The Top Four Ways to Make Money Online
By: © Trent Brownrigg
It seems as though making money online is something everyone
wants to do these days. It's understandable due the huge amounts of
money that can be made online and the fact that you get to work for
yourself while doing it. But what can you do to make money
online? Well, this article is going to reveal the top four online
money making methods that I have found to date. These are not get
rich quick schemes. They are proven online money making methods, and
if you put sufficient effort into these avenues of money making
online, you will find success.
So, here are the top four ways to make money online:
1) Marketing Information Products
This is the favorite of many and definitely one of the best ways to
make a lot of money online. Creating and selling your own
information product such as an ebook can make you a lot of money in a
relatively short amount of time. Once you have created and started
marketing your product, it can be sold over and over again for
years. The best part is that you make 100% of the money from sales
and your customers can download the ebook as soon as they buy it, so
you don't have to worry about any inventory or shipping costs. I
suggest every person who wants to make money online have at least one
information product being sold at all times.
2) Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing allows you to start making money online without
having to create any products or services of your own. Instead, you
market other people's products and services. Affiliate marketing is
great because it is so fast and easy to get going. You can literally
be in business for yourself, marketing products as an affiliate in a
matter of minutes. Now, actually getting sales and making money as an
affiliate marketer may not be quite as easy but it's not exactly hard either.
Being an affiliate marketer can easily supplement any product or
service you are already selling, so if you are not doing this you are
literally leaving money on the table. Affiliate marketing can
provide instant profits but you should take your time when choosing
companies to promote because commission percentages range widely. One
company may only offer a 5% commission per sale, while another
company may offer 75%. Usually the higher, the better.
3) Google Adsense
Adsense is a program that places relevant ads on your site and you
are paid each time the ads are clicked by your visitors. The ads are
created by Google Adwords advertisers and you get a percentage of the
price they pay for the ad each time someone clicks on it. If you get
a lot of traffic to your site you can make a lot of money with
Adsense. I recommend doing some research on Adsense before you start
using them because there are a lot of tactics you can use to
drastically increase your profits.
4) Joint Ventures (JV's)
Joint ventures are another great way to make a lot of money online
fairly quickly. I find that joint ventures usually work best with
information products. But it doesn't have to be an information
product; you can do joint ventures with basically any product.
This tactic simply involves partnering with key individuals in the
same or similar niche as you. You want them to have websites that
receive much more traffic than your own and they will likely have a
large opt-in mailing list. All you have to do is approach these
individuals and make a proposal. Keep in mind they get approached
often so you will have to give them a lot of value and be very
professional. I find that giving them more profits than you keep
works well. Again, the more generous your offer, the more likely
they will want to partner up with you.
Imagine the power of doing a successful joint venture with someone
that has an opt-in mailing list of 75,000 loyal subscribers. All
they have to do is send out a message to their list with a
recommendation of your product and a link to your site. If you have a
compelling sales page and your product is high quality, you will most
likely make a huge amount of sales and a lot of money.
In conclusion, all of the four methods above give you the opportunity
to make money online. You can even make huge sums of money from them,
allowing you to quit your job to work from home for
yourself. However, they require you to learn the necessary
information to work them effectively and put in an adequate amount of
time and effort. Making money online is not easy, but it's not
exactly hard either. It can definitely be done!
