Welcome! My name is Jude Banks. I’ve been involved with marketing online for more than 10 years and enjoy the freedom of being my own boss and setting my own hours.
To learn a little more about me, read my profile.
The purpose of this website is to share how to use the internet as a tool to create an income-producing website. Why not use your knowledge and interests to help others searching for solutions?
We’ve all heard that one of the keys to success is to take action. That’s true. “Doing” is important. But I believe that long lasting success requires taking inspired action. I explain later in this post what I mean by “inspired action”.
Learning how to make a living online takes time and effort. The right kind of training and support will save countless hours of wasted time and frustration. It is a cliche to say that knowledge is power.
I like to think of knowledge as the fuel that drives us to take action to get the results we desire.
Whatever your background, age or experience, I hope that the marketing information and affiliate tips and insights throughout this site will help you to achieve your goals and dreams.
If you have always wanted to create your own website, even just to share your talents and passions with the world, my work here is to point you in the right direction to get started.
To generate income online the next 2 steps will help you to set a strong foundation going forward.
The first step is to decide your niche. In marketing terms, a niche is a common interest that is shared by a group of people within the same marketplace. Think about your interests, hobbies, and passions because you can create income based on that.
For example some of my interests are: internet marketing, writing, nutrition, body-mind connection, lifestyle, politics and current affairs. I can drill these down to be more targeted to a particular audience. For example, “writing” is too broad. However, “writing children’s books” will attract website visitors who are interested in that specific topic.
The second step will be to create a website based on your chosen niche. I’ll show you how – keep reading.
A Business Website For Long Term Success
It is possible to make extra money via the internet without having your own website. However, the chances for success increase considerably when you take the extra step of buying your own domain name (around $14 yearly). The website becomes your piece of cyber real estate, where you control and scale of your business.
These days you don’t need to be a web designer to get a functional website up and running as long as you have access to proper training and constructive feedback, help and support.
If you have never done this, I made a video on how to set up the basic foundation of a new website in less than a minute.
Watch over my shoulder in this short video as I create a website. All that remains is to add some great content.
The site doesn’t have to be beautiful. I have a friend whose first website looked awful, but that didn’t stop him from making a lot of money with it – because he offered something valuable that people wanted.
Making a decision and taking action are keys to success. The most effective action is ‘inspired’ action, which means wild horses cannot stop you. This does not mean you should wait for inspiration before doing anything. Make decisions, take action and inspiration will follow.
Making mistakes is part of the learning journey. I won’t pretend it’s always smooth sailing. Sometimes it might feel like pushing an elephant uphill. The challenge is there to teach you to grow. Be open to the learning experience, continue to improve and you will reach the point of ‘inspired’ action.
When taking inspired action, you will know it, because you will be in the flow and the ‘doing’ will feel easy and natural and you will think, “it’s not so hard after all”.
