You've heard about Online Marketing as a way to make a nice chunk of
change, but you don't have any programming skills and wouldn't know an
html code if it bit you. Can you still become successful and make money
Yes. You can.
There are a number of ways to make money online without a website. We'll discuss how you can blog your way to big bucks.
Blogging is a website (don't worry no website skills needed) that
you update every few days with posts about your chosen subject.
Visitors can comment on your posts for others to see. You can place
advertising on your blog - provided automatically by Google - and get
paid whenever anyone clicks on one of those ads.
You can also use a blog to sell products as an affiliate.
Affiliates get a commission, determined by the product owner, for each
sale that is generated as a result of one of your visitors buying the
Clickbank is used by thousands of product owners as a payment processor
and as a method to pay affiliates. It is free for affiliates to sign up
and find products they would like to promote.
LiveJournal, blogger.com, and wordpress.com, are just a few of the
free sites where you can quickly and easily set up your blog.
Pick a market niche you're familiar with as the topic for your
blog. Every few days post on your blog. Of course that's not all you
need to do. You have to get people to your blog to read it and
hopefully click on your paid ads, or on the products you're promoting
as an affiliate.
Most of the blog sites are searchable by keywords. Search on the
same words you've used for your site to find other blogs. Then leave a
comment on the relevant blogs and include your link to your own blog.
If you don't have time you can hire people to comment for you. The cost
runs between 10 cents and a 1.00 per comment posted.
You can submit your blog's url to search engines so if someone
wants information on 'how to raise guppies' and that's the subject of
your blog, your blog shows up for visitors to find.
You can also write articles on 'how to raise guppies' and
distribute those articles to directories. Ezinearticles.com and
GoArticles are two directories which are favored by Google. Again if
someone is searching for 'how to raise guppies' your article will show
up. They click on the article and then click on your blog.
With a little bit of research and time you can become successful
and increase your bank account with Online Marketing just by blogging.
