Many books and training courses have been written about how to make money online. In this article we want to give you a couple of things to keep in mind that you must do when it comes to making money on the Internet.

1. Be cautious about the advice that you accept. It is very easy for a person to call themselves an expert and take money from people who do not know any better.

You see this happen all the time! Someone makes a couple of sales and then decides that the market they are going to target is the how to make money market.

There certainly is nothing wrong with being in this market if you know what you’re talking about. However as an Internet marketing newbie yourself you need to be cautious about accepting advice from someone who does not have the credentials to back it up.

If you are unsure about someone’s credentials go to various Internet marketing forums and ask about them. For example you can go to the Warrior Forum and quickly find out whether someone is legitimate or not.

With social networking you can also make friends and see for yourself who is a good person to follow the advice of. One place to do this is with Twitter.com where you can build up a list of followers and watch their updates.

2. The second point we want to make is the majority of the time that you spend online every day should be marketing your business. I’ll even go one step further and say that you should spend a good portion of your time every day blogging.

Search engines love blogs and so do readers. There are many resources available online that can teach you how to blog successfully. For example ProBlogger.Net is one of the best websites online for teaching people how to blog.

I would call this an authority site because the amount of content available to you, and the quality of the content, is outstanding. You can learn everything you need to make money online as a blogger just by following other successful bloggers hanging out at this site.

Blogging allows you to make money in a niche writing about things you enjoy. It also allows you to generate a tremendous amount of free traffic over a long period of time. Therefore having a quality blog with high traffic is an excellent way to sell products, sell advertising, and make money.

In summary this is two things you must do to make money online. Watch out who you accept advice from, learn how to blog, and become an expert at it.
