How To Make Money From Home | Ways To Make Money



Are you tired of buying worthless ebooks that promise to show you how to make easy money online? Have you signed up for money making systems that turned out to be scams? Are you sick and tired of all the BS sales pages you read that are designed just to convince you to part with your money?

The Keyword Academy Is None Of That

If you are honestly trying to learn how to make money from home, The Keyword Academy is your best choice. This is for people who want to learn how money is being made on the Internet and how, with work, it can be turned into a full time job. This is NOT an easy money making system but something that can be turned into a real, full time, job from home. I know because I am living it.

The best part about The Keyword Academy (TKA) is that the first month is 100% FREE. You sign up Via PayPal (you can use a credit card there) and you will not be charged until the first month has passed. After the first month you will be charged one of the two membership charges of either $29 or $33 (whichever you signed up for). Again though, YOU CAN CANCEL AT ANY TIME DURING THE FIRST MONTH AND YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED AT ALL. It is truly free for the first month.

What Is The Keyword Academy?

Mark Butler and Court Tuttle designed this training site to teach people how to make money online the right way. There are no hyped up claims here and no promises of what you will make. If you don’t do the work, you won’t make a dime. But if you do learn the concepts and do work hard at it, it is possible to make quite a lot (results will vary). As of this writing there are more than 1400 paying members to this site which should alone tell you it is legitimate.

Please watch this video I made showing some of the insides of The Keyword Academy:

9/27/2011 Update: I just put up this new video which shows all the changes that have been made in moving from TKA 1.0 to 2.0. You may hear a lot about this change once you sign up but it mostly means that more emphasis being placed on teaching you how to put up websites that Google will trust and that will stand the test of time. There are over 15 new lessons in the sidebar and a handful of new Webinars to listen to that will explain the changes. Additionally two new people have been hired to help out with the lessons and the forum so there will always be someone available to answer questions. These are exciting changes that are all designed to give you a better learning product that can help you become and STAY successful at making money online!

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Making money online for most of us means making money through affiliate marketing. It involves building websites (or blogs) around specific subjects (niches) or products and getting paid when people go through the links on our sites to buy something. You are effectively putting your website in the middle between the buyer and seller and as you might know, all middlemen take a cut.

The idea is to have websites that pop up on Google’s front page when people search for what your websites are about. For instance, if you have a website about “Japanese Rice Cookers”, you want that site to pop up first in Google (or at least on the first page of the Google results) when someone searches for that term.

You make money when they click through a link and buy a rice cooker on Amazon or where ever else you direct them. The Keyword Academy systematically shows you how to do all this and it is also big on showing you how to make money through Google’s Adsense program which is another form of affiliate marketing.

What You Get At TKA

Your first month is free and during that month you will have access to everything. Thats EVERYTHING! First off you should start with all the material that is on the right sidebar which lists all the lessons. The introduction will give you some contact information and then you should read “What it Takes To Succeed With Our Method”.  Under that is each chapter of the eBook and within those chapters are often videos and audio files. Many of them are over 30 minutes in length and they are the backbone of what you are being taught. They explain in detail all the concepts of how to make money on the Internet and what will be required of you to get started. If you have never tried to make money before, you will have a lot to learn and may need to watch these videos and read the chapters twice.

The Keyword Academy will teach you how to pick niches that you are interested in around which to build websites. Picking topics and keywords is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT because you want to pick ones that will be profitable AND keep your interest for the long term. The Google Adwords tool (which is free) is now what you will learn to use to pick those keywords and there are webinars that go over this in detail.

At least once a month there is a new webinar about different subjects and you will have access to all old webinars. You will want to listen to these as well as it will further your learning. Take advantage of the free 30 day period and learn as much as you can!

Other things that are available in The Keyword Academy are the guest post system (PostRunner) and the forum. PostRunner is a wonderful way to get links back to your blogs which help in the search rankings. I know people who pay the $33 per month just to use this wonderful tool. The forums are always active and helpful but limited time should be spent there because any and all forums are a time sink (my opinion).

Why You Should Join

The obvious reason you should join The Keyword Academy is that it is free for the first month. You have one month to learn all you can with no risk to you. If you have always wondered how other people are making money online, then this is the place to learn how.

With the help of TKA, you will learn how to build a sustainable second income that is real from the Internet. The more work you put in the more you can potentially make. You will be building a business and once you start making money something will click inside your head as all the pieces come together.

Whether you choose to continue on after the first month is totally up to you. (I misspoke at the very end of the video as you will NOT be charged for the first month so it is impossible to get a refund). Many people choose to stay on and pay the monthly fee because they see that the site is professional and they see a community of people who are all serious about making money.

Do you have to live in the USA to join? No, anyone from anywhere in the world can join TKA because the principles taught are for the Internet and of course the Internet is everywhere. There are tons of members from the UK and all over Europe as well as Canada and other countries.

If you have any questions about the The Keyword Academy, please leave a comment. If you join and hate it or love it please leave a comment as well. I will approve all comments as long as they are not spam.

    If this is such a good program, why is it free the first month? I mean, other things like Site Build It and Wealthy Affiliate charge you right away and have no trial period.

    Lauri on September 9th, 2010

    I think the rational is that in that first month you will have access to everything and see first hand what a value it is. Mark and Court are confident enough in the Keyword Academy that they are willing to let you try before you buy, so to speak.

    DayJobNuker on September 9th, 2010

    I take issue with Lauri’s comment. Offering one free month doesn’t diminish the value of the information The Keyword Academy shares. All it does is entice some people who are sitting on the fence to take the plunge and get involved. Personally I think it’s a great idea and one that has prompted me in the past to get involved with programs which I would not have done otherwise – and I turned out to be very pleased with the results.
    Keep up the great work.

    I agree. Having that first month free service may leave different impression. Nonetheless, it’s still a good way fro people to gauge whether the system will work for them or not.

    Rod Stinson on September 24th, 2010

    Actually,I have done too many surveys on how to make money online. There are too many advertises about it. But none of them made me satisfied except TKA, because of its free trial period for one month. I think it’s worth to try.
    Thank you guys…

    i am not real good at understanding computer lingo, does this matter. Is there possibility to achieve a good second income and how much time is required, daily, weeekly etc.

    ken menzel on October 6th, 2010

    In order to make money online in any serious amount Ken, you are just going to have to learn things that are computer and Internet related. If you are not willing to learn or put in any time, you will never succeed. Would you try to get a truck driver job without learning how to drive a truck? Would you try to be an accountant without learning accounting? Understand what I mean?

    The amount of income you make online will ultimately be tied to how hard you are willing to work. But you don’t have to do it all at once or all in one day. If you put in an hour a day that is fine and if you can put in only a half hour a day that will eventually add up. When building niche blogs you don’t ever lose the work you have already put in. So, in other words you can take a month off and start right back where you left off.

    How much you will end up making depends on how good you are at picking and targeting keywords and writing content for your sites. There is no magic system here or anywhere else. But you or anyone else can give The Keyword Academy a test drive for free to see what is involved. Just remember to cancel before your 30 days is up and you will never be charged.

    I joined a couple months ago. I love the community at Keyword Academy as everyone is so helpful. The videos show you what you need to do and I am starting out slowly. There is lot to learn but I am finally figuring out how it is possible for me to make money online.

    Kenny S. on October 17th, 2010

    I think most people stumble on just trying to pick a niche.

    Getting the right keywords is critical, for sure, but if you never pick a niche with potential you will never get anywhere.

    I am not familiar with TKA, do they help much in the area of picking niches?


    Roger - Learn To Make Money on October 18th, 2010

    They have a proprietary tool called the Niche Refinery which allows you to put in thousands of keywords and the tool will analyze them to give you all the “green” keywords along with an approximation of what each keyword is worth if you reach the #1 spot in Google search. Green Keywords are ones that can be beaten reasonably easily.

    You have to pick your own niches but that tool is a great help with the keywords for each niche and much better than any tool that is available for free.

    For six years I’ve been trying to make money online and haven’t made a dime. Is it truly possible to make money for the first time with TKA within the trial period if the methods are applied? There must be some truth to all the claims being made of earning a living on the internet. Can this program help someone as frustrated as me? Thanks for listening, it’s been a long journey for which I still believe there’s light at the end of the tunnel!!:)

    It is VERY hard to make money your first month with anything other than surveys so to be honest, it is unlikely you will make money in your first month. But what business in the real world can you start from a standstill and make money right away? None that I know of because it takes time to set things up.

    Starting a business (websites that make money) online is the cheapest way to make money I know. I actually started for nothing with free Blogger blogs. Can you start a brick and mortar business for nothing? Nope.

    I actually didn’t make any money for 6 months either until I learned the principles of what they are teaching. I wish TKA was around when I started.

    If you really want to learn what you need to know to make money for the long term, The Keyword Academy is the place.

    Think about all the websites that go up every day. Yes, there is a lot of money being made online otherwise what would be the point? TKA shows you how to get your websites up to the first page of Google for the search terms you are targeting. That’s how you make money and that is what they teach along with giving you the tools to succeed.

    Sign up and go to the forum. You will see all the badges by people’s names and that is what they are earning per month. They can’t fake those badges because the income has to be verified by TKA before they are eligible to get a badge.

    But don’t spend too long in the forum as you should be watching the videos (or reading the transcripts) and then watching all the old webinars. There is even an ebook that is very long that walks you through everything step by step. You will learn more real info in one month for free than you learned in 6 years.

    This Keyword Academy is the real thing for anyone serious about learning how money is made online as a long term sustainable endeavor. I guarantee it. Really I do.

    there’s actually a lot of scams on internet, I almost trust someone to build a website/blog for me. does TKA help to build a website/blog.

    James on November 30th, 2010

    TKA does not build any websites for you. That is up to you and if you want to really make money online, it is as skill you need to learn. But the days of having to use Dreamweaver or some other program to actually “build” a website are long gone. Everything is now done on simple to set up blogs like this one and almost anyone can learn how to do it. You can also learn how to make money on free platforms such as Blogger blogs, Squidoo lenses, and HubPages. The principles are all the same and TKA teaches you the priciples.

    Is there any OTHER jobs to do at home without having to pay anything at all? I mean, why should we have to pay to be paid? That doesn’t make any sense!

    Jessie on January 3rd, 2011

    Do you want a job or to learn how to make money online? The two are very different things.

    If you want a job, what are you qualified to do? Who would hire you? How would you make them money? Would you want your healthcare paid too? You see, there aren’t very many “jobs” online where you earn a paycheck and act like an employee.

    Most people set out to make money online. If they are successful, it can turn into a full time income but they would be their own boss and be starting their own business via Internet marketing. The Keyword Academy teaches how to do that and yes, it is fair to have to pay to learn that information. You have to pay to go to any sort of a college to learn a skill don’t you? Likewise, you have to pay to learn (in most cases) how to set up your own Internet marketing business.

    The Keyword Academy is awesome. The keyword tool and postrunner system are easily worth three times the price alone. I was already making several thousand dollars per month when I joined, so TKA isn’t just for beginners.

    Kyle on January 14th, 2011

    By tweaking some of the concepts in TKA I made $250 last month with a brand new web page. And that isn’t going to be a one time payment. Its on track to make that much this month… and I bet it will make that much or more next month and so on. It is possible to make decent money online in one month but you have to focus and you have to work hard and smart. If thats not for you, don’t bother.

    Mason on January 14th, 2011

    Actually, James, TKA just started a pilot program where they will buy a domain and pay for webhosting for you as long as you remain a member (you can take over if you decide to leave).

    Not only that, but they will set it up for you. All you have to do is write your targeted articles and set up your advertising and you’re good to go.

    I recommend for anyone and everyone to check out The Keyword Academy. They are the real deal.

    Talmadge Tiffany on January 14th, 2011

    Fabulous presentation for TKA. I have read 30 Blogs / Websites this past week. I have been looking for an authentic REAL INTERNET work at home opportunity for months.
    I have learned to get ahead of my teenagers learning curve with Social networking / media and get on board with Internet technology. The Keyword Academy sounds terrific. I am concerned that there are so many things to learn and PROCESS in terms of a WORKABLE Income Stream that I will not know how to get started, keep it running, update my Blogs/Websites, DOT my “I”s CROSS my “T”s….. I think you know what I mean. I am not afraid of hard work. That is my middle name. Bottom line, can TKA keep me on track and be creative?

    Robert Mattner on January 16th, 2011

    If you want to make real money online that could translate into a side income or even full time income, there are a lot of things to learn. Just like any new “job” you would start, there is a lot to learn right?

    The Keyword Academy will help you step by step and the ebook you will have access to starts at the very beginning and lays everything out for you very methodically. The core videos will help anyone who needs to hear and see the instruction.

    Again though, it is no risk to try for the first 30 days and if it is not right for you, all you have to do is cancel your Paypal subscription and you will never be charged

    DayJobNuker on January 16th, 2011

    OK! I’m ready to sign up. So where did that green button go? I have read the material, listened to the video, read the comments from top to bottom, and I don’t see the green button to click on.

    Mark on February 9th, 2011

    The green button on the Keyword Academy site? It’s there now.

    DayJobNuker on February 9th, 2011
  • 24

    so..after I sign up, I have 30 days. during the 30 days do I need to spend more money in anyway, to make myself money? if I put the time and knowledge you teach me, what you are saying is that I could make money within the first 30 days, without spending my money? please make you answer clear and concise.

    thank you,

    Hi Alan,
    TKA teaches you how to make money online by owning your own websites. Unfortunately, owning your own websites DOES cost money: about $10 per domain and then somewhere between $4 and $10 per month in hosting. Now you can choose to only start free blogs at places like but then you don’t own them and they can be deleted or closed down at their whim. Owning your own website(s) is ALWAYS the best option (in my opinion) because they are yours and can’t be shut down by someone else.

    The Keyword Academy shows you how to make money with a website or blog by getting it to the top of Google’s search. Think about how you found this post of mine and my blog. Did you find it through doing some sort of a search on how to make money? If you did then you may understand that I have worked hard to get my blog visible and showing up in a lot of Google’s searches so people like you can find it. THAT is what TKA shows you how to do.

    So in summary, TKA will show you how to go about making money with your own websites and you can read through everything and watch everything during that first 30 days for free. What you do or don’t do with the knowledge is up to you.

    DayJobNuker on October 18th, 2011

    How do I know that TKA is legit? You sound like the other scams giving training information about your own business. I don’t see the difference when you and the scanners both operate through PayPal, eBay, and other Internet tools. You and the scanners want money. The scammers wants theirs from the start, TKA wants theirs during the training process. What’s the difference? These emails represents TKA with good reviews, so does scanners.

    Jean on October 31st, 2011
  • 27

    “You and the scanners want money. The scammers wants theirs from the start, TKA wants theirs during the training process. What’s the difference?”

    THAT is the difference Jean. The others want the money upfront and TKA does not. They give you 30 days free first. If you don’t like it or don’t want to continue, you just end your PayPal subscription and you will never be charged.

    I think I have also made it clear that this is not for everyone. If you aren’t willing to work and aren’t willing to put in the time then you will have a lot of trouble making money online. There are no shortcuts and you have to be willing to work to be successful with TKA.

    DayJobNuker on November 1st, 2011

    I’ve read all the comments, but as a very skeptical internet income seeker, I’ve been burned more than once and lost a good deal of money. So, I realize it may take some time to start making money with the TKA program, what I need to know is how much money do I need to sustain myself (with fees, website hosting, etc.)until I actually begin to produce a supportable and sustainable income?

    Stan J. on November 16th, 2011
  • 29

    Web hosting is cheap now days and you can get that for between $6 and $10 per month (actually you can find it for cheaper if you look but I use Hostgator which is one of the biggest and most reliable hosting companies out there). After that, your costs will be about $10 for every domain you buy PER YEAR so that is real cheap.

    I started out with 5 free Blogger blogs all about different things. Four of them got no traffic but the fifth one started making me money within a couple of months. After that, I bought a real domain and started building up a site around that niche and it is still making me money 4 years later. After finding that one successful niche, I started looking for more in order to increase my income.

    The Keyword Academy will teach you all the principles needed to start making money online but obviously your success will depend on a lot of things, most importantly whether you can pick good niches (topics) and get traffic to your website(s). I think I have said most all of this before in the post and the comments but making money online is a long term endeavor that you can continue to work on and build up for years. All the push button, hands off, money making systems you see advertised are not real as I guess you have already found out by what you say.

    Who is better TKA or wealthly affiliate?

    Tess on January 18th, 2012
  • 31

    It is hard to answer that question as they both have a lot of positives. However, since the first month of TKA is free, I would start there and I have pointed friends in that direction. You can try before you buy with zero risk for a month and that is hard to beat!

    DayJobNuker on January 19th, 2012

    I have been thinking about joining The Keyword Academy and came across this site. One thing you write jumped out as a red flag to me right away. If the 1 free month is the best thing about The Keyword Academy I don’t think I want to waste my time. Id rather be charged the small fee of $33 they charge and have something really good. If you think the free month is the best thing about it, then it must not really be all that great.

    I am still on the fence, but after reading this I am going to do some more research on the subject. I know you are trying to explain how great it is of them to let you inside to take a peak, but to say it is the best thing about the program really had a negative effect on my outlook. You might want to change that up.

    Josh P. on February 2nd, 2012
  • 33

    I think you are being ultra picky. I don’t even have time to go back to see where/if I said it is the best part about TKA.
    It is free to join for the first month and if you feel better about paying for something that charges you right from the beginning with no refund policy then that is your choice.

    DayJobNuker on February 3rd, 2012

    I’m still confused about this. Are we going to be selling their stuff? So they teach us to make a website and use certain keywords…that doesn’t sound to complicated. Its just the part of selling the stuff. What will we be selling? I dont want to sign up for something thats just going to explain how to create and maintain a website, I’ve seen other scams like that before. Even if the first month is free. Its like nobody can give us a straight answer unless we sign up first.

    Sammy on March 7th, 2012
  • 35

    No Sammy, you are not going to be selling their stuff. There is no “their stuff” to sell as TKA does not have anything to sell.

    If you want to make money online, obviously you have to sell something: a service, your product, someone else’s product, leads, or information. You will most likely end up making money selling other people’s products (affiliate marketing) or making money via Adsense.

    The Keyword Academy gives you all the information and tools you need to get started making money online. They explain how to do it and the theory behind setting everything up. Learning how to make money online is complicated and there is no “straight answer” that you seem to want. You can’t learn everything in 5 minutes. I have been online for over 5 years and I am still learning new things.

    It sounds like you have been scammed before or at least think you have. I promise you that TKA is not a scam and I have NEVER heard anyone call it that. But you do have to be willing to learn and work so if you are not willing to do that, then signing up will be a waste of time for you.
