3 Main Steps To Making Money Online

Today I was talking to one of my friends, then we started to talk about my online business. He asked me what he had to do to start making money online.

This was my response, there are a lot of ways to make money online, affiliate marketing (my favorite), drop shipping, selling physical products, selling downloadable digital products to name a few.

But whatever method of making money online you pick, there are 3 main steps you must follow and here are the three main steps to making money online.


There are 3 main steps to making money online.

Step 1 is positioning yourself in a profitable area online.

A niche is a group of people interested in a certain topic or a hobby. This means we identify a niche in which people are already spending money.

Your niche could be creating wealth, finding the better half, weight loss, muscle building, making money online, sport, shoes etc.

How do you find a niche?

Good question, there are two ways to find your niche, first ask, yes it is as simple as asking people what they want, you can do this in social media (twitter, facebook, Instagram etc), or you can do this offline ( i remember when me and my friend knocked doors in more than 200 houses in our neighborhood to find out if people would pay for a water generating machine), just do it ask.

The second way to find your niche is by following the money, just figure out where most people spend their money and find that thing, present to them and you will make money.

By doing those steps you will have 1-10 niche ideas, the most important question to ask yourself is if you can produce contents in that niche (if your an expert ) or if you have interest enough to learn about the topic.

After answering that question you will remain with 1-3 niche ideas, just pick the one that excites you the most and go to step two below.

Step 2 -Find out their problem

So now you have identified your profitable niche, the next step is to find out what is the problems in your niche, and among those problems find out which one you can fix, for example, in a weight loss niche there are people who want to lose weight but they don’t have time to go to a gym, there are people who don’t mind to go to the gym but they eat a lot, there are people who can’t do either, etc. That is why it is so important to ask.

After finding out their problem, it is time to give them the solution, the solution needs to be short, and direct to the point. The solution can be in the form of video audio or written words (ebook, blog post etc).

Now you create a one-page website to capture email addresses of visitors who are interested in the solution you provide in exchange to the solution, in another word they give you their email and you give them the simple solution.

Step 3 -Send them more solutions and make money

When people who want the solution you created give you their email they will be placed in a software called an autoresponder. The most used autoresponder software is called Aweber.

You will start following up with these people with more tips and solutions related to their origin problem, you can create an email, login in your autoresponder software send that email with tips and resources ( free and paid ones) with your affiliate link, and if those people open and click the link in the email and buy something you will be paid a percentage of that sell.
