Online business is a difficult thing to break into. There are literally thousands of ways that you can make money online, but many require you to have a significant amount of traffic. If you have never really explored these ideas, then you are in for a surprise.
Many people have found that having the right idea is even more important than having the right traffic. If you work hard enough you will inevitably find yourself with a lot of traffic. The search engines take care of it as long as you are putting the right content on your site.
But what about getting people to actually give you money once they are on your site? You need to make sure you have the right business model in place before you get started. Here are five ideas that you may not have been aware of before but could get started on today.
These sites require a significant amount of research, but after that they are easy to run. They take advantage of any sort of monetization strategy that relies on heavy traffic, including Google Adwords and affiliate programs. So how do they work?
Start with a product (affiliate product or keyword) that has a decent pay out. Then start looking for search terms that have a high amount of traffic without a significant amount of competition. If you are curious about doing this efficiently, search the Internet to find more ways in which you can get started.
Once you have the right terms a site of five or six pieces of content, all focused on the right keywords, can get you into first place on Google. This requires no back linking or other processes and can start leading to money immediately. Since they are fast, you can easily make one per week and generate thousands of dollars per month.
Affiliate Sales Sites
By making a site that focuses solely on reviews of products through sites like Amazon.com you can sell their products. You can make a hefty commission, especially if you can make a lot of sales. This business takes practice, but once it is set up you can easily make hundreds of dollars (or more) per month.
Most people focus on selling high item electronics. But one trick that is really important to note is that if you sell a lot of smaller products you can make a lot more money. Your commission rate is determined by your total number (not volume) of sales.
If you find that you are good at keyword research then you could easily start a website where you are reselling someone else product. There are many products out there that offer affiliate or reseller options. It’s important that you inform the readers of your affiliation, though, as this is required by the FCC.
Once you get started with the process of creating your site and putting it together you can provide a number of options to those who are purchasing from you. By presenting them with many options and encouraging them to purchase the product, they are more likely to buy.
This is a site that could give you the opportunity to create your own products and sell them through Click Bank. You could easily put together a special report or an e-book and put it on Click Bank and have others sell it for you. This will allow you to relax while you make some cash.
It’s important that you focus on the products that are currently selling on Clickbank.com. The thing most people don’t understand is that Click Bank is not only marketed through sales pages and websites, but also on mailing lists. For most people who put together a mailing list, they are going to quickly find that they need to sell different products on a regular basis.
Offer a Service
The world of Internet marketing is one that relies heavily on outsourcing. While many people prefer to work with websites like Elance.com and Scriptlance.com there are many more who prefer to have a regular connection with someone that is able to provide their service on a regular basis.
Providing a service to Internet marketers will require that you have a good grasp of the types of services that they need. Here are three that they regularly use to build up their own online business. You are going to need to master all of these skills and more in order to take advantage of any of the ideas listed before, anyway.
1. Content Writing. This is a skill that many Internet marketers lack. If you find that you have a knack for putting together words, you can make a fortune writing articles for others.
2. Article submissions. Many people make money by submitting articles to article directories. The process can be tedious, but can pay well if you learn to do it fast and cheap.
3. Back link building. Whether you are providing comments on other blogs or links from websites you own, you can easily provide back links to a number of sites and make a good amount of money doing so.
4. Keyword Research: A lot of Internet marketers want to simply set it and forget it. If you have found that you are good at keyword research but don’t have the stomach to take a chance, then this might be a good spot for you.
Regardless of what type of business you start on the Internet, you are going to need to spend a lot of time working on it. You can easily find yourself immersed more than full time, so don’t get into these ideas if your goal is to slack off.
You want to make sure that, in the beginning, you allot at least 40 hours per week to these tasks. As time goes on, you may find that your business runs with only a few hours each week. But in the beginning hard work will pay off.
