Updated on July 3, 2011

 The idea of working from home on the internet is appealing to everyone, can it be done? Yes it can and a lot easier than you think. There are hundreds, if not thousands of ways to make money on the internet. If you've been looking around the internet looking for ways to money online you've probably heard of blogging, paid surveys, build a website,ebay which you means you've been bombareded with ideas how you can make money online not actually HOW to make money online. When I first started my quest to make money on the internet some years ago it was very frustrating as everyone gave an overview of how you can make money online. Blogging sounded great, my own blog that I could make money from. Blogging isn't easy and doesn't generate instant income for a beginner to making money online. You have to learn about SEO, Keyword Research, How your blog should be etc etc. Its quite disheartening, you can make millions from blogging but not until you learn a lot of other things that go with blogging.

 You may have even thought or have even done some paid surveys, this will not make much money or millions you might make enough to pay a bill at the end of the month but this isn't what you're looking for. Because people everyday are looking to making money online the internet is dominated with summaries,report,theories,false promises as a newbie you'll find it hard to find what will actually make you money. What you want is a " Blueprint " a Step by step a REAL how to make money online. You've saved yourself a lot of time looking for ways to make money on the internet by reading this far, becasue Im going to show you a Blueprint a REAL HOW TO make money online with little to no experience online. I can only tell you what you can do and how to do it, it is up to you to take action and put it in to practise. You can make a lot of money on the internet and a lot of what you may have previously read online will generate an income but as I said before you need to know a lot about internet marketing and affiliate marketing already.

My Blueprint For You To Make Money On The Internet

You've probably already been told to sell items on ebay, your items from your home  and although this is a great way to make money online but it's not sustainable because you'll end up running out of things to sell. If you haven't used ebay before then you should start straight away to get familiar with it, it is very easy to set up and start selling all within the same day. If you already have sold a few items already on ebay then you've got a head start. The whole point of making money online is to make a sustainable income and eventually leave your regular 9 - 5. So if we're going to be selling on Ebay how can you make money from it is a newbie and with little start up capital.

If you was to sell new items your probably be thinking you'll need to buy bulk orders from wholesalers and well, you can do that but there is actually a much easier way to sell brand new items and this is how I made money online.

Dropshipping is how you can make money on the internet via eBay. Dropshippers are like wholesalers in the sense that they stock large quantities of items like a wholesaler but you don't have to buy in bulk from them you only buy a product from them once you've already sold it!

Lets say you find a dropshipper that sells teddy bears. They'll post it on their webiste with a picture and description of the product a long with the price you pay as a reseller ( that is the name of you, you're a reseller ). The great thing about dropshippers is they'll post the item out for you in plain packaging so the buyer think it has come from you so also make sure you find out their postage charges too. You then go to ebay copy the picture from the dropshipper and the descripsiton ( although you should change it from the site in some way, the more you do the more you'll get use to writing good descriptions ) and then list it for sale put a quantity of ten. You will need to figure out the price you will want to sell your teddy bear for before hand , remeber you have paypal fees and ebay fees so work this out before hand. You know what you'll have to pay for the item ( cost price + postage fee ) so make sure after your ebay deductions that you are in profit. Here is an illustration of how it works.

 So once you've placed the item on ebay when you sell the item the buyer pays you the total amount, you then go on the dropshippers website and place an order and for what you just sold with them, pay for it  and they then send your order out to your buyer. Your profit is left in your paypal account.

This is an excellent way to make your first sale on the internet. I love dropshipping as it can become a full time job, there are many who make 6 figures plus a year from it. There are pitfalls and scammers out there but they can be easily avoided. When you find a dropshipper do a google search on them and see if they get good reviews. Obviously, I've already done a lot of this already so wrote a hub on 5 dropshippers that will et you started.

There are hundreds of dropshippers that sell a variety of different items so you can definately find one that suits you.

A word of warning, a newbie stay clear from electronics and mobile phones, they produce to much aggrovation for a new drosphipper. They are very desirsable products to sell but there are too many people out there wanting to take your money, dropshippers and buyers.

The great thing is you can try dropshipping with no upfront costs other than your listing fees which is pennies.

So here is an actual blueprint of how you can make money online. You can always learn techniques on how to make more sales and be a better ebayer ( Ive written loads about how to do this ) but this is a quick way to start making money online as a newbie. Ebay have done all the work for you to get buying customers to ebay all you have to do is take a piece of the multimillions of dollars that are spent each day on ebay.

      It can be a great sideline income, Bill. The best way to stat is part time and let it gradually build. Stay away from electronics in dropshipping.
