I took a break from the “Making Money Online” Series. But, I was reminded last week by readers that it’s time to get back to it! The purpose of this post is to give new would-be online marketers an overview of some of the most important things they should consider prior to coming online; and to introduce the best straightforward newbie guide available today.  So, before we move forward, let’s do a brief review of what’s been covered so far.

What is your site telling you?

After you have set up your blog (I will be giving you specifics in another post should you need guidance on this subject), it will be important that you understand how to measure the results of your new online presence, popularity, and effective marketing techniques.  You have laid the foundation, now what?  The next step will be to set up your marketing and let the world know what you have to offer.  There are many types and ways to market your products and services.  If you are a network marketer or direct sales business, typically you will receive ideas and strategies from your upline or sponsors.  After you have duplicated their methods, you then need to track how effective your marketing really is.

Finding the Right Opportunity for You is Exciting!

"Yes, this works for ME!"

My last blog post was about setting up an online business, expressing your passion, and making the decision to make money online. Just about every type of industry you can think of that might interest you is represented by some type of sales opportunity.

Here’s the problem as I see it. You need money. You have been downsized, laid off, fired, or unemployed. Maybe you just need extra money each month to pay the bills and keep a roof over your head… and oh, yeah, eat. Then someone approaches you with the idea that you ought to try an online business. It might be top tier direct sales, regular direct sales, MLM or network marketing, affiliate marketing, article writing, or something along these lines. Maybe they even suggest doing a bit of everything simultaneously.

A short time ago, I did a post about “Leave Corporate America… for Good!”.  I know that change can be scary, but it can also be a refreshing, new experience.  I still find even though it makes sense to some people to transition to an online business, they need a little coaxing to get up off their butt and take action! Sometimes the reason they haven’t done it yet is because they just don’t know what to do to make that happen.  That’s what I’m here for!  Just like I had people steer me in the right direction, I’ll do the same for you!

Valuable Content Brings Success

In the first part of this topic, Valuable Content is The #1 Key to Online Success, I presented you with information about creating value for your blog readers and monetizing your blog.  This lead to further details about affiliate marketing.  I gave some pretty well-defined guidelines on how to choose your programs or networks wisely.  If you haven’t read that post but are interested in this topic, I suggest you take a look at it to get up to speed — then come back here. In this post, I wanted to cover the appropriate way to market your chosen programs online.  Proper netiquette, if you will.
