If you want to earn money online there are several methods that work well. The key is to try to have 2 or 3 separate income streams going at the same time so if one income stream fails you still have money coming in.
In 2005 I gave up a well paid corporate job with IBM to start my own business. After a few months it was obvious that my research was flawed and I wasn’t going to be able to earn enough money to survive so I needed some way else of earning money. At this point I had no knowledge of Internet marketing and didn’t know the difference between AdSense and affiliates.
They say that necessity is the mother of invention, well desperation is the mother of action. I took action and started to generate an online income. Within months I had enough money coming in that I could relax a bit and focus on a long term strategy. It wasn’t easy to get to that stage and it took a lot of hard work. As a result I was determined to share some of the knowledge I gained through making mistakes and perseverance. I created The Income Academy to create an ultra cheap way to share my knowledge with people who wanted to learn how to make an online income.
As I said earlier in this article there are many ways to earn an income online. below I have listed 5 . The thing you need to remember is that it’s not just as simple as making a website then waiting for your money to flood in.
Creating a service is a good way of generating an income, if you can write articles for people. If you have good design skills create a website graphics and page templates. Once you have regular customers you will have a steady income stream.
Simple Affiliate Marketing. Find a product you like on Clickbank and review it create several articles and post them to website directories.
Create informative websites and add advertising such as AdSense to them.

The above methods are just some of the methods that our members use to earn an income. At the Income Academy we provide you with as much help as you require and many of the tools. Despite what the Gurus will have you believe you don’t need every tool and guide that is released in fact it is possible to start to make a good income without spending more than a few dollars.
