Newbies who have shown interest in making money online mostly get frustrated after a few tries.

If you are one of such newbies, you are certainly not alone in thinking it’s difficult or impossible to make money online.

The reality is that it IS possible to make money online but the truth remains that making money online for newbies is not easy.

If you are a newbie you could lose your mind trying to make money online.

This is because you will discover that:

♠ Making money online doesn’t happen overnight.
♠ Making money online comes with so much more hard work than you envisaged.
♠ Making money online could be frustrating because of lots of scams.
♠ Making money online may require investment in human and material resources for the newbie to break even.

For the above and other reasons, it becomes really frustrating for someone who is just starting to make money online.

However, there are still newbies making money online today without losing their minds.

These are those that have:

♣ Discovered their passion and decided to make money from it.
♣ Discovered a niche that is marketable and profitable.
♣ Decided to defy all odds and focus on the goals they have set until success is achieved.
♣ Discovered and developed an effective system of ensuring the delivery of value to the prospective customers.
♣ Discovered who their audience/customers are and developed the product/service that will meet the needs of the customers.

Indeed, for a newbie to start making money online, he/she must have the mindset of success. If he/she doesn’t believe that he can make it then there is no point wasting time.

Or, he/she should probably go back to 9-5 job!

Apart from the mindset of making it online, there must be that determination to pay the “price” of success. There is no short cut to succeeding online.

You have to pay the price by making physical, mental, financial and social investment needed for success.

And when you do, making money online can be easy for you… as easy as A B C!

Below are 7 extremely powerful tips to help newbies who are planning to make money:

1. Believe in yourself

First off, as a newbie, you should have a recheck on your mindset. You must have the strong conviction that making money online is now what you have decided to do.

And you should not only believe it’s possible but also that if others have made it, you can make it too.

That’s very important to re-program your mind to.

There are so many success stories all over, despite the equally many stories of failures. As a newbie, it’s up to you which you want to believe and imbibe.

If you are determined to succeed and believe in yourself, success will definitely be yours. It will just be a matter of time and a matter of doing more of the right things online.

2. Identify your strong points

You should identify your areas of strength and weakness on what you can offer to your audience.

If you can write, you must reassess your strong areas of writing and be sure to convert same into valuable product/service for your clients and audience.

If you can program, then do the same – create a valuable program or product that your clients and audience will love and pay money for.

3. Make adequate preparations before you start

You must do the necessary research, read the related materials, and gather the necessary financial, intellectual and material arsenal before you begin.

Trying to make money online is like any other field of endeavor – you need to learn what needs to be learnt. If you don’t have enough knowledge in any aspect of what you want to do, dedicate some time to learning before you get started.

Little knowledge is dangerous and can lead you to losing a lot of money and wasting time in the process. Thankfully lots of what you need to learn is readily available, mostly for free.

4. See your blog/website as a business

If you must make money online then you must take your online activities seriously. It should be treated as a business and not a past time.

You need to plan your activities, take the needed actions and continuously make analysis for better decision making.

Those who take their online businesses seriously enjoy the rewards more than those who don’t.

5. Provide solution to the audience

If you truly want to make money online as a newbie then you should focus on the audience. Your business should be built around your customers.

Identify what your customers need and provide them with the product or service that solves their problem. If you continuously address the pain-points of your customers/audience then you will continuously be rewarded.

6. Always collaborate with others

collaborate

It’s not advisable to try to make money online as a newbie on your own. It’s possible but it will be much harder.

You need mentors and influences to advise and guide you along the way. Find these experts and get to know them, study what they do, and they would make the journey simpler for you.

Similarly, online tasks that would make you start earning money could be overwhelming at times. In this case, you will need to collaborate with others to save time, cost and energy.

You can outsource content, social media promotions, and other similar activities that could really get you making money online.

7. Choose the right monetization method

When you are planning to make money online, there is need to choose the right monetization method or choose what you are going to sell and how.

It is good that there are many options to choose or combine. For example, one of the best ways I am making money online right now is Affiliate Marketing. Specifically I am making money easily with Kingged.com’s 30 Days To Making Money Online program. It’s working very well for me and I recommend it to everyone.

When choosing a monetization method, you should follow these criteria: the method must always provide you with consistent income, a reasonable degree of control, and the flexibility of adjustment.

Conclusively

As a newbie, you CAN make money online without losing your mind. What is important is to have the right mindset, make the right sacrifices, collaborate with the right people, access the necessary tools and apply the right monetization systems.

So, whether you have decided to sell your own product, run sponsored ads on your website, freelance your writing skills, offer specialized services, or utilize contextual ads like AdSense, etc., to make money online, ensure that you are prepared to put in the needed effort and provide value to the customer.

  1. A great read Steven, especially for a complete newbie like myself. I too am working through the 30 days to making money program, a lot to take in but I will get there.

    Today I have picked my first product to dip my toes in as an affiliate. I have ordered some keyword research to be done and I’m looking in to outsourcing article writing.

    I wish you every success

  2. Hi Steven

    Great article about making money online.

    My problem when I first started trying to make money online was jumping from one thing to another if something didn’t work right away.

    When I started devoting more time and effort into just one specific niche, things started to come around and I finally started to make money online.

    Have a good day

  3. Hey Steven,

    A great piece for newbies I must say. These 7 tips are hands-on and they they truly can help newbies make money online.

    It is important to add that without the 3D’s discipline, dedication and determination, making money online for a newbie would just be mere fantasy!

  4. Hey Steven,

    Point number 5 is very crucial and just about every newbie must have that in mind before starting.

    If a business doesn’t solve a problem to its audience, it would be difficult to reward it.

    So, every newbie that must gain traction with their business must be ready to identify with the problem of the prospect. Then, provide a solution via the product or service offered!

  5. Hello Stephen,

    You gave really good tips in this article.

    You are right when you said apart from the mindset of making it online, there must be that determination to pay the “price” of success.

    Determination is key when things are not yet working for you online. Without determination, it’s easy to give up.

  6. Hi Steven,
    Unfortunately, it takes money to make money is a true expression. Outsourcing costs. I clicked the King, 30 Days to Making Money Program, which costs.
    These are great tips to help newbies make money online. However, newbies often don’t have money to spend on their blogs.

  7. Indeed, every newbie needs information to help him/her make money online.

    However, putting those tips into action will make the difference.

    From the tips discussed in this post, it is clear that the newbie can put into practice what has been stated to make money online.

    I agree with the 7 tips because they are quite practical!

  8. Making money online should be practical. Newbies must understand this. There is need to define the needs of the audience, and then provide value to meet those needs.

    Making money is rewarding the marketer for the value created and shared. So, newbies must understand the place of value when trying to make money online.

    Nevertheless, I concur with the details of this post!

  9. Hi Steven,

    As others have said in the comments here, these 7 tips look really powerful for newbies who want to make money online.

    But I think they are also applicable for those who already know how to make money online, not just for newbies.

    For example, even those who are established bloggers or Internet marketers can learn from some of these tips, to improve their online money making abilities.

    My best tip is #4, to see one’s blog/website as a business, not just as a hobby.

    When we take our blog or website as a business, we treat it better and can get more results from it.

  10. Very good article Steven!

    Mindset is the number one thing that prevent most people from having success.

    Some people just think that success is something that happen to other people and not them or they doubt that they have what it takes to have success.

    The best thing a newbie can do right off the bat is make sure they have the right mindset (and it’s ongoing process).

    Next they want to make sure they get the right business/marketing training.

    Both are crucial for success.

  11. These are excellent tips-I wish I had read this when I first got online…

    I just kinda jumped in without knowing what I was doing, without following anyone, and def no guidance! I ended up researching a few things, and finally got a mentor, and some tools to help.

    And I most def agree get a mentor or someone to guide you along the way, otherwise you may be stuck for a while!!

    Thanks for sharing these tips!! 😀

    Have a great day!!

  12. Newbies trying to make money online need to be highly motivated. It becomes necessary to give them doses of inspirational pills every now and then to make success.

    It is never out of place to advice on setting goals and making plans.

    This will go a long way to inspire success. I acknowledge the tips shared here and I agree with them completely!

  13. Hey Steven,

    The number one thing I ignored when getting into Internet business is mentorship. I had the idea that I knew everything because I read a few books and I vaguely listened to the leaders in my industry. I complicated the heck out of what I needed to do.

    We are taught at a young age that you need to work hard to get what you want, and this list of 7 tips is quite simple. That is where that notion of time = money comes in, because when we see something like this, we automatically wonder what is being held back.

    What’s his secret, what is he not telling us?

    Because anyone can implement one of these tips in a few hours. And I think that is where the struggle comes in.

    You will make money if you follow these tips. You don’t need to learn everything about online business. All you need to do is implement these 7 tips each day.

    Work on your mind, assess your strong and weak points and put more emphasis on the strong, read up on what you are working on and maybe gain ideas for new opportunity.

    Create content on a platform where your customers can consistently find you, give solutions to the problems your customers give you, get help and give help, and finally understand that if you want to make money you need to sell something.

    Each of these are simple concepts and for many of us they can be done quickly. Money will come as long as we don’t overcomplicate the system.

  14. Hi Steven,

    Thanks for these wonderful tips.

    I agree they are very powerful tips and can help newbies and even experienced people make more money online.

    The best for me is that of providing solutions to peoples’ problems.

    People who get rich online and even offline are those who look for problems and solve them, whether by creating products that solve problems and selling them.

  15. Hi Steven,

    This post about making money online is nothing but the truth. All the points you raised are unique but I find the fifth one the most striking.

    Blogging is all about creating value. You could spend the whole day promoting your blog or churning out content massively and not make a dime if you’re not providing any value. Readers are smart and they know it when they see a blog that’s providing real value.

    When i first started blogging, i did it for the fun of it but I didn’t get good results. However, after my writing first free ebook, my blog started gaining some traction, and has positioned me to earn more.

    • Hey Hafiz,

      Yes, value proposition is important to attract and keep the target audience.

      Without value in the service, content or product presented, it sure would be difficult for newbies to make money online or offline.

      Thanks for lending your voice to this discussion. It is highly appreciated!

  16. Hey Steven,

    You made some great points here.

    Yes it’s a challenge when it comes to making money online. Especially for a newbie, but by following these tips, it should become less challenging and more fun in a way.

    One thing I like to add to #6 is if you have a blog to network with other bloggers in similar niches. This has really helped me along my journey when it came to traffic, leads and sales. By doing this you also build social proof and authority.

    Thanks for sharing Steven!

    • Hi Sherman,

      Thanks for leaving your contribution on this discussion. Yes, networking with other bloggers that run niches similar to those we have is a good strategy for lead generation and increased traction.

      The value of the networking – whether with influencers or with bloggers in the same value would determine the level of success to be attained!

  17. Hi,

    Making money online is the end of the story, it starts and ends with your online audience and how you approach them to provide what they need.

    Ultimately, as a newbie online money maker, your goal is to know which niche market you will target, reach the audience of this niche , and then funnel as much of that audience as possible back to your website business where they can buy your recommended products.

    All my best,
    Omar

  18. Agreed, making money doesn’t happen overnight, that’s something most new bloggers fail to realize. One can’t blame them much, the probloggers sometimes portray it to be so, “quick and fast cash”.

    Scam is on the rise, without great care, one’s investment could end up in the hands of the wrong person. Like you said, collaborating with the right people does matter. The post is and eye opener, thanks for sharing.

  20. Hello Steven,

    Newbies can really benefit from this article. When you first get the idea to make money online people just automatically think it is easy. It’s a lot of hard work and finding your niche is so important. I think many people end up going around in circles because they haven’t truly figured out what they really want to do. All they know is they want to make money online and sadly that isn’t enough.

    Thanks for sharing this with us!
