      Pick a niche market.

      Create a product or get someone to do that for you.

      Build a blog and a capture page and start learning how to drive TARGETED traffic to your blog and capture page to BUILD A EMAIL LIST.

      Once you have people on your email list you need follow up emails that will go out and give good value to the people who signed up.

      Give them free valuable information and then after a while shot in a email which sells your product or service.

      ALWAYS give more free value than you sell to your email list. Always remember that.

      PS. Look in the WSO section of this forum to fine lots of quality products which will teach you how to do all this stuff. And you will find lots of quality products on how to get targeted traffic.

      I'm afraid you just have to get your head down and learn all this stuff. Its never going to be get rich quick but your in the right place to learn thats for sure.

      Good Luck

        Whatever you do, learn how to drive traffic. Learn where you can get it from and learn what makes it convert the best. Look at the psychology of human behaviour. If they see something they don't like, they recoil. So it is in the online world. If you spend money driving traffic to a squeeze page they don't like, they will bounce off it and you have lost them. Gone. Off to give their money to someone else.

        IMHO, if you think like a search engine, you have embraced the most successful online business model. Why? Think about this. If you send a visitor to a place with 1 choice and they don't like it, you've lost them forever. If you adopt the search engine mentality, the visitors might bounce off the first choice you present them with....... but they return to the search engine and try another option. And so the process repeats until the traffic does find what its looking for. And that is how you make money online. Check the sig.

        Good luck in 2012

        I disagree with this statement "ALWAYS give more free value than you sell to your email list. Always remember that"

        Why?

        Because now you are training your subscribers to be freebie seekers. This is not the way to make money online. Yes you should provide value at first, but follow it up with suspense by selling them a good product not just more free products

      That was about as good a response as I've seen. It sounds simple, but really that is the crux of it. Nice one Kevin.

      I would add... be very careful about who you choose as a mentor, and that you are getting the kind of help you expected... and that they are going to show you a way of doing business that makes the world a better place.

      After 2 years 3 months of research... I found alternative's for essential tools (like gotowebinar, camtasia, survey monkey and many more) that are just as good as the ones you've heard about, but cost a ton less!

    I picked a niche and then put up a squeeze page, built a list and promote affiliate programs and other things that are of real value to my list and I offer them other real value myself too.

    Once I started doing this exclusively, I made money in a few days.

    Once I got a system down and was making what most would consider a decent monthly income, I repeated it and then once I was making more money, I started improving it and getting some help doing certain tasks using virtual assistance.

    Now, I'm improving upon my niche research and also on getting even faster more targeted traffic.

      Affiliate Marketing is by far the quickest way to make money (i know your question is not asking what is the quickest) but i just had to add that.

      Like it has been said time and time again: BUILD A LIST. With this you can do so much. You will have a dedicated list of prospective buyers whenever you have a offer to present, however the key is providing value, value, value and then you sell.

    One of the Mistakes that many Marketers both successful and unsuccessful marketers, Make,
    is they often tend to put the cart in front of the horse. I have seen this behavior from some of the big name marketers, the hype kings if you will.

    I have seen this behavior in many instances on products being marketed online, one of the most egregious sins of marketing is to create a product without doing the research first, (research is one of the most valuable services you can offer online)

    Many Marketers do not have the time or do not take the time to do the research before creating a product, one recent product that fits this example perfectly was marketed on a website, offering Medical Doctors, website services, the product was a nice product, however, because of HIPPA related legal issues, the product was open to federal law suits, (imagine the legal implications if you went around and sold a Doctor, a website, and it was hacked, next thing you know the feds show up and want to have an 8 hour "discussion" with you the end of which you ask for a Lawyer.

    At the end of this horror story, you will end up selling your home and every thing you own to stay out of jail, likely you will end up being convicted of a felony, loose your right to vote, be unable to obtain credit, and a host of other issues that would drive any man insane in short order.

    After all that, expect to be served with a civil suit to pay for the legal services the Doctor had to pay to defend himself for the same charges, $175,000.00 easy if not more.

    That is if your lucky, sure the example is extreme, but not out of this world extreme.

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...ztmhJQ&cad=rja

    See, when you look at the situation a little research would have eliminated or greatly reduced the risk associated with this kind of issue, there are a few things that can be done, to secure a website, but in this case, there was no provision to comply with HIPPA rules and federal regulations.

    Simple really, just one hour of research would have been enough but so often marketers fail to do that one small thing,

    And were talking about Super Gurus, people that should know better, do this all the time, they get an idea for a product turn it over to an assistant, and they move onto the next project, never realizing that they could be opening them selves up to serious legal issues, and this is just one small example, there are tons of them out there,

    If you want to break into making money online, learn how to do research, once you gain knowledge, you can become educated, (don't make the mistake that some do and think that because they read someones Ebook that makes them an expert)

    Knowledge does not make you an expert but it does make you a better marketer.

    I’d say start with affiliate marketing but keep in mind that the real money is made with your own products. Don't let the stiff competition in affiliate marketing scare you away. There are some strategies you can use to effectively find your feet in this.


    1. Choose a good product to promote
    Do not make the common mistake of selling the popular products everyone else is selling. Do a simple research first to know if the product is in demand in the market. Also, make sure that the product you'll choose is of good quality.


    2. Do some pre-selling
    Most affiliates conduct pre-selling to qualify the leads they will be referring to the merchant's page. This will increase conversion rates because only interested individuals will see the sales page. One thing you can do here is to buy the product you are promoting, and write an honest review about it.


    3. Be capable enough of driving traffic to the merchant's sales page
    This is basically the most difficult task you’ll face. In doing this, you should decide first how you will attract traffic towards your affiliate website. You can go for paid advertising or you can spend time creating authority sites that are content rich and with affiliate advertising placed within them. It is good if you can use both strategies.
    The nature of the traffic you drive to your affiliate site also matters. You should be able to send highly-targeted traffic, or else, your conversion rates will not be sufficient to cover the cost of advertising.

    The best way to ensure continuity with this third task is to build a list of all the visitors you get from day one.

  • If you want to earn money fast, offer your services online. You can go for writing or web development. Be sure you are good at what you are doing and not just be one of those people out there who try everything and good at nothing.

    If you are keen on having passive income, you need to put all the hard work at the beginning, do affiliate marketing, and start reaping the benefits in few months or within a year or two. This depends on how well you do.

  • Hello there! One of the first steps for affiliate marketing is knowing your target audience. By this, join forums where they mostly gather and learn how to drive your traffic there through SEO. This may require a lot of effort but surely it will gain you a lot.

    I have to agree with Tim, but I wouldnt use the word "research", because people research for months and get so invested in an idea because its "supposed to" work according to their research, that they end up selling their home before they stop kicking a dead horse.

    They put too much stock in their research.

    I would replace that word with "testing", and that is simply putting little sparks out there to see what starts a fire every day... an ounce of testing is worth a pound of research.

    The practice of the worlds largest retailers for instance is to test a product in a couple of stores and only roll it out nationwide if its a hit.

    That keeps them from selling their farm and rolling out things every day spending millions of dollars based on some college kids research.

    You make money online by selling something.

    Sell your own service
    Sell an affiliate product
    Sell your own product
    Etc.

    Use the internet as a tool to reach more people but remember it all just comes down to selling.

    Traffic + Conversions = $$$

    My two cents worth.
    Finding your own niche is very important. Something that interest you, that you have a passion in, then you will not feel that you are "working".
    Competition is strong outside, providing high value and unique goods/services to consumers out there will definitely help a lot.

    Making money online can be tough only when you do not know what you want and what you need to do.

    Learning and investing (time and money) is inevitable, study what WORKS and not the fastest way to make money online as usually, those methods don't really work out well.

    in very simple words...

    1. find a profitable niche
    2. build a list of interested people in that niche
    3. promote products to that list


    Of course, there's a lot more that goes into that...you also of course want to add value to the IM sphere and the people on your list.

    It's not the best way but it certainly is the quickest way to make money through Internet Marketing and that's offering a service.

    I think the reason so many people like it is because with just about all services you can offer the only investment needed is your time, and thats something plenty of newbies are willing to sacrifice to earn some money.

    Then you've got the dilemma of Online/Offline. Of these two, the easiest is by far Offline, way less competition and businesses these days are in desperate need of anyone with experience of internet marketings' help.

    So the fastest way to make money through Internet Marketing it Offering a service Offline, but as I said before this should only be the start. The BEST way is by far Online Aff. Marketing or Product Creation.

    Immediate Money --> Services (Go to fiverr of course and check on what things u r good at !!)

    Affiliate marketing is of course good but its may take a bit more time , also you need to plan as if you are running a business and then structure as this though will take time in the beginning will lead to long term success


    product creation --> natural extension to aff marketing , you keep bulk of the profits and let others worry about sending you traffic..

    I think this is the most common method taught to make money online on autopilot:

    1. Setup a blog with a niche that you are interested in.
    2. Do keyword research to look for keywords with high search volume but low competition.
    3. Write articles or outsource your articles based on those keywords for onpage SEO purpose.
    4. Build backlinks to your website for offpage SEO purpose.
    5. Find relevant products to promote as an affiliate on your website.
    6. Create a free ebook for your Opt-in page to build a list of subscribers.

    Hope this helps.

    Pick a niche, then visit forums around that niche. See what their pain points are. Once you know that you can either build a list by create a free report which helps to solve their pain points, they have to opt-in to get once you start getting people on your list promote other peoples product around the niche from clickbank or JVZoo (affiliate marketing). Or you can create a product that solves their pain points and sell it to them.

      Emphasis on affiliate marketing with SEO. Just pick big niches then search for long tail keywords with low competition. I don't use a keyword tool to tell me which keywords are best, because you have to do that thinking yourself.

      Most of a businesses mechanics can be figured out through common sense. Don't fall for most of the automated crap. The last software I bought for my business was directly to manage my sites. It has nothing to do with analyzing or market research at all.

      Lots of great advice here.

      As far as services vs. affiliate marketing goes, do both. Just realize that the money is much more likely to flow in quickly with services, so start there and ramp it up.

      Figure out what you're good at and what you are willing to do for others (website design, writing, bookmarking, etc.) and start offering your services (for example in your signature line).

      And why not consider a "Warrior for Hire" offer.

      And while you're at it, why not pick a couple of affiliate products you really like and start promoting those as well.

      Or do one at a time, depending on time availability.

      Good luck!

    If you already have a website or blog with quality content and you're looking to make money with minimal further work beyond what you do now, I would suggest becoming a tradebit affiliate.

    Up to 70% commission on sales (I make even more as a combined merchant and affiliate). They have easy to use widgets and even a check out and cart function, all of which are free. It was also free for me to sign up with my Facebook account. I incorporate lots of different tradebit products from music to eBooks on my site, and I think buyers aren't put off from my more 'ad-like' buttons.

    I have also used commission junction extensively, but I get less sales via this avenue.

    Ultimately, it depends on what you want to sell though! Best of luck!

    This is an old topic, yet its fun because you can get something new: new idea, new method, new reference. This is just general answer, and not secret at all:

    - Find a niche, maybe a market based niche, or passion based one
    - Look for a potential market. Find any problem related to your niche while you researching it.
    - Make your own product that can solve their problem.
    - Make an original website or blog to help promote your new born website.
    - Study SEO and how to make your website popular in search engine.
    - The last but no least, DO PPC CAMPAIGN!

    I hope it help mate!

    Firstly, try to find a niche with little competition and good search volume. Direct you attention on 'how to...' niches! Find out what problems people might have in that niche and provide them a solution.
    It would be smart thing to check if they are buyers too.
    The next thing is building a landing page with a subscriber form. You can offer free product(video, pdf, course) to build a list. Try to educate your subscribers and give them value to build trust.
    And then slowly and gradually offer people on your email list affiliate products.

    I provide eyeballs to other's digital products. When the product sells, I take a cut.

    Why do they do this? Because they are experts in their digital products and don't necessarily have a passion for building a site and driving traffic to it, figuring out how to make automated payment/download systems. They just want to build the product and sell it.

    1.Pick a product from the Clickbank marketplace
    2.Use the product yourself
    3.Do a review of the product you just bought (this is your YouTube video)
    4.Do some heavy backlinking to your video (Fiverr gig,Magic Article Submitter,Senuke,etc...)
    5. With some real heavy backlinking you'll get your video to rank high on google
    6. Watch those affiliate commissions come rolling in

    Providing services (depends upon your skill set). For eg:
    a) Customer support
    b) Virtual assistant
    c) Web development

    Affiliate marketing:
    a) Choose a niche market.
    b) Build a website and promote affiliate products.
    c) Create an optin page to collect email address in return for a free eBook.
    d) Market affiliate offers to the subscribers using an autoresponder.
    e) Focus on getting targeted traffic to your website.

    Hope that helps...

    Personally I create very keyword targeted small websites that I have been able to get ranked on google, yahoo and bing in the first 3 position for a certain keyword.
    In saying that this is not as easy as it sounds and I will be soon releasing a product that will explain all this in detail.

    Once I create these sites I then promote a particular product as an affiliate.

    Then I work on getting more visitors to the site.

    I repeat this process over and over and it does generate me a good income but with lots of persistence, trial and error.

    Most importantly try to solve someones problem be it article marketing, site creation or what ever medium you plan on using and once you do then the traffic and sales will come. When you find some thing that work just repeat, repeat, repeat.
    Also I always try to generate subscribers to my lists, every visitor to my site will either get some good information, sign up as a subscriber or purchase an affiliate product. In the end I have always helped them in some way and an email list can be used later on to generate immediate traffic or sales but don't spam your list with crap give them lots of cool free stuff.

    When I was a newbie, I relied on other marketers ideas such as ebooks, wso, and forums. Even though some or many of these strategies may not work the best, but I was able to at least take pieces of marketing strategies from each person and puzzle the strategies together to for my own marketing niche. Because I constantly test test test. I make more money for doing so.

    4. Promote other people's products or your own
    5. Rinse and Repeat

      This.

      There are lot of other ways too. I was making enough with Adsense last year to pay the rent and buy my lentils, rice, vodka and pizza - until Penguin came along. I also made some money by placing free classified ads of fictional girls in bikinis who were "looking for a boyfriend" and then having guys sign up to AdultFriendFinder under my aff link.

      But the 5 steps mentioned above are what you should be doing for a long term, stable income.

    Most of my online income is earned by performing services. I do domain research for a company, then I write for doctors' and fitness experts' websites for $10 per 100 words, sometimes more; then I make a little off of PLR I sell. That's about it.

    There are ton of ways to make money online but focusing on one tactic at a time is key to actually succeeding in any field. And Most Importantly...Build A List!!!

    -Then find a keyword to match the offer
    -Then rank the site on the first page of Google in 1-2 days in most cases

    Research a Niche, Find out what problems they have, create a product to address those problems, write a great sales letter, create a WSO (offering PLR if it's not in the IM Business), then after that dries up an FSO, then move the product to Clickbank and the other Affiliate Networks, then place it on Amazon and Ebay - forget about traffic (let others take care of that)
    -or-
    Create an eBook full of real valuable content recommending Affiliate products as resources to put the system into play, create an opt-in page and give it away using solo ads, newspaper advertising, magazine advertising, post cards or SEO and then follow up with backend products.

    I hope this helps

    The Money is in the list!!!

    Heard it many times, and is very true. You need a lead capture page, a decent auto responder and a product to promote, weather it be your own or one your advertising for commission.
    you could buy solo ads( pay someone to use their list, and hope they join yours.) has mixed results but can be very beneficial.
    Join As many Facebook groups as you can in the same niche and post daily. This is time consuming and only seems to get results, or optins for MLM programs and HYIPs(don't recommend HYIPs as they always fail), but results are results.
    I Use Classified ads, craigslist etc. not to sure of the results here, but any exposure is a plus right?

      Mathewsps,
      i love the idea of embarrassing niche because if you ever Google search these things people are definitely looking for what ails them. Always great to be reintroduced to this! I enjoy blogging and found blogs to be great sources for the search engines. headlines become part of the url's and so proper keywords get the bots attn and along with on page seo....very easy ... you can get them liking your site and placing you on top pages.
      5 word keyword is excellent! especially in embarrassing niches. with a keyword that long it is inevitable that your phrase will rank for the keywords found within that 5 word keyword.
      interesting to sell once you see your page decline.
      how do you track that info the easiest?
      are there any free tools for that?
      where have you found the most success to find buyers for the site at that point?
      good info and thought provoking mathewsps,

    As simple as 1,2, and 3.

    1. Search for reliable, proven and tested sites that provides online/ offline tasks. (e.g. onlinejobs.ph, odesk or freelancer.com).

    2. Register to job sites, apply on tasks that fits your skills and look for starred employers (not to be scammed, just like had happen to me)

    3 Lastly, be diligent, honest, consistent to each contract agreed with the employers..

    And BOOM!!! Money is there..SALARY,,SALARY,,SALARY..

    I started off buying re-sellers rights which in effect gave me 100% commission selling someone else's products. I did not have much experience about making money online so I bought an eBook on how to make online profit.

    At that time Google Adwords were much cheaper than now but what sales I may have made did not cover my ad costs, so that did not last very long.

    Since then I've tried affiliate marketing using ClickBank, and other similar services. All with the same result - sales did not cover ad costs.

    I bought courses on making money using Facebook, again using affiliate products - same result - ad costs not covered by sales.

    Recently I invested in a joint venture (JV) partnership and Whooppee for the first time in 10 years income generated covered ad costs by far. By the way the JV partnership includes training in online marketing, developing my own products and much, much more.

    My experience is that a shortcut to really making money online lies in a carefully selected JV Partnership.
