Here’s a question I get asked a lot. “What can I do to increase my income?” Fair enough question. Here’s the obvious answer.
Do more stuff.
Yeah, it’s kind of a duh statement, but it’s true. And guess what? You can never do enough stuff. There is always something more that you can do. In this article, what I’m going to do is share with you just a few things that I do to increase my income. Some of these work on the spot and some work through time. The key is to take action and always think about what more you can do.
First thing I do is look at whatever I’m promoting at the time and see if I can do some extra promotion. For example. I currently have a special offer running at a forum that was on page 3 of the ads. Sales were slowing down considerably. So what I did was pay an additional posting fee to get the ad back to page 1. After I did this, sales started picking up again, thus increasing my income considerably. Considering the posting fee was only $20, this was more than worth doing.
I might also look at my current products, see what I’m not promoting as much in certain places, such as at message boards, and post a few ads for the product there. Usually, I’ll find that this post will result in a few sales that I normally wouldn’t have gotten. This works very well when you offer people free reports. People love free reports. If you give these away in exchange for building your list, you can make lots of money down the road.
Another thing I’ll do is think about what new products I can create. Every product that you put out there is another product that you can sell and make a profit on. Product creation is not hard. All you need is a program to type into and something to turn that report into a PDF. Open Office, which is free, can do this instantly. I’ve churned out products that have made me $2,000 in just one day.
Another great way to make some extra income is through freelancing. You’ll be surprised how many people are looking for others to do things for them like article writing, copywriting, programming and so on. If you have any of these skills, you can make thousands of dollars a month as a freelancer.
If you put your mind to it, you can bank an extra $2,000 to $3,000 every month, just by going the extra mile.
