4 Ways I’m Making Money Online Other Than Freelancing

I have to be brutally honest with you guys. Money making was the sole reason I started my blogging career. I got into the blogging scene to be able to make money and support myself, and I was successful.

I made money from my blog within the first 6 months of starting my first blog. I took that money and invested in domain, hosting and my computer to work better.

Soon I discovered freelancing and I switched my career from a blogger to a freelance web designer. Now freelancing is my bread and butter.

These days freelancing is the talk of the nation in Bangladesh.

Online career means freelancing (people also call it outsourcing.) A large portion of digital workers in Bangladesh including me are freelancers.

Since I am blogging from Bangladesh, a lot of you guys are into freelancing. Here in this article I am going to share some of the ways I am actively making money online other than freelancing. [Continue reading…]

Embedding a Third Party Store on Your Website

Say you are an affiliate of some sort of company which gives you your very own e-store in a separate web address. All you have to do is to send the visitor to that link and hope they purchase something.

One of my clients had her own website of cosmetic products and virtual makeovers. However her store page was simply linking to an external URL to check out the products. What I did was to embed that whole e-store experience to this store page. [Continue reading…]

Mike Tyson Will Kill You

What happens when you find yourself in a boxing ring against Mike Tyson and your whole life is depending on it? I know you don’t have a chance of winning when you are up for a professional boxer –but how much effort you will give to fight him. I’m sure you will give 110% of your strengths on it.

Keep that in mind that’s important!

Now here is the thing, when you are up against for someone in a fist fight, no matter who is your opponent, visualize that the person is Mike Tyson or Undertaker –you choose. Then give that exact effort you would have if you were actually playing against a larger opponent.

Last night I was watching one of my favorite movies Predator. It’s a movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger –I think most of you will know about this movie. It’s a movie where a group of elite commandos are in a jungle against a deadly alien. [Continue reading…]

How to Become an Entrepreneur & Upgrade Your Life

Richard Branson
Richard Branson – Virgin Group

Few days ago someone at the yahoo answers community asked “How to become an entrepreneur?” I see the trend here. People are now leaning towards being their own boss and quit the 9-5 lifestyle.

So in this article I am going to answer this question in detail and tell you how exactly you can become an entrepreneur.

Do I Qualify as an Entrepreneur?

I have started working on my own business when I was 15 years old. I never wanted the idea to have a boss and go into the rat race. I started my own t-shirt design store at that age. It failed, and I started working on direct marketing. I learned how to sell and talk to new people. I learned how to improve my personality.

I invested some of my family’s money in transport with my mom. That failed miserably. Then I started my computer parts selling business. I was buying gadgets in cheap to sell them for high margins. Then I started a website, then a blog and went online.

I started doing online marketing with blogs and I started to see profit. Then I became a web designer and that went very well. Then I started working as a consultant for online & offline businesses; that went very well too.

I also share my journey that inspired so many of my readers to start their own. So far I was never held in a job and I created jobs for others.

So How to Become an Entrepreneur?

How Do I Get My First Few Customers?

So you just started your first business and you need a paying customer. How do you find one? If you have a point of sale, then getting your first few customers is easy, they just have to spot you. However when you are running a consultancy business, how will you get your first customer on board?

I am going to give you some practical advice that will help you get customers. When I started my first web design business, I used the exact same principles to attract clients.

Let Your Network Know that You Are Open for Business

open-for-business-sign
Are you open for business?

How does a shop find its first customer? Simply because people can see that this shop is open. So what you have to do is to let your existing network know that you are taking clients. Have a facebook account? Entitle yourself as the CEO/Consultant or what you like better on the work field.

Are you on linkedin? Then do the same and entitle yourself to this new business of yours. This is a small trick but it simply works. A lot of people and their friends are constantly checking you out and when they see you are offering these services, they may be interested in being your customer.

Post an update to your twitter/facebook profile that you are taking clients. If you have a blog already, then post about this on your blog and let your readers know that you are expecting business.

Sanjida did it cleverly by sharing about her work on facebook & also sharing updates regarding her coaching career. She also went one step further by creating a separate facebook page for her coaching services. [Continue reading…]

Why You Need to Be Aggressive in Pursuing Your Goals

shark attackBy default we all like to play it safe and be defensive. It is something that most people are doing, I was doing it for years and chances are that you are doing it still now. But it is time you should level up and show some aggression.

We are the masters of our own selves. You will be treated the way you want others to treat you. You can barely make a living or choose to be in the elite’s league. The choice is yours.

I realized this while playing some video games. I like to play some action games and in one mission I was stuck. I tried to play defensive, I tried to go stealth but I was failing every time.

It was taking me forever just to go from one room to another. Time was running out. I was afraid of my enemy, I was afraid to get shot and most of all I was afraid of failing the mission.

Then my brother asked me to play rough, to play aggressively. [Continue reading…]
