Looking for a business online, a Home Business Opportunities or Online Money Making Program? Each Home Business Opportunity below I have some experience with. Also listed are some I recommend to stay away from. As I get time I will expand on my experiences with them. Some are money making and some are useful tools or advertising links. I’ve given them a rough rating on what I think of them. To join any click on the title link or banners.
While you are waiting and sometimes struggling to earn the money from your current activities I thought I would share some of the best opportunities for 2012. These have proven to be worthwhile as they are progressing and paying.
So check them out and hopefully you too can make some money with these. Click on any of the images to join.
TagVillage has grown up. After launching in February 2011 it has steadily been improving and more recently has become much more focused on the business model. Tagvillage
Tagvillage is an online advertising distribution system through which advertisers place advertisements on webpages throughout the World Wide Web, publishers monetize their webpages by publishing these advertisements, and individuals partake in the online advertising industry by trading keywords (Tags) in an exclusive trading exchange.
In January 2012 Tagvillage became the first company to successfully begin paying advertising commissions based on tags that people own. Other companies have trading systems but none have succeeded in paying advertising commissions. February 2012 the advertising widget was launched which allows members to place a widget on their websites or blogs effectively making them publishers. They earn 50% click commissions from clicks to the ads on the widget. Tag owners will earn 20% and people that referred the members that have the widgets or the people paying for advertising on them get 5%. This last part has not been done by other advertising networks.
The company also donates 10% of revenues to causes chosen by it’s members as it is written into their charter that the company has to give minimum of 10% of revenues back to members.
I am part of the Tagvillage Leadership Team and can tell you that this is a very solid company with fantastic ethics and morals. There are companies that put the corporate people first, others that put the shareholders first and Tagvillage puts the members first. Everything is done with the aim of benefiting the members most.
This is not a company that is going to make you rich overnight but you can generate income and as it grows the income will grow with it. Just imagine when it is really growing strong and people are getting 100′s of commissions on their words every day. Even just having one good tag could make people a lot of money every day. This is a fantastic business to be involved with. Great people, great leadership, great company.
RATING – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 9.5/10 (World class devellopers, great leadership, fantastic vision and a multi-billion dollar industry)
Wowwe is an established business that has set up a system for people to build a business around it. There are various products including the video email, video conferencing and auto responder. The compensations involves a 3 x 7 matrix with fast start commissions and generous bonuses. You can get the video emailing free but to take part in the income side you must be a member of the affiliate program which means paying a one time setup cost then a monthly fee for whichever upgrade you go for.
The company has ongoing developments and has just launched the autoresponder. There is a lot more planned for 2012. This is a real business which can be promoted to individuals or businesses just as easily. Definately check it out and sign up for the video email at least. That is free anyway.
RATING - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 9.o/10 (Good product, Good Company and massive growth predicted)
That Free Thing
Everyone likes free stuff and that was proven with the launch of That Free Thing.
With over 47,000 paid members and 600,000 free members it has grown very fast and holds a great Alexa Ranking that seems to be steady as a rock. That is most likely due to people checking out new free offers everyday. The free offers alone are worth more than the membership. For example there has been a few examples of banks giving away free money just for opening an account.
Each country that grows it’s membership to 1,000 becomes fully supported meaning more freebies for it and it’s own section to isolate country specific freebies.
The business side is a 3×7 matrix with matching bonuses that some people have already made 5 figures back on. But the best part is even without that what you can get in freebies is worth it. The cost is $25 to join then $9.95 per month. For the thousands of dollars worth of freebies plus income available to you this is a small cost.
The latest news is that they are launching a blog network and planning on making that part of a 2×14 matrix. It will be interesting to see how fast that grows. It will be $29.95 to join and $19.,95 a month
RATING - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 7.5/10 (Reliable and can get lots of freebies)
Zeek Rewards was a penny auction site that was shut down by the SEC because it was operating as a Ponzi. Basically the members that were putting money in were effectively paying for higher member withdrawals. It was one of the biggest ponzi schemes in history. Many people lost money into the thousands of dollars
RATING – SCAM Shut Down
Kulesearch is another keyword trading platform. It is based on linking keywords to sites to social network searches and other search engines. This is mainly for marketers to get there links out there and I know of people that are making sales because of it. There are some nice features like linking articles with the tags. It may not be as good as Tagvillage but there are some features that make it worth having a go.
RATING - RECOMMENDED 6.0/10 (Always develloping)
10 Million Dollar Blast Club
This is actually a leads company. So you can buy leads from them at basically the cheapest rates online but there is more to it than that. By joining the club by becoming a Pro member for $17 a month you will then get the leads at half price (usually saving more that the membership fee straight away) and you also qualify to be able to refer others and be rewarded.
They also have an autoresponder that you can have the leads placed straight into which is a rare thing online, and usually very expensive. This one you can buy a lifetime licence and do away with monthly fees, plus no restriction on how many emails you have.
You make $5 for each person that you have referred with the 2nd and 4th being passed up. Because you can get leads that means the business is providing you with a source to get your referrals from. You can also use them for other businesses that you like.
RATING – RECOMMENDED 5.o/10
Five Percent Club
This one is for those really chasing the prize. A higher price tag at $299 but once you have 3 members you have made your money back. After you have your 3 members you will need to pay a monthly fee but it is already covered by the commissions you are earning. There is big money to be made with your income increasing by $80 a month for every person that becomes involved down to 3 levels. That is monthly residual income not a one off!They don’t have to be people you referred either, you make the same amount of your referrals referrals and theirs as well.
You also have your own shopping mall that you can earn commissions from as well and that could make you a lot more than the membership commissions. The best part of this is that with only a handful of people you will earn good money. This is one to get in on if you can
RATING – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 7.0/10 (Just get 3 people)
Here is one for those that looked at the price of the last one and skipped through to this one. Only $1.75 to get started and then you use profits to get into the higher levels. With some promotion you could rapidly start earning $5, $10, $20, $40….payments into your alertpay account. By the way as soon as you have one person join you (or put under you from someone above) you will get your $1.75 back. Simple and sometimes the best things are. With each level you open you will earn more and you also have downloadable content that you can access. It is a 4×4 matrix and there is no more benefit to personally sponsoring so you can promote the links of your downline once you have 4 to place people where you want to.
RATING – RECOMMENDED 4.0/10 (Cheap and simple)
The Customer Advantage
The Customer Advantage is attempting to take a concept like Groupon and add compensation to members to make it even better. This means it is free to join and you can earn 5% when anyone that has joined with you uses one of the discounts available to make a purchase. With the discounts being 50% and more there are going to be people using them. Boasting over 82,000 members currently The customer advantage looks to be in a good position to start delivering its discount program. This is still relatively the start though when you consider that Groupon has 40 million members.
Why join, well it’s free so there is nothing to lose. At worst you can take part in the discounts when they are available, at best you can build a network of people and businesses to earn from. Why not give it a go and we will see how it pans out in 2011.
RATING – RECOMMENDED 6.0/10 (Just getting started)
Fusion HQ makes building websites, affiliate programs and sales processes so easy. Click on the banner to see it in action. It isn’t a cheap tool but it is one that the serious marketers will find invaluable, and the newer marketers will find it makes their life a lot easier…and more profitable. This has closed again but I think you can sign up to the waiting list.
RATING RECOMMENDED – 7.0/10 (If it becomes available again IMers should get it)
There is no guarantees of making money however Clickbank is the most popular place to find affiliate products to promote. With a sound record of payments made Clickbank is a must for people looking to promote online.
RATING – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 9.5/10 (Perfect payment record, good choice of promotable products)
Many argue this is number one in email marketing. All serious marketers need an autoresponder and AWeber is top notch.
RATING – 9.0/10 (Must have)
Keyword software 2nd to none. Take advantage of the free trial offer and see how good it really is. Perfect for checking out words for Kooday. Recently been exploring some features I hadn’t used on MS before and the more you use it the more you will realise how good it is. Plus the paid version is heaps cheaper than most other ones on the market.
RATING HIGHLY RECOMMENDED – 9.5/10 (Simply the best for the cost on the paid version and features are fantastic)
Revisitors is a paid for traffic website. You can purchase large amounts of traffic on various plans. If you have a need for promotion Revisitors is worth a try. Results vary depending on what you promote.
RATING – 6/10 (Results Vary)
No Longer Recommended
is a profit sharing program where everyone shares in the profits, even if you do not sponsor anybody. The concept is good and the plan looks sound. This is really new and could go far.
Update 25Mar11: Do not join this as you will not make money. It was something that was good for those in real early but it was a brief time for profitability. It has now died.
RATING – NOT RECOMMENDED
is a simple system that is a rare profit winning one. You are supposed to get members from spillover but I have never seen any despite having a sponsor that markets a lot. I’m in a profitable position but have not seen the money hit my accounts. I can no longer recommend this.
RATING – NOT RECOMMENDED
This was another free powerline setup which then added a mlm to the program. It would have been good for those that have lots of people actualy join the mlm but that rarely happens as the products normally are not worth it.
RATING – NOT RECOMMENDED
was created with the goal of getting Top Internet Marketers together with anyone that wanted to succeed.
Promised so much but never seemed to get off the ground, probably because of the cost. It currently has a social site but that is it.
RATING – NOT RECOMMENDED
ECR as it is known automatically promotes your links 24/7 on autopilot. Add to that a generous referral program that pays $200 commissions. Also check for the awesome one time offer which is worth a lot. Features keep being added the latest being.
After contact with support about the site no longer bringing any traffic to my links I have not had this resolved. As such it is unfortunate that I cannot recommend it.
RATING – NOT RECOMMENDED
Ok this is a program I have had little to do with since joining and hence had little success. It is essentially a listbuilder boasting free viral traffic. Just have to get that traffic started then it is good.
RATING – 5/10 (Free Traffic is Good Traffic)
2×2 Matrix and cheap. There is some free stuff on as well.
Update on this one, I haven’t had any referrals which I find strange but I also tried downloading the free content and some does not work so I’m not thinking to well of this one.
RATING – NOT RECOMMENDED
STAY AWAY FROM THESE PROGRAMS
Viral Cash Gone Wild – Scam in conjunction with ZibZoom
ZibZoom - Scam in conjunction with VCGW
Prosperity Group International - Australian company that offers alerts to bet on market changes. They claim a 96% success rate over a 3 hour period. This is an outright lie and you will lose money hand over fist.
Apex Investments – Another Australian company doing the same as PGI. They claim 80% first hour strike rate. Truth is they don’t even manage 50% and once again you will continually lose money with them.
