More about making money online

Should making money online be fun? Frank Kern would say so.

Most of you would have seen the Frank Kern's Mass Control online marketing exercise in the last week.

If you bought, good luck to you and I hope it pays off for you.

Frank certainly knows how to make money online and so did all his buddy gurus. Did you get an invite to the trough? No? Nor did I. Does it bother you that those in the Inner Circle get to make a bucket load of money online and the rest of us are expected to feed the beast.

Well it does me. I want to make money online, I don't need to make $1,000,000 in a couple of hours, I don't even need to make that much every year. Making money online for me is all about replacing the day job and being able to become independent and 10% of Frank's one day payday would make a good yearly income for me.

I am going to give you a single tip here, you should put up a website of some sort , a blog is good, and work on driving traffic to it. Why? Because that is actually pretty easy to do AND that is all making money online is about.

Don't believe me do you.

Think about this, if you have traffic to a website that you control then you can write an article on a particular subject "making money online" for example, post it to ezinearticles with a link back to your post on the same subject, add a freebie in exchange for an email address if you want to build a list, a freebie to bring visitors and offer an RSS feed, have a link to a product you recommend, some adsense ads etc.

Making your money online begins with somewhere to stamp your personality and somewhere to send traffic. Once you have some content and some traffic it gets easier and easier to make money.

Stop trying for short cuts, there aren't any. Frank Kern may have made $1million in a couple of hours but he has first been making money online for about 10 years and has many, many JV partners which puts his product in front of possibly 100,000,000 potential customers.

You can't do that, yet. Start getting traffic. Then make money online.
