With the global economic crunch it does appears that it could really be a time to make money online with much ease. I discovered a simple idea on how to do this just this past weekend. I had the opportunity of taking part in a Workshop for practicing and intending entrepreneurs. And during this workshop I recieved an inspiration I believe will greatly enhance my online business.
Today I want to share with you an idea I got from that meeting. This idea simply dropped into my mind when one of the speakers made a statement which I believe can be an income generator in this times of global economic woes.
You know many people today are taken up with the downturn of the economy and to them nothing is really working. In fact, many online entrepreneurs have doubts about making money online right now because of the suffering economy. The only things that are very evident to them are the political and economic troubles reverberating around the world.
Confronted on all sides by this situation many are of the view that a time such as this is really not the time to make money online. They believe that not many people are spending as much online since the economy is suffering. Even those who believe that the economy is already getting back on its feet have doubts since, to them, we are still in recovery and no one really know what to expect in the near future. With this mindset there is actually a prevailing state of disbelief about making money online in these times of economic crunch.
But do you know that this is really the time to position yourself for a greater reward as a web entrepreneur? You don't believe, do you?
Ok, stay with me and let me share with you this inspiring idea. I ask that you read it carefully. Actually it's an idea that dropped on mind as I listened to one of the resource persons making his presentation. As soon as the words came out of his mouth, the light bulbs in my head came on with greater brightness that made me go wow!
So what was it that this man said that turned my entrepreneurial senses on full throttle? It's this statement...
Focus On The Trendlines Not The Headlines!
Please read it very carefully until it really sink in!
Did that make any sense to you?
Alright, let's dive in a little deeper!
Maybe you’re like me; or maybe not. But there is one thing I do all the time and that is making sure I'm always up to date about what is happening around the world today.
Now, if you do that also or maybe you do it occasionally, when you read those screaming headlines on what is happening around the world, what is it that crosses your mind? How about when you watch the news on your favorite TV station? Is it any different? I doubt!
Every paper you flip or whatever station you tune to, it’s all the same. It doesn’t matter where the news is coming from. From Africa to the Americas, from Europe to Asia or from Australia to the Antarctic, the situation is the same. The suffering economy is telling on every one. Not even once-quiet and peaceful societies are spared, any more! The slightest provocation is enough for the bitter spleen of the masses to be unleashed on the political class.
Now, think about this for a moment. How do you respond to these headlines? Probably, your response is not different from the majority of the people – pointing fingers at the politicians and calling for yet another social upheaval as we have seen lately in the middle east.
But do you know as an online entrepreneur this is actually a time you should seize with both hands to make some extra money online? Don’t believe me? Just think about the number of people losing their jobs and assets. Don't you think most of these people who are getting laid off are going to come online looking for another source of income? Now, don’t you think all these are desperate situations that is calling for a desperate solution amongst these people?
Are you getting it?
If you're still in any way not sure of what I'm driving at, let me point out to you that every savvy online marketer knows that finding desperate buyers and giving them a solution for their desperate situation is actually the secret to making it big online. May be you have heard about Desperate Buyers Only by Alexis Dawes. If you've not read it I advise that you take a look at it right now. Over the years Desperate Buyers Only has helped content publishers and info product marketers uncover how to really write and market info products so that people with problems will buy.

Now can you see why my brain lit up when this particular speaker said, focus on the trendlines and not the headlines? I realized it’s about looking deeper than the headlines. While the headlines scream at you with all the problems in the economy, you should really look deeper to see how you can profit no matter what is going on!
The headlines will only make you go crazy but the trendlines will fire you up and your creative juices will find better expression!
Now, let me caution here that this is not about scamming or selling people false dreams. It’s about providing what will help those who are desperate about keeping a roof over their heads and those who are desperate about putting food on their tables. As a web entrepreneur who knows what it takes to make money online you truly have some advantage over some of these people but you may not know it. Your years of experience online are truly an asset that you can bank on. You could put together your own experience about making money online and then sell it as an information product.
Oh did you say there is so much of that already there? Of course, that is the truth but if you think there will never be any information product on making money online again because the market is saturated then you are making a big mistake. Go learn from the internet marketers!
By the way you don’t have to create a product only in the niche of making money online. It could be an information product on how those losing their assets can stop the loss. It is actually a win win situation. And that really is what information products are all about. So whether you want to focus on those who will be coming online to make some extra income or you want to focus on any of the myriad problems facing the human race today, you could really profit with the ailing economy. Indeed, it is actually a time to take advantage of the suffering economy!
2 Simple Steps for Profiting With the Suffering Economy
I'm sure at this point you agree with me that as a web entrepreneur you can really apply this statement to your online business, right? So, if you’re on this same plane with me then let me offer you a simple and quick outline on what you should do.
1. Carry Out Your Research
The first thing you should really do is to re-focus your attention as you listen to or watch the news. Instead of just taking in what the news houses are throwing at you (that of course is how they make their own money!) direct your entrepreneurial antennae to probe deeply on what the news is really about. Ask yourself how you can make some money with this and then go online to research the topic. I tell you if you begin to do this you will soon begin to uncover some very profitable niches you’ve never thought about. Like I said earlier, if you have a system in place that is helping you make money online, you’re truly ahead of the pack! Utilize your knowledge to fatten your bank account!
2. Get Your Product into the Market
It doesn’t matter whether you're going to sell an affiliate product or your own product, if you’re going to make money online taking advantage of the suffering economy you simply need to know how to market those products to your prospects. Making money online is about selling. You need to know both the science and art of marketing online. This is what the savvy internet marketers know so much. If possible study how they are doing it. Go invest in marketing resources that will equip you to make money selling products on the net. One thing you must be sure of is that you may have the right information and even package it so well, but if you don’t know how to market it online your bank account will simply groan because of its emptiness! Marketing and selling online is both a science an art, I think that is worth repeating! You can know one but without the knowledge of the other you will remain in the same place.
I recommend that you put these two tips to good use right now and you’ll be able to take advantage of the trendlines and make money with the ailing economy. You’ll not only see much more opportunities in the suffering economy but you’d become more adept at profiting with them. And just as the Holy Scripture said, when others are saying there is a casting down you’d be saying there is a lifting up! Because my desire for you in this economy is that you’ll be lifted up I passionately ask you to go invest in this knowledge right now!
