Chances are, when you think of earning money on the Internet you assume you have to directly sell a product of some kind – either digital products or physical products. That‟s just the “normal” scheme of things when you think about earning money online – selling something.
But think about this – if you have a “regular job” offline, and are not already in direct sales, more than likely you are not involved in directly selling a product to earn money.
If you‟re like most workers, you‟re probably trading your skills, knowledge, time, and/or service for an established income – not usually selling an actual product.
For instance, if you‟re an accountant, aren‟t you providing your accounting services and expertise to your employer and your employer‟s clients in return for a given hourly or monthly wage?
If you‟re a cashier at a grocery store, you don‟t actually sell the groceries to the customers by walking through the store with them, making suggestions for their purchases as you go. In this instance, your job is to simply ring up the items purchased and collect money – in return for a given salary. You‟re providing your time and service and being paid by your employer for doing so.
