How To Make Money Quickly

A friend called me the other day to ask me a question about making money quickly on the Internet.  Before I go any further, if you know me you know that I do not advocate this business as some kind of a quick way to make money.  With that said, I will answer his question with the context that it still requires time and effort (at least some).

I’ll give you three techniques today.  Remember, these are not the best or worst ways to make money online, they are just some of the quickest.  They may not all work for you – it would depend upon where you are with your Internet marketing business.

(1)  Affiliate Marketing.  Affiliate marketing allows you to get started quickly because you do not need to have any products of your own, and you don’t even need to have a website.  Find a product you want to represent that has an affiliate program (or use an affiliate network to find a product), and promote it.  You can promote it for free by writing articles or blogging (to name a few), or you can pay for traffic using PPC.  [WARNING:  Do not use PPC if you do not know what you are doing.  It is just as easy to lose money as it is to make.  Don’t say I did not warn you!]

(2)  Advertise on your website.  This technique requires that you have a website.   The more traffic you have, the more you can earn.  You can sell ad space directly, or you can use Google Adsense (or similar network) to place ads.  Adsense is easy because you just post a snippet of code and Google will place ads relevant to your niche automatically.  You will notice that I use Adsense on this website.

(3)  Ebay.  Yes, ebay!  Do not think of ebay as just a place where you go to sell your old junk from your basement.  Ebay is a powerful marketing machine.  It’s quick, easy, and inexpensive to set up and you already have what many believe to be the hardest part of Internet marketing – driving traffic!  Find (or make) a product that you can get at wholesale, and sell it on ebay.  As with other forms of Internet marketing, the more unique your niche, the easier it will be to build a profitable money machine.

Ok, so there you have it… three ways to make money quickly on the Internet.  For most of us, ebay will be the quickest way of the three.  If you have questions regarding any of the three, post them here and I will answer them.
