Do you want to earn money online? I realize that many people simply do not know where to start and most of the “make money online” products out there today assume that we all know everything already.
So, I have taken this a bit further and am going to go in detail and in-depth about everything. When you finish this, you should have no doubt that you will be able to earn money online. It is going to take work and effort on your part however, anything in life that is worth having does.
One other thing this method works great for me, but I make no claims or promises as to how much money you will or could make. It is up to you to read and put these methods into action you have nothing to lose.
You Need Mental Toughness to Earn Money Online
Majority of the success that you will have online will be derived from your mental toughness. This is important because many of the things that you read and many of the products that you buy online set you up for failure.
The reason for this, most of the product that has to do with making money online the first thing that jumps out at you is the claims of instant income that pours into your bank account the minute you buy the product. Many of these claims are crap and the sooner that you realize that the better off you will be.
What happens is, you buy a product, read it, and start to implement what it teaches and if you are not rich overnight you somehow feel that you have failed, but hold on a minute…
You need to understand right off the bat that the people that earn money online are the ones that stick it out, the ones that put in the extra hour, and the ones that fight through the days of no sales.
You have to decide right now, are you going to be one of the successes or are you going to be one of the people that gets stuck in a rut and throws in the hat only to try something else and fail too?
If you are looking for a quick fix or push-button system to solve all of your financial problems, this guide is not for you. If however, you are willing to put the work in and follow a system that has proven to be successful, read on and let’s get to work.
Finding Your Niche so You Can Earn Money Online
One of the things that most beginners struggle with the most is picking a niche. The main reasons are, many systems and guides tell you to pick something that you are passionate about or something you love. However, there could be a problem if what you love is not something people are searching for or willing to send money online.
So, what I suggest if you want to earn money online pick a niche that is going to make you money. The question is, how do you know what niche that is?
Based on my research it is said that the most profitable niches at the moment are:
- Making Money Online
- Health and Fitness
- Weight Loss
- Fashion & Beauty
However, there is no silver bullet, and there is no guarantee that you will earn money online with any of these niches if you don’t put in the work. Similarly, there are thousands of other niches you can make money from as long as you are dedicated to the cause.
When deciding on a niche there are a couple of things that you can look at.
- Which group of people would you like to target?
- What is their biggest problem?
- How can you help them?
- Do you have the information you can share with them?
- Are you willing to research this group?
- What product would they spend money to buy?
All of the things above combined can guide you in making the right decision when you’re trying to come up with the right niche.
The main goal is to find a niche that you are comfortable with, do the initial work, and then collect money from it for years to come. This is exactly the reason that it is so important to do thorough research. By doing so, you are making sure that you set yourself up to earn money online and ultimately become successful.
Doing Keyword Research
When you find your niche and set up your blog it will be time to start writing great contents. This is where keyword comes in, keywords are really the exact words people type in the search engine when they are seeking information on the niche you have chosen.
Keyword research is one of the most important things that we do online. It can be very time consuming depending on how deep you need to go in order to get keywords that you are happy with, but it is well worth the effort and will pay a great return if done correctly.
The Keyword tool I use is Jaaxy
I’m going to give some examples here and try to make it as easy as possible for you to follow along. I want you to understand exactly what I am doing. For example purposes, we are going to be researching keywords that relate to the “Making money online” niche, as that is the niche this website targets.
As you can see I entered the keyword “how to make money online for beginners”
The result, there are 84 searches per month for this keyword. There is an estimated visit of 14 per month and there are only 73 competing websites with this same keyword.
Let us look at another one – “how can I make money online”
Okay, for this one the search per month is 10,122 and the estimated visitor to your site is 1721 with 109 competing sites.
The choice would be yours now to choose the keyword you want to work with.
Time to Write Great Contents
Now that you have your niche selected and the keywords that we are going to use, the next step is to create some content to generate traffic for your website.
This can be done in a couple of ways. Personally, I like to use Google to do a little bit of research. Chances are good that just by entering your keywords in Google you are going to come up with a ton of useful stuff to write about.
One thing that I like to do even before checking Google though is to go to Yahoo Answers and search for variations of my keyword. This will tell me what problems people are having and what kind of solutions are being given to them.
If you pay really close attention you will pick up a couple of great titles for articles and a list of different things that you can write about. However, in this case, because we have been using the keyword “how to make money online for beginners” what I am going to do right now is head on over to http://answers.yahoo.com
and type in a variation of this keyword, for now, we will stick with “make money online”.
Do you see what is going on? I could literally spend hours in Yahoo Answers and come up with 100 article titles and different problems that need to be addressed in this niche.
Now that we have a couple of article titles, the next thing we have to do is come up with content for the articles. This is what I like to use Google and my own life experiences.
You can also read other articles that are in circulation and put your own spin on things. I know that when I read almost any article when I am done, I have ideas for how I could expand that topic in three different directions. This does take a little bit of creativity on your part, but the more you do it, the easier it will come to you. We now know how to come up with content to write about, so it is time to put it into action.
There are also other ways to come up with content. You can look for PLR material that relates to your niche or you can even outsource the article writing altogether. If you decide to go the PLR route, make sure that you completely rewrite the entire article so that it is unique to only you.
Once you have all of your content ready to go, make sure that you save it. I recommend starting a new folder for each one of your niches. This will help you stay organized and allow you to find everything quickly and easily.
Time to Get Traffic to Your Website
The first and best way to get traffic to your website is to write great content……as the gurus say “Content is King”. Yes! you have to put out excellent content so that people will want to read, share and invite others to visit your website. The search engines also love great content so that when people type in the keywords that you use they will direct them to your website and not the other hundreds of sites with the same keywords.
The next thing you have to do is go to where your target group hand out on the internet and tell them about your website. You go to places like facebook, twitter, Instagram, Linkin, Reddit and any others you can think of now. Make post, flyers and advertise in these places so they will know about your website.
You can also head on over to http://answers.yahoo.com and find some questions that relate to your niche. Make sure to answer the questions like you are genuinely concerned. Directly below where you answer the question there is a box for “resource”. You are generally safe if you put 2 links in that box. So, make sure that your Squidoo lens is always one of them and then just alternate the others.
Chances are good that you will not see a ton of traffic by doing this, but you will get some trickles and maybe even a sale. This is especially true because you are putting your links in front of someone who needs what you are selling.
Another source of traffic can come through writing and publishing articles with sites like http://www.ezinearticles.com If you have already written articles and used them, then you already know that by far they are the best source of targeted free traffic that we have at our disposal.
As a rule, I recommend writing and publishing 1 article per day for each niche you are in. You can scale that down to meet time constraints that you have, but 1 or more articles a day will give you a steady flow of traffic and allow you to start making sales sooner than later.
Don’t Let the Article Writing Intimidate You.
One thing that is very important and I can’t stress enough is that where the article writing is concerned you have to be CONSISTENT! If you aren’t, you very well could see your traffic and sales dry up.
The great thing about articles though, especially when you are dealing with low competition keywords is you stand a great chance of landing a top-ranking and getting hundreds of visitors a day because of it. Once this happens, you can make a decision on whether there are other keywords you can target or maybe move into another niche to give you an additional revenue stream.
Wow, I know that was a lot so if you feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. I am going to share a little secret with you.
