I took a break from the “Making Money Online” Series. But, I was reminded last week by readers that it’s time to get back to it! The purpose of this post is to give new would-be online marketers an overview of some of the most important things they should consider prior to coming online; and to introduce the best straightforward newbie guide available today. So, before we move forward, let’s do a brief review of what’s been covered so far.
So you have this really great idea to start a blog on a particular niche. (Niche: a focused, targetable portion of a market). And, perhaps you even want to make some revenue from AdSense, Clicksor, or other contextual advertising. Hey, that’s great. You’ve put your heart and soul into posting your first few blog posts. No problem. Then, you kind of hit a dry patch… have no clue what else to do! What do you do to keep your blog readers coming back? What does a blogger do to keep their content fresh, and relevant? You’re more than likely happy or satisfied with what you’ve accomplished so far, but now, each time you start a new post, you just aren’t “feeling it?” If you post your so-so blog post, are you afraid your blog will become boring? Maybe you can’t even pinpoint what exactly is wrong, you just “know” it. Maybe you’re distracted or don’t have the time to put together meaty content. Then it’s time to look for some quick solutions! Hopefully I can get you moving in the right direction again!
Hopefully you have carefully considered whether or not starting or operating an online business is right for you. Since you are reading this post, I am going to assume in the affirmative. The next step will be to decide what it is you want to do. As you saw in my last video, there are many industries to choose from. If you have written down what your interests are, next you should do research.
My last blog post was about setting up an online business, expressing your passion, and making the decision to make money online. Just about every type of industry you can think of that might interest you is represented by some type of sales opportunity.
Here’s the problem as I see it. You need money. You have been downsized, laid off, fired, or unemployed. Maybe you just need extra money each month to pay the bills and keep a roof over your head… and oh, yeah, eat. Then someone approaches you with the idea that you ought to try an online business. It might be top tier direct sales, regular direct sales, MLM or network marketing, affiliate marketing, article writing, or something along these lines. Maybe they even suggest doing a bit of everything simultaneously.
