Free Affiliate Marketing (PTC) Course

Share

If you've been on my site long enough, you already know I'm a successful affiliate marketer that earns about 5 figures per month. I don't throw around these numbers because I'm an arrogant bastard that likes to brag. I'm revealing these numbers as a source of inspiration for you. Because I was where you are now. I spent hours per day searching and applying to various work at home jobs. I know the feeling of waiting by your computer in the hopes that an employer would reply back to all the resumes I sent. I also know that awful feeling of despair you get when you don't hear back from any of these employers. What the f? Couldn't you have the decency to email me back & let me know that I wasn't qualified or the job was filled. (Sorry I just had a flash back.)

I know what's it like to be so desperate to make money at home, that you pay for some so called work at home job or product that claims you'll be making $50-$500 per week instantly. I also know the emotions of anger and embarrassment you feel when you learn these scum bags have just swindled you out of your hard earned money. So yeah I've been there too. But obviously you've seen that I have been able to shake all that stuff off and become successful with this affiliate marketing career. And if my simple Simon self can do it ,then you can too! 

Giving Back!

So I've decided to do you a favor and show you a free way of getting into affiliate marketing using some of the free and legitimate non traditional work at home opportunities I've discussed on this blog over the last couple of months.  The operative word here is FREE! So there should be no excuses as to why you can't apply what I'm about to teach you. Don't let me find out that you've been wanting to get into this career and not apply what I'm about to teach you. I know where you live and will come after you. lol

All jokes aside, keep in mind that the technique presented in this article is just ONE method of affiliate marketing. It's extremely limited! But it will get your feet wet and can make you a bit more money. At the end of the day if you want to earn the type of money I do, then you'll need a lot more techniques and skills which can be obtained with an internet marketing training website like Wealthy Affiliate. However, I know many of you can't afford the low cost monthly fee of this internet marketing training course at the moment. So I'm going to hook you up. By using the method listed in this article, you should be able to make enough to pay for your Wealthy Affiliate training and then excel into higher levels of income that I know you're capable of reaching with this career So Let's Get Ready To Rumble!

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Just in case you don't know, affiliate marketing is basically a fancy way of saying: getting paid to refer people to products, services or information they want. This is very different than many other home based business opportunties or MLMs you may be thinking of.  They typically involve referring family members, friends or anyone you can find to buy over priced products or services people don't want or need. We all know a family member or friend that tried to peddle some nonsense or get you to join some matrix they were part of. This isn't what affiliate marketing is about! When done correctly, you're just getting paid to providing people with solutions to problems they need help with and have asked for.

For instance many of you love the information on this blog. You've probably emailed some articles to a few friends or family members who are looking to work at home or avoid scams. Well that's sort of like doing affiliate marketing.  If you were an affiliate of my site, then you would get paid for doing this.  (Sorry I don't have an affiliate program but I do have a contest you can participate in.)

By the way affiliates can get paid various ways. Everyone knows you can get paid if someone buys something (PPS aka Pay Per Sale). But did you know you can also get paid if someone fills out a form for free information, join a newsletter, site, etc? This is known as CPA, CPL or PPL (Cost per action, cost per lead or pay per lead) You can also get paid if someone clicks on a link that you place on your site if you have one. Google has an affiliate program known as adsense that pays this way. So don't assume people need to buy something from you to get paid! Although a lot of techniques you learn focus on pay per sale, you can use them for the other type of affiliate programs as well. Trust me, I do it all the time.

How To Join An Affiliate Program?

1. You visit the site of a company you're interested in promoting or being affiliated with. (99.9% have affiliate programs. Just email the company if you can't find a link. to the program which is usually at the bottom of the page) You can also join an affiliate network which has many affiliate programs in one place.

2. You read about their affiliate program to discover how much you'll get paid, when and how.

3. You sign up to be an affiliate of the company. This is always FREE because it's obviously in the best interest of the company to have a fleet of people advertising for them for free.

4. You're provided a user name and password to login so you can see your stats, how much your owed and where to get your marketing material.

5. You login to get your free marketing material such as banners, ad copy and a free website with your unique id to use to refer people to their product, service or website. (The free website is managed by the company, you don't need to create one or know how to update it.  You just need to know how to copy & paste your website address.)

6. You go out and start promoting your website address to people that will be interested in this product, service or website.

The last step is where people have a lot of problems and where training is very important. This is the area I'm going to focus on and make your life easy.

 

How To Make Money With Affiliate Marketing Now?

Okay now that you know how this works, let's make some money.

1. First sign up for the following legitimate work at home opportunities. They're all free and legitimate and will be mentioned in the video. But you can use any company that you think is legitimate.

Hits4Pay.com, YouData.com, ClixSense.com

2. Watch the following video:

3. Wash, Rinse & Repeat. This can literally be done with a boat load of legitimate work at home opportunities you're involved in. If you don't know any, visit my recommendations page by clicking here.

4. Take Action! Don't just sit there and watch the video and think about it. Be about it!

5. Re-invest the money you'll earn back into yourself with affiliate marketing training or whatever else will make you happy.

That's it!

See how easy that is folks? You can literally keep repeating the steps over and over again by promoting various legit work at home offers you're involved with.  Next thing you know, you're making some decent money. Now will you be able to support your family with this type of money? I doubt it! Can this technique work for affiliate programs that aren't related to work at home? Nope. This was just one simple example of how you can make some seed money. I call it seed money because if you're smart you'll re-invest the money in other things that will make you more money such as some additional affiliate marketing training by a company like Wealthy Affiliate which teaches you many more techniques that can be used for any type of affiliate programs not just those limited to work at home.

Ultimately for you to make life changing money, you need the skills that pay the bill! This is especially true when it comes to making money at home. I think the fact that many of you have been searching for months or years can attest to this. Many of you have great skill sets but they're not necessarily in high demand when it comes to work at home jobs. An affiliate marketer is always in demand because companies will always need new customers to consume their product, service or website. Think about it.  When have you ever heard a company say that they have enough money so let's cut back on activities that make us more money. As Kat Williams would say: "Not never!"

Affiliate Marketing is Recession & Lay off Proof!

So you need to take advantage of this situation. Affiliate marketers aren't usually affected by recessions. If anything they may thrive off them because companies rely on them more to make up the profits they may be losing. So if you want to enjoy the type of lifestyle and income a trained affiliate like myself earns, then you need to re-invest in your self. After all, why do you think people go to college, law or medical school? It's not because they like spending money they don't have. It's because they know it's an investment in their future. They're NOT guaranteed success but they improve their likelihood of it with the acquisitions of skills that are highly sought after. Affiliate marketing is no different. You can learn the ropes but you won't succeed unless you're willing to take action and see your success through to the very end no matter what obstacles you face. And trust me, you will face many of them. 

As much as I love this career, I would be remissed if I didn't say it wasn't for everyone. That's the whole reason I wrote my article Top 10 Reasons To Avoid Affiliate Marketing. Joining a website like Wealthy Affiliate will teach you what you need to know but they can't make you successful. That still has to come from you. You need to have the strength to push forward with this career even if you don't see a dime or results right away or even after months of work. If you know that's not you, then just avoid this career all together and continue to search for a work at home job or just take what I've shown you today and make your little money with it.

At the end of the day you have choices either way. As always, just do what's best for you and be honest with yourself. Don't let me or anyone jeidi mind trick you into anything that may not be right for you!  In any event I hope you enjoyed my Free Affiliate Marketing Course. At the very least some of you will walk away from this article with a little more change in your pocket. If you found this article helpful, please share with others using the links below.

    Nice post Eddy.

    On a sidenote – your camtasia video is quite large on this page:

    Eddy,

    Excellent information compiled in a very comprehensible post! I just entered the world of google Adsense, and I will keep you posted on the outcome. Lately I’ve been flooded with affiliate emails and seeing them on almost every PTC (Paid-to-click) and SN (social networking) site. I have a clearer understanding of it now, in reading your blog, than in the bits of information here and there from these sites. Thank you for your continual update on all the pros and cons of Internet online businesses and sharing them with us.

  • Nancy

    Yes, Eddy. Your e-mails and blogs have been extremely helpful.

    I’m getting ready to take the plunge and go with Wealthy Affiliate. I said as soon as I could get the money together I would sign up with them. I’m going to give it all I can to become successful and self-sufficient in working at home. It’s a risk; but you have to continue to take risks to achieve your dream — your success. I’ll let you know how I’m coming along. Nancy

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Marcus,

    Thanks for the heads up! I’ll need to fix that. But hopefully you were still able to see the video.

    Elizabeth,

    Glad you find the information useful. Google adsense is a great way to make passive income, provided that you can get people to your site. By the way you can use sites like clixsense to advertise any page that you have google adsense on. It’s against their policy. So keep that in mind. That’s why I said this technique is very limited. But it’s a start. Make sure you always do your research on any opportunity you’re receiving, especially by email. The same rules apply for any work at home opportunity, do your homework: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams Hope this helps.

    Nancy,

    You’re very wise and truly understand life. There is no guarantees in life except for taxes and death. So I’m glad you understand this in terms of this new career as well. It will give you more of a realistic view going into this and I think that’s what will help you succeed. I look forward to hearing your progress.

    Hi Eddy,

    Great information ! , I have read your article and viewed your video. Have done step by step as specified and boom!! It is done wasn’t hard at all as you said. Gonna get my geek on lol.

    Thanks buddy,

  • http://philsfault.com/blog1 Phil ( philsfault ) Ames

    Your best video yet! Using CS as an example was brilliant. You showed everyone a very simple way to get FREE advertising for their “affiliate” programs. I loved how you interjected a bit of humor as well ( although you spelled “Creeping” wrong at the end of the video =P ). The only problem is that now I’m going to have to give “Wealthy Affiliate” a look – damn you! As if I didn’t have enough to do already.

    Your awesome Eddy, Keep spreading the love

  • Evelyn

    that was great information Eddy…..learning is the key here

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Phil,

    LOL, Glad you approve. Seems to be a winner here. You know what’s funny about that misspelling, I was staring at the word and thinking to myself this doesn’t look right. But did I bother to spell check? Of course not, with my lazy ass. How embarrassing! But I’m sort of use to that already. My blog is littered with spelling and grammatical mistakes. Thank goodness people look pass my simple simon ways. In any event, I’m glad I’ve made you consider WA now. You’re already pretty savvy at this stuff. But even I learned some new things from WA. So I think anyone can benefit from it. But to each their own. At least now folks can try one technique that won’t cost them a dime.

    Thanks to everyone that has left comments thus far about this article. I look forward to hearing some of the results soon. I know many of you will be getting some referrals very soon. So keep me posted if you do.

    As soon as I read through your post and watched your video I immediately signed into to the 3 sites and got started. Thank you for the information!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Letitia,

    Great to hear from you. I think this is isolated to your machine. I’ve tested this on several machines windows and mac and it works fine. Most people have been able to see it. Try accessing the article on another pc. Try clicking on the HD button when it starts playing. It’s automatically set up to play in HD mode. But maybe that may be causing an issue. So switching it off may help you. If not definitely just try a different computer maybe outside your home.

    Hope this helps.

    Eddy

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi! I got a bit intimidated in how all this works but I figured it out. I also had to zoom into your video it is a good thing i’m near sighted lol…anyway I gave it a try. Wish me luck!

    Wow Eddy!!! Your almost to the top ranking impressive :D

  • Letitia

    Okay…I don’t know what the difference is between Mozilla and Internet Explorer, but there is a difference. I just opened Mozilla and pulled up this site and I had the option to play the video and actually play it. Cool.
    Oh and great video by the way. That gives me some ideas. Thanks for sharing.

    Great post! I just stumbled upon your site. I am relatively new to affiliate marketing as I started by blog about a month ago. I am learning but its slow. It sure would be great to be able to work from home. I have signed up for a few affiliates and trying to get my name out there. Hope it will pay off in the end.

    You have a lot of great information here. I will need to keep reading
    Thanks

  • Astrid

    Eddy:

    You are the bomb. Brave and Bold that makes a typical New Yorker, you have a great sense of humor and tell it like it is. I have been following your site for over a year; I approach it with caution and suspicion. I have land two good paying jobs through your site and one that I would never recommend to anyone, they are the biggest A holes on earth.

    I definitely want to get involved with the affiliate marketing deal yet it has been one of those things. Everyday saying today I will do and never get it done. I have been using youdata.com, yet it does not pay very much,not even to cover monthly service for WA. The past 4 weeks I have been paid .84,.72, .15,.11

    Once again I want to say thanks for being so frank and honest with people, many have a hard time handling the truth without sugar coating and saying the “politically correct thing” and to those I say too bad. Deal with it.

    Keep up the great website and your hard work.

  • Veronica N.

    Happy Friday Everyone!!!

    Amen to that Astrid!!!

    Eddy always works hard to keep us informed with the latest news.
    Speaking of news no FRiday updates today Eddy? hehe!

    Anyhow Eddy I just received my check from http://www.inboxdollars.com very cool now I am a Gold member whoohoo!

    LOL

  • Astrid

    Boy o Boy Eddy; just traveling away these uh? I have to start doing what you do in order to enjoy those finer things in life. Beauty of it all you can vacation and still work because your office is just a click away.

    Keep up the great work and enjoy.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Astrid,

    Glad you can appreciate the lifestyle. Me and my wife always had a passion for traveling. When I was still slaving away for the man and get the occasional vacation he would throw my way, I would sit on the beach and imagine my life would be like this anytime i wanted. A year or two later I achieved that with a lot of hard work, positive mind set, tons more training and some God’s favor. So it goes to show that any Joe can achieve whatever lifestyle you dream of if you have some of those elements.

    By the way you’re right, I can work anywhere and I do. My wife finds it annoying sometimes because i never go anywhere without my Macbook Air. But she knows if I didn’t work as hard as I did, then we coudn’t play hard. And besides, talking to you good folks doesn’t feel like work most of time. lol Sometimes the occasional hater kills that feeling.

    In any event, glad I can inspire and I’ll continue to work hard.

  • http://www.surveyfavs.com Callie

    Viola … it works!

    Just surfin’ by with a ClixSense update: I took Eddy’s simple instructions (for how to run free ads), put the info to good use and it is paying off. I’m now already on ad number 3 … using only click credits (mine + downline’s). I’ve not paid a single cent for my ads. Yay!

    So c’mon people … I know there are others who have just as good news (maybe even better!) to share about ClixSense. ;)

    Thanks again Eddy!

    By the way … you’re gonna have to start bringing us back souvies from all these fantabulous vacations you’ve been taking. LOL

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    As always its great to hear from you. And as always Callie runs with my advice and is successful. But best of all you always come back and share the love to encourage others. I really appreciate that about you Callie.
    Its funny you mention souvenirs, that’s exactly why I don’t buy them. lol Family members and friends start catching feeling if you forget them. So now everyone gets an emailed picture of my trips. Ghetto I know. lol

    In any event, Thanks for sharing your experience Callie.

    By the way, Callie first started by taking surveys I recommended on my site and then went full force with it. She later decided to become the survey queen and started her on blog: http://www.SurveyFavs.com Callie is employed by traditional work at home jobs but she’s also making her money with non-traditional work at home opportunities. Why can’t that be you?

  • Letitia

    I tried it yesterday. I didn’t have to pay for the PTC ads either. Cool!
    Thanks Eddy,
    Letitia

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Letitia,

    Sounds good. Have you been getting referrals using the method listed above?

  • Letitia

    Well, no….LOL! I think I know what happened though I just did like a 111. I’ll try and do a bigger number next round like you did in the video. Also, I know that if it is something new, people have to see it around 7 times to join or buy anything.

    @Eddy Salomon:

    Thanks Eddy!

    It’s always my pleasure to share tidbits and nuggets of useful information whenever I can. Each time I do, my hope is that it will benefit many, but even if only one … hey, it’s still very much worth it!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Letitia,

    Yeah 100 visitors won’t get you a lot of conversions. 1000 or more do very well.
    I should probably point that out above.

  • melissa

    Hi Eddy,

    Well I have been searching for a few years of how to get a good handle on affiliate marketing. Unfortunately nothing is working. I have tried what you suggested and without investing in myself I am not seeing any results. To get any where with clixsense, you still need to pay the 10 dollars to get more clicks. I did manage to make 1.88 with youdata, but now i have logged in several times and there are no more ads displayed for me. I don’t know what I could be doing wrong. I am determined to get this up and running although after a few years of not making more then a few dollars I am starting to get discouraged. I have read almost everything that you have posted I really do enjoy your site and am glad that you have become so successful. Anyways, I am not quite sure what I am doing wrong apparently your baby steps are not baby enough for me lmao. I think I am just getting myself to frustrated right now……….breathe breathe breathe….ok i am good now ready for some advice :)

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Melissa,

    Thanks for contacting. Trust me I totally understand what you’re going through. I’ve been there and done that. But just keep in mind I’ve been at this for years. Success didn’t happen over night. My road to success involved a lot of failure, obstacles, discouragement, hate from others, etc. But I’ve learned that some of the most successful people in life have often traveled the same road. So guess what? You’re in good company. lol
    The difference between those who make it and those that don’t, is the ability to get up, brush your shoulders off and keep coming back for more. The fact you’ve earned some money online with YouData is more than most people can say for their work at home efforts. There are still tons of people out there that have spent months or even years trying to land that elusive traditional work at home job and haven’t earned a dime. At least you can say, you have. You have to focus on your little victories not your losses. Even if I lost $50 trying something but eventually made $5 back, I would relish in the victory. It meant hey, this stuff works. I just need to fine tune my efforts. Sure I’m down $45 but at least I know it works and I can make it work.

    So my advice is stop focusing on your failures. Focus on your victories. The biggest part of success that most people fail to discuss or realize is mind set. I’ve been doing this since I was in highschool. I had relative success since then. But it was within the last 2-3 years is where I reached my apex. Not surprisingly it was when I changed my mindset. I stopped thinking negatively and saying things like maybe, try, or hopefully. My vocabulary and thoughts were more affirmative. The book “The Secret” & a little old preacher name Joel Osteen helped me with that. I know for some people that’s corny or sounds like mojo. But I will tell you that changing my mindset was the key. Obviously you need to put action to it and invest in your learning. But some people who do that still fail because their mindset is just defeated. So start working on that.

    In terms of getting more money, why not try Amazon’s Turk program. There are some folks doing so great things with this recommendation:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/07/29/work-at-home-with-amazoncom/

    You’re not doing anything wrong with YouData.com they just don’t have enough advertisers for all the work at home seekers they now have. What I have found is you keep logging in different times a day, you can get some more ads. Keep clicking away at clixsense until you get the $10 to upgrade. Keep plugging away at the different ways I’ve showed you how to make money with. Eventually it will add up and help you move to the next level. Just don’t give up. Remember I was in the same place you were. I just didn’t give up.

    P.S. I also had a part time offline job to help ease the pain of not making money yet too. lol So you may want to add that to the mix.

    Hope this helps.

  • Letitia

    Hi Melissa,
    I feel your pain. Eddy’s right though. This profession is hard. I still haven’t made a sale through article marketing. Yet, I got my first referral to a work at home site the other day from networking on mylot. I have been doing this for 4 or 5 months and I was just able to upgrade on Clixsense last week. Eddy also recommended a good book “The Secret” I read it myself a few months ago. I am hoping to purchase it one day to keep in my private library. It’s a great book and it will help you think positive and help you change the way you look at the world and your current condition.
    Good luck,
    Letitia

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Letitia,

    Thanks for chiming in! I really appreciate it. I think it’s very important that this type of advice comes from each other because sometimes there is this misconception that I’m “special”. So thanks for sharing your experience Letitia. By the way, I totally agree with you about the secret, I was so impressed by it, I went and bought the dvd too which was great for a quick refreshing of my mindset. Because it’s so easy to fall back into the negative mindset. It really is amazing how that really impacts your life. You don’t realize it until you become aware of it. Again I know it all sounds like mojo, but trust me we’ve all experienced this stuff but never given it much attention.

    Hi Eddy, I’m looking into doing the wealthyaffiliate.com program. I kind of got started with the affiliate stuff through Google Profit Resources. I was hoping I could get your opinion on it. I wasn’t sure where else to ask about this….

    Indeed. But before joining WA be sure you read the following article:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/top10

    I don’t want anyone going into this career with any misguided expectations about how easy this will be. It’s those type of Google products that screw up the industry and have people
    jumping into this career not really understanding what’s involved. Hope it helps.

    Eddy

  • http://0to500.blog.com Amy C.

    I made my first attempt at this today. I bought a ClixSense ad. No new referrals, but I’ll try again in a few days. I also will try a different program and some different wording of the ads to see what works. How do I know if my ad is well written to attract people or not? Or is the ad not important, but the content of the site? Or is it more luck of the draw and hope a few of the people who click on your ad are interestedin that particular program on that particular day?

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi again Amy,

    What you experienced is common in any marketing. Sometimes you’ll hit them out the park and other times you’ll strike out. I just went through the same thing this past week with clixsense with some ads and programs I tried. But here’s some advice. Pick offers that you would actually try if the shoe was on the other foot. Look at their page like the user would. Do you see things that would turn you off. If so, then it’s probably going to turn off the people you’re trying to target.

    In terms of the ad copy, don’t just use what the company provides you. Use an ad that would appeal to you and reflects what the site is about. So to answer your question, everything is important. Your ad copy, the type of offer and their landing page (website) should all be good. At the very least the landing page should be attractive.

    But I’ll say it again some ads and offers will do better than others. That’s part of being a marketer. You just need to keep testing and adjusting until you find the ones that work for you.

    I hope this makes sense.

  • http://0to500.blog.com Amy C.

    That makes perfect sense. It is in line with what I was thinking. A lot of trial and error and getting the right person to the right site at the right time.

    Thanks again

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Exactly. It’s part of the process. It can be frustrating sometimes but when you do finally figure it out, it’s very rewarding.

  • http://www.twitter.com/milfl MRodz

    Eddie, I just joined the site and I think what you have created is genius! I have been doing research on work at home jobs for 2 months now and have not been able to find legitimate companies. I joined one in June 2009 an MLM company that I invested on which lead me to no residual income as they promised, I ended up spending out of pocket money every month for nothing. I was forced into signing up and only after I got the information about profits which turned out to be what is very common now on the web; “sponsoring people to your business”. There are tons of companies out doing the same thing, generating income by “sponsoring people” to join the company but they offer little training and ultimately if you don’t generate the leads you simply don’t make money yet you are stuck with the obligation of a monthly expense of $150, a membership of $299 a year, webhosting at $30 a month, going out convincing people about how good the “product” is for you in whichever creative way possible. Any insight on this online system biz structure?

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Thanks MRodz!

    Glad you appreciate the effort. Sorry to hear about your struggle with finding a legitimate work at home job. I’m not sure if you know about our companies page:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/companies , our work at home job leads that are posted every Friday: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/category/work-from-home-job-leads/ and my other site:
    http://www.workathomecareers.com They should help.

    In terms of the business you described, it just sounds like a pyramid scheme where it’s not really about the products or providing value. It’s about getting people to sign up under you so you make money off the fee they paid to get in. Again I’m not part of the business you’re referring to so I can’t say for sure. But the fact that they really wouldn’t tell you what the business is about unless you signed up is just shady. In any event, I hope this helps. Good luck.

    Oh my God! I’m crying! First off, Thanks for putting the audio for the antispam word. I’m a totally blind, and often gone to affiliate websites where they have the capcia letters, and I’m either forced to ask my husband, or leave the site because I can’t read it. I am a member of wealthy affiliate–trying my best to make the most out of the vast information. I’m also a member of Acme people search affiliate program. Why? Because it is extremely hard to get a job in this economy, especially with my disability. So I’m here. However, I have trouble navigating the visual aspects of affiliate marketing. That’s why I’m so greatful that SOMEBODY CARES! I also appreciate your list of resources for people with disabilities.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Alexandra,

    Thanks for chiming in. I’m happy I can do my little part to help ALL people. Definitely check out my work at home resource people with disabilities. It should definitely help you find something while you master your affiliate marketing career.

  • Astrid

    @MRodz:

    Sorry to hear you have not found a work at home job. There are many they hire in different fields and there are many sites which have links to the bigger companies. I cannot reiterate what Eddy and many other legitimate on line collaborators have said ” you should not pay for any legitimate work offer” the most you may be asked to pay is for background check and possible drug test however, I can tell you in 5 years working various work at home jobs as supplement to income, not once have I had to pay for anything , most recently I had to do fingerprint check and they even paid for that and the Fed-Ex to return application and fingerprint cards.

    I recommend to anyone to visit Eddy’s job postings, three months ago I got hired as an on line interpreter from a post Eddy had. I make decent pay for a JOB, I look forward to making more from my own ventures.

  • http://www.fapsservices.com Wayne

    Hello Eddy. Once again I must say you indeed do your home work quite well, if I may say! Just singed up with Clix Sense. The site is so easy to use and the navigation is laid out very well. It’s also wonderful that you have “Work At Home” jobs for those who have disabilities. Keep up the good work your doing too!

  • Luke Wootton

    YO Eddy!
    I read your latest on your site and i hope every one made it out of there from the storm. I have been doing all the sites recommended on your site and i wanted to express thanks. I have taken all of your info and turned it to some change and am taking the next step. I am signing up at wealthy affiliates tommorow and beggining my carrer as a Online affiliate and i just wanted to let you know that it wouldnt have been a reality if i have never found this site. Ill keep posting on here to let everyone know how it works for me. And to anyone whos new to the site reading this shut your mouth and open your eyes , this man has something to say ;).

    Thanx again Eddy
    Luke Wootton

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Damn Luke,

    You’re trying to get me emotional over here? lol Thanks for the support and love man. I really appreciate it.
    It does my heart good to hear that you’ve taken action and made some money. I already know that you’re trying to do big things and won’t let anything stop you from achieving your goals.
    So congrats on your decision to join WA. Truth be told you strike me as someone that would excel at any opportunity even if it weren’t affiliate marketing. So either way I know you’re bound for success. Keep at man. It’s this type of hunger and dedication that can change someone’s life. You already know what it’s done for me. So I’m looking forward to your progress.

    Thanks again.

    P.S. In terms of the storm, there are so many people without power around my way. It’s crazy. Con Edison is just overwhelmed with calls. The blizzard had already caused tons of damage but the wind storm took it to the next level. I’m very fortunate to have power. This type of stuff makes a brother want to invest in a generator. lol

  • Luke Wootton

    Eddy,

    I can attest to the need of a generator i was in Rita and Ike so I know what a month or two without power can be. Plus everyone and there momma had a generator so the noise every night can make you lose it. Just a few years ago now but i still remember being in the line for a warm plate and fresh water. But at the darkest of times that’s when the light seems to break through the clouds and you really see the love and support of your fellow man.

    Talk to you soon

    Luke

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Ain’t that the truth Luke! Amen.

  • Luke Wootton

    I’m sorry to post again but i just seen were you mentioned ” THE SECRET” . Ive read it and watched it and its kinda of amazing that i ended up here and keeping the positive on my mind.WEIRD!

    Luke

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Luke, you already know what the folks in the secret would argue. You put out in the world that you want something. And the “universe” (aka God) just lines things up to make it happen. But obviously there still needs to be the action taken by the individual to take advantage of the situation which is always have been expressed by the folks at the secret (You naysayers. lol). You could be as positive as you want mentally but without action it’s just a lot of warm fuzzy feeling inside. But you already know this. lol

  • Luke Wootton

    Couldn’t have said it better myself, without any action there can be no reaction. It dose not matter who puts you on your path it all depends on how you travel it. And with a little knowledge and alot of elbow grease a person can go as far as they want to. Just thankfully i found the knowledge before wasting my grease lol!

  • http://www.fapsservices.com Wayne

    Hello Luke, your so both so right about not taken action after giving the knowledge and training. If you’re every in need of some help at; “Wealthy Affiliate”, just look me up (aka K.Wayne) and I will do my best to help out.

    By the way Eddy; I want to thank you for the information in your other postings on, Clix Sense, Amazon Associates and Mechanical Turk. I started making money from the start. It may not be much but, it will add up. Going to use my earnings for Ad Campaigns.

    Thanks again for such a great review site. God bless all of your family too!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Amen Luke. lol

    Wayne,
    You’re welcome. It never gets tiring to hear when folks are taking action, making money and be thankful for it no matter how small it may be. I love the fact that you’re taking the money you’re making and re-investing it to make more money. I do that regularly and it pays! So applaud you. Keep up the good work and God bless you and your family as well.

  • Luke Wootton

    @Wayne:
    Thanks Wayne,
    I’m getting started at WA as we speak and its been a milestone today in the path that im on. From no more then a weeks worth of knowledge from Eddy’s site I have accumulated a $100.00 from all the sites i am on. I have also received my first payment from you data to my papal account. And the say it cant be done, HA!

    I will definitely look you up and i will probably have a tone of questions, you asked for it lol.

    Thanx again
    Luke

    Damn that’s amazing Luke!
    Great job!

  • LEB

    hey Eddy, trying to understand your video but not very informative… see it sounds like, yes you know what you’re talking about, but it doesn’t deliver too much information for someone who is completely new to any of this. I don’t understand how to make free money because you refer to reinvest what you make. I’m guessing, and we shouldn’t have to guess what you’re saying in the video or your responses here “did you read above, it’s all there”…. that you’re referring to affiliate. well, how does one make free money and cash out of the options you’ve listed?
    thanks and I write this with the utmost respect… just looking for clarification.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    LEB,

    There isn’t much more I can add then what I’ve already written in the article above and described in the video. Most of the people that have visited this page seem to have been very informed after reading it and watching the video. So I doubt I can add any more value than what’s listed above. Sorry.

  • http://www.fapsservices.com Wayne

    Hello LEB; have a suggestion for you, which is from my own experience. When a person reads an article or book for the first time, you don’t get much out of it. But; if you read it over several times, you get more information from it and learn something different each time you read it. Same thing goes with all the info. that Eddy has posted here. Even I, at times, need to re-read some of his post to get a more clearer understanding!

    Don’t feel like your the only person that has to do such either.

    Off the topic here Eddy but, I really need to ask this. You have been at the IM/AM business for some time. I have had a problem getting my Article submitted on Squidoo. My article is a review about WA. They told me; in an e-mail after I had wrote a dispute for the second time,

    Also my blog on blogger dot com has been suspending ALL of my articles for the same reason. I have had them post for a very long time and now BOOM their gone. What’s the deal?

  • http://www.fapsservices.com Wayne

    Sorry this part did not post. Tried something and did not work LOL. This is what Squidoo said in the e-mail they sent.

    Some topics just bring in more bad traffic than they’re worth to support. Unfortunately Wealthy Affiliate University has earned a pretty lousy reputation for spamming on the web.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Well said Wayne. Great advice.

    In terms of these external sites like Squidoo & Blogger, I couldn’t tell you much. If you read the terms and conditions of these sites it may shed some light. But in my experience posting articles on these sites leaves you at their mercy for better or worst. One minute they love affiliates and next they don’t because some idiot affiliate has abused their system. When a lot of affiliates do this it messes it up for good affiliates like yourself. So that’s why you don’t hear me talk about them that much. I always tell folks for all the effort you put on those external sites to get them ranked and viewed, you could do the same for your own site that you host and control. Not sure if that answers your question but I’m not an authority on squidoo or blogger. I’m more of an SEO guy that focuses driving traffic to sites I own and host. There are no surprises this way. ;)

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    No worries. lol
    It’s not WA spamming the web. It’s like I said earlier. There are affiliates that take training and abuse it. That’s in all facets of life. Scammers abuse TV with infomercials. Politicians abuse the system for their own gains. There are always some bad apples that take things that were meant for good and misuse them. WA teaches SEO and I learned to use that to get me in front of thousands of people to provide value while earning money. But I could have easily used it to scam people. But that’s not what I’m about. So I don’t think its fair to blame sites like WA. It’s really rogue affiliates that just abuse systems. That’s what’s also happening with Google Adwords and PPC. Affiliates misused it. Then companies react like children and bans us all even when we’re not the ones doing the bad things. It’s just mental laziness on their end. But from a business perspective it may just be easy to lump us all together rather than taking things by a case by case basis. It’s a tough situation on both ends.

  • http://www.fapsservices.com Wayne

    Yes, you have answered my question. In some way I had that thought that it was not all me. Thank you again for the great advice in, using my efforts and too be more focused on SEO for my website. I just thought if I could write a good article, it would help, somewhat, in that area.

    Also I need to quit taken on so much with Marketing Programs. Since I have started, I now have well over 20 different Affiliate Programs that I have promoting. I just need to get back to the basic and slow down some. If that makes any since!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Glad I answered your question Wayne. You’re quite welcome. I really doubt it’s something you did. I’m more inclined to think this is a knee jerk reaction by some of those companies because the activity of the lazy affiliates. I definitely think you’re better off focusing on activities that you control which is your site and driving traffic to it. Save your good articles for your own site. That’s what I do. I don’t give my best content to sites I don’t control.

    You definitely need to get focused. Everyday there is some new system that pops up claiming to have the answer. But you just end up running around like a chicken with no head. You never learn to master anything. Trust me I’ve been there. I discussed this in my WA review. I don’t care what training you’re using. If it’s decent, try to get the most out of it and focus on one technique until you master it. Ignore all the distractions and noise. One of the things I’ve done to help me focus is unsubscribe from tons of “guru” list. I’m only on a handful of list now from folks that I know provide consistent value and don’t email me new crap to buy every day.

    So definitely get disciplined. It will eventually pay off. It’s just a game of patience and numbers. Hope this advice helps.

  • LEB

    Hi Eddy,
    In regards to step 5., above re joining affiliate programs, you mention that one is provided with a free website… exactly which programs are you referring to? So far, I have zero that offer a website. Please clarify?
    thank you

  • LEB

    oh and by the way… thank you for this website… I have read a lot; over and over again and though I haven’t signed up for anything as far as affiliate (because i have to read everything a hundred times before spending any money), I know I am in the right path and do appreciate your website very much for it is helping me take the plung !

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey LEB,

    Okay I can see where you may be getting confused. I’m not sure if you watched the video listed above. But did you see when I went to hits4pay, and headed to their affiliate or referral section and copied that website address to use in my clixsense ad? That website address aka url is what I meant by free website. When you’re an affiliate or a member of sites like Hits4pay, youdata, etc they have referral programs where they provide you with a url that is specific to you. This is basically just an exact copy of their website but it some code in the address that lets the parent company know if someone signs up from this cloned site, LEB should get credit for it.

    What you may have been thinking is that these companies are giving you a site like mine where I can control the content, look and feel and the links I put on it. No that’s not the case when you work as an affiliate for a company. They’re just giving you a copy of their site that they can track back to you. Then you’re basically expected to promote this link on your own website, blog (if you have one) or via a method like I showed in the video above.

    If you want to get your own site then you can go to a site like blogger.com (free) or invest in a domain name (.com) and hosting so you can upload your own website with the type of pages and content you want. But that’s a bit more advanced. I wouldn’t neccessarily consider investing a domain name and hosting until you figure out what niche (stuff you plan to discuss or industry) you want to be in. Blogger.com may be a good starting point to mess around in. The guide above was just showing you a simple way to make some money with current legitimate programs many of us have already been making money with. It was sort of an exercise of leverage. So hopefully this makes more sense to you now.

    By the way, most of the recommended programs listed on this site don’t cost you a dime buddy. So don’t be afraid to jump in. Otherwise you’ll just get a case of over-analysis paralysis. It’s great to be cautious in reason. But you don’t want it to get to the point where you’re over thinking something so much that you don’t act. Been there and done that. It doesn’t make you money. Even now I still have to remind myself not to do it. So I understand where you’re coming from. But you don’t neccessarily need to focus on this affiliate marketing stuff. You can just do some of the opportunities as is without referring anyone and making money that way. You have options. Don’t get fixated on this too much if it’s leading to inaction. Take care.

  • LEB

    THAAAANKKK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU. that’s exactly where I’m at… overthinking and not producing. I am out of work and have no idea how I’m going to make it in two weeks, but I am getting a better idea now to get something going as opposed to nothing.
    Again, THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUU

  • http://www.fapsservices.com Wayne

    Your soooo right Eddy when you stated; {But you don’t want it to get to the point where you’re over thinking something so much that you don’t act}.

    It sure is goo that you said that as a reminder, not just for me, but for everyone else that reads these postings. Also, it’s great to have all the information that you give and encouragement. Man…sure wish I had started this kind of business long time back.

    Note to LEB….By all “MEANS” try not to take on to much. All the training and techniques in the “Marketing Business” is overwhelming enough like it is. Don’t take on any more than you can handle. I say that cause, as you read this, it’s right were I’m at today. Going to cut off some of that fat too. (LOL)

    And Eddy, love you man. You have, not only have a good out look on things, but a wonderful person and great helper!

  • LEB

    ok… another question and thank you for your continued patience to me as a newby. My question is with respect to Wealthy Affiliate University aka Wealthy Affiliate Platinum. I see that you’re a big fan. I have done research and research and then some more research. I do like how I could cancel membership anytime with WA, no fees, etc… however, one thing stands out to me… why are there no last names to Kyle and Carson… do you find this odd? I want to eventually become a super affiliate and ensure that the money I DO NOT have will go towards valuable use.
    Thank you,
    Lissette…

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    LEB,

    You’re welcome. I kind of gathered you were in a holding pattern based on your line of questioning. At this point you need to be proactive. If you’re worried about getting scammed or losing money just focused on the opportunities that don’t cost you a dime. Don’t spend so much energy trying to figure this internet marketing stuff out. It’s not going anywhere and will be here when you’re in more stablized financial situation. I’ve given you more than enough to work with on this site outside of this marketing stuff.

    In terms of your question regarding the last name thing, yes I found it weird too. I also thought the Wealthy Affiliate name was cheesy. But I looked passed all that stuff because they were recommended to me by someone I trusted and my research showed nothing but praise for what they offer. At the end of the day I don’t know the last name of the guy that I pay to do my dry cleaning. All I do know is that they have a store that everyone visits and that my clothes usually come back clean. Like I said before it’s good to be cautious and you should always do your research. But you can’t over analyze everything. If something isn’t sitting right with you about WA or any other company, just keep it moving on to another one that does sit right with you. There are too many options out there to be consuming so much energy analyzing a given opportunity. Considering your current situation, I definitely encourage you to focus your energy on the other free opportunities that can make you money now. Maybe you’ll land something that covers all your expenses and you won’t even need to consider this marketing option. But that will become clear when you take action on something. So try to get started on that Lissette. Trust me, you’ll get more results that way.

    Wayne,
    Amen brother. I’m glad there was a reason for me to reiterate that important point. I can’t tell you how many people fall into that trap of over thinking. I understand it has a lot to do with past experiences and just pure fear. But it’s something that has to be tamed right away. Otherwise it just leads to complacency or more of the stuff that folks have been getting for years. If you’re happy with that then continue to do what you’ve always been doing. But you can’t talk about wanting change if you’re following the same action or lack of it.

    In any event, thanks for the love Wayne. I’m just trying to share the knowledge and positivity that I’ve been fortunate enough to be blessed with. It just feels good to know folks are receptive to it and taking action because of it. So thanks!

  • Luke Wootton

    As a member of WA for a few weeks now, you would be very sorry if you didn’t take this course. If you are just getting started like i was it really is the only way to go. Every one promises money when all you really get is ripped off, these guys on the other hand tell you that you will get what you put in. So far that statement falls true and i couldn’t be happier to be a part of WA.

    And a quick shout to my friend Eddy, i have been very busy i pulled a 15 hour day yesterday and man am i beat. Sry its been a while since i dropped a line but like i said, you get what you put into it!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Luke,

    Thanks for chiming in. Dude, I admire the dedication and hours you’re putting in. But please make sure you give yourself some breaks. Otherwise you get burned out and this stuff becomes nothing more than mush. When I first got started in this industry. I would literally go days on 3-5 hours of sleep per night because I was trying to devour as much information as I could find. Back then there weren’t sites like WA. And if there were I was a dumb ass and never decided to invest in my learning. In any event, sometimes I would read a concept and it wouldn’t sink in. So I would leave my computer a lone for a couple of days, then come back with a fresh set of eyes. I would read the same concept again and bingo it made total sense. I’m not sure if you’ve gone through that yet. But just be mindful of giving yourself a break otherwise you’ll miss things or it becomes a bit confusing.

    I just don’t want you to be burnt out before you even get started. lol But keep up the hard work because you already know it will pay off.

  • Luke Wootton

    More kind words from the no scams sage, you are rite Eddy.All work and no play make jack a dull boy, so today i just sat back and watched my stats. You really are a good friend in all this Eddy. like i said before, i really wouldn’t have believed it because most of every site you see is faker then Dolly Parton. I will always remember my roots in this and ill be thinking about that when my first checks come in. You have my recommendation to any one, that’s why i dropped you spot in WA page.

    L8R
    Luke

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    LMAO, “Faker than Dolly Parton.”,
    Damn you Luke. I was laughing so hard some spit flew out my mouth. Good looking out for the WA gold. It’s not necessary but I appreciate the action. More importantly I appreciate that you trust enough in a brother that you would recommend me to others. So thanks for the love and support Luke! (and the laugh. lol) Keep doing your thing because I do look forward to hearing about those first checks.

  • Luke Wootton

    @Eddy Salomon:
    You liked the dolly thing huh lol, must be a Texas thing. I just upgraded my clix sense account , your welcome for the two bucks lol. better scoot over at the top Eddy looks coming to town. im going to make no scams.net jkjk lol

    NO SCAMS 4 LIFE!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    I just know it was a hilarious metaphor. lol Thanks for the clixsense upgrade, every cent still counts to me even at this level of my career.
    By the way, the great thing about the internet is there is plenty room up on the top. So feel free to make your way up there. I don’t know if I’m up there quite yet, but I hear the view is quite nice there. lol

  • http://affiliate-rocks.blogspot.com Julius Orias

    Hi Eddy, thanks for the great info. here about making money for FREE. I started clixsense not long ago and I already making some money just for clicking the ads. Maybe you can add this free program on your next post too about Neobux and it does the same thing you will get paid just for clicking ads.

    To your success,
    Julius Orias

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Julius,
    You’re welcome. I was a member of Neobux and had planed to introduce it as an option here a while ago. But I found it less straightforward than clixsense with all the rental of referrals stuff and all the paid upgrades. I did actually make money with them. But eventually they had dropped off my radar and I forgot to log in for a while. Then when I did finally remember to log in, my account was disabled and all the money I had invested and made was gone. That pretty much pissed me off especially because they never sent me an email stating that I should login soon or my account would be disabled which is what most of the other legitimate PTC sites though. So that left a bad taste in my mouth even though that was probably my mistake. But when I consider that and their convoluted rental system and the several up-sell membership options, I decided against recommending them.. But I do know folks are doing well with it and it’s not a scam.

  • Luke Wootton

    I agree Eddy they just dont have the pull as do other sites i have seen. What do you think about cash crate?

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Don’t get me wrong, NeoBux is a pretty big company with a lot of users that are very happy. So I don’t want that to be misrepresented. I just don’t mess with them anymore because of the reasons listed above. I still think there is value there for others. In terms of cash crate, they’re basically exactly like fusion cash:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2007/08/27/is-fusion-cash-fusioncashcom-a-scam/

    As long as you follow the tips of being organized, reading the terms of conditions of the offers you do, you’ll make money at cash rate, fusion cash or any other legitimate get paid offer site. But I encourage you to read the tips I’ve listed on my fusion cash article because it pretty much applies to all these sites.

  • http://scamfreemoneyonline.weebly.com/online-money-making-links.html Tiff

    I have had luck with both Fusion Cash (awaiting my first cash-out now) and just sighed up with CashCrate yesterday and so far, so good!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Both are great companies. Get paid to offers are wonderful if you’re organized and read the fine print. Most of the time when I have heard people complain about them is because they failed to keep this in mind. I don’t know if you read my article with these tips before starting with these companies, but it’s worth a read either way:

  • Cathy

    Once again I’ll chime in on this. I haven’t taken action on WF. I have however done this since taking this site seriously: I’ve made about $10, paid to my Pay Pal account. I’m halfway to a $10 payout from clixsence. I’ve got a few bucks on Mturk. But today I’ve gotten an offer to pay me $60 for 45 min of my time, over the phone in the comfort of my own home. Infoco wants to know my opinion about my anti-virus software! I want to do more but….. I’ve also learned that during the time I didn’t take this site seriously I learned an immense amount about staying safe while surfing. I’m 53. most of my friends and family have an unhealthy fear of the internet. I yearn to learn and make money. Thanks Eddy. By the way folks, pay attention to this site. It pays, literally! Next on my to do list is to take $10 and upgrade my clixsense to premium, referrals or no referrals.

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Congrats Cathy. You’re a shinning example of what happens when you take action. I find there are a lot of people of various ages that are terrified of technology. But what they don’t realize is that anything can be learn when necessity requires it. None of us were born knowing how to talk, walk, do our jobs, etc. But we all learned because it was a necessity. If people viewed technology in the same way, I’m confident they can learn it just like they learned everything else in their lives. Unfortunately there is too much of “excuse-ism” going around. It’s a nasty disease. But you showed it can be conquered. Hopefully your immunity will be passed down to others reading this. lol

    Keep up the action!

  • Jonathan

    Hello, Eddy.. I’m from the Philippines, I have just stumbled here in your site by clicking BBB..And I saw what you had been saying about those scammers you had encountered.. cause you had also been victimized by them..That’s what I’m afraid of, but I had been enlightened by your video, that you are also a member of clixsense, and how you are making a huge profit out of it. and through affiliate..Hope you can help me to learn more about the techniques you are using so I can grow with this kind of business..
    Thanks and more power..

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Jonathan,
    I’m happy to hear you’ve learned a lot from my scam video. Hopefully now you’re in a better place to avoid all the scams out there.
    Good luck and take care.

  • http://donnycashOMG.blogspot.com DonnyCash

    Hey Eddy! First of all I wanted to say thankyou again for all the helpfull info you are providing! I’ve been doing a little research for a while about “work from home” related info and i really have to say your sites are a nice breath of fresh air to all the “get rich quick” and scam sites out there! I’ve tried some of your non-traditional online job recomendations and have had some fun and have even earned a few bucks! Now im starting to try some affiliate marketing and this is where my question comes in. I’ve signed up with an affiliate network and found some interesting products to promote and was wondering your opinion or if you had any insight on taking these links and posting them in online classified sites I’ve been using some sites that are free to post to and I was wondering what your take on free classified sites is. Do you think these sites have potential to generate any leads or are these sites just good for practice and to go to sites where you have to pay to post ads? Any insight would be appreciated and thanks again for all you wonderful information. You rock!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    DonnyCash,

    Thanks for the kind words. I really appreciate it. I’m glad you’ve taken action on the non-traditional opportunities and have made some money.
    In any event, when I first got in this industry I did a lot of my marketing in online classifieds. In the early days of the internet it was a great place to be and easy to get conversions. It’s definitely changed since then. But from what I hear some people still do well with it. But personally I just don’t find it as effective as applying SEO which obviously I learned really well by investing in online
    courses like WA and why when you search for work at home and other related keywords both of my sites show up. I find that’s a better way to target people because they”re constantly coming to you and you’re reaching far more people than you would on classifieds. Either way it’s worth a shot. But eventually I would step up to SEO or paying for advertisements on sites that target your audience. My preference is SEO over paid methods because it’s “free” after you’ve done the initial work. PPC (Pay Per Click) is great if you have the right training and know what you’re doing but it’s not something I really suggest for newbies. If you’re on a budget try anything free you can think of to get some seed money. But then invest that seed money in some training so you can step up to the bigger and better techniques that allow you to reach a larger audience.

    I hope this makes sense. Good luck.

  • http://donnycashOMG.blogspot.com DonnyCash

    @Eddy Salomon:
    Wow thanks for getting back to me so fast Eddy. Yeah that does make sense to me. I know you have to invest your time and effort into this. Heck I didn’t even have internet access last month, but over the last 30 days just by using a few of your non-traditional job ideas ive managed to earn a few bucks, ive tried my hand at blogging (which I know, SEO right?) lol, placed a couple affiliate ads and ive done it all for free so far. Like i said last month I had no clue what SEO PPC CPA… etc etc were. Heck its still confusing.. But at least im trying and thats the important part your gonna have to try something to make money right? Some of it might not work and im guessing Im probably gonna try a lot of stuff that doesnt work, but I will learn from it and hopefully like you said I can generate some seed money to invest in a program like Wealthy Affiliate. But until then (which is hopfully sooner rather than later) Im gonna keep doing everything I can think of to make some money online!! Your sites have been very helpful. I hope you dont mind if I comment and ask your opinion once in a while! Thanks Again!

  • Viki

    Eddy, you sure are an inspiration!! I came onto this site about a month ago and have already put some of your advice to use. Have received payment from YouData, made over $50 on Amazon Mechanical Turk, also signed up for Hits4Pay and have been making money off of surveys for years. I’m getting ready to take the next plunge into WA! I have a commercial embroidery business that I do part time from home so ,I’ve been earning more money while my machine is running. What a bonus! Turning 50 last month was a real eye opener. Holy crap where did the time go? And, I guess it’s time to decide what I wanna be when I grow up, LOL. So here I sit reading your blogs, getting educated and laughing my butt off at the same time. I guess I can relate to your humor because I am originally from Queens. You manage to get your point across without all the hype and I appreciate that. I find myself coming back to read your blogs over and over again. Keep up the great work and Thanks Again!

  • http://www.workathomecareers.com Eddy Salomon

    Viki,
    It’s always great to hear from people that are taking action instead of complaining about not being able to make money online. So thanks for sharing your success with me. It just goes to show when people read and act on this information it actually pays off. You just need to have an open mind. Obviously you do! Glad you can get my humor. It totally makes sense why you can probably appreciate it. lol
    In any event, thanks for the kind words and the continued support. I really appreciate it. Keep taking action and compounding on your success!

  • william

    thanks man im going to really do what you said i new to this but i really cant get a job. i’m new to a lot like blogging and twitter i just haven’t looked into these things but i want to learn everything

  • Kristophunk

    Eddy,
    I just finished watching your video and I am going to apply what you said to do. I have to admit that I am a little bit skeptical of all this work from home stuff. I have always heard bad things about it and that they were all just scams, but I came across this yesterday and everything I’ve read seems to be legit. It totally makes sense to me that I need to invest in this if I want to be successful at it. Thank you for taking the time out to help your fellow man, I was really impressed by that.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Kris,

    I’m glad you’re actually reading the information with an open mind despite what everyone has told you about this industry. The fact of the matter is they’re right for the most part. There are more scams than there are legitimate options. To the untrained eye it would lead you to believe this whole industry is a fraud.

    But for those of us that know how to do our research, you quickly learn there are a lot of legitimate ways to make money online. It’s just a matter of having the proper guidance and resources. Fortunately for you, you have found this site.

    I’m confident as you read it, you’ll see a world of possibilities your peers weren’t aware of.
    Keep in mind that even as you take action on some of these legitimate options, your family and friends still won’t be swayed. I actually wrote an article about this here:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2010/07/27/blood-work-at-home-dreams-dont-mix/

    But don’t let them stop you from pursuing your dreams of working at home. I certainly didn’t and it’s changed my life. As long as you do your research, you’ll be fine. We’ve equipped you to do this with the video on my scam page:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams so be sure to watch it and read the other scams and comments listed on that page. People that are educated on scams can easily avoid them.

    With that in mind I’ve done a lot of the hard lifting for you. I’ve listed some of my personal favorites here:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations

    We also list pre-screened job leads here:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/jobs they’re updated daily.

    You might also want to check out my work at home guide:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/workathomeguide

    I’m confident after going through this material you’ll be making money and avoiding scams. Keep reading, doing your research and taking action. If you do you’ll find the succes I and many others have experienced. Then one day your naysayers will be asking you for advice. lol

  • Joe

    Hey Eddy. After reading this page (and I’ve been watching your site for a while now) I was wondering about the possibilities you discussed about combining various resources. Would Affiliate Marketing work well in promoting one’s business as a Virtual Assistant? Or perhaps would it work in promoting any other freelance portfolio or even youtube videos? I know the last one was a bit out there, but since the possibilities for the internet is pretty vast, I’m wondering if the same goes for Affiliate Marketing. Can’t help being curious about it. Thanks in advance and I hope your Holiday (if you celebrate any of them) was a marvelous one.

    Joe

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Joe,

    Internet marketing can be used to promote any business that is seeking to reach more customers. The only difference with affiliate marketing is that we’re promoting other people’s product. But if you have your own product and business then yes it only makes sense you can use the techniques for your business as well. At the end of the day marketing is about connecting people that have a need with providers. The only difference here is we’re using the internet instead of newspapers, radio or tv. Hope this makes sense.

    Merry Christmast to you as well!

  • Tyrian (teer-ree-en)

    I am so glad I found this site! I am ready to get started. I have done mlm’s & network marketing for 10 years and 10 different businesses and now I am finally seeing that those were all pyramid schemes! With those, you don’t really make money if you aren’t recruiting and if your downline isn’t recruiting then you are just stuck! I’m signing up for these 3 sites today and I will sign up for the Amazon turk programs today also! I’m not ready for the WA as of yet but can’t wait until I am able to do that and gain more knowledge! I have searched for a way to do typing online for years and years and years and years and years and years and years and YEARS!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now finally I believe I will be able to do some typing jobs online along with the affiliate & turk programs! Thank you so very much and I am a fan of Joel Osteen also!! I love the WORD of God and if people would dig deeper, they will find that many things in the Bible are parallel and in agreement with “The Secret”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks Eddy I will keep everyone posted on my success at least twice monthly if that’s okay with you!!! Let me get my FEET WET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!

  • http://pointcopyprofitreview.wordpress.com/ Donny

    Eddy, Great info!

    You are right affiliate marketing is not a get rich quick thing. It takes hard work and some insight into what needs to be done. I believe that Wealthy Affiliate does a great job of providing that as well as giving someone new to the field a good starting off point!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Donny,

    Thanks. Glad you agree.

  • Margarete

    Is anybody really making a living with this? It sounds intriguing – anybody?

  • http://myspace.com/shamikasoflyy Ms. Moore

    Hi, Eddy! Your free crash course on affiliate marketing made me aware of the possibilities of making real money online. I studied this page thoroughly for a few weeks before making a move lol. I trust your insight on things and feel confident that if you’ve recommended it then it’s legit. I’ve signed up for a few sites under your sponsorship (PGS28) and just want to say thank you for sharing your experiences and knowledge with us. Happy 2011!!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Ms. Moore,
    Thanks for the kind words. It’s great to hear you’re taking action. I hope you find a lot of success. Have a great 2011 as well!

    I’m confident with your attitude and taking action this will be a great year for you. Thanks for the kind words and wishes. I appreciate them!

  • Isaac M.

    Hey there bro,
    one quick question, how can someone possible make money viewing ad’s that are only paying .01 cents?
    you would have to view a video for 30 secs to earn a penny? In that case you would have to watch 200(30 sec) videos to earn $2.00, which in turn would take you about 3 hours and 20 minutes to earn that $2.
    I know there must be a better way to earn more than that?

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    You’ve already answered your own question. As I said in the review and many comments this is NOT meant to live off. It’s just extra money to have in addition to other multiple streams of income.

    Right now you’re viewing ads on websites all the time and getting paid nothing. In fact you’re probably making some of these sites money when you click on them or take action. Isn’t it better that you make some of that money? If that doesn’t make “cents” to you then this is just something to ignore.

    Focus on a traditional work at home job like the ones we list daily here:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/jobs where you get paid hourly. However keep in mind it can take months to land a job. Seems like it only make “cents” to make some money for things you already do while trying to land a job than make none at all. Most of us already waste tons of times online using facebook, watching videos, etc and not making a dime for doing it.

    I don’t know about you but I’ll always prefer making some money for things I already do for free then not. But I tend to see things differently than most. Good luck to you.

  • Kamal Mohdisa

    Hi Eddy,
    I like your article and make me believing of the affiliate program. I have sign up some of your recommendation of sight and hope it will worth something to me.Thanks.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Glad you like it. Affiliate marketing is a great business for anyone willing to learn, work hard and take action. I’m confident my recommendations is worth it to anyone willing to take action. I hope it works out for you. Good luck.

  • http://noscam-onlinejobs.blogspot.com Jeremy

    Hey Eddy,
    I just found your blog by looking for legit online jobs and I’m amazed at your good job building this site. I was very inspired by you and decided to try my luck with Affiliate Marketing !

    I got a little question though, from the video above, reinvesting the money from ClixSense into ad credits. And then marketing another website. Will it work? because I think people on ClixSense just click on the links to get the money and they don’t really care what’s inside it?

    have you ever got referrals by this method?

    Thanks for everything !

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Jeremy,

    Thanks for the kind words. You’re right most of us on Clixsense rarely pay attention the ads. Most of them are questionable. But you’d be surprised if you have a good offer it does convert there. I and my other colleagues have had success advertising there. It just needs to be related to making money at home.

  • http://noscam-onlinejobs.blogspot.com Jeremy

    Wooo, Thanks a lot Eddy ! I actually got my first referral using this method !
    Thanks again =)

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Congrats Man! Told you it works.

  • Josemontero2010

    Hey Eddy,
    I am very inspired by your website, that I am going to give the things you recommend a try. I myself make almost 6 figures in the job market, but I am tired of the long hrs and little time with my family. I want to give it up for a work at home type of deal. Don’t worry I already know success doesn’t come overnight, so I am not looking at this as a get rich quick thing. My God bless you for blessing others all the days of your life!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Jose,
    Thanks for the kind words. I’m glad you feel inspired to try to do your own thing. Obviously as someone that has worked for the man most of my life I can totally relate. When you’re moving up at a job or career, time with your family is often the first thing that is sacrificed which makes little sense. Because most of us are trying to move up so we can afford to provide our family more in terms of material and quality time.

    It sounds like you understand the challenge before you. I imagine since you’ve done well at your job you can apply the same worth ethic and even more for your own business. I wish you the best in that endeavor. If I can do it, I’m sure you can too.

    May God bless you as well! Thanks again.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    You’re quite welcome Tomeka!
    It’s great to see when people are able to move past being scammed and still push forward in this industry. Too often people get jaded or end up giving up after such a bad experience.

    So I applaud you for being able to working through it. You’re absolutely right about taking destiny into your own hands. At this point no one should be looking to others to save them. We’ve all seen the only people that get saved are big corporations. The internet allows us to save our selves. So I’m happy you see that way and have taken action. Thanks for sharing. Your comment made my day!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hey Ray,

    You’re quite welcome. I’m glad that despite being scammed several times, you didn’t give up on your dream. But I’m more happy that you found this site and now see there are various legitimate ways to make money at home. It’s just a matter of finding the right resource to guide you to them.

    In terms of your question, as you see i’ve specifically recommended WA as my top pick for learning affiliate marketing. I’m assuming you haven’t actually read my review because it answers a lot of the questions you asked. I am a member and I learned a lot of what I know from WA so thats why I actually recommend it to others. I’m very careful about what I personally recommend. As you read my blog you’ll see that most of the time when i recommend something it’s because I have tried it myself or researched it. I don’t personally recommend opportunities merely for the commissions. But you’ll see that as you read my blog: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations

    In any event, when you take the time to read my WA review you’ll see that I’m more interested in making sure that people have a realistic expectation as to what you’ll get from WA. But again take the time to read the review. I think it will help you better decide if this is for you or not.

    Just keep in mind that affiliate marketing is a business. So it means you probably won’t see money right away like most new businesses. It’s long hours that are initially unpaid. But eventually it does pay off for people that can afford to have delayed gratification.

    Hope this helps.

  • Pete

    Good work Eddy. I too have gotten scammed several times by work at home “opportunities.” The good news is that I came across your site about about 6 months ago and decided that affiliate marketing was the best bet. I decided to build a website for credit card affiliate marketing after doing some research. The set-up costs were low and the commissions are such that I’m slowly starting to make money. This month I’ve already made over $200 profit. I know that isn’t that much but I can see the potential is there. Thanks again for your site as you seem to be quite knowledgeable so maybe you can help me out. I’m working with Affiliate Lease for my website and Nationwide Card Services for the affiliate network. I was wondering if you have any idea if it is possible to deal with the banks directly. If so how do I go about doing this? I’m pleased with the support I am receiving from both companies but was wondering if I could somehow bypass the middle man. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Thanks Pete. I really appreciate you coming back and sharing your success with me. People rarely do. So thanks for doing that. I’m very proud that you are now seeing the fruits of your labor with this affiliate marketing business. I’m glad you didn’t give up when things got tough. In terms of your question some credit card companies have affiliate programs on cj.com or some other affiliate network. So that might be a way to cut the middle man out. It’s not really my niche so I don’t really have much information to give you. But at the end of the day you’re making money with this business and that;s great. Keep at it and thanks for making my day by sharing your success!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Caroline,
    I’ve had similar experiences with facebook and even some articles I’ve written here. Don’t let it shake your confidence. It happens. My spelling and grammar are awful. But what I’ve discovered is that most people are forgiving when it comes to that stuff. This is assuming you can still provide them some type of value in terms of education, entertainment, etc. You as an english major probably write perfectly. So it’s not your writing.

    You should try putting up a website and getting your feet wet out there. I tend to get a lot more comments here on my blog than facebook. People are in different mindset at FB so that could be part of the reason you don’t see a lot of feedback.

    In any event, I say give creating a website a shot. As always make sure you get the proper training otherwise you’ll be creating a website that no one can find and means you won’t get any interaction. So be sure to get the training so you know how to get visitors otherwise you’re dead in the water and one of the million websites out there that no one knows about.

    Hope this helps.

    Have a Happy Easter too!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    You’re welcome Wright. I’m glad you have found value in this. I’m also very proud to hear that you’ve decided to take matters in your hand and start your own business. Keep at it!
    Thanks for sharing.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    That’s not true. They just changed the interface around. Just email them directly and they can walk you through how to do it.

  • Tomahawkeer

    Ok, it appears that you have to have $1.00 in your account before you can purchase ads. That makes a little more sense I guess, just the interface does not say that I can do it, at least until I have earned my $1.00

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Yeah that makes total sense.

  • http://twitter.com/tucky1970 Corissa Hudson

    I’m getting the hang of all this now thanks to you!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Great to hear. Keep it up!

  • Tomahawkeer

    Eddy, what is your opinion on using Affilate Marking, as more of a do at home part time business, basically to make some extra cash on the side of your normal job? Im interested in it a little, but obviously I cannot quit my day job, and I have no marketing or sales experience

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Tom, I started my affiliate marketing career on a part time basis while I had a full time job. I would NEVER tell anyone to quit their job and give up a steady check for a chance at a successful business. I’m very risk adversed. I always argue have another source of income that covers your bills while trying to get involved in a side business. This way you can focus on the business without worrying you’ll lose the shirt off your back.

    So yes affiliate marketing can be worked part time as I’m living proof of it. Worst case scenario, you fail and lose a bit of money and time. But you don’t lose everything. Best case scenario you become blessed like me and give your full time job a pink slip because your part time business becomes more profitable than working for the man.

    And I guess a middle scenario is that you make a little extra money on the side as you keep your full time job. I was in this scenario for a while before I learned the skills to put me in the best case scenario. So you do have options. Most home based businesses are flexible enough that you can juggle other things. That’s one of the many advantages. If you tried to do that with a brick and mortar business it wouldn’t work. But you have a lot more flexibility with a home based business.

    Hope this long drawn out answer was helpful.

  • Tomahawkeer

    My plan is to actually do what you said, and use only the cash that im currently earning online through clixsense, hits4pay, mturk, and mysurvey, to pay for what ever else I may need to being doing this, and hopefully use little, if any cash out of pocket to do it. MTurk has yielded me the most cash so far, but still not able to pay for WA just yet.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Well that’s a good plan. Actually what you’re suggesting is what a lot of people I know who can’t afford the membership fee do. It just makes cents to re-invest the money you earn from these other opportunities into some education that can help you make more money. So you’re on the right path.

  • Tiffany

    Just wanted to say, I have searched for online opportunities in the past. I found nothing but scams. This time, I somehow ran across your site. It is sooo refreshing to see an objective site with useful information!! Thanks again

    You’re welcome Tiffany! Glad you found us too!

  • Everett

    I have been doing a lot of research on my own to find a program that will help me learn about internet marketing and start to make a little money.  I’m a college student just trying to earn some money on the side and see where internet marketing might eventually be able to take me.  I don’t have a need to make money right away, so I’m really looking for a program that can slowly give me a firm understanding of internet marketing.  The two programs that I keep coming across are wealthy affiliate and the shoemoney system.  What insights can you give me on your opinion on the shoemoney home system.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    I stand by my recommendation of WA. I tried shoemoney System and although I do like the videos that was about it.

     Hi Eddy,
    I just wanted to stop by one of my favorite sites and give you a big Thank You! I joined Wealthy Affiliate about 2 weeks ago now and it is wonderful! I have you to thank for it as I had seen it on here every time I came to search new job postings but never thought I could do anything like that. I have been a long time follwer and trust you 100% so I decided to go with it and now I just wanted to thank you. You are a very special person as not many people would take the time you do trying to help others support their families. Your a real angel! Take Care and much success to you, you really deserve it!

    Hey Eddy, im a stay at home dad, while my wife works and we have a 1 year old child. I came across your website and seen your reviews of No Scam websites such as WA. Thanks for this info, as we barley make rent every month, and barley get though the month on diapers for our child. I just don’t want to fall in those “Scam” sites such like Anthony’s Profits From Home and ext.. Thanks for this info! I look forward of reading more about your site!

    Welcome fellow stay at home Dad! I’m glad you found our little site. You’re quite welcome for the information buddy. I hate to hear you’ve been scammed but it’s a battle scar that most of us have but have learned from. The fact you’re on this site is a testament to that. My suggestion is to start on the following pages:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/workathomeguide

    It has everything you need to succeed. It’s just a matter of reading and taking action on anything that appeals to you. I’m confident you’ll be making money very soon after. Keep me posted buddy. Take care.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Yep and I’m a living testament of that. But most people don’t have the delayed gratification or work ethic to make this work. Folks tend to have 9-5 mindset and that’s why they can’t succeed with a business like this. That’s fine though. Not everyone was meant to be a boss.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Judi,
    You’re far too kind. The biggest thing to success is taking action. Too often people just read, over analyze and never take action. That just leads to more of whatever they’ve alway gotten in life. But to be successful you have to be able to get over your fear and take a leap. The only reason most of the top people are successful is not because they’re not afraid. It’s because they act despite their fears. They’re also serial failures but the difference between them and the rest of the population is they understand that failure just means you’re that much closer to doing something right that will lead to success. Most people view a failure as the end. So mindset and action are truly the key. You can have all the great information in the world but if you don’t apply it, it’s useless. So I’m happy you get that!

    .7450 Almost to that magical $1. Hit for .10 on the ClixGrid. Based on my calculations I got a bit less than .001 per ClixGrid click. Still a great way to drum up a free marketing investment.

  • Christoph

    Hey Eddy,

    I have just found this website and have read this article. Two questions. As the article is more than 2 years old, are hits4pay, youdata, and clixsense still the sites you would recommend to start? If you have to recommend a 4th site, which one would it be?

    Thanks.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Yes they are still all sites I use and make money with. Although youdata I use less nowadays. But they’re still legit.

    I have way more than 4 sites to recommend. All my other personal recommendations can be found here:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations

    Take the time to read this site and I’m confident you will make money and avoid scams. There is a lot of reading but folks that are luck enough to find this site are very happy with the results when they do read and take action.

    Good luck to you.

  • arty hill

    I liked it very much eddy. I can handle your humor and honesty. I am going to join wau.arty fromVT

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Glad to hear it Arty! I know my humor is corny. Lol

  • Emily

    Hello, Mr. Eddy. I’m not here because I don’t want to get out and work. In fact up until recently I held 3 part-time jobs at the same time (and was a full time student to boot). I’m a hard worker with a wide array of skills…and I have the massive student loan bill to prove it! But as a military wife who went through an unexpected pregnancy my career choices have been severely limited until that fateful day when school starts for our daughter.  
     
    Between taking care of every aspect at home (groceries, bills, preparing meals, laundry, cleaning, etc.) and providing 24/7 care for our toddler it’s practically impossible for me to invest additional time in job searching. Ironically we can’t afford childcare – it’s not like they offer 2 month loans for me to get a job and put money back to pay – so I’m perpetually stuck between a rock and a hard place. My husband works 12 hour shifts, additional time for training exercises and PT, and what little time he has left he tries his best to spend with us. He makes decent money (and thank God for TRICARE)…but you know how life is. It seems like the more money you make the more surprise expenses pop up. I can’t tell you how many days I’ve agonized over feeling like an inadequate counterpart (my husband has never made me feel this way) simply because despite all I do without a paycheck it just doesn’t feel like enough.
     
    I’m not looking to make a substantial income. I’m not looking for a quick fix. I’m looking for something, ANYTHING, that would put even $10 a week into the bank. I’m sure you know the feeling of ‘anything helps’. If I can help whittle down the grocery bill or manage to buy my daughter a Christmas present that didn’t get carried out of the Dollar Store then all the effort leading up to it would be worth it.
     
    In short thank you. I pray you’re not a scam yourself because I’ve decided to trust your articles and throw myself into every opportunity (even the $0.01-$0.05 a pop choices) that I can cram into my small window of ‘me time’. If I don’t get burned in the process you can bet you’ll be in my massive extension of internet contacts so that all of my struggling friends and family can find relief as well.    

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi Emily,

    No need for the formalities. You can just call me Eddy.
    I can totally appreciate the difficulty of your circumstances. Sadly it’s a story I have heard many times from people that visit this site.

    But here’s the thing, you already have the right attitude to succeed here. There a lot of people that visit this site with unrealistic expectations. They want to come here and find something that earns them thousands or even hundreds of dollars per month but don’t have the skills that command that type of money here in the work at home industry. Or worst still they won’t make adjustments to get the skills that will earn them that type of money. These folks are also the ones that don’t see the value in my multiple streams of income philosophy. But you have realistic expectations and understand that every penny earned counts towards bigger dollars. So you’ll do great here, provided you continue to read our articles and take action on the opportunities that work for you:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations

    As long as you do that you’ll earn the little money you’re seeking and probably more just like the thousands of others who visit this site and follow it religiously. In terms of me being a scam, as you actually take the time to read my material and the comments from others that shouldn’t even be a question. But just in case that doesn’t do it maybe some outside validation from other news agencies and sites might clear up that small doubt for you:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/media

    My last piece of advice to you is always do your research, never assume anything about any opportunity or job. If you always follow the steps in my scam video: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams you’ll never have to worry about being scammed.

    In any event, enough talking. Get to reading my recommendations page and the other stuff i’ve listed above. If you’re the type of person I think you are, I should be hearing back from you soon that you’ve started to make some money. Take care.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Glad to hear it! You’re welcome. Be sure to check out our recommendations page as well:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations You’ll find a lot of other ways to make money that you can later invest into training which will help you make even more money.

    Good luck.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Oh Emily,
    I was raised the same way. But I really prefer if we kept informal. I feel like an old man when you call me Mr Eddy. lol

    In any event, I’m so happy to hear you’ve been taking action and have already seen some of the fruits of your labor. Doesn’t it feel to good to make money from home legitimately without worrying about getting scammed?

    You go girl! Thanks for actually coming back and sharing your good news. Hopefully it inspires others who may be sitting on the fence instead of taking action.

    Congrats on the site. You’ve really hit the ground running! I think you’re going to be a great blogger from the little I’ve read thus far. It’s nice to hear that you specifically want me to get credit for the opportunities I introduce you to. Sometimes people feel that because someone gets paid for referring companies even if the companies are legitimate and help them it’s bad. So thanks for your support and understanding in that respect.

    I’m confident you’ll continue to experience many more successes. The first dime you earned was a success! Most people don’t even do that. So you’re way ahead of the curve and always remind yourself of this.

    In terms of your affiliate marketing ventures, I’m confident you’ll find success with that as well. However it may not be as fast as some of the other recommendations you have tried from me. As long as you understand this is a business that you’re in and it’s a marathon not a race. You’ll eventually see the fruits of your labor. You’ll just need a lot of patience and delayed gratification. But at least you’ll still be making money in the mean time with the other recommendations I have provided you.

    Thanks again for coming back and sharing your experience. You’ve probably just inspired a lot of other people to take action and taste the same success you have experienced thus far.

  • Rusearchin4me

    Hey Eddy, I’ve been checking out your website for about a week now.  I am very interested in learning about affiliate marketing and I have registered for the three websites you recommended.  I’m having problems viewing the video though.  Actually, I can see it but I can’t hear it.  I recently lost my job working from home as a bookkeeper over the internet.  I got to keep the computer but I  think the problem is that my old boss bought me a computer with no sound card.  Is there somewhere I can go to read about the steps rather than watching the video?  Thanks much!  Oh, and if you need a bookkeeper to keep track of all that money, I’m ready to work lol.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi,

    Unfortunately no we don’t have a transcript of any of our videos. You’re better off trying to access the material at a local library, plugging in some head phones or investing in a sound card which should be dirt cheap. Sorry about that.

    You have a great skill in Bookkeeping, you might be able to find something here:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/jobs we list new jobs there daily. So consider that as well. Starting an affiliate marketing business can take some time before you see some great results.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    I think you missed the point of this article. I would suggest re-reading it. In the example above you’re not using clixsense for just the few cents you earn. You’re using it to promote other programs you may be part of that earns you more money. If things work out these other programs could make you enough money to re-invest into other things like training at WA or whatever else your heart desires. Clixsense in this example is being used as a tool to build on not for the income aspect.

    That being said, clixsense still makes folks some decent spending money that others have re-invested. The fact of the matter is most people click on ads all the damn time or watch tv commericals and aren’t getting jack. You might as well make some money for something you do all the time already. If you want to get technical about the math. Calculate all the times you’ve clicked on ads, watched tv commercials or listened to radio ads. How many times did you make money doing that? My math skills are suspect at best but I would guess it was $0 for countless hours of doing that over your life time. Now you can earn some money spending the same time you have been for free. Seems to me you win with Clixsense.

    I don’t proclaim it’s something that you can live off. But people spend a lot of their down time surfing the web, playing stupid games and wasting tons of hours where they could be making some pocket change for gas, food or could be invested in a good book that betters themselves.

    You need to have a certain mindset to see the value of that. But not everyone does and that’s cool. I earn thousands of dollars per month from affiliate marketing and I still log into clixsense when I have down time between vegging in front of the tv, waiting on a phone call, etc.

    It’s easy money that I use for advertising other stuff that makes me more money. I could be like most and snicker at a few cents being a waste of my time but I don’t and it pays lovely every month.

    But to each their own. I hope this makes some “cents”. Pun intended. LOL I want to leave you with this you can’t make dollars without cents. Everyone has to find their own path. Ultimately I want people to find the opportunities that maximize their time to make the most money. That’s why we provide various ways to make money besides clixsense:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations but as a firm believer in multiple streams of income, I don’t like leaving an easy money on the table. If I can pick it up, then I will. Most of the people that visit this site and are successful feel the same way.

    But to each their own.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    No question is stupid. Back in the day you could just slap affiliate links on classifieds or using PPC that’s not really the case anymore. If you actually want to be successful you’ll need to create a website which literally takes 10 minutes with free website builders like blogger.com, weebly.com, wordpress.com. So that shouldn’t even be a hurdle any more. The real hurdle is getting people to visit the website which is why internet marketing training is necessary.

    Spamming blog comments like here is a nice way to get blacklisted and your comment deleted. No one wants spam on their blogs. We want users providing valuable insight, asking good questions. We don’t people doing self promotions on our sites. That’s why you need to create your own site so you can self promote all you want without angering others.

    At the end of the day even if you have a site and do take my advice and learn internet marketing to get traffic to it, if you’re not providing value, you’re not going to make money. If you think just slapping up links is going to do it, it won’t! Who would you trust more if you were purchasing something? Would it be your best friend who you’ve had a relationship with and has helped you in the past with useful information and other stuff. Or the sales man at the store that you don’t know from a hole in the wall. I would argue most people would trust their friends recommendation and advice more.

    Well having a website is like being that friend to thousands of people. People are more inclined to trust you if you build a relationship with them on your website. That’s done via good content and answering comments and emails. It actually involves more work but yields more money. When you half ass your effort you’ll get half ass results.

    So don’t look for short cuts. Do things the right way treat people how you would want to be treated. If you wanted find just links randomly slapped up useful, then what makes you think others would? Think like the people you want to attract and you’ll do great.

    Hope this makes “Cents” to you. This is how I do it and make a full time living. So I know it works. But it involves “WORK”. I know it’s a dirty word nowadays. People think the internet is all easy but no it involves the same offline work ethic to be successful online.

    Good luck my friend.

  • Irodriguez_pr

    Hello Eddy,
    love your articles. i tried using hits4pay but it only pays 2 cents per email read, and it does not send me emails every day. is it anyother way i can earn money and learn on how to affiliate?
    thanks

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi,

    Glad you like the articles. As I’ve argued hits4pay and sites like it are just meant to make a few extra bucks. You can’t really live off that. Try some of my other recommendations for more substantial money:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations

    We take a multiple streams of income approach. Multiple little opportunities can add up to some decent money. So keep that in mind. Hope this helps.

    Good luck.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Scott,
    Thanks for your kind words, I really appreciate it. Here’s the thing any company you’re going to research (and I applaud you for doing so) will have positive and negative feedback. What I always tell people to do is weigh out both sets of information and make a decision based on that.

    With that said WA teaches you a business skill which is affiliate / internet marketing. Then it’s pretty much up to you to take that skill and build up a successful business. It’s like any other skill if you apply it successfully you’ll make money. If not you won’t. That’s like people complaining that they went to college and can’t land a job. The college did their part by teaching you the skills you need. Now getting the job is up to you. So that’s my take on this type of comment.

    I’m totally upfront that I make money promoting WA. But it’s not my full source of income. It’s actually only a fraction of it. And even if someone is making a full time living promoting WA then it goes to show you that the techniques learned at WA is what helped them achieve that. That same skill can be applied to any other type of company or product to promote.

    At the end of the day you have to trust your own gut. If there is something about the company that doesn’t sit right with you then don’t join. Because you’ll end up looking for a reason as to why the company is bad.

    Affiliate marketing is a tough business. It requires a lot of hard work, patience and delayed gratification that most people have. I think a lot of times when people join something like WA they may have been mislead by the person promoting it. They didn’t set up the type of expectations i do in my own review:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/wareview

    where i basically lay out all the cons so it scares the bejesus out of the wrong people. Others like to sugar coat things and hide the negatives. So then when they get in and discover some of these cons on their own, they’re pissed. So keep that in mind as well.

    I hope this helps either way.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi,

    You might want to read my review on WA and actually visit their website:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/wareview it breaks down what you’ll learn which in a nutshell is internet and affiliate marketing. All the skills will be taught there so there really isn’t a reason to do it the hard way and try to learn on your own.

    Running a business isn’t like a job. It’s going to be very hard and you’re going to spend a lot of time unpaid for the first couple of months and even a year as you learn your craft and build up your business.

    Seeing 5 or even 4 figures may take some time or it may happen relatively quickly. That all depends on how you apply what you learn and if you actually take action. All I can tell you is that I’ve learned a lot from WA and continue to apply what I’ve learned which is why I’ve been very successful. Can I guarantee you’ll see the same success? Nope! That’s going to be on you just like any business you would try.

    Hope this makes sense. Good luck.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    I’ve been slapped by Google a few times. But fortunately I have a lot of different keywords I rank for not something as fluid as just work at home or work from home. So those long tail keywords account for more of my traffic and are less subject to their constant algo changes.

    I also have a list of people I can tap into. I’m actually trying to learn more about email marketing because I don’t like constantly worrying about their changes. But for the most part I’ve been fine.

    Changes are part of business, you just need to adjust accordingly. If you’re providing value people will share your stuff and you’ll still get traffic. But it’s also why I preach multiple streams of income.

  • Vanilla3swirl

    Hi Eddy  My wife and i just started with coffee shop millionaires and called for a personal consultant it cost us a bundle. The consultant firm was PMI we found out that they are a huge scam out fit and we are trying to get our money back. I sure wish we would have found your site first were going to try it and see what we can do with it. Were motivated to get started and make money. We now know were not going to get rich quick but what we do make will help pay for more education on affiliate marketing. Thanks for the free start!

    You’re welcome! At the end of the day this was a good learning experience. There is always something good you can take from a bad experience. It led you to this site, so it did work out for the best. I’m confident as you read more of the site in particular the recommendations page:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations you’ll be well on your way to your goals.

    Hi Cortina,
    Glad to hear you’re finally taking action. It’s the only way any of my information works.

    By the way we do have an accounting section and have a few jobs listed there: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/jobs/browse_by_category/Accounting/

    In terms of WA, yes it’s still my top recommendation and now it’s available for free for 10 days:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2012/04/30/work-at-home-update-wealthy-affiliate-is-free/

    I hope this helps.

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Hi,

    Thanks for contacting me and the kind words. Trust your gut. It’s probably right. It sounds like this is probably a company that is going to teach you how to use Amazon’s affiliate program but disguising it as a job which is already a bad sign they’re not being upfront with you.

    The one way I know to earn with Amazon outside their associate program is Mturk which we’ve covered here: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/07/29/work-at-home-with-amazoncom/

    Also when you want to research a company, just follow the steps in my scam video here:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams

    That’s how I research anything.

    In any event, working at home is totally possible. It’s just a matter of having the right guidance and resources. Now that you’ve found this site, you have both.

    Try visiting our recommendations page for starters:

    Everyone is claiming to make money but no one is showing real proof.

  • http://SeniorCareinfoUSA.com/ Amy

    Eddy, I joined Wealthy affiliate through your link (for a year, you’re welcome LOL :) ). it is by FAR one of the best investments I have made. The wealth (no pun intended) of knowledge I have gained in only 2 weeks in amazing! My niche is the elderly, now i know how to make it profirable AND help people. I doubt I would have found W.A. without your site. Thank you, from myself and my family!

  • http://www.workathomenoscams.com Eddy Salomon

    Amy, Thanks for sharing this with me! I think a lot of times people just think I’m pushing WA for the commission aspect. But it’s really because it’s one of the best environments to learn about this industry. They’ve made so many great changes in the last few months that have just continue to make it the best. It was totally named correctly, because it does provide you with a “wealth” of knowledge. But it’s only effective for those who take action and do it consistently.

    Sounds like you’re that type of person and thus will see results. Keep me posted. Thanks again for chiming in and sharing your experience. I really appreciate it!
