Here Are Novel Ways to Earn – Making Money Online

Virtual money these days is no longer confined to the virtual world. Some of them now have their monetary equivalent in the money we normally use in the real world. Well, "normal" is a relative word here since most people still use one form of virtual money (a.k.a. PayPal money or e-bank money) to buy very real products or services without having the need to convert the virtual money to actual cash.

However, what most people do not know yet is that you can generate income by actually making virtual money. Sounds impossible? If this was proposed to you ten years ago, it might still sound improbable; but here are novel ways to earn, making money online.

1. Log on to game sites that need virtual money which can be converted to currency that can be deposited in e-banks.

Gaming site like Zwinky utilizes very real money to buy into some aspects of the game, but does not convert it back to re-usable money beyond that virtual world.

On the other hand, gaming site Second Life can create transactions that utilizes Lindberg money (the currency used in the game) which has monetary equivalence in most e-bank. A word of caution, though; it may take a pretty long time before you can start earning money this way.

Basically, you need to set up a virtual identity, and virtual money earning business as well. So unless you dedicate most of your time in Second Life, you better not quit your 9-to-5 job just yet. However, when you have things settled in your virtual world, your earning potential is equivalent to the time you dedicate to your virtual business.

2. Gold farming on WoW or selling virtual goods to other gamers.

Online gaming communities are still very much at odds with each other over the issue of gold farming in the World of Warcraft. Gold farming basically constitutes playing the game on an almost 24/7 level, and selling the gold you accumulate by putting it up on e-Bay. Regular players of the game usually can get the needed game currency by repetitive actions like "mining for gold."

But these take a long time (and we mean 100++ hours long.) Naturally, the more gold you have, the better equipments, tools and armor you can buy for the playing character in the game. Depending on the going rate in e-Bay or other sites that trade off services, a gold farmer can earn as much as $100 a month.

There is also a growing trend among other "farmers" to sell virtual goods or currencies to legit gamers in other online games. Mostly, the trade-off is for virtual currencies only. However, if the gamer is willing to shell out more dough, the "farmer" can create playable characters with top level skills and armory.

Again, this type of work would entail lots and lots of man hours in front of the computer; not to mention an active e-Bay account and a serviceable PayPal account. If gaming is not particularly your thing, you may want to seek other job opportunities at the classified ads of your local newspaper.

    Work at Home and Make Money

    Is it possible to find a work at home business that truly, well, works? The answer is yes. But, this is a conditional yes. The simple fact is there are many online business opportunities that are more interested in getting your money than they are in helping you make money. One of your first priorities when you look for work at home options is to avoid being ripped off.

    One way to avoid being scammed is to work with online businesses that have a proven track record and have been ranked by outside reviewers. Maverick Money Makers is one such program. In fact, this affiliate marketing program offers many benefits that you do not find with other programs. For example:

    Some affiliate marketing programs allow you to get started for a low fee then sock it to you later on for what can amount to thousands of dollars. If you decide to not pay those future costs, you have only one option and that is to bail out of the program, losing your initial investment in the process. Maverick Money Makers does not do that to you.

    Maverick Money Makers is one of the most affordable work at home business opportunities available. As of this writing, the cost to enroll is less than one hundred dollars. You would have to look long and hard to find another online business for that low price.

    Another benefit to working with the Maverick Money Makers program is its simplicity. Some affiliate marketing programs can be complex to learn and just as complex to operate. Maverick Money Makers is very easy to set up, and offers video tutorials to help you get it up and running fast. You will also find a dedicated customer support system in place should you have any questions about the program. Again, this is something you do not always find with other affiliate work at home programs.

    One of the major benefits to working at home, especially for single parents, is freedom. Once you have the Maverick Money Makers program up and running, it pretty much runs itself. Of course, you do have to put in some time if you want to maximize your profits, but this program does allow you a lot of freedom as to when you work the system. Many of those using this system prefer to work during the day while the kids are at school. Others prefer to work at night when the kids are in bed. It is up to you, really.

    If you would like to learn more about Maverick Money Makers, visit my review site where you can find out much more about this very profitable work at home program, Go to http://www.BryansReviews.com/ and click on affiliate programs reviews.

      Make Money From Website

      Making Money From Advertising

      If you look at many websites, you will probably notice that there are banner advertisements displayed on most pages. If you are a newcomer to the scene, you might think that you must either be a company or that your site must be famous before you can get advertisers, just as it is the case in hardcopy publications.

      In reality, anyone with a website can get advertisers. While it is true that if your site is well-known, you may get companies contacting you to offer to advertise on your site, you can get advertising revenue even if you are just starting out and your site is relatively unknown.

      The way to do this is to join as an "affiliate" of various sites, either directly, or through an affiliate network. An affiliate network is simply an intermediary where you can select from a variety of advertisers.

      Payment Schemes

      Before joining any program, you should probably be aware of the different payment schemes available.

      Pay Per Impression

      Here, you are paid according to the number of times the advertiser's banner is displayed on your site. The amount you earn is typically calculated based on the number of thousand impressions of the banner (impressions = number of times the banner is displayed), often abbreviated CPM (cost per thousand, with the M being the Latin numeral for thousand). That is, $5 CPM means that you get paid $5 for 1,000 displays of the banner. In general, the amount paid is usually small, but it is easy to earn since everytime a visitor loads the page, you earn. This is known as a "high conversion rate". Needless to say, this method will allow you to automatically earn more if your site attracts a lot of visitors.

      Pay Per Click

      When you are paid per click, you are only paid when visitors click the advertiser's banner on your site. The amount paid is usually higher than the pay per impression scheme. Whether you get a high conversion rate here depends on the banner (whether it attracts people to click it), although in general, it has a higher conversion rate than the pay per sale method. A high traffic site will probably enjoy a higher click rate than a lower traffic site, although you will probably get better results if your banners are carefully selected to suit the target audience of your site.

      Pay Per Sale or Lead

      While you will probably get the highest payment rates with this method, it has the lowest conversion rate of the three schemes. You will only earn if your visitors click through the banner and either purchase an item from the advertiser or take some other prescribed action (eg, sign up for a service). Like the Pay Per Click method, you get much better results if you carefully select your advertisers to suit the target audience of your site.

      In general, to avoid wasting resources in issuing cheques for very small amounts, advertisers will usually accrue the amount owing to you until it reaches a certain level (such as $25) before they pay you.

      Where to Find Affiliate Programs

      To join an affiliate network or program, simply go to the site and complete their online application form. Some programs will give you instant approval while others require a human to check out your application before it is approved. Once it is approved, you'll be given some HTML code which you can cut and paste into your web page. Note that some affiliate networks and programs will not accept you unless you have a domain name.

      How To Choose An Affiliate Program

      How should you choose an affiliate program? My suggestion is not to choose a program according to the payment scheme, but rather according to the kind of people who are likely to visit your website. For example, if you are targeting parents on your site, links to affiliates with educational software, books and the like may generate more revenue than banners that link to web hosting companies. The most important rule of choosing an affiliate program is to know your target audience.

      Another point to consider is whether you really want to join every single affiliate program that comes your way. Some studies suggest that sites that make the most money from affiliate programs are affiliates of only a small handful of programs. Furthermore, concentrating your advertisements from one network may allow you to be paid faster. If you advertise for hundreds of different affiliate networks on your site, you may wind up earning only (say) a few dollars per month from each network. If your advertiser's minimum payment amount is higher than what you can earn each month, it may take you a long time before you accrue enough to be paid.

      On the other hand, that formula does not necessarily hold true for every site (or every page on your site, for that matter). For example, if your site has a particular theme, and an affiliate network only supports one or two suitable advertisers, you might want to sign up for a few affiliate networks so as to get a greater number of relevant advertisers. After all, advertisements that are relevant to your audience are more likely to be taken up than general advertisements. (What's the point of putting banners from only one affiliate if nobody is going to click them?)

        Making Money Online – How to Survive Your First Online Disappointment and Still Thrive

        It happens all the time. You think you have found the perfect online business opportunity and you quickly join up, with visions of finally making money online. The hurt of losing either money from your pocket, or not getting paid the money you earned can be devastating. What is happening here is a loss of trust and and of money. I am going to share a few tips on how you can survive this type of online scam.

        Surviving any online scam that cost you money may cripple your ability to either do business online or offline in the future. We all survive and live through our abilities to trade. In doing our jobs, we trade time for money. Online, we trade our time and expertise for money. If you are going to continue making money online, you really have no choice but to survive a scam that is perpetrated on you. Let us see how it is done.

        First, my story. I joined an affiliate program with a very popular guy in the Internet Marketing circles some years ago. This was around 2002. He had a number of popular products, and I found out that with little effort, I was able to earn around $400.00 in affiliate commission quickly. But the wait for his commission quickly turned from gleeful anticipation to jarring disappointment. He was not paying. Pretty soon I found out that he had 'locked shop' and disappeared with all the commissions owed to me and most of his other affiliates. To say I was disappointed is an understatement.

        Here is the best tip to survive an online scam like this. Don't trust individuals with no proven history, to manage your money for you. Whether as an affiliate owner or investor, people can go bad quickly. Actually they were crooks all along, you just did not know it at the time. Instead of relying on affiliate programmes managers I don't know, I now work with proven companies that have a solid history, such as ClickBank LinkShare, and Commission junction.

        Another lesson you can take away from an online scam, and still be brave enough to make money online, is to learn the lesson quickly and move on. I can honestly say that I have forgiven this fellow and I'm so over it. But I am no longer crippled by this. I am a better marketer and a better person in all of this. Even when you work hard for your money, you can still fall victim to crooked characters online.

        Limit your exposure by simply not dealing with someone without recourse. Using payment processors like PayPal and Credit cards can limit your exposures. Sending money by money-transfer services to strangers is just plain silly.

          How To Make Money From Boxing

          If you want to make money from boxing, I suggest you *don't* follow in the footsteps of Lennox Lewis.

          As I write this in the spring of 2007, it's rumoured that Lewis is considering a comeback in his 40s.

          Lewis is that rare beast, a heavyweight champion who retired with his title intact, but they always say that fighters can't give up, and the lure of a big payday is tempting him.

          It's rumoured that he could get $25 million for one fight.

          Now that's a lot of money, but I don't suggest that you should get into the ring to make money from boxing!
          Let's face it, it is only the very few elite that make a lot of money, and most of them end up broke!

          So, if we're not getting into the ring, how else can we make money from boxing?

          I want to cover 3 methods, including the technique I use.

          Firstly, you could take up boxing promotion.
          Remember how I said that most champions end up broke?
          That's because most of the money seems to end up with the managers and promoters.
          Although there seems to be a lot of money there, this is a route for the long term only - it would take years to build up a business of any note, and then you'd still have to compete against the few who seem to control all the big fights.

          The second method, and this is much more realistic, is to become an affiliate.
          As an affiliate, you don't need a website, you don't need any stock, you simply send traffic to other companies' sites, and they pay you a commission of any sales generated.

          There is a huge variety of things you can be an affiliate for - from equipment like gloves and training gear, to tickets and pay per view subscriptions (this is where the bulk of the Lennox Lewis $25 million would come from.)
          There is also memorabilia, books, dvds, posters, etc.
          In fact one of the consistently best-selling sports posters is of Ali standing over Liston in the ring.

          So although this can be a good revenue source, it has the downside that you are competing with all the other affiliates.
          Great for the company concerned, not so great for the affiliates.

          The third method is the one I use, and it's to provide information.

          Boxing fans will spend money - that's proved by the pay-per-view model, so if you can provide information on how they can earn money to cover their expenses, you have a willing market.

          How about if you showed them how they could earn enough money to make trips to see the fights in person?
          To buy all the books and videos they'd want, to indulge in collecting memorabilia - do you think they'd be interested?

          You bet!
          Information can be produced and delivered without cost nowadays, and this is why I use it myself to make money - there is no reason why you can't too.

          Hopefully you've seen some various ways of making money from the sport of boxing- you can get further details by following the link to my guide below.
