Helping You Make the Best Decisions

Turn Something You Enjoy Into a Cash Cow

Anything you enjoy doing can be turned into a money making project if you are willing to employ the right management rules and tools. If you really enjoy what you’re doing, it’s no longer a job. All you need to do is think of something you’re good at, that you enjoy doing and how it can become profitable. Talk to other people about it and brainstorm together to come up with unique ideas.

If you’re good at gardening and have a green thumb and can grow just about anything, then you can write about it, offer discounts on products that people need for gardening, or link up to an affiliate program a few gardening stores online. Then set up an autoresponder with a series of e-mails that teach people how to do what you’re doing. Write about the different plants/flowers/vegetables or whatever you are growing in your garden and how much water they need, how much sunlight, etc… and offer people a nice discount on the tools they need, seeds, bulbs, or whatever else for the project.

If you’re not a good writer but you have the skills or expertise about a certain subject, you can borrow the writing skills of someone else and still get the same effect. Look up some interesting articles on your subject and ask permission from the author to borrow them for use in your publication. Then just copy and paste the articles, including information about the author. Then link to the same types of things that people need to do these projects from affiliate programs. This will give people a reason to click on the links and buy the products you’re selling.

This can work with most any subject you choose. For instance, if you’re a sports enthusiast, write about your favorite teams, then link to the team t-shirts, caps, and other products that are hot sellers for the particular team or sport you’re writing about.

If your favorite sport is golf, link to products that golfers need and use.

There’s no end to the amount of things you can write a newsletter about and it will appeal to a certain market of people who are looking for this type of thing in search engines. So try to make your topics relevant and links need to be keywords that are likely to be used when people do their searches.

Then once you set up your email newsletter, set up a webpage for people to sign up and get it. Tell what the newsletter is about and how it will benefit the people and put a webform on the page from your autoresponder program so that they can sign up and you’ll get the leads when they do.

Then make sure that you only send what the newsletter is about to these people. Don’t send them emails about birds if the newsletter is about bees.

If you need help in doing this, please feel free to make a comment and ask. I’ll be more than happy to help you get started.
