For those of you who are thinking that this article is a joke, it is not. The truth is, it is quite possible to get rich online. I am by no means rich, but midway through the month that I am writing this article, I have already banked over $8,500. I expect to break $10,000 by month end. And guess what? It wasn't easy, but it wasn't that hard either. So, I am going to outline, in this article, a simple blueprint that IF you follow it, there is no reason why you can't make a substantial income and then eventually get rich online. Think I'm kidding? Keep reading. Step one is to do a little market research. Find out what people are hungry for, and I don't mean food. Everybody has a problem that needs to be solved. Find out what that problem is and then find a solution for it. If the solution doesn't exist, create a solution. If it does exist, find a way to improve on that solution. The key is to find a market that isn't very competitive. The last thing you want to do is beat your head into a stone wall. There are plenty of markets, or niches out there, that have very little competition. Pounce on them like a dog on a cat. After you have found your hungry market and created your solution, go out and market that solution. There are a number of ways to market yourself online including article writing, pay per click services, solo E-zine ads and on and on. Find some methods of promotion and get the word out. Make sure your product has an affiliate program so that you can recruit others to help you sell it. That is the key. There is only so much you can do on your own. It takes an army to make an army of money. After you have marketed your product for a while and are starting to see some success with it, it's time to begin creating your follow up product, which should be an up sell from your previous product. Promote this product to your past buyers, which you should be creating a list for. After you have done all this, repeat the process for another completely different niche. This way, while your first two products are selling and you have a main product and an up sell product, you can now duplicate this process with yet another product. Just follow the same steps as above. You continue to do this for product after product, niche after niche for as long as you can think of niches to crack open. Eventually, you will see an income the likes of which you have never seen simply because you have so many products out in the marketplace. How do you think Donald Trump makes all his money? He keeps putting up building after building.
