Make Money Internet Tip: Blow Their Socks Off Online and Offline!

Perhaps one of the complaints I have with most internet marketing sites is that they all have a typical look. They say the same things with a similar font, and highlighter. It’s almost like there is some mediocre web designer somewhere who is making a killing!

At the height of the first internet craze while business fundamentals where tossed to the wind, companies were certainly innovative. Ideas were the currency, and a great idea – long before execution, could make you millions. It wasn’t ok to simply have a site, you had to stand out. Sure they had more sizzle than substance but now we have some stuff under the hood but little “Wow!” factor.

I challenge you to step away from the computer, quite trying to duplicate someone’s success story. It’s great to know that such success is possible and the methods and best practices of those who did it, but chart your own path! I bet a few readers would rather lead the pack than simply join it.

With so many sites and tons of content, simply being another site hoping to share a part of the money pot is - boring. If you are going to put in the effort – why not do something outstanding. Let me take a few steps back. It’s important to take baby steps when you are starting, and those steps may not be innovative or ground breaking, but let your vision be out of this world.

Walt Disney was very non-traditional in his thinking. Many business geniuses are ridiculed early in their carets. The press doubted the potential of Disneyland – they called it “Disney’s Folly”.

If you have a crazy idea that you dare to share – expect some ridicule. Imagine telling family and friends that you are going to start an internet business where you give everything away free. That’s right, free. That’s what a small company called Hotmail set out to do with their email platform. They were first, they were free - And there isn’t anyone reading this article who doesn’t know someone with a Hotmail account or at least heard of it.

Hotmail understood what would be outstanding in the late nineties. Take a service that people pay for, improve upon it and give it away free. They sell ads on the site, so many that Microsoft decided to get in the action and rather than compete, simply bought them out and repackaged it as we now know it.

The “find what people are paying for on the Internet and give it away free” concept is still good, but to be wildly successful you may need something more. What would that be? That’s the million dollar question, rather if you come up with the answer you may stand a chance of turning that idea into a few zeros!

Having said all this, you have to start somewhere – even better, start with someone who has show some success, so find a mentor who has shown some success, so find a mentor and learn the ropes. Then jump in the ring with the intention of scoring a knockout!

Getting Paid By the Casinos to Play

Here are some simple steps on how to get the freebies casinos offer their players.

The forward approach will work well in this situation. This is where you call the casinos and ask them what they will offer you to come to their casino to do some gambling. In most cases the casinos may offer you some free meals and maybe even a show. If you call and tell them you are bringing a group of people to their casinos they may even go as far as to give you a suite for yourself and give a break on the other rooms for your trip.

A variation of the forward approach is to call a casino and get them to give you a comp then call all the other casinos and see if they will match or beat the other casinos offer. If you can convince them you are worth them bringing you to their casino they may just try to outbid the previous casino, and if they really want you they may pick you up from your home or the airport depending on where you live in a limo and convince them you are a high roller in the casinos a…

 Affiliates are getting cleverer by the day. So these days, affiliates know the difference between the different types of traffic they can get paid for. There are a lot of definitions though – CPM, CPC, CPA, CPL, CPD and many more.

Five Tips for Making Money from Home During the Pandemic?

TORONTO -- Even in the midst of a pandemic and near-shutdown of the economy, there are ways to improve your financial standing.

Financial coach David Lester appeared on CTV's Your Morning Thursday, to offer five suggestions of ways anyone can make money right now, even from home.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left a lot of people in a position where they're spending a lot more time at home.
That may mean more time for pursuing passions and exploring pastimes – something Lester said a savvy hobbyist can try to monetize.
"If there are any skills that you have – if you're an amazing chef, if you're great at decorating, whatever you can do from home – you can sell Zoom lessons," he said.
It may sound counter-intuitive, but Lester sees now as a good time to start a new business.
The key, he said, is that coronavirus-induced changes to society will require new products and services. This creates opportunities for anyone who can see a niche need coming, whether it be in onlin…
