Make Money Online For Beginners

I have said several times on this blog already that the best way to make money online for beginners is through Ads Marketing and Affiliate Marketing.

Ads Marketing – You allocate a certain portion of your website to display advertisements from other people/companies and you get paid in return.

Affiliate Marketing – You promote other people’s products and services and in return you get commissions. The commissions you get can be in the form of pay-per-sale or pay-per-lead.

The other method of making money online, which is through creating and marketing your own products and services (which I call Product Creation), is not suitable for beginners who are just getting started to learn the ropes of making money online. I don’t recommend beginners go this route.

Why?

Because creating your own products is no easy task for beginners, while at the same it’s not as difficult as it seems if you have some kind of previous Internet Marketing experience.

If a beginner were to jump straight in creating his own product without any kind of Internet Marketing knowledge, there is a high chance that he will fail to make even a single red cent.

Heck, even if he tries his hands at Ads or Affiliate Marketing there is already a high chance that he will NOT make it. Let alone creating his own product!

I’m not saying this to discourage any beginner who’s reading this. I just want to paint a more accurate picture in their minds that making money online is very, very hard.

The good news is that once you’ve managed to earn your first elusive $1, the next $10 becomes easier. My FREE report shows you how to earn your first $100 online. If you haven’t had a chance to grab it yet, I recommend that you do so now. :mrgreen:

Once you’ve made your first $100, your confidence will grow. You will start believing in yourself – that you possess the ability to earn money online. You will then put in more effort and time because what you did has already proven to bring in results.

As you continue to earn more and more money, your confidence grows even bigger, which will result in you taking yet more action to produce greater results. This is like a cycle of continuous improvement.

The converse, however, is also true.

If you’ve been going around in circles trying to make money online but have never made a single dime, you confidence will get smaller and smaller as time passes by. You start to wonder if everything you’re doing is worth it. You start to question your ability to really and truthfully make money from the Internet.

A few months passed and you still see no results at all. Your confidence shrinks even further and you take even less action.

Eventually you give up and you conclude that making money online is impossible and is only a scam. :mad:

Is this story familiar?

It certainly is for me because I’ve spent a total of 11 months before I earn my first money online. June 2006 I first got started in Internet Marketing. May 2007 I received my first paycheck.

Can you imagine the thrill and excitement I felt at that time? I was close to tears LOL! If you’ve already received your first paycheck, I’m sure you can relate to my feelings. That was a moment I can never forget for the rest of my life!

Now, coming back to the topic at hand….

If you’re a beginner reading this, my advice is to start with Ads and Affiliate Marketing first. Beginners Blog Profits shows you how to set up your own WordPress blog step-by-step (I do really mean step-by-step) and generate income through Ads and Affiliate Marketing from your blog.

After you’ve made some money this way, you can then start creating your own products as this is where you can make the most money. Instant Product System shows you how to instantly create your own sizzling, high quality information product in 1 day or less.

To make money online for beginners and intermediate marketers alike, the key is to always take CONSISTENT action every single day. :razz:

Are Those High Paying Adsense Keywords For Real?

Once in a while I would go to Google and do a search on “high paying adsense keywords”.

I generally don’t believe in sites that claim certain keywords pay up to $30 or $50 per click, but just for the fun of it, I would occasionally go to Google and look for these types of keywords.

Just for fun you see :)

For example, since this is now July 2008, I would type in “high paying adsense keywords july 2008″ in Google and click “search”.

The latest result that I can find is a post written on this blog on March 9, 2008 (I’m just too lazy to be going through page 7 and above of Google’s search results).

According to this blog, the top 5 high paying Adsense keywords are:

========================

austin dwi $66.89
austin dwi attorney $58.30
san diego dui attorney $54.56
houston criminal attorney $47.44
san diego dui $42.83

========================

What do you think?

Do you believe that you can get paid up to $66/click for the keywords “Austin dwi” or $42 for the keywords “Austin dwi attorney”?

Like I have stated above, I generally don’t believe in these hyped-up numbers. But that’s just my opinion though:P

Why not use the Google Keywords Tool to see how accurate these numbers are?

Below I’ve made a table that summarizes the numbers:

Keywords Blog Google Keyword Tool Difference
austin dwi $66.89 $9.84 $57.05
austin dwi attorney $58.30 $10.27 $48.03
san diego dui attorney $54.56 $12.26 $42.30
houston criminal attorney $47.44 $9.18 $38.26
san diego dui $42.83 $12.61 $30.22

Well, as can be seen from the above screenshots, there is clearly a huge difference between the numbers given by the Google Keyword Tool and those that are written on the blog I found.

And let’s not forget that the numbers given by the Google Keyword Tool are actually numbers that you would have to pay if you want to bid on those keywords on Google Adwords.

What this means is that the numbers for Adsense payouts will be smaller than those given by the Google Keyword Tool.

And to add to that, don’t forget that you also have to split your Adsense earnings with Google. This makes your earnings even smaller!

So my take on these “high paying Adsense keywords” is that don’t take their numbers too seriously. I really don’t believe anyone can get paid $66 for a single click!

However, in my opinion, the blog is partially correct in saying that the keywords listed are “high paying keywords”.

Well I’d certainly put $9/click in the high paying category. :mrgreen:

What about you?

The highest pay per click that Adsense has awarded me was $3 though, although it’s not about austin dwi or san diego dui or anything similar to that. :cool:

Money Blogging or Personal Blogging?

If you take a look around the web today, you will find that there are a large number of blogs out there.

The reason why blogs have become so popular is because it is so easy to build and maintain that almost anyone can do it. Yes, even those people without technical background knowledge.

Now these blogs cover a wide variety of different subjects; ranging from blogs about teens who want to network with their friends, blogs about the hottest and latest music, blogs about cars, blogs about politics, entertainment, food, fashion, finance, etc.

The list goes on and on.

Whatever the topic of the blog, it can be categorized into two types of blog: Personal Blogging or Money Blogging.

Personal Blogging means that you are blogging simply for the fun of it. You blog because you want to share your feelings and opinions, because you want to network with your friends and peers. You don’t expect anything in return other than the good feeling it brings. :smile:

Money Blogging, on the hand, is blogging for the sake of making money from your blog. Yeah, you may enjoy what you blog about and you may feel good about it, but the real reason behind why you blog is because of the money it can bring. :lol:

Now let us take a look at the nature of these 2 different blogs.

Folks who are involved in Personal Blogging typically use free blog platforms like Blogger.com or WordPress.com. Using these blog platforms virtually doesn’t cost any money as you only need to pay for your ISP (Internet Service Provider) fee and electricity fee for your PC.

People who indulge in Money Blogging usually use blog platforms like WordPress.org This is different from WordPress.com in that it (WordPress.org) requires your own domain and hosting.

There are, however, in some few cases where people are also using free blog platforms for Money Blogging.

So which one are you? Personal or Money Blogging?

Or maybe you haven’t got a blog yet?

There are still people out there who don’t have a clue that blogging can bring in money, real good money.

If only they knew, I bet a lot of them would switch to Money Blogging, don’t you think?

For instance, when I told a friend of mine that one can earn money by blogging, his reactions was: “Yeah right, how exactly will blogging earn me money? Blogging is just for personal stuff you want to share with your friends and family. You enjoy doing for the fun of it. Nothing more.”

See? :cool:

My response to him was: “I’m serious, you can really make money from blogging. You just need to blog consistently and bring in visitors to your blog on a consistent basis, and when your blog gets crowded, you can sell advertising space on your blog.”

This is called monetizing your blog. :mrgreen:

So if you currently own a blog but have not monetized it yet, why not switch from Personal Blogging to Money Blogging?

You would blog the same way you have always did, the only difference lies in the fact that you are going to sell some space on your blog for advertising purposes.

One of the easiest ways to monetize your blog is through Google Adsense. Every time someone clicks on one of these ads, you are paid.

As simple and straightforward as that! :wink:

There are other ways to make money from your blog other than through selling advertising space. I will cover these in later posts.

For now, just keep in mind that you can always switch from Personal Blogging to Money Blogging anytime. Since you have already made the effort and time to write to your blog, why not make some money in the process?

You don’t have to do any additional significant work. You just slap some Google Adsense ads and you are good to go.

And if you don’t have a blog yet, why not?

Go out there NOW (not tomorrow or next week), and start blogging on the topic of your interest!

Creating and maintaining a blog is really simple. All you need to do is just write your content and then click “publish”, and your blog is live and ready to be seen and recognized by the world.

Creating your blog is definitely easier than creating a site using Dreamweaver or Frontpage!

So which one are you? Personal Blogging or Money Blogging?

The Most Straightforward Way To Make Money Online

Newbie trying their hands to make money online are often confused how they can actually “make money online”.

They often ask themselves questions such as: “Where exactly is the online money at and how can I take advantage of this opportunity and make some money myself?”

If you are one of these beginners, I would recommend to you that the most straightforward and simplest way to make money online is through ads marketing or ads monetization.

What exactly is Ads marketing or Ads monetization?

Ads marketing or Ads monetization simply means that you earn money by selling advertising space to advertisers.

As simple and straightforward as that! :cool:

Traditional newspapers and magazines, which have been around for ages, make money by selling advertising space.

In the online world of Internet Marketing, it is practically the same. You can make money by selling advertising space on your website.

To successfully sell advertising space, you need to:

1. Set up a website of your own

Currently, the easiest way to set up you own website is by using a blog. I recommend using a WordPress blog if you have a little money to spare to buy domain and hosting. However, if you have no money, you can also set up a Free Blogger blog.

To find out more about setting up your WordPress or Blogger blog, you can grab my FREE report “Your First $100 Online” just by subscribing to this blog on the top right of this page.

2. Put in valuable content to your blog on a consistent basis

Now that you have your blog set up, the next thing you need to do is to put in valuable content to your blog.

Now pay special attention when I say “valuable content”. You must give valuable content that is beneficial to your blog readers, not just some rubbish and low quality content that you simply copy from another blog and paste it into your own blog.

By entertaining your blog readers on a consistent basis with valuable content that is useful to them, you make them happy they are more likely to return to your blog in the future.

These readers are also likely to recommend their friends to your blog if they feel they have benefited by reading the content on your blog.

The more people who know your blog, the higher your blog’s traffic, which lead us to point number 3…

3. Drive traffic on a consistent basis

Creating great content on your blog is terrific, but you need to do some promotion so that people know your blog exists in the first place.

There are a number of ways to drive traffic to your blog:

- write articles and submit them to article directories like Ezine Articles and Go Articles

- if you have some budget, you can use PPC (pay-per-click) advertising like Google Adwords

- social bookmark your blog’s content on sites such as Del.icio.us, StumbleUpon, and Digg

- participate in 1 or 2 forum discussions related to your niche

- trackback to other high profile bloggers’ posts from your posts

- comment on other blogs in the same niche

4. Finally, make money by selling advertising space on your blog

When your blog is visited by a lot of people (hundreds or thousands) daily, you are ready to sell advertising space on your blog to make some money.

You can do this by selling advertising space directly without the help of third party vendors by putting up your own “Advertise here” page on your blog.

Some people, however, don’t want the hassle of handling the administration work of receiving payments, setting up and activating/de-activating ads, etc.

If this is you, then you can always enlist their help of third parties such as Google Adsense or Adbrite. They take care of all the administration processes, so all you need to do is just collect money if there are advertisers who want to advertise on your blog. :lol:
