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!

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.

What Does Keyword Mean?

What are keywordsMany people ask the questions like, “What are keywords?” “What do keywords mean?” And so on.

Today I’m going to explain you briefly what are those “strange keywords”. Probably after reading this text, you will be more familiar with keywords.

The Definition of a Keyword

The keyword can mean many things in the different contexts (programming and other) but let’s concentrate on the keyword’s meaning in search engines.

“The keyword is a word or a sentence used by the search engine in its search for relevant Web pages.”

Let me give you some examples. The headline of this text is “What Does Keyword Mean?” The headline itself is a keyword. I made a little bit research and saw that people are looking for that keyword (“What Does Keyword Mean”) from Google.

So, when you write something to Google you are writing “a keyword”. If someone wants to learn how to make money online and writes in Google “How to make money online”, that is his “keyword”. Simple?

More Examples of Keywords

As I mentioned, my headline “What Does Keyword Mean?” is a keyword. People are looking for that in Google. My other articles in my website are for example

People are looking these subjects in Google.

Benefits of passive income

For example, many people have searched for “Benefits of having a WordPress website.” I tell you 7 benefits in the article, so I added the seven in front of the keyword. It makes the headline also more captivating and appealing.

People are also wondering what is SEO and why they need it. They are thinking what is key to success and what are the benefits of passive income.

Keywords are the words and sentences that people search from Google and other search engines. People are interested in those things because they are looking for them.

Keyword Google

Every Article and Page Are Full of Keywords

The headline gets ranked in Google but also all the other stuff on the website. All the text in every post and page. All the images. Literally almost everything.

If you write for example a blog post of 700 words, (which is quite a normal for a blog post) it contains already a big bunch of keywords. Also, every image you add on your website can be ranked in search engines. There are techniques how you can get your images ranked better in Google but today we concentrate on the text.

Even though your every single article and page contains already a lot of keywords it’s still important to make “keyword research” to get your page ranked better. It will lead to more traffic on your website and people will find your website more easily.

How to Find Great Keywords?Jaaxy The Best

Even if you don’t have any former skills on keywords, don’t worry! If you have experience from keywords, great!

Finding great and relevant keywords can take too much time if you don’t have proper tools for doing that. It may take time from other more important things.

That’s why there are great tools which make your keyword research way easier and faster.

What is SEO and Why Do I Need It?

SEOYou may wonder what is this strange term that people use on the Internet, SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

SEO is the process of readying a website to be listed well in search engines (according to Wapedia). Let’s put it in a more simple form.

You set up your website to get ranked in search engines. This is SEO, in a nutshell.

In order to get ranked in search, you need to do certain things. Provide valuable content, engage with people, use keywords, social media presence and so on.

Why is SEO Important?

You want to be ranked in Google, Yahoo and other search engines to get traffic.

Think about the benefits when you get ranked in search engines. Let me give you 4 reasons.

1.It’s free marketing (You don’t need to pay for SEO)
2.Your visitors are targeted (People search for something specific and end up to your website.)
3.Your brand/company’s value rises
4.People find you easily

There are of course more reasons but these four are quite crucial.

Think about expensive marketing campaigns. You pay for Facebook or make Pay Per Click campaigns to get your ads somewhere. They may cost a lot. But SEO doesn’t cost money. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t be using paid marketing methods but don’t solely lean on paid methods.

If you want to get fit, you may search “How to get fit” from Google. Then you head to the fitness site which sells ideas and products how you can get fit. You are already interested in the website’s theme because you searched it from Google.

In other words, using SEO effectively gives the website targeted visitors who are already interested in the subject.

Inrease Traffic in Your Website by SEO.

Increase Traffic in Your Website by SEO.

 

Your Competitors Are Using SEO

Let’s think about an example. Company A and company B are working in the same industry. They both want to get more customers online. Company A uses SEO but company B doesn’t.

Company A gets ranked in search engines and a lot of people come to his website. Then they end up buying his products and the company success. Company B thinks, “We don’t want to think about SEO. We concentrate on the other things.” They don’t get ranked in Google and only very few people come to their website. Not many products are sold.

Even though the example is very simplified you get the glimpse how important SEO can be. The successful companies online are using SEO.
