When I first started my internet marketing journey a little while back I was looking for an effective and efficient way to start making an income online. I wasn’t sure what was the best way to start making money online. There were so many different ways that I heard about on how to make money online. It really was information overload, which I’m sure you have had the same feeling too.
I have made many mistakes. I have tried a lot of different things to start to make money online. Let me tell you about why so many people find it difficult to start making an income online.
If you are anything like me when I first came online wanting to build an income I found it hard to actually know who to trust. Most times I would end up more confused than I already was in the first place.
Who do you trust?
I would learn a new way of generating traffic or making money online. However, I may not take action, because I didn’t trust the person that was telling me the information. I would always think “is that person (really) making money with what he or she is telling me or are they full of crap”.
I can assure you that everything that I will show you I will use in my own business. The methods and techniques are not to be taken lightly. I am no guru. I’m just an average guy that is going to discover in this maze of internet marketing stuff what will work.
There are many ways that you can build an income online, using many different business models such as cpa, ADSENSE, LIST BUILDING, plr, creating software, BLOGGING, AFFILIATE MARKETING, ppc, ebay, writing articles and the list goes on.
Focus on one or two things!
The turning point for me is going to be, I am going to start focusing on one or two things until I see results and then just continue to rinse and repeat.
Unless you know what the best place is to start you could still end up wasting a lot of time and money just as I have done. However, the items I have listed above and highlighted in bold have made me money in the past. Therefore, that is where I am going to build my business from and this Blog is my beginning and all of the bolded elements above can be done from and through a blog.
Now you may already be using some of my recommended income streams if so that’s excellent you are certainly on the right track. If you’re not using one of the aforementioned income streams then you should certainly consider one of those as a place to start. It will give you a great foundation to progress from, later in your internet marketing career.
Affiliate Marketing is the best way to Start Making Money Online!
The business model that I will use will be affiliate marketing or niche marketing. Although its only one business model in my opinion this is by far the best way to start creating an income online. You will learn some great skills which will prove to be vital if you plan on taking your online business seriously. Also another reason why this is such a great model to start generating an income from. You don’t need your own product or list, you simply build a web page or blog, generate traffic and then watch your conversions that’s all there is too it. That also applies to adsense, amazon, jvzoo, warrior plus and clickbank.
My advice would be to start with google adsense because you get to know about different niches, how to build sites, keywords, link building and SEO plus much more. Adsense is a great way to start because it’s certainly profitable. Don’t listen to anyone that tells you otherwise, they don’t know what they’re talking about. The key is to keep at something long enough so that you master that one method. You will start to make a reasonable income from it. The reason why some people may think that adsense is no good or is dead is because they are no good at it. They can’t make money from it so then they tell everyone else that its no good, hence (leaving you confused) just as I was saying earlier.
If you are already making money with adsense then that is excellent. You have taken action. If your struggling to make any half decent money from it then don’t worry. I will be providing some great information on this blog so that you can see how it can be done.
I started working with adsense a long time ago. Now I am really going to start taking it seriously. I also use amazon, jvzoo, warrior plus and clickbank. I will go into these at another time.
The key is to start with adsense. Then once you get a lot more confident in your SEO skills and general marketing you can then diversify into other areas. Such as clickbank and amazon so that you diversify your income more providing you with a more stable online business.
One last thing I will say and I’ve saved this till last because its the most important as some people really do not get this and end wasting a ton of time on other things.
Leverage search engines for free organic traffic!
When you spend time online building your income you should be doing it in the most effective and efficient way possible. Especially when trying to build any kind of income in the beginning stages. You should be leveraging search engines for free organic traffic to your advantage so that you can attract traffic to your sites every single day. Build your sites in such a way that the traffic will continue to come and increase over time as your site matures within the search engines. Gaining more trust and authority in the eyes of Google, Yahoo and Bing. Search engines should be a major player in your business. You will continue to get traffic and customers even while you sleep.
This is by far the best way to generate free traffic and over time. As long as you have optimized your site well enough and everything is above board. Then google will continue to send you traffic for a very long time.
I hope this post has made clear where you should be starting and where to spend your time in regards to traffic generation.
I will be adding lots more content and videos over the coming weeks. Showing exactly how to do what I have stated above. There are so many videos out there that I watch that never fully explain things. So if you want to finally understand how the complete jigsaw comes to together in terms of building a profitable adsense site, amazon site, blog and lots of clickbank tips plus loads more internet marketing cool stuff then look out for my future posts.
