What the heck do the big dogs like me do online to make all kinds of cash?
Internet marketing is no longer getting an exact match domain, ranking it on page one of google and monetizing with adsense. It’s business now that needs money, a team and marketing, and not marketing gimmicks to make a buck.
let me tell you how I built my online business… and how you can build yours
1 Find a business partner
You should already know you can only expand as much as you are capable of carrying… and that is not much. I’m telling you, If I had hired a team earlier, I would have built this blog in two months instead of two years.
You can’t do everything by yourself, as a matter of fact, you can do very little by yourself, read this too see what I’m talking about:
2 Start a blog
I have been blogging ever since I started this blog almost daily, and just now it started paying off, I’ve invested a lot of time and money without knowing whether I’d get it back or not, cause that’s how you run a business – by taking risks and investing in your vision.
This is what you need to build a killer blog like mine:
3 Start an online store
Let me tell you a quick story:
A few years ago a few friends of mine started a plastic distributing company, you know, they sell cups and wraps and all kinds of plastic materials. They grew the company pretty fast and I was like:
‘good job, but you need to create an online store, that’s where the money is at”
…and quoted a famous person (don’t remember who it was) who said: ‘if your business is not online, you may run out of business’.
It took them a while to really get what I was saying, yet the other day I got a call from one of them that went something like this:
“Vladi, I can’t thank you enough for urging us to start the eshop, it’s been 5 years now and when we take a look at the books, we have made 60% more sales since people started finding us online.
It’s a local business and it’s easier to outrank the competition, but still, that’s pretty solid… and if you don’t have your own products, you can always dropship.
4 write a book
Go read mine right now:
Nothing makes you an authority like a book… and you should know authority is everything online… with all the fake shit going on.
Write a book and become an authority instantly… and you will sell.
5 Update your old articles
I did not care about my old articles until about a month ago when I found out they were more powerful than my new ones after updating.
6 Look at internet marketing as a long term investment
…instead of some quick way to make a buck. You are going to have to put all your energy and time (and some money) to get your business going… it’s not the 90s, everybody is trying to make money online nowadays.
7 learn how to promote
I’ve searched out a few articles for you:
and of course get on my list and follow what I do (use the form to your right).
8 Learn how to sell
That’s what you should really concentrate on. When you learn how to sell, you will have a huge advantage over half the internet, if not more, cause they can’t sell.
Even most huge marketers can’t, they can only promote, and there is a huge difference.
Again, use the form and follow me.
9 learn how to entertain
…and that’s when all the magic happens. I did not have to learn it as I’ve always had it in me, if you are like that too, awesome, people love to be entertained, that’s all they look for… even when they don’t.
Create entertaining content instead of ‘the best content’, like most ‘gurus’ advise people, and you will create a huge following.
That’s what online business is all about today.
