How to make money online for beginners?

Updated: Dec 26, 2019

Just like you, in 2012, I spent a lot of time searching for a lot of documents and resources to answer the questions "How to get rich?", "How to make money online?" and of course "How to make money online for beginners?". I enrolled in some courses related to this topic and I started practicing affiliate marketing in June 2012. Again June, until now I realize that every starting point in my life has started in June.

My starting point is a traditional marketer. As a traditional marketer, especially in a big company, often dislikes learning about other business or marketing models. If you ask them, what is MLM? how is it good? What is affiliate marketing? How does it work? I believe that not many people know or answer very positively. Our favorite job is to create a new product, find a direction for the brand, give a story, make a TVC, make events, or online programs to promote the product. Me too, but then I forced myself to approach new things, and had to understand other marketing models. And luckily in my traditional marketing work, there is also a lot of opportunities for me to expose the knowledge related to Online Marketing. Therefore, my starting point is somehow better than you, but I will slowly share enough knowledge so that you can implement them easily.

Who is this article for?

1. People who are looking for a way out of the 9-5 lifestyle or who want to make money at home and anywhere with a laptop and wifi.

2. Anyone who wants to increase their income other than the main source of income.

Declaimer: although I introduce some kinds of online businesses, especially affiliate business in this article, I don't plan to make money from you in any way. You can see I don't put affiliate marketing link in my articles, even I don't care about on-page and off-page SEO in this website. The only reason is that I don't intend to promote this website. I only use this website as my communication tool to my partners and customers.

What I want to write is not merely to teach you how to make money on the internet, but to help build a real and sustainable business. Hopefully I have enough time to write down everything I know.

There are many ways to make money online, from setting up a website or Fanpage to selling a group of items you have, creating your own product to sell, promoting other people's products to earn commissions, earn Money online as a professional Hot Blogger, freelancing on e-commerce centers, etc.

I can't write all the ways, here are just 3 ways to make money online as below:

1. Collaborators (Affiliate)

A collaborator is a form in which a supplier of a product or service pays commission to program participants cooperating with them.

After signing up for a free account, you will be provided with a link that when your customer clicks on that link to go to the provider's website, the provider will know it is your customer.

In addition, you also get support for marketing tools such as banner ads, promotional coupons, discounts, product introduction emails, gifts, etc.

The only thing you have to do is to bring traffic to the provider's website through your link, the remaining jobs from payment, delivery, customer care are guaranteed by the supplier. duty.

Because commissions are often attractive (on average from 40-50%), Collaborators have quickly become one of the popular forms of making money on the Internet.

Reputable companies in the world that offer affiliate programs include: Ebay, Amazon, ClickBank, Google Adsense,...

The details, will be written in other articles.

2. Product creator:

Owning the right product is the best way to create a stable and long-term income stream. You can leverage the power of affiliators to increase your reach to potential customers. Collaborators are an extremely effective way to increase traffic without spending any upfront costs. As a product creator, you can build your own customer list, create credibility and trust. In addition, you also have a sales representative, automated mailing system, and email list.

3. Service providers:

Service providers can do everything from hosting, web design, copywriting, SEO services, or connecting creators with collaborators.

This market is very potential, but the competition is huge, moreover this job requires long-term investment both in time and financially.

How to make money online for beginners?

An easy way to make money online is to affiliate marketing or become an affiliate. You do not need to create products, set up payment systems and accounts, do customer service, customer care, etc. You simply introduce products to receive commissions, like traditional work.

The difference between traditional and online affiliate marketing is that you do the work entirely online, and you can work from home without having to meet anyone or have to call to offer. Simply, you only introduce the product to customers who sell products through the content of articles on your website.

This method is to create content that is optimized to rank high in search engines. People will find it when they search, click, and buy what they need and want. When your article is good, it can still rank high on search engines and help you earn money year after year, as long as you maintain the job of ensuring the rank of the article.

You can earn 3,000 - 4,000 USD / month or more easily. However, it takes your time, effort, and perseverance. Doing business online is like any business model

Now, you need to invest in getting up and running, that takes time. The good thing is that online businesses can spend less time and invest less time and money than other business models.

Follow these 10 steps in order to start a business and make money online, especially for beginners:

5. Read and follow the steps of doing SEO.

6. Create optimized content and generate keyword plays.

7. Sign up for the affiliate program for your niche market.

8. Write Product Reviews for the products you choose.

9. Build a system of backlinks pointing to your website or article.

10. Continue writing articles, building backlinks, and interacting with potential customers via Social Media.

There are many websites or brochures that can help you earn more than 3,000 USD in the first month, or earn 500 USD / week from the 3rd week. I advise you not to be too hasty, it will be easy for you to be trapped by bad guys, or easily frustrating when you don't get there in the first few weeks. However, it is feasible to achieve an income of 3,000 - 5,000 USD in the first year.

The posts for each specific step will be updated to help you make it slowly. Please do not be impatient. If you are not clear about anything with the steps above, please make a request by commenting below the article. I am happy to help you get started! 😉

Well, there is another problem that I think everyone wants to know, even me of 4 years ago would have wanted to know, but I don't know where to find information, whether it is to do or be successful in this job. What do I have to invest? how much? I would like to write a separate article for you to better understand this issue. Click here to learn more >>> Cost of investing in an online business.

Great post indeed! Nowadays using internet creates vast opportunities in making passive income online and one of them is blogging. Thanks for sharing such a very informative post!

I just started my blog not a year ago because i was inspired by a story of people who make their living online and most of them quit their 9-5 job and make full income online using internet and laptop.
