How To Make Money With An Online Business Ventures

The advent of today’s economy has caused many people to research the reality of making money at home.  And many of you are ending your search with online jobs that generally pay a relatively low wage or salary in exchange for the benefits you receive by working out of the comfort of your own home. When it comes to considering a better income with an actual home business, it should be a natural defense to be a little timid and cautious about the many opportunities available today.  Always ask yourself, “How much money do I need to invest?” How much technical and/or marketing knowledge do you need? How can you distinguish the scams from the legitimate methods to make money from online business opportunities?

It’s only natural to have these thoughts and reservations and you really need to get the answers.  But the freedom and financial rewards that you can have with an online business, as opposed to working an online job, definitely make it worth your while to at least consider these options.

1. The easiest way to start is by developing a business that features your passions and expertise.  Ask yourself some questions such as:

  • Are you a good writer or designer?
  • Do you have a flair for cooking?
  • Do you love gardening?
  • Do you know a lot about a specific subject?
  • Do your friends and family come to you for advice about certain things?
  • Could you turn your knowledge into a consulting business?

Do some deep thinking about what you are good at and passionate about. Once you’ve figured that out, do some research on who would want and need your product/service. You’ll then want to set up your own website or blog based on what you’re selling and target it towards who you’re selling it to. Don’t be intimidated by this step! Creating your own site is extremely easy these days and it doesn’t have to be expensive. The next step is to get traffic to your site. And this is a topic for a whole other article because there are so many ways to do this, and many of them are free.

2. If you don’t feel comfortable coming up with your own products or services to market, you can make money from online business products or services that belong to other people. One way to do this is through affiliate marketing.

There are many places you can start to look for things to market, but the most popular sites are ClickBank and Commission Junction. Anytime you make a sale on the products you promote, you are paid commissions. Network Marketing is another route to go if you don’t have your own merchandise.

There are hundreds of Network Marketing companies to choose from and they offer all kinds of products and services. With network marketing, you pay a relatively low fee (this varies from company to company) to get started and then you earn commissions on products/services that you sell as well as on the people you recruit into the company as part of your sales team. The right type of “coaching” mentality is required if you do want to get into network marketing since much of your success will depend on how well you can lead your team. One word of caution, beware of Network Marketing businesses…..my experience tells me most are scams, sure people make money but it’s only the people on the top. Study the company you’re interested in, call actual members to ask questions….be blunt, ask if they’re making any money, if they are, ask them how much! If they won’t answer, then move on to the next one.

There really and truly are ways to make money online. Most people working online businesses are good hard working people. As in any profession there are scammers….so follow your gut. If you’re not feeling  right about one method, simply move on to the next. Believe me, there are plenty of business models to follow and try out if you are really interested in makeing money online. Here are some resources that will help you, I use these and recommend them highly:

Earn1KaDay…..get exposed to many different business models for making money online. Teacher is top notch. Forum is one of the most friendly and helpful I’ve ever been part of.

Niche Profit Classroom ……you are supplied with 2 niche products a month. You’re given most of the materials along with a schedule of what to do next each month. You’ll learn niche marketing in Earn1KaDay as a business model, but with NicheProfitClassroom you’ll dive deeply in depth into one type of online niche marketing. The guys on products from Niche Profit Classroom are top notch and I would highly recommend either of these two memberships if you want to start making money online.

Make Money Surfing The Internet

It’s interesting to see how people end up online searching for ways to make money and even more interesting to see how they end up doing it. Some people are looking for virtual online jobs, some looking for anything that allows them to work from home, and some have very specific goals in mind like starting an online business or a profitable website.

No matter what people start out looking for, it’s very likely that they end up doing something at least a little bit different or a combination of many things. The lure of the internet is powerful and promising. But no matter what your end goal when it comes to making money online, there are some surefire easy ways to get you through some rough spots. In the past, you could actually make money surfing the internet.

newspaperss1However, that has changed quite a bit and it isn’t really worth it anymore. Some of the paid to surf programs such as AllAdvantage (then Agloco) have closed down. Others have reduced payouts or never pay people what they are owed at all. This is because they are not earning enough on advertising. But if you are interested in checking them out, AllCommunity and CashSurfers are a couple that are still around.

If you use search engines quite a bit, you can try Scour.com which allows you to see all the search results from the three biggies (Google. Yahoo and MSN) at the same time. The other really great thing about Scour is that if you sign up for an account with them, you can actually earn money while doing your own searches. Now, the money isn’t big and it takes a while to add up, but it is another way to make money surfing the internet.

While being able to make money surfing seems to be less and less likely, you can still make money by taking surveys which is pretty much on the same level of difficulty.

It so easy to start with this type of job. The hardest part may be finding the best legitimate ones. But then you will be your own boss, and can choose when and where to do this job. A few survey sites are WinningSurveys, IPSOS Survey, Survey Networks, RatePoint, ECNResearch, Survey4Profit, RewardsGateway and TheNetPanel but I strongly recommend you do your own research as well.

Once you have decided what survey site to register, it is important to complete the application form and the profile survey. What the research companies need from you is the correct information you will put in your profile. Your profile will be the basis of your survey. They will categorize your profile. This means that you will be receiving surveys that suit your profile, for example, your interest, needs and wants, etc. Once you are done with these steps, all you need to do is wait from your home and check your registered email regularly for new surveys.

While it’s becoming more and more difficult to make money surfing the internet, there are alternatives which are just as easy and quick to start-up.

Do Free Money Making Opportunities Really Exist

Anyone who has even done the slightest bit of research on the wonderful worldwide web has realized that free money making opportunities are advertised abundantly. And it is basically true that anyone with a computer and a high-speed internet connection can earn money. And often you can do that without spending any money at all. . . but you will need to put in some time and effort.

This article serves as a brief introduction to just a few different options – I recommend that you do your own research as well to find what fits your personality, interests, skills and time-requirements best.

People browse the web for all different reasons: to shop, to access information, to entertain themselves and to network, among others. You can make money online by getting the attention of these people, even if you don’t have your own product or service and you will eventually need to learn how to influence them.

There are three free money making opportunities that I will mention here: taking surveys, selling your knowledge/expertise (consulting) and affiliate programs. I will just briefly go over taking surveys since this doesn’t require any sales or promotion of any kind. Filling out surveys is another way to earn money without spending any. You won’t make a lot of money doing this but it is just one way to get started while you learn other internet marketing strategies that you can really profit with.

If you have no product or service of your own, affiliate marketing is definitely the way to go. Just choose a product from one of the many affiliate marketplaces like Clickbank – make it something that generally interests you – and start promoting it in any of the free online sites like Twitter, Facebook, Blogger, Squidoo, HubPages, EzineArticles, etc.

Is there something that all your friends and family can ask you advice about – a topic that you are considered to be an expert in? If so, you can start offering your advice to others for a price. Set up a free blog at Blogger.com and write a couple of articles about your service. Send anyone you know to that blog.

If the information that you provide is valuable and becomes popular, many companies will come to you and ask to advertise on your site. So that can add passive income to the profits you are already getting from your own sales.

Some people prefer to stick to just one of these to perfect it but, most internet marketers, combine all three of them for variety and greater earnings.

There are so many free money making opportunities available to you on the internet. The biggest advantage to starting an online business venture is that it doesn’t have to require any initial investment and the profits can be significant. Just pick something to start with and learn the others as you go.

Header Graphics and Review of Niche Profit Classroom

I thought I’d post a review of my progress with Niche Profit Classroom here, along with some of the details of the process including the positives and negatives. You might say this is a review of Niche Profit Classroom. Sure, in some circumstances I’ll be giving away the niche, however, the secret to any success in Niche Profit Classroom is in the webinars, pre-recorded teaching classes and their super secret method of developing the actual website.

Continued Review of Niche Profit Classroom

After poking around for a while I’ve found the Niche Profit Classroom to have a ton of content designed to help you get your websites online and start getting free organic traffic. I’ve been in the forum, trying to see if there is any personal contact with the owners…..still nothing. However, if seems like there are a lot of newbie types working their way through the process of taking the provided materials and getting a website uploaded and working.

Sometimes it’s difficult to remember how difficult it can be for a newbie to get started online. There’s so much to learn and understand. Usually when you’re new to the whole internet marketing thing you become very vulnerable to all the claims of “make money online” or “simple as 123″ maybe “get online fast”……so, when I looked in the forum I could tell there were a lot of newbie types struggling to make there way through the process of Niche Marketing.

The entire process of Niche Marketing isn’t one of those concepts or processes that can be accomplished overnight! There’s much to learn and unless you’re ready to pay someone to help you understand the entire process it simply is going to take some time of studying and applying before you become competent in developing any niche and are able to profit from it. Niche Profit Classroom has all the systems in place to help you with the process….probably the best I’ve seen to day, however, if you’re new to online marketing please don’t think you can pay for a month’s worth of the membership and start selling products. You’ll spend much of your time watching the videos and studying the materials in an attempt to understand the concept of Niche Marketing. Think of it as being similar to taking an advanced college course. Better yet, think of it as trying to get a college degree in one specific subject, area or discipline because of the amount of information you will need to become competent at.

One area that you’ll need to deal with is graphics. They have a couple of videos dealing with your website graphics and book covers. They even provide generic header graphics and book covers. You could probably even get away with using these graphics, however, you’ll really to create a unique website…..something that is different than everyone else. One way to set your website apart is by creating custom graphics. Most newbies will not be able to create custom graphics and will have to hire someone such as the folks at www.spGraphic.com

Here’s an example of a site with graphics provided by Niche Profit Classrooms

modeltrainsite1

Here’s the same site with a custom header graphic…..in my opinion changing this graphic is very important in order to differentiate your website from all the rest! Most internet surfers have viewed enough websites so that they can immediately tell whether a website some homegrown site or a professional quality type site. Graphics really do make a difference when it comes to website stickiness, how long the visitor stays and whether they make a purchase or not.

I really like what the folks at Niche Profit Classroom have put together, however, in my opinion changing the graphics is just as important as rewriting plr articles. As in any membership only a small percentage will actually take action and start uploading websites using all the material provided, however, it is imperative to change the look of your site so it doesn’t look like all the other sites.  Looking at the 2 screen shots above you can see that the 2 header graphics are vastly different and the first one, provided by NPC, looks terrible and is the poorest excuse for a header graphic that I’ve seen.

NPC provides the .psd image which means that you can edit the graphic in Photoshop or GIMP, but I’d just start from scratch and create something totally different. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say that the membership should be providing graphics of much better quality. The stuff they provide is garbage and since they claim to have many members, they surely can afford to pay for some decent graphics!

Even though their graphics suck, the membership at Niche Profit Classroom is well worth the money. Their knowledge of Niche Marketing is second to no one I’ve run across online.
