How To Make Money Online (The Hard/Right Way)

Every month we make between $100-200 a month online from a few websites I built back in 2011. Everything I learned about making money online said to build low quality websites and then write hundreds of articles linking back to it, so it looked more useful than it really was.

Unfortunately google released their Panda update a month later that changed everything. But, 3 years later we still make a couple hundred bucks, so it wasn’t a complete waste of time.

Even more important is that I learned how to do it the right way, which happens to also be the hard way. The simple formula for making money online is:

Create useful content, build an audience. Then sell them a product of your own, or put ads on the site.

In the video I give an example of my own failed websites, and example of the right way.
