You can actually start making sums of money online starting with your free email address; this you can get from yahoo.com, Google mail, hot mail etc. In the light of this, I have decided to list and explain seven (7) steps that you can take right now, using a free email account to start making money online.
1. FIND A MARKET
First, you need to find a market place i.e. the group/category of people that will be your target audience online. Find out their problems and then, proffer a solution to them so that the solutions you provide will be the answers to their problems.
You have to devise a means of getting information from your prospective clients, but first of all, you need to know what questions they ask, what problems they face and try to get solutions for them.
HOW TO FIND A MARKET
To do this, on your computer screen, type in Google on the browse address bar or yahoo etc. when the site opens, type in a word or the product you want to market, then check the page very well to see how many people that are looking for that product.
