First of all let me say a big hello to all of my subscribers and readers, this is officially my first post in my new blog, everything you see before this one is from previous newsletters etc. to build up some great content to get things rolling.
I am going to try to concentrate on questions I get asked most, and of course, one of the most asked is:
What are The Simplest and Best Ways to Make Money Online?
I often get asked the question “how can I make money online”, the answer in short is to do a little work each day, creating, adding to and increasing your streams of income.
OK, so where can you get started creating these ‘streams of income’?
I have listed a few of what I consider the simplest and best ways for you to get started, don’t try to bite off more than you can chew, simply start with one method at a time and gradually increase after you feel you have completed one method to the best of your abilities.
Remember, these methods will possibly create you an income for many years to come, so keep that in mind when you are creating.
How many times have you heard, “The money’s in the list!” It seems impossible to browse an Internet Marketing forum or scan a list of “How To Make Easy Money” articles and ebooks without tripping over that phrase ten times.
Well, the reason is ... It happens to be 100% true!
Without a responsive, loyal list, you have no one to directly market to. You already know that, if you just send messages and ads blindly out into virtual space, nothing will happen. You do know that, don’t you?
Unfortunately building a targeted, loyal list isn't an easy thing to do, well that is until now.
What if I told you that I have recently started using some brand new software to build my mailing list on auto-pilot?
I have started to use a product called the "Boomerang List Builder" to "wrap" all of my existing products with resale rights. Wrapping the product allows me to collect the name and email address of every single person that reads my eBook or runs my software!
Today I would like to delve a little into one of the most frequent questions that I get asked, and that is:
"how can I get traffic to my website/product so I can start earning cash?"
I don't know how many times I have had to answer this, but it's a LOT!
I have structured this in the form of a numbered list, so you can easily follow it step by step and you can always come back here if you get stuck.
Ten Simple Ways To Promote Your Website or Product
1. Create an eBook and give away resale rights with it.
It is not as hard as you might think to write your own eBook about a chosen subject, you can get most of your ideas from Private Label content. Basically, you need to choose a subject that you think is going to be popular and people will be attrated to, three main categories for a good title are something that will save the reader time, something that will save the reader money and something that will explain how to do something in particular.
Once you have a subject you can then find as much material on that as you can to help you write about it, again, you can use Private Label content to assist your writing. Don't forget to place lots of links to your website or product inside the eBook! Brandable eBooks are the easiest option, so long as they allow you to brand your required link.

2. Submit an article to article directories.
You can submit an article with your link included to an article directory and when people read or use the article you will then get your link spread about, a few good article submission directories are: Ezine Articles, Best Ezines and Go Articles, however, the easiest option is to submit to multiple directories all in one go, from here.
You will probably not realize, but your article has the possibility of being used by others, for websites, other article directories, e-zines and more, the best bit is that your link/info. will always be there. If you struggle for article content try splitting Private Label content and add your own spin on it. Try to be as unique as you possibly can.
I know many of you guys will think this is 'easy peasy' but there are still many people who struggle with uploading files to their web space.
To give you all a guiding hand I have created a tutorial on this subject using one of the best FREE FTP clients around - SmartFTP.
SmartFTP is a great FREE FTP file transfer program that is very simple to use.
Using SmartFTP, I will show you how to transfer files to and from your web host in the easiest and quickest way possible, this is simple yet very effective, and best of all it's FREE!
Here is a link to the tutorial - http://www.planet-divinity.com/tutorials/smart_ftp_tutorial
Uploading and downloading to and from your web host is a lot easier than many people think and it is very useful if you are just starting out and need to do a lot of 'trial and error' testing.
Make sure you backup any files before you start as you may overwrite existing files.
To backup from your web host, simply download your entire website onto your PC before you start.
To backup from your hard disk, simply copy your entire website folder and paste it somewhere safe.
I hope this has been of help to all and wish you all good luck!
eBay has now banned its users from placing any digital product that is sent to the customer in the form of a download link. There’s been a great commotion regarding eBay and its digital item restrictions. Large numbers of eBay sellers have been thinking of ways to avoid this possible problem. One very simple and likely approach is to send the CD’s of the products to your customers, so that sellers can successfully carry out their sales while staying within eBay rules and regulations. While you are selling the products you can introduce your customers to several of your other online products, for example, if your customer wants to purchase one of your e-books then he can receive your CD that can be sent to his doorstep within a couple of days. In the meanwhile you can direct him to one of your websites that contains extracts from e-books that you also want to sell. Think of it as a great selling opportunity. You can advertise your products while making sales. This can be an effective way of building relationship with your customers.
The opportunity to send your products in the form of CD’s can provide you with some extra time to promote your other products and services. For example, a customer shows some interest in your digital photography e-books; he places an order and makes an online payment. You send him an email telling him, that a CD containing an e-book will be sent to you in a short period of time, say within 5 days. Make sure you thank him for being patient. Within this email, you can add a link to one of your other sites that contains excerpts of your e-books. So, the customer is happy reading all the material on your other website, while the digital photography e-book is being delivered to him.
Another busy month here for me, I have got so many projects on the go at the minute I don't know whether I am coming or going!
One of my projects in the very near future is a site to help people like yourself to advertise their products and build a list, this brought me to my subject for this post!
Now don't be put off by the title if you do not yet know anything about viral marketing,this could be a great start in a very important step in your Internet Marketing career!
I will place important any 'Special Offers and 'Special Discounts' in the relative sections so please feel free to send me any ebooks/reports/sites etc. that you would like adding for other users to take advantage of.
