Is Making Money Online a Scam?
To begin, I would like to tell you that myself have been scammed online more than once…. If I’m talking about scamming online…. I know what it is….
But one of the things that made me start this journey as a content marketer is that many people tend to overgeneralize that everything that is advocating of making money online is fake…. Today, I would like just to mention that not all money-making ventures are fake or scammy!
I’m here to advocate of decent online money making and I’ll keep this free of any scam…. I personally cannot lay my hands on dirty money….
There are different mechanisms used to earn some bucks online… We have different small jobs online that really pay cash for some people who take them! Out there are online game platform owners paying real cash to players…. So, don’t be too pessimistic… There is always a way out whatever jammy the world has become.
Another preferred way to earn money online, which is personally my favorite, is that of availing information for people who needed it and then monetize the availability of such information …. This is scam free!
This is a new form of marketing whereby a valuable, helpful, and relevant information is availed, shared and distributed online to a specific audience that hungers or starves for it…. All being done for the sake of driving profitable actions (taken by that specific audience) to benefit that content/ information creator.
===>A Content is any information viewed and shared online. For your information, a content can take different formats: it can be either image, audio, video or text (Ramos, 2013).
Some formats can be combined (text+image) while others can exclusively work on their own (audio)…. But all depends on the sharing channel one intends to use when distributing their valuable information.
If one intends to share such information through podcast…. Well… The best way to do that is through audio contents.
In the case someone intends to distribute such valuable information through a YouTube channel, the good way to achieve this is the use of video contents although some videos or motion pictures can also include some textual information!
===> The core idea in the definition above is that there is a content creator who creates valuable information to make profits…..
===> There is also a person or group/category/section of people experiencing or in need of information created by that content creator…. Such information alleviates the target audience’s problems, wants, queries, needs or desires in some way…
===> So, be a content creator and look for a way to monetize the information you give to a section of people hungering or starving for it!
Success Stories in Content Marketing
A young man (21 year old in 2019) from Taiwan and a college drop-out, he started earning some bucks online after he joined Wealthy Affiliate (WA), that Online Entrepreneur Certification Training I always review in my posts!
In April 2019, his Success in garnering $42K in four hours are unprecedented! Later in that same week, he published a post at Wealthy Affiliate whereby he featured graphics of his income: $100+K in one week!
You can believe it through his own posts! I don’t like to lure people at all!
In April 2019, he exclaimed in his Blog at WA:
I now make almost as much in a single month than I did working an entire year, it still seems unreal
This shows that what internet entrepreneurship is bringing to him seems unreal, in the minds of some of us it resonates as if it were scammy! Himself could not believe it…but it was real…him who once suffered ….set up a system or machinery that is called content marketing….it changed his life….

Expertise, Experience or Likes: Keys to Help Successfully Online
Do you have a certain level of education? Are you an expert in something… Or skilled at doing something?
Do you have certain experience… Work experience…. are you experienced in a certain field?
Is there any field you enjoy most… That you will not lack ideas to share with others…. that you like really talking about… That you really enjoy sharing information about…???
===> All of these questions are inquiring on your potentialities to be able to share valuable information…. You know you cannot share something of value if ever you don’t like it, or you have no education about it…. the worst being sharing information in a field you don’t have any experience….
That is why your expertise, your experience or your likes are keys to being able to share helpful, valuable, and relevant information with your target audience.
Requirements for Making Money Online
There is a set of Requirements for someone to make some bucks online
===> The determination of your own niche is a critical step for your success online
A niche is a target audience, potential customers, a section of market…. Briefly the consumers of your information…. The audience hungering for the information you will be creating, availing, distributing or sharing!
(2) website or blog
This is your online hub…. an address online whereby your target audience will be coming and providing themselves with the information they need…. This is a meeting point between you, the content creator, and the audience to whom you have created such contents.
This used to be a troublesome thing…. Because running a website was perceived to be a daunting and hard…. But nowadays solutions abound…. Wealthy Affiliate’s SiteRubix has made it simpler by availing a system that is meant to help you create your own website in less than 5 minutes, incredible…isn’t it?
(3) Keywords Hunting which is best done by using sophisticated tools known as Keywords Search Tools (I use Jaaxy)… The latter helps you determine the traffic, the competition, and average of how many times a given phrase or keyword has been typed into search engines each month.
A good keyword fulfills the standards of low competitivity: average about 50, traffic about 50 (above 100 being the ideal), competition (Quoted Search Results, QSR) below 100…. The smaller QSR, the better.
(4) Headline writing: headlines that are compelling also known as killer-headlines.… are likely to compel searchers not to bypass your contents…. So, it’s better that you get acquainted or study how to write killer-headlines >>>>>Learn it here.
(5) Quality contents: the quality of your content depends upon how helpful, valuable, and relevant the information shared or distributed is.
(6) Ranking in search engines is also a great requirement… And if one uses a keyword search tool, comes out with low competitive keywords and good, it is quite possible to rank among the top pages of search engines.
(7) Huge traffic: keywords and killer -headlines are likely to drive you a considerable number of website blog visitors.
===>And when are these requirements are fulfilled…. You stand a chance to start earning passive income online…
Disclaimer: the requirements that I’m giving here are not quick acting ones…. They need time to be met… I don’t wish you to come next time … pop me up with questions as if I am a liar or a scammer… I’m sharing something you can do patiently and see the results later…. This is not a- get-so-rich-quickly scheme…. But it is a proven and sure way to earn money online.
Monitoring Target People’s Needs
To create successfully contents that are likely to be valuable, helpful and relevant to your target audience can better be achieved through monitoring the problem your target audience is encountering….
So before creating any content, you needed to inquire your target audience’s problems/wants/ qualms/ desires/ needs or questions…
This can be accurately monitored through (1)Keyword Search Tool that have already talked about.
The two other ways that are less accurate but very informative can be the (2) use of social question-answer websites whereby people ask questions and others answer them… By visiting such websites then you can see what people are hungering for knowing… And how limited are the answers they are given…. This is your opportunity to create deeper contents… Those which really clear any shadow for the same target audience
You can also user (3) Twitter….. Through searching for example 6 months old tweets about topics you are an expert at, already have experience in or simply you like talking about…. can give you some hint or simply inspire you on topics you can cover to answer some questions contained in those tweets!
===> If then you can come out with problem solving-oriented contents, this will score you high in the eyes of your audience…. As they are going to start trusting you like their number one source of information… when this trust is already established, your target audience will be ready to take any action (profitable for you) you may suggest them to take.
Monetizing Help Online
===>Put Ads on your website: some Ads owners may pay you for anyone who clicks their Ads via your website
===>Affiliate Marketing whereby you promote on your website or blog others’ products or services ….you may then apply for that to promote Big stores’ products like Click Bank, Microsoft Affiliate, Amazon (USA, UK, Canada, Japan, China, etc), Alibaba, Tao Bao, etc. By the term of a successful application, they give you access to products unique links. Then put these links on your website. If some of your visitors buy something from these stores, you will get a commission (for example: if an item purchased via your website costs $30, you may get 6% for Amazon USA);
===> By hooking people at your paid services like courses, coaching, webinars, or you can even connect your offline services and advertise them on your online hub or stand (website/blog).
===> Through Referral Programs: the latter allow you as member to make money online through referring some services or premium subscriptions to others.
A patent example is that of Wealthy Affiliate (WA) whereby a premium member is paid recurrent monthly passive income as they refer new members at WA. Join Wealthy Affiliate Today and Enjoy this program
