Q:  Does it cost money to make money online?

A:  Any good result will take some monetary investment, but you can be smart about it.  There are programs out there to help you build a website, search keywords, become an affiliate, without any initial start up costs.  It is possible to make a few dollars before spending any first.  

Q:  Do I have to have a computer or internet service to have my own online business? 

A:  Not necessarily.  If you have access to the local library that you can frequent and use their computer, and their internet service, you can get your business going from there.  I do, recommend, however, that having your own computer and internet service at home is helpful, as you may get some of your best ideas and want to market them while sitting on the couch at home.  Eventually, you may wish to have that luxury. 

Q:  Can I start my own on-line business by just using my mobile phone? 

A:  This may be possible, but will definitely be more frustrating.  There are many things that are available by mobile use when building your website, and marketing your products.  You can certainly research things on your mobile phone, however, when ready to put the information to your website, a computer will make it ALOT easier.

A:  Not always.  There are thousands of programs out there.  Amazon, Jaaxy,  and Swagbucks are a few that have no start up costs.  Be sure to read the agreement terms before marketing, to be sure you will no incur fees down the road.  

Q:  I’m afraid that I will be scammed.  I’ve been stuck before.  How do I avoid it?

A:  Trust me, I feel your pain.  I’ve been there.  I’ve walked in your shoes.  My way of doing my best to avoid a scam is to simply ask.  You can google nearly anything.  Ask the question in the Google search bar:  “Is ___ a scam”  (filling in the ___ with the program you are reviewing).  You can also ask for “reviews on ___”, or “Is ___ legit”.  All of these are valid questions.  Furthermore, the reviews are given by those who have studied them in debt and/or have been scammed by them unfortunately.  Keep in mind that the program – organization will put their own reviews online as well, so be sure to read as many answers to your question as you can to get a good feel for the program you are considering.   

Q:  Do you recommend having more than one affiliate program to promote, or combining your products in one website?

A:  Yes, having more than one affiliate program to promote on your site is advantageous to you.  The more you promote the more opportunities you will have to make money online.  I would not recommend having them all on one page.  Have separate pages for them.  You have links that more between them, but don’t promote all on one page.  Furthermore, I do not recommend more than 3-4 advertisements on your sidebar.  This can be too distracting to your reader and then they won’t read the important content on your pages for the program you are promoting.  

Q:  I feel to old to learn new things and need something easy to understand.  Can I get instructions that are easy to ready, easy to do for the regular person who has no real computer experience?  

A:  Yes, you can.  Wealthy Affiliate is one of the many affiliates that I belong to that is spelled out in step-by-step instructions and easy to understand.  There are videos that show you the steps, easy reading and also help from others who have walked in your shoes.  It can be fun to learn and learning is part of life.
