When it comes to making money online in your internet business, there are really only three options available for you.
1. Make money with advertising
The first option that you have to make money online is to use ads or adverts. Now I do not mean actually spending money on advertising your stuff. I mean by placing ads on your website. We are going to go and take a look at that.
What this means is you get paid for putting ads on your site, and whenever people click on those ads you get commission. The only difficulty with that is you have got to have a lot of content.
2. Make money with affiliate products
The second option for you for making money online is to sell affiliates?products. This is where you promote other people?s products, and you make a commission. You send people from your website to the product owner?s website, and when a person buys that product you get a kick-back in commission.
The benefits of affiliate marketing are that you do not have to deal with any customer issues. You do not have to supply anything or provide anything or do any shipping or produce any products, you are just acting as the middle person.
3. Make money with your own products
The third option for you is to create your own product. This is where you actually sit down and you would create your very own product, whether it is an e-book, a video, or a coaching program ? something that you create and you are the originator of.
These are really the only three options for making money online in your internet business. Which is the best option for you?
Let?s take a look at the first one using ads, placing adverts on your website and getting paid when people click on them.
The most popular way to do that is using the Google Adsense program. It is free to sign up. What happens is you have a website with content and you place the ads. They will appear somewhere on your website. The ads automatically show relevant advertisements depending on the type of content, the text that you have on that website.
People come along, they visit your website, and if they see an ad that is relevant to them, and then they click on the ad, you get paid. This all sounds great in theory, and it can be a good way to make money, but the only thing is you do need a lot of content in order to actually make good money because there is a formula. And the formula for making money online is as follows. Content = clicks = cash
Now obviously you are interested in getting that fast cash. Before you can get the cash, you need to get people to click on your ads. Before you can get people to click on your ads, you need traffic. In order to get traffic, you need to have content. That is particularly relevant with Adsense and these type of programs, where you get paid to show other people?s ads. You need a lot of content. If creating a lot of content is not your idea of fun, if you do not like sitting down and writing out a lot of articles and content, then maybe using ads is not the way for you.
In fact, I believe the best way to get started making money online in your internet business is to become an affiliate. As I said before, an affiliate is somebody who promotes other people?s products and gets paid a commission every time a sale is made. One of the leading websites where you can find a lot of affiliate products that you can promote is called ClickBank. The address is .
This is one of the best places to start to find good products to promote. I feel that this is one of the best ways for you to start making money online is to become an affiliate, because you do not need to create a lot of content. To become an affiliate, you can do it with just one webpage. You do not need hundreds or thousands of web pages like you do for the ad networks to get a lot of money. You can just have one page.
You can have some content on that page that explains or reviews a product. You can then have a link at the bottom of that page that says, ?Click here to buy the product?. People click on that. It is what is known as your unique affiliate link, and when people click on that and they go off to the product page and they buy that product you get paid. That is really how easy it is to become an affiliate marketer.
Now the other option for you when you are starting out is to find ready-made products. This is also called resale rights. These are products that other people have created and completed and you can buy the rights to sell them. It means you do not have to do all the product creation, all the research. It is an easy way to be up and running very, very quickly. The type of products that you can get hold of are ebooks, different types of software, etc., -- things that you can buy the rights to actually sell.
Those are three options. Let me just give you those again real quick:
* You can place ads on your website.
* You can become an affiliate marketer and start recommending affiliate products.
* You can create or buy ready-made products.
