Passive income online – the truth

It seems the holy grail of internet marketing is the idea of making passive income online, and of course, that's something everyone wants - well wouldn't you? The question is, does such a thing exist, how easy is it to achieve and is it a realistic expectation for your online business. Let's face it, if it was that easy to achieve, everyone would be doing it - right? And that's the point. "Passive income" is definitely achievable, but not that easily. With that said, the result, if achieved, is worth any sort of effort to get there. It's got to be, just imagine making money while you sleep what could be better? Okay, slow down. Before we get carried away here, let's look at something we'll call delayed gratification, it's an important concept. Passive income online is not instant riches You'll have often heard it said that a doctor or attorney will…

Affiliate marketing system – top tip

As you're building out your affiliate business, developing your own version of an affiliate marketing system will be something you do naturally. There's a ton of information available for affiliate marketers and it's only possible to action a small fraction of it, so you'll have to be selective about what affiliate marketing systems you follow and/or develop. The best advice of all is to model success. Take your lead from someone who can evidence they're already making money online - that's one of the reasons I post updates on my earnings on this site. However, whatever affiliate marketing system you put in place or adapt, there's one important principle never to lose track of; if you get this wrong¬†you won't make sales - read on.

Entrepreneur tips – give to receive

One of my most lucrative entrepreneur tips Whether you're an affiliate marketer, freelancer or any other kind of online entrepreneur, providing value upfront is one of my key entrepreneur tips. It's absolutely the best way to: Get new business Get more business from existing customers Keep customers longer Increase customer lifetime value Make more cash! Here's an actual example of how doing just that made me $5,000 in my business yesterday. My customer had no business for me Several days ago, I sent a message to one of my customers in my digital marketing business asking if they had any business for me. No reply. I knew Jonathan was a busy guy, so I figured he just didn't have time to reply. I also knew that sending out an email simply asking for business is not such a good idea in any case, but I was busy and just dashed off a…

Email marketing is dead – NOT!

You better believe it :) It's important to make sure you turn visitors to your website into email subscribers, period. I'm seeing a lot of talk about email being dead and the latest flavor of the day seems to be Facebook messenger. To be honest, right now I can't stand FB messenger! I have it on my cell phone and I find it clumsy, confusing and not at all intuitive. That said, there are still many things on Facebook itself that remain a mystery to my (highly logical) brain. But, putting all personal prejudice aside, there is good reason, very good reason, to double down on building your email list. Are your visitors leaving without meeting you? I read a blog post on Wealthy¬†Affiliate today that struck a chord (I'm a premium member) and I wanted to share it with you. The author asked the question "Are your visitors leaving without meeting…

A critically important affiliate marketing website tip

Important information about content for your affiliate marketing website You know you need amazing written content for your affiliate marketing website, but WHAT KIND of content do you need? It's a critical question because if you think any old content will do you're wrong! Worse still, you'll be wasting a ton of effort, possibly money and certainly your time. To understand what works today to bring in affiliate sales, we first need to look at how affiliate marketing website content has changed in recent years, let me explain... The good old days of affiliate marketing websites A few years ago, you could throw up any old content and as long as it included some target keywords, Google would find it, you'd get visitors and likely make a sale or two. Since then, two things have changed dramatically: The Google algorithm (how it ranks the quality of your content). Your potential customers' maturity.…

Successful entrepreneur tips – your mental health

One of my more important successful entrepreneur tips If you're reading this, it's highly likely you want to make it online, earn a full-time income and even quit your job. Throughout my website, I provide you with a host of "successful entrepreneur tips" that can help you do just that. However, there are some potential issues you need to be aware of as you start to see success, let me explain. There's an entrepreneur on YouTube I loosely follow by the name of Greg Preece. I say loosely because although he's a successful affiliate marketer he was following a direction last year that I could see might be unsustainable in the long run (Merch by Amazon). That said, he got himself to a stage where he was regularly earning $3,000 or so a month of passive income which is a great achievement. Greg was posting to YouTube virtually every day, uploading hundreds…

What successful people do differently

There are reasons why some people achieve success while others want it but never achieve it. I believe you can boil much of the difference down to certain traits successful people have while those that struggle to break through are missing these important characteristics. Action takers Successful entrepreneurs tend to be action takers who have an idea and run with it. They don't overanalyze the situation (paralysis by analysis) but forge ahead no matter what. Often, they won't listen to advice from others who doubt their ideas or direction and that can be a good thing. In my experience, most of the would-be advisors are not in a position to give advice in any case because they're giving advice on something they don't really understand (working online). There's so much opportunity to make money online in our digital age that never existed 20 years ago. You simply need to take action, tap…

Sack your boss before it’s too late!

  I came across this post on Quora today and it reminded me of just how much I hated working for companies and the dreaded boss! THE QUORA POST This poor sod is doing everything right and the boss still wants to cut his salary due to "budget restrictions". What kind of BS is that? In the past, I've worked for major corporates such as IBM, Fujitsu, and Xerox, and do I miss it - not at all. Okay, the steady money and perks were good, but the jumping through hoops and trying to be the corporate animal I wasn't was painful. On top of this, there is a definite ceiling to what you can achieve and earn in a given job role. PLUS You're ultimately at the mercy of the company - look at this guy who's probably going to have to look for another job through no fault of his…
