Why are you not starting your online business today?

The title of my blog post today is “why are you not starting your online business today” the reason I am writing this blog post is because I have seen so many people talk about working for themselves and have an online business and yet I see very little action, today is the day to start your online business.

 

 

It Doesn’t Cost Much To Start An Online Business

I have good news for you, did you know that it is extremely cheap to set up an online business, I don’t know of any business is cheaper to set up than an online business.

Recently, I set up a new off-line business, I have started several businesses over the years and just because we think everything is online, off-line businesses still work! I was actually able to set up my off-line business very quickly, however, there was a heavy cost involved of 30+ K, but thankfully the business is paying off well.

One of the reasons that I was able to get this business going so quickly was because I do have a knowledge of creating websites and getting them ranked in Google which is a huge help. I have to say that I really think the Internet is the businessman’s best friend, it has totally changed the way that we promote our business.

I can remember not that many years ago how I would be advertising in magazines, newspapers, shop windows, leaflet drops and more just to try and build up my business, today, you can build your business from your very own home, which is fantastic. I believe that the Internet has to be one of the greatest inventions ever, isn’t it amazing that we can go online and order products, book a holiday, book a flight, check train times et cetera and much more!

How Much Does It Cost To Set Up An Online Business?

The great news is that to set up an online business today is exceptionally cheap, when I first had a website for my off-line business back in 2004, this particular website cost me precisely £1000, I didn’t know a single thing about websites back then and I had no interest in trying to build a website! I no longer actually own this website because I sold the business in 2009 complete with the website.

The first moneymaking website I had which was in 2007 cost me precisely £2000 to build, this website was built by a professional Webmaster. I had many plans for this particular site and over the years it has probably cost me around £15-£20,000, I am thankful that things have dramatically changed now! However, this particular website did have huge amounts of functionality, so it wasn’t straightforward, thankfully, to get started online today you do not need anything so complex in fact I would say try to keep things very simple.

Unfortunately I learnt the hard way to make money online, however, things have improved dramatically over the years and have definitely got much more straightforward. If you would like to read my “Getting Started Guide” this will help to show you how to build an online business. If you go down this route potentially to start with your online business will cost absolutely nothing.

Most of us own a laptop or PC, potentially you could start your online business just using a smartphone but this is not something I would recommend as I always find my laptop a thousand times easier to do business on and yes we can use a smartphone for many things but I still find it so much easier to use my laptop.

Buying A Domain Name

If you have read my getting started online guide you will realise that you can set up a free account at Wealthy Affiliate and start learning how to make money online, I do strongly suggest that at some point you upgrade to premium as this gives you access to every single piece of information you need to start an online business. Literally, all I buy to build my websites is a domain name, my websites are hosted at Wealthy Affiliate and you can purchase domain names right here.

When you’re choosing a domain name make sure that you don’t have any abbreviations like dashes in the name as people can never remember where dashes and abbreviations are, you can actually end up sending someone to your competitors website if they can’t remember your domain name. Choose something simple if you can and that relates to your niche, so for example, if it was about camping equipment you could have a domain name something like qualitycampingequipment and as I said in the previous sentence don’t have something like quality – camping – equipment people will never remember this domain name.

Most people choose a.com for their business, I am based in the UK so depending on what I am promoting I either have a.co.uk or a.com and sometimes both.

Hosting

I used to pay around £25 per month for my hosting, however, as I mentioned earlier I host most of my websites with the Internet marketing training platform that I belong to, their hosting works very well and saves me money every month which is fantastic. You can do the same if you join this great platform.

Do You Know How Easy It Is To Put Up A Website?

I’m very thankful today that it is far easier to build a website today than it was a few years ago, as I mentioned earlier in this post my first website cost me £1000. Today you can literally put a website up in a matter of seconds, take a look at my video regarding putting up a website in 30 seconds.

So What Are You Waiting For?

So what you waiting for to get started with your online business, it’s far too easy to put off things in this life and if we don’t get started today when will we get started? Remember that I’m here to help you, I want to see you succeed and reach your goals.

So How Does Success Come Online?

So How Does Success Come Online?

So How Does Success Come Online?

So how does success come online?

My blog post today is asking the question, so how does success come online? The majority of people I speak to do not have a clue about how to make money online and have never actually made a penny or a cent online! However, something that I have noticed is that people seem to have the ability to tell me how to run an online business, what I should and shouldn’t be doing and how online business is a scam! I don’t know really why it is that people want to try and share knowledge about something that they really do not know about!

Listen to the right people

With any business, we need to have the right people around us, too many people have the wrong people around them and this holds them back, I have been there and I know that it has held me back, big time! Make sure that you have knowledgeable people around you and people that want to see you succeed as this will help your business progress hugely. Unfortunately and very sadly, there are too many people who do not want to see you successful, these are the people that you need to remove from your life as they have absolutely no place in your life whatsoever. If people are continually criticising you about what you are doing, this is far from motivational and can have adverse effects.

However, if we have people around us that are highly motivated, interested in what we are doing and they want to see you succeed this can be a huge benefit and extremely encouraging and leave us with a totally different mindset of wanting to move businesses forward. I have to say in the early days of my working life I had too many of the wrong people around me and this didn’t help to move my business forward.

You Can See My Video Below About t How Does Success Come Online?

Make Sure You Have The Right Training

When I first started researching about making money online back in 2004, I was buying into all the wrong products, not deliberately, but I just didn’t know any better, I was working blind and I had to start somewhere. The most important aspect of an online business is to have proper training and to have a plan of action and also to set goals and a to-do list, without these we have a huge chance of failing.

It took me three years to get my first online business off the ground, the main reason it took so long was that I didn’t know what I was doing at all, everything was totally new to me, I had to learn from scratch. I’m very thankful to say that I am now part of a great platform which is great for beginners and also great for people like myself who have been working online for many years. You can find out more about how to start your online business in my getting started guide here. This will take you through all the steps you need to start an online business, you can actually start with a free account and learn huge amounts to get you on the right tracks.

Finding A Niche

I believe one of the most important things is with an online business is that we have a niche that we are passionate about and have a knowledge about, I believe that if we are passionate about something we normally automatically have knowledge about the subject. Whatever you do don’t try and look for moneymaking niches, just go find a niche that you are absolutely passionate about, failure to do this will make your online business hard work.

There are some people that would disagree with me, but I can’t imagine trying to write blog posts on a subject I had no interest in and yet the money was good, it would be really difficult. Personally, I have no interest in football whatsoever, I appreciate that many people are absolutely passionate about the game and there is nothing wrong with that! I cannot imagine trying to write about football, first of all, because I know nothing about the subject and secondly because I have no interest in the subject. But can you imagine what it would be like if I had a passion for football and I started writing about the subject, the things I could write about would be endless, this is the importance of having a passion for your niche.

Write and write some more

Over the years I have come across many highly successful Internet marketers, some of them have actually created their own products and made literally millions, others are affiliate marketers and still making extremely good money from just working from their own home and working the hours that they wish. Many of these successful Internet marketers when you ask them what they have done to be successful, they will say nothing really, but I just posted regularly on my website. In other words, they are writing informative blog posts in their niche and are consistent in writing on a regular basis, they didn’t give up! For many years the phrase “content is king” has been used in the Internet marketing world, I believe that this is still very true.

Consistency is key

I am on several Internet marketers email lists and one thing that I see from every successful Internet marketer is consistency. I know that some Internet marketers have tried things and they have actually not been that successful, however, they don’t let this hold them back they just move onto the next thing and continually keep moving forward, they don’t let obstacles slow them down. I think this is one of the biggest problems when people start an Internet business, they start off very keen and enthusiastic, but after a few weeks of not seeing any results that become downcast and start to think that their business is never going to get off the ground.

Often people give up when they are right on the tip of success, this is so disappointing because with a little bit more effort and perseverance with an online business we can achieve so much. Of course, there is also the other type of people who sign up for a course and don’t do anything with it or forget their password so that they can’t login and then say that this program is a scam! It may sound funny but I see this sort of thing happening all the time.

Be Organised

In the last paragraph, I mentioned that people often forget their passwords and usernames, one of the biggest things to success is being organised. I have many folders in my documents as I like to be able to find things quickly, we need to be able to pull things out of our folders instantly and not lose time. I have spent literally hours of wasted time trying to help people on something straightforward only to find that they can’t find a username, they have lost their password, they can’t login to their email on the laptop et cetera et cetera….. This is just a pointless waste of time and it stops us moving forward in our daily tasks, I hope that you are not one of these people, if you are, it’s never too late to get organised and it’s so much better for your online business.

Following The Training

I mentioned in a previous paragraph the importance of having the right training, if you are a beginner it is exceptionally important that you go through a training platform step-by-step not missing any action points if you do this and you are consistent you will be successful! We also need to realise that we never stop learning, I learnt the hard way, but I don’t want other people to do the same as I did.

It Takes Time To Build An Internet Marketing Business

I think we all know that every business takes time and effort to build, if we don’t understand this we are really not living in the real world. I recently started an off-line business and thankfully I saw results very quickly. An online business takes a bit more time, but if we are consistent this can dramatically speed up the time of getting from starting from zero to making money online. We need to be prepared to work for at least six months without making any money, please don’t be alarmed by this as six months goes extremely quickly, especially when we are busy. The more we can write and the more we learn the quicker we will get there.

I Want You To Succeed

I think we all like to hear success stories and sharing people’s joy of how they have turned her life around and created a successful business. I am here to help you and the reason I’m writing this blog post is that I don’t want to see people make the same mistakes as I did! So, why not read my getting started guide and take action now.

Why Have I Set Up A YouTube Channel

Why Have I Set Up A YouTube Channel

Why Have I Set Up A YouTube Channel

Why Have I Set Up A YouTube Channel

I want to tell you the reasons why I have set up a YouTube channel, back in 2004 I had my first broadband Internet connection and to me, this is what changed the face of the Internet, it literally changed overnight for me! I hadn’t used a PC at all until in 2001 I had my first desktop PC, I didn’t have a clue how to use it and I found it absolutely unbelievably frustrating! There were a few times when I felt like throwing out the window, not proud of this type of behaviour, but was just so frustrating!

Don’t make the mistakes that I made!

So I want to help you start your online business the right way, I don’t want you to make the mistakes I have made over the years, and I can tell you I have made a lot of mistakes, I learnt the hard way. Thankfully now I know what works and what doesn’t work, I know what is a scam and what isn’t a scam, I want to bring to you on this YouTube channel what is good and works and stop you making the mistakes that I made. One thing that I can tell you for sure is that bright shiny object syndrome does not work, I had this problem where I thought the next, by product this will be the best thing since sliced bread, I’m sorry that doesn’t work, I’ve tried it! I can tell you how to get started the right way and I can be here to try and answer your questions regarding your online business.

You can see my video below

It’s A Joy To Help Others Succeed

For me, it is a joy to help others succeed, I don’t believe that any of us should struggle financially, I believe that there are enough resources for us all to be able to make money, I really do love to see people succeed!

So What Changed Me

The Internet is a fantastic invention, it really has changed how we live, but prior to having broadband back in 2004, I had the old-fashioned dial-up modem, which was so painfully slow, literally it was only good for sending the odd email, providing the attachment was very small! The day I had my first broadband connection literally changed the way I thought about the Internet. Immediately, I could see the power of the Internet, the Internet suddenly became usable, I could see the potential of literally reaching thousands of people across the world! But now I had to find out how to make money online, this was the hard bit, as I didn’t know a thing about making money online!

I Spent Three Years Researching

I literally spent three years researching Internet marketing and how to make money online in 2004, I really didn’t have a clue what to do but I just started to research, I would put in questions like how to make money online, how to work from home. As you can imagine I had all sorts of great headlines come up, headlines like cash machine, turnkey profits, money goldmine, 0 to $10,000 in a day, you can imagine it, it sounded so good, but the reality was that most of these products were spam products.

I Spent Thousands Of Dollars

I spent thousands of dollars trying to find the right product on how to make money online, I was just working so blind, I didn’t know where to start, but I was kind of learning things in a mixed up way. I would literally buy a product that promised everything and then discover that it was really a nothing product and it would get me nowhere. The good thing is that of all these products I purchased, I did learn something and a few the products that I purchased were genuine, the biggest problem I had was that I was just working blind, this is not good, we need to have a plan, we need to have goals and we need to know exactly where we are going, otherwise we will literally go nowhere.

My First Money Making Website Was In 2007

I actually had my first website in 2004, but this was created for my off-line business, My first money making website was in 2007 and the first day the site went live I made a sale, this was so encouraging! The website was actually a Google AdSense website which is something that I will write about another time. Google AdSense is a platform that puts ads on your website and when people click on them we earn a small amount of money. The commissions we earn from these ads can vary considerably, for example, if it was an ad for a car it would probably just earn a few cents, however, if it was an ad for a bank loan or similar product we could earn much more, probably one or two dollars.

Listen To The Right People

There are many people in this Internet marketing world that will try and sell you a scam product, in my experience in life it is very important to have the right people around us, having the right people around us will move us forward, but having the wrong people around us will make us go backwards, we have a choice, let’s choose the right people! I was in Bible school a few years ago and the principal of the Bible school who was highly successful always used to tell us all to run from the wrong people, I have never forgotten this, it is so important! I have come across so many people in my life in business and socialising but what I have realised is that there are some people that you just have to run from, if someone is holding you back, run from them, in other words, run as you’ve never run before!

You Will Receive Much Criticism Regarding Internet Marketing

Something that I have experienced in life is that most people do not understand the concept of Internet marketing and how you can make money online, they really do not get it. The majority of people that I’ve met have literally never made a pound or dollar online, however, they seem to think that they have the knowledge to tell you that Internet marketing is a scam, you can’t make money online, you’re just wasting your time, it won’t work! Sometimes these people can actually be people who are very close to us, I have chosen to ignore these people, not totally, but on the Internet marketing subject as this sort of talk can hold us back.

I have learnt to discuss Internet marketing only with people who are genuinely interested and want to listen to what I have to say! It’s something I’ve never been able to understand, people will tell you that an online business doesn’t work and they will also tell you that what you are doing will not work, what they don’t realise is that it takes time to build an online business.

I have owned three off-line businesses and I have made money online since 2007, some things work better than others, the main thing with an Internet business is to be consistent, take action on a regular basis and listen to the right people. An Internet business takes time to build, we have to be prepared to have a few months setting a business up before we actually start earning money.

I Have Worked For Myself Since I Was 18

I have worked for myself since I was 18 and even before I left school I was doing weekend jobs and after-school jobs, I believe that this helped to give me a good work ethic and set me up for life. I guess that I will never work for anyone again as I’ve been self-employed for over 30 years, time goes quickly!

So To Conclude

So, I plan to make many different YouTube videos, there will not be anything fancy about my videos, but I will give you genuine information on a regular basis, in other words, the do’s and don’t’s of an online business.

What To Do In The Internet Marketing World 2019

What to do in the Internet marketing world 2019

What to do in the Internet marketing world 2019

What to do in the Internet marketing world 2019

Today, I’m writing a post about what to do in Internet marketing world 2019, yesterday I wrote a blog post with the title “what not to do in the Internet marketing world 2019”, so today we have something much more exciting and positive!

You can see my previous days post on what not to do in the Internet marketing world 2019.

First of all, from experience, hard work pays off, with any business whether it be online or off-line we have to work hard, I have been self-employed since 1983 and in my experience, I have found the only way to create success is to work hard. I can also say though that is very rewarding when we work hard and we achieve something good.

Evergreen Content Strategy

We are looking for ways to be found in Google and one of the things we need to look at its evergreen content strategy. By this I mean an evergreen tree grows and keeps growing and stays green all year round, we need our content to be found all year round and not to die off as time passes.

We all have to create content for our business, whether it be on a website, social media, a video or even creating an advertisement, it’s all content, without content nothing happens, we need content to be found on the web. So in other words content is an evergreen strategy, that will never go away, remember that content will never go away, it will always exist!

What Evergreen Strategies Work

There are many different niches all over the web, we can literally find any niche on the web, people are searching for information that whatever your niche is, within reason, it has huge potential to be found, in other words, a niche will never go away or disappear.

Keywords will always be used to find our particular niche, we can use a keyword tool to help us find particular keywords for a niche. You can take a look at the free keyword tool that I use to help find the relative keywords.

We can write blog posts on one targeted keyword, not multiple keywords, we need to focus on one targeted keyword. We can actually find potentially low hanging fruit to find that special keyword, my free keyword tool will help you find the low hanging fruit keywords. We need to base our blog post on one targeted keyword, Google no longer likes keyword stuffing, in other words trying to get as many keywords into a blog post as possible, this is a definite no-no.

We need to engage with our audience, this is a great strategy to use and very important. We need to be very real, but can’t hide behind our blog posts, people like to know who they are dealing with so engagement with our audience is very important. Let me give you this thought, would you buy from someone that you don’t know? It’s so much better to show your face and engage with your audience. We can engage with people through our blog posts, through Facebook or a Facebook group, or even through our YouTube channel, in fact, any social media platform helps us to engage with people.

Another good way to engage with our audience is to have comments on a blog, the Internet marketing platform that I’m involved with actually give you comments on your website and feedback, which is something really useful. You can find out more about this by looking at my getting started guide. Something that I always try and do is to reply to people who leave comments on my blog or social media platforms, it’s always good to communicate with people, no one wants to be ignored. It is so important to engage with our readers and followers if we do not engage with them they are just going to go somewhere else, which we don’t want, so you can see the importance of engagement.

Technical Evergreen Strategies

Let’s talk about a few technical evergreen strategies that work and will probably always be around.

The first one is meta titles, these have been around a long time and will probably always be around.

Meta descriptions, this is something else that will probably always be around, some people do not think it’s important but I think it’s great to be able to show the search engines what your blog is about in a few words. A meta description is an opportunity to show our potential readers 155 characters that will encourage them to come to our website, we really need to make the most of this opportunity. The meta description needs to have our one targeted keyword within the description, this is very important. Incidentally, a keyword can also be a key phrase, it needs to be something that people are searching for.

Keep  content above the scroll, this means what we see above the scroll, so in other words what we see before we scroll down.

Internal links, Google likes internal links that link to relevant content within your site. When we link to relevant pages or posts within our website, it is telling Google that we have more content on our website, not just the page that we are on, but other pages too. The only way that Google knows where our content is, is through our site map or menu, so linking to internal content is very important. When Google spiders our website and finds our content and then finds other pages that are linked with similar content, this is a very huge plus point.

External links, these are useful, a good external link to use something like Wikipedia, Wikipedia is a well-proven website and it shows Google you are trying to share genuine knowledge.

Email Marketing

Email marketing will never go away, some people may disagree, but I believe this is the best way to communicate with our customers and potentially make sales in a good way. Email marketing is the best way to make sales and someone can actually stay on a list for many years, especially if we do our email marketing the correct way. In other words, make it personal, it creates exclusivity within our tribe. When we build our tribe through email marketing it becomes very personal and people can get a better picture of who we really are which can encourage people to feel secure and potentially buy from us. Making something exclusive and very personal can be a great winner for future sales for many years, this is the power of email marketing.

Knowledge Commerce

What is knowledge commerce? Knowledge commerce is giving people information, often people will pay for knowledge, so for a small fee people will receive accurate knowledge. You can see an example of this, for the past eight years I have been part of two different Internet marketing membership sites, I currently belong to one membership site at the moment. This is a great resource for me, as you know I have been working online since 2007 and over a period of time we can learn a huge amount of knowledge, but, it’s always good to keep up-to-date with the latest how-to’s and more. You can see my profile here.

Email marketing is knowledge commerce, for example, we will often go to a website and fill in a form with a name and email address and receive information, which may be how to do something or a special offer or a series of emails. Knowledge commerce can be given through a Facebook group or as mentioned in the previous paragraph a membership site. So what can we do to give people free knowledge commerce, so often we had to pay for knowledge commerce, but at the same time it’s good to be able to give away knowledge for free, it helps to build relationships.

Free knowledge commerce is for example when someone signs up to your website, so they fill in their name and their email address and in return you give them free information from your website, so you are exchanging free information for their email address. So when someone signs up to our website, we can then potentially market to them and make sales, however, this has to be carried out in the correct way, we build relationships first. We could also give our readers free knowledge through a Facebook group, they could sign up to our Facebook group, and we can give them free knowledge and promote the occasional product that may help to get them to where they want to be.

So how can we make free knowledge commerce work? Blogging and giving away information and offering potential products is a great way to bring traffic to a business and it works, but if we can bring traffic to our website through email marketing, Facebook groups, membership sites etc, you can increase our revenue considerably. We need to think outside the box.

So I Conclude

Evergreen strategies are a great way to grow our business, we know that they work. My question to you is which evergreen strategy are you going to implement today?

Thank you for reading.

As Christians We Are Called To Work-Christian Devotional

As Christians we are called to work

As Christians, we are called to work

As Christians, we are called to work-Christian devotional

As Christians, we are called to work, maybe this is something that some people do not want to hear, but it is a very biblical principal to work and very it is also very satisfying.

In 2 Thessalonians 2 9–11 we are told the following:

10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 11 For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies.

I come from a Christian family who always works hard, my father worked full time and my mother looked after the three children and the house, but we all had a duty is to do even as young children! I believe that this gave me good training for the future.

It’s Biblical To Work!

As far back as Genesis God told Adam to work: Genesis 2:15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.

This particular passage is particularly meaningful to me as I started off working in people’s gardens before I left school, even though my primary aim was to work on a farm, as I love the outdoors, agriculture and the countryside has always interested me right to this day, I always see creation when I’m in the countryside, it is such a beautiful and wonderful privilege.

It Doesn’t Matter What Your Skills Are

It doesn’t matter what your skills are, God has created you an individual, your someone special in his eyes, he created you uniquely. I believe that God very much wants to use our individuality and uniqueness, You may be someone who works on the land or the building trade or an office job, we are all valuable in God’s eyes.  I also believe that every single person on this earth has something to offer. I have to say that I didn’t particularly enjoy school, I could add up and spell at a reasonably early age, which is something, but I certainly wouldn’t say that school was my strong point. One of the best things that ever happened to me apart from being born again was walking out of the school gates for the very last time, I remember it well, it was a wonderful feeling.

However, despite leaving school with very few qualifications I was able to find a job on a farm which was what I wanted, however by the age of 18 I was actually self-employed and working for myself and have been ever since, I’m not expecting this to change in the near future either!

I’m Thankful For The Biblical Teaching That I Was Taught As A Child

I’m very thankful for the biblical teaching that I was taught as a child and although as a teenager and in my 20s I wasn’t living the Christian life, in fact, I was very far away from God and actually didn’t want anything to do with anything Christian! But something I always have done is to work, write to this very day and I hope to carry on as long as I can. I thank God that when I was in my early 30s I met with Jesus big time, he turned my thought life totally around, I have been very privileged to see the miraculous and the awesomeness of God at work! I used to think Christianity was absolute nonsense, but now I have met the King of Kings, I know he is real, I know what is done for me and I know how he’s turned my life around, a wonderful thing!

I thank God for giving each of us the gift to be able to work and that he wants to use us mightily in this world. Maybe you are like me and you were not the most educated person, thankfully we don’t stop learning when we leave school, I think I learned more in one year of leaving school and I did in my first 16 years of life and I think this has probably carried on throughout my life to this day.

You can see from this website some of the things that I have learnt if you’re interested in working online, you can take a look at my getting started online guide, which I recommend to everyone who wants to start an online business.

Enjoy your work

Maybe sometimes your work can be a bit mundane, routines can become like this when I’m in situations like this I try to think about the goodness of God and all the things that he has done. I work online and I also have an off-line business, I love being outside and having the opportunity to see the beauty all around me. I also enjoy having the opportunity to speak to various people and the opportunity to share the good news of Jesus to, it’s so important to enjoy our work and be a light in sometimes a dark place.

God wants to see us doing well

I’m not talking about prosperity gospel, but I really believe that God wants to see his children thrive and I believe that he has given us everything that we need to earn a living. I appreciate that in some countries there are corrupt governments that make it difficult to earn a decent living, this was not God’s plan for his people. Let us do everything with prayer and thanksgiving and be grateful for what God has done for us. Let us also be people who demonstrate the love of God and who are action takers who can live life abundantly.

My question to you today is are you going to live the abundant life and stand on the promises of God?

What Not To Do In The Internet Marketing World 2019!

We are going to be looking at the subject of what not to do in the Internet marketing world 2019, in other words, what doesn’t work!

Over the years, I have suffered from something known as “bright shiny object syndrome”, this is something that you do not want to have, I’ve tried it and it’s an expensive hobby! When I started researching Internet marketing back in 2004, I really saw the power of the Internet and the huge potential that it offered, the problem was that I did not know where to start!

I Tried So Many Different Internet Marketing Products

Over the years I tried so many different Internet marketing products, each one promising to be better than the last one, I was desperate to learn, believing that the next shiny object would really be the one that made me successful online, how wrong I was! Let me just remind you that whatever you are thinking, shiny objects do not work and if you have this problem, you need to stop right now as I can help you overcome this terrible expensive problem! In the early days I signed up to so many Internet marketers newsletters to try and gain knowledge, but all this really done was to take my focus away from my primary goal of making money online, we have to have a plan and goals, without a plan we are almost certain to fail!

So What Products Should I Avoid?

I think many of us who have been working online have all received and seen products with great headlines, promising to make huge amounts of money from minimal amounts of work, here are a few types of products that you should avoid, they have some absolutely fantastic headlines!

Pushbutton traffic – Buy this product and you will have pushbutton traffic, a constant flow of traffic just through pushing one button! I’m sorry, avoid pushbutton traffic, there is no such thing, it takes time to get traffic to your website!

Cash cow – This is such a good name, I don’t know who invented it, but it sounds great! How amazing to have a cash cow that just keeps bringing in the money, I’m sorry, a cash cow does not work, it’s a false promise and it will not bring you in cash, please do not buy products with this headline!

Turnkey profits – How wonderful, we just turn a key and the profits come rolling in, how marvellous, how wonderful! Once again, please do not buy, there is no such thing as turnkey profits, any business takes work if you think you can have an online business and not work, please stop reading this page and give up having an online business now!

Maybe you are reading down this list and finding all these words and headlines far too familiar, I have literally come across these phrases time and time again. The good news is that you don’t have to make the same mistakes that I made, there is a much more straightforward way to start working online. You can take a look at my Getting Started Guide, this is a very simple way to get started and it really genuinely works. The problem I had was that I was running to the next shiny object thinking that the next shiny object was going to be my goldmine, it wasn’t and it won’t be yours, I can assure you! You have to have a plan and you need to stick to it, my getting started guide will show you exactly what to do in the right way.

Automated – Now sometimes automated can be good and there are certain things that we can do with our online business and make certain things automated, however, this word can often be misused. There are various pieces of software that can help to automate your business, however just be careful as within Internet marketing automated can often mean scam, do not buy into!

Set up once and watch the money flow into your account – I am sorry, I don’t know of any online business where you set something up and the money flows into account! Admittedly, if we are writing blog posts on a regular basis, then this post to last forever, however, Internet products that have this type of headline do not work, please avoid!

Done for you – This is a type of product that may be used in an upsell, perhaps you just purchased a product and then you will be offered an upsell that says something like, “take the hard work out of your business”! Unfortunately, in general, this is untruthful, once again, please avoid.

Secrets – This is quite a popular headline if someone found something that worked for them really well for themselves, why would they want to tell you!? Secrets normally equals scam product, please avoid.

Cash machine – Now this is a very popular Internet marketing headline, all you do is set up your product and the cash keeps flowing in, I’m sorry, this does not happen! I just put a search into Google out of curiosity for Internet marketing cash machine and the usual suspects come up. Please avoid, your cash machine will not work or do what it says on the label!

Hijack – Now this is another great name, I see this one a lot, in normal cases, I would say avoid, however, I do know of one product that has the name hijack in it and it is actually a good product, but in normal terms, I would say avoid.

0 to $10,000 a day – This is another popular headline that comes up very often and yes, I have heard of some great success stories where people have grown their Internet marketing business unbelievably quickly, but I’m afraid that it is not quite as simple as this! Once again avoid products with this type of headline, it won’t work!

Goldmine – Cash Goldmine – This is another very popular headline for an Internet product, please avoid, there is no such thing as a cash goldmine!

Just 10 minutes a day – I have seen many sales pages and videos where the creator of a product will tell you all you need is just 10 minutes a day and you have your own cash cow, I’m sorry, this is untrue, I’ve tried it, it just doesn’t work, it’s not possible!

Instant traffic – So you have your brand-new website put up with this nice colourful logo and instantly you will have traffic, I’m afraid another lie! You can have the prettiest website the most brilliant logo, but unless you are prepared to add content to your website, I promise you that you will not have instant traffic! Once again, avoid these types of programs?

There are many more headlines that I could bring to you, but I think this is enough to give you the sort of products that I have bought into and they have failed me big time!

The Sad Part Is

The sad part is that these products that I have mentioned above actually sell, spam products make people money, but in my mind, this is not right to sell products like this, I will never try and promote or sell a product that I do not think is legitimate or spammy or just does not work.

I will be writing another post shortly about what to do in 2019 in the Internet world.

YouTube Creators Academy, Is It Good?

YouTube creators Academy, is it good?

YouTube creators Academy, is it good?

I’ve just started the YouTube creators Academy course on YouTube as I thought it would be a good idea to learn the correct way to use YouTube, so my question is YouTube creators Academy, is it good?

I literally started the YouTube creators Academy a couple of days ago, I was looking to increase my knowledge on how to get the best out of YouTube and although I have learnt quite a lot over the years I thought it would be good to learn from the experts, YouTube themselves!

I Have Several Websites

I have several websites and I have created quite a few videos over the years and sometimes it seems that the videos that you think people will not be interested in, they seem to be very keen to watch. I have one video that has around 1/4 of a million views and then I have other videos that may have only been viewed 20 times, admittedly the viewing figures go up as time goes on.

I actually came across the YouTube creators Academy via an email that YouTube sent me, I didn’t actually know there was such a course available. I carried out some research and I asked a question on a website that I’m a member of, you can see the post that I wrote here, it seemed like people like the idea and many people didn’t know there was such a course available, including myself, so I think there will be more people signing up for this course!

YouTube Creators Academy

The course contains about 30 lessons and within each lesson courses are broken down into small bite size pieces, most of the training videos are between 2 to 3 minutes long, this makes it very easy to focus and you can learn something even if you only have a few minutes to spare and then come back to the course later. After each module or section of the training course, there are questions to answer to test your knowledge, in other words, to check that you have understood what you have learnt. And then after each module, there is a small exam and then you receive a letter of confirmation that you have completed the module.

The first part of the course is almost about dos and don’ts, very important as we do not our YouTube channel flagged or taken down. Many of the questions and the answers are common sense, but it’s definitely good to go through the ins and outs and the rules before we really get going on our YouTube channel.

Just Getting Started

I have just started lesson two of the YouTube creators Academy, these lessons are about being found on YouTube which is probably one of the most important lessons that we need to participate in, it’s so important to have the right title and to be found on YouTube.

I will share with you more about the YouTube creators Academy as time moves on.

Here is the link to the YouTube Creators Academy.

This is a short blog post, but more posts will follow on the subject, please feel free to comment below and leave any questions you may have.

Thank you for reading.
