    If you are still unsure what kind of products to promote this year- or, more precisely, this part of the year- then i gotta tell you - although it has been told before- work from home is the niche to go.

    When i say work for home, i do not mean that make money online websites, or affiliate ebooks, gurus promoting shits, and stuff. Your target is not other webmasters, - this is an extremely hard niche to get in by the way-. Your target should be the people who heard something about making money on the web, have a general idea, and are willing to start.
    To these people, you do not wanna tell them: build a website and collect affiliate commissions, or adsense. They are scared by the idea of building a website, that is too much for them. They just want easy money.

    Not long time ago, when you were trying to convince someone to make money on the web, or so, you were facing this question : " Is it possible to make money from the web"

    Now this question is no longer the problem. There has been a lot of massive education about this subject in general and now people KNOW that is possible to make money on the web. They have seen on TV news, they have heard friends talking, they have seen real examples and so on. Your mission is no longer to convince people that IT IS possible to make money online, because most of them already know this. Now, what they ask is HOW to make money. The search on "make money online " is on an ascendent slope, continuosly increasing , check it out here

    Now, when people come to find answers to this question, you do not have to tell them: build a website, collect commissions, adsense and stuff. That is to hard. If someone is already decided to start an online business and build a website, and so on, he is gonna do some research and not gonna buy your shitty ebook (unless you are un established GURU). Your target is people who have their first contact with make money online niche.

    So, what do you promote to them? Exactly what they want, exactly what they dream off. Easy money with no skills required.

    Programs like work from home, online surveys, data entry jobs, hell, even get paid to play games programs, these are a killer, especially in the first 3 months of every year. People need a new start, it is a new year, they want something easy,they want money, and that's what you have to give them.


    One of the most profitable sites that I promote ,for instance, is an online survey site through paydotcom. It is called OnlineBestSurveys.com, it is Ruck's website by the way.
    I do not send to it high quality traffic, but these were my stats for yesterday:
    [​IMG]

    For around 1000 uniques, i got 5 sales, times 27$ per sale, this gives me a epcm of 135$ which is pretty good, considering that all the traffic i sent was free one, i would say even junk. I am pretty sure that the ones promoting through adwords, or paid traffic sources are getting much better conversions.

    You do not have to promote this necessary website (although the guy is great, you get paid like the first week of the month, much faster than most of the affiliates companies out there) but i want to emphasize that this is quite a hot niche at the moment, and is going to be.

    People say that online surveys are already expired, well, i have a different opinions: They still work, and the will work for quite a long time. Why? Cause there will always be NEW people looking to make money on the web, and if you know how and where to find them, they are gonna buy it.

    Man, i wrote a hell of the post, and i said almost nothing in it. I should be trying to be more concise these days i guess.

    For you, i'll make an exception and tell: It was Youtube. Now, let's face the truth: no one comes to youtube to buy stuff. (that s why the conversion is quite low). Imagine if you could market on ebay for instance, or other places, for free. That would be a real hit.

    i tried to promote a system like income4beginners from Ruck's idea, and such, but did not worked out very well for me. Income4beginners is still to complicated for someone new to the web to understand the process, and it sounds a lot like mlm (multilevelmarketing) to many of them. That's why i chose to go for this simpler things. You can tell them that "big companies care about you, and about your decision, cause you are important - that's what people love to hear- and they are more than willing to pay you for your time to complete a survey. Why let everyone else on the web make money from big companies, while you settle for nothing? Your opinion is as important as theirs" or you can tell them" big companies expanded a lot and they need a lot of work to do from homedata entry jobs, that's why they pay you to type from home, can t you do that?"

    Well, the idea is that you sell dreams, but well, i have no remorses. -or maybe my conscience is not so developed.

    Wow,

    Thanks for the plug Nick. Damn nice sig too. I probably should launder
    that money over to ya :)...

    In all seriousness though. Almost a quarter million dollars from OnlineBestSurveys
    since March of last year and we owe it all to affiliates. Granted I did have a plan when the site is launching but as I have I said, it took work into leveraging affiliates into wanting to promote the site. It's sat on the top of Paydotcom as the #1 selling product since March of last year.

    It's all thanks to affiliates. Thank you very much Nick.

    Offline Advertising works great too. Especially if you have a voicemail on the end of that phone number.
    I spent $8 on a Tollfreeforwarding phone number this past year and it's disgusting how much the conversions went up.
    I really dont know what it is about the site that makes it convert. Tons of prettier sites out there.

    hey this is great but how do you make the videos about making money? record some power point presentation like "visit this link and learn how to make easy money"? or you get traffic from comments to other ppl videos?

    Yeah this is a stumbling block I have been trying to get over also. I have never made a video or powerpoint. I see many things online indicateing video is the wave of the future.

    Holy crap! You guys are scaring me. Maybe I'm better at this than I thought.

    I just wrote my VERY FIRST e-book last night about how BEGINNERS could make money on the internet. I'm talking people who don't know a blog from a log.

    I discuss blogging combined with the use of paid e-mail and survey programs.

    Shit, Ruck, I didn't know that was your site. I'm going to go modify my book to include it.

    OK, that was MY book I posted earlier. I was just testing the waters so please don't bust my balls too hard.

    I've changed it a bit since I even posted it this morning.

    Let me know what you guys think I should do with it or what else I can do in this 'niche'. I love this post Nick.

    nice thread... i looked at the income4beginners too. I would say just copy that complete system but with another simpler ebook.
    Btw the book was banned from paypal, he's now accepting money from alertpay. Banned from paypal?? i guess to much refunds...

    Anyway rucks blog is a must!

    Very rewarding and interesting post Nick, and i must admit i must be "Bonkers" as i give out all my 300 plus survey company listings to my members list for free as a goodwill gesture! They seem to love it anyway!

    I agree with you 100% thta you have to give people the easy option really to show them a very easy methos to earn money as a lot of people know how to set up a website without us telling them how to do this or selling them some costly and fancy video course. basic ideas they want i have learned are the best as you rightly say yourself.

    I do give out how to make money from driving your own car, eating, and shopping companies who will hire you, and companies who will pay you to read.

    I think i may have to charge a small fee for thse now as I'm sure I'm losing out ha!

    Probably because i'm busy promoting my roulette and gambling systems as they work for me quite well amongst other items i promote.

    Good info Nick.

    There is definitely money to be made when targeting folks who just need a little extra money without wanting to learn anything techie.

    I know someone who made over $400 selling a 5 page report on working from home as a phone sex operator, for example.
