Right Im gunna tell you all how I have made money online.. But first you need to know why I didnt make any money online for a long time !
Ok, so heres me.. over a year ago and broke ( big time ).. I started to look for ways to make money, initially this was off line.
Mailing catalogues, betting systems, pretty much anything !
Yes you guessed it I lost money not made money...
Now just over a year ago I discovered people were making money online,
Great !! This looks simple
So I bought the first product I found - Chris Mcneeney's Day job killer ebook. Firstly let me say that looking back with the little knowledge I now have that book was very good but my lack of experience at the time left me lost.
So I blamed the book and went on to the next ebook, then I bought into another paid system, then into the stock market.. blah blah
Probably sounds all too familiar to many of you ???
Theres was one time I blew hundreds and HUNDREDS of dollars trying Google adwords.. YEAH.. I made my first ever sale !! But that $40 commission cost about $600 if I remember right LOL
So thats been me for well over a year, until just a few months back when I went to my first seminar. It was for 3 days and appart from the many great people that I met the highlight of the weekend was meeting Alex Jeffreys of Post launch profits.
This guy quite literally changed it all for me !!
So as we were about to leave that seminar I says to Alex ..
"Dude Im broke I need your help, what should I go home and do ?"
At that point he tells me to do something I have never even looked into, and this is what he tells me...
"Dude .. You gotta get yourself a blog setup"... "You just have to man, thats the way the internet is moving..."
That was it for me.. That guy makes about $20,000 every month so its about time I did something right and listened to what he told me. So when I got home the very next day I got onto wordpress.com and started me a blog !!
Well that was, that as they say.. The rest is history
My blog has been running for about 10 weeks now, receives between 88 - 436 visits per day and has made me over $3,000 to date.
So .. That help was given to me, now I want to tell anyone in that same position exactly what I have done to get to this point.
Here goes ....
1 - Started a blog on www.wordpress.com . Obviously this was on wordpresses hosting so I didnt own the blog ( Although I didnt know this at the time ).
2 - I purchased my domain. My domain is my name as I was advised to get ( DeanHolland.com )
3 - Posted my first post on my blog, told the world who I was and the situation I was in and where I WANTED to be - Dean Holland Presents … Blog Archive My First Blog Post !
4 - then realising what I had done by setting up on wordpress.com I knew I needed to get my own hosting for my blog. I bought hosting with hostgator and transfered what I had done onto my hosting. I also installed analytics to monitor traffic
5 - All the while I continued posting on my blog, telling the world every step I took in building my online business
6 - Alex Jeffreys contacted me to see how I was getting on and to check if I had listened to him. when he saw what I had done he was that impressed with me that he featured me in an ebook he was about to release. A free ebook called gurus Dream - www.Gurusdream.com
7 - I began putting myself out there on the internet using social media. I found other blogs in the IM niche and began taking part on them, getting into the conversations building backlinks to my blog. I joined forums but give my main focus here !!
8 - I put up on my blog my first affiliate promotion, this was for Alex Jeffreys coaching program. Commissions for each sale were $250 ... I made $1729 profit.. Yes I couldnt believe it !! Amazing
8 - I began writing my first ebook - The blog setup guide. This is a step by step guide to building and getting a blog online from scratch exactly as I had done.
9 - My ebook was finished !! I put this ebook up on my blog and I give it away for free
To date after about 4 weeks I have built an email list of around 500 using my blog. Feedback on my book was insanly great, people began building blogs and writting about me and my book !!
I now continue posting on my blog and taking part in social media over the internet every single day.. I spend around 4 hours a day online.
Thats really all I have done so far. Sorry I did also include a post on my blog with affiliate links to hostgator for hosting and also for Aweber autoresponder service.
It may look real easy and it is, but its not simple !! By that I mean that the procedure is easy but the ammount of work involved is HARD and takes many hours.
In the 10 weeks my blog has been online it has made me around $3300 and income continues to come.
If that helps anyone get going online then great, realise the above details are not in great detail but if you want to get going and dont know where to start grab my free ebook at my blog or search this forum.
Stop buying into products and begin building a business !
Good luck, remember not happens if nothing changes !!
