The Internet money machine

My research into how to make a living online from the comfort of my home continues.

I’ve been learning a lot the past few weeks. I’ve been doing a lot of reading, a lot of web surfing, a lot of googling to see who out there is telling the truth and who’s full of poop.

What I’ve come up with as a possibly profitable business activity is affiliate marketing. That’s where you get people to go to Web sites that sell products they’re interested in – for which you get a decent commission. I think, if done right, it can actually work.

I haven’t made my first million yet by any means. So far I’ve made a $5 profit. 😉 But, hey, that’s 5 bucks.

There are a few ways to do this affiliate marketing thing. One is buying ads on Google for specific keywords that send people to a Web page selling a related product. One that teaches you how to play bass guitar, for instance.

For that you want to pick good products that are worth people’s money, that people actually want to buy, and that make the ordering process really easy. These products – most of which are downloadable software or e-books – are available through ClickBank.com.

And to make things easier, there’s a service called CB Mall that puts it all in one searchable storefront. Because the Click Bank interface is pretty dry and unsearchable. You can’t just type in “google” to find products on how to make the best of Google AdWords. With CB Mall, you can.

So that’s where I am so far. Look for a search box for CB Mall on this blog in the near future. And I’ll be recommending products from time to time as I find decent stuff. And if you want to learn more about how CB Mall works and what it offers, here’s a free course on the 15 ways CB Mall can earn you money.

Sounds like Duncan is waking up from his nap…he did it again last night — with a 12-hour stretch this time? This baby loves his mummy. 😉
