There has never been a more urgent time to find a second source of income. As a nation we are simply not earning enough, as can seen in the “Living Wage” Infographic below from KPMG.
And yet frustratingly when a newcomer attempts his or hand at making money on the internet they are met with a dazzling array of options from other marketers who may, or may not, are making an income themselves.
What doesn’t help is the perception that on-line income is easy.
I am not sure where this myth is derived from.
Is it the massive valuations that companies such as Google, Facebook and Twitter have earned in a short space of time? Or the sheer speed in a which apps, videos and viral content make their way through cyberspace? Or savvy marketers spinning a story to sell their wares?
Whatever the reason may be, the sheer array of offers, products and promises circulating online is dazzling to an extent which is bordering on the crippling.
So – is it possible to make money on-line?
Before answering I think it would be important to define making money on-line. Fortunes are made by retailers who have shifted the industry from bricks and mortar to bytes and servers. This is not what this post is about.
Specifically I am referring to the selling of Information Products on-line. Either someone else’s (affiliate) or your own (author).
So, is it possible to sell information products in this crowded, cut throat and savage marketplace?
The answer is yes, and in the following series of posts I will break down the steps, components and actions required to make money on-line into bite sized actions that can be taken by anyone regardless of budget.
