Sell!

Have an idea about making money online but don’t know where to start?

There are several ways to make money on the Internet – even if you don’t
have a product to sell. Keep in mind that running an online business
takes time and effort, just like running any business. However, you can
get started without any products, which is one less roadblock for most
people wanting to start a business.

You don’t need to be a computer expert to run an online business, but you
do need to either be able to set up a website, or have the resources to
pay someone else to do it for you.

Here are 3 simple ways to make money online even if you don’t have your
own product:

Affiliate programs
Being an affiliate means you are selling other people’s products, and you
get a percentage of the sale, or you make a small fee for each person who
requests more information. Most major retailers offer affiliate programs,
along with many smaller retailers (with lots of good products and
services). It’s not a good idea to try to compete with an established
retailer like Wal-Mart, Target, or Circuit City. A better way to make
money is to find a “niche” that serves a smaller group of people, that
you can easily reach.

For example, rather than selling sporting goods to everyone, you might
start a fishing site that sells canoes and fishing products to people who
like fresh water fishing. You can also find smaller retailers who may
offer more specialized products to those who know a lot about fishing,
while selling the basics from Wal-Mart to beginners.

A good place to start is Commission Junction (http://www.CJ.com), and
you’ll get an idea of the products you can offer. Be creative in finding
your niche, start with something you know a little about, or enjoy doing,
and before long you can be making money online!

Adsense from Google
Adsense is an advertising program from search engine Google.com (there
are other advertising programs you can offer, but for now Google’s is the
biggest and most popular). By placing ads on your site, you earn money
for each person who clicks on the ad. Google will automatically determine
which ads are best for your site, based on the topic of each web page.
All you have to do is place the code on your web page, and Google does
the rest.

You can also sell individual ads, and determine your own terms and price.
But using a program like Google is simple, and if your set gets a lot of
visitors, you can make good money. Again, the best way to succeed is to
find a niche, create a website around that topic, and Google will be able
to determine the best ads for your visitors.
Write a “How-To” booklet
If you don’t want to sell other people’s products, but don’t have a lot
of money to create your own, a simple way to get started is to write your
own “how-to” booklet. Pick a topic you know enough to write about, and
start writing. Information products are always good sellers – the key is
to solve a particular problem. “How to catch fresh water fish” or “How to
plan a fishing vacation on a tight budget” are possibilities for the
fishing niche mentioned above.

To learn more, do a search for “creating information products” or
“writing e-books”, and you will find lots of resources. Once you create
your product, Clickbank.com offers a simple service to help you sell your
information product, and there are others to help you get started.

Again, be creative, there are lots of problems out there that people need
help with. And offering a good solution can make you lots of money!

Making money online takes more than just building a website. You need to
pick the right products or services. Then you need to find the right
audience to sell those products and services. Then you need to promote
your website to enough people so you can make money. For now, you should
have enough ideas to get you started – even if you don’t have a product
to sell yet!
