Mar 26, 2008
If you are wondering how to make money online but do not know how to start, do not worry too much. In this article, we will go through some basic ideas. The purpose of this article is not to make you an expert but should be able to provide you with some ideas so that you can start doing more research for yourself.

These are the 3 things you need:
1)A simple one page website with a lead capture form/squeeze page
2)An autoresponder service
3)A blog

Let's discuss them in more details.

1)A simple one page website

Perhaps you may think it is too simple but the truth is you don't need to build complicated one hundred pages websites to start making money online. All you need is one simple webpage with a lead capture form/squeeze page to capture your visitors' email address.

The reason why you want to capture their email address is so that you can follow up with them again and again instead of losing them forever. For example, if you are trying to sell a dog training product to a dog owner, you will want to offer a free report like "How To Train Your Dog To Stop Barking Easily" in exchange for their email address.

2)An autoresponder service

An autoresponder is needed so that it can follow up with your visitors automatically for you. It may come in the form of a software or a paid service.

3)A blog

You may also want to consider starting a blog. It is recommended to use a wordpress blog. You will need to register for a webhosting account as well as a domain name. You should choose a domain name with relevant keywords.

The purpose of a blog is to provide your visitors with relevant and useful content regularly so that you visitors will return to your blog. You will then be able to sell services from your blog.

Obviously, it will take some effort for you to generate sufficient traffic to your blog but all business will require you to put in some effort.

You should try to master how to generate free traffic. This is especially important to people who have limited funds as well as beginners. Some free traffic generation techniques are article marketing, forum posting, social networking site etc.

Take not that you do not need to master every single technique. Just pick one or two that you like best and master them. You do not want to become a jack of all trades but just a master of one or two. Only when you master them do you go on to explore other techniques.

Hopefully, this article has given you some ideas on what to research for.
