Start an Online Business With No Money Example #2
Until recently I have had roadblocks with writing.
I have tried to get this blog going since 2014 with no success until early 2017.
What changed? I became a search engine marketer by making videos and posting them to YouTube.
I found the easiest method of producing content consistently and then hit a stride in it within a few months of creating a video every day.
Affiliate marketing is basically an arrangement that is made with an online retailer in which they agree to pay a commission to an external website for any traffic or sales that have been generated due to referrals.
This marketing strategy is based on revenue sharing, and since the promoter is being offered a financial incentive, you are more likely to recommend the products to earn the cash through the affiliate program.
What skill or passion is inside of you that you love to help people accomplish?
What problem do you have that you can document your process of solving it?
Defining an audience you can lead is what can make or break you loving the business you built two years from now, or just doing another thing to make some money.
Step 2 - Defining Your Niche
In the two examples above, they are in a niche that has many products to offer or create; the meditation niche and make money online niche.
Depending on your passion and interests, there are virtually unlimited niches to enter.
There are over 55 niche ideas in this post if it is not clear to you what niche your skills and passions are in.
Step 3 - How Can You Become a Content Machine?
The ultimate goal of becoming a content machine is to be found by people that are searching for the information you are providing.
Therefore, you should become a search engine marketer.
Do you speak in front of a crowd with no problem? Do you crank out words effortlessly in your journal? Do you enjoy talking one on one, around a table or campfire? If you thrive in front of a crowd, begin YouTube marketing.
Email marketing takes a while to dial in if you are doing a podcast or YouTube. You want first to be efficient at producing content otherwise you have no business.
I did not begin to collect email addresses from my YouTube subscribers for about 6-months. I made money before that though by recommending a product I was using in my business and having affiliate links in my video’s descriptions.
My wife with her meditation blog offered and sold services she would fulfill via conference calls at first. We quickly realized the same five or so questions were asked on these phone calls, so we recorded the answers to these top asked questions and sold them as a course. It later grew into a consistent 6 figure membership program.
Once you have an audience, you can thentest out offers until one hits and becomes your online cash machine. You have some of these ideas when you start, but they become extremely clear when you engage with your audiences more and more.
They email you questions and ask you questions on YouTube or Facebook; you will then begin to see consistent questions people are looking to find answers and solutions for. Once you are privy to this valuable information, you then create your product, find an affiliate product to recommend or utilize any of the top 10 ways to make money online.
Another way you can earn money online is by taking surveys. The other ways we have discussed like podcasts and blogging all require a certain level of prerequisite knowledge, albeit small. But getting paid to take surveys only requires that you have very basic internet skills.
Several companies are offering cash in exchange for survey answers relating to products and services. Many legitimate survey sites and companies also allow you to regularly withdraw the cash you have earned taking the surveys.
The Only Trick To Earn Money Online Without Investing Money
The only trick to these money-making ideas is that there is no trick. It takes discipline, showing up and doing the work every day, being of service at scale, and helping your target audience through content that is targeted on a search phrase.
Show up, become an expert keywords finder, create content that helps, and learn what your audience craves. You can then successfully help them with either your ownproducts or your affiliate products. And there you have it. An online business begins to grow and thrive.
But once you get your first check from an affiliate commission or you make your first sale on your own info product, you’ll realize that you can do this.
The second one is a little bit easier and just gets easier and easier.You have it in you to succeed, now walk in it.Excited to one day soon hear your story of how you started making money online without an investment!
So, what are you going to make tomorrow?
A blogpost, video, or a podcast?
