Five Ways You Can Earn Money From Your Laptop

The internet has given everyday people like you and me the opportunity to be able to literally earn money straight from our laptops.

It’s true, as long as you have an internet connection then you can earn an income stream from your laptop.

Imagine that for a second.

You could work anywhere in the world and not be tied to any location. You really would have the ultimate freedom.

This post is going to outline five ways in which you can make this possible.

#1 Affiliate Marketing

The affiliate marketing model is great because you can get started straight away as you do not need any products of your own. The beauty of affiliate marketing is you are able to sell other people’s products and for that, they will give you a commission.

Now, it depends largely on the products you are selling as to what level of commission you will earn. Platforms like Amazon allow you to promote and sell anything on their site and the commissions range from 2% to 10%.

Amazon is great for marketers who want to build a long term affiliate business on a passive scale. What I mean by that is that they usually build businesses that run themselves after a while.

For example, a niche website that offers reviews of products. This is a typical example of what a successful Amazon affiliate marketer would do.

There are plenty of other affiliate options though.

You could promote digital products.

These come with much higher rewards because the overheads are far lower. A digital product only needs to be created once and it can be sold thousands of times over.

So, naturally the product owners will offer higher commissions.

Sites like Clickbank and JVZoo have digital products in their marketplace that even offer 100% commissions. Meaning you will be credited with the full price of the sale.

But most of the time a 50% commission is common, so promote a $100 product and you will earn $50 for EVERY SALE you make.

The way it is set up is you are given a special and unique link that you can share. When people click on this link the trackers know it is your link and any subsequent sales are therefore credited to you.

The best way to really scale this way of making money from your laptop is to build your own email list. Once you have a list of email subscribers you can send them affiliate offers via email.

So, let’s say you have an email list of 1000 subscribers.

With a 10% open rate.

This means that you could send an affiliate product offer to your email list and even if only 3% of the 10% who actually open the emails go on the buy the product you would make 3 sales every email you send.

So, going back to our $50 commission product that would be a nice $150 you would make from sending ONE email.

That’s the really amazing power of affiliate marketing.

#2 Freelance Web Design

Long gone are the days of having to learn years and years of code to be able to develop and build a website.

There are so many drag and drop builders now on the market that practically anyone can create a decent looking website.

I am not downgrading the industry at all and there are still plenty of skills involved but it has become a lot easier and this is also good news for freelancers looking to get into the industry.

web designer at work

WordPress, Squarespace, and Wix are three website builders that once you get to grips with the basics are all suitable and practical to build great-looking websites.

For a basic 5-page website for a local business that consists of a Home page, About page, Services, Contact and a Blog you could charge at least $1000.

Once you get to grips with it you could quite easily knock one of these websites up for a client in a matter of days.

Land yourself two clients a month and that’s $2000 a month for about one week’s work if you are organised.

There are upsells and monthly contracts you can get with this too.

For example, you could self-host the client websites on your server space and offer a monthly maintenance program.

All websites need updating and a little bit of TLC now and again to make sure they are still optimised and running smoothly.

This is really not a lot of work for the freelancer. Maybe just ten minutes per site per month is all you need to do.

For this though you could charge $50 a month on top of the cost for the initial build.

Once you land ten clients that’s another $500 per month coming in each and every month.

When a company or individual has a website, it’s very unusual for them to get rid of it as it will be bringing them in business for years to come and they will offset the costs of running in into their business costs which is good news for you.

#3 Print on Demand

Over the last five years of so Print On Demand (POD) websites have really sprung up in large. This business model is essentially aimed at people who have a small eye for design.

You see, with POD sites you are able to list your designs on things like T-Shirts, Hoodies, Mugs, Phone Cases, and other merchandise and you can then sell them and get a cut of the sale price.

With POD you hold no inventory, you do not have to do any packing or shipping, you do not deal with any customer questions nor do you have to deal with any customer returns.

print on demand t-shirts

Your job is to come up with designs and get your products seen.

It is great model for that.

There are many companies that offer print on demand these days such as Amazon Merch, Printify, Teespring, Sunfrog among many others.

So, a bit like the affiliate marketing model this is the same.

You design a T-shirt say, promote it and share it around on social media and if you make some sales the company will print it and dispatch it for you.

And you collect the commissions.

Sounds good hey?

It really is.

If you are into design then check out Print On Demand – it could change your life.

#4 Kindle Publishing Author

Amazon has also gifted us with the ability to become self-published authors in recent times too. This opportunity is great for anyone who fancies themselves as a writer.

In fact, you don’t even need to write the book yourself. More on that later.

But for now, lets say you are happy to write the books yourself.

Amazon Kindle is an amazing platform which will allow you to publish your work and sell it via the Kindle program.

So, these will be digital copies of your book.

Again, create something once and sell it over and over. Sound familiar?

These books do not have to be the next War and Peace either. You can literally write a series of short stories on just about anything that has an audience.

So, categories like Romance, Sci-Fi, Crime etc do really well here.

A series of short stories work well as they can get people “hooked” so after they have purchased the first book the author can leave them hanging for more so they can go on to buy the other ones in the series.

Kindle books do not just have to be fiction stories either. You can also write non-fiction books on just about any topic.

A short 20,000 word book can sell for $5.99 leaving you with up to 60% commission for each sale.

Again, like the Merch above, imagine if you have a small portfolio of 10 books each selling one copy a day.

short stories on kindle

Before you know it you would have a nice side income stream.

Now, I mentioned above that you do not even need to do the writing yourself.

You can outsource this part. Head over to one of the many freelance websites and put a listing outlining the requirements of your book and see if any freelancers come forward with a pitch.

After this you can negotiate a price and they can start the work for you.

Once delivered you can either assign your name to the book or go with a pen name (as many authors do).

Covers are crucial with Kindle books, arguably one of the most important factors in sales.

These are what gets the customer initially clicking on the book to see if they want to buy it or not. So, do not scrimp here. Make sure you have great looking covers, again you can outsource this work if you are not set up to do it yourself.

#5 Day Trading

The fifth and final method I would like to talk about is day trading. You can trade stocks, Forex markets or Crypto markets daily for profits if you know what you are doing.

However, it is worth treading with caution here if you have no experience. Most traders actually go on to lose money in the markets.

But, those with a solid staking plan, a good investment strategy, and a firm discipline can go on to make a very healthy income stream indeed.

day trading

There are many apps and websites now that offer trading services. Gone are the days where you need to hire a broker to get your funds in place.

Websites like eToro or Trading 212 offer commission free trading with very little minimum entry points so you can get started with very little risk to your money.

When I say little risk, I mean you do not have to deposit large sums to get started. There is always risks with ANY form of trading and Forex, stocks or Crypto trading is no different.

You should start off with a practice account first to get yourself familiar with the process.

Learn the absolute basics before you ever go on to using your real money.

When you get up to a decent standard and your confidence is high you can make a very handsome amount each day. It is possible for day traders to make up to $1000 per day.

There is so much money exchanged each day in the markets that you only have to extract a tiny amount to become a very successful day trader.

Look out for highly volatile stocks that move each day. This is where you can strike.

The Six Figure Email & Book Business

In this article you will be shown how to build a six figure business using simple emails and eBooks.

The concept is pretty basic in its approach but do not let that fool you, this is an incredibly profitable and powerful business model if implemented correctly.

If you read my other article: How This One Thing You Do Every Day Can Make You A Lot Of Money, you will know how profitable writing can be. In this article I will show you how creating a simple eBook can grow into a six figure a year business.

The email and book business is also known as the one book funnel. It requires writing one book which you either sell or give away in exchange for an email address. 

If the book is being sold for a low price of £4.99 (as an example) then at the point of purchase you will offer other higher priced items as part of the book funnel.

If you are giving the book away you may try and offer another product for purchase but normally you do that later via email.

The whole idea behind this business is that you build an email list of people who are interested in learning more about what it is that you are offering. 

Filter Out The Wheat From The Chaff

The people on the list need to be niche specific. When I say niche specific, think of it like this; if you were a food stall owner intending to sell vegan food, you would need to have an audience of people who are either vegan or interested in vegan food. 

You wouldn’t want to try and sell venison burgers to vegans or vegetarians nor would you want to try and sell tofu burgers to die hard meat eaters.

It would be futile to even attempt it. You wouldn’t make any money if you tried to sell your products to people who didn’t want them or appreciate them.

You need to have an audience which is congruent with what you are selling.

The reason for this is that you will create a funnel of products which you will promote via email to the people who have bought your book. Products which are relevant to the content of your book.

One of the best ways to get a list of niche specific people is to sell the book. When you give a book away for free, you get a lot of freebie seekers and tire kickers who are curious to see what your book is all about. 

There is nothing wrong with that, but you will end up with an email list with a lot of people who have no intention of buying from you which could cost you money in autoresponder fees.

You do not want people who are not interested in buying from you. They are cold leads and trying to turn them into buyers is hard work, if not impossible. Whereas if you sell your book, those who have bought it have an interest in what you have to say other than simple curiosity. 

They have made the conscious decision to hand money over to see what it is that you are sharing. This means that they are warm leads. They choose to know more and it is likely that they will buy from you again. 

It is far easier to sell to someone who has already bought a product off you than it is to try and sell something to someone who hasn’t.

You need warm leads for this business.

It Is A Lot Easier To Start A Six Figure Business Than You Think

The whole process isn’t really hard in practice. The ebook is easy to write. The landing page/sales page is easy to create using web builders like WordPress and the delivery of your product is done via an email autoresponder like Aweber.

This whole process has built many six and seven figure businesses. The business itself is an information publishing business focusing on email as the main marketing tool.

That and the one book funnel. The funnel is a series of offers which are either shown to the book buyer at the time of buying such as a one time offer or as an offer bump, or they are promoted later to the book buyer via a series of emails.

The person who has handed money over for your book has shown an interest in what you have to teach and so they will very likely be interested in buying your other products which complement and enhance the content in the book.

The One Book Business Card

The book which you sell is like a business card but a thousand times better. It doesn’t just have your name and contact details on it, it has important information, case studies and stories showcasing your skills and knowledge.

It helps build a rapport with your reader and shows them that you know what you claim to know and that you can do what you say you can do. These books are a great way to find clients and sell your services and products.

Even without a book funnel, one book can generate a lot of work and help bring in clients if you are a service provider. If you sell products, one book can make sales for you even when you are sleeping.

Build a funnel which incorporates other products and you have a greater chance of building a six figure a year business. People have done it in a few months of launching their book funnel. I am not going to say that this happens a lot to everyone. It is a rare occurrence but it has been known.

The Offer Bumps And One Time Offer

When you build a funnel for your one book you should add offer bumps and a one time offer at the point of sale. When a person is going through the process of paying for your book, they should be shown one or several other products which go with the book.

For example; if you are selling a book on How To Make Money As A Freelance Writer Starting Today, you could offer them a second PDF product The Freelance Writers Client Getting Checklist for £7. 

This could then be followed by another PDF product such as The Fastest Way To Find High Paying Clients at a price of £47 and then to finish off, you could offer them a one time only offer of a 1 hour video case study called How I Attracted £30,000 Worth Of Client Work In 24 Hours priced at £97.

If one person who bought your book at £4.99 went on to buy all of the other products, you have then generated a total of £155.99.

Not everyone who buys your book is going to buy any of the offers you show them at the time of buying, however, you only need a small percentage to buy to push your profits up.

If you had 2,000 people buy your book and only 1% of those people bought any of your other products, you have 20 people giving you more money which could soon add up.

If you were selling the book alone, you would only have 2,000 people paying you £4.99 but with a funnel you will generate more money from that sale. We haven’t even discussed the even higher priced items you will promote to your growing list of book buyers.

Keeping with the freelance writing theme, those who have bought your book How To Make Money As A Freelance Writer Starting Today and found it useful and really want to work as a freelance writer, may purchase a higher priced item.

Such as an online training course at £1,997 or even a £10,000 done for you package where the book author and his team find them clients who will pay them £10,000 or more each month.

Imagine now having 25 people pay you £1,997 and 3 people paying you £10,000 for your done for you service?

Now you have an additional £79,925 to add to the income generated from your other product sales. All of which has come from the same advertising spend.

The Book Pays For The Advertising

You shouldn’t expect the book itself to make you any money, the book sales should pay for the advertising you run to drive people to your books sales page.

It is possible that the actual money earned from the book sales itself could be a loss when compared to the money spent on adverts.

It is the offer bumps and the one time offer which pushes the income up and turns a loss into a profit. One you are at break-even or running at a profit, you can then ramp up your advertising and send more people to your book and make more sales.

The more people who buy your book means that you are growing a bigger email list which means that you get the opportunity to promote your other more expensive products to more people.

The Automated Email Follow Up Sequence

Now that you have a growing email list, more people will be exposed to your automatic email follow up sequence which they will be added to when they buy.

This is where you set up a series of emails which are sent out each day. The sequence is usually between 7 and 30 emails. You can add more if you wish. Each email goes out 1 or 2 days after the previous one and will all have further useful information regarding the niche topic your book is about.

They will also give the buyers another chance to buy the offer bumps and maybe even the one time offer – cheeky I know but who says you cannot offer it to buyers again? It isn’t on sale to the general public.

You will also send out regular broadcast emails when you are ready to launch your higher priced items if they are not already lined up in your follow up sequence. This is where the big numbers can come in. And remember, this list was built from the initial book sales. 

The advertising costs which were originally at a loss are now about to be responsible for a wave of cash into your bank account when people buy your higher priced items.

Instead of 25 people buying your £1,997 product in the earlier example,you now might have 50, 75 or more and instead of 3 people paying you £10,000 for you to find them high paying clients, you could have 7, 11 or even 18. 

Imagine having over 100 people paying you £1,997 and 18 people paying you £10,000. It is doable. 

Your income now has gone flying past the six figure mark.

All from selling one book.

You can if you wish, write another book, create other products and set up another funnel to run alongside your first book funnel.

With most of the products being either PDFs and online video with adverts sending them to sales pages which take automatic payments, a funnel runs automatically and only needs managing.

How This One Thing You Do Every Day Can Make YOU A Lot Of Money

Are you looking for a way to make six figures or more a year?

Or maybe you are just looking at making a few thousand a month without a lot of hard work.

In this report, I am going to tell you about one way to make money which has been around for centuries and is one of the best, if not THE best way to make money.

This has turned regular people into millionaires, multi-millionaires and even some into billionaires.

People look for all kinds of ways to make money and many methods require a lot of hard physical work which has to be repeated to make more money. 

This method does not require a lot of hard work nor does it need to be repeated. You see, this method of making money generally requires doing the bulk of the work just once. 

Once the work has been completed, it can keep on generating money for months and years after. Sometimes the work can still be making money decades after it was finished.

So what is it that I am referring to?

I am referring to…

The Written Word!

Writing is incredibly profitable yet very few people actually realise it.

It is something which nearly everyone does at least once a day. Even if it is to write a status on Facebook or Instagram, most people do some form of writing each day. It is one of the easiest things a person can do, and it can be one of the most profitable things a person can do.

I am not necessarily talking about becoming an author like JK Rowling or Roald Dahl, even though they are a perfect example of how a collection of written words can still sell books years and decades after they have been finished.

You do not need to be the next Stephen King or James Patterson to make money from writing.  You do not need to be brilliant at creating movies in people’s minds. 

You can quite easily make a tonne of money simply writing a book teaching or explaining in great deal a subject which people want to know about. This is known as information publishing… and it can be incredibly profitable.

How Publishing Information Puts Pounds In Your Pocket

Humans like to learn. In fact, as a species it is vital that we learn. It is how we as a species and a society evolve. Individually, learning is what takes us from being hungry to being fed, from being cold to being warm, from being vulnerable to being secure and from being poor to being wealthy.

Education and learning takes us to places we would not normally go.

And today, the majority of the learning is done via the written word. People learn by reading books, manuals, newsletters and papers. They can be physical books and manuals or they can be online digital versions like eBooks and PDFs.

The written word is powerful. Do the writing once and get paid over and over again.

Even if people learn via a video and not a book, the script was probably written and the video may include subtitles. The written word is the number one way to teach and communicate.

At The Beginning There Was A Word, And That Word Was…

You will no doubt be thinking that there is more to this business than just writing words and that it cannot be that simple. You are both right… and wrong.

You see, a written book or manual can make you money, but an unwritten one cannot. 

Yes you will need to add your book to a website or a merchant site like Amazon. And yes you will need to create a payment button and you will need to send people to your books sales page. But they are all relatively easy to do, but without a book, they will not make you any money.

Things like book covers, sales letter pages and advertising can be done by other people later once the book or manual is written. But always remember, it is the written word which makes the money.

It is the information inside the book and the words written on the sales page which will generate the money. 

And believe it or not, writing a book is incredibly easy to do too. Far easier than your probably first thought.

You can write the bulk of the book by talking into your phone and using software or a transcription service to convert your spoken words into written text. When you have a document full of transcription, you can edit away and craft a book the same way a sculptor chips away at stone to create a statue.

There are people who have written a book within a week and have it online making sales the week after. If a person can write a book in a week, then technically they could write 52 books in a year.

Obviously I am not taking into consideration the research required, tiredness and writers fatigue but, there is no reason why a person cannot write a new book each month and have 12 new titles for sale in one year.

The Six Figure Book Business

Now imagine that you priced your books at £9.99 each – which is a very respectful price for an information book, you can sell them for a lot more – and that you sold just three copies of each book a day.

You would earn £131,268.60 in one year. (If all 12 books were available at the same time)

3 x 12 = 36 x £9.99 = £359.64 x 365 = £131,268.60

Obviously, not all of your books will sell 3 copies each and every day. Some may sell more and some may go a day or two without selling any copies. But the possibility is there.

When your books are written and online, then they can be bought. If they are not written there is nothing to buy and the possibility to make money is not there.

A collection of Roald Dahl‘s popular children’s books.

Once you have written a book you start another. So after one year and 12 books online, a new year means 12 more books. After two years you now have 24 books online all priced at £9.99.

Or, if you prefer, you can build an email list of people who are interested in a specific topic and build a book funnel. That will ramp up your potential to make six figures without having to write 12 or more books.

You can learn more about that here: The Six Figure Email & Book Business.

Work Once, Sell Forever

It is vitally important that you know and remember this, when you create an information product like a book, you do the work once and get paid over and over again.

Unlike a builder who gets paid for building a house and then needs to build another house to earn more money. A person who writes a book or creates an information product only has to make the product once and they can be paid selling that same one product for many years to come.

People still buy books by Stephen King, J K Rowling, Dr Seuss, Roald Dahl and James Patterson many years after they were first released.

The Power Of Multiple Income Streams

When you have one product or book written, you start another one. You are then creating a second income stream. We know that rich people are wealthy because they create multiple income streams. 

Instead of having just the one monthly income coming in like an employee who works for a wage, the wealthy person has several incomes coming. And they will not be wage based either.

They will have it set up so that they are earning money on autopilot. Books and information products are like that. When you have a portfolio of books all selling a few copies each day, you have multiple income streams.

Imagine you have a book making £500 each month in sales. £500 itself isn’t a lot. I doubt it will cover all of your living costs and it certainly won’t keep the wolves from the door as the saying goes.

But what if you had 5 books all earning £500 a month?

You are now earning £2,500 a month. And you do not need to do a full month’s graft to earn it either.

You could quite easily be making sales while taking a pleasant stroll through a park or enjoying coffee and cake at your favourite high street coffee shop.

One Letter From Retirement: Earn A Year’s Wage In One Week

There are many ways you can make a lot of money with the written word. One of the most profitable ways to make a lot of money which does not require you to write a lot of books is to write sales letters. You can write your own sales letters for your own information products or you can write them for other people and be paid for them.

To learn how you can make more than a year’s wage writing just one sales letter – which will be needed to sell your own books – check out One Letter From Retirement.

Three Ways To Make Money From Amazon While You Sleep

Earning money while you sleep is really the passive income dream. Thankfully in 2021 you really have no excuse now if you want to make this a reality.

We are incredibly lucky to be living in the information age, and the technology we have at our disposal can really leapfrog your desire to earn money while you sleep.

Throughout this post I will show you three ways in which you can make it happen, just using the Amazon platform.

You will just need to apply what you learn; nothing is a get rich quick scheme. They will all require effort on your behalf.

Number #1 – Publish short books on Amazon Kindle

Amazon Kindle is a great place to list your books digitally. You can knock up a book on pretty much any subject matter – there will be an audience for it, get a book cover designed which you can outsource, and then list your books up for sale on the platform.

These do not have to be really long pieces of work. You can write a book around 20,000 words and that will be more than enough to publish as a short story or non-fiction piece.

The beauty of creating digital books and publishing them on Amazon Kindle is once they are published they will stay so for as long as you keep them there.

And they can sell many times over and over.

So, you may have to do a bit of work upfront to actually write the book but once you have done that you can sell it forever. No getting publishing deals, buying wholesale, selling in shops, or anything like that.

The business model is make it once – sell it multiple times.

Just imagine you have 100 Kindle books published on the platform and each one just sells a conservative 10 per month.

If you sold each one for just $5.99 and you only made $3 from each sale as profit (Amazon take their cut) you would still be making $3000 completely on autopilot.

This is why the Amazon Kindle platform appeals to many new age writers these days.

Well worth checking out if you are a master of the written word.

Even if you don’t really consider yourself a great writer you can even outsource this part. You do not have to publish under your real name, you can use a pen name so really it doesn’t matter who writes the book for you.

Number #2 – Start a Print on Demand T-Shirt Business

This is a great passive income stream for designers. Did you know you can sell t-shirts online on websites where you do not need to hold any stock, do any shipping or packaging, or even deal with any customer queries?

That’s right, your job is to simply list your designs on t-shirts and leave the rest to the website. Amazon Merch is a huge platform but there is always a waiting list for new designers, however, there are many more where you can get started listing your designs right away.

Some other popular print on demand platforms include:

  • Printful
  • Printify
  • RedBubble
  • Society6
  • SunFrog
  • Zazzle

You really have the pick of the bunch when it comes to this passive income stream.

Your job is to come up with designs. You can literally jump on popular trends. If there is an election coming up for example this can be a great time to get into print on demand. People go nuts for their supported party and love to wear shirts to show their true colours.

Do not let YOUR feelings get in the way. Just make some designs and make some money!

Again, like the Kindle method above you will only need to make the design once and then you can sell the shirt over and over. Well, the company you list it with will do the selling.

You will make a cut from every sale. Let’s say you sell the shirts for around $20, you could expect to make around $8 yourself each and every sale.

So, again let’s do some basic math. If you have 100 designs up and they each just make ONE sale a month. That is $800 a month you will be making a month.

Do the work upfront – get paid multiple times over.

The great thing about shirt designs is they do not have to take very long to do at all. Even just a simple slogan or a few words can sell thousands of prints.

Its all about the message and striking a nerve with the buyers.

Again, political, controversial shirts do well here.

So – if you like design then this could be a great way for you to earn some money while you sleep.

Number #3 – Sell Affiliate Products Using Amazon Associates

Did you know that you are able to promote any Amazon product and earn a commission if someone uses your link then goes on to buy it?

Well, you can.

You need to sign up to the Amazon associates program which is free and then you are all set.

This will allow you to get an affiliate link from any product on the website. Then you can share this link or better still insert these links in a website and then when anyone goes on to buy from this link you are credited with the commission.

Commission rates vary depending on the product category but even if you are only making 2% per sale it all adds up.

The trick here is to be niche.

Build a website that is based around one topic, one industry, or one niche and then write reviews of products on Amazon.

Let’s take Lawnmowers for an example.

You could create a website all about lawn care, provide useful information around the topic. Check out the forums and questions and answers about it.

Then when you have a few decent share-worthy articles up on the website you could start to do some review type posts about lawnmowers.

Titles like “Best Lawnmowers Under $200” or “Best Rotary Blade Lawnmowers for 2021” are a good place to start and then within the blog post can place your affiliate links.

Hopefully, when people have read your reviews, they will then make the decision to head over to Amazon to complete their purchase.

The best part about the Amazon affiliate system is that when a user clicks through to the site via your link ANYTHING they buy during this visit will be credited to you as a sale.

So, let’s say they head over to buy a lawnmower but also grab some clothes and some other bits too while they are there.

You will earn commissions on EVERYTHING they buy during that visit.

This is a nice little bonus with the Amazon affiliate system.

So – create a niche website, write a ton of articles that will rank in the search engines, and then you will be well and truly on your way to earning from Amazon using their affiliate system.

Conclusion

I hope I have outlined three ways here using Amazon where you can in fact earn money while you sleep.

It is entirely possible.

Perhaps the easiest entry is the T-Shirts model if you have some design experience. However, long term they are all great options and I know many marketers who do all three!

How To Use What Little Money You Have To Build Wealth

Everyone wants more money. For some people it is just a desire to have more and do more. Money is a tool which can give people a better life. It can enable people to do more and have more freedom.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who need more money than what they currently have. It isn’t a mere desire to have and do more, for some people, they simply want a life with a little extra peace of mind.

They don’t want to simply exist and live a life where they have nothing left once the bills and expenses are all paid. They want to buy the odd luxury item and do some leisure activity without it being a constant internal discussion whether they can afford it or not.

They want one day where they can simply spend a fiver and know that it isn’t going to be incredibly detrimental to their lives. Every pound spent on something which is not a necessity is pushing them closer to having bailiffs banging at the door.

Having little spare money is a nightmare. Especially when money is the best tool to use to get more.

Wealthy people are wealthy because they mostly leverage what they have. It is said that poor people save for a rainy day and wealthy people invest for the future.

Wealthy people buy money.

A great example of buying money is the story of the guy who sat near to the bus stop for one of the busiest bus routes in Havana, Cuba. The bus company would not give change, if you didn’t have the exact change which was – at that time – 40 cents, you either lost 60 cents or didn’t ride the bus.

Most people who needed to use the bus had 1 peso notes. They needed to ride the bus, but they didn’t want to lose 60 cents. The guy who was sitting near the bus stop had a tin full of coins and he would buy 1 peso notes from the people wanting to ride the bus for 80 cents.

The soon-to-be bus passengers got the exact change for the bus and instead of losing 60 cents they were only 20 cents down, and the guy who was  buying the money was making 20 cents on every transaction.

He was a middleman business if you like. He was  making his money by helping people to save money and to get home. I imagine the bus company were not happy about it as they were missing out on a lot of income they were stealing from their passengers but that is a different story for a different day.

That guy was leveraging the money he had. He took all of his coins and swapped them for notes. He didn’t pop any spare money he had into a tin and hid it under the bed for a rainy day, he was using it to grow it.

Money grows when you use it. Obviously, you can lose money if you invest in the wrong things or something bad happens, but that doesn’t mean that you should fear using your money and not use it. If that was the case then Warren Buffett would not have become a billionaire.

When Warren Buffett was a young man, he was the polar opposite to his friends. Where they were buying the latest flash car on HP and spending what was left of their wages on wine, women and song. Warren was using his spare money to buy up stocks and shares.

I am sure that not every purchase or deal he has made in his life has been successful, I am more than certain that he has lost money at some time or another, but what is evident is that over the long run, using his money to buy money has paid off big time. 

He is incredibly wealthy and that is all down to his decision to leverage the money he had spare and not squander it on things which at the time would have been fun but in the long run would have been detrimental to his life.

Buffett could not see any logic in spending what little he had left on things which were not bringing anything back. Once rent and living costs were covered, the idea that his friends spent virtually the rest of their wages on a car which was depreciating in value, required ongoing costs such as fuel and wasn’t theirs until they had paid over the asking price for it made no sense to him.

It was a similar story with Roman Abramovich, he too decided to spend whatever money he had left out of his wages to buy stocks in the company he worked for. He was working in an oil field with his friends. Over the years, Roman kept buying shares until one day he was the major shareholder and the owner of the company.

As I am sure you know, Roman Abramovich is a billionaire. He is currently worth between 12 – 13 billion dollars. Not bad for a guy who decided to use his spare money to buy stocks and shares. If he and Warren Buffett had feared losing their money, their lives would be a lot different today.

Fear of losing money is understandable, but it also stops people from growing a large pot of money. Money is a tool with which you buy money in many different ways. But essentially, all that you are doing is buying money.

Whenever you buy a physical product at £5 and sell it for £7, you are making £2 per item. 

When you pay someone £30 to write an article for you which you sell to a website owner for £100, you have made £70.

When you pay someone £5,000 to write a sales letter for you which generates £50,000 in profit from extra product sales you have made £45,000. 

Whatever it is that you buy to sell or whatever service you pay for to help earn money, you have bought money. However you want to look at it,  spending money is simply buying money back. Money is the tool you use to make money. To make more money and to become wealthy, you must leverage money.

If you have little money to spare then you need to really sit down and work out what is the best use of that money, and also figure out other ways to increase your pot of spare money. 

I remember reading about a guy who saved over £350 by not buying drinks at work. Not once did he buy a drink from the vending machine in the factory he worked at. Instead he made drinks using the free water, kettle and kitchen area which was also provided by his place of work.

He would only drink black tea and because he didn’t have it strong, he would get two drinks out of each tea bag.

His cup was that big that it would accommodate two drinks from the drinks machine. With each drink costing £0.20 from the vending machine. He worked out that a £11 box of tea bags made the same amount of drinks that would have cost roughly £350 if bought from the vending machine.

The cost of those drinks from the vending machine was a week’s wages. He would have had to work a full 40 hour week to earn the money to pay for the same amount of drinks had he bought them from the factory drinks machine. Most of the guys in the factory bought their drinks. 

With that £350 saving, he was able to put the money to good use like investing in shares, or an online course, or buying stock to sell for a profit. He might have used it to help fund a much needed holiday  instead 

The point is, he saved a stack of money by not doing something which couldn’t have been a different way. He didn’t sacrifice not having a drink throughout the day, he still enjoyed big mugs of tea. He just didn’t pay over the odds for the privilege. There are a lot of things that people can do which can help free up a lot of money which can be put towards something better. Money that can be leveraged to build a bigger bank of cash.

Without money, you are not going to make money.

How To Earn A Years Wage In One Month Or Less

If you are struggling to believe that you can earn a year’s wage in one month then you are part of a large club. Most working people find it hard to believe that you can earn the equivalent of a full year’s wage in one month… but that doesn’t mean you can’t.

It simply means that you don’t know how to and have never really thought about it. You might be thinking that it is only for  those who have high flying careers, professional sports stars or bestselling authors… musicians… or film stars.

Well, you are wrong. Everyday people like you and I can generate a year’s income in a very short period of time… once you know how.

Before I reveal how some people earn a year’s wage in a month or less let’s first discuss what I mean by a year’s wage.

Here in the UK the average salary for 2020 is £29,600 which is £1,950 a month. There are people who earn more… and there are a lot of people who earn a lot less. So for the purpose of this article, what I call a year’s wage is £30,000 or less. 

However, as you will see when you read through the article that there are people who can generate several year’s wages in as little as a month doing what I am about to tell you.

In this article, I am going to discuss one way to generate a year’s income in a very short period of time. Now, before I go into too much detail, I want you to know that like most things in life, you may need to do a bit of practice and work before you generate that full year’s income in one sitting… in most cases.

David Beckham had to learn to play football first before he was paid megabucks, he even played games for Manchester United for a modest monthly wage before he was banking tens of thousands per game.

However, I want you to also know that what I am about to tell you can take less time to master than a world cup winning penalty spot kick. What I am going to share with you now, requires you to do something which you already do on a daily basis. 

You have already learned 75-80% of what you need to do with this incredibly profitable business.

I am talking about writing and conversation.

I am more than certain that you spend at least some of your day talking to people and writing emails, texts and social media updates.

You have been writing and talking since your days at school and this is how you make a year’s wage in a month… maybe even less.

If you can write in basic conversational English – or whatever your native tongue is – then you have the necessary qualifications and skills for this business. To earn the equivalent to a year’s wage in a month… or less… you simply have to write letters.

Ok, so these are not the same kind of letters you write to your gran or your bestie, but they are letters nonetheless.

‘The most successful letter I wrote…and one of the shortest at two pages of A4…has pulled in over £5 Million so far, and it’s still coming in. I wrote that one way back in 1998 – in an afternoon!’ – John Harrison, Streetwise Publications

These are simple sales letters.

‘Coming right up to date, the most recent letter, which I wrote just last week, brought in over £40,000 in the first two days after being read by less than a thousand people. I fully expect that one to bring in over £1 Million over the next two or three years.’ – John Harrison, Streetwise Publications

Ok, as I said earlier, you are going to need to learn a new set of skills such as being able to write a successful sales letter, but as I also said, you already have 75-80% of the necessary skill which is basic writing and conversation.

The last 20-25% can be easily learned. Most of it is buyer psychology which is information that is readily available in books and manuals and knowing how to format a sales letter.

This is where it gets even better…

The formatting of a sales letter has been tried, tested and perfected over 100 years. 

There is a popular template to follow which includes a series of important elements. Once you know these elements and know the template inside out, you are in the position to make a year’s wage or more in a month or less.

Writing sales letters is also known as copywriting and top copywriters like Dan Kennedy can be paid a lot of money for a single sales letter which… as you saw in the first quote by John Harrison, can take as little as half a day to write.

‘I am paid from $50,000.00 to $150,000.00 to as much as $2 million plus royalties for such a campaign…’

– Dan Kennedy, author of Renegade Millionaire

Sales letters, advertisements, campaigns, whatever you want to call them, command a high price because they are results focused. 

A successful sales letter can generate millions in sales.

The reason you and others have never understood how a person can earn a year’s wage in a month or less – remember John Harrison has made over £5 Million for one afternoon’s work – is that you and many others are in the habit of exchanging your time for money. And you do not know anything else.

You are paid for the time you spend at work. It is the same each and every day. Even self-employed people like builders who charge on a per job basis work out a price based on how long it should take them plus materials. It is always a scenario where you exchange your time for money.

Whereas writing a sales letter is about the result, the long term gain. A sales letter writer who has a track record of being able to deliver a successful sales letter generating a lot of money and sales can command tens of thousands for his writing even if it takes no longer than a month to complete.

As far as the client is concerned, the result is the most important factor to price, not how long it took to write. If the sales letter has the potential to generate a million pounds over a year or two, they do not care if that sales letter took less than a week to write. It will be worth the £30,000 they paid for it.

A successful copywriter can work for a month, earn enough for the year and take the rest of the year off if they so wish. This is the ultimate freedom skill and freedom business.

Why do I say that it is the ultimate freedom skill and freedom business?

Because it is writing… writing is an incredibly profitable skill to have. It can be done from anywhere in the world, it requires very little equipment, can be done at any time of the day and night, and people will always need writing.

But not just that, as a copywriter who specialises in writing sales letters and sales copy, you can command a higher price than other forms or writing and as we know, people and businesses will always need sales letters and sales copy to help sell their services and products.

As a sales letter writer you can write your own sales letters and sell your own products. As a writer of sales letters you will understand buyer psychology and persuasion techniques, you will understand the power of words and what words alone can do.

As well as how to craft great adverts and sales letters, you will also be able to create your own products adding to the freedom of this business model.

You will be able to create a book or product and the accompanying sales letter and have it online in record time ready to sell 24/7/365.

Being a copywriter is the ultimate freedom business… it’s just that you didn’t know about it… until now.

The great news is that the best performing sales letters are those which are easy to understand and are in a basic conversational language. You DO NOT need to be great at writing, you do not need to be a professor in linguistics or a literary wordsmith to become a top class high earning sales letter writer. 

You just need to know how to write in simple sentences, write like you are talking to a friend and layout everything in a simple way.

Anything which you do not know can be learned and it can be learned from those who have done it themselves. The best way to master something is to do exactly what a successful person has done before you. There are many successful sales letter writers who can teach you their knowledge and show you the template and formula they use to create million pound generating sales letters.

Unfortunately, most of them will charge you an arm and a leg to teach you what they know. Which is understandable considering that it is incredibly powerful information. This is knowledge which can generate a lot of money and give you a lot of freedom. The benefits of being a highly paid sales letter writer cannot be matched by most other careers.

And because of that, established copywriters and sales letter writers will charge thousands to show you what they do and what you need to know to become as good as them… apart from Steven Gregson. 

Steven Gregson has had a hugely successful career as a direct response sales letter writer and marketer. He has generated millions with his sales letters and he has compiled everything he knows into a home study course called One Letter From Retirement.

In the manual, Steven outlines his …

  • Five Rules For Writing Convincing Copy.
  • The 12 Elements Of Great Copy
  • The 18 Sure-Fire Steps To Writing A Powerful Sales Letter
  • The 5 Rules For Successful Headlines
  • And more…

The One Letter From Retirement manual also comes with 3 appendixes of sales letters and headlines which have made millions for Streetwise Publications, the company who published Steven Gregson’s manual.

If you are not sure as to how profitable writing sales letters can be, then take this onboard, John Harrison, one of the guys behind Streetwise Publications who is also a copywriter says in the preface that his most successful sales letter generated so much money that each word was worth £5,000.

Each word of that successful sales letter earned £5,000! That is insane! 

Yes, it took a few years for that sales letter to make that amount of money but going back to the average UK yearly wage for 2020 which is £29,600… it took only 6 words to generate that amount of money!

So, if you want to learn how to earn a year’s wage or more in a month or less, then check out Steven Gregson’s One Letter From Retirement here:

One Letter From Retirement By Streetwise Publications: An Honest Review

One Letter From Retirement is a home study course published by Streetwise Publications. Written by Steven Gregson, the course consists of one comprehensive yet easy to understand digital manual outlining how an everyday person can learn to write incredibly profitable sales letters for either themselves to promote their own products or for clients.

A good sales letter is the difference between a product failing badly or generating millions of pounds in sales. Both Steven Gregson and John Harrison of Streetwise Publications have generated millions by writing these simple sales letters.

“…the most successful letter I wrote…and one of the shortest at two pages of A4… pulled in over £5 Million over a 12 year period. I wrote that one way  back in 1998 – in an afternoon!

Coming right up to date, the most recent letter, which I wrote just last week, brought in over £50,000 in the first four days after being read by less than a thousand people.  I fully expect that one to bring in £200,000+ over the next few months. You see, once you have your letter written, it just keeps paying and paying and paying!” – John Harrison

Because a good sales letter is worth hundreds of thousands and millions in sales, clients will pay several thousand pounds for a good converting sales letter. Sometimes they will pay tens of thousands, and in some cases, top sales letter writers like Dan Kennedy have generated hundreds of thousands of pounds in fees writing sales letters for clients.

In fact, I am sure that Dan Kennedy has made over $1Million from royalty and payment fees for just one sales letter he wrote for one client.

These letters can often take as little as a day or two to write. Worst case scenario is that a sales letter takes you a month to write but that one sales letter earns more than you would earn for the rest of the year if not more.

In general, sales letters take only a few days to write… and the hardest part for most people to grasp is that most people can write them. 

Most people have the right skills and knowledge to write a highly profitable sales letter. 

You do not need to be an English scholar or professor.

You do not need to be able to understand classical English literature.

The best performing sales letters – the ones which make the most money – talk directly to the average everyday person. They do not use fancy convoluted language or long words… they use basic everyday conversational language.

The main objective is to connect with people and get them to understand clearly what it is that the sales letter is selling.

Simple, easy-to-write language is the best.

It is easier to understand.

And does not confuse people.

Short sentences are used often.

And who isn’t able to write a lot of short easy-to-understand sentences?

The great thing about writing sales letters is that there is a template to use and a formula to follow. Today, it is like painting by numbers except you are using words. 

Writing sales letters has been going on for over a hundred years now. The artform has been honed… and it is an artform. It has been tried and tested and the template and formula has been proven to work time and time again.

These templated and formula focused sales letters have generated millions for people over the years. They have built big business empires.

A person does not need to be a good writer, everything you need to know to become a very successful and profitable sales letter writer is learnable. You can learn it. And the best way to learn how to become a highly paid sales letter writer is to learn from someone who is already a high earning sales letter writer.

In steps Steven Gregson and Streetwise Publications with their groundbreaking One Letter From Retirement home study course. This course will teach you everything you need to become a successful sales letter writer.

In One Letter From Retirement, Steven outlines his …

  • Five Rules For Writing Convincing Copy.
  • The 12 Elements Of Great Copy
  • The 18 Sure-Fire Steps To Writing A Powerful Sales Letter
  • The 5 Rules For Successful Headlines
  • And more…

He outlines the exact formula and lays out the template which is used by all successful sales letters and sales letter writers.

Following what Steven Gregson lays out in the One Letter From Retirement home study course, you will soon be able to write your own incredibly powerful sales letter. Nothing is held back, Steven completely delivers.

After reading the manual, you will know all the same information that successful sales letter writers know. You will know everything you need to know.

I suggest that you read the manual a couple of times to commit everything to memory. There is a lot of important and powerful stuff in there.

In the preface, John Harrison of Streetwise Publications says that one of his sales letters was so successful that each individual word had an income value of £5,000.

£5,000 per word! 

That is an insane figure. Imagine sitting down one day and tapping out a sales letter on your laptop and it generating so much money that each word was worth £5,000. Hence the name of the course, One Letter From Retirement. If you wrote a letter where each word was worth £5,000, you would indeed be in a position to retire.

One sales letter can have the potential to earn enough money to retire on. I am not saying that your first letter will be that successful, but one sales letter promoting the right product can generate a lot of money.

Unlike other books on the subject of writing sales letters, One Letter From Retirement comes with three appendixes stacked high with successful sales letters and headlines used by Streetwise Publications all written by John Harrison.

sales letter in newspaper

These appendixes are incredibly useful. You can study the way they are written and get a feel for what really makes a successful sales letter. You can see for yourself how the template and formula has actually been used in real world sales letters which have generated millions in sales over the years.

These are real examples and not just some theoretical examples of what a sales letter should look like and what a good sales letter can do… these are examples which did incredibly well.

A lot of these sales letters were direct response letters, sent through the post to people on a mailing list. Direct response marketing is a very profitable business to get into, it has made millions for many people but…  sending out a mailing is incredibly expensive and there is a shelf life to a mailing.

Today, it is a very different story. Thanks to the internet, a sales letter can be online 24 hours of each day, every day of the year until you decide to pull it down. These sales letters can be found through searches by people using specific words and phrases.

What this means is that your sales letters can be added to a website which costs very little and these sales letters are like little salespeople who are working hard to make you money. A sales letter can make a sale at any time of the day. Anyone from anywhere in the world can buy a product from your sales letters.

New technology has made selling digital products so much easier today. Money can be taken automatically and products delivered without you having to do anything other than write the sales letter, add the payment button, set up the product delivery – you can pay someone else to do these other little tasks – and then sit back and allow the sales page to do its work.

Being able to write a powerful and profitable sales letter is one of the best skills to have. Master this and you will never be without money.
