Making Money Online Is Possible... Here's How

by Trent Brownrigg

Are you trying to make money online but just can't seem to get the income you want? There are thousands upon thousands of aspiring online business entrepreneurs who are in the same boat as you right now. You are not alone! However, in this article, I am going to give you some tips on how to actually make money online and eventually bring in a very nice income.

Before we get started let's talk a little about who I am and why it's even worth your time to listen to me. Am I rich? No. My bank account would be laughable compared to Bill Gates or Donald Trump, but compared to the average person trying to make money online from a home business you could say I am doing quite well.

I started my online business about three and a half years ago and slowly but surely increased my income to the point of financial independence. I now make a very good full time income online and only work a few hours per week. It wasn't easy... far from it! But it was worth it. I don't consider myself to be some money making guru. But I have been making money online, and teaching people to do the same, long enough to know what I am talking about.

So how can you make a living from home? Here are the steps necessary to make money online and eventually bring in a very good income...

1) Define Your "Why" - Really the first, and most important, step to becoming rich is not "how" to do it but "why" to do it. Without your why, your how will be nearly impossible. Once you have found your why, it is much easier to find your how to become rich. You must look deep inside yourself to find out why you want to become rich. Once you have found it write it down and keep it in a place where you will see it everyday. After you find your why you can search for your how. Remember, there is no easy road to riches. If there was then everyone would be rich.

2) Write Your Plan - When you are getting started you will need a plan. What exactly do you want to accomplish? How long will it take to do it? What steps do you need to take to ensure it happens? How many hours are you going to put in each day? How much money can you afford to spend on marketing? Etc... Think about these questions and write down the answers. Make your plan realistic and stick with it as closely as possible. It can be modified along the way as things change but you should always have a realistic plan to follow.

3) Find Your "How" - Now it's time to start searching for how you will make money online. There are many different ways to make money online. A few of the most popular ones are: business opportunities, affiliate marketing, network marketing, niche marketing, creating your own e-book, or doing an actual online job. Most of these actually go hand-in-hand so you will usually be doing more than one at a time. They are usually lumped under one umbrella called internet marketing.

My suggestion is to start out with an actual paying online job as well as at least one of the others. Doing this will allow you to bring in an online income while getting started in something that you will eventually make a lot more money doing. For instance, you could work a couple hours per day in an online job while spending the rest of your spare time learning how to market affiliate programs.

I actually know of a great program where that is exactly what you do. You make money working online jobs while also getting into affiliate marketing and a business opportunity and learning to market on the internet. You can find it here:

4) Get Educated - Walking blindly into an online business without having some basic education is suicide! You need to know the basics of online marketing and promoting. You can get this education for free all over the place on the internet. A great place to start is internet marketing forums and articles.

You also need to know programs to definitely stay away from before you make the mistake of jumping into some overhyped dishonest opportunity or even an all out scam. A good way to be sure you don't get sucked into one of these is to stay away from anything that promises ridiculously large amounts of money in a short period of time. Or any opportunity that says you will make a lot of money without doing any, or very little, work. It's just not true!

To help you out a little here are a few things I can tell you right now to avoid - paid to read emails, randomizers, doublers, paid to surf, HYIP, the oprah paypal letter, etc... of course there are more things to stay away from but I can't go into detail in this article due to length. I will tell you that the Honest Income Program mentioned above gives you a lot more programs to avoid and tells why you should avoid them.

5) Get Started - Now it's time for you to get started making money in your new business. It is critical in this step to be focused. Don't go jumping around to every opportunity you see just because it promises riches. Stick with what you started and put your full effort into it. It is also critical that you do not expect too much too fast. It is going to take time to start making money online and it is going to take even longer to start making a significant amount of income.

While you are getting started you will be learning a LOT. In fact, you will probably feel like you are on information overload and feel overwhelmed by everything there is to learn. Don't worry it will all come together. Just take things one step at a time in an organized manner. The learning is something that never stops. You will constantly be learning new things in online business but the beginning is probably the most crucial and the toughest.

The most important part of this step is to TAKE ACTION! Yes, there is a lot to learn and a lot to do but the only way to get anywhere is to do something with it. Making money online is largely about taking action. The more you sit back and wait for the "right time" the less you are actually out there making money.

6) Work Hard and NEVER Quit - This is probably the best advice that was ever given to me and I consider it the most important tip I can pass on to anyone trying to make money online. No matter what anyone tells you making money online is hard work. You have to put in a lot of time and effort before you reap the rewards of it. You will fail at times, that is certain! However, you will also succeed if you get up from those failures and keep going!

That's it. Those are the six basic steps to making money online and eventually bringing in a great full-time income. Of course, this article is a simplified version of what it truly takes. There is more detail to making money online that cannot be fully explained in one article but the above is basically all you need to do. It will not be easy but it can certainly be done. There are thousands upon thousands of people making money online right now. Many of them are very rich because of it. Follow the above steps and you can be making a full time income on the internet soon enough.

e-Currency Exchange Exposed and How Can You Profit from It

by Eric de Bosque

If you were to ask someone, "What is currency exchange or ecurrency exchanging?", most likely they would stare a blank look right back. Perhaps an educated guess would suggest that currency exchange has something to do with the foreign currency trading, or what is known as the forex market. But unlike trading the forex market online with foreign currency pairs, there is less risk involved and well, it is a different beast all together.

So what is it, exactly? Let's begin with what it's not. Making any money online involves risk, be it investing in the market, HYIP or an online business where you also invest your time and hard earned money on a website to promote your product or as an affiliate. Currency exchange is not MLM, doesn't require you to have a downline, a website, customers, no products to order, no special skills or prior experience, and no high investment to begin.

Currency Exchange (also known as e-currency exchange, e-currency exchanging, e-currency trading, etc.) is a global online economic system where digital currencies (e currency) are used for payment of goods and services on the internet which are backed by gold, silver or some other physical currency. is just one of many systems online that provides a platform for the exchange of different e-currencies to another and back to cash. They require investors like yourself to invest in e currencies putting cash into your system portfolio and console and provide a liquid market. Your portfolio receives daily gains of anywhere from 0.2 to 5%. Therefore on a $1,000 investment a user can expect to profit very close to $5 per day. Over the course of a year it's not uncommon to turn an initial investment of $1,000 into a $50,000 portfolio and profits of $200 a day.

There has recently been some confusion as to what has been going on with DXInOne, also known as DXSynergy, with some changes to the system, the slowdown of outxchanges and what exactly the role the investor plays as an "e-currency exchanger". But DXInOne clears things up. They affirm that their goal is not to be known as just an e-currency exchanging company that just trades one currency for another (there are others out there that just do this), but as an online global economic system in which one can spend their DXG (Gold) within the system. There is a bigger picture we need to look at with a bigger opportunity. They say that the DXSystem was never only about currency exchanging or money trading but about providing a fair environment where two parties could operate securely and where an income could be gained by anyone anywhere in the world who could work within the economy of the new global community. So would you be a "e-currency exchanger" per se? In a sense, yes. But it's really only part of how you make money. The portfolio and console are not the only sources of focus of the DXInOne system. What DXInOne is really all about is that, as an online community, it provides a safe environment for a sender to make payment to a receiver anywhere in the world that can be recognized as a legitimate transfer of value. And you can be a part of that.

Many services in which DXInOne are currently being released will provide a tremendous source of income flow such as the Google-like pay-per-click ads know as AdsXposed. And auctions similar to Ebay, but with a much more global client range, payment options, and most of all, security features. They will also be offering classified ads, discount booking and traveling services such as DXTravelAgent and DXConcierge to name a few. The list goes on.

There are a number of courses available online that can help anyone get started and become successful in the currency exchange market, and become familiar with the DXInOne community to add more profit to their portfolio arsenal. These courses offer essential resources and techniques that will help even the novice user make the most of their investment. Articles, reviews, and blogs more detailed in this field can be read if you did some homework online with a little research.

One course that offers a thorough comprehension of the system with online video training is Gary Jezorski's Currency Exchange Profits. It is one the most effective training available online and he offers one on one phone support, email support, and free upgrades and updates to his video series. His program will allow you to start your e-currency trading business by simply following the on-screen video tutorials and copying each step he teaches. And there are no wasting hours reading e-books. Gary's program also has an excellent affiliate program for those wanting to increase their earnings by promoting his product. Go to for more information. You can receive a free report by subscribing and getting access to Gary's site.

How to avoid losses in online investing?

by David Vagner

There is no 100% flawless full proof plans to always earn from investing on the internet for 3 main reasons:

1. Pyramid scheme - most of there program use the pyramid system which basically say that the person that invested first has a better chance to earn than the people after him.

2. Scam - these days almost every one can open his own investment site using a legal or illegal script, it's hard to spot a scammer but there are some ways to check it.

3. Luck - think of this as a gamble you win some you lose some.

I am using a very simple method to invest money on the internet

How to spot a scam? 1. License check - today its easy to get free license, many scammer use It in order to check for a hyip script license goes to This company sells hyip script and here you can check the hyips domain.

2. A scam site usually will buy for his host or domain for a very short time you can check its Expiration Date in site like this: If you see he paid for only one month that should light your bulb.

3. The design - cheap and ugly doesn't point it's absolutely a scam but you better think twice, scammer want to invest the minimum.

What to do before investing? After you check for scam signs comes the part of research. Check the program on big sites and money forums like MMG or GPF and see what the other investor has to say about it.

Check the monitors, these are sites the monitors the investment site by invest in them, the sort them by their status (pay, pending, problem and scam) and by the investors votes.

Monitors are very good to find some new programs to invest in. Remember, always check 4-5 monitors, there are many on the internet some good some not, compare the information. This a good one I check everyday Also this site has HYIP forum where you can ask your questions.

How to choose ? There are many options for investing high % low %, daily, weekly or monthly. The high % will not last long when it's a hyip. Auto surf usually last longer statistically mostly because it's easier and cheaper to open a hyip so most of the scammer concentrate there.

Some rules about investing If you choose a hyip with a high % for instance 150% in 3 days invest only on the first day, about 99% of these are scams but you could earn if you are on of the primary investor.

Many hyips now use the round system, the will keep on pay till they cover 90-95% of the investors money, after that the round is over and they use the money for advertising, if you want to participate in a round invest only in the first day of the round else you are throwing away your money.

* don't spend all at once - always make a test spend, if an auto surf upgrade costs 10$ don't buy 1000$ spend 10$ and check it, are they paying ?, how fast ? See if you like it because there are many good ones today.

Only after you made a test spend begin investing the big money.
