Making serious money online isn't as easy as turning on a computer

Copyright © Michael Laleye

Some people would like to tell you that making money online is as easy as turning on your computer. They might not say it like that, but they'll tell you something like "This is the only program you will never need." Or, "We'll give you everything you need to make money at home." They never tell you up front how much time it's going to take, how much money or how much knowledge. These things are all items you need to know before you start to try making money online.

It's not to say that programs that make these types of claims aren't good or even great, but you should know what you're getting into. The first thing you should understand about making money online is that it's never going to make you rich overnight. It can make you rich, and you can make money overnight, but the odds of you getting rich overnight are about equal to you getting sent to prison for fraud, embezzlement or the like. Knowing this right off the bat is going to put you in a better mind set than most people who try to start a business online.

While you may be desperate for cash, desperation is not going to change these facts. If you need a large amount of cash overnight, look somewhere else. But you can start earning income quickly with affiliate programs. Look for programs that pay via PayPal so you can get quick access to your money.

You don't have to have one source of income, or even one type of income. You may make some money from affiliate marketing, you may make some money taking surveys or selling items on ebay. Just remember that making money online can be done in many many ways, but it all takes time and effort to really bring in the revenue.
