•Ppc - pay per click advertising. Google, yahoo and others will display relevant ads on their search engines and on relevant websites. When someone clicks on the ad, Google charges the person who set the ad up. The benefits of ppc are that you can get instant results. The downsides are that it does cost money, and if you haven't done your research properly, it can cost you a lot of money, very quickly. I would definitely recommend a training program which steps out how to set up adwords campaigns and which keywords to target, so that you pay the least amount you have to.

•Video Marketing – Videos are becoming very popular among people online. Sites like Youtube have millions of visitors every day. The idea is to make a video about something you are promoting, with interesting or funny content, and attach the webpage to the description box, and at the end of the video. If your video proves to be popular, then some of the people will click on your link to see what you are offering. This can be extremely effective if done correctly.

•Search Engine Rankings – The more “Google friendly” your website is, the faster your website will appear at the top of the list when people search for a relevant keyword. Search engine rankings are good because they are completely free, but they can take a long time to start flowing in.

•Blogging – Create a blog with the topic about the product you are promoting. Blogging useful, relevant information, will give you a better standing in Search engines, and you can post on other peoples blogs in return for posts on yours, giving you more exposure. This is great to do if you have the time, and you have to know your topic well, which is why you should choose to promote a product which you are personally interested in.

•Article writing – Similar to blogging, write articles of around 500 words with good, useful information, with a link back to your website.
As I said these are only a few methods, I have run out of room to list more. If you haven’t started yet, or don’t have the traffic you would like, I would recommend investing in a training program, which will walk you through step by step how to generate traffic, so that you can successfully make money online.
