'going on all at once'.
A couple of Etsy Shops,
(for my art related businesses)
an Imagekind Shop,
a Zibbet Shop,
Three Zazzle Shops
and it doesn't stop there.
I have about
ten mini-websites, all of which
I have attached some affiliate marketing links
somewhere on each site.
And, at least that many blogs,
also with affiliate links attached.
Each site is very 'niche-specific'...and the intent
is not as much about making 'lots' of money per...
but rather, a little of money on a lot of different sites.
My mindset....the more streams of income I have
Now...to top all of these sites...I also have
about 15 Squidoo Lenses and a couple of Hub pages...
and I write numerous articles,
some for my 'bum' marketing
and some for CASH.
The point I'm trying to make here is...
not that I am advocating seeing how 'thin' one can 'spread' themselves...
I NEED to make $57.00 a day/ 7 days a week....
not all that much..right???
A few years ago I was sticking to pretty much
selling my original art on eBay...
and everything was going just fine and DANDY.
I didn't need to make as much in those days...
and I was making what I needed
which..in turn...made me an eBay Power Seller.
Okay...sounds great...and then.......?????
eBay changed the rules in the middle of the game.
Not only could I not afford
to 'play with the big boys'...
I saw my sales take such a plunge
that I could no longer afford to continue on eBay.
I put all of my eggs into
(1) one eBay basket...
and when it dropped...
my eggs broke!
I learned not to trust any (1) one thing
for my entire income.
Now...I work my behind off...
trying to get everything all set up.
I've stumbled a few times...and fumbled a few more...
but, I'm finally seeing income coming in
from multiple sources.
Once all of the set up and promoting of each site
has been taken care of...
most of the hard work is out of the way...
then, it's just a matter of maintenance.
So...I've got money coming from
Etsy (from art sales)
Zazzle (three shops worth)
Affiliate sources (as affiliate items begin to sell)
Referral fees (from buyers who click on my affiliate links and then buy something else)
Article marketing (directing buyers to my sites and blogs where they purchase something through my affiliate links)
Article writing (outright article sales)
It's what I have to do to
make a living.
But...I'm finally beginning to get it all down
to a science!
