prettily packaged one size fits all answer.

      You see, everybody has a different set of talents, skills and interests.

      What works well for some, may not at all for others.

      Some are savvy with technical skills and are of an engineering persuasion and could build websites.

      Some are creative with words and have gist for painting compelling copy.

      On the other hand, some are gifted in art and could do well in creating logos and banners however, they find themselves technologically challenged, so therefore can't figure out certain software for creating.

      Some people seem to be natural born sales people, but they dislike affiliate marketing or perhaps being aggressive.

      I could go on, but I think you understand what I'm getting at.

      The best method to start making money online is a combination of skill, talent, likes and passion. So just as every individual is unique in their makeup, so, therefore, is the best method to earn an income online for every individual.

    Create a blog and write whatever you want to write everyday (except port and gambling). Put adsense ads.. If you need more income then create more blogs and write more articles...

    There is no such thing as "best method or fast/easy method"..

    I know when you start buying initially u feel that the courses / products has let you down, the fact is it did not...

    the person who did release the product spent a few months minumum to an year honing, refining the skills, the the key skills in markeitn like copy writing are things we need to start learning slowly day by da , once you understand that and human psycology of buying is when you can start seeing money

    so rather than buying products, start focusing on building knowedge and skills and also you can provide services on places like fiverr with a long term goal of mastering those skills and then applygin to make money (of course other the fact you will already be making money during the service providing aspect).

    it is not going to be short and quick , but if you persist focus on the basics there is nothing more beneficial than I.M , baby steps please...

    For the beginners I always suggest Adsense. Start your carrier in adsense you will get a lot of ideas and you will properly know the way to promote your website. Maintain Google TOS. Then Start other methods like Affiliate marketing. At first you have to learn hoe to work then start making money

    When I ventured online I was clueless about everything. Yes, I got some leads from friends, but it was not enough. I started from scratch, from zero, from square one, how you want to call it. But now I am starting to get used to it.

    I offered my skills as graphic designer and a writer and luckily their are numerous clients who have hired me. Now I'm depending my income in my online career.

    What you need to do is, decide what you want to do. Either, sell something or offer you skill as services for others. Once you have decided then you need to find the perfect niche to it. for products try IM for service try odesk and elance.

    Hope this helps.

    For me is blogging. When you run a blog you can get subscribers easier and have a reason to contact them even every day (eg for your new post). You can promote many products or even the same product each month.

    I'm personally not big on learning business models from WSO's. The ones I've tried seemed to have parts missing. In terms of the best or easiest way to make money online, there's not really a "best" way. It's about finding a legitimate business model and deciding which route you want to take. With that said, I prefer blogging. I like the residual aspect and being able to work around my own schedule.

    Top three things to start making money online:
    1. get a mentor
    2. get a email list started
    3. get a strategy to drive traffic to your site (master 1 or 2 strategies 1st - get a steady influx of traffic - before adding any other strategies to your game plan)

    once you do these things you can decide on what product(s) you want to promote be it your own or an affiliate product that will drive income to your online business.

    You could offer a backlink service on Fiverr or offer to social bookmark 20 blog posts for anybody who orders your gig there, by using Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Facebook, Googleplus, etc. A lot of blog owners would be happy to pay you 5 bucks to bookmark 20 posts on their blog to different bookmark sites.

    Then after you set up your new gig on Fiverr dot com - go to Backpage, CL, OLX and other free classified ad sites and start promoting your new social bookmark / backlink service to blog owners. Spend about 2 or 3 hours placing free ads, and see how many orders you get !

    I bet you will be pleasantly surprised.

    Good luck !

    Affiliate marketing for me is the best method to start making money online; however you have to refer others to join you and these should do the same and so on. If it works well, you'll be surprised with the amount of income you can generate. In order to work well you need the skills to put in place and share them with your downline. No matter what program you join, if you don't have the skills, like over 94% of online marketers you will fail and waste money. The best thing is these skills can be learned on step by step instructions (including videos). My piece of advice is: "Get A Complete Free Step-By-Step Instructions On How To Build And Expand Any Network Marketing Business You Desire With Little Or No Advertising Expense" learn from it and then use the skills for the program of your choice to make money with guarantee.

    Are you looking for a Get Rich Quick Scheme or are you interested in building a REAL business? Most get rich quick schemes are too good to be true. And most don't pan out. REAL businesses, on the other hand, involve Sacrifice and a little PAIN while you learn. If you are interested in a REAL business, I suggest value-based blogging.

    I would have to agree with most people here, it's not easy making money online, and if anyone offers you a quick one click solution...walk away.

    My advice... pick a method, stick with it and take action.

    Having a private mentor will help speed things up, but it may cost. It might be better if you join a forum like www.affplaybook.com dedicated to helping people make money online.

    I always suggest adsense for newbies. It's easy to setup and can be profitable quickly.

    AdSense would make a lot of sense for a Newbie. Also try to stay yourself clear of all the scams going on in the market. You'll find a billion sites helping you make money online, but believe me most of them are pure scams.
    Run a blog, put decent blogs in them about something people love and especially you like. Update it regularly and after some time, it will eventually start giving you money via ads.

    For a newbie, I highly recommend starting out with Squidoo. This is because there is no need to apply for the advertising networks (Adsense, Amazon etc.) when using Squidoo.

    It is also very easy to setup and is completely free to use. Once you write a couple of articles with well-placed advertising modules, build backlinks to the article and you should see some income in the next few weeks. What this does is give you confidence that money can definitely be made online. The revenue can then be easily transferred to your Paypal account.

    However, it is not the best option (best option is to build your own website) and you should only use it as part of your overall IM strategy.

    Hi,

    Risk free methods: to do online survey to earn small amount of money (I earn about 200 dollars per year).

    To be frank, there is no any product which give you guaranteed earning within a short time frame.

    A simple way to start earning: to create a few niche websites with good quality contented, get traffic by using article submission, facebook, YouTube, forum, etc or you can use paid methods -- ads, solo ads, etc. After that, put in monetizing tools like Google adsense, clickbank, paydotcom, amazon etc to get earning.

    If the website is earning decent income, you can either keep it or sell it at certain price on Flippa or other platforms.

    Hope this will give you some ideas on how to earn money from internet.

    Note: it is not as easy as what "internet marketing guru" claimed. There is money free lunch or easy way to earn money online. Don't anything about one push button or autopilot since you need to know how to make it happen before you can do it as autopilot.

    Keep trying until you succeeded.

    I know how hard to earn the first dollar from internet. Once you know how to earn the first dollar, you will know how to earn more dollars.

        I'm not sure about the best method, but the easiest method is probably to create niche mini-sites and monetize them with Google Adsense.

        There are two caveats: (1) the niche should be low-competition with some fairly decent traffic and (2) the niche should consist of site visitors who are looking to buy something -- usually something evidenced by "buying keywords." I'll add that it's also important that (3) there are at least a couple good advertisers willing to pay a decent chunk of change per click through Adsense.

        You won't make a lot of money doing this, but you you'll likely make some, and it's much, much easier to see regular conversions than with affiliate marketing.

        Why would I argue this is the easiest solution? You don't have to be very good at all with site design or copywriting. On the contrary, if your website is bland and boring, the visitors can either hit the back button to bounce back or check out the tempting adsense links and a surprisingly high percentage will go for the clever headline the advertiser has written, which Google does their best to make sure is relevant to what they are searching for. The real skill involved here is with the advertisers who write the advertisements for you.

        This is an easy, good, approach for people who know how to make websites quickly and have access to a cheap hosting account through Hostgator or a similar host. Some of the sites will work, others won't. Since the niche is low competition, you aren't going to spend a huge cash on SEO only to find out that the niche doesn't convert. You'll be able to rank fairly quickly with a long-tail phrase or two. If the problem is that you do not feel comfortable quickly building websites, than this scheme will not be as easy for you as some others.

        Best of luck,

        -- Brandon Martin

  • There is no easy way to make money online. It requires more hard work than others. You may think of PTC, Online Surveys etc. But most of them are scam and does not pay at all. Those who pays well, you will not be able to earn good money from them.

    The best way for me is to work in freelancing and building some websites. Start learning about SEO and Web design from different resources including this forum. Create accounts in freelancing websites. Though it will take some time for you to get your first job but you will be able to earn real money from them. Once you get started there, there will be no more problem for you.

    Use your SEO and web design knowledge to build some micro niche sites when you have free time. Use PPC ads like adsense, adbrite on them. If you can get massive visitors for your site, you will be able to earn a good amount per month from adsense.

    The fastest and easiest way to earn through IM is accepting the fact that there is no such thing. You always have to start from scratch and analayse your strengths, this way you can start with what you know and your expertise. The technique that is working for me, may not give you the same results, remember to keep track of your strategies and progress. So generally, go with what you are good at and progressively study and learn your reas of weakness. Enjoy your strugles because these are what will lead you to your success, finding your own formula of success.

    Hey guess what?... there is no easy way! Some would want you to believe it so that they can sell you products... but don't buy into it... cos you will just keep bouncing from one thing to another... and never getting good at any!

    The best way is to find a proven, time tested process that works... copy it... and do exactly the same to create your own online income.

    I have a couple of great videos that may be of real interest to you... all about a proven formula that anyone can use to get started...it's completely free... and you can copy the formula!

    To get the videos just log in to Facebook then click my signature link below... and they're all yours.

    It will be of great benefit to you....
