Learn How To Make Money Online
I will discuss information and affiliate websites first and then I will discuss product websites. The reason I will discuss information and affiliate websites first is because there is very little in way of set-up costs.
With information websites, you generally make money from Google Adsense. Google Adsense Ads are free to place on your website.
With affiliate websites, you generally make money from the commission you receive for selling someone else’s product. For example, clickbank has thousands of affiliate products you can sell and receive 50% to 75% commission. There is no cost involved with Clickbank affiliate products. You simply promote the products and receive a commission when someone buys that product from your website.
With product websites, you will need to spend more time and money to create your product and website.
You can set-up an information website relatively quickly. The following steps are a brief overview of how to set-up an information website.
1. Find a Profitable Niche
There are three ever-green markets where you can find profitable niches – health, wealth and lifestyle. For example, you may want to create a website about your favorite holiday destination (lifestyle). You may want to create a website that provides information about making money online (wealth) or a website about fitness (health). Whatever you do, choose a topic that you are passionate about and start providing information.
2. Create a Website
Creating a website really comes down to your technical skills. If you are new to creating websites, then I would encourage you to consider WordPress.
What is WordPress? WordPress is an online, open source website creation software. It is free and you can download WordPress and upload it to your web-hosting.
With WordPress you can access many free themes. However, purchasing a WORDPRESS THEME is to your advantage because they usually provide in-depth instructions to customize your website or blog.
3. Drive Traffic To Your Website
This is the most difficult part of the process – getting people to your website. You can create a great information website; however, if you cannot drive traffic to that website, then your income will be minimal.
There are different ways to drive traffic to your website. I prefer not to pay for traffic; therefore, I usually drive traffic to my websites using Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Article Marketing (Blogging) and Social Networking – Facebook, Google Plus, twitter, etc. etc.
There are different ways of going about setting up affiliate websites; however, the following five steps are some suggestions you can follow.
1. Find a Profitable Niche
Finding a profitable niche is the first step. There are three ever-green markets where you can find a profitable niche – health, wealth and lifestyle.
2. Create a One Page Website
The idea behind the one page website is to build a list of customers.
3. Build Your List
To make money online from affiliate marketing, you must have customers. Therefore, it is imperative that you build your list. Usually you build a list by giving something away for free. It can be a simple e-book relating to the product you wish to sell.
4. Sell Related Products To Your List
Once you have a list of customers, you can promote related products to your customers.
5. Send Traffic To Your Website
To learn how to make money online, you must work out the most difficult part of the process – getting people to your website. There are really only two ways to drive traffic to your website – free traffic or paid traffic. You can use Google Ads or Facebook Ads (paid traffic) or you can use free traffic via google search (SEO), social media (Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, Etc.) and article marketing (blogging).
There are many and varied products you can sell on the internet. However, I will explain product websites by focusing on selling an e-book.
1. Create an E-book
E-books are the easiest and cheapest way to see if you have what it takes to sell products on the internet.
You can either write and e-book yourself or you can get someone to write an e-book for you for a small cost.
2. Create a Website
You can create a one page website or build a larger website around your product.
I sell two e-books on a website with two hundred or so web-pages. I get a lot of free traffic to the website because of the information that I provide. People see the e-books and decide if they want to purchase them or not.
3. Drive Traffic To Website
As I have said, there are only two ways to drive traffic to your website – paid traffic or free traffic.
Generally, paid traffic converts better than free traffic. People usually click on ads because they are looking for specific products to purchase.
To learn how to make money online takes time. In many ways, you learn as you go, and most of all, you must have fun doing it.
