I have seen tons of ads about making money at home through google adwords. They say it is as simple as following a cookbook. Is that true? Has anyone had experiences out there that they can explain how it is so "easy" to make money,with that system? Any other bright ideas,that will not cost me money upfront ?

Great questions! I have also seen and heard a lot of people preach about how easy it is to make money with Google AdWords… What many of them fail to tell you is how much it can cost you if you don't know what you are doing, or exactly how to do it.

Firstly, to make money with AdWords you need to be selling something, or promoting something from which you will receive a commission. You need to understand, AdWords themselves cost you money, they are simply and advertisement. You make money using them by driving traffic to a product or service.

If you have a website already, you can make money with Google AdSense, but that is another topic in itself.

AdWords are fairly simple and step by step to open and create, however, the best course of action is to research and learn as much as possible before jumping in. Google have their very own training system to help you. Search Google AdWords Professional Training. Best of all it's free.

All said and done, it is not a quick cash system, but used correctly can be very powerful and profitable.

As for making money without upfront cost, you really need to find a quality product or service to sell or promote, and start by promoting through word of mouth, networks, blogs and articles. Then when you have learnt more about AdWords, try paid advertising such as Pay-Per-Click.

Hope this helps.
