When you research ways to make money online, you’ll find that there are millions of people around the world trying to make a living online. The idea of working from your home computer and being able to pay for bills is incredibly popular. There are thousands of way to profit from online business, although some do require a lot of technical knowledge, there are some ways you can profit without knowing much.
Because of search engines like Google and Bing, people can target specific customers with the use of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) or SEM (Search Engine Marketing). There are a lot of different business models that people can implement over the web today, the key is to find a good value adding opportunity and profit from it.
Below are five easy and simple ways to make a cash system out of your desire from working online, a lot of these have made online millionaires, with all the tools available mostly for free.
Out of all the opportunities to make money online, this is by far the most basic. Due to the simplicity of the process, a lot of people are already familiar with the exchange of a product for money. This business model is exactly the same as a “brick and mortar” store where a customer visits your store and they purchase whatever you are selling to produce a profit.
There are several ways of doing this, one of the most popular ones is drop shipping, whereas you handle only the customer support and the orders themselves. The rest of the operation is handled by an outside company who packs, and ships the products.
You can also utilise your self made products and use Ebay or iOffer to sell them for a service charge per transaction and listing. Although I prefer having my own website, some of you might not have the necessary skills to produce one, yet.
Another way you can sell products is by creating sites with affiliate products, for example, a BANS store allows you to sell products from ebay.com without knowing much about programming or needing the actual products. Also consider using Clickbank or CJ to sell actual products.
Whenever you have the ability to create websites, people will want to talk to you. Because flipping websites is very easy.
Even if you don’t know how to build one, you can go on Digital Point Forums and find a few sites that are undervalued or not profitable yet, make them profitable and re-sell them on Flippa.com or other webmaster forums where the visitor is already experienced.
Also try finding domain names with good keywords that will rank high for a specific search term and get traffic, also domains with age and PR (Page Rank).
Cost Per Action (CPA) programs
Gathering leads is by far the fastest growing business online today, regardless of what anyone tell you, because it requires the visitor to perform an action, like imputing their name and phone number. Companies are willing to pay you more per “action” because of the information the visitor leaves.
This information then can be used to sell a product or service to your visitor. Popular CPA networks include Neverblue.com CJ.com or Copeac.com
This is a combination of CPA, selling products, and pay per click. Because you are selecting an individual industry, targeting the visitors, and selling products for merchants. Although it isn’t easy to sell anything to anyone, affiliate marketing is probably the fastest way for you to make money online without knowing much.
The important thing to remember is that you need to focus your energy on one category or product, because there are literally thousands of companies asking for your attention and investments. Remember that you are selling for them!
Whether you elect to sell actual products, gather leads, or sell virtual books, you need to stay focused, understand your target market, and make sure your investment of both time and money pay off.
Pay Per Click (PPC) programs
This business model is by far the most popular, not because it’s the most profitable, however because it requires very little work from your standpoint. All you need is a site or blog and some ad space. Then Google.com takes care of filling that ad space with relevant ads that target whatever audience your content is aimed at.
For example, if this site was aimed at making money online, most of the ads would be targeted at you who is looking for a way to make money online. Go to Adsense.com to sign up for the Adsense publisher network, make sure you have a nice site before you do though, google is relatively particular about who it allows to sign up.
