Knowledge is power. The one thing people don’t understand is that you can make some good money off of what you already know. Another thing they don’t know, is that you can do it online.
You don’t need to be a teacher and you definitely don’t need to be smart. I am far from being the smartest in my class and I actually went a couple of extra innings in high school, if you know what I mean.
So How do You Make Money Selling Information?
You blog. I know it sounds a bit on the crazy side, but this is really the best way to sell that knowledge you already possess.
Not only is it most profitable, but it is also something that can be fun. Not many people can say that they actually love what they do and not a lot of people can say they make enough money to do whatever they want.
From a ground pounding infantryman, to a successful online blogger. Yup, that’s how my life took a turn (for the better) and what I do for a living these days.
I make money giving people information. They pay me (not literally) to tell them what they want or need to know.
Let Me Ask You This…
This may be somewhat of a “stupid” question, but have you “Googled” anything in your life? Chances are that you most likely have.
Just imagine, there are millions of people doing the same exact thing every single day. Most of the time, it it usually in the form of a question looking for some type of information.
“How to ride a bike”
“Where to find the best pizza”
Whether it be on how to ride that bike or a simple review of a product, there is a way for you to make money. Doing product reviews is one of the best ways to do this as people are always looking for more information on products before they pull the trigger.
What’s even crazier is the fact that you probably made someone else money on the other side of that search.
Yup, Someone Made Money
If you can put some great marketing skills into a blog, you can really make thousands upon thousands of dollars just by providing other people with the information they are looking for.
The internet is truly an amazing tool and I don’t mean just because Facebook was invented, but because there are billions of dollars being spent every single year.
Even if you got a tiny bit of that market, you could make some life changing income. There is really more than enough money to be made online, so why not tap into it?
Help Before You Get Paid
Too many people come into this business with the sole purpose of making money. Yes, that is what our main goal is, but you need to focus on actually helping someone before you start seeing dollar signs.
People are looking for answers to their problems and just like how they will trust you, Google needs to trust you in that same way.
Will you provide them with the information they need or are you just trying to sell them something? Anyone can and will see right through you and so will Google. Google doesn’t trust you, you don’t make money.
Now you’re probably thinking that you need to have some type of educated answer and you need to know exactly what you are talking about, but that’s not the case.
It all Starts With a Passion
What truly interests you? What are you interested in learning more about? This is the type of stuff you need to ask yourself before you start passing out information online and before you create your first blog.
If you are interested in surfing, there is always someone looking for information. Gardening? There are millions of people looking for stuff related to that too.
The “trick” to making money with your information is to give it on something you are actually really, really interested in.
Not only will you like what you do, but you can go on for days talking about it. Remember now, you are giving out information that people are already looking for, so there is no need to overthink anything.
With tools like Jaaxy, you get to see exactly what people are searching and put out information about that search.
So How do You Make Money?
It all starts with your blog. Once you have that setup, you can start worrying about monetizing things and the make money part will be sure to follow.
From putting ads (like you see all the time), to using affiliate links, there are many ways from which you can make money with your information.
By providing them with the information they need, you can throw in recommendations to products or get paid when they click on and advertisement on your site.
I always recommend a program called the Wealthy Affiliate for anyone looking to make money online. They have taught me everything I know about running an online business and they are also the same reason I am a stay at home dad.
Everyone wants to make money online but no one wants to put in the work that comes with the lifestyle. If you plan on doing any type of selling online, please know that it does require you to actually do something.
Online millionaires were not made from them doing nothing. Just like any other job out there, they put in the work to get to where they are.
I have only been in this business for less than 3 years, but I make more money than most of the people I know. It is only a matter of time before I can finally say that I am an online millionaire. Can’t wait!
Until then, I hope you have learned a thing or two about selling information online. If you have any questions, please do leave them in the comments section below.
Until next time, happy blogging!
