Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could quit your deadly boring and underpaid day job, and start to work for yourself, from the convenience of your own home, at the times you decide? That is a dream many people have today. In the words to follow I will touch upon the secrets of how to make money online.
My Story The Short Version
When I started out, looking for new possibilities to make money online, I did not have any expectations of finding a way of becoming successful on the internet.
One day, I suddenly stumbled over a site that was talking about something called affiliate marketing, and how that could change my life dramatically. Of course this guy had my attention, and I read everything I could about it. This sounded to good to be true. Was it really possible to make money online, that he claimed? And could I do it too?
I decided to give it a try for all what it was worth. And I started, working like a maniac all nights long, because I still had my day job to manage day time. In the beginning, nothing happened and I got frustrated many times, but suddenly one day I managed to earn my first dollars and everything started to change. It was really working, and after that, I have never looked back.
OK, So What Is Affiliate Marketing Anyway? And How Can You Start Out?
Affiliate Marketing is the most simple way to start make money on line today, for anybody. You start out by finding something of your interest or maybe some kind of problem to solve, match it with a product that solves the problem, and start promoting that product, when somebody buys that product after going through your promotion, you will receive a commission from the sale.
That is the simple definition. Its all about finding a niche of your choice and match it with a great product that you will be able to find at one of the large affiliate networks out there. My personal favorite is ClickBank that has thousands of products in digital format, software, eBooks, DIY-Guides etc. Start here to get your affiliate link. Commissions are really good here too, often 50-75% of the actual sales price.
But How Do You Promote Those Products?
There are a lot of proven ways of doing this, but I usually recommend Article Marketing as the first choice for a beginner. This totally free to start out with and also very easy to do. All you have to do is write one or several articles about a problem, and promote a product that solves it. Add your affiliate link that you got from e.g. ClickBank and youre good to go, just waiting to start make money on line.
