Review: Dave Nicholson Says What are the Simplest and Best Ways to Make Money Online

Well, What are Some of the Ways to Make Money Online, According to Dave Nicholson?

I can tell you upfront, from reading what Dave Nicholson has to say, a way to make money online isn’t spending your day reading blogs and flitting around Facebook and Twitter making comments…

Don’t know about you, but I put some thought into the comments I leave on others blogs and their posts that I read, Facebook and other Bloggers  Website included. For months now I’ve “played” the game of blogger.

As a result I used up all that creative energy that I formerly put into posting on my “sites” as I call them. Looking back I can see the error of my ways. No updates and a steady decline in what little traffic and authority I had built up.

Picture of World WordPress

WordPress is used all over the World

Just so you can take a look and decide for yourself, here is a small sample of some of my sites:

  • http://SkipperWorks.biz
  • http://SkipperWorks.com
  • http://ArthritisReview.net
  • http://SkippersBestBuy.com
  • http://SkippersBestBuy.biz
  • http://InternetMoneyStore.biz
  • http://sugarcontroldiet.info
  • http://SugarControlDiet.com

How to get Started All Wrong!

I didn’t set out to comment here and there and thereby gain back links to my own blog (actually just glossed over any mention of “back links” didn’t know what they were, didn’t care).

What I discovered was a treasure trove of information, offered freely and with good intentions by some blogger Super Stars (in my opinion).

I never commented except occasionally to say Thank You for some helpful information I found in someone’s post or page.

And since I was looking for some information and help in correcting some problems that started showing up on some of my “sites” started paying attention to people who knew a lot more than I did about what to do to fix things.

How I got to Where I am Today With My Help and of Course Google’s Birds

As I have noted before in another post, I started taking a John Thornhill course and acquired my very first Human comment.

This was on the “site” I was working on and the comment by none other than Sergio Felix  from http://marketingwithsergio.com/video-branding-101/ not his old Place of Business, but where he is now.

Note that Sergio has a background and education as an IT so his advice should be taken seriously!

Then followed.

After this  I  became acquainted with Barry Wells http://barry-wells.com/  who seemed to always have experience and a ready solution for many of my oops with WordPress that I was trying to solve!

Host Gator is very helpful, but as they are quick to tell you, they don’t support WordPress..talk to your website designer…(which is me, so talking to me wasn’t helpful).

How to end up without a working Blog!

  • So I continued on my merry way,
  • reading and commenting.
  • .Facebook,
  • Twitter and on a
  • growing list of favorite blogs,

but I started leaving something out:  Writing and posting on my own sites. 

This new direction, along with the continuing problems with my sites and spending hours doing repairs and endless chats with HG support,

left me without the motivation, creativity and Time needed to do what I should be doing to maintain my sites.

Where Did I Spend my Valuable Time?

http://adriennesmith.net/

http://www.dansumnerblog.com/

http://www.johnthornhill.com/blog/

I could acquire a list each day of ten or more other bloggers who had commented on these blogs with shared information that was useful to me.

But if all I’m doing is reading, learning and then commenting to show my appreciation for what I have learned….

there is no time left to implement what I have learned.

Of course Sergio and Barry were on this Must Do list (never made a list, just went where I wanted to).

For example, clicking on the above links to verify they work, I spent some of my valuable writing time reading and commenting on Dan’s post about

Here are the Top 10 Prioritizing Tips you don’t want to Miss!

http://marketingfromscratch.com/top-10-prioritising-tips-dont-want-miss/

And Adrienne’s Blog is loaded with her Thankful Thursday post which consists of  links to exciting things you need to know and put on or fix or update on  your blog….ooooh.

John Thornhill is a little behind..he was still on a rant about JVs that you promote for, but when you do a launch they somehow seem to be missing.

Well, JVs are  something to keep in mind for someone getting ready to do a launch, but I need something to launch… so it is filed in that dungeon of things I might need to know...

However John does have a pre launch check list that you can download that is Roast with the Gravy so if you are in that mode..check it out.

So since none of the above made any contribution to Making Money Online, but actually shows how to not make money or add value to your sites, lets get back to my review of Dave Nicholson’s 2008 offering.

So, How Do You Make Money Working on the Internet?

 

Dave has an h2 way down the page and this is how it reads:

What are the Simplest and Best Ways to Make Money Online

Dave Says:

I often get asked the question “how can I make money online”, the answer in short is to do a little work each day, creating, adding to and increasing your streams of income.

Great Tip, but it sounds like you already need a “stream” of income flowing!

OK, so where can you get started creating these ‘streams of income’?

Dave continued with his advice.

I have listed a few of what I consider the simplest and best ways for you to get started, don’t try to bite off more than you can chew, simply start with one method at a time and gradually increase after you feel you have completed one method to the best of your abilities.

Remember, these methods will possibly create you an income for many years to come, so keep that in mind when you are creating.

– See more at: http://www.dave-nicholson.com/blog/what-are-the-simplest-and-best-ways-to-make-money-online/#sthash.F9cHgteY.dpuf

Dave lists several methods along with a description that fills out and amplifies the information.
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Provide a Service
  • Social Networking
  • Advertising
  • Create Your Own Product

Then Dave goes on to give the Advice you need to pay attention to.

All of these methods will create a stream of income. 

He also believes it is smarter to have more than one stream of income.

But.  In order to make this work…pick one..Just ONE and try to implement it and get it going.

In other words, we are back to Focus and Prioritizing your goals, your work, your time management, your mindset…..

Straight from Dave Nicholson’s Mouth:

“Now take one of these methods at a time and try to implement it as best you can, try to do as much as you can yourself, that way you will learn more and it will save you money.”

So, what should you take away from this?

Number 1.  Don’t do what I did.
Number 2.  Do what Dave and just about any good Marketer will tell you to do.  (if you can’t remember, see above!)
What he is telling you to do, still works in 2014, 2015 just as well as it did in 2008, just update the methods a little here and there and
Most Important…Do It, because you can make money on the Internet.
From a Webinar I watched last night…45 minutes of continual talk.
The Gold?
Here it is:
to make money on the internet
all you need
1. product
2 converting page
3. targeted traffic: you need (according to the statistics) 100 real people
to look at your product
to get just 1 (one)
to buy.
So one more time
1. product
2. converting page
3. Targeted Traffic

Can you do this? 

Have you done this?
I’d like to know.   
Did any the above suggestions work for you?  Were any of them on the table when you were learning how to create an income for yourself by taking advantage of using a computer and the internet?

Share!

Now take one of these methods at a time and try to implement it as best you can, try to do as much as you can yourself, that way you will learn more and it will save you money. – See more at: http://www.dave-nicholson.com/blog/what-are-the-simplest-and-best-ways-to-make-money-online/#sthash.F9cHgteY.zG2gl7p8.dpuf

    Hey Carata,

    Blogging is a lot of hard work and anyone who thinks otherwise has got another think coming.

    Thank you for mentioning my blog and I do hope that others find it helpful because if you’re blogging to help you make money then there is a lot of stuff that we need to know.

    Like you, whenever my hosting service used to tell me to get with my developer I just laughed. Who the hell has a developer? I am the only one taking care of this blog people. Used to make me so mad.

    I hope you’ve gotten a lot out of what Dave had to share. I’ve been doing affiliate marketing for awhile but am in the process of creating my own product so I do hope that this will open so many more doors for me. That’s the plan at least.

    Thanks again and hope you’re enjoying your weekend.

    ~Adrienne

      Hi Adrienne,

      Blogging is hard work. Just spent the last two days writing and editing
      another article!
      Of all the things I have bought and used, I love Dave Nicholson’s
      programs..he knows what he is doing and always provides clear instructions
      especially in the videos. His secret, I think is making them short
      so they cover doing ONE task at a time.

      Hosting companies have become a joke!
      I think my biggest problem with mine is the instructions and video
      tutorials provided, because while everything is there,
      it is written in programming Geek, for the all knowing just needing a
      refresher, rather than someone like us…not trained in coding but
      managing out sites ourselves.

      Sharing what I’ve learned and where I’ve learned it has become part of
      my “give to your readers” even going so far
      as to add videos in various categories to my YouTube playlists.

      Often, knowledge is out there and free, sometimes not completely accurate,
      but finding the right source takes time and effort so getting a link to
      what you need right now is a Gift!

      Had a great rainy cold indoor weekend, but didn’t seem to
      get very much done. Gloom spreads! If you need any grub help
      working on your product, give me a yell!

      Come by for a visit again soon.

    Hi Carata,

    Blogging is hard work indeed! We need a plan, and have to stick to it. We must be consistent with putting out content. And of course, having our own personal blog is the best of all for branding.

    As I read of all that you went through, I think we all had to do some of that when first staring.

    But, I am happy for your following Dave. I totally agree that we have to do one thing at a time. We need to put our “blinders” on and keep at it.

    Can we make money online? Sure we can, but we do need a good marketing plan to do so. No, it is not easy to do and it requires much dedication and constant learning. But it can be done. That’s my two cents! 🙂

      Hi Donna,

      Totally agree with you..blogging is hard work. Finding a
      middle ground between keeping up to date with technology and
      learning, then implementing what you have learned gets more difficult
      every day!

      I guess we all have to learn in our own way. Often I can read a theory
      or concept and see how it would apply to what I am trying to do….but,
      (isn’t there always a but?) integrating it into daily tasks is something
      else.

      I’ve recently became more interested in marketing as it relates to selling
      and went looking for answers. Marketing is crucial, but as you said..it isn’t
      easy to do and just like blogging there is a perpetual learning curve.

      I guess the secret is to remember is that Learn and Earn is not the correct
      mantra. What works, I’m discovering is focus, plan and follow the plan!
      Implement step 1., step 2., and step 3. If that doesn’t work, find another plan!
      Just make sure that whatever you are trying to do: Complete it.
      No more half completed jobs.
      You can’t run water to the house if you stop digging the ditch before you reach
      the water meter and connect the pipes.
      Not exactly rocket science, but exactly what you need to keep in the forefront
      of your mind.

        Hi Again Cararta,

        Blogging is hard work, but since I have last commented on this post I’ve made so many changes. I blog once a week and take care of my comments and also go to their blogs as usual.

        But the difference now is since I’ve chosen to pick one thing and that was making a product, I am absorbed in marketing. I spend more time with my marketing hat on than my blogging hat.

        Dave’s advice is spot on!

        -Donna

        • Cararta on October 10, 2014

          Hi Donna,
          Very proud of you and Dave for your following through and completing the job.
          The very thing that the 97% never do, and then wonder why no results.

          Once you have the product, you are absolutely on
          target. Marketing and Traffic are all part of the business plan and must be produced
          on time and in sync to get the job done.
          Dave will never steer you wrong. Just don’t think I could do a product in 60 minutes!
          Keep up the good work, Donna…
          Focus, Focus, Focus…..

    Hey Cararta, thanks a ton for mentioning my blog here and about making money… I have found it is way easier to do consulting but to do that, you need to have a proven record with success first.

    The fastest way to reach that “proven record” milestone is by creating a product yourself.

    Sure, you may get commissions here and there from time to time from blogging alone but if that income is not something steady, then it’s not even a business, it’s just fly by money!

    Hope that helps and I know how frustrating can hosting companies be, I am currently paying top dollars for one hosting account (not HostGator though) only to find out I’m not covered against malware (something HG does for free).

    Cheers and hope you’re having a great day!

    Sergio Felix.

    • Cararta on June 21, 2014

      Hi Sergio,

      Thanks for the fly by! With all you have on your plate, you surprised me! Last
      I read you were hot and tired after running and then spending two hours waiting outside your home because you took the wrong keys with you when you went running.

      Blogging at first seemed rather simple, but it is much more fun when you get
      some feedback, occasionally.

      This blog is slanted more to the new kid on the block wanting some good tips
      like “Don’t do what I do, do what I say you should do!”

      I thought with the new year that I had things sorted out, then had another go around with Host Gator.
      One thing for sure, I have found,(with chat),some of the help available
      is more knowledgeable than others, so if I find I’m not getting anywhere, say thanks and leave and try again later.
      Usually that works and if it doesn’t go find a YouTube video!

      Some people are just great anyway. I wanted to set up cloud storage for my backups using Backup Creator and S3 turned into a monster.

      Reading my emails, (always several from Robert Plank…with his Wednesday
      webinars)…so I sent him an email and requested a video to set up cloud storage so I could use it with Backup Creator.
      (He always has that little note at the bottom..if you need something hit reply…so I did).

      Guess what, Backup Creator now has 1G of cloud storage, free and really hard to use…just click the button that says CLOUD and it is done.

      Guess this is a good hint for product owners who have a great product. It doesn’t hurt to surprise your users and make it better.

      Thanks again for the visit.
      Worked today on setting up a site so I can use it to store my membership site and downloads. Working on revamping a couple of give aways that are mine.
      Still not following Dave’s advice completely, but set aside a certain number of hours for this project and working on my diabetes site an hour or so each day.

      If you work long enough, you will eventually get there..but Smarter would probably be better!

    Hi,

    Indeed it is the quality of the content that will bring targeted visitors and thus can convert at a superb rate for the product we have to offer.

    To earn from ad, huge amount of traffic is necessary, to earn from few targeted people, one just needs a problem solving product and bang, you nail it.

    Have a great week.

    • Cararta on December 23, 2014

      Hi Rohan,
      We agree on one thing…the quality of your content is going to
      determine the quality of your visitor and make the decision for
      your: whether you succeed at blogging and marketing all on one
      site.
      All these “niche” sites are devoted to just one problem or solution
      which is fine sometimes, but don’t know about you..I’m always
      blessed with multiple problems.
