There’s something funny about making your first $1000 online.
The rush. The dopamine. The uncontrollable happiness.
This is feeling is only surpassed by what you felt when you made your first $100.
And this doesn’t even come close to the feeling of making your first dollar online.
I’ve been a web designer for more than 10 years.
I’ve been involved in massive projects, and still, none of them made me feel as I did when I got my first $100 and $1000 doing online business.
Funny how that works.
There’s a simple way to get your first $1000, by the way.
You see, there’s a process behind it.
And it all starts with making the decision to earn money online.
There is a caveat though.
You need a skill or a product you can sell.
Most skills are marketable online. And even if they weren’t 100% compatible with online business, you could always find a sales angle to make them sexy for your client’s eye.
The simple way to start your online business
First, you need to select a hungry market.
The hungrier markets are:
Second, you need to create an offer.
If you’re a web designer, offer them a webpage.
If you’re into financial consulting, offer a fancy way to control money.
If you’re into fitness, keep it simple with a “before and after” pictures, then sell some consulting or a short ebook.
The trick is to keep things simple at first.
What if I’m into chemistry? Some chemists know how to make candles and soaps. Make them and sell them to the Health, Wealth, and Relationships markets.
“Dude, what are you talking about?”
Bear with me.
Imagine you’re a chemist and that you want to start selling candles.
How would you sell your candles to the different markets?
It’s all in the wording.
Health → Heavenly Touch: candles for relaxing with lavender and chamomile
Wealth → Touch of Gold: hand-made abundance candles
Relationships → The Flame: kinky candles to spice up your sex life
Let me repeat, It’s all in the wording.
So, I’ll end this post with a quick challenge for you.
- Write down 3 of your best skills.
- Choose the one you like the most (flip a coin if you can’t decide)
- Slap a price tag on a 3 tier offer
Here’s the dirty little secret about making your first $1000 online:
You have to be a shameless MOFO.
Stop caring about what people will think if you send them a direct message, or send them an email out of the blue.
You won’t see their reaction once you put a target on their back.
So it’s easier on your ego.
You see, you need to promote your offers. This is the only way to make money online. Promote, promote, promote.
Put your ego aside and post your offers EVERYWHERE.
Then, and only then, people will start throwing money at your piggy bank.
BTW, here’s a second little secret: start small.
Get your first $100 first.
My first experience with making money online was with Amazon Affiliates. I got $3.75. I jumped out of my chair to tell my wife about this ground-breaking achievement. $3.75, fam.
And that’s all it took me to decide on pursuing much, much more.
