Hurricane Disaster Relief

August 31, 2005

Even though this has nothing to do with making money online, I wanted to let you know how you could help the Hurrican Katrina relief effort.

For those who want to help, you can donate to the Salvation Army (http://www.salvationarmyusa.org/).

I generally don’t donate to the Red Cross because of the high percentage of the donation that goes to administrative costs. They do help a lot though. So, if you prefer you can donate to the Red Cross.

Many nearby States have shelters open for people displaced from hurricane Katrina. You can donate directly to the shelters. For example, quite a few Churches in the Houston area are being used as shelters. So if you live nearby (like I do), you can also donate your time at the shelters.

This Week

August 25, 2005

I have not done much business wise this week. I spent a little time making some changes to my sales letter for my web site promotion ebook. I also updated the book in a few places and added a new section to it.

I have spent a little bit of time going through link requests this week, but other than that it’s been a very laid back week.

Next week, I hope to get back to work on my wife’s list of things to do with her business and I plan on spending some more time promoting some of my sites. I also may do some more brainstorming on new ideas for making money online. You should hear a lot more from me next week (and possibly this weekend).

Until nextime…

New Advertising Campaign

August 18, 2005

Next week I am starting a new advertising campaign for my website promotion book site. It’s a little pricey, but I think it is worth it. I may talk more about it later, but one important thing to note is that it should also help my Search Engine Rankings. This is because the site I am advertising on uses direct links to my site instead of a re-direct.

Also, I just finished doing my books for July. Doing my books is one of my least favorite tasks. Whenever I can afford it, bookeeping will be the first thing I outsource.

I have been brainstorming new business ideas and mostly what I have come up with are fairly big projects. The latest one is so big I would need help from the very start to pull it off. So for the next several months (while I focus on my wife’s websites) I am going to continue brainstorming ideas, before I weigh the pluses and minuses of each new website/business idea.

Added Drop Ship item

August 14, 2005

I just finished adding a new drop ship product on Jill and Laura’s website (http://www.delightfulchild.com/). Most of the products they sell are drop shipped. They also sell bracelets from Jill’s friend’s business. A long time ago when Jill and I were looking at drop shipping for her business we found the Drop Ship Directory and it was very useful in finding good places to drop ship from.

The thing about drop shipping I don’t like is the order taking process, and customer service. If you can markup the products by %50 or so, drop-shipping can be worth while. It’s definitely something you can earn a living online with. Some people sign up with drop shipping companies and then sell the products on eBay. However, I think buying items wholesale is better idea if you are going to sell on eBay, but there are people who make a good living selling drop shiped products on eBay.

The Delightful Child makes about 100-200 dollars per month in profits from drop shipping and about the same from Google Adsense. With the changes I am planning on making over the next couple of months I hope for those numbers to greatly increase.

For making our Adsense revenue grow, we will be adding more content. For making the drop shipping profit grow the main thing we will be doing is integrating a merchant account. Instead of only offering PayPal, we will be using PayPal’s new (and very affordable) merchant account. The only problem is that the Windows host that we are going through needs to update our Shopping Cart system to the newest version in order to work with the new PayPal merchant account. It sounds like that might not happen for a couple of months. It’s one of the down sides of going with a budget windows hosting company. They have been very good, but sometimes things don’t get done as fast you would like. If I were to do it over, I would have recommended to Jill and Laura that they sign up for SBI to host the Delightful Child.

That’s it for now. Gotta get back to making money online!

Well actually I have to go to sleep, but that doesn’t sound as good as “gotta get back to making money online”.

Making Money Online Quickly

August 10, 2005

I have decided that it would be nice to make money online quickly!

So while I am still going to focus on my wife’s business over the next several months, I am also going to brainstorm my next business move.

I know that one of the big mistakes I have made with the website promotion book is marketing it to a wide audience. I originally planned on marketing it to a much more focused audience, but then I kept expanding the audience. I think that I have learned from this mistake and I plan on having a much more focused niche for my next online business.

I do have other goals besides making money online.

In fact, my primary goal is to make money online while helping others. Some would say that helping others is the only way you can make money online. You have to offer a great value to your customer base or you will not get many people buying your product.

Anyway, I am going to be brainstorming micro-niches / nano-niches (very focused niches). Niches that you wouldn’t think could make a lot of money (but they do). I will be trying to find a niche that REALLY helps people and is of great value to a small targeted audience. It also has to be something I really enjoy doing. I also hope to have some new updates for you really soon.

Wishing you great success in your endeavors to make money online.

Internet Marketing Newsletter

August 8, 2005

Last week, Edward Gause of Trinale sent out an email to his subscriber list that said he was taking a hiatus from publishing new issues of his Internet marketing newsletter. He is doing this to focus on one of his online ventures for a while. When I saw the email, I decided to contact him about filling in for him in the interim. He and I have a similar focus (teaching beginners Internet Marketing) and I already have a monthly Internet Marketing Newsletter so I thought it would be a great oppurtunity for his subscribers to continue to get valuable information and for me to get more exposure. It’s a win-win situation. He agreed and now I will be writing his Internet Marketing Newsletter for a little while.

It is going to be a little more work writing a newsletter for him, because Trinale’s newsletter is published every 2 weeks, whereas my website marketing newsletter is only published once a month. However, his subscriber list is bigger than mine (about 2600+).

Things at work are starting to calm back down to normal, which means I should be posting more regularly by the end of this week.

Bloglet Email Subscription for Blogs

August 4, 2005

NOTE: I just edited this post, because I discovered that bloglet does not work.

I just signed this blog up for bloglet. Bloglet is an email subscription service for blogs. So now you can sign up to receive email notifications any time this blog is updated. What a really excellent service for blogs. I am surprised more services like this aren’t available. It is a great example of an excellent niche business.

Anyway, if you look under the Categories section on this blog, you will notice a box that looks like this:
—REMOVED, SINCE IT DOES NOT WORK
All you have to do is enter your email in the box and click subscribe to sign up and you will receive email notifications any time I create a new post on this blog. Pretty cool!

Well, it’s getting late so I am going to call it a night. More about making money online is coming soon…

Underground Seminar

August 4, 2005

Note: The Underground Seminar has been sold out.

I just recently received news that Yanik Silver only has 221 copies of his new Underground Seminar left.

What is the Underground Seminar ?

Yanik Silver gathered some “Underground’ insiders who are silently making big bucks online (and they would have been happy to keep it that way too…). Yanik Silver figured out a surprising way to hold them hostage and let you “SPY” on their businesses!

I currently don’t have the money to invest in the videos, but even if you don’t have much money to spend, I suggest you go sign up at to get a sneak preview of the information. Some of the video is really interesting.

Go check it out for FREE!

It looks like my 9-5 job won’t be as busy next week, so I should have time to write some of the posts I have been wanting to write. Later…
