Learning how to make money online does not have to be hard to do. All you need is plan … you need to take action on your plan … and you need to make sure that you stick to that plan.
Here is a plan that I have used over and over again to make myself plenty of cash online and you can do the same too.
Find A Hungry Niche
Get out a pen and paper and write down all of your interests, hobbies and things you are good at. Then take that list, get out your favorite keyword tool (or use the free Google External Keyword Tool) and find some high searched keyword phrases. Take your completed list of keyword phrases and pick a niche.
Find A Product To Sell
Now go to ClickBank.com, PayDotCom.com, CommissionJunction.com and LinkShare.com and look for products to sell that fit the niche that you picked. If you can not find anything at those sites, do a search on Google by entering the name of your niche followed by the word "affiliate program".
Set Up Your Site
By now you should have found a niche with some high searched keyword phrases and a product that you can sell as an affiliate. Your next step would be to get a website going where you can sell your niche product. The easiest site to get going is a blog. There are many sites online that offer free blog platforms and these sites make it super easy to set your own blog up. Some of the most popular ones are Blogger.com and WordPress.org. WordPress.org also provides you the option of hosting a WordPress blog on your own hosting account and provide you with the files and instructions on how to install them.
Send Traffic To Your Site
Your site is useless if it does not get any traffic so this is a very important step. There are many ways to generate traffic and two of my favorites are article marketing and video marketing. Submitting articles to sites like EzineArticles.com and GoArticles.com will bring in traffic from the sites themselves but will also bring you traffic from Google because Google loves ranking those sites very high in their search engine. Those article sites allow you to include author bio boxes which you can place your sites URL that people will click on and land on your site.
Video submission sites like YouTube.com are also great for traffic generation because YouTube gets millions of visitors to their site checking out their videos everyday. Plus YouTube videos get high rankings in Google which also make them appealing.
So there is the plan that will help you make money online. These steps are easy to follow and they work, but I must warn you … to reach success you need to take action on these steps and stick to it!
