Welcome to 5 star. I moved your post out of general discussion as I don't think you were really asking the question "So, what is the best way to make money online?" but just posting a link.
But my answer to your question is - NOT MLM. Been there, done that, many moons ago. Learned my lesson more times than I can count. If you have to PAY to join a program than typically the only ones to get rich are at the top.
Affiliate marketing is free and a more legitimate way to earn a good income IMHO.
Hi moolamaker,as linda said affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online. Alternatively you could have a go at autosurfs ,check out 12daily and alientrust in my sig below. These can be very profitable if you invest your money wisely. You can also make a little cash without investing any money with paid surveys, paid to read and paid to click . These could turn out quite lucrative if you manage to build a large downline.
Attention: "role based name" email prefixes such as support, webmaster, info, contact, forum, service, affiliate, admin, traffic, partners, marketing, etc., for our member accounts are not permitted. They are acceptable for a vendor listing, but not for the member email. This is due to bulk email processors scrubbing them for delivery due to extremely high bounce rates. Please apply for membership using a personalized email prefix. Something like email@example.com.
If we discover you signed up with a role based name we will give you only one message to change it. After 3 days your account will be removed if the email is not changed.
