    Hello guys,

    I'm new here and found this forum very interesting.

    I don't have any online experience yet, but I am open minded and willing to learn anything what it takes to make money online. What skills can I learn to make money online? Can you please advise?:)

    I mean real skills where I could create something and sell, or do some kind of jobs.

    One of the most valuable skills to learn is SEO/SMM.
    You can use it for your own sales or hire yourself out.
    Lots of businesses need someone to do it for them.
    Doesn't matter if you are self taught or get a degree.
    There are free courses and schools that teach SEO.
    Easy to master with practice and in high demand.

    But first look at what skills you already have to offer.
    So many ways to capitalize on what you know.
    SEO is just a way to market those skills.

    Great suggestions Just2EZ. SEO/SMM are great skills to have.

    An important virtue I think, is a strong work ethic. Like anything else, making money online takes some work and effort. You have to be dedicated. :)

    That is a great attitude DR11. You will find a lot of reading, and SEO seems to change quite a bit when it comes to all of the algorithm updates (Google especially). Some things remain the same though, like good content and creating relevant backlinks to your site.

    SMM (Social Media Marketing) is also a great way to get traffic.

    Well, actually in my opinion, every skill you have can be profitable if you know how to make it profitable. Having a certain amount of SEO knowledge is certainly a plus, like mentioned here, but you don't have to limit yourself to only that.

    The best skill you can learn when it comes to internet marketing is how to market online and still earn a profit every time you do so.

    When you know how to market online, you will do really well for years to come.

    Hi,

    There are several skills you will need to learn to actually make money online.
    The key thing is know how these various skills tie up to one another. For a start, you need to learn about Internet Marketing. The extent to which you will make money online is dependent on how well you hjave understood how internet marketing works and knowing how to apply it to what you do online. IM (internet marketing) entails a whole lot of aspects intertwined together, ranging from list building, email marketing, content creation, SEO as so on. Learning how IM works will be your greatest tool.

    Ok guys... Now I'm a bit confused :) It's quite hard for a newbie to begin with something. I started to get a grasp how SEO, now I see that I should start with IM.

    Maybe there is some kind of courses on IM? Or maybe someone from you provides coaching?

    I'm really sick of my job, I want to start working on my own terms!!!

    You can find a lot of online resources and tutorials, but keep in mind that internet marketing is a really wide margin and it takes time to master all the stuff.
