Online Income

Seems everyone wants the answer to the instant online income question.

After spending the last 20 years online in one form or another I can honestly say that there has never been another time that allowed us to make money so easy as there is right now on the Internet. Now having said that, I must also say that it is not as easy as some have come to believe.

I am not going to go through all the ways you can make money online, there are a thousand blogs out there that will do that for you. If you want a real condensed list I would recommend this Shoemoney video.

What I wanted to do today is tell you one thing. Keep an open mind.

Just because someone said this way or that way was good or bad is not enough reason to make your mind up on a system. And be willing to give things a second try. Something that did not fit you 2 years ago may now be a perfect match. As your time online increases and your knowledge evolves so do some of the systems you have experimented with in the past.

If you are really interested in online income, do not take things at face value and give them just 10 minutes of your time. There are no instant fixes. Yes, there are people who have had instant success, but most of those are cases that can not be duplicated due to a lot of factors. The word WORK should not be just another 4 letter word. But try to find the type of work that fits you, your style and your schedule.

Keep an open mind, every now and then go back and revisit things that you have looked at in the past.

You never know, that perfect online income source may be something you have overlooked or even tried before!

Baseball Analogy of Blogging

I spend more time reading blogs than I do blogging. After some of the conversations lately I realized that there is an excellent Baseball analogy that fits blogging.

“Get em on, get em over, get em in”

The basic baseball principle is that you do not need Home Runs to win the game, you just need consistency in your hitting and base running, and more bloggers need to understand this formula.

Let’s break it down.

“Get em on” – Very simple, you can not score a run without getting a man on base. Quit swinging for the fence every time. And not every runner will convert to a score, just like every visitor will not convert to a sale. But, if you don’t get them in place, you have no chance. Maybe instead of spending all your energy on being #1 with a keyword or keyword phrase you should just work at being in the Top 10 or 20.

“Get em over” – Ok, you got a runner on first base, now ya just got to move them over one base at a time, no big feat needed. Same thing blogging. Once you have the visitor to your site, you have to get them in place to convert whatever it is you are trying to convert. Page layout and navigation play a big role here. If your site is too cluttered or confusing, how can you guide the visitor where you want them to be?

“Get em in” – The last leg of the journey. You got them on base, you moved them over, now just get them across home plate. Whatever your objective is, it has to be laid out in a manner that makes someone want to”go for it”. Are your products easily accessible? Did you explain what they needed to know to want to buy in to your product?

Are you just swinging for the fence?

Maybe it’s time to take it one step at a time.

  • Get ’em on
  • Get ’em over
  • Get ’em in
