3. Join And Promote An MLM Program
MLM (multi level marketing) programs are a great way to make money and the Internet is no exception. Whether it is selling cosmetics or vitamins to health insurance, MLM programs allow representatives to earn a percentage of the sales that their recruits earn. MLM can be very profitable and the Internet is a great way to sell products for MLM businesses, as well as recruit new company representatives.
Note: I do not like these types of programs. I need to see how the numbers work (which they normally won’t reveal), I don’t like convincing people to buy crap products I don’t know myself, I don’t want to be on conference calls or attend meeting with big wigs trying to convince me to sell, while they are steadily taking a cut from my profits. But hey, if this is your thing, by all means continue doing whatever works for you. Read more about MLM

Make Money Online, Who Do You Listen To?
If you can’t find a way to focus your efforts, you will not make money online. Plain and simple; believe me, if you’ve been seeking to making money online.
There are so many sites online spewing information (whether right or wrong) and it’s hard to know who to listen to. Stop listening to this guy, that guy, another guy, and this guy because you will get information overload and won’t take action.
Many will have great information and you can always see yourself making money from the information when you start that project. The problem is that you will never finish a project. You will always be searching for something better and always looking for the next big thing. When you run in circles looking for something that didn’t require hardly any work and was going to make me a millionaire overnight, you end up going no where FAST!
Just pick something, do your research and stick to it. Once you start finishing your projects, whatever they may be, creating a product, building a website, writing sales copy, writing articles, etc., the money will start coming in.
The toughest dollar to make online is the first one. There are so many people that don’t make any money online and give up and go back to their day job.
Focus and hard work is going to get you a long way in life.
