make money

I continually hear talk about earning online, where someone says that this or that system is better than others. As you know if you have been reading me for some time, I have always said that the system you are using is not very important, but rather the capacity of those who manage it. If you have entrepreneurial skills, you will also get money out of turnips. This fact is so true that today I go so far as to make a statement that could sound incredible: when we talk about earning money online, any system works and, paradoxically, there are no scams .

Many people complain too easily and at the slightest and imperceptible obstacle, they immediately label this or that system as a scam. In my old post, I talked about systems for selling on Facebook. I have included links to applications that allow you to turn a Facebook page into a sort of online store. One day, the company of one of these free applications changes page. The application still exists and is still free, but to download it, you have to go to a different page on the same site. Well, you won’t believe it, but a person who wrote to me immediately came: “those apps are tarots! They are all paid! “.

As you can see, the slightest obstacle was enough to authorize that person to talk about scam or tarot information. How should I feel about such complaints? Apart from the fact that I am not responsible for what other companies are doing (a software that is free today, tomorrow may no longer be, regardless of my will), but in that case it was enough to browse 2 seconds on the company website, to find the free application. In fact, that’s what I did. I surfed two seconds, found the application page and corrected the link on my article. So what is a scam? A system that does not work. But that system doesn’t work at all, or are you not able to make it work ?

Now that you understand that any system for making money online is good, now that you understand that entrepreneurial skills are needed to make money, we can talk about rankings. Yes, because today I would like to classify some systems to make money online. I didn’t consider them all because they are too many. I decided to consider only the most used ones. However, since these systems require a greater or lesser entrepreneurial ability to make these systems work, I decided to make three different classifications. We begin to order some online earning systems from the easiest to the most difficult.

Easy management of some online revenue systems

  1. Earn by clicking, responding to surveys, etc.
  2. Earn with infoproducts
  3. Make money with a blog
  4. Make money with affiliations
  5. Make money with MLM

Before coming to criticize what I wrote, I immediately tell the fanatics of this or that system that it is a personal vision of mine. This is my personal ranking and it cannot be otherwise. In fact the difficulty in using this or that system is very subjective. A system that is easy for me, for another person it can be difficult and vice versa. In my opinion, earning by clicking is very easy, in fact, just click. I think any person who can turn on a computer also knows how to click, right? Then the infoproducts arrive, then the blog, then the affiliations and finally the MLM or network marketing, if you prefer.

Attention: I think MLM doesn’t work and I wouldn’t even consider it a real business model, because inside it there are elements that make it totally inefficient. I advise against any MLM system. I’ll explain why. To sell a product you have to advertise it. If the general public does not know it, you will never be able to sell it. Advertising, however, has a cost and this will inevitably end up in the price of the product. Now, those who make MLM tell you that for this reason, the products sold with multilevel systems cost less. Here, however, there is a fundamental error because the exact opposite is true. To sell products with that system, you must necessarily involve thousands of sellers. Each of these sellers must be remunerated. Well, in your opinion, where will they get the money to pay all these sellers? From the sale of the product! This is why a product sold with the MLM system can never be as cheap as a similar product sold in supermarkets. The companies that make MLM (the only ones that make money on this system) know this very well and to convince people they boast superior qualities of their products. Often miraculous qualities. Now, you understand to me: if a product was really miraculous, it would sell itself and no sales network would be needed to promote it. Instead let’s face it, the quality of these products is identical to that of supermarkets. So they cost more and have the same quality. This is why a product sold with the MLM system can never be as cheap as a similar product sold in supermarkets. The companies that make MLM (the only ones that make money on this system) know this very well and to convince people they boast superior qualities of their products. Often miraculous qualities. Now, you understand to me: if a product was really miraculous, it would sell itself and no sales network would be needed to promote it. Instead let’s face it, the quality of these products is identical to that of supermarkets. So they cost more and have the same quality. This is why a product sold with the MLM system can never be as cheap as a similar product sold in supermarkets. The companies that make MLM (the only ones that make money on this system) know this very well and to convince people they boast superior qualities of their products. Often miraculous qualities. Now, you understand to me: if a product was really miraculous, it would sell itself and no sales network would be needed to promote it. Instead let’s face it, the quality of these products is identical to that of supermarkets. So they cost more and have the same quality. Often miraculous qualities. Now, you understand to me: if a product was really miraculous, it would sell itself and no sales network would be needed to promote it. Instead let’s face it, the quality of these products is identical to that of supermarkets. So they cost more and have the same quality. Often miraculous qualities. Now, you understand to me: if a product was really miraculous, it would sell itself and no sales network would be needed to promote it. Instead let’s face it, the quality of these products is identical to that of supermarkets. So they cost more and have the same quality.

So why did I put MLM in the ranking? Put it that way, MLM even looks like a scam. However, if you ask yourself this question, you have not read the initial premise that I did. Because there is no doubt that some people are able to use this system and make money from it. I repeat: if you know how to do it, you also take money out of turnips. Do you want a striking example? Davide Simeoni, one of the best Folletto vacuum cleaners in Italy, sold something like 17,072 Folletto vacuum cleaners in 16 years of career. Think, he managed to sell a vacuum cleaner even to the owner of a competing company, DeLonghi. The Vorwerk (the company that produces the Kobolds) in 2009 increased its turnover by 6.5% while the sales of vacuum cleaners in Italy, in that year, had an overall drop of 6.8%. In conclusion, as you can see we are talking about the classic seller who manages to fill ice from the Eskimos. However, to make these numbers, considerable skills are required. That’s why I put MLM at the bottom of my personal ranking. This is a “calibrated” system at the start, with the wrong assumptions yet there are people who manage to make money from it. It is therefore a very difficult system to master and should be placed at the bottom of the ranking of the ease of online earning methods.

I made the affiliations just before the MLM, because they represent an income system that is not easy to start. There is a whole world behind the affiliations that need to be known. It is not enough to insert a link in a blog. If you do so you will never earn anything or at the most you will collect a few cents. Instead, affiliate professionals can earn thousands of euros a month. Given the difficulty and the necessary know-how, I put the affiliations before the MLM and after the blog. To look good, however, I would have had to put the blogs at the bottom of the table, because to monetize them properly a considerable skill is required. Perhaps, earning large sums with a blog is the most difficult road.

Well, we have reached the second ranking. Yes, because I know people who make a salary with MLM but they practically work like mules. They are people who have no other thoughts in their minds outside the sale of their products. Now, I ask these people: but if you dedicated yourself to other more efficient systems, wouldn’t you make more money? Your company does not explain it to you, but you should always strive for maximum results with minimum effort . The MLM for the company is highly efficient, but for the sellers it is not at all. The second ranking therefore (it too is the result of my vision and therefore totally subjective), tries to measure the efficiency of an online earning system.

Efficiency of some online revenue systems

  1. Earn with infoproducts
  2. Make money with a blog
  3. Make money with affiliations
  4. Earn money with MLM / Earn by clicking, responding to surveys, etc.

As you can see, earning money with MLM I put them in fourth place on an equal footing. Both, in fact, allow you to “round up” your salary by committing yourself a lot. Too much, in my opinion. As I told you, in fact, a good entrepreneur should always aim for maximum profit with minimum effort and, in my opinion, the big Internet marketers are perfect entrepreneurs, because I assure you that they never strive more than the minimum necessary. A large Internet marketer said that you should never reinvent the wheel every time: you should always try to copy the winning strategies of others. Copy “cum grano salis” though. Yes, because the “bovine” copy and paste doesn’t get you anywhere.

The affiliations I placed in third place, because in principle to make a lot of money it is necessary to make large numbers (in terms of daily unique visitors). There would be a quibble about the type of affiliations, because some make much more than others (eg the PPS makes more than the PPC if compared to the number of visitors), but the general line does not change much. From these two rankings we can see very well which are the online earning systems that I believe should be used: infoprodotti, blogs and affiliations. At this point you can better understand the reason for some of my repeated statements in various past posts. In fact, I’ve always said that the blog is the heart of web marketing and online earnings. The reason is soon to be said:within a blog, multiple online earnings systems can coexist . A blog can be monetized in dozens of different ways, including infoproducts and affiliations. That’s why the blog, in my opinion, is the main way to make money online and people like this have understood it perfectly for a long time. Precisely for this reason, perhaps it is also the most difficult system.

Some might argue that managing a blog is too expensive, because you have to continually write quality content (minimum one post per day according to some, minimum 3 posts per week in my opinion). A good website on the other hand should not be updated continuously. Apparently therefore, creating a website by placing affiliations or infoproducts on it would seem to be the easiest way. Apparently. In reality, things are different, because a blog allows you to do things that are not possible with a website. A blog allows you to become authoritative within a sector that you know well and of which you are possibly passionate. Being authoritative is an indispensable condition for being able to sell services or products online. If I am a tuning expert, I can prove it by talking about those things in a blog. Do you know what will happen? That the people who want to change their bike will come to my workshop, because they will be sure to put themselves in the hands of an expert. The blog allows you to establish a relationship of trust with your readers, who can interact with you, commenting on your articles. This cannot be done with a simple website.

In the efficiency ranking, I put the blog in second place, after the infoproducts. Why? Because managing a blog is more difficult than creating an infoprodotto and selling it. Creating infoproducts is easier but that doesn’t mean that infoproducts make more. It is not so and can never be, because a blog can potentially make much more than an infoprodotto. Why? Because the blog can also include infoproducts. Because a blog allows you to add together the incomes of several different systems (eg affiliations, infoproducts, consultancies, etc.). A blog can also be used to promote an online store (indeed, if you do e-commerce I suggest you adopt this strategy). Here then is that if we want to measure the absolute earning potential of the various systems, we need a third ranking.

Potential return of some online revenue systems

  1. Blog
  2. infoprodotti
  3. Affiliations

This is the gold ranking of online earning systems that potentially make the most. If you can make 1,000 with affiliations, you can make 100,000 with infoproducts. If you can do 100,000 with infoproducts … with a blog you have no profit limits . And to think that there are people who insist on stating that “today with blogs it is no longer possible to earn”
