That big “M” word
Money is talked about all over the internet and yet only a few seems to know how to make it. Making money isn’t complicated, it just takes time and effort. If you want to know how to earn extra income, you need to translate making money into helping people. Here are my 6 ways on how to earn money online for free.
“Anybody who succeeds is helping people. The secret to success is finding a need and fill it; find a hurt and heal it; find a problem and solve it.”
Robert H. Schuller
The first thing is first
You’re going to need a presence online, without that your hope of making money is gone. Good news is making a website is very easy, so easy you can make is in 30 seconds.
#1 Selling other companies products
That’s what affiliate marketing is all about, getting people to come to your site and buy what you enjoy talking about. Traffic is driven to your site because they want to hear what you have to say. Once you develop a connect with them you can offer them a product from another company and get the commission off it.
Most companies out there want help selling their products and are willing to give you a commission if you sell it for them. Saves them time and effort, plus you get paid so it’s a win-win scenario.
Other affiliate marketing programs out there are
- Commission Junction
- BlueSnap used to be Plimus
Once you find a program, look for a product you can’t stop talking about and go from there.
#2 Using AdSense and other marketing programs
Google Adsense are ad codes that you can add to your website. When visitors click on your ads you will get paid for it. The payout to you depends on competition and demand, it varies highly from $0.1 up to $15 – 20 per click.
Other ad programs out there are
Just as a FYI, Adsense codes can only be added onto domain websites. .siterubix sub domains can’t use AdSense codes.
#3 List building
All that traffic coming through your website is great and even better if you can build a list of loyal visitors. You can do this with an email gathering program, there are a few out there but my favorite is a weber. It is easy to use and it keeps track of your emails, follow up emails and broadcast emails to your different lists.
Amazon had an affiliate program that lets you sell their products. Whats unique about amazon is that if they decide not to buy what your talking about and buy something else instead, you still get credit. The percentage you get is 4%, but the more you sell, the more you make.
#5 Relevant Advertisers
Another way to make money is by going directly to companies and ask if they want to advertise on your site. Make a note though that at this point your going to want a lot of traffic coming to your site because companies are going to be asking for this. This strategy is a way to capitalize on what your are already doing and can be a long term goal.
#6 Create your own product
This is the ultimate long term goal, building a product you can sell to others. I don’t recommend this to anyone starting out, affiliate marketing is where you should be when starting out. Of course once you have built a huge following, your audience is naturally going to want you to build a product.
