Make Money off the InternetEarn money with the Internet
When I first began making money on the Internet
This page is intended to tell you the history of how I first began to make money on the Internet. When you already know my history and want to begin your own trip to make money by putting your wisdom into selling your wisdom in the form of electronic items sold via a weblog and e-mail lists on-line, go straight to the How to Launch page.
To have a quick history of what this blogs has to offer, go to the overview page. The work I've done over the last few years has helped me generate over a million bucks from the Internet. I also used the gains from my blogs store to buy real estate investments, a all-new BMW automobile, and to help my family.
As my shop is 100% on-line, I often wrap up my notebook, get on a flight and go around the globe. At home I spent a few working days on my laptops in cafés, and the remainder of the days I do what I want, playing golf, having dinner with my buddies, ice hockey, watching films, working on new ventures, going out into the countryside and sometimes nothing at all.
When you build the right kind of Internet commerce deal, you win monetary liberty and timeliness that most individuals only daydream of, especially if you currently have a sideline occupation that you scorn. As I see it, the ideal position is to own a website shop that will generate more than enough money to make a livelihood, that will run without you or require very little maintenance, so that you can go travelling and do other things, and there is work that you can do if you want, it's enjoyable and worthwhile (because if you're like me, life in an eternal vacation will get quite dull after all!).
In 1998, I went live for the first of my life as a bachelor of arts at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. A few years I spend concentrating on my study while playing in my free hours with the still very young Internet. It happened in the day of on-line chats, news groups and news groups and the beginning of the dot-com booms (crazy internet businesses getting massive ratings on the exchange).
Back then I was playing a deck of playing cards named Magic: The Geathering (it's competetive like playing games, but with drakes and fairies and goblins, etc). Finally, I have added a commercial forums to the site so folks can buy, sells and exchange tickets. It immediately increased my visitor numbers and made my website return every single night to exchange maps.
Even though my website wasn't gigantic - at best I had about 500 hits a night - I could earn some money with it. This site is my first ever on-line hit. Not enough money to live on but as a college kid who lived with my mom and dad it was more than I needed.
I got tired of gambling after a few years of operating my Magic site and bought the site for $13,000 to one of the folks who were trading in my Forums. That brought some money for investing in a new venture (and moving out of my parents' house!).
What I wanted was a genuine company with genuine prospects for future development. about a young man who was a graduate in economics at Harvard. Though he was registered for college, he most of the times stayed in his residence where he ran an editorial team. He has written a number of paper articles for US college and college applicants.
Using this tale as an inspirational source, I started my own editorial services in Australia. Australia's university has no entry conditions like the USA, but I saw a need in the industry that I thought was possible. My counterparts were often Asian or Middle Eastern English second languages internationals.
Most of the foreigners found it difficult to communicate in English, especially in an academical setting. Throughout my editorial services I concentrated on this group of individuals who needed to edit and correct their essay and gave me feed-back on how to spell better AE. The name of my company was BetterEdit.com.
Even though the company began gradually, a small faithful clientele finally began to grow. I have employed contractual writers for the editorial work, mostly professorial or doctoral candidates from colleges. In order to boost the company, I used the Internet and placed my poster at the campus. BetterEdit, after several years of sluggish, continuous expansion, finally managed to break through $100,000 in one year.
This was a major landmark for the company, and means that I had a full-time salary after I assumed the cost. I' d started a great life-style company. Back in 2004, a boyfriend proposed that I launch a blogs to help boost the editorial team. so I did some research.
Although I've read about blogging, I still haven't understood what makes a Blog different from a regular website. My best way to always get to know each other is by experimentation, so I launched a blogsite on the BetterEdit.com website. I' ve been blogging BetterEdit for, like, three month. It was hard for me to talk about editorial - it is a somewhat dull theme (in my opinion!).
It was a pleasure to keep blogs, but about another topic. Well, I figured I'd get a new blogs that would focus on something I enjoyed...repreneurship. I didn't know at the onset that my blogs would become my primary activity and totally transform my lifestyle, increasing my revenue to over a million bucks.
Originally I considered my blogs as a pastime and had one goal: to take so much of my seven years of entrepreneurial experiences and post them on my blogs. First, I was writing every single working day, creating Tutorials, updating about how my editorial office was doing, and just letting myself be inspired with a blogs.
Also, I spend a lot of my free online gaming day going to other blogging sites in my alcove, making commentaries and getting to know other users via e-mail and chats. Gradually, but certainly, I was building a reading community, and although I didn't make any money with it, I knew there was an opportunity. Todd: I began sponsoring an e-book that someone else typed that was paying me 50% commission for every sell I made.
As with my Magic Deck website, I also sell banners on my blogs. I' ve also tried Google AdSense, an ad system that many blogs use to make good money. Made about $1 a months and realised AdSense wouldn't be my way to benefit for this blogs.
With those techniques, well the first two anyway, I was able to increase my monthly revenue to about $1,000 a year after I spent a year posting on my blogs. There was no constant revenue, so I still didn't see my blogs as my primary line of work, but I loved it. I' m an enthusiastic Internet marketer, buy classes, read and learn how other folks make money on-line.
Soon it became clear that the big money was made by those who concentrated on e-mail advertising (with a "list" of those to whom you can e-mail). I launched my first e-mail newsletters in January 2006. Personally, I would offer suggestions for how to increase your blog's popularity by sending one e-mail a month.
Here you can find my early blogs Traffic Tips emails. During 2006, I concentrated on gaining more readership for my blogs, expanding my e-mail list and making more money with affilate advertising and sponsoring. Well, I decide to divest my editorial work. About six month after finding a purchaser, the deal was closed in June (you can see how I bought my store for $100,000 for more details).
Since then I made the choice to concentrate only on my own business of blogging. My goal was to educate folks on how to make money from running albums using what I had done in the last two years to achieve an $5,000 a monthly mean. At that time, my bloodlog only took a few working days a week to maintain, so I thought this type of on-line store would attract a large number of visitors.
My first course was started, I started my first course, Mastermind and 400 persons registered for the first round of the course. Encouraged my programme with my blogs readers, my e-mail newsletters and paid 50% affiliate fee for all purchases they had made. Lots of other Blogger advertised my course, which was helpful to me to get many new contacts.
Once the dusts cleared, I made $15,000 a months from my blogshop. I bought a new automobile and my first home thanks to the revenue from the sale of my editorial shop and the trust in the constant liquidity from my blogshop. The first year I made over $100,000 from blogs was 2007, two years after I started my blogs.
Ever since the start of my first course I have been running my own blogs and developing more trainingsolutions. Until 2009, I had over a million dollar worth of revenue from my blogshop, a big landmark. A few have earned more money than me and also become millionaires Blogger!
In 2010, I realised that my blogs were reaching a point where I was very happy with them. Rather than focus on new ventures to earn more money, I spend the year working on my community lives and broadening into non-business areas. Not neglecting my own shop at the turn of the clock, I had a lot of free space for other things because I had developed it to a point where it needed little care, beyond article-writing and coaching my members.
These experiences have shown me how important it is to find a good equilibrium between how much you work, how much money you want, how much personal development and with whom you can live your lives. There had been a change in the Internet and my programmes began to show their ages.
I was still using my favorite blogs and I kept writing and publishing my own blog, but my company came to a virtual standstill. It was gratifying that I was in hospitals with my mom almost every single night during this period. Personally, I was free to pay, and even if none of my own items were for purchase, my blogs still fetched at least $5,000 a months and took very little work to update.
And I wanted to be free. Liberty to do the work I wanted when I wanted, liberty to check my earnings, and above all liberty to check how I was spending my free hours. I had the liberty in this case to choose to have my free moment to share my free moments with my mom without having to worry about work responsibilities or whether I could settle my accounts when I was not working.
When my mom died and I finished the job with my girlfriend, I felt a strong urge to go back to my blogshop. I had a premonition of a number of things and offerings I wanted to develop years earlier, but I didn't have the incentive to spend years on developing after three years of creating three classes.
On of the big changes in the Internet in recent years is how overcrowded things have become. For this reason, I had to fine-tune my system to learn a more targeted way of blogs. I' m calling this new system The Blog Sales Funnel. There' a certain kind of individual who is perfect to make money with my new system.
Individuals who are professionals, writers, speakers, educators, instructors and coachs-anyone who wants to pack their wisdom into electronic goods and market it on-line through the force of blogs. I' m still writing in this blogs today, doing my own podcasts, traveling around the globe and teaching professionals how to use the Sales Funnel blogs in their companies through my various trainings and guidelines.
There are many different facets to this tale of how I made money making money on-line and the different phases of my own business life as an entrepreneur. What is the most important thing for me to do? There is no question you have the feeling that there are many parts of the jigsaw lacking in your situational when you want to market your own goods and your own service line up.
