How to make Money on your Computer

Let's be honest; we have all at least thought about making money from our computers.

 

Although, for a lot of people it may be more along the lines of how to make money on a laptop or Mac.  For our purposes here we will stick with “How to make money on your computer.”

 

 

I don't know about you guys, but I'm a search junky.  If I get an idea, I head straight to the search engines to check out what's already out there.  In part, because I want to see how my thinking and ideas align with everyone else, (you know, for “comparative analysis;)  The other side of the equation is to see if there is an untapped opportunity.

 

As of this post, there were just under 29 million search results for how to make money on your computer.  Just a drop in the bucket right?  

 

Just as I've written before there are a TON of ways to make money online.  Computers, in whatever form they may come in are very important but, maybe not as important as they were a few years ago.  Sounds crazy right?  As I'm sure many of you already guessed, it's because mobile internet has freaking exploded.  More and more people are getting online with smartphones than ever before.

 

Let's consider this, the number of Americans with smartphones is hovering around 80% as of 2016.  That's up from just 35% in 2011.

 

That means there is a HUGE opportunity for making money with your computer.  The majority of Americans are carrying a small but powerful Computer in their pocket at all times.  That means there is a HUGE market for almost anything at any time.

 

When is the last time read a billboard?  When was the last time you actually watched a commercial?  How about a radio ad?

 

That's what I thought.  Now, when did you last check ANY notification on your smartphone?  While reading this maybe? uh huh.  Especially now with “push notifications” for almost every app out there, you are being marketed to every second of every day.

 

If you are being marketed to every second of the day, that is 86400 times per day.  Ok, I get it, you are skeptical, you are probably googling it right now and wondering why I didn't take sleep into account.

 

I admit it, I was exaggerating a little.  The number of times you see an ad, according to Experts, puts the average advertisements anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 per day.  This means you are seeing someone else's marketing strategy every 6-12 seconds of every day!  (That number includes subtracting 28800 seconds for 8 hours of sleep) Yeah, that's a lot.

So how can you take advantage of the best tool for marketing ever created?

 

Here are some ideas

But… what if you don't know how to do any of these things you say?  Check out how to do it all with me over at Wealthy Affiliate.

Until next time and post!

      Kien,

      Hey, Thanks for stopping by. Mobile is just going off. I just listened to a report that talked about the percentage of people 18-30 who use mobile, and it was eye opening.

      There are so many opportunities for ANYONE who wants to start their own little something online.

      You heard right. Wealthy Affiliate has been huge in helping me get off the ground (finally). They are step by step and show you how to actually (start a website) and use all the tools to be successful.

      Take care!

      Moon,

      I still remember the early days of mobile internet. It was pretty horrible. I used to work in various capacities in the cell industry and we have come a very long way in only a decade. Just imagine in another ten years!

      All the best,
