Your mind: The Ultimate Money Making Machine
marketers make money online? The best way to make money
online is to find an expert and get that expert to write
about his area of interest. But where can I get an expert?
To paraphrase a popular song, “The Guru lies in you”. You
are your own expert in your area of interest be it classical
weaving or oil painting or any hobby or interest you have.
This article examines how you can use your hobby or area of
interest and make money from it online.
What if you just enjoy something but do not have a deep
grasp of your area of interest? Someone once wrote that if
you spend one hour a day reading on just one subject, within
a year you will become an expert on that area. The same can
be applied to any area of interest you may have. The library
and the internet represent a plethora of information and not
knowing is not an excuse today. So therefore your area of
interest in your own mind represents a means by which you
can make money online.
Money making becomes fun when you write about your area of
interest and help others learn more about that area of
interest and make yourself some money online at the same
time. Below are some simple ways that people have used to
make money online from their hobbies and areas of interest.
1.Ebooks The internet has opened up a new arena in the
global flow of information. People go online to find out
information and are willing to pay for information.
Electronic books (ebooks) therefore have arisen to meet the
need for knowledge online. An example of an ebook can range
from a simple PDF file to the more elaborate ebooks
generated by ebook generation software. Some people are
making money with cooking recipes and others with
traditional herbal remedies. Do you have an area of
interest? Consider writing a simple ebook and then getting
other people to build your website and sales letter for you.
So find an area which people are interested in and you are
knowledgeable about and sell ebooks on that subject online.
Once you have ascertained your area of interest, you can in
addition to writing your
ebook, start building a website
around your area of interest. Making money from websites is
easy once you have enough content and website traffic. Find
an affiliate program that is targeted to your website
intended audience and you receive a commission for each sale
you introduce to that company. Large affiliate networks are
usually the best for this and companies like Commission
Junction and Linkshare are good places to start. For example
if your website deals with model planes, you could have a
link to a store that sells model planes and a link to a shop
that sells model plane supplies. So in other words, the more
referral sales you make, the more commission you will rake
Starting a newsletter on your favourite topic is also a good
idea. A good newsletter would provide lots of tips and help
to subscribers this creates lots of trust in your
recommendations and would increase your chances of making a
sale if you recommend some product to your list. Always
recommend good products and test them yourself before
sending a letter recommending it to your newsletter readers.
But when you stumble across a good product that is in line
with your newsletter that you like yourself, send out the ad
with your affiliate link and make money from that posting.
4.Signature Lines leading to Affiliate sales
If you have a particular interest, why not add a short ad to
a product related to your interest in your signature line in
your emails to your friends. Something like “This is a good
restaurant I like” with a link would give you some
commissions while allow you to share your love for a
particular item with them.
In conclusion, find out what you love and you can use that
love to make money online. This love for any interest that
you may have would give you the drive to work on it and that
will pay off in the end and allow you to make money online.
