Friends are hard to come by. It’s especially difficult to find a friend online. As you work to grow you website, you’ll find that it helps to have like minded friends. Having friends can make your webmastering days go by a lot smoother. Having a solid network of friends can help you make money online. If you try to go solo, you will find that it’ll take more work, and you’ll waste more time.
Look at bloggerunleashed. His friends are grizz and court. That’s a nice three man team over there. They help each other get links and they share info with each other. They even develop web projects together. Having friends you can count on can increase your online earnings.
I was chatting with this guy for a couple of hours. I really thought that we had a connection and shared similar goals with our websites. I thought this chat was going to be one of many to come. We were talking about future projects and talking about the type of sites that we thought would make a lot of money. At the end of the conversation, he was trying to sell me something. That killed it right there.
I’m not hating on the fact that he was trying to make a sale. He has to eat right? Gotta make money somehow. And, he was doing what he does, trying to make money online. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. But, that’s why i don’t trust people online. Especially “make money online” types. It always seems like the conversation isn’t honest. It always seems like they tell me something just to make a sale or commission off of me. When you read “make money online” blogs, always ask yourself why they wrote that particular post. Was it a paid plug? Are they pushing an affiliate? The fact of the matter is, you’re NEVER going to get a honest post. We in the “make money online” niche are all hustlers.
When there’s money involved, all bets are off. There’s no loyalty or friendship. It’s business. How can you trust what someone says when they’re trying to sell you something?
When you set out to make some MMO friends, you have to look to your peers. Your best bet it to network with other noobies. Seek out bloggers who started at around the same time as you. Seek out bloggers who have built up their blogs to a level that is similar to yours.
Online friends can help you promote you site and contests. You guys can help each other obtain PR on the next update by linking to each other. Trying to learn everything by yourself can be hard, so set out to make a few good contacts. This will make it a lot easier to monetize your websites.
The best way to contact someone is by commenting on his or her blog. After a few useful comments, shoot that person an email. Don’t try to pitch them or sell them something. Just spark up a nice conversation or ask them a question. Doing this with a lot of blogs is a great way to spread out your network. The time you invest in doing this will pay off in the long run.
