Ravinder, September 3, 2010

On this post I’m going to share some ways to make money online. However, you need to have a website or blog just like this one and skills in writing to do this. If you don’t have a blog or website you can have a blog for free at blogger.com, or you can choose other blogging platforms on the internet today. It’s up to you.

1.) Pay Per Click (PPC)

Make a blog or website and write articles about the things that you’re good at. If you’re an expert in something you can make money from it. Remember content is very important that’s how you will get lots of visitors. Then apply to any PPC out there just remember to look for the reputable ones. Whether its Google ad sense, Yahoo search marketing, or Sell your ad space with BidVertiser. What you only need to do is to promote your website or blog and once visitors click not purchase or anything just clicks, then you will earn from it.

2.) Affiliate Programs

Join affiliate programs and earn money from each referral. This is actually one of the biggest money making opportunities online. What you need to do is to find a product that fits the content of your site and start promoting it. If you think that’s easy then your wrong. Especially now a days competition on internet are very high. Here’s how it works. You’re going to promote a product from your chosen affiliate. Pre-sell the visitors or searchers then bring them to the merchant sell page. When the visitor purchase then you will get paid.

3.) Make money from E-books

Selling E-books is one of the popular ways to make money online. This requires you to have good or excellent skills in writing to succeed. Create your own website or blog and sell pre-written topics or you can write on demand, whatever works best. You can get paid from PayPal or other web money you prefer. I just found PayPal more reliable since their service allows anyone to pay in anyway they prefer including, through credit cards, bank accounts, buyer credits, or account balances without sharing financial information. You can easily add website payment button using their service and they will do the rest. Just sign up to PayPal and check their merchant’s services for more info.

4.) Sell your own products

Selling your own products is a traditional way of making money online. No matter what kind of products you sell you can surely find a buyer online. Put up a website that focuses on your own products, have a good shipping plan and start selling it online.

5.) Auction your products

Another way to make money online is through auction products. You don’t necessarily need a web site to do this, although it will help, since there are some auction sites out there. Lots of people enjoy selling via auction sites, because anything can be sold from their old personal items to new ones.

6.) Sell your advertising space

If you have a blog or web site with a high page rank then you can sell your advertising space. Don’t ask me if you’re wondering why advertising has to be relative to high PR rather than the number of visitors. I’m also asking myself the same question.

That’s it for now. Hope you’ve learned something from this post. If you have questions or suggestions feel free to leave a comment. Comments are greatly appreciated.

E-mail Marketing

Another way to make money online is the so called E-mail marketing. This is actually not a new method just wanted to share it to new comers. The goal in internet marketing is to get people to visit your site. Once you get their attention they will help you make money in several ways. Some of it are buying the products or services that you offer, clicking on your PPC ads (pay-per click) and your affiliates and others. This method works well with affiliate marketing, lead generation and also online service businesses. Most of affiliate marketers rely on E-mail marketing to scale up their business online

Here’s how it works. First things first find a good mailing service to host your mailing list like Interspire Email Marketer, aweber. Then the second thing you’ll probably think after that is how to get people’s email addresses the right way. You don’t want to get flagged as spam right? If your are accused of sending spam messages on others email, then you may find your email closed down, your website shut off, and also you may even be breaking a law. That’s where the issue of permission comes up.

What’s permission? Responsible email marketing is based on the idea of permission. It is essential to get permission to the owner’s email address before you can send them any commercial email. You don’t want to send a spam email.

Moving on, set up a site specifically to capture email addresses and names. You may notice that lots of web sites have free offers and some are asking you to subscribe to their newsletter by filling out a form with your name and email address. Others are using the comment section to collect email addresses, but most are inviting you to subscribe to their newsletter to keep you updated with their blog content more like an RSS (Really Simple Syndication). There are also few other ways to do it, but you have to offer a good deal to make them subscribe. Good list builders should come up with ways to help the people on their list to make it a win situation for both sides.

Once you have their email addresses you can now begin to include them in your regular mailing schedules. You can now send info. to their inboxes that invites them to go visit your site or the affiliate your trying to promote. This makes things easy for them since they don’t have to bookmark your site, you just send them the link on regular basis.
