Going Grey .... "Grey Hat" that is

So as you all can see, it's been awhile since I last posted.  The reason?  I've come across some leaked information, WSOs from the warrior forum, and I've  been thinking about going grey - Grey Hat, that is.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the terms White Hat, Black Hat, and Grey Hat, let me break it down (taken from Wikipedia):

"White Hat"  -  The term "white hat" in Internet slang refers to an ethical hacker . . . 
"Black Hat"  - black hat is the villain or bad guy; phrase is often used figuratively, especially in computing slang, where it refers to a computer security hacker who breaks into networks or computers, or creates computer viruses.
"Grey Hat"  - grey hat, in the hacking community, refers to a skilled hacker whose activities fall somewhere between white and black hat hackers on a variety of spectra. It may relate to whether they sometimes arguably act illegally, though in good will, or to show how they disclose vulnerabilities. They usually do not hack for personal gain or have malicious intentions, but may be prepared to technically commit crimes during the course of their technological exploits in order to achieve better security.

Now I, in no way, could really be called a "Hacker", in fact to apply that term to me is laughable.  It's just that I've learned a few methods over the years that have allowed me access to some places, items, and information.  I've just got one of those curious minds that wants to know EVERYTHING.  And nowadays, with a few technical skills and internet access, you can get information on absolutely anything you have a desire to learn about.

So back to why I haven't posted in awhile.  I've come across literally hundreds of WSOs that have been posted online, and have been brainstorming on how to capitalize on this.  I am an internet entrepreneur afterall.  I've been researching the law as it relates to copyright infringement, reading about the DMCA and how it all works.  As far as I understand it, if I am just providing links to where the info is and not actually hosting files, I am not in violation of any laws.  This move is controversial and I'm hesitant to take the leap, but desperate times demand I at least think about it.  


Stay tuned for more details.

Becoming an internet entrepreneur

Whew ... This is harder than I thought it would be.  There are so many ways to make money online, I find myself getting sidetracked and chasing rabbits down paths that I wouldn't normally take.  Shortcuts for getting members to opt in, setting up an autoblog, viral links for traffic . . .  It's so easy to lose focus when you're bombarded with eye-catching, emotion grabbing headlines that promise to fulfill your deep desire to become a successful internet entrepreneur "Instantly" and just by following "these simple steps."  I've realized that I'm putting the cart before the horse.  I'm nowhere close to having my site up and running yet I'm already looking at ways to get traffic to it, lol.  "Whoa there, girlfriend!"  Reality check.

Do I want to make money?  Of course.  Would it be helpful to me if I could have that money flowing into my account next week?  Absolutely!  But more than that, I want to create something useful.  And the reality of that is, it's going to take a little time.  Especially since I have an offline job.

So an update on my site - I've managed to create a logo, set up a landing page, opt-in page, and thank you page.  On the back end, I'm fiddling around with autoresponders, different themes for the storefront, and membership software.  I've been working 12 hour days for the last two weeks.  Since I'm a one man, excuse me, "one woman" show, and am learning as I go, there is a lot of redundancy and re-doing things.  This, I suppose, is why the shortcuts are sooo enticing.  For now, I just don't want to go there.

My mantra - "Live and learn.  Life is good.  Accelerate out of the curves!"

Guides to Internet Income site update

Well things are going awfully slow with Guides to Internet Income.com.  Most of the problem lies in the fact that I'm learning as I go.  I suppose I could pay someone to get it up and running, but in the end, I want to be able to say I did it on my own.  You know, like that guy Chris Farrell.  Actually, I don't know if he did it all on his own but I've been following him since he started years ago, about the same time I did in 2007 or 2008.  Back then, he didn't have a membership site and his information was free.  In fact, I joined his mailing list all those years ago and still have the Success Grenades he sent out.  I even have his "Create Your First Website By 3:45 This Afternoon eBook." 

Lol, well I didn't set out to promote Mr. Farrell, but it looks like that's exactly what I've done hahaha.  That's ok, like I said, I've been following him since he started and am more than comfortable recommending him.  Not only was he generous with his information, but he also has a great teaching style that newbies can understand.

Back to the grind ....

Ooo, I just had a great idea!  I have giveaway rights to "Create Your First Website By 3:45 This Afternoon eBook"  If you sign up to the Guides to Internet Income email list, I'll give you access to Mr. Farrell's guide free!  Eventually, I'll have lots of other ebooks just like it on the site so if you're looking for information on making money online, you'll want to be on the email list.

Now I have to go figure out how to set up my autoresponder, lol.  For now, just send an email to admin@guidestointernetincome.com with a request to be added and I'll email you back with a link to the ebook.

TTFN,

SELLING ON EBAY

The Author of this post is Solomon Dejesus

I have been using my 4g wireless internet to make some extra money. I have always liked to shop on Ebay and have found some really cool things, but I got inspired last month to start selling on Ebay. My sister, who knows how much I love it, gave me a “Ebay for Dummies” book. I chuckled when she gave it to me because I know everything about buying things on Ebay, so I thought that it was kind of a gag gift. She said, “no silly, its for you to learn how to sell things on Ebay!” I had never really thought about selling things on there. I decided to read the book because I could use a little extra money. It was a quick read, with nothing to do over the holidays, I got through it in two days. Then, I started poking around the house, looking for things to sell. Once I got started and made my first few bucks, I was hooked. So in the last three weeks, just selling clothes that I don’t wear anymore, I have made five hundred dollars! It is really so easy, I should have been selling things on Ebay a long time ago!

Getting Back in the Game


Hello all! So it looks to be about 3 years since I last blogged, lol. Unfortunately my entrepreneurial journey was sidetracked once I got a job in the offline world. Work and kids and life in general took over. But I am back now, and with a vengeance! You see, my interest in making money online never went away, and every now and then, I would scour the internet for information on affiliate marketing, Google AdWords, building a website, etc.. I've accumulated a massive amount of information related to making money online and I'm determined to take action on what I've learned.

I'm excited to be back in the online rat race of making money online! Lace up your shoes and let's see where this journey takes us :-)

Internet Income Success

Having jumped into the business of making money online, I've discovered that the single most important factor to success is gaining visibility for your website. Obviously, no matter what you're selling or promoting, you can't close the deal if you don't have people visiting your site. Getting that much needed traffic can be done on your own, but it takes lots of time and energy just to learn the basics of getting your site to the top of search engine listings. Since time is money, you may be better off hiring a company that offers internet marketing services or specializes in search engine positioning to do that all important keyword optimization for you.

One such company is Customer Magnetism. Along with advertising services, this company also offers programs to help build links to your site. Having high ranking, quality websites pointing to your site improves your position on the search engines because your pages score more points in the algorithms that are used to rank them. Customer Magnetism also has a complete pay per click management option that can take over the process of advertising your site online for you.

Want to learn how to do it yourself? Customer Magnetism offers a one day search engine optimization training seminar that can help you learn all about Google AdWords, how to generate traffic to your site, and how to build links to relevant websites.

Bottom line, whether you do it yourself or hire someone to do it for you, if you're serious about internet income success, you've got to get your site seen!
