The first strategy to make money online is building a list.
This strategy is the most important step to continue tomake
money long term. If you do not already have some type of
autorepondersystem you need to get one. Don’t be cheap here
either because your entirebusiness will hinge on this one
You can build your list many different ways. You can buyleads
from reputable list building companies and get them into
yourautoresponder. Most good list building companies will have
an option to send anemail to your autoresponder so you don’t
have to manually input the lead’sinformation.
Another effective way of building your list is from thetraffic
that visits your website. This step, which is probably the
effective,does require you to have a website in order to
implement an opt-in list form. Of course if your Affiliate
program does offer a list management service thenyou can send
traffic to the affiliate URL, but I don’t recommend it as you
willusually not be able to email the entire list with special
To make the most of your opt-in form and get the mostsignups,
you should place it in your sales page text. It should
bestrategically located in the sales text after you present a
problem. The titleof your autoresponder email series should
address the problem by offering asolution. In the example
we will assume that I am selling a hostingpackage and I want
opt-in subscribers to my email course for back-end sales.
Example: You can use the pre-built websites or build yourown.
Many people think that building a website is hard, but I can
show you howeasy it really is. Take my 10 day email course

The second strategy to make money online is driving traffic to
When I say traffic, I don’t just mean any old traffic, Imean
targeted traffic, people who are motivated and ready to buy
and willmake you money. You can use programs and techniques
as Google Adwords,bloging, article writing and linking to
targeted traffic to your website. GoogleAdwords is a resource
offered by Google in which you can payfor your site to be show
when certain keywords are queried in their searchengine.
The secret to using Adwords is not to bid high on popular
keywords. Instead,what you do is find similar keywords that
still describe your website, but are usedmuch less frequent.
These keywords will cost much less to bid on and will allowyou
to spread your money out over many different keywords, getting
the most bangfor your buck. You can use this handy little tool
to find similar keywords:
Bloging is another greatway to drive targeted traffic to your
website. To get the most out of this techniquethe blog should
be hosted on the same website as the sales page witch links
toyour affiliate program. Once its setup all you have to do is
fill your blogwith good quality content.
I recommend writing your own content which specificallyrelates
to your affiliate program and or products. Once you have some
contentyou will need to submit your RSS feed to the as many
blog search engines as youcan. This will put your blog out
there for other webmasters to use as content feeds on their
This win-win situation allows webmasters to have
on their website, which increases the value of that website
whiledriving targeted traffic directly to you.
This is done by the URL link that youconveniently placed under
your name after the blog was written. That means that your
is on a blog feed that is onthousands of websites. Not only do
people click those links but Google seesthese links pointing
back to you and thinks that you’re popular and you arerewarded
with a higher page rank.
Articlewriting is basically the same as bloging except
theinformation in an article will need to have more useful
content and be pepperedwith keywords that the webmasters are
looking for. After completing yourarticle you will submit
(syndicate) it to content sites as opposed to blogsearch
Content sites are places where webmasters go to findspecific
content to offer their readers. If you are a good writer you
may atsome point build up a name for yourself and finagle a
deal with a webmaster towrite exclusives for his site. His
readers get great exclusive content and youget highly
Linking is perhaps themost widely used form of increasing
traffic and page rank. However, if doneincorrectly you could
end up hurting your Google page rank and ultimatelyloosing
potential buyers. You will need your own website for this
technique asyou will need a ‘links’ page to place your
reciprocal links on.
Many people go and submit their URL links to link farms inan
attempt to trick Google into giving them a better page rank.
This does NOTwork; in fact Google has been known to penalize
websites for engaging in theseactivities.
The secret to linking is to find websites in your nichemarket
which have a Google page rank of 4 or above and enticing the
webmasterto list your link on their website. You may think
you would be helpingyour competition, well you would be. But
your competition would be helping youas well. It’s better to
send leaving traffic to a partner than just having themclose
their browser window, and remember that works both ways.
The strategies listed in this article do work and they
willincrease you sales and residuals it done correctly.
Reciprocal linking, Blogingand Article writing are great ways
to bring massive amounts of high qualitytargeted traffic to
your website. Those strategies combined with an effectivesales
page with an integrated opt-in email list can make your
business soar tonew heights. You can and will make money with
this system, Guaranteed!
