Best, simplest, easiest, most straightforward...? Suggestions much appreciated!

7 replies
Hello, I wonder if you can possibly spare the time to give me some independent advice.

I'm a young 70, brain as good if not better than it has ever been, physically inhibited to an extent in that I have relatively mild ME/CFS and so energy supply is limited; therefore I can't camp out at the computer 24/7.

Am good at logic, and know the basics of computer-land, but otherwise can be a bit of a techie eejit; therefore long sales letters, computer-speak and so on are to some extent lost on me.

I can write (and talk), but not at any great length given my condition and not quickly (writing).

In this context I wonder if anyone can suggest how - if at all - I might be able to make some money online without, as I say, spending hours on end at the PC, or having to get involved with all manner of programmes, vehicles and so on.

I'm not seeking riches (although that would be nice, of course), simply a reasonable income, whatever that is!

Any and all ideas much appreciated, specially without agenda and in simple language

Thank you!

    First, Do you have any budget and how much is your risk tolerance? How much income are you looking for? $10 - $100 / day ?

    If you have then you can create a website / blog on a profitable niche and drive traffic to it.

    You can write 1k - 2k article twice a week (which should not take 1 whole day to create) and do some SEO work on it. While waiting for the SEO to kick in you can send traffic to your website using facebook ads.

    Just make sure that you have some offers in place before using facebook ads.

    It's very straight forward for me and easy.

    ennnceee,

    Lets start with this. you have had a full life. you have had many experiences. there are things you have passion for, there are things you like, and there are things you found to be a waste of time.

    I would look at this potential process this way. You have experiences and knowledge that sorry to say only time can offer. You HAVE what many don't. ( at 46 I would with out question say you have more to offer than I ) So the idea here is to come up with a path and a topic you have a working interest and knowledge in.

    What did you do for a living? what have been your hobbies? Basically where does your personal experience on a topic come from and what is it?

    Lets start with small steps and work our way into a business model for you.

    Good Morning ennnceee,

    It depends on many factors:

    1. Startup Capital
    2. Technical Skills
    3. IM Knowledge
    4. General Knowledge & Experience
    5. Available Time
    6. Determination to Succeed
    7. Intelligence
    8. Facility to Grasp New Concepts
    9. Previous Careers

    Give you an example.

    Let us say that you spent 40 years working as an editor in publishing. You have a wealth of knowledge that can be leveraged into a strong IM business.

    3 ideas, given your requirement of not working around the clock:

    1. Digital "How To" Products: Kindle (KDP), Click Bank, WSO.
    2. Forum Community for Writers
    3. A Blog for Writers

    In this scenario, what I would likely do is join the KDP program, write a book on how new authors can get published, using my career background to back up the book's authority, and promote that book on my own author website. The author website would be a blog fueled by traffic from social networks, where I'd be networking with my audience.

    Just an example of how this might work.

    Regards,

    Tom

    Simplest way is to make a blog/website around the topic you really love. Write good quality content of good length (1000+ words). Write at least 5 such posts per week. Find some related products from clickbank and embed your affiliate links within your content.

    Your content will automatically start getting some traffic and make you some sales. Then you can scale it by getting traffic from paid and free sources. But as a first step make a website and add quality and unique content to it.

    If you're open to a business opportunity that will require less than $500
    to get started and the possibility that you'd need to learn a few basic skills
    I'd be happy to coach and mentor you... no charge for that.

    You don't have enough posts to PM me yet so just respond here and we'll
    find a way to get together.
