How to Make Your First $1,000 Online

Ask any blogger what they want to achieve out of their blogging activities and most of them will tell you that they want to make money out of it. But it’s a hard thing to do but not impossible. Making money online is down to 2 things; creating content and then letting other people know about it. You combine them together; you are half way there to making the money you want from the comfort of your own home. One thing is important; you have to believe that you can make money online. The moment you think you can’t, you are out of the rat race. So here is a plan on how to make your first $1,000 online.

Pick One Method and Stick With It

One of the biggest mistake people can make when it comes to making money online is to get stuck in the “eBook rut.” In other words, they spend months and months just reading eBooks without actually taking any action.

Even worse, they end up spending just about all their money on eBooks and have nothing left to invest into actually building internet marketing projects.

Instead of spending that $500 to $1,000 on eBooks, put it towards pay per click (PPC) and you’ll likely learn a lot more from real world experience than if you bought 10 or 20 eBooks. Just make sure you have campaign limits and budgets so you don’t burn through your whole budget in a week.
That said, it is important to invest in your own education. The key is moderation. Instead of jumping from guru to guru, eBook to eBook, method to method, just pick one.

That means carefully researching the method before you purchase any eBook. Once you make a purchase, commit to yourself that you’ll stick with it and at least try using the method until you can determine the results for yourself before moving on.

Setting a Minimum Daily Work Time

It can be very easy to let either procrastination or “real life” get in the way of actually building websites and internet projects.

Make sure you set aside a few hours a day to work on your $1,000 online income goal. Donald Trump, the real estate billionaire, advocates putting at least two hours a day into achieving your dreams and goals. No matter what kind of job or family life you have, you need to commit to at least two hours a day of online marketing work if you want to achieve your goals.

Be Willing to Spend Money on Results

 

A lot of beginners are a little afraid to spend money online. They feel like they don’t quite know what they’re doing and they’re worried they’ll lose money if they actually put money on the line.

While it’s true that you’ll probably make mistakes in the beginning, one of the worse mistakes you could make is trading small amounts of money for large amounts of time.

For example, instead of starting a brand new website from scratch, you can often buy PR3 or PR4 websites with existing backlinks for as little as $10. You must also consider joining Blog Engage, a place where you can submit your artilcles and get it read and ranked by others.

You’ll skip over 3 to 6 months worth of link building work and get off to a nice head start. Is it possible that the site will fail and you won’t make any money? Of course. But most people will agree it’s better to waste $10-20 than 6 months of your life. Spending money on PPC or accelerated SEO can really cut your learning curve back. Be careful about spending money in the beginning, but don’t be timid.

If you follow these tips and carefully research then select a method, set a minimum amount of time you’ll put in daily and spend money intelligently to accelerate your progress, you’ll very quickly hit your first $1,000 in profit.

So this is how to make your first $1,000 online as quickly as possible. Let me know what you think.

    I cannot but agree with what you’ve said so far dear Shalu. One of the greatest causes of online business failure is lack of proper time management as well as misinformation!

    I believe it’s always better spending your money on a worthwhile project than putting your whole time there.
    This is infact an eye opener. Thank you.

    I agree that we should put some time everyday other wise we wont see any results. There was a time when I was jumping from one course to another without doing anything. We have to take action if we want to succeed. I stumbled upon a blog post which spoke about 80 20 principle. It said to devote 20 percent of our time on learning and 80 percent on completing important tasks. :-)
