Make Money Online

By John S. Rhodes

There are several easy ways to make money online. While most businesses require a significant amount of upfront work and capital, an online business requires only moderate amounts of work and a very small investment – typically $30 or less.
Getting Organized and Motivated To Make Money Online
Before getting starting trying to make money online, follow these simple steps to get motivated and organized to work on your new business:
First, clear a work area for yourself in your home. Make sure it is far away from any distractions. The best place is a spare bedroom, preferably with a door that you can close to avoid distractions.
Second, figure out why you want to make money online. Write down a list of reasons. What do you wish to achieve? What would you do if you happened to get rich overnight? You can’t be irresponsible with your money, or your business, or it will never flourish. Setup a simple plan to deal with your finances so you don’t blow it all when the gold starts flowing in.
Third, take 15 minutes every night to plan what you need to do in the next day. This will make you far more productive. List things in order from top priority to lowest priority. I recommend getting a dry erase board and have it placed in your office area so you can easily erase things off of your list as you complete this. This will help give you a sense of accomplishment.
Fourth, sketch out a solid plan for your online business. While it costs less and requires far less time to launch an internet business, you should still be planning out every step of the way. It will allow you to organize a daily “attack plan” to advance your business goals and make money online.
Fifth, stick to your plan. You can’t flock from one thing to another in search for the “next great way” to make money online. Stick to the fundamentals – the stuff that has worked for years, and won’t stop working. Find a market need, and fill the need. Once you have a plan, stick with it! You’ll be surprised how far a little focus goes.
Make Money Online With The Simple Formula
Now that you’re organized and prepared to make money online, it’s time to teach you something BIG. All online business and ways to make money online follow one simple formula:
Product + Traffic + Sales Page = $$$
Write that formula down. Let it sink into your head. It’s simple, but powerful!
No matter what you’re doing online, you’re following this formula. If you have a website that has tons of content and you’re making money through Google AdSense, you’re providing traffic to someone else’s product (or service) and sales page. You’re providing them with leads in exchange for a cut of their (and Google’s) profits. Of course, this is just one example. We could others, but we’re not here to waste your time.
So, what’s the key that REALLY allows you to make money online?
Simple: Take complete control of the formula yourself!
Get the traffic and direct it to your OWN product and your OWN sales page to really pull in the cash. YOU need to own the entire process yourself! Don’t rely on affiliate marketing or AdSense for your well-being. You could be squashed like a bug at anytime – after all, they’re the ones making all the money.
Unfortunately, it’s difficult to research and develop your own product. It takes months of hard work or a hefty investment. Many people put in the investment and don’t make money online. There is a great alternative though, but we can’t reveal it quite yet. You have the pass the “test” first…
The Simple Test That Determines If You’re Ready To Make Money Online
If you can’t honestly answer “yes” to the following questions, you need to sit down and think twice about starting an online business:
* Are you willing to take risks?
* Will you be able to commit at least 30 minutes a day to your online business?
* Are you able to stay focused and determined?
* Are you committed to long-term results?
* Do you have a clear goal of how much you want to earn?
These questions should get you thinking about what it really takes to “make it” online. Even if you’re just looking to supplement the income from your job, it takes time and effort to do so.
Looking For A Solid Business Plan To Make Money Online
Now that you understand what you need to make money online, it’s time to talk more about that organized plan we briefly mentioned earlier. You should look for a solid business plan with these characteristics:
*Simple and easy to implement.
* High, long-term income potential.
* Repeatable: the more “work” you put in, the more results you get
* Allows you to “own” the entire formula: Product + Traffic + Sales Page
* Doesn’t rely on others for your income (e.g., NOT affiliate marketing)
Unfortunately, most online courses don’t meet these criteria. They encourage you take the easy path which produces only short-term results. Don’t take their word for it – others are getting rich off of your hard work. You’re getting only a tiny fraction of the pie, since a long-term customer can be worth hundreds, if not thousands. Would you be willing to trade a $10 or $20 commission for hundreds of dollars in the long run? You bet!
