What I am going to talk about here in the next few paragraphs is really a win, win situation for all involved. And I mean by this that not only can you be in business and make money online from home but at the same time give the people paying you, your customers, excellent value to go with it. So with that in mind, this short article “how to make money online from home by giving value” I will explain exactly how you can do this.
The Basic Idea
Whether you are just considering making money online or you are already down this path one thing you must remember is to always give as much value to your target market as possible. Your target market is the people you have identified as people interested in what services or products you offer.
When you give them value be with quality free information like content on a website or recommending excellent products or services that will solve their problems then you create a relationship/trust that will serve you well again and again when you repeat this process. And this process can be applied to any type of market out there.
Where do you begin
Well the first thing you need to know in the process of how to make money online by giving value, is to work out exactly what your target market problems are. You need to understand what they are concerned about, what fears they have and what questions do they keep asking. And when you know this, you will then know what value to give them.
How do I find out there problems?
Let’s say your chosen market is Golf and let’s say that within this market you have identified a niche market of left handed lady golfers. Sometimes a market such as golf can be too big a subject to cover so then it’s important narrow it down a bit which in this case is left handed lady golfers.
Now to find out there concerns one of the things you can do is visit online forums. These are great places to find out what your chosen market is talking about. Just search in Google for your particular niche forum and see what is being said.
Find out there concerns and there questions which in this case will be on ladies golfer forums. There may even be a left handed ladies golfer forum but the main thing is that you do your research via several of these forums so that you can build up a picture of what they want to know or do.
You can also visit relevant websites to again build up your information about your target market.
How do I monetize this information?
Once you have a good picture of what your target market is talking about and you know what their wants and needs are then it’s time to look for the solutions, which in this case could be content, products, services or a mixture of all three.
If you are just starting online then you may not have a website that you can place content on so in your case you will just need to find some quality products to promote.
If you do have your own website or blog then armed with your research you can add content that really speaks to your markets concerns.
With regards to promoting products then you will do this as an affiliate, which means you can promote other peoples products without having to stock them, take payments for them or deal with any enquiries. Its a great way to be quickly up and running and making money online from home.
Basicly you join for free a companies affiliate program who then give you a unique affiliate link that you can use in your advertising or on your website. When someone clicks on this link they are taken to the main companies sales page and if a sale is made you are paid a commission.
My article “make money online with affiliate marketing” will give you all the details you need around this such as how to and where to find excellent products for free to promote to your target market.
As an example lets say you have discovered that your target market, in this case left handed ladies golfers, have a real problem in finding quality golf clubs. It may be that the bulk of golfing companies cater mainly to the right handed market and its a real problem finding left handed golf clubs.
So with that in mind you would go looking for companies providing such golf clubs and then join their affiliate program so that you can then start promoting their products or services. Bearing in mind you are looking for excellent companies who offer great value and service to all their customers.
How to advertise your products and services
This is the easy part. With your newly acquired affiliate links you go back to the same forums and websites that you originally checked out to find out their problems and then start advertising there.
Or if you have a website then you can either use your affiliate links or your website address for advertising.
In the case of forums you will need to join them first and then you can start interacting with these people and answering their questions/problems with little messages about what you can offer. And at the bottom of your message you will normally be allowed to type in your personal affiliate link/web address to the product/website your promoting.
Not all forums allow you to do this but most will, but make sure you don’t just go on them pasting your affiliate links. Give some genuine value/information regarding the topic/question your posting on.
This is again where the value comes in. Using the knowledge you have built up through your research enlighten these people to what you have found out. It could be tips an tricks or a genuine review of a product you are promoting.
If you did your research on websites then with these you will look to place a comment at the end of any articles on their site relevant to what you are offering with again your affiliate link/website address in. Remembering to give value as always
Will it Work
In a nutshell, YES. But you have to be consistent, you have to be going on these forums and websites consistently to build up some trust so that people see you as someone to look out for and then are inclined to click your links.
And the more value you give with your information and quality products the more inclined they are to click your links and the more likely you are to make a commission.
Turbo charge your results
If you really want to increase your earnings then consider having a website/blog specific to your target market. Just like I have with this website that caters for people looking to make money online from home and the internet, you can have one that is full of great content (value) centred around your target markets needs with links and adverts to your affiliate promotions.
You can, as before, promote your website to the forums and a whole host of other places where you know your target market hangs out. They can then come to your site and see lots of great free content that builds up your trust with them as well as anything your promoting.
Value, Value, Value,
At the risk of banging on too much about it, to ensure the highest success with all this, your #1 priority is to give all concerned massive value, hence the title of this article “how to make money online from home by giving value”. If you do this then success is yours but if you go into to this just looking to make money then you will struggle all the way. And hey, it feels a lot nicer when you do get your commission payments knowing you have provided a great service to get it.
