    Hi there If you want to start making money online, i would suggest that you get your own website. There are a lot of ways to earn money from a personal webpage. Ads, affiliate marketing etc. You can also sell your own product like on my web page <snip /> You need google adsense to get the ads for your webpage. I hope that pointed you in the right direction.

    Sincerely Dean

    try to sell stock photos stock photos are relatively easy to take and once you’ve posted them to your stock-photo account can make money fairly passively.

    If you are making a website for news then you can show up news by different people on paid basis. Or can do advertisements of different companies by dealing with them I hope you know about techniques like pay-per-click and affiliate marketing.

    Noah,

    All the members here have posted great ideas. I think your best bet is to focus on what you already know as a means of making money. You can try all these other things but if you aren’t really that into them, you won’t be as successful as you could be and the moment you face some obstacles, you are more likely to give up. Think about what it is you do well and try to find a way to monetize it. For example if you like to write there are lots of sites online that offer freelance writing jobs. If you like to be active in social media, perhaps you can bid on some jobs at elance. Your passion may have nothing to do with the internet but you could still utilize the web to make money with it.

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn

    There are a lot of ways to make money online. Freelancing, blogging, affiliate marketing, forex, social networking, forum posting, article marketing, google adsense, ppc advertising, infolinks, neobux and cannot end by posting here. It depends on you what you will choose according to your skill. But, I suggest you to make website or blog and create some valuable content and do some seo. Then apply for google adsense.

    Smile

    Here's a real life example about making money online.

    A friend of my has his own Facebook page (with a 1 million likes) and opened a blog at blogspot.
    He's promoting his blog by placing links to it on his Facebook page and has around 10-12 thousand daily visitors.

    Now, he has put an AdSense that pays him quite a lot - he can live from this money without problems.
    And what do we have in the end?

    Now, he's thinking about putting Nster widget on top of this to make even more

    The morale of the story - making money online is all about the quality and quantity of traffic that you have.

    What you can do to save time - start a Facebook page (you need a great content though), pay other large groups to share link to your page (you can get up to 15000 visitors per link) and quickly grow your audience.

    When you got it:
    1. Start a blog on couple platforms (e.g. blogspot & tumbl)
    2. Promote these blogs through your Facebook page
    3. Start AdSense
    4. If you can't start AdSense for whatever reason, put a nice looking widget to monetize your traffic.

    How much you can make completely depends on you - but if you take the guy I'm talking about, he's making $70-$80 per day from 10-12 thousand visitors which is not bad at all. (keep in mind that he still get's paid from paid links on his Facebook Page)

    Anyhow, please let me know if that was clear & useful

    Be more specific - earning is never simple. It takes a lot of time and effort.
    What affiliate programs are you talking about? Online, offline?

    Elaborate please.

    An industrial printer and special paper that I import from belgium.

    Oh wait, you mean... right. Forget I said anything.
    Never grow up. The instant you do, you lose all ability to imagine great things, for fear of reality crashing in.

    By help you mean tech related guides, software, etc?
    Also, imho there are already tooooo many IT, SEO, SEM resources online with the obvious monopolists like Techcrunch, Mashable, Wired, and the other big boys

    Back to the topic - if you want to make money and claim your niche on the market, you have to give something valuable to the people first.

    Take nster.com for example.
    Originally, it was an IT company that has decided to make a free tool to help people grow their websites.

    So it has made a widget that allows websites to do different traffic operations (buying/selling/exchanging) or simply rotate their best content on their website to increase pageviews and engagement of the audience.

    Due to the absence of the price tag and the way widget blends in any website's design, this small side project has now grown in the full scale department within the company.

    Or take a look at Unbounce - they have started off as a self-service marketing tool, but now they have just a wonderful set of resources to help SEO & SEM folks to make page, write content, etc.
    Also, their blog is amazing.

    If you want to make money online, at some point you have to give something for free so people will recognize you and start working with you.
