If you are not sure exactly what you should be doing online, don't worry! In this article I'm going to show you some of the best ways to make money online in the year 2003.
Become an affiliate:
This is probably the easiest and the hardest way to make money online. It's easy as it cost's you nothing to join an affiliate program, but it's hard because so many affiliates fails. The stats are 95% of all affiliates never make a cent, but there is help. With the following resources, you will be a step ahead of the rest.
Allan Gardyne's Free Associateprograms.com is a brilliant site to start with. His newsletter is the best in the business.
Phil Wiley's Free Ozemedia.com and newsletter is great, if you can, I would buy his book straight away.
Rob's Free Profitpuppy.com is a hard hitting guide to affiliate programs, straight from the trenches
Create Your Own Software:
This could probably be a bit over your head if you are just starting, but software is selling like hotcakes online. A few examples of what I mean would be, Headergenerator.com and Ecovergenerator.com. These basically just allow you to create your own graphics for your website with out having to hire it out to others.
You can learn more about software and programming from the following resources.
Ben Praters Softwaresecretsrevealed.com is a great guide from someone who is actually making his fortune with software.
Ryan Deiss's Deadsoftware.com is another great site to learn about using pre existing software for your own profits.
Create Your Own Ebooks:
This is the easiest to get up from the ground as you don't need a lot of expensive resources or knowledge. While it seems every man and his dog are creating ebooks and selling them online, it's still a very viable business, and very profitable if you can come up with a topic for your book that is in great demand.
There are only 2 resources you should be checking out if you are new online, (there's a lot more later on down the track).
One is Terry Deans Netbreakthroughs.com which is the ultimate marketing site online. It doesn't matter what you are creating or selling online, you need this site. He shows you exactly what to do with real life examples. This is the most highly recommended site on the Internet to my liking.
The other is Bill Myers Bmyers.com. This site is great for coming up with product ideas but I'm still a little dubious on his online marketing tactics he suggests. Either way, the cost of his membership site is nothing to the amount of ideas you will get for potential killer products.
Create A Members Site:
This is becoming the most popular method of making money online now. Membersites that pay you monthly is where the money is at. Why work your butt off to write a book that's only going to pay you once, when you can write content that will pay you month after month.
The best place to learn about membersites is Paidmembersites.com run by Terry Dean and a few other marketing experts.
Sell On Ebay:
I can not see selling on Ebay ever fading to the point where it's unprofitable to do so. While it may seem everyman and his dog are selling on Ebay, and it's true, it's still very profitable. All you have to do is find a target niche market and give them everything they need. Don't even think about trying to sell electronic goods on Ebay unless you can get them at super cheap prices and have a large quantity to sell constantly.
The best way to learn about Ebay is to get a few products together and sell them. There are plenty of guides on selling on Ebay, most of them you can get from Ebay itself. I also recommend, if you are going to sell on Ebay, that you have another look at Bmyers.com. He talks quite a lot about Ebay, and it's good information.
Well, there you have. Those are probably the most profitable businesses on the Internet right now.
