Use tools like Wordtracker and a Google's free keyword tool to find keyword phrases that are relevant to your business.

Tip # 3 – Create a blog
Yes it's blogging for dollars. The web is all about content content. Nowadays it's really easy to set up your blog. You do not even need to make and host a website. Tools such as Blogger and WordPress allow you to blog as much as you want for free.
Tip # 4 – Write, write, write

Tip # 5 – Find affiliate products to promote and make money with
As an affiliate all you have to do is promote a merchant's products or services. You do not have to stock inventory, and you do not have to perform the services. All you have to do is send your website visitors to the merchant site. If your referred customer manages to make a purchase, then you will be credited with the commission. Commissions can range anywhere from 10% to 75% of the total selling price. There are people making hundreds of thousands of dollars with affiliate marketing.
