PPC Tips Written by 2

As many of you know, all of last week and part of the week before I was in Hawaii on vacation. Hawaii is one of my favorite places on earth to visit now.  This was my first time visiting the island.  I learned a lot on this trip that will help me in the future to live the type of life that I want to be living.  I want to be that guy on the beach that checks in with work from his laptop while sipping a mojito. Below are some of the lessons learned on my trip.

Online Marketing Is Easy

Anytime I talk with anyone and tell them I work from home, they all get jealous.  They tell me all the things that they would do and the type of life that they would live. Everyone I know wants to work and home and believes that if they do that, that they will have everything made.  It’s not that case at all.  Typically I work longer hours then I ever did when I worked a 9-5 job.  I get up 30 min earlier, no commute time and typically work an hour past when I normally would have worked.  It’s not all it’s cracked up to be.  I will admit one thing though.  It’s not the hardest thing to do in the world.  Really anyone can learn to do online marketing, you just have to be willing to bust your butt and sell it.  That’s the hard part, selling what you’re doing.

3 Posts A Day Rule

Everyone asks me how they can make money Blogging.  I simply tell them, write 3 posts a day, everyday about something you love doing. Within 1 years time you will become an expert in that field online.  Keep in mind, this isn’t for all niches but most.  It’s really not that hard, blog your heart out.  You should be blogging 500-700 words per article.  It takes a bit of time, if I ever get bored and can’t think of something, I go to a competitors blog for different tips that I can write on and make better.  You can become the best at what you do.  Best of all, you can do this while working your current job.

Make sure you’re blogging about something you love doing and are passionate about or you will get bored and quit after a couple weeks.  It takes a lot of time to be blogging this much.  It takes patience.  You won’t have anyone visit your blog for the first 3 months.  Not one comment for your first 6 months.  It’s ok, people will start to read and comment within time.  Make sure you have Google Analytics installed on your blog so that you can see how many visitors are coming to your site.

Have Good Friends

While I was in Hawaii I met up with a good friend of mine in the online marketing world.  AdHustler (Brandon Hoffman) is also an online marketer.  He was in Hawaii with his wife but willing to drop what he was doing to come say hi.  It’s times like this when you know who your real friends are.  I don’t see him that often, I personally have never done any business with him, only hung out with him a couple times but I still consider him my friend.  Meeting with friends like this, either on vacation or just dropping by is a blast to do and will help you further your online skills.

Live The Life You Want

If you want to live the life, you need to just go out there and live it.  No one is telling you that you need to stay at that job that you hate.  Go out there and learn a new skill.  You can do this working from your current job.  PPC isn’t the hardest thing to learn in the world though it takes a bit of practice and time to get better at it.  Tons of time to master.  If you want to work from home, learn online marketing and find a job that will allow you to work from home 24/7.  Live the life you want, it may take a year of putting in extra hours at your current job but it will happen.  Keep it up, even I am working at this.

    I really like this article John and hoped you had a great time in Hawaii.
    I love your dream of being that ‘guy on the beach that checks in with work from his laptop while sipping a mojito’.
    My dream is to be that guy blogging (like you said, three posts a day) from his balcony in his house in Monaco looking over a blue sea.

    Anyway, I think this post describes a great structure for anyone wanting to be a full time blogger. Great advice.
