I can show you how to sell products online for free. Yes, when I say FREE, I do mean free. You will never have to spend a dime on marketing or products and make the money you have always wanted without leaving your home. Think about it, Free, what do you have to lose?
Yes, I know what your thinking. You’re thinking, “It can’t be free.” Well, I promise you, follow along with these suggestions and you could be selling products online in no time and yes, for FREE.
What can I sell?
OK, so you want to make money online and have decided selling products is the route you would like go. Maybe you have a hobby and have built up a small inventory of products and would like to sell them online. Either one of these choices can make you money.
If you don’t have a clue on what you would like to sell but, know you would like to make money online, I have you covered on how to find the right product for you to sell. Follow these simple steps to come up with an idea or niche. A niche is an area of marketing relating to products, services, or interests that appeal to a small, specialized section of the population.
- Interest – This, to me, is the most important part of any business. If you don’t love what your doing every day, then why do it. When your a first time business owner, there are many ups and downs. If you don’t love what your doing, when things’ get rough, you will quit. Quitting is not an option when you love or are passionate about something so, ask yourself these questions:
- What do I love to do in my free time?
- What type of books or magazines do I read?
- What clubs/organizations am I member of?
- Solve Problems – Make a list of 10 or more interest that you came up with in Step 1. Once your list is complete, start narrowing down your options. Go through each interest and think if there are problems that need to be solved for that particular interest. Next, ask yourself, “Can I solve them?” Solving your target audiences problems is what will make your business profitable. People love to make their lives easier. Show them how you can help them do that.
- Research – OK by now, you should have a pretty good idea of what your niche is. Explore online and see what the internet has available on your niche. There is no telling what you will find. Who knows, you may even discover a new niche all together.
Target Audience – Yes You Can Be A Rock Star…
Yes, you can be a Rock Star, all it takes is finding your target audience. All you hear when it comes to Affiliate Marketing is, find your target audience and produce quality informational content. What does that mean exactly?
I believe what separates the Pros from the amateurs is RESEARCH. I would be lying if I said it would be easy, it is NOT. With all good things’ comes hard work.
You know what your niche is going to be so, now you have to identify the problems within your niche. You must get online and research all avenues to find out what your target audience is having problems with in your particular niche.
Most people would say “Everyone is my target audience” but, this isn’t the case when your starting out. You have to narrow down “Everyone” to a smaller population of who want, need, and can afford your solutions(products or services) to their problems.
Time to get creative and build your online store front/website.
The biggest and most exciting part of your business is creating your online store front/website. This is where you are going to stand out from the crowd and put your personality into your niche.
There are many platforms out there to build your website. A lot claim to be free or free for a certain length of time (14 days free, etc). Not all platforms are created equal. Do your research and choose the right one for you.
After many years of research on making money online, I personally chose Wealthy Affiliate. With Wealthy Affiliate I got the training, support, and platform I need to succeed with my online presence and have a working functioning website.

There are plenty of options in Free marketing available. You can post links to certain post on forums, social media sites, and Q&A page of your certain niche. Please be respectful of the rules on all websites and social media platforms. You want to become an authority, not get in trouble by them.
