I have been searching for ways to earn extra money online and I have come across a lot of sites offering a chance to make a decent amount of money online. There are those offering this chance for free and there are those offering a 1 time membership and there are those that offers this opportunity to make money online with a monthly recurring fee. There are 2 prominent arguements on this: Argument #1: If a website offers you a chance to earn a decent amount of money for a fee then stay away from those sites. Supporters of this argument are saying that the opportunity to earn money online should be free. The people working should be the one paid and not the website or clubs. Argument #2: There's no such thing as "free lunch". Are there still something that is free in this day and age. Everything comes with a price. In every business, there should be an investment and websites offering this chance to earn money are telling us that the membership fee is an investment if one wants to succeed. Ofcourse everybody wants to earn money with zero investment but this maybe too good to be true. Personally, I don't mind to pay a certain amount of fee provided that I get value for what I pay and as long as the chance of earning more than what I pay is high. What do you think?

Forex is too complicated I think and too risky. In the site I was referring to in my earlier response, you can make money by promoting other people's products. If a sale has been made with your help then you get a commission so potentially there's big money here. For Forex, you can win big but you can also loose big. For the site I was referring to atleast the only potential loss you can incur is your membership fee if the site is a scam but if the site is real then the fee is really nothing compared to what you can potentially earn. Cheers!

I never tried Investing money in Online sites to generate income because I feel it is quite risky, and Further I'm earning a quite good amount from online and never invested a single penny even, So in my view when there is way to earn a good amount without investing and without Risk then why to choose something with risk associated with it. Keep Smiling and Happy myLotting...

I'm happy to hear that you are making money online without investing money. Just curious, is the money you are earning already enough or close to what you are currently earning with a regular job? If yes then wow, you are very fortunate. The site I came across needs you to pay a fee but the fee will give you access to quality step by step videos on how to start earning a decent amount of money and also step by step videos on how to boost your earning to a level that can easily surpass the money you earn with a regular job. This is the investment I am saying, if the fee will give you quality training and excellent support for you to earn money faster and increase your income then I think this is a good investment. For newbies like me, I need the support of a tried and tested website to provide me the training, tools and techniques necessary for me to start and succeed. The internet is such a complicated and such a big world and newbies like me can get lost very easily so I am willing to invest a reasonable amount just to ensure that I succeed in my goal to earn money. Hope you understand my position. Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate it..Cheers!

I'm happy for you for earning money online with the system you are in now and by all means, stick with your system if you have been successful with it. However, the system seems to be a pyramiding scheme and I simply stay away from those schemes because of past experiences. I'd rather earn money online by promoting other people's products online. Check this site: http://wwwmaverickmoneymakingonlinenow.com This clube earn big money by promoting other people's products online and members are given the tried and tested techniques and the tools to be successful. Promoting other people's products is hardwork but the reward is big if you are successful. Cheers!

What about the investment of time? Shouldn't your time be worth something? I've been trying to earn online for quite some time now.

Yes, definitely. A lot of time is also needed just to find legit sites that will pay you a decent amount of money. Really frustrating at times but if you are serious in making a decent amount of money online then brush your frustrations aside and keep on going. Making money online is really no different as making money outside the net. You need to invest both time and money and that is why when some sites offer you to earn big money for free then I normally ignore them. Some of these sites do pay you but normally the pay is not even worth 1/4 of the time you have invested so bottomline, it's totally a waste of time. From my months of searching for an opportunity to make money online, the best sites are those wherein you make money by promoting other people's products. Yes, it's not as easy as said but there's one site that makes it easy by the step by step procedure they provide their members. It's like how to make money on-lin for Dummies. The quality of the training materials are very good and easy to follow. In my opinion, this is one of the best site if you want to earn money online. Downside is, there's a membership fee. However, the fee is really nothing compared to the training you will get and really nothing compared to the potential amount of money you can earn if you follow the style, tips and techniques discussed in the training videos. If you are interested, add me as your friend so that I can send you the link. Just see what this site has to offer then you decide if you want to join. Cheers!
