How To Make Money From Home | Ways To Make Money



When you think of some of the highest paying careers, you probably don’t think of stay at home jobs like Internet marketing. The first thing that will come to most people’s mind are actors and athletes that earn millions a year. For 99.9% of us though, becoming a Hollywood star or a big time athlete is just not reality.

Other high paying jobs we commonly think of are doctors, lawyers, dentists, airline pilots, and company CEO’s. These types of jobs usually pay more than $100,000 per year and in the case of lawyers and CEO’s they can pay in the millions. Again though, most of those jobs are out of reach of the common person as you have to have extensive training and sometimes God given abilities to succeed in those areas.

Most real jobs, whether they pay a lot or a little, come with some sort of a ceiling in terms of what you can make. Even a commission only job will probably have an upper dollor figure that would be hard to surpass. So, are there any potentially high paying jobs the every day guy can do?

Internet Marketing Is A Career

Believe it or not, one of the high paying careers you have never thought about might be one that anyone can learn how to do and can be done from your kitchen table. Of course not everyone will succeed and in fact in this career over 99% will probably fail. It is a field that is fraught with scams and misinformation and one where only the hardest workers can see through all the BS and come out the other end with a success story.

Internet marketing and making money online is something that makes some people hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. There are many ways to make money on the Internet and some people own very successful web sites that pull in big dollars. If you set out to learn this business and are serious, it can turn into one of the highest paying jobs there is.

Again, in order to get to that level you have to work hard and be able to cut through all the make money online scams. You have to have a plan, be able to execute the plan, and also be able to improvise and learn along the way. Believe it or not, I got my very first payment from my endeavers online from CashCrate (see my CashCrate review). It was something as simple as that first check from them that made me realize not everything is a scam and it really is possible to make money online. That is what got me started and kept me going.

There Is No Ceiling

Unlike other jobs, there is no maximum dollar amount you can earn in Internet Marketing. For instance, if you are an airline pilot, your top salary is whatever you can get one of the major airlines to pay you. That is all you can make and there is not much upside after you reach the top.

If you own websites and blogs online however, you can keep adding to your portfolio and make more and more. The only limitation you face is your time and drive. You can also fine tune things to try to make more out of what you already have. Any new ideas you have along the way may also translate into more money. The world and and the Internet are fast moving and those people who have the inspiration and ideas are the ones who can cash in.

There are many ways to make money online and the truly talented individuals are able to turn Internet marketing into one of the highest paying careers. These people are really entrepreneurs as they grow their online business and enjoy being their own boss. They are highly motivated and work hard to make money in areas where most other people fail.

The barrier to entry isn’t really money as it is cheap to get started earning money online. The real barrier is having the patience and ability to see through all the scams and really believe that it is possible to make money on the Internet. After you do that, you must then also believe that it is possible for you to make money online and become a success.

    I want to see internet marketer on one of those top 10 highest paying jobs list although I guess the average is too low, since most people don’t make much.

    I agree with Paul. I have never seen someone on the top 10 highest paid people in the world be an internet entrepreneur. I figured there would be one. With all the claims made on the internet about how much people get from affiliate marketing a like programs I figured someone would be telling the truth. Regards!

    Very inspiring post!

    We are at the beginning of a paradigm shift; I think that Internet wealth will become more and more well known and mainstream. Really if you think about it, being an Internet business owner is not much different from being any other kind of business owner… Just you don’t have to pay rent, necessarily hold inventory, etc.

    Starting an internet marketing business you will find that there are numerous options and opportunities for you to choose from. You can get into virtually any field imaginable as long as there is public appeal. But if you really want to succeed on the internet it is worth looking into niche marketing.

    I agree with you, but then when starting an internet business, you have to dedicate your time in making it as well as endless hours of sitting down in front of your computer.

    You need to bolden the part that says 99% of people won’t make anything on the internet. Because that is really the truth!

    In the past, I’ve had the opportunity to see some high wage earners, like company directors or lecturers and such….(their bank accounts I mean) and to tell you the truth, what these people earn (salary-wise) can only be equaled by only the BEST internet marketers out there. And NONE of them are “internet marketers” either!

    The “downside” to internet marketing is like you said, the low entry barrier, so it won’t just be you alone, but 999,999 other guys who are in it. One thing to bear in mind is that the ones making a lot of money have also been involved in this for the past 5 years or more….

    Hence, the 99% failure rate.

    Internet Marketing is a career, that you can grow and expand on. It certainly is becoming one of the highest paid opportunities online.

    It should go with out saying, research and educate yourself on every opportunity to see if it is legitimate or not.

    Yes, Internet Marketing is a career and is all too often seen as a quick root to riches, or a lazy mans way to fast retirement. That is the reason so many people fail and then quickly turn around and shout scam. In fact, like any business, working online requires you to build a solid foundation, and spend countless hours teaching yourself the new strategies to become successful online. There are no systems you simply plug into and switch on.

    Like any job, if you want success, you need to get an education, put in alot of work and network with others. That is just too hard for most people!I see it everyday in the stores I have managed. Just let me come in, hang out, pay me and let me go home and crash on the couch!

    Internet marketing does take time and hard work. It’s not like you get into it, and then go sit down and wait for your money to kick in. Just like everything else, there’s right ways and wrong ways in doing business.
