Start with the Basics
Successfully making money online seems like an overwhelming challenge at times. There are so many options to start with, and so many resources to read, that it can come across as too much work.
It doesn't have to be this way!
Forget agonizing over options or reading thousands of pages of research material. Making money online is easy and attainable for anyone who's interested. With just a little bit of planning and forethought—and no expertise whatsoever—you too can be making money in no time.
The Bare Bones of Making Money Online
? Most online money-making advice stems from the same basic concepts.
? Just one quality information source replaces the need for thousands of others.
? Learn the basics of online sales first; learn the rest as you go!
Countless websites, e-mails, and e-books promise to let us in on their secrets for unlocking untold fortunes on the Internet. Just thinking about the amount of information out there is overwhelming at times.
If you've ever wondered how you could ever learn enough to sell successfully, you'll be happy to learn one more secret. Almost all of that information simply recounts the same basic sales methods—over and over again.
They recount these sales methods because these sales methods work. Every author in every medium just adds a bit of their personal flavor, and then re-packages the material as a new product.
Choosing the Right Resources
? Look for a general reference that applies to multiple ways of making money online.
? Choose what you'll sell (and how you'll sell it) based on what makes the best fit.
? Experience is the best teacher—start selling right away!
What does this mean for you? You don't need stacks of books or printouts to learn how to make money online. Instead, you just need a basic grasp of the basic ideas.
One or two resources that outline and illustrate these ideas are more than enough to get you well on your way. Look for authors that teach in a way you understand. For example, most people grasp concepts quickly when given real-world examples. If this sounds like you, then you'll want resources that are full of practical examples and explanations.
Start with a general online sales reference that covers all the major ways to profit from the Internet. It should also provide step-by-step instructions for each area.
Using this information, decide which profit pathway is the best fit for you. Think about how to apply the basic sales strategies you learned to your chosen money-making method. Then start trying them out! As you go along, look for more specific information resources that address your particular needs—but never forget the basics.
What's the bottom line? Start from the bottom up. Even the most advanced sales strategy is built on the basics. Get your hands on one or two quality guides that explain how the tried-and-true sales techniques work. Then dive in and start selling!
