Need College Money? Use The Internet!
By []Timothy A Scott

Are you wondering how you can ever pay for college? Do you need college money in order to be able to attend? You have heard the usual methods... apply for scholarships, apply for grants, and get loans. Some people will also suggest you get a job. But what if you have no time for a job? What if you don't want to go in debt? What if you can't get scholarships or grants, no matter how many you apply for? Then try earning money from the Internet!

There are several ways to earn money online if you need college money. Some include selling on eBay, doing paid-to sites, doing paid surveys, and affiliate marketing. I believe the method with the most opportunity is affiliate marketing. This is because the harder you work at it, the more your efforts are compounded on top of one another to make more and more money.

Affiliate marketing involves three people: a product owner, an advertiser, and a customer. A product owner decides he doesn't want to spend the time, money, or effort it takes to sell his product. So he allows other people to advertise his product for him. These people are called affiliate marketers. They get a website from the product owner, and everytime a customer makes a purchase from their own website, they get a part of the sale. The more sales you make, the more money you get!

So you need to find a product and then promote it. I recommend using or in order to find a product. This two sites have a large database of eBooks (electronic books) that you can sell. The topics of the eBooks range from just about anything you can imagine. So whatever you would like to sell, there is probably an eBook about that topic. So signup for an account to one of these sites and find a good product to sell. Note that you don't have to buy the product to sell it! You can always read what other people say about the eBook in order to promote it!

In order to promote your affiliate website, I recommend you write articles. These articles can be submitted to article directories, and in the author's bio box, you can put a link to a website (some sites allow direct linking to an affiliate site - some only allow linking to a regular website you would have to create). Then, when people click on the link in your article, they will go to your website or affiliate website. If they eventually make a sale, you have found a way to make money without spending money on advertising. Congratulations!

So if you need college money, and have tried the other common ways (and ended up with no extra money....), try affiliate marketing! A little persistence and hard work will go a long way in earning you a lot of needed money!
