Running a successful internet marketing business is all about finding the best ways to make money online. Why? Because using the best methods gives you the best chances of success. Simple really.
But the key is to know which ways are tried and tested and which should be discarded by all means.
So in this article you will discover 4 proven methods that are among the very best ways to make money online today and will probably remain so in the foreseeable future.
Let’s get right into them!
The first method is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is the practice of selling other people’s products or services and receiving a commission for every sell you make. There are several ways to go about it.
If you are just starting out online, the best way is to create an information rich website that provides information on a topic you are passionate about. Once you create this website (or have one created for you), you can search for merchants that sell products related to your topic and promote those products on your website.
For example, if you start a site on fitness you can join the affiliate program of a treadmill company. On the pages where you emphatically proclaim to the world how wonderfully effective treadmills are, you can include affiliate links to a merchant site that sells treadmills.
Whenever someone buys a treadmill after getting to the merchant site through your affiliate link, you will get paid a commission. It’s that easy. Infact, in my opinion, it’s not only one of the best ways to make money online, it’s also one of the easiest.
But as with any other method, making money through affiliate marketing requires you to be patient and committed to the task. The more experienced you get, the more likely you will be to make money.
Product Creation and PLR
Amongst the best ways to make money online, selling your own products is probably King. It provides you with a level of control over your own business that no other method can provide. You can either create your products from scratch or use private label rights (plr) products to help you create them faster.
PLR products refer to readymade products that can be purchased and then used to create completely new products. For instance, you can break them down into several smaller products. Or, you can combine them with other products to create a bigger better product.
You could even just modify them by rewriting them in your own words. You are only limited by your imagination. In fact, here is an example of a plr product I rewrote. This particluar product has become quite popular on the Warrior Forum with many people thanking me for puting it together.
It has also been kept on the forums list of best resources for more than a month now and shows no signs of slowing down. You can verify my claims by logging in to the Warrior forum and then scrolling down to "Joint Ventures, Articles, eBooks". Under that title, select "Best Online Resources". Then, scroll down the page untill you get to this title:
Free ebook WILL show you Proven Online Money Making Methods - Guaranteed.
Under it, you will see my Warrior name, EnterIn. Notice how my plr ebook has over 260 views and quite a few favourable comments. Now, I'm not saying all this to brag. No one is interested in that. I'm just proving to you that plr products if used properly can be a great addition to your online business. Now, granted, am not yet selling this ebook, but I may in the future and will have several testimonials if I choose to.
Whether or not you want to use plr is a choice you will have to make when creating a product.
But the bottom line is that having your own product is advantageous because you get to keep all the money whenever you make a sale. You can also recruit affiliates to promote it for you and hence make way more money much quicker than you ever could all by yourself.
A product with your name on it also helps to establish you as an expert in your niche. This means that people will view you as someone who really knows what he or she is talking about. Consequently, the will take you more seriously when deciding whether or not to buy from you.
Infact, having your own product, can even help you sell more products as an affiliate. You could, for example say, “I have just found a great product that helps you fix problem A. I wrote a bit about this problem in my ebook but I think this product will give you an even more complete solution”.
You see how powerful having your own product is! It gives your credibility a serious boost. That’s why it’s clearly one of the best ways to make money online.
But just remember that you will need to process orders, provide customer support, deal with returns and a whole lot more if you decide to sell your own product. So until you are really ready to do these things, it is better to stick to affiliate marketing.
Offering services via the internet is another great way to make money online. It is one of the easiest ways to get started because everyone wants to outsource time consuming tasks to someone else.
So when you prove that you can get the job done well, your customers will view your online service business as an integral part of their own business. Imagine that!
What types of services can you offer? Well, your options are endless to tell you the truth. Just to name a few, you could provide services like article writing, graphic design, website creation, ebook writing, transcription, press releases, SEO, newsletter creation and one on one email consulting.
These are just a drop in the endless ocean of services you can provide. The key is to find a market that really needs something done for them, most likely something time consuming.
Then you just need to offer them such high value service that they have no option but to choose to do business with you.
Then once they choose you, all you have to do is exceed their expectations and they will keep coming back to you over and over again. And that’s the beautiful thing about providing services.
It’s so hard to find someone who does the job well enough that if you do a great job, you can easily become an indispensible part of your customers business. That’s why providing services is one of the best ways to make money online.
Lastly, blogging is a proven money making method that can help take your online business to another level regardless of what you do. If you are able to provide your market with fresh new content on a regular basis, then you are leaving a lot of money on the table if you don’t yet have a blog.
The reason for this is that search engines love blogs that are regularly updated. They tend to reward them by sending them more and more visitors. And who doesn’t need more potential customers?
When people visit your blog, you can advertise your products and services to them. Or if you want, you could join a program like Google Adsense and make money whenever someone clicks on the ads that Google displays on your blog.
Better still, you could sell advertising space directly without going through a program like Google Adsense. The possibilities are endless!
