What is the IM way of making money that is more zen..

27 replies
He,

I did a lot of freelancing, consulting about webdesign and marketing but i'm now looking to do something zen, you know meaning simple, repetitive, no headache, just things to do again and again..

I have a lot of experience with computer, can do mostly anything but i don't want to handle clients anymore..

I was thinking about a blog that review the wso and other tools for marketers that i would be monetizing with affiliate link but i'm open to suggestion before i go full blast in.

so any suggestion ?

thanks guy

    Why not? Here's an additional idea. You should submit here or somewhere else your first test blog. Just to see what kind of a response you can expect. This can be a great way to get some feedback about your blog. You mentioned that is intended for marketers in the first place. Right? So, why not? Good luck!

    Sounds like a great idea.

    I heard about someone before that actually created a membership site about testing WSO's and sharing his results.

    Could be very profitable.

    Hmm, what you're proposing doesn't sound very repetitive, to me at least, since you would have to review different products every period. However, I would definitely go the affiliate marketing route, since once you have your funnels, email followups, and tracking all set up, you can just pay for traffic and analyze data, making a tweak here and there.... in a perfect world :-)

        Just get a job doing something like data entry.

        You don't succeed as an entrepreneur by being repetitive. You just don't. You need to constantly be trying new things, evaluating your results, and adjusting. Every day is going to bring new needs and new opportunities -- and with them new and varied tasks to accomplish. If you just do the same thing over and over again without regard to your customers you will fail. If it were that easy, people like me would just write computer programs to automate the repetitive tasks you're doing and you'd be out of business.

        Saying you want to be an entrepreneur doing simple, repetitive, "no headache" tasks is like saying you want to be a professional basketball player without having to be physically active. It sounds like you want some dream version of the entrepreneur lifestyle and not the real thing.

        P.S. If you think Zen equates to repetition, you might want to learn more about Zen.

    Hi Yvon,

    You've done a lot of consulting about web design and marketing so you must have a list of the top 5 to 10 questions people repeatedly asked you about when you were freelancing.

    Make one or more products, could be reports, could be video training etc that answer those questions and solve the problem for the questioner.

    Set up a simple opt-in page with a form where you offer to provide the answer to the enquiry.

    After they submit their question and provide their email address they get taken to a simple sales page where they can buy your solution.

    You can retarget them and also follow-up with automated emails if they don't buy.

    If you set up a filter within the form it is easy to send them to a question specific sales page where the product that matches their solution is available.

    Set up the fulfilment system and then you are pretty much set to go on autopilot.

    Then send traffic to the first page in the sequence.

    Best regards,

    Ozi

    You can create review sites and earn affiliate commissions. You can create review sites about products that you can find at ClickBank, Amazon etc. Apart from this you can create a review blog as well - a place dedicated for reviewing products - the comments on the blog can act as testimonials.

    Kindle Marketing might be good. It takes ALOT of groundwork and time to be successful, but no clients to deal with, only if you outsource some of the work. I honestly would not say this is the best way. I am doing it now and seeing small sales, so I know in a few months after I have more books up it should be autopilot income.

    Im not looking for autopilot though, but most internet marketing, website building methods are the way you are looking for I believe. Just working for yourself, thats why I do this and hustle all day.

    Having a website for IM / Make Money Online tips is also a great plan, and selling your guides on there

    What is the Meaning of Zen?
    by
    Rafael Espericueta

    The word Zen has become part of the English language, but what exactly does it mean? It’s much easier to answer the question “When is Zen?”, for that answer would have to be “Now!”. The whole point of Zen practice is to become fully aware, here and now. To come home to the present moment; this is truly where we live. Thinking verbally takes us far into the past, or into the distant future. But both past and future are fantasies, since the future isn’t known and our memories of the past are often quite distorted accounts of what really happened. Zen exhorts one to “Come to your senses!”, for when we get lost in thoughts of the past or future, life passes us by. When one mindfully dwells in the present moment, one completely dissolves into whatever activity manifests. One becomes the activity. Most people have had peak experiences, which all involve being so totally involved with life that one’s sense of separateness dissolves into the experience. Very Zen.

    The "Rinse and Repeat" formula is indeed Simple to understand.

    but requires Your Attention, not a quick rich scheme.

    Its about Building an Email List around a topic you choose, then provide value, then advertise high quality products you trust and you tested before.

    Building an Email List requires TRAFFIC: and there are lot of ways to have it, which divides in 2 branches, FREE and PAYED traffic.

    Go for payed traffic, without any investement there's no business at all.

    So build you List!

    Have you considered a career in the fast food service industry? It is perfectly Zen - "simple, repetitive, no headache, just things to do again and again"!

    I think for zen you would be better off picking a topic you enjoy and blogging about it.

    This way you can spend your time on the computer--writing about what you like.

    Of course, you would or could monetize it with adsense or affiliate programs.

    I think to achieve anything 'zen-like' you should give up IM. altogether. Let's be serious. lol
