To The Question "How Can I Make Money Online?" Here's My Answer!

by webmarke 53 replies
Every day I come into this forum and read the threads from people who want to make money online. As I read through their post, I have noticed something very telling.

They often ask general questions like..." How can I make money online?"

The question is so general, that it's hard for people to reply with an answer that can help you.

So I decided to create a simple checklist that will help you use this forum properly (if you are serious about making money online).

Note: I created this checklist so that people will stop asking the same general questions and over again. I know some people are too lazy to follow this checklist, but maybe (just maybe) enough people will follow it so that we can stop seeing the same old general questions over and over again.

Note: I am using "Make Money Online" as an example in my checklist below. This would apply to all general questions that are repeated daily on this forum daily.

Step 1 - Do a search on this forum for "How To Make Money Online". You search will yield thousands of answers.

Step 2 - Dedicate some time to read through as many posts as possible until you find something that you think you would like to try.

Step 3 - Do another search in this forum about the money making method that you have chosen in step 1. For example: If you chose to become and affiliate marketer, then you would do another search on "Affiliate Marketing"

Step 4 - Read through the threads about the money making method you searched for in step 3. This will thousands of results in that subject.

In my example for "Affiliate marketing" you will read through hundreds or even thousands of threads about affiliate marketing which will generate new questions that you would need answered.

For example: If you chose affiliate marketing, you would soon learn that you would need to learn about the following subjects to become a successful affiliate marketing..
  1. What affiliate network to join.
  2. What niche to focus on.
  3. How to choose high converting products to sell.
  4. How to promote the affiliate products
  5. Etc...


Step 5 - As you can see...Doing this research will yield more and more questions that you will need answered. You will need to repeat searches for every new question that you need answers for. These answer will yield even more questions. You will then make more searches until you get answers to those questions. And this will repeat itself until you have no more questions about making money online. (Theoretically of course..lol)

Step 6 - Then and only then, if you have a question that you could not find an answer to, you should ask the question in the appropriate forum in the Warrior Forum. Note: You need specific with your questions to get real help.

So..that's the answer to your general question "How Can I Make Money Online"

Do your own research!!!!!

    This, people ask general questions and expect to get a detailed, spoon-fed response which tells them what's the best business for them, and what's the best way they should go about it.

    This thread is "sticky" material, good advice webmarke.

    I thanked and commend your efforts...
    This has been a long standing bone of contention, the half assed, repetitive, nonsense questions that for some reason only appear on IM Forums.

    Maybe it's the fact that the entry level for this type of business is so low that it attracts people who have no business even being online not to mention trying to make money on it...

    Be that as it may, i wish this thread would stop all this or even inspire people to try the search function
    , god forbid even start posting in the correct forums instead of blasting everything onto the Main Forum...

    Unfortunately None Of This Is Going To Happen Now Or Any Time Soon - stupid is as stupid does....

    But thanks for trying...

    - Without spending anything

    A great way to make money online is by generating traffic with blog articles, or marketing products on an affiliate model, then using other techniques to monetize this traffic further. For example; our company can provide surveys which you can offer to your users who then earn reward points, gift cards, etc, to spend at your store. You've increased engagement, added value to your traffic and made money passively in one fell swoop! Pretty cool right?

    webmarke, I've taken shots at some of your posts, but when you do get it right, you get it right. This one got it right.

    The only thing I can add is that sometimes the search function can be a bit wonky. When it does, I get better results with Google using:

    [your search query] site:warriorforum.com

    If you want to restrict the search to a sub-section just add "/[section]/" (no quotes) to the site: url.

    Thanks for the answer!
    Make money online is not easy at all if you are too lazy research! A lot of ways you can make money online but before you jump into this industry, you have to know exactly your purpose by answer this question:"Why would you like to make money online?" This question is very powerful because once you seriously make money online, you will do whatever situation you can face, set up your financial goals as specific as well! Every time you want to give up on the path make money online, look back at your goals, your purpose! It will give you a lot of energy and keep moving on the way you desire!

    For me, there are 2 easy ways you can start make money online right now!

    1. Sell your own products and services.
    2. Sell other people's products and services. (Affiliate Marketing)

    If you're just starting out, I highly recommend you tap into affiliate marketing where you promote other people's products and services.

    It's 10 times easier than creating everything yourself.

    Best wish for you! Don't forget this powerful question:" Why would you like to make money online?"

      Just asking?
      don't you see that you are making my point? I created this post so that people could refer them to it and they would get a quick course on how to use the forum correctly.

      It does no one any good for people to come to this forum and ask the same general questions over and over again.

      Long time members are tired of seeing these same generic questions that can never be answered fully.

      If a newbie comes on this forum tomorrow and ask "How can I make money online" he/she is going to get a bunch of suggestions that they can't possibly implement.

      Why?

      Because the question is too broad. I could tell them to go out an do affiliate marketing, but that would lead them to the next question. And my answer to the next question, would lead them to another question.

      And at the end of the day...Everyone else is doing their research for them and it's not likely that they are going to take action anyway.

      After all...They were silly enough to think that they could come to a forum and ask such a general question and then get a good enough answer to go out and start making money.

      That's seems a little lazy to me.

    I have to add Step 7: Be willing to scrap everything and start all over again when your first idea doesn't work.

    It won't. It never does. And if you're the one-in-a-million who DOES manage to achieve success with your first online venture, you're going to be featured on every podcast, blog, and website for years to come. But for most of us, you try it, it doesn't work, you learn from it, then you either go at it from a different angle or try a different tack.

    Truth is, that's why so few people succeed at this whole Internet business thing. They fail once and give up.

    Nice try, but no one is going to stop posting such type of threads. The reason is there are newbies who doesn't even know the forum functionalities who register to this forum everyday. And then, they also expect someone to catch their hands and take them through the process. So no matter what we do, there will be new posts requesting help for making money.

      That may be true...But the truth is that no one benefits from that except people who are just interested in sig exposure.

      The newbie will never get an answer that he/she can use because their question is too broad.

      Anything that we suggest to them will eventually require them to do research about the subject anyway.

      Or ask another general question..which can't be answered.

      Simply put...These people are doomed to fail if they intend to rely on other people to do their research for free!

      It would help everyone involved...If they knew this!

    The Warrior Forum targets its advertising at the 'Internet Marketing' niche.
    Thousands of new people come into that niche every month.
    They last between 3 months and 12 months, then leave.
    The largest number leave after 3 months, the smallest number after 12 months.
    These people are also the target market of many senior members of Warrior Forum.
    What they will buy is 'Get Traffic' or 'Get Rich' products.
    Therefore that is what they are sold.
    What they needs is 'Basic Internet Marketing' information. They know it,
    but they won't buy it. So they come to this forum to find out what to do with
    the 'Get Traffic' products the senior forum members have sold them.

    Those who ask the general question of ''How Can I Make Money Online'' are obviously clueless of what to do or what's best to do to make money online...

    There are a lot of ways to make money online, but almost all of them won't work If you don't have your own self-hosted website! you need a website to build a list, to promote offers, to get accepted into affiliate networks easily, etc.

    If you have your own website, then the rest will get easier by time.

    Well, the fact that so many people are asking indicates that there is a big problem to solve...

    And there is a LOT of information to sift through.

    I get it--people are overwhelmed, and in some cases are just starting out.

    That they are attracted to Warrior Forum is a testament to WF's being high in SEO rankings for such searches.

    Wishing you all the best.

    Great post for beginners, by the way.

    there is a lot of good info and bad info onhere, I see.

    Basically you just have to test, build a list, and work your ass off to see results.

    Then, after things snow ball, you do not have to work as hard, and things just get better.

    but ultimatly if you are online, and not building a list, you are destined to fail, really bad.

    SO my biggest tip, is focus all your energy and attention to LIST BUILDING.

    It has changed peoples lives.
