Simple Tips For Making Money Online Even If You Don’t
Have Anything To Sell!
Michael Thomas - 08/02/09
Have an idea about making money online but don’t know where to start?
There are several ways to make money on the Internet - even if you don’t have a product to sell. Keep in mind that
running an online business takes time and effort, just like running any business. However, you can get started
without any products, which is one less roadblock for most people wanting to start a business.
You don’t need to be a computer expert to run an online business, but you do need to either be able to set up a
website, or have the resources to pay someone else to do it for you.
Here are 3 simple ways to make money online even if you don’t have your own product:
Being an affiliate means you are selling other people’s products, and you get a percentage of the sale, or you make
a small fee for each person who requests more information. Most major retailers offer affiliate programs, along
with many smaller retailers (with lots of good products and services). It’s not a good idea to try to compete with
an established retailer like Wal-Mart, Target, or Circuit City. A better way to make money is to find a “niche”
that serves a smaller group of people, that you can easily reach.
For example, rather than selling sporting goods to everyone, you might start a fishing site that sells canoes and
fishing products to people who like fresh water fishing. You can also find smaller retailers who may offer more
specialized products to those who know a lot about fishing, while selling the basics from Wal-Mart to
A good place to start is Commission Junction (http://www.CJ.com), and you’ll get an idea of the products you can offer. Be creative in
finding your niche, start with something you know a little about, or enjoy doing, and before long you can be
making money online!
Adsense from Google
Adsense is an advertising program from search engine Google.com (there are other advertising programs you can
offer, but for now Google’s is the biggest and most popular). By placing ads on your site, you earn money for each
person who clicks on the ad. Google will automatically determine which ads are best for your site, based on the
topic of each web page. All you have to do is place the code on your web page, and Google does the rest.
You can also sell individual ads, and determine your own terms and price. But using a program like Google is
simple, and if your set gets a lot of visitors, you can make good money. Again, the best way to succeed is to find
a niche, create a website around that topic, and Google will be able to determine the best ads for your
Write a “How-To”
If you don’t want to sell other people’s products, but don’t have a lot of money to create your own, a simple way
to get started is to write your own “how-to” booklet. Pick a topic you know enough to write about, and start
writing. Information products are always good sellers - the key is to solve a particular problem. “How to catch
fresh water fish” or “How to plan a fishing vacation on a tight budget” are possibilities for the fishing niche
To learn more, do a search for “creating information products” or “writing e-books”, and you will find lots of
resources. Once you create your product, Clickbank.com offers a simple service to help you sell your information
product, and there are others to help you get started.
Again, be creative, there are lots of problems out there that people need help with. And offering a good solution
can make you lots of money!
online takes more than just building a website. You need to pick the right products or services. Then you
need to find the right audience to sell those products and services. Then you need to promote your website to
enough people so you can make money. For now, you should have enough ideas to get you started - even if you
don’t have a product to sell yet!
