Hi this is Jaclyn Mullen from Jaclyn Mullen Media and you are watching About.com. Today we are going to be talking about how to make money online without fronting money.
Generating Revenue without Investing Takes Time
Now I know some of you may be thinking, okay that sounds really, really great and I'm ready to be an overnight millionaire. And I'm here to say that it's going to take a little bit of time before you can actually see some revenue coming through, especially if you're not putting any money upfront.
Monetize a Blog without Investing Money
There are a variety of different ways to create revenue online. One of the first and most simple ways is by creating a blog. But again please note that it's going to take some time for you to build up a blog audience, and traffic to your website, which is the key to you generating revenue.
Act as an Affiliate without Fronting Money
The second way that you can make money online without fronting any money is by acting as an affiliate. Now some of you might be saying, "Okay what exactly is an affiliate?" So allow me to simplify it for you. Basically when you're an affiliate you're acting as a sales associate for a particular product or service that somebody else may have in fact created. There are several entrepreneurs and companies online that have really reputable affiliate opportunities.
So here's how this works. You as a sales associate provide a link to that particular product or service through your blog, social media, or e-mail marketing campaign. If in fact somebody from your audience makes a purchase and clicks through, you get paid a commission from the original seller.
Use Your Writing Skills to Make Money
The final way that you can make money online is leveraging your writing skills. So that's a pretty broad topic. Allow me to categorize it for you. What kind of writing? You can get paid to write e-mail newsletters, you can get paid to write articles, as a matter of fact you can even get paid to write website copy for people. Some people will even pay you to write their Facebook status updates or their tweets. So, don't just stick to one writing source. Think outside the box. You totally can monetize your writing efforts.
Hopefully you found these tips extremely helpful.
