Have You Been Asking The Question: How Do I Make Money Online? Here is The Answer

Hi guys, it’s been a while, anyway welcome to 2017, which I strongly believe will be a promising year for all online entrepreneurs who put in their best effort. Today, I will be answering that frequently asked question everyone ask when they first hear about making money on the internet: how do I make money online?

In as much as this question seem too common and easy to answer, I want to tell you that not being able to find the right answer to the question of “how do I make money online” is the sole reason many online entrepreneurs end up not making money online even after buying several eBooks and paying for so many online courses. But after this post, you will be able to answer that question yourself, and should be able to know what and what exactly to do to start making money online legitimately.

The truth is, in as much as we have millions of people trying to make money online through various means, there is still enough money to be made on the internet by everyone who desires to earn a living online, but then, that same question pops up: what can you do to start earning income online?

Since I started the journey of trying to earn a living by working online, I have noticed that virtually every 'Make Money Online' course, ebook, website, blog, etc, give the same explanation of the goal of internet marketing, which they usually package as “how to make money online on autopilot”, and it follows the same system:

  • -          Find a product or offer you would like to promote.
  • -          Create articles that promote the product or offer.
  • -          Drive traffic to those articles.

Looking at the above layout of how to make money online, it really looks simple doesn't it? You can even do it with or without your own website. Just 3 steps, and you will start to make money online!

The better ebooks, courses and seminars add two extra steps to take advantage of an old marketing adage called the 'Rule of 7'. Anyway, let me spare you the long gist and go straight to the answer to "How to make money online?" If you really want to make money online and not waste your time, energy and resources, then follow the formula below:

  • -          Find a product to sell.
  • -          Set up a website that targets people who want to buy that product you want to sell.
  • -          Entice visitors to submit their email address for your newsletter.
  • -          Use an email autoresponder to send series of newsletters promoting the paid product you are selling.
  • -          Set up a traffic campaign to get people who want to buy that product to visit your website.

The above 5 basic steps give you a very simple but powerful formula to make money online. If you follow the above formula, there is no way you won’t make enough money online.

Looking at it ordinarily, it seems simple to achieve. That's the number one reason why online marketing and make money online appeals so much to the 'Get Rich Quick' seeker. The problem is that 'simple' does not necessarily mean 'easy'. Where it gets more complicated is in making sure each of those steps are done effectively, which we will be explaining in a series of tutorials that will come in separate posts, so do yourself a favor by being a regular visitor of this site to follow up on the breakdown details.

This is where the 'Get Rich Quick' seekers jump off the bandwagon and start yelling SCAM. As I said earlier, 'simple' isn't the same thing as 'easy'. While the 'Get Rich Quick' books do overhype how easy it is to get results, it's still a fact that this is a proven system.

If you really want to learn how to make money online, you need to ignore the hype that makes it look so easy and diligently follow the formula I gave out above, making sure each step outlined in the almighty formula is properly executed in order to achieve the desired result.

Let me warn you: nobody, I mean no expert can guarantee that you can make XX amount of money in XX amount of time or period. There are too many factors that have to be taken into consideration. Everything from how good you are at niche research, SEO, all the way through how good you are at understanding the material and following instructions.

The most important things you have to ask yourself are "What are your actual expectations?", and "How well do you understand what your actually doing for each step?".

Your expectations will determine how long you'll follow through with the plan. If you expect to make $10,000 in 2 weeks, and after 3 weeks you still haven't made a sale then you'll probably give up and call making money online a scam, (That's usually caused by salespages and info marketers making unrealistic promises). Even more importantly is how well you understand what needs to be done for each step. Even if it is possible to make $10,000 in two weeks, you can’t make that amount of money online unless you do everything exactly right.

If you have made up your mind to make legitimate money online, then don’t set unrealistic targets and don’t have high expectation at the start. Instead of setting a target to make $10,000 in two weeks, make it your goal to learn exactly how to do each step necessary for a successful marketing campaign.

So, if you've been searching google, forums, blogs, ebooks, etc. for the answer to "How to make money online?", or even worse looking for "How to Get Rich Quick?", then you're asking the wrong questions. You've probably already found that answer over and over again, but keep ignoring it because that 3 steps or 5-step formula I outlined earlier isn't complete enough for you to understand how to make it work.

Instead of searching for answer to “how to make money online’, I will rather suggest that start searching for answers to the steps I outlined in the formula above, which includes:

  • -          "How to find a good product to sell?"
  • -          "How to find the best niche to market in?"
  • -          "How to set up a website that effectively promotes a product?" or “how to set up a niche blog”
  • -          "How to write articles that will lead a prospect to buy?" or “how to write niche target article”
  • -          "How to entice website visitors to submit their emails?"
  • -          "How to get visitors to my website that are looking to buy?"
  • -          “How to promote my website to attract the right visitors”

If you search online you'll find answers to the above questions for free.

NOTE: "How do I make money online?" is the wrong question to ask. You just have to learn to ask the right questions in order to get the right answers. Finding answers to all those more specific questions I listed above are how you'll learn to make money online.

Remember, failing at something is the best way to learn, and the best way to fail, is to take action!
