The Internet Newbie's Internet Guide to Making Money Online

In order to make money online you need the following:

1. Something to sell

2. Someone to sell it to [hopefully, lots of this]

3. Somewhere to sell it

4. Somehow to deliver it.

If you can master these four simple steps you will make money every single time and with any product you choose to market.

Let's look at step 1.

This is simple enough, no? In order to make money online, you have to sell something. That is not rocket science. A product. A service. A combination of a product and a service. The higher the cost of the product or service you select to sell, the more money you will make. So, what can you sell? My suggestion is digital products. They are already available for your use, have a great demand for them, and are easily delivered to your customers. Select a product you want to sell, and step 1 is completed. You can review any number of products from websites such as Clickbank, Payspree, JVZoo, PayDotCom or any other supplier to find what you need.

Let's look at step 2.

Simply stated, these are your customers. Those people who will buy whatever you choose to sell. And it is a truism that the more customers you have, the more you will sell of anything. But how do you find customers online to buy your product? That is the $ 64,000 question and those who answer it make loads of money online. Personally, I use a host of traffic generating techniques that most online marketers do: CPA offers, Blog and Forum posting, reciprocal links, YouTube videos, and even buying traffic from brokers. Don't worry about this part now because at the end of this article I will share with you how to generate lots of traffic to any site.

Let's look at step 3:

This step deals with a whole range of things. Everything from putting your website together, setting up your squeeze page, offering a freebie to encourage visitors to provide their email address in order to build your list, setting up your download or thank you page that will deliver the digital product to your customers, and even setting up some follow-up or back-end offers to your list. You also have to set up your payment buttons like PayPal or AlertPay. This process is typically known as the sales funnel as it takes a visitor or a lead from your squeeze page to your order page and then thank you page after a sale has been made.

Let's look at step 4:

After a sale is made, you have to deliver the product. In step 1 I suggested digital products because of their attractiveness and ease of delivery. Digital products can be delivered to your customers at the click of a button and that makes them attractive to both buyers and sellers. No waiting, no headaches, and no worries. Once the process is all set up on autopilot it literally runs itself. All you have to do is periodically check up on it to make sure that there are no glitches in it, and it will keep running for ever.

You can deliver the product right after they get to the download page or you can send them to your autoresponder which will deliver a series of messages to them, with the first one containing the download code for their product. The advantage of this second method is that you will also be building a list of subscribers that you can market to in the future, so I suggest you do it this way. In the long run your income will grow more with this method.

There you have it. The four "S's" of making money online.

Newbies can make money online with proper training.

Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned professional you can benefit from the lessons of a successful marketer.
