One of the best ways to make money online, in addition to surveys, is to join an affiliate marketing program. What happens is merchants want people to direct traffic to their websites, and essentially sell products for them. An offline analogy is someone who stands on the corner with a big arrow sign pointing to a pizza shop, but unlike the guy making minimum wage you get a piece of each sale you make.
Where do I start?
You can start by making your own niche site. A niche site is dedicated to a specific subset of an industry, like car insurance or car sales, as opposed to being a site about cars in general.
Once you have your site up, you need to get some content. You can do the writing yourself or you can find guest bloggers. I personally use GuestBlogger.com to get guest bloggers for my sites and to get my articles posted.
Okay, how do I start making money?
You can make money by signing up for affiliate programs, whereby merchants will pay you a cut of each sale you make. Popular topics for affiliate marketers are financial topics like credit reports, home insurance, and mortgages. Fitness sites and dieting sites are also popular. Just make sure that you actually enjoy writing about whatever you choose your site to be on!
