The number of people who want to make money online is exploding. And, it totally makes sense why. With almost 10% unemployment and a very slow economy, “online” looks like a good place to be. Unfortunately, many of the people who are flocking to the online world are going to be sorely disappointed. They don’t have to be, however. There are tried and true ways of making a good income online. Here’s one.
The internet thrives on content. Some of that content is video and audio, but most is text. That is, it is written. You see, most people discover websites through search engines, which means they use phrases they type into search engines and the results lead them to various pages. The way that Google “tells” what a given web page is about is by the text. So, text, that is the content of a web page, is super important. Not only is the text important, but the frequency that it’s updated is one of the most important metrics Google and other search engines use to rank pages in search results.
This all boils down to the fact that webmasters, business owners, and entrepreneurs who make money through the internet need a constant supply of content. And they need a lot of it. (There are millions upon millions of web pages.)
Here’s where you come in.
One of the best ways to start making money online is to provide this content. Here’s how you do that.
You basically have a few options. You can
- Sell content directly to a particular internet marketer
- Write content that you think will be useful and sell it to several internet marketers
Now, which way do you think you’re going to make the most money? Selling to one person or selling the same thing to several people? Obviously, selling the same thing to several people.
I’m not talking about anything unethical, though. I’m talking about what are called “private label rights”.
When you go to your local supermarket and buy the house brand of spaghetti sauce you can be pretty sure that your supermarket doesn’t have a factory somewhere making spaghetti sauce. They buy it from a factory owned by a separate business and slap their label on it. As a matter of fact, that factory probably sells spaghetti sauce to several distributors.
Those are private label rights. The supermarket is not only buying the spaghetti sauce, but they’re also buying the right to call it their own. A huge amount of modern business is done this way.
You can sell content as private label rights. And it’s one of the best ways to get started online.
