$35k/month affiliate + info products
A new interview on eBiz Facts: How I earn $35,000/month with affiliate marketing and digital info products
Matt Giovanisci runs a few different online businesses but his big money-maker 💰💰💰 is a site teaching people how to look after their swimming pools and hot tubs.
He also created a one-minute video which perfectly depicts the day-to-day life of most online entrepreneurs.
6×6 Method for finding paid gigs
If you’re stuck finding a remote job or clients for your freelance business, read this post on Reddit.
The author outlines something he calls the 6×6 Method which helped him succeed first as a personal trainer and later as a software engineer.
No tricks, no hacks, no shortcuts… I promise that if you spend six hours a day doing one of the six things on your list for each billable hour in your day, then you will be fully booked out with paid work in two months
The bigger message I take from that post is this: until you find paying work, your job is to find paying work. That means setting yourself a schedule, showing up every day, and doing what needs to be done 💪
$13k/month interviewing weird people
Last year Andrew Callaghan started traveling around the USA and interviewing some very strange people.
He’s posted only seven short videos to his YouTube channel so far and has racked up almost 4 million views.
More significantly: 2,673 people have signed to his Patreon at $5/month.
Here’s his YouTube channel, chock full of swearing 🤬 and absurdity 🤪
Best books for online entrepreneurs
There are tons of “best business books” lists out there 📚
You’ll find dozens of handpicked recommendations there, sorted into categories to help you find the most relevant book for your current situation.
I’ve included links to video summaries so you can learn the key lessons of each book in 10 minutes or less, plus the occasional free audiobook I found on YouTube.
Oh, and there’s also a section about how to get books free/cheap and a video I made sharing tips for reading a book a week.
If you know of a great business book I haven’t included, hit reply and let me know.
That’ll do it for this week.
Was there anything above that you found particularly useful or interesting?
