Making a Successful Website
First let me start by saying that I am a beginner myself, and I will always be
learning about the best way to make money online, until I have millions of
dollars in the bank, at which point I probably won’t have time to write e-books
Having said that, I have learned a lot in the last few years, about the way that
truly successful people go about building a business online.
This chapter is about finding a product to sell, and it is quite an important thing
to get right, if you want to make a lot of money online, cause people don’t want
to buy an inferior, unoriginal product or service.
I can’t give you an idea for a product of your own to sell, but I could suggest that
you find a way to take products that already exist, and buy them cheap, (or

The point is, you should make sure it’s a quality product, that there is a high
demand for it, that there are many people who wouldn’t hesitate to buy it, and if
it’s an affiliate product, then you should make sure you get a decent
Quality is the key, and if you wouldn’t try to sell it to your friends and family, then
you shouldn’t try to sell it to other people.
