Internet Income: The Key Elements Of Making Money Online

The internet influences nation’s more than some governments. It’s taken on a life of its own and has created wealth beyond anyone’s imagination. Everyone likely knows Google is the granddaddy of all internet-based companies. It’s reported that its income is $520 billion annually and is the framework by which most other giants plant their websites, growing them and their off-shoots around the universe.

Amazon, Facebook, Tencent, Alibaba, Uber, Baidu, Ant Financial and Sales Force are respectively the next largest internet-based companies. America, India and China seemingly rule the worldwide web. Together you’ll find them working in the retail space with America, of course, being the major consumer of China’s products and India’s tech savvy. Americans have grown dependent on China’s ability to produce a massive amount of goods at ultra cheap comparatively.

The most used languages on the internet are Chinese, English and Spanish. With the Google Website Language Translator Plugin websites can be produced in multiple languages, expanding an online business’ internet audience even more. In the USA, the states of Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Oklahoma, California, Arkansas and Tennessee show the most interest in creating online businesses per Google Trends. Visit Statisa, Google Trends or this post to evaluate your potential audience (Audience Identification) business potenital. 

There are over 3.75 billion internet users. This is growing greatly every year. In fact, TNW cites there are one million new users a day. China, India, USA, Brazil and Japan have the most internet users. With the numbers being so explosive, particularly in cell phone or mobile internet sector, it seems almost silly not to have a business online. So the question is, are you interested in hitching a ride onto Google’s and other browsers’ bandwagons? Of course you are, or you would not be here. 

Before outlining the many ways to make money on the internet, a pragmatic picture should be painted so you may ascertain if it is a place you want to invest your time and money into regularly. Good news is the sky’s the limit, at least in the USA. You are basically limited by your imagination, skill-set and dedication. Newbies, beginners and non-techies can easily create internet income, but a few vital skills must be mastered and, the internet’s educational resources are vast.

What It Takes To Make Money Online With Little Or No Money

You don’t have to be an Einstein to create income streams on the internet. “Making it” means generating active and, better yet passive income, that pours into your bank account while sleeping. Actors, writers, investors and the “elites” of society have one thing most desire and that is “royalty” or passive income. Investipedia defines passive income: “Passive income is earnings derived from a rental property, limited partnership or other enterprise in which a person is not actively involved. As with active income, passive income is usually taxable. However, it is often treated differently by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Portfolio income is considered passive income by some analysts, so dividends and interest would therefore be considered passive.”

In laymen terms, passive income is basically a “set it and forget it” formula by which you, for example, develop a website that highlights and sells several digital media products. Users visit your site, pay and download the media, and you make money by not doing any work other then the initial set-up. Passive income (also known as residual income) can easily be obtained online, but a lot of time and work have to be put in the beginning,

Though it must be said that a good percentage of people do not make any money online, there are some that make hand-over-fist money, and do it because they employed such inner dynamics as determination, the right attitude and continuously strived for self-improvement. Here are some golden nuggets. Huffington Post started from nothing and now makes a reported $14 million/month. Alex Becker, now on online guru, got out of the service, knew nothing about the internet and makes several million a year. Owners of Create and Go blog started from nothing and now it makes over $100K/month. The stories are vast. Most people started with few skills and a little money, but followed their dreams until realized.

The internet allows you to explore your creative side, too. From the arts and sciences to the written word, there are so many tools to help you bring your passions and imaginations to reality. The above photos depict some of the creative things you can do visually, interpreting your inner-most feelings and thoughts. The New York Times reported, “A generation of Chinese is coming of age with an internet that is distinctively different from the rest of the web. Over the past decade, China has blocked Google, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as thousands of other foreign websites, including The New York Times and Chinese Wikipedia. A plethora of Chinese websites emerged to serve the same functions — though they came with a heavy dose of censorship.” Citizens of the free world aren’t shackled, so have gratitude and follow your dreams.

1. Must Treat Online Business As A Business To Succeed

The most wonderful things about making money online are that it could happen quickly, it can be “unlimited” in many senses and it doesn’t take having a college degree or any formal education. It does take however, dedication, troubleshooting skills, putting in long hours and following through day in, day out. There’s no magic bullet, hard work has to be put in. If you don’t work it, it will not happen. Take the short route to success by producing quality over quantity. Serve up valuable content or products that you believe in and have tried. Run the numbers, analyze progress. The great aspect of the internet lifestyle is most every tool you need is free, in which the most vital ones are listed to the left or under Forty Free Resources To Help Build Website Blogs With Style And Functionality.

2. Program Your Brain To Succeed With Action Steps

People have been online for five, six, seven years without making a penny. There are several things missing when this happens. A lack of strategy, not treating your online business like a business and having the right attitude. To have the right attitude is to put your mindset on a positive course that is re-enforced knowing the income platform you’ve chosen is sure-fired to make money. Research, research, research the platform by which you want to make money. If it’s blogging, read numerous bloggers’ stories and the forumlas that brought them success. If it’s CPA marketing, do the same. Once your decision is made, map out daily, weekly and monthly strategies to bring you success. Visual the success. Have your internal dialogue say something like this, “I aim to make $500/day, $500/day, $500/day,” as several bloggers have shown proof it is more than possible. Manifest what you want and remember, you are what you focus on. 

3. Stay Focused & Think Of Long-Term Success

Many people who are trying to create a stream of income online are plagued with the “shining object syndrome.” In a way, it might be a good way to learn certain skill-sets, terms and educational tools. Signing up for anyone of thousands of online programs that likely have monthly fees does put you through the ringer of learning in most cases. Anytime you learn is a good thing, but you may find it counter intuitive and lining only the pocket system(s) you’ve chosen to be involved with. Everyone has their own preferences and your personality type may not work well in certain formats, so deeply research what platform(s) feel most comfortable for you and what one will help you achieve your unique goals. 

4. Some Of The Internet's Dirty Little Secrets, Scams, Spams & Thank You Mams

If you’re a seasoned onliner or entrepreneur who has made it through the “ringer,” you already know some of these dirty little secrets of a few internet businesses. Firstly, clickbait can be viewed as good and bad, but an awareness of what’s going on is worth pointing out. For example, a pop-up come onto your screen and says, “Get Your Free eBook Or Online Course Here.” You give ’em your email and they email you the freebie. That’s good as they captured your email to retarget you. What can be a bit nefarious is if they ask for a credit card and say they will only process one dollar for a particular system, and then take you through a funnel that has umpteen upsells, and don’t quit charging your credit card. If you sign up for trials, you should not have to give a credit card as they are counting on you forgetting you signed up. So be aware of this. 

Don’t sign-up for companies that have no support systems or phone numbers. They are in it only for the money and don’t care if you can figure things out or not. To avoid such companies, research them on YouTube, the internet or Facebook before getting involved.

Another deception on the internet is many reviews are fake. The reviewer is only trying to make a sell of that product or bash that product so they may push their competing product. 

Often times promoters push and push their products and leave out vital information. They may act like the price of admission is only $39, but all the features they touted may only be accessed at the $129 level. They should have this disclosed on their websites, but often don’t so do your due diligence and explore. 

An Aesop fable holds water on the internet. “A cottager and his wife had a hen who laid a golden egg every day. They supposed the hen must contain a great lump of gold in its inside, and in order to get the gold they killed [her]. Having done so, they found to their surprise that the hen differed in no respect from their other hens. The foolish pair, thus hoping to become rich all at once, deprived themselves of the gain of which they were assured day by day.” In laymen terms, there’s normally no treasure trove on gold to be gotten in just one day. You have to work hard, consistently and earnestly. Google, Facebook and other platforms don’t want spamming or scamming and are highly tuned in to tricksters.

5. Solid Strategies, Tactics & Diligence Create Infinite Growth

Attraction marketing is a key element in creating a solid foundation for your online business. Attraction marketing is not only about developing a brand that looks appealing but delivers incomparable value. In and of itself, attraction marketing depicts strategies and tactics that will deliver infinite growth. 

Aside from creating an attractive brand largely embodied in a logo that will go on all the social media platforms, invoices, letterhead and email signatures, a true patriot of a good internet business will be true to their client base and followers more than anything as are the soldiers who will grow your product line more than anyone else. They will be a repeat customer. They will follow you and share your information. And, they will appreciate your dedication to service, impeccable deliveries and quality. 

It is said “apostle brands” provide top-notch everything, by keeping their consumers first and foremost happy. Amazon is a prime example of this. Fast deliveries, good products, trend makers and shakers, affordable deals. In the long run such apostle brands “provide entertainment, nourishment, imagination and utter joy. They inspire enduring trust, loyalty, love and almost evangelical dendorsements and advocacy to their fans and customers,” says BCG blog. Few will make it to the level of the world’s apostle brands, but their model is on the web to mimic, albeit originality should mix into the fold. Your PERSONALITY counts and needs to be the source code of your business.

>The essentials of running an effective online business are monetizing your website with the likes of Google AdWords, knowing the algorithms of Google and how to SEO correctly.  For your convenience, we are showcasing Amazon’s top selling references on the aforementioned subjects. Each are written by authorities in their respective fields.

For clarity, an e-commerce store is a virtual store that promotes goods, services or information for customers to purchase. Thetrend is not a trend anymore, as a vast amount of people nowadays prefer to shop online. Huge vendors like Walmart, Target and Home Depot are beginning to focus on their online sales machines as findings from the likes of CBS News say stores are not seeing the under 50 crowd physically in-stores as they prefer shopping on their phones or computers.

Perhaps the downside of online shopping is that there are only so many “top spots” on a page and the “big boys” will always be the ones who can afford top billing. It’s natural for a business such as Google to rank payers first and, of course, the gigantic stores can afford the top-gun SEOs to keep them up on page one, too. What’s emerged from our ever-growing attachment to the internet are other online businesses and jobs. Perhaps the most notable is that of the affiliate marketer, who obtains a percentage of profit when marketing others’ goods and services. If they sell a baby stroller from Amazon through a niche website they created, they’d get a percentage of the total sale. The affiliate is most often responsible for shipping products to buyers and for accepting return of product if client isn’t satisfied.

Amazon and eBay are to two biggest online stores in the world. They have stores within their “stores” that are owned and operated by the likes of this author. For quality assurance, they have guideposts in place and are magnetic forces in drawing buyers to their corridors helping so many sell their wares online. Owners can brand stores and create their own product lines or “drop ship” other manufacturers’ goods from their stores. Many a millionaire has been made from the Amazon and eBay platforms. Naturally, both giants want you to make money. They more you make, the more they make. A win/win.
