First off there is no real quick way to make money online despite the number of claims, the number of websites, and programs there are online. However, there are many great programs and millions of great websites and their claims are true.
Take time to really research any claim that states that you can make money online and especially if they say "fast". Also I strongly advise that you personally check out your state and the federal laws, and I would consult with a lawyer in your area who specializes in business practices and internet law.
Example: I have been involved with Amazon for years but recently because my physical business is located in Missouri I was told by Amazon that the law here in Missouri that I was nolonger qualified to be their representative. However, after review, because my website`s business is global and not local, I was reinstated within hours. Keep in mind that Amazon is and was a pioneer in affiliate marketing and has openned doors for so many companies world wide. Another big factor in my case I was grandfathered in.
Amazon is not by far a get rich quick scheme, nor is eBay, another great business I have been involve with from their beginning.
Promoting any business online may and often do require additional programs to build a business online and to make money online. A program that may start out costing say $97 USD may end up costing thousands in supportive services as well as alot of time and work in email marketing, search engine marketing, social media marketing, social networking, as well as physical marketing tools. And lets not leave out the potential legal fees and taxes which may be applicable.
I and my company get hundreds of request to promote businesses locally and world wide and we have seen thousands of businesses come and go, fraud complaints, bad reviews, straight out scams, and more.
Yes, people really do make money online and some faster than others but I strongly recommend you hire an expert to build your business and online presence. We are committed to your success
