3 Online Business Ideas That Can Begin Making Money Today

2013-10-01 15:11

We have all seen different people talk about how they have made money online. And while many people are earning an income online, many other people are still wondering how they can do that themselves. There are many ways to make money online, and in this article we will share three of the most common and simple ways to make money online that nearly everyone can try on their own without needing technical skills.

To make money online you need a web presence

Many people think that to create a website you need some great technical skills, but that is not correct. A basic Wordpress site can be set up in less than a day, and the site can be operational within that day or the next. I have put together a step-by-step tutorial for how to set up a Wordpress site for my business app users, showing how to put together a website. So please read through how to set up your site and give it a try.

Once you have a website, you are ready to make money

The simplest way to make money is by placing ads on your pages. And the simplest way to get ads is with AdSense. AdSense is the Google ads. Anyone with a website can apply for an AdSense account and be quickly approved. You will get codes to place on your site which will display the ads. And when someone clicks on an ad on your site, you will make money. The more people you will be able to get to your site, the more ad clicks you will get, and the more money you will make. Here is the AdSense sign-up page.

Next, begin to sell things on your site

In order to sell online, you do not need to have inventory of products, or a physical store, or accept credit card payments online. You can simply resell products made by other companies and get commission from sending your users to your partner sites. When a user whom you referred makes a purchase on your partner site, you collect the commission. This is called “affiliate sales” and it is one of the most popular ways to make money online. To become an affiliate reseller, all a person has to do is create an account on a site that has affiliate products. Examples of such sites are Amazon.com, cj.com (commission junction), clickbank.com, or a number of other similar sites. Those sites have hundreds of different products that you can sell and get commission. The beauty of this model is that you do not need to create your own products, or manage any physical inventory.

Lastly, begin to sell your own products

If you are able to produce physical products, you now have a site from which you can sell them. But even if you are not able to create physical products (most people can’t), you can still create online products. Online products can be content you write (a popular form of content is eBooks), or various online courses, or other knowledge-based written products.
