My rating for Click Millionaires – 5
Click Millionaires: Work Less, Live More with an Internet Business You Love by Scott Fox (website) is an exciting book which came to me just at the right time. I was looking for other sources of income, but didn’t want to work myself to death and be able to spend some time with the kids. I have tried freelance programming but never made any money at it (ended up with making $2 an hour or close to that) and gave up when I had to run for months after people to pay.
As you well know, I like books and have a book blog. While the main reason for the blog is not to make money, it sure would be nice to at least pay the hosting bills or buy some holiday toys for the kids. Most book bloggers will tell you that they’re not in it for the money, and I believe them.
But we all have an Amazon Associates account – don’t we?
Making money off associate accounts or on-line at all is an art form, time consuming and not as easy as you might think. We all know that the people selling hope are not selling a plan –and without a plan your dreams of Internet stardom are just that – dreams. I don’t think I’ll become a millionaire, but a few hundred bucks a month could go a long way
Why spend energy working nights, stocking shelves, when I can spend that energy on my own little business?
This book gives an excellent overview of ways to make money online through freelancing, vlogging, blogging, podcasting , etc. and how you can make all of these work together to your advantage. One reading, you can pick an avenue(s), research more and start their small online business almost immediately. There are many other sources at the end of the book for such research.
The reason this book excited me was not because of the information (as excellent as it is) but because of the ideas that were popping into my head while I was reading it. Some of them I immediately discarded off the bat, others I had to think about before discarding them – but I ended up with a few that I think might actually be descent.
And that, my friends, is the power of this book.
So tell me,what are you doing to monetize your blog?
