I love setting goals and talking about it and helping you to reach your own goals, and this blog is all in hopes to inspire you to go for your dreams.

So if that sounds good to you make sure you hit the subscribe button and that you also hit that little bell so that you get notified when I upload it. So you guys grab your favorite beverage coffee and let’s sit down and talk for just a few minutes about the things that you need to know about. If you are starting to work more on the internet, if you’re, starting to blog or if you’re starting to sell things on the online, I was blogging for 5 years.

Without doing any of these things – and I lost a lot of opportunities to make money and to just get out there and meet other people doing the same thing as I am as I was doing so get rid of you guys, because I’m about to show you The five things that you need to know about, if you’re, just starting out on the world wide web, let’s get started. Ok, you guys here we go so the very first thing that I recommend, if you are starting on the world wide web, doing anything regarding the public is that you create a landing page.

If you do not have a website, if you have a website even better, but I’m starting, let’s say from the beginning, if you were just starting out and all you have – are your social media sites, I recommend that you create a landing page or a web site, But I’m not going to get into the whole website thing, I’m just going to give you the basics of a landing page for a landing page. I recommend that you use MailChimp.

It is free. You can create landing pages with MailChimp, as you can see here, and you can create beautiful pages like you can see here in just a few minutes. So the next thing that you need to do is you need to create your email list right. That is so so important you guys when you are working with the public. It is important to start getting your own contacts, don’t just depend on Facebook or YouTube or Instagram or LinkedIn, because all these things can one day disappear, and then you have lost every single contact that you’ve made every single connection that you have made, but with an Email list – this is yours, it is priceless right, so you use MailChimp to create a landing page use MailChimp to create a to start.

Creating your email list, one of the best ways to start getting people to sign up to your email list, is to give something away for free. So whatever John Wright you’re in, I recommend that you let’s go here. I recommend that you use canva with canva. You can create all kinds of goodies to give away to your audience as an incentive for them to sign up to your email list. You can create anything that attracts them in your in your niche.

So if you’re, a writer, maybe you can do a checklist of things to do for like say, NaNoWriMo, that’s coming up. If you are in the cooking industry, you can do a recipe and tell them to to sign up to your email list to get the full recipe and maybe five more and you can create all these beautiful things with canva and canva is free, oh, and so Is MailChimp by the way, all free? So, as you can see here, I use canva for everything I create my quotes here with for Instagram, I create my trackers.

I create an outline anything that I want to give away to my audience. I created first in canva and then I lose load it onto my email program here with MailChimp and when someone signs up to my email list, they get a beautiful PDF. The next thing that I recommend that you do is that you sign up with the affiliate programs with Amazon or Target or any any of these big companies that you can sign up.

They pretty much. Let everybody sign up. I’ve never heard of anybody not being able to sign up, so I think you’re definitely a shoo-in, but what I mean by this four years for five years, I was blogging and I was recommending products and books for my audience to read and I never got a Penny for any of it when you join with the affiliate program with Amazon or Target, and you recommend a duck a product and they that person clicks on that link.

Let’s say you’re recommending a book and they click on the link and they buy that book. You get a commission for it, so don’t don’t don’t not do this, you guys it’s so important. Even every little penny counts as you’re growing in the industry. Okay. The next thing I recommend that you do is that you join Facebook groups, so many different Facebook groups, like you, can see here. I have author youtubers when I post a article on YouTube.

I can share it here. A little side note here, not every single group that you join, will let you post on their group, but a lot of them do so. For example, when I joined author youtubers, I can post my youtube articles here that I upload to YouTube and let them know hey, I just uploaded a article. I would love for you guys to check it out if you’re looking for this or that or whatever my topic may be another one here.

When I blog I can share my blog on this blog live on this other one. That’s called share your blog post and I don’t blog family getting noticed blog support group also see like power of thought. I can share it there I can share, and so my con aren’t so many Facebook groups that I had no idea that I could do this. You do this. Furthermore, you can post your books and your promotions on these other groups.

Kindle reading club. You can share it on these free, Kindle books, book marketing, free Kindles book, Kindle publishers when you’re running a promotion on your books. You can post it here and that’s more people that get to know about you and your book and people that are actually interested in either your topic or the kinds of books that you’re talking about or Kindle or whatever it is so yeah. You guys.

I hope that you found this helpful, like I said I blogged for so many years, without getting anything in return, so I didn’t want you guys to miss out on any of these opportunities. I wanted to give you guys a chance to know all the things that I didn’t know and I hope you get right on it. If you’re not doing it, maybe you already have your email list, but you’re not giving anything in returns, and maybe you can give canva a shot and try creating beautiful documents to give to your community.

And maybe if you do have an email list – and you already have a canva website that you use and that you give to you in products that you give back to your email subscribers. Maybe you haven’t signed up for the affiliate program and I definitely recommend that you do that because um, I think, if I’m not mistaken, if the timing is still right. If somebody clicks on your link today and let’s say you were promoting a book with Amazon, if they click on your link for 48 hours, if they go back to Amazon and they’re buy anything at all, it doesn’t even have to be the same book that they Clicked on you will get a commission for it.

Okay, so yes, you guys. That is all I have for you guys today. I hope you enjoyed this article leave me a comment below letting me know if you are going to try any of these things that you that I mentioned here on this article today and remember to subscribe and until next time stay safe.
