Over spend on the internet! :-)

Some people never realize they have already over spend money on the internet. Like buy the webtools, ebook, web scripts, membership or ecourses. I know, because I’m one of the ‘some people’ before. Last time when I was new to internet marketing, I bought a lot of different type of tools, web scripts and membership. I never realize that I have already over spend the money to those products.

It’s too easy to take out the credit card with just fill in the blank and you can download the product instantly. Until end of the month when the credit card statement mail to your house, then you will suddenly “SHOCK”!

Oh my god! Just look at the credit card statement, and all the make money online hope is gone or lose confident. Because still losing money month after month, or maybe make less than $100 per month. If you spend more than you earn, then you consider losing money.

If you have already spend more than 3-4 month with the internet marketing and still make less than $100 per month or your internet business expenses more than your earning, I suggest you stop buying any product or tools. Just stop to spend money for a while, I suggest you spend 1 day to look back from start until now, what you have done and why you still losing money.

You need to find out the problem, or you will just keep losing money without solve the problem. Take 2-3 pieces of paper to write down what you have done from start, what you have bought and how much you earn every month.

After that, you will see the total you have spend and the total you have earned.

OK, It’s time to find the solution how to earn back the money you have spend last time. Internet business is same like offline business, you also need to record the expenses and earning. So you can see the exact $ number every month. At least you can reduce the lost.

The main solution is maintain your online business is cut expenses! If you cannot earn more than 50% of your monthly expenses. 80-90% of work do by yourself, never outsource the work to other people, because you’re losing money now. So you need to cut the expenses, until you make money.

Find out what’s the problem. why you’re losing money. Maybe you don’t know how to drive traffic, setup salespage, post article/video or how to find people to join your online mlm. These are the common case that most people will facing, some people know how to setup salespage, but don’t know how to drive traffic to the site. Or some people good in drive traffic but dont’ know how to setup the salespage properly.

Take my 2cents tips: Give your PC rest one day, and you take 2-3 pieces of paper to write down from you start until now, what you have done. Then create a plan how to do better than last time. If you’re not good in drive traffic, then go to buy the ebook or ecourses that teach you how to drive traffic. So you should not spend the money in any non-related product.

Here are some product you can have a look if you need it to help you solve the problem.

Expensive VS Cheap

Expensive Versus Cheap! What is expensive and what is cheap?
Money
What is expensive?
$197? $997? or $1499? Before you look for the price, please read the salesletter and get more detail about the product. The number of the price is not expensive, but the product value! If the product can help you earn hundreds or thousands of dollar, and it sell $97 for a one time payment. Then it’s worth enough.

Some product are help you to save your time, save monthly expenses, no need to hire people or increase the conversion rate. Let talk about the ‘save time’ product, I just bought the Instant Article Wizard a few week ago that created by Jon Leger. IAW is help you to save your time in do research for yout article content. It’s sell $67 for a one time payment, some people will feel $67 too expensive. But I say it’s depend who need this software to save their time and make more money.

Some people hire others to write article for them, about $5-$20 per article, depend what topic and how long the article they want. If you need 5 articles, then you have to spend at least $30-$50. Most people tired of spend time to do research what to write and not expert in that topic. What IAW can do for you? IAW will help you do all the research for you with just insert your topic keyword, and it will search the content for you. It’s just take you a few minutes for the research.

Instant Article Wizard

If you’re doing affiliate marketing, then you will need this tool to help you save time and make more money. The more article you create and post to internet, the more people will know you and more people will read your article. For a little investment for just $67 is not expensive to affiliate marketer at all. WHY? The affiliate only need to make one or two sales already cover back the investment and he/she still continue make profit from this software month after month.

If the product value is worth more than the price it sell, then it’s not expensive, it’s cheap! Only those people who are just buy and not take action is expensive. You have invest the money into the product and never take action, it’s just like throw the money to the sea and wish one day will get rich. Some people is like that, they thought the product he/she bought it and the product will make them profit without spend the time and effort to take action.

If the product require you to take about a few month to get back your investment, then it’s a bit expensive. Example: XYZ product sell $997, and the product will help you earn $10-$20 per sales or action, then you should know this product is for long term not short term. You will not make any fast money from a short period. Then you should think and plan yourself what you will going to do with the product if you decide to buy it. If you don’t have any plan to take action, then you better don’t buy the product. You will just losing money ONLY.

Before you buy any product, membership or services. Please take my 2cents tips below:

Ask yourself a few questions before you decide to buy the product:
1. Am I REALLY need this product?
2. Is this for short period or long period to get back the investment?
3. What is my action plan for this product?
4. Am I have time to spend with this product?
5. Am I need to spend extra money to buy other product to combine with this product?

These are most important questions before you buy the product. Some of you will not understand number 5 question.
Here’s example: You are interested in the membership script, WOW, I can make recurring income month after month from my member. The membership script will auto charge the member monthly fee and automated the process like sign up, collect money, member area protected and many more. Here’s is the problem, do you have extra money to maintain your membership site or get started? Like buy webhosting, buy product for member to download, hire people write salesletter, design graphics and many others.

Some people will face this problem after they bought the membership script, Oh my God, don’t have enough money to buy a bunch of product for my member and maintain every month, since you’re just get started, not yet have any recurring income from member. Or don’t know how to write salesletter and no money to hire people to do this or do that.

If you don’t have any services or product to provide your member, then how the membership site works? The membership site will not work if you can’t provide any services, free download, or free content. This is one of the product need to combine with others before it can works and make you money.

Remember, everytime buy product, don’t see the price, read the salesletter and get more information about the product 1st. If the product can bring you 100%-200% profit, then even $197 or $297 still is cheap enough. Because you know you will earn more than the price you pay.

If you don’t have extra time to spend with the product, then please do not buy the product or you will just waste your money. Especially new product that require you to study how to make it works or make profit from it. Like membership site again, if you don’t have enough time to maintain the site, then your member will cancel their account once they realize your thing out of date or update very slow.

You can post your comment here if you have any questions or better idea.

Thank you.

Get Started To Make Money Online

If you are just started your internet journey without attend any courses or learn from ebook before, then take my tips here. It might reduce your lost and time.

When you just started, what not to do:
1. Do not hire any people to do work for you.
2. Do not buy any web traffic or lead.
3. Do not buy expensive product.
4. Do not join any expensive membership.
5. Do not do more than 2 type of online opportunity.
a. Google Adsense
b. Affiliate Marketing
c. Online MLM
d. Online Selling
e. Blogger
Just choose maximum 2 type to concentrate.

When you decide to step on whether google adsense or affiliate marketing, then you should only concentrate to them. If you do more than 2 types in the same time, you will make yourself confuse, not enough time and lack of performance.

Unless you’re rich enough, then you can skip all the tips here. You can go to hire people to do all the work for you.  🙂

Try to read more other marketer salespage, squeeze page and email. See how they do the marketing. Subscribe to their list, so you can see how they do email marketing. In this way, you will learn more and compare their marketing work with other marketer.

If you wish to start selling online, then you have to put some effort, time and money to learn how it work. Especially how to setup salespage and thankyou page (download page).

Most newbie stuck in this part. They don’t know how to setup salespage, how to create paypal button, how to link the thankyou page. There are a lot of things to learn, and it’s require to take time on that. Just take it easy and learn step by step.

Compare to Selling Online, Affiliate Marketing is  more easier to make money with low cost and more quickly to see result. Why? Affiliate don’t need to setup any salespage, linking work and thankyou page. Affiliate also don’t need to provide support.

Just send customer to the salespage to buy the product and you make money. But doing affiliate marketing also need to learn how to promote product and where to find customer.

Most affiliate will use PPC (Pay per click) Google Adword. Bid the keyword and drive the targeted customer to the salespage. As long as you know how to target keyword. Or you will just lose the money. Little tips of how to target keyword.

Example. You are selling ‘training dog’ ebook, then you should target ‘training dog’, ‘how to train my dog’ , Do not target ‘dog’, ‘dog name’ , You will ask why not to choose ‘dog’ keyword? There are more than 20millions search results in google search engine for ‘dog’ keyword. Maybe those people want to find dog shampoo, dog food or anything else. They will not buy your ‘training dog’ ebook and you will just waste you PPC money with those people. Because they are not looking for ‘training dog’ ebook.

More tips how to get started make money online will post soon.

Use Google Adword To Make Money

You might heard these “No website require”, “No Send Email Require” and a lot of things no require to make money online.

Yes, I agree using adword can make you money online. But without website and autoresponder, you’re just leave “Big” money on the table. People who buy the product is buyer.

Buyer will buy other product in the future, over and over again. Then why don’t collect those buyer information for your next product use? When you have new product to promote, you can promote to those existing buyer as well, because they are “quality” leads which are people who always buy product online.

This way will make more money from previous work. The more “quality” leads(buyer) you have, the more extra money you get from less effort. If you have collect every buyer from adword campaign. Then the every click from your campaign is worth enough. Maybe you pay $0.50 for a click but you make $20 commission and future commission as well.

For a $0.50 = Unlimited Income

100 Buyer list better than 500 free subscribe list. ( normal conversion rate from my own )

 No website or autoresponder will require to find new customer over again.

One website only cost you $10 a month and the autoresponder only cost $20 a month.

Made just 1 sale already cover your monthly expenses. Then why not start build your own customer base and make more money with your previous work?

Most Recommended Webhosting
HostGator WebHosting

Most Recommended Autoresponder
Aweber Autoresponder

 The more buyer in your list, the more money you can make!

Why So Many People Want To Make Money Online?

Before that I was a car mechanic and I thought internet can make me money quickly and easy. So I start searching “make money online” or “how to make money online” in Google search engine.  I remember the 1st few opportunity I found are “Get paid to read email/Ads, “Get paid to surf”, “HYIP”and some ebook/ecourses. In that time, I don’t have credit card and not really willing to pay money to buy those $47 or $67 ebook/ecourses.

So I decided to join those “free” stuff get paid to read email/Ads and surf internet. At the same time, I also invest some money in HYIP ( High Yield Investment Program ). Guees What? Get burned with HYIP and surf internet. They never pay money to me after I have surf about 150 hours ( take me about 30days ) . The Admin  never respond !!!

The HYIP, they simply closed the website.  After that, I’m start looking for other opportunity, and I found some website that selling their income system or ebook “how to make money online”.  Because of I don’t have credit card so it’s hard to take out my hard earn money to cash into debit card to buy. 🙂

Just wait…….until I get the credit card. At that moment, I found another opportunity from Advertisement directory. “Typist” and “Ads Typist”, guess what? Scam opportunity, those people just selling the out-of-dated information to teach people how to get paid to survey. Most information like company contact, website are out-of-dated that cannot be reach.  Or you have another option is selling the same opportunity to others just like them. That’s mean find other people become victim. 🙁

In that time, I feel sad because make money online is hard and get scam all the time. Until I reach some website that teach you how to make money online and show you their “Big Check” $thousands in 7 days or 30 days!!!!

I’m very excited when I saw their check and my confident come back. After I get my credit card and the 1st thing I do is buy the ebook and start read it quickly. What I have learned from the ebook are how to setup adword account and campaign. Then promote the author products. That’s it!! Such ebook cost me $47 just teach me setup adword account and setup campaign. FINISH.

Most crazy thing is the author ask reader to follow his method to setup the adword campaign. Set the daily budget to $50 and bid all the single keyword he gave in ebook, those single keywords are expensive that some cost up to $2.  And he said that “Guaranteed” get sale, So I just do it and trust what he say. After 2 day, I quickly close my campaign, nearly died. Make only 1 sale ( commission $22 ) and need to pay $50 daily budget for campaign.

Then I start search other ebook that really can help me make money online with low start up cost. I have bought a lot of ebook in that time, and cost me a few hundred dollar. Almost crazy, owe my credit card too much. Then I stop buying any ebook and start thinking what I have done. I have bought how to start business online ebook, how to build list, how to blah blah…… All those “how to” ebook but I still losing money.

Until today, I finally make a little fortune online. What I can say is make money online for long-term is not so easy. You must attend some course or buy some ebook to improve yourself time to time. There are a lot of thing to say about make money online and the main way to start IM business are :

1. Create Own Website www.yourname.com
2. Create Autoresponder

This is the main thing should have to build a long-term business online.

More about simple way to start IM business will post soon.

HYIP Can Help You Get Rich??

I personally involed HYIP when I was newbie on the internet. Get burned a few hundreds dollar and afterward someone told me that some HYIP program are managed by his friends. Then I start realized that these such program anyone can do and cheat other people money.

My advise is don’t try HYIP, it won’t make you rich and money. If you are malaysian, you might see newspaper talking about HYIP. Those Scammer will pay you from start to attract more people to join the program and no more than 6 months or 1 year, the website will gone. Last time I join 2 HYIP program, both program website closed within 2 month. I believed a lot of internet user have touch HYIP before and also get burned at the end of the time.

 My advise: Never ever think HYIP can make you rich… 

How Many Method To Make Money?

There are many different ways to make money. Most People only use 3-4 methods to promote the product or selling product. I have read an ebook written by William Charlwood, He is sharing 23 direct methods of selling $7 product.

 Inside this ebook is NOT teach you how to cash in thousands of money with all the methods. I always say to my friends and my subscribers, every ebook/ courses you bought will not make you rich. It’s just increase your value and get what you don’t know.

I believe you already know 3-4 methods inside the ebook and currently using to make money. But how about the rest of 19 or 20 methods? Would you just leave it on the table?

Ask yourself, Would you mind to earn extra money? Ah-Ha….

Why Learn? When after you have Learn, then you can take off the “L” from “Learn” and It become “Earn” ! If you never learn how to send email or buy online, then how you make money online? Everything come from Learn first then Earn.

Learn From Mistakes !

I have made new mistakes with my “Graphics Collection“. People who have bougth it will know I make the mistakes with the collection. There is copyright mistakes. But luckily I just solve the problem and very happy to learn from mistakes.

I have made lot of mistakes when I was just start my Internet Marketing. I spend thousands of dollar to buy ebook, software, scripts, membership and many others. I also remember the 1st big mistake I made is SPAM complaint.

When I was newbie, I don’t know what is Autoresponder and don’t know what is SPAM. Some of you might think I’m really newbie ( even SPAM also don’t know ).

Yes, When I have about 300 subscribers in my email account ( hotmail ). I always send email to them one by one. Almost crazy everytime send email like that, finally I get a lot of SPAM complaint one day. Then I do some research and found autoresponder. 🙂

Another mistake is Buy too many product that thought will help me get rich overnight.  Until I found a book Magnetic Sponsoring then I stop buy the product that teach me “how to” ……… make $xxxxx in xxxdays. WHY ?

As I have previous post below about the Magnetic Sponsoring. Education never stop ! The book or CD or Course you buy/attend not make you become rich. You just get what you don’t have from it. Get what I mean??

Example: You bought a cook book, it have 10 receipes chapter inside the book. After you finish the book and find out that some 2-4 receipes you already know before. BUT not all, So you just learn what you don’t know from the book.

This month I learn new things from my mistake not book or any product.  Luckily and happily because I solved the problem already. I never thought my Graphics Collection will in 7dollaroffers.com Best Seller in fourth position. Really suprised ! I thought 50-80 sales a day is very common so I never think my product will get in the Best Seller position. But not compare to expert internet marketer, they probably make more than thousands  every single days.
