How to Create Online Income – Part 1

More and more people are looking to the Internet to make money. And sadly, 80% of them will fail miserably and never make a dime. Only 1% to 2% of them will succeed and create decent online income. The rest will make a few dollars here and there, but nothing substantial.

And what is the reason for this? It is not because creating online income is difficult. It is actually very easy, once you know how. There are thousands of ways to make money online. In this article, I will show you how to easily create online income by writing articles. In future articles, I will discuss how to create online income using other techniques.

Although most everyone can speak, not everyone considers themselves to be a great writer. But you don’t have to be a great writer to create online income writing. If there is one word of advice I can give you, it’s this; write it like you say it. Many people try to write long reports using big words thinking that it will impress others. Nahhh! Readers aren’t impressed that easily.

Most people read articles and information for one reason; they want to learn something. Readers are much more impressed by an article that teaches them exactly what they wanted, as opposed to an article full of big words that says nothing. So, KISS (‘Keep It Simple, Stupid)!

So, how can you create online income by writing? You can begin by writing articles. If you are not sure of the format, you can get tons of article writing information from the link to my website below. There are 2 ways to create online income writing articles. The easiest way is to write articles for others.

Webmasters and bloggers are always looking for fresh articles to add to their sites. And, fortunately for you, they are willing to pay for it. If you are just beginning to write articles to create online income, you might only be able to get $2.00 to $3.00 per 500 word article. However, even at that low rate, you can easily write 10 articles in a single day and earn $20 to $30 dollars for a few hours work.

To find anxious article buyers, go to the large forums like the Warrior Forum and Digital Point Forum. After registering, look for threads related to article writing. There are people looking to buy articles at these forums almost everyday. Respond to these posts and ask them to send you a pm (private message) for details on your article writing service. Once you strike a deal, start writing and begin to create online income! It’s that easy.

Blogging: Writing and Publishing Your First Blog Entry

The content of your blog is an important factor in gaining traffic and acquiring a target audience. Publishing your first article or item is a great milestone in your blogging career. Fortunately, there are several basic guidelines, which can make your content more effective to your audience, adored by the search engines and respected by the world of blogging.

Publishing an Effective Content

Before you begin to write anything on your blog, you should know who your target audience is and what they want. If you see these factors as irrelevant for your blog because your blog is not business oriented in any way, you must remember that if you want readers then these factors are really relevant.

Always remember that where there are readers there is something interesting to read. The only reason why people read is because they want something. If you really want to achieve some kind of massive readership, you must strive to make your content interesting and actually what readers want.

First of all, keep in mind that communication is the key. More so, your communication must be authentic. The time when you publish your content is also the time when you let your true self surface. Blogs are personal in nature and communication is the key to being personal. The fact that each blog is unique because each writer is unique is enough for you to not to worry about future similarities with other blog entries. Keep in mind that whatever topic you are blogging about you must incorporate your personality with your writing.

In order to create a loyal target audience, it is important for the visitors to trust you and relate to you. It does not necessarily entail that they know about your personal details but you must connect with your audience in an authentic manner.

After establishing your communication with your audience, the content must also be credible. The blog must have authenticity even though credibility takes a lot of time to build.

The moment you begin publishing your content, which is of high value and useful to the readers, you also start establishing your authority. There will come a time when your readers ask you for advice or seek for your opinion; this is the time when you have achieved some kind of credibility and you must use this to build your reputation as a blogger.

The Blogger’s Block

Blogging is writing but uses a different medium. There are several methods to fight blogger’s block. Always remember that your blog software exists to serve you and not to frighten you. You do not have to try blogging carrying the idea that you have prolific writing skills, or a journalism degree. The fact is that you have something to say and you want others to hear it. However, if you are feeling stuck on an idea, there are several suggestions that you can apply when creating the content for your blog.

Firstly, you can try visiting other blogs. Visit those blogs that interest you and pick ideas and topics from those blogs that might be worth blogging about but keep in mind the relevance of the topic and your readership. You can also syndicate your news updates. You can do this by subscribing to news services online because they allow you to save time on searching using keywords. This is most useful for bloggers.

self publishing?

can i self publish an ebook by myself and not go through a publishing website or pay anyone money? just do everything myself. please be as detailed as possible, i have no idea on how to turn my writing into an ebook and get it on the web. also, can anyone illustrate a childrens book?

Oh course if you turn it into an ebook, it will be nonprofit. Just start your own website and post it there, even simpler post it on some forums. Type the words into Microsoft Word or Adobe Reader. As for the illustrations ask a Photoshopper to do those for you, or you may do them yourself. Hope this helps.

Looking for a news story about a man who started publishing math lectures online.?

I recently saw a story about a former software engineer who quit his job and started publishing his own math oriented lectures online. I believe his name was indian, but I’m not positive.

He turned his closet into his own lecture hall where he records his lectures and publishes them online for free.

Does anyone know his website or where I can find this news story?

I saw the same news story.

His name is Salman Khan, and his website is at http://www.khanacademy.org .

Beyond Customary Ebook Publishing

Single purpose ebooks are a thing of the past, and here is why.

What’s happened to the venerable ebook?  Has it taken it’s place among other antiquated technologies of the Internet like modems and CRT monitors?  Is it a long forgotten technology?

The fact remains that writing an ebook and self publishing it on the Internet has become easier and easier. There are literally thousands of PLR (Private Label Rights) ebooks for the taking so that you don’t even have to be concerned about actually writing an ebook. Ebook software is easily accessible and a lot less expensive, and if you don’t like to write or don’t feel that you have the talent (Just about anyone can write an eBook) you can have a freelance writer do it for you, if you can afford to job it out.

That being said, why even take the time and trouble to write and publish an ebook?  There is most definitely a place for single purpose eBooks on the market today. I would categorize them as highly defined and technical information based ebooks. That is they discuss in great detail how to manage a specific task or function. A good example would be how to utilize RSS feeds on your website, and how they can become a silent marketing tool for your products or services.

Segmented marketing strategies such as technically based ebooks present a different challenge to the Internet Marketer as they require specific knowledge of a given subject to write.  So how can the average person make money with an ebook?

A good example would be to create a free give-away ebook that discusses the merits of other products that you may be selling. This is done quite often and has increased sales and conversion rates for products and services. Within the ebook you discuss the rational for the use of your product or service and create active links to your sales page.

Another method of non-traditional ebook publishing is the “branded” or viral ebook. This is when you create a similar ebook to the above example but allow your affiliates to brand it as their own ebook and distribute it to their customers. The ebook can be branded so that the sales links can be personalized for each affiliate.

Viral ebooks have been around for sometime and the software to create them is well within reach of the average Internet marketer. For example the Adobe PDF format is the worldwide standard for creating an ebook. There is no question that Adobe Acrobat® is the premiere tool for creating pdf ebooks, however there are alternatives that are less expensive that will create and convert to the pdf format. Viral PDF ebooks are very attractive because they provide an unusual way to distribute an information or software product, that is easy and inexpensive to produce.

The process is simple. Let’s say that you have a great widget making software program. You decide to write an ebook that explains all of the benefits of widgets and how they will change the world as we know it. Instead of selling this ebook you give it away with free software that creates proprietary links for anyone who joins your affiliate program. (A simple membership to either PayDotCom or Clickbank starts your first affiliate program for very little work or investment on your part) This means that your affiliates can now offer an ebook that is branded with their name and their affiliate links to anyone that they choose to send it to. This means that whenever someone purchases through those links you get a sale and the affiliate gets a commission. A win-win situation.

With the above suggestions you can easily see how an ebook still furnishes you with a marketing tool to promote your business, product or resource.

Where is Tim O’Reilly’s blog post about the cost of book publishing, especially the cost of physical printing?

I read in a forum that Tim O’Reilly wrote a blog post about publishing books, particularly where he explained that the actual cost of printing a book is a relatively small percentage of the overall cost (paying for editors, proofers, typesetters, jacket art, etc.). Where the heck is this blog post?

Is this it?
