Terms, like the title of this post are often extended to say things like, how to earn money online free or how to earn money online fast is a good one. Others include the words without paying or from home.

Earning online is a broad concept, and from the perspective of earning money, it involves participation in various types of partner programs to earn an income.

If you decide to go into dropshipping, it involves partnering with a supplier. Copywriting or content writing, you need a client. Affiliate marketing you need a product.

No matter which you choose, the above is a basic truth in the online world or the offline world.

The Potential to Earn A lot of Money.

In this whole industry you can sometimes see people who earn a lot. This doesn’t mean that most people earn a lot on the Internet.

Most people simply remain anonymous and don’t boast about their earnings. Some may put something up in a group as a motivating piece. Like this.

Generally though you will see people, who put photos of cash and statistics screens of their better months online, but at the same time, they don’t publish their costs.

This can give impression that making money online is easy. When in fact the failure rate for those opting to go it alone is quite high, somewhere above 90% I have read at different times.

One reason is “shiny object syndrome“. People bouncing from one scheme to another, without giving any of them a chance to work.

Other headlines say how to earn online with surveys or something similar. You’re talking penny clicks, you will make pocket money. If you are serious and want to make good money it is not a good use of your time.

Some people have done very well online following a few simple steps, it requires some skills (you may have some of them).

The Most Profitable Methods of Earning Money Online

Writing content or copy writing can be profitable. Generally people in this niche are just looking for a supplementary income to help with expenses. Often it becomes a full time income.

It is or can be a totally dedicated online occupation, even though many advertising companies still have in house copy writers and content writers.

Drop shipping as I have mentioned, there are still people making dollars on E-Bay, although the costs have become a disincentive for many people. Still it works well.

Statistically, stable income is achieved by a minority.

Instead of looking at it as your life chance, I recommend to see it as a hobby and a way to help you earn some money. Although it is very real that you can achieve a lot, it requires dedicated commitment.

One of the reasons Affiliate marketing has many earning a good income online, is because it has a higher barrier of entry than say dropshipping.

Like Copywriting or Content writing, it takes a little time to become established and making good money. So lets go to…

What do You Need to Start

When I say a higher barrier, you are going to need a website and hosting, a domain name (s), and your website needs to be attractive and search engine optimized.

That all costs money, how much is up to you, and I will put a deal up a little further down.

Plus it needs to have some authority in a chosen niche. It has to be built out and ranking. (a little more on that here).

You might be thinking “Geez, No way, I can barely write an email, let alone build websites“. No problem I have that covered as you will soon see, It is not too difficult. Lets move on…

I want to cover a few terms in affiliate marketing. These apply to any online business actually, where you are calculating the cost of doing business.

Online bookkeeping terms you might call these.

So, before we go getting into the how’s and why’s of doing this ( Earning Money Online to Build a Passive Income), here is an overview of some terms used online in relation to online marketing.

Most Money in Affiliate Marketing is Made on CPA’s

What’s a CPA ? you ask. It is Cost per Action. The $rate for a promotion of the link, the action is performed by someone else. In a nutshell it is the data from a marketing campaign, where you have targeted a keyword of X$ value.

Every time someone clicks on that keyword it will cost X$, or $0.XX.

What to Promote to Earn an Online Income.

High ticket items are extremely profitable for the affiliate marketer.

One buyer coming from a link of yours leading to a $4 – $6,000 item that pays you 8 -12 % of the purchase price is not to shabby.

If you think it is not possible, check out furniture stores or high end art or Jewelry stores.

If you don’t like Art or Jewelry, or you want something with an edge of excitement, there are all the $10 – $20.00 clicks you could earn as an affiliate of a sex or gambling site.

Over a month your earnings online could add up to a tidy sum.

Lets face it the days of brick and mortar retail are numbered for many, as seen by the actions of Pricesmart a couple of months back and Amazon just recently.

The options online are many, and with the way of the world at present and its future direction, having an understanding of websites, how they are built, how they used for marketing, is going to be a good skill to have.
