Projects, Projects, Projects

Posted on 06 May 2009 by SonHouse

One of the things I’ve learned over the years as a search engine marketer is to keep various projects in the works so that your income levels will be as strong as possible at the end of each month no matter what may happen to a particular project.

My friends and family are always curious to know how much money I am able to make online each month and I try and explain that in order to be truly successful online you need to have multiple streams of income coming in each month to make ends meet.

I am able to do that by developing my own products, both online and off, managing affiliate offers through ppc and seo, developing joint venture partnerships, consulting for both seo and ppc, and monetizing my various online activities with contextual advertising.

So, I am always looking for the next project or jv partnership to add to the stable.

I’ve been able to piece together a nice monthly income from the various projects that I have working at any one time.  The thinking there is that if one of the income streams dries up the others will be there to pick up the slack and hold me through until I get a new project or idea launched.

For the last 6 months or so, I’ve been fine tuning some of the projects I have and continue to brainstorm new ideas as well.

Some may argue that you need to focus and concentrate on one thing.  The problem I have there is the internet changes so fast that if you’re not careful, you may get left behind while you are working on just that one idea or project.

I’ve had a lot going on recently, having traveled to my first affiliate summit in Las Vegas in January, established some strong jv partners, built a small seo and ppc consulting company and continued to launch my own ppc and seo campaigns in the affiliate space.

In addition to all of that, I still have my day job.  Since the economy is what it is and my affiliate offers tend to be hot and cold, I figured it would be wise to continue with my day job for a bit longer until things settle down.

Keep those projects coming and don’t let your ideas fall by the wayside. Write them down, continue to do your research, read as much as you can, listen to as many podcasts as you can, and network as much as possible.  The great thing about the internet is the sky is truly the limit.  Work hard and learn as much as you can and you will soon be living the lifestyle you have always dreamed of…..
