You make money online the same way you make money offline, you sell something or give something away for free in hopes of obtaining significant traffic to your website or blog then you sell advertisement space.
Traditionally, you would sell a product or service. On the Internet you could sell a product, service or information in the form of digital content. You could create (acquire) and sell original content (information) in the form of an mp3 download, audio book, ebook, special report, video or podcast to make money online. The Internet allows you to sell and make money online without having to interact in person. Better yet by selling online you could have a store that never closes.
While selling an mp3 download, audio book, ebook, special report, video or podcast is a great way to make money online you could give away the information to entice visitors to frequent your site. By giving something away for free, your site or blogs traffic could increase significantly overtime, making it ideal for companies and other individuals to advertise, ultimately adding another way for you to make money online.
