There are a million and one ways to make money part time. And in this economy who doesn’t need a little extra (or a lot of extra) cash in their pocket! That’s why I’ve decided to start a series of articles where I lay out the pro’s and con’s of different kinds of part time businesses that you can do with a limited up front investment and in your spare time.
Unlike e-mail that just shows up in someone mailbox, blogs must be accessed by the reader – there are, however, ways to list the blogs one wants to visit regularly.
It will always require some effort to actually make money. This is true for every successful Internet Marketer out there, and almost any other really rich person. They had to work to get to that point and become successful. They also had the right tools and knew how to use them. You can’t be successful in anything without the right tools, and that especially goes for internet marketing. Although there’s a lot of bogus internet marketing “systems” out there, a few of those systems actually work and give you the right tools you need to be successful. One of these systems is discussed in my blog, which I’ll include a link to in the resource box. Feel free to check it out after reading this article.
As you are evaluating how to get rich quick ideas, do not forget to consider look at links. There are many different ways to make money from them and people absolutely love them. All you really need to do is to go online and set up your website. Make sure you advertise and keep your site current. If people what to know what you have to say, they will visit often and tell their friends about the site.
Lots of advertisement options. Small niche blogs don’t have that many advertising options. They have Google AdSense/yahoo’s version and that’s about it. Many of these smaller niches don’t care about advertising only. Internet marketing niches don’t have that problem. There are tons of affiliate and direct advertising methods. An internet marketing firm will know about Google AdWords, a small pet store might not.
Also do not forget to link from your blog to some important pages of your own site containing valuable information. Blogging is quite anonymous and that’s certainly the case with the feeds involved. You don’t know who’s reading your post in a feed reader. When you have links in it pointing to your site that can boost your traffic!
I still hate blogging. But life is not full of doing only those things we like. Use your blog if you are serious about promoting your business. And use your blog if you want to promote yourself. Don’t expect a million hits a minute but don’t be surprised if your blog turns out to be a positive addition to your web presence. I certainly was and continue to be amazed at the results.
