The question of how to earn big money through an Internet business opportunity is probably the most asked by people searching the web! It is no wonder that there are thousands of programs being advertised that promise you big money earnings for the cost of a few $100s subscription. When I began to get interested in Internet Marketing a contact of mine offered all the training courses that he head purchased for sale at a discounted price of $20,000!

This does seem a little extreme but I can assure you that there are many affiliate marketing training courses that cost $1000s each and will give you plenty of information how to earn big money from the Internet – the trouble is that contrary to what they might promise, making money is never going to be easy. It will require hard work, some investment and it will take time.

A business plan for earning a lot of money from the Internet for one person working full time could look something like this:

Year 1 – Total earnings $200 – Total Investment $1000

Year 2 – Total earnings $3600 – Total Investment $2000

Year 3 – Total earnings $48,000 – Total investment $12,000

If you consider the fact that to work full time you are giving up your salary this Internet business plan does not look very attractive! The first two years would appear to be almost impossible to get through for most people without losing enthusiasm. Even the third year does not appear to be attractive if you are currently earning a decent wage.

However, if you look at year 4, assuming that you are following a program of 250 separate keywords being targeted that you have estimated are worth at least $50 each per month:

Year 4 – Total earnings $150,000 – Total investment $24,000

Now things are beginning to look a little more rosy. However, most people will not want to wait four years to be earning at this sort of level – but many will be happy to participate part time to earn a reasonable second income? Or, look at it another way, how could you speed up the process of getting to the Year 4 figures, without hefty investment in web site creation and search engine optimisation?

I know the theory of a number of different ways to earn big money on the Internet – but do not have the time to put the ideas into practice on a full time basis. To date I have been working at a business idea very much part time for two years and am somewhat short of the Year 2 target at the moment. Therefore I am looking at the best way to grow an income of around $100 each month into $1000 within the next 12 months – but only working part time. This will be done by exploiting the work that I have already put in – which of course has a value but has not been utilised fully yet.

For example I have 80 key words that have a potential earning capacity of $7,000 per month for one web site alone. I have only targetted 30 of these keywords so far and on average have only created around 10% of the backlinks for each one. Therefore, I will post 50 articles for the additional keywords – one per week, to my site over the coming year. Then each article will require separate articles posting to respectable directories around the Internet with backlinks to my site – to be undertaken regularly over the coming year.

What is the earnings potential?

Well if I do 5 articles a week for each of the new articles, taking about a half day of my time, I believe that my monthly income will rise to at least $1000. If I do 50 articles giving 50 back links to each article on my site – every month taking probably most of my time (unless I subcontract the article writing at a cost of say $1000 per month), then I am confident my earnings would increase to between $3000 and $5000 per month – possibly as far as the $7000 estimate. If I see the potential rising I will target my other sites some more, and introduce others – everybody needs some encouragement I suppose. I know that there are many people out there squeezing in 20-30 hours every week that are seeing their earnings slowly grow into $1000s per month.

Why do most people fail?

Writing an article to post on the Internet to obtain a back link may only take you a half hour. The trouble is that you will not visibly notice any return for your effort. Any return that you do get, will impact your earnings several months down the line. Most people need to see results straight away.

So you can earn big money from the Internet – you need to invest time to learn how – time to work at your sites – and money to increase the pace at which you reap returns. Personally I think that the subject area is fascinating, and will continue to promote my sites slowly – hopefully adding valuable content from time to time that will assist with the rankings no end and provide an interesting forum for surfers. If a sideline income develops more rapidly than it has done so far (and I believe it will) – so much the better.
