The first lesson you need to learn about making money online, is that you won’t get rich quick unless you are very, very lucky. I guess a lot of people think they will make money within several weeks and get rich quick. The sad truth however is that in most cases that won’t happen and it can take several months before you start earning any money at all. It is only online crooks and cyber criminals that can make such lofty promises.

Before you start your venture in making money online think about the time and effort you will have to put in until you make your first dime. Remember that there are certain legitimate free programs that can make you money. But  you also need to keep in mind that although some of the others are supposedly free, you need to put in a huge amount of time to master it. Time after all is money, and it therefore carries an intangible cost.

Making Money Online Niche

The making money online niche is saturated with a good few people that know what they are doing. They have great websites that are search engine optimised, and drawing in loads of traffic. This makes it more of a challenge for you as a newbie, to get your own website ranked well on money making search terms.

Making Money Online

There are loads of niches out there that can make you money and my advice would be, than when you start off, to choose several niches not related to the make money niche. The top ranked marketers in the make money niche know what they are doing and it could take a very long time to get your site ranked anywhere near their top ranked sites. This does not mean that you should not at least put up a demo or experimental site to test your ideas within this money making niche.

Drive Some Traffic to Your Money Making Website

Before you even think of making money online you will therefore need to have a site or several sites online.   You will also need to drive some targetted traffic to these sites. Try and get as many backlinks to your site as possible and make proper use of the anchor text. Exchange links with other sites in your niche and post your links to directory lists.

Also submit several articles with backlinks in them, to reputable article directories and make use of long tail keywords. These are phrases containing between three to five words and focusing on exactly what people are searching for i.e. “how to increase website visitors”.

Additional Ways to Making Money Online

There is an abundance of affiliate programs you could choose from, with most of them paying a commission or offering an amount of money per sale. Adsense is another way to turn your website into a money making machine. Whichever way of making money you choose it is about both the amount and quality of search engine traffic you drive to your site.

The myth of getting rich quick with making money online, needs to be dispelled with the contempt that it deserves. Online marketing success, requires you to have a system that has proven to work, the appropriate supporting processes, and your inner will and self-belief that it is possible.

This website has specific links to numerous online money making opportunities that has stood the test of time, and has proven to work for both newbies and experienced marketers. It is only when people do not have an online marketing strategy, coupled with  a proven opportunity, that they fail. They then put the blame of their failure on so-called gurus who mis-lead them in the first place by making unreasonable claims of getting rich quick.
