This recession is very hard on many of us. Countless of people lost their jobs and many more will come. Needless to say, finance is a though subject for most people all around the world. Well, if you can’t find a job, you can learn how to earn money online.
No, this is not one of those “make money while you sleep” kind of deals (or rather SCAMS). In fact, in order to be successful online, you’re going to have to work damn hard at it! If you’re not willing or able to spend at least 2 hours every day with commitment, I’ll save you some time and advice you to stop reading now.
Still reading? Good!
Before I tell you more about how to earn money online, I simply must tell you this: You don’t need any special skills or talents, you don’t need any technical knowledge or programing skills and you don’t need a marketing degree. Heck, you don’t even have to be all that smart! All you really need to be successful online, is a computer with access to the Internet.
So, on to how to earn money online. I have two words for you: Internet Marketing. If these words scare you a little, read the last paragraph again if you need to. Believe me, if you found this article on the internet, you have the skill to earn money online.
Internet Marketing has been around for over a decade, but it wasn’t until today that anyone can learn how to earn money online and actually make money online. With all the tools and techniques available today, you don’t need any technical skills or programing experience. All you need is a little education and once you understand the process, it’s really quite easy to do and it will likely become a second nature to you.
How Does It Work?
To become a successful Internet Marketer, you need 3 things. A website (with the right tools, you can set up a complete website in seconds), a product to sell (we’ll get to that in a sec.) and, of course, people to sell to.
You’re going to sell “Affiliate Products”. Affiliate products are awesome. All you need is a ClickBank account and you’ll have access to over 100,000 affiliate products you can promote this very minute. You don’t need to take care of the shipping, or even the payments. All you need to do is set up a website about how amazing the product is.
You can literally sell anything you want. If you love rollerblades, sell them. If you love old horror flicks, sell them! If you want to sell sunshades for a Valtra 8550 tractor, go ahead (I actually sold these once).
Once you have a website about how the product will benefit your audience, you need to drive as much RELEVANT traffic to your site as possible. Note that I put the word “relevant” in capitals. I didn’t do that for nothing. The key to online success is relevance. Don’t drive people who are looking for sunglasses to a website that is selling guitars.
The best way to drive relevant traffic to your website, is to write articles (like this one). If you’re selling guitars, write articles about how to buy a guitar. People who are interested in buying a guitar will read your article and will probably click on the link to your website afterward.
Also, the more articles you’ll write the better your website will be ranked in search engines like Google and Yahoo, generating even more traffic and making you more money!
An that’s how to earn money online. It’s basically just like a store in the mall. You need a store (a website), products and people to go to your store.
