The key to make money is the on the internet is to establish TRAFFIC to your site, squeeze page or whatever it is, Traffic is what going to bring you guys profit, without it its like a shopping center without costumers.
1. Pick a Niche
Tap into a market you are highly passionated about. If you are passionated about working out at the gym then pick a health niche. If you are passionated about electronics then pick something that's related to that. It's simple.. Take as much time as it to take to brainstorm on ideas on what you can relate to or something that you are already educated on.
IF you are absolutely not passionated about anything. Then you gotta start doing some homework! This brings me to the next step.
2. Do Your Homework
Okay, for everyone that went to school we all know that homework is borinnnnngggg and like what most kids would say now days " IT'S LAME'..
MAN UP and do it.. If you think making money is LAME then sorry my friend then I suggest you're are too weak to be warrior. and come back later when you're ready to be a real man.
How do you study your niche?
Google keyword tool: This is a standard tool that will help you know if your niche is very competitive or not. It allows you to know exactly how many people are searching for that keyword everyone month. I won't go too much detail about this.. If you want to learn more about it. Google it, there are tons of tutorials out there that will teach you how to do your researches with keyword tool.
3. Become an Affiliate
Now, you've have done your homework now its time to become and affiliate! Becoming an affiliate gives you the title for you to pretty much promote their products and collect a commission for whatever you sale. $$$
For most beginners, Amazon has a very cool affiliate program that has many tools for you to use, such as banners and etc.
Clickbank has probably been my most favorite site to promote ebooks about health niches.. and top of that their commission is top notch. Its all free to sign up..
4. Pick Your Weapon of Choice.
Now you're probably wondering…. How the heck do I start making money? Well, here come the most challenging part. I will throw you guys ways to on how to promote your products. Some of them are totally FREE and some will cost you few bucks, but its more like an investment.
A. Buy a domain and Host.. You can buy domains from GoDaddy, Namecheap and etc.
Then for your host, I highly recommend Hostgator since it goes very well along with WordPress. This will probably cost you from $20-50 depending on your domain and host packages. But it's worth it, in the long run. And I will tell you why later on.
Once you get that all completed, now its time to learn how to use wordpress. I am not any type of WordPress teacher, so I am not gonna go to any details about it. I highly recommend you guys to go on Youtube and type in "Wordpress Tutorials" there TONS of helpful tutorials out there.
B. I don't really recommend it, but for all you guys who have a budget right now and don't really want to spend any money. You can utilize the Blogger.com or WordPress.com. The reason why I don't recommend because Goggle can literally shut down your website if they find something that isn't part of there policy. Which means all your contents can be gone within seconds..
If it's done right! = $$$
Now Add UNIQUE Contents
This is very crucial.. Make sure to write contents that are beneficial to people.. for example: "How to lose weight in 7 days"… You get the idea. something that sticks.. and something they can learn from.
*Goggle always love contents that are unique. It will help you gain popularity in the search engine.
Alright.. Now its time for you to reach out to your potential costumers.. without them there's no such thing as sales.
Here are some few ways to get some:
- Youtube (FREE)
- Pay-Per-Click (Adwords, 7Search..etc.) (Cost $$)
- Guest blog commenting (FREE)
- Forums (FREE)
- Squdioo (FREE)
- Yahoo Answers (FREE)
- Solo Ads (Cost $$)
- Offline advertisement
To maximize your profit, you must have a squeeze page where you can have people subscribe to your list.. So you can continue to provide them more contents and produce more sales later on.
Remember these are real people, so don't spam them.
