  4. 4. Make Money Online Guide What Do You Need To Make Money Online The fear of the getting started process tends to make people procrastinate in starting an online business of their own. That fear usually boils down to the fact that they just don’t know how to do it, or where to even start. This guide will help you with this process, so you can lay your fears to rest and move through the getting started phase with ease. Let’s start with some commonly asked questions that most newbies have in the getting started process. “Do I have to have special skills or degrees to start my own online business?” You will need to have some knowledge in the field you’re going to embark in, but it’s not necessary to have any business or college degrees to accomplish starting your own business. Of course, it will depend on the type of business you want to start. College degrees and experience are always helpful in gaining expertise in a field, but you usually don’t have to have any degrees to have your own online business. Knowledge has more power online, so reading everything you can get your hands on that deals with your field will more important. “Will it cost a lot of money?” Starting your own online business doesn’t generally cost much money. The money you put into it is mostly for a computer, internet access and a website. “Will I still be able to start my own business online, even if I’ve never run my own business before?” Absolutely. Hundreds of Internet Marketers have started their own businesses and made a success of it without having any previous business experience. Again, it all adds up to how much time and effort you put into your research. “How much money can I make from an online business?” This will vary on one factor - how much time and effort you put into it. -4-
  5. 5. Make Money Online Guide Some hard working internet marketers make a six figure income, while others (tle lazyones) make the same amount a full time fast food worker generally makes. “Do I need special business licenses to run an online business?” You will want to check with your local government agencies to determine what you will need in your area. Each area is different, so it’s best to check and see what you need before starting your business. To make money online you just need to complete the following steps: 1. Find a market with potential buyers 2. Build a website 3. Find a product to promote 4. Generate traffic to your website 5. Scale it! -5-
  6. 6. Make Money Online Guide How To Find A Market When selling a product, a lot of people make the mistake of developing their product first, and then trying to find a market for it. Of course, the process should be reversed. Find a market first that spends money, then find out what they want and give it to them. It is certainly easier said than done, but there are a lot of places online where you can do your market research for free. They've done most of the work for you already. You just need to know where to go and what to do to connect all the dots. 1. Brainstorm potential markets/niches Here are a few ways you can do this: • You first website should be related to your own hobbies and interests • Look at the magazine rack in your local newsagent for ideas • Identify current hot trends To identify current hot trends check out the hottest search trends at Google Hot Trends. Yahoo! Buzz is another site, like Google Hot Trends, where you can review the latest trends and look for hot topics to explore further -6-
  7. 7. Make Money Online Guide eBay Pulse is a great place that allows you to browse the Top 10 Most popular searches in every category and subcategory . This tool is based on actual searches performed by eBay users. Select the category first then look for potential sub-niches by then selecting a sub-category. Also, always check the largest stores as well to see what they’re selling. There has to be a reason they are the largest stores. They must be doing something right. Yahoo! Shopping is an excellent shopping portal to explore for potential markets/niches 2. Identify more targeted keyword phrases for each of the markets/niches You need to open up Google’s keyword tool which is located here: Google Keyword Tool Enter your phrase into the search box, set the languages and country search to ‘USA’ (USA is the best market in the world) and choose ‘English’ as the language -7-
  8. 8. Make Money Online Guide After doing this, click ‘Get Keyword Ideas’ to generate the results. Take a look at the screenshot below: Choose one of keyword phrases with at least 100,000 searches a month 3. Determine whether or not a particular niche is profitable Now that you have some potential niches to work with, you want to see how much of a market there is there. Fortunately, there is a very simple way to determine whether or not a particular niche is profitable. The answer can be found at Google.com – type in your keyword phrase and click search: -8-
  9. 9. Make Money Online Guide As you can see there are 8 people bidding on this term using Google Adwords. These are the paid ads on the right-hand side of Google. If there are people paying money to bid on a particular keyword phrase, then you know that this market is profitable. -9-
  10. 10. Make Money Online Guide How To Build A Website It`s easy to build a a professional looking website today – even if you don`t know html. You will need: 1. domain name 2. hosting 3. ftp client 4. wordpress with new theme and plugins 5. content – videos and articles 1. Domain name – Sign up for the free account at Namecheap - choose I register for : Business. Namecheap is the best registrar I've ever done business with. Then login and click Register a Domain ==> Free Domain Features. Search for available domains. Important tips: – buy domain name containing your keyword phrase, – only choose .com available domains, – if “yourkeywordphrase.com” is already registered add the, about, tips, reviews, articles, club etc. – don`t buy domains with hyphens or numbers – avoid copyright infringement – don`t use registered trademarks like pepsi, microsoft, google etc. Example: my keyword phrase is “deep sea fishing”, deepseafishing.com is taken, so I would buy thedeepseafishing.com which is available. I wouldn`t buy deep- sea-fishing.com nor 1deepseafishing2.com - 10 -
  11. 11. Make Money Online Guide 2. Hosting – you need reliable virtual (aka shared) hosting. I can recommend these companies: – Hostgator – Business package for 14,95$ per month – Atci Hosting – Virtual-01 for $14.95 per month – BlueHost – Basic plan for 95,4$ per year After purchase login to your hosting account and add MySQL database. Copy Database Name, Username and Password to notepad – this information will be needed to wordpress instalation. The welcome email you received from your hosting company provides you with the name servers you need to change your domain to. Login to your Namecheap account and click Manage Domains. Click your domain name and Transfer DNS to Webhost on the left. Enter name servers and click Save Changes. 3. Ftp Client – you need ftp client to upload content of your website to your server. Choose one of these clients: FileZilla or WinSCP. Both clients are free to use. Install the client on your PC and add new site profile – check out the welcome email from your hosting company for required information. 4. Wordpress – it is the best publishing platform available, it can easily be optimized for search engines and it is free to use. Go to Wordpress for the latest stable release. Download it to your computer into directory wordpress and unzip it. Rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp- config.php. Open wp-config.php in notepad and fill in your database details - Database Name, Username and Password . Put your Authentication Unique Keys – use random strings of letters and numbers. Then go to Wordpress Themes and choose nice looking theme – check out the Most Popular themes. Download this theme to your HDD (into directory wordpress/themes) and unpack it. - 11 -

Upload all contents of the unzipped theme directory (including the directory itself) into wp-content/themes/ Upload all contents of the unzipped plugin directories (including directories) into wp-content/plugins/ Upload all contents of directory “yarpp-templates” into wp-content/themes/your theme directory/.

  18. 18. Make Money Online Guide You need about 10-15 articles and 3-5 videos for your site. How To Find A Product There are thousands of affiliate programs on the net. For start I recommend these Affiliate Programs: 1. Amazon has been launched in 1995. It started as an online bookstore, but soon diversified to product lines of VHS, DVD, music CDs and MP3s, computer software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, toys, and so on. 2.

  19. 19. Make Money Online Guide The beautiful part is that Google will serve you the targeted links - links that are usually relevant to your site's content. Usually it takes some time to be accepted by affiliate programs. After acceptance start to look for the products related to your niche. Clickbank – log in to your account, click Marketplace and search for your keyword phrase: When you find interesting product, click create Hoplink: - 19 -
  20. 20. Make Money Online Guide copy and paste your Account Nickname and click Create. Copy link to a product and HTML code to notepad. Amazon – there are several options to promote Amazon products. In my opinion the best is to build Amazon Widgets. Log in to your account, click Widgets and then Carousel Widget.

  23. 23. Make Money Online Guide - 23 -
  24. 24. Make Money Online Guide Traffic Generation Sources of traffic: 1. Forums – Find message board communities that have topics that relate to your website. Your website link could go in the signature line allowing others to find their way to site to see what you have. Check with the rules of the board first to make sure this is allowed. By posting regularly on these forums, you can build credibility as an expert for that topic and gain some trust with some potential consumers who may be thinking about buying from you. Also, the other board members may refer people they know to your site, so make sure you give back as much as you receive with these communities. How to find forums in your target market? Go to BigBoards - huge directory that lists the largest forums online or search the google for phrase "your keyword phrase" + forum 2. Blogs – Find blogs that have the same kind of topic as your website. Post a reply on some of their posts. Your website link will be associated with your name and those looking for more information on that topic will check out your site or blog and see what you have to offer them. How to find these blogs ? Go to Technorati – the biggest blog directory or search the google for the following phrases: +"powered by wordpress" +"Leave a comment" +"your keyword phrase" site:wordpress.com +"Leave a comment" +"your keyword phrase" site:blogspot.com +"Post a comment" +"your keyword phrase” 3. Social Bookmarking Sites – there are two types of social bookmarking sites. To Digg, Reddit, Propeller, Mixx you can submit link to your article or video; to Delicious, Mister Wong, Stumble Upon, Oyax, A1-Webmarks, Jumptags, Netvouz you can submit link to your website. 4. Social Networking Sites – Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Linkedin. When it comes to promoting your website on social networking sites, you have two options. Your first option is to include a link to your website in your community profile or profile page. The other way is to inform your online friends of your website through private messages or newsletters. - 24 -
  25. 25. Make Money Online Guide Once you join a social networking website and create or join a network of friends, you should easily be able to communicate with those friends. Sending each of your friends a private message with information and a link to your website tends to be more effective than just placing a link in your profile or on your profile page. 5. Video sites – sign up for free account at biggest video sites - YouTube, Dailymotion and Metacafe. There are to options to promote your site. Your first option is to include a link to your website in your profile and start to comment on popular videos. Your second option is to make video using Windows Movie Maker or Camtasia, upload this video and include link to your site in video description. 6. Article directories – write or buy unique article and submit it to article directories - GoArticles, EzineArticles and ArticlesBase. Add a link to your website in the author’s bio section provided on the article directory sites. These directory sites usually rank well with the search engine results page, so someone stumbling upon one of your articles submitted within a directory can find their way over to your website for more information on that topic. 7. Press Releases - This option can be used if you’re just opening your doors or if you’re offering a discount or special sale. Press Releases are submitted to sites that publish them for internet users who are looking for specific information. They are written as if they’re a news story and they showcase your “news” with eye catching and attention grabbing headlines and information. Your sale, discount or business startup would get plenty of exposure to potential consumers and clients. A well written press release to announce what you are offering may just be what you need to drive a huge amount of traffic to your business website. Consider having one done on a period basis to help keep your business’ name fresh on people’s minds. Check out Press Release Tips for detailed instruction how to write press release. List of places you can submit your press releases for free: ClickPress, PRlog, Afly, PressExposure, - 25 -
  26. 26. Make Money Online Guide SanePR, PRurgent, PRBuzz, PRfree. Important note: You don`t need to use all of these traffic generation techniques! Better choose 3-4 methods and focus on them until you become an expert. For example: – one submission to Digg could bring in thousands of visitors – if it reach front page; – one interesting or controversial video uploaded to YouTube could be viewed by hundreds of thousands people and bring thousands of visitors to your site; – if your MySpace profile has several thousands of friends and you send them newsletter “I`ve just made a new site about deep sea fishing, take a look at it” you will get big traffic etc. Scale It! In contrary to scams “Make 6 figures income after one week” or “Make 2000 a day tomorrow” you will not become millionaire overnight. Online business is like every other business. You have to work at it consistently over time. You have to build it. You have to re-invest your profits. There are two options to scale it and make more and more money: 1. Constantly add more content to your website and generate more traffic 2. Build more websites Both options are equally good. The choice is yours Good Luck! - 26 -
