If l was starting all over again today l would choose a niche, set up a blog. For those of you that are unaware of the idea of a blog, a blog is basically a website which has a simple interface and allows the owner to upload updates ' in the form of 'posts'. Most blogs are hosted on free web space, with a free URL domain name. Therefore they are completely free to set up. Before you can start making any kind of money from blogging you will need to create some interesting, unique content. Try and be completely original.The next step is to generate targeted traffic to your blog, l personally found this one of the hardest things to do when l first started. This is where a lot of newbie's give up there internet marketing dream because they don't know how to generate traffic. The truth is a lot of marketers we struggle to even get 100 visitors a day to their sites. There are many ways to generate traffic to your blog such as article marketing, blog commenting, social marker, YouTube, forums etc. It's quite simple to generate traffic once you know what you doing. TRAFFIC + CONVERSIONS =SALES
Some gurus will tell you to be successful you will need a massive list but this is not true. You could have a list of 15,000 - 25,000 people (low quality traffic) but if these people are not interested in what you are selling then they won't be spending there hard earned cash with you, you will just be wasting your time. Aim to get targeted traffic who are interested in your product. When you have built a list from your targeted traffic think about what sort of value you can give to your subscribers. Think about the service you can provide to them. My advice to anyone who wants to make a living from the internet is to make sure you value your subscribers as individuals. You will start to gain there trust which means they are more likely to buy products from you in the future.
Setting up an internet business is not rocket science. It is quite simple really, if you looking to make money online by promoting someone else product all you need to know are the basics involved in creating your own website/blog, and generating traffic.
Good luck to your future
