Want to make money online? Here’s 10 Proven Ways!

In tough and uncertain economic times, people are taking charge of their economic future and turning to the Internet to earn money. The Internet is filled with legitimate ways to earn from home if you know what to look for.
This article provides realistic advise on how to earn from reputable online sources and run your own profitable home-based business successfully.

Let’s get started. Here’s what you need to know to make money online consistently and legitimately.

1. Do set yourself up with an online place of business – get a domain address. For $10 or so per year, it’s worth it to book your own domain name. It makes you look reputable, permanent and more accountable. Separate yourself from the sketchy programs out there by having your own domain name. Your website with a domain name is your place where you do your business and the location for all your programs, products, services or resume. If you have other websites from various affiliate programs you are involved, that’s fine, you can add the links to those programs on your domain based website.

2. Do book a website hosting account with a reliable hosting company. It doesn’t matter if you use WordPress to create your site, or a Content Management System provided by your host, but DO get an account that gives you 100% control over your site to add content, pages, widgets, images, video, search engine optimization, stats tracking, sub-domains etc. The days of a 3 or 4 page bland static website are long gone. Today, website owners can (and should) add tools, gadgets, blogs and other resources on their site to make it more customer friendly, search engine friendly, and social media friendly. Effective sites engage the visitor with live chat options, video, member areas, commenting and more. If your hosting provider doesn’t include site analysis and traffic tools, Google offers a free program that is very helpful for tracking important data related to your site traffic. It’s called Google Analytics. Website hosting will be in range of $10 – $50 per month.

Now let’s look at proven successful revenue sources.

3. When it comes to earning from online sources here are some proven successful ways to making money online:

a) Affiliate Marketing: Affiliate marketing means that you sign up with a company as an Affiliate, refer business to those companies and you collect a commission for sales. You will be amazed at the growing number of large brick and mortar companies that offer affiliate programs. You’ve likely heard of Amazon but what about the Affiliate programs offered by WalMart, Pay-Less Shoes, Orbitz, Old Navy, G.I. Joes, ABT Electronics and American Express to name just a few. How each company pays commission and how much varies but with a high traffic website and precision marketing you can generate tidy income from affiliate marketing sources. Don’t be afraid to look outside of recognizable retailers for good Affiliate Marketing ideas. ClickBank.com for example, allows you to promote thousands of digital products. Vendors post their digital product to ClickBank, you promote it, when a sale is made you collect a commission. ClickBank handles payments and refunds so your only job is to pick the products you want to sell, promote, and collect commission. Pick a number of solid reputable affiliate marketing programs, but only a few so you can focus on those and only those to see success. I have to include a shameless plug here for my own company, Worldprofit.com. Worldprofit includes in our Earn-At-Home Program a number of Affiliate Marketing products, reseller opportunities as well as a comprehensive sales and marketing training program. As the economy has fumbled, affiliate marketing and work at home programs such as what we offer at Worldprofit have exploded.

b) Blogging: Don’t stop at Affiliate Marketing, money can be made from popular blogging sites by adding in advertising revenue from sources like Google Ad Sense, this is called Monetizing. Food bloggers, celebrity gossip bloggers, expert columnists and many more are generating sweet advertising revenue by including ads on their high traffic blogs. The ads are generated from an Advertising program such as that offered by Google and many others. They key to this revenue source is high and ongoing traffic. You will also need really unique frequently posted niche content to generate a following and get steady traffic.

c) Sale of Products: Of course you have seller options such as E-Bay for selling products either new or used. E-Bay is not a new idea for making money online but it is a source that many people have been relying on for years. Wholesale items, overstock products, collectors novelties, bankruptcy sale items, fire sale items, garage sale items – even houses – are just a few examples of what people are selling on E-Bay. Those who are reliable sellers earn status as trusted sellers and can earn significant money selling products.

d) Site Flipping: Flippa is a website that through an auction process, allows you to buy or sell complete niche websites, many with an existing customer base and verifiable traffic. If you are clever and have built up a successful online property you an sell it on Flippa. It’s a similar concept as buying a home, fixing it up and selling it. In this case though you create a site for a nice market, monetize it, grow traffic, a prospect list and a customer database, then simply sell the site. For someone who doesn’t have the interest in creating a site and all the work of building traffic and customers, a ready-made website can be purchased. Take a click over to Flippa.com to see new for sale listings, active listings, browse, price range, sold sites and more.

e) Freelancing: If you have a specialized skill or knowledge, have a look at freelancing sites such as Elance.com. Over 1/2 a million jobs are posted every year on Elance. This is a site where you can post your unique skills. Both companies and freelancers (called contractors) can post their jobs/skills. It’s unique in that you can access specific jobs including work for programmers, writers, designers, consultants and so forth. There are so many options, take some time to review these mentioned and keep an open-mind about what is available. Other sites offering a similar service include FreeLancer.com and Freelancejobs.org By posting your profile to these sites and taking on contact work you can earn considerable income.

f) YouTube.com Not everyone is destined for instant success like Justin Beiber after simply posting a video to YouTube. There IS money to be made with YouTube, that fact is a certainty. YouTube’s partner program allows you to post videos and earn revenue as your audience grows. Remember the scared baby video? What about the talking dog videos? Those videos and lots more are generating a steady source of income for someone due to the popularity of those videos. Initially the income can be very small, but if your video becomes hugely popular your commission checks will grow at the same time. Get good at it, get a following and then release videos to keep that source of income growing. Visit YouTube’s Partner section of their website to read success stories and how the program works.

g) Multiple Streams of Income. Here’a final thought on earning from online sources. Multiple streams of income is the key to consistent revenue, pick a few programs or options and focus on those. Make sure you are not spread to thin and can devote adequate time to building those sources of revenue. You need to have the time, commitment and an advertising budget to promote on a consistent basis.

4. Realize you must work your business every day to expect to see results. Don’t expect overnight success, or even success after a few weeks. If you are in this for a hobby fine, but if you want to build an online business with a steady source of full time income realize that it will take time. It’s a slow build and a lot of work.

5. Understand that CONSISTENT marketing and promotion is critical to your success. Ever notice that Coke is always advertising? Coke is continually in your face reminding you they are there. They sponsor events, they run TV ads, Super Bowl commercials and taste-test booths. The reason is simple. Every business, big and small must constantly promote their product or service. Your online business is no different. Promotion is a daily task. How much you earn is directly related to how much time and effort you invest in marketing your product. Learn about the power of social media including FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Digg, YouTube, and so many more. If you don’t have a blog get one, and post unique content daily with rich key words related to your products/services/business and include integrated links to social media for maximum exposure.

6. Factor in that you will have to allocate and spend some of your hard earned money on advertising. Any successful business requires that you put money back into it. If you think you will build your earnings relying exclusively on free methods of advertising you will be disappointed. Yes, you can promote your business using free sites, and free services, but accompany that with actual paid ads at reputable sites. Don’t limit yourself to the major search engines like Google and their Ad Words program. Also consider Safelist Advertising and Traffic Exchanges. Safelist advertising once spurned as the poor man’s advertising vehicle has gained popularity and is free to get started with very low cost advertising options. Traffic exchanges work in a similar way and are worth consideration. For best results in either Safelists or Traffic Exchanges be prepared to pay for ads to see the best results. If you are on a tight budget combine both free and paid methods of advertising, and make sure you have an Ad Tracker software program so you know which ads are generating clicks and from which source.

7. Set goals. Are you going to make $100 today? $500 this week? How much? Once you have set your goals, set your plans for how you will accomplish this. What are the daily, weekly, monthly tasks you will do to make your financial goals a reality? Don’t allow your self to get distracted or pulled down with tasks that don’t get you closer to where you want to be. If your day ends with no commission report or sales report that says you earned SOMETHING today, rethink your plan for tomorrow. Get up early and get busy.

8. Have a positive attitude, I can’t stress this enough. Put a smile on your face, believe, then do. In my work as a trainer and consultant, I talk to people everyday who have had mixed success in building an online business. The people I have watched grow and build their own successful business are those who think positive and take action. Don’t be brought down by negative people, the know it alls, the ones that rain on your parade. Be mindful that while they are talking you down, you are doing something to improve your financial situation. Let that negativity slide off your back and propel you forward to work harder, and smarter.

9. Accept that you will have failure. Get over it. Learn from your mistakes. Move on. If it was easy to build a successful online business everyone would be making millions.

10. Find a mentor or training program that fits for you. The web is filled with software, e-books, training programs, webinars and more. You have all of this information at your fingertips. Find the best sources and get started.
Don’t make the mistake of learning, study, analyzing but never actually DOING anything. You won’t find success thinking about it, success is the results of DOING something to make it happen.

How to Create Blog Titles that DEMAND Attention!

If you are going to spend the time it requires to blog then you want to make certain your time is for the maximum return.

You want readers right? You want your blog to be shared in social media right? You want more  traffic so  you  earn more money right? 

Smart bloggers who earn considerable revenue from their blogs, know it’s critical to have well-thought blog titles.  

Here I share some critical points about writing blog titles so you get noticed among the millions of blogs out there.

For effective blog titles do this:

A great blog title gets the readers attention then draws them in so they actually read your blog. Remember, some web sites, readers and devices like cell phones and iPad aps, show only the title of your blog. Your introduction or summary of what the blog is about may not even appear so your title better be instantly eye-popping and interesting. If readers see only your title, and your title is lame, you are less likely to get readership. Instead make your title catchy, one that immediately conveys what the blog is about so readers think you are click-worthy. Be sure that your title is not word-heavy but is clear and obvious. Readers what to know right away what you have to offer and if its worthy of their precious time to read. When you read my examples below you will get a better understanding of what goes into a Blog Title that DEMANDS readership.

Creating blog titles that will get indexed by search engines, and read by people. 

When creating your titles you want to use as many key words related to your blog content as you can. Before you even start your blog post, think about who you want to read this post and what key words are relevant to your purposes and to your audience. If your blog is targeting a specific audience, try to work that into the title so your title speaks and says to the individual – HEY READ ME! If you want people to read your blog who are looking for specific key words related to what you offer, work those key words into the title.

Consider that people are busy, often they prefer short, easy to read blog posts. Ensure if you can that your blog title relays this by summarizing what you blog includes.

Don’t compromise the value of your key words by being too creative in your title, make sure they are included in your title. With Google recently announcing that fresh content contributes to higher page ranking,  you want to make sure if your blog is about a trending topic, a news event, or breaking news, that it gets scanned first. You can help this happen by integrating the most obvious key words in your title so your blog gets scanned by Google and other search engine bots.

Finally, an important reason to give some thought to use of key words within your Blog title is this.  If you have any type of monetization on your blog, such as Google’s Ad Sense, the key words you use will trigger specific related topic ads to appear on your site. This is beneficial to you, as ads that appear on your blog are more closely matched to your Ad Sense ads which offers you somewhat of an advantage for potential earning through clicks on the ads that appear on your blog.

Convey what your Blog is about with a smart title.

In your Blog title, say exactly what your content is in an enticing way. If you can find a clever way to shock, or make someone take notice within your Blog title, do so. For example, offer 7 Tips, or 10 Strategies, or 10 Ways to Drop 10 Pounds.  This style of titling is a good way to convey that your blog is brief but includes valuable information. For some blog titles you may find it helpful to convey a sense of urgency so readers gets the feeling they will miss out on some really good, juicy or helpful information if they don’t read it. Celebrity gossip and Hollywood bloggers are particularly good at dangling carrots (celebrity names with a hint of scandal) within their blog titles to attract readership.

You may be thinking to yourself, WHOA! She is asking for a lot to be incorporated into a simple blog title! Yes, I am but it is easy if you know how to do it, you will get better at it as you go and your results will reward and motivate you. It’s for your own good – really. To help you get started, I’ve included 6 examples of effective and less effective blog titles below. 

Example 1

Strong : How to grow roses that make your neighbours green with envy.
Weak:    How to grow roses.

Example 2

Strong: 7 Sure-Fire Ways to get rid of allergies for good!
Weak:   Allergies: a problem experienced by 30% of Americans

Example 3

Strong:  The TOP 10 BEST Hotels in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan
Weak:    Going to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan? Here’s our picks for the best hotels.

Example 4

Strong: 5 Strategies That Will Triple Your Sales Today!
Weak: Looking for ways to increase your sales? We have what you need to know.

Example 5

Strong: Why Herman Cain can kiss his Presidential dreams good-bye!
Weak:  US Presidential candidates, a look at who’s running, the favourites and the predicted losers.

Example 6

Strong: 10 PROVEN Ways to Shed Weight FAST! Hollywood Celebrities do this, you can too!
Weak:  If you really do want to lose weight, we can help you.

See, it’s not so hard. Spending a few extra minutes to think and tweak your Blog Titles will get you more readers, more traffic and more revenue!

**** What do you think? Do you use catchy titles for your blogs? What is your experience?

REVIEW: Google+ Business page: How To Get One and Why You Should.

Google has been looking for ways to compete with Facebook and others in the social media realm while still appealing to business customers.
 
This week, Google released Google+ Business Pages.
 
Google+ shares some similarities with the other social media main players (FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter) but has unique value of it’s own.
 
With 40 million and growing users you want to make sure your business is well represented with quality, key word rich content that you control and publish. It’s not a good idea to ignore the giant, so get your Google+ Business page and start making it work for your business. Google is integrating the +1 system currently in use for search results into the Google + pages as well.
 
Here’s what you need to do to get a Google + Business Pages, then use it to generate interest, traffic and leads for your business.
 
1. To get your Google+ Business page you will need to set up a free account.
 
Sign into your Google+ Profile, click on "create a Google+ page". You then pick the category of the page you are creating, and click create. The categories included are: Product/Brand; Company/Institution/Organization, Local business/place; Arts/Entertainment/Sports or Other. According to Google , don’t fuss if your business does not fit closely with the categories, they suggest just picking OTHER. Google clarified that at this time only the LOCAL Business listings are handled differently as they include a location map, contact and hours for your business. It’s easy and fast to set up.
 
2. Once you have your Google+ Business Page do this.
 
a) Post photos! Google likes to index images, and they are hungry for new content. Create a public face for your company by posting pictures that best represent your company, products and services. Don’t limit yourself to a picture of your building, or founders, include graphs, mission statement, awards and more. Once your photos are loaded it is easy to share them.
 
b) Promote! Expand the reach and audience for your Google+ Business page by promoting it to your blog, LinkedIn, Face Book, Twitter and your other social media accounts.
 
c) Share! Capitalize on the fact that others using Google+ also have circles that connect them to others. Encourage people to share your content with others in their circles for more exposure.
 
d) Analyze! As smart marketers know, it is not enough to promote, you want to know where you are getting traffic. Google+ provides you with a clever tool for analyzing your traffic and leads generated from Google+
 
e) Backlinks! Now, here is the part where you really want to pay attention. In your Google+ Business page, you have the option of adding recommended links. You will find this under the ABOUT TAB. This is where you are going to want to include links to your hottest offers to generate leads, traffic and sales!
 
Finally, if you have a Google Ad Words account you can link it to your Google+ Business page.
 
We like Google+ and it’s fair to say you now need to add Google+ to your list of must-have social media resources.
 
If you are looking for more marketing exposure for your business or products also have a look at:
 
Google Base: add your entire catalog to Google’s free product search database
 
Google Places: If you have an actual physical address for your business (not a home), it is recommended that you include your business on Google Places. When you do so your location will show up on a Google map along with your contact details.

Review: What Google’s Fresh Content changes means to marketers.

Google has announced changes to their search algorithms so that more relevant and up to date results appear first.
 
Google uses 200+methods to rank pages, and this recent announcement regarding fresh content has HUGE implications for webmasters and marketers.
 
Says Google: "We completed our Caffeine web indexing system last year, which allows us to crawl and index the web for fresh content quickly on an enormous scale. Building upon the momentum from Caffeine, today we’re making a significant improvement to our ranking algorithm that impacts roughly 35 percent of searches and better determines when to give you more up-to-date relevant results for these varying degrees of freshness." Google went on to add this, "Frequent updates. There are also searches for information that changes often, but isn’t really a hot topic or a recurring event. For example, if you’re researching the a specific product, or you’re in the market for a new car and want reviews of a specific car, you probably want the most up to date information.
 
So here is what you need to understand from this announcement to improve your website ranking and ideally increase your sales.
 
1. If you don’t have a blog, start one NOW.
2. Blog or post articles about recent events or hot topics that are trending to give yourself an advantage
3. Blog or post fresh new content to your site DAILY if you can, frequent updates is paramount.
4. Blog about topics or events with YOUR own key words embedded in the content.
5. Up-to-date review sites about products that have rich quality content with key words gives you an advantage in ranking.
Google is essentially telling you what their indexers and bots look for when ranking web pages. Listen to what they are telling you, take this information and start blogging, not once a month, but daily if you can. Make sure your blog is monetized to maximize your opportunities for profit and lead generation.

Restructured Bootcamp with 30+ Lesson Plans.

Here’s what George had to say, "Over the years, we’ve added modules to the training, updated the levels, and integrated new technologies and new software as required. Each week I was trying to cram into the LIVE training as much information as possible. I tried offering a Beginners Session and Advanced sessions but there is so much information to cover, and things change so quickly, it was becoming disorganized. We have added so many more products, services and software over the years to keep the program current, that we outgrew the original 8 training levels. So we decided to completely restructure the Bootcamp Training from start to finish to incorporate more training, more resources, more videos, and more levels to meet the varying needs and experience of our growing Membership."

To summarize these are the upcoming changes to Worldprofit’s Home Business Bootcamp:

-Expanded 8 Training Levels to 30+ Lesson Plans
-Members can progress at a learning speed comfortable and convenient for them.
-Continuation of the designations of CEC, and MCEC for Graduates of the training.
-Integration of even more tested proven marketing strategies.
-Addition of even more video resources and in-depth training on specific products and resources.
-Creation of bite-size learning modules for greater understanding.
-Addition of more advanced concepts for more experienced marketers
-Continuation of LIVE training each week as an adjunct to the training levels and for Interactivity/Q and A’s with Members
-Learning modules to accommodate the needs of Members with very basic or very advanced understanding
-Continuation of Report Cards for purpose of monitoring individual Member progress.
-Improved organization of topics, modules, videos and training aids.
-Social Media Integration
-More resources and sales aids for Affiliate Marketers

The restructured bootcamp will incorporate 30+ levels with the goal of explaining and demonstrating the 100+ tools, software and services available exclusively to Worldprofit Members.

Worldprofit Inc., announces overhaul of Home Business Bootcamp Training

Over thirteen years ago, in 1998, Worldprofit started the first online Home Business Bootcamp Training.

At the time, Worldprofit’s program was the only one available online. It was (and still is) unique in that, on completing the training, Members graduated as a Worldprofit Certified E-Business Consultant (CEC). With additional qualifications, Members could go on to earn the designation of Worldprofit Certified Master E-Business Consultant (MCEC). Today, Worldprofit’s Home Business Bootcamp continues to be the only online program providing the kind of precise, detailed hands on training, and support needed to build a successful online business. What has made the training so unique is that it’s not text book instruction and theory, it’s all based on actual real world application.  The training is a result of years of combined hands-on direct experience by George Kosch and Sandi Hunter, two original co-founders of Worldprofit since 1994.   The training experience is real, the training is LIVE, the people are real, helping each other in an online home business community.

As those in the tech industry knows, you can never stop creating, building, updating, advancing and so, today, George Kosch, co-founder and Instructor for Worldprofit’s Home Business Bootcamp announced a major overhaul to the program.

Here’s what George had to say, “Over the years, we’ve added modules to the training, updated the levels, and integrated new technologies and new software as required.  Each week I was trying to cram into the LIVE training as much information as possible. I tried offering a Beginners Session and  Advanced sessions but there is so much information to cover, and things change so quickly, it was becoming disorganized.  We have added so many more products, services and software over the years to keep the program current, that we outgrew the original 8 training levels. So we decided to completely restructure the Bootcamp Training from start to finish to incorporate more training, more resources, more videos, and more levels to meet the varying needs and experience of our growing Membership.

To summarize here is what Worldprofit has done:

-Expanded 8 Training Levels to 30+
-Members can progress at a learning speed comfortable and convenient for them.
-Continuation of the designations of CEC, and MCEC for Graduates of the training.
-Integration of even more tested proven marketing strategies.
-Addition of even more video resources and in-depth training on specific products and resources.
-Creation of bite-size learning modules for greater understanding.
-Addition of more advanced concepts for more experienced marketers
-Continuation of LIVE training each week as an adjunct to the training levels and for Interactivity/Q and A’s  with Members
-Learning modules to accommodate the needs of Members with very basic or very advanced understanding
-Continuation of Report Cards for purpose of monitoring individual Member progress.
-Improved organization of topics, modules, videos and training aids.

The restructured bootcamp will incorporate 30 levels with the goal of explaining and demonstrating the 100+ tools, software and services available exclusively to Worldprofit Members.

Sandi Hunter, Worldprofit co-founder added this. “One of our goals in restructuring the Bootcamp Training program was to make it easier for Members to learn and progress through the levels.  For those who have no business or sales experience, they can be overwhelmed by what is required to build an online business.  The new bootcamp training will be more focused, more detailed and more organized to help our Members zero in on the most critical steps for getting started and into profit.   Worldprofit’s program is about helping people learn to earn online. The faster we can get people into the training, progressing through the training, and making sales the happier they will be. By adding more levels, we will more easily be able to assess a Member’s level of understanding, and then efficiently diagnose where they need extra help or direction.  In the 17+ years we have been doing this business, we understand well how frustrating technology can be. Our goal is to simplify our training, so that Members get valuable current information, products and services, tools and resources they can realistically use to build a successful online business.  With well over 1 million Members, and tough economic times, the message is clear. People want to take charge of their lives and earn from home. It’s our commitment at Worldprofit, to keep working hard to provide the tools, training and support to help them do so.”

For details, Worldprofit Members can attend the next LIVE Home Business Bootcamp Training Session on Nov 4, 2011 at 10 AM CT.

Review: Home Business Bootcamp with George Kosch Oct 28, 2011

Today’s home business bootcamp session was buzzing with excitement as Worldprofit’s Technical Director, George Kosch released the newest sales tool for Worldprofit Members.

Release of new Personal Live Business Center (PLBC)

Over five years ago, Worldprofit released the world’s first Live Business Center.
This was an innovation then and to this day is something that has not been recreated by any other company.
Today, Worldprofit released a personal version of this technology for the exclusive use of Worldprofit Members.

What it is?

The Personal Live Business Center (PLBC) allows Members to host their own personalized Live Business Center.
Essentially it’s a landing page with an embedded Live Business Center – your OWN Live Business Center.
You are the host, you talk to people, you are in charge.
The PLBC includes an Associate sign up form, and optins for the Safelists, as well as your own personal links and order link. It’s a sales room and you are commander-in-chief. Included is an easy to use Admin area so you can personalize what your PLBC is called, as well as the messages posted on-screen
Social media has been integrated so you can customize what links you wish to show up including Facebook, Twitter and Skype etc.

The primary URL for this new basic Personalized Live Business Center is http://www.TheLiveBusinessCenter.com
(don’t worry if it doesn’t load completely, it’s temporary, we are still tweaking and polishing).

Who gets this powerful new PLBC?

Worldprofit Monitors and Worldprofit Platinum VIP Members will receive the PLBC at no cost.
Currently ONLY Monitors have the PLBC as they have been helping us test the system – thank you Monitors for your help!
When testing is done, it will be released to Platinum VIP Members as well.

What else has George Kosch got coming?

Worldprofit will also be offering a CUSTOM Designed PLBC in the very near future.
This will allow Members to have a custom header, links to your other opportunities and interests, and is hosted on the domain name of your choice.
Pricing is yet to be determined for this customized version.

What else happened during today’s training?

George demonstrated the new Solo Safelist Blaster System.
We’ve been testing this system to get it perfect.
There are two development phases of they system. First phase is getting the database built. The second phase is building an Admin area for our members so they can see who has signed up, credits, see payments from ads etc.
The stand-alone versions of the Safelist Exchange is still in development, it’s a complex system but release is still planned for end of November.

And what else?

Worldprofit’s Home Business Bootcamp Training Levels are being redone to simplify procedures and get new members directly into the marketing and sales!
The goal to is help people make sales sooner and get on track more smoothly.

George was peppered with questions about the new services by Members during today’s training.
Apologies to all members for the technical problems later in the session.

This is a sample of what Worldprofit Members said after seeing the new services today.

James: Your building on this stuff and increasing the value of the Platinum package ten fold or one-hundred fold and not raising the price…. phenomenal. Thank you!

Cheri: Love the Skype Link

Liz: Thank You for the PLBC George it is just AWESOME

Tania I am thrilled….
