Let me start you in the right direction so you can learn how to really make money online. Let me start off by telling you that most products and ebooks you see for sale that supposedly will teach you how to make money online are pure crap or are nothing but theory. Theory does not pay the bills or put food on the table. What you need to look for are tried and true methods that have been working for others for a long time.
What I am going to reveal in this article are several methods that really make money online. It will be up to you to select one of the methods and actually take action. Without action, nothing will happen.
One if not the best way to really make money online is to sell what is currently selling very well online already. You don't need to reinvent the wheel.
Here are several of the top niches that currently make very good money online.

Now let me discuss what type of surfer you should be aiming to bring to your website. The type of surfer you are looking for is one that is desperate to solve a problem or has already researched a product and is searching for the answer to his or her last few questions before they make the purchase. In other words you are wanting to attract buyers and not researchers.
There are two website models I would recommend. You can either build a site that provides answers to popular questions about products and then send them to make the purchase using an affiliate link or you can build a membership site and provide content to your members.
Joining affiliate programs and earning commissions on sales you refer is the quickest way to start making money online. Going the membership site route will take longer to obtain valuable information and compile it into a product that people will pay for each month but can be much more profitable in the long run.
