Money Making From iPhone/Android App Business.
iPhone based smart phones became hot in 2010, 2011,2012 and it continues to grow even bigger in 2013. Its true that demand for iPhone and Android Apps are high in the market.

Social Media Promotion.
Social media tools like Facebook, Twitter are up in the market especially Facebook which crosses 1 billion users. Google introduced Google+ which already reached 500+ million users as of today. That’s the great sign of growth in social media industry. When rightly utilized, you could easily make money from these tools.
- If I simply tell the truth, you have to build a huge number of followers/fans around your account.
- For example, if you are using Twitter you have to build huge number of followers (real human followers) who are all related to a market/topic. The exact count could not be defined but it should be in thousands !
Unless you have huge network, you could not utilize the power of social media tools. Once such a network is ready, its the platform to market your business/products to a wider audience in a particular topic. You could promote affiliate products as well as your own business to that quality audience.
- When people say about social media success, it solely stands the volume and quality (targetness) of your network. So work towards building such huge network with makes profit, otherwise its waste of time.
Digital Product Stores.
Internet users are increasing every day especially “Online Buyers”. The population of online buyer is also increasing and buyers are focusing more on the digital products online. Starting from camera’s, video cams to digital ebooks there are huge demand always in the market.

- I strongly recommend you to join Amazon Affiliate, if you are not already part of it.
Build niche stores and sell digital products from Amazon, that’s the profitable business which works. It takes time to build a niche store but once done, you could repeat the same business model for another niche. Also, don’t try to sell every thing, instead pick a particular digital product, build a niche web site only for that product and promote it.

Blogging is one the strongest recommendation for making money online. Its endless and only thing, you have to keep your blog evolving.

Internet is built around links and content, without content Internet is dead and hence the demand for content is always there.
If you are a beginner, i would recommend you to start a blog especially on your favorite topic. There are numerous blogs coming every day but the question, do all blogs make money ? do all bloggers win ? Only less than 50% of them survey, many loose their temper and quit blogging. Because blogging it takes time, you have to build a blog with high quality information, you have to market it inside-out !
For lazy fellows who want to make money from blogging, the idea is pick up trending topics and blog about it. There you don’t see much competitive and you could drive more traffic easily from search engines like Google, Yahoo !
