Simple advice, isn’t it? But I don’t mean you personal network, I mean you professional network. Your footprint online, your ability to touch as many people as you possibly can. I will talk about my personal businesses in this article, and lay out the outline and web for what I have designed as a way to drive traffic to generate income in as many channels as possible.
Before I begin, one of the greatest resources I’ve found for marketing and online traffic and services has to be blackhatworld.com. I have learned a ton in such a short period of time, and their articles, forum, and community have helped me make mentality shifts towards being a producer, rather than a consumer.
Now, what I have designed is a web of traffic that is loosely linked together, but in the end is all linked back to my empire. My corporation currently holds about 50 websites, my personal business in real estate, my investments, and my future ventures. I drive traffic via Facebook pages, CPC advertising via Google, affiliate sales, and of course, content that you currently are reading now. I have built a network that pays me 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The internet is always open, and the world over, I have influence. That always makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up: I own a global company simply via this little laptop that I’m typing this on. As Mike Cernovich says, “it gives me a license to print money”.
If I can do it, you can too. I build niche sites that target certain products and drive sales via affiliate accounts with Amazon, Clickbank, and CommissionJunction. I build products and write books that sell via those same channels. I write articles here that drive traffic elsewhere, and in return, have traffic driven back here. I market for multiple companies around the world, and in return, get paid commission in cold, hard cash. I have automated my business via online VAs, employees that are working on the other side of the world, and are able to make me money while I sleep, while I workout, while I enjoy my life. Advertisers pay to get noticed with my content. I buy low and sell high in services, products, and via the stock market and its various vehicles and derivatives.
My hobby is making money. If you have fun making money, there’s no job you will need to work, there is no job you will hate. You love seeing the dollars roll in, but you also love building the system that generates it.
