How to Make Money in Online Marketing

The key to financial independence is learning how to make money in online marketing to earn consistent monthly passive income.Financial independence is the dream for most online marketers. Once your monthly passive income from your online marketing efforts exceeds your monthly expenses you can say you have achieved financial independence and met your goal. Of course you know that in order to truly achieve financial independence you must discipline yourself to spend much less than you earn and set aside the excess for saving and investing back into your online business. There are many ways to make money in online marketing.  In this post, I will outline a few of those ways.   Some of the ways I will show you will require directly trading time for dollars; others will be passive, e.g. work hard to set up automated online systems and then reap the rewards of your efforts 24/7 without high-maintenance.

After a few years of experience, I learned that the best way...
