Do you believe that someone without any internet marketing experience can make money online in less than a week?
You see, I’m a strong believer that it’s ALWAYS important to build an internet business that can generate income– not just about making money online.
And as a matter of fact, I get annoyed when anyone asks me a question like…
“Can you teach me how to make money online in a week?”
In my mindset, its ‘hard’ to make money online for a newbie and it’ll take at least 6 weeks to get on the right track. I even think that it’s already ‘wrong’ in the first place to have that kind of silly hope.
**BUT**… I realized how I’m shutting myself and my client’s possibilities because I’m being a Smart Alec. I’m being ignorant. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to make money online without spending the time to learn and putting effort, AND wanting to see income in your Paypal within a couple of days.
It is possible and I can prove it to you. No list, no product, no JVs, no nothing.
The only concern is this– you just got to know how to differentiate a real business and the process of making money online.
An internet business is a platform to make money online. But making money online does not mean you have an internet business.
When you want to make money on the internet, there are two ways to go about it.
The first one is to build a real internet business as mentioned earlier. In this method, normally, you’ll select the niche market based on your current expertise, what you like or if it’s your hobby. The strategy for this is to dominate the sub-niche of the pursued niche market and grow it ‘deep’.
Or build an internet business based on your million-dollar idea like the next facebook.com or something.
The other one is to break the ‘rule’ of building a real business by setting up as many ‘income generators’ as you can on the internet. For instance, putting up ads to promote affiliate programs. As you can see, this is really quick because it doesn’t require any product creation or even a website.
The game for this is simple too– the more you can put up on the internet, the higher the chance of success and the richer you’ll be. The internet marketing game is very simple to play- the more ‘presence’ you can have on the internet, the more money you’ll start to see.
The good thing about this method compared to the first one is you have minimal risk and you’ll start seeing income as you go along.
BUT THERE’S A PROBLEM– you desperately need speed. If you don’t use software or hire people to do the mechanical work for you, you just can’t put up enough ‘income generators’ on the internet. My point is, forget about this option if you’re going to do manually – it’s just too much work.
But the ultimate business strategy is to combine both options.
Here’s how it works – send traffic to the affiliate program by using Google Adwords and see how many clicks you can get. In some profitable niches, you can get thousands of clicks at dirt cheap.
If this is happening, then you should start diverting these visitors to your own landing page (instead of sending the traffic directly to the affiliate program) and get them to subscribe into your list. Bam. Now you get to promote the same affiliate program to your list as many times as you want and keep on promoting other products for maximum profit.
