How to make money from the internet

One would have to be an utter buffoon or just willfully ignorant if he (or she) claims that once you turn to “problogging”, there is no life for you apart from the internet. I really and truly pity such people who prefer to go to an office at 9 AM in the morning, sit at his (or her) desk all day, get ordered around (or scolded by) the boss, and then come back home at 5 PM, dreading tomorrow where the routine would be repeated all over again. For me, it is such people who actually has no life.

But I am not telling you that you should immediately quit your job and turn to blogging and start doing paid postings. I don’t think that this is something that just about anyone can do unless he (or she) has the technical skills, writing acumen to captivate readers and of course, the willpower to weather criticism and ridicule from those who know nothing about it. And one should remember that there are other online ventures that one can earn money from that is not related to blogging, such as selling text links on high PR websites, starting bid directories and making web directories. These are all potential startups for a regular income.

Anyway, there is this article I found called How To Make Money On The Internet. The author gives several ways of how internet marketers have been conducting their transactions online for the past few years and I think that this is something that one can try (for the record, I am slowly venturing into the field). Note this passage:

It’s now just a case of sitting back and watching the visitors and the sales come in. Yeah right! You’ve got to keep on top of your marketing; why not consider search engine optimization to boost your rankings in Google and Yahoo? There are loads of options open to you, and with a bit of time and effort, you can really make money on the internet, and kiss the boss goodbye!

No one said that problogging/internet marketing is going to be easy or that you are on your way to riches. But I personally feel that is better than being a kuli batak to some ignoramous who happens to be your boss!

    i blog when i like, and i surfed net when i’m not blogging…with paid blogging, i’m motivated further to blog, when i know the money is there for me… and with nuffnang coming to picture, i have to built traffic too…

    i guessed once u have the basics (contents, traffic, followers) it’s easier for you get residual income from whatever you are doing with your site… to get that it’s definitely hardwork… unless……you are paying people to do it for you lah 🙂

    i was initially enjoy reading ppl’s blog but lazy to have my own blog. i do think that maintaining was the most difficult part of blogging.

    till i found out the momentum that will keep me blogging, that’s making some money from my blog.

    no harm having some extra income with just blogging…i will keep it up to have my paid post, getting second resources as part of my mothly income was always my dream…wish me good luck for my dream to come true…

    I have read many examples of people making money on the internet. And i am trying to learn more about it and i want to try it. I am a graphic designer and i have some skills on the computers.
    But i am not sure if this is only possible for people in the USA.
    How about people from Europe or small European countries. Does this action applies the same for all people?

    Thank you.

    I’m looking for a native Polish individual who has sound knowledge of the Polish Internet and online marketing experience.
    I am looking for someone who would be willing to work on link building for a Polish website.

    Thus, it is imperative you can read and write Polish and also have a good working knowledge of online marketing in Poland and the Polish Internet market.

    If someone owns a website that sells services only but they only do it part time from home outside of their current job, do they need to have
    a business license in order to operate online?
    The person running the website lives in California but all service is provided over the Internet only!

    I am a web designer and internet marketer and I am contemplating doing a job for a guy who wants to open a Porn site. We are in Texas. I want to make sure that first, is he legally able to film porn in texas. Second, does he or myself need any special permit to distribute porn?

    I am asking since I am the host of the site and I want sure I am covered.

    I already looked on sites with laws, but all you find is child porn crap, which doesn’t even apply to my question.
