Don\'t Go Broke Making A Living

Can you really make money online for free? Well, if you listen to the "make money online gurus" the answer is no. They will say that you have to buy this and you have to buy that. If you don't, they say that you won't be able to compete. You know what I say to that? Phooey! There are only five things yo need to get your business up and making money. If you notice, cash isn't on the list.

The first thing you will need is a support group to cheer you on. Starting a business, especially a boot-strapped one, takes a lot of work. There will be no shortage of people trying to tear down your ambitions. It is just in some people's nature to try to keep others down. That kind of negativity can overwhelm you if you don't have a great support group. You need these people to encourage you and share your successes.

The second thing you need is a website. There are plenty of free website options. Yes, in the long-run, you will eventually want to have your own domain and a self-hosted site. But, there are plenty of people making money with free ones.

The third thing yo need is content. Sure, there are people that hire this out. You aren't going to be one of them, though. You have a rich storehouse of life experience to draw from. If you need to learn more about your subject, the Internet is at your fingertips. You don't have to be a professional writer, either. People connect with other people, not perfect grammar. Be real. Be authentic. Be consistent.

The fourth thing you need is traffic. If you build enough quality content, people will eventually find you. You can help that process along by engaging your target audience. You can visit forums and participate in hangouts. Another free way to drive traffic to your site is to submit content to sites like StreetArticles, Squidoo and HubPages. You can link from these places back to your site. After a while, Google will start to notice the activity and will send you organic traffic.

The last thing you need is a way to monetize your site. This is the fun part. You can link to Amazon products, participate in affiliate programs, sign up for Adsense, or even sell your own products. You can do all of these things for free.

Whoever said that you have to spend money to make money never really tried it the free way. If you have an Internet connection and time to invest, you can learn how to make money online for free. It will take time, but the pay-off is worth it.
