Still Looking For Something Steady

I may have finally found the right business for myself. It is not a get rich quick scheme and it is not some lame job that I have no care for. I am talking about worm farming. I have started rearing worms. I am starting slow on this one. I am mainly looking for a population of worms that can supply my garden's nutritional needs. I have a long way to go for that part alone.

I have been vermicomposting for about 3 or 4 years now but I am finally getting serious about it. I have been reading articles about how others are making money with their worms and a few of their ideas seem feasible for me. I am going to use this post as a sort of brainstorming and streaming thoughts about the different ways people use worms to make them money and go through some of the things I can do right now to start generating some income.

The ways worms are used is as a food source for other animals like birds, reptiles or fish, as bait, as a organic waste disposal  system, and as a source of worm castings. I am using them right now as a waste disposal and as a gardening amendment. I have a large source that taking out a dozen or so here and there, to go fishing, is not going to be damaging to my worm herd. I also just ordered 2000 worms that arrived in the mail about 4 or 5 days ago. I don't know how fast they are going to start producing a significant supply of castings but I suspect that a healthy diet consisting of some fresh or not yet fully composted organic material should help grow my population rapidly. The larger population should also help give me more castings.

Since I want to make money with worms I need to decide on a method and focus on building a steady cashflow. Then I can start focusing on other things. First thing That makes sense to me is to grow my population large enough to have castings to keep my garden beds fed. Actually, I could sell worms that I get from a wholesaler, enough to get another couple thousand worms for myself and a few others. The idea is to get enough worms sold to allow me to make a large bulk purchase and sell all the worms except a small portion I keep for myself which would be paid for through the profit margin I get from buying bulk.

Another idea I read about was dropshipping worms. I may be able to do that but it seems like a lot of work to set up a website and promote it against the already established sites. Maybe there is another less expensive/ time consuming way to advertise worms for sale, but I don't have a good idea for that just yet. I guess I could start using free ad sites and see what kind of results I get. I need a plan to get the worms sold before I make a large purchase. There are other plans I have for selling worms to specialty gardening shops. There are more and more folks getting into organic gardening these days and worm kits with worms may sell well at a garden shop. Maybe I'll open a specialty compost shop. The Dirty Worm, gets the job done!

There are tons of possibilities. I will just keep on growing the herd while I continue to work on a good marketing plan that doesn't require me to spend money. That is going to require me to spend what I got, time! Now it's time to go over to The Worm Farm Blog and do some more work there.

One more thing, I actually enjoy the process of growing, or shall I say "farming", my worms. I think about them all day and I talk about them to people who don't even care about them. I check on them over and over all day long too. This is a hobby that I will enjoy profiting from.

Still Trying To Crack The Code

I was watching the local news yesterday and an author was on there promoting his new book, "Stickability". It seems like I may somewhat have it. I have made a few dollars online. I can't seem to find anything that has the ability to make me a steady income. I have found, in my search for the cheapest, easiest way to make money online and it seems like it is not easy nor is it cheap.

I know that those are general terms, easy and cheap, but what I am trying to say is that you either have to spend a ton of time doing everything yourself or spend a ton paying others to do it for you. Back to the stickability factor and me. My ability to continue searching for that cheap, easy ride has led me to the realization that I am heading down the wrong path. I guess I was expecting to buy a $50 program that was going to magically make me rich. I am a sucker for the hype of the easy button. It is going to have to be me putting to use some of the real substance that I have found to work.

I need to take some time to design a website, do some keyword research, do some product research and then put it all together to generate a steady flow of cash. There are countless articles that try and sell you some product but they usually give out free information ebooks if you join their email list. The books usually end up being a little bit about how to do something that used to make you money or they try to tell you why you need to buy the product or service that they are promoting.

When you finally break down and pay for the ebook that is supposed to be the cure all for any type of problem that you are having you realize that they are just telling you the same info as the sales page and the free ebook and you are being sold a new problem that you didn't know you had. It feels like an endless circle of overpromises and underdeliveries. There are some good sites and products out there but most of them are too expensive for the jobless poor folks that they market to.

There are some things that many of the free ebooks and software programs share and seem to work, and that is link building and quality content. Both of which are not easy for me or cheap to pay someone else to do. I had a program that would help me with the link building and it cost way more than it earned. I did get some good rankings on a few keywords. I was lazy and I didn't work hard enough on getting quality content for my sites or article submissions so my rankings slid fast once Google changed how it ranks everything. All of my work gone. I took some time off, canceled all of my software subscriptions, and stayed away for awhile. Now I am looking into coming back.

I must find some subject that I am interested in and can write plenty about. Then I need to start writing. Next I must build a link network and submit articles. I have the time to do this and I'd like it to make me some cash. I will use blogger and other free social media sites to put up pages about my niche. It is a little discouraging when you look into things that interest you and there are a total of 500 searches for all related keywords, and they all have high competition and big authority websites already ranking up and down the first page in the search.

I will start with something I already own, like baseball cards, or gardening supplies. I should be able to find some products that I know about and can write about that others will buy. Now I need to find some way to structure all of this into a campaign, for free. I will research some keyword ideas with google adwords keyword planner. Back to the drawing board!

Can You Really Get Private Money Loans?

Can an ordinary person like me get a loan from a stranger to buy real estate? If I could how would I do it? What should I expect to pay for the money and what do I need to do to convince someone that I am the real deal?

These are some of the questions I have and I have no answers for just yet. I guess I'll just have to go out and find some answers. There are more questions too, like who has the money to lend, what kind of deals are they lending on? Can I borrow money at one rate and lend it out at a higher rate? Do I need a license to do these types of loans? Is it a good idea to start a business to do these transactions?

I have been doing a little research and I have found tons of optimized pages giving out info but I haven't seen any real authority sites or people who have any real info to share. It would be nice to have a real forum where you could discuss and share experiences with getting private money and maybe a portal where people could easily find each other when in need of money or in need of a secure and profitable parking space for cash.

I do have a website that I could use to put some discussion topics like this on. It is a local site though. It could be specific for the Las Vegas area. It will discuss some of these problems I am facing and see if anyone out there that is having success is wiling to share with the rest of us.

SEONuke Seems To Be Working

Well, since my last post I have sold a website. It didn't even cover costs. I sold it for $25. It cost me $19.99 to list it on Flippa and a $5 success fee. I also paid around $10 for the site a year ago. I did make some adsense revenue from it. I should have kept it. It was my best earner. I have learned from this experience.

I have been working with a program called SEONuke lately. It is a powerful tool but I don't exactly understand it. Sometimes my sites go straight to the top of the search engines and sometimes they don't even show up. I recently signed up to a program that shows you how to use SEONuke properly. I haven't learned too much from them yet but they do expect a delay in results.

What I mean is it takes time to produce results. I have been working on their suggestions for about one week now and I have seen my sites move up one slot. I am still on page two so I can't say if it is really working yet. I just re-invested in NicheRevolution and I am going to try and use it along with SEONuke and see if I can start generating a healthy Adsense check every month.

I made less than 50 cents per day this month. I am spending way more than that in overhead right now. I must quickly ramp up my income or I am going to go broke! If I don't see a significant change within the next three months then I am going to be forced to shut down and try again.

New Plan, Again But Having Positive Results This Time

It has been quite some time since I've updated this blog. I just started working on domain flipping. What I do is buy domains that are cheap, like new ones for around $10 to register. I am building them up by putting a relevant article on the site and then run SENuke on it to get it to the front page of google. The most recent site I made today I haven't even put any ads on it yet. I am experimenting with this domain to see if it gets ranked any faster if it has no advertising on it yet.

I found the domain by doing a search for a keyword in google keyword tool. Then I sorted the results by global search volume with the most serached on top. I then took the top 50 an pasted them in a spreadsheet and copied just the keywords in a list that I could copy onto Namecheap's bulk domain research tool.

I picked a domain name that was an exact match of a phrase that generates more than 27,000 searches per month. It also had an adwords CPC greater than $4. I should be able to rank because I have an exact match of a keyword phrase. We'll see. Once I get it earniong one dollar per day on average for 30 days I will sell it.

I also have other domains that I should probably sell right away for a quick cash injection. But I don't want to part with some of my sites that I've worked on for so long. I guess it will be nice to start fresh again. I can get good at finding a domain, building a sit for it and then selling it. I will list the details as they unfold.

Finally, A Little Success To Write About

I have been working for quite some time to get ranked for a keyword that would actually get me some traffic. I am not getting much but I am making a few bucks a month from the traffic I have been getting.The point is that I am finally progressing. I have been optimizing my webpages for certain Adsense keywords and getting ranked for them.

I have been using a program called SENuke to get my sites ranked. As I learn the software and as I learn from past mistakes I am making real progress. I have 3 keyword phrases that I am on page 1 in Google for. I just found a product on Clickbank that has some KW's that should be easy to rank for. I haven't begun my SENuke campaign yet but I will be soon. My goal with that is to get a couple of sales in the next 30 days.

At the beginning of this month I set the goal to average 25 cents per day. I accomplished it. Now that I have had some success I have upped this months goal to $5 per day. I may be getting a little cocky but I think it is doable, especially if I can increase my traffic.

That's all for today.
