In my opinion, greed helped us arrive at this point. Greed! We want bigger, better, faster and shinier. So there you sit reading this, questioning how to make money during the recession.
Lets start with how you’re not going to make money during the recession. You see if you can avoid the things that won’t help, you will be closer to discovering the things that will.
1st… Avoid all things shiny. Seriously. If you are searching for a way to make money online, and typing your question in a search engine you will run across many shiny websites. Glamorizing the flashy lifestyle, cars and checks.
Why? Because in the end, most of the people behind those sites need to make money. And how do they accomplish this? By making money off of you! So take time, research, ask questions then if you must go back to the shiny website and give it a shot.
2nd…You aren’t going to make money by not taking action. Sitting there, yeah you.. On your couch, chair or floor… you’re not going to make money during the recession because you aren’t taking action!
Now let’s talk about how you can make money during the recession.
1st… Determine how you want to make money. Do you really want to go out and compete with the thousands of others who are now looking for jobs? Or do you want to make money online?
How will you put together the puzzle pieces of your dreams? I make money online, and yes I am making money during the recession! The next 2 points will outline 2 free ways I make money online! You got it, Free!
2nd… Article Marketing. You see this, this page your reading.. It’s article marketing. You see I find something I have a passion for and write an article around it. If you are reading this thinking I can’t do that, let me ask you how many conversations do you have in a day? How many e-mails do you send a week? It’s easier to complete those two tasks because you are making conversation with friends. Treat article marketing the same. Find something your passionate about and write about it. If you work hard, you will make money.
3rd… Blog. That’s right!… This one is so easy, and there are plenty of sites that help you set up a blog that are free. Why is this one easy? Because the conversations that I convert into articles… well I just mash them up a bit more and put them on my blog.
Now you have the meat and potatoes of what I do. So what are you going to do with it?
Remember.. Stop buying into the shiny things online, start investing in something real! No one can promise you how much you will make, but in the right community with the right support many will help you get there!
