Finding the Right Money Making Opportunity

You’ve decided you are sick and tired of the daily grind of working for someone else and want to work from home. Now though, you are faced with the realization of how to begin. You do a search on Google looking for business opportunities, so you refine your search to “work at home” and come up with over 20 million results. You become overwhelmed by the number and wonder how to decide what will work.

So how do you decide which of these work at money making opportunities you will choose? When you feel you have found one that looks to be a promising system your next step is to do some investigation. First you want to look at the company that is behind the opportunity, check to see if the site has contact information. If it doesn’t have contact information leave and go onto the next. If it have contact information call them or email them and ask questions, see what kind of response you get and if they seem sincere. Check to see if there are any negative feed back by doing a search of the name. It also is a good idea to do a search for the owner of the company. From there you are going to have to use your own judgment.

I have noticed over time that one of the biggest downfall of work at home sites is their lack of teaching techniques for generating traffic to the site. You find a site which says 95% of the work is done for you, problem is their 5% consists of marketing the program.

Look for programs that offer a free report that outlines what the program offers it’s members. You should be looking for a program that has all the ingredients needed to be a successful work from home program for anyone at any marketing level of expertise. It should show you and explains the resources they offer that will help you succeed. Another thing very important to your success is being able to name brand yourself with your own independent website under your own domain name. With your own independent website you are establishing your own presence on the internet with a direct connection to you versus a replicated website which is the same as all the others in the system which establishes the companies presence not yours. Having your own website also means you collect all the leads for your list not the companies.

If you do find a company that has all the tools to help you succeed with the exception of using your own domain name and only offers a replicated website I would suggest making a squeeze page that takes visitors to the replicated website. This way with the addition of an autoresponder you are capturing your own leads, which is essential for your future success.

There are programs on the internet that will work, but remember it takes effort on your part to make any of them to work. Don’t be taken in by those who claim you will get your first commission tomorrow. Just remember investigate each opportunity, find one with the all tools needed to succeed and put forth the effort to make it work.

Money Making Websites – How You Can Make Money With Your Website

You can find ads for money making websites all over the internet. However, just because you have a website that in no way guarantees you an income. So many marketers ask the question, “How can I make money with my website?” It’s a good question and this article will give you some good answers to help you along.

Get Leads

This is no secret. If you are going to be successful in selling anything, you’ll need some qualified leads. These leads are prospects that have raised their hand and basically told you they would like more information about your company or your offer. In order to collect these leads you’ll need an auto responder on your website. You’ll also need something of value to offer them in exchange for their email and name. Pretty straight forward. You’ll find that all online marketers do this.

Sell Quality Products To Your List (Leads)

Once you have leads in your sales funnel, you’ll develop a strong relationship with your list (leads). Communicate with them regularly (at least once a week) via email and offer them a lot of free help. Then, once you have developed a relationship with your list, offer them a product you are selling. It does not have to be your own product, you can be an affiliate for a product as well, and that works great.

Put Affiliate Links In Your Free Report

When you offer a special report to your visitors on your website, make sure you can put some links in the special report so if they click the link and buy, you’ll receive a commission. That way, even if they never come back to your site, but they have opted in for the free report, you can still make a sale.

Traffic, Traffic, Traffic

Remember, selling is a numbers game. Good money making websites usually have a lot of visitors each day. So don’t be afraid to invest some time and money in some quality web traffic. Without quality web traffic the odds are stacked against you. You want as many eyeballs on your site a possible.

How to Write Money-Making How-To Reports

This is the “real” Money Maker in the Mail Order business the basic “How To” Report. It’s something anyone can produce, and with all the proper ingredients at the right time, you can become independently wealthy! The hard part, of course, is getting all the proper ingredients at the right time.

Your basic “Money Making report” is usually two pages in length, sells for $3, and outlines instructions, details, or a “How-To Method” for solving a problem: making more money, saving money, attaining greater happiness, or fulfilling an ambition or desire. An example of a successful moneymaking report had to do with the many different ways to prepare and serve hamburger. Simple, basic, information is what we’re talking about.

Anyone can write a saleable report on any subject – providing he or she has knowledge of that subject through personal experience, research, or both. A lot of women write successful money-making reports based upon better ways of solving household problems. And a lot of men write successful money-making reports on how to get greater pleasure from leisure time activities such as fishing, woodworking or other hobbies. The list of subjects one can write about is endless, and reports on how to make more money easier and faster are no more limited to male authors than expertise in cooking is limited to female authors.

Writing your report is easy and quite simple. However, it does take longer, and requires more sweat, blood and anguish for some people to produce a “finished” product than it does others, even if they are equally intelligent and knowledgeable.

The best advice anyone can give you on how to write a money-making report is to advise you to write as though you were talking to someone – as though you were instructing your next door neighbor via the telephone on the subject at hand. I use the word telephone here to point out that regardless of how much you wave your arms, point your finger, or even draw pictures, you aren’t getting the message across, and your neighbor won’t “see” what you’re talking about until you tell him in the kind of language he can understand. Write in a style similar to the book reports you used to give when you were in the middle school. Do you remember the “theme papers” you used to have to research, outline and write for term finals? You got a good grade if you presented your material in a straightforward style, had the facts, and didn’t pad out your paper.

Be factual, and be clear. Know your reader and use the kind of language he expects you to use. This does not mean that you should drop to the level of military barracks talk or that you should elevate yourself to the level of a pseudo Rhodes Scholar. It just means that in writing the basic “How-To” report, you should bear in mind that these reports serve as personal one-to-one consultations between you and your reader, and that your language should establish a rapport he can feel.

Outline what you want to say before you write it. This helps; tremendously. Many writers “think” as they’re typing or writing what they want to say, myself included. Everything flows smoother, with a lot less rewrite involved, and the finished product is always much better when you’ve outlined what you want to say before you start.

When doing business by mail, these Money-Making “How-To” reports we’ve been talking about are known by many names: folio, booklet, pamphlet, guide, or even Personal Success Plan. In reality, these reports are written guidelines that give the reader more information on a subject he wants to know more about.

Money Making reports have been, and can still be written to show other people how to start, develop, enjoy or expand a hobby; how to learn and develop new or greater abilities; how to start, develop and operate a new business, or even expand a current one; how to develop and prepare for a new career; how to make more money; how to save money, better one’s standard of living and have more time for leisure; how to solve personal problems and enjoy life more; how to attain success in any endeavor.

You’ll find that the better selling reports are well researched, authoritative, factual and helpful to the reader in attaining his or her goals. Your report can be put together and sold as anything from a two-page typewritten paper to a multipage typeset and professionally bound book. an important point to remember here is that the people who are going to buy your report are going to be interested in the information it contains – not how long it took you to put it together, the reason you wrote it, or the number of pages you’ve written – so long as it contains the information he or she wants.

Picking a subject to write about – one that has sales appeal and that will sell well for you – is not as hard as it sounds. The best rule to follow is to write only about something you already know a great deal about. With this advice in mind, it will follow that your best writing will be about those subjects that particularly interest you. And remember, the more you are involved or interested in the subject, the easier it will be for you to write about that subject in a manner that will hold your reader’s interest. Your knowledge and enthusiasm will show through – causing your reader to overlook any technical writing weaknesses.

How do you determine the subject that’s best for you to use for your first report? Channel your thinking along these lines: If you love to fish, you could probably put together a money-making report on “How To Catch The Big Ones”. If you love to sew, you could probably write a report on “Tips for Beautiful Sewing”. If you have experience in advertising, you could write a report on “How To Write An Ad For Best Results”; experience in printing, a report on “How to Prepare Copy and Layout for Best Printing Results”; experience in business, a report on “Better Business Operating Techniques”. It’s worth repeating: Whatever you write about, make it something you know about, and are especially interested in.

Once you’ve decided on the subject you’re going to write about, the next step is thorough research. Visit your public library and “bone up” on your subject. Read as much about it as you can find – newspapers, magazines, books – everything! Start collecting clippings, talk to your neighbors, your friends and relatives, and take notes on all information you gather from reading and personal discussion.

When you’ve spent a good six weeks intensively researching your subject, gathering notes and discussing it as often as you can with as many different people as possible, you should be ready for the next step – the sorting, compiling and assembly of your notes. Simply read through all the notes and clippings you have accumulated, discarding those that are repetitious, and organizing those you’re going to use according to your “subject coverage” outline. Don’t let the outline part of your project become an obstacle. An outline is simply listing the order in which you want to write about or discuss each aspect of your subject.

Everything that’s written should have a natural beginning, a body and an ending. When you outline your subject, and your “subject coverage”, which can be likened to a table of contents, you’ll find it easier to say what you want to say. You’ll be ABLE to say everything you want to say. You won’t have to worry about forgetting or leaving out an important point you want to make. The coverage of your subject will be more complete, and your writing will be much smoother.

Once you’ve completed your research, organized your notes, and have your “subject coverage” outline set, you’re ready to write the money-making report that just might make you rich! Start writing, and write as though you were talking to someone, because writing, after everything has been analyzed, taken apart, studied, improved upon, and put back together, is still nothing more or less than a written conversation between two people. Write your how-to report as though you were instructing a high school graduate in how to do something his first day on the job.

It makes no difference whether you write it all out longhand or pound away at a keyboard. Just get it all written! Once you’ve got your material organized, start writing and don’t stop until you’re finished! When you have finished, be proud of yourself! Take a break, go out to dinner, enjoy a night on the town! In other words, put this first draft of your report aside for a few days and allow your brain, your body, and your creative juices to rejuvenate themselves.

After a couple of days off, take up your report and go through it with a sharp pencil, just as you imagine an editor would do. Strike out, rewrite and polish each paragraph for clarity, accuracy and flow. This is the time to make sure that what you’ve written is easy to read, easy to understand, and each sentence follows the one before it just as surely as spring follows winter. The smoother the conversation or the writing of your report flows, the easier it’ll be to read, and the easier it is to read, the more copies you will sell.

Now you have a money-making report that has the potential of making a great deal of money for you. If you are a good typist, go ahead and type it out in finished form. If you’re not a typist, you can have it typed by someone who is, or even have it typeset for a small fee.
