How can you make money online through a website or blog?
I get asked that a lot. Sometimes it is just easier to point someone to some reading material and see if they come back.
I don’t mean to be rude, it is just that some people are really hoping for an easy answer. You know, like “hit this button and cash will pour out of your @#$!”
That is just not real.
Don’t get me wrong. I am on a mission to separate the BS from the real stuff and pass on my findings. We all have to start somewhere and I have made my share of mistakes in the process. So, I try to give people a bit of homework first.
The fact of the matter is that I really have a short list of people I recommend. Frankly, there are just too many people out there that, at some point, start selling crap.
Sure, there is money to be made, but you have to do things right…no short cuts.
I think anyone intersted in making money online should read Darren Rowse’s book 31 Days to Build a Better Blog.
Because if you are not willing to do the work, you will save your time by not starting down an agrevating road of always buying the next shiny object or looking for a magic bullet.

As if “making money online” was not a hot enough subject in its own right, this week Internet marketers saw the first preview of Kajabi (software designed to help you sell just about anything online).
So is it real or just hype? First, let’s back up for just a minute.
Despite what just about everyone will tell you, making money online does require some work. You can’t just build a web page in 30 seconds and watch the cash come rolling in (sorry to break it to you). With that said, you can create great passive income with a few things in place.
1. Pick a Niche – Don’t go after the “whole enchilada” as they say. If you are interested in the Weight Loss category, pick a segment of it. Something like, “How to eat a proper breakfast to help you lose weight.” A small niche helps you get through to more, targeted, people in the long run. Continue reading “What is Kajabi? Will It Help Me Make Money Online?”
There is no shortage of internet businesses to choose from. Most are junk, some are good, and few can be an incredible success. Many people fall for the “junk” category as they are chasing “millions of dollars” and quick riches.
There is a check list of items you need to go over to be sure you are getting into the right area. At the top of the list is the fact that it needs to be something you care deeply about. You need to be passionate about whatever you are trying to sell.
Too many people try and do an online business that they could care less about. At some point you will need to write articles, speak to people, or make comments on other sites. If you are “just in it for the money” this will come off and you will fail. No doubt.
So, what does it take to be successful online?
Well, if you had a million dollars right now, in your hands, what would you be doing for a living? You don’t have to worry about money, you don’t have to worry about success. So, what really interests you?
Your answer will point you in the right direction. It is probably a current hobby or something you have always wanted to do – just never had the time.
