There are a lot of websites on the internet that offer money and/or recognition for good quality tutorials. Each website specializes in different topics and has its own conditions and guidelines.
Some websites accept written tutorials and articles. Some websites accept video tutorials. No matter what your speciality is and how you prefer making your tutorial, there are websites that would suite everybody.
I’ve stumbled upon MLM and have decided to give it a try. I’ve heard a lot of bad things about MLM, but I’ve also heard a lot of good things. So what’s the truth? Is it good or bad? Well, I’ve come up with my own conclusion – this is entirely my own opinion – and I want to share it with you today.
As you read further, you’ll see that I explain exactly what MLM is and how it works. Don’t stop reading until the very last word, however, because you’ll also see that I also write about the system that I’ve been using, which is similar to MLM but soooooo much easier – I just love it!
There are a lot of products that could be made and sold on the internet, and a million different ways that you could do it. In this post, I’m going to be discussing the top 3 ways with which anybody (even the less-creative people, like me) could make money by designing and selling products.
The websites on my list could be classified as ‘on-demand-printing’ websites. What is on-demand-printing? Firstly, it means less work for you and almost no expenses. And in more detail, well, in short – you choose the type of product that you would be interested in selling, you upload a picture (or in some cases, a design) that you want printed or designed (either something you designed yourself, or something that you obtained that is royalty free and may be used for commercial purposes – check the site for the precise guidelines), place your order and then they make it.
Lately more and more bloggers are starting to sell private ad space on their blogs and have stopped using Google AdSense altogether – some because they feel that they are not earning a lot of money from AdSense; others because they feel that the ads being displayed on their site isn’t relevant to their content; some for completely other reasons.
But there are also a lot of people that just make use of Google AdSense and think that private advertising is too much of a hassle and that you can’t make as much money from it.
Today I’m simply going to be listing all the pros and cons of private advertising and Google AdSense and let you decide for yourself.
If you already have your own blog, or if you are planning on starting your own blog, you could easily make money with advertising.
You could make use of Google Adsense, Bidvertiser or private advertising. I will be exploring all three options in this post, so keep reading!
