Are You Struggling To Make Money Online?

Do you wish there was an easier way to make money online? Of course we all do. But while there are dozens of ways to make money online, still 95% of those starting up internet businesses fail.

One of the easiest ways to make money online is selling digital products. Digital products could be an ebook, an MP3, video or software. Selling these products is fast, easy and commands big profit margins. No inventories to watch, delivery trucks are non-existent and most of all it works 24 hrs a day 7 days a week. Really an entrepreneur’s dream come true.

What are the exact steps involved to make money online with selling digital products? The following steps have been proven to be effective:

1. Choose the right product.

The first thing that you need to do is get a product that you can sell. Be certain that you choose the right product to sell. In choosing a product, you can either create your own or sell other people’s product. However, you must ensure that the product you will sell is in demand and that it is something that many people want or need.

You may check clickbank.com to see and get a feel of what products are in high demand. If you’ve been in the internet for three to four months and have been subscribing for those newsletters from sites you visited, then you may now have an idea of what topics attract large crowds. Subjects on golf, search engine traffic, weight loss, marketing, adsense, dog training, personal improvement and make money online have proven well overtime. There are some niche subjects which also have been drawing huge following.

Remember, the number of people looking for that particular topic, product or subject is extremely important. You can’t make money online if only a handful is interested with that product you are trying to sell. The number of competitors also plays an important role. As much as possible, choose an area with lesser competition. If you’re just starting out, it is hard to compete with guys who are the McDonalds of the industry. If you’re a bit sophisticated, there are tools available to figure this out. You can try the keyword tools and look for topics that have been searched by volumes and volumes. These tools also provide you with the number of competing websites. There is wordtracker.com, inventory.overture.com that you can start with.

If you don’t want to create your own product, you can easily find hundreds of products with master resale rights. What are master resale rights (MRR)? If you own a product with MRR, you have the right to sell it to others and keep all the profit for yourself! With master resale rights, the person who buys from you can also get the resale rights to the product.

There are also products with private label rights. Private label rights give you freedom to alter the product or change the content and put your name on it as the author or originator. You may try warriorforum.com and look at the warrior’s special offer (WSO) for great deals on resale rights.

2. Build your website.

Now don’t scratch you head yet. You will not be building a full blown website but a very simple three page site. The pages are: Sales letter Page, Thank You Page and the Download Page. Trial and completely free web building softwares are available for download. There’s the 123WYSIWYG and NVU which are both easy to use. If you’re not that tech driven then you can hire some college kids in your neighborhood who might be good at building websites. Or you can try elance.com and rentacoder.com to find somebody to do this. Just focus on your goal to make money online.

To accept payment, just use Paypal. It’s easy to get. Using the standard Paypal button is okay. Paypal will ask you for the redirect page, in this case, use your Thank You Page. Don't put the download link there. Put an opt-in in box instead. Say that you will send the download link in the email. The opt-in box is extremely important if you want to build a business. You will have the chance to capture customer information here. You can make money online over and over again once you have a large list of customers.

In the email that goes out after a person subscribes to your opt-in, you will tell them where to download the product. Your download page should contain a link to your product with a few directions on how to download and how to use it. If you are selling an ebook in PDF format, tell them that Adobe Reader is required and point them where they can download it.

3. Generate traffic.

Once you have chosen your product and created your website, you must attract visitors. You cannot make money online if your site doesn’t have visitors. You can get traffic to your website in many different ways. However, you want to be certain that you bring in the right kind of traffic. What is the right kind of traffic? Targeted! You want visitors to come to your site because they want to, not because they are forced to. You want visitors that are interested in your product.

One of the ways to attract traffic is search engine marketing (SEM). SEM is a set of marketing methods to increase the visibility of a website in search engine results pages. Yahoo and Google are the top two sites where most of the web searches come from. Experts estimate that Google account for 45% of the searches while Yahoo gets 30%. In order to make money online, your website must be listed in the top 30 results of the search engines. Do you think anyone would bother to look on page 97 of the results? or page 110?

Your site’s ranking on the search engines will depend on how optimized it is with the keywords you choose and the number of competition it has. The lesser the competition for the specific keyword, the higher the chance of your site to get to the top of the search engines and the chance to make money online is significantly increased.

Another way to get visitors to your site, and this is the quickest one, is by pay per click advertising (PPC). You can try the Google adwords program, Miva and Goclick. Be very careful, however, as PPC advertising may burn your pockets and your plan to make money online would be affected. Make sure to set your daily budget when doing PPC.

These three simple steps to make money online when followed would get you the results you want. There are dozens of ways to make money online. What separates the successful online entrepreneur from a failure is focus and consistency of efforts. Most of the people starting to make money online get sidetracked with every new program that comes to them. If you want to make money online, choose one specific way, and then follow that way until you succeed. Don’t jump from program to program.


Get paid as a Mahalo PTG

Jason Calacanis’ search engine, Mahalo, is built by humans. This means that some guy or girl was directly responsible for creating the results for a certain search query; if no one did that, Mahalo will simply display search results by Google. The question until now was, how the hell are they going to get enough people to do all these results? After all, there is a lot of search queries out there.

The Mahalo Greenhouse is where talented part-time Guides (PTGs) help Mahalo create the best search results on the internet. PTGs create search results in the Mahalo Greenhouse for terms Mahalo has yet to cover, and if their full-time Guides approve the PTGs' search results, those results will be moved from the Mahalo Greenhouse to Mahalo. Anyone can apply to be a PTG. PTGs are paid $10 to $15 for each search result approved and added to Mahalo. Please note that at they can only pay U.S. citizens. If you are not a U.S. citizen, they will make a donation to the Wikimedia Foundation in your name.

AGLOCO Viewbar is available but...

It's been two days since the agloco viewbar has been released but a new problem surface. The agloco website is having a major downtime. Sometimes the site cannot be access especially in Asia. It maybe due to the fact that many people are downloading the agloco viewbar. According to agloco official blog, the agloco ads will appear shortly. Well, the agloco viewbar is available for download and you can install it. It seems though that without the ads, members wouldn't be making any money. Advertisers pays for their ads to be shown in the agloco viewbar to showcase their products or services and they pay agloco everytime its members view the ads. Then the money earned is divided and shared to its members. Without the ads, members would have no earnings. Hopefully, agloco would fix this soon.


Get Paid For Filling Up Online Surveys

Paid online surveys have been around for years, but some people are still very skeptical about these so called money making surveys. You can find these surveys all over the internet and are listed on many different sites. These surveys are really easy to complete, but don’t expect to start making millions off of these offers, most only pay $5-$10 per survey. They are pretty easy to complete, but can be really time consuming.

The way these surveys work is that big companies need honest reviews from customers. So they release surveys in which they pay the websites a commission for every survey they have completed by a consumer. Part of the commission is then passed on to you. So it’s a legitimate money making venture.

Some sites are scams. There are two things to think about when signing up for an online survey site. The first is just to think. If the site is offering you to win a prize just for signing up, take a look around and see what you can find on the site. Also, sites that are making you fill out a lot of information after signing up, are almost certainly spam. A good way to avoid being spammed is searching for an online survey forum and talking with experienced people there. They will help you get your feet off the ground.

We have compiled a few tips to help you to get the most out of taking online surveys. First, sign up with as many online survey sites you can find. This will ensure that you receive the most survey invitations possible. Signing up with only one survey site won’t get you many invitations, but if you sign up for ten or even twenty, you could be getting fifteen or more surveys per day. Another tip is to fill out your profile after registering for the site. This may or may not be used in screening members for surveys. Also it’s always better to use the correct information. Another thing is to be honest when answering the surveys, the information collected is taken very seriously. And one final tip, check your email often. Survey invitations sometimes are limited to a certain number of people or only last for a certain period of time. So be sure to check your email once, twice, or even three times daily. One more thing to remember is to set up a separate email account just for survey invitations, and turn all of your spam filters off. This is because some survey companies may trigger your filters, and then you may never know they invited you to a survey.

One of the keys to making money with online surveys is to establish multiple streams of income. Each of these different web sites that offer online surveys might only provide a few dollars each month, but with enough different sites that you sign up with, you will find that you are able to earn a pretty good amount of money with these surveys. Paid Surveys can provide a terrific second income source that will continue to grow as you become more experienced with filling out online surveys.

Agloco Viewbar Set to be Released On Monday, Early Tuesday in Asia

Finally, according to the agloco official blog, the agloco viewbar will be released on June 2.

Sorry to be so long between posts. There was no meaningful news to give you until today.

We have made a workaround regarding the ad server problem and we will finally be launching the Viewbar. Some, but not all, of our ad networks will be connected. These networks have enough ads on them, so we are comfortable releasing the software as we continue to work on the outstanding issues that remain with the other networks. All of the preliminary Viewbar functions are there, but with the ad problems we will not be initially launching with the personalized ad targeting. We will continue to develop this capability after we have launched and when it is available the new version of the software will be incorporated into your viewbar automatically.

Remember that this is the first version of the Viewbar (v1.0), and with the Viewbar being automatically self-updating software, gradual improvement (both aesthetically and functionally) will appear seamlessly (you also have an option to turn off this feature and ask for updates manually, though we recommend leaving the auto-updating feature active so that you always have the latest software as improvements are made).

This weekend the Viewbar download is being moved from the test servers to the main servers. We will NOT need to temporarily take down the web site as we had thought, so we will not be sending out an email warning on that. If the transfer goes smoothly, the first download emails will be going out Monday morning California time (early Tuesday in Asia).

Please remember:

If you have a Norton firewall you may be asked to allow access to “viewbar.exe” and “update.exe” (please check “Permit Access Always” for proper installation of the Viewbar).

The Viewbar is currently available for Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista and will work with IE (Internet Explorer) or Firefox browsers.

I’m sure you are all just as ready for the Viewbar release as we are!
