How Much Money Will I Make Working From Home

Here is a question I received this week.  I have received permission from the writer to answer it here on my blog because others may have the same question.

Roxanne,

You say that you have made enough money over the past 12 years working from home to support your family of four.  I am sick and tired of my job.  It sucks.  I have enough money in the bank to support my family for about a month.  Can you guarantee that I will make money if I start this home business with you?  Also, the thing I really love and would like to blog about is animals.  I have dogs and cats and rescue other animals.  Is that something I can make money blogging about?

Thank you,

KT

Hi KT,

First of all, NO ONE can guarantee your income or even guarantee that you will make any money.  My success is based on my efforts as your success will be based on your efforts.  You must commit to doing a couple hours of work EVERY day.  This is not a “set it and forget it” type of business.  It’s very important that you understand that.

With that said…yes…you can blog about animals and have good results if you follow the steps we outline for you.  That’s the beauty of this system.  It will work with any business, any topic.  A good friend of mine, Kim Klaver, began her business with Empower Network about 3.5 months ago.  She has made well over $60K and was invited by the company to a special retreat for the top 100 income earners in Empower.  She started at the bottom with no one, just like I did.  Just like you would.

I would not, however, recommend that you quit your job before you start making money with this.  If you have 2 hours a day (everyone can find 2 hours a day to make money), you can do the steps and work Empower to start making money.  When you have sold a few of the blogging systems and inner circle memberships, you will be making enough to pay for your monthly costs and have some extra coming in.   The more time and effort you can put into it, the faster you will go.  It’s all up to you.  After you start making money and see how easy it is, you can come up with an exit strategy of when your last day at your job will be.  The beauty of this system is that you can blog about anything you want.  So, yes, you can blog about what you love!

So…let’s get you started right away.  The quicker you get started, the quicker we can help you start making money.

I look forward to working with you!

Can You Really Make Money Blogging?

People are constantly talking about making money blogging.  I’ve seen moms who want to stay at home with their children out there religiously blogging about their day.  Blogging about their kids….about their lives.  People blogging about gardening…about anything and everything.

Then they come to me and say “I’m writing these blog posts daily and not making any money.  WHY??” 

Here’s a secret….

You can blog all day long and get to page one of the search engines every time, but if you don’t have any way to MONETIZE your blog, you are wasting time.  It’s just a hobby blog.

You must have something to sell.  Some way for your readers to pay you for something. 

Many bloggers sell affiliate products from places like clickbank.  Others run ads in the sidebar of their blogs from google or amazon, etc…

Here’s the problem with that…  You sell a $100 product, you might make anywhere from $5 to $25.  Rarely do you find affiliate products that pay you more than 25%.  Some of these people join a network marketing company and promote their products on the blog.  Rarely do you find a network marketing company that pays you more than 40%.  The average is around 20% to 30% on what you sell.  Even though those are good numbers, you can do better.

I help people who want to blog earn 70% to 80% EVERY time they make a sale!  That’s the absolute best payout I’ve ever seen.

FIRST…Think about something you love.  Maybe a hobby.  Maybe parenting.  Maybe traveling.  Maybe…  You get the picture.  It can be ANYTHING that others might enjoy reading about.

SECOND…Click here…watch the video and find out how you can have your own blogging system all set up for you for just $25 and make money when others sign up for the same system.

THIRD…Sign up for your blogging system today

FOURTH…Start blogging about whatever YOU want and share your posts on social spaces

FIFTH…Make money!

It’s that simple.  Notice I said simple and not effortless.  You have to put in the time and effort to write about what you love.  You have to share those posts with others.  That’s it!

Go watch the video and sign up for your system today!  I look forward to helping you get started!

Cooler Corn on the Cob

My brother and his family love to camp. I was over this weekend and he told me about a way to cook corn on the cob that I had never heard of before. It’s called “Cooler Corn”.

Here’s how it works:

CoolerBlu1st, get a cooler. Remove your beer (relax – you can put it back later or just get a separate cooler for this), clean it out and put in the ears of corn that you’ve removed the husk and hairs from.

Next, boil enough water to cover the ears of corn.

Last, close the lid and let it sit for about 30 minutes.  The corn will stay warm and perfectly done for up to two hours.

Try it.  I hear it’s a great reason to buy an extra cooler!

 

Another Reader’s Question

QandAsmall

This email came in overnight from a reader and I felt strongly that it needed to be answered here ASAP!

 

 

 

Hi Roxanne,

I found you on facebook and love your Q&A series on your blog.  Here is my question.   If you do decide to answer it on your blog, please just call me “NOT making money with facebook”.

I just found out today that my job is ending in a month and I need to know how to be making money with my business before then.  I’m scared!  Before now, I’ve been trying to work my MLM business but it’s just not going anywhere.  I feel like I’ve been wasting a lot of time on facebook.  I take all of these classes and they say to go to groups where other networkers are and post 1 – 3 times a day.  I do that and get no response.  I’m posting about all of the great things about our company.  The excellent pay plan, how they can get started for under $500, how they can fire their boss and things like I see other people posting.  I don’t get anyone to “bite”.  I’ve sent some emails to people introducing myself and my business just like I was told by one trainer.  That got me a warning from facebook.  Someone reported me for spamming them.  I wasn’t spamming, I was introducing myself and my business.

It just seems that there are so many rules to what you can and can’t do on facebook.  And everyone is doing the same thing so how do I know what will make money?     I’ve spent a lot of money on training and I feel that I’ve been implementing everything I was taught to do.  Why isn’t it working and what is the best way to make money going forward?

Thank you for your help.

Well, hello, NOT…   I am glad you found me!  I’m sorry to hear about your job, but the good news is you can turn that into a very good thing.  I’ll tell you why in a bit.  Welcome to my training.  I don’t know how far you’ve read or what, if any, trainings you’ve listened to of mine so I will begin with this:

I am not one to “sugar coat” things.  I will not tell you what you want to hear, I will tell you what you need to hear.  If that’s too blatant and too much for you right now, don’t read the rest of this answer.

OK…here it is….

First of all, you found me on facebook.  That is a very good sign.  Do you know what that tells me?  It tells me that what I’m doing is working!!  Now…do you want to learn from someone who is just making money teaching or from someone who is actually doing the things they are teaching?  Too many times people teach others to do things they are not willing to do themselves.  Why?  I do not know what the motivation is for that.  Maybe if they can keep you from having success, they think you will keep coming back to spend more money with them, I don’t know.  In reality, the exact opposite is true.

Let’s move on…

Going to groups where other networkers are and posting all of the great things about your company is actually the WORST way to do business on facebook.  Let’s look at this logically.  These groups are filled with other network marketers.  They already have a company.   They are struggling just like you are.  They have heard everything you are saying before.  Heck…they’ve probably said it too.  They are not your target market.  So, you are spending time giving the wrong information to the wrong people.  There aren’t many other ways than bad that could turn out.

You talk about sending emails to other facebook members.  You say “I wasn’t spamming, I was introducing myself and my business.”  Did these people ASK to hear about you and your business?  I don’t think so.  Any time you send any kind of private message (fb PM, fb email, regular email, etc…) that is unsolicited (not asked for) it is considered SPAM.  You could be legitimately offering people $100 for reading your email and if the recipient didn’t ask for you to email them, it’s SPAM.  So, yes…you were spamming them.

It’s good that you are willing to invest in yourself and get the training you need.  I did take a look at your facebook profile and I can tell you that it is not set up properly to attract the right people.   The first thing I always recommend that you have a smiling photo of YOU as your profile photo and that you use a cover photo with a clear, concise, “About Me” statement that tells the person looking at it who you are and what you do.  This should be short and clear.  Read my post from yesterday about using facebook to market your business.  It’s all about being SOCIAL on SOCIAL spaces.  Attraction marketing.  That’s what works, not “go yell and scream until people block me” which is what is being taught by many “trainers”.

Bottom line…You will need to learn how to properly use facebook to market your business.  I suggest you find a coach who is currently working on facebook and having success doing it.  Learn from them.  Don’t waste your money on any other training.  Get the proper training now while you still have an income and you can learn how to be making money before you get into the spot where you have nothing and are so desperate that nothing works.

Good luck!!
