Tell me how do I make Money Online         – without being scammed?

How to Make Money Online Scam Free

How to make money online scam free is something everyone wants, the answer to.

Unfortunately more often than not, the answer given is the promotion of the illusion that easy overnight riches is possible if we only knew the inside secret. Or worse we get suckered into another type of B.S. online scam.

This type of misinformation and activity all but destroys the credibility of the internet marketing industry.


Dishonesty and snake oil type salesmen seem to reign supreme in the online world when anyone seeks to uncover the answer to that question.

Genuine, honest, hard working people are getting scammed every day online as they earnestly  seek a better way to make a living, are searching for a better way of life or an improvement to their standard of living whilst pursuing their internet lifestyle dream.

Is it a Dream?

Do people really make money online? Yes, absolutely and it’s a lot easier than you think. But the first thing you need to do is to forget about the notion of “making easy money overnight” That is not a helpful mindset to begin your new ‘internet’ life with. We need to dismiss that idea immediately.

This is what the internet ‘Guru’s‘ and the online scammers want you to believe so they can soften you up, so you will fall for their empty promises of easy wealth using their ‘secret discovery’ or special ‘software’ or easy seven step ‘formula’ to instant internet riches.

The Simple Truth

It’s an unfortunate fact that scam artists prey on people’s hopes and dreams. They tell us what we want to hear, that it is possible to create an instant internet lifestyle and become rich overnight, without much effort (other than clicking a mouse). Rather than the simple truth, which is that it takes ‘work‘ to be a success.

Instead, they sell us a fantasy because we believe in the foolish notion that perhaps you can “make easy money overnightif we just do what they tell us. To be brutally frank, what they are saying is actually true, they really do.

Here’s why

You buy into their story, give them your money and they have just “made easy money overnight”.  But I’m sure that’s not quite what you expected to find out about how they actually make their money. You probably thought you would get something of value in exchange for your hard earned dollars.

Apart from a few changes in one form or another the process of “making easy money overnightis pretty much the same. Tell a good story, blend in some elements of truth, use a bit of emotional psychology, tell people what they want to hear and you have the makings of a perfect online scam, that can make you easy money. 

How to Really Make Money Online

Peter V Crisp

… “It’s not like that! – The above scenario, at best, is a short term, limited thinking, lazy con-man, B.S. type approach that is dishonest. This is not in any way what I am advocating, endorsing or even suggesting you ever do. There is a much better, sustainable and far more honest way to make great money online over the long term”.

Here’s what you need to know. Most people searching online are not looking to buy anything, they don’t want to be sold anything. Instead, they are searching for information.

They are becoming weary of giving out their email address because more often than not they get spammed in return or end up on some gurus list to then be bombarded with offers of making easy money overnight

What People Want

People want meaningful quality content, accurate up-to-date information, help, assistance, and direction. They want good advice and solid recommendations. They are looking for someone they can trust, information and advice that is trustworthy. Statements that can be relied upon. A breath of fresh air. Not a sales pitch.

To Make Money Online

(To see how I made this video; see tools)

Making it Happen

We need three things;

  1. A Desire to help other people
  2. The Right Tools 
  3. An Education

1. The first one we have discussed already, people don’t want to be sold, they want to be informed and respected.

2. The Right Tools. Whether you are building a website from scratch, trying to get traffic to your existing site or just searching for Keywords…it all starts with keyword research and of course, the question often asked is what’s the best keyword tool? 

Knowing the words your target audience uses to search online is an important aspect of any keyword research and is an important element to ongoing online success. Having a keyword search tool to do this analysis is important if you want to get a good ranking in Google.

Fortunately, we can show the best SEO research tool to use, one that helps me to often get page one rankings. You can learn more about this awesome tool from my post; Keyword Research Tool Review

3. An education. Unlike a formal education like schooling where everyone learns the same basics of reading, writing and math. It’s not the case for the internet. Sure many people can use a mouse, turn on the computer and send an email but after that everyones level of education is different.

What Type of Education?

Some can do sophisticated programming and graphics, others know specific programs inside out because they use them every day, while others know a little about many things and others still, know many things about very little. The variation of education in terms of the internet is enormous.

Many well known and successful internet marketers are no different and have learned about internet marketing, not from any formal learning platform. But rather by trial and error, from their own experiences and from learning-on-the-job, so to speak.

So, they have learned (got an education) about online marketing and now know exactly how to make money online. 

Their success is in fact proof that making great money online is a reality. If only we had their level of education then we too could do the same thing. 

You Can Get It

Fortunately we can get this type of education, if we know where to look.

Understand that there are many opportunities being promoted on the the internet these days, the trick is to avoid the many scams that are out there, not usually an easy thing to do but I have found an exceptional program that I highly recommend for you irrespective of your current level of online education.

Prior to undertaking this training myself, I had spent years trying to figure it all out on my own. I even had over a dozen websites, all failing to rank on Google and despite the many promises and up-grades from various ‘Gurus‘, I didn’t make a single penny. But it cost me plenty in terms of lost time and wasted money.

Getting Started

Wealthy Affiliates’ is different. It is a straight forward, honest, down-to-earth membership program, created by online marketers for online marketers and it won’t cost you a fortune nor have you continuously buying ‘upgrades’ and ‘extras’ like so many other programs.

In fact, you can begin for free and stay a free member for as long as you like. It is well worth a few minutes of your time to explore this awesome community further. There is nothing like it anywhere.  

Getting an Education is Easy and Free

We are often told there is no greater gift than knowledge… But an even greater gift would be when that knowledge gives you the wisdom that enables you to achieve both financial success and personal freedom. 

That’s what an education from Wealthy Affiliate could do for you. But don’t just take my word for it. You can try it out yourself, without spending one red cent. This is the only program you can join and try out first, without needing your credit card.


This is why I recommend wealthy affiliate. You not only get a great education and advanced knowledge about website construction, content creation, the right internet tools & marketing strategies. You also get lots of support and quick answers to all your questions from within the community and it’s free, until you decide that it’s the right place to be.

This is where you will learn how to create a website and earn money. This is where you can begin your successful online wealth creation journey. This is where you will learn exactly how to really make money online scam free.

    Hey Peter,
    Thank you for taking the time to educate people about making money online, these day most blog you read online is about making tons of money in no time by doing nothing.

I find that it is important to get the right education like what you have mentioned and not fall for shiny objects that claim riches.

I think it’ll resonate with many people as so may of us have come across money making scams and it’s so discouraging.

    Peter when I was searching online for a work from home program last year, I went into it with lots of skepticism. I had read it all before and was starting to believe that everyone out there was dishonest and that having an online business was just a dream that would not come true.

    Your article is very honest, concise and well-written with tons of make sense info. .Your commitment and sincerity show through in your writing. I like how you transition and show your readers an option or alternative to help them in their search for online success.

    Very much enjoy your posts. You have one of the best sites on the net.

    Love your no nonsense, honest approach to marketing. Too many people want to get rich quick and the truly honest programs don’t work that way. It’s nice to find a program that WILL work but makes it clear that you will have to work and commitment to the venture. Keep up the informative blogs!
