“How can I earn some extra money online?”
There was more to the question of course such as how they were leery of many of the financial promises online, and needed the extra money to do things around their house along with other projects. And it’s GOOD they were leery of many of the pitches online.
Because the facts are it’s rarely as easy as it sounds.
No matter what you do, you will be investing a lot of time and work. And the good news is…it’s worth it if you’re willing to do what it takes.
The problem with answering a question like this quickly is it doesn’t include all the information you need.
There are a LOT of ways to earn an extra $1,000 a month online.
There are people right now who do it with blogging, Kindle publishing, Clickbank ebooks, affiliate marketing, Youtube videos, personal tutoring, consulting local businesses, eBay, life coaching, and even photography.
I know people who earn $1,000 or more per month in ALL the above.
And that’s just getting warmed up. We could probably spend the rest of the week adding to this list and talking about people we know who are doing it.
Today isn’t a question of whether you can do it or not. You can. There are literally too many opportunities available to us today. It causes overwhelm and people spin their wheels.
So here’s a better way to look at the question…
“What are you WILLING to do make money online?”
Let’s take it even further…
“What are you willing to keep doing even if it takes longer to succeed than you expected at first?”
And one more question I would ask…
“What skills do you have that we could take advantage of online?”
For example, if you’ve practiced your writing and you enjoy writing, then we’d look at a direction such as blogging, article marketing, writing Kindle books, copywriting, creating your own ebooks, ghostwriting, etc.
If you LOVE video and can’t get enough of it, then obviously it’s going to be about things like Youtube, editing videos for others, publishing videos for local businesses, video blogging, selling royalty-free videos for others to use, etc.
If you’re a details oriented person who enjoys helping others, then we could consider directions such as becoming a virtual assistant, online tutoring, managing outsourcing for others, etc.
Most of the clients I personally work with are in some type of publishing business. They publish ebooks, courses, software, consulting, coaching, copywriting, and even do full done-for-you services in their niche (several clients run full agencies where they do the PPC, SEO, and social marketing for a specific industry of business owners).
They’re either passionate about the subject or they have a years of previous experience in their subject. Either way, they have a lot of information they can share with their audience. And someone who is truly passionate can find a way to get over the experience gap with study and interviewing top experts in the market. You don’t have to know “everything about the subject” to publish content.
Could you imagine anyone knowing EVERYTHING about internet marketing…including being an expert at every way to make money online? That’s not going to happen.
All I can share with you is what my clients and I have done to create million dollar businesses for the past 16 years online.
And the best way to get started with publishing your own or other people’s infoproducts online is with the A-to-Z Internet Blueprints available here:
If you’re serious about earning a part-time or full-time income online with publishing your own products, you need this system. It even comes with a 19 page Blueprints manual full of step-by-step checklists.
Please remember that while I can guarantee your money back for 90 days if it’s not right for you, no one can guarantee you a successful business online. All business involves risk. And it also requires you to be willing to do what it takes to make it work long-term.
