The Wealthy Affiliate Scam

Posted by test testadmin on August 13, 2016

Introduction:

John T. Jones, Ph.D. My Over Nine Years at WA.

John T. Jones, Ph.D. My Over Nine Years at WA.

I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate University for over eight (8) years. The Wealthy Affiliate scam does not exist.

How Much Money Can I Make by Affiliate Marketing?

Members of Wealthy Affiliate are asked often if they are making any money, and if so, how much. Members seldom answer this question. The reason is that our personal finances are nobody’s business but our own. The question is rude.

Having said that, a premium membership in Wealthy Affiliate cost $47 a month. That is one heck of a lot of money if there’s not going to be in a return on investment. You can reduce this cost by paying annually to about half, but that’s still is about $300 a year.

There is also the possibility, if you use the Wealthy Affiliate affiliate program, that you will earn enough to pay for your annual tuition. That is how I have been paying for my tuition for the last nine (9) years. If you join the Wealthy Affiliate keyword software program, JAAXY, you can also earn money there as an affiliate. This program can also pay your tuition.

How Much Money Do I Make Every Month As an Affiliate Marketer?

With the exception of the two programs mentioned above, very little. My family has always preferred to market products rather than sponsor affiliate products. We make significant income by doing that.

I am not selling product now. I sold books and flagpoles for many years but in my old age, I don’t do much of that, just a little on Etsy to unload things that are cluttering up the house. I’m too old for the work of shipping products all over the place.

Because of my training at Wealthy Affiliate, I have been more efficient in starting my son and my granddaughters into very strong Internet businesses. That process continues as more of my 34 living grandchildren enter into business.

Is Affiliate Marketing Worth Learning?

It has certainly helped me in product marketing. In affiliate marketing you never have to mess with the product you just have to introduce it. You don’t have to do any kind of customer service or shipping or handling customer returns and such, all of which you must do in product marketing. Often the commissions are lower in affiliate marketing than in product marketing.

Most affiliate marketers are not successful.

That is a simple truth of the matter. But those who are properly trained, such as those members of Wealthy Affiliate, have a much better chance of earning money then those who do not have proper training.

Many of my friends at Wealthy Affiliate have been able to quit their day jobs and to earn very good living through affiliate marketing. My dear friend from Sweden, Veronica, has two small children that she likes to take to Sweden to see their grandparents and cousins. Her commissions from affiliate marketing allow her to do this and she does not have to leave the home to earn her daily bread.

Kyle and Carson, the owners of Wealthy Affiliate, work their way through college by affiliate marketing. So did my friend Ryan who earned over $500,000 while in college and has decided to stay in affiliate marketing, where with other Internet enterprises, he makes a very high income.

I could name more high income earners but that would be of no advantage to you.

If you are going to go into affiliate marketing, here are some suggestions:

1. Learn the ropes! Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to do just that because it is late premier training site for affiliate marketers on the Internet.

2. From the very start, establish a mailing list of followers. It is absolutely essential that you do this. It is hard to say anyone anything through one visit to your website. But if you can get their name on your mailing list, you can continue to contact them and make suggestions and give them help.

3. Your purpose is not to sell products. Your purpose is to help people solve their problems. To do this, you must have a very informative website which focuses on a market called a niche market, a small market of buyers in a larger market. Such a market might be toys for dogs or clubs for left-handed lady golfers.

Here are some things to think about as you go through the steps of becoming an affiliate marketer:

1. Finding a Niche Market

The main markets for a new niche marketer are:

A. Relationships such as finding a mate, resolving a divorce problem and dating.

B. Making Money which is a very competitive market and not the best for beginners.

C. Expensive Hobbies has many niche markets that can be profitable and this market must not be forgotten.

D. Health and Beauty

Note that these markets are very competitive. A market that is not competitive is usually not worth working. You will be in business and you will have to compete with other businesses.

Some Mistakes Made by New Affiliate Marketers

Here are some things that can stop you from succeeding as an affiliate marketer:

1. Not being business minded, not even realizing that you are in business, not having a business plan and not becoming a part of the business community. Go to SBA.gov for free business training and to set up your business plan.

2. Not gaining the education that you need to be an affiliate marketer, Universities cannot teach you affiliate marketing, they have all failed at this. You need to be taught by folks who are actually affiliate marketers. The field is full of scam artist called gurus. You must stay away from the gurus who promised you overnight profits if you will just join their program, a funnel they draw you into by offering you a free product, then a product the cost $67, then a product that cost you $269 and finally tutoring that can cost you thousands of dollars. Don’t let the gurus empty your pockets before you can even get started. What they sell is free on the Internet.

3. Not carefully choosing a niche market through thorough keyword research. Remember that you will be seeking visitors to your website who are using a web browser to find an answer to a particular question. Your website must answer that question in a professional way and suggest possible solutions to the problem.

4. Not having enough patients to get into business. Any new business takes time to start up. Affiliate marketing is no different. It usually takes from six months to a year to start making a profit. The reason is that you must build up an audience that likes what you are saying on your website and wants to learn more. As I mentioned earlier, you need a mailing list. Because the cost of a mailing list manager is high, too many ignore this step. If you build a good list, the cost of maintaining that list will be small.

5. Not being able to compete. You need to keep up to date and to stay ahead of your competitors. You need a competitive edge which you must maintain.

6. Having a supplier dropping an affiliate program. Supplier may decide that there are less costly methods of marketing then having a group of affiliate marketers and may abandon its affiliates. To prevent this, you need to join a number of affiliate programs so that if one fails to fulfill your needs, you can fall back on another program.

7. A change in protocols by by a search engine such as Google, can put you out of business. Google never has liked affiliate marketers. For one reason is that Google is in competition with affiliate marketers. But that is not the main reason which is that affiliate marketers tend to have websites that are not relevant to what the searchers are looking for. The content is too often trivial and worthless. The job of a search engine is to guide a person looking for a solution to a problem on the Internet, to get an answer to that problem. Don’t blame Google if you get bounced. Grab yourself by the boot laces and pull yourself back up, providing good content.

8. Having a website that is not easy to navigate, that loads too slowly, that is too klutzy, does not use video or images.

Sources To Get You Going in Affiliate Marketing

Wealthy Affiliate

I said that I have been a Wealthy Affiliate for over eight years. I stay there because I like the community and I like to contribute to it. I also like to stay up to date in the business. If I have a question, I want to be able to get an answer in a short time, usually from another member on their chat function. But I can place a question in a box at the top of the site at any time and get a number of good answers.

Like the university, Wealthy Affiliate has formal courses in marketing on the Internet. Some of these courses are geared to absolutely knew affiliate marketers and they are free. Nothing is cheaper than free.

For more extensive training and interaction with the community, you must become a premium member. The differences in the two membership levels are shown below:

JAAXY

There is a free keyword tool on the Wealthy Affiliate site. JAAXY is a special tool designed for Internet marketers. There is a monthly fee that I always make more than that fee through their affiliate program.


GetResponse

Discuss the importance of having a mailing list, that if you don’t have a mailing list, you’re not really in business. Get response is a very reliable mailing list manager and you will be able to publish mailings and your newsletter according to your desires.

AWeber

Another efficient and desirable mailing list manager. There are free mailing list managers listed on the Internet. Just make sure you know what you are getting. To start you can use your email provider to group email addresses under a particular category and you can send out the emails from your own server as long as you don’t overdo it. You can always transfer your list later. You can also purchase software that will handle your email directly from your computer. I’ve tried that some success but that was a long time ago.

Conclusion:

Internet marketing is a business function and affiliate marketing is a business unto itself. It is not an easy road to profitability, certainly not a gift-rich-quick scheme, but it can provide a part-time income from home, or from wherever you are with your laptop, or a full-time income.

Wealthy Affiliate is a training center, not the Wealthy Affiliate scam. Some who take advantage of the training by performing the task as directed, will gain significant income. We all have different talents and abilities so some will be more successful than others. But you don’t have to be a genius to find a niche market, to choose a domain name, to build a website and to provide relevant significant useful information to that site.

Some folks go to Wealthy Affiliate for about 5 to 6 months. That is all it is necessary to gain the training. That is much cheaper than a college course that will not give you the training that you need. I suggest you join for a year to enjoy the lower costs had to make a full commitment to learning the business. After that, you can decide if you want to be like this old man who can’t seem to leave Wealthy Affiliate.

The Best Work from Home Jobs

Posted by test testadmin on July 12, 2016

Introduction:

There are advantages to working from home. To some, working at home is essential. This is especially true of invalids and those who are caring for children or other loved ones. If you work home you have here concerns, or at least different concerns, then those in the workplace. For example, you don’t have to get dressed up for work and so you don’t have to spend a lot of money on good clothing which would be required in outside employment. You also will have lower transportation cost because she will not need to leave home often and you will not be pouring gas in the gas time or putting tires on the rims of your car. You don’t need a new car to impress anyone. You can take care of pets and loved ones as needed without the cost of outside help. You can set your own hours and even determine your own income.

There are many opportunities to work at home using your own talents and skills. Also, many companies now will offer you employment where you can work from your home. You can combine opportunities and have a number of income sources while you’re working from home. You can use your time more effectively and you will not be spending time on the road for the most part. One exception would be if you are a consultant and need to travel to complete your work. I did some engineering consulting after I retired some of which was done for the State Department which I did for no cost except for transportation to South America and such. Often our work experiences allow us to do consulting after retirement.

You can find many work opportunities by making a search on the Internet. Just place work from home opportunities in your browser search window. However I would like to give used to helps that will give you a much larger perspective on working from home.

Conclusion:

When you’re looking for a opportunities to work at home. Beware of con artist or gurus who want to be your mentor. The Internet is full of scammers. They will grab you by the hills and shake every last coin out of your pockets.

Start Business No Money

Posted by test testadmin on April 26, 2016
Get plugged into SBA Training Now!

Get plugged into SBA Training Now!

Welcome!

You got right to the point with that search term: Start Business No Money. It indicates that you have a very strong desire to start your own business but that you have little collateral to do it. Don’t feel alone. Many are in the same situation,

No matter what kind of a business that you want to get into, I suggest that you go to SBA.gov and develop your free business plan. That will help you define your goals and make plans for the future. It’s hard to follow a trail if you don’t know where it is going.

The Internet

At first, let’s not think about the Internet. Let’s assume that we are going to use the Internet to bring folks to our business but that it is not our business.

Here are some transitions that I’ve witnessed:

Doll Parts

A couple had a business in their home. They sold doll parts. People contacted them directly by walking into their storeroom, by mail, and by email. When daddy decided to put a site on the Internet showing their merchandise. They set up the site and emailed their customers or notified them by mail that they had a web presence. Their sales quadrupled overnight.

Here you can see that they already had a business and that they were already making business decisions.

Irish Flutes

My son did this very thing. He is a veterinarian but he was selling flutes on the side. He told me that he wanted a website which we set up. He had a large email list of his customers worldwide. When we had the site going, he email them and from that point on, he did most all of his business on the Internet. But his business was selling flutes, not the Internet.

Niche Markets

Both of these examples show that they were working in niche markets. A niche market is a small part of a larger market. A niche market can be broken down into a sub niche. I think I just invented that term. But the market in Irish flutes is part of the flute market which is part of the musical instrument market.

Books

I had a connection years ago, still do, with my friend Ty Hicks in New York State. Ty has put many people in the business. He has authored many books and reports. I went to visit Bizland.com and set up a bookstore. Bizland furnished the e-commerce (credit card) function and the traffic. I too was in business on the Internet almost instantly. But my business was selling books.

I also had a large quantity of books’s stored at my home in Arizona. I bought them at yard sales and estate sales, often paying $.10 for a book. I sold them on Alibris.com and Amazon.com. (I wrote a booklet of this some years ago which is sort of obsolete, but it will tell you how to get into the business.Send me two dollars for shipping and handling if you want to copy. TJ Books, 213 3rd Ave. N., Buhl,ID 83316)

A fast way to start in a business is to go to yard sales and estate sales. You can sell antiques and handmade items directly on ETSY and other sites.

Baby Hats

Two of my granddaughters are in business together. They make baby hats. They have about 10 employees and they sell them exclusively on the Internet. They make good full-time incomes to support their families while their husbands are in college.

Pads

Another granddaughter and her partner import special leather from China. They have it fabricated into mats that are moisture proof and stain free. There used to change babies diapers when they are on the road or at home.

Herbs

My vet son, who once sold Irish flutes (he sold the business last year), got into the herb business. He is very busy in his vet business but his herb business is very demanding and profitable.

We Mentioned a Niche Market

It’s hard to compete with Walmart and Sears and Home Depot and supermarkets. Some years ago Saturday Night Live had a skit where a man and his wife opened a store that sold only one thing, Scotch Tape. They stocked the store and the mans at behind the counter smoking his pipe waiting for a customer to come in. He sold only one roll of tape.

The point is that a niche market may not be profitable and it may not even be a niche market. Think about it. Where do you buy scotch tape? You can get it anywhere so you don’t go to a special store for scotch tape. It is not a niche market. It is like a commodity, bread, milk and carrots.

Hobbies are Good and Can Be Profitable

Business often develops because of the hobbies or interest of an individual. A good example is the gentleman who loved to juggle who opened a store on the Internet which sold juggling supplies and equipment. It was very successful, A niche market stays successful until competition destroys it.

As I have illustrated, you need a product for your business.

It is best to have control over your own products.

Promoting or Selling Other Peoples Products

Some folks promote other people’s products on the Internet. Others deal with the distributor or manufacturer and sell the products on the Internet but have them delivered by the manufacturer.

Sometime back I was selling flagpoles and flagpole accessories from my website. My supplier was the manufacturer who drop shipped the product for me but I handled the customer relations.

Affiliate Marketing

If you do affiliate marketing, you will be promoting products, not selling them. You link to the vendors site and he does the selling. If he makes a sale, he pays you a commission. You don’t know who the customer is, but he does. He will pay you a high commission just so that he can take that customer away from you and make subsequent sales–which is where the profit is.

Yet affiliate marketers can earn good incomes. One source says  the average income is $5000 a year. However, most of the earnings are made by 10% of the affiliates while the other 90%’s earnings are essentially zilch. The reason that they are not earning income is because they thought they were going to get rich quick but didn’t realize that they would have to work very hard to build up an affiliate business. They drop out or just piddle along.

Various sources give various views on the income of affiliates. As a guess, beginning affiliates lose money, low-level affiliates earn up to $300 a day that some earn nothing at all, intermediate affiliates earn from $300 to $3000 a day, high-level affiliates earn above $3000 day, and the very top affiliates think that anything under $10,000 a day is crummy. Source: http://finchsells.com/2013/10/10/how-much-can-you-earn-from-affiliate-marketing/

Four of my friends earned their way through college. One made over $500,000. Another had a full-time business running after six months so he went full-time in the first year. Another had so many websites that he had to hire English majors at his university to provide the content for his sites.

I know quite a few folks who are earning from &30,000 to &100,000 a year. They are very hard workers and they know what they are doing.

Where to Learn Affiliate Marketing

The premier site for learning affiliate marketing is Wealthy Affiliate University. I joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2008 and I’m still there. I’m 84 years old so I won’t be much longer lol.

Business Start-up Decisions

if you have decided to start a business, start locally. Go to your local Chamber of Commerce and asked them where you can learn how to start a business in your area.

Contact your state and local colleges to see if they don’t have a free program to benefit you. A number of educational, business and civic organizations use retired business executives to teach new people how to start a business.

Talk to local business people in your area. Talk to your banker. If you seek an SBA loan, it must be initiated through your bank.

At the very beginning go to SBA.gov and start a business plan. Don’t worry about it being the actual plan you will use, at least not at the start. Keep revising your business plan until it is what you want. If you do have a retired executive working with you, have him review your plan.

Online Income System

Posted by test testadmin on April 26, 2016
You may not like this book for some reason but it is free.

You may not like this book for some reason but it is free.

You Can Use An Online Income System…BUT!

Connie Brentford wrote Make Money Online which describes 97 companies that will pay you to work at home. These jobs average about $15 per hour with a range of $10-$25 per hour.

Connie Brentford’s books focus on showing readers how to create a freedom lifestyle while working from home or traveling. As a digital nomad she’s has traveled the world full-time, making online income for over nine years.

She’s been published in numerous online publications and featured in US print magazines as a consultant for blogs that focus on self-publishing, freelance writing, online business, social media and the location independent lifestyle.

She’s has been dubbed “America’s Work From Home Expert” by Woman’s World Magazine.

The companies she describes in detail require a quiet place to work, special considerations for your phone, and sometimes a requirement for fast typing speeds. You may be required to work certain hours for a certain number of hours per week.

Work assignments are varied. It could be a customer service agent or a telemarketer.

The book is free on Amazon in the Kindle store. There are many other such books you can choose from. Some reviewers say that is a good idea.

Customer Reviews

About half of the readers give this book a five star rating. There are many who rated it as one star.

Top Customer Review (Typical)

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Some Detective Work and Google the Author’s Name
By Leafy800 on November 13, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
These books about making money from home are getting very popular and they are attracting knock-off artists.

I did a bit of digging and found out Connie Brentford is a pro who writes books about making money online because she actually does it.

97 Real Companies That Pay You to Work in Your Pajamas is loaded with excellent, actionable information that saved me dozens of hours of research and vetting online. It provides solid advice you might not have thought of yourself. It’s a great value for three bucks. (I love e-books!)

Do yourself a favor and Google the author’s name for any of these self-help titles before you buy them. You’ll discover many “authors” have zero online presence or accessibility and have just created copycat titles of the popular ebooks. You’ll also find the real pros who have busy, informative blogs on the same topic as their ebooks, active Facebook pages and helpful Twitter feeds.

My advice is to buy from the ones who can continue to help you and not from the knock-off artists who know nothing about the book’s subject but only how to game the Amazon rating system.

Negative Review (Typical)

1.0 out of 5 stars Don’t Ignore the Bad Reviews!
By Ian Barti on August 26, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
This short booklet had a nice cover and a thorough and well written description so I ignored the bad reviews and bought it. While the author spent a lot of time on the cover and description to sell you the book the book itself was extremely short (think done in a few minutes) and added no extra value. All of the information here could be found completely free and in much more detail on Google in less time then it takes to read this booklet that simply acts as a kind of ad for the author’s other books. DO NOT MAKE MY MISTAKE AND IGNORE THE BAD REVIEWS! Avoid this book like the plague!

My Suggestion

Grab this or one of the other such books on Amazon, find out what companies interest you, and then research the individual companies yourself.

My Conclusion

To me, these jobs are very much like regular day jobs. Although some of them pay commissions on sales, with most of them, you are stuck with an hourly wage. There is not much future in that.

Legitimate Work Home Jobs

Posted by test testadmin on April 21, 2016

Introduction

How Can I Support My Family. Minimum wage is not doing it?

How Can I Support My Family. Minimum wage is not doing it?

Folks often ask about legitimate work home jobs on the Internet. Are there illegitimate work home jobs? I think they are talking about jobs that are not scams promoted by Internet so-called gurus.

Gurus start out with a free offer. Then they sell you something for $37 promising you the world. Then they say that if you really want to own the world, you should buy this $67 product. What all of these things don’t work, and the groove knows they will not work, he offers to consult with you for $297.

There are many folks who have tried to earn money on the Internet you have instead been scammed by some guru who is actually taken them for thousands of dollars.

It’s no wonder that folks are looking for legitimate work home jobs. There are a number of ways to earn money on the Internet. However, these are the main ways that have worked for me.

1. Selling Your Own Products on the Internet

You can create your own products and sell them online. You can start by opening a free store such as ETSY. You will get immediate traffic to the store which is a major problem in starting any business on the Internet.

If you’re making the products by hand, and you get to the point where too many orders are coming in, you can contact local folks and asked them to help you in the production.

If your product is a digital product such as a book, you can publish it easily on Amazon and they will sell it for some

What kind of skills do you have? What have you learned from your past experiences?

Examples:

A. My wife’s caregiver’s son made a key ring holder in my kitchen using my tools. He put it up on a new ETSY store and sold it immediately. It was simply a board with some burned-in writing, which he created with my soldering iron, and some hooks which he screwed into the board. He has made many of these boards since.

B. Two of my granddaughters create and manufacture baby clothing. They have about a dozen employees helping them. Each of them is earning enough money to support the family and to send the husbands through college. They have an Etsy store and and their own website,

C. Another of my granddaughters has a partner. They import special leather from overseas and then manufacture waterproof and stain proof mats. They recently built a 3000 ft.² warehouse to house their product. My granddaughter says she’s going to start another business soon.

D. My No. 3 son is a veterinarian that he has an herb business. He sells books and lessons which he creates, other people’s books, textures and herbs which he sells on the Internet and that conventions in the Inter-mountain area. This business is also very successful.

E. By daughter is a RN, but she is also a professional artist. She started as a portrait artist, but because I started her painting when she was four-years-old and I painted landscapes and wildlife, she has started painting landscapes. She was in town this last weekend, and we went out in the countryside and photographed old barns and then went down to the Snake River where we photographed river scenes. She is is as persnickety about her photography as she is about her paintings which she sells from her own website and at local sales.

2. Selling Other People’s Products on the Internet

Here I am talking about real products, that must be shipped to the customer, that you did not create.

For example, you might go to a local manufacturer or craftsman and set up an arrangement to sell his or her products.

You can contact manufacturers and deal with those who will drop ship products to your customers.

Examples:

A. I sold books on the Internet for many years. Many of these were books that I bought at yard and estate sales. I sold them through Alibris.com and Amazon.com. The first book I sold was Birds of New Mexico. I purchased it for $.50 and immediately sold it for $150. Since I am a birder, I wished I had of kept it. (I still have a booklet, somewhat now obsolete, that I wrote some years back: How to Buy Books for Pennies and Sell Them for Dollars. I will send you a copy if you put 2 1-dollar bills in an envelope and sent it to TJ Books, 213 3rd. Ave. N., Buhl, ID 83316)

B. I have a friend in New York, Tyler Hicks, who publishes many books on how to make a living in business. I went to Bizland.com and set up a store with e-commerce capabilities so that I could take credit cards. All I had to do was place inventory in the store. I traffic package came with the store and so I was selling books immediately. I also listed books from other publishers.

C. I sold flagpoles and flagpole accessories for many years from my own site. They were dropship to my customers after they paid for them using my PayPal account which allows people to buy using credit cards.

D. A number of friends of mine use the Amazon Fulfillment Program. They decide on what product they want to sell, contact a foreign manufacturer to create and personalize it, have the product shipped to Amazon where Amazon handles all of the orders and customer relations. If you decide to do this, be prepared to create the Amazon sales page for your product. My friends are becoming very rich doing this. There are risk.

3. Promoting Other People’s Products on the Internet

I’m talking about promoting products, not selling them. The process is simply promoting products and sending the reader to the vendors sales page. The vendor ships a product and steals your customer from you because you don’t know who buys and who doesn’t. The vendor pays you commissions on the first sales, but not on subsequent sales.

I have a lot of friends that are making good money in affiliate marketing. The premier place to learn this is a Wealthy Affiliate.com. I have four friends in particular who worked their way through college as affiliate marketers.

It is best to do affiliate marketing from your own website. The website must be focused on ace certain segment of a large market called a niche market. People coming to your website are not looking for product in particular. They are looking for information and solutions to their problems. Therefore you must continually supply quality relevant information to your readers, suggesting products almost as an afterthought.

Examples:

Kyle and his bride and daughter. Kyle is co-owner of WA

A.  Kyle while in college, created an affiliate marketing business and six months and went full time at the end of his first year. Independently, Carson did the same thing. Both paid all of their college expenses in this way. They are the founders of WA.

B. Mark, from New Zealand, copied a friend and put a single batter on a single website and earn $50 a month just as his friend had. Mark set up many sites. He paid his fellow students, those majoring in English, to write copy for his websites. He had to rent a large home as office space for these writers. His father was amazed and went into business with him. He is the founder of Affilorama.

C. Steve and his wife, members of WA, met Dom and his bride-to- in Hawaii a few weeks ago and attended their wedding. Dom is an American living in Taiwan and is also a member of WA. These folks travel and are supported totally by affiliate marketing.

about me

Veronica is a from Sweden and likes to stay home with her kids.

D. Veronica is from Sweden and she wanted to stay home with her children. She supports yourself through affiliate marketing, she is also a member of WA, and she travels home to Sweden several times each year to see her family.

4. Blogging

Blogging is performed from a website. This site is a blogging site. The requirements for your website are the same as for affiliate marketing. You can earn money on your site through affiliate marketing, allowing others to post ads on your website and by allowing the search engines to place ads on your website. The main search engines are Google and Yahoo/Bing. You may be able to see some Bing ads on my site.

Conclusion to Legitimate Work Home Jobs:

These four ways are the ways that I use or have used to make money on the Internet. You can take surveys if you want to misrepresent yourself and earn money. The problem here is that you must fit the profile for the survey and so you may have to tell some lies in order to be allowed to take the survey.. There’s nothing like taking part of the survey and then being told that they really don’t want you to continue so you don’t get paid.

Data entry jobs are available on the Internet. I would rather’s toss hamburgers at McDonald’s. To me it was tedious and low-paying work.

You can make money as a writer on the Internet by peddling your services at fiverr.com or and other such sites. You also can create banners and logos and such and do the same thing many are doing this and earning money.

That’s enough for this old man! I have to eat some breakfast so that I can take my meds. Besides my wife’s caregiver will be here in a few minutes and I have to make sure that my wife has her meds before she gets here. I don’t want her to chew my ears out. You would think that she would have more respect for an 84-year-old man and her employer.

Generate Passive Income

Posted by test testadmin on April 20, 2016

Introduction to Generate Passive Income

Build your website and get going!

Build your website and get going!

Times have been tough and they’re not getting any better. Many day jobs are not paying enough money to support a family. If investments are available, they are being used to educate children and to provide the daily needs of the family. There is nothing left for retirement.

This is a very serious situation. Some folks who are living on only Social Security are actually in poverty. You see them welcoming folks into Walmart.

Breadwinners who have to leave home to work a part-time job to supplement their income, are losing precious time with her family and working themselves to death. They need to be working in a situation that they control’s so that they can work from home if they like and earn enough money for the present and future.

Have you read Rich Man Poor Man? You probably have. That book gives the key to putting your energies into your own businesses and investing.

What Is Passive Income?

From Wikipedia we learn:
“Passive income is an income received on a regular basis, with little effort required to maintain it. It is closely related to the concept of “unearned income”.

“The American Internal Revenue Service categorizes income into three broad types, active (earned) income, passive (unearned) income, and portfolio income.

“It defines passive income as only coming from two sources: rental activity or “trade or business activities in which you do not materially participate.
“Other financial and government institutions also recognize it as an income obtained as a result of capital growth or in relation to negative gearing. Passive income is usually taxable.”

Examples of Passive Income

My friend, Paul, purchased single-family homes, then with sweat equity he remodeled these homes and converted them to multifamily homes and rented them out.

Doing this over and over again, he generated a large monthly income. Then he create multi-family structures from scratch which generated even more income. He hired a manager to handle his real estate investments. He moved on to other things. This income was generated from assets, rather than from the active participation in a business.

As you can see it may take a lot of time and energy to generate passive income, but once you have accomplished this, you can invest in other instruments that pay you continually but do not require your active participation.

In the first case, the passive income is coming from a business that you no longer have an active part in.

In the second case, passive income is coming from investments which require no effort from you.

Well, I Think I’ve Driven That into the Ground.

I have either confuse the heck out of you, are you know the difference between active and passive income. No matter what it is, the IRS will try to take part of it away from you.

Over the years, I used employer investment plans.  We mainly live on the passive income from these plans. We also have Social Security, with my wife and I contributed to. That sounds passive to me.

Read Rich Dad Poor Dad

You probably have read this book. It explains the differences in working at a day job and building a business with later contributions to an investment portfolio. Oh, did I mention this before? Well, I am old and senile and often repeat myself.

How to Generate Passive Income

1. Build a business. You should generated a business plan first do

Small Business Association. Start a business plan here now.

Small Business Association. Start a business plan here now.

this at SBA.gov. If your business is an Internet-based, can do most of your work from home. There are  educational institutions and business organizations that will also help you get up and going. Call your local Chamber of Commerce and local institutions to learn more.

2. Invest money that you earned into bonds, dividend paying stocks, retirement funds and annuities. My stocks were converted into annuities to preserve the capital.

3. Invest in real estate for rental income.

4. Consider network marketing which requires much toil to get started and to keep it going. It’s not for me!

Conclusion:

You can generate passive income if you first generate active income so that you have the resources to acquire assets that will then pay you passive income.

Although passive income is hands-off, to get started is hands-on. To generate passive income for retirement or because your day job is not generating enough income to support your family in a way that you want to support, then consider Internet marketing.

In Internet marketing, you can sell your own products or you can promote other people’s products and let them do the selling. Either way works.

In my family, we have always preferred to sell products of our own creation. My children and grandchildren and a number of very successful business. I once sold products but now I’m 84 years old and I prefer to promote other people’s products which is called affiliate marketing.

Watch out for scammers!

To learn to do affiliate marketing you have to watch out for the many scam artists who are there to take your money and teach you nothing.  I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate since 2008. It is the premier training site for affiliate marketers and there is no scams in operation there, no gurus to pick you up by the heals and shake the coins out of your pockets.

There are two membership levels of Wealthy Affiliate. I suggest that you start with the free membership which will give you two websites to practice on.

Later you can join is a premium member which costs $47 a month. That is active a lot cheaper than going to college (where you can learn affiliate marketing anyway) and the cost drops to about one-half if you pay annually. Wealthy Affiliate has two affiliate programs that you can join. One is to promote memberships and the other one is to promote the JAAXY keyword tool. I have never had to pay one red cent for membership because of these two programs.

If you have a number of websites, and if you’re a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate, you can host up to 30 websites and as many free sites as you like.

Quite a deal! (P.S. I’m tjbooks at Wealthy Affiliate.)

Here is a summary of membership levels at Wealthy Affiliate:

How to Survive on Minimum Wage

Posted by test testadmin on April 18, 2016
How Can I Support My Family. Minimum wage is not doing it?

How Can I Support My Family. Minimum wage is not doing it?

Do you know how to  survive on minimum wage? You can’t!

States have a minimum wage from $7.25-10 per hour. Exceptions our Alabama that has no minimum and Wyoming which has a minimum of $5.15. Many families have one or two family members who work one or more minimum wage jobs trying to make ends meet.

Food Cost

It would take about $300 per month for food needs for the average adult in the U.S.  Actually, about $200 is spent so some are undernourished.

Housing and Other Cost

Over all annual cost for one person is about $20,000.00 which includes food cost.

Let’s See?

A man and a wife have three teenage children and they both hold minimum wage jobs to support them. For a 40 hour work week at say $8.00 per hour, they earn together $33,280 each year. That is enough to support how many people if the cost of living is $20,000.00? Almost 2 people.  They are 5 people.

Food Cost Estimate $2000.00/month

Housing Cost Estimate $600.00

Insurance and Medical $400.00

Car Payment $350.00

Clothing and Such $100.00

Utilities $300.00

That’s $3,750.00 each month.  That’s $45,000.00 each year. But that is not all the expenses (and I’ve low-balled here). There are educational expenses, business expenses, medical expenses not covered by insurance, entertainment, eating out and donations, etc. The family might pay over $3,000.00 in taxes.

Such  a family would be hurting!

Many families are hurting!

Thinking Outside the box can get you on the road to earning sufficient money again.

Thinking Outside the box can get you on the road to earning sufficient money again.

Just think about a single-parent family with one source of income. Some are on welfare. Some end up on the street.

Not only minimum wage folks are having problems. Some folks with good incomes have been forced out of their homes due to economic conditions. Those who have been able to keep their homes, have found that the value of their homes has dramatically dropped. The loan value on their property is now zero whereas not long ago, they would have been able to take a second mortgage to get through rough times.

Many people have lost their jobs due to downsizing and outsourcing. They have become underemployed with some taking minimum wage jobs as second jobs to supplement their income. Many of these are at the age where they are trying to put children through college. You know what has happened to college costs having gone up 1200% in recent years.

Retired people get few increases in retirement income. Small increases by Social Security don’t do much. Savings put away in 401 and other plans have diminished dramatically. Some have tremendous costs to take care of the aging. (It cost about $60,000 a year for me to take care of my wife who has a ALZ. I have insurance but the company is facing bankruptcy.)

If seniors cannot pay for their care, the states gobble up all of their assets when they die to pay in part the cost for the care that the state provide. There is nothing left as an inheritance.

Work From Home Jobs

One advantages of marketing on the Internet is that you can work at home in your underware.

One advantages of marketing on the Internet is that you can work at home in your underware.

Many workers have become tired of the workplace. A day job has expenses such as transportation, work clothing, eating outside meals, and other business expenses. If they can work at home, they don’t need a day care center to take care of their children. This works well for stay-at-home mothers. But finding the  right work from home job can be difficult.

If a person has special skills, he can often provide those skills from home. For example, after I retired some 20 odd years ago, I did engineering consulting which included travel to foreign countries.

Those with secretarial skills can provide those skills to local offices. Accountants and medical professionals can work from their own.

If you are a writer, and you can learn income from your writing. I have written a number of novels and that is certainly a work-at-home job.

The World of the Internet

WAU will train you to market globally. There is a lot to  learn and that take time.

WAU will train you to market globally. There is a lot to learn and that take time.

There are ways to make money on the Internet. From my experience, and that of my family, creating your own products and selling them on the Internet is a fast way to earn income. If you have skills such as knitting, sewing, crocheting woodworking, metalworking and such, you can open up a store on a site such as ETSY at no cost and start selling immediately.

Three of my granddaughters are making good incomes by creating products and selling them on the Internet. My son is a veterinarian, but he has had two good businesses Internet-based. One he sold musical instruments(which he sold last year) and the other is in herb business which he operates on and off the Internet.

Two of my granddaughters are putting cousins through college. They have children and marketing on the Internet allows them to earn a good income. They have about a dozen employees working for them.

My other granddaughter imports materials from China and then has products created locally which she and her partner sell on the Internet.

Stay Away from this Guru. He will drain you dry.

Stay Away from this Guru. He will drain you dry.

You can promote other people’s products through affiliate marketing. You must be careful here. There are too many gurus that will give you a free gift and then grab you by the hills and shake the coins out of your pockets. They will drain you dry.

The premier training site for affiliate marketing is Wealthy Affiliate. They have a free membership which is lifelong and it will get you started. They will give you two free websites.

Like so many college students who have worked their way through college through affiliate marketing, Kyle and Carson, the creators of Wealthy Affiliate, did the same thing, joined up a created training center. I joined WA in 2008.

Small Business Association. Start a business plan here now.

Work from Home Jobs for the Disabled

Posted by test testadmin on April 16, 2016
One advantages of marketing on the Internet is that you can work at home in your underware.

One advantages of marketing on the Internet is that you can work at home in your underwear.

Work from Home Jobs for the Disabled

Disabled folks not only have to deal with their ailments, they also have to deal with financial problems. For the disabled person by himself or herself, the problems are multiplied. I have a number of friends who are in this exact situation.

A friend of mine, a horse trainer, was thrown from a horse which injured her spinal column. She lives by herself with her dog. Times are tough for her, but she still is trying to earn a living using her computer.

Another friend was a professional musician. He no longer can work a regular job. He still has to support his family. He does it using his computer.

It sad that too many disabled people do not receive the help they need from family, friends or from the church they belong to.

Actually, it is pathetic.

Many handicap people, some under very difficult conditions, go to work every day outside the home. Some have specially equipped vans for a wheelchair or specially equipped cars so they can drive, some even have a service dog to help them. So they have to get up in the morning, get dressed, find something to eat, and then travel to work. I’m sure that many are exhausted by the time they get to the workplace.

Some handicapped people must stay at home confined to bed or a wheelchair. Some have the use of their hands, but some do not. Not having the use of your hands is a severe complication. However, at this minute, I am dictating into my computer. The main reason that I dictate is because I have carpal tunnel. But others cannot manipulate a keyboard and they must give their computer voice commands to accomplish what they want to accomplish.

Work at home jobs using a computer can be a very good alternative for a handicapped person. Still, he or she needs the ability to write.

Writers can always be hired, but that is an added expense.

If an individual has the use of his or her hands, she can create products. My granddaughters have a business which hires a dozen or so people. But their employees must have the use of both hands.

However, a person with the use of only one hand who has artistic capability, can produce artwork which can be sold on the Internet or in local shops. Even some souls without hands sometimes do this.

Even I have an ETSY Store

You can market your own products on the Internet in a free store such as Etsy.

Affiliate Marketing

You can also market other peoples products which you never have to handle. You simply promote products on your website and direct folks to click on a link that goes to the vendor’s site. The vendors ships the product and pays you a sales commission. That is called affiliate marketing.

I suggest two places to go for training in affiliate marketing, not ignoring the fact that you must have a computer to do this. One is Affilorama. They have a number of tutorials there to help you get going.

Another place that is free is ClickBank where they have excellent training for affiliate marketing. ClickBank will provide you with digital products to promote.

The premier place for affiliate marketing training is Wealthy Affiliate. They recently added a free lifetime membership which will give you two free websites and will give you the initial training you need to be an affiliate marketer. From the start, they offer two affiliate programs that can help you pay your way. If you later decide to take out a premier membership which costs $47 a month (cut in half if you pay annually) , you will be trained extensively in marketing.

Although I have always sold products on the Internet rather than doing affiliate marketing, I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate since 2008 which has helped my grandchildren and my son to create very profitable businesses. But now I’m 84 years old and I no longer sell products, I am doing much more affiliate marketing.

How Some Have or Are Hitting the Jackpot

The owner of Afillorama was a college student in New Zealand. A friend of his had a banner on his website and he received $50 a month from that banner, so he made up his own website and learned he could earn money.

Then he made many websites and hired English majors to write content on them. His dad saw that he was earning money and he joined him. Later, he decided to help others become affiliate marketers.

Kyle, the co-owner of Wealthy Affiliate University, began affiliate marketing when he was a college student. He used what is called PPC or pay-per-click, to drive traffic to his websites.

In the first six months he got to the point where he was earning a full-time income. By the end of the year, he decided to go into the business full-time.

Carson, Kyle’s friend, both to live in Vancouver, Canada, was also a student and he was pursuing the same path as Kyle. That’s when they join together and created Wealthy Affiliate.

Steve joined WA a year after I did. He is independent and he and his wife travel around the world with Steve working from his computer wherever he is. Steve earns over $30,000 a year just by using the WA affiliate programs. That is only part of his income.

Dom lives in Taiwan and he very recently took his fiancee to Hawaii, met up with Steve and his wife, and got married. He also makes his living as an affiliate marketer. Both of these gentlemen are good friends of mine.

Another dear friend, is Veronica. She has a  site called ItsVicky.com along with many other sites. She likes to work at home because she can be with her children. She was born and raised in Sweden and so she likes to go there every time she can. She goes several times a year all paid by affiliate marketing which she learned at WA. Vicky has a number of interest but seems to specialize in babies and children and promotes products in that area.

Pot Pie Girl, Jennifer, lives down south had always has made a great income by affiliate marketing. She is a longtime member of Wealthy Affiliate. She is a pro golfer so she likes to play the game and affiliate marketing gives her the time.

Rich, who lives in London, was experienced in advertising before he joined WA. Needless to say, he has been very successful as an affiliate marketer.

Getting Started!

I guess I could go on here all day mentioning people who are making their living as affiliate marketers had have been trained by WA that however, will not help you very much. What will help you is going to WA, signing up for a free membership, go through the Affiliate Boot Camp, starting two free sites and start promoting.

If you like what you are doing and have the ability and time, then I suggest that you become a Premium Member and start a new website using your own domain rather than a free domain.

You will be able to start your website from day one.

WA uses WordPress, as do many domain hosting companies, so you do not need to know any computer language to prepare your website. You will be given every detail in the boot camp.

To start, you will write a privacy page and the details of the page will be given to you. You will also write an about page where you will tell people about yourself.

You will easily import pictures into your documents from your computer. You will be given the links and be told how to promote wealthy affiliate.

You will be shown how to join the JAAXY keyword tool affiliate program. Your sales commissions from WA and from JAAXY will be paid through PayPal so you will need to set up a free account over there you will need an email address to do this.

You’ll be shown how to find a niche market which is a small part of a larger market. You can join the Amazon Associates program and then you can promote any Amazon product that you want to.

For example, say that your niche market is toddler’s. You can go to Amazon and find products and even brands. You can get the links to these products and place them on your website.

Another place to get links is CJ.com.

You will want to promote products that you know about so that you can recommend them or advise people not to buy them. To do this you have to be able to write because your website will not be recognized by the search engines unless you are providing a sufficient amount of quality information to your niche market.

For example, you could write an article about problems with breast-feeding. You could reference government links, Web M.D. links and Wikipedia. The search engines like you to link to these kinds of sites. (Notice that none of these sites will be in competition with you.)

In your article, you could recommend some good books on breast-feeding and link them to the Amazon site. You could also describe clothing for the mother that allows breast feeding and salves for sore nipples, etc.

You will want to set yourself up as an expert.

You do this by writing and advising. You might want to start an email list so that you can communicate further with your niche members.

The more desirable your site is, the higher the search engines will rank you. You want rankings on the first page of the search results for the keywords you are using in your articles.

You probably have the idea by now.

The following chart shows the different memberships at Wealthy Affiliate:

Conclusion:

Finding work from home jobs for the disabled can be complicated for some individuals, but there are ways to make a living using the Internet. You  can even avoid the worries about computer technology. You can do what others are doing.

Using affiliate marketing to earn a living is not easy. It takes a lot of hard work. Each blog (website) must be updated often, at the start at least two or three times a week (later, once a week). You need to learn how use a keyword tool. I use JAXXY but you will have a good free tool at WA. It can take up to a year to generate sufficient income but you should be going in about three to six months or so. After all, it is a business.

Three of my granddaughters have product businesses, two making products and one importing materials and then making them. It is a lot of work and you need to learn a lot about business. Put if you have product and get into an Internet store like ETSY, you can earn money almost instantly.

No matter which way you go, I would have a business plan. You can

create one at SBA.gov.

A Business Meeting

Right now, I have two of my granddaughters in my home visiting. They live in different states but they  each have a business which sells their products on the Internet. This morning has been one big business meeting between the two. They are very smart business women and it is fun to listen to them help each other in their businesses.

That too is one thing about WA. You will never be alone!
