Web business idea

I know there are many internet marketers out there trying to make a killing but not making any headway. There is this post that came up on my comment here saying click, click, click you can generate so much sum of money.

So let me show you what they mean and how it works.
USD0.01 X 100,000,000 clicks = USD1mil
USD0.10X 10,000,000 clicks = USD1mil
USD1.00 X 1,000,000 clicks = USD1mil
USD10 X 100,000 clicks = USD1mil
USD100 X 10,000 clicks = USD1mil
USD1,000 X 1,000 clicks = USD1mil

Everybody happy become millionaires. Yippee!

Were if it that easy I've become a millionaire already. It is a simpleton idea. But the fact is where are you going to get those clicks?

The thing is they are all selling homogenous products. Which means if I'm selling sugar, you are selling sugar, everybody same-same and no USP (unique selling point), then you will have a hard time. If I do something interesting and sell organic sugar, then can jack up the price because there is something special about organic sugar, it is derived from plants grown organically and thus should not be contaminated by pesticides or other chemicals. Even then it is almost similar product. Slightly better USP.

On the other hand, if you can find some special niche, something that not many people wants to do, but something that you know very well, that's your USP. And how to achieve some success with it? Use SBI of course. It provides the tools on how to leverage what you know to create an online web business.

So far SBI has worked well for me. And so are my friends and many people. It is not a lazy-get-rich-quick system. It requires work on your part. If hardwork turns you off then don't read on. In fact don't read all those people selling ebooks about making it online. They are all the same with not much value in it. Get a real proven system like SBI.

By leveraging on what you know, you can create a niche area where you could either earn back from:

  • Google Adsense - the simplest earning model but requires a lot of hardwork to get website traffic
  • Get advertising sponsors - requires selling skill, but first your website must have traffic to show. Has a better income return from monthly renewals.
  • Sell tangible products - eg organic sugar
  • Sell intangible products - eg services
  • or a combination of tangible and intangible products

The monetizing model requires thought, and what works for one, may not work for another. But before it does so, you need to put up the website first and draw the traffic in with your well writing content geared for both humans and robots (for SEO purposes) but ultimately it should be written for people because that's where your main target should be.

Good luck!

Top ten irritating expression

This is something I should remember. Came across this top ten irritating expression in a newspaper about a research done in by Oxford University. Some of them actually sound quite cliche, we may have heard them and use them because it sounded interesting and unique but can be grating when applied to another fellow listener especially when it is directed at them.

Here's the list, try to avoid using them.

  1. At the end of the day
  2. Fairly unique
  3. I personally
  4. At this moment in time
  5. With all due respect
  6. Absolutely
  7. It's a nightmare
  8. Shouldn't of (this one grammatically incorrect, should be "shouldn't have")
  9. 24/7
  10. It's not rocket science
