Can I Really Find Alternative Income Online, if I Quit My Job?

alternative incomeI get a ton of emails from people that are looking for alternative ways to earn income; the first place they look for is online.

Yea, they even Googled! _How do I make money online?_ or _Is making money online a scam?_

Recently somebody asked me if there were ways that she could replace the money she was making offline ($2000 per month) with resources online. It took me a second to tell her. YES YOU CAN!!

Listen, if you’re that person, you don’t have to worry. I will be honest though, if you’ve never used a computer before the learning curve can be pretty long before you start seeing profits coming in sometimes.

Some people will join a “Master Mind” and crush it in a month though. But you have to be disciplined, and not get information-overloaded. A lot of us honest online marketers will tell you the truth. _*We made this mistake.*_

Like I said, if you’re disciplined, you can make this a walk in the park and start making profits in no time, leveraging the power of the Internet.

I’ve been doing this Internet thing for over 18 months now, so I can say I know a little bit. I’ve read the books and blogs, joined master minds and spent money on online scams; and I know the secret to replacing that offline income with alternative income resources.

Here are a few alternative resources to begin your journey and free yourself from that 9 to 5 that you dread going to every morning. These are people that DO earn money on the Internet and were average people just like you and me…

Check them out:

  • Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income

The person that I have the utmost respect for, Pat Flynn, runs a blog called smartpassiveincome.com where he give a lot of advice and tips to become successful online and start making a healthy passive income Pat makes money online in so many different ways and he’s always sharing the best ways to do this with his readers. The way Pat started was writing on eHow, but he then created a site based on his notes for a test (you need to hear the whole story)…

Anyway I recommend you visit smartpassiveincome.com.

  • Darren and Yaro “The Kings of Blogging I Call Them”

Another two people in the Internet world that make a full-time, if not more, income online through blogging are Darren Rowse and Yaro Starak. I put them together because they have blogs that teach beginners and pros how to blog better, and more. Darren’s blog is called Problogger.net and Yaro’s is Entrepreneurs-Journey.com. If you’re just a newbie, use the information that they have. It’s really amazing!

  • Glen Allsop from Viperchill

This guy is only 20 years old, but the reputation he has online for making money is incredible! Glen Allsop, from Viperchill.com, has a new site about viral marketing that always produces MUST READ content. I like this blog very much and I feel like I learn something new every time I read his posts. Glen pretty much creates mini-sites that sell products through affiliate marketing. He also makes a full-time income, and, again, he’s only 20.

There you have it…

Four people that, combined all together, have over 10 alternative ways they make money online. They don’t scam, hype or make false promises. Everything they have is because of hard work. Thanks to the opportunities of the Internet these guys don’t have to go to a 9 to 5 job.

If you want to quit your job, to start making money online, don’t do it just yet. It takes time to learn it and you want to make sure you are learning from the right people. These four guys should be in your bookmarks immediately…

One last thing. The biggest mistake I made when I started was NOT wanting to spend money on courses and master minds. After about six months I took a leap of faith and I started buying ebooks and what not. I’ll be honest…I got scammed some times, but it was because I was too new and I didn’t know who was real and who was not. And in some situations it wasn’t that I got scammed, it was just

Luckily, after I joined niche profit classroom (affiliate) I learned how important it is to be a part of a group or membership. It only cost $1 dollar to join, so I did it. I thought, what’s a dollar, you know? Well it was the most well spent dollar in my life. So glad I did it. Adam is the nicest guy ever and his membership speaks for itself.

If you know any other alternative income resources, besides blogging, niche sites, mobile apps, and info products, be kind and share them below in the comments section. If you know any membership sites also I don’t mind if you leave a link as long as it’s not spam. Thanks!

  • Hi Wilson,

    An awesome list of resources here.

    I am familiar with Darren and Glen. They are giants in the industry and worthy mentors. I look forward to stopping by Pat and Yaro’s sites.

    As for the making online gig I’ve had a similar journey. Battle scars are a necessary part of venturing into the online arena. With experience you learn what works and more importantly what doesn’t. This is why it’s critical to match up with a a good mentor or program: they will be quick to share their mistakes with you so that you don’t have to waste time making the same errors.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • I think that investing in certain information products and joining certain membership sites can definitely be helpful. Ultimately, I think that one needs to identify, first and foremost, what your goals and objectives are. WHO is your target audience? WHAT kind of content do they respond well to? HOW are you going to reach them? And what are your motivations for doing this?

    If you can answer those few questions, outline an agenda, then I’d say that you’re well on your way.
