Finding a legitimate way to earn money from the internet is a question that frequently lingers on a newcomer's mind. While it is not difficult to see why it is so, the issue remains somewhat mystery to many due to rampant promotion of revenue generating scheme. A newcomer can easily get drowned in the sea of information.
That is exactly how I felt when I started out. Despite the guide and tips from 'experts', I still find myself shooting in the dark or throwing cow dunk to the wall, hoping that one will stick. I realized back then that having the information is not everything; having the right info is.
And that is particularly true to earning money online. The question is: How do you separate the wheat from the chaff?
Here are my top 3 tips after getting involved all these years:
1) Go to places where people already doing online transaction. This might be pretty obvious to you but it is only so in hindsight. What I meant by this is simply going to places, for example online auction place, where people already carry out some form of business transaction and your purchase is guaranteed.
Now, that does not mean that it is 100% guarantee but you probably would not suffer from total lost because these places depend largely on reputation to survive and if their name is smeared and considered not a safe place to trade, it will hurt them more than it hurt you.
2) Check their background thoroughly. This can be achieved simply by doing a web search through online companies that provide information on websites and their owners. If you suspect or see anything that is dubious; it probably is and you better off stay away from site like that. One thing to remember is this: There is a whole industry out there which sole intention is to empty your pocket as soon as possible.
And you will be surprise at the level of mastery possessed by some of the industry players. I will not be surprised if many fall into its trap because they are that good.
3) Come up with your own. If you feel totally overwhelmed by what you see online and you hate every sight of it, the best choice is to come up with your own unique offer. Unless you are aiming only for the money and have no intention to offer real value to others, going on your own is the best thing for you ever.
If you hate being cheated, scammed or conned then offer things that you know you will love to own or be a part of. It is not all difficult as long as you have the burning desire to deliver because believe me; when there is a will, there is a way.
