by Kristen Pearce
If you are reading this you musteither already be workingonline or thinking about it. So manypeople are working online today and making a great deal of money doingso. I’m here to tell you how you can makemoney…and do it without spending a dime.
First I want to tell you I don’tbelieve it is possible to“make money fast”, online or off. Anybusiness, online or off, takes time to build and to see profit. I do believe that if you want to make moneyfaster than you need to spend a little, but, as I will show you, youcan do itwith no cost to you, it will just take longer.
About 95% of the programs out thereare scams and manyadvertise that you can “make money fast”, but first give us your creditcardnumber. This leads me to my first tip:
Never join a program that wants a payment upfront.
I don’tknow about you, but I’mmuch more confident joining a program that tells me I can make moneyand don’thave to pay for it. It shows me thecompany is “real.”
Get a Website
You joined. Ok, next step. Younow have something to sell or promote. Buthow? With a website. Youneed to showpeople what you are selling or promoting. Somecompanies give you “gateway” sties and that’sgood, but not goodenough. You need another avenue to“show” or link to these sites. Thesesites alone will not make you any money. Thereare many of free hosts out there that providefree web space andhtml editors.
Whenlooking for a place to hostyour free site you have to keep a few things in mind. How much space will they give you, do theyput ads on your site, and do they have their own program to help youmake yoursite if you don’t know html. Here aresome free sites but there are others:
Tripod YahooGeoCities Angelfire
Keep inmind that most free sitesWILL put ads on yours. Because oflimited space you are going to want to upgrade to a better web host…onethatyou will have to pay for, after you start making money with yourbusiness.
Now wewill talk about how toadvertise your website.
This issimple but timeconsuming. Even if you spend money onyour business this is something you are going to want to do. This is what helps get your page listedhigher in search engines.
Theprocess is simple. You do a search in thetop search enginesusing your keywords and keyword phrases. Youare looking for sites with similar content toyours. Let’s use “home based business” asanexample. Go to Google and put thekeyword phrase “home based business” in the search box. Click the firstsitelisted. Make sure the site containscontent similar to yours than scroll looking for something like “addlink”,“submit your link”, “link exchange”, etc. Onceyou find it click on it and fill out the form. Fillin all the information it asks. Usuallythey will submit there information soyou can link back to them. If they linkto you, you must link back to them. If you can’t find anything on their site tolink to, send the webmaster and email asking to exchange links. Youwant toinclude the title of your website, your url, and a brief description of your site.
Now do thesame for the first 2-3pages of search results. Repeat forother search engines such as Yahoo and repeat using different keywords. You will wait anywhere from an hour to a fewweeks to hear back from people, you may not hear back at all. But the more links you get on your site thebetter your search ranking will be.
You aregoing to want to put linkson separate pages from your home page and put no more than 99 on a page. Doing this for 2 hours a day for 2-3 monthswill get you high on the search engines and a LOTof traffic.
Manypeople don’t like trafficexchanges because the traffic directed to your site is not targeted. You may receive 1,000 visitors or more beforegetting even 1 sign-up or purchase, but if you don’t want to spendmoney,traffic exchanges won’t hurt.
A trafficexchange is giving youtraffic in return for visiting other sites. Youwill only have to visit these sites for 10-30seconds. The more you use, the moretraffic you willget. Here are some traffic sites to use:

Classified and Free Ad Sites
Whetheryou are selling a productor promoting a business opportunity, free ad sites are great tools. You can download AdWizard for free. It will help you keep track of your ads aswell as provide you will free ad sites.
Using these simple strategies willhelp make your businessgrow. I won’t lie, it will take time,but what good business didn’t take time to grow?
