Want to make money online? In these tough economic times, having an extra income can make all the difference to you and your family. Let’s look at the top seven free tips to help you to make some cash today.
1. Make Your First Dollar: Do Something for Someone
Many people want to start off making money online by spending money: they buy any product which purports to teach them the “easy” skills they need.
However, chances are that you already have skills. What can you do that people would pay for? Perhaps you have writing, design, or other skills which other people need.
Advertise your skills, and make your first dollar online.
2. Invest Your Earnings in Your Own Domain
Once you’ve made your first dollar or two online, invest your earnings and buy your own domain name. Buy hosting too. Your own website is your hub on the web. Your site doesn’t need to be complicated, but you do need your own space where you can post reviews.
3. Create a Blog on Your Own Domain
Now you’ve got your own domain and hosting, create a blog. There’s lots of information online which tells you how to do this.
4. Write Reviews of Affiliate Products Which Sell
There are millions of affiliate products which you can sell online. Find products about which you’re enthusiastic, and preferably which you know well. Join the affiliate programs for those products.
Write reviews of a couple of products — make the reviews honest, informative, and entertaining. For extra credit, post video reviews.
5. Write Articles for Free Traffic
Now you’ve written your reviews, promote them. Write articles for the article directories and direct the links to your reviews.
6. Invest in Your Business
As soon as you start making affiliate sales, invest in your business by buying some advertising.
Do you notice a trend here?
We’re not asking you to spend any money (other than the money you’re making) on your new business. This is the way to make money online: bootstrap your new business. Reinvest.
7. What’s Working? Do More of That
If you’ve followed our tips so far, you’ve found some products which sell amazingly well, and which bring you in a steady income. Now it’s time to assess what’s working for you.
See how much you’ve made, and which products helped you to make that income.
Then look for related products which you can sell to people who buy the the products you’ve recommended. When you sell related products, you’ll be increasing the amount of each sale, and getting a higher commission.
