Can You Make Money Online in Today’s Tough Economy?

Is it possible to make money online in today’s tumbling economy?  Not only can you make money, you can make a LOT of money.  While the corporate and small business world is scrambling to stay afloat, the home business market is booming.


It’s really quite simple.  More and more, people are beginning to realize that they cannot depend on a regular JOB.  If they are ever going to be financially free, they MUST work for themselves in their OWN business.

Why a home-based business?  Because of the low startup cost and low overhead.  Almost ANYBODY can own and operate their own home business.  The key is to find the RIGHT business for what they want to do and what the market is wanting.

But the economy is bad right now.  Is this a good time to start a home business?

Not only is it a good time, it is the BEST time to start a home business.  Once again, that is if you’re in the RIGHT business.  You have to be in a business that is selling what people WANT or NEED.

While there are a LOT of different options out there for a home business, one niche that has traditionally done very well during economically challenging times is travel for vacations.

I know this sound odd, but, the truth is people are willing to spend money to “get away” from the pressures of their normal lives. The only problem is … and this is not really a “problem” as much as an “opportunity” for a vacation-related business … is that they have less money to spend, so they’re actively LOOKING for ways to save.

This is why I have joined a vacation club. Not only am I saving thousands on vacations for myself and my family, but it’s also a business where I get paid when others join.

It’s a win-win arrangement all around.

So don’t let the news about the economy keep you from your dreams.  Decide to take matters into you own hands and start your own home business.

Why Use the Internet for a Home Business?

A lot of people are looking for a legitimate home business to earn some extra income. Some are turning to traditional network marketing opportunities, while others are turning to the internet. Which is better?

There are strengths and drawbacks to both business models. For most people, however, the chance of achieving real success weighs heavily toward using the internet. For one thing, the failure rate for tradition network marketing companies is near 97%. Plus most people simply don’t want to chase after family and friends, which is a typical network marketing strategy, to build their business.

Marketing on the internet, on the other hand, not only avoids jeopardizing your relationships through pursuing family and friends, but it literally opens up your market to millions of people who are LOOKING for the kind of opportunity you’re offering. Join this with the value offered through an online business like MyInternetBusiness and the odds of making some REAL money is significantly increased, especially if you join with a team who is committed to training you and giving the tools you need to succeed.

So given the two ways of making extra money through a home business, the internet and companies like MyInternetBusiness are the clear favorite.

MyInternetBusiness Press Release for Home Computer Work

United States of America (Press Release) June 3, 2008 — The internet marketing community is buzzing over the recent release of Darren Gaudry’s release of MyInternetBusiness for home computer work, which has been heralded by many experts to be ‘the most highly-anticipated launch since Google’. Today we interviewed Tim Wright, a Platinum-level member of MyInternetBusiness and part of the WrightMentors training team.

Prior to its launch, few actual details were known about MyInternetBusienss. Mr. Wright commented that ‘Most people realize that a lot of people have become millionaires through internet marketing, but very few actually believe that THEY themselves are capable of it. MyInternetBusiness is a high-tech, multi-media training system that is designed to provide people with the tools, the software, the mentoring and, most importantly, the Mindset that will allow them to achieve massive wealth working online; something that the majority of internet marketers fail to achieve.’

When asked about the products in MyInternetBusiness, Mr. Wright explained, "Each of the four different levels of ownership within MyInternetBusiness come with their own products, which include Digital products, an exclusive travel club, the NetMillionaire audios, as well as physical products. The digital products include a hugh portfolio of premium internet marketing software selections and a library of educational e-books that teach users, step-by-step, all aspects of the internet marketing industry. The sheer volume of selection is ideal for both novices and veterans alike.’

We then asked Mr. Wright about the physical products, and learned that his personal favorite is the The Net Millionaire Training System , a unique board game/training package which encourages the users to have fun while learning about online wealth-building strategies. ‘We all know that making money is fun,’ Mr. Wright said laughing, ‘This product lets you have fun while you’re LEARNING HOW to make money . It’s a great way to learn for the whole family. It’s similar to Robert Kiyosaki’s popular Cash Flow Quadrant game where you’re having fun but, without even realizing it, you’re also getting a million dollar education.’
The list of exclusive products offered by MyInternetBusiness is being added to almost daily. At the Platinum level, members have access and resale rights to approximately $65,000 worth of products, many of which are exclusive to MyInternetBusiness and unobtainable anywhere else.

Commenting on the video-tutorials and live trainings that are available through the MyInternetBusiness back office, Wright stated, ‘Darren Gaudry and his team have tried to make this system as foolproof as possible. All the tools you could want are included…but it’s critical to have someone who knows how to use these tools to walk you through the process and teach you how to use them. That’s where the WrightMentors training team comes in.’

The WrightMentors training team is a group of top-earners and leaders who provide free training and marketing services to their members. Mr. Wright revealed that they provide a variety of training resources including professionally-designed webpages, email campaigns and even closing services. ‘Yes, we will actually call our members’ interested prospects to close the sale and get them started.’ MyInternetBusiness also provides closing services through professional assistants specifically trained to close sales for members.

‘One of the main things,’ explained Wright, ‘is helping our members to develop Daily Methods of Operation that walk them through step-by-step what actions to do each day to succeed in their business.’

Mr. Wright emphasized in closing, ‘While MyInternetBusiness is an incredibly powerful multi-revenue business opportunity, you need to make sure that you join with an experienced mentoring team like ours that will take the time to make sure you are successful.’

Top Ten Tips to Build Your Opt In List

If you’ve been trying to make money on the internet for any time at all, no doubt you’ve heard the phrase, “The money’s in the list.” The “list” is a collection of names and email addresses from people who have “opted in” to your website to get more information about your product or service or to get something free that you’ve offered them in exchange for entering their information into the opt in form. Building your own list is one of the fundamental keys to successfully marketing on the internet … period.

There are a number of effective ways to build your list. Some are more effective than others. The main thing is that you have a strategy and a system that makes building your list a priority within your overall online business plan.

It’s important to remember that building your list will take some time. But, while it doesn’t usually happen overnight, you can build your list to a healthy size relatively quickly with a little effort, a good strategy and a system in place.

The mistake that most people make is that they jump straight into their sales presentation before trying to capture their visitor’s information. This is not only a mistake … it is a HUGE mistake.

Most people, as I’m sure you’ve heard many, many times before, only respond to a sales presentation after they’ve been exposed to it at least six times. I’m not sure why this is. Maybe it’s a trust factor. Maybe it’s just that most of us take a long time to make up our minds. But whatever the reason, it’s important. If you only have one “shot” at making a sale when a visitor comes to your website, chances are you will never hear from him or her again. If you can convince them to give you their name and email, however, you have a good opportunity to build a relationship with them (trust) and present your offer to them MANY times over the course of time.

I’m assuming here that you already know what an autoresponder is and how it works. Basically, an autoresponder is a program or service that sends out pre-written email messages to people who join your “list.” For more information, visit aweber.com or one of the other autoresponder services on the web.

So what are some strategies and methods to build your own list? Here are ten techniques, in no particular order of importance, that have been effective for me and many others in building an email list.

1 – Offer a Free Newsletter –­ Offering a free newsletter to people who visit your website is one of the most common, as well as one of the most effective ways to build an opt-in list. Since it’s free, more people are more likely to subscribe. This is one of the best tools for building a trusting relationship with your list.

Make sure your newsletter provides real value to your readers. Don’t just blast them over and over with a barrage of sales pitches. If you do, you’ll have a lot of people hitting the “unsubscribe” button after the first few emails. Pack your newsletter full of useful information. Offer free resources, tips, tools, and anything else your subscriber list might be interested in. Also, be sure to make it fun and add your own personality to it. When you do this, your subscribers will begin to look forward to your messages and get to know you (and trust you) at the same time.

2 – Include Quality Content – The quality and relevance of the content on your website is probably one of the MOST important factors in getting people to visit and, subsequently, to opt-in to your newsletter or request form. If your content is good enough, other websites will begin linking to your site as a resource, which will drive even more traffic to your site and boost your rankings in the search engines. Eventually, this begins to grow exponentially, helping your list to grow into a virtual money-making machine as you are viewed by more and more people as an “expert.”

3 – Blog – Blogging has become one of the most popular and effective ways to drive people to your website. For one thing, the search engine spiders absolutely LOVE blogs. Every time you post, the search engines view this as “fresh” content and will revisit your blog, thus helping to boost your ranking. You can either have links on your blog back to your main website or even include an opt-in form right on the blog. This blog is an example.

4 – Write Articles – Writing and submitting articles helps to establish you as an “expert” in your field, which, in turn, increases your credibility and the likelihood of readers visiting your website and opting in to your newsletter or request form. Plus, when your articles are published, you will have incoming links to your site which helps to boost your rankings with the search engines.

Make sure the articles you write are offering real value to your readers. Do your research and check your spelling. You should submit your articles to a variety of article directories and ezines.

Writing articles is probably one of the fastest and most effective ways to get quality visitors to your website and subscribers to your list. If your article is good, other webmasters will post it on their own websites giving you even more exposure. The “resource box” at the bottom of your article provides readers with information about you and how to contact you (i.e., your website).

5 – Post on Forums – Forums and topic-specific discussion boards are sites where people gather to discuss issues, to ask questions and to get one-on-one help from other forum members. Most forums offer a relatively high level of interaction among the members, which translates into a high level of trust.

When posting to forums, make sure that you actually contribute to the conversation and don’t just drop in a quick sales pitch. The verbal wrath of an active forum can resemble a violent shark feeding frenzy if members suspect that you’re crashing their board just to try to sell them something. Ultimately, you’ll end up doing more harm than good. Spend some time giving before trying to pitch anything. Usually a simple tag in your signature is enough to get visitors, especially if your contributions to the forum offer real value.

6 – Keep It Simple and Easy -­ To get people to sign up for your newsletter or request form, it has to be a simple and easy process. First of all, make sure the form is easy to find on your website and easy to fill out. The opt in form should be at or near the top of the page or in one of the side margins. Don’t bury it too deep in the copy, although you can actually have multiple forms throughout.

Don’t ask for too much information. The minimum you need is a name and email address. Sometimes you can ask for an optional phone number, but just be aware that most people either won’t give it to you or will give you a fake one. Don’t get bogged down with asking for an address, city, state, etc. Most simply won’t fill it out and you’ll lose them.

Put a quick sentence or two near the top of your form telling people why your newsletter or request form would benefit them (i.e. freebies, access to resources, tips, tools, etc.) The more “ethical bribes” you can offer, the better your chances that people will give you their information.

7 – Write an E-book –­ Writing an e-book is much easier to do than most people realize and it is an INCREDIBLY powerful way to build your list. You can even hire a freelance writer through a service like E-lance to do it for you for very little. Internet marketers are constantly looking for freebies to give away on their websites as a bonus for purchases or to entice people to sign up to their own lists. An e-book is a great way for you to build your own list by letting other internet marketers give it away.

Your e-book doesn’t have to be anything elaborate. It could be collection of your best articles, tips for running a business or a list of motivational ideas you write down during an afternoon at the bookstore. The key is to include links to your own newsletter subscription and website in content of the e-book. You then give it away for free and watch it explode into a viral list building machine for your business.

8 – Write a Press Release – Press releases are relatively easy to do and can be free or very inexpensive to release to the general public. They can literally be about anything having to do with you or your business. The best thing is to look at some examples on Google and copy their general layout and format.

Do a short press release announcing your website. Talk about the topic of your website and maybe even give examples of some of the content that visitors will find when they come to your site. If nothing else, you will have some curiosity seekers stopping by to see what all the fuss is about.

9 – Build a Squidoo Lens – Squidoo is one of the most popular and most powerful social networking sites on the web. It is similar in many ways to blogging and some of the other social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace, but offers a much more in-depth format for internet marketers. It is also extremely popular with search engines and is a great way to get more visitors to your website.

There are a number of helpful resources showing you how to effectively use Squidoo. The best thing is to open an account and jump in. You can play around and get everything just the way you want it before you actually “publish.” Be sure to add links to your website and opt-in pages.

10 – Email Marketing – The tried and true road to building a list is to send mail to other lists already in existence. There are hundreds of webmasters with huge lists of subscribers interested in the same types of things that you’re marketing. Subscribers in one list are more likely to join another.

There is a huge offering of free “safelists” where subscribers agree to receive your email in exchange for permission to send you theirs. There are also a number of very inexpensive paid lists that will send your offer to there members for a small fee. If you go this route, make sure your offer is enticing enough to get them to visit your site or to join your newsletter or request form.

So there you have ten of the top methods and strategies to build your opt-in list. Putting these tips into practice as soon as possible will yield dramatic results in building your list and increasing your online profits.

Happy building.

Personal Message From Darren Gaudry of MyInternetBusiness

The founder and president of MyInternetBusiness, Darren Gaudry, has sent out a personal message for people interested in joining him in his latest internet venture.  It looks like he enjoys what he’s doing.  Hope you enjoy the video.


This is a business that can give you the same kind of freedom that Darren Gaudry enjoys. If you’re looking for that kind of freedom and independence, check out MyInternetBusiness.

MyInternetBusiness Helps “Normal” People Make Money Online

Darren Gaudry’s release of his newest online business opportunity, MyInternetBusiness, is helping "normal" people make money online in record time and with minimal investment.

Launched in early April, MyInternetBusiness, is Gaudry’s answer to the "2-up" system that helped produce millions for him and his followers.  Unlike the previous compensation structure, there are no "qualifying sales" in MyInternetBusiness.  Instead, webpreneures joining this program are paid very generous commissions from the start.

Touting four different levels, the cost of joining MyInternetBusiness runs from $495 for the Bronze membership up to $2995 for the Platinum level.  Commissions for each run from $300 per sale up to $2000, depending on the package sold.

In addition to a healthy compensation plan and lucrative business model, MyInternetBusiness offers an impressive portfolio of products that significantly boost the value of the program.  Packages include both digital and physical products, many of which include master resell rights.  The content is a virtual powerhouse of internet marketing tools, training and money-making products.

Another huge benefit embedded in the MyInternetBusiness back office is a comprehensive marketing training module.  The system is rich in content and addresses both those brand new to the internet and marketing veterans. Plus, there are modules covering online and offline marketing techniques and strategies with step-by-step instructions and resources.

For those who are too busy or simply prefer not to talk with prospects directly, the program has an integrated followup system where professional business assistants will call your leads and help bring them into the business for you.  These "PBA’s" are professionally-trained sales representatives who can explain the details of MyInternetBusiness and show the value of joining the program.

There is much more to MyInternetBusiness that could be explored. All in all, this is one of the best home-based business opportunities I’ve seen for helping "normal" people to make money online.


New SpiderWebMarketing System 2.0 Launched

Founder and creator Kimball Roundgood recently launched the newest version of his SpiderWeb Marketing System through a worldwide webinar this week, causing quite a buzz around cyberspace.

The completely "FREE" system includes over 22 potential streams of income and, because of it’s zero-cost setup, is gaining popularity very quickly.  Just scanning the internet, it’s amazing how many netpreneures are jumping on board.  The webinar that I attended was packed by cyber-marketers wanting to find out more.

While the 2.0 version of the SpiderWeb Marketing System is still in Beta – which means a few glitches are still being worked out – the system itself seems quite solid. The site offers a "dynamic compression" structure that automatically loads affiliate id’s into each member’s site, guaranteeing that, when visitors are filling out their own systems, that the member’s links are being clicked on.  If someone opts not to join a particular program, the affiliate links from the "upline" member is automatically inserted.

This seems to be the latest and most technically-advanced offering of the "funded proposal" systems that have been successful for online marketers.  Even if a member decides not to pay for any of the services, his placement within the system offers him or her a strong opportunity to earn residual income from the affiliate links embedded within the program.

All in all, this looks like it’s going to be an extremely successful and profitable venture for all concerned.  Hats off to Roundgood and his team for making this available to the average Joe.
