According to Forbes, Stephen King has managed to earn roughly $433 million from writing books. I've never once heard anyone insinuate that it's somehow wrong for Stephen to sell his books instead of just giving them away. When it comes to blogging, however, the idea of "making money blogging" has gotten a bit of a bad wrap. Some people, who believe it's impossible assume that the only way to earn online income is by being scammy or spammy. Others insinuate that it's somehow dishonest to earn mo

I once took piano lessons. For six months. Later, I played the trumpet in band. For six months.In high school, I took guitar lessons. For six months.Today, I am NOT a musician. Why? Because I didn't want it badly enough to stick it out.You've heard this before, but it's worth repeating - successful careers are almost never built in a short period of time.Every once in a while, some prodigy comes along with a particular superpower or skillset and gets rich and famous by age 20. The problem is, y

I recently sent an email to my list about a fantastic piece of video software that I personally use and recommend. The link I shared was my JVZoo affiliate link for the product. Whenever I hit "send" on an email like that, I then try not to look at any analytics for several hours, just to keep myself from obsessing over results.At the end of the first day, I'd received 500 click-throughs to the link and made 17 sales, earning $544.50 in commissions. Not bad.At the end of day two, something pecu

The internet has obviously opened up the potential for almost anyone willing to learn new things to earn an online income. The question is, can anyone who wishes to do so earn a LOT of income online? Sort of. I'm a big believer in using systems that work. When a system works, if you work the system faithfully, you'll get some results. Obviously if you want great results, you have to add some personal finesse to how you work the system. For example... If you buy a good domain about coffee makers

A year ago today, I became a premium member here at Wealthy Affiliate, and I can honestly say it's been one of the better investments I've made in my online business.I point others here all the time in a couple of my email courses, in the sidebar of my website, and even in personal conversations over coffee with aspiring bloggers and online marketers. If you're wondering what the big deal is, here are the four big reasons I'm thankful I decided to invest in premium membership and have no plans

One of the biggest lessons I've learned in this last year of growth in my online business is my need to focus (a little) less on blogging and a little more on email.This advice doesn't necessarily apply to niche / review sites as much as it does to you who see blogging as a platform for influence. Most of the people I've coached about blogging say the same thing - "I really need to write more blog posts." Maybe. Maybe not. I obviously don't advocate abandoning your blogging - writing great cont

I just wanted to pass this along. I received a marketing email from Todd Brown (http://marketingfunnelautomati...) and it contained a bit of marketing genius I just couldn't keep to myself...Note: I wrote this almost 3 years ago. But it's still something I use every day in my marketing campaigns. It's a quick read..."Pluralizing The Verb In Your Marketing Funnel"It’s amazing how one additional letter in your headline can impact conversions.Let me give you one example of how one letter&hel

I've been in digital marketing for over a decade, but I've always worked for others, building lists, websites, and social media profiles for the companies and people for whom I've worked. And I LOVE having served in that way. To extend the life and voice of someone else who has a great message is a great privilege.I had piddled around with affiliate marketing, promoting a link or two here and there. In 2016, I made $363.78. All year. Around Black Friday of last year, I stumbled on Wealthy Affil

I started preaching when I was eighteen years old. I wondered at the time, who would want to hear what I have to say?A year later when I was nineteen, a church asked me to become their pastor. And I thought, who would want me to lead them?A little over a decade ago, I started a blog. But I did so amid much self-doubt as I kept asking myself the question, who would want to read what I have to write?Six years ago, my wife and I started a church and I wondered, who would want to come?But guess wha

Some people write books, because writing a book seems like such a success-oriented thing to do. Others start blogs because they hear that blogging can make you rich and famous. And then there is social media with its promise of celebrity-making for the average people who don't live in Hollywood. The problem is, too many people are dabbling. We're hoping that one trick, perhaps undiscovered by all the other hopefuls like us, will pay off with instant fame or fortune.And it can. Some people have
