Don't Quit Your Day Job Practice These 7 Steps First
You've been there; you know the euphoria of being free-spirited. Singing at the top of your lungs, you sound fabulous, you are hitting every note pitch perfect. At least you think you are. Walking on cloud nine (I'm walking on sunshine), and then your friend, family member, co-worker shat's you down.
Don't quit your day job.
Whether you sounded like Pavarotti or not, it was meant to be a joke.
But it proves to be unshakeable advice when reaching out for your dreams or that dream job, maybe your first venture as an entrepreneur.
With that warning now uttered, do not let it be the reason why you do not reach out for the ring of gold. Because one day you will be able to quit your day job and bask in the success of doing what you want.
Each day you put off doing the thing you always wanted to do is a day lost. It is just like saving, or investing, it is one day of lost interest and earning potential.
What if I fail, what if it does not work, what if, what if.
So what can you do now? How about a practice run.
Step 1 Let's solve a problem or answer a question, how about we work on something everyone is talking about, a vacuum very few people have filled.
Direct Internet Traffic
Easy eBook creation
What to watch on TV
How to make extra money
Choosing a side hustle
Raising smart money kids
How to tame your social media habits
What is cryptocurrency and how to profit from it
How to take advantage of the new tax plan
The alternative to Step 1, If you cannot come up with something unique, then copy something you like.
If you are a web surfer talk about your favorite websites, if you are a reader, your top ten list of favorite books, if you go to the movies every weekend, write a critique of the last five theatrical spectacles you have seen. Maybe you are a social media drama queen or king, then show others how to use social media.
Remember this is practice, I aim to show you how easy it is to get started without quitting your day job.
Step 2 Research you're new favorite pass time to see if it will hold your attention and the attention of others.
If you are already an expert on the topic, you are ahead of the class, but it is still recommended you research the subject to see what others know or do not know. Just in case you have to debunk another expert and cause a little controversy.
Step 3 Develop a name for your new favorite pass time. Make it easy for others to find it on the web.
Make the name short, catchy and memorable, give them something to talk about, it could become a household name.
Step 4 Create a home on the web for your surefire resolution to the thing that has plagued the world from its beginning.
It is recommended you buy and host a domain. You can get this done through bluehost.com, godaddy.com or another domain registrar or if you are low on cash than you can start with a blogger account from Google or another free blogger account like WordPress.
Step 5 Serve up some content, in the form of articles, pictures, videos, puzzles, whatever you choose making it appetizing to the mental palate. Do Not forget the most important reason why you are participating in this exercise to solve a problem, answer a question, or just to entertain.
If one sentence or a few video clips, or some thought-provoking images would captivate your audience and keep them entertained or informed, then you have done your job. However, on the internet, you will need loads of content so that the search engines will pick up the tracks you are laying down. The more you write, the more input that you provide, the more likely you will grow your audience.
Step 6 Get social, make contact with other professionals who have made a name for themselves as experts and influencers on the web. Do Not forget to reach out for support from family, friends, co-workers, and other entrepreneurs.
You will find your audience hanging out on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media sites.
You will also want to visit other blogs and sites, which are similar to your site. Get to know them, leave comments about their content, ask to borrow some of their data, become friends, share and share alike.
One thing to do for sure, ask if you can leave a link on your site referring to their website. Flattery is such a sweet compliment, and perhaps they will do the same for you.
Step 7 Monetize, connect with companies that pay you to promote their site, products, advertisements, credit cards, books, new ideas, inventions the list goes on.
Mega sites like Amazon, Google, Clickbank, and other affiliate sites are eager to use you to continue growing their real estate on the world wide web if you would like to know more about affiliate marketing just do a quick search. Note: do not get lost in information overload.
Another way to make money from your site is by selling other peoples stuff.
For instance your top ten list of favorite books. If you have signed up for affiliate marketing with Amazon, you can get links to those books insert them into your page. And when people click on the link you get paid. Amazon also will give you extra money if they buy something else while purchasing the book you suggested. This money making method will work with your top five movies you have seen in the past year. Even better if your favorite website author has a book, you guessed it get that Amazon link.
After practicing, you are well on your way to repeating this formula as many times as you like. You also can take on your lifelong dream; you know that thing you always wanted to do.
If you are successful, then you can ignore your friend, family or co-workers advice.
You can quit your day job.
