Graphics for Your Blog Posts

So, why the tacky graphics on every post? This blog really only requires a random screenshot here and there. I’m putting out a lot of content here, and to create a custom image for each one would be super time-consuming. I could outsource it, but that would be super expensive when I can just make these tacky pictures myself. I could go out and grab some stats on why you…

The Obligatory Discouragement of Internet Marketing

I don’t think there’s a marketer out there who hasn’t had regular intervals of disappointment. The caveat to Internet Marketing is that it takes a good amount of trial and error to be successful. There are few who make it. Most of us have frequented marketing forums and seen the discussions about marketers who make a TON of money. You may have even bought a product off one of these…

Affiliate Marketing is a Ton of Work

 The course I bought on affiliate marketing outlined everything step by step. When I initially went through the course, it sounded like work, but it sounded easier than it has been. Some things have taken more time than I thought they would. The method revolves around choosing a niche and writing a free report that is 5-7 chapters long. I did this in a couple evenings. The majority of the…

I’m Doing This For More Than Me

I won’t lie, my head has been swimming for weeks since I started focusing again on making a go at Internet Marketing. First it started when I was studying up on Arbitrage using Fiverr. Then I realized that Craigslist was bunk for leads. I had a feeling the idea was saturated. I didn’t give up. I’m no quitter. I know there are people making money with IM. If they can…

Affiliate Marketing and the Beginner

I bought a short affiliate marketing course. It was an older course, and it cost me a little less than 10 bucks. I spent a few hours going through the training and taking notes. I wish more people would release PDF’s with their training courses! Sometimes videos aren’t the most convenient mode of instruction. The selling point on this particular course was a testimonial from someone I know online who…

Starting and Marketing a Simple Offline Business

This is another one of those things that I’ve come across in life and thought was a great idea, but just never implemented it. So, how do I know it will work? Well, I worked at a place that basically had this going on. Offline business is sometimes a really simple thing, and the right person can make really good use of information like this. Times are tough, and jobs…

Hello! What’s Going On?

Sorry, for the extended absence. Good thing this blog is basically for documentation rather than profit. I am just recently back from vacation. No, it wasn’t one of those cool Internet Marketing vacations all the gurus boast about. It was simply my yearly vacation that I worked my butt of for in my 3rd Shift job which I loathe. So, I haven’t hit the big time yet, but you’ll be…

Make Money with Print Newsletters

My previous post gave me this idea…well, this variation of someone else’s idea. Marketing is a constant evolution. It’s taking old methods, old ideas, and mixing and matching with new sites, ideas, and methods. When I used to frequent coffee shops, I noticed that many of them had one or two stacks of print newsletters left behind by some ambitious individual. These would be ONE page. Sometimes they would be…

Make Money with Fiverr Arbitrage

I frequent a number of webmaster forums…well, really only two, but that’s beside the point. I learned about this method of money-making in my forum travels. The initial problem with methods you find for free on the forums is that they have more than likely been saturated and are no longer viable. *sidenote* I’m writing this post using the Blogger app for Android from my job, so this may initially…

Trying to Make Money in the Service Realm

 Like most people who try to make money online, I started in the service realm. I began with what I knew and tried to scale up from there. In 2006, when I first learned about Internet Marketing, the only thing I knew how to do online was blog…and I don’t mean the sort of blogging someone would actually want to read. It was a self-loathing, becoming type of blogging. Even so…it…
