What is the Secret to Making Money Online? Let’s Find Out…

So… what is that online money making secret? By now, you probably already know it. While knowing how to make money at home is no longer a “secret”, it is the implementation of the “secret” that tends to slow people down, or stop them dead in their tracks entirely. It’s all in your implementation. If you already know how making money online works and yet you’re still not earning any money, the problem lies somewhere in your implementation (or lack of perhaps).

For those of you who aren’t up on what this make money online secret is, I’ll say it one more time: Find profitable (and obtainable) niches, build blogs around those niches, create high quality content based on the keywords in the niches, get backlinks and social signals to build your rankings and traffic, and monetize the blogs with Adsense and/or affiliate links. It’s so boring and repetitive, but it works.

The problem most people face with following those guidelines is that they keep trying to get fancy and go way off track from the original make money online plan, which is… If you don’t know, read the previous paragraph again.

Sticking with that same boring agenda day in, day out is the closest thing to sure way to making a living online. It couldn’t possibly get any simpler, and yet many people are making it complicated. Stay with your plan and it won’t fail you. Sure, there will be some failures along the way due to a bad niche selection, choosing the wrong keywords, a ranking drop, algorithm update, or whatever else, but the overall strategy will be a success if you continue to work it. It may not be as fast as you would like, but that’s life. There is no such thing as “easy money” or “fast cash” in the world of legitimate internet marketing — unless you are only looking for a small amount.

Another problem a lot of people have is that they get discouraged too easily. You are not going to rank for the phrase “make money online” in 1 week – or in 1 month, and probably not even in 1 year (unless you have a lot of friends in the MMO niche who can help you out with backlinks), so stop getting all disappointed when you don’t! Give it time and go for easier niches first. Go for keywords that are in your league and work your way up. Once you have small successes with easy keywords, you will have the confidence and backlink support network available to give you a chance to rank on page 1 of Google for more competitive terms.

The most common question I get when people email me from my various websites is, “How long did it take you to start making a living online?” It took me 2 years before I was earning enough money to consider it a truly livable income. It could take you longer or it could take you less time. It really depends on your level of resourcefulness, your ability to follow a plan, the amount of time you have available to work online, and your persistence. You will be able to make money online, but you have to be willing to do the work and tolerate the waiting period required in order to rank for keywords, build up traffic, learn the ropes, and so on.
