Do you want to make money online but just do not know how to get started? If you want to get your internet marketing career off the ground but have no product, here is a very easy 3 step process that will help you do that.
Step 1 – Products
Every marketer needs a product to sell, but as we said above you do not have one. That is not a problem. Since you do not have a product of your own I will show you how to get your hands on hundreds of products that you can use to create positive cash flow.
The first thing that you need to do is visit Clickbank (clickbank.com) and sign up as an affiliate (it is free). Once you are signed up you can look at the top of the page and click on the link that says “Marketplace,” Here you will find an easy to use search function to help you find products to market.
When deciding on a product in the marketplace look under the listing and you will see a list of numbers. There are 2 things that you are looking for.
This tells what percentage of the sale you are going to earn as an affiliate. You should never sell a product that is paying you less than 50%. Ideally you will want to promote products that pay 65% – 75% in commission.
This value tells you the percentage of sales that come from affiliates. The higher this number is the better.
Step 2 – Advertising
You now have a product that you want to market and now we need to get into advertising. If you want to make money online then you need to get this business going quickly. To do that you are going to have to spend a little cash up front.
What you are going to do is promote your product with Pay per Click advertising (PPC).
Go to Google AdWords (google.adwords.com) and set up an account. Build a list of keywords that you want to use with your campaign. Keywords are search terms that you think potential customers will use when searching for information in the niche that your product serves.
Once you have your list of keywords you will bid on them. Basically you will be telling AdWords how much you are willing to pay each time your ad is clicked. The key here is to use very targeted keywords. If your keywords are too general then you will get too many responses. Use laser targeted keywords not general terms.
Once your keywords are in place you need to construct your ad. Keep your ads short and powerful. Your ads need to inspire viewers to click it. One word of caution…never use the word “free” in your ad. You will attract every freebie seeker in the world.
Step 3 – Blogging
Start a blog for free at Blogger (blogger.com). Use your blog to review the products that you are going to promote and always use your affiliate link in your posts. Give your viewers some quality content and they will come back.
You can further monetize your blog using Google AdSense but that is another article for another time. If you use this simple 3 step process you will make money online in no time.
