How to make money online?
Let’s get back to the business. Below, I have listed the right things that you will require to earn money from internet:
1. Find the right niche
Both millionaires mentioned above got success because they knew what they were doing. The idea of Facebook was to connect people. Mark was a programmer and did exactly what he was capable of. He connected people and now Facebook is the largest social media on planet. It happened because Mark knew his niche properly.
Niche is any topic that you are interested about. Let me get you some idea with this. Do you love programming or have some descent knowledge about the topic then it should be your niche, just for example. You decide what niche should you start? It is like pre planning. Niche could be anything. Like if you love to cook and create new recipes, then consider it as your niche. You should be free minded and able to keep learning and discover more about it.
Remember that at the beginning of your online journey, you should identify right niche because your career depends on one single niche.
Here are few niches that you can work on:
It is not necessary that you should pick above niches. You can choose anything that you are confident and interested in. If you pick the wrong niche and don’t have proper knowledge about it then you wouldn’t be able to move towards success. Only pick a niche about a subject in which you have done PhD and can help your followers too earn that degree.
Before you start any online business, you will require a MasterCard to store your earning.
Payoneer is the best alternative for MasterCard.
Why Payoneer MasterCard?
1. To verify Paypal
2. Available in 200 countries and 150 currencies
3. Best alternative in countries (like Nepal, Bhutan, etc.) where MasterCard is hardly available
4. Completely free to order
5. Free shipping (i.e. no delivery charges applied)
6. Saves extra commission (taxes) from banks charged to own a MasterCard.
Click here (non referral link) to order your MasterCard for free.
After receiving MasterCard, put some funds (cash) on it so that it starts working.
These were the basic things. We are almost there. It is time to learn more.
You will need to create a blog first
Many new users and learners who are unknown about this topic have frequently asked me question:
What is a blog?
A blog is a truncation or abbreviation or short form or whatever you call it, of word “weblog” which means a collection of data and entries published on the internet. People mostly refer a weblog as a blog or website , simply known as “site“. The data and entries stored on a blog are known as “posts“.
You might also like to read:
Creating a blog is quite easy. But you have to pick one right choice among these two options which I’ve described clearly on this post.
Blogger is free platform to create a blog and easy to use for newbies.
No hosting is required. You can easily pick a theme, use a free domain (or custom) and start your blog.
The defect is that it is SEO unfriendly if you don’t have professional skills. Also, you cannot remove or edit the numbers from permalink on your posts.
It is simple and easy to use. That is why most learners use Blogspot to create a blog.
WordPress.com is the best method than Blogger because WordPress sites are SEO optimized by default. We can edit the permalink here. There are plenty (thousands) of themes in WordPress for our blog design and it is completely free to use. But we cannot edit our template, add plugins or upload our custom theme on it.
It is the best platform for blogging than any other. We can create hosted and non-hosted websites. It is SEO friendly as well. We can also edit the permalinks and upload our custom template. But we have to pay money for buying a domain name and hosting in order to create a site on wordpress.org .
It is your choice which one of these platforms you will choose to blog. Depending upon your ability and talent, you can always choose a best platform that fits you.
Things to remember before chapter one ends:
1. What is hosting?
Hosting is a virtual (digital) web space or hard disk that stores images, videos, links, CSS, HTML, flash, etc. uploaded in our blog.
To buy hosting means to buy a digital hard disk on internet so that the data uploaded on our blog can be stored.
In a non hosted site (also known as free website) , our files are stored on our blogging servers such as Blogspot. No need to buy web space.
In a hosted site, weblogs and files are stored in our own servers. We can use our computer hard disks or buy hosting online from a company to store entries of our blog.
2. What is “SEO Unfriendly”?
It is a term used for a website to indicate that it is not visible to search engines (Bing, Google, Yahoo).
The full form of SEO is “Search Engine Optimization“.
