This post might rub a few people the wrong way.  But it is has to be said…

I’ve decided to stop reading most of the content that has to do with the “Internet Lifestyle” niche.  With a few exceptions (ie: relationships I’ve built through this blog), I’ve hit the ole unsubscribe button on everything that has to do with this niche.

Why?

Simply put – I find that most of the content is completely useless.

My Internet Marketing Rant on a SoapboxWhat you’ll usually find on an Internet lifestyle site are articles like the following:

Having an Internet business is GREAT – Go buy this product to learn how to do it!

OR

How to be super-duper-really-awesome-and-spectacular in your life

OR

7 secrets to minimizing your possessions to 113 items

OR

21 perfect destinations to become location independent

I’ll admit I’ve published similar articles on this blog.  But I’ve learned this kind of content does NOTHING for anyone who wants more freedom in their life. [click to continue…]

In the last month I’ve talked a lot about affiliate marketing.  So let’s shift focus and discuss the other way I make an online income – Selling eBooks.

Affiliate marketing is an excellent business model.  But I’ve found that offering an information product is how you make the real money. Currently I only have a single eBook offer.   Yet this product nets me an average of $3,000 to $4,000 of income each month. The best part is I only work an hour each week on this site. So this money is almost 100% passive income.

My Saturday posts are a chance to have fun and also give back by providing some links to great content.  Sometimes I go off on some pretty strange and esoteric topics.  It is all about having fun, giving out some good information and sometimes trying something new.  I have been swamped with work recently, and I am starting to make some preparations for a short trip to Belize so I asked the wisest person I know help me with today’s post.

Yoda and the Internet Lifestyle

Do or Do Not! There is no try in the internet lifestyle

 

Blogger’s Using The Force this Week -by Yoda of Dagobah

Yoda is a Jedi-knight who is over 9000 years old, he is has been around a long long time and comes from a galaxy far far away.  He is a wise creature who has seen a lot and deals with technology on a daily basis. (see: Lightsabers) The reports of Yoda’s untimely death have been greatly exaggerated; nothing can keep the irrepressible little green guy down for long.  Without further ado, here is Yoda’s list of blog posts that use the Force, take it away Master Yoda:

Yoda speaks blogging:

“Thanks, Steve, glad to be here, am I.  One thing, clear up, I must, before into this week’s blog posts, I dig.  Midcholorians.  Herh herh herh.

The deal, here is!  Joke, it was.  Real pain-in-the butt, Mace Windu was, when a student he was.  The other Masters and I called him “Mace Windbag,” we did.  Tired of his preaching, we were, so we invented this crazy overly elaborate story about Midicholorians, we did.   Powering the force, we said.  Laugh at that foolishness, we did.  But then into the movies, that story went.  On us, the final joke was.

We all understand the importance of providing quality content.   It doesn’t matter if you’re an affiliate marketer, eBook author, or blogger; your job is to create information that changes people’s lives.  This is especially true for the massive value articles (or reports) you offer.

A squeeze page is the foundation of any online business.  It’s the place where you offer a free report or “lead magnet” to get people to join your email list.  And it’s through these subscribers that you generate a large portion of your Internet income.

That’s why it’s incredibly important to optimize a squeeze page and make sure you’re maximizing the number of people who subscribe.

How do you do this? [click to continue…]

The sun is out and birds are chirping as I type this post. Beautiful Spring Day

I would never encourage anyone to NOT read my post.

But once you are done reading, if the weather where you are at is nice, it may be time put away the computer and go outside and enjoy the weather.

Ummm.  Yeah.  Outside… Errrr..  it’s this thing that is “away from the computer.” 

I know.  I know.  It may have been a while.


Let’s not dawdle, let’s get done with the list and get you out to the sunshine. [click to continue…]
