Discover How to Make Money Online in 3 Simple Steps

Making money online is a lot simpler than most people make it out to be.

So my goal with this post is to simplify the online money making process down to 3 simple steps that anyone can begin taking action on TODAY.

1. Choose Your Money Making Strategy

Discover How to Make Money Online in 3 Simple StepsYour first step in this simple 3-step process is to choose one (and ONLY ONE) proven money making system, strategy or method.

Once you’re making really good money with this one system, then you can expand into other money making ventures, but keep your focus only on one until then.

Here are just a few methods to making money online (again, choose only ONE)…

  • Selling your own digital product(s) such as ebooks, software, Kindle books, etc.
  • Selling services to people such as writing, programming, design, customer support, etc.
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Fiverr arbitrage
  • Network marketing or MLM
  • Blogging
  • Niche blogging making money from AdSense and similar contextual advertising programs

I know there are many more ways to make money online, but those listed above should be more than good enough to get you started.

2. Drive High-Quality Traffic to Your Offer

Discover How to Make Money Online in 3 Simple StepsJust like there are many ways to make money online, there are also a lot of ways to drive traffic to your money making offer.

Your second step is to choose one (yes, only ONE again) proven, reliable way to drive high-quality traffic to your offer.

Focus on that one traffic method for now. Once you’re making more money from your offer than what it’s costing you to advertise, then you can consider adding other high-quality traffic strategies.

If you’re starting out with a free traffic strategy, then wait until that traffic method is reliably making you money before adding any other strategies into the mix.

Below are some traffic strategies to get you started…

Free Traffic Strategies

  • Forum marketing
  • Search engine optimization
  • Content syndication
  • Ad swaps
  • Guest blogging
  • Blog commenting
  • Twitter Tribes
  • Google Plus communities
  • Content aggregators
  • YouTube marketing

Paid Traffic Strategies

  • Solo advertising
  • Google AdWords
  • Bing PPC ads
  • Facebook ads
  • Your own affiliate program

That should be more than enough to get you started.

Personally, I like using paid advertising since it brings much faster results (good or bad) than free traffic strategies do.

3. Build Your Email List NOW!

Build Your Email List NOW!

“The money is in the list!”

I KNOW you’ve heard that before. If not, you have now ;)

The most important tip I can give you is this…

Build your email list right from the beginning no matter what money making strategy, system or method you choose to pursue.

When you have an email list, you can send traffic on-demand to any offer you have very quickly.

So Let’s Recap…

Now get out there, take action and make some money!

  1. Excellent article, though I would personally take “easy” from the title. Just the times are different today. It was easy to make money online about 10 years ago. Now it is more about hard work, good initial investment and huge presence in organic results and social media.

      Thank you Kaloyan for commenting and I’m glad you liked the article :)

      I didn’t mean to make it seem like making money online itself was easy. What I meant was that the actual *process* was simple.

      Too many people, especially those new to making money online, over complicate things. They jump from one money making strategy to the next and try to use every marketing strategy under the sun to promote them all. They kind of become a “Jack of all trades, master of none.”

      That’s why I wrote this post… to break it down to 3 simple steps which is:

      1. Choose only ONE money making strategy.

      2. Use ONE effective form of traffic generation, only adding other traffic strategies once the offer is consistently making money from the first traffic strategy.

      3. Build an email list in the process, right from the start no matter what money making strategy they choose.

      • No doubt you are right, but sometimes there are external factors that might cause change of niche. I am online marketer since 1999 and due to changes of law and algorithms, I’ve had to close or sell my online business. Though you are right, there are evergreen strategies that have to be followed.

    Great article Kevin. I would like to suggest that you add one more money making strategy to your list and that’s selling used books online. Used books can be found everywhere for only a dollar or two and they can be resold for $10 to $100 and more. It’s easy to get into the business and you can start making respectable money in less than 30 days.

    Choosing one specific money making strategy and mastering it is a good advice. This step ensures that success is attained with ease.

    A lot of marketers miss the mark by applying different methods at once.

    With a specific strategy, it becomes important to master the system and control how conversions are made.

  5. All the best and basic things listed here. To get traffic, paid marketing works fine every time. I used Google Adword’s and it got some great results.

    Traffic is the golden bait for luring in any advertisers and if that traffic is of high quality then it will keep attracting advertisers (money).

    Email list always guarantee confirmed visitors and if one is a great affiliate then many email subscribers will convert much better. One definitely needs to have a strategy in mind, work for it and stay with it for long.

    Great article.

    There are many ways to make money online, sell an item online at Amazon and Ebay, freelancing, outsourcing, promote affiliate products, uploading and sharing videos and so much more. So many options to choose from.

    The second number is important; you don’t have to waste hundreds of dimes just to earn traffic. You can drive traffic using the lists under “Free Traffic Strategies”.

    Neil Patel, one of the best marketer/blogger I have ever known used social media websites to earn traffic and promote his product.

    So I guess, quality and your content voice are two important things to achieve your dream traffic.

      You’re right Metz… there are SOOOOO many ways to make money online. That’s part of the problem for people just getting started and even for veterans at making money online. There are so many ways to make money that it’s sometimes difficult for people to focus on one method and earn money from that before adding additional income streams.

    GREAT POST. Not only described here about only 3 steps of making money online , You have also explained all these steps very carefully which I loved to read. I think everone should follow these steps else they might fell down the mountain of online earning. Hey! Watch your Step, mate.

  8. Ann07 says:

    As for my own opinion, making money online is both a simple and tough activity. It is a simple activity because you can make money online in just few step procedures. While I can say that it is also a tough activity because making money online requires you to exert much more effort, time and hard work.

    These three steps shared above are helpful and valuable. I must say that with these thoughts given, making money online made simpler.

    Thanks for the post! :)


    • Kevin Ocasio says:

      Making money online isn’t necessarily “easy,” but the actual process I feel is pretty simple and really can be broken down into the 3 steps I outlined in this post.

      Glad you liked it and thank you for commenting Ann :)
