After my last post, I had a lot of emails asking for more information about what steps you need to take to get a website or blog making good money online.
There is so much information available about internet marketing and making money online that it can get a bit confusing and very hard to know where to start.
But it is certainly a skill worth learning – I absolutely love working from home and making a living by providing people with great information. There is a huge amount of money spent online every day, and with the right knowledge and a willingness to have a go, you can start bringing some of it into your life and your bank account too!
Through my experiences in starting up blogs and websites and writing my books, I have realised that there is just one simple key to succeeding in making money online – and that is to take things one a step at a time.
If you bombard yourself with all the information available all at once, it just gets overwhelming and a bit stressful (I know because I did that too…). I learned a lot from an amazing Australian couple who run workshops here teaching the basics of internet marketing, if you are from Australia drop me an email and I can get you into one of their workshops as my guest (the tickets are usually around $2,000) – but this won’t help if you are living anywhere else in the world!
So I thought I would also let you know about another amazing couple I recently found who teach internet marketing one step at a time. Judith and Jim are psychologists and a husband and wife team who wanted to get their business online, but had no idea how. When they started out, they found all the high-tech information from the internet "gurus" very confusing and frustrating, so they created a very simple, step-by-step system for learning the basics of online business and internet marketing.
This is the kind of thing that everyone wishes they had known about when they first started – it is a program that will take you from complete beginner to making your very first dollar online. It’s even good if you have a bit of knowledge but are not sure the best way to move forward.
So if you would really like to learn step-by-step how to start making money online, both with your knitting site and other websites, then this is definitely worth checking out – it’s not cheap, but it’s worth the investment if you are serious about making some money from home.
Let me know if you have any other questions about setting up and marketing your knitting or crochet website – I’m happy to help!
