If you want to make money from home online, now is as great a time a ever. New research shows that more money was spent this year in online advertising (25.8 Billing dollars) than in print media for the first time ever. (read about it here) It has been evident for years now that the print media is failing as newspapers in every major city are finding it more and more difficult to turn a profit. The big reason why is that so many of us are going online to get our news and information rather than the old way of reading newspapers and magazines.
Advertisers have been steadily adding to their online budgets and this is the first year ever that they have spent more online than on offline sources. This is great news for anyone who wants to learn how to make money from their computers because if they know what they are doing, they can get a cut of all that in cash.
My last post was about how 1 billion dollars was spent on Cyber Monday this year and now there is this new research data showing more great things for people making money in the online arena. The money flowing into all areas of online business is very encouraging for anyone wanting to learn how to work from home make money online.
When you think of online advertising you immediately think of banner ads like the one near the top of this blog. You see that type of square and rectangular ad everywhere online now and that is how many websites make money. The more daily viewers your blog has, the more you can charge for those ads. This is one reason bloggers want to get as many readers as they can so that they can charge more for the ads on their sites.
Charging for ads is just one of many ways you can make money with a blog or website and it is just one of the things that advertisers pay for. They also pay for leads which is what affiliate marketing is. Lead generation is where you get viewers to go to an advertiser’s website and you get paid for the people you send. Companies recognize that there is so much potential for making money online that they will pay you to bring customers to them. This is the way many bloggers and affiliate marketers make money in addition to or rather than flat out charging for ad space.
If you want to make money at home it is NOT too late to get started. That is one of the things I hear asked that people are constantly afraid of but you have to remember that the Internet is still rather new. The potential for starting a business online is every bit as much there today as it was a couple of years ago. All you have to do is have an idea and the ability to put it into action so get started right now and stop procrastinating. (See The Keyword Academy to find out how to start for free)
