Plan Your Success in 2011

With the Festive season out of the way, I’m back on deck, focusing my energy on the new year ahead and my project pipeline.

I spent some time last year (sounds like a long time ago), developing a project pipeline to monitor my important projects and help me stay focused.  My challenge this year is to lose the queen of procrastination crown and kick some goals.  I’m feeling excited about that!

Trying to make money online can be a daunting prospect when there is so much “noise” out there with so many market criers guru’s competing for your attention whilst promising you instant riches – really, if the product was so good, would you have to promote it so much?  Talk about flogging a dead horse!

Not all marketers are bad, there are some ethical ones about.  One such young man that I have been following has published a new report about his experience with internet marketing – and I have to say, this is quite a gem.  It is well worth a read. You can download it here, or you can visit his place. Don’t forget to come back and leave a comment if you like his report. I plan on introducing you to all my online friends this year – so you can see how ordinary folk are making money online – by doing it their way.  Have an awesome day!

Every day thousands of people search the internet for opportunities to make money online from their own homes.  There are numerous work-from-home business opportunities and an internet or online business is just one of them.  It is often less expensive to start up and maintain an online business compared to an offline one.  With the present economic condition, many people are looking for ways to earn extra cash.  With this in mind, here are the top 10 internet business ideas today.

1. Blogging is a low cost way of making money from home.  You can post your blogs about anything that interests you.  As long as you have the ability to write about topics you like, you can attract certain readers and offer them products or services.  You can also offer advertising space on your blog website to different marketers, or you can make money from Adwords and AdSense.

5.  Set up a membership site for a group of people with the same interests.  Customers pay to join, and you create the website and supply the materials such as newsletters, videos, articles and other services.

Affiliate Marketing|Content is King

Every website owner or blog owner needs content, and lots of it.

Not a writer? No problem. One of the best ways to speed up this process is private label rights (PLR) articles.

You simply purchase these PLR articles, and then edit them and publish them on your website or blog. There’s no linking back to anyone. Just publish them and monetize them with ads and you’re set.

The Numbers Game

The Numbers Game

Here’s one of the single most powerful tool you can use to organize your business.

Its a numbers game.

The Pareto Rule

I love the Pareto rule. Vilfredo Pareto was a nineteenth-century Italian economist who observed that 80 per cent of Italy’s wealth was owned by 20 per cent of the population.

For example, in your business, a vital few activities result in 80 percent of your income.

Twenty per cent of all your actions will account for 80 per cent of your results
Twenty per cent of your customers will account for 80 per cent of your sales
Twenty per cent of your products and services will account for 80 per cent of the value of what you do.

Another way of putting it is that if you have a list of ten tasks, two of those tasks will be far more valuable than the other eight tasks put together.  Each of the tasks may take the same time to accomplish, but one or two of the the tasks may contribute five
or ten times the value.  Sometimes just one task can be worth more than the other nine together.

The Pareto rule relates to efficiency. It means focusing on stuff that matters rather than spreading yourself thin. Unfortunately for most people trying to make money online, they are stuck on the wrong side of the Pareto Principle. They keep focusing on the 80 percent of their time that delivers hardly any return.  Sounds familiar?

It’s easy to constantly get distracted from your main line of work, especially if you are working from home. So how can you fix this? I recently read this interesting book about time management and it helped me put my online business back on track. Need help to manage your time? Read the latest tips here!

How To Make Money From Passions


To make money online many people jump right in before they are properly prepared. You know that to be a rocket scientist, a doctor, a brick layer, a construction worker, an office worker, a teacher there are prerequisites, things you must learn, before you can be successful, you don’t just jump right in
unprepared.

The same applies to the Internet marketing industry even though there are unsavory people out there who’d have you believe it’s a “Walk in the Park” and requires no more than the belief that you can just do it.

And I’ll have to admit, it is a walk in the park compared to what you have to put up with in the working
world punching a clock being a subordinate to someone who does not have your interests in mind, but there are still rules you have to follow and pitfalls you must avoid to actually make Internet marketing work for you. Read the rest of this entry
