There are many ways to make money online. But this article contains the method I personally use to make $100 per day.

Step1: Decide two ways of making money. I personally make money from list building and affiliate marketing. I work full time focusing on building my list and promoting the affiliate product.

Step2: Write a free ebook and giveaway to the people who subscribe to your list. For your affiliate product, create a blog with 5 articles related the product, including a review of the product.

Step3: Initially, dedicate

your time for both list building and promoting affiliate products. Subscribe to the newsletters of 5 experts in your niche and observe how they are promoting their
products. Make a list of their promotional activities. Start implementing them.

Make a list of promotional campaigns that worked for you. Repeat the methods to promote your site.

Once you have a list of 200, you can start making money by promoting your products to your subscribers. Communicate with your subscribers and try to offer the products they desire.

Once you start making a steady income of $200 per month (you can achieve this in a month), focus on promoting the affiliate product. Implement the same marketing methods that you used for building your list. Apart from that, invest $50 - $100 per month on paid advertising.

Do you want to know what 90% of millionaire level marketing experts use for traffic? It's not f'ree traffic, it's paid traffic.

I extensively invest on banner advertising in niche blogs. They do not cost more than $50 per month and I make a minimum of 5 sales from each blog.

Let me tell you another secret. Try to promote products related to dating, fitness and forex. Write 5 articles daily with a link to your blog in the resource box and submit them to ezinearticles.com. These niches do so well in ezinearticles.com that you can easily get 100
views per article.

Let us make some calculations. Let us assume that if 100 people read your article, 10 of them will click on your link. You can expect 1 sale for every 100 visitors. This means that you can make a sale every alternative day. Now, if you get a commission of $20 per sale, you can
easily make $1000 per month.

Repeat, repeat and repeat. Repeat whatever worked for you. Within a couple of months (It took 5 months for me), you can easily make $3000 per month.

The internet has taken the world like a storm. Almost all people around the world are now very knowledgeable about it, most especially the new generation. Children as young as 4 years old already know the different internet applications from child-friendly games, grammar tutorials and other interesting supplementation for kids. Majority of the learning institutions already use computer-aided instructions. It was totally absorbed and applied by the people in general, to their daily lives.

In line with this new technology is the blogging phenomenon. It is so popular nowadays that e

ven businesses have turned into online advertising of their company products and services. Many stay at home moms were given the chance to work while taking care of their families. The best thing is, they can always work at their most convenient time. More and more people are now turning to the internet for other sources of money while some people are now starting to work at home full time and trying to be their own boss.

Thousands of blogs are being developed everyday. Name it and they have it. Whatever niche you want, thousands of blogs can be found from daily journal to health to travel to social networking to business and the most popular now is, how to make money online. Some people even quit their day jobs once they are able to reach their target earnings so they can work at home full time.

Setting-up a blog is the first and the easiest part. If you want to earn money from it, then you must be ready to work harder on the first six months. You have to post regularly. If possible, two (2) to three (3) posts everyday. In this way, it would be indexed faster and the more content you have means more reason for people to visit your blog. A blog, in order to have returning visitors, needs to have quality content and has to be updated regularly. Below are some of the ways on how most bloggers can earn from their blogs. If you are a new blogger, you better take note of these tips. If you have been blogging for a few months already, you may have forgotten some of these tips and maybe re-asses your strategy. It is always best to review and get some inputs from other people to give us fresh and other methods on how to do the process of online money making successfully.

Google Adsense is the most popular way to earn money online nowadays. Google is a giant company and many advertisers find them reliable. The number of clients they have is huge compared to the other advertising networks online. Many professional bloggers earn thousands every month. Some a few hundreds, while majority (beginners) a few dollars a month. You have to accumulate $100 earnings in order for you to receive a payout.

In order to be accepted by Google and start earning money from them, you must have a blog. You have to set it up, produce and post informative and high quality contents, drive traffic to it and have a professional looking design. In this way, it would be easier for your blog to be accepted by them. Once you are accepted, you can already post google ads which are either text ads, link ads or video ads to name a few.

Paid Blogging – when your blog reaches three (3) months old, with regular posting and with a good amount of traffic, you can apply for paid blogging jobs. Many advertisers want to advertise in blogs with niches similar to what their company is endorsing. Others advertise in general blogs. So, the niche of your blog would matter. It is best to create a general blog but specialized niches like travel, health and how to make money online are also popular to advertisers. You can apply in blogging networks like Blogsvertise, Sponsored Reviews, Review Me and BlogtoProfit, to name a few. There are still more. You just have to search at google, “get paid to blog” or “paid blogging” and a listing will appear. Payperpost is the most popular, however, they are so strict with their rules. You must have at least three(3) posts in a week and there should be a higher ratio of non-paid posts to paid posts in your blog.

Affiliate Marketing – once you have been blogging for a few months, you will learn about affiliate marketing. What is affiliate marketing? It is the process of marketing other people or company’s products where you earn a certain percentage or commission for every sale. There are many affiliate companies online. You have Clickbank which is the most popular, Linkshare, Commission Junction, More Niche and many more. For affiliate marketing, you can join these sites and once accepted, you can choose the products you want to endorse. You can make a review about the product in your blog and add a link to the page of the product you are endorsing. People love reading reviews about the items they want to purchase and your review at your blog will help a lot. Many people earn hundreds from it alone monthly. Others even earn a few thousands. Not bad for a side income. Some people though make it their full time job already.

On-site Ads/Link Sales – you can also sell ad spaces at your blog. One way to get advertisers is by advertising in forums. This is an effective technique but your prices have to be competitive and reasonable. You have to maintain also regular posting and driving more traffic to your blogs so advertisers will be more interested to get a spot. The prospective advertisers often like to advertise their banner ad on blogs. So, be sure you set banner ad spots in different ad size for sales.

Text Link Ads – some companies will pay you for the links from your blog. Some of these are Kontera, Infolinks, Backlinks and Inlinks to name a few. You will be asked to add a code to your blog which will be generated by them. Once it is installed, the links at your blogs will be highlighted and once the visitor clicks on it, he will be redirected to a page with the advertisers’ information and ads. You will earn money once the visitor stays there for a few minutes and more so, if they visit more sites from the given list.

Earning money online is possible. We just have to research more on the topic. This is the reason why experienced bloggers create posts like this one in order to share and help new bloggers become successful. The journey is not easy. It is not a get-rich overnight scheme. It needs hard work, patience and perseverance. However, once you start earning from your blog, the income opportunity keeps coming every month. The opportunities are endless.

Although you must have begun blogging for business after carefully selecting a good theme for your blog, you still need to be very sure of knowing your target audiences before you actually come up with your blog. It is important to understand the kind of people you want to address in your blog before you go ahead and start posting content on it. You need to do proper research else you will fail in your goal of creating the blog.

The people who surf the web have diverse backgrounds and liking so it is important that you understand what segment of the market you want to target. Which
Read More
is your target market and this largely depends on the kind of service or product you offer. Once you identify the target market, it becomes easy for you to devise your blog in way that caters to the needs and interests of the customers. The nature of the product decides the demography of your customer. Before coming up with a theme for your blog you need to draft a kind of profile of your prospective customer whom you want to address in your blog. The target market segment comes with the basic demographic profile that can be segregated on basis of age, gender, and social or economic status.

• Age: what does your target market actually covers, does it comprise of children, teenagers, adults, or senior citizens?
• Gender. Are your target clients male, female, or transgender?

When considering the theme of your blog you should make sure that the theme of your blog or profile should match the target audiences. The above mentioned classification can be really broad but they certainly cover all the probable categories of the clients. These profile or sets of traits should match the characteristics or features of the products or services that you are offering. Remember, however, that these classifications are still relatively broad and apply only to basic commodities where product differentiation by consumers is still not so distinct. Examples are medicines or medical services, foods, educational services, and others.

For stricter market segmentation, you can differentiate your target markets or narrow them further according to customer temperaments, needs, goals, and fears. Specifically, you can distinguish them according to:

• Needs – sense of accomplishments, sense of belonging, self actualization
• Goals – productivity, efficiency, savings, safety
• Temperaments – serious, happy go lucky, complacent
• Fears – old age, poverty, ill health, rejection

There are still more categories to further narrow your market segment such as educational attainment, life style, mindset, family size, political views, etc. These are relevant if the products or services that you are offering are highly specialized or customized such as travel or vacation packages, luxury cars, high tech gadgets, and other.

Having a clear picture of the common characteristics of your target market when blogging for business will help you decide what theme or blog design to use, the appropriate mode or tone of your article, and the right web graphics that you need to employ.

These details may overwhelm you at first. But, you should realize that your purpose for blogging is to attract web users who are more likely to use your products or services and to influence them to buy and patronize what you offer. Bear in mind as well that customers now are more discriminating, especially if the products are quite expensive. They scrutinize details and compare them with competing brands.

So to make your blog more effective, know your products well and create a profile of your target market based on your products' characteristics and features. Then, post blog content that will appeal to your target market. Remember, your business blog is created to generate sales. Keep your focus so you will not waste time and effort when blogging for business.

You're probably here because you want to make money online which is why I wanted to put this quick post together for you. I'm going to tell you how you can make money online by harnessing the knowledge that you already have....And if you don't already have the knowledge, then you can learn it in no time at all!

It's really important that you read to the end of this article because you'll be armed with all the instruction you need to earn a passive income online by selling digital information.

Did you realise that selling information
Read More
products is a multi-million dollar business online? In fact, one guy alone (he goes by the name of Eben Pagan) has generated over 100 million dollars in revenue solely by selling digital information products online. So, now you understand the overwhelming potential of this business, let me tell you how to do it!

How Do You Make Money Online by Selling Information Products?

Firstly, you need to decide whether you want to sell your own information products or whether you want to sell other people's information products for commission. If you're starting out in this business and you want to get your feet wet, then I'd suggest selling the work of someone else to learn the marketing strategies that you'll need before you start to create your own products.

Let me just quickly say that once you have made money online as an affiliate, I recommend that you become a product creator as soon as you feel comfortable doing so. As an information product creator, you can then have an army of affiliates selling your products (rather than the other way round) – and of course you'll make money with each sale. In short, you have a high earning potential as a product creator instead of being just an affiliate.

In this article, I want to tell you about a web site that will allow you to find thousands of digital information products that you can sell today....The site is called Clickbank.

Tell Me More About Clickbank...

Clickbank contains a huge library of digital assets that have already been created and are ready to be sold. This means that you don't have to go through the time consuming process of creating your own information products.

There are a few great features about Clickbank that you should be aware of:-

Firstly, they handle all transactions which means you don't have to worry about payment processing and security – all that complicated stuff is taken care of.

Secondly, Clickbank pay out on time, every time. I have been an affiliate with Clickbank for a long time now (I also have a few products on there too) and they have never missed a pay cheque. You can paid every two weeks directly into your bank account or by check if you prefer.

Thirdly, they provide sophisticated analytics so you can see how many people you have referred to the sales page of a product, how many of those visitors viewed the order form and, of course, how many of them purchased the product.

So, What Do I Have to Do to Make Money with Clickbank?

The first thing you need to is sign up for an account at http://www.clickbank.com. By doing this you will be set up with a unique username (the correct terminology in Clickbank is “nickname”) and this will be the nickname that is used to form what's called affiliate links.

Now, to make money as an affiliate you simply need to get people to click on your affiliate link so that they are taken to the product sales page and then when they buy the product you earn a commission.

One of the great reasons for promoting information products online is that the profit margin is so high. If you tried to become an affiliate for Amazon.com (to sell physical products) then you'd typically only expect to earn 5% of the total value of the product. As a Clickbank affiliate, it is normal to earn 50% and sometimes even 75% of the product value for making sales.

Where Can I Find The Products to Promote?

There is a section within Clickbank called the “Marketplace”. In here you'll find a series of categories (“Health and Fitness” for example) and under each category there are a list of products. You can choose any one of the products to promote and you can generate your affiliate links by clicking on “Promote”.

Once you have generated your affiliate link (or “hoplink” as they're known on Clickbank) you can then add the link to your web site, email signatures, articles...Anywhere you like...to get people to buy through that link.

Once you've decided on a marketing strategy, you then simply need to get traffic. I will be publishing another post that will talk about all the traffic strategies I use to make money by selling information products (the majority of my online income comes from selling digital products) very shortly.

Information Products are the Way to Go!

I have to say that once you've got a system for marketing digital products online, it is really just a case of replicating that system for different products. And once you're at this stage then you can pretty much scale your income up to heights you wouldn't believe.

YouTube is one of the most common and biggest social networking websites online today. Millions of web surfers browse through the YouTube site monthly in search of videos that in their chosen niches. There are traffic generating potentials from YouTube but you may not be able to leverage this fact if you don't know the right steps to take and how to perform certain simple traffic-oriented tasks using your YouTube videos. If you had been reading how lots of other website owners had been getting loads of traffic from YouTube, it is time for you to join t
Read More
he successful train and start experiencing very meaningful traffic to your website from YouTube. The right step to take are outlined in this brief discuss.

What You Must Know In Order To Drive More Traffic to Your Site Via YouTube

It isn't rocket science to drive traffic from YouTube irrespective of the type of business you are doing. Saying this is important because some site owners may unnecessarily be intimated by the huge results of those that had been there before them. The skill you have or whatever qualification you may have wouldn't count if you fail to read and digest the following three important YouTube traffic tips.

1 - The first thing is to submit your videos to YouTube. Don't be deterred if you don't know how to create and upload any video at the moment because it doesn't take more a couple of minutes. Essentially you will need free 'Camstudio' which is readily available on the internet to create any prolific video to be shown on YouTube. If you are among those internet marketers that still find it difficult to join the social marketing 'war-fare'; you have to wake up today if you really want your online business to survive.

While using YouTube as a traffic-driving medium, you have to ensure you give your videos adequate titles. This is important because there are lots of marketers that make the mistake of titling their YouTube videos for the search engines. This may not yield the desired popularity for such video because the search engines are becoming smarter than they were few months back. The best option is to give your videos proper titles that will appeal to humans and be sure of its popularity once it starts getting shared and voluntarily linked to on the internet.

The basics concept of any video you upload online should be to either entertain or educate so you have to carefully make it worth your viewers' while. If you have some educational or informative tips to give, nothing prevents you from sitting in front of your computer and recording 2 or 3 minutes clean video of yourself talking. This is quite acceptable online and can go viral as long as you have useful or informative content in the video.

2 - You shouldn’t forget to include the link to your website or blog in any video you create and upload to the YouTube. This is very important especially if your sole aim of uploading such video is to drive traffic to your online or offline business. The time you spent on the video creation may have been wasted if you fail to provide link back to your site so that those that view your videos can click-in to your blog or site to see more of your offerings. It is common to believe that many viewers wouldn’t type in the URL in the YouTube videos but the truth is that many actually do.

You Can Create a Community of YouTube Video Viewers

3 - This is similar to asking potential clients to subscribe to your newsletter but in this case, they would be subscribing to your YouTube channel so that they will know when you post new videos. This can effectively bring repeated traffic to your site especially if you have very insightful videos on display. You can simply ask people to subscribe to your YouyTube video channel by mentioning it at the beginning and the end of your videos but be sure to make your videos are informative as possible.

You have a wonderful blog that you have started recently. But you are worried about the number of visits or traffic to your blog and almost quit blogging. Well, if you work hard and explore other successful bloggers you will know a lot on how to run your blog successfully with a good number of visitors.

I'm going to share how you can increase your traffic by commenting on others' blogs.

How many of you comment on other blogger's posts in your niche?

Do you know commenting on other blogs in your niche is one of the most important

things for a blogger?

Following are the reasons why every blogger should comment on the blogs of his/her niche.

• The immediate benefit you will get is traffic to your blog. You might be following so many other things like link exchange, submitting your blog to blog directories etc to drive traffic to your site. But none of them will get you the 'quality' traffic. Commenting on the blogs of your niche will help you get the quality traffic.
• What makes you comment on other's blog? The obvious answer is their posts. So, you would obviously go through their posts before posting a comment. By going through different posts on different blogs, there is a great chance of you getting some good ideas for you to write a great post on your blog. Reading that many posts will also make you know how to write better and attracting posts.
• Post valid and good comments regularly. By dooing so, there are great chances of people getting interested to know you. Make friends with them. This helps your blog getting linked by them.
• If you keep commenting, you will also get more comments to your blog. Whatever you put out comes back to you. So, keep commenting.
• Search for new blogs in your niche once in a while and comment on them too. This helps you expose yourself to new people in your niche.
• Add value to the conversation with your comment.

But wait! This is not everything. There are a few other things to consider before you comment.

• Your comments should not be like "great post", "nice blog", "Thanks for the great post" etc. You'll be considered a comment spammer if you do so.
• Your comments should be related to the topic.
• Tell him what you like and why you like.
• Don't always put a link to your blog in your comment signature. Add the link back to your blog only if you feel it is relevant to the post.
• Don't add more comments on the same post. It can hurt you more than it helps.

Blogging is not just about what you want to say. What good does it make you, if you don't have visitors to read your blog. So, reach out to people, expose yourself to new friends, new ideas.
Have fun!

How did you get benefited by commenting? Share any other practices that I missed?

facebook, it is very essential that you create a separate facebook business page for your business on facebook even if you already have a personal facebook account. This should be the vital first step. Doing this is important because your business should be separated from your personal profile or in you may discover that visitors could begin to socialize and share personal pictures on their personal facebook pages. This certainly isn’t the best practice if you are on facebook for marketing purposes. You simply have to give your business a different identity from your personal facebook activities.

The need to access the pages of facebook is important because you have to create your business profile in this page and begin to project what your business stands with great focus and determination. It is even very interesting to note that there are lots of advertising tools you would use in facebook pages for better optimizations of your marketing campaign. You really have to take advantage of these valuable tools while starting out your marketing with facebook. You shouldn’t get scared when we mentioned these facebook pages because it doesn’t require any special skill to set up. You can easily set it up the same way you got your personal profile page up.

Marketing with facebook is even made much easier by the free access to visitors analytics tools and a precise report on your fan base as well as their activites. This will help you to know the kind of persons or businesses that are following your updates. It is very easy for you to constantly send your updated facebook pages to other facebook accounts that are following your page. The importance of sending these sorts of message to your fans is more appreciated when you want to alert them of certain new developments in your business. That way, you would be sure that they got your message and the possibility of getting positive response is always higher if your fan base constitutes mostly of visitors who are interested in your kind of business.

There are lots of innovative ideas that are being added to facebook by the owners and the employees just to make sure those businesses such as yours get the very best from facebook marketing. You don’t have to let this unique and explosive marketing avenue slip because over 400 million users are huge enough to accommodate any kind of business. There are lots of Facebook Marketing Solutions to choose from such as the Direct Targeted Marketing Tools and the Engagement Ads. You also have more options such as commenting, fanning, sharing, applications, events and so on. If you hadn’t looked at the possibility of marketing with facebook, you may also need to know that these marketing tools would cost you little or nothing to utilize.
