Every once in a while I’ll come across a comment or an email asking me to stop writing about my personal ramblings and stick to making money online posts because that’s what I’m good at and that is what the readers want to learn. They want me to reveal to them the secret formula that will unleash all the Internet riches. They don’t want to know what I had for lunch or dinner.
There Is No Secret Formula
There are people who will go around reading every blog on making money online and buy any ebook on the same topic in the hopes of finding that secret formula that will make them rich. I hate to break it to them but there is no secret formula.
Take a look at the diet industry. People spend billions on diet programs, books, videos, etc. hoping to find that secret formula to help them lose weight and keep it off. The formula is no secret and can be summed up in four words: Eat less, workout more. Pretty simple, isn’t it? How many books and programs do you have to buy before you figure out all they’re telling you to do is to eat less and workout more?
Making money online can summed up in four words as well: Get traffic, optimize ads. There. I’ve just given you the secret formula to getting rich on the internet. Every single post that I make about making money online either deals with getting traffic or optimizing ads. If you can build traffic and optimize your ads for maximum revenue, you’re on your way to becoming rich.
Everything I do on this blog helps to either build traffic or optimize the ads. And that is why you will see posts about what I had for lunch. It builds traffic.
