TIP: The best programs to promote are those with recurring commissions that pay you month after month. Why not get paid month after month and do the work one time? So, watch out for those and put those at the top of your priority list. You only have so much time in the day, so you can double, triple or quadruple your sales with one product if they bill monthly.
Most of these sites offer Banners, Graphics and some of the Clickbank products offer articles already-written-for- you.
You can also have Articles written for you at a site called http://Textbroker.com to save you time. These article writers are in great demand all over the internet and you can filter them by price and/or experience.
I have used them in the past and have been very satisfied. I found one legal paralegal at this site who writes articles as a second income. You can assuredly find quality writers there, so check it out and save yourself some time and writer’s cramp for your blog and/or your email sequence for the future.
If you are wondering how you can get your Facebook fanpages to go viral..here is a solution.
Simply share viral content that is trending on Twitter, other Facebook fanpages, Youtube or the news. But how do you know what is trending?
#1 You can read the news online or go to Google Trends and it will tell you what the hottest topics/news is for today.
#2 You can go to Twitter and read the top posts for whatever subject you are interested in, but it may or may not be the hottest trending topic of the day, so basically you’ll have to use your best guess.
#3 You can go to Youtube and search for “popular” videos and filter them out page by page.
Or, you can use software that does this for you in seconds (my personal choice), because it saves you so much time.
I used this software this past week, and here is a great example of how one Facebook post can go viral. Look at the shares on this one:
Okay, I had to cut off the video because Fed Ex was at the door delivering a package from Santa a.k.a. my hubby =).

Today is important…I’m going to sing to you the First Day Of Christmas Video Tips (ha)! Just a little bit out of my comfort zone, but it was FUN! Right after I posted this, the wind knocked down my porch display, so it’s a good thing I got OUTSIDE first!
I just read a blog post about a guy named Stefan (very likable fellow) who is making over $70,000 a month with his blog. He began with publishing Kindle books that he outsourced for $25.
That one book brings him in about $50 – $100 a month, but he also uses a very smart marketing strategy to create a second income inside his Kindle books.
How did Stefan begin? When he saw the potential of growth with Kindle books and leveraging it to get traffic back to his blog, he found a virtual assistant to write his books for him.
Stefan now makes over $100,000 a year, just from that one income stream publishing Kindle books. If you want to see how he suggests that you can write a book in 24 hours and get it published on Kindle click here.
I began to upload books to Amazon’s Kindle program back in 2012, and still get royalties or Kindle payments each month straight into my bank account. However, after reading Stefan’s blog posts about his success, I have been inspired to be publishing more of my own books as well.
Stefan publishes books in all different sorts of niches. Most of his Kindle books he has written for him. In fact, the sole purpose of some of his Kindle books is to get more people or website traffic back to his blog (brilliant way to generate email subscribers).
How else does he create a passive income with his Kindle books? Other books he writes are in the health niches with links to Clickbank products such as treatments of common ailments. Clickbank is a called a “virtual” marketplace, because it is chock full of digital books on all subjects. I love Clickbank because I remember getting my first “green” Clickbank check in the mailbox.
Once you promote one of the products inside Clickbank and someone buys through your “affiliate link,” Clickbank will send you a check every two weeks like clockwork.
Stefan has done this quite successfully using Clickbank as a way to put his “affiliate link” inside his Kindle books as a second income stream for the same amount of work. Each Kindle book suggests a way to solve a burning problem that the reader is experiencing. In each Kindle book, he also links back to a form to collect each visitor’s email address so that he can market to that same customer again and again with offers that address a particular problem.
One example would be how to learn how to jump higher which is a feat most basketball or athletes yearn to learn. Clickbank has a book about that very topic. So, once you found a keyword such as “How do I learn to jump higher”, you write or hire someone to write a Kindle book about that subject and link to your page that captures subscribers.
Then, you sign up for an autoresponder like this one, and send your subscribers emails recommending that same Clickbank book and make approximately $25 a sale. This really works and is a viable source of income for many people online who are aware of this virtual marketplace.
Whether you are blogging for a living, or writing Amazon Kindle books, building a subscriber listis the smartest way to build a sustainable, long-term business online whether you are writing Kindle books or blogging. If you build a list of people who like your blog or video, you can send them more valuable tips and offers. Here is a guide that is similar to what I use to collect emails to this blog.
What if you want to create your own “Kindle empire,” but don’t really want to write? Stefan has that covered too, since he hires native English writers to create his content for him.
He simply does the keyword research to find out what topic that his next book should be about, and has created a video series to train his native English writer to write the book and upload it for him to Kindle. By putting this structure into place, he has been able to generate over $100,000 in one year in passive, residual income. If you are new to this idea, let me explain what some of these terms mean.
Affiliate Link – This link is given to you by virtually every company online that has an AFFILIATE program that you can usually find at the bottom of their page or in a TAB at the top of their blog. You simply sign up and they give you an individual link that is tied to your account.
When you put that link on your blog, video or in your Kindle ebook, and someone clicks on it and buys that product, you get a commission of the sale. The commission varies, but a place called Clickbank has one of the best commission structures in place, since you can make $25 from promoting a $37 ebook that can be downloaded instantly at any time, from any internet connection in the world.
Are you beginning to see why people love affiliate marketing? Affiliate marketing is promoting other people’s products. In fact, most of the Clickbank vendors (or product creators), offer tools such as banners, links and graphics like you see on this page to help you to promote their programs. Why? They pay you to advertise their products and are happy to get a percentage, since you are doing the work of advertisement for them.
What is Clickbank? It is a virtual marketplace where you can download ebooks or sell ebooks about a variety of topics.
Is it free to promote Clickbank or other products online? Yes!
Now, let’s back to how Stefan is making such a huge income with Kindle. By the way, if you are wondering exactly what I mean by “passive income,” I am referring to the kind of income that comes from doing the work once, but getting paid over and over for that same piece of content. Wouldn’t you agree that this concept is everyone’s dream?
Here’s a screenshot of just a few of Stefan’s Clickbank income:
How did Stefan accomplish this? He hired someone to write the book for him for $22.00 and someone else to create the cover for his book for $2.50. This is dirt cheap considering how much money this book is generating for him. He also has repeated this same process and has over a hundred more Kindle books like this. Those generate him about $20/month while others bring in income over $1000/month. It is pretty impressive that he has been able to build a six figure passive (without any extra work) through Kindle publishing.
Now, are you ready to either write your book or find out how to pay someone a small fee to do it for you? You can find out with Stefan’s guide here. Just begin with one simple book. When you do the first one, you will see how easy it is and you can speed up the process. Before you know it, you can have your own “empire” of Kindle books churning out royalty payments each month. Ready to try? Just do it. You’ll love seeing your name inside Amazon’s Kindle Platform. In fact, you can write a book and dedicate it to your Mom, your sister, girlfriend or boyfriend. There is no better gift than a book written in someone’s honor. I wrote a book called “Mama Says” of all my mother’s “sayings” to us growing up and showed it to her on the computer for Christmas. She was thrilled! It just took me one afternoon. Did you know that you can publish a Kindle book that is just 15 pages?
Or, just take a hobby and write about it. Don’t waste hours figuring it all for yourself and risk giving up too soon. This is too important. Skip ahead with Stefan’s guide here. You can write a book in less than 24 hours. I know you can. I’ve done it lots of times and you can too. What a legacy to leave to your children and grandchildren. Go after it. Don’t let anyone tell you, you “can’t.” There are seeds of greatness buried inside of you. Share it with the world and start with your first one tiny Kindle book. – Kristie
Hmmmm…how I love thee blogging…let me count the ways? Okay, sappy, but oh-so-very true!
When I discovered that I could write AND make a living online, I was hooked! After all, I started this adventure when I was going through a painful divorce and the lowest of my lowest time in my life.
At night, while waiting for my then teen-aged children to come home all in one piece, I would scour the internet on my old, trusty HP laptop looking for ways that I could work from home, or travel the world one day while working on my laptop. “Make money in your pjs” was a popular phrase back then and I often read until late at night, bleary-eyed numerous hypey, used-car sales-type sales page. I fell for it, spending my few dollars on this program and that.
I became a Mystery Shopper, (no offense if you like doing this), but I always felt like I was a “spy” on those poor girls/guys who were out there working hard for a meager minimum wage. Then, after I mystery-shopped at a restaurant or some shop that I was sent to, I had to spend the rest of the night filling out endless pages of questions about my visit, including questions like “what did the parking lot look like?” The parking lot? What? I guess it was clean. I never really noticed a parking lot condition, unless it had a big tree in the way of the drive-thru on the way to get my burger, fries and sweet tea, you know what I mean? The parking lot, for goodness sakes! I thought I would lose it.
But, I faithfully filled out the forms, knowing that in my heart of hearts, one day SOMETHING online would make me a million buck-a-roos and I would never have to work another day in my Baby Boomer life.
Well, fast forward to some 8 years later, and I do NOT work another day in my life, because I LOVE doing what I do online. What is that you say? It’s a mutli-tasked myriad of daily tasks of many years of learning many skills, but I’ve honed it down to mostly the ones that bring in the money in Paypal to pay the bills.
After all, isn’t that what counts if you are doing online marketing full-time? Yep, I think so. Plus, I feel like I’m helping others along the way avoid the stinky pitfalls that I fell into of wasting thousands of hours and weekends, plugging away on schemes that didn’t work or that I didn’t work them long enough to make them work. I accept responsiblity for having Internet A.D.D. I love that description of A.D.D. that goes something like this (Kristie Version):
Mary Had A Little Lamb, Wait! Where’s her staff? Oh, and what color is her staff? What Size Does Her Staff Come In? Can You Buy It on Amazon, or it is Cheaper on Ebay? And, where IS that book about Mary Had A Little Lamb I saw the other day? Hmmmm… I Wonder If It Comes In A Toy Version That I Can Buy My Grandbaby for Christmas and Oh, Is The Toy Version On Sale this weekend? Maybe..
Scary, right? Can you relate? I believe that this is especially true of entrepreneurs that have so much going on in our active, mocha-soaked brains, that it often comes out on our lips before we know it escapes, and people often ask us in amazement, “Uh, is that a brain sample of what is actually going through your head right now?” Weird-O-Rama, right? Oops, my Baby Boom generational kind-of-talk just showed up. Oh, well. Blogging is about being real, so I’m being real here and letting it all “hang out.”
Isn’t that what life is all about? Being real to those you love? And I love my subscribers, so let’s get back to that. Having a list of subscribers and a blog to keep subscribers coming back to you, is the key to having a successful blog. You can have a blog without subscribers to market products to, but it takes months, most of the time YEARS to make income from a blog without a decent amount of readers to attract advertisers or ads that make any substantial income.
I came to blogging through a different door. I came in through the Internet Marketing world, where I built this city,I built this city on (oh, that song is going through my head like a freight train) ……product creation and those who bought my products. It is there in the workshop of sweating out and birthing new products as fast as I could working until the wee hours of the morning to provide quality and income proof, that I have honed my craft. It is there that I studied my peers and what to do and what not to do, that makes all of this crazy online and virtual world a place I like to come back to day after day and many a night after night.
I have never studied anything so intently and with such passion as I have this one thing – making money online with your laptop from anywhere, anytime as long as you have a live, working, breathing internet connection.
Nothing business-related has ever fascinated me, intrigued me, and exhausted me like the hunt for true, work from home methods that any Mom, any Dad, any teen could actually do on the computer and make money from it. In my quest, I have researched or made money from almost all of these methods. I am going to list them to expand your thinking since you may not have had the luxury of time or the keen desire to chase down what is available online. So, let me allow you to feast your eyes on just some of the ways you can generate income from your laptop anywhere, any ‘ol time you choose to “start her up.”
Kindle Books – write them (free) or have them written for you (paid).
Amazon Affiliate Program – promote any one of thousands of products with (free) Youtube videos, simple blogger reviews (free) or Bing, Facebook or Google Ads. (paid)
Youtube Videos – to promote your products, other people’s products, or (real case study) a local Dog Sitter (charged a fee for video creation).
Website Creation – put up ads on Craigslist for inexpensive web design and created websites for a roofer, a caterer, a wedding photographer and the local pet sitter who was such a delightful client that loved her website and all of her new clients so much, she brought me a dozen yellow roses one day.
Mobile Marketing – still have a local client who pays me to monitor their Mobile Website.
Text Marketing – studied a course about how to promote text marketing to local business owners to bring their customers back in for the Deal of the Day, but didn’t get any takers on this venture.
Courses on How To Make Money With Youtube – Very successful and FUN when I see those sales roll into my Paypal account for ugly, dog videos promoting a dog training program that used to be on the virtual marketplace called Clickbank. In fact, I get weekly or daily commissions every day. That’s what I love about internet. Unlike me, it never sleeps and goes all over the world while I sleep. Hmmmm…that phrase on those ‘hypey” sales pages proved to be true.
Affiliate Marketing – ah, my personal favorite. Promote someone else’s hard work and get paid. Or, suggest services that I use myself and get paid by helping others find the golden nuggets that I’ve found really do work, after all.
Membership Sites – like this one. Take your best goodies and download a free Membership Plugin called Membership Pro on a WordPress site and start your own Membership site where you charge a monthly fee.
Google Adsense – Google adsense is where I saw my first $100 check way back when I was putting up free Blogger.net blogs. I would write a post or 2 or 5 a day, and then just add the box called “adsense” and began to get people to read my free blogs and some of them would click on the ads Google provides and I got paid. I am still using this way to make an extra stream of income on my other blog and love it.
Consulting for Local Businesses, charged a consulting fee to a guy about search engine optimization who was putting up a local car wash.
Coaching for online students by email.
Built a list of subscribers with “squeeze pages.” What is a squeeze page? It is a page with a form built-in with your autoresponder code that asks people for their emails, just like you see on this blog. I personally use the autoresponder called Aweber to send out my emails and Leadpages as a more professsional look for my forms to ask for people to subscribe to my blog.
Blogging using my own thoughts and knowledge of the internet as a ways to monetize your blog with free traffic such as Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and the apps called Buffer and Tailwind.
Why blogging? I love to write. I attended a $5000/head Mastermind group several years ago and met up with a guy named Matt who is a multi-millionaire from his online ventures. He pushed me to come to the Mastermind Conference having already written about 100 pieces of content. I showed up with 76 short stories, but it was enough to compile into my very first ebook that sold for $37 to a guy in Singapore, ready for this?
While I slept in my PJs! Yep, true story! I was delighted and after that weekend of seeing how the whole process worked of building your list of people who actually like you and want to hear where you have to say bad enough that they trust you with their email, I never looked back. Well, that’s not entirely true. I had to substitute teach in schools from you-know-where until I began to build a list of subscribers from launching products. But, when the income was sustainable, I quit teaching. Don’t get me wrong, I love children, but I don’t love the educational system or the threat of shootings in classrooms, these days.
One of the last times I was substitute teaching, the principal came down the hall and told me to ‘watch the doors, there was a shooting in the street nearby and they hadn’t caught the shooter.” I looked at those innocent children playing basketball in the gym and a tight ball of fear began to knot in my stomach. What a shame that our children and the teachers who try to protect them, have to endure that type of anxiety!
Nonetheless, I loved internet marketing and my children begged me not to go back to substitute teaching, so I spent even more hours determined to figure it out. I didn’t do it alone, and most successful folks online didn’t either. They read and studied other people’s successes and to a certain extent, modeled after them with their own unique and personal flavor.
So, where are you in this crazy online world? What obstacle do you need to take a flying leap over and conquer? Have you started your blog yet? Have you put a form on your blog to capture all of those lovely visitors and welcome them to your blog? Do you lay out the welcome mat with a Hello or a How-do-you-do? If not, can I suggest that today you do this? Do you now why the phrase “Just Do It” is so popular? It is the key to success in working out and getting it done. It is a call to action that runs quickly over any objections. So, let me say it to you. Don’t wait to start a blog and capture your visitors. Start right now, even if you don’t know all of those answers.
Be unstoppable. Be relentless. Be hungry to win. If you don’t how to do something online, go to Google or Youtube and just simply search for it. You may be surprised that 99% of the time you can find what you are looking for in those two search engines. Feed your mind with these thoughts of a winner as you will hear in this motivational video. I listen to as often as I have time.
The quickest way to making a full-time living online is simply this one thing.
Build a platform of viewers by blogging or by getting content spread out all over the internet where people want to read your blog plus your emails. Be everywhere your readers are!
Use that platform to brand yourself and have your audience hungry for what you have to say since it is something they need desperately. For example, if you are a Mom or a Dad that just earnestly desires to stay at home with your newborn child, you would give your eye-teeth for a way to do that. Blogging and building a subscriber list by having a “squeeze page” that asks for their email list, is one great example.
Here’s the rub: If you build a blog, they will come. Nope! That’s a myth.
Truth: If you build a blog that is worth reading, they will come. Nope! That’s a myth.
Will the Real Truth please stand up? Build a blog that is worth reading after a long day, that is full of images and valuable, inspiring, get in your face, get your teeth in it kind of a blog that is so good that it is spread all over the internet by people sharing it on social media. BINGO!
So, build a blog that offers the kind of content you would want to read late night, when you finally get home, after supper and want to spend a few moments skimming over blog posts and/or emails that show you how you can sleep until 9:00 am with no alarm set, and wake up and do only those activities that show off your creativity and passion.
Then, you have to share that content so that people actually see what you’ve slaved to write. How do you do that? In this video, I talk about my favorite 4 Valuable Ways to Get Traffic to Your Blog and build a subscriber list as a long-term asset for life:
Pinterest – share with the app called Tailwind.
Youtube – make a quick free video using screencast-o-matic.com and upload it to Youtube and tag it with keywords and a title that make you want to stop and watch it.
Instagram – a powerful social site where you can upload images and put a tag in there for people to come back to your website where you will have a form pop-up to ask for their email.
Facebook – people make friends, get new subscribers and actually make new income simply by posting on their own private profile or creating a Fanpage with valuable, juicy content that people subscribe to so that every time you make a post in your Facebook Fanpage, they get an email to read it.
Here’s an example of how I put this into action today, by making a free Youtube video and sharing it with the SHARE buttons below my video.
I use these other free resources:
Pixabay.com for free images that have creative common images that you can share.
Screencast-o-matic.com to record free videos
Masspinger.com for link juice.
There’s four more, really smashing good reasons you should start your own blog today. If you do decide to take up blogging, you will need a domain name and a “hosting” company that will hold the files to your blog and publish all of your information inside your blog to the worldwide web.
Here’s a linkthat will get you started with your own blog name for free. This company that offers really good support, if you have any questions.
The autoresponder I use that offers a Free Trial is GetResponse that you can find here. This is the way I send daily emails to my subscribers to talk to them, and offer products that I think will help them with my affiliate links.
Now, it’s your turn to share your content with the world. Go get ’em Tiger!
If you’ve seen all the emails about starting your own online store, and thought, hmmm…wonder how long would it take to make my first sale? Or, how would I sell items on my shop if I don’t have money for Facebook ads? Never fear. Shopify itself is a great resource for how to make your first sale. So far on my store called “Amazing Moms & Babies” this necklace has gotten the most sales and views.
I found this article below that I wanted to share with you that will answer probably most of your questions about setting up your own online store.
Also, I wanted to tell you that one of the sharpest guys in the online guru shark tank put out his own ecommerce store “secrets” yesterday. Each course being released lately on ecommerce touches on points that the other guy misses, so if you are SERIOUS about creating a part-time income stream that could lead into a full-time income, check out Matt’s training here.
In the meantime, take a moment and read 50 Ways To Make Your First Sale with Shopify (your own online store). I’m experimenting with using all free traffic such as Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for my Amazing Moms and Babies Too Shopify Store and picking out items that I would purchase myself since “birds of a feather flock together” and one of my girlfriends on Facebook told me last night she’s going to buy the first item I shared on my Facebook timeline – woohoo!
This is really exciting! I couldn’t sleep all night thinking of all the necklaces I’m going to put on my store (plus I drank a wee too much mocha yesterday).My daughter graduated from college with a degree in Fashion Design and works for a large show room where I get to occassionally visit and buy necklaces, ear rings and scarves for wholesale. Please know however, that I found my own supplier for my Shopify store. You can put your own store with Shopify here.
Plus, one of the best guides to advertising your Shopify store (Matt is making thousands a month) will have Matt guiding you step-by-step here, plus I will include my own personal cheat sheet on the 7 tips to building a profitable store that I found along with own journey to avoid pitfalls that I made.

Boom-sha-ka-la-ka! Man, I’m getting silly from drinking too much Diet Coke at the movies tonight.
There’s ten good reasons you should start your own blog today. If you do decide to take up blogging, you will need a domain name and a “hosting” company that will hold the files to your blog and publish all of your information inside your blog to the worldwide web. Here’s a linkthat will get you started with your own blog name. This company that offers really good support, if you have any questions.
Are you spinning your wheels? Frustrated? Trying to learn too many new things to concentrate on the things that you know that you can master or mastered in the past.
My name is Kristie Chiles-Arp and I have 1 question to ask you?
Why don’t you do this one thing?
Go back to what you are GOOD at it. Figure out what you love to do even if no one paid you do it. That’s your talent. That’s your big idea. Now, take that ONE BIG IDEA and make a million dollars out of it.
Shake that tree, but shake that one tree. Don’t go out and shake ten money trees and hope to make a $100 or $1000/month.
Figure out the one thing that you love doing online and do it over and over and over. For example, if you can write an ebook, slap a Paypal button on that book for $47.
Let’s do the math:
$47 X 212 Sales – $10,000/month salary for you. Now, if you have built an email list and you have captured those same 212 emails and built a subscriber list, you have a list you can market to over and over.
Don’t quickly write a new ebook, find 212 MORE people to sell that book to next month and build your list to 424 people that you can send emails and other offers to every month.
Now, you’ve brought in $19,928/month salary for the second month, plus the affiliate offers you email your list. The next month, get 626 to buy your $47 ebook, and you will have $29,892/month salary, in addition to income from other offers you send your list and 626 people on your subscriber list to market to over and over.
So, how can you achieve this? Each month, write down your goals for the month. If you add 10 new friends people to your Facebook Fanpage every day, by the end of the month, you have 300 people that you can post free offers to and send to your squeeze page.
Create a blog like this oneand make a blog post everyday. to teach your subscribers what you already know. Next, share that blog post on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Make a quick slideshow about the same blog content and post it to Youtube. Get that daily/weekly content out there churning sales and subscribers for you 24/7. This just plain works.
Shut down the doubts in your mind. What are you worried about? You can’t “break’ an email list. Can you tick people off? Sure. Will you tick people off? Definitely. Will people unsubscribe if the day ends in “y”? Most assuredly. Does it matter? Heck, no.
What does matter? Are you doing your best? Are you doing your VERY best with your talents you possess to add value to the world around you and the people who are struggling around you? Are you off track? Get back on. Are you confused? Get clarity.
What are you good at? Do it. Do it on Facebook. Do it on Youtube. Do it on Instagram. Do it on Pinterest. Share it all over Twitter. Don’t think about it. Just do it. Do it daily.
Don’t analyze it. Don’t waste time. Don’t recreate the wheel.Put your wheel into motion and run.Every single day, run that wheel and grow your business.What are you good at? Start there.
What is holding you back? It’s not that you don’t know you stuff.You are doubting yourself.Do the one thing that you think about while you eat or sleep. Be relentless.Be unstoppable.
Once you make some good income, invest that $500 – $2000 a month back into your business. If you are feeling frustrated or under pressure, it may be the pressure is coming from starting 10 new things a day and not focusing on your one big idea that comes naturally to you. That’s the key.
Do you know how to write copy? Write sales letter for other product creators. Write your own ebook and sales letter and put it up for sale on the Warrior Forum.
Do you know how to write an ebook? Sell it on Amazon. Sell it on your blog.
You will make more money putting MORE people into your funnel to sell your 1 awesome product.
Again, here’s a Daily Plan of Action:
Make 1 video a day.
Make 1 post a day and share it on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Youtube.
Just sell MORE of the one thing.
Scale out with the 1 item that is making money.
Later, create more ebooks and make a living doing that in the niche you love that has lots of buyers in it.
Add 5000 fans to your Facebook page and 2000 people a month to your subscriber list.
You can turn $1 into $100, then $100 into $1000, and then $1000 into $10,000 and beyond.
Go back to what you are good at!
What is your Big Idea?
Learn all you can about it. Don’t worry about the competition. Competition means there’s a lot of money to be made. Be better than your competition. Offer more than they do. Make an offer they can’t refuse. Make an offer YOU wouldn’t refuse. Chase it hard.Don’t doubt yourself. Just do it.
After working in the legal field for ages, it is such a relief to be able to set mine own schedule and work from my laptop. I am actually happily typing this in a doctor’s office where I am waiting for a family member.
Working from my laptop has afforded freedom that I could never have gotten from a “boss.” This last year has been life-changing with family members needing all of our family close by, so working from literally “anywhere” on my MacBook laptop has been quite a life-saver.
2 Things have enabled me to do this:
Having a Subscriber List
Knowing how to promote products
Now, specifically my subscriber list comes from creating information products (which I love since I have a teaching background), but having multiple streams of income has also helped a great deal as well. Having a blog like this one where I can share what I have learned and specifically recommend products, is a great way to create additional income from home. It is something you can do as well.
Setting up a blog and sharing it on Pinterest has increased my subscriber list faster than I could have ever believed possible. Finding the site called Tailwind that automatically posts and re-posts your content has also proven to be a great way to bring visitors to this website.
One future goal for this blog is to attract advertisers. I have learned from reading other blogs on Pinterest that once you can prove you have substantial traffic to your blog, it opens up a another stream of income with advertisers which I plan to take advantage of in the upcoming year.
Other ways to share any kind of content with the world are the social network sites known as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. When I got my head out of the sand, and began to realize that people really DO hangout and read content on those sites as well, my traffic has increased even more.
By reading other Pinterests PINS and related websites, I have been reminded that advertising is a great stream of passive income for bloggers. With that in mind, I have begun to broaden my thinking and my daily activities to increase my traffic and thus, increasing my subscriber base as well.
Learning to create valuable content that I would have like to read myself when I was just beginning a few years ago is one of my weekly activities. My next step is to share the content, otherwise it is like creating a lemonade stand in the dessert.
In other words, it is there for those that are thirsty, but the roads to the lemonade stand are empty because the traffic is elsewhere. I will never forget watching another marketer’s video about website traffic. He was riding along in his car filming his car ride and showing us the traffic on the highway with his cell phone. This, he said, is exactly like the internet operates. You just have to get in front of the traffic and put your “billboard” up for them to see. How many of us grew up seeing “Visit Rock City” on the highway? Even though we may have never visited Rock City, we knew it existed because of those multiple billboards along the highways and freeways.
The internet is a lot like that. You put up a website or a blog and then you wait for the people to flock to you. All you hear is “crickets” because no one but YOU, knows how wonderful your blog is and the products you recommend that built that beautiful blog. Writing the content is only the first step. It’s a great first step, but you must spend as much time promoting WHAT you wrote as you did actually writing your blog post.
6 Ways To Get People To Read Your Blog Posts
How do you do that? You do that by sharing it on Pinterest, scheduling posts on sites like Buffer (free) and Tailwind (small fee). Then, you create Youtube videos with free screenshare software like http://screencast-o-matic.com that draws more visitors to your blog by linking your Youtube visitors back to your blog with your blog URL (or address) underneath your video. You create a free Facebook Fanpage that links back to your blog and share valuable content that makes people hungry for MORE of what you have to say. It’s that easy. It’s simple, but it does take time to write and share the posts, but if you start right now, next month or next year could be life-changing for you. Google Plus is also very powerful and you can share absolutely everything on there with “keywords” that will bring in visitors to your blog where you promote products.
Want a blog like this one? You simply sign up for a free name to your blog and hosting. I recommend BlueHost.
It’s not hard, it just pays to be consistent with posting really helpful content that you yourself would find useful.
Enjoy your day. Make it count. Start a blog that can put your children through school, and put money in the bank for when you don’t want to work another day in your life.
