    Hey, YOU!
    You’re here because you want to make money, right?
    Well, stop wishing and start doing something about it!

    Read this blog.  In fact, read all that you want.  The truth of the matter is that you’ll never earn a single penny if you don’t do anything about it.

    I’ve never spoken at seminars nor have I ever been featured in the paper, but if you want to start making money online in 24-hours, Ewen Chia can help you.  This is what he has to say about his program:

    Listen, nobody wants to beat his head against the wall trying to succeed.

    Only an idiot would actually enjoy sweating and missing sleep and giving up family time just to sit and wait every day for money to roll in…and never see a penny.

    But the sad news is that the vast majority of people who ever try to create an Internet business do exactly that — they work, they wait and absolutely nothing happens.

    I don’t want you to have to settle for that. What I’ll show you is

    • A simple plan that’s easy to do (it takes about 2-3 hours to set everything up, and I’ll walk you through every step)
    • Dirt cheap, and mostly free (you’ll probably need about $25-50 maximum for everything you need to buy, like a domain and hosting)
    • A method that pays off fast (yes, you can and probably will see profit in 24 hours or less)

    New Year, New Strategies

    Last year was not a bad one for me, but it had its ups and downs.  Like any business, webtrepreneurs have to be able to adapt to curve balls thrown their way.

    2009 started off with a bang.  My eBay affiliate business was netting around $300 a month in January, $400 in February, and was set to earn $500 in March.  eBay, however, decided to cut off my account in March for no good reason.  After months of dispute, they never paid me in March and my affiliate account has been deactivated.  I have no idea why my account was flagged as all my sites stuck to their terms of service and all sites were original and clean.  Such is life, right?  I think they’re shooting themselves in the foot and this is just another blow to their reputation, in my opinion.

    So, with that stream of income cut off, what’s one to do?  Well, it’s a good thing I had other moneys coming in from other sources.  I netted about $1000 last year from referrals and the few bucks I made from eBay.  Though I didn’t set any goals for 2009 and 2010 is already shaping up to be a very busy year, I’ll do my best to keep blogging and I hope to make 50% more this year than last.  Let’s see how things go and I’ll keep you posted!

    Not sure what a domain name is?  Check this out this intro:

    Domain Names

    The main purpose of a domain name is to provide symbolic representations, i.e., recognizable names, to mostly numerically addressed Internet resources. This abstraction allows any resource (e.g., website) to be moved to a different physical location in the address topology of the network, globally or locally in an intranet, in effect changing the IP address. This translation from domain names to IP addresses (and vice versa) is accomplished with the global facilities of Domain Name System (DNS).

    By allowing the use of unique alphabetical addresses instead of numeric ones, domain names allow Internet users to more easily find and communicate with web sites and any other IP-based communications services. The flexibility of the domain name system allows multiple IP addresses to be assigned to a single domain name, or multiple domain names to be services from a single IP address. This means that one server may have multiple roles (such as hosting multiple independent websites), or that one role can be spread among many servers. One IP address can also be assigned to several servers, as used in anycast networking.

    Keep on Keepin’ on

    Since I last created a post to this site, I’ve been busy developing strategies on how to make more money from the ‘net.  I’ve tried a few different approaches with varying degrees of success and have come to the realization that only 2 things really matter when it comes to making money.  One of the variables is easier to manipulate (and should be!) and the other has more to do with how much money you want to spend to see things through.  Sure, it is possible for the 2nd variable to occur naturally but it will take time.  If you’re like me, you like to see results quickly.  So, here are the two variables:

    1- A captive audience – This is your target audience.  You design your website and fill it with content so that these people find your site and make a decision to spend money through it.  I say “through” it because you’re most likely building an affiliate site so you’re not selling anything.  Your website visitors see your content, and decide you are trustworthy enough to click on a link and go spend money at the target site.

    The ‘captive’ part of having an audience is the bit that’s really interesting.  You are able to almost completely manipulate your audience so that they are captive.  If you are anything like me, this part stinks.  I have no artistic ability and really struggle to make a website design look good.  I spent a lot of time going through design iterations and end up settling for something that I know is less than optimal…but then I spend a lot of other time creating good content on my website so I think that things balance out.

    2- Traffic.  This has been my mantra: “Traffic is the new gold”.  I believe that if you have enough visitors to ANY site, you’ll end up making money.  If you’re selling something desirable (like a Nintendo Wii) and get average traffic, you’ll make money.  If you’re selling crap and get a bazillion visitors, you’ll make money.  It all comes down to traffic.  If you have a budget of $100-$500, you can create a lot of traffic rather quickly (Google adwords, paid ads on relative websites, etc…) and hopefully build from there.  However, if you are a cheapskate and don’t want to spend any money, you have to earn your stripes and do hard-core work that will take months to give you any results.

    Right now I’m still working on factor #1.  I am getting organic traffic to my websites and need to create a more captivating environment for these folks to decide to spend money.  In the future, I plan to grow the number of websites that I have and will also have a budget for marketing.  This is all still trial and error for me but I believe that I’m on the right track.

    PhpBay and Drupal

    I’ve often wondered what Drupal was all about as a CMS so I started playing with it the other day.  It’s actually a very flexible tool that could help people create wonderful affiliate sites but me, I’m used to WordPress.

    However, if you have a Drupal site and want to add some money making auctions from eBay to your site, this is a quick guide on how to do so.

    How to use PhpBay and Drupal

    Set up Drupal and make sure there are no error warnings.  I strongly
    that you use Hostgator for Drupal hosting as they offer many configurable options that ensure Drupal will work without a hitch.

    When setting up Drupal, you want to turn on the “PHP filter” module so that you can execute PHP code.


    Purchase PhpBay if you haven’t done so already and download the API.

    Edit the config.php file to contain your ebay partner network (EPN) ID:
    $config[‘ebay_pid’] = “123456789”;

    Upload the following to your drupal root directory:
    and the file auctions.php

    Now, go to create a new Drupal page or post and enter your auction code like this example:

    phpBayAPI(“macbook pro”, 15, “111422”, “”);

    and make sure to check “php code” in the input box.


    If after creating the page/post you only see the original code:
    Make sure that you:
    1- turned on the PHP filter
    2- In the composition window, make sure you clicked on “php code”

    If after creating a post the images don’t show up:
    1- make sure that you copied the contents of the .htaccess file provided by phpbay to the TOP of the .htaccess file made by drupal
