Hi! I'm Jennifer - known as 'PotPieGirl' online. Welcome to my blog! I just want to let you know that this post may contain affiliate links which means, at no cost to YOU, that I might receive compensation if you purchase something through a link on my site. In the blogging world that's called "affiliate marketing", and it's a very common way bloggers make money by sharing products they love (like I do). Yes, that's how many blogs make money. For example, This blogger makes $50,000+ a MONTH with her blog - blogging is solid home-business idea for just about everyone.
Thinking About Starting Your OWN Blog? If YOU'D like to learn how to make money blogging with affiliate marketing like I do, feel free to read my Free Blogging 101 E-Course here.
As many of you know, I came into this whole “make money online” thing in late February of this year. I had run across Agloco sometime around my birthday (Feb 13th) and it completely changed my entire perception of the internet.
Suddenly I became aware that every single thing on the internet was monetized. Odd statement, isn’t it? But when you are a casual surfer, do you really notice those things? I didn’t. I was aware of ads, yes, of course…but the extent of it all- the potential of it all- totally blew me away.
I just knew this was an opportunity for me. I’m no computer expert, didn’t know HTML or CSS or php or FTP (uh, but I knew MTv…lol!), but I could feel that if I was ever going to offer myself the chance at something better – this was it.
Make Money HOW?
I knew one person that might be able to explain this whole thing to me. He said two words….. “Clickbank” and “Warrior Forum”. He might as well have been talking in Romanian. Then he said one last thing – “Go to the Warrior Forum and READ”
By golly, I did! I read and read and read. I spent no less than 18 hours a day in front of my computer. Stress on the family life and personal life? You betcha! But in my mind, I was in “school” and I was learning something that would change my life.
I was right. Now, I’m far from a millionaire, but this is all really working. In the time it would take to conceive and birth a child, I have conceived and birthed my own online business.
Is it “time”?
My goal for Jan 1 is to have all this online business stuff OUT of my name and into a business entity. I guess I need to umbrella it all under one company (LLC) name?
This is where I need your help. I have been researching online trying to find others that have been where I am now. I need help with the business side of making money online. I want to know about setting up a business for someone who does what I do. Niche marketing, affiliate marketing, no inventory, some freelance work, etc.
I know I am not the only one. I read blogs of MANY folks who do what I do.
When was it “time”? How did you go about it?
If you don’t want to post a comment, email me – potpiegirl(at)potpieworld(dot)com.
I’d love to hear from you and would so appreciate any advice or insight.
I imagine this is the time that someone like me would appreciate a mentor. Someone who has “been there, done that”.
I think it’s time for me to take the training wheels off =)
