There has been many useful information in this forum that helped me and many others. So it's time for me to help the newcomers with an easy idea to make money on the internet. There has been discussion in the forum before on this type of topics. But I am going to give you a plan that made me money. Read on....
For me, the easiest way to make money on the web is giving something for free and make money from the ads and affiliate/cpa offers. It can be information, software, entertainment, etc.
So let's make it simple. You need:
Something free to attract visitors
Ads or affiliate offers or both
A marketing plan to bring visitors
A solid overall plan with determination
If you are not a web designer or don't understand how to make a website, I say don't worry. Let's start with something free. There are many options including wordpress and blogger. I prefer Blogger for a good reason. It's has easier interface for new users, even without any knowledge in html. You can choose from different templates and customise them without editing any codes. Yes, you can do much more with some knowledge in design and programming. It's also very easy to place ads and banners on the blog. Bear in mind that you can still find it confusing if you don't have any website knowledge at all. Again, don't worry. Watch some Youtube videos on "how to make a blogger blog", "blogger tutorials"
Trust me, it's not that hard at all. I have learned everything just by reading and watching videos.
Something free to give away:
There are thousands of ideas for that. But let's start with something easy, Something that can attract more visitors with less efforts. Here are few examples: Popular you tube videos, sports news, entertainment news, celebrity scandals, celebrity profiles and photos.
Ok, I am going to pick celebrity profiles and photos as this should be a easy niche in terms of traffic to your blog/website. You can make a post for each famous celebrities with photos and profile. If you are not sure where to get the photos from, just make a search in Google. For example: "free photos Britney spear" and you are all ready to go. Make it look as nice as possible. Get help from anyone you know who can assist you with it. if not, don't worry. Simple one will do.
Ads or affiliate offers or both:
That should be the easiest part. You will be good to go with an account from Google Adsense or Commission Junction. I mention them because they are easier for newbies. Commission junction is one of the top of the industry affiliate network. You won't have access to all the offers/ads because of being a new publisher and minimum sales record requirement from some advertisers. But there will be plenty enough for you to start. Adsense and CJ both are free to join. It might take you few days to a week to get approved from Adsense and instant approval from CJ. Don't apply for Adsense till you have 5 to 10 posts in the blog and write the contents yourself. Don't just copy and past.
Marketing plan to bring visitors
This is with no doubt the most important part for you to consider. You don't need any SEO or article writing skill to bring traffic to this kind of websites. You will use the most powerful but free Technic to get visitors. In social media marketing one lucky day can put a big smile in your face. Forget about using 50 social network sites to get traffic.
I say, just use Facebook. It's big enough to make you big. So how do you get traffic from Facebook? It's easy... You need few accounts with total 5000 friends and trust me it's not that hard. There are many information on the web for this. Read this random short articleand you will know how easy it is. Make your accounts look real. Post status few times a day and chat with people sometime if you can. Now, still if you tell people hey it's my site, come and visit. They will probably show less or no interest.
We will do it in a way that will bring many people to your site without them knowing it's your website. If you notice every post/page in your blog has a option to share in Facebook. If not, watch this video on how to do it. So each of your blog post contains photos and profile of a famous celebrity. When you share them on facebook by clicking the share button, it will be shared with your 5000 friends. There are many celebrity fans out there who will click on the photo and visit your site. Some of them will also share your blog with their friends. In some case, you will end up having a page shared to 50,000 people and yes, it's possible. You see the power...
<> Be like a normal facebook user
<> Also share other things such as news, movie trailars, your mode
<> Don't share posts from your blog all the times. make it look normal
<> Be like a big celebrity fan when you are a money maker
<> Don't share same thing all the times. Update your blog and share
something new every time
<> Be slow while making FB friends. Your account will get banned if it looks
<> Make more than one account. 5,000 friends look really bad on a FB
<> You learn more on the go
Another very effective way bring traffic is forum marketing. It can also be very rewarding. You must know by now how to use a forum. So go to Big boards and find a popular forum on celebrities, movies and off-topic. Be a cool guy/girl there. talk to people, help with information and leave your blog link in the signature. Make it sound interesting such as "20 best photos of Megan fox" or something better than mine.
A solid overall plan with determination:
Now you have all the information to learn and get started without spending a penny. Therefore, I want to leave the overall plan on you. There are thousands of ideas like this. It's only the lack of confidence and activeness can stop you. I will recommend to make a plan for at least three months and work a minimum of three hours a day. I wouldn't really call it a work which can sound boring. It's also interactive when you surf Facebook and make money. It is definitely a good idea for people who don't have enough time, money and knowledge.
Hope you guys find the information useful. I was meant to be in bed three hours ago. So please do correct me for any wrong information here.
