Today with the extreme stress in the work environment many people are looking to start their own home based business. Especially since two of the big advantages are that you do not have to answer to a boss or commute in heavy traffic to work.

However, with the amount of scams on the internet which promise instant wealth many people end up spending thousands of dollars and give up feeling disillusioned. When I first started with my online business I had a dream. Unfortunately, the first year and a half was very rough. I spent a lot of money in investing in my internet marketing education with very little results to show for it. I nearly quit because I was extremely frustrated. Occasionally I made my first decent profits and up until that happened I did not believe that you could earn a living on the internet.

In this article I would like to share with you some secrets that will help you to earn a decent living online. The first is that you need to learn how to choose a profitable niche market. This forms the basis of your business. Get this wrong and you will not be able to monetize your web site.

You need to learn how to create your own products, sales letters and become very good at copywriting. When you first start out you can make money with affiliate programs as you learn. However, if you want to earn a serious income you need to be able to create your own products as this will give you leverage in the market. You can do joint ventures and also recruit other affiliates to sell your products. If you do not have some of the important skills like writing your own sales letters I suggest that you outsource it to other people. You can easily hire people on sites like Elance.

Other skills that are very important are to build your own email list. You need to develop loyal customers that you can sell to over and over again. Also learn how to drive significant amounts of targeted traffic to your web site as this is the lifeblood of your business.
