The key to making money online is to follow a proven system. A system that will refine and mold you. A system that will stretch you and lead you on a personal journey of self-development.
There are many online systems out there that will make you money online. I will talk about online systems…
We have affiliate marketing, e-commerce, email marketing, dropshipping, blogging, freelancing, video logging etc.
And I am sure that you have heard of some if not all of these systems.
Here is what 90% of people who try to make money online do:
- read every blog out there about making money online
- learn about affiliate marketing, e-commerce, email marketing, drop shipping, creating their own online store selling physical products, blogging, freelance
- get lost in information and advice
- after a few weeks or months…
- they quit…
It’s like they are chasing after EVERY shiny objects.
The truth is that you will get no where by doing this.
The only way to make money online is to follow a proven system.
And the time frame is not short either because you have to pick a system and stick with it 100%.
Identifying the right making money online system
Email marketing, e-commerce, blogging, affiliate marketing, drop-shipping, etc. Just pick any system that you want to stick with.
But make sure you stick with that system and do not deviate from it until you get it right. Don’t lose focus. Don’t get pulled in by another attractive video sales page that promises you the world.
Make sure you learn everything you can about that online system and take the required actions that will make it work. Also make sure that you seek out mentors but don’t be deceived. No one can tell you which system to pick. No one can tell you which business model to go after.
You have to make the decision. Don’t expect someone, especially someone from the internet to make that decision for you.
However, what I can do is to provide you with a proven system that works, and is working for thousands and thousands of people everyday.
The system that will make you money online
- Find a niche that you are interested in (dating, weight loss, online marketing etc.)
- Find a product to promote (as an affiliate) from ClickBank.
- Create a one page opt-in website (using Unbounce or Leadpages)
- Pick an email service provider (Aweber, GetResponse, Constant Contact etc.)
- Integrate the one page website with your chosen affiliate program or product.
- Set up a series of emails that provides VALUABLE content and the occasional promotional emails.
- Drive targeted traffic to your one page opt-in website.
- Continue to build relationship with your list with great content and promos.
I would recommend 3 to 5 content emails to 1 promo emails. Continue to learn email marketing, copywriting and your niche.
There you go, use that system to make $2k a month, $5k a month, $10k a month or $100k a month online.
The more time you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it.
So go out there, take action, pick a system and run with it.
