As I write this post it is just after 4 in the morning on my fifth day here in Finland. I am here visiting with family, and we are at the lake house, located about 90 kilometers northwest of Helsinki. I had promised them I would not be on the computer all the time during our two weeks together, so I decided to experiment with the idea of working just one hour each day.
My goal is to earn one hundred dollars a day based on what I would be doing during that hour. I am not counting any income I earn from my own products or recurring membership sites, as well as any affiliate income I earn on a regular basis. This is all new income from affiliate products I am promoting during that hour each day.
So far I am way ahead of my goal, and I wanted to share what I am doing to make this possible. I went back to my 5 pronged approach to making money online, a concept I’ve been teaching my students for about three years now. The 5 prongs are blogging, article marketing, social media, teleseminars, and affiliate marketing. Each day, during the hour I am online. I am doing something from this list, along with reading and answering some email.
I have now written two blog posts and two articles, a 5 page short report, and commented in several forums. I spend a few minutes on Twitter each day letting people know what I am doing. I have not been able to access my Facebook account because I am in a remote location and could not answer the security questions they asked. I am also using a computer that is completely in Finnish, a language I do not speak. This means that I will need to ask for help when converting and saving my short report as a PDF document.
The hour limitation each day requires that I stay focused and organized. It also means that I am outside of my comfort zone because of the language. Could I continue this for an even longer period of time and still make money? Definitely.
When I think of my students who are the most successful with earning money online quickly, they all have one thing in common; they are all learning the basics from Stephen Beck’s easy to follow program. This is a step by step program that encompasses my 5 pronged approach and includes videos to show you exactly how to complete each step easily. Take a look and see if this would make a difference for you. I’ll keep you updated on my progress.
