How To Create And Online Income

by Mark Thompson

Most of us have seen numerous adverts promoting programs that’ll earn us yachts and mansions for only a few dollars investment. Too good to be true? Unfortunately yes. Most of the time you’ll waste time and money with these programs. So is there a way to make a full time income from only working on the web a few hours per day?

The short answer is yes but you need to put in a lot more time than a few hours per day to begin with. When I first started Internet marketing I worked up to 12 hours per day building an income to replace the one I lost when I left my previous job. I had to work so hard because I was trying this with any help or advice. I was making mistakes and then learning how to rectify them. It takes dedication and focus and slowly but soon your income will grow to the point that you can cut back your hours and get some quality time with your family.

The first thing you need to do is to sit down and have a long hard consider what you want from life. I would bet that most of you’ll at first think about the fast cars and mansions and the celebrity lifestyles that are depicted in many aspirational adverts. However think harder, these are things you would like to have not what you want from life.

What would you really like from life? Not having to set the alarm each morning so that you aren’t late for work? Being able to take a day off when you feel enjoy it? How about watching your family grow up before your eyes and being able to spend quality time with them after school. All this and more is possible if you are earning an on the web income. Focus on what really matter to you and you’ll achieve it.

Now you know what you want and you know it’s realistic it’s time to get yourself a strategy. I like to think of my income building strategy in terms of building a house, before you put up the walls and roof, the part of the house you can see and admire you need to put in the foundations. The foundation of your income has to be a steady source of reliable income that you can build on.

For my foundations I built a number of content websites and monetized them by adding Adverts and Amazon feeds. I write articles and submit them to directories. I do everything I can to get the sites into the search engines and get traffic to them. Once the visitors started coming and I was getting a steady income then it’s time to branch out and work on the 4 walls of our strategy.

When it comes to building the walls for our income home it’s time to take some risks and have a bit of fun at the same time. Investigate other income streams that you could use. Buying and selling domains might be one good type of project. Also consider buying websites then flipping them for profit. Use what you learned on the foundation stage to improve any sites you purchase.

You now come the the final part of our home. It’s time to add the roof. In you case the roof should be your own products such as e-books or video guides. You’ll have a lot of knowledge that you can share with people who are in the same position you were in only a short while ago. The best way to do this is to create products for them. Only please don’t use photos of Ferrari’s or yachts!

The really good thing about this strategy is that you don’t need any money to get started. There are now enough free resources around that you can create your first income without spending money.

If you’re focused and you stay realistic about what you want you will achieve it.
