Additional skills like being able to take care of infants or tutoring kids are a plus and would definitely result to increased wages.

There is nothing wrong with making promises but if it’s misinterpreted or if it is abused, it can turn into a really bad thing.  Take for instance all those work-from-home and business opportunities related to making money on the Internet.  Essentially, they are all promises at the beginning and while some deliver, some remain as promises, nothing more.

Making money on the Internet can be the real deal.  Although there are fake opportunities (you might already have encountered or heard of some), there are real jobs and businesses you can participate in and earn from.  The critical thing is to make sure you know what’s out there so you know what to expect and what to avoid.

What you can expect to find

There are plenty of opportunities to make money on the Internet.  A few sampling of what’s waiting out there include:

  • Advertising
  • Data entry
  • Online paid surveys
  • Skill-based jobs
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Retail and wholesale
  • Consultancy and coaching
  • Internet services

These and hundreds of other jobs and work-from-home business opportunities abound.  Your goal is to find one (or a few) that give you the best match in terms of the skills you have, the work required and the income.

And there are even some that don’t require a lot.  Non-skill-based jobs such as data entry and online paid surveys, allow virtually anyone who has access to a computer and the Internet to earn extra income.

Online paid surveys, for example, accept participants belonging to a wide range of demographics.  You could be a teen or a senior in your 80s and still earn.  There are no restrictive requirements regarding education, background or physical characteristics – you simply have to know how to use a computer so you can make money on the Internet for your opinions.

Legitimate ways of making money on the Internet are also backed by real companies with real people.  Companies may choose two ways to get in touch with you – directly or through a third party.  You can participate in a company’s affiliate program, for example, or post ads on your website.  Either way, you earn.

You can also make money on the Internet using your skills.  This is how writers, photographers, designers and programmers earn their income, whether they are in it full-time or part-time.

What you should avoid

If you suspect an Internet money-making scam, there are warning signs you can watch out for.  Learn what these signs are and protect yourself.

Quick-buck schemes

Yes, there are ways you can make fast money on the Internet but this mostly involves the sale of a product or the completion of a task or project.  If there’s nothing you have to do or if the offer involves some vague, ordinary task that doesn’t pay much even through traditional venues offline, be very wary.  A scammer just might be courting you.

Upfront fees

In some opportunities offering you a chance of making money on the Internet, there is a corresponding upfront fee you will sometimes have to pay for.  These will often cover for membership fees, such as those paid for MLM companies.  Established companies like NuSkin and Forever Living, for example, do require upfront fees upon membership.

However, there’s no need to pay someone an upfront fee just to gain access to information you can actually get for free.  Some sites, for example, offer you resources on work-from-home businesses and charge you a fee.  Turns out, the information is nothing more than a listing of websites that you can access with just a few seconds spent on a search engine.

Too much money

Look, there is nothing wrong with wanting to earn more money.  What person in his right mind has not considered the possibility of earning more for his efforts?  Unfortunately, this tendency is being used by very unscrupulous individuals – hence, offers of making money online are peppered with promises of huge amounts of money pouring into your pocket if you follow a system, subscribe to secret method, use special equipment, become a member, etc.

The rule of thumb is this: if you think the money is too good to be real, you’re probably right.  Just remember that if all these money-making ventures were real, everybody who owns a computer and has Internet access would be rich by now.

Bad standing

When it comes to making money on the Internet, it often pays to be a bit paranoid, if only to protect yourself.  If you find an opportunity online that seems to promise something legitimate enough, it can’t hurt to search information about it prior to commitment.  Go online, search for the company’s name, check its standing with the Better Business Bureau, look up the type of job being offered or go to a discussion forum and post a query there.  Someone is bound to offer you sage advice whether or not the opportunity is real or not.

There are essentially two ways you can start making money online: through a skill-based job and through a non-skill based job. Either way can be rewarding financially and personally. Millions of people from around the globe have found online work to be fulfilling because it offers them options that are normally not available with traditional types of work.

Why making money online is a good choice

No one discounts the benefits of making money the traditional way. However, earning an income online is an excellent option. It offers an individual or a business owner access to a platform that is low-cost, faster and more convenient. Where else can you find a job that lets you become your own boss, keep a work schedule to your liking and wear something that would otherwise be frowned upon at the office?
