Making an income online really can be as simple as you'd wish.
It need not seem complicated or force you to feel out of your depth.
There are four key aspects to being successful on the Internet with a website:
*Bring traffic to your website-
And there are so many different ways to get that traffic. Including the one you are reading right now-writing articles. Others are such as, pay per click, viral marketing, and ezine ads, to name just a few.
*Capture the emails of visitors to your website-
Now this could be a 'squeeze page', or a pop up or even just a simple form on your main webpage. Capturing emails and therefore building a list is vital to your internet business success. Using a 'bribe' to get them to opt into your list is also very important. Otherwise you won't capture many email addresses.
*Make the first sale from your list, offering them a product or service that will genuinely help them with their goals. (Usually this will be an entry level product and relatively inexpensive, say $20 - $40). And this aspect is very important. You want people on your list to know you are wanting to sincerely help them, not just flog them some junk for a quick buck. Which unfortunately seems to be what many lists, especially those in the Internet Marketing field are all about.
*Make additional sales from that person on your list offering them further valuable products and services. These products and services are of a higher level, what is known as a 'back-end', and also much more expensive in price. You will find these repeat customers are the lifeblood of any business. It is much easier, and cheaper, to sell to someone you have already sold to, than to a new customer.
Its as easy as 1 2 3 4!
So many people and so called 'guru's' make it seem like some kind of mystical, reserved for a privilaged few, information. But in reality, at its core, its nothing more than these four steps. Do these well and you will make money online, make ALOT of it. It is virtually impossible not to, once you have all the steps properly streamlined.
The fact is, all successful business on the internet have these four ingredients. Those that choose to skip one or more of them are the ones which tend to struggle with their own online business.
So which would you like to be.....?
