3 simple tips to earn money online, even if you have nothing to sell!

Do you have an idea on how to make money online but don't know where to start?

There are several ways to make money online, even if you don't have a product to sell. Keep in mind that running an online business takes time and effort, just like any other business. However, you can start without any product, which is one less obstacle for most people who want to start a business.

You do not need to be a computer expert to run an online business, but you must 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 earn money online, even if you don't have your own product:

Affiliate Programs

Being an affiliate means that you are selling other people's products, and you get a percentage of the sale, or pay a small fee for each person who asks for more information. Most major retailers offer affiliate programs, along with many smaller retailers (with many good products and services). It is not a good idea to try to compete with an established retailer such as Wal-Mart, Target or Circuit City. A better way to earn money is to find a "niche" that serves a smaller group of people, which you can easily reach.

For example, instead of selling sporting goods to everyone, you can start a fishing site that sells canoes and fishing products to people who like freshwater fishing.

A good place to start is Commission Junction (http://www.CJ.com), and you will have an idea of   the products you can offer. Be creative to find your niche, start with something you know a little or enjoy, and in a short time you can earn money online.

Google Adsense

Adsense is a Google.com search engine advertising program (there are other advertising programs it can offer, but for now Google is the largest and most popular). Google will automatically determine which ads are best for your site, based on the theme of each web page. All you have to do is put the code on your website, and Google does the rest.

You can also sell individual ads and determine your own terms and prices. But using a program like Google is simple, and if your group receives many visitors, you can earn a lot of money. Once 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 its visitors.

Write a "How to" booklet

If you don't want to sell other people's products, but you don't have much money to create your own, a simple way to start is to write your own "how to do" brochure. Choose a topic you can write about and start writing. "How to catch freshwater fish" or "How to plan a fishing holiday with a tight budget" are possibilities for the fishing niche mentioned above.

For more information, search for "create information products" or "write electronic books," and you will find many resources.

Again, be creative, there are many problems that people need help with. And offering a good solution can make you earn a lot of money!

Earning money online requires more than just creating a website. You must choose the right products or services. Then Then you must promote your website to enough people so you can earn money. For now, you must have enough ideas to start, even if you don't have a product to sell yet!
