Many bloggers just want to share their message with the world. These are typically hobbyists or non-profit organizations. Hobbyists can sometimes monetize their blog if they write consistently and develop a following.
Non-profits have a message to share with the world and usually want to attract people to their cause.
Because this website is devoted to helping you make money on line, I will assume you are here because you want to make money.
One of the attractions of internet marketing is you can create a business while working part time. Most of us have to work full time just to pay the bills. It takes time to make any business profitable. It can often take six months for a new website to start to gain traction with the search engines. There are things you can do to speed up the process but the most important thing you must do is to know your audience and create a website that interests them.
If you can only work five hours per week, at least be consistent. Work on the things that make you money. Avoid busy work. Don’t think you are doing productive work when you are studying how to make money on line.
More time equals more growth. It should be obvious but it needs to be emphasized. If you can only work 5 hours a week, it may take ten years to create a retirement income. If you can work 20 hours per week you can probably retire in a year. The key is to be consistent and never quit. A website that has new content every day, gets Google’s attention a lot faster than one that has a new blog post once a week.
Are you a lazy blogger or an active one? If you do not take your website seriously, you are seriously reducing your chances of success. Yes, you can promote membership sites that charge a monthly subscription and pay you a monthly commission. You can find a popular niche and build a website that makes repeated sales. You can make money as a lazy blogger, but you can create a fortune as an internet marketing professional.
$5/day with Adsense or $500/day with affiliate marketing?
Any extra $150/month can make a big difference in many people’s lives. Adsense provides an evergreen income, but it takes a lot of traffic to make a serious money. Affiliate marketing can be slow to take off, but multiple affiliate income streams and a big opt-in list can create a comfortable retirement income. Of course, you can do both.
Personally, I prefer to control what ads my visitors see. I have never used Adsense.
Keeping your books and studying how to make money on the internet will not produce income. Fresh content on your website produces income. Adding people to your opt-in list creates income.
I can help you learn the basics of internet marketing, but we won’t make any money till we put what we learn into action. When you join me at Wealthy Affiliates, we can both make money. Wealthy Affiliates University is the best, most ethical source of information about internet marketing I have found. You can start for free When you complete the first free lesson, you will have you first WordPress website up and you will know the fundamentals of how to promote it. WAU is #1 when it comes to helping you discover internet marketing.
There are many opportunities to create Joint Ventures. Some business models pay you based on the sales volume of your team. Most affiliate programs pay you straight commissions based on the sales you generate. Look for affiliate programs that generate repeat sales and pay you overtime as customer you brought to affiliate makes repeat purchases.
Amazon pays you on everything a customer buys during their visit and for a few days after that first visit. Then Amazon takes you customer, and you with not get income based on repeat sales. Wealthy Affiliate pays you commissions as long as the customer you brought them remains a member. Many people do very well as an Amazon affiliate, but commissions on subscriptions forever is a better business model for the affiliate distributor.
It is also why I believe in building teams and helping my team members be successful. Working together is the best.
An expert internet marketer (IM) can create an unlimited, every growing income. An IM can work from anywhere there is a phone and an internet connection. You don’t need to stock inventory and you don’t need employees. Outsource the drudge work like bookkeeping and record keeping. An internet marketing business is inexpensive to start and has a low overhead. It also can continue to provide you income with minimum effort. Once a website is setup and generating traffic it will continue to pay with minimum attention.
Anyone with determination can become an internet marketer. Creating a web page or a blog post is as easy as using a typewriter. If you cannot set up your website, you can hirer it done for less than the cost of a refrigerator.
Some are able to save and invest and have a comfortable retirement. I was one of the lucky minority to have worked for a company that provided a good retirement plan.
Most are not so fortunate.
Create your own business that will provide you a recurring income. That is an income that will keep coming in whether you can work or not.
There are many approaches to starting a business. Many people parlay a hobby into a business. There are many successful people who have started there business in a spare room or even a dedicated corner of a room.
Personally, I want to be able to work from anywhere I have an internet connection and a phone.
I want a businesses I can develop working a few hours a week, because I want to be able spend time with my family and do other things I believe are important. Of course, the more time we can devote to business, the faster it will grow, but most people have to work their business around their family and their job.
So, I look for inexpensive ways to start a business. It must be something most people can afford and something they can build while working part time. In short, what I do must be something those who join me can do. It is called business duplication.
That seems like a good business model to me, but it is only for people who are willing to learn something new and who are not afraid of computers. There is a saying that, “complexity is the enemy of success.”, and this sound pretty complicated.
Fortunately, anyone can learn to create a WordPress website. You just need good instruction. To build your business you need to:
It will take a lot of work and consistent effort, but if you can work on your business 10 hours a week you can retire within five years.
What are the significance of words like purpose, mission, vision, adaptability, capability and resilience in your life?
Think about it a minute. Without purpose you are adrift on the River of Life. A written mission statement helps us define our purpose, and we must make sure we stay on course. Life has many ways of steering us into the eddies. We need to know when to paddle to bring our life back to achieving our purpose.
The only thing we can depend on is change. The River will not always be smooth. We will deal with rapids in our life. You can face the rapids with fear or you can see those rough waters as a challenge and an opportunity for adventure. Know what you want to accomplish in the next year, 2 years and longer. A big wave surfer can play with a wave that could kill a beginner. The more capability we have the more adaptable we will be, and adaptability is key to creating resilience in our lives.Continue reading
