You Guide to $100 a day Online – Part 1

Step 1: Pick a Money Niche

Without the right niche, you’re not going to be making anything, much less $100 a day.

But forget the whole slimy process of looking for one specific keyword that has just the right measure of traffic and the least amount of competition.

You may want $100 a day, but your next goal will be to multiply that into something more, right?

That means you’ll need to have a niche you enjoy working in – and personal satisfaction also translates into more money – more so than keyword volume and competition stats do.

How To Know If Internet Marketing Is For You

Before you get started in this industry, you have to analyze your own mindset to see if you have what it takes to be an online entrepreneur from conception to fully-functional success operation.  It’s not enough to say you want to make money or be your own boss.

Everyone wants those things, but not everyone can achieve those goals.

It takes a special person.

You don’t have to be a workaholic or be willing to engage in questionable marketing tactics.  You just need to have a few characteristics that are common to most successful Internet marketers.

The Many Shades Of Internet Marketing


There’s no PhD you can strive for to be in the Internet marketing industry. You have to learn as you go – on your own – soaking up information along the way.

The first thing you need to know is what it means to be an Internet marketer, because it isn’t always clear to everyone.

Let’s start with what Internet marketing is not.  It’s not being a con artist. It’s not being a spam king.  It doesn’t just mean selling on eBay or having your own website and products.

In reality, Internet marketers can pick and choose from a whole host of options available to help them make money.  Your opportunities are virtually endless, and include one or more of the following:

Watch Me Create My Product!

…and create yours at the same time!

I know, just as well as you do, that the real key to a successful long-term online business is having your own assets.

Nothing that Google can snatch away at whim.

Nothing that is subject to changes beyond your control.

Something that you own!

And the “passive income” allure of bringing in sales while you sleep is nothing to sneeze about either, right? 🙂

So now that we know why I am creating my own product, I want to share with you a great idea that I had:

Beware: Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?

Do you believe that you can make money online?

I didn’t ask if you want to make money online – because we already established that you do. I was questioning your belief system.

If you stop and give it some thought, you might realize that although you may wish with all your heart that the money was already rolling in, in truth, you may harbor some real self-doubts about ever fulfilling your dream.

Why is that?

                                             Whether you’re trying to make money, lose weight, get married, have children, or overcome any obstacle in life,  you have to remember the power you hold in your own hands that will shape your future. 

Perhaps you are absorbing the message from family members and friends who do not support your dream?

How I Make My Own Images For Free

… and in ten seconds flat, to boot.

We all know that including images into your posts or articles make for a much more reader-friendly experience.

One of the reasons I haven’t been posting as much as I should have is because I find it a pain to look for images.

And I’m not really ready to pay for photos.

I want free ones.

Yes, there are a couple of resources to obtain images for free, and I have duly checked those out.

But I found myself spending too much time browsing through the pictures until I would find one that I liked, only to discover, upon downloading, that I had to give attribution to the owner.

How to Turn Your Photo Into a Cartoon for Free

I’m going to share with you today a little-known resource for making all kinds of cool effects with your photo.

I’ve been toying with the idea of getting someone on fiverr to make me a cartoon character so I can put it on my blog.

Then I decided I’ll try to do it for free.

Who knows – maybe all the fiverr guys are using this tool too? 🙂

It actually doesn’t even have to be a photo of a person; it can be any picture or image.

Some suggested uses:

-Turn a real photo into a black and white pencil sketch.

Market like a Missile

This is something I don’t recommend you try yourself. The message though, is a sound one, definitely worth taking to heart, so I decided to talk about it here on my blog.

I’m referring to John Chow’s latest video in his series that he calls “Driving with John Chow.” I just chanced upon it today, and he’s already up to episode #30, so I imagine he’s got lots of other interesting tidbits on the other ones.

Don’t try this at home (or in the car!)

He records his video while driving in his open convertible. While I’ll admit that it adds to the coolness factor, I spent most of my viewing time worrying about his road safety, as well as the safety of his daughter Sally, who seems determined to distract her father (and maybe grab some of the attention for herself?).

How to Add an Opt-In Form for Your Blog


In my last post I mentioned how excited I was to have an opt-in form on my blog, and how easy it was. I also mentioned how to NOT go about creating an opt-in form.

Apparently, that’s not helpful enough for anyone looking to actually create one!

So here we go – How to add an opt-in form for your blog:

(1) Assuming you have an Aweber account (or similar autoresponder system), click on “Sign-up Form” then “Create a Sign Up Form.

(2)Start by choosing a template (basic is fine; don’t forget, you only need the two lines where your future subscribers will input their name and email address).

My Foray, Part 2

Week 3 almost passed me by without an update! That’s what happens when writing a post is not on the list of homework, I guess. I’m going to have to put it into my to-do list by myself.

This week involved setting up a free report, a squeeze page, and a thank-you page and uploading them to my server, as well as creating an opt-in form for  my sidebar.

The instructions were pretty clear, and since I already had filezilla, kompozer, and aweber, it went without a hitch, thank goodness.

What I learned that I didn’t know before:
