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!
