How Far Are You Willing To Go To Make Money Online?

Written by George Manty  · November 7, 2007

Before you decide how you are going to make money online, you need to know how far you are willing to go to make money online.

What are your limits?

Until recently, I haven’t clearly defined how far I am willing to go to make money online. Sure, I have had some general guidelines, but over the years I have been asked to do some things that have been on the borderline of what I am personally comfortable doing.

From now on, before starting any online project I will ask myself:

“Is this method of making money something I feel comfortable sharing with my children, my friends, my family, and others?”

If I am embarrassed to tell my kids what I do to make money online, then I am not going to do it. For me that rules out a lot of things (splogs, some affiliate marketing strategies, gambling, prescription drugs, p@rn, etc.). However, there are a lot of ways of making money online that it doesn’t rule out.

How far would you be willing to go to make money online?

If you knew you could make a really good living, by setting up black hat SEO sites, would you?

What about p@rn? If you were guaranteed to make a million dollars, would you set up a p@rn site?

What about “burn” sites? Would you be willing to tell someone they will win a free ipod if they just follow five easy steps… The first four are easy steps that put money in your pocket through CPA (Cost Per Action) affiliate marketing and the last “action” is purchasing a new car through your affiliate link that pays for the ipod and then some?

I have learned a lot of ways to make money online, but a lot of those ways I am not comfortable with. You need to set your limits up front, otherwise you might wind up creating an online business that you regret.

    Great food for thought. I am of the mind that money earned through deception or even with greed in one’s heart is ill-gotten money, but I know that a lot of people might disagree with that. I’m just starting to look into affiliate marketing, and there’s just so much information out there. It’s hard for a new person to weed out the ideas that aren’t on the up-and-up.

    It is hard to weed out ideas that aren’t on the up-and-up, very true. It’s even harder when there are so many obvious gray areas…
