Making Money: Useful Techniques

There’s nothing quite like getting hold of some useful techniques for making money online! Well, here are a few that I hope you’ll like and be able to take forward to your own set up.

Have you ever thought about how hard it is to sell a product or service online?

Some people think that it only involves getting your offer in front of a customer and then the job’s done. However, for those of us who have spent thousands of failed PPC campaigns or on SEO, we all know that it simply not the case.

It takes much more effort and a host of techniques and strategies to complete those sales and start making money online.

Pre-Selling

If you don’t know what pre-selling is, you should know more about this useful marketing technique.

The name of the strategy is self-explanatory in regard to what it does. So let’s take a look at this technique that involves selling things people want.

There are several guidelines that you should be aware of, especially if you want to do this very well. If you put your mind to it, you can probably think of many instances where you have experienced pre-selling.

What it boils down to is basically setting up a page with a certain kind of content designed to ″warm up″ a prospective customer. It’s done by telling them about how much the product will enhance their life in some way (a way that is relevant to the product).

It also serves to highlight the problems that our potential buyer faces and how this product will solve their problems. The idea is to build a powerful sense of desire for the product because of what it can do for them, before sending them on to the actual vendor’s sales page where it becomes their job to close the sale (making you the commission for your trouble).

Usually, people that understand this process do so intuitively without even knowing why. You need to be able to do this technique as it is essential to online marketing.

Webinars

It may be time to apply some new and popular techniques to attract more people to your website and products. In this approach, you will only concentrate on one approach or tool -holding webinars. Webinars can be easily marketed to a targeted list, so you should study some list building tactics if you don’t have a list already.

It’s best to use your list to promote the webinar, and then the webinar will help drive traffic to your sales page. This is one of the latest ways to engage in relationship marketing, and it can be very effective.

While webinars can be used to market specific products, they’re even better for building trust and credibility with your subscribers.

Adding Value

Adding value to an existing product is something that you can do when making your own product. Just create it and also change the delivery method after the customer buys. Once you change the media format of the product, you can deliver it in a different way.

In many cases you can actually open up completely new markets to start earning honest dollars online. Take for instance a particular product, originally marketed on the basis of how well it helps to solve your problem and how it can also be used to do things that will make your life easier in some way.

Book to Video

So you can take a book and then make a video series out of it. Perhaps you will find the video product that you can make an e-book out of.

You could also make videos based on an e-book. As long as you are not merely copying someone else’s product, doing this is okay. It is essential that you do some exploration in regard to creating a better product than the one that you found.

When you find a product to copy, don’t think you are doing something wrong! This is done all the time in every industry.

Although this is related to video sales letters, it is different and unique in and of itself. Pre-selling your products is what you will do in these videos. If you have an e-mail list, you can write a pre-sell video for them.

Now that is something I have never seen in all my many years of online marketing. Pre-selling is the focus of this particular type of strategy. Finding out more about this topic is in your best interest if you want to do it in the most efficient and profitable way.

If you know what you are doing, make the video right away. If you don’t, you need to find out more about pre-selling before a video can be made.

Product creation is very easy to do, but unless you know your niche audience, all of your efforts will lead to zero sales. If you do the research ahead of time, you will know if your product will sell or not.

If you don’t do your research, you may feel terrible when the sales do not come in. Success with your product will solely be based upon the research you do prior to making the product. Do your research and prosper!

How to Make Money Typing on a Computer

Do you have a computer with a keyboard and you want to start making money with it? I’m going to show you right here how to make money typing on a computer!

It’s great to help entrepreneurs just like you go out there and create income for  yourself. I remember a very big entertainment  forum website with lots of links to it.

There were lots of people there and in the  end it got shut down. It was one of those
websites that just too many copyright links were on there.  It was a great source of income at that time online, all because I had built that up to make money online and then one day it was shut
down.

I guess it got so many letters of people that were looking for copyright but so what happened was the website got shut down

Anyway,  I was in a place where I needed to figure out what I was gonna do next. I figured I need to figure out how I was gonna generate income. So I needed to go online
search around.

Start Searching

I know you’ve probably done that too you search around you’re looking for things to do. So one of the things I started to do was I created a blog I started writing. Just writing from my blog, writing articles.

I would go find you know topics that people wanted to learn about and I would just start writing articles. It started to take off. It started to get some traction sort of get some SEO. Google was really sending good traffic to it and I started to generate
some good income affiliate income from it.

So people will click on the links and then going out well then what happened was I started to get emails from people saying hey I really like your content and like your articles. Would you be able to write articles for us?

Write Articles

So I had different companies that would pay me to write articles for them I would just
they would give me a topic and I would go research it and I would go out there
and that was the only way I was really generating income. It was I just didn’t have anything else going for me so I knew that you know when your back’s against the wall you have to figure something out.

And that’s what I did for that so I just ready to start writing content and I figured out there’s lots and lots of companies out there that do the same thing. They’re looking for
people to write content for them and so that’s what I want to do for you now.

Before we jump into that though there’s going to be a link further down the page to an article that explains what right now is  my number one recommended opportunity right here online. It can help you make passive income with money coming in almost every day.

I like to come out with great new articles for you. You know work from home just anything that’s gonna help you have success.

Can You Type?

So with that in mind you have it you have the ability to type and you have the ability to create content. If you don’t have the ability to type I’ll show you how I tricked it that
will get you the content so you can have this for your website or blog.

WP Hub

Let’s go to a website right here okay. This is WP hub. This is WordPress. This is an article site, it’s a directory or a place where people come to learn about WordPress, about plugins, about hosting and all things WordPress.

It’s a super hot topic people love to create web sites around WordPress well if you go to WP hub and you go to you can see on W help they’re gonna have all kinds of tutorials and they’re gonna have articles and things like that to help people with WordPress.

So what you do is you come out here to the very bottom and you go to where it says “Write For Us.” They’re looking for content just like I told you when I was getting people were coming to me and they were looking for content. They were getting hired out.

Well if you come down here it says they’re gonna pay you anywhere from 1 article OK. That’s big if you create an article and you send it to them they’re gonna pay anywhere from 2  dollars per article and you can go out there and you can research this and you
can learn about WordPress and you can just all you can do is watch some videos on YouTube and you can learn about it.

And then write articles for WP hub and you can get paid very good money for that. So you just got to reach out to them let them know is you want to start writing for them and they’re gonna pay you for that . So here’s another great website now this is Linode so we’ll go to Leno calm the first one is gonna be WP hub calm so WP hub calm this was gonna be Lin calm.

Cloud Hosting

This is cloud hosting. Cloud hosting is where everybody’s going right now. Cloud hosting is really big right now. There’s a big battle between Google and Amazon and even Microsoft’s jumping into the cloud hosting game right now so there’s a real battle.

Amazon is is really the king right now, with that they just came out earlier and Google’s trying to play catch-up with them. But there’s a real kind of battle for that and so there’s big demand for lots of articles and things like that so over on Linoy there’s if you go to guides and tutorials they have a lot of guys they have a lot of tutorials now if
you come here to the very bottom you can see it says contribute to our library so
what they’re gonna do is you’re gonna pay you up to $3.
gonna be a guide as tutorial .

This is something that’s gonna help people in the cloud hosting environment so you can
go out there and you can learn about it you can research it and then you can create a guide upload it to the community and then they’ll pay you upwards of $3.

Create Content

Ask yourself well maybe I don’t know how to type. Maybe I don’t know how to create this content. You can use websites like I write or calm now I writers very inexpensive they’ll help you create some content to help you some create the guide and you’re just gonna have to you know if you can’t write it yourself you just have to split the cost.

Like split the the income that you get from this website with Iwriter and they’ll help you write the article for you. But if you get into a groove of really creating content for them then you can really crank these out

Another great place is going to be go to up work and if you if you just go to like this if you should go to like article writer and you and you hit search I believe it all come up yeah I did right here wait. Yeah article writer so right here says experience book an article editor.

You can find somebody you know a lot of these are going to be here in the state but I have found people that are going to be in different parts of the world. They’re going to be a lot cheaper just because of the cost of living and other place in the world are going to be a lot less and they don’t require a lot of money up front.

But there’s going to be tons of people in here they’re gonna help you write these articles. So you just you got to work with them and you just got to figure out what their rate is gonna be and then you would have to split the cost. Now what I recommend you doing is just just figure out how you can learn how to do this figure out how you can learn how to type and write the content and then you can put these out yourself.

Write it Yourself

Then you don’t have to split with anybody else but again if you know if you need help you can go to these places right here and they’ll help you out. I would suggest you just start learning how to type.

Start typing so you are creating articles, going out there learning new things and then putting those articles into these directories and get paid from them!

So there you go one hundred two hundred dollars three hundred hours from this website right here and there’s lots and lots of these these communities out there. These are just two examples of places out there and what I happen is if you start to get good at this then you’ll start to get more requests from other people to start creating articles for their website, for their blogs, for their companies.

Things like that alright so there you go hey if you want to get some information on passive income here’s the link mentioned above. Hit that real quick I’ll send you my number one recommended opportunity right here online.

Making Money Online

If you’re looking for some legitimate ways to make money online using tried and tested methods and not having to purchase an expensive training course from some guru or other, here is a way that I know about that I’ll share with you.

The goal is to make money using a computing device hooked up to the Internet, which is basically what defines being online is, but doing it legitimately using existing means that work through a network that will actually pay you once you have generated the money.

I’m here to tell you that you can (and relatively quickly too) learn how to make some money online and keep making it over time so it builds into a useful and valuable income source.

Why Earn Cash Online?

making money onlineFirst of all, you may wonder why you would even want to go through the learning process to figure out how you can generate an income from the Internet.

Especially if you already have a pretty well paid job that you may even actually like!

Well, I have learned from my many years of experience that people that really like their jobs and that their jobs are well paid and secure occupy a rather small minority of the general working population. If you fall into that category, congratulations are in order because you are one of a very small group of extremely lucky individuals!

As for the rest of us (and I include myself in there, because many moons ago, I also worked a job – several actually – that I did not like very much at all) the job is no more than a means to an end. That end being a vehicle for paying the bills and making it possible to survive modern life and maybe be able to treat yourself to something nice once in a while.

Given the opportunity to tell the boss where to go and walk away from what feels like a never ending prison sentence, many people would jump at the chance.

I did, although it was rather a long time ago when I worked in the IT section for a major national bank. The feeling I got when I was actually free from that lunatic asylum that called itself a financial institution was elation on steroids!

Anyway, I could go on about the why for a rather long time, but that wouldn’t really get us anywhere, would it? Suffice it to say, an opportunity to work for yourself and make a decent living from it is something worth grasping for.

Earning an online income is just such an opportunity.

How Does it Work?

There are several flavors of money generation from the Internet, but many of them are nothing more than pseudo-jobs like for example ghost-writing or content creation for companies or entrepreneurs already making their income online and that prefer to outsource the grunt work.

I want to concentrate on the kind of pursuit where you go after the money by placing products or services in front of potential buyers and make commission based on the sales you generate.

Basically, it’s being a sales person but without the need to meet face to face with your buyer or even to talk with them on the phone. There are some different ways to even do this, but my main method I use personally and that I will share with you is called affiliate marketing.

Learning it won’t always be easy and the caveat is that you will of course have to work hard. You’ll need to learn how to push through some mistakes and failures along the way.

However, it can be done and in fact IS done every single day by many thousands of affiliate marketers around the globe. The Internet has created so many possibilities for people to start making money online regardless of age, location or background.

It enables you to build a sustainable, online business or even just a side project that can make you extra and repeatable money every single month.

Before we dive in, I should address the elephant in the room: “There is no such thing as an online money-making get-rich quick scheme.”

In fact, most of the “quick and easy” tricks people talk about when it comes to creating an income online are not really true businesses. OK, some of them may be good for the creation of a few hundred bucks here and there, but they are not going to do you any good when it comes to unlocking your financial freedom where you can achieve complete control of your lifestyle.

Create Your Own Website or Blog

The legit way to start to make money is to create a solid foundation from where you’ll reach out to the world. Since we’re using the Internet, the best platform is your own space in the world wide web: a website/blog that you own and control.

You will need to buy a domain (a something.com) to host the website or blog on. You will need to buy hosting from a legitimate hosting company (there are plenty of them about). And you will need to learn how to build the website and populate it with content. There is the first hurdle that stops most people from even attempting to do this!

It is NOT easy to build a website if you don’t know how. Well of course it isn’t!

It isn’t supposed to be easy, or everyone would be doing it!

You can get started at entry level by, once you have your hosting set up, installing a WordPress website /blog onto your domain. or you can really get into this and learn how to build your own website using the HTML language that all websites are build with. The choice is yours.

I chose to build my own websites with HTML and only use WordPress on a few of my sites – or in this case, a free WordPress blog. There are advantages and disadvantages of doing either of these things. I don’t want to get into them too deeply here, but here is a few quick thoughts of mine:

With a WordPress blog, there are aspects of the setup that are out of your direct control, such as the programmatic nature of most of the setup and the database that is created. Hackers like to hack into WordPress sites because they seem to know how to do it more easily than breaking into hard-coded html sites.

I like to have full control over every line of code that makes up my websites, so I chose to go the more difficult route of learning how to code in HTML and CSS myself.

The end result to starting an Internet business is to create a window onto the world that people can visit and browse at their leisure. Your website must provide value for your visitors or they’ll just go elsewhere.

Make Commission

Intermingled with your valuable valuable content that will hold a visitor’s attention for long enough, will be the occasional recommendation for a product or service that compliments the subject of the article they’re reading. Basically that means selling them something they want.

There are thousands of businesses that will pay you honest commission in varying amounts to sell their products in your website articles or recommend that your visitors should subsequently visit such companies own websites to buy from them, direct.

You need to sign up with the company’s affiliate program (if they have one) or with an affiliate network that will put you in touch with many companies that will pay you for promoting them and their stuff. I’ll get into that side of the equation in my next post.

Stay tuned!
