I have been making money online for a while, and it still amazes me to this day of how many people still don’t realize the potential of this bazzilion dollar industry. The number of ways that one can make money online is such a huge margin that I won’t be able to put it all into this one post. But I’ll probably write another ebook later.
Foremost, you have to have the right mindset to start any project and I hate to say it, but there are risks involved. If you want instant gratification then go cut some grass or paint your neighbors fence. Online income normally takes about a minimum of 3 months to develop into it’s full potential to where you can actually have a strategic plan of where you want to take your business. The fact that you’re taking the time to read this is a step in the right direction.
Without further ado take a second to read these influential posts on obtaining the proper mindset to farther your advancement in dot com lifestyle:
- Get a Life! are you ready, able and willing?
- Surround yourself with successful people
- Three reasons why you’re not successful
- You are stupid, lazy and you don’t give a damn explained
- Don’t work in your business, work on it
- Doing what you love is the road to success
Ok, hopefully you have come to the realization that in order to get something done, you have to turn whatever that is you do into a habit. Make it part of your life, enjoy it, offer services and reap the benefits. My motto (don’t know exactly where it came from and don’t feel like using Google) but it goes something like this “If you help enough people get what they want, ultimately you’ll get what you want”.
Making Cash Online
What will make you cash online? Yes cash, since you can withdraw it … if you feel the need in doing so. Tons of people still don’t understand that money can be made online … from essentially nothing! Yes nothing … if you have common computer knowledge then congratulations! If you know what Facebook is, then you may continue … if not; I see no hope.
Anyway, II’m getting some work done here at http://vc804.com – a new coworking spot we have started with a great entrepreneurial vision which has already inspired and helped start up great businesses. Basically it’s a place for like minded individuals to come together. Anyone can rent the space to host events of all sorts and we hold networking, mastermind and all types of meetups regularly.
Sooo … what are some ways you can make money online?
► Consulting and helping individuals and brands become known online to attract sales via social media networking is a great way to earn some cash … and the best thing is that you can charge whatever you want.
► Being paid to look over social media accounts, growth, status updates, and general online presence is a hot industry that isn’t going anywhere. Since there is so much to up keep and it’s more than a full time job to be fluent in all the social media networks that are ever changing.
► Graphics design, SEO (search engine optimization), web content upkeep, and general website customization is an industry of it own. Again, services that can generate income of your choice.
I was reading Microdoted blog post which was freaking awesome, check it out on how people get schooled and crushed when they don’t do their due diligence. Entertaining nevertheless. Although people do need to realize that this stuff makes you cash
► Blogging is a huge industry, but do keep in mind that there are over 78,000 blogs that are started daily. Don’t worry, most of them are n00bs. The earlier you start the better; this will give you leverage over anyone that starts tomorrow. Normally it takes about 6 months for search engine bots to really start crawling your web content in order for you to begin ranking and generating that page rank (PR) you need to separate yourself from the rest of the people starting out. Although unique content is always the king and ranking doesn’t necessarily matter. I know I am contradicting myself here but one must establish an audience and readership in order to get anywhere. Focus on your own unique content and style and the rest will come in no time. Guest blogging and joining services like Web Traffic Control & Buy Sell Ads are some of the ways in obtaining some solid cashflow. On top of that it creates unique content and backlinks to draw even more traffic.
► Selling web proporties on Flippa.com. In the past I have sold some sites via Flippa to make some simple cash … flipping sites is the way to go for anyone that wants to jump into online income right away. You can use Flippa.com to easily buy an online business. You can buy a site and employ the right people to start earning cash, unless you want to buy a simple niche site that you can run yourself. Once you establish an online income generating business you can either hang on to it or simply sell it. Hence the term “flipping” sites.
► Affiliate marketing / Internet marketing is a great way to make lots of cash. There are literally thousands upon thousands of people running ads via multiple networks and traffic sources generating millions in revenue. There are kids going out and buying Ferraris without even being old enough to have licenses. If you are good at creating landing pages, modifying images and have a sense in marketing this would be a great income stream. Obviously all the information can be found online, but we all know how tedious some searches can get. I’d recommend getting a membership for StackThatMoney Forum because this is where you’ll find all the pros and gurus making that kind of cash all in one spot. The best thing about it is that they share their secrets and walkthroughs of their campaigns and much more. You can’t beat this type of knowledge, experience, and help at your fingertips for the price of only 99 bucks a month. Based on my experience, it’s one of the best message boards out there when it comes to affiliate marketing from newbie status to max out pros.
► Use social media to your advantage and leverage proper tweets, updates and messages in order to earn ads via clicks such as PPC (pay per click), PPV (pay per view) & CPA (cost per action). I used be-a-magpie for a while, but now Sponsored Tweets just bought them … which looks like it can be a good thing. I suggest everyone grabbing an account with them. An example on how this works is this (yes, this is an actual example): Britney Spears has over 8.6 million Twitter followers, so Sponsored Tweets posts a tweet for a ‘brand’ perfume product through her profile. When people click, view or purchase the “ad” via Britney’s tweet she gets paid. Some celebrities make $20 thousand and more per tweet advertisements.
► Email lists are the seeds of online income that soar into profits, those are the backend conversations that draw revenue. Have you checked your email today? I’m sure you have. Even though Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ get the message across; the sure way to increase those conversions are via emails since they tend to break through all the “clutter” that is on the Internet and social media in general. That being said, customizing, converting, following up, reviewing, and inviting your visitors and customers via email lists is a job of it own.
► There are number of freelance services like guru.com – elance.com and many many more that anyone can register to either give or receive services. Which means you can start earning money right this second … but wait! Finish reading this first.
► How about coming up with your own services, programs, niches, apps, etc.? That’s a sure way to get exposure, network and potentially land a money pot. Speaking of great services, Dino Dogan is of those individuals that has embraced his mindset and came up with Triberr – the reach multiplier. Amazing service that has been blowing up and people are truly reaping the benefits of this awesome exposure tool. Check it out, and join our Link Minded tribe if you’re interested; our reach is over 1.3 million Twitter followers and growing.
► You can also sell domain names for profit, I know that just about a month ago facelook.com sold for 1.5 million … transactions like this happen every second. People are literally exchanging their domain porfolios all the time, and are constantly waiting for those “money” domains to expire so they can have their go at money shot. Flippa.com and Sedo.com are great services for domain sales.
Psssttt … did you know that some areas and companies are coming up with their own TLDs (top level domains)? Which means, that you’ll be able to have your own extension after a validation process. Look into it, as it can be your calling for that brand or income stream you’ve always wanted. In short, you’re able to create your own TLD; which can be .anything. Just provide the traffic.
This is just a glimpse of some of the income streams that are available, feel free to contact me, or just comment away – I always enjoy connecting with others.
These ideas will definitely bring out the boss in you, as they will extract you into areas and situations of making firm decisions. Remember that knowledge isn’t really power unless it’s applied. I urge you to take initiative and do something you’re passionate about or just keep these thoughts with you. You might be going down a street and see a street sign that’s catchy and can be turned into a domain name … and who knows where life may take you.
