I will teach you how to get rich in the most unconventional way. I will not explain how to create a startup, nor will I describe the rules of gambling. Instead, I want to talk you about something that is actually attainable with the right amount of motivation. I will teach you to how to get rich using only your mind and a laptop.
You have probably come across people that call themselves the internet millionaires. Maybe you thought the idea of earning income through the internet was silly, or maybe you thought it was a lie and a scam. Regardless of your personal opinion, the amount of internet millionaires today is growing exponentially. But do they seriously know something that we don’t, or are they just scamming people?
The modern age
The first thing that you have to understand is that we no longer live in the 90’s and in the early 00’s. With globalization and the improvement of the World Wide Web, aka the internet, there is no longer the need to have a physical company or even an office. Your laptop easily replaces of all of it. The possibilities of what you can do today to start earning money through the internet are literally endless. It is a matter of how well you can use your imagination.
You may be asking yourself why many people create startups instead of getting into an online business? Firstly, it is because creating a startup has also become relatively easy to do. Secondly, despite it being 2017 a large portion of the population still thinks that business must be tied to a physical location with many co-workers working in the same location. People are so stuck to their conservative beliefs that in the long run, it prevents them from growing. Finally, you must understand that amount of online business owners and marketers over the past 10 years has grown tremendously. There are tens of thousands of them. I’m not exaggerating. However by copying these people, there can be some valuable lessons learned in life.
Now some practicalities. One proven way to quickly start earning money online is through the publishing business. You heard me, through publishing books. Even though it is 2017, people still love to read books. Amazon has a so-called Kindle reader and competitors are quickly jumping on board with the idea. You can begin by publishing books digitally and then diversify the business into selling print books and even audio books. What makes Amazon extremely powerful is that if you are selling print books you don’t need to create them physically, nor do you need to find a warehouse to store them. Amazon does all of this for you, and does this “on demand”.
On demand means that Amazon prints your book only when someone actually buys it. This makes it super easy for us, publishers. It is an incredible opportunity that I personally have not missed. In terms of the writing process, you can hire a ghost-writer to help you with the process. You will simply own the rights for these books and therefore receive all the profit from them.
One step further
Once you get the feel of publishing, you can get into something bigger. You can use Amazon to sell your physical products. In case you don’t know how to do this, you can simply buy a step-by-step course. In relation to this notion, never try getting into a business you know nothing about. You will make a lot of mistakes, get tired, discouraged, and you will not last. Always find a course to go through before getting into these things. Online business can make you a millionaire faster than a traditional business will, but that doesn’t mean you can be careless in the process.
One of my favorite ways to earn money online is through affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is when you promote someone’s product and get a commission for it. With affiliate marketing you don’t need to go through the hassle of creating your own products, finding a platform to sell them on, arranging the sales and so on. All of that is already done for you by someone else. All you have to do is find products online with an affiliate program that you have either used or have heard a lot of good about, and begin promoting them. Depending on the type of contract, with each sale that you help generate, you earn a commission for yourself as well.
Affiliate marketing has made a countless amount of people millions of dollars. If this is hard to believe, just google it and see for yourself. And while you are at it, search for all possible affiliate programs. What you will notice is that so many products, including some of the most popular ones, have an affiliate program. I didn’t even know about affiliate marketing a couple of years ago, but once I began to search for it, I was shocked by the amount of existing programs.
Amazon, the secret weapon
For example, you will find that Amazon has its own affiliate program and it sells almost every known product to man. This means that when you drive people to Amazon and they end up purchasing a product you will receive a commission. The best part about it is that this includes any product they purchase within 24 hours of arriving to Amazon through your affiliate link! What is also really cool is that many of the products on the internet cost over a thousand dollars, and their commission can easily be 50% of that price. This means that from one sale of a product that costs a 1000 dollars, you would get 500 bucks! Amazing, right? Affiliate marketing is great, and people make hundreds of thousands of dollars advertising other people’s products.
The next logical question is how to drive traffic to those websites through your links. This is the part where the whole online business concept comes into place. The way you drive traffic to these websites is completely up to you. The more creative you are, the more potential for success you have.
You can become active on social networks, gain followers, and then advertise to them. This is probably the easiest way, but also the least predictable, since people are not necessarily looking to buy on social networks. On the other hand, you can create some products, such as the e-books I mentioned earlier. A customer might buy your relatively cheap book from you, see the link you added in there, and generate a commission for you three times bigger than what the book cost! Again, it is up to you to decide how you want to approach this. There really is no right or wrong answer.
Finally, you can go the hardest way, but also the way that will be the most effective. You can create your own website, publish quality content there, attract visitors, and then drive them to the desired products. By creating a website and having your own followers, you create a relationship with them from which you can both benefit. They will learn about new products and you will get a commission for introducing them. I think this is a win-win-win situation!
I will teach you how to get rich – conclusion
Becoming rich today is really not that difficult. It is nothing compared to what it was 50 or even 25 years ago. Affiliate marketing is one of the ways that has proven itself to be extremely powerful. All you have to do to get into an online business is get rid of limiting beliefs that are holding you back from success. Do some research, get motivated, and be consistent with what you do. If you keep on pushing forward no matter what, with time you will reap what you have sown. Just believe in yourself!
