My mind is always full of questions, sometimes stupid, some times silly and some times really good questions. One question I always had in mind was – which is the most difficult way to make money online? I don’t think any way to make money online is difficult. With time even the most difficult ways to make money online become easy.
I thought of asking the above question to few of my friends and they told me a few ways they use to earn money online, but find it very difficult! Here are these few ways:
1. Affiliate Marketing
This is so far the most difficult way to earn money online many of my friends said. This is because it not only requires you to get traffic, but also you need to convert that traffic into dollars. With Adsense you just have to write, drive visitors and let the visitors go after clicking on your advertisements, but with affiliate marketing, you have to convince the visitors to actually buy the product you are promoting. Thus getting visitors isn’t enough. Another reason why many of my friends didn’t like affiliate marketing is because it requires you to do a lot more things than other ways. Also it involves more investment.
2. Guest Blogging!
When a few of my friends considered guest blogging as a difficult way to make money online, I was like, Damn! If guest blogging is difficult, what’s more easy? I don’t think guest blogging is difficult at all! Its easy way to make money online at least if compared to other ways like affiliate marketing and over all SEO. The only difficulty period in a guest bloggers life is when his writing is bad, he is lazy or if he finds it difficult to get a client. Other than that guest blogging is really easy in my opinion. For example I have drafted this post for the purpose of guest blogging where I’m promoting my own site AhemAhem magazine. You can draft a similar post and promote your own blog or website.
Another batch of people I asked this question considered Adsense as the most difficult way to make money online. Not because they couldn’t get traffic or some thing like that, but because they couldn’t protect their account from click bombers and prevent an account ban! If you are an Adsense publisher, you might have witnessed several stories of people whose accounts were banned. Though more than 50% of them deserved bans, but the rest 50% may be innocent who fell prey to click bombing by their competitors or simply some evil minded people!
4. Survey and paid to click sites
Earning from surveys and PTC sites is the most difficult way to make money online, I agree! They simply don’t work the way we want them to or we expect them to! For example, you fill 10 surveys fox XYZ survey site and after a few weeks during payout, you come to know that the site was scam! How was that? No one can predict the future of surveying. For example, you can check out the latest survey scam, Speak Asia. Also they pay very very less! Survey sites may prove to be a good earner, but PTC sites pay less than a cent per click! So in order to earn one dollar, you may even have to wait for a week or more! Further they have a set of rules which don’t allow you to click more than a certain number of times!
So, which of the above ways to make money online do you find difficult? Do let us know!
