Getting Started

Getting paid online is not difficult.  The key with any program is to know which ones are decent and which ones to avoid.

If you are just starting out and do so without any guidance, you will run into many of the unsavory types programs that exist.  These are programs where you will pay money and receive no monetary benefit, even if you follow the instructions of the program provider.  That's what we are here to help you avoid.  Use the information within this website to guide you to find the best services that you will actually get paid from.

But there are legitimate programs that will get you paid, providing you are willing to spend some time on those programs.  You also need to set your expectations which will be explored on this page.​

Here are the top three (3) methods that you can use to help earn income online:

#1 - Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is a method of earning online revenue whereby you enter into an agreement with vendors, like Walmart, etc., and they give you a coded link or banner to display on your website.  If visitors of your website click and the link and buy from that vendor, you get a percentage of the sale.

If you are capable of finding programs that pay on a monthly basis (recurring income) this is truly where this type of get paid arrangement shines.​  It can be a great way to consistently earn revenue.

#2 - Revenue Sharing Websites

Revenue sharing websites, like, displays ads on your articles that you write and publish on their platform.  Whenever readers click on those ads, you will get a portion of the ad revenue.  You need to be aware that you will need many articles for this to amount to any decent amount of money but it is certainly possible.

In this section I will discuss many of the websites that participate in this type of revenue generation as well as the challenges you will face.​

#3 - Freelancing

There are plenty of freelance sites available.  Some of the more well known are,  If you are skilled in such fields as writing, graphic design, web design, etc., you can use these venues to get paid.  Of course, it is not limited to only these fields.  If people need work done, and it can be handled online, freelancing can be utilized.

This avenue tends to be the most labor intensive but many have generated full time incomes using it.​

Setting Expectations...

Try to get out of your mind anything that promises that you will get rich quick or get rich with little to no work.  No one is going to pay you for nothing.  Life has never worked that way and it never will.  And even on the rare occasions when there are anomolies and people do make a quick buck, those opportunities shore up quickly as everyone else hurries to try and take advantage.​  America's gold rush is a perfect example of this.  I'm sure you can think of a ton of these yourself.

Now that we have gotten that out the way, i.e., no such thing as get rich quick, etc., you need to realize that there is work involved in every get paid endeavor that you participate in.

So, let's get started, as the title suggests. Here's what to do. Take a look at the following link (it opens in a new window):
