Internet Marketers That Are Making A Ton Of Money

The stories of the rise to wealth of famous people like Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, and Oprah Winfrey are legendary. They were each able to take their lifelong passions and turn them into billion dollar fortunes. There are other entrepreneurs that have made large amounts of income through innovative business ventures as well. Just because they are not on the cover of Forbes magazine does not mean that you cannot learn a thing or two from them.

Brian Clark of CopyBlogger teaches online writers how to capture the attention of their site’s readers. Clark’s blog covers everything from driving traffic to your site to the 8 habits of highly effective bloggers. CopyBlogger is ranked one of the 50 most popular blogs and has over 137,000 RSS subscribers.

All of these examples above are designed to demonstrate that you can create your own business model for making money online. You should carve out your own specific niche that fits your passion. Don’t try to work in an area just to make some quick dough. It takes work to build your business and you will get sick of writing posts or selling a product that you care nothing about.

Recently, I came across Pat Flynn’s site at Smart Passive Income.

  2. Most aspiring online marketers today are deciding to profit on a niche that is popular regardless they like or are passionate of the topic or not. While a lot of people have earned and profited through this tactic, it is inspiring to see people who are earning on the topics they are really passionate about.
