Hmm, more writing?!? Yep, you guessed it. But this, again, isn't very difficult to do. In fact, it can be easier than idea #1 since you only need to write up a 300-500 word article that showcases a particular product you are an affiliate of(see Money Making Idea #1). Or, if you really want to pull in the cash, try writing up some articles about something YOU have created yourself.
B-u-u-u-T, if you really want to make some great profits, then how about writing up a collection of, say, 10 articles and selling them? That's a great way to make some quick loot. And, to prove it works, have you seen all those "PLR Article Packages"?
Yeah, they include Private Label Rights so that people who purchase them can add their name as the author and change up the content to fit their needs, but the point here is that they SELL, and sell WELL. Keep that in mind. Now, does that mean that once you sell these articles you can no longer use them for your own web sites or articles? No Way! You can STILL use them. But a bit of advice, change up the articles by adding NEW content to them so they are different from the ones you sold. You'll have better luck with them as far as selling something through posting the aritcles go.
Even though you can also make money by giving your articles away for others to use in a packaged set, like some other free membership sites do. Which is another fantastic idea that has more than just one benefit, such as, building your own mailing list of perspective buyers, using the "upsell" to get your current members to purchase your other goods from you, and so on. These free types of memberships are great for using Money Making Idea #8 too!
All right, now you know the approximate length the article should be, but what about format? Meaning what should the article look like when it's finished?
The main thing is for the article to flow in a logical way. In other words, it should make sense to the reader and not jump all over the place. It should have a POINT and lead your readers to take a specific ACTION.
Oh, and of course it should be in the classic: Beginning, Middle, End, format. And ALWAYS remember to include a 'Resource Box'. Here's a quick example of a resource box for you to use in your articles:
About The Author

He has also begun an extensive free training program for aspiring writers at his own website located at: www.yoursite.com that all writers are encouraged to sign up for as placement into this free program is limited. John can be contacted anytime at his personal email address: email@example.com .
Lastly, what should you write about? Here's the easy answer, pay attention, because it's so simple, you just may miss it. . . .
Yes. You can effectively write an article on any subject you like, so long as it fits in your scheme of subject matter you are specializing in. Although, you can also 'break the mold' and write on an entire different subject matter each and every time you write up your own articles. Nothing about making money online is ever set in stone and you can always go in a different direction. This is what is called 'carving out niches'. And many people do well by leaving the creative door open, so to speak. But, you should always KNOW what you are writing about if you ever want other people to take you seriously as an "authority" on it.

This is number one for a good reason. It is the easiest, and cheapest way to earn money. However, you will have a considerable wait time before you see your profits in earnest. Meaning, when you use this money making idea, as an affiliate, you will have to wait anywhere from 7 to 60 days before receiving your commissions.
What is involved here is to become an affiliate, or promoter, of an already existing product(s) and earn commissions from your work as the affiliate/promoter. The simplest way to do this is to write up a product review about a particular item, include a link, this would be your specific affiliate link, forwarding your potential customers to purchase this product, and earn your commission payments.
To select a good product you will need to take into consideration a couple of things:
1. Does the product fit your specific subject matter or 'niche'?
2. Is the affiliate commission payout at least 50% for you?
3. How long will it take for you to receive your commission payment?
4. How are the affiliate commissions paid out(i.e. - by check, PayPal, etc.)?
A terrific place to begin your product affiliation search is through ClickBank. And, since CB also offers payments made via PayPal(https://www.paypal.com), it is a much more favorable choice among product creators. If you do not already have a ClickBank account for the purposes of being an affiliate, or 'promoting their products', then simply sign up for a free account from ClickBank Here(http://www.clickbank.com).
Afterwards, begin searching through the ClickBank Marketplace to see which products you are interested in promoting. Don't worry about where you will be promoting them, that will come later. For now, simply select a few products to get you started.
A good rule of thumb is to write up one product review at a time and add them to your list of product reviews day after day. This will give you better search engine ranking because you will be adding new content on a regular basis, and give your personal web site, or blog, wonderful, and helpful new content to your visitors daily. If, however, you cannot do this on a daily basis, then aim for every other day, or every 3 to 4 days to add a new product review.
Notice in the last paragraph I gave you the 'wheres' to list your product reviews? No? The answer is simple. . .On your own personal or business web site or online Blog. Your site does not have to consist only of product reviews, unless you have elected to set it up in this manner, but you should have at the very least a separate section created just for product reviews. And, it should be done for both 'normal' web sites and blogs.
Another great way to 'show off' your product reviews is through your own online forum. Most cPanel web hosts offer 'push button' type forum set ups, so this should be easily done without incurring any additional costs.
Plus, if you don't have your own web site that you can set up your own forums on, you can always find a forum that offers you a chance to post up your free product reviews on.
Now that you have the 'whats' and 'wheres' down, we're left with the 'hows'.
In order to write up an effective product review, you need to know what you're talking about. Otherwise, no one will believe you and consider your reviews as 'sales pitches'. Of course, this IS what they are, but part of being a successful marketer is knowing how to finesse your audience. It's not that you AREN'T being truthful, it's that you need to write FOR your audience and THEIR needs.
Okay, so where can you find information for your product review at? Well, if the product creator has an affiliate program and they have taken the time, they will have pre-written materials you can use to help serve up an informative review. If not, go back to the main source, or the sales page and start scanning it for ideas you can incorporate into your product reviews.
This way, you still don't have to pay out anything to get your hands on a copy of the product to write up a review about it and offer it to your visitors for free. It's free to write, free to read, and free to be forwarded on to more detailed information(i.e. - the sales page). And, hopefully, you will be able to generate a sale or two from your product review!
Is this the ONLY way to use a product review? Nope! You can also create a 'special report' consisting of just a few pages giving your personal opinions and praises to a particular product. Remember, the most effective product reviews are those that cater to the 'WIIFM(What's In It For Me)' factor of your prospective customers.
Creating a 'special report' is actually a really simple process. You write up your product review, pointing out the most important 'why should I buy this?' factors to your readers, using NotePad, WordPad, Open Office Writer, or any other word processing tool, convert it, once completed including your affiliate link(arguably the most important piece of the report ;-) ), into a PDF file and give it away to everyone who wants it. Now you have a 'viral' product review that will be spreading around as fast as people can give it away! And, a wonderful place to begin giving these away if you don't have your own web site or online blog is through forums. Although, you will need a place to store your report for downloading. TradeBit(http://www.tradebit.com) offers a free account, as do MediaMax(http://www.streamload.com) and File Lodge(http://www.filelodge.com/refer.php?referrer=ebe01). Again, all the services mentioned above are free to use. So you still have paid nothing out of your pocket, and still don't have to have your own web site. Pretty good, eh?
Here's another idea. If you have your own ezine or newsletter, why not try sending out a product review to your subscribers every once in a while? You should try to avoid 'selling' to them and instead 'informing' them of why this product is a great purchase in your opinion. If you are their 'respected authority' on the subject matter, then they will more than likely take the time to at least ponder your opinion and might even decide to purchase a copy of the product you are reviewing. And, if you happen to throw in some type of 'subscribers only' bonus or discount, all the better for them. And, the more receptive they will be to your reviews. It happens all the time my friend. Believe it!
There are plenty of inventive ways to use the free product review to earn yourself some easy profits. Take some time to brainstorm and see what you can come up with.

Plus, you need to be savvy enough to steer clear of the plethora of online 'make money from home' scams that are ruling the internet roost, and ruining the great money making ideas available to you. And, in this section, you're going to see each of them explained as briefly but effectively as possible in order for you to get started ASAP with them.
Each idea that is outlined for you below is designed for you to utilize them immediately, how much money they will cost you realistically, and a round about time estimate of how long each will take you to complete.
Now, before you begin, it's important for you to understand that some of the ideas listed below have been in use by plenty of successful marketers for quite a long time now. And, that they continue to be put to use because THEY WORK! In fact, these ideas in question have managed to earn some internet marketers well over 5 figures MONTHLY. Does this mean you will be earning the same? Most likely not. At least, not when you are first beginning anyway. As time goes on, you will be able to earn as much as other marketers IF you stick with it and not give up easily.
Also, it must be said now that you will not find any type of 'online auction' type of ideas listed below. The reason for this is because they are more 'money-suckers' than 'money-makers' in the grand scheme of business. It may not be apparent at first glance, or to someone not familiar with all the costs of running online auctions, but, if you do decide to go this route, it will become increasingly evident that this is indeed true. If you are in need of such a guide, then I highly recommend this free report.
With that said, let's begin taking a look at the best money making ideas. . .

First off, let me begin by saying that anyone in the world has the ability within themselves to become an online money making genius. All kidding aside. That is the reason for the title of this particular guide. Sometimes, it only takes a few little outside ideas to get your inner genius going. And then, "Watch Out World!".
Seriously, any person, no matter their social or economic status can earn money from the comfort of their own home. Where it becomes difficult is to be pointed towards the right direction when getting started.
As far as how much you can earn, well, that's entirely up to you. Only YOU can determine what your profits will be. And of course, everyone in the world is their own individual, so, it stands to reason that the amount earned by each individual will vary. With that said, how much can you expect to earn? I would have to guess anywhere between $0.00 to $500 and up in any one to a few months time. So, there's plenty of room in there for you too along with everyone else already earning money from home.
Honestly, you have to ask yourself "How Much Do I Want To Earn Online?", and "How Much Time Can I Dedicate To Reaching My Money Making Goal?". Ask yourself those two questions and you can have a pretty good estimation of how much you may be earning online.
Inside this guide are the absolute best ideas for generating money from the comfort of your own home without the need for wads of 'start up cash' or immense amounts of time set aside. The purpose of this guide is to educate those that may be new, or at least new-er, to the concept of earning money online with your computer and an internet connection. A process that is also more commonly known as "Internet Marketing". Of course, this is the simplified version of this term as it has many rich facets to it ;-).
And, of course, to give you a 'head start' towards the ways in which earning online profits from home is possible without being scammed, or taking years to learn the process.
I do want you to read the information in this guide and go away with the knowledge that it is entirely possible for you to start earning some sort of income online and have some ideas presented to you that can help you achieve that goal. Then, in time, you will be able to devote more to your earning potential and shoot your profits up and up and up.
Hopefully, this guide will steer you where you need to be so that you too, can become an online money making genius.
