What Is The Best Business
For Making Money On The Internet?

>>Can I get your opinion on something?
>>I was told that you are the expert in how to make money on the internet.
>>I am looking to start some type of business that would bring in a few thousand dollars each month.
>>What is the best business to do this?
>>What do you recommend that I learn?

First of all if you are in the same shoes as the person who wrote the above message let’s get one thing straight. I do not call myself an expert. And I’m no guru.

I may be exceptionally good though at seeing others people’s overlooked opportunities that they themselves may not see. I know this because I’ve helped a number of individuals worldwide launch and successfully build businesses of their own.

Sometimes an objective view, fresh eyes is all that is needed. Other times it is specialized knowledge that is needed. In any case I help where I can.

Magic Bullet

That said, there is no magic bullet money making business. No one-size-fits-all business model. Every option depends on who you are right now. Unfortunately I know nothing about you. I know nothing about your circumstances. I know nothing about your location or area of business. And I know nothing about your disposition. So there is no authentic way of suggesting anything specific for your circumstances.

However, business models based around these two options are still effective even in today’s “broken” economy:

  • Consulting {one-on-one coaching, group coaching, email coaching, copywriting, SEO/PPC/IM services, etc}
  • Publishing {information products of all sorts}

Eben Pagan and Igor Ledochowski both reportedly gross more than $10 million annually doing the above. Dan Kennedy reportedly grossed over $500 million his best year ever while basically doing the same.

Both consulting and publishing require time, effort, and money to pursue clients and customers. You need resources to pursue these avenues of income. And you need to know how to differentiate yourself.

Three Sheets In The Wind

Oh. There is a third option for making money besides publishing and direct consulting. Let me tell you of an experience…

I have an offline buddy who’s earning a very substantial income doing not much more than teaching business folks how to get the most from their smart phones and digital devices. He conducts company seminars with executives and business owners and any staff members selected by the executives and owners to attend.

It is a business he fell into by accident. As more and more people kept asking him how he’s automating so much and getting so much done it turned into invitations to do in-office staff-only seminars as a result of him having taught one executive after another to use their smart phones.

His business is growing. And he is now making the most money in his life. ironically he is doing so just from consulting and teaching smart phone usage to executives who had no idea so much automation can be handled via a handheld phone.

To Give A Hoot

Do you have something of value others would be willing to pay money for? If so that may be one way to go.

Igor Ledochowski’s The Money In Your Mind program is a good course that explains the importance of making money by sincerely adding value into the lives of others. Is too long of a seminar to consume in one sitting (17 hours including bonuses, I think). But there are some really good parts. But you have to go through a lot of useless stories to find the actionable info.

If you choose to go through that course you MUST print the 300+ pages of transcripts. Otherwise the actionable steps will get overlooked because there is so much content to wade through. For a 15 DVD set, the course is relatively cheap. And what’s more, there are no sales pitches or up sales in the course materials. He is actually attempting to deliver useful content. Not deliver a 15 hour “pitchfest” disguised as a seminar.

Ok, to sum things up here are three statistically valuable business models for earning a living that almost anyone can get started at:

  • Consulting
  • Publishing
  • Make money by adding value in other ways to the lives of other people, consumers or b2b. Igor’s materials may help you accomplish this step.

Which if any of these choices are ideal for you to pursue will depend much on your disposition and circumstances. There is no such thing as a magic bullet. No ‘one size fits all’ business direction.

To Serve Up A Fat Pitch

Throughout this membership site I’ve published several articles that touched on aspects of all three of the above. I’ve also published paid products over the years that expanded beyond the information available for free in my membership site.

This is not a sales pitch for the membership site. At least not directly. There’s nothing to buy. That’s because I removed all of my paid products years ago. The internet continues to change. The products I created and published beginning in the 90’s are no longer valid. They are dated. Same is true of my internet-related products published in the earliest part of this decade. I’ve yanked them all. And in most cases either sold the domains or allowed the sites to go into domain purgatory.

My point is I have no products to pitch you into buying. So if you need help figuring out how to enter the consulting or publishing industry or need help launching a business idea I may be available for authentic, no product pushing, one-on-one telephone or email coaching.

Contact me if this is something of interest to you. Perhaps I may be able to provide the fresh eyes or specialized knowledge needed to help you reach your dream of launching a business of your own too.
