Mobile Apps Are a Profitable Business


When it comes to making money online, there are certainly hundreds of different ways to make this happen. But if you have coding experience, it may be even easier for you to pull in some profit. Sure, you can freelance and help others develop applications, but wouldn’t it be better if you could create your own apps and make money from them? Who knows, you might create something that will be liked by millions of users.

The possibilities are endless as far as app types go. Remember, what you create doesn’t have to be particularly advanced or even too useful. You could make an app whose only purpose is to play animal sounds and still get hundreds of thousands of downloads.

If you’re new to mobile app development, there are plenty of resources that will help you get started out rather quickly. You can find guides, as well as software development kits for both the iOS and Android platforms. Now that an ever increasing amount of people own a smart phone or tablet device (many times they have both), there has never been a better time to get in and start cashing in on this new trend. All statistics show that the number of downloads for mobile applications is only expected to grow.

But how do you actually make money from the apps? There are two ways. The first one is to charge people a fee to purchase your app, which is often relatively small, usually ranging from $1 to $5. But this may not always be the best approach, especially if you’re new to the game and people don’t really know who you are or what your app is supposed to do.

There are other solutions in that case. You can release the app for free and still make money from it, by embedding mobile ads in it. These can either be links to affiliate offers, or ads that pay you for each click or impression. However, remember not to over do it. Remember that mobile screens are small and nothing ruins the user experience more than an app which has ads that cover nearly half of the screen.

You can also do a combination of both. This is often called the freemium model and is used by some of the best app developers in the world. You release one version of your app for free, which has basic features. A “pro” or advanced app is also made, but this version has a small cost. You can entice your users to upgrade to the paid version by offering more functionality as well as reminding them that the paid version doesn’t display any ads.

If you’re thinking of joining the market, be sure to do some research first. Look at some success stories, but also some failures and problems that other developers had. Try to find a specific niche and an idea that is truly original. The apps that were the most successful are usually those who were the first to offer something which wasn’t previously available.

Start Making Money With Blogging Today


Over the last few years, blogs have grown in popularity and it would seem that now everyone and their dog has a blog. If you check out some opportunities to make money online, you will see that there are many who claim that it is possible to make decent money by blogging. But is this really true?

In reality, it is possible for anyone, with little experience in the blog world to start earning money from blogging. But it may not always be as straightforward as many would think it is. If you want to make money from blogging, you will first need to be patient and learn how to do it properly. There are two main ways to make money from blogs. You can either have your own blog, or write for someone else’s. The second option is far more simple and can allow you to make money more quickly, so we will look into it first.

  • Ghostwriting

Here, you will be creating blog posts for someone that owns a blog and will be paid either as a share of the revenue that your blog posts bring in, or more commonly, a fixed price ranging from $3 to $50 for each post that you make. The blog that you write for could be an informative one, or it could be a businesses blog that serves mainly to promote the products and services of a certain company. Your posts will usually be published under the name of the blog owner or a pseudonym. If you want to get started with blogging quickly, then this is one of the fastest and easiest ways to make money from it. You can make some pretty decent coin if you are hired by numerous clients to update their blogs on a regular basis.

  • Guest blogging

This is similar to ghostwriting, in the sense that you will be writing posts for a blog that isn’t your own. However, there are a few differences. As a guest blogger, the posts that you make will usually be credited to your name, along with links to your own blog, website or social networking profiles. This allows you to gain some notoriety in the online world as people can more easily find the content that you have written online, even if it wasn’t published on a site that you own. If you create good content, it is also very possible that you will get regular assignments.

  • Other tasks that don’t involve writing

You can also make some money without having to create any written content. For example, someone could pay you to design logos and graphics for their blog. Or you could act as an administrator for one, uploading already made content at specified times, moderating and responding to comments left by visitors, keeping track of usage statistics, etc. You might also have the opportunity to take written content and to transform it into another type of media, like videos that will give a better explanation of what is being discussed.

Some Overrated “Work From Home” Offers: Part 3

Some Overrated “Work From Home” Offers: Part 3


If you want to make some money online from home, there are quite a few opportunities out there for you to take advantage of. However, you need to be careful when selecting the best online business opportunity for you. There are plenty of programs that are perfectly legitimate, but you need to watch out for some which make exaggerated claims of potential earnings and misstate the true nature of the business that you will be involved in. Here are a few more things that you should be careful of when you search for online earning opportunities.

  • Freelance work programs

You will find a few websites that claim to offer you access to exclusive opportunities to find freelance work, as well as promise to give you highly valuable information on how to succeed as a freelancer. They often claim that it will be easy to find work and that you can earn a full time income from freelancing online right from the start.

It is definitely possible to make a living online from freelancing. Even a full time income, depending on the projects that you find and your skills. But there are no “secret databases” of freelancing opportunities. Freelance jobs, such as transcription work, article writing, programming, translation, graphic design and more can be found for free on various sites, without you needing to join a membership site and pay anywhere from $30 to $100 a month for this privilege. Just take a look at sites such as ODesk, elance and more.

As for tips and advice on how to increase your earnings, these can be found for free just by searching for information on blogs and forums. All that these sites do is to collect information from other sites and then charge you to read the same things you can find for free if only you spend a few minutes doing some research.

  • Day trading / forex

You will also find sites which claim you can make money from the markets by day trading stocks or participating in the foreign exchange (forex) market. Again, it is possible to make money this way and many people have been highly successful with it. But it is simply not as easy as a lot of sellers of guides and systems tell you. First, you will need to have access to a significant amount of risk capital if you want a shot at making more than just a few dollars a day. Then, you will also need to gain an understanding of how markets work and how you can profit from them. There are no magical systems which allow you to make guaranteed profits from the markets. Otherwise, everyone could become a millionaire in just a few weeks. Remember that while you can make money, there is also the very real possibility of losing money, especially in the beginning.

If you want to try out some strategies or systems, it is best to practice for a few weeks with play money first before you invest real funds. This will give you an idea as to whether this type of work is right for you.

More Efficient Use of Online Marketing: Checking Your Progress


If you own a local business and use the internet to promote it, then you’re probably concerned as to whether you’re getting the results that you’ve wanted from your marketing efforts. After all, nobody wants to spend time and money on online advertising only to make little progress with it. This is why it is very important for you to monitor your progress with internet marketing and see which of your strategies work and which ones don’t work as well. This will give you an idea as to whether you should keep doing what you’re already doing, or whether there are certain changes or improvements that would be in order for you.

While this sounds easy to say, keeping up with the performance of your online marketing efforts will require a bit of work, especially if you haven’t really been paying attention to the results that it’s been bringing you. This happens to many small business owners that get caught up with their main line of work, especially if their business has been doing quite well as of late.

The first thing that you would want to do is to make a list of all of your marketing and advertising channels that you’re using. Then, divide these into sub groups. So for example if you use social media and classified ads sites, you would have these 2 as main advertising types. Then you would list the specific social networking sites that you use for your business, as well as the classified ads websites that you post your ads to on a regular basis. The same can be applied to other methods of online marketing that your business uses, such as pay per click ads, where you can further drill down the traffic and results that you’re getting by each network, each specific ad campaign & ad copies, as well as individual text or banner ads that you’re running on the network. Remember to be as detailed as possible as this will help you optimize your efforts.

Now that you have this list done, you would need to track where you website traffic is coming from. If you haven’t already set up a tracking script (there are many free ones out there that you can use), look at your server logs to see where the traffic on your business website is coming from.

As for tracking conversions (visitors who became paying client or took other action that is profitable for you), there are many free scripts that you can use in order to see which clicks are converting, if your site is directly selling items to customers. Otherwise, if customers contact you by phone or walk into your place of business, then tracking conversions won’t be that easy since you will be limited to asking customers how they found out about your business.

If you’re satisfied with the results, then keep doing what you’re doing… but keep paying attention to where your traffic is coming from. If on the other hand, you want to improve some things, then we have some more tips for you tomorrow.

More Online Marketing Mistakes You Shouldn’t Do: Part 2

More Online Marketing Mistakes You Shouldn’t Do: Part 2


When it comes to online marketing, there are many mistakes that marketers and website owners should beware of and avoid as much as possible. Avoiding these mistakes will simply mean that you can take better advantage of all the opportunities that internet marketing has to offer you, in addition to giving you the potential to make more money from your online business, with less worries and potential problems down the road.

Here are some more of these mistakes that you would want to avoid as the owner of a business that has an online presence, no matter how big or how small:

  • Ignoring the feedback, comments and opinions from site visitors and past customers

The web has gotten to be an increasingly social place, where information is being shared not only by businesses, but also by the consumers themselves, who often give feedback and advice to others about where to shop online. Google Places, for example, allows people to leave a rating and comments regarding local businesses that are listed. Specialized websites that are built around a certain niche, for example, Trip Advisor for travel related services, have an extensive section of customer reviews and ratings of different businesses and services. And of course, let’s not forget discussion forums that are related to the niche where your business is operating in, where users frequently share advice about which businesses are the best ones and which ones should be best avoided.

All of these sites provide a very useful service to consumers, allowing them to get more information about the experiences of others before they do business with someone. If you own any kind of business, look up your name on Google to see if there are any ratings and reviews that were posted about it. This will give you the chance to see if any customers or site visitors have had problems with what you’re offering and in many cases you can give a response and invite anyone that had a problem to get in touch with you.

Regarding web forums and social media groups, it’s well worth it to register and take the time to participate a bit in them, even if there were no posts, positive or negative, about your business. Simply by being present on social sites that are related to your niche, you will increase the visibility of your business and have the potential to get some new customers, even if you don’t actively advertise on that specific website.

Also, if someone has had a problem that wasn’t resolved, it gives them the chance to contact you through the website to work something out rather than posting a negative review.

With all of these things considered, you should be aware that watching your online reputation is something very important. Since it doesn’t even take that much time to do, maybe an hour every 3 days, being on top of what is being said about your business in the online world is definitely something that you shouldn’t be skipping out on.

Understanding the Target Market for Your Info Product

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Understanding the Target Market for Your Info Product


If you’re going to be selling an info product, one of the things that you need to do to get the most sales is to understand who your target audience really is. This will help you set the price of your product at an appropriate level and also advertise, promote and market your product through the right channels. Understanding your audience means knowing who your potential buyers are going to be, as well as how much they would be willing to spend in order to find a solution to their problems or to answer the questions that they have. Here are some questions to ask yourself about your buyers:

  • How Motivated are They to Find a Solution to Their Problems?

Are your buyers people who are going to be really hungry for the information, or are they going to be people who will be merely curious about the niche? For example, if you create a beginners guide to online marketing, chances are that your buyers may not know that much about the niche and would be simply curious to see how online business works. However, if you’re selling a complete course on using social media to make money online, your buyers will already have some knowledge about the topic and have a stronger interest in it.

  • Have They Already Seen Plenty of Ads for Similar Products?

This depends on just how “unique” your product is. Is there a high chance that your potential buyers have already seen information about competing products and maybe even bought some of them? In this case, the price of your product will be a bit more important, as you will be competing for your buyers attention with other products out there.

  • Is Your Product Aimed at Newbies or People Who Already Have Experience?

Products that are at the introductory level and aimed at newcomers to a certain niche will usually do better if they’re priced at low, attractive rates such as $9.95 or $14.95. People who already have experience in a certain niche and are looking to expand their knowledge, on the other hand, are often willing to spend more money to get that information. They would be happy to pay more, as long as the product that they would be getting will genuinely give them what they’ve been looking for.

  • Do Your Buyers Spend a Lot of Time Online? What Sites do They Visit?

Knowing this will help you with your marketing and advertising. Is your target audience known for spending a lot of time on the internet each day? What kind of websites do they usually frequent? Do they visit niche related sites such as discussion forums? By knowing this, you can have a better idea as to where you can advertise your product for maximum exposure to your targeted audience. Remember that the more targeted your advertising will be, the more likely it will end up being seen by someone with an interest in what you’re going to be selling them online.

Building Your Blog for Online Marketing: Part 2

Building Your Blog for Online Marketing: Part 2


Previously, we’ve seen a few tips that would help you build a blog that you can use for online marketing. While deciding on the kind of content you will have on your blog, choosing a good hosting provider and monetizing your blog are important things to consider, there are also a few other tips you should keep in mind if you want your new blog to be a great tool that will help you make more money online. Here are some more of them:

Choose a Good Theme

When you create a blog by using a system such as WordPress or Joomla, you get thousands of options when it comes to themes for your new blog. A theme is basically an overall design, sort of like a template, that will determine the look and feel of your blog. Choosing a theme is relatively easy, as when you look through WordPress or Joomla, you will see thousands of free themes, as well as some paid ones that you can instantly apply to your blog. However, this is not something that you will want to rush into. It’s better for you to look carefully at all the designs available and select one that will work well for you.

The theme that you use will need to match well with your business and should be similar in appearance to your main website. Don’t hesitate to ask colleagues for advice on which theme will be better for you.

If you have some graphics and programming knowledge, you can design your own blog theme, or edit an existing one to make it match your needs better. You can also pay someone to make a custom made theme just for your blog, however the services of a professional theme designer could cost several hundreds of dollars.

Make Sure Your Blog is Inviting to the User and Easy to Navigate

One of the most common complaints that blog readers have is that the blogs seem to be filled with ads, opt in boxes and other monetization options, so much that it is difficult to actually see what link will lead them to an actual content page and which one is an ad. Of course, it’s important for you to make money from your blog and this is probably one of your primary objectives. But remember that the first purpose of the blog is a communication tool that you use to convey information to your visitors. Therefore, it needs to be easy to navigate for the user.

To determine whether you’re doing things right, create your blog and install your theme, make any customizations necessary and add a few test posts. Then show the result to some people to see whether they like it or not. Get some input on what they think should be changed or improved on your new blog. This will allow you to make some changes before you officially launch your blog.

Another Use Of Craigslist for Online Entrepreneurs

Another Use Of Craigslist for Online Entrepreneurs


Previously, we have explored some ways that you can make some money off Craigslist by promoting an e-commerce site that you own, as well as providing services. These are some great uses of this free classified ads site. However, there are some other ways that you can use it to your advantage as an online entrepreneur. Here are some more ideas:

 

  • Find Temporary Staff to Help You With Your Projects

 

While you can definitely do this on internet marketing forums, you can also use Craigslist to build up your virtual team of staff members. There are a few advantages of doing so: first of all, the people who respond to your ad will usually have a genuine interest in earning a bit of money for small, part time jobs and will be less likely to be scammers. By getting some staff members on Craigslist, you will also be “creating jobs” for your local city, even if they are just temporary positions. Also, since these people are local, you are far more likely to find people who understand and can write in proper English, as they will be located in your city.

 

Let’s say you need some regular blog posts for your business blog. You can hire someone and pay them $10 a day or so to create 2 or 3 blog posts for you. Or, if you need someone who can create simple web pages cheaply, you can hire a web designer for $10 to $15 an hour, instead of paying a professional design firm 10 times that amount. There are many unemployed people or students who are looking for part time job opportunities on Craigslist and who would be quite happy to find a legitimate opportunity to work from home and earn a few extra dollars.

 

But unfortunately, there are plenty of people who are still spamming MLM offers or some other scam programs on Craigslist. For these reasons, avoid using the words “make money online” or “work from home” in your ad. It will often be seen as spam/scam by viewers and will be flagged down rather quickly. Be as descriptive and professional as possible to avoid this.

 

Here is an example of a bad ad:

 

Make money online! Looking for people who can work from home today! Email Bob for more details.

 

Here is a better one:

 

We are an online advertising firm looking to hire 2 workers for the creation of promotional content. Must have excellent written English skills. Knowledge of web hosting industry is an asset. Contact Bob @ Acme Inc. if you are interested in this position.

 

Many people ask if you can still use Craiglist for affiliate offers. The answer is yes, but there are a few things that you should do and other things to be avoided if you want to see any kind of results from this. We will take a look at other uses of Craiglist for online marketing tomorrow.

Is it Still Possible to use Craigslist to Make Money Online?

Is it Still Possible to use Craigslist to Make Money Online?


Craigslist is a popular and free online classified ads site. While it certainly isn’t as popular as say Google or Facebook, it is still one of the most popular sites on the internet, with millions of users from all around the world visiting it. This has given online marketers a lot of ideas on how to monetize all of this traffic. Unfortunately, Craigslist is not what it used to be when it comes to internet marketing and you have black hat marketers to thank for that. What some people did went far beyond just spamming CPA offers to downright lying to people such as promising them jobs or mortgages if they complete a CPA offer for a credit report or a biz opp. As a response to that, Craigslist has upped its security mechanism and has even posted warning in many of its sections that specifically mention affiliate marketing.

 

But this doesn’t mean that is is completely useless to online entrepreneurs. There are a few ways to use it for your online marketing efforts. Here are some of them:

 

  • Promoting your e-commerce site

 

If you have a website that sells merchandise, then you can still use Craigslist to promote it. For example, if you sell clothes or electronics in your online shop, then you can post an ad in the proper section of Craigslist and get some traffic to it that way. Make sure to post in the right section, or your ad will be flagged down rather quickly. Also, don’t post the same ad in different cities at the same time. While there is nothing wrong with a global e-commerce site posting ads in multiple cities, remember that Craigslist is not mainly aimed at internet marketers, but rather for small, local businesses to post ads in the city where they operate.

 

  • Providing services

 

If you offer some services that can be done over the internet, then you can use Craigslist to get some business too. For example, if you create websites for businesses and individuals, then you can put an ad in the right section to promote that. There are plenty of services that you can do over the internet and have your clients pay your by Paypal or another payment system. Some examples include: translation, writing, graphic design, flier/advertising design, promotional video creations and a whole lot more. If you want to appear more professional and therefore more trustworthy when providing these services, you can always create a simple “business” style website that gives details of what you do and your prices, as well as get a toll free phone number to get your clients to reach you. You can get one for a few dollars a month and then forward it to your cell phone, or just leave it to always go to voicemail. Here’s a tip to get more sales: put a special discount or coupon code in your ad and tell readers to mention it when they order.

Full Time Online Business: Getting Ready

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Full Time Online Business: Getting Ready


Previously, we have seen some of the things that you can do to earn money online if you wanted a micro or mini online business. This would allow you to earn a part time income or some extra cash from your online marketing activities. While this might be satisfactory for some of you, what about those who would like to make more money, like a full time online business.

 

Of course, this is possible and has been done by many other people. Some regularly make six figures a year online. Some have even made millions. While doing this kind of money is definitely possible, it is not something that is easy to accomplish, no matter what you have heard. Sure, some of the tasks to do this may be “simple” from the technical point of view, but doing them correctly will still require some time, effort and commitment from you.

 

We will get into various methods to make money as part of a full time online business, but first let’s discuss some of the things that you will need in order to get started:

 

  • Time

 

Running a full time online business will mean that you will need to spend at a minimum 30 hours per week on it. This is the bare minimum and depending on what you do, you may need to work more than that.

 

  • Money

 

While there are certain types of business that can be started with little or even no money, this is the exception, rather than the rule in terms of full time online business. But it doesn’t mean that you will need hundreds of thousands to get started, either. You can start up slowly, and then use the money that you have made to grow your business. Basically, if you don’t have too much start up funding, you will need to be able to reinvest the profits that you have made at the beginning right away.

 

  • The understanding that you will start out slowly

 

Many people would like to make $1000 a day from the very first day they have started their business. Of course, this is possible. Pretty much everything is in the online world. But this is an exception again. You need to accept the fact that it will take at least a few weeks, sometimes a few months, for your business to grow to the point where you will be truly making the amount of money that you had hoped for. Online business, while often very profitable, is not a get rich quick scheme. Those who think of it in this way are the first ones to get discouraged after they realize that becoming an instant millionaire is nothing more than a fantasy.

 

  • Willingness to learn, take risks and experiment

 

You must be capable of learning on your own and be willing to try new methods and techniques to make money. You need to put the fear of failure behind you, otherwise you will never succeed.

Micro Online Business: Being More Efficient

Micro Online Business: Being More Efficient


We’ve seen some ways that you can make money by providing services and only spend 1 to 3 hours a day doing it. This is a good method for those who want to earn some money in the online world but do not have much time to invest in their online business activities.

But how do you maximize your earning potential? Here are some excellent tips on doing so. This will basically allow you to earn more money in less time.

  • Eliminate all distractions

You’re supposed to be working. Therefore, sign out of Facebook, Myspace or Twitter. Sign out of MSN, AIM, Yahoo Messenger or Skype, unless you actually need these to communicate with your clients. Close all other tabs and browser windows that you don’t need. This will help you concentrate on the task at hand. Sure, some people are able to work and talk to a friend on Skype at the same time. But it is not recommended, as it will simply take away from the time you have to make some money online.

  • Build a good reputation

As you will be getting projects mainly from forums and freelancing sites, building a good reputation is important. Depending on the site, clients will be able to leave you feedback every time you complete work for them. The more positive feedback you get, the more of a good reputation you will get and this will increase your chances of getting more work.

  • Pick longer and more profitable tasks

Let’s say you are writing articles. Which do you think is better: writing 3 1000 word articles or writing 10 300 word articles? Even if the pay would be the same, choosing one or two bigger tasks rather than a few different small ones allows for better use of your time. This is because you will not have to stop as often and do some research on what to write about or check the clients requirements.

  • Strive to get regular work from the same clients

Getting regular work from the same people is much better in terms of making more efficient use of your time than getting work from different people all the time. The reasons for this are pretty common sense. You will be spending much less time making posts offering your services, accepting projects and answering questions from clients and a lot more time actually doing the work. Your clients will already know you and what you are capable of doing and will therefore be more likely to assign work they need done to you rather than picking out a completely new person from the forum or freelancing site.

Getting regular work is not that hard. You first need to start by doing a couple of projects for various clients and build up your reputation. Eventually, someone will assign some more work to you and it could turn into a regular project.

Making Good Use Of PLR – Part 1

Making Good Use Of PLR – Part 1


If you were looking for content to add to your website or for some ebooks that you can resell, then you may have come across someone selling PLR content. You may have been surprised that it is quite cheap or even free. In fact packs of PLR such as articles, ebooks, website templates, graphics, etc. are often given as a free gift when you buy some products in the internet marketing niche or you join a membership site about making money online. Can using PLR really earn you money, or is it just something that is good as “filler” content for your website?

As you may already know, PLR products give you “Private Label Rights”, meaning that depending on the license included with the content, you can do pretty much anything you want with it, including republish it, modify it, bundle it in another product, etc. This creates a wealth of opportunities in which PLR products can be used, some of which could indeed be very profitable for you.

Let’s take a look at PLR articles. Obviously, we all know that in order for a web page to be both attractive to readers and search engines, it needs to have regularly updated and unique content. PLR articles can help you with that. However, there are certain things that you should know about using them. If all you need is content for your site and you don’t care too much about SEO (i.e. you don’t expect to get most of your traffic from organic search results), then you can simply use the articles as they are on your site.

However, if you want to increase your ranking in the search engines, the content that you supply on your site needs to be actually unique. You will therefore need to rewrite it. However, we all know that rewriting content is far more simple than actually writing an article from scratch. You don’t really need to think up of original ideas, just say the same thing than the PLR article is saying but in different words. For example, if the original text is: “I saw a huge dog running on the street”, you could spin it to “I looked at the street and saw a big dog barreling through”. You get the idea. You can, of course hire a freelancer to do it for you. In that case you will save money, as rewriting is usually quite cheaper than writing original content. You can spin the PLR articles as many times as you desire to suit your needs.

Remember that you actually don’t have to use the entire article on your site. For example, if the PLR articles are 600 words each and you only need a 300 word blog post, you can use only parts of the article on your site. You can also split the article into two different posts as well.

Getting Started In Online Writing – Part 2


Online article writing can be a great way to make some quick money online. If you have what it takes, you can also turn it into a full time freelancing job. But to get started, the first thing that you need to do is to find some clients who will pay you for your writing. Here are a few places where you can do so:

Internet marketing forums:

These are forums such as Digital Point and the Warrior Forum. They are a meeting place for those who want to earn money online to discuss ideas and network with each other. They are also a place for people who offer their services, such as article writing or graphic design to make acquire some customers and make money. Internet marketing forums are a great place to find work due to the fact many people are seeking content for their website in order to advance in search engine rankings or simply to present their products or affiliate offers to prospective clients. A lot of online marketers either aren’t good enough in English to write quality articles, or simply don’t have the time to write the necessary amount of content each day. This is why they seek to outsource this part of the job to others and why these forums are a good place to get clients.

Advantages:

  • You set your own terms and prices. For example, you can offer discounts to repeat customers or those who make larger orders.
  • If your work is of good quality and liked by clients, you can get a lot of repeat business. In this line of work, it is much better to work with a few different clients than to be constantly hunting for more work after writing a few articles.
  • You get paid immediately. There is no waiting period of 2 weeks or 1 month to get your money.

Disadvantages:

  • Some forums require you to pay around $20 to post a thread to offer your services. Some of them also require that your thread be approved by a moderator before it is posted.
  • If you are new to the forum, a lot of the people will be wary of dealing with you and may only give you small orders to begin with.
  • Possibility of getting scammed. While the majority of people on internet marketing forums are there to conduct honest business, there are always a few scammers out there who would simply have you submit the work and then disappear without paying. This can be mitigated by using common sense: if you are dealing with a new member with only a few posts and they are making a large order, arrange to split the work in a few parts. You would then send part of the work, get paid for it, and then go on to complete the remainder. Watch out for excuses such as “I can’t, I’m only getting paid in a few days, I will pay you then, etc.”

A Successful Business Product


In order to make money online with a product it has to be successful. To make a successful product you must consider products that will attract the most attention, products you are extremely knowledgeable in, and can enjoy creating.

Attracting Attention
Do some online research and you can easily find products that are sought after in today’s market. If you are looking to create a product for use on a social media site, it would only be fitting that you focus on the more popular sites for social networking, like Facebook and Twitter. If you were to focus on a media site like MySpace, it is a less popular subject today than it once was, therefore it will not make as much profit as possible.

Knowledgeable
Products you market online should be related to a niche that you are familiar and knowledgeable in. Your consumers want to know that you are an expert in the particular topic you speak about. In order to ensure your consumers a product they would want to pay for you need to deliver information that is not easily accessible in other places. If a consumer finds value in your product you are more likely to receive recommendations and repeat business.

Creativity
Use your creativity to market your product and share information in ways that other sources do not. Since you will be dedicating a lot of time and attention to your product you need to make sure it is something you enjoy doing. The more you can enjoy creating one product the more information you deliver to your consumer, who can easily tell if you are passionate about your particular topic of choice.

Consider these three things before you develop any product to market online, especially if you are looking to generate money from your product!
