In order to make money on the Internet, someone must make a purchase. This means that you must either create a product or course and sell it to others, or you must promote another person’s product or course through your affiliate link. Once you think about it in this way it all becomes much easier. I do some of each; I have my own products and courses that I sell online and I also recommend other people’s products through my affiliate link. The result is that my prospects and clients have access to the information that I consider to be the best available on the Internet to help them to build their own online business.
Starting with an audio product is usually the easiest. Decide what you want to share with your audience, make some detailed notes about your topic, and then record it. You can make it available for download as an mp3 file. Include a short study guide to go along with your audio and your product will be complete. You may want to also include a transcript of your audio recording for the people who prefer to read than to listen to the information you are providing.
Marketing your product must become a concentrated and focused effort. I believe you absolutely must have a sales letter to go along with your offer, because people want to know exactly what they are buying. Once you understand the formula of how to write your own web sales copy, it will no longer seem like such a daunting task.
Be sure to use social media sites, as well as your blog, to let people know who you are and what you do. This will increase your online income with both your own products, as well as the affiliate products you are promoting as a part of your business.
