Online Residual Income

More and more I am hearing this in discussions offline, “how can I earn online income?”.

One of the mistakes I think a lot of people are making is that they are looking for ways to make money online and getting frustrated because they do not have the knowledge it takes to pull it off. But, if they would just turn the equation around, the answer would come to them a lot easier.

Don’t try to find a way to make money online, look at what you have a passion for, and turn that into an income stream. 

Same thing applies to the term “Niche” ! That term has become a key element in making profitable blogs and websites, but it can also be a stumbling block. The Niche you need is not of a product or item, it is your personal Niche ! 

Blogging can be learned, but your personal niche and passion are what drives you and makes you unique, and in the online world, being unique and driven can be the difference in success and failure.

Ask yourself what you are good at, and what you love, that is what you should be researching.

If you are going to be spending your extra time online at least make it in an area that you really enjoy!

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!

Make Money Online

Did that get your attention?

Not sure what it says about us, but key that headline into Google and you get 313,000,000 results. Yes, that’s 313 Million.

Everybody says they hate the get rich quick schemes, yet someone is digging for them and trying them.

Anyway, if you want to get rich quick, I certainly can not help you, if I could, I would and I would be rich myself. However, I may be able to help you at least pay for your hosting and buy dinner out.

I work on a site for a customer that had these numbers last month.

287 unique visitors, $52 of income.

Now, I realize that is not very much money. However, if you do that twice you can get a check for over $100 every month. And in my book $100 is worth something.

287 visitors is an average of 9 visitors a day, THAT IS ALL, 9.

C’mon, how hard can that be? And the total size of the site is 14 pages. Oh yeah, static pages, not a blog, just a good ol’ basic 14 page website. We have not changed ANYTHING in over a year.

Here is my punch list for this site.

  1. Focused Content – One subject, very little variance. They call this a “niche site” now, we used to call it a “small vertical market”.
  2. Google Adsense. – 2 Ad Units. One 336×280 above the fold, one 336×280 at the very bottom of the page, right after the last piece of content. The colors used are blended into the site, and each ad title is dark blue. Always use a blue because people still tend to thing a blue underline is a link.
  3. Sitemap. – Real simple. I use GSiteCrawler to build and upload the sitemap. Submitted to Google and Yahoo using their respective web pages.
  4. Analytics. – I like Google Analytics, it’s simple, web based and I can have all my accounts at my fingertips.

Summary:

Always remember the old KISS rule, Keep It Simple, Stupid, or maybe now it should be Keep It Search Simple.
