Taking Care of Business

I have to admit that I do not spend as much time with my blog as I should. Well, there are just so many hours in a day and I’m a very busy guy . . . or a world-class procrastinator – take your pick.

A few months ago I changed my blog’s WordPress theme and am still ironing out a few wrinkles. I’m doing this myself after a disastrous experience with someone I paid handsomely to do the work for me. So much for buying the wrong service.

Well, my reason for telling you all this is I started my blog a few years ago when I heard about John Chow on Leo Laporte’s (The Tech Guy) radio show. I was curious and looked him up on the Internet and bought his Blogging With John Chow course. Since then I’ve gotten to know John and consider him a friend. We meet frequently over lunch and share Internet money-making ideas. John Chow is one of the top online money makers in the world.

Starting Your Online Business Part #2

The most common Internet business involves selling products or content. If you want to experience making money online sell something on eBay or Amazon. Doing that requires nothing more than finding some item to sell and putting it online. Both eBay and Amazon have online tutorials explaining the process.

This is a great way to get your feet wet making money online and you don’t need a web site or do anything but put your products up for sale. I have never offered anything for sale on eBay that someone did not buy. So, you quickly experience making money online. And you get rid of stuff you no longer need.

I am putting about a dozen items on Amazon today and expect to make $500 – $700 when they sell. These are some legacy cameras  and some sports memorabilia. Collectible items are in great demand, especially old cameras in working condition. In my experience the best sale items are small and sell for at least $50.

Starting Your Online Business Part #1

I  encourage people to start an online business. In today’s economy we all need a fall-back plan. Jobs are harder to come by and I believe the national economy is heading for another downturn more dramatic than that of 2008.

An online business can provide additional income for your family. It may be a portal to full-time income giving you the freedom many others enjoy. I enjoy the DotComLifestyle. . . working from anywhere I can get an Internet connection. I work the hours I choose and I am my own boss.

Yet, an online business is just  that . . . a business. There are things to consider before plunging into the world  you see (often attached to Internet scams) where pretty people lounge on large yachts, drive expensive cars, live in mansion-like houses, and travel the world.

You Can Make Money With An Internet Business

Again I am asked how it is possible to make money on the Internet. Well, here is one short example. You enter into an affiliate agreement with a company or affiliate agency. That is the easy part.

The company provides an ad to place on your web site. That ad has a code that when someone clicks on it they are redirected to an offer page. You are then paid for what is known as one click through. If the person clicking on that ad buys the product advertised  you are also paid a commission.

Here is one set of statistics on earnings via click through ads.

A click through rate (CTR) is the rate at which an advertisement on a web page is clicked per 100 ad impressions (views). Read the rest of this entry
