Hi everybody, this is Clark here and welcome to BecomeWealthyWithMe.com. Today on this post let me introduce you to a brilliant alternative to the highest paying online survey jobs that you can find. Despite the term “highest paying”, you couldn’t really earn much with online surveys. You’ll have to treat online survey filling like a full-time job if you want to make enough money to pay your bills and have some left for your savings and investment.
For example, the highest-paying online survey websites that I’ve heard of are Swagbucks, Toluna, Valued Opinions, YouGov and Vivatic. Swagbucks in particular comes highly recommended. However, each Swagbucks survey takes about 10 minutes to complete, meaning you can earn around £2.40 an hour, and that is assuming you receive a continuous flow of surveys requiring your participation. That comes to about £24 a day if you work for 10 hours. And that’s not a lot.
What I’m suggesting instead is called online marketing, and if you become worried of the word marketing, just know that it’s not necessary to sell anything to make money with this. Although you certainly can, what with billions of DOLLARS being spent online every day on products and services.
What Do You Do With Online Marketing?
The online marketing process can basically be broken down into four major steps, and they are:
1) Deciding on your niche or business direction. This is what you want to write about and publish on your website. What are your interests and passions? Perhaps you want to help people reach their ideal weight. Or perhaps you’re interested in learning and then writing about personal development. There are more than 3 billion people on the Internet and whichever topic you choose, you’re going to have a big audience.
2) Creating a website. A website is your online space or “store”, that people visit and where you try to get them to give you some of their hard-earned money. To create a free website, I recommend the platform at Wealthy Affiliate, an online marketing training website that also provides a state-of-the-art, yet simplistic website platform for its members to build and run their online businesses. Free members can create and manage up to two websites with their free membership.
3) Get traffic (website visitors), and this will make you successful online. Keep in mind that besides earning money, your website is there to help your visitors obtain what they want, whether it’s entertainment, information or product reviews that allow them to make an informed decision. Write and publish relevant, engaging and helpful posts regularly on your website, which creates trust with the search engines and gets more of your posts ranked on the first page of Google and other search engines.
When a search is made online, if (and only if) your post shows up on page 1 of the search results is it likely to get clicks and readership. And here I just want to assure you that you don’t need to be a master at writing or anything like that. Just communicate via your posts like you do with your friends and family.
Ideally every post you create should target a quality keyword that you should insert somewhere in the title of the post as well as somewhere within the first paragraph. To know more about keywords, read my post (second half): How to be Successful with an Online Business
4) Make MONEY. With a website, there are two HUGELY popular methods by which you can earn money and they are affiliate marketing and placing advertisements (ads) on your website. Affiliate marketing is a process where you (the affiliate) promote other people’s (merchants’) products or services on your website, and earn commissions if you manage to generate sales.
By placing ads on your website, you earn money each time one of your visitors clicks on an ad of yours. The most popular ad network is Google Adsense, but there are also other high-paying ad networks such as Media.net, BidVertiser, VigLink, Chitika and Infolinks.

How Much Could You Possibly Earn With Online Marketing?
Spend a few hours every day to write and publish new content (your main task), as well as work on your website’s layout, and you could earn $2,000-$3,000 a month within, say 3 to 6 months of creating a new website on the Internet. It’s also said that it’s possible to scale your business to earn tens of thousands of dollars per month in a few years’ time if you put in some hard work.
And that’s all for today!! Before I leave you here, if you have ANY questions or comments at all please leave them below and I’ll be more than happy to help you out. Thanks!
