he top 3 ways to make real money online are Ebay, Google Adsense, and Affiliate Marketing.  There are other ways to make an income on the internet but those three broad categories are the best and fastest ways to make money online.


Practically everyone has heard of E-Bay.  It is an online auction site that pretty much dominates the internet for what is called “hard goods”.   The key is to find items you can acquire for less than people are willing to buy them for on E-Bay.   The basic steps are:

  1. Sign up for a seller account on E-bay. You will need a bank account or a credit card that E-Bay can use to bill you with. They insist on being able to automatically withdraw their fees from your billing source so be sure to use a source that has the money in it. 

  2. Create listings that describe the items you have for sale.

  3. Sell and ship your items

  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3.

You will need a way to accept payments from buyers and to send payments to sellers in many cases so consider signing up for a PayPal Merchant account.  PayPal offers a number of unique solutions for accepting payments on websites and by email as well as on E-Bay.  This is  important because you will want to support your E-Bay sales by setting up a website to sell your products and goods on almost as soon as you get established as  an E-Bay seller.     Disclaimer: I do receive a referral fee for any non-Ebay transactions you conduct as a PayPal Merchant.

You might also consider selling your hard goods on Amazon as an alternative to E-Bay. Some items sell better there. One example is books.  But, don’t rush out to buy and sell books online. It’s a very competitive market and you may want to find a niche such as first editions or hard to find repair manuals.  For example, I was able to earn a 900% profit on a motorcycle repair manual I bought at a flea market. 

If you are wondering how you can get products to sell on E-Bay here are a couple of articles that show you how to keep a never ending stream of products coming in for your E-Bay business.

Google AdSense

Google AdSense is a really cool way to make money by selling advertising space online.  The basic steps to earning money this way is:

1.   Create a website that gets a reasonable amount of traffic for keywords that advertisers are willing to pay a reasonable price for.  

2.   Sign up for a Google AdSense Publisher account

3.   Place  Google AdSense code on your website

4.   Let Google AdSense manage the ads and pay you for each of your visitors that clicks on an advertisement on your site. 

Of course, you have to choose a niche that will get visitors and that advertisers are willing to pay decently for.   One way to do that is to do some niche research using good tools such as SBI’s Search Tool  You can also use Google Adwords  free keyword tool to find keywords.  You can use this tool to estimate what people are willing to pay for keywords.  Google recently announced that they share approximately 60% of the revenue with the website owner where their advertisements are displayed. If Google charges an advertiser $1 for someone to click on an advertisement you earn 60 cents. 

Google’s terms of service forbid publishers from telling people how much they make but it’s a sure bet that people are making money by selling advertising space online to Google and other search engines such as Yahoo and Bing.  Of course, you aren’t limited to selling advertising space to Google.  There is ad management software that will let you rotate advertisements from different search engines and advertisement space buyers such as Chikita and even Amazon.

Affilliate Marketing

Another way to make real money online is by selling someone else’s products.  The best types of products online are software, E-books, or online programs.   If you are new to affliliate marketing I recommend you  read this article on affliliate marketing before you get started.

Be sure to do a little homework before you jump in.  Movies, music and clothing are all hot selling items online right now. But, if you jump into those niches you will probably spend a lot of money and get the joy of watching someone else eat your lunch. 

The true key to earning real money online is to do your homework and choose a niche or a market that you can succeed in. Regardless of which approach you use to make money you will find these free e-books very useful in creating your e-business.
