I have to admit that I got burned doing this for my first few attempts. But basically this is how it works: you pay the search engines (Google, Yahoo!, Bing) on a per-click basis (usually between $0.01 and $2.00) to display your ads on relevant search engine results. You then use the ads to promote an affiliate product or make some offer where you are paid by commission. For you Facebook users I can guarantee you that the ads you see on the right side of the screen are being done by Internet Marketers who are using this strategy. And if it didn’t make them a lot of money, then you wouldn’t see ads on Facebook or any of the search engines.
There is a fairly steep learning curve for this method, and to be honest I think the best way to introduce you to it is to send you over to this free report that can explain the whole process a lot better. I suggest you take a course because in the PPC (Pay-Per-Click) game you have to front the cash to pay the search engines while you wait for your affiliates to pay you. And if you don’t know what you’re doing, you’ll burn through a few hundred dollars with no sales to show for it. However, this is a very lucrative way to make money online, but you need to be willing to put the time into learning the process.
