Big Little Ideas

Big Little Ideas—What Turns Little Ideas into Big Dollars?

Big Little Ideas

Anyone with a dream can relate to little ideas that turn into big dollars. Americans especially are enamored with people who come essentially out of nowhere and make it big. One of my favorite examples are Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs. These guys changed the world with a big little idea…the desktop computer.

I know it’s hard to believe that it wasn’t so long ago we didn’t have things like laptop computers, iPads, iPhones, etc., etc.

Now I’m not going to rehash the success Wozniak and Jobs had with Apple. A $600 billion company doesn’t need my help.

What I’d like to discuss is what turns ideas into reality.

Look around you. Every restaurant, every franchise, every major or minor business in this country began as one thing. Do you know what it is? an idea…I said AN IDEA! Read the rest of this entry

Multiple Streams of Internet Income

Multiple Streams of Internet Income

I was recently reading a blog by gentleman from Brazil entitled “Americans Are Stupid?” Now before anyone blows a blood vessel make sure you notice he asked the question. It was a great blog and the bottom line of course is that he admires Americans. He was asking the question after reviewing a YouTube video with Empower Network Co-founder David Wood. In the video David shows, among other things, how STUPID it is for ANYONE to work for ONE boss, company, client, whatever.

As David so eloquently puts it he’d rather get $10 a month from 1000 people than $10,000 a month from one.

WHY?

Well it’s easy…just do the math. Now I am certainly NO proponent of mathematics in public so what you are about to see should not necessarily be viewed by small children or people with
weak stomachs. Read the rest of this entry

Does Facebook Make Money

This morning as I was listening to one of my favorite talk show hosts and he made an interesting comment about Facebook. In his opinion Facebook was indicative of all that is BAD about our economy because Facebook doesn’t “produce” anything.

The host was lamenting how “unlike the old days” when America produced “things” such as buggy whips and horse-drawn carriages Facebook could show nothing tangible coming off of a production line.

He was, in fact, discussing Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram for $1 billion. Money for the acquisition coming from, according to the host HAD to come from Facebook’s looming IPO which some estimate could bring in as much as $5 billion dollars – where else could they come up with that kind of money?

Blog for Dollars

Blog for Dollars

In yesterday’s post we talked about the Coke analogy of building a business on volume. Coca-Cola made billions by placing millions of soda machines around the world where people could put their coins in and purchase high volumes of 12-oz sodas.

The goal of a online marketing was to drive thousands of people to a SINGLE website where they could then purchase a product or service. Again, however, the goal was volume. How then does one “drive” thousands of people to their website? Although there are a number of ways to get people to a website, today we focus on the web log or BLOG.

Blog for Dollars

A blog can be many things but generally it is a journal of one’s ideas. Blogs come in many shapes and sizes. Many are nothing more than rants, raves, and reviews.

Some statistics point to over 100,000,000 blogs on the Internet! Most of those blogs are not in it for the money, however, these bloggers are in it, generally for self-fulfillment.

Since you are reading this blog, however, and this is an online marketing blog, and marketing is a fancy word for sales I’m pretty confident that you dear reader are on the Internet to make money and if you blog you will… Read the rest of this entry
