This blog is not all about making money. In my post, The Honest Truth About Making Money, I outlined exactly what I believed you can expect from blogging for money. What I have discovered is that you can utilize the Internet to add to your blogging income stream.

I’ve showed you how you can use Twitter to put money into your PayPal account. My Final Update On Snap Dollars also showed you proof, via a photo of the check I received, how it can be used to bring in a little extra cash. The Honest Truth About The SFI Affiliate showed how although I failed to make it work I believed it was more to do with me being an Aussie than a failure in the program itself.If you wish to view all my money related posts you just need to click on the Making Money Category which has over 50 posts in it.

While most of these schemes only add a little money in your wallet, if you combine enough of them it can add up to quite a bit at the end of the year. One thing that all these money making schemes have in common is that they are all FREE!  After being burned once I made a pact to myself that it will not happen again.

In the Twitter post mentioned above I told you how I was trialling a new scheme. That trial has almost ended and I hope to do a post soon. In one of the comments I’ve had with Dennis I mentioned how I have come upon a brand new one and he asked me to shoot him an email which I’ve done. The particular money making opportunity is a little more involved than most and so rather than wait until it’s culmination I thought I would share it with you guys as I go through it on a step by step basis.

When I signed up I didn’t even have access to this ‘Presell Page‘ where Tissa Godavitarne provides a lot of proof, including his IRS Form 1099, to substantiate his claims. He also provides his office address on Herndon Valley so people can call in personally to see him.  If any of you guys live near there perhaps you can call in to validate that it does actually exist. It’s a little hard from Australia.

As of yet I have not signed up for the GVO portion of the plan as that costs money but I am seriously considering it. The whole plan revolves around the ACME People Search Engine and while they have a free version I’ve opted to take it further so that I could have one hosted on my own domain, and I called it Sires People Search, as I believe like owning your own blog domain it will have it’s own distinct advantages.

If I was to use the free version Sires People Search would give me access to 5 income streams including ClickBank, Adsense, HD Publishing, MyLife and Commission Junction. So basically when people log onto my search engine, which unlike other sites that charge them, is free for them use, those other links that appear on the page are linked to the above affiliates. As the traffic that come to this site are targeted traffic they are more likely to convert.

I opted for the paid version, just under a $1 a day which gives me access to another four income streams,  just to see if it actually does increase my income stream. Naturally I will tell you the results in the next update.

I hope you will subscribe so as to be kept up to date with this, my latest money making project, as I don’t want you to miss out 0n any of the updates.

Honestly I wish there was a search for people option available in Australia as it would have come in really handy the last couple of months. One of my customers defaulted on a $2000 account and I had to resort to debt collecting agency to find where he was so I could take him to court. If we had a service similar to this I could have bypassed all that added expense.

Please leave a comment if you have any questions. Although I am new at this they have a very active forum that I can utilize to try and find any answers. Also, do not be scared to click on the links as they will make things a lot clearer. I noticed by the stats that no-one as even clicked on the search engine? Honestly, it won’t bit and if you don’t check it out how can you possibly know what I am referring to.

Just remember that there is no compulsion for you to buy anything at all.

I know there are some out there who may be a little confused about the whole thing and perhaps this complete Beginners Guide will provide some useful information.

How Twitter Can Actually Earn You Some Cash


While I haven’t done as many Twitter posts as my mate Mitch I have got a few under my belt. One of the first being about adding the Tweet My Blog plugin. This plugin was supposed to tweet my posts automatically as well as making me some cash on the side. It did the first well enough, except for the ugly banner on top of my blog for all first time visitors, but it failed to make me any cash, not even a dime. The plugin is no longer on this blog, as I now use feedburner to tweet all new posts.

I’ve also done a post on whether Gremlins had invaded Twitter describing an anomaly where I was following all these people that I didn’t actually want to follow, and how I checked those who I was following who didn’t return the favor.

OK. that’s it, so I reckon unlike Mitch I haven’t written all that much on Twitter,  :innocent1_tb:   and just to show you how much he has written about it you should check out his TweepSearch post.

But this post is not all about Mitch, it’s about a new way I’ve found for making money on the Internet, and you all know how I love sharing these ideas with you guys, and yes this one involves Twitter. Seeing as how there are heaps of people who use Twitter it’s not surprising that people out there are using this to market their products or services.

SponsoredTweets referral badgeI’ve only just joined Sponsored Tweets through Shoemoney figuring if he was using it there had to be some value to it. At the moment I’m earning a dollar for every tweet I do for an advertiser, but apparently those who have a huge following can earn a lot more.

The way it works is, once a member, you get a DM, or email whichever you choose, from an advertiser wanting you to tweet their product or service. You would then decide whether or not it’s one you would promote. If you’re agreeable you would tweet the ad with the relevant prefix letting your followers know that the tweet is a sponsored one. Sometimes the tweet will not be published until the ad is approved, but once it’s out there you will be paid.

Sounds like a pretty good deal so I signed up. If necessary I will do an update to tell you how it’s all going.

BTW, I am currently trialling another scheme that will earn you some money, it won’t make you a fortune but every dollar counts. I’ll do a post once the money’s in my PayPal account.

Necessity is the mother of invention. This is a well known proverb that can be applied to many things in life, including blogging. It basically means that whenever someone finds a need for something, if that need is great enough he will find a way of fulfilling that need.

One avenue of blogging where this is clearly displayed is the creation of all the great plugins that we use in our blogs. This can be anything from Andy’s Commentluv to Microkid’s related posts. They can save us time by simplifying tasks, they can improve the SEO of our blog or they can even reward those who take the time to comment on our blogs.

As bloggers our greatest need would be to get others to visit our blog. It doesn’t matter if you’re blogging for money or if you’re doing it just for the love of it, unless people are coming to your blog it all becomes pretty pointless. Our need is therefore quite obvious, we need to generate traffic.

Unfortunately it’s going to take more than a few plugins to achieve that goal. I’m afraid that I am going to disappoint a lot of you right now, especially if you thought this post was going to reveal an easy answer to all your traffic woes. I’ll leave that to the many squeeze pages on the subject, for the rest of us, we’re going to have to roll up our sleeves and get to work. Let’s keep one thing in mind though, and that is that we love the work we do, which is why we can throw so much into it and because it’s our passion to write and to succeed that is going to see us through.

The one thing that I do that brings a fair bit of traffic is commenting on other peoples blogs. I’ve found that by leaving constructive comments I get quite a few people coming here to see what else I have to offer. Knowing that to be the case all that is left is to Find The Right Blogs To Comment On.

While commenting is a good start, one of the major sources of traffic would have to be the search engines. As long as you provide the right food for the spiders the search engines can become your best friend as far as traffic is concerned. One way to get noticed by those guys is by getting a nice set of backlinks to your blog and instead of divulging my meager knowledge on the subject I’m going to send you to site that is going to tell you Everything You Need To Know About Backlinks! This is a pretty comprehensive post, complete with several instructional videos, and it may take more than one sitting to assimilate everything but it’s going to be worth it.

OK, I’m not one who likes to sit through a session where there is a possibility for information overload, so I’m not going to put you guys through it either. To finish off I would love it, and I think you will appreciate it as well, if you were to watch this small clip, one that shows you exactly how necessity is the mother of invention.
