How to Get More Twitter Followers Instantly? – 5 Tips

Social media marketing is the crucial part of the online business. If you don’t use it you will miss a big part of the possible profits. Using social media can be also time-consuming if you don’t know what to do there.

Today I’m going to give you five tips how to get more followers on Twitter which is one of the biggest and powerful social media networks online.

As you get more followers you will get more visibility. And when you get more visibility you will get more potential customers to your business and more profit. You have also better possibilities to affect people’s life positively.

After reading this text you don’t need to wonder anymore how to get more Twitter followers instantly.

TIP 1 Provide Important Value

This is the foundation of social media marketing and online business in general. You will need to provide some value for the customers that they will be interested in you. Provide something that will make their life better or easier.

For example, if someone is looking for ways to lose weight, you can give him good tips.
If someone is looking for how to make business better, you can help him.

Give people something valuable. When the people have received something useful from you, they will initially trust you more and you will gain some authority in their eyes.

TIP 2 Follow People interested in the same subject

One great way to get more followers is to follow other people. That’s because they will probably follow you back.

Crucially important is to get “targeted followers’”. It means that they are interested in the same subject as you are. If you are interested in the online business you can follow the people that are also interested in the online business. You will more likely to get more retweets and likes when your followers are targeted and interested in the same subject.

It is often said that 10,000 targeted followers are better than 100,000 non-targeted followers.

That’s definitely true because what profit it will give to you if 100,000 people follow you but they aren’t interested at all in your subject?

Still, be careful not to follow (+unfollow) too many people at the time. Twitter rules prohibit this behavior and Twitter has banned some accounts who have made this.

But I would say that if you are not following more than 200 followers/day you shouldn’t be afraid of being banned.

How to get unlimited twitter followers

Follow people on Twitter to get more followers.

TIP 3 Use Twitter Tools

If you want to make social media marketing effectively, you will have to use tools. Using tools will save tons of hours of your time over the years.

The magical word in the online business is AUTOMATION. The more you automate the things the better.

If you use for example every day 5 minutes to do something that makes over 30 hours a year. If you write the same tweet 365 times you will lose 30 hours if we compare that you could use the tool that publishes the tweet 365 times for you.

Twitter tools will also help you to follow more targeted people faster. My favorite Twitter tools are Manageflitter and Tweepi.

TIP 4 Use Images

There are 3 reasons for this.

1.Images will get the attention better than only the text. You can also try to get people’s attention using CAPS LOCK or USE EXCLAMATION MARKS!!! But be aware that this can irritate some people.

2.Images are easier to find in Twitter. Some people may scroll your images afterwards and they may click the image you had published before two months. But it’s quite unlikely that they would find the text you published before two months.

3.Images help to remember the message more easily. People are visual by nature. We are just attracted to images and they help us to learn better. 1 word tells more than the thousand words. (See How to Get Free Images)

Tip 5 Use Motivational Quotes

People just love motivational quotes. They are short and easy to remember. People tend to retweet motivational quotes more than “average tweets”.

Retweets help you to get new followers because more people will see your profile. Think for example, if 1,000,000 could see your tweet how many of them will eventually follow you. Compare if 10,000 people see your tweet how many of them will follow you.

The changes are way higher for the first one.

Summary

With these 5 tips you will get more twitter followers for sure.

1.Provide important value
2.Follow People Interested in the same subject
3.Use Twitter tools
4.Use Images
5.Use Motivational Quotes

The Ways to Avoid Scams Online – 5 Incredible Tips

Using these tips you will never fall into scams.

There are thousands of scams online. We can easily say that people have lost millions of euros in the pocket of online cheaters who are earning money illegally or with unethical ways.

I have written this article to help you avoid online scams and save your money from the cheaters. You should only use your money for the reliable online programs. I also made a video where I walk you through these 5 tips to avoid scams online and I give you some very practical tips. I believe you will enjoy it.

Tip 1 Avoid Too Big Promises

The old saying goes, “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is”. There are online programs with the false testimonies like, “I earned 10,000$ within the first week.”

That kind of promises may sound appealing but as far as I know that kind of promise is never true. Everything worthwhile in life requires efforts and it’s exactly the same with the online business.

Would you imagine to earn $10,000 within the first week in the normal business where you don’t invest a single dollar (or $10 maximum)? Don’t imagine to make $10,000/month right after starting in the online world. That’s not the reality.

I know that you can make $10,000/month, $20,000 or even $100,000/month online because many other people are doing it honestly. But the point is that all of those guys have made lots of work to achieve their online success.

Tip 2 Read the Reviews

There are a lot of reviews about the reliable online programs. If the program is legit and you can benefit from it, the chances are that someone else has used the program before and wrote the review about it.

I write reviews here in YourOnlineRevenue to tell you about the legit products and warn you about the scams. I write my reviews as honestly as I can, so you can trust in my words about the programs.

I have one experience when I didn’t use this principle. I went to one website that promised me a lot of Twitter followers for free fast.

The page looked like the scam and I thought that probably I need first to search more about this website in Google.

I was so excited about the possibility to get more followers that I didn’t read the reviews. The result: The website sent 2 spam messages to all of my Twitter followers.

The good thing was that I didn’t use any money there and I learned the lesson that it’s always important to investigate first if something seems a bit suspicious.

Many times I have been about to try the interesting product but then I have realized read some honest reviews before and decided not to waste my time.

Just make a quick search in Google, “Is PRODUCT_NAME a scam?” or “PRODUCT_NAME review”.

NOTE: Some people are writing positive reviews about the scam products because they may earn the commission if you join. Be careful and read for example 3 reviews before joining or find the reliable source where you can find the product.

Search for the background

Tip 3 Investigate the Founders

Everything depends on the leader/founder. Is the founder reliable? Does he shows his face and identity or is he unknown like the mystical Q in “TooDamnEasy” program.

Can you find information about the founders on the internet? What other people say about them?

Do they have a long experience? Do they use their own principles in order to succeed?

Tip 4 Ask Reliable Online Entrepreneurs

In Wealthy Affiliate, you can find persons who have a very long experience in the online business. Some of them have been doing online business even 15 years.

You can contact them personally in WA and in my experience they have always answered the questions.

Their eyes are experienced to see which one is a scam and which one is a legit program.

You can also always ask us in YourOnlineRevenue.com and we promise to give find you the honest answer. Just leave the comment below and most of the time we will come up with the answer within 24 hours.

Tip 5 Investigate the Free Material First

Usually, you can find the free material from the program. In Wealthy Affiliate, you will get 10 free lessons, 2 free websites and other features for free. You can try if the program is really legit or not.

All of the programs don’t provide free material but you can find it from the other websites.

For example, Chris Farrell Membership (a legit program) has free teachings in Youtube. You can see if the program is really providing value.

Niche Blitzkrieg is also a legit program but there is not a free trial. Still there is a full money-back guarantee and you can find a lot of reviews on the Internet.

My #1 recommendation Wealthy Affiliate provides 20 free videos lessons for free. After studying their free material you can well decide if you want to continue to their premium program or not.

BONUS Insight!

I have been in the online business for a good while. One natural thing I have noticed is that the more I review”Make money online” -products, the faster I spot scams.

Many scams just follow same patterns and they give you the same story in a little bit different covers.

Let’s take for example three programs Phoenix Power Rising, Pure Leverage System and My Lead System Pro. All of them are based on the following idea:

1.You join to their program
2.You invite other people to join
3.You make money when your referrals buy something.

All of them have very high membership fee which will motivate you to refer other people so you could earn back the money you have lost to the program.

When you gain experience on your online business your eyes will spot scam products much faster than before. In addition, you will see what it really takes to make lots of money online.

The Ways to Avoid Scams Online – Summary

Using these 5 ways to avoid scams online

1 Avoid Too Big Promises
2 Read the Reviews
3 Investigate the founders
4 Ask Reliable Online Entrepreneurs
5 Investigate the Free Material First

You will never fall into the scams.

If you can’t find any information about the program from the Internet, no one of the online entrepreneurs know about it, the program doesn’t offer any free material I would say that the programs are a scam. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY IN SCAMS.

What is Affiliate Marketing Online? – Explained Simply

What is Affiliate Marketing Online

Think about big companies, for example, Amazon, Target or Walmart. They sell millions of products every day. Would you like to have your own part of the winnings made in their sales? That’s possible through affiliate marketing.

Have you heard that term “affiliate marketing”?

Today I’m going to explain to you what is affiliate marketing means and how you can earn money doing that.

Amazon, Target, Walmart and many other (also very small) companies have “affiliate programs”. That means that anyone can sell their products.

You put the link to your website, social network, email list or anywhere else. When someone clicks the link and ends up buying some of their products you will get the commission of the sold products.

The commission varies a lot  in different affiliate programs. For example, the commission in Amazon’s products is 4-10% while other companies may give even 80% commission. And everything in between. (Here is a great and illustrative lesson by the successful affiliate marketer how affiliate marketing works in practice)

Why Being an Affiliate Marketer is Great?

You don’t need former experience or skills. You don’t need own products. But you need to be willing to learn.

The process of affiliate marketing is simple. Company A sells products. You (affiliate) leave the link somewhere on the Internet. Person A buys the product. The company gets money and you get money. Simple?

The great thing is that many times you can get the commission from the products that you are not even linking!

If you have the link for example to Amazon kindle books. Someone clicks the link but end up buying men’s boxers, you will get the commission. If someone buys the $500 TV, you will get the commission.

There are no income limits in affiliate marketing. Do you know Pat Flynn? He is the guy who makes over $100,000/month online and a big amount of his success comes from affiliate marketing.

Who is Affiliate Marketing for?

Affiliate marketing can be a great way to earn for anyone. Here are some examples

  • If you are a student and want to earn extra income
  • If you are a housewife and want to earn extra income
  • If you want to live anywhere you want and earn money online
  • If you want to be your own boss = entrepreneur
  • If you want to earn passive income
  • If you want to sell products that are highly profitable
  • You name it! 🙂
What is Affiliate Marketing Online

Is he an affiliate marketer? Probably.

In my opinion, affiliate marketing is just a great resource but many people are not even aware of that. I didn’t know this opportunity before but I’m glad that I have found it.

There Are Tons of Affiliate Programs on the Internet!

Amazon, Target and Walmart are by no means the only affiliate programs. There are affiliate programs for any niche that you can imagine. Just write to Google “some niche + affiliate program” and you will find an affiliate program in any niche.

Wealthy Affiliate also helps you to find relevant affiliate programs that you may want to be part of.

Even the smallest niches have affiliate programs and you will be astonished how many they are.

Remember, affiliate marketing is not a MLM-program or anything related!

Do you want to learn more how affiliate marketing works? Wealthy Affiliate is the training center and community that teaches everything you need to be a successful affiliate marketer.

Are You Willing to Pay the Price for Success?

Are You Willing to Pay the Price for Success

“We see their glory but don’t understand the story.”

Have you seen that iceberg already in my Wealthy Affiliate review?

In my opinion, it illustrates greatly the price for success. How do you understand success?

One great definition of success is “The correct or desired result of an attempt.” In other words, you do something and when you get the desired result, you have succeeded.

What does success mean in online business? For many people, it means extra income, full-time income or financial independence. What is a success for you in online business? $200/month, $1,000/month or $10,000/month?

There is Always a Price for Success!

Let’s say that you want to earn the full-time income online, working from home. In order to achieve that, you need to work a certain amount of time. You need to learn the skills to provide value for people. Then you need to reach the people for example in your website, social network or on the email list.

First of all, this requires time. You can’t expect to learn everything in one day. But you can expect to learn it in one year.

But the interesting thing is that when people start the online business and confronts the first failure (see the iceberg), many people quit. Some people succeed for the first try but most of the successful people have failed many times before making the real breakthrough.

Thomas Edison failed 10 000 times before inventing the light bulb. How many times you are willing to fail?

Before I thought that failure is the opposite of success. Now I know that failure is the part of success.

Disappointments and THE GOOD NEWS

We disappoint usually when our expectations don’t come true in the real world. That may happen in our life. We don’t know what the future brings.

But remember the Good news! There are also a lot of situations when you get more than you have expected. Like this guy who started earning over $10,000/month after working online for a bit over one year.

Don’t let your expectations define  your success.

Sometimes you will get more than you expected, sometimes less.

Focus on giving your best and you will get what you earn. If you get fewer rewards than you expected think how you could work better next time and get rewarded bigger.

Price for Online Success

Success online isn’t different than success offline. There are no shortcuts. (Although some scammers so claim falsely!)

You will need to work. You will need to learn. You will need to be persistent.

But think about the consequences. Work for a “normal job” for 3 years. You start by earning $2,500/month. And after 3 years you are still earning $2,500/month or if things go well $2,600/month. Would it be better to work online for 3 years and start earning $10,000/month?

I’m not saying that you will automatically earn $10,000/month after working 3 years online. It depends on highly how much you are willing to work and pay the price. As I said before you will get more or less as you have expected. But don’t let your expectations define your success.

Having an online business requires also some discipline as any other important thing. You may just want to scroll Facebook news feed but that doesn’t build your business. You need to focus on the most important things. Good concentration will give you better results in less time. (Remember Pareto 80/20 Principle)

Good Concentration -> Good Results. Bad Concentration -> Bad Results.

Are You Willing to Pay the Price?

Those who pay the price will get the prize. Nothing worthwhile in life comes without work and the price. You know it’s easy to get a fast pleasure eating fast food, drink beer, horse around with your friends or and doing things like that.

If you want to be fit, earn $10,000/month or achieve something worthwhile, honestly, sometimes you need to delay the gratification.

But think about the prize. Is it worth it? Where do you want to be after 3 years? If having an own online business and earning passive income would be great results start your own online business in Wealthy Affiliate for free today!

Do you want to win the prize? First, pay the price!

Is Alexa Ranking Important?

Alexa is the company that analyzes and provides website traffic of the websites. (Alexa is a wholly owned subsidiary of Amazon.com

You can see the statistics and traffic from any website by writing the website URL and searching it from Alexa.

You can try it right away in Alexa.com if you want.

http://www.alexa.com/

Write URL and click “Find”.

Here is, for example, the some statistics of the highly popular social media website, Pinterest.com.

How Important Is Alexa Ranking.

Pinterest Rankings

Alexa also gives statistics of the many other metrics where are the people located using that site, how engaged people are, what is their gender, education and so on. (You can follow me on Pinterest.)

But how reliable Alexa rankings really are and is it important to get your Alexa ranking better? Let’s find out!

How Does Alexa Get Their Data?

Alexa gets their data from people who have installed Alexa toolbar in their browsers. Alexa then tracks the traffic of those users and gets the statistics according to the users of the toolbar.

There are also other plugins and toolbars that Alexa uses to track their traffic.

Still, Alexa certainly doesn’t get the track from all of the users on the internet but only a little amount of it.

Alexa ranking can give you some insight of your website popularity and traffic but it’s not the most reliable one. There are many reasons why you shouldn’t concentrate on the Alexa ranking too much.

If you want to know how your (or any other) website is ranked in Google I recommend you to use Jaaxy. It’s Free to start and very easy to use.

Example from the Successful Online Entrepreneur

 

The highly successful Online Entrepreneur and creator of the Wealthy Affiliate Kyle told his own experience. He wanted to test the reliability of Alexa by his own websites. He has many own websites and he chose to compare two of them, let’s call them Website A and Website B.

Website A got unique 20,000+ visitors per day while Website B got “only” 1,000+ visitors per day. So according to that, Website A’s Alexa ranking must be way better than B’s ranking. Was it?

NO! Website B was getting actually double the traffic that A was getting according to Alexa. So Alexa’s ranking and statistics were totally false.

You Can Actually Buy Alexa Rankings

There are different tools and packages that Alexa sells. I don’t recommend them. You can get the same (and actually more accurate) information for free from other tools like Google Analytics.

Alexa rankings aren’t reliable also for the reason that there are many ways to manipulate the Alexa traffic.

Buy Alexa Ranking

People are actually paying money to get their Alexa ranking better

If you are interested in that kind of tools you can find them on Google but I don’t recommend to use them because Alexa ranking is not so important. Use your money for better tools like for Wealthy Affiliate premium to learn more about earning money online.

Alexa Ranking Tells Something but…

According to Alexa, top-ranked web pages on the internet are

1.Google
2.Facebook
3.Youtube

Yahoo, Wikipedia, Twitter and Amazon are also in the top 10. So we can definitely say that Alexa ranking gives you some information about the traffic and ranks in the search engines. These websites are highly popular and deserve their place in the top.

Still, I wouldn’t concentrate too much on the Alexa ranking because

1.It doesn’t show traffic accurately
2.The rank can be easily manipulated (you can buy better rankings).

Instead, I recommend you to concentrate more important things in your Online Business like creating valuable content, SEO and others.

5 Benefits of Having Own Domain Name, and Where to Get it?

where to buy a domain name

Let me start saying that getting your own domain is nowadays dead easy. You don’t need special skills or knowledge.

Would you like to have your website’s name be “yourwebsite.wordpress.com” or “yourwebsite.com”. I prefer the latter.

5 Benefits of Having Your Own Domain

1.You Own a Website. When you have an own domain, you now have some own space on the internet. And all the time you build and develop your website your space gets bigger and better.

2.Control. Having the own domain gives you the freedom do literally anything you what within your website. Design, context, text, images, links, money making sources, everything is under your control. You can even make your website a social media or community if you want.

3.Ranks better. Having an own domain seems to rank better in search engines than subdomains, like xxxxxxx.wordpress.com, xxxxxxxxx.blogpsot.com, xxxxxxxx.siterubix.com or others.  Subdomains can also rank very well if the website is high quality but own domains tend to rank better.

4.Brand/Authority. Do you know the Brands like Youtube, Facebook or Amazon. Those are all highly successful websites and at the same time ultimately valuable brands. Those brands are worth millions (or even billions). Having your own domain gives you credibility and reliability because your visitors will recognize you easier.

5.Domain is an asset. Its value grows. Think your website as a real estate. You own the land and the house from the country called Internet. As you build your house (your website) bigger and better its value grows. All the time you put effort to make it better its value rises on the Internet. You can actually own many websites like you can own many houses but be careful not to concentrate on too many things at the same time.

There are also other benefits but these are at least very crucial reasons. Let’s go into the process of getting the own domain name.

Namecheap – Cheap, Easy and Practical

I have bought my own domain names from Namecheap.com. Some of the cheapest domain names are under 1€ for the first year but most of the domain names cost a bit under 10€/year. With he price of one pizza you can have an own domain. Certainly not expensive.

You can search for different domain names by typing your search in the box and click enter.

Benefits of Having Own Domain Name

NameCheap shows you which domain names are available.

The page shows you the results. You can buy your domain name can end to .com, .org, .net or whatever you want. Still, I recommend you to have .com domain name because they rank better in the search engines.

After viewing the results, you can consider which one of the domain names you want to buy. You add it to the cart, create an account (takes 30 seconds) and you have an own domain name.

To be honest, before getting interested in website stuff and online business I thought that having an own domain name (like mywebsite.com) would need some skills and it would be difficult. But as you can see it’s actually dead easy!

Domain Hosting

After you have your own domain you will need to get domain hosting.

There are countless places where to buy domain hosting on the Internet. I’m using domain hosting by Wealthy Affiliate which includes in the premium membership. Wealthy Affiliate’s domain hosting is reliable and high-quality.

I have never had any problems with Wealthy Affiliate‘s domain hosting and they have 24/7 support if you have any issues.

Summary

Own domain name is certainly worth it. It costs only about 10$/year but the benefits can be enormous.

I recommend you to get an own domain NameCheap because it’s easy and fast to use. It doesn’t require any special skills and as its name says, it’s very cheap.

I hope this text is helpful to you if you are thinking to get your own domain name. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below.

If you have owned domain names where you have bought them and why?

How to Choose Niche? Find Out 4 Great Tips!

How to choose niche for blog

If you are going to make online business (and earn money online) first you need to choose your niche.

Let’s define, what is a niche?

According to dictionary.com, “A niche is a distinct segment of a market“.

Your niche can be literally anything. Your hobby, an interest, a passion, a problem, a need. Literally anything. There are billions of people today in on the Internet and they are making billions of searches every day. There is a huge need.

#1 You Must to Be Interested in Your Niche

When you are thinking your niche I think one the most important things is that you are interested in your niche. If the only reason for choosing a niche is because you want to make money I’m 99% sure that your motivation will end at some point.

You will be working related to your niche a lot. You need to provide content and value for other people in that niche. You need to learn new all the time and make some “research”.

So, start thinking what are your interests.

But we change all the time as a person. You can get interested in the new niche. For example, before I wasn’t interested in making money online niche but now I am.

David Schwartz taught in his classical book that when you dig deep down into new subject you will be more interested about it.

#2 Other People Must be Interested in Your Niche

Simply “a niche is really a group of people looking for stuff” (check this out!).

Let’s think about some examples. People can be interested in gym, hiking, playing saxophone, manga series, relationships, Greek language or fancy clothes.

There are so many different niches. With the Internet, you can easily find people who are interested in your niche. Think about selling Greek language teaching in your local town? The changes are that many people are not interested in that niche. But on the Internet, you have thousands and thousands of people who are interested in your niche.

How to choose niche for blog 2

There are a lot of great niches related to dogs

 

Even the niches that seem to be small can be enormous on the Internet. Even if there wouldn’t be anyone who is interested in your niche at your country, there may be millions of interested people on the internet.

Don’t be too broad with your niche.

#3 Let’s Talk About Competition

Many people think that “Blah, I don’t want to choose that certain niche because there’s already a lot of competition.”

Let’s face the facts. If people are interested in some themes there is almost always some competition. Finding a niche where there isn’t competition is very improbable. If you manage to find that kind of niche, congratulations.

Competition doesn’t mean that you wouldn’t make a success. Customers like different things.

There is a reason there are a million of every type of store in the world. There are a million grocery stores. There are a million hardware stores. There are a million men’s clothes stores.

Let’s think about men’s clothes stores. There are billions of men in this planet. All of them need clothes. Are all of them buying the clothes from the same place? No, never! There are millions of places where men are buying their clothes. Your niche could be selling men’s t-shirts and you could full-time with that niche alone.

Everyone doesn’t want to buy stuff from the same place. Compare between you and your friends. Do they go to the same grocery store? Do they use the same online store? Do they buy their clothes from the same store? Do they use the same travel agency when they travel?

People like different things. Even if there is competition. Some of the people probably would choose something different than the existing companies.

If you hear people complaining about their service, products or something else what they have bought, it tells you that there is an opportunity to make the things better in that niche. Would it be your opportunity?

#4 The Most Important Step. START.

The problem of most people is that they may have great ideas but they never take action. They are wondering, “Ohh, how wonderful it would be to achieve such and such things. ” but then they refuse to take action. DO NOT BELONG TO THAT GROUP!

Your first niche can be a success. Or it can be a learning experience towards success. Remember, failure is not the opposite of success.

The failure is the part of success.failure is the part of success

Failures teach you something new. Satisfaction with mediocrity is the opposite of success. Don’t be satisfied with mediocrity. Be willing to be better all the time.

The most successful people have tried many different niches before making their real breakthrough.

Choose one niche and stick with it.

Earning Money Online – 5 Typical Myths

Earning Money Online

When we talk about earning money online I’ve seen that many people have a lot of prejudices related to that theme.

I believed also some myths before when I wasn’t aware of the truth about making money online.

Today I’m going to tell the truth about 5 myths that I have heard about earning money online.

(I just want to mention that making money online can mean hundreds of different things: Freelancing, online marketing, teaching, making videos, investing, preaching, helping, counseling, selling and the list go on and on.)

1.Earning money online is only for cheaters. This myth is quite a common because unfortunately there are so many scams online.

It’s true that some of the “online gurus” are cheaters but that’s probably less than 1% of the online workers/entrepreneurs. In other words, most of the people who work online are not cheaters.

Working online can be totally as valuable as working offline (in the “real world”). And sometimes it can be many times more valuable than working offline. In Wealthy Affiliate, I have got to know many guys who make money online 100% legally and they provide important value for the people.

2.Earning money online is not “real work”. Some people may think that working online is equal to laying on the couch or in the beach. Yes, it can be like that because you are your own boss.

But if you want to success online you need to work. Earning online is like any other business. Success requires “real work”.

The goal for many people online is that they have enough passive income they can live with it. It’s totally okay and there’s nothing wrong with it. Some people have a better salary than others but if you want to have a good salary you need to provide good value for the people.Earning Money Online

Let’s make a little comparison. Person A is a teacher at the local university and teaches to about 200 people every day. Sometimes less. He is a mediocre teacher but he was hired to the university already 20 years ago.

Person B works online and teaches 10 000 people every single day through his online videos. He is one of the best in his field. People like his teachings and he helps people to get their life better.

Is Person A doing “real work” and Person B not? Let me laugh! 🙂

3.People try to earn money online only because they want to get rich. That’s actually partially true. I guess that money is probably a motivator for many online entrepreneurs.

The Internet provides unbelievable opportunities. There are about 3,3 billion internet users today (and the amount is growing). If you want to help a lot of people, what’s the best channel to do that? Internet.

The Internet is the big part of today’s world and working online provides limitless opportunities to make this world better and make big things.

I would say that money is not the main motivator for online entrepreneurs.

4.Earning money online is “Easy Money”. Making money online can be easy. But first, you need to study and hard work to get that “easy money”.

Earning money in general (online and offline) requires two things
1.Education
2.Provide value for other people

Education can be formal or informal. You can get your education from the university, the internet, from the books or from friends. Still, you need to learn the skills first and then you can —> Provide value.

 

Providing value means helping other people, helping your boss, teaching, counseling, building or million of other things.

The funniest part, of course, comes when you start earning money online even when you are sleeping, eating or spending time with your family. (Check the post from Colton, 20 years old online entrepreneur My First $10,000 Month!)

5.Few people have proper talent to earn money online. Are we living in the Stone Age? Today you have the best teachers ever teaching you how to earn money online. You don’t need any former skills.

Most of the Online Entrepreneurs started without any background of online work. They just started to learn and now they earn. Sometimes people just tend to forget that it requires hard work to earn online. But it pays off.

I know many people who have started but have quit their online business. They weren’t persistent enough. But this guy called Dom was persistent and went from $0 to $10k In 3 Years. Click the link to read his post.

Do You want to Learn to Earn Online?

If you are willing to learn online that’s totally possible without former background (like you saw in the posts of Colton and Dom in the links above).

I recommend your journey to earn money online from Wealthy Affiliate. It’s 100% legit and honest place which provides you training, tools, support, free websites and literally everything you need to earn money online.

There are actually more myths about making money online. Here I mentioned five of them. But here is the great text from Steve who turned his ‘hobby’ into a $6,000+ per month money making machine. Five Things They Don’t Teach You About Working from Home. He knows what he is talking about.

Have you heard some myths about making money online? Did you believe some of them before?

Where to Find Ideas for Writing? Think about Your Past!

How to get ideas for writing

Have you ever asked yourself, “How to get ideas for writing?” This is an ultimately common question people ask themselves if their task is to write something.

Today I want to give you ultimately powerful insights how to find content ideas from your past.

Think About Yourself 5 Years Ago

The things you are doing today are normal for you. The skills you have today feel like something very normal. If you have played piano for 5 years, playing piano feels like something very natural. There doesn’t seem to be anything special to know how to play for you.

But think about yourself when 5 years ago when you started practicing for the first time. It wasn’t so easy and natural. It took a lot of concentration to play the right chords and notes. In the past, you needed someone to teach you. But now you can be the teacher.

That’s exactly how many people feel. Playing piano is something special for them.

If your website’s niche is to teach people how to play the piano you may think, “teaching C-chord is extremely basics. Everything knows what is C-chord. They probably want something more advanced.”

Most of the people in the world don’t know how to play C-chord by piano. It’s advanced stuff for them!

different worlds

All of these people are living in the different worlds!

We Live in the Different World’s

Do you remember Mark Knopfler singing in “Brothers in arms”?

“There’s so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones.

You and I live in the different worlds. You, Abdullah or Yakamashi live in different worlds. You and your reader are living in the different worlds.

You understand the metaphor?

I have difference competence than you have. But you definitely know something that I don’t. You have always something to share.

There are about 7 400 000 000 people in this planet. If something has helped you it will help also someone else. Not probably everyone, but definitely someone!

It doesn’t matter are you 20, 40 or 80 years old. Let me repeat Every single person has something to share. You have learned something during your life. Share it to others. I am willing to hear! (Check my 6 Tips for Readable Text)

Don’t Hesitate to Share the “Basic-Stuff”

As I said if something is basic for you, it’s probably not basic for someone else. Let’s think about some examples.

1.If you are making money online I can definitely say that you know a lot more than most of the people. You have a lot of things to share.

2.If you have been a Christian you have a lot of wisdom to share who has just found Christ. Share to others what you have learned over the years.

3.If you don’t know anything about anything you can make questions and connect with people (Google loves websites with discussion).

Most of the people are looking for the “basic stuff”. Only a little percentage of people are really looking for something very advanced teachings like programming course level 9132849. Of course some search for programming course level 9132849 but that’s probably 0,00001% of world’s population.

Remember your “Basic stuff” may be highly important for many people.
