Fast Cash Secrets Costing Under $25

Feb 25, 2008
You have probably heard all the hype about making money online. You may even have tried a few programs and failed. Don't be discouraged as 95% of all Internet businesses fail in the first year. This is a sobering fact but with some training, you can use this knowledge to your advantage.

First, you need to be aware of the fact that scams are out there. Some are pretty straight forward and easy to spot. Others are not so simple to detect. A basic rule of thumb is that if you are asked for considerable cash up front, be wary. Be sure that there is a real product and not simply an idea. I have even seen programs that claim the splash page is the product and require a significant cash outlay (sometimes as much as $300 or more).

Now, that being said, you can be sure that it is easy to make money online. It just requires a few things to be successful. What you need to be successful online are a product, a market that wants your product and a way to sell that product to them.

Your product can be one that you develop yourself or one that you find elsewhere and acquire the right to sell openly. The best one obviously is the one you develop yourself. You make ALL the money from the sales, not just a commission. This is called direct sales.

If you sell somebody else's product, you will be receiving a commission. These commissions range from 10% to as much as 75% in some cases. This is called affiliate marketing and can be very powerful.

In either case, you will still need a hungry consumer base to market the product to. You can do a little research to find people looking for your product. This is called building a list and with a list and a good relationship with your customers, you could send off a simple email and make a considerable amount of cash fairly quickly.

The catch here is you need to have a relationship with your customers, which is called pre-selling. All this means is getting to know your customers and gain their trust. Once they have bought from you successfully, they are likely to return.

A method of selling to the consumer is a critically important part of the sales process. Once you have attracted customers, you need a way to sell your product to them. For this, you will need a web site, a killer sales letter, and an auto responder at the very least. The sales letter will sell your product. It should generate interest and buzz as well as prompt the customer to click your "Buy" button. Make your customer believe that they have to have what you are offering. The auto responder will help manage all the emails you will get as well as keep in contact with new prospects on a 24/7/365 basis.

A web site will give you a global presence as well as provide the medium to deliver the product (if it is electronic) or gather the shipping information for physical products. It serves as a central point for returning customers to find you easily.

Making money online is easy if you plan a little and know the right things to look for. These are the basics. What you do is up to you and simple choices can change your life with the click of the mouse.
