What You Need to Get Started

Posted by Investor | 9:11 AM | 0 comments »

Although the Internet has made it a lot easier for people to make a start in business, it is still worth making sure that you maximise your potential as a businessperson by having all of the possible tools you could need to get things up and running. In order to start, you need comparatively little compared with a bricks and mortar business – but the better equipped you are, the more possibilities you can turn into definites.

A computer and an Internet connection are obviously the base minimum. As you are reading this, you have access to those at least. It is then a matter of what you need to add to these. If you want to put photographs of yourself or things that you are selling onto the Internet, you will need either a digital camera (preferable) or a scanner (just about acceptable). You will also need somewhere to put the photographs – a website (which requires you to buy webspace) or a blog (which does not). A website is more customisable, so if you have the know-how to do this, it is preferable.

To sell things at the click of a button you can ask your bank to set up a business account with scope to take electronic payments, or you can open an eBay account. Using eBay you will be able to auction items or services off to the highest bidder, and receive payments almost instantly through PayPal. The benefits of having the Internet mean that you can do all of this from a chair just in front of your computer.

Taking Free Paid Surveys Online

Free Paid Surveys, Get Paid To Take Surveys, Take Online Surveys for CASH!

More than likely you have seen ads like these all over the internet. And like most people you are probably wondering if they are true. Can you really get paid to take surveys online? Or is paid surveys just another scam? Surprisingly, the answer is yes. You can actually get paid to take surveys online.

There are many companies that will pay you to participate in online surveys, focus groups, and even product tests. These are market research companies that are paid by large companies to find out what the public feels about their products. They want to know if their advertising camppagns are working and how everyday people feel about their products. Large corporations spend billions of dollars a year on advertising. So to pay you a few dollars to find out if their advertising is working is not that big of a deal. So they hire these market research companies. And the market research companies send out surveys to everyday people to find out what the public is thinking.

There are also several misconceptions about taking paid surveys online. Many advertisements will tell you that you can make up to $250 an hour taking paid surveys. Although it is possible to be compensated $250 for participating in an important study or focus group, the average paid survey will pay you between $2 and $20.

There are also a few different kinds of paid survey sites. There are paid survey directories, or databases, and there are the actual paid survey companies. A paid survey, or market research company, is the actual company that will send you the paid surveys. And also the one that will compensate you for your participation. An example of a paid survey company is NFO My Survey. NFO has been around for over 20 years and is one of the major paid survey companies on the internet. When joining a paid survey site like NFO you are notified by email when your participation in a paid survey is needed. You can then choose to take the paid survey or simply ignore it. You are told how much you will be paid for taking each survey and how long the paid survey should take to complete. Companies like NFO My Survey are always free to join. A legitimate paid survey company will never ask you to pay a fee to join.

Another type of site is a paid survey directory, or database. Paid survey databases provide directories of paid survey companies. These are the sites you go to to find companies that will pay you to participate in online surveys. There are several databases you can join. But most online paid survey databases are not free. A site like SurveyScout charges about $35 for their directory of 490 paid survey companies. Others charge anywhere from $20 to $60 to access their paid surveys directory. Many people are fooled into thinking that when they join these membership sites they will automatically start receiving paid surveys. A membership site like SurveyScout does not actually send paid surveys. they are only a directory of companies that you join that send paid surveys online.

Before you spend $35 dollars for a paid survey database do some looking around. A good paid survey directory will have everything you would find in a paid membership site and is absolutely free. There is no need to pay to find paid surveys. In fact, why would you want to pay for free information? Paid membership sites are simply taking advantage of the fact that most people don't know where to look for this type of information. And once they pay and then find out that they paid for a directory, most people feel like they have been scammed. My advice would be to bypass a paid directory. And use a free paid survey directory.

If you are looking for a full-time income online, paid surveys may not be the thing for you. Although you can make some good money taking paid surveys online, more than likely it will not be enough to make you rich. On the other hand, if you want to make some extra money without much effort then paid surveys is the way to go.

The key to getting paid to take surveys online is joining as many of these paid survey companies as possible. Most paid survey sites will only send a few paid surveys a month.

So the logic is, the more paid survey companies you belong to the more paid survey invitations you will receive. And the more money you will make. I'ts a good idea to start off with around 10 to 20 good paid survey companies. Each one will only take a few minutes to sign up for and is well worth it. There are around 500 paid survey companies you can join. And once you have joined the main ones you can go back and join others to receive even more paid surveys. Of 500 paid survey companies I would have to say that there are about 50 that will send you paid surveys on a regular basis. The rest may only send one a month or even less. So starting with the top paid surveys is obviously the best way to go.

You must answer a few screener questions before taking a survey to see if you fit the profile for the type of person the company is interested in. After taking a few screeners you can start to see how you should answer to make yourself qualify. for instance, most paid survey screeners will ask you if you work in a certain industry, or any type of market research or advertising business. The answer to a question like this should almost always be no. They do not want people who know the market research business taking their surveys. And you will almost always not qualify for the paid survey.

Well now that you have all the information you need it's up to you to decide if paid surveys is for you or not. If you are interested in paid surveys I highly reccommend NFO My Survey, Global Test Market, Survey Savvy, Survey Spot, E-Poll, ECN Research, Lightspeed Research, American Consumer opinion, Test Spin,GoZing surveys, Greenfield Online, and Opinion Outpost. There several more great paid survey sites. These are just my personal favorites.

If you are already making some money on the Internet,
how do you increase the revenue and earn more money online?

Do you have to work twice as hard as you did earlier?
Not really because marketing online is very different than
those in the real world where you can implement new tactics
easily on the internet.

To start making money online on autopilot, the first step
is to think a bit more creatively about your current webpages.
Look at your website, and analyze the pages. Then identify
the one page where you could add an "up-sell".

What to up-sell and how to up-sell is the key.

Up-selling is not a difficult art to master provided you
know what to up-sell and how to up-sell. More often than
not, marketers mix up a lot of ideas and make an absolute
hash of up-selling. In fact, in some cases, people drop
their ideas of buying a product when they are given a
product that doesn’t correlate to the main product.

Once you understand what you need to up-sell, you should
find out how best you can up-sell your product.

Here are some cost-saving techniques to help you increase
your online revenue on the Internet:

i. You can now add an up-sell on your newsletter subscription
page. All you got to do is ask the visitors to sign up for
let’s say a free trial offer just before they click on the
Register for the paid product.

ii. You may have a sales page directly selling a particular
product. Just add another product before the visitor can
click on the Buy button for the paid product. You may text
the up-selling product as a discounted bonus!

iii. You could also up-sell your product in the shopping cart.
This is what you should do – Before the visitors confirm their
order, ask them to include the up-selling product in the cart.
This could be a good conversion mechanism because you don’t
really ask the customers to go through a series of steps to
click and buy on your up-selling product.

Mind you – Any effort you take to increase your online revenue
on autopilot has to be done with equal amount of diligence.
The task here is on a different wavelength. You intend to make
money without you having to actually work for it. If you have
been a believer in earning money by working hard, this concept
would come as a big change for you.

Importantly, there is no niche on the Internet, which does not
have scope for you to earn money on autopilot. All it needs is
a bit of thought, and you would be able to crack some ideas on
your own. Watch out for one thing though – At the start, as it
happens in most cases, the revenue inflow wouldn’t be as huge
as you would have forecasted.

Take things slowly, and if you are able to add even one zero
to your earning on a monthly basis, you would have made a
good start to earn money on autopilot.

Do you believe that someone without any internet marketing experience can make money online in less than a week?

You see, I'm a strong believer that it's ALWAYS important to build an internet business that can generate income-- not just about making money online.

And as a matter of fact, I get annoyed when anyone asks me a question like...

"Can you teach me how to make money online in a week?"

In my mindset, its 'hard' to make money online for a newbie and it'll take at least 6 weeks to get on the right track. I even think that it's already 'wrong' in the first place to have that kind of silly hope.

**BUT**... I realized how I'm shutting myself and my client's possibilities because I'm being a Smart Alec. I'm being ignorant. There's absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to make money online without spending the time to learn and putting effort, AND wanting to see income in your Paypal within a couple of days.

It is possible and I can prove it to you. No list, no product, no JVs, no nothing.

The only concern is this-- you just got to know how to differentiate a real business and the process of making money online.

An internet business is a platform to make money online. But making money online does not mean you have an internet business.

When you want to make money on the internet, there are two ways to go about it.

The first one is to build a real internet business as mentioned earlier. In this method, normally, you'll select the niche market based on your current expertise, what you like or if it's your hobby. The strategy for this is to dominate the sub-niche of the pursued niche market and grow it 'deep'.

Or build an internet business based on your million-dollar idea like the next facebook.com or something.

The other one is to break the 'rule' of building a real business by setting up as many 'income generators' as you can on the internet. For instance, putting up ads to promote affiliate programs. As you can see, this is really quick because it doesn't require any product creation or even a website.

The game for this is simple too-- the more you can put up on the internet, the higher the chance of success and the richer you'll be. The internet marketing game is very simple to play- the more 'presence' you can have on the internet, the more money you'll start to see.

The good thing about this method compared to the first one is you have minimal risk and you'll start seeing income as you go along.

BUT THERE'S A PROBLEM-- you desperately need speed. If you don't use software or hire people to do the mechanical work for you, you just can't put up enough 'income generators' on the internet. My point is, forget about this option if you're going to do manually - it's just too much work.

But the ultimate business strategy is to combine both options.

Here's how it works - send traffic to the affiliate program by using Google Adwords and see how many clicks you can get. In some profitable niches, you can get thousands of clicks at dirt cheap.

If this is happening, then you should start diverting these visitors to your own landing page (instead of sending the traffic directly to the affiliate program) and get them to subscribe into your list. Bam. Now you get to promote the same affiliate program to your list as many times as you want and keep on promoting other products for maximum profit.

If you're getting good commission for a particular affiliate program and you kind of like that niche market, you can consider creating your own product to sell then.

Another month has passed and life continues to grow towards what you want or the other way round.

Did you set a goal early this year? Well, did you get what you want by now - after so many months of working hard for it? Apparently, most people don't and that's the problem with setting goals.

We cannot be setting goals with the intention of trying to get what we want because that will become a chasing game which will wear you out. Maybe not for you, but I know I will when I'm chasing 'something'. The goal must be a part of us. My goal is to become who I want and where I want to be mentally and physically.

Your goals must be something that you achieve internally so that you can see it, taste it, smell it and feel it.

Wealth. Love. Connection. Knowledge. Experience.

If you were to evaluate what's success, it boils down to being happy.

I'm not trying to play Zen Master here but to make a point how we make our lives complicated without understanding the true purpose of our action. Life doesn't have to be that way.

There are a few things I've learned from observations and experiencing this year and I'm glad to share them with you today. Who knows, they may give you a shortcut for your journey to obtain the success you're seeking...

i. Your mind attracts what you want. This year, I have my fair share of enjoying successes and experiencing setbacks in life. And when I sit back to think about it, they come in 'sequences'. Once I've gained success, I'll have the momentum to get another one. When I failed and stay in that state, another failure will come again. I don't know, some called it Law of Attraction. To me, I strongly believe that you get what you want based on what your mind thinks because it 'attracts'.

ii. There's one time Grandma falls sick and stayed in the hospital for couple of days. When I visited her in the hospital, I felt blessed that she's still in this beautiful world. Although it's nothing serious, but my heart tells me one thing- nothing in this world will give me the same love and relationship I have with her.

There are only two factors that will remove your love and relationship with someone you care about- when he/she is no longer here or you have ignored the treasure you have today for something that is less valuable but perceived to be valuable. Let me warn you-- once they're gone, they're gone. You should know who to call, hug or kiss by now.

iii. Know your roots. If you're successful today, you're probably once a 'nobody'. Always be humble because it will give you more success in life. I mean, isn't that how you got to where you are today? Knowing your roots also means remembering those who have supported you when you're growing and stayed by your side through thin and thickness. They are just there because they want to be there for you with no other hidden expectations.

iv. Explore life like there's no ending. Listen to new music. Visit new places. Eat at new restaurants. Play new sports. Meet new people. And an endless list of things you can do regardless of whether you're wealthy or not. You see, money doesn't stop you from exploring life. Obviously, you can't do the many things that Bill Gates or Richard Branson can do but there are easily hundreds of things you can do with what you have today. Do you know why we live? I don't have the answer but I'm 100% sure it's not to work and whine about what we don't have.

v. Life is great. As I'm writing this, I'm in my new condominium with nice yellow lightings, listening to a wonderful music and my wife is making a cup of coffee for me. I can feel the cool breeze coming in from the balcony while sitting on a soft brand new, purple sofa. In front of me, I can see a mirror- and when I looked deep; I thank God for giving me this amazing life. Not because my Ego's saying I have an amazing life, but it's really true.

You have an amazing life whether you want to admit it or not. There are people sleeping on the streets today, wandering to look for food and so on. Because you're reading this, I dare to assume that you have a computer- which also means that you're under a roof and are an educated person. You have eyes to read and a wonderful brain to think. For that, life is already great. The rest are bonuses.

Some might complain about being financially broke. You can be broke but you can never be poor because being broke is a temporarily state that can be changed. It might not be now but with sheer persistence and effort combined with using the right information and a willingness to take action, it's just a matter of time before you look back satisfied and said, "I was once broke but now, I'm wealthy and living the life I've always wanted." Does that sound good? Then, why not make it a reality because you can.
