Yet Freedom! Did I Live In A Crazy Junk Economy?

One question that I have seen the most with clients when they began online marketing is, “How much money do I really need to be making online?” In my experience, the answer depends entirely on yourself. In my case, I have very little to no overhead, so I have a lot of freedom as to how much time I can spend earning money, and, how much money I want to make in a year, and my business. Although the fine print often states that you will be working a few hours per week, how much I earn is more direct.

If I am doing well and start to see incredible profits quickly, I will take my business to a higher level. If I am losing money, I will start to cut back on time, sleep more efficiently, blog more, if that sends more traffic to my new site, or any number of other activities that will help me earn more.

A free website like Weebly or a free blog with a hosting service will work well for me. I have found that the free websites work best when you have a lot of pages to put up. Most of my sites with up to 15 to 20 pages work well. You have to think about what you want to do with your website. How much revenue you are trying to make?

If you are just getting started, you might want to focus on making “business” adjustments until you get their hang comfortable and start making some passive income. If you are the type of person who is never going to quit, whether you start out with a free site and a hosting service or any of a thousand other options – “do whatever with it” or loose it all, all will be well in the future.

For a while it was very stressful to run a business, but that’s how the game is played. Most people have to work 10-20 hours per week just to get their business started. I, however, work about 4 hours a week with my business and just a few hours outside of the business. Each of our families are full of activity; we each either run a home business or are making a living online. But our 2 children are more than mature enough as they grow up and pick up the social skills we need in order not to get buried by a strong economy.

While I am working an online marketing business full-time, I plan ahead a few weeks in advance, and schedule about 1 hour of when I want to work and when I want to do other things. Working almost anywhere from 2 to 6 hours per day in my spare time, allows me to enjoy more time with Gramps, grab dinner at the local restaurant, put the kiddie to bed, and work for a cookbook. If I have a familial task to live to, I can put in aocks and cookbooks. If I just feel like doing push-boy chores around the house, an hour or two is all I need and still have a monster storehouse of work to be done.

So, if you have very little overhead and you can spend your time wisely, my strong guess is that you could have a pretty good business making you a lot of money. If you want to supplement your income until you start to make more and start to spend time with your family, you can do that too. No matter what your situation, the business should make you $100 a month if you put and hours in. That’s about the only thing you will have to spend to get started. No recurring costs of $5 or $10 per month, like many companies are offering.

I could go another $20 if we both work instead of if I do nothing and go at the same 9 to 5. If I get too stressed out and quit the day job, I will run a couple more businesses to do make more money. I keep the rent paid while my business earns, and our kids go to day care so the money is coming in without me. If I started to spend money that I have to pay out-of- pocket, I will soon be broke and not be able to pay the next bill. My business income and expenses both started out as free – online – advertising and getting traffic to attract more customers to my product, but, over the last year, they have nearly doubled to nearly $ reluctantly/ offline – advertising.

So, set your work hours, schedule around family activities and schedule “surveys” to hold you accountable to the sales you are making. When you start making sales, you can start to look for other products you can sell right away, or get in on some affiliate marketing and put up your own online bookstore. Your downline can do the same thing.
