Genuine ways to earn money online ( here are some genuine ways to earn online)

Here are genuine ways to earn money online
Genuine ways to earn money online

In this post, I will be looking at genuine ways to make money online.

There are many ways to make money online, some you will be able to make only a small amount while others you will be able to make a decent income.

We will start with the small income earners first.

Surveys are usually income earners however the earnings usually range from about $10-30 dollars per month.

Most of these sites offer other options for making money other than taking surveys.

You can earn cash through a variety of other means as well. For example, referring to friends is a way to earn too. You can also compete in games in order to try to get rewarded, or shop from online retailers for rewards.

These sites are:

Swag bucks.

According to their information on the company’s website Prodege, LLC an internet and media company is comprised of three consumer engagement platforms: Swagbucks, MyPoints, and ShopAtHome, which deliver engaging content to more than 60 million members.

  1. Completing your profile

Sign up and complete your profile that is worth $10.00 there are some rules that go along with the $10.00, you have to spend at least $25 at a featured store in Swagbucks within 30 days of signing up. So you need to spend $25.00 to get 10.00

Survey Junkie:

According to their website

Survey Junkie is an online community with over 10 million members dedicated to making your voice heard. We open the window of communication between you and the brands you love.

See your opinions and suggestions reflected in the products and services of tomorrow.

Money can be made at Survey Junkie just by doing the simplest tasks of taking surveys

Of course, the money you make will not be enough to help you to retire from your regular job early, but it will help you to earn something towards expenses

Like buying some gas or buying lunch

You will earn $10 with every 1000 points, every point is worth $0.01 so you may get 50 points for a survey.

I have found most surveys are like those mentioned above, you can earn but not enough to make any significant increase in your earnings.

There are jobs you can do online   

Teaching is a good one, you can teach Asian children English this usual pays somewhere between $14 – $20 per hour you will need to have some experience in teaching children K-12

There are companies like VIP Kids and DaDadAbc  The pay may not be great but It would some extra cash for you,

Transcriptionist

A transcriptionist is a professional typist who listens to recorded or live audio files and converts into text format what they hear. They offer their services to medical, legal, and general transcription industry.

Transcribeanywhere offers courses that according to the company will make you into a professional transcriber in months you can read my review of Trancreib anywhere here

There is also Transbribeme which is similar to Transcribeanywhere you can read my review here 

Both of these companies are legitimate companies and you can earn money from either company but the work is temporary so after one assignment is completed you will have to wait for another so there will be periods when you will not be working and the pay starts at $14 per hour.

Freelancing

Freelancing is a genuine way to earn money online. If you are good at content writing, web designing or web development, SEO(Search Engine Optimization), Video making or editing, or anything to do with web development then you can earn money by using your skills and make very good genuine income from freelancing.

You will be able to earn anywhere from $200 up ant more you are known in your field the more you will be able to make.

There are companies you can register, I have listed a few of them.

  • Upwork.com
  • Fiverr.com
  • Freelancer.com

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is the promotion of a product or service of a merchant on your website and you are paid a commission for every purchase that is made through your website.

This is a very good way to make money the process is easy but your success will not happen quickly, but you can earn  from 3-7 thousand dollars and more but it takes time, patience,

Wealthy Affiliate is a company that will give you step by step instructions in building your website and all the necessary information in building an online affiliate marketing business.

With a website, you will not be limited to one way of making money online, at Wealthy Affiliate you will be shown how to make money from different streams, and you can start for free.

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is an advertising model in which a company compensates third-party publishers to generate traffic or leads to the company’s products and services.

The third-party publishers are affiliates, and the commission fee incentivizes them to find ways to promote the company.

Earning online is not difficult if you choose the method of content writing (blogging) you have to give your time.

To gain customers you need to gain their trust, and this is what takes time, building trust.

Is Affiliate Marketing a Pyramid Scheme

For whatever reason people are looking for alternative ways of earning money whether it is because they are tired of the daily commute to and from work, or they are stuck in a job that they hate but stay because the income is needed, and people, need to supplement their income. I believe this reason is the most common.

But it does not matter what the reason is,  people are turning to the internet for the answer to this problem.

start your own business
Easy sign up here start your own business

There are some excellent suggestions for ways to make money online. There are 2 ways that most people seem to gravitate towards most and one is what is called the pyramid or Multi-Level Marketing and affiliate marketing.

There seems to be a misconception that these two types of marketing are the same, so in this post, I will be taking a look at these two marketing methods, and find the differences if any.

Pyramid method/ MLM

The pyramid method is a single business transaction between two people. An offer is then made and if the offer is accepted, then the person that made the offer can make money selling this product.

For all sales made by the person who made the offer, and they will earn a commission for each sale and along with making sales, they will have to recruit others to sell the products.

For each additional person that is recruited by the person you recruited to sell the product or service, you will also get a  percentage of all the revenues they make as well.

And they will also get a commission if their recruits recruit others, and they make sales and this continues.

This creates a pyramid where there are different levels of supposed income potential.

The problem with this type of marketing.

The problem with pyramid marketing is they are generally misleading or fraudulent. You are led to believe you can make a lot of money but the truth is only the person on top of the overall pyramid, will make a substantial amount of money. You may make a little  money,

Is the time, effort, and money invested worth the money you make. With pyramid marketing, you usually have to spend some money yourself in purchasing the product or service, which is usually compulsory in being a member of the pyramid company.

Also, the commission on the products is usually small, so the bulk of your income comes from your ability to recruit others the more recruits you have to sell products and recruiting others the more money you will make.

Consider the fact that most of the time you are asked to sell an unknown product to your friends and family first. If this product was so great, why wouldn’t your marketing pitch work with the neighbors, and why don’t they already have whatever it is that is being sold if it is so great.

Affiliate Marketing

According to Wikipedia  Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts

In other words, affiliate marketing is where you agree to sell or endorse a product in exchange for a commission of any sales that you generate.

A company will typically give an individual a referral link, or some sort of unique identifier to keep track of how many sales were generated due to you referring a customer to the product. This link is placed in your blog or to any content you may be using to promote the goods

The Difference Between Affiliate Marketing and MLM.

Affiliate marketing is different because the payment model is different, you get an agreed percent on any product sold through your promotions, there is no purchase by you necessary, there are no fees to join and no recruiting.

Affiliate Marketing Is Legitimate (And is The Future Of Marketing)

There is a legitimate product that you are promoting on behalf of the company that makes the product. You are using nothing but your own experience or researching and endorsement of the product.

Think of it as promoting a product that will fill a need by those looking for something to fill a that will make their own lives easier, but you just happen to get paid as an incentive to do so more publicly.

Affiliate marketing is definitely the way of the future, as we see in society today the brick and mortar stores are closing, but most stores are keeping their online presence.

With the busy life of people, they are opting for having the convenience of shopping in the finest stores from the comfort of their homes.

And more stores are making it easier for shoppers, by offering early delivery in some cases the next day delivery, easy returns, in some cases tax-exempt and free shipping.

So with all the explosion on online stores, there is a need for online marketers.  There are now over 4 BILLION people online as of 2019  and these people are going to search engines, social media, or visiting websites for help all the time.

Online marketing is one of the better ways of making money online, and while your success will happen overnight none the less it will happen, with work determination, consistency, and above all patience.

If you are looking for a change in career or a way of making some extra money to supplement your income I would recommend online marketing

Have You Ever BeenScamed? (Do this)

I

Have You Been Scammed (Take these steps)
Have You Ever Been Scammed (Do This)

Have You Ever Been Scammed? (Do this)

Being Scammed has been on the rise with the ongoing popularity of making money online.

Nobody wants to go through this, but unfortunately, from time to time this does happen.

If you believe you’ve been a victim of a work-at-home scam, then you’ll want to take some steps right away to report it, try to get your money back, and learn what to do to protect yourself in the future.

I would like to suggest not to invest in any online venture unless there is a free membership or there is an option in getting a refund of any cash that is invested.

Before you accuse a company or person of scamming you, you should make every effort in speaking to the company respective to make sure you really were scammed, and not just the victim of bad service or a misunderstanding.

Having satisfied that you really have been scammed, and there was no misunderstanding on either side you are now ready to take some action in being reimbursed for any money spent.

Report the issue to your bank or credit card company.

If you used a credit or debit card to make payment to the company in question then you can always dispute the charges.

Many financial institutions have a policy that will refund your money if they determine you were the victim of fraud.

But keep in mind each institution has its own rules about what it considers fraud, so be sure to check with yours to find out.

You can also Lock Down Your Bank Accounts and Credit Cards If you’re concerned you’ll continue to get billed on a recurring basis by the scammer company,

It is best not to delay in taking action, the sooner you make the calls, the sooner your money and credit will be protected.

And in case you are been charged with extra charges on your account later, it will be easier to get the issue resolved because you would have already alerted the company you’re the victim of a scam and there would be proof of the matter recorded.

Credit Bureau

Then it’s time to get in touch with the three major credit bureaus,

  • TransUnion1-800-680-7289
  • Experian      1-888-397-3742
  • Equifax          1-888-766-0008

 Change Your Passwords

IT is very important If you were scammed online, be sure to change your passwords right away. Some times in the stress of the moment we overlook this obvious step,

Be sure to make your new passwords strong and is very different from the previous ones.

Report the Scam

Report the scam, whether you get your money back or not, by you reporting the scam you may be able to take action against the scammer, and this action may put them out of business, saving someone else from being scammed

There are several places you can make a report of being scammed.

The State Attorney General’s Office or the Secretary of State

Contact the State Attorney General’s Office or the Secretary of State in the state the company is located in to report the fraud.

This can be done even if you live in a different state, contact the state that the company is doing business in.

This information can be ascertained just by doing a Google search with the state’s name and “Attorney General’s Office.

Federal Bureau of investigations

The FBI IC3 investigates complaints of internet crimes and requires accurate and complete details to do so.

They then analyze the complaint and will work with federal, state, local or international law enforcement or regulatory agencies with jurisdiction to take action

The FTC Federal Trade Commission

The FTC will not be able to resolve your specific dispute, but if there are others who have had the same experience and are filing a complaint, it can investigate and prosecute the scammers.

Fraud.org

This site is a nonprofit advocacy organization and is a project of the National Consumers League (NCL), its aims are to protect consumers. It can’t get your money back on your behalf, but it will forward the complaint to the proper authorities, including the FTC

Better Business Bureau (BBB)

A company does not have to be listed at the BBB for a complaint to be made.

It can be made by just lodging a complaint to the BBB where the company does business.

The BBB usually contact the company on your behalf and attempt to solve your complaint.

People who search the BBB for information can see the complaint, so it may help protect other consumers

The best way to deal with scams is to avoid them, and to avoid them is to do business with reputable companies.

If you are doing business with a company especially if it is one that is new to you, it is best to check out this company thoroughly.

Go online and read reviews, go to the BBB and check their ratings or if any complaint has been lodged against them, and I would also suggest that you do not turn over any large sums of money or financial information.

You can also get a credit card with just the money you need for that particular transaction this is a way of shielding your financial information.

And another tip if you are looking to find employment online, you should never pay to get employed, than is one of the most common scams there is.

In this post, I will be looking at Powerhouse Affiliate, it is a known fact that affiliate marketing is one of the better ways to make money online, and because of this, there are a lot of “companies” that are advertizing ways to make money online that are total scams.

Is There A Difference Between Affiliate and MLM marketing? Yes A big Difference

.

Difference between Affiliate and MLM Marketing
Is There a Difference Between Affiliate and MLM Marketing?

Difference Between Affiliate and MLM Marketing

There is a very big difference between Affiliate Marketing, and we will be looking at both these marketing methods in this post.

First, we will be looking at the multi-level marketing or MLM, according to Investopedia Multilevel marketing (MLM) is a strategy some direct sales companies used to encourage existing distributors to recruit new distributors who are paid a percentage of their recruits’ sales.

The recruits are the distributor’s “down line.” Distributors also make money through direct sales of products to customers. Amway, which sells health, beauty, and home care products, is an example of a well-known direct sales company that uses multilevel marketing.

With MLM you have to know the product you are selling so in order for you to know the product means you will have to purchase the product.you have to become a “product of the product”.

With most MLM company’s you will have to spend a certain amount each month to remain a sales rep for the company.

And you will have to recruit members because that is the only way you will be able to make money as you will get a percentage of whatever your “down line” recruits  makes)

This is a constant system where you will have to keep recruiting new people all the time. Because not everybody you requite will stay, it is hard to find the monthly cost of purchasing products. It is also hard work and most do not succeed and give up easily. Or just become product buyers.

Then you will, in turn, push them to get more people who they can recruit because the more they recruit the more money you will make as you will be getting a commission from their sales as well.

As a former MLM marketer myself I think in order for you to make any money you have to be aggressive in recruiting.

Pros of MLM.

  • You can set your working time
  • It will help to boost your self-confidence.
  • Work from home or can be a Part-time side gig to supplement your income

The Cons of MLM

  • Hard work
  • Products are costly.
  • You need to buy a starter pack.
  • People only join if they see you earning money this can take years.
  • Many bad companies out there.
  • You cannot promote as you would like they have many rules of what you can do and can’t.
  • Many products although are not allowed are widely sold elsewhere like eBay and other market places
  • Most companies tell you, you cannot sell by any other means but by personal (person to person) but the products can be found online, I found the products I was selling on Amazon costing much less than the selling price the company had listed.

Now we will look at Affiliate Marketing

According to Investopedia:

Affiliate marketing is an advertising model in which a company compensates third-party publishers to generate traffic or leads to the company’s products and services.

The third-party publishers are affiliates, and the commission fee incentivizes them to find ways to promote the company. This is an advertising model in which a company compensates third-party publishers to generate traffic or leads to the company’s products and services.

To start an affiliate marketing business, it is best to start with something you know, if you have a passion for something even if you are not very knowledgeable you can gain knowledge by doing research on the subject, there are platforms that will teach you how. Wealthy Affiliate is one such platform.

Or if you have a hobby or your job previous or current. Whatever you have chosen will become your niche.

Then you will need to build your website, this task may seem daunting, it takes only 30 seconds using WordPress.

Then you will need to add relevant content to your website and find affiliate programs.

Companies like Amazon will give you links that you place on your website, then you draw people to your site, this takes time as you have to gain the trust of your audience.

Conclusion

It takes work, consistency, patience, you may be thinking you cannot do this, for whatever reason you give yourself in my case it was too old, not a technical person, not a writer, among others. But there is a quote that I love to use to motivate me and it is

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can

achieve.” – Napoleon Hill
