Can You Make Money FAST Online?

Blog title - Can You Really Make Money FAST Online?

Man, this could be the million-dollar question? Can you make money FAST online? The short answer is no. And I’m going to tell you why. All of these people online who are telling you different are just pulling your arm, or lying to you.

The truth is there is no way to make money fast online. You have got to work at it. And I mean put in so many hours before you can cash out. If you want to make making money online a business, then I can show you how.

There is another legitimate way to make money online, and that’s through online surveys. However, I would not recommend it. I’ve done the research, and it comes out to about $1 an hour. Is that really worth your time?

survey checklistIf you want to check out some research, you can check out the reviews I’ve done on Opinion Outpost, MySurvey, or iPoll. Or just take my word for it; it’s just not worth it.

The real and honest way to make money online is through a website. Then there’s this thing called affiliate marketing. Which if you don’t know of, you can learn about it here.

The way you gotta do it is build a website, learn how to drive traffic, and then monetize this traffic. It is no easy feat! There is a place where you can get some online training, and it’s free to start. However, be prepared to put in extensive hours to meet your goals.

Don’t waste your time on all of the other nonsense online.

OH MY GOSH, how much nonsense and scams I have come across online. It is ridiculous! I have been legitimately making money online for a couple of years now.

It’s nothing to write home about, a few hundred dollars a month, but I will continue to scale my business and grow my income. Check out Dominic, who started where I am, and now recorded $1,000,000 in sales in 2017.

networking with peopleIf you do it the right way you can build a significant income online. Inside this recommended training that I’m telling you about, there are a number of Internet entrepreneurs who are making $10,000s of dollars a month.

You can leverage this community of Internet marketers to learn what works best for you. The truth is what works for one does not work for all. You want to build a business around something that you’re passionate about. You shouldn’t have to struggle with your building out your business.

The beautiful part about building websites is like I said you center it around your passions. The next beautiful thing is that you don’t have to stop with just one website. You can create multiple websites.

This website here that you’re on, I’ve been building for a couple of years now. Like I said it’s supplements my income. And I’m also working on a couple more websites. I have one that is centered around credit cards, and the other will be about Uber.

So what does it look like to build a website that makes you money?

Here it goes:

As I mentioned earlier you will probably need some training on how to do this. There’s a free membership offered at a place called Wealthy Affiliate. I think you might find it a new place to call home.

I’ve been there for over a couple of years. There is no other place online like it. There is an abundance of Internet marketers in the online community there, and tons of support. Definitely something you want to look into.

Do not be discouraged about not making money fast online. It just cannot simply be done. There is no such thing! Do not let others steer you astray. It’s so easy to sell someone a dream with a price tag on it.

As an internet marketer for over a couple of years now I’ve learned that you have to put in the work. It is an actual business you will have to invest into it. Sure, you can start out for free. But you’re going to have to build it and you will want to build something with quality.

Look at an offline business for instance.

online businessYou can spend $10,000s on a location and inventory plus marketing. You won’t have to do this online. With affiliate marketing, you can sell millions of items that belong to other people, and make commissions from them.

Why spend the money on a location, and inventory, when you can do it all online? No worries about stocking, shipping, or customer service. It’s all done for you.

Honestly, I spend somewhere around $40 a month. That’s on my internet training platform which includes hosting, and my keyword research tool. Which makes my online business operations a little quicker.

There are a couple of reasons why I keep paying the yearly subscription to be apart of Wealthy Affiliate. One is for the incredible affiliate program, and the other is for continuous education. In any field of business, continuous education is encouraged.

free price tagAs I mentioned earlier you don’t have to spend a dime just to get started. It’s important to get your feet wet first, and then make the decision if this is really the way you want to go. You should know this is going to take you a couple of years to be successful.

The Lucky Few

Sure there’s those lucky few who make it big in their first year. I’ve seen someone make 10 grand in a month within their 12-month mark. Then I’ve seen someone else make 10 grand on their 36 month mark.

The truth of the matter is, it’s based on your own potential. How much effort are you going to put into it? How much work are you going to put in? Are you going to put in the hours it takes to build out your website?

If you really want it, you can really do it. I just wanted to write this blog to really X-Out those that are dishing out BS, and inspire those who really want to make a serious and legitimate business around it.

I would love to hear from you. Leave me some feedback. As always if you have any questions or concerns, I’d be more than happy to help you out with it.

Let me know in the comments below! 😀

The Best Wireless Mouse You Can Purchase in 2018

receipt for bluetooth wireless mouse

If you’re looking for a more pleasureable experience while using your computer or laptop you have to purchase a wireless mouse. There are so many mouses on the market, it can be really difficult to choose one. There are a few things you need to know about buying a mouse.

First, you want to keep it simple. You’reprobably not looking for a gaming mouse, so a plain ol mouse that has a right click and left click will be suffice. Another neat feature will be the forward and back buttons that control your browser pages. I didn’t think this feature was a big deal, until I started using it with my mouse. However, I would not base my purchasing decision solely on this.

Needless to say a corded mouse just don’t make any sense anymore. There are two types of wireless mice that you could purchase. Either a USB receiver or a bluetooth one. I currently own a USB receiver one, and it worked supremely when I first bought it. But I have changed laptops since then, and it is not compatible with the new operating system on my new chromebook.

operating systemWhich leads me to the most difficult part into your shopping experience. Finding a mouse that is compatible with your computer’s operating system. This is really important because the last thing you want to happen is to get your mouse and it does not work properly. Then suffer time lost of not having it while you return it and purchase a new one.

It can be quite overwhelming with so many options online. Believe me, I have cut out ALL OF THE LEGWORK FOR YOU! You can thank me later. Also, you should know this, I am a money saving MANIAC! If anyone can find you a cheap quality mouse, that is me. I save money with the dang near anything and everything!

You don’t need to spend a lot of money on a mouse. I would recommend keeping it under $20. I have seen mice out there for $500! Trust me, you just need it to do one job and that is click on things. Hence the reason why I said earlier keep it simple.

I am an avid computer user. I have an online business that I run. So you can imagine I’m on my laptop A LOT! Nothing makes life easier than having a good wireless mouse. Without further adue, here are the best options to go with:

VicTsing 4.0 Bluetooth MouseVicTSing Bluetooth 4.0 Mouse 2.4G Wireless Portable Mouse

Best price is on eBay for $10.29 with free shipping.

If you’re shopping on Amazon it’s 13.99.

There are 88 customer reviews which give it an average rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars.

Compatible with Windows above 7 (Windows 7 is not fully compatible), Mac OS, notebook, Android OS tablet and smart phone. Important: the side buttons are unavialbe on the Mac OS.

(Remember I said that it is not necessary to have these buttons available. Though they are nice, it won’t be a major loss, and it is not necessary to have a pleasure user experience. Plus, it takes a lot of getting used to.)

Pair it with a Bluetooth connection, or it comes with an optional USB receiver which is stored in the battery compartment.

Requires 1 AA battery (included)

Reviews are of the utmost importance. My main source for these reviews are on Amazon. These are from people who have purchased the item and leaving feedback. Reviews are everything. I would spend the extra money to avoid buying a product with really low review, or star ratings.

The reason I bought it is because it was extremely difficult to find a mouse compatible with Chrome OS. I recently bought a chromebook and my old mouse does not work like I need it too.

You need to have a mouse that is compatible with your operating system, if you want to have a pleasurable experience. Also, it had a four star rating which is really important.

I bought it on eBay because it had free shipping. Though it costs $2 more from Amazon. Without spending the minimum purchase on Amazon of $25 it would have costs $8 for shipping.

These are it folks. I have put in some crazy long research to find you the cheapest and most quality mouses on the market in 2018. You can choose one and rest assure to have made a successful purchase.

writing a paperThe process I go through to review all of the mouses is pretty intensive. I brush through products with a fine tooth comb. Reading through customer reviews, questions and answers, and visiting other blog websites, to make sure that this will be a quality purchase for you.

Let’s face it, if you wanted to, you can go to your neighborhood walmart and find a cheap mouse or a higher priced mouse. But when you go into these things, you go into them blind. Without doing your online research, you don’t know what you’re buying.

Kudos to you for doing the research. I hope you enjoy your mouse!

My Experience With Chromebook vs Laptop

racing flags chromebook vs laptop

Wow, I am really glad to be here and going to be speaking about the wonders of the chromebook vs a regular laptop. I’m just a regular guy, but I also have an online business that I manage (here). So I need to have a laptop for my business.

My old laptop was old and raggedy. It was time that I purchase a new one. So I went shopping for one. It turned out for me that the acer chromebook was the best deal for me, and I purchased it.

I thought I got a great deal at the time, it was selling for like $197. I believe I bought the 14” inch one. When I got home and set it up, I was a little caught off guard. The name chromebook looked so cool to me, but I had no idea what it actually was.

time for changeIs this where you are? Not sure whether a chromebook will work for you? Unfamiliar with the benefits of it and maybe scared to let go of the ol’ familiar laptop. Which we have been working with for over a decade.

No worries, I was too. Shockingly, I was turned off by the idea of not being able to have Microsoft applications such as Word, Powerpoint, or Excel on my laptop. I was a bit irritated by the idea. To make matters worse, there was no Start menu!

At this point, I was really dissatisfied, I was set on taking it back. And I did. I put it back in its box, and went back to Walmart to return it. I continued to use my old raggedy laptop. I appreciated it more because it had Microsoft Word and a Start menu.

1.5 Years Later…

My laptop was going really slow. I would constantly need to restart it because it would freeze or just go entirely way to slow! I finally got fed up, and decided to look up laptops again. It was around Thanksgiving time last year in 2017.

acer chromebookThere were some reasonably priced laptops including a Samsung, HP, and this Acer Chromebook. I remembered the Chromebook I purchased previously. Then all of sudden, it hit me. I don’t even need those things that it didn’t have!

I stopped using Microsoft Word a long time ago. There is no reason why I would need an offline word processor. And the start menu was not that important. It was just a user friendly way to find a calculator and the control panel.

Plus, it was the most economically priced. I believe it was selling for $179. It was priced competitively across the market at places such as Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon. I’ll never forget what happened next.

I waited until the Black Friday sale. It dropped down to $159. Then it dawned on me, I should wait until Cyber Monday. And so I did. Sure and behold, it dropped down to $99 on Amazon! I jumped on that deal like white on rice.


Here I am today, happily typing this blog post on my white Acer Chromebook 11.6. I fell in love with this thing the moment I set eyes on it. I did some thorough reviews about what it would look like and feel like in my hands.

Above was the most helpful review I found on the Chromebook 11.6. And let me tell you, I was that much more satisfied with it in person. The look, the feel of it, it’s performance, and the simplicity of its navigation.

Do you Need a 4 GB or 2 GB?

While I was shopping for my new chromebook, I was concerned of which one to purchase. As there is a 2 GB one or a 4 GB, for just a little more money. I decided to make an informed decision and found this informational blog online here.

bar graphsIt does not make a world of difference. However, there is a 11% increase in performance for the 4 GB. During this time, the 4 GB was only like $30-$40 more. But I really didn’t feel like I needed it. I think you may need more memory or ram if you do more.

If you’re the type of person who has multiple applications open at a time, and use a lot of photoshop, then 4 GB is the way to go. That wasn’t me though. I just open 5-10 tabs on my we browser usually. And occasionally, have 1-2 more apps open on the laptop. It’s rare though.

I do a lot of graphic imaging, but not anything intense. I just create cool images, or find free images online to use on my website. That’s about it. If you’re like me, you will be completely fine with the 2 GB.

How do You Choose from All of The Different Varieties?

I’m all about saving money, and not compromising much on quality. Basically, I’m looking for the best bang for my buck! No doubt about it, the Acer Chromebook is a great deal. But if you’re looking for something different, here are a couple of things to go by.

user reviewsLook for reviews. Amazon is really good about this. Verified purchasers post their reviews on the platform after they purchase. Amazon is my go too, when I want to learn more about a product’s quality.

From there I check out places such as Walmart, Best Buy, and Ebay. There are a few variables that go into making the best purchasing decision, not just price. How much is the shipping? More importantly, how long will it take to reach me via shipping?

Are there savings if I choose a site to store pick up, at any one of the merchants? What happens if I need to make a return? Will it be easy to return? These are all important questions to ask when buying a product. Save yourself a headache later, and put some time into making the right decision.

My Personal Experience Since I Bought it.

Ultimately, I’m very satisfied with my Chromebook. And there is no need to ever go back to a regular laptop. Unless I get into a business that requires to be offline and the use of Microsoft applications. Seriously though, you can accomplish so much with Google apps.

Do yourself a favor, if you get stuck using your new chromebook at all, Google for information. Chromebooks are very different in their own little way. At one point, I did not know how to copy and paste. I just could not figure it out.

google result for copy and paste

I went on Google and found out, you just have to use two fingers on the right side of the clicker and press down with both. And up comes the menu. I was so amazed with this finding. It gets aggravating sometimes, because you have to do it a certain way, but not a real big deal.

The laptop is beautiful, it’s all white, with black keys. The whole laptop including the keyboard has a soft feel to it. The desktop is not the same as a regular laptop, but just a simple background with your apps at the bottom.

It starts off with just the four, Chrome, Gmail, Docs, and YouTube. If you click the little circle on the left of the toolbar, it opens a search field, where you can download apps. There are many different apps that you might want to choose from.

It’s pretty much like a Google Play type deal but for a laptop. I dig it. I downloaded a snipping type tool, and a notepad type app. The apps are a little annoying because they don’t come up in different windows but on separate tabs in your browser. Although, you can just pull out the tab into a separate browser and minimize it for the same effect.

google apps icons on chromebook desktopIt’s pretty awesome that you get to stay logged into your Google accounts. You can share your calendar on your laptop along with your android phone. I find it real user friendly that I can open up my Gmail, Docs, or YouTube right into my account. Saves the time from logging in.

Happy hunting,

Jonathan

3 Month Hiatus

3 month hiatus

Wahoo! I’m baaaaack! Hi readers, so glad to be here with you today. I am so sorry that I’ve been away for so long. My confession: I gave up! OMG, like how many of us do this? I’m so tired of giving up. It’s like our buddy Shia LeBeouf said, “if you’re tired of starting over, stop giving up!”

I got tired. I got tired of working and working, and yielding no results. I kept up with my PPC campaigns. I make pretty good money there, but I gave up on blogging. I made this goal in my first year, that I would write 100 blogs. I did this so that I can boost the seo on my website. We all know the trick is to drive traffic. Without traffic, there’s no mula.

seoSeo is HUGE! Though my mentor Kyle, co-owner of Wealthy Affiliate, inspired me with the words, “you are an Seo Analyst”. I still was not confident. I couldn’t get not one of those 100 blogs on the first page of Google. The closest I got was like the bottom of page 2 or 3. No one is making a $1 by doing that.

That was a conversation that I was having with Kyle, when I was on the verge of spending $100/hr with an SEO Analyst to try and figure out what was wrong with my website. Kyle then told me, I probably know more than him! He’s probably telling the truth. I learned a lot from Kyle, and he has been in the business over a dozen years. That’s 10-15 years of wisdom in internet marketing that he is transferring over to me; and any or every member at Wealthy Affiliate.

I gave up. Plain and simple. No doubt about it. I can’t believe it though. I did it again! I told myself that I wouldn’t. How many of us have done that? I really was certain that I would continue working on my business until it was successful. People should follow my mentor Kyle. He is someone to really gain some perspective from. All the years of wisdom on the internet, he shares some pretty insightful things. I love reading his blogs. They make so much sense in this business.

statistics chartThree months of no blogging. I was done. I didn’t want to come back either. I was tired of all that commitment and hard work going unnoticed. Then, all of sudden, BANG! I get traffic. Now it’s nothing to boast about. It’s probably around 50-100 visitors a month, but hey it’s a start. I was on my statistics page at Wealthy Affiliate when I noticed the spike in traffic. I hurried over to Google Webmaster Tools and logged in. The proof was in the pudding.

I had over 50 keywords ranking on Page 1 of Google. Man, this was a miracle for me. I was so excited, I told my wife I’m getting back to blogging. I even went and invested some of my earnings from my website into a brand new laptop. It’s pretty cool, an Acer Chromebook. I got this crazy deal on Cyber Monday for a little less than 50% off. Here I am writing this blog off my new laptop. 🙂

I’m a proud business owner of my little online business. I’m thankful to my visitors who ignited the flame I had in the beginning. I was determined to make it in the beginning. I don’t know why I lost that flame. Results are a major factor. If I had to evaluate myself I would say I fell off a little. I focused on the money and that was a mistake. Some wise words I heard in the past were focus on the opportunity.

home officeInternet marketing gives you the opportunity to work from home, and that is what I want. I want to be able to make my own schedule, bring in a decent income, and help others do the same.

We’re gonna make it. Here is too another year of blogging and 100 more blogs. Ooh, let’s see if I can break that record. Wish me luck, as I’ll do the same for you.

Continuation…

I learned a valuable lesson through this hardship. Don’t ever give up. I made a good decision a couple of years ago and joined one of the #1 rated internet programs on the internet, Wealthy Affiliate. I learned so much. I was a boost of energy during and throughout the training. There was so much to learn there. There are so many successful people on the network sharing their successes, and others sharing daily motivation.

We have to stay positive. Keep on working, and wait for your time to shine. Keep doing what has been proven and it will happen for you.

Now what?

I will keep working at it. I will pick up where I left off, try and put in some extra effort, and keep my focus on the opportunity.

Have you ever took this kind of hiatus? Let me know about it in the comments below. Feel free to share it. I would love to hear about it, and you could help many others as well.

Thank you for reading,
