Just because so many people are jumping onto the social networking bandwagon, does not mean you have to do that too. Not everyone wants a huge bus-load of friends to follow their daily routines on every social network available. For some of us, the idea of staying behind the scenes, yet finding the best ways to make money is very appealing.
Forget for a minute that most of the scams online are perpetrated by people who hide behind flashy websites and email addresses. Many people doing business online are very honest, but are still not interested in opening up their private lives to the world, especially via the Internet. If this describes you, but you still want to find a way to earn money online, then consider these few ideas.
You can trade forex from home. Many of my friends are joining people all over the world in the forex market. First they get trained, and then they open private online brokerage accounts with $300 to $10,000. This allows them to make money without selling anything online or off-line. This also means they do not have to socialize, make friends, put their picture online, or join social networks. Yet some of them make an above-average income from this activity.
Some people go on to discover that the best ways to make money online and still remain anonymous is to do Pay Per Click Marketing. Using websites such as Google, they buy traffic, sell other people’s stuff to visitors who are searching for these products or services. This can be a very lucrative way to earn a living. The secret to doing PPC successfully success is to create effect landing pages that will pre-sell their visitors, and yet pay much less for traffic than you make in commissions. PPC affiliate marketers are some of the top marketers online. PPC requires real skills, and attention to detail.
One business model that has become very popular in the last few years is something called Ghost Writing. In this instance, you are contracted to write for other online publishers who either do not have the time, or the skills to do so. If you have a good grasp of the English Language, and you can do some basic research, you can register yourself with an online broker such as guru dot com. You will then bid on jobs that others have placed online. Your articles or books may be all over the net, earning you money, but no one will know that you wrote them. I would certainly list this as one of the best ways to make money anonymously.
