Are you one of the thousands of people sitting at their computer surfing the web to see if there are any legitimate ways to make money for free? Are you hoping to find the "right" answer to solve some of your income needs? If you are, then I am glad you found this article. I am here to tell you that you can indeed make money online for free. You simply need to know what you are doing and avoid falling for and of the get rich quick schemes that are abundant online. Read on and let me share.
There are several ways you can start making money online, but today I want to focus on affiliate marketing. According to Wikipedia, affiliate marketing is simply the marketing of services or goods over the internet. How it works is that you create sites featuring a particular product, and then drive traffic to that site in hopes that a sale is made. If it is, the vendor pays you a commission for the sale. Typically bills range from 50-75% of the sales price. Pretty nice profit for you.
The key to successful affiliate marketing is knowing what is involved each step of the way, and how to execute each step correctly, and efficiently. For example, if you can not make a good landing page or find the right keywords for your campaign, you are not going to convert any traffic. Likewise, if you only know how to create web pages, but do not understand how to generate traffic, you will not be successful in your online endeavors. You simply must understand each step in the process and complete it effectively.
Here is a brief list of what you need to understand and know how to do:
- How to do effective keyword research in a profitable niche
- How to build a website, landing page or squeeze page to send your traffic to
- How to optimize that site for the search engines (called SEO)
- How to get that site indexed quickly in Google
- How to generate FREE traffic using several different methods
- How to build effective back links to your site
At first this may all sound complicated, and it can be. But once you have educated yourself on all parts of the process, and devised a business to follow, you will find that you get quite effective at building these campaigns to make money for free.
So what is the first step? Educating yourself, for sure. You must know what you are doing before you really can make any money. If you do not take the time or make the investment in this step, your efforts will most likely not result in income. I am speaking from experience. However, once I took the time to learn what I was doing, I started to see sales, and then money come in. Now it's been 6 months, and it has simply continued to grow, as the number of campaigns I have working for me online have grown. You can do the same thing.
