That got me to thinking about how I was going to afford to EAT. I started playing with the internet to see if there was possibly a way to make money, avoid the overwhelming suffocating regulations imposed by those morons in DC, and try to move forward with growing my empire.
Needless to say, the learning curve was huge. I put up the first website I ever made back in 1998. It was to peddle the "Fish in a Vase" concept. I think that my wife and I made about a grand profit, all told. Of course, there is not a really good way to ship FISH. I think that somewhere in my vast array of storage, that site still exists. I would love to find it, too. But, even then, I knew there was a way to make money online.
Since late last year, I have been playing with traffic-getting methods, trying all kinds of content distribution, reading everything that I could get my hands on, and subscribing to hundreds of sites and newsletters. Dude, the information is overwhelming and I had not really moved any closer to my goal of the EMPIRE LAUNCH.
Anyhoo, I got sick last week. Man, I have an ear infection that will NOT quit. For those of you that do not know, I have had NINE ear surgeries in my lifetime. I am totally deaf in my right ear and have marginal hearing in my left. Yes, I read lips well. (Yes, I notice your TEETH, too!) But, on the rare occasions that I get an ear infection, dude, it is damned bad. I have not strayed from the couch for quite a few days, but I have been studying and getting prepared.
All that said, finally, I am motivated to just flat out launch everything that has been banging around in my head for months, NAY! years.
Oddly enough, there are some bigger players that I have been reading and following that have two big launches this week.
Dave Navarro has launched a great coaching program that is sure to be huge. All kinds of blogging biggies, internet marketers, and online merchants are involved and just the freebies that he is offering can help anyone exponentially increase their knowledge and effectiveness. The links are at my affiliate blog. I would appreciate you registering on my blog, too, if you are interested in generating some online income. No, you know me, I ain't no spammer. Besides, I am just starting this thing anyway, what am I going to do, send you photos of the laziest dog and cat on Earth?
Also, one of the first sites that I joined when I started this quest for knowledge was Andy Jenkins' Video Boss. I really enjoyed watching his stuff because he is funny and the production quality is mucho slick. Obviously, he has many years of production under his belt and the videos that he made were phenomenal. Then he disappeared for a while.
I watched the first video today for Kajabi. Man, the hype they are pushing is kinda over-the-top, but they have already used it for four launches to date. All four launches were huge successes, too.
Anyhoo, again, go check out the first pre-launch video, it is twenty-four minutes of good looking stuff. I think that I have a bromance with the way Andy Jenkins sounds on the video. Of course, having already watched all the Video Boss series, I know how he makes himself sound like that, too.
Oh, before I forget, after many months of trying to find someone to learn from that did not sound like an utter fraud and charlatan, I happened upon Eric Holmlund at Eric's Tips. Dude, I have been going through his FREE video series and it is very informative, starts at the very beginning, and progresses nicely with action steps after every lesson. If you are even remotely interested in trying to make supplemental income online, I cannot recommend Eric's series of videos enough.
Here is Eric's first lesson. To the right of the video is the sign up thingy. You get five free e-books with your sign up. He sends one e-mail a day with the link to the lesson. If you are really studious, you can figure out the link to the next lesson and move a little more quickly. Do you see how? Yeah, I knew you would.
Remember, join my e-mail list at the top of this page, YOU. Just hit the big G-Mail icon thingy and sign up.
I am not going to make it a habit of posting internet marketing things here, by the way. I just do not have anything going on at my Wordpress site, yet and I don't have the traffic that i have here. Remember, this is a money making thingy.
Whew, I am worn out now. Back to the couch. Late.
