How Do I Get Started Making Money on the Internet

Posted by Marty Dickinson on Nov 9, 2007

Question: “I’m 74 and had a stroke last year. How can I begin making money on the Internet to supplement my retirement income?”

Answer: Unless you already have a product or service to offer immediately for sale online, probably the easiest thing for you to do is find a product that is already being sold online that is in an area of your interest and sign-up as an affiliate for it. It’s usually free to do that. First, buy the product and try it yourself so that you can ethically and accurately endorse it. And, then promote it to others in a niche area of your expertise and interest and get the commission for it. Technically, you don’t even need a website to do that.

So, first go to and start an account for yourself and see what products people are offering in there and go through the process.

If you decide you do want to get a website up and running, I suggest you give this product a try

I’ve known the maker of this product for about two years now and it’s truly the simplest way I’ve ever seen of getting a website up and running that will begin producing immediate results.

Projecting Adsense Revenue

Question from Dave:
“How can I project my revenue from having Google ads displaying on my website?”

Web Site Waves Answer:
You can generally expect a 1% or 2% click through rate for AdSense ads, and that’s on a good day. So, that means for every 100 visitors you get, plan on getting 1 or 2 of them to click on an AdSense ad. Typical payouts for each click on an AdSense ad are usually 5 cents to 20 cents, sometimes up to 50 cents or a dollar. Of course, the type of ad you place (colors, ad format, size) and its location on a page will influence all of those things.
