There is only one basic answer to that question for me, and that is to "Get Connected."
Everyone is getting connected, so you better think about comparing yourself and your business to everyone!
Since the inception of the internet our world of commerce has changed drastically and social media with all it's various forms are becoming or should I say have become the dominant form of interaction. Online tools like pod-casts, blogs, search engines, video, and audio, just to name a few have been deployed into media such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Apsense along with marketing sources such as About.me offer realistic ways to get involved and productive for yourself and your business. It is the new media, the "me media" or "you media" for marketing in this new age of business.
Connecting your business to other firms, clients, and potential customers are essential as the old rules of business won't help you much. Survival depends on connecting, creating "real" value, speaking authentically and building trust with everyone. And everyone means your customers, colleagues and ~ yes ~ even your competitors.
So let's go back to ~ How Can You Earn an Income on the Internet? ~ then just sit and think for a minute - and ask yourself:
"How are you going to build your business and get your name out there?"
Well, first you must understand that business has been forced or is being obliged to change and this, in turn, changes everything we know about business and how you are going to have to connect yourself, your brand, your products, and your services. Your game plan will be to spread the word and your message far and wide; consider it has become a global market for yourself and your business. Part of that plan is to understand your 'target market" and connect with them and then build a relationship.
We all have access to the new technology, the internet, and the new age mobile devices that are out there, and these are the tools which connect you. Using these tools in conjunction with the social media tools I mentioned previously are the channels that will work for you as you work to add value, your voice and the ability to connect with your consumers; so Engage~Inform~Educate by taking part in the social communities available. It's driven by the time you need to invest, not so much by the money that you invest.
The people that are connecting and doing so through these tools and channels are growing their personal brand and their business and are rivaling some of the biggest corporations on the planet. You have the size, the power, the audience and the influence to become the entrepreneur you desire. Connect, communicate, share and grow your business and you will find the implications are massive. You as an individual and a company owning entrepreneur have only one choice: get involved, build your awareness and combine everything and you can eclipse your competition.
