Starting to Make Money Online

Some tips for internet marketing for beginners is to make money online: the visibility of the building, avoiding shortcuts and three popular ways to make money.

The first thing to keep in mind to make money on the internet does not expect success overnight. The Web is a vast ocean, and at first feels like goldfish for children around the small circles. Do not be discouraged - it's the mentality you have. Every company in the early days will require persistence and enthusiasm. It takes time to build an Internet presence, and in a few weeks or months, that the presence of growing and begins to bear fruit. Think of it as planting seeds, rather than building Lego. Stay there!


The first key to building a web presence is visibility. These days, the options to improve their visibility on the Internet and generate traffic are many - and multiply rapidly. The first thing you need after the primary site is a blog. Increasingly used as a promotional tool. Write articles, post updates, and do it regularly. Link to social media: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are the top three to go. These social tools are just beautiful to attract attention, so be sure to make good use of - to create an account for each and add the link to your website and blog. Update regularly. Do not let things stagnate. Keep updated recently, as much as you can.

Do not take shortcuts

At this point, it is important to note that one must not fall into the temptation of "black hat" SEO (Search Engine Optimization) shortcuts. Unethical practices are designed to increase traffic, and should be avoided. For example, they can take the form of "link farms", where you can buy links as a quick way to generate traffic, or "keyword stuffing" which only can package your content with keywords and phrases in place to really make it relevant and of good quality. Do not bother. It is tempting, and probably even succeed for a while, but the search engines eventually will catch up to you and may even blacklist your site - which means that no longer appear in the results of search is not something you want I'll write more about this and other topics of SEO .. future article.

Where does the money go?

I thought you never ask. There are different ways to generate income if you do not have your own product to sell. Three of them are affiliate marketing, email marketing and Google AdSense

Affiliate marketing basically means promoting someone else's product in exchange for a commission. This is driving traffic to the site of the product. Always choose a product you like and know a lot about. If your passion is skiing race, so running shoes would be a good place to start. Choose a product that you do not know much about it involve a lot of research, it is best to stick with what you know. There are different types of affiliate marketing such as article marketing, forum marketing and PPC (pay per click) advertising. The last of these involves a greater financial investment, but a major short-term reward. While it is tempting to get involved in all three, I would not suggest this because it would end up being too complicated. It is best to choose one and become a master at it and you will soon see the results.

Email marketing is big business: American companies alone were estimated to have spent $ 400 million e-mail marketing in 2006 [1]. It's not just shoot out tons of e-mail to every address it can find. It's spam, that everyone hates, and that is against the law in many countries. E-mail marketing by sending targeted marketing messages, "the list", ie people who have decided to register or to "opt in" to whatever you are offering. To do this, of course, you have something to offer them and create a list of email addresses. This should be free, and can be free to report, or even e-course. You should offer something useful and valuable, so that people choose in the list.

Google AdSense is a tool people use to enable text ads, pictures and videos on their pages. AdSense, scratch your back and you scratch it, Google (in the first quarter of 2010, Google earned $ 2.04 billion from the U.S. [2]). You may make a great welcome when done correctly, which means using the ads relevant content (if the site is tennis, then tennis-related ads should appear), that look good, and integrate seamlessly with your website. It 'also very time-efficient: when you add the code to your site and ads are displayed, you can start making money from them, without further action. They just need to be relevant and useful.
