It’s easy to get led down the wrong path. Especially when you are new to internet marketing and the whole process of making money online. Doing a quick quick search on Google for the easiest way to make money online reveals many promising results. But we don’t always get the best advice online.
If you have ever spent any amount of time trying to make money online, then you may already know that its not as easy as many of the internet gurus would have you believe.
For as long as I have been in the internet marketing scene I have seen so many trends come and go constantly. There are always new pieces of software, methods, systems and loopholes for making a quick buck online. In reality its actually part of what keeps the internet marketing industry going. Its also what keeps the review section of this website going!
So what is the easiest way to make money online? Do you keep searching for the one product that turns out to be the one that finally changes your life? Or is there a simpler way to go about creating an income online?
What Is The Secret To Making Money Online?
Over the years I have seen so many crazy products. Many offer the route to easy street and almost all fail to deliver. The real way to make an income online to to create a genuine, honest business. It might take a little time and effort to create, but its better than wasting your time on the latest scam. In the long run, starting an actual online business creates a real income for life. Using ethical methods will give you a far greater sense of fulfilment and will produce better results in the long term.
Stay Away From Shiny Objects!
Most people are naturally drawn to the prospect of easy wealth. Being able to be financially free in a matter of days or weeks is the goal for many. The reality of making money online is that you can write your own pay check. The sky really is the limit if you do things the right way. Unfortunately the shiny objects that have tempted us all at one time or another only serve as a distraction. Focus on creating something that really produces the desired results. Something that you can be proud of.
Aim For A Long Term Profitable Business
In my opinion there is an easy way to make money online. But it will only become easy once you have overcome the learning curve. For best results you need to base your idea around something that you are passionate about. The amazing push button wonder software applications that are launched every month are at best a quick fix. Most of the time they are nothing more than a disappointment. Making money quickly, even over night is possible. But you need the right training and knowledge to make a long term profitable business.
Skip The Disappointment
If you are serious about wanting to make money online and you want to skip the disappointment of another failed online project then you should seriously ditch the idea of quick riches and get your head into long term mode!
The easiest way to make money online by far is to concentrate on what interests you the most. By simply choosing a subject that you know a little about or that you have an interest in will give you a great basis for building a website or online social media group that can be monetized.
The easy route to creating your dream online business is not always the fastest way to making money online. Taking the slow route and building something that is both appealing to you and your customers will in the end save you time and the disappointment of another failed get rich quick scheme.
The days of being able to scam the search engines or find a quick fix loophole for a fast few dollars are history. Today’s internet requires a specific way of building an online business in order to maximize your success and there is no place for fast fixes, trust me!

I am so glad to find this article. In a world full of entreprenuers so many give up. But to make a living off websites, blogs and social media we have to press on and keep moving forward even when it seems like nothing is happening. I am at that place myself. I am glad I am not alone and I am taking the high road to a successful business. I would love to learn more about you have learned. Lets keep in touch!
Hello Caroline. One of the main things that leads people to giving up on their online business dreams is the fact that sometimes you just can’t see any real results right away. There are quick fixes to make a little extra money online but if you want to do it properly and build something long term, then you need to build authority and trust with your readers and also with the search engines. This takes time and effort. It might take you a couple of months before you see any results, it might take you six months. It all depends on the niche that you are in and the amount of time that you can dedicate to your business.
There are lots of people that have felt exactly the same as you, many times before. Some give up before they reach their goals, whilst others push on to success. You can only find success by trying your best and not quitting when things get tough.
You’re welcome to ask whatever you wish Caroline, keep in touch!
Well I just want to say thanks for the great info here and I hope that there is much more to come. Its true, people do look for the easiest ways to make money online, I think its just human nature. Have you ever thought about writing a book on making money online? That would be cool, I like your writing style.
Thanks for the complement, no I hadn’t really considered a book. I’m rather busy building the make money online zone up at the moment. But who knows in the future??
Great article that puts making money online under the microscope and gets to the ‘guts’ of the matter. Unfortunately there will always be scam artists out there for one reason – scams work and work WELL. If they didn’t they wouldn’t exist online. You say you’re from the UK Andrew, where abouts? I’m in Wales ( Cardiff ). Also a Karl Pilkington fan lol.

Thank you Yvonne! You are of course quite right, there is no easy way to success as people commonly think of it. But in fact if you base a business on something that you love to talk about then it might not be easy and you might not make a fortune over night, but it will be easier than trying to work some crazy system that was only ever designed to take your money. The key to making an online business easy is to enjoy what you do! Thanks for your input Yvonne, I appreciate it.

I agree totally with what you saying. There are too many scam artists out there using old-fashioned sales techniques and luring people in ( I know as I was one of them!). The best way to succeed online is, like you say, to steadily build up your presence in something that you are interested in. You don’t have to be an expert in the field you are promoting, just have a passion. Once some basics of how to write, market and promote online have been learnt my advice is to get started and the rest you will learn on the way. Great website Andrew thank you.
Thank you Michael, I really appreciate your input. You are quite right, you really don’t need to be an expert in whatever it is that interests you. You just need the ability to talk about your interests and ideas, it doesn’t really matter how good you think you are, what matters is connecting with people and sharing your thoughts. And yes, scams are plentiful online right now and its really difficult for people to be able to tell the difference. I hope you will join us again Michael!
