Well, it is nearly the end of another year, just Christmas to get through and it will be 2003!
I have been looking back over the past year in an effort to decide if I have achieved anything with my online businesses during 2002. I came up the following:
1. Three new websites up and running & one more on the way
2. Three new eBooks written, published and selling
3. Two of my eBooks are now listed on Amazon.com
4. Newsletter subscribers increased from 700 to over 7,000
5. Income up considerably 🙂
Now, the reason that I am telling you this is not because I think you will be pleased for me, but to illustrate that a lot can be achieved in a year and there is no reason why you could not do something similar in 2003. Yes, it is hard work, but then so is running any business. Yes, it will take up a lot of hours, but then so does any business.
Why not make 2003 the year that you start your own online business – it isn’t as hard as you might think and it is a great way to earn a living. This time next year, you could be sending emails to ME telling me what YOU have achieved.
I mentioned Corey Rudl a few weeks ago in this newsletter and promised I would tell you a bit more about him at some point. That point is now, so here is a quick summary of how Corey makes literally millions of dollars a year online.
Corey originally wrote a guide about ‘Car Secrets’ – how to save money when buying cars, how to make sure you don’t get ripped off when paying for servicing, that sort of thing. Corey was marketing it in magazines etc and losing thousands of dollars. He decided to start marketing it online and turned a failing business into a $500,000 revenue stream!
From there, Corey has developed other products and with the help of just 11 staff, his online businesses attract over 450,000 visitors A WEEK and last year his gross revenue was over $6.6 million!! (which is apparently more income per employee than Microsoft makes).
Corey has been interviewed on the Maury Povich show and his story really is an ‘amazing but true’ tale.
Now, his products are not the cheapest available – his Internet Marketing Course sells for around $200. However, he has recently published a shortened version of the course in eBook format and this is priced much more affordably.
