Some Helpful Advice for those who want attention… April 13, 2012

Seems like everyone today has an online presence.  Grandmothers are monetizing home video of their precious little poo-poos on youtube.  Housewives are selling crafts, kitchen products, and uh…whatever through web sites.  Toddlers are sending out social commentary on twitter.  Good Heavens!!  Who has time to read it all?  No one, that’s who.

If you are one of the millions who are running madly across the virtual landscape in some kind of cyber land-rush frenzy to stake your claim on a piece of binary property and communicate your way to millions in easy riches, I have some advice for you.  In a word, CONTENT.  Fresh stuff…(oops that’s two words).  It doesn’t really matter what you are producing.  It doesn’t really matter if its worth watching/listening to/viewing.  What matters is that you create new stuff and post it regularly.  (Yes I AM a hypocrite, now pay attention). 

The latest word from the Bureau of Nosy Statistics is that if you don’t have fresh content at least daily, your online presence will fizzle.  People visit a web site, if they like it they book mark it, and if, on their second or third visit, they don’t see fresh material, they never come back.  Some simple math for the simple among us… No People = No Money.  The Internet has been described as an information super highway.  It is more accurate to say it is a huge information vacuum.  Try this experiment.  Go to a major news portal like Fox or Yahoo or MSN or some other big-time page.  Read an article.  Take some text from that article, search for that exact text in google and see how many other sites are using the exact same article, word for word.  Sometimes they acknowledge the source and sometimes not.  Everyone wants fresh content but no one has time to write it.  If you can come up with something fresh, even a little original, and interesting/entertaining/useful/controversial then you CAN make money on the Internet.  When I have time to write again (after counting all my online millions that I make working for google as an unwed mother) I will give you a fairly clear path to follow to online promotion success.  Til then…Have you heard the latest about Lindsey Lohan??

How To REALLY Get Rich on the Internet. April 19, 2010

Do All Those Unwed Mothers REALLY Make $4543.00 per Week From Google?

In a word, No, they don’t.  If you’ve seen the ads scattered across your favorite web portals concerning some average person off the street making an incredible salary working for Google, you are not alone.  Remember what I said a few posts back about content.  The path to making money on the Internet is creating content of some kind.  The people responsible for that ad campaign need content to attract traffic to their site in order to sell their “get rich quick” scheme.  The money isn’t being made by the unwed mother of 4 working for google.  The money is being made by google selling ad sense or some other tool or service to “help” people make money.  Today what makes money is not the scheme itself, but selling the scheme.  In order to get people interested you need some sort of content.  Blogs and forums and social networking sites were created in order to make money, not for the people using the site, but for the people selling the scheme.

A similar phenomenon can be seen in the recent proliferation of classes offering training in everything from buying and selling Real Estate and stocks to finding riches  trading old toys on eBay.  The people teaching the class may very well have made money flipping a house or selling options but what makes them successful is that they also learned very quickly that it is MUCH easier to make more money selling expensive classes and training materials to that section of the American populace that is eternally optimistic.  Face it folks, the scheme they are selling does not work as advtertised.  If it did, the stock market, which operates on volume, would be pushing 20,000 now instead of fighting its way back to 10,000.  SELLING the scheme, however, is making a bundle because people have an almost innate desire to believe that they can get something for nothing.  Couple that with how easy it is to reach the entire world through the Internet and you have a perfect market place.  Add a little interesting content to pull people to your site and POW!!  Dinner is served.

Please be aware that I am not being cynical in my observation.  I am stating fact.  People want to find a way to succeed in life by some other means than hard work.  It takes a loonng time to make money that way.  If you can find some way to generate income that does not require your direct participation or constant attention then you are very far along the road to success.  Content creation and promotion is the key here.  If the content on Facebook and MySpace were not so fascinating you can be sure that all the little ads along the borders of the pages would not be there.  If YouTube.com were not so popular (because of its content) they would not have any of the huge marketing deals that they have been able to put together.  People don’t get rich selling on eBay but eBay is REALLY getting rich from all the auction fees, add-ons, and training classes they offer.

Here is the short and simple…If you want to make money on the Internet, or anywhere in life for that matter, then you need to do two things.  1) Find a simple way to lead other people to believe that they can make money doing something.  It must come close to making logical sense and it must be easy to follow.  It does NOT have to work.  2)Find a way to tell MANY people about it.  If you tell 100 people, the odds that even one will buy in are very small.  If you can tell 1 million people, and only 3% buy in and you can sell your scheme to them for $10 you have made $30,000.  Almost everyone has $10 that they are willing to part with and an ad campaign that only gets a 3% return is pretty common and getting a million hits on any Internet site is not hard if you have some kind of content to draw them.  I would be interested to see what people think about this idea.  Please, if you read this, leave a comment.  Have a great night.
