Internet Marketing – What Goes Around Comes Around

Everything that you do on the Internet can link back to your ‘brand’ or domain name. If you are posting in business forums, social networks, blogs, or article directories using your domain name in your signature file or ‘author bio-box’, it will create back-links from that site to yours. Back-links show the search engines that you are engaged in your business so they do not hesitate to send their customers to your links.


The cycle continues as everything you do online is associated to you – for example you may establish yourself as an expert in your field if your articles and blog posts are informative, interesting, and hence have value. Note here that straight spam-type advertisements are never pleasant or attractive to anyone. It is not to say you can’t advertise or promote your business in your content, but it should be discreet and be in the context of information rather than ‘pushing’.

Another thing that goes around and will come around is your willingness to help others. Almost without a doubt someone helped you, whether it was free or not, you got the instructions and information you needed from a sponsor or mentor or other resource. If you participate in forums you may have received and given help when asked.

This help could be as simple as even just welcoming a newbie to the group. That helps them to feel confident that they are in a comfortable environment with like-minded ‘peers’ who will be of some kind of at least ‘moral’ support, if not direct assistance upon request. In turn that person will proudly assist someone else coming up behind them someday.

There really does seem to be something to the Biblical principle that when you give to others, you get twice as much in return – and in this case you will begin to be seen as an expert, coach or mentor. People will begin to look to you – rather than you having to chase them down to sell them something – they will want to know what you have to offer and what you have going on that they might work with you on.

Probably one of the most important situations where you should remember that ‘what goes around comes around’ is in being positive and supportive to people who are trying something new – who may be walking out on faith and not have a clue what they are doing or if they will succeed. Too many times so-called ‘loved ones’ can only provide negative feedback. They may have heard a rumor that so-and-so’s cousin’s brother-in-law’s nanny once lost money online so that naturally means that everything you see or do online will be a scam. NOT so.

People who are loved should be encouraged and given support and affirmation particularly when they are going out on a limb. If you consider them stupid or naive, then certainly warn them to be careful of who they do business with and remind them of the old adage that ‘if it sounds too good to be true it probably is’. Just don’t forget to encourage them by at least wishing them luck in their new endeavor. Know for a fact that Internet marketing is a legitimate way to earn money and many have been doing so for decades now.


Can’t Find a Job? Make Money At Home!

Long gone are the days where we could depend on finding a job automatically; or that people could just up and quit a job because they felt they could find something better — whether it was more money or more interesting, better location, people could pick and choose when it came to a job. Nowadays the people are more likely to just feel thankful that they have a job at all and learn to live with what they can’t change.


We never know what jobs will be cut and they don’t usually give a lot of warning so as to limit the ability to retaliate by sabotage, etc. It is becoming more and more common through a couple of the job recessions in recent decades, that even higher education does not make you immune to the cycle of losing a job and not finding a replacement anytime soon. The big difference is job elimination. It is not just people moving in and out, being promoted, demoted, retiring or whatever — the position is gone. Not being filled anymore – outsourced, off-shored, eliminated, merged, workforce reduced.

It is surprising then that more people do not see the Internet and making money at home as a viable alternative to depleting all of their reserves (savings, investments, etc) just to pay the bills while looking and looking for a job that is not there; going on many unfruitful interviews that are just a waste of time. It is sad but even people that are willing to take a step backwards in salary or title just to work are turned away because employers feel that they will leave if something more along their own line becomes available.

It is said when there are so many unemployed that if an employer was looking for a girl riding a purple horse with polka dots that one could be found; so there goes the angle of just giving the job to someone who needs it even if the qualifications are not exactly matched. It is really, really a ‘cruel world’ when it comes to being unemployed. That is precisely why people need to take control of their own destiny and create their own income.

There are so many things someone could do to earn money with their computer or otherwise from home. The possibilities are really limitless. If you take stock of all of your skills and experience, and even your interests, you can come up with several different ways to make money without investing much at all. The ideal time to investigate the possibilities is when you still have a job or at least when you have the time and some resources such as unemployment insurance and/or severance pay to tide you over.

It is important to take a few days just to get over the shock and resolve all the feelings you might be having if you suddenly find yourself without a job to go to Monday. It is best if you feel good about yourself and positive about your prospects so that you will be motivated to take swift action to land on your feet. If you are so inclined you might do both – interview for jobs and pursue starting your own business from home.

Any port in a storm, it would also be ideal if you could work temporary jobs as a consultant to stretch your unemployment insurance further, etc and this is another way you may find out about available jobs. Maybe you will decide to work part-time your first year or so of having your own home business. This is ideal because it is likely you won’t make money right away while you are developing your ideas. Whatever unfolds, just know that ‘when one door closes another one opens’. Make it a better one!


Don’t Just Work to Earn Money, Fight to Make a Profit

Making a profit is usually always beyond the level of income that you have with a job if you are an average person without a professional/academic degree. They paid the dues on the front-end and many struggled to go to school for years at great expense of both time and energy. Many times they had to have jobs that paid minimum wage.

We may have to work a little harder and a little longer and might never make as much, but no reason we can’t have enough or even plenty of money. We can, if we can find a way to have multiple streams of income which might ‘even out’ or equate to a decent amount of money when added together with our day job wages or salary.

Yes two jobs. Day job and night and weekend job online. You heard it was called a home office – when in fact it can become like living in an office. For example, like when you are having so much fun working at home that you find yourself logging back on at 12:00 midnight on Friday night to do something or other; great fun and then you will know what it means to live at your office.

This is ok at special times but it is probably actually healthier if you work at home the majority of the time, if you have a life offline. You can’t go home from the office when you work at home. So that is part of the discipline that you need to work at home – you need to be able to put things away as you would when you leave from your job.

No matter what, we need to have moderation in all things whether they are good things or not so much. You need to have time for you and your family if you have one. ‘You’ are very likely a human who needs rest and relaxation no matter how much responsibility you have.

It may help if we focus on trying to enjoy our work and feel thankful that we have it rather than to feel stress and fear about our financial situation which may be the reason we are working twice as hard as most people! It’s a whole different atmosphere obviously to be happy with what you are doing.

Never fear! The whole idea is someday you will be able to quit your day job! Not really realistic to quit too soon – be sure you can replace your salary and insurance benefits with your home business for a while before you take the leap. There are rarely any absolute guarantees like a set salary and paychecks at the same frequency. You never know. So that is why it is best to be sure you know what you are doing as far as you can see.
