How Should I earn my first dollar online?

18 replies
Hello fellow members,

I need your attention so that you can advise me on my online business.
I have been online trying to read each and every material on the internet related to IM for more than 2 good years.I receive about 200 emails per day each promising me heaven on earth so that I can succeed online.
I live in South Korea where I can't access any online marketer besides the ones I get on the internet.

I have spent sleepless nights reading and applying what I read so that I can start earning my first Dollar but all in vain. To mean what I say, I tried to build my affiliate website and I have had it for 2 months now.here it is: My Diet System | Diets To Lose Weight

I hire one virtual assistant to help me in technical skills I don't know.
I have written articles, made affiliate ads from Clickbank, done every thing possible but no way.
Please help me find a simple way of getting my first dollar online.
Thank you so much.

    The easiest way to start making money online is promoting clickbank affiliate programs and buying media. You can promote on Bing, Adwords (it's very hard to get on adwords now), and other PPC platforms like advertising.com.

    A blog, social media profiles, an email list and something to sell.

    That is what my whole online business boils down to.

    Passion for the niche is best as the extra motivation really helps with persistence.

    This biggest issue I see is you don't have an opt-in form, which means you don't have a list. If you've been studying IM for 2 years you should have heard by now "the money is in the list."

    I would suggest you create a free offer on your site (it doesn't even have to be a long report). Maybe even take one of your posts, like "Top 5 Unhealthy Ways to Lose Weight Fast" and turn it into a PDF. Then add an opt-in form that will send that report to them only when they enter their e-mail address.

    Keep collecting email addresses and sending out offers to them. The most important thing is to KEEP BUILDING THAT LIST.

    It shouldn't take much to make few bucks with blog or website if you're able to make interesting content to your audience day after day. Just build your site, use social media to advertise and create quality backlinks. After 3 months you should have enough daily visitors to make money with ads and affiliate programs.

    You need to figure out what makes you different from every one else in your niche. Also, I don't see an opt-in form on your site at all, you should consider putting that up as it was mentioned earlier.

    Also, try to repurpose some of your content on your site to other areas. Take an article and submit it to DocStoc or create a powerpoint presentation of one of your posts and submit it to SlideShare.

    All in all, it takes time to make money. You've only been doing it for a few months and it will take time. Look at your Analytics and see what your visitors are searching for the most or the page they're landing on the most. Then, you could even create a Info Product around that topic.

    Don't give up.

    Focus on getting a 100 visitors to your website per day. I'm assuming that you're probably not getting a decent amount of traffic to your website. Some of my old websites didn't look as good as yours and I was still able to make some sales because I focused on getting at least 50-100 visitors to my website per day.

    Why do people give such useless advice sometimes. Although -- setup a paypal account, setup an ebay account, and Saturday morning wake your butt up and hit some garage sales. Buy $20 bucks in junk and list it on ebay. Doesn't matter if you make a profit.. just do it. If you want to find success in life then don't over thinking it and reading ebooks or trying peoples 'blueprints'. This is your life man -- write your own adventures, build your own blueprints.. and don't buy into any of the hype. Learn the fundamentals of business and being an entrepreneur and that starts with the age old concept of buying and selling. So go and buy something and selling it online and just ponder on it for a quick minute.
