Proven Ways to Make Money Online

Filed in Making Money by on April 22, 2015 4 Comments


Today I would like to share my experience and give some info on proven ways to make money online.

Right from the start I’m going to tell you that I will be VERY honest with you and I’m sure you will not like many things that I’m going to reveal in this article.

But whether you like it or not, I will be extremely realistic because my goal is to provide you with truthful information so you can know all the truth about making money online.

What you can expect from your online efforts and what requires from you to learn and do to be successful online.

I will be talking about proven ways to make money online and though they are proven, it doesn’t mean or proves that you will start making money in x amount of days because whether you will make money or not depends on many factors, such as your willingness to learn and work, staying self-motivated and patient in the first year or so until you see real results, not expecting any profit probably in the first few months.

If you are ready for that, then you can achieve success someday, and if not then I’m very sorry, but internet marketing is not for you. Ok, keep reading because I’m going to go into more details to help you understand the whole matter.



One of the proven and well known ways of making money online is the blogging based on helping people through writing helpful content. Anyone can start blogging if they have a passion about particular field. The biggest fear most people have is writing content though it’s not as complicated as you might be thinking.

I’m not a professional writer and English is my second language, but still I can write almost on any topic and never outsource my job to anyone. Creating content is only the first step because once you’ve created it, you need to get people read your material and the best way to do that is through learning and applying SEO techniques.

There are some other methods to drive traffic to a website, such as PPC (paid traffic), social media, YouTube, email marketing etc. But search engine free traffic is the best source of traffic and all internet marketers know of this fact. If you can create quality content you can drive a massive traffic from search engines and build a full time online business.

But getting your content ranked on search engines requires time and patience because when you start your blog, Google doesn’t know you, your site or type of content you are going to create. It may be that you start your blog today and forget about it two weeks later and Google is not going to rank every site that has 2,3 pages of content.

Google is looking for sites that produce quality content continuously. With 2,3 or even 10 pages of content you won’t get to the top of Google’s rankings. So, the main problem here is that before you gain authoity on Google, it will most probably take 6 months.

I know from my own experience that it’s really so annoying, painful and frustrating to write fresh content 3,4 times a week and see how your site grows in traffic so painfully slow. But this is how it works for the majority of sites and if you are willing to start making money on the internet you must be ready to play by Google’s rules.

But even if you start getting traffic to your site, it doesn’t mean that you will start making tones of money because finally it boils down to how you write your content, i.e. your writing skills. I don’t know how good you are at writing or it might be that you have tons of grammar errors and most of your visitors will leave your site without reading your content, not to mention taking action.

That’s why, no one can guarantee that you will start making money in x amount of days. If someone guarantees you, they are most likely lying to you.


Affiliate and email marketing

Affiliate marketing is another proven way to make money online. You can do affiliate marketing through blogging or have a squeeze page, drive people to that page using multiple traffic methods to get their email addresses and then build relationships with your audience through email marketing.

You can use this method to promote your affiliate offers. The bottom line is that whether you use a squeeze page or a sales page you need to build relationships with your audience and gain their trust which takes time and efforts. It’s not about clicking on a button and making money on autopilot.

This is one of the biggest misconceptions and lies existing on the web. To build relationships, i.e. list of subscribers takes months for decent profits and years for big profits. And there is no guarantee that you can be successful with this method. If you follow a good training course you will most likely achieve success, but there is no guarantee that you will. If someone guarantees you this, they are lying to you.



You can even make money using only one proven method, such as PPC (paid advertising) i.e. instead of waiting for traffic through ranking on search engines which might take months, you can get your blog or a page listed in search results on Google and Yahoo and start getting real traffic immediately.

But it takes time before you go through a good training course and then start putting that knowledge in practice. I have experience in PPC and buy traffic from Yahoo (Bing ads) on a regular basis, and always have high CTR and low CPC, which means that my PPC campaign are profitable.

But it’s almost impossible to have all PPC campaigns equally profitable. This method requires deep knowledge and tons of experience before you can achieve success and make most of your PPC campaigns equally profitable.

One thing you should keep in mind that it’s very easy to waste money with PPC if you don’t have knowledge and experience. There are many training courses on PPC and most of them guarantee that once you go through their training you will be making tons of money.

This is not true! Trust me, I know what I’m talking about. It’s not easy to achieve success with PPC even if you go through the best training. If someone guarantees you success with PPC, they are lying to you.


A program that can show you proven ways to make money online

There are some other proven ways to make money online, but the bottom line is that there is no guarantee that you will make any money at all. Most legit make money trainings that I know on the web have one thing in common: they make bold claims and promise you success if you follow their training.

The only program that I know that never makes any false promises to anyone is Wealthy Affiliate – # 1 online business community. They have all things in place: training, tools, 2 free websites, hosting, keyword research tool, live chat, 24/7 support, weekly live webinars, support from the founders of the program, Kyle and Carson. They have all you might need to achieve success online.

I have been a premium member of this community since 2013 and know many members that are making a few thousands of $ per month and all this thanks to Wealthy Affiliate training program.

I have my business up and running too and I’m already making money. Not tons of money yet, but I believe I will be able to quit my job by the end of 2014 or in the first mid of 2015.

I’m on the right track. I’m sharing my experience to provide you with the most truthful and reliable info so you can realize what internet marketing is all about. Wealthy Affiliate is a real deal, it’s not a scam. It shows you proven ways to make money online and helps you on every step until you finally achieve success. But it doesn’t guarantee you anything because if it did it would be just another scam.

If you are looking for a legit program, I recommend you to try it. They allow to try their program within the first 7 days so you can make an informed decision before you pay them. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I will be happy to help you out.

    Hi Rufat
    What a great site you run here, I am absolutely amazed at the sheer amount of information and advice that you have on this site: it’s very well laid out and really easy to navigate around. There are so many scammy attempts at relieving us of our hard earned cash on the internet, and you have done everyone a big favour in exposing some of them. So many of us have, at some time or other, lost money to these scammers.

    However, not only have you highlighted some of these fake, scammy, so-called, business opportunities, but you also give really valuable advice to ordinary people, like me, who are looking to earn an honest income from an online business. I particularly liked the information you give about the fact that Amazon do actually run an associate / affiliate scheme; which, allows anyone wanting to earn money online, to use the absolutely huge amount of traffic that the Amazon sites attract: they are, by far, the biggest retailer on this planet.

    There are quite a few genuine web sites that relly do offer you a ‘way out’ of the 9 to 5 rat race, and you point out quite a number of them. People can put trust in your honesty Rufat, as the advice you offer is open minded and, in my opinion, a fair reflection of the pros and cons of internet marketing. More power to your ebow: keep up the good work.

      Thank you Ian for stopping by and leaving a comment on my post. I really appreciate it. I agree that there are tons of scam products/programs out there trying to scam people out of their money and it’s really hard to find something genuine on the web. Only one in ten you come across you can really trust. That’s why I’m doing my best to expose poor programs and help folks make the right decision. I show them some real opportunities that have been proven over years. I agree that anyone can build a site around Amazon products and make real money. I know many people who are making money on Amazon, so, it’s real. And I agree that only few sites are really genuine and you can trust the info you get from them. I always try to be open minded and show all pros and cons of the product so folks can make an informed decision. Thank you Ian again for stopping by.

    Hi Rufat,

    I agree that these are proven ways to make money online. Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular business opportunities and if fully understood and done the right way it’s a lucrative online business which is generating a full time residual income.

    Same goes to blogging. If you have a passion/interest/hobby, then it’s the best thing to create a website and start blogging about it. Blogging and affiliate marketing go well together if combined and why not making money with something you really love?

    PPC is a great way to get some quick traffic to a website but it’s quite risky, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. I used to do this in a very early stage of my online business and I underestimated my knowledge and lost more money that the traffic was worth. While it’s a proven way to get targeted traffic fast, it can easily go over the budget.

    The safest way, especially for beginners is to focus on writing content and publish it on a regular basis. Two to three times a week is a good start. I struggled in the beginning and had issues to keep the writing flow as I ran out of ideas. The good news is that the more you write, the better you get at it and it gets to a point where writing articles is a no-brainer.

    But yeah, getting traffic doesn’t mean money in the end. Many people forget why they should blog and that is to help people with a problem. Simply said building relationships and engage with your audience. Thinking like the audience won’t hurt either. :)

    I’ve been doing nothing but creating and publishing content on a regular basis in terms of traffic generation. Yes, the traffic comes slow, but it’s consistently increasing and that is long term.

    Thanks for this great post and I’m looking forward to reading more.

      Thank you Nicole. I really appreciate your thoughts here. As for blogging and affiliate marketings, those are proven ways to make money online. As for strategies to apply such as for example PPC, it’s a bit risky and I mentioned it in my article. Anyway, my goal was to show people that regardless of what you choose, whether it’s affiliate marketing or blogging, there are no guarantees that you make x amount of money in x amount of time. Different sites convert differently and finally it boils down to your ability to write an engaging and helpful content. If someone promises you a success, they are lying to you because life is unpredictable and the same easily applies to internet marketing. If you get trained in the right program and take the required steps you will most likely make money, but there are no guarantees.
