The time is now to make money online

make money online like ashley juddI started blogging in Late October of 2007. I look back and wish i started sooner. I actually wish that i got into domaining in 2007. I probably would have tens of thousands of dollars worth of domains if i researched it back then. Anyway, the moral of this story is this. You can always say, “shouda, coulda, woulda.” The internet gives birth to new millionaires every day. More and more people all across the globe are using the internet. More and more businesses are setting up an online presence. Iphones and Blackberries are making it easier to access the web wherever you are. This is all great news for webmasters. If you don’t already have a website, you better set one up. The time is now to make money online. You don’t want to miss out on the next gold rush. 3 years down the line, you don’t want to say, i “shoulda, coulda, woulda.”

I work as a real estate developer. I actually have my own LLC. I find investors for small and medium residential projects. Mostly condos. Real estate is always a solid investment, when you look at the long term. Right now, prices are shitty. Remember a few years ago when everybody wanted to buy a property? So many magazine articles and features about it back then. Now, you only read about how bad things are. Like most markets, it swings. Even in tough times, if you have a long term strategy, you will make money. Only problem with real estate is that the mortgage can get pretty expensive. You need to have a lot of cash in the bank or a cash cow of a business to keep it running smoothly. But 7 years down the line, people who didn’t buy real estate will be saying “shouda, coulda, woulda.”

Do you realize what prices were in Los Angeles 7 years ago? New York? Tokyo? Seoul? It only goes up! Websites are virtual real estate properties. If you own a nice domain with a nice website on it, that piece of virtual real estate will only go up. The good side is that unlike real estate, websites are cheap to maintain. The bad side is that this market changes really fast. A hot technology or property now, can be a dud 6 months from now.

I’m a businessman. I tried working the 9-5 right out of college and realized that it wasn’t for me. I have a lot of friends who are salary men and they don’t understand me. Business is not for everyone, but web business is a bit different. It doesn’t require you to bet it all. You don’t need a lot of capital to start up a website. Less risk makes it possible to try it on the side, instead of betting it all fulltime.

I think the biggest hurdle for people is that they don’t know how to start. I have a few friends who are always talking about their business ideas. A few of them even write up business plans, but they don’t know how to start it. Maybe i am stupid, but i think that the best way to start is by jumping in. Even if you don’t know all the facts, just do it. With businesses that require a lot of capital, this could become like gambling. But with a website, it’s perfect. You try it and if it was a stupid idea, you don’t lose much. But you gain a lot of experience and you probably learned something new by trying to execute your stupid idea. The more you wait on your idea, the most likely that someone else will do something similar. Even if there are sites similar to your idea, do it anyway. The time is now to make money online. You don’t want to be that guy who keeps bitching about how he “shouda, coulda, woulda.”

    I definitely agree with “taking action” advice, but even when you do if you don’t have a plan of action and some guidance you may not achieve the success you desire. Learning from someone who has discovered the secrets to earning millions from scratch is invaluable. Learning from someone who has broken down the barriers to success is vital. In so many ways these are great times we live in because of the opportunities the internet is providing people to earn a great income where in the past entrepreneurs had no choice but a “brick and mortar” business. Learn the simple reason some do not achieve the level of success they desire, and the secret to achieving that success at http://amilliondollardesire.com. We would love to send you a free CD that has changed so many lives.

    emsuccess- im a do it yourself type of guy, so i like to do things myself. the only problem that i see with paying for guidance is that there are a lot of scams out there. And, by paying for such services, you are increasing the investment of you website. I would recommend noobies to start a small site by themselves first. Then, after they feel comfortable, pay for stuff. In the beginning, the only thing people should pay for is domain and hosting. 😉

    You definitely should just jump in and start blogging or developing websites. In the beginning it is super hard to figure out which systems are legit or pure scams, but don’t let that stop you from trying. I am slowly begin to learn that being cautious and treading lightly is the best noob approach. The scammers always seem nice when they sense that you have the cash.

    Wow. All I have to say is what a coincidence. A few months ago a really innovative idea popped into my head. This idea is practical, web-based, wouldn’t cost much to invest in, with the potential to make great revenue. I have researched ever since then and found no existing idea on the web. I have everything I need to start it, but something keeps holding me back. I’m 19, inexperienced, and afraid that if I execute the idea, someone older, wiser, with more resources will snatch it away in a split second. So my mind has been back and forth and always undecided. One day I’m ready to to send a business proposal to as many relevant companies as I can, to try to sell the idea and leave it behind me. Another day I feel like I should do it on my own. Somedays, I feel like neither. But today in particular, I decided that I think I should go for it and execute it. What’s strange is that today I somehow stumbled across this blog post afterwards. Im not superstitious, but when I read that last paragraph of this post (about ideas) I think it is a sign. Kind of strange. I want to thank you for your encouraging post. It really made me think. And sorry for the long ebook that I’ve just written in your comments. LOL

    acacia- it’s a sign! i say go with your gut instinct. just jump and see where you land. if you feel strongly for this idea, your passion will lead it somewhere. Even if it doesn’t make a lot of money for you, it could be a stepping stone to bigger and brighter things. your comment put a smile on my face. i get ideas all the time about different types of websites. i should follow my own advice and move forward with them. your comment inspired me to give it a try.

    fyi, 19 is like 33 in webmaster years. look at the internet millionaire/billionaires. they are all young dude. go get em tiger. be sure to let me know how it’s going. 😉 btw, i hate ebooks, but the one u left on this blogpost was awesome!

    What you said is reality, that this is the right time to start doing business online.

    Millions are using the net, and most people are using the net for everything they wanted in life, even their dream life.

    And… your site is one of them that encourages good life doing business on the net.

    More Power…

    hey bloggernoob. nice site. great shot of Ashley Judd. i’m fascinated by your use of totally unrelated visuals to your posts. is the theory that sex sells?

    seo for blogging- yeah. when you think about it. there are still a lot of opportunities. My friends are all young working professionals. They’re accountants, real estate brokers, bankers, small business owners, designers, etc. Not a single one of them do web business. This ship hasn’t sailed yet. In the near future, more and more people will try web business. Time is still good to jump in now. It’s never too late. 😉

    feron- thanks feron! When you look at this industry, it’s still in it’s infancy. Web business isn’t even 20 years old yet.

    scott lackey- yeah, ashley is a rare beauty. she is both sexy and beautiful. she’s cute and hot. She’s a pure and classic beauty. yup, the noob is a big believer in sex. it’s the currency of the world.

    kranjcarz- you’re right. making money online is far from easy. But, as far as business, it’s a cheaper alternative to the old brick and mortar model. Do you know of any business that can be started for less then $20?

    I have a vitamin shop in los angeles. It makes around 5k a month in profits. I have a two employees and traffic to that store is less then 50 a day. I repeat, less then 50 potential customers walk in and out that store every day. Bloggernoob is a useless and dorky blog about blogging that gets over 700 visitors a day. You don’t even need to do the math. I just need to find a nice scam to push. 😉

    Noob, thanks for a great blog.

    I’m curious as to which registrar you prefer for your domains, & why? Also, are you trading them, or just identifying good ones & holding? Finally, any suggestions on how to learn domaining?
