Top resources to learn how to make money online.
Whenever someone starts getting into online marketing to make some extra cash they always want to figure out how to do it rather than just jump in, well hopefully they do. Finding the right resources in order to learn isn't always the easiest thing to do when it comes to online marketing. This is because there are so many people out there pitching the perfect "system" to make money online, but I'm here to try and push you in the right direction and let you know what you should avoid Top resources to learn how to make money online
Now I'm not even being biased when I say that SEOclerks is a great place to start learning. I'm not telling you to go out and buy a bunch of services to see what works and what doesn't. I am telling you to get active in the community discussion section and talk with experienced people about what you want to do. We can comment on your discussion and let you know if we think you're doing something worth your time, if we think you're just wasting your time or give you some other tips to increase your chances of making some money with the method you have in mind
A lot of the people who post here are extremely knowledgeable and can help you out every step of the way. Start a new discussion every time you have a question and we can walk you through something the way we think it should go. It couldn't hurt to ask a question but it can hurt to go out on your own and screw up for a few weeks.
Just like SEOclerks, there are a lot of big marketing forums out there that can help you learn everything there is to making money online. I've been a member of plenty of these forums and some are better than others, but they all have their own benefits. Become a good member and post frequently to see what people think. Be sure to search for the information you want to know before just asking a question because on forums the members aren't usually as nice to someone who doesn't try to find the answers before asking questions. If you can't find the answer to your questions then you can open a thread, just be sure to add in there that you didn't find the answer to your question and that is why you're asking in a new thread. Usually people will be more willing to answer if you do it this way or they will point you in the right direction to the answer you need.
There are plenty of blogs out there that have an enormous amount of information on them, but only a handful are worth reading up on. If you do a simple search for "SEO blog" or "Marketing Blog" then you'll find them pretty quickly. These posts are pretty informative when it comes to step by step processes, but sometimes they may leave out the golden nugget you need in order to make money. Bigger blogs won't usually give you good ways to make money, but you can use them to get ideas on how to devise methods to pull in some profits
I would say to use the bigger blogs as a way to refine your skills and not necessarily to learn how to make money, but sometimes you'll find a golden nugget post that you can exploit for some quick profits
What to avoid
Stay away from the services on big websites because they will just tell you they make money but they won't tell you how. Of course their service is what they might be using to help them make money, but it's not everything. Learn how to make money using a method and then come back to purchase a service if it's needed. If you're low on funding and you can do the SEO, design, method, etc. yourself then do it. If you can outsource it for cheap then be sure to go over all the sellers and pick the best one for you.
When you're on forums you should stay away from all the marketplace hype and stick with the other sections of the forum where people are exchanging information for free. You will also want to stay away from any lounges where people just talk about random crap which has nothing to do with the forum itself. These sections of the forums are good to increase your post count but horrible to learn anything of value.
Each type of website, forum and blog has it's own benefits and it's up to you to learn to use them. Don't listen to any hype and try to make money on your own before paying for a "system". If you do pay for something, make sure it helps you with your method and it's not a method in itself. I say this because how many people do you think have bought this "system" and not put an ounce of unique thought into it to make money? If you have a unique thought then run with it and make money.
