Okay, so let’s get intothe video. The internet is the great equalizer. Inbusiness, specifically it has leveledthe playing field and anyone can start amoneymaking online business, at leastanyone with a computer. But here’s thething, virtually no technical experienceis needed. Today there are plenty oftools you can use to build an onlinebusiness that makes the technical workso much easier than it was in the past. And you can also live anywhere you want. You can set your own schedule and workas little or as much as you wantdepending on how fast or how big youwant your business to grow. No businessor marketing experience is neededeither. It is truly a democratic worldwe live in now for entrepreneurship, solet’sget straight into it. The first thingyou can do is drop shipping. Now thebasic idea behind an online dropshipping business is that as a smallbusiness owner, you’re not going to haveto maintain inventory, you’re not goingto handle the fulfillment or thecustomer service and this eliminates thefinancial cost and the risk of having tohave a warehouse full of products thatmay or may not sell and the hassle ofhaving to deal with the shipping and thelogistics to send the orders out allover the country or the world. In fact,you don’t have to manufacture or storeany products at all. The only thing youhave to focus on in a drop shippingbusiness is marketing and advertising tofind the customers and make the sales. Once the sale is made, the rest ishandled by other people and your onlycost is the expense of marketing andadvertising to acquire a new customer. Then once that’s done, you’ll work witha company that specializes in dropshipping. So here’s how this works. Youlist products for sale on your websiteor on a third party platform like Amazonor with Shopify. And then when one ofyour customers makes a purchase, youpurchase the product from the thirdparty company, which is the dropshipper. It’s usually the manufactureror maybe a wholesaler for a lower pricethan what you sold it for. And thisprocess is as simpleas forwarding the order from yourcustomer, which is a process that can beautomated and therefore you have no riskhere because you’re not buying anyinventory before you’ve already sold it. The sale is already been made and you’vealready locked in your profit. And sothen your drop shipper will physicallysend the product to the customer easyenough, right? It is, and the good newsis that you can learn the marketingskills really easily. The next way tobuild a business online is calledaffiliate marketing and affiliatemarketing is one of my near and dearpassions. In fact, when I was completelybroke all the way back in 2008 I wentfrom having a huge debt of almost$500,000 to being able to pay off allthat debt and get started on the road togenerating a lot of income within justan 18 month period. And affiliatemarketing is somewhat similar to dropshipping, but it has some keydifferences. So with this online model,you don’t have to maintain an inventoryof your own products just like with dropshipping and you don’t have to worryabout shipping products to customers. Also just like drop shipping. Basicallyyou just pick a profitable niche foryour online business and then you findan affiliate partner who has productsavailable in that niche. And some of themost popular affiliate sites are siteslike clickbank. com amazon. com which I’msure you’ve heard of, but youmight not realize that every one oftheir products, just about you can alsoresell as an affiliate and you can alsocheck out CJ affiliate by conversant,which used to be called a commissionjunction. Between these sites. Theyoffer just about any digital informationproducts like an ebook, audio files,video files, courses, you name it, orphysical products. Virtually anythingyou can think of and many big namecompanies, companies like Walmart, homeDepot, target best buy, they run theiraffiliate programs through these thirdparty affiliate sites so you can reallybecome an affiliate for almost anything. In fact, most people don’t realize thatover 80% of the brands online haveaffiliate programs and with affiliatemarketing you can offer these productsfor sale, for example, on your blog oreven on your own eCommerce website, andeach product has a unique link thattracks back to your account with youraffiliate partner. And that way when aprospect clicks on the link, they’retaken to your partner’s shopping cart tocheck out. Then when they buy thatpurchase is recorded and you receive acommission. It’s basically like gettingpaid for referrals and the commissionamounts vary depending on the affiliatepartner, but it’s generally anywherefrom 5% to 25% or with digital products,sometimes as much as 50% or more. And asyou can see with this model, there’svery little risk on your part andvirtually no investment required either. Just like withdrop shipping, your only costs will bethe marketing and the advertising todrive traffic and generate the sale. Nowthe key difference between this and dropshipping is that this business model iseven more hands off. All you have to dois provide link for the customer toclick on and the merchant handleseverything else. Billing, orderfulfillment, customer service, customersupport, backend upsells, down sellseverything. You don’t have to doanything but provide the link. You justhandle the marketing to get theprospects and you can use social media,you can use email marketing, you can useblogging, you can make videos even righthere on YouTube, whatever method youchoose, but then once somebody clicksthe affiliate link, it’s completely outof your hands. And the third onlinebusiness is blogging. And this is agreat one. Obviously if you like towrite or you have a specific expertiseor passion for a subject and you’reready to use that to start making money. So with a service like blogger or thefree installation of something likeWordPress, you can set up your blogcompletely free. You can create your ownwebsite and get your own hosting. Hosting is very inexpensive andgenerally that’s the route that Irecommend. Frankly, a lot of freeblogging sites have restrictions and youdon’t have total control over what youcan say or do, including how you canmake money or what types of advertisingyoucan offer or or do for yourself. Now,you may think that blogging is all aboutwriting and certainly it can be ifthat’s what you want to do. But writtenblog posts are just the start. You canpost photos, you can post videos, youcan post links to other sites. You caneven repost what they call curationcuration, where you curate otherarticles, news items, current events,anything you want to even just repostcounts. Basically anything is fair gameas long as it relates to your niche. Thekey is that you want to post as muchoriginal content as possible that isuseful to your target audience and youwant to post on a regular basis. That isthe best way to get ranked in the searchengines where you get free traffic andalso to get your audience to be comingback for more and to consistently takeaction when they do. What sort ofcontent should you provide? Well,anything that is engaging to yourprospect, so that means how to topics. Top 10 lists, commentary on trendsinside your niche, tips and tricks,articles like shortcuts and hacks. Basically, you just need to provideuseful content and there’s no shortageof ideas for your blog and with a blog. You make money in a variety of ways. Sohave you ever been to a website and seenan ad on it? Well, chances are it was anad being run through definitelythrough a display advertising networkand probably the Google advertisingnetwork. These are called pay per clickads that appear on your blog or on otherpeople’s blogs and every time somebodyclicks on one of those ads, which shouldtheoretically be about a subject relatedto your niche, you’re going to make afew cents or more and it’s just a smallamount each time, but it adds up andthis is completely automated, totallyhands-free income. You just have to geta code from Google, place it on yourwebsite and the ads will automaticallyappear on your blog and they’ll evenautomatically be relevant to whateveryour blog is about. Google only showsads that are relevant to your blog, soit’s a great experience for yourvisitors. They’re not, if they’re comingto read about fashion, they’re not beingshown ads about hunting and fishing andthis way it maximizes the number ofclicks you get, which means more income. You can also work with blog ad networksthat go beyond Google. These are siteslike blog ads and actually run bannerads on your blog and these are similarto the Google ads or what’s calledGoogle AdSense. You just place the codeonce on your website and when yourvisitors click on the ads, you get paidand in addition to the banner ads, youcan also even run video ads on yourwebsite. Now, in many cases you can makemore money with blog ad networks,but they tend to only work with blogsthat are getting tens of thousands ofvisitors a month as opposed to Googleads where you can start right awayregardless of how much traffic you get. Okay. Now let’s talk about affiliatemarketing. On your blog, you alreadyknow about affiliate marketing where youinclude links to products that you’repromoting as an affiliate and then everytime somebody buys the product you get acommission. But with a blog you canintegrate advertising with content whichmakes it more likely to get the sale. For example, you could do a productreview which is really useful content,but then underneath the review youinclude a link to buy the product withan affiliate link. Here are a fewsuccessful blogging tips to make surepeople can find your blog and that theywill keep coming back when they do. Nowthis is key to building a following andmaking your blog into a profitableventure. First, you need to provideuseful content in an engaging way. Second, you have to post content on aregular basis and third, you have to begenuine. It’s really important withblogging that it feels like an actualinteresting real life person is creatingthe content and the fourth onlinebusiness model is online video. Now haveyou watched a YouTube video lately?Trick question. Obviously, of course youhave. This is one of the world’s mostpopular websites with more than 1billion users watchinghundreds of millions of hours of video,hundreds of millions of hours everysingle day, and it is not all cats doingfunny things and skateboard tricks andice bucket challenges. You can leverageYouTubes reach, frankly just as I haveto make money online talking aboutalmost anything and no, you’re nottrying to create a viral video, althoughcertainly if it does go viral and getseen by millions of people, that’s notso bad. But instead what you’re reallyfocused on is following a provenstrategy for maximizing views ofmultiple videos on a regular basis. Andyou do this by creating useful content,something engaging that people want towatch and it works across many, manydifferent niches. It could be a how tovideo, kind of like a lot of miner or atalking head video, which is what youcall this, but anything on a topic ofinterest for the people in your niche. It is like impossible to run out ofideas for YouTube channels and YouTubecontent. Truly the sky’s the limit andthe way you make money with that is withad revenue among other things. Now yourfirst step is to create a YouTubeaccount and start uploading videos. Thenyou want to enable monetization on theYouTube settings inside your channel,and basically this gives Google thegreen light, and by the way, Google ownsYouTube. If you don’t know that thisgives Google the green light to startincluding short AdSense videos withinyour videos. Theyhave them sometimes at the beginning,sometimes in the middle and sometimes atthe end. And if you watch a lot ofYouTube videos, you’ve probably seenthose. You might’ve even seen one ofthose right here on this video. And whenviewers click on those ads, you getpaid. And another opportunity to makemoney with a YouTube channel is throughpaid sponsorships. Once you build alarge enough following, then companieswill actually pay you to promote ormention their products and services inyour videos. Here are some tips tocreate professional looking videos. Nowyou can use your smartphone or just asimple video camera, but make sure thelighting is good so that everything inyour video is clear and easy to see. Secondly, make sure the audio is clear. You don’t want the air conditioningrunning in the background. You don’twant construction noise. 51% of video isa good audio. It’s kind of an importantthing to remember. People will toleratekind of bad video quality. They won’ttolerate that audio quality. Trust me,I’ve learned this the hard way. Next youwant to use simple editing software likeI movie to put titles at the beginningof the video and to edit out any flubsor excessive clearing of the throat orif you sneeze, usually when you’re justgetting started on video, there’s goingto be some mistakes and it is worth itto go back and cut those out andabove all, just remember your videos canbe really, really simple. Take it fromme. They don’t have to be slick. Justprovide useful content and be engagingand interesting and by the way, it doeshelp to try to be funny, which Istruggle with, but I really do try andto extend the reach of your videos, youcan actually repost them on yourFacebook business page. I do this. Everysingle one of my YouTube videos alsogets posted on Facebook. You can alsopost them on Twitter, put them on yourblog, put them on any other socialchannels. Just let people know you’re inthe video business now and on all thoseother social channels. Be invitingpeople to come subscribe to your YouTubechannel. Now let’s talk about putting itall together. The trick with any onlinebusiness is to make sure that first ofall, you’re in a profitable nichemarket. So before you start makingvideos, before you start blogging,before you start doing any of this work,make sure you’ve picked a niche wherethere’s actually products that sell andthere’s, there’s people that shop andthere’s money to be made. So keep an eyeon trends. Check out the bestsellerlists on sites like Amazon and considerwhat people are talking about on socialmedia on one thing to keep in mind isyou don’t have to restrict yourself tojust one of these e-commerceopportunities. A lot of themactually work together. So start withsomething, pick one and start and justget it going. And then add new revenuestreams as you’re able, that’ll growyour income and ensure that you havesomething to fall back on in case onebusiness starts going South.
