Talk about changing times, if you wanted a book published a decade ago you would have to go through hell and back to find a publisher to take on your book. Most Authors got rejected so many times that they gave up their dream of becoming an Author. How many voices were we unable to hear because of it? How many stories were swallowed into a black hole never to be heard from again? All because publishers didn’t want to take a chance.

You can create your own eBook cover using Photoshop or simply use a crowdsourcing site like fiverr to create one for you. It is simpler than it ever has been before. Now anyone can produce their own book and have their stories heard around the world. Don’t wait any longer! If you have a story waiting to be heard, now is the time to get it done.

BLOGGING: Traditional News Media Outlet’s Worse Fear!
Blogging is a media avenue that not many people are aware of that can produce a profit while allowing you the ability to write about what you care about most. This is a great way to discuss things you are passionate about and build a large following along the way. As niche as your idea may be, there will ultimately be an audience waiting to hear what you have to say. No matter how unique your passion is, the Internet has allowed us the ability to connect with others with similar interests. Of course there is some stiff competition, but if you stick with it long enough, get through the first year building a following and produce content on a regular basis; it can be a great income stream. How can you make money blogging? Simple, through affiliate marketing or by creating and selling your own products on your blog. Let’s first discuss making money via affiliates. When you have a blog in a certain niche, most if not all companies will pay you a commission for selling their products on your site. Let’s say your blog is about fishing, the owners of fishing or fishing pole companies will gladly pay you for each customer you send their way. That’s money they wouldn’t have made without you. Simply post a banner ad on your blog page and every time someone clicks on the ad and buys something, you make money from it. However it has to be relevant to the topic of your blog, if your blog is about fishing and your banner ads are on TV’s then it just won’t work. Blog readers are likely to buy from your affiliates if they trust you and feel that after using the product you can recommend it. Some of the largest Affiliate Markets that sell thousands of products are:
· CJ.com (Commission Junction)
· Amazon Affiliates
· And many more!
Of course the goal first is to deliver great content, increase traffic to your blog and then sell products that solve your readers problems. The second way to make money via blogging is through creating your own product or service. This is another revenue stream that can work really well, a simple way to figure out what your readers want is to survey them on your page and simply deliver a product that solves their problem or answer their question. You can create videos, books or physical products and can keep 100% of the profit. This is a great way to make money online. The reason this is so great is because of scalability, the internet allows you to reach people all across the world that you would never have the ability to come in contact with in person. Therefore your reach is much wider and once you set up your website, you can make money while you’re sleeping.
