Percy Bysshe Shelley was an English poet who lived in the dawn of the 1800s, and is regarded by some as one of the finest and most influential poets of the period. Probably his most well-known work is the poem Ozymandias.
I’m sure we’ve all heard that quote “when life closes a door, it opens a window”. It’s such an old and often quoted (and misquoted) phrase that I cannot even find the original author of this bit of wisdom.
Sometimes when you’re having more fun than a barrel of monkeys writing your latest blogpost, you wind up using too many cliché’s.
I was on the Warrior Forum the other day, looking at a thread started by someone who needed advice.
It seems they wanted to know how to make their first $1,000 online.
Good question, right? A lot of people want to know that, and there are plenty of marketers out there willing to give advice on how to do it – marketers who have already DONE it, by the way.
If you already have a blog, then you might want to read this just to see if you’re getting the full benefit from your blog. Or to find out if your blog… um… sucks.
Because frankly, most blogs do.
Sprout Social’s report uses data from over 25,000 customer interactions in its social media software and compiles the findings into generic breakdowns by platform.
You’ve seen pop ups, and you might even be using them in your business.

But it is a great way to break into online marketing and start making money money, even if you have no list, no history online and no one knows you.
It’s not a new method by any means. It’s not glamorous or sophisticated. But it is a proven money maker.
This is huge, yet few marketers even think about it until they’re months into their business and wondering why they’re not making the big money.
Yet it’s pretty darn obvious to anyone else on the outside looking in at the business.
