Are you are looking for the best way to make money online, but feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information out there? I know exactly what it’s it like to be bombarded with emails advertising the latest product and yes, I have been sucked into buying a few of them.
The secret is to find a simple formula which suits your level of experience and your pocket.
Here is a basic 10 step process which has been successful for many marketers.
Step #1 Choose Your Niche
This could be an area you know a lot about or one you are interested in learning about. There must already be products and services which sell in this niche and plenty of customers who buy them and are likely to buy similar products.
Step #2 Choose Your Monetization Model
You need to decide how you are going to make money. There are many ways to do this online and you need to choose one which will work for you. Examples which are good starting points for beginners are money from advertising, such as AdSense and income from sales of other people’s products you sell as an affiliate.
Step #3 Build Your Website
You can choose to build a site or blog on a free platform or on your own domain. It is better to use your own domain as you have more control over your site. You can choose from a variety of html editors which will help you build your site without much technical knowledge.
Step #4 Create a Free Gift
To get people to come back to your site and to join your mailing list, you need to offer something of value for free, such as a report or piece of software relating to the niche.
Step #5 Get an Auto responder
In order to build your mailing list and send out automatic posts, you need a good quality auto responder such as Aweber or getreponse.
Step #6 Set Up a Squeeze Page
This is a page which only offers visitors two options – they either sign up for your free gift or they leave the page. There are no links to anything else.
Step #7 Write Articles
There are many ways to do this and one of the best is article marketing, which involves writing articles providing interesting and useful information on the niche topic and including links to your squeeze page or other pages on your site
Step #8 Write Follow up Emails
You need to build a relationship with the people on your mailing list and you can do this by sending out informative emails which help them answer the questions they have about the niche.
Step #9 Make Videos
Videos are a great way to increase the number of visitors to you site. You can recycle your articles by creating a slide show presentation and using windows movie maker or a similar programme to create screen shot videos.
Step #10 Create Your Own Products
Once you have learned how to market other people’s products, it’s time to start creating your own. You can choose to improve on existing products or make products which complement them.
The trick is to take it step by step and work on each step until it is completed.
