When I started to try make money on the Internet I naturally made many mistakes. I wish I could turn back the clock and start again but sadly I can’t. At least you can learn from my mistakes and get a head start.
Making money online is not actually that hard if you follow some simple steps but the trouble is you get so bombarded with information that you end up believing there is a magical formula out there just waiting to be discovered if you read enough blogs or subscribe to lots of newsletters. the lesson – just stick to one formula and follow it until you are successful, don’t be distracted.
The worst mistake I made was to not understand keyword research. I wrote articles but did not focus on any topic, so search engines such as Google didn’t ever put my articles near the top of the search engine results. The articles were good and certainly useful but nobody found them so that was just a waste of time.
When you build your websites that at the end of the day are there to make money concentrate your efforts on one topic or area of interest to you – this is known as niches. By focusing on a niche rather than an area that is very broad, you are far more likely for the search engines to see you as an expert in that area – result – your articles will appear near or maybe even at the top of the results.
The next mistake I made was to choose articles written about a certain keyword that was never going to generate any revenue. For example if you are top of Google for the keywords free books then if you sell books you are probably going to find that this keyword is next to useless because your audience will not be interested in your product or service.
Instead if you targeted the keyword buy Stephen King books then you are likely to sell a lot of Stephen King books. So built a website around words that if you do get ranked, you find they are valuable and money-making keywords.
No matter at what level you are at you can always improve. I had been making money for three years before I joined the Niche profit classroom which accelerated my Internet earnings by giving me a clear step-by-step approach based around building niche websites which provide useful information and sell e books to people who enjoy those niches. I’m selling e books on topics such as Chinchilla care and Ferrets.
