In today’s post, we’ll review the Top 10 Internet Marketing Strategies used by online entrepreneurs.
We’ll also give our top recommendations to get started.
Most people would like to live the internet marketer’s lifestyle, but they have absolutely no idea where to start.
Considering the fact that there are so many strategies out there, it can be quite confusing to figure out what to focus on.
Not to mention all the scams and techniques recommended by self-proclaimed gurus that flat out don’t work.
Who to Trust? What Works? Where to Begin?
These are the main questions beginners ask when looking to earn online.
And that’s why today we’ll take a look at the top 10 internet marketing strategies used today.
Given the time, these strategies work.
And these aren’t seasonal strategies that can only be used once.
These are business models people have been using for years (and will continue to use them as well).
In other words, they’re evergreen strategies; strategies that will work forever.
Without further delay, let’s dive in.
The Top 10 Internet Marketing Strategies:
Keep in mind, these strategies are not in any particular order, some are more effective than others, but each one works.
1. Email Marketing With Freebies and Email Sequences:
This strategy has been around for a long time, and it still works. When looking to a build a list, this is the technique most people start out with. It’s simple.
Basically, we offer a freebie in exchange for an email address.
The freebie can be an eBook or any other type of digital download or offer that might interest people.
Here’s an example we use at LearnToGrowWealthOnline.com
It contains all the secrets we use to rank content quickly and for free. Highly Recommended 😉
Then, we use an email management service, such as Aweber, to send a series of emails when a person subscribes.
Include affiliate links in some of the emails, and you can easily make some sales.
It’s also an excellent way to promote your own services or products.
Once you have a list, lots of opportunities to earn will open up to you. Some people make a full-time business offering solo-ads for example.
It can be quite profitable.
I think every website should have at least some list-building features in place. It makes a huge difference.
Please feel free to read out guide on how to build an email list using simple strategies.
2. Launching Products or Courses in Affiliate Marketplaces:
This technique is most commonly found on internet marketing forums or affiliate communities.
The idea is to make an informational product, build hype for it, collect affiliates, and launch.
If done correctly, this strategy can be extremely lucrative.
But it’s also the same strategy scammers use on a monthly basis.
Did you ever wonder why some scams disappear and another – identical – ones takes their place?
Creating fast courses, launching them, and repeating the process, is a method a lot of marketers use to earn online.
The only problem is the sales tend to die down after launch.
So most product creators will make another similar product and launch again.
Still, if you like to write and teach people, this could be the right strategy for you.
Not to mention the fact that affiliates will drive most of your sales anyways.
You can read our review of ClickBank University to see if this is the avenue for you online business needs.
3. Video Marketing on YouTube:
YouTube has a program for content creators that’s now hooked up to Google’s ad-sense.
So you can earn whenever an ad on your video is clicked.
It’s possible to make a full-time income from YouTube, but it takes time.
In most cases, the most popular YouTube videos are not in the make money online niche, but rather viral funny videos.
Nevertheless, I consider people making money on YouTube as marketers, regardless of their niche.
Passionate about something? Consider making videos about it. Creating videos can be a lot of fun and as your channels grows you will earn more and more.
And there’s always a chance that a video will go viral, bringing in even more cash.
In short, that’s an idea to look into.
Don’t fall for the scams that promise you’ll be a millionaire from YouTube in a matter of months. It takes years to build up an audience.
That might seem like a long time, but if you enjoy the process, time will fly!
Feel free to check out this post for more information on making money with YouTube.
4. Offer an Online Service:
We mentioned this in this previous article, and it’s still relevant.
The problem is there are so many services you can offer.
Still, there are online businesses out there that make hundreds of thousands dollars a month from a simple – quality – service.
Take sometime to think about what you can offer people.
Opening a digital marketing agency could be one idea.
Search engine optimization services are also in high-demand as there are so many website owners looking to improve their ranks.
This can become a seriously lucrative career. Local SEO (managing local business websites) has an income potential into the 30K – 50K/month range and can get to an auto-pilot point eventually.
Sales skills for this avenue of online business are a must.
You can turn this idea into an entire online business teaching something you just learned.
Do your best to stick to white-hat techniques and you shouldn’t have a problem finding clients.
Even something as simple as writing articles can work.
I recommend offering a service because it’s one way to earn fast cash while you wait for your other projects to bring in cash.
Just take a moment to think about what people need.
Brainstorm ideas and start working on them. You’ll be surprised at what you discover.
Some million dollar business ideas might be on that paper.
5. Build an Authority Website:
An authority website dominates a specific niche. This is one of my favorite strategies because there are a lot of opportunities to earn from an authority site.
Granted, building one does require a lot of time, but I believe it’s worth it. If you can properly organize content creation, and stick to a regular posting schedule, the traffic will start to flow in.
You can also promote each article on social media and reach out to other bloggers for collaboration and back-links.
If you just started working on your website, it can be difficult to imagine your website becoming an authority one day.
But it can happen. It has happened. It will happen if you work on it.
One thing I love about authority websites is that you can target broad topics related to your niche.
If you plan to make an authority website, it’s best to start with that goal in mind.
Tell yourself, “This website will be an authority” and work on it.
Take it a day at a time.
You can do it. Hit the image below to read more about this subject.
6. Affiliate Marketing Through a Niche Website:
This strategy expands a bit on the previous section. You can build authoritative niche websites, or you can build smaller niche sites based on a single product.
It’s only limited to your imagination. You can easily have a few niche sites that’s are easy to rank that can bring in faster commissions and let you move on to other online projects.
You can monetize an authority website in many different ways.
But creating a website for the sole purpose of affiliate marketing is another strategy to earn online.
To do this, we’ll need to find a niche and a main product to promote an affiliate.
Then we can write a review for the product and link back to that review from every article we write.
Wondering what category this website, Learn To Grow Wealth Online, falls into?
Well it’s this one!
Smaller niche affiliate sites can be really profitable and you can always scale-up by creating more in other niches.
Products reviews are one type of content that are excellent for affiliate websites.
A lot of people also create Amazon affiliate websites, which can also be quite profitable.
In most cases, these are smaller websites with only a few pages of content, followed by reviews to target people within a specific buying phase of their research.
This is also a great idea, and one that can get pretty passive once established.
7. Write an eBook:
You’ll be surprised how much cash small-time websites earn through their books.
I don’t recommend writing a book right off the bat.
It’s better to build up an audience first.
Establish yourself as an authority and more people will buy the book.
And when you write one; you can write more. Click here to learn more about writing your own ebook.
You can launch your book on an affiliate marketing platform such as Clickbank or JVZoo or even Amazon.
You’ll have to pay a fee, but if affiliates start to promote the book, that’s more sales in your account.
Selling a simple eBook on your site can bring in a lot of cash.
It’s definitely worth looking into.
Books also make you seem more legitimate, and you can build up a reputation as an author.
Let’s not forget that books also provide affiliate marketing opportunities!
8. Build an e-commerce Website
E-commerce websites are dedicated to selling specific physical products.
These types of websites can bring in a lot of cash.
But they’re also quite challenging because you have to deal with more issues such as sourcing and shipping items.
Finding a cheap source for the products you want to sale and handling all the shipping complications can be a hassle.
Nevertheless, it can still be done.
Prior to creating an e-commerce site, extensive research is required.
It’s also recommended to start small.
Order a small amount from your supplier and see if you can sell it before you order more.
A common mistake new e-commerce businessmen make is ordering too much product. I’ll admit, I did it on my second importation order.
You don’t want to have a bunch of stuff sitting around collecting dust.
Make sure there’s a demand before you invest. It will save you a lot of time and stress.
9. Utilize Seller Platforms:
The most popular being eBay.
Yes, eBay businesses are still popular and you can still make one.
The same tips mentioned in the previous section apply here; don’t order more than you can sell.
But eBay is just one of the platforms you can use.
If this is more your style, read our recommended training , Amazing Selling Machine, read our review to see how their students are making incredible profits.
If you offer a service, there are platforms where you can advertise your services, such as Fiverr, and many others.
Platforms like UpWork are perfect for freelancers who want to make quick cash and find clients.
Some of those clients can turn into life-long clients.
The problem is a lot of these freelance platforms don’t pay well or the competition is far too fierce, making it difficult to find work.
Still worth a shot.
Some freelancers earn a full-time income from these sites.
Here’s My Top Recommended Training >>
10. Create an Online Platform:
In other words, create an online platform that automates or makes a complicated process simpler.
These are incredibly popular and can be extremely profitable too.
Consider charging a monthly fee for your service.
One example would be Aweber, a simple platform where you can manage and send automated emails. Aweber has seen explosive growth because so many people recommend their services.
Now it’s the number one email management company in the world. If you can create something similar, there’s no telling what could happen.
Of course, these types of sites require a lot of coding knowledge. And if you don’t have that knowledge you’ll need to hire coders.
Another example would be Netflix, a simple online streaming service that has seen explosive growth.
If you create a useful platform that delivers value, there will be plenty of people willing to pay for it.
It’s more difficult, but worth a look.
Our Recommended Internet Marketing Choice:
Out of all these good choices, one takes the cake. And that’s building an authority niche website.
But it’s easy to tell someone to build an authority website. It’s also easy to list the advantages of being the owner an authority website.
No stress. Live anywhere. No hassling bosses for days off.
It sounds nice. But most people don’t work towards their goal because they are easily distracted or overwhelmed.
It’s also difficult to convince your friends, family-members, or spouses to believe in your goal.
Most people will roll their eyes when you say you want to earn cash online.
It’s difficult to find support.
I know it was difficult for me.
That’s when I came across a really cool community of online business owners working together to reach their goals.
And when I discovered it’s not just a community of people but an entire online business training course, I never left.
This course will take you by the hand and show you exactly how to build an authority website.
Or if you want more information.

Enjoy the article? Share it with your friends! I will always appreciate it.
Thanks for taking the time to read this article about the top 10 internet marketing strategies.
Just remember, anything is possible. Believe in your dream.
Until next time!
Todd, I like the idea of building an email list by giving away freebies like ebooks. I’ve tried to write an ebook before, but got overwhelmed by the task. Do you recommend I write my own ebook, or do you know of a source of quality ebooks I can use as freebies? Thanks for your help.
I believe you should write your own or have a professional writer write one for you based on whatever topic you want to write about.
I felt overwhelmed for my first book and didn’t know where to start. Then I just took a couple posts that were about how I bring in organic/free traffic and ended up creating a guide to posting content to rank quickly.
I had my writer put the book together, basic formatting, and then promote it through your content and site.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for your help. I’ll give it a go!
What a great post with such excellent ideas for marketing your online business. I have recently started up a YouTube channel.
The demographic of my audience are frequently found on YouTube and I find that people take much more interest in my videos than in my actual articles.
My YouTube channel seems to be growing at a much quicker rate than my website (considering how new it is!)
Yeah Hannah, content is either written or video and you can use the same white hat seo techniques with written content in your YouTube videos.
YouTube has an immense power an something that every marketer should consider.
I’m kind of lazy these days, I used to do videos with my posts and it helps rankings, now it’s just a matter of finding time.
Thanks for your feedback.
In your article, you talk about niche sites. How do you really know which ones will be lucrative? Are there some that receive more traffic then others? There is so much out there on the web, to pick something that is really going to work seems like it might be like finding a needle in a haystack at times. Are there ways to find “hot topics” so that niche can be successful?
Yes Lisa, any niche can be broken into so to speak. It’s all about keyword research and finding out if there is enough of a niche audience to go with that niche.
The more detailed the niche, the easier it is to rank for. You can even build a niche site off of one single product.
For keyword research, start here.
I am very new at online marketing, so any extra information or strategies, that I can use is very good for me to stumble upon.
I personally am working on this with a positive niche, and am still just starting my site, so any advice I can get is appreciated.
Thank you for providing me with these 10 strategies, I’ll be sure to incorporate them in my work 🙂
I’ve got two awesome suggestions for you, sign up for our Free Internet Marketing Training eCourse and get our Free Targeted Traffic eBook at the same time.
This will give you the mentality and tools you need to know to give you the best chance of success online.
Glad you enjoyed our top ten internet marketing strategies post.
Amit Misal says
Just read about top ten internet marketing strategies and I found it helpful.
I myself am developing an authority site in the Yoga niche with the help of one of your recommended programs, the Wealthy Affiliate Platform.
I am amazed to see the other options available in online marketing I think I can use them too in developing my authority site.Thanks for the helpful information.
Thanks for the feedback Amit. There’s always extra things you can buy, but when it comes down to it, I run a successful online business utilizing 5 things.
1. An education system of value.
2. An awesome keyword research tool.
3. An auto responder, Aweber for my needs works great.
4. A landing page builder, LeadPages is very easy to create cool and simple opt in’s.
5. Some awesome writers.
I do the keyword research, the final edit, the SEO, get the content to rank as close to position #1 in search engines like Google and aim to help people within my niche.
If my affiliate product provides value, it will sell itself.
Lather, rinse, repeat…
Deanna Martin says
Enjoyed your site very much So much information. The top 10 internet marketing strategies were right on. I just wonder how you got those articles on the sidebar so nicely done. Is it part of your theme? I’m not that talented with computers, so most of this is hard for me to understand. Thanks, Deanna,
Just take it one day at a time and get the proper training you need. My theme does allow for posts to be put up and I used to have about 30 on the side.
Now it’s just two important post that I hope people check out and then my email opt-in.
I was just reading a success story from another student at Wealthy Affiliate. The cool thing about online business is the work you put in yesterday can pay off for years to come.
When you work at an online business, you’ll find over time that you can create a very stable online income source.
Especially if you know how to rank content. For those that don’t, check out our Free Targeted Traffic eBook.
You can use it like a guide to rank quickly and easily.
Great article, Todd.
I think to be the most successful, someone could do a little of “all of the above.” LOL But that can be really time consuming.
I totally agree with you that building a niche website is the best way to earn money online. However, I think the website could be more successful if you incorporate other methods, like video marketing, in with the niche website.
Building out a nice website is a lot of work, and the money won’t come overnight, but if you pick a niche you love, it’s not really work, so just have fun with it.
Amen Andy, preach on. That’s perfectly stated and you should use a combo of these internet marketing strategies.
I gave this advice to a new student not more that an hour ago.
I use a few services to run my full time income online business.
Wealthy Affiliate for education, support, hosting, onsite seo stuff.
Jaaxy for all my keyword research.
Aweber for my email marketing.
Lead Pages for my landing pages.
Writers for lots of quality content which I edit and do the SEO to cause the post to rank.
Other than that, some occasional PPC advertising. But the first two things that an internet marketer needs is a solid education and keyword research tool.
For all my strategies to learn online, check out our Free Internet Marketing Training eCourse.
I personally like the following strategies and is currently applying them on my blog, too:
1. Email marketing and automation:
You can simply set the swipe file and let it run on auto-pilot.
I currently have 5k+ subscribers, and haven’t been really adding new videos lately, but this indeed can bring some quality free traffic. Set the video up then forget about it…better yet, get consistent pay check on regular basis.
3. Affiliate program:
Oh Yeah, this is another source of passive income! With just a link, you can monetize your blog!
Right on Pamela, you’ve got it figured out. I find using a combination of strategies to work the best, that way you’re not putting all your internet marketing eggs into one basket.
Hi, Todd. This is a great information about internet marketing strategies. I’m new in this marketing strategies. A few months ago I build a site based on the specific niche, I want to build authority site just like point number 5.
Just like you say it does not come in one day, but I just keep trying. Maybe I can try another strategy in this post. Thanks for sharing it.
There’s a number of internet marketing strategies that overlap and compliment one another.
Ideally, I follow the same guide I developed to rank quickly, our Free Targeted Traffic eBook, and then for extra exposure I can get original comments using Site Rubix’s website building plateform followed by a bit of PPC advertising on Google or Facebook advertising.
Eventually, I want all my content to rank organically on page one in Google.
You can do the same thing too, give it a bit of time. It normally takes a good 20 posts to get the Google juice going.
If you need help getting keyword researched content, check out Human Proof Designs content packages.
Great post, but the trick is to choose one strategy to work on at a time or you could quickly become overwhelmed and give up altogether.
An authority website is an excellent idea, provided you don’t need to be making money by tomorrow. Over time an authority website could be earning you a full-time income, but as you said it does take time.
Luckily you can also combine some of these methods, like while building your authority website, at the same time you could be building an email list.
Great points Michel, much appreciated feedback.
Thanks for the information you have given on the Top 10 Internet Marketing Strategies.
They are all good. However, I consider number 5 and 9 as my choice.
Number 5. Building an Authority Website or taking authority with your website is the best thing for a serious marketer. If your website is not in Authority it makes no profitable sense.
There is no other sensible action to take with internet marketing than to utilize sellers platform. Doing this you must earn.
There are so many sellers platform out there that are willing to allow you the opportunity. Why not use them up?
I like your thinking DorcasW, but I might also suggest smaller niche sites. You can even center them on one product, keep your price point around $50 and focus all your content on that post.
This is a great way to create a quick online income generator then go on to make other similar sites. This of course is dependent on the product, but just another idea for you.
Thanks for your feedback.
Hey there Todd,
Thanks for the informative post!
You have given some great tips for online marketing! I have certainly learned a lot and this will help make an informed choice on which strategy I want to approach first.
I have always wanted to try affiliate marketing through a website. Just never knew how to start or even what to do!
Thanks for the direction
Happy to help Hailey, you should get hooked up with our free internet marketing training ecourse.
This is what you need to know to launch your affiliate marketing career off to a great start.
Nicely explained! I agree fully with all your 10 strategies. But I like #5 the most- Build an Authority Website. As you said, it’s the strategy worth trying.
You’re right it takes time to build an authority site and it takes an awful lot of work and dedication. But I think people often get confused with an authority site and niche site. Recently I watched a tutorial on YouTube showing how to build an authority site. But they ended up building a niche site. So, in addition to work hard on building an authority site, one has to know the right steps. And I think your article will definitely help one to achieve that.
Thanks for this informative article, Todd.
You bet Sethu, thanks for your feedback. There was a new case study I was watching called 4 Week Niche Case Study that revolved around the idea of building smaller niche sites based off one product.
Plus you can get these sites profitable in a much shorter time, like 4 weeks.
There’s no difference in Niche and Authoritative Sites except the size of the site.
It’s all online business to me and the best form of long term success for internet marketers.
If you’ve got a couple years to dedicate to internet marketing, you’ll be amazed at how fast it grows and what you can create.
I specially love email marketing because you make an effort to create something in exchange for an email address. It’s a “give and take” strategy and it works well.
I would like to ask what autoresponder do you use when you first starting out your business? I am wondering whether Mailchimp is good enough to start with.
I don’t know Daniel, I was in this same position and thought that as I grow my list, I’ll eventually want something like Aweber.
So that’s what I went with, but my efforts to developing my email series weren’t what they are now.
I probably wasted a year paying 19.99 with Aweber when I could have gone with Mailchimp for free. However, I think Mailchimp’s free version has changed.
I’m pretty happy with Aweber and would certainly recommend them.
I’d also recommend you put a decent amount of effort into your email marketing from the get go. Every time you have traffic to your site that’s an opportunity to get a lead, a new subscriber, etc..
That’s just another way to take a warm lead and convert them to a buyer through your email series.
Here’s a helpful post we put out on email marketing if you want to have a look.
Thank you for these great strategies! I’ve heard of most of them and used some myself. As you explained, I like that these internet marketing strategies can continue to be used through the years.
A person who is new to internet marketing doesn’t have to feel like they have to come up with a new technique to make money online.
I believe the top strategy is building a niche website.
This allows a person to get into affiliate marketing and offer visitors very helpful and useful information. It’s a win for everyone. I’ve been doing this for the past couple months and love it!
What is the difference between an authority website and a niche website? I know you explained this a little bit in your post, but could you explain it more, please.
Thank you for this helpful information!
Thanks for your feedback. There’s a ton of strategies and many can be intertwined for maximum success.
A niche site can be an authoritative site or it takes on smaller forms of a particular niche that never can get to that 1,000+ post mark.
Niche sites can even be about a single product. So I think of niche sites as being smaller sites.
Besides, what authoritative sites doesn’t have it’s own niche 🙂
Thanks for all the tips with online marketing, it’s certainly going to help me in the future.
I already try a bit of social media marketing but without much luck, maybe I need to focus on building more of a following first?
A bit off topic but would I be wise to do any offline word of mouth sort of advertising as well or is there no point if I’m using these methods here?
Marketing is marketing Jamie, you’re always on. That means word of mouth and everything you can do online to generate traffic.
It’s all about helping a niche audience and delivering.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
I like the idea of building an e-commerce website. I have a personalized storybooks business and want to take it into the online world.
As I read your article, I also got interested into the e-mail marketing concept idea. I was thinking that once the e-commerce site is up and running, then I could get their details and e-mail them news on new products and other news stuff.
Thanks for the awesome ideas.
Have saved your post and will definitely refer to it later on.
Happy to help Roopesh, it’s all a matter of connecting the dots.
If you need a rock solid mentality to online business. Check out our free eCourse on Internet Marketing.

I started affiliate marketing with a niche website recently and it is quite fun for me and very interesting to say the least.
It is great to see that internet gives people so much opportunities to make money online.
Smart move Rolands. 1,000’s of people are doing the very same thing and this is great to hear.
There’s so much untapped income potential online. The key is to start off on the right foot.
For that, I’d recommend our 100% Free Training eCourse.
I think this is a great place to start because we focus on preparing for success vs. throwing yourself in and not taking the proper steps to build a solid mind frame and foundation to your online business.
Hi Todd! Really great article! Was looking for this for a long time and really glad that I found your article as it was very comprehensive yet so simple to understand!
I have been a blogger for quite a long time already but I never knew this! Really learnt a lot from you.
Have joined your list and really looking forward to your next articles!
Thanks Fernglow, that’s great feedback and much appreciated. Todd
What you mentioned here all are true and this is the power of the internet which allows us to work from home and building up our own business.
I am already at no.6 which building affiliate marketing through a niche website. But the next things I would like to challenge myself is to create and online platform and authority site. I know not easy for authority but do you have any advice on how can I succeed in building authority site?
Just keep building and working at it day by day. I’d consider hiring a writer or two to help with the content load.
As a matter of fact, this was the best move I made after working online for the 1st year.
Of course I’d encourage you to have the final say and edit in all posts. You should also know how to do the SEO aspect of that.
If you’re having any challenges with that, sign up for our Free Targeted Traffic ebook.
It’s like my guide to quick rankings.
I have been wondering how to make an e-book and I thought it was something very difficult, I honestly had no idea I can use my own content. Your site certainly served as an eye-opener and I cannot wait to use your advice about creating an e- book and driving traffic to my site. Very educational, thanks.
You’re welcome Malenyalo, thanks for your kind feedback. I felt the same way until I explored the topic.
That’s one of the keys to online success.. A thirst for solving problems!
Great stuff Todd, you offer a comprehensive overview of the internet marketing as a career, like you say training is very important.
I personally like niche websites. They are great income producers once you’ve targeted some content and achieve good rankings. Then they’re sort of passive income sources.
I also need to incorporate email marketing into my current site.
Thanks Tony, email marketing is like everything else, it takes a bit of time to refine your system but can be a great addition to your niche site.
Great article. I am new to making money online and still trying to learn as much as possible.
Thank you for the great advice, Todd.
Happy to help Tyler, thanks for the feedback.
Some great internet marketing strategies in this post. Although my favorites would be creating a niche site or an authority site, I’m always surprised that most people seem to want to make money quickly.
They aren’t prepared to wait or to work for a few months before making those first sales.
Whenever someone asks me how to make money quickly I always recommend freelancing.
While I know it’s possible to make money writing or providing a service for others I always feel it’s a shame they aren’t ready to take the time to build their own niche site.
Your recommended training program would teach them everything they need to know. In my mind much better to be working on your own business rather than having to find jobs and deal with the clients.
Thanks for sharing these awesome strategies.
I know Peter, I’m always with the same thought process on this subject. I know some may find it intimidating to create an online business, I was too.
But the reality is that with anything, you work at it, you get better. If you’ve got a creative side or the ability to write, why wouldn’t you create a cool niche site?
I think it’s just a matter of the unknown. People don’t realize how simply it can be if you have that patience you’re referring to.
One cool new WA webinar series called Niche Case Study was a 4 week (4 total hours to watch) webinar about creating smaller niche sites based off of a single product.
It’s faster to get these types of sites to rank and faster to see profits. You can always build them out further, but with a specific product, it’s a quicker process to see those immediate results.
Here’s the Niche Case Study if you want to check it out.
You’ve shared some really good internet marketing strategies that work for the long-term. My favorite internet marketing strategies that you’ve mentioned above are authority websites and niche websites. I like the creativity involved with maintaining both types of websites. Eventually, I would like to venture into e-commerce. E-commerce would definitely be a challenge with all that is required.
Thanks for your feedback Eartha and I’m with you. Less complicated is better. If you’ve got the ability to write or pay for content and get it to rank, then you’ve got the traffic you need to start earning affiliate commissions.
Then it’s just a matter of repeating the process. If you need help with keywords or how to get free traffic, I’d recommend a quick read of our Free eBook to Target Traffic.
Ecommerce was the first way I made money online and I prefer niche sites much more after doing both.
Thanks for such an insightful post. My target is to build an authoritative website. Like you said, it is not easy but I am willing to go at it day by day as you recommended.
I am also curious about how one can create an ebook and the process of selling it online. I would be ecstatic if you could give me some tips and guidelines into the process.
You bet Pro, good to have your feedback. These are all solid internet marketing strategies, but I’m like you, go with authoritative sites or smaller niche sites that are easy to rank. You can do whatever, I went with getting one site profitable before moving on to new sites.
For your eBook questions, read this post, we give simple strategies on how to develop an eBook.
I am relatively new to the online marketing area and it was refreshing to read the content on your site. While the 10 tips provided are very informative, what stood out most is building trust on the internet. What would you recommend to a newbie like myself to get started in building trust?
Thanks for your feedback Krissy. It all starts with a solid foundation and education when you start building site.

Awesome, thanks for the update.
There are many strategies to make money online, but I agree with you these 10 are the best ones, since they involve the idea of creating long haul income.
People tend to forget that Internet is all about people trusting other people, and that’s the base of any thriving online business, since trust leads to authority and that eventually creates stable revenue.
Thanks for putting all of them together, Todd! This is a very helpful article.
Awesome Israel, thanks for your feedback and yes these are all solid long term solutions for those ready to make real online businesses a reality.
A great article you wrote! Any newbie to internet marketing will surely benefit from this valuable information.
I have just started learning about affiliate marketing. Very interesting indeed. Writing an eBook is what I am looking into next.
I have to say that no matter which strategy you choose, you need to have perseverance in order to succeed in this field.
You can do it but won’t be able achieve all in one big step. Learn step by step and enjoy the journey to success.
Perfectly stated Sharon. That’s the attitude and mentality to have when it comes to making money online. Each and every one of these strategies requires hard work and dedication.
Personally, I think the rewards far outweigh the hard work one must put in at the beginning.
I love waking up and making money online. I also love the fact that in 3 years I’ve created an online passive income that would take at least a million dollars in real estate if I were to try to make the same amount of money with something like income from rentals.
So pretty cool in my book.
Best of luck to you and your online business and success.
