I an without a doubt a fan of the best passive income sources opportunities that I can find today. Not that a regular nine to five can’t be a positive thing but for those who are looking at becoming their own boss I found that blogging online is one of the best ways to create a passive income today.

Why is that? Because think about it. We live in a new era with a different type of mindset versus the old way of thinking of working for a company for decades and retiring with a nest egg built up for retirement. In fact did you know that at least half of baby boomers have not saved enough money to retire comfortably on? And what about younger worker? Do they have the same mindset as older people did? Not at all.

The new way of earning an income has switched from working for the man to working for ourselves. It’s the so called American dream now, earning through digital marketing by selling online. And it doesn’t matter what you are selling. It could be a service or it can be a product through a company that offers affiliate sales. That means that you, yes you can get in on the action with no out of pocket to access affiliate links through various companies.  (more…)

Is The Expert Rating Certified Professional Blogging Course Worth The Money?

Is The Expert Rating Certified Professional Blogging Course Good?

Ok, so I ran into this Expert Rating Certified Professional Blogging Course. It’s a way for bloggers to get certified as a professional blogger and this is supposed to help you learn to make money in the industry. Looking at the homepage for the blogging certification course I saw that it’s a pretty well laid out system which teaches you the ins and outs of blogging I am assuming for an income. You learn how to create and promote your own blog during a six week course and at the end take a test for final certification. Take a look at what this all looks like below. (more…)

Is The Zero Up Online Training Course All That And A Bag Of Fritos?

Is The Zero Up Online Training Course All That And A Bag Of Fritos?

Ok, here is a program I ran into recently and it’s called the Zero Up Online Training Course. Is this thing all that and a bag of Fritos corn chips? Let’s see what I found out!

Basically, this is one of those hyped up programs that works with and the idea is you build a website and sell through Shopify but before you do this you have to sign up with your email address. Once in you find a video with a young exited guy telling you he is giving you his free course but you also have to join Shopify and then download the Zero Up App Lite App. I wasn’t really sure what the heck was going on at first with it all because the front page was full of information, the video was somewhat vague and you had to after submitting your email, sign up with Shopify and then download an app. Here is what the download app looks like.

Pretty straightforward I guess but then you have to install this app on your Shopify account and from there you get their exclusive ten part video training series. And no you don’t have to have any products on hand to do this. I am sure this is affiliate marketing where you promote their products on Shopify. This program is somewhat like the one I used to learn affiliate marketing but from the comments I suspect it may cost a bit more money.


How Much Can You Make With The Zero Up Training Course?

Now the program does have a disclaimer that states there is no way of knowing how much you can make with their course. It really depends on the amount of time and effort you put into it and that’s something you should be aware of. Is it a scam? I don’t think it’s a scam but keep in mind that the money the company makes is selling you the program whether it works or not on your end. So, if you spend any money on a Shopify store and don’t make any money, Zero Up is not responsible.

What do I think of this? While I think the potential is there to make some money as an affiliate marketer I will say that when you are selling anything digitally whether it be physical or digital items, the key is to get customers to see your store and that may be the biggest hurdle you have. Because let’s face it, there are a ton of websites out there and not everyone is impressed by the hard work you put in on your website. And the responsibility will lay on you to make people check out what you have and buy from you.

Is Zero Up Worth Your Time?7d63af62c0b7cb2812eeb1fff01909be1529586902 cropped - Is The Zero Up Online Training Course All That And A Bag Of Fritos?

I’ll be honest here. If you’re a newbie and don’t know a thing about marketing your own website or even how to write blogs and add some affiliate links and pictures I would have to say pass on this. Why is that? Because while this may teach you the basics I have a feeling that you may end up spending more money on upgrades and promotions that necessary. I think it may be a bit confusing and frustrating for total newbies in the industry. But, I could be wrong.

I began this website 2 1/2 years ago and now it is making money off of referrals that sign up for the platform I use. I won’t dispute the fact that I do earn a small comission. And I’m not here to slam other opportunities but since I have learned so much in the industry and seen so many quit I think I may have some front end knowledge. You have to be picky when choosing a new business especially in affiliate marketing.

The choice really is yours to do what you want when it comes to starting your own business. It’s not rocket science to learn how to write content, insert links and promote your website. That is what you would be doin on Zero Up but it takes time and effort. Learning affiliate marketing can be easy however and you can build your own website without getting caught up in confusing platforms.

Looking For Retirement Income Jobs? Have You Tried Blogging?

One thing about retirement is you find yourself with a lot of time to do whatever you want. But, the problem with this is you have more time to spend money and less time making it. So, the status quo says. However, for many retirees they are finding that they barely have enough money to make ends meet with paying bills, insurance and a mortgage or rental. It sucks every penny out of many of retirees. It’s at this time many need to look for retirement income jobs.

Being retired at an early age I found myself in a similar situation where I wanted to downsize and was really over the whole chasing the dream thing. I had done everything I felt I could physically to make a living as a US Marine and then as an electrician. At the end of the day I never really had a lot of money, couldn’t really save enough for a decent nest egg. 

When I hit my late 40’s I realized that it was over for me as far as the manual work went. A bout of meningitis broke the camel’s back and I was back to square one. I began to simplify my life and put the working for the man behind me and looked to the future. 

But what future if I didn’t have enough money to enjoy what it was?

Change Your Direction, Change Your Life!95bada6b43b2ca25806f7bf93150bb531529532359 cropped optimized - Looking For Retirement Income Jobs? Have You Tried Blogging?

I realized at my late 40’s that my life had changed directions. I needed to accept the change or be destined to be living on a meager set income the rest of my life. In all honesty that didn’t bother me too much. In my case less was more. But I wanted to still be productive and try and earn some extra money. 

I had heard about blogging for an income online and promoting digital products. I wanted to learn more so I searched out some blogging platforms and began writing for companies. Eventually I found affiliate marketing and that was when the light turned on. I could write my own content and promote my own products online. I joined a leading blogging platform and the rest was history. 


Once I began learning the way affiliate marketing works, I began to blog ironically about how to blog and earn an income. That’s when this website was born. On my little small desk in my modest house. At first I didn’t know what I was getting into but I kept blogging and eventually at about a little over six months in, I made my first comission. It wasn’t much but I proved to myself that I could make an income doing something other than busting my butt. 

Retirement Doesn’t Have To Be Spent In Poverty!

With the way the economy is and a lack of jobs for people over 50 many are living on just over $1000.00 a month scraping by each day with little hope for any long term dreams coming true. And the clock keeps ticking. I realized that and now my website is over 2 1/2 years old and is making money. Not a ton and I’m not rich but this blogging for an income has helped me more that just in the money department. 

I have gained some self esteem, learned all about the digital marketing industry and have met some awesome people. I have also found that yes I do still have some skills left and I am really pretty content with life now. I don’t worry that I won’t be able to earn money on my own. If this sounds like something you would be interested in doing I encourage you to give it a try. This is one of the retirement income jobs that works!
