3 Things You Need to Do to Turn Net Information into Cash
Although we are in the information age, very few people have been able to turn the colossal amount of free accessible information available online, into cash or business success.
a) Specialize One of the reasons for this is that there is actually too much information available online. Actually so much of it that it gets overwhelming sometimes. When you consider that there are about 40,000 new blogs being launched daily, and that is not even counting the new websites or the updates going in in both websites and blogs, it becomes clear that the information is coming at us in gigantic levels. And it grows daily.
The only way to handle this colossal information is to focus and specialize on a certain area. This the only way you will be able to effectively process the loads and loads of information and find a way of profiting from it. For example a person specializing on affiliate marketing should not touch any other area. Not even affiliate financing or any other aspect of affiliate schemes. If they do this, they will find that within a very short time they will become an expert in an area that they can easily profit from tremendously.
b) Explore It then becomes extremely easy to explore the net and the colossal information of gigantic proportions that is available, because your interest is limited or narrowed down to a specific area. Using our previous example of an area of expertise, it is then east to research and find out what top affiliate marketers on the net are earning and what kind of programs bring those high earnings. When you specialize, surfing ceases to be a tiring and confusing exercise and becomes a fascinating journey of discovery and knowledge accumulation. This is an important aspect in turning mere information into something useful and productive.
c) Test When you start practically testing the knowledge and information you are gaining online then you draw very close into turning information into something profitable and useful to you. Many times the testing will involve establishing a website that contains your information and maybe even developing a product or service based on that information. This approach has a much higher chance of success than the usual trend where people hurriedly look around for a subject and product when they have already made up their minds that they want to launch a website or blog. Take advantage of the massive information available online and start making it useful to your life today.

Three Breathing Techniques For Any Ezine Article
I subscribed myself to many ezines. I'd love to read articles in them. First thing I will do is going to article section of the ezine.

I can remember my first reaction to word "ezine". What is it? The word "ezine", (pronounced ee-zeen), is a shortened version of "electronic zine", which is a word used to describe short self-published "electronic magazines".

Why Arent You Using CGI?

5 Ways to Make More Money With Your E-zine
Have you been publishing an e-mail newsletter for at least six months but still aren't seeing real results (read: revenue) from it? Don't fret - you may just need a tune up. Here are five ways to kick your e-zine income into gear this year: TOOT YOUR OWN HORN MORE The adage goes, "If you don't blow your own horn, someone else will use it as a spittoon." If your focus is providing your readers with useful information that enriches their lives and businesses, bravo! That SHOULD be your focus. But now I want you to look out for yourself as well: Take at least 25 percent of your e-zine space and make it all about YOU. Give promos for your services, products, books, workshops, etc. List raving testimonials from clients and customers who LOVE you. Weave your business success stories into your articles and tips. Share something funny about your weekend that makes me feel closer to knowing you personally. (For more self-promotion tips, see my article at http://www.ezinequeen.com/7ways.htm) MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE Let's suppose I'm one of your subscribers. Even if I realize you offer wonderful products and services, I may need a kick in the pants to make a move. To entice me, offer me a special, l1mited-time deal. Examples: three months' of consultation for the price of two, a 20% discount on your latest book or newest service, or one of your usual offers with a few exciting bonuses thrown in. Make the offer obsolete within a few days or by next week. By putting a time limit on it, I'll be more apt to act now instead of later. Don't overlook how powerful this tactic can be. Some of my most profitable weeks have resulted from running a limited time, special pr0motion of this type in my e-zine. PACKAGE IT AT A LOWER PRICE POINT This is a super strategy for service professionals such as consultants and coaches. As your subscriber, I know the way to get the BEST service from you would be to hire you one-on-one, but perhaps I can't afford that right now. BUT consider that I may likely be interested in lower-priced options such as group coaching, teleclasses, online seminars, or a manual/e-book. This is exactly how I became an e-book author. When I started my first e-zine, my main business was writing for corporate communications. After I gained a few thousand subscribers, I realized that my readers were mostly small business owners and entrepreneurs. So I began creating products and services geared toward them. And now I profit more from those each month than from my corporate work. PROMOTE A PRODUCT/SERVICE THAT COMPLEMENTS YOURS Do your readers and clients often ask you about a certain topic that's related to - but not exactly - what you offer? Then resell a resource that you heartily recommend and would put your reputation behind. For example, while my specialty is e-zines, I get many questions about creating and selling information products online. So I continually research credible resources on this topic to share with my readers. Many of the creators of these products offer a handsome commission on any sales I refer to them. (I do this myself by paying out up to 25% commission on any referred sale. http://www.ezinequeen.com/affiliate.htm) NEVER recommend any service or product to your readers that you haven't personally tried and wouldn't back 100 percent. Otherwise you'll blow the trust that you've worked so hard to build up in your readership. SELL AD SPACE AS IT SUITS YOU E-zine ads won't make you wealthy, but they can make for some handy extra c^sh. (I call it my "margarita money.") Most e-zines offer one sponsor ad at the top and several "classified" ads at the bottom. Sponsor ads typically cost three to five times more than the classified ad, but you'll see the ranges vary greatly. Start by offering ad specials to your own readers. Then also list your e-zine in the many e-zine advertising directories on the Web. These services help match advertisers with appropriate publishers just like you. (Need help? My manual gives step-by-step instructions on how to accept and profit from ads in your e-zine.) Remember that you have every right to be selective about the type of ads you accept. While your readers know these ads don't represent YOUR business, their quality will indirectly influence their perception of you.

Search Engines Can Be The Online Writers Best Friend
It's an exciting time for online writers, with a wide array of options. With desire and well-directed effort, a good writer can end up with a variety of work. However, as we know, there is much more to the writing biz than the meat and potatoes of the actual writing. Research, record-keeping, finding markets, composing and sending queries, dealing with rejections and self-promotion all factor in, and it all takes up a great deal of time.
