No B.S. Straight Talk – How To Make Money Online

First of all, there’s no magic pill…

It’s not like Morpheus is going to hold out his hands to you and say, “Red pill or the blue pill?”

I am sensing a lot of guys are shouting “blue pill”?

Well, there’s work to be done…

I think a lot of people are frustrated, tired, and quit after spending a lot of money but not seeing the result.

Right, you spent a lot of money…

And right, you spent a lot of time…

But then again, answer yourself this, “Did you really do anything?”

Did you get anything going that you can really call “putting an effort”?

I can guarantee that most of the times, people do one thing half-way, and then skip to another thing.

They read about affiliate marketing and jumped on that. But then they heard about pay-per-click, and jumped on that and left the earlier affiliate marketing hanging… then they discovered writing ebooks and thought, “why don’t I write an ebook myself?”

Guess what’s after that?

Yep… writing is too tough. So they went back to PPC and burn more money. Then they heard about outsourcing, and burn more there…

And on, and on…

I am sure you get the idea.

Hmmm… I have an answer to a problem like this…

Let me cut through the B.S… a straight answer on how to make money online (or anywhere).

Step 1: You need an audience…

Step 2: You need to make them an offer…

Alright about Step 1. There’s two ways of going about it. You can gather your own audience, or you can find others who have gathered an audience.

Gathering your own audience is like building a list, a community website (like niche forum, blogging, etc) or anything that brings people to you, which includes traffic generation skills like SEO, PPC or even Bum marketing.

Another way, is by finding others who already have audience.

This is like advertising on other people’s website, ezine, or maybe finding JV partners, etc… you get the idea here, right.

When you have an audience, whether it’s yours or not, you can present them with relate offers.

About that offer, that too can be your own or others. You can create your own product, you can join affiliate programs that offers related product… or here’s another way…

If you gathered your own audience, like when you are blogging or built a forum, or a very popular website, you can sell advertising space…

There’s so many ways to make money online … but what ever it is, it will generally fall in these two steps.

And yes, even when you are selling a service.

Now, what can YOU do to make money online?

Tough question — but I guess a simple answer I can give right now is this — leverage on your strength.

If you have strong focus, attention to detail, won’t get bored easily, you can try SEO or PPC. Those are tough, even when you outsource because it requires attention to details.

If you have money, try out PPC, banner ads, etc. If you don’t have money, learn SEO and bum marketing. And promote affiliate programs like Clickbank, etc…

If you are good with people, you can pickup JV brokering. I am sure there some good courses out there.

If you have technical skills, you can offer services. Put up a website with 1) your sample of work 2) testimonials 3) a form to request for a quote.

Another thing for technical guys, which includes organized people… you can giveaway tools or resources like software or document templates. This can be web templates, business templates, 3D object templates for 3D software, graphic templates, diagrams, charts, etc…

What do you do with that? Giveaway for free and build either a list or a community. Because with good resources or tools, you can build either…

Then you’d have an audience. You know what to do when you have an audience — present them with offers.

If you have great knowledge and experience, and you can write — write an ebook. If a book is too tough for you, then write a short report and sell them cheap. When you sell them cheap and you offer affiliate program with that (maybe using $7 script), you are also building an audience.

Take a look at yourself and see what it is that you are good at the leverage on that to get yourself started.

When you do that, you won’t be jumping around from opportunity to opportunity. Because you must be at least good the things that you are good at, right?

And doing things that you are good at is a breeze…

Stop leaving projects hanging, unfinished…

I had a looked at myself…

Well, what am I good at?

I am good at web design and programming. That’s why most of my projects are related to both or either one of those two.

- OptinDesign.com
- MiniSiteGallery.com
- DIYMiniSite.com
- WOWPopUp.com

I am going to be honest… I got distracted too. I wanted to pursue other things like PPC, SEO, bum marketing. But why not do things that you are good at first…

If you’ve made enough money leveraging on your strength, maybe then you can set aside a budget for “side projects” and see where that takes you.

But always, leverage on your strength first…

Now, I need to get back to creating an awesome mini-site creation system — using WordPress.

It’s my strength — design and programming…

All the best… go get’em!
