The First Thing to Do to Make Money Online

Some people have asked me, “What is the very first thing I should do to start making money on the Internet?” It’s not always obvious to answer that question, because there are a lot of possible answers.

First, let’s take a look at what are some of the steps necessary to successfully earn a living online:

You need a list

You need a TOPIC and a domain name

You need a website

You need some products to sell

You need TRAFFIC to your website

You need credibility

You need a salesletter for your products

You need to know WHY you’re doing this. What is your ultimate goal?

How Much Stuff to Bring on a Trip?

Traveller woman

The countdown for my trip around the world has already started. We’re now in December 2009 and the trip officially starts as early as June 2010!

How to Get a Flow of Ideas

I have found that your work space (for example, your home office) is a perfect place for executing ideas, but a very poor one for generating ideas. Like most writers, I have found that your best ideas come when you’re not working.

The best ideas come when you remove yourself from your normal work environment. The most effective one I have found is traveling, especially to an interesting and new environment.

If you want to get a fresh new perspective on your life and on your work, go on a trip. Travel somewhere new. Take the train, book a flight somewhere, go visit a relative, or go on a road trip. Do a little “airport”, as author Stuart Wilde would say, but make sure you carry a good notebook with you, because ideas are likely to just start flowing!… Read More »
