A Beginner's Guide To Making Money Online

Okay, you’re reading this because you want to make money online. You are fairly new to this,so you want some assistance. Well, you’re reading the right article. I will attempt to show you the basics on how to start an online money-making venture as quickly as possible.

The internet, through its sheer size, can be a bit overwhelming for a newcomer especially if there’s so many different types of lucrative opportunities out there. Follow these simple steps to get started.

STEP 1: Understand how money is made on the internet In its simplest form, money can be made on the internet in roughly three ways:

By setting up your own web site

A web site can be an ideal way to make money online. However, it should be pointed out that you have to be prepared to put in a lot of hard work and have a great deal of patience. Your web site can make money by you offering a product or service on it or by earning advertising revenue or both. You can sell just about anything on a web site but it is recommended that you start with items that are instantly downloadable like software or ebooks. This spares you the agony and extra work of having to specially ship physical items around the world.

You will start by choosing a domain name, registering it and hosting your site. You need to design a site to suit your needs and what you have to sell. You can use the services of a web designer to do this for you or if you are the creative sort with reasonable computer knowledge and some good common sense, you could do this yourself –it’s not that difficult!

You will also need the ability to accept credit card payments from your customers. This has become reasonably easy to do these days by simply making use of a third party processor. Search for these on the search engines. You then need to market your web site either by way of paid ads or by using good Seo (search engine optimization) techniques to get your site ranked well in the search engines.

An alternate method of making money with a web site is by offering free, useful and quality content that appeals to users. Once you have built up a decent amount of regular visitors, you host Google Adsense ads. Google will pay you a commission on all their ads that are clicked on your site. You can also offer paid advertising to other web sites on your own by way of text or banner ads.

By doing some sort of online work for a company

There are numerous genuine companies out there that offer part time work to ordinary individuals. You can find research work, taking of surveys, data capturing, typing, etc. You can source these companies by searching for them on the search engines.

By participating in affiliate programs

Affiliate programs are popular with work-at-homers. An affiliate program is simply an advertising/marketing program run by a company/web site in which they get members to refer visitors to their site. Members are paid per visitor or per sign-up or a combination of both. Most affiliate programs are free to join and the company will provide you with marketing/advertising aids in the form of text ads, sales copy, banners, etc to use. It is quite alright for you to participate in more that one affiliate program at the same time – this greatly increases your chance of success. Incidentally, affiliate activities create a great deal of internet traffic. To further increase your chance of success with affiliate programs, only join established companies that offer well respected and popular products or services.

STEP 2: Decide what you feel comfortable with

Now that you have a brief idea on the most popular money-making methods, you need to decide which one appeals to you. Once you have, feel free to do more research in that area and try to get as much information as possible. Play around with a few ideas until you are sure what you want to do.

STEP 3: Finding the right opportunity

Once you’ve decided on what you’d like to do, you now need to find the right opportunity. If you’ve decided to start your own web site, you need to determine what it’s going to be about. It’s best to base it upon something you have a fair knowledge of or are passionate about.If you’ve decided to take the affiliate route or to do online work for a company, make sure you are dealing with a reputable company that pays promptly. Use the search engines to find possible companies, then email these companies with any questions you have. Ask for references (people who are doing work for this company) and contact these people about their experiences.

Following these simple steps should put you on the right track very quickly. All the best!

How To Make Money With Downloadables

Downloadables (in the context of this report) an ebooks and software/scripts that can be easily downloaded onto a user's computer at the click of a mouse. This report will explain how anyone, with a simple web site, can profit from these highly sought after products.

Information is a commodity that is constantly in great demand - it seems humans can't get enough of it. The fact that you are reading this article means that you require some sort of information. Ebooks that are in demand tell a reader how to do something, software/scripts enable a user to accomplish a task on a computer or on the internet. Now, take advantage of this fact and operate a small web site business satisfying these demands.

Why downloadables? Downloadables have some great advantages over other product lines. Firstly, a customer can order and get his product immediately after payment - this is great as most people are impulsive buyers and buy on the spot. Secondly, downloadables do not require any shipping and hence no shipping costs and all the hard work that goes with that. Thirdly, no need to store products - only one copy of a downloadable need to be on your web server.

Confirm your downloadables

Your downloadables are your products that you will market via your web site. These can either be ebooks or software/scripts or a combination of both.

Sourcing of ebooks

If you have a flair for writing, are knowledgeable on a certain topic, then you can write your own ebook. Write using a word processor and then covert into pdf format or self-executing format, the latter made possible by the great many, often free, ebook publishing software available on the web - source them by searching on the search engines. It seems that "How to" ebooks are the most popular and the desirable length is around sixty to a hundred pages.

If you prefer not writing your own ebooks, then you may purchase reprint rights to ebooks that are written by someone else. Essentially this means that the copyright belongs to the original author but he/she grants you the rights to sell the ebooks. Some authors charge a once-off fee while others charge a royalty commission on every copy of ebook you sell. You can find these by searching on the web.

Sourcing of software/scripts

For these, you will follow the very same procedure as above. For the sake of clarity, I should explain a slight distinction between software and scripts. The term software is used to describe whole programs that run on your computer like a spreadsheet program while scripts are little programs that, being more internet based, are usually add-ons. An example is a script that adds a forum to your web site.

Establish a web site

If you don't have one already, your next step would be to establish a web site. This has become a relatively easy, cheap and painless exercise. Think of a domain name, register it and get hosting. There are a number of hosting options available and your choice will usually depend on your needs. If you are uncertain on what you will need, speak to a reliable webmaster who has been in the industry for some time.

Secure payment processing

You will now need to establish secure credit card processing. This will allow your customers to pay with their credit cards and receive their product as a download immediately thereafter. The easiest way is to make use of the services of a third party processor who would also be willing to assist you with the setup and integration. The third party processor will debit your customers' credit cards and remit the money to you after deducting their commission.

Setup and design your web site

You now need to design your web site taking into account your products and the technology your third party processor is using. It is advisable to make use of a developer/designer who is able to integrate third party processing.

Market your site

Now market your web site either by way of text ads, banners, link exchanges and other traffic generation methods. You may also want to use good Seo (search engine optimization) methods to get your site ranked high enough in the search engines.

How it comes together

A visitor browsing your site takes a keen interest in one or more of your ebooks/software/scripts. He decides to buy and is taken to the order page of your third party processor (by way of an order link on your site). He enters his credit card details and other information and confirms his order. After his order is processed successfully, he is either taken to a secure members-only page on your web site where he is shown the download link or your payment processor emails him a download link. Either way, by clicking on the link, he is able to download his ebook/software/script immediately.

How To Start Up And Operate Your Own Home Typing Service

A home typing service is an ideal venture to get into on a part-time basis. While it won’t make you a millionaire, you can expect a few hundred dollars per month. I’m sure you could use that. However, if you are fast and good at it, you will find plenty of business coming your way from referrals and recommendations and your monthly income could very well skyrocket, making it a great home business idea.

There are thousands of typing possibilities and even more people looking for the services of a typing agency. Typing requests will come from business people, doctors, lawyers, authors, students and even job seekers. Some possible typing jobs may include resumes, sales letters, flyers, lawyers letters, student assignments, announcements, manuscripts, newsletters, etc.

What’s Required

It depends on state to state, town to town, country to country. As this write-up will probably be read by people from all over the world, I would not be able to advise here except to say that you should consult your nearest trade office for direction.

Getting Started

Once your home office is ready, it is time to spread the word around about your new typing service. You should start with having business cards made and pass around to places like doctors’ rooms, libraries, hospitals, etc. A great idea is to make up small posters and pin them up on bulletin boards in shopping centers, community centers, message boards on campuses and colleges nearby. Any high foot traffic area is also recommended.

You may consider placing a few classified ads in your local papers. One such ad may look like this:

Al’s Typing Service. All kinds of typing done professionally at reasonable rates. Quick and reliable. Tel: xxxxxxxxx You may also consider advertising in the Yellow Pages. This is an advertising opportunity that works very well in this type of field.


Your rates will normally be based on a per hour basis. The best way to determine your starting rates is to have a look at what your competition is charging. Phone them, quiz them on their rates for various items. Set your price a little lower than theirs. As you gain experience and people start recommending you for your excellent work and reliability, you can gradually start increasing your rates.

Customer Service

As with any other business, customer service is of paramount importance, sometimes the deciding factor on success or failure. Make sure, if possible, that there is a ‘live’ person taking enquiries from your clients and enquirers to your ads. If this person is not going to be you, make sure that the person you appoint possess sufficient knowledgeable to field the calls. You can easily ensure this is possible by providing him/her with the correct training. If you must use a telephone answering service, do so only as a last resort. Research has shown that if an enquirer is calling after reading your offer from a medium where there are similar offerings to your own like in classified listings, they will simply move on to the next ad if they get an answering machine when they call you. This is because most people are impulsive by nature – if they want to use a typing service then they want all the information like rates, time frame, etc. now!

Good Work Etiquette

When you receive a typing job request, make sure you quote correctly. You also need to decide whether you can handle that type of request due to time constraints or if you have the sufficient typing skills to do a job that is quite intricate.

Give realistic completion estimates to your clients and it is a good idea to allow an extra day in case something goes wrong. Always honor the completion time with your clients but do not be forced into promising an earlier finishing time when you know that it’s going to be impossible.

Make separate folders for each of your clients and name it accordingly. You may want to back up your data daily on either a cd rom or any other external storage device for safety reasons. The last thing you need is to lose all your hard work in the event of a serious system crash.

This is really a good, workable business idea, especially for the house-bound although it can work for just about anybody. Take it easy, start small and expand slowly. All the best!

The Only Envelope Stuffing Program That Works

A Co-op mailing service is an ideal little home-based business that can be started immediately by just about anybody. Although a little business, it can snowball into a highly successful venture that could provide for you and your family for the rest of your life. If you do it correctly and stick to it, you can earn virtually tens of thousands of dollars monthly whilst providing a much-needed service to businesses.

Other advantages of providing this service is that you need not outlay any cash of your own, you buy no equipment, you do not need to do any door to door sales, you can work part-time when it suits you and you can involve your entire family to help you out. There’s no experience required - all you need do is read this report and away you go! Simply follow our instructions as listed here and there’s no reason to fail. Do this business for as long as you wish - for the rest of your life if you’d like. A Co-op Mailing Service will always be in demand by other businesses in their quest for success.

How It All Works

Mail order businesses are always mailing out circulars to prospects. In order for them to do this on an ongoing basis, they have to do the following:

1. Advertise for enquiries to generate a mailing list to send their marketing brochures to, and/or

2. Rent mailing lists from a mailing list broker and send their marketing circulars to people on this list.

3. Purchase envelopes and stamps or postage paid envelopes.
4. Have their circulars printed.

5. Fold and stuff envelopes with circulars and seal.

6. Take the completed mail to the post office for posting.

The Service You Provide

Your duties as a mailing service provider will be to mail out circulars on behalf of these businesses for which you will charge them a fee far lower than what they will pay to do these things on their own. Your clients need only pay you a small fee which is lower than their mailing lists/advertising, postage and labour costs combined.

Your clients make contact with you and indicate that they want to make use of your mailing service. They tell you how many they want mailed out and supply you the circulars that must be mailed out. Each client will be quoted on a circular that is one A4 sheet either single or double-sided printed. If a client’s circular is more than this, then you must increase your fee accordingly. You will be able to stuff 5-6 such circulars into one envelope, so you will be able to deal with 5-6 clients at the same time provided they all have single A4 circulars, printed either one or two sides. You use your own mailing list or you may rent them at a nominal cost. You buy the required number of envelopes either prepaid or just plain envelopes and standard postage stamps. The mailing list you have or have rented will be in the form of sticky labels. You simply stick these on the envelopes or you may address these envelopes out by hand if you don’t have them on labels. Either way works out just fine. You fold and stuff all circulars and seal envelopes. You may employ your own family members to do the laborious tasks of sticking labels, writing out envelopes, folding, stuffing and sealing envelopes. Once the mail is ready, you simply hand them over to your nearest post office.

How Much To Charge

In order to figure out how much to charge, you first have to ascertain your total costs per 1000 mailing. Add a 50-75% mark-up to this cost. Now divide the total by the number of clients you have for one mailing. The figure you get is the fee you will charge each client. They’ll soon realize that this fee they will pay you is far less than what they would have paid had they done this themselves – and they don’t have to do any work too! Remember, your clients pay you this fee first before you do anything. You use part of this payment to pay for stationery/postage costs and the balance is your profits. Hence, you need not outlay any of your own money.

Finding Clients

Finding clients should be a relatively easy task. The trick here is to remind your prospective clients of the huge savings they will be making on their mailing. You will also save them time and the hassle of doing the laborious task of preparing and mailing large quantities of circulars. Find clients by searching through many magazine and newspapers that carry a lot of ads from mail order companies. Make contact with these companies and offer your services to them. You may also advertise in the Yellow Pages, on the Internet, in newspapers and magazines. Good Luck!
