There are different ways that you can make money online, however, in this blog post, I would discuss the one which has worked really well for me and most of the successful Internet marketers. This way of making money online is really easy to understand and implement! In order to get started, you need an investment which equates to $0. Yes, you heard me right, it is FREE to get started so continue reading to understand the process better.
This is something which not all sites offer and that is getting started with your own personal website in less than 5 seconds. When I started out as a newbie, I really wanted internet marketing to workout for me and this was the only legit way that I still follow the method to build a successful online business. The first step was building your own website.
It may sound a little overwhelming but that is how everyone starts in the beginning by taking one step at a time and within a few months your website would have scaled, so keeping that goal in mind you should build a website which would act as a strong foundation for your online business.
While starting out building a website might seem a little difficult so watch the video below and build your own website within for FREE. This is how I started off with my first website and hopefully, you could get started here as well. In the case you have any problems let me know in the comment section below and I would reply back as soon as possible.
Can you start your business with zero investment?
If you think that this is too good to be true then you are absolutely right! You do need to invest in a business and sometimes the more the investment the better are the results. In this case, you need to buy a domain if you are serious about starting your business. Buying a domain will cost around $10 per year, which is still less than what any other physical business would cost you.
So in comparison, online business costs really less compared to any physical business. All you need is to purchase a domain and if you want you could shift to a paid hosting where the costs depend on the type of hosting you buy. All you need to get started with a successful online business is a niche that sounds promising to you and some right training that would help you move forward at a faster pace.
What else once I have my own website?
Once you have your website set up you need start out by adding content to your website. Adding fresh content is the key to having a successful website. You can try all the social media marketing tips and tricks but creating a lot of content is the only way that you can ensure that you have traffic which is relevant to your niche.
Creating content regularly establishes a site trust with google which further helps in great SERP rankings. More quality content your site contains, better are your google rankings. So creating fresh content thrice a week or twice a week would immensely benefit your website.
If you do not want to write the content yourself then you can even outsource the work to sites like iWriter where you could get articles written by professionals starting from $1.25. Content writing is going to be difficult initially and it was not easy for me but after a month you just get used to it and start liking the entire process of research and creating content.
Once you have grown your site and have a considerable amount of content and matter then you would slowly see some traffic coming to your site and if the traffic converts then you successfully make a sale( if you are into affiliate marketing). Basically, once you have traffic on your site the next step is to monetize your website.
Ways to monetize your website!
There are many ways in which you could monetize your website and the ones that are most commonly used are listed below:
1. Affiliate Marketing
This the most commonly used technique to make money online and I have known people who make thousands of dollars per day using affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a way of promoting products from amazon(it could be any site which has an affiliate program and is relevant to your niche) where when someone lands on your site and makes a purchase of the relevant products you promote on your site. When the person makes a purchase of that product then you make a commission on that purchase.
When you have a traffic of people that ranges from 1k-10k then it is possible that you would make a full-time income from that particular site. The important factor here is that you need to have relevant people on your site who are interested in the niche because they are the ones who are going to make a purchase.
Having a targeted traffic by creating posts using quality keywords and trying to help people as much as possible with product reviews is surely going to help you have a better chance at higher conversion rates. Imagine promoting a product which is worth $100 and having a 10 percent commission rate, now if you make 10 sales in a week then you can easily make $100 a week and that is when the website is starting out. Once you start making
Once you have enough traffic you would make around $100 every day and thus affiliate marketing is the one that has helped many people out there to make money online. Once you have your website set up then you can work on it once a month and maintain your site.
2. Selling Products
Once you have enough traffic then you can sell your own products which can be books or other commodities that help people. Selling products through your website would be one of the greatest ways to make money online since here you are making the entire profit and not just making commissions.
You can monetize your website using more than one way. You can go ahead and choose affiliate marketing and later on could possibly start selling your own products. It is totally up to you, you can monetize your websites in a number of ways and it would generate revenue if you have a quality website which is targeted to help out people within a targeted niche.
Selling ebooks, pdfs and other useful stuff is some common ways that we come across people who sell their own products online. So, if you have an idea of selling your own product online then do try out promoting it on your website and wait for the sales to get rolling.
3. Providing services
Providing services or something which you are good at doing would be another way to monetize your site. If you want to start some consulting services or want to provide some service which is unique and might help others then this could be another way to make money online.
Providing services is similar to selling your products and you would make the entire profit on each sale so if you have any plans to provide logo making, content writing or any other services which you are good at then you can use your website to promote your services.
4. Google Adsense
Placing ads on your website which when clicked on by your visitors will result in some earnings is another method of monetization. However, I do not recommend you to rely much on this method since you make very little money on each click and to have a substantial amount of earnings you need to generate thousands of traffic every single day.
There are a few people who get banned from Adsense for no reason and when that happens you would have no source of income from your website and might need to resort to other money making strategies.
What do you think which one is better, Affiliate Marketing or Google Adsense?
You can create your source of income by using any of these methods to monetize your website. This is how most of us create a full-time online income source and if you have 7 ways of monetizing your website then you would be creating 7 sources of income. So choose the monetization techniques carefully and try to maximize your profits.
