You can use the internet to become financially resilient.

What does it take to make money online and why would I want to?

Okay so you need money now. Your best approach is probably to get a second job. Developing a business in creating an income from it will take time, patience and a lot of consistent effort.

What are the pros and cons of that new job. Obviously the pros of being able to pay your bills. Because working 12 to 16 hours a day for someone else’s dreams.

In my opinion, a job is for survival and a business of your own can enable you to live the life of your dreams. Keep your job until your business can support you. Then you will have the option of quitting your job or if your job is consistent with your values and carrying you forward toward your goals keep your job and you have double your income.

The reason most people do not start their own business is because they do not have the time and money it needed to start a traditional business. The Internet changes the business paradigm from brick-and-mortar to work-from-anywhere you have an Internet connection in a telephone.

It is no possible to create a business working a few hours a week and having no more expenses than a computer and a telephone. Once you have the equipment there are many ways to make money online.

You can sell other peoples products for a commission. You can sell your own products for profit, or you can join a multilevel marketing company and leverage the Internet to build your downline. A business using this model can be set up for very little cost and almost no monthly overhead.

What do you need to get started? You need a website and you need to know how to promote it.

I created a training module hosted at Wealthy Affiliates to help people understand how to create and promote an effective website. Click here for more information.

Combine this training module with the wealthy affiliate free class on developing and promoting a website and you’ll be well on your way to having an independent income based on your WordPress website.

Your internet business

Leverage the Internet to create a wor–from–anywhere business. You will need:

1. A website and/or a blog

2. An opt in e-mail list and autoresponder

3. A virtual conference room for a webinar

4. Direct mail will help you connect with your customers.

If you subscribed to these services ala carte it will cost you close to $500 a month. At GVO/PureLeverage, their marketing suite will cost you $24.95 per month. And, as part of the service, they provide outstanding training in both how to use the tools and how to market on the Internet.

Don’t neglect direct mail in your marketing plan. Most bulk mail goes in the waste basket. A greeting card with a first-class stamp gets opened and if it contains a sincere thank you it will set you apart from the crowd.
