How to make money online

22 replies
To get straight to the point, to make money online you need to solve people's problems.

When people come onto the internet they are looking for a solution most of the time. The most common searches in google are things like 'how to make money fast', 'how to lose weight quickly', 'how to learn programming' or 'how to trade stocks profitably'.

They want the solution to their problem as quickly as possible and in the most consumable way possible. If you want to make money, you need to give them this. People
are willing to pay for solutions.*

If you can offer them a REAL solution then you have a good thing going. When I say real, I mean an actual guide of some sort with practical steps to implement and meaningful advice. If you say that you can show someone how to build a professional website, then your product needs to really SHOW them how to do exactly that. If it just sort of gives a guide on what to do with no real concrete steps, it just isn't going to work for you.

You really need to focus on serving your audience. They will appreciate your efforts and they will repay you for it over time. Often in ways you don't expect.*

The more value you can provide, the more money you will make. The greater the problem you can solve in your market place, the greater your income will be.

This is why it is a good idea to give away free stuff on your sites or blogs. People love free stuff. And if you can deliver really helpful content for free, people will naturally come to your site looking for solutions to their problems (in whatever niche concerned) and they will be willing to pay for products or courses that you offer because they know that you have helped them before and they feel a sense of trust in you.

​​


Instead of focusing on profits, really focus on serving your audience and delivering quality solutions to their problems and you will see that profits will simply be a result of your efforts.

    What you are talking about is exactly why I promote PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers.

    The big advantage is while you say to provide them with free info that helps them and eventually they will buy from you (at least that is the plan). With PPL offers there is no credit card / purchase ever required to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher compared to offers that require a sale to be made.

    I favor offers that have a make, get or save money benefit to them, as they have overall worked the best. They also tend to have the greatest mass appeal (will be of interest to a large general audience), so the potential exists to produce high volume and they are fairly easy to cross promote on the back-end.

    Some of the verticals I have done extremely well with are: education, insurance, loans, debt, credit, mortgage, assistance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc...

    The bulk of the offers that I promote pay around $20-$40 per lead, but I also promote offers that pay more and less. However, you don't want to get caught up solely on what an offer pays because how well it converts is just as important. For example, if you have an offer that pays $9, but if it converts at 2X or more of a $20 offer, then it will perform about the same and possibly better. At the same time, if you have an offer that pays $90 and it converts poorly, it may not even be worth promoting.

    So it's possible to provide free information that users want/need and get paid well doing it / never have to try and sell them anything. It's simply the path of least resistance to generating conversions / $$$.

    The online lead generation is a multi-billion dollar industry. Done right it can be far more profitable than many imagine. Everyone that I know that is in the business and knows what they are doing, for the most part, does 6-7 figures. While that's a huge range, much comes to one's ability to scale and effectively build / manage the infrastructure needed to scale.

    Anyway, something else to consider.

    I absolutely agree about focusing on serving your audience! You need to give them what they need, and meet that need in a satisfactory manner.

    Great post!

    It is all about service.

    We make money by giving value. We profit by serving people generously, through both free content and paid offerings.

    You can't get money by making your energy all about getting. That is why many struggle online. They try to get so desperately that they never give much at all, chasing opportunities, believing that products or services will do work for them when it is the internet marketer who needs to work, and the product or service or marketing channel, well, that never does 1 bit of work at all.

    I love MMO by being of service. Thinking of problems and matching content and premium product solutions with these problems, to solve the problems and to ease my customer's pain points.

      If everyone would understand the words in this post trust me it would save them years and tons of money online. This is the "big" secret of internet marketing which a lot of people don't get. When most people come online the only thing they are thinking about is how much money can they make quickly. They don't even take the time to actually do what a business does and actually help their customers to solve problems their problems.

      Learn to solve the problems of real people and you'll have more money than you know what to do with.

      Give first.

    Solid post Josh. It's all about bringing value to the marketplace. At the end of the day you don't get paid for time, but for the value you bring to the marketplace. Sadly so many people struggle to make it online because their focus is on the wrong thing.
    Great article joshdn10

    Solid post Josh.
    The value we bring to the marketplace is what the marketplace pays us for, not the time we exchange. It is vitally important to understand this.

    I am a fan of Brian Tracy and in one of his videos he discussed on the exact same topic. People have problems and if you want to make money just find out the solution of that problem. As much solution as you can make, as much money you can earn.

    To make money online, you have to understand the very basic underlying philosophy for Internet marketing. You're not selling a product or a website or an eBook. You're selling an experience that the people cannot get anywhere else.
    Thanks
