All the Truth About Making Money Online

October 24, 2016 8 Comments



Want to know all the truth about making money online? You are in the right place. Thousands of people do online search every day trying to find a program that can make them money using the internet.

When they do their search most of them have no knowledge which program to choose, which one can really make them money and which one will waste both their time and money. They rely solely on their intuition and that’s a huge mistake.

You can’t and must not rely on your intuition when it comes to making money online. You have to rely on your experience and knowledge.

If you have no knowledge about making money online you should learn from someone who has that knowledge and who can direct you in the right direction so you can avoid falling for scams.


The main problem

The main problem that I see online is that most programs that claim to teach you how to make money online are trying to mislead folks. Most of the time they provide a mediocre training that is NOT enough for people who are just starting out.

The truth is that without a proper knowledge you won’t be able to achieve your financial goal. That is the main issue with most programs that I’ve seen so far. They provide a decent support and in fact leave people in the dark.

You pay them for a mediocre training and then when starting to apply the knowledge in practice you have a lot of questions. Questions are not answered properly or in time and very often it takes a few days in order to get a reply or explanation.

So, it takes too much time and finally most people quit. They have a lot of questions and simply can’t wait 2,3 days for each reply they expect.

So, the major problem here is training and support. These two aspects are the main reason why people fail to achieve their financial goals online.

The last major reason is that most programs that I’ve seen so far make unrealistic claims and promises they fail to deliver on. They show people astronomic numbers trying to convince them that they can start making thousands of dollars in the next few days.

They try to convince folks that making money online is very different from making it offline and that’s why it’s very easy.

Most people that are searching for such opportunities online believe that they are all real and think that online world is really different from the offline world. In fact, there is no difference at all.

The only difference of the online world from offline is that working online is a bit easier because you don’t need to pay salaries, rent an office or pay tax.

You are free to work as much as you want and your income directly depends on how hard you are willing to work.

Plus you can earn a lot of money online, WAY more than offline because online world has no limits. But it requires time, effort, knowledge and patience. There is no way to earn lots of money by working 10 minutes a day from your computer. Forget it.




Making money online: what you need to make it work

Unfortunately, most people still believe in this myth and instead of doing a research to clarify the things, they go and sign up for low quality programs that promise them huge profits in 30 days or even 24 hours.

So, be careful when doing your research because you’re going to put your hard money at risk. You can’t expect quick results within the next few days. At least you need to get some training and learn some simple techniques that will ensure your success.

A solid training I’m talking about includes text and video tutorials plus completing some tasks that may take about 2,3 weeks to complete. In my opinion, this is the minimum to ensure your success.

A training that promises to teach you the stuff you need within a day or two is not the right training. You better pass on it. And after completing the training you must allow and give yourself some time until you start to see some good results.

For some people it may take several months, for others it may take 2,3 years, some people get results in the first month.

On average you need one year at least to start seeing some steady income from your online efforts. This is the truth of making money online.

If you see a program that promises you to start making lots of money by tomorrow, run away from it. Don’t get fooled by fake income screenshots or fake video testimonials. Most of the time this kind of info was made by paid actors from freelance sites, such as




Programs to choose from

I also want to briefly explain what opportunities are available online so you can choose the right one that won’t waste your time.


Binary options

One of the most advertised opportunities available online is trading binary options, which mainly means that you will be trading currency pairs trying to predict market. Predicting market is impossible though sometimes you can do it.

Most binary trading platforms available online promote their automated softwares and claim that their software will do all the work for you on autopilot.

They promise you huge profits in a short space of time. This is not true and you should avoid them. Making money through trading binary options is possible, but without automated softwares.

You have to rely on your experience and knowledge, not the software. Anyway, this opportunity is not recommended due to high level of risk of losing money. It’s like gambling.


Multilevel marketing

MLM – multilevel marketing. It’s when you earn commissions both from your sales and from sales of people that you refer to the same program.

Not always, but very often MLMs have many complaints, their products are expensive and not competitive.

MLMs require strong selling skills and you have to hold home parties in order to gather people together and promote your products. The opportunity is very specific and I can’t recommended it to everyone.


High ticket programs

High ticket programs are everywhere online today and to be honest, I’m not a big fan of such programs at all. Not because they are bad or because they are scams.

Because what they teach you doesn’t work most of the time. You know such programs by their highly overpriced products.

Their membership packages normally will cost you a few thousand dollars and creators of such programs try to persuade you that the secret of making money online lies in promoting and selling high ticket items.

They preach the following idea: It’s better to sell one high ticket item and earn $500 per sale instead of selling 20 items in order to earn the same amount. That’s true maybe for those that have years of experience and know how to promote and sell high ticket items.

I’m not a big fan of such approach to be honest. Because I always promote products and earn between $10 – $150 per sale and I know that it’s WAY easier to sell 20 items $50 each than selling one item for $500.

I have a friend of mine, Rick who has been a member of such program called SFM (specialized in selling high ticket items) and he ended up spending about $7.000 for paid traffic and failed to make even a single sale.

The creators of SFM, Stuart Ross & Jay Kubassek promised that their system was perfect and they are going to do all the promotion and ensure that Rick would make sales.

But my friend Rick failed to make any sales within 12 months and finally left SFM completely disappointed.

And keep in mind that SFM is considered to be one of the best programs online for high ticket promotions. Yet, they failed to help Rick.

That’s why, I never recommend such programs for people who are new to making money online. Because people join them, spend thousands of dollars and get zero results. Not a good start really.


Online jobs

You can find an online job and earn money if you have certain skills and knowledge. This includes virtual assistant jobs, transcription jobs, writing jobs, accounting jobs, online tutoring.

You can find more info on my other website ( ).

The bottom line here is that by doing it you won’t make a lot of money. It’s like finding a regular job offline and working for someone else.


Online surveys

You can complete online surveys and earn some extra money. Not a full time income, just some extra cash.

For more info please read my article on my another website (

The bottom line here is that like I said, whatever you choose, paid surveys or paid to click sites, don’t expect full time income. Just some extra cash.


Some other online opportunities

There are also some other opportunities available online you can choose from. For more info please read my other article ( ).

Also, you can find a lot of good stuff in this article and all the info in it is based on practical methods, not theory. I’m sorry that some links are not in the form of clickable links in this article because of Google rules.

When I interlink my sites I avoid adding clickable links because Google may think that I try to get backlinks and manipulate search engines. As a result Google can penalyze my site. That’s why I try to avoid such things when I can.


CPA marketing

CPA marketing is when you promote free offers from CPA networks and earn commissions when people complete some easy and simple tasks online, such as completing online surveys, email submit, downloading a trial software etc.

This business method is legit and I’m actually making some money using this method. You can read my article on CPA marketing here.

It contains some practical steps on how you can start too. Again, it takes time to achieve success, probably months, up to 1 year or even more.

The most obvious con of CPA marketing is that it hugely relies on paid advertising, paid traffic which means you need some money to invest in CPA marketing in order to achieve results.

From my experience you need at least $1000 to start testing and trying different cpa offers and finally find some profitable campaigns.





Affiliate marketing

The last and the best and the most reliable and consistent way of making money online is affiliate marketing. My main income comes from affiliate marketing and that’s why I always recommend to start with this method because it doesn’t require huge investments.

But it requires time, effort and some patience if you want to achieve anything good in this business. If you are impatient and lazy then I think internet marketing is not for you. You better go and find a regular job offline.

The best thing about affiliate marketing is that you can start for free without investing a dime and then later you will need to upgrade to a premium account IF you are serious about making money online. Keep in mind, you can start for FREE!

No pressure whatsoever, no credit card required. No upsells, no downsells, no oversells. For more info I suggest that you take a look at two of my articles on how you can start making money online for free:

Article 1

Article 2

Here is another article of mine: # 1 affiliate program

And here is the testimonial page about my # 1 recommended affiliate program.

And here is my main website ( where you can find WAY more information on how to start making money online. You can contact me via both sites and I will respond shortly.




And here is the table that clearly shows what you can get as a free member of my recommended affiliate marketing program.

This is really a good start for anyone looking for a genuine program and wanting to start without huge investments.

And support is really helpful. There is also a live chat available where you can ask questions and get support whenever you need it.


Final word on the truth about making money online

I believe after reading this short article it’ll become clear for you that money doesn’t grow on trees. You can make money only through hard work and patience. This is the truth about making money online without any exaggeration and hiding info from you.

The truth of making money online lies in your desire to learn and acquire some needed skills. Like any success in life. It comes through a hard work and patience.

One thing you should understand from the first day: if you start online the wrong way you will be doing things that will never bring you closer to your goal which means you will be wasting your time.

That’s why, it’s really important to understand what you are doing and which program to join. And the program I’m talking about here is the right one. It has over 400.000 members and it’s counting.

I’ve been a member of it since 2013 and I’m going to stay there for years to come. Because so far it’s been the best program that I’ve come across on the internet. They explain you all the truth about making money online from day one.

They never give anyone unrealistic promises and that’s why folks know what to expect and what is required from them in order to see results from their online efforts.

    You have a very extensive take on the truths of making money online here. There are so many ways to make some money thru the internet but most of them won’t take you where you want to be. So it falls on us to decide which method and route is best for us. I myself have tried a couple of ways and found some success. I am now moving into affiliate marketing to see how it goes.

    Thanks for writing this good post.

      Hi Andrew,

      You’re right. There are so many different ways to make money online but most of them are either useless or ineffective. Some are good only for making some extra cash at best. Others like you say, will never take you closer to your goal. The only method that I’ve found effective for me are CPA marketing and affiliate marketing. Though I have WAY more success in the latter. I’m still struggling with CPA to be honest and now I’ve started to see some consistent income from my CPA campaigns. I recommend you to go with these and I believe you’ll your goal.

  2. Darren says:

    You certainly cover a lot of options for making money online in this article, and you have some good advice here. I’ve often wondered whether it’s better to sell big ticket items or cheaper products with a smaller commission. I think you are right in that people are more likely to buy something for $50 than for $500, but then I guess that depends on what it is. If you can target specifically a market who is looking to buy those $500 items, then the sales should come. Shouldn’t they?

    • Rufat says:

      I think you’re right. I’m also of the opinion that selling cheap products is the way to go. This way you can make sales much faster and easier. I know exactly that very few people can sell high ticket items successfully online. And believe me they struggle too. They spend 3,4 months or even more to make at least one sale. Very often they make one sale in 6 months and earn the same amount that you earn within the same period by selling cheap products. That’s why I think selling cheap products is the best option for anyone wanting to make money online. I can’t agree that targeting specific market should make you sales. I know someone who has been doing it for one full year and he didn’t make a single sale. But he spent thousands of dollars. I think in this article I showed some real ways that can make money anyone if they are patient and goal oriented.

    Hey Rufat,

    I really love your post with a much more realistic look on how online businesses work. I know I’m one of those folks who almost bought into the idea of how making money online is easy-peasy and overnight. But the truth is it takes a process and not all methods are the same, whether you do freelance or online marketing.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Anh,

      The idea of making money and becoming rich overnight is very dangerous. The truth is that it’s not going to happen. Like you say, this process takes time, effort and patience. Of course it requires knowledge first. And the truth is that results are not guaranteed. You never know what you can achieve online. Some start making a solid income within 5,6 months. For some it can take 1,2 years or even more. So, you never know what may happen. I think in this article I showed some real ways that anyone can take advantage of if they are serious about making money online.

    You’re right Rufat,

    I perfectly agree with you. Many programs online do promise to help you make money. But the real truth in the matter as you rightly said is that most these programs do not provide any proper training that can really help you make any money as they claim.

    I see that they are only interested in making money from you – instead of rather teaching you how to make real and genuine money online. And I will never accept any offer from a program that promises to make me rich overnight.

    I want to use this opportunity to really thank you for introducing Wealthy Affiliate to me. What will do if I has not known about them. An online platform that teaches you all that you need in order to build a successful business online. Indeed Wealthy Affiliate is the #1 recommended money making program anyone can start with.

    • Rufat says:

      You’re right Stephen. I would say most programs try to sell you shortcuts to success instead of teaching folks how to achieve success through a hard work and dedication. Shortcuts may work for some people while they don’t work at all for many other people. That’s why people need a proper training on how to build a business online on a strong foundation. I’m glad you’re on your way to building a business of yours. I believe if you do some more work and have some more patience you will start to see money in your account. Let me know if you need any help with your business and I will be happy to help you out.
