How To Make Money From Home | Ways To Make Money



**How To Start Making Money For Free

You might have reached this post because you are fed up with all the lies and money making scams online. You have been looking for job ideas and you want to learn no charge ways to make money but every where you turn there is a “system” that requires you to pay money upfront. When you do pay the fee, you find out it is just like the last make easy money scam you purchased. For instance, stuffing envelopes from home would fall into this scam category. Maybe you have avoided paying anything so far and if so, good for you. You are ahead of the game because most other people start out by being scammed a couple of times.

Many of these scams involve selling you “turnkey websites”. The word “turnkey” is one of the best advertising gimicky words ever created for scamers to take your money. Who wouldn’t like a website where all you have to do is turn a key and have money flow out of it? It sounds like one of the best all time ways to make money, doesn’t it? The problem is that there is no such thing no matter what anyone tells you. A turnkey website is just a website that has been put together for you. It is not magical and not special in any way and it won’t make you a dime unless you know how to drive traffic to it. Many of these guru’s “programs” and “systems” invlove giving you one of these turnkey websites and then hoping you will believe you are going to make easy money.

So, lets assume you paid $97.99 or some other high price and you now have yourself a turnkey website. So what? There are hundreds of millions of websites out there on the Internet.  Is your new website any different or better than all the others? No! Your website that you got from the “guru” with the fantastic claims of fast money will be getting zero visitors and making zero dollars. Do you know how to get targeted traffic to that site so that it will make sales? Will the guru who you just paid that $97.99 to for this next to worthless site tell you? The only thing he might tell you is to go spend more money on Pay Per Click to get traffic. That is a mistake you don’t want to make and you may lose your shirt trying that.

The end result is that you are left with your website that no one knows about and makes you nothing and you still have to pay $4.95 or $9.95 per month to keep it up with hosting. You have no clue how to get visitors to your site who will buy, the guru has gone on to scam others and won’t help you, and eventually you just give up. You are still no closer to finding any good ways to make money online. Sound familiar?

**Make Money Risk Free Can It be done?

Now, you were probably searching for something like “how to make money without money” or “how to make money with no risk” or “ways to make easy money” online jobs with no fees” or even “free ways to make money online”. The result is that you found this post. You probably have been trying to figure out if there are any totally risk free ways to make money where you don’t have to pay anything up front. No investment, no charge, no credit card payment, totally free, with no possibility of being scammed. Even if you fail, you won’t be out a dime because they are free ways to make money. Sound about right?

Actually there are some free methods to make money on the Internet and they are how I got started. Now, none of these methods are going to make you rich or provide you even a part time job. They are just going to be stepping stones to getting you started making some free money online. Right now you might not think that is even possible depending on whether you have been scammed before and/or how much you have lost. I think the best course of action is to get that first payment, no matter how small, and then try to figure out how to make it bigger the next time. Remember, these are just the first steps to making money online.

Hopefully once you start making a little moeny then you can afford to reinvest that money and pay for a website or blog like this one and learn other ways to make more money on the Internet. I do want you to know, however, that if you ever want to make any decent money online (say maybe $200 a month and up), you are eventually going to have to spend some money. But that is OK if you have already made that money and are willing to reinvest it.

**The First Steps To Making Free Money Online

Your first step is to sign up to places that will never ask you for any payment or credit card. CashCrate is one of the first places I ever made money at and now I make $500 to $1000 per month and I have never paid them a cent to join or participate. They pay me every month and it is money I can rely on. Please read my Cash Crate Review and see the quick video of one of my checks as proof. You won’t be making $200 at first but this is a good place to start for anyone over 13 years old. This is one of the great ways for teens to make money and start learning.

You never want to do just one thing to make money on the Internet because you don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket. CahsCrate is only one of many ways I make money and there are other similar sites like it. You might also sign up for Send Earnings and when you do they will start you out with $5.00 already in your account. They are a little different than CashCrate but you can make some free money there as well. Again, you want to spread yourself out and make as much as you can at each site. You might also like one or the other better or have more luck with one.

1) CashCrate
2) Send Earnings

**Your Next Steps To Making More Money Online

I will assume that you can make at least $40.00 from the two sites mentioned above and that will of course depend on how much time you spend. The next site is called Project Payday and it is different from the ones above. Project Payday is more like a work at home job than the other ones but you won’t need a blog or website to participate. It involves incentivized freebie websites and getting paid to try out trial offers from online advertisers. You will need to use a little of the $40.00 you made above but you will get most of it back and eventually more if you learn how to do it.

Project Payday will not be for everyone and you may either love it or hate it. There is work to this but you can realistically earn a couple of hundred dollars a day if you want to put in the effort. I have done a three part Project Payday review which you should read to understand more about the concept behind incentivized freebie websites and how you can make money with them. There are people that love this concept and do very well with it, but they do have to work at it.

**A Legitimate  Make Money Program

If you have read this far, I should tell you about one of the most legitimate tutorials online that will walk you through how to set up money making blogs or websites for a long term income and get traffic to them. The Keyword Academy is 100% FREE for the first and it will save you tons of time and confusion if you are just starting out. Anyone who is just beginning to try to learn how to make money online will be walked step by step through the process of researching niches and making blogs or websites around those niches to make money.

Read the sales page and notice one thing: there are no pictures of outrageous homes, boats, and cars and the crap that is plastered throught the sales page of many other make money scams. There are no claims of how much money you will make because how much you make depends on how hard you work. Please see my more in depth analysis here – The Keyword Academy review. With this turorial you will learn the basics of how to build blogs, write content, and get targeted traffic to those blogs which will translate into sales. This is no scam: this is how I and thousands of other marketers make money online.

The Keyword Academy is totally free for the first month and you will NOT be charged during that time. It is a truly no risk opportunity. If this were around when I started out 2+ years ago, it would have saved me about a year of wasted time floundering all over the place trying to sift between the scams and reality of making money online.

**In Conclusion

You really don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get started earning some extra money online. You can choose to spend money if you have it and many do. Just don’t expect any overnight miracles with heaps of cash flowing in. Some people are successful but most are not because they are impatient, have too high expectations, discover it is too hard and involved, and ultimateley give up. Despite what you might have heard, there is very little easy money online and it takes work. If you want to make money from home and turn it into a work from home job, you have a long road ahead. But it can be done with patience and steady learning and it is possible to get started without any investment. Really it is…I did it!

    Very interesting, I’ve been in the process of checking out 2 or 3 of the very sites you mentioned but wasn’t sure if they were really going to work out, or were going to end up being scams in the end, it’s a relief to know that I can put some hard work into these and actually get a return. Thank You Susan Thompson

    Making real money on the internet is real but you’ll have to do a lot of hard work. You can earn money from writing but be sure to publish articles with more meat. Write for your readers, not for the money. Thanks for the warning about online scammers.

    These are some good ideas, the project payday works but it takes a lot more work than people think.

    Yeah, that’s right. Making money online is cheaper than offline but you should have more work hard. You can get more money 10x more than offline. Good luck!

    These are some qood ways to start making money online without risk, but sometime is better to spend a little money to make money. People always go for the free stuff, people have to remember you get what you pay for. You pay nothing you get nothing, but in this case these sites are very legit and safe that are being promoted above.

    There aren’t many real “jobs” you can find online. However I did tell you about free ways to make money and CashCrate is one of them. It costs nothing to join and you never need to pay for anything.

    I think one of the main things people tend to overlook when it comes to making money online, is the fact that just like making money offline it takes work. You cant just sit around and expect to make money online.
    I have been a member of inboxdollars for years and I love the program. Although these day I dont have much time to complete offers, but I still do read and click their paid emails. Thanks.
