How to Make Money everyday

A lot of affiliate marketers and other internet marketers are trying to make money, but many of them aren’t making any money…right now.

That is something to think about…so here you are, clicking likes and posting articles, commenting on forums and signing up for new affiliate “opporutunities”. And if I asked you, “What are you doing” like if I visited your house and walked in your room where your computer is, and I said, “Dude…” (or dudette), like, whatcha doing? Can you stop and play a game of tennis” , you’d say, “Naw Dude/dudette/dawg depending on your zipcode and then I’d say “why not?” and you’d brush me off and turn back to your work. If you live in LA I’d say por kay no in my exaggerated midwest drawl to make you laugh. If that didn’t work, I’d bounce upon and down on the bed or jump up and down on it with both feet, or finally bop a pillow on your head (which is what you need reaaallllly bad right now) until you screamed “LEAVE ME ALONE!!!  I’M WORKING ALREADY!” and then, (while grabbing the door handle for my quick exit) I’d yell back “So what’s it paying”?

Crickets. No not the game (you can’t play a game of cricket/basketball/tennis with your buddies when you’re a slave to the computer.

Internet marketer, are you a slave to your computer? Affiliate marketer, are you a slave to the newest new thing? Yea, I know you made a couple of sales. Once. Or maybe a trickle, last week. But are you earning a living wage? Cuz if you aren’t, it’s time for a plan

DON’T QUIT CHURCH

Is church for today?

1 Timothy 3:15
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

When you read this verse, doesn’t it sound to you like God is talking about an actual meeting place? An actual physical, brick and mortar type building?

When I see the term, “house of God, which is the church of the living God”
And “pillar”, I mean, upon a non pre-conditioned, unbiased first reading, is there any doubt that this verse is talking about an actual, physical building? Read it again. (I dare you).

Did you? Come on, did you really read it a second time? I think that’s a fair request, don’t you?
I mean, if we are going to examine this verse, doesn’t it deserve a second look?

And right now, I would guess that many of you are looking at it through the lens of “deconstruct and re-word”.

A lot of people say that we are the church, meaning we the people. And yes, it is true that God says that we the people (the believing people), are the body of Christ and His members.
But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t also to be an actual building called the church.
There are actual verses that tell us that yes, we are to meet together as believers, and that, yes, it is an actual physical building we are to go to and that building is actually called a church.

1 Timothy 3:5
(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

Yes, this church can be read two different ways. When it talks about a man ruling his house, it means his household (his family), and it also means the physical structure he lives in. He does the plumbing, he leads his family in devotionals. The meaning is not one or the other…it is family and physical structure.
The same Pastor who takes care of his own house, also makes sure that someone shovels the snow at church, someone mows the lawn at church, so that he can prepare the sermons for the people and tend to their spiritual needs.
I know what some of you house group people are thinking. They met from house to house. They had “house church”. They didn’t do traditional church.
O. Really?
…and breaking bread, from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart. Praising God and having favour with all the with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. Acts 2:47 to 48
So there we have it, right? They went house to house for church? Yes, that would be correct, unless we also read the first portion of the passage.
And they, continuing daily with one accord IN THE TEMPLE and breaking bread, from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart. Praising God and having favour with all the with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. Acts 2:47 to 48
That is the complete passage.
They were in the temple every day, and then they also had daily fellowship in one another’s homes.
So why do the house church people always neglect to mention the first part of the verse?
Now, I know that some of you are screaming right now, “Well, there are other verses too” and yes, we will get to them. But for now, before you shoot my duckie out of the sky, let’s let him present his full beak at least before you shoot him down.
My point here, with this verse is, they did go from house to house. But that was after they went to the temple. And they were in the temple every day. Why was that? They clearly were open to meeting in one another’s homes. But this in no way took the place of meeting in the temple. Were they just hanging out at the temple? Maybe. But since it says that they were there in one accord, Don’t you kind of get the feeling that they were there for some specific purpose? Like prayer or maybe even…(gulp) an actual worship service? (wow!)
Because I know a lot of you want to act like there was just this great commune of Jesus people who met from house to house (they did) and shared everything. And yes. They did that too. Yet the very verse that says 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
This very passage is directly above the one about meeting in the temple.
Yes, these house fellowship loving, commune living folk, met with one accord in the temple, every single day, just as they did in the upper room several verses prior.
Wow.  All of you house group people take note: your predecessors also met in the temple. Not just for fellowship in homes.
Why did this stop? Why the house group movement.
Pain. Pain. Rejection. More pain. Pastoral nonsense. Pain. More nonsense. Scandal. Deadness. Dry sermons. Disallusionment.
Thankfully, in our nation there are more than 2 or three temples on every corner.
Move on.
Don’t quit church.
I hear you right now. I am done with church. I will lick my wounds with select believers.
Go on then.
Heal
Recover.
Then get back in church.
I realize starting over is hard. Please don’t only live the second part of this passage.
Don’t isolate and segregate. You do it right, even if your pastor did it all wrong.
(He’s been hurt too, you know). Hurt people hurt people. He’s not the only man of God out there.
Take a chance each weekend.
You’ll find the right place
I know you think you’ve found it in your home. Now go live the first part of this passage.
Pray about it. (will you please please pray? I mean don’t tell me I have prayed Pray right now)/
The Holy Spirit will help you get back into a church that you love.
Give Him a chance. He never quit you.

And daily in the temple, AND in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ”–Acts 5:42

The guts of making money online

  1. an actual product. This means something you can hold in your hand, and ship yourself.
  2. Refer to rule number one if you are an affiliate marketer
  3. Make sure it’s a product that at least one hundred people in the world use…
  4. and would pay more for (as an example, there are thousands of amish, but they make their own buggy whips, so that would not be a good product).
  5. Try to pick a product you are interested in. It helps prevent burnout. So, for example, if you are a mechanic, don’t try to sell wigs and makeup. A lot of marketers choose things like health care because they think that they will make a lot of money. But you need to choose something you are passionate about.
  6. Pick a market that is not saturated. When you get better at marketing, you can get into a more competitive field.
  7. Get a really good internet education, and make your sales platform the very best it can be! It’s all right here

Should Christians go to Church?

English Roses

 man-woman-dressing-getting-dressed

Every since I can remember, I have heard the following statement made over and over by Christians and non-Christians.
“God doesn’t care whether I go to church or not”.
For the non-Christian, this statement was always prefaced with. “The world is my church. Nature is my sanctuary.”

For the “Christian”, it was always followed by “Church-going is a legalism. God only cares about my heart.”

I am concerned about this mind-set and would like to discuss it.

Yes, it is true that some people who go to Church are hypocrites.
Yes, it is true. If you read your Bible, and pray, you can hear from God. At home. Like a lone ranger.
And, also, it is entirely possible, if you attend a place of worship filled with non-committed, backbiting, hateful people, you can avoid all associated emotional pain and hurt, by staying at home.

“The Affiliate Marketing Detox Letters”|”The 7 Great Lies of Affiliate Marketing”

This is the first letter in the series “Affiliate Marketing Detox”.

WARNING! If you are an affiliate marketer, and you are making a real living income off of affiliate marketing, then God Bless You! It is not my intent here to suggest that no one ever makes money as an affiliate marketer. However, many affiliate marketers are not making minimum wage at what they do.

Rather than suggest that they try harder, I am trying to get all affiliates to consider making money as an internet marketer, who sells their own product.

If you are an affiliate marketer and you like what you do, make money at what you do, or are merely convinced that affiliate marketing is THE horn of plenty, then go to a different post..

But if you think your income could be better, or are wondering if there are any non affiliate streams of income to drink from, read on!

In this first letter, we will be talking about the internal challenges affiliate marketers face in taking the risk of trying to sell their own product, rather than promoting someone else’s product.

Issue number one:Trouble Bonding with Products

Affiliate Marketers have bonding issues. They have trouble committing to one product, and instead, are like a serial dater who has many different relationships….with other people’s products. Just like playas hop around from person to person, affiliates jump from product to product.  Some may call it diversifying. Marketers who actually sell something, call this behavior a lack of focus. This fear of marketing attachment stems from a faulty belief system.

Belief: you don’t think you can sell

Why don’t you think you can sell?

Why do you think that only the people you are promoting can sell a product? You doubt yourself, affiliate. But affiliate, here’s the real truth…you CAN sell!
Have you ever sold a candy bar for your school or charity? Did you ever sell anything over the phone? Did you ever have to sell, convince or persuade someone on making a decision in your favor? That in itself displays selling skills. Affiliate, every time you write a “buy this product” page or “review”, you are demonstrating the art of persuasive selling! The truth is, most affiliates ARE salesmen…by far!

Lie number 2–You don’t think you will make any money selling your own product or service

Well, affiliate, are you making money? We all hear of door-to-door salesmen who sell someone else’s product, but we never hear of them being wildly successful. That’s because, selling for others is hard! Read this excerpt: https://howtosellanythingonline.wordpress.com/2018/01/22/affiliate-can-we-talk/

Issue number 3-You’ve bought the lie that it takes a lot of “over”head to sell your product

But the truth is, it takes investment to promote other people’s product, if you need to:

  1. Pay a fee for the “privilege” of promoting them
  2. Be a member/customer before promoting their product
  3. Buy Google ads to promote them
  4. Buy back links
  5. Build a mega site in hopes of dominating the search engines

you think that being an affiliate is easier than selling your own product

Oh, you think so? Really? Have you forgotten the hours spent promoting the best products out there…that only, oh, 1 million others were promoting?

you don’t have a product to sell

This is the biggest lie of all. Affiliate, don’t tell me that you aren’t capable of producing your own product, or selling your services. In this over saturated world of affiliate marketing, if you’ve made a dime, you are capable. Only you and other affiliates know the time and effort you’ve put into selling other people’s stuff. It’s time to sell your own.

you don’t think that your product is capable of pulling in sales.

The second biggest lie of all. Affiliate, chances are, you have exactly what it takes to STOMP the competition. It will take time. But affiliate right now, there is a product you can sell that will make you money right off the bat. Niche marketing shouldn’t mean “AFFILIATE SLAVE”. Find your OWN niche, and rake it in.

you’ve already invested so much money in affiliate marketing programs, you feel the need to “make” it work

Forget it, affiliate. Consider it the cost of an education. Most marketers have been burnt. Move on and sell your own stuff!

Why your New Year’s Resolution fails you|…Like, every year.

Tell me, reader, why is it that we make impossible New Year’s goals, that we know we will fail at? I think it’s because we get obsessed with goal setting rather than goal reaching. Goal setting is what happens when twenty people say, “So what are YOUR New Year’s resolutions?” and we think, “hmmm, what should I resolve to do” ?

But now, Goal reaching is different. It works like this…”What do I want to accomplish by the end of this year?” That’s goal reaching.

Now, take that year end goal, and break it down. Season by season. Month by month. Week by week. Day by day.

Now here’s the deal. If you didn’t come up with some flaky resolution that sounded good, you will take the time to plan this goal out, because it’s what you really want to accomplish (not what sounds good to everyone).

Here are some posts from last year which really dive deep into the whole psychology of setting New Years goals that get met.
