This week, we’ll be starting off a new series of articles here on Virtual Earner, and it is about some really important steps in making money online. Those steps are making connections. You can make money by connecting people together who need each other! Funny thing is that these folks may not even realize that they need each other, until you show them!
I have thought about this for years, but it was never clear to me until last week. I read an article by Seth Godin about how to make money on the Internet, and it popped in my head. Seth was exactly right when he explained how by connecting people you can make money over the Internet.
I have done this myself many times. Through my various websites, in many ways what publishing on the web is all about is connecting people. For this website, you are connecting people with information. People who want to know how to make money online get connected with information about how to do it. I have other sites where I make lots of different types of connections. For example on my LiP site, I have a number of ways to make connections. I connect people who are looking for a house for rent in the Philippines with people here who are in the Real Estate business. I make some money through making that conection. I connect people who want to move to the Philippines with moving companies who can help them move their goods here. I make a little money from that. I connect people who want to own some beach land with my wife, who helps them buy such property, and we make money from that connection. I connect people who are coming to visit Davao with myself, and we meet personally. Someday down the road they often need something that will result in some income for me.
So, as you can see, there are lots of different ways to make money by connecting people. Hang around for the next few articles, and let’s explore it!
