Not just your office
If there’s one thing I see or rather hear regularly through my clients is that almost everybody goes about making money online completely the wrong way.
The biggest mistake we make is desperately searching for ways to make money online when we have no money and can barely put food on the table. Don’t worry if this is you, I was there too.
When I first started searching for ways to make money online, we barely survived and struggled to make ends meat and then the sharks come and steal your money.
That’s why I have such a vendetta against exposing people who are scams.
How should you go about making money online?
You should change your entire outlook.
Making money online isn’t some sort of gambling event where you push a button and hope you’re going to hit the jackpot.
It’s work. Hard work. If you’re lazy, it’s not going to work for you, sorry. There’s one method that I’ll share with you in another post, but not right now that’s kind of lazy, but you also sit in front of your computer all day and make pennies.
It’s starting your own business. It is investing in what you believe in.
It costs you thousands less than it would have to start a brick and mortar business. But do remember, blogging is not for everybody and if you do decide to start your own blog, if you’re not going to outsource some work, it can get quite hectic. And if you have to do the marketing and everything yourself, that’s tough.
You can also take a look at 5 methods of making money online that really work if you would rather want to try your hand at Freelancing. Which sometimes is better because building up your blogging business to the point where it starts to make money takes time and money.
Want to know more about Freelancing?
There’s lots of jobs you can do as a Freelancer. It depends on what your skills and interests are.
Anyway, I went a little off topic, but what I want you to realize is no matter what way of making money online you’re looking at, everything is starting your own business. There is nothing that just falls on your lap where you don’t have to do anything.
Enough blabbing, let’s take a look at the cool tech for Internet Marketers that you can invest in to grow your online business.
Want the coolest online business?
Then it’s time to upgrade your tech and to create a work set-up that you truly look forward to using and that will help you to get more done in less time.
And please, I’m not saying you have to buy these and you’ll make more money or start making money if you’re not doing so yet, these are purely to upgrade your business to be better and faster. For your own convenience and benefit.
Let’s take a look at some of the best tech and hardware you should look into as an internet marketer…
A Surface Pro (Or Similar)
The Surface Pro 4 is a computer that seems hand-built for internet marketers and that is absolutely perfect for them in many ways.
For one, Surface Pro devices are incredibly light and easy to carry around.
This means you can throw one in a bag and take it on a trip with you without it weighing you down.
It’s also ideal for working out of coffee shops. (Where you get your Free Wi-Fi)
Then you have the kickstand and removable keyboard, that means you can detach your Surface Pro when using it at home in order to watch YouTube on it while you cook.
Or how about the pen, which is perfect for signing PDF documents or sketching up designs for websites and logos?
The screen is beautiful and tall thanks to its unique aspect ratio and this is ideal for multitasking too.
A Powerful Computer
Meanwhile, it also pays to have something a bit beefier for working at home, like this powerful computer.
My recommendation is an i7 processor that can be overclocked to at least 3GHz, as well as a GPU such as one of the new GTX 10 series.
Throw in a big harddrive and 16GB of RAM too.
This will give you all the horsepower you need for multitasking and for using more demanding software like Blender.
More importantly, it will make working fast and fun and mean you can output to a 4K display, or an ultrawide monitor.
Studies show that a larger screen can boost productivity!
The Right Keyboard and Headphones
Anyone who writes often for a living should look into getting a keyboard that has mechanical switches.
This will speed up your writing, as well as giving you a more satisfactory typing experience.
Look for cherry MX blue switches for the optimum experience.
Also important is to look for the right headphones which should be noise cancelling to help fully immerse you in what you’re doing.
I’ve got a Blue Yeti microphone with Pop filter and stand, but only invest in this if you’re going to maybe sell voice overs on Fiverr (a service I buy a lot) or do podcasts for your Blog. Or something where your sound needs to be awesome.
This one is not even debatable, it’s super important.
If you’re serious about building your online business and growing it, you should know that you’re going to be working online a lot. You’re going to be downloading and uploading files. You’re going to visit websites and work with online payments.
Your internet security is crucial.
I’ve used Norton (love them), McAfee (hate them) and Kaspersky. It’s my fourth year with Kaspersky, so I really think I do love and trust them a lot.
Why All This Matters
You might think that all this is just a luxury and a waste of money but the reality is far from it.
Having more technology makes you feel more capable and allows you to create more professional end products with better end results.
You’ll end up feeling like more of a professional and you’ll look forward to working more.
You’ll be able to edit 4K video, create 3D games and generally expand your capabilities.
This is an amazing investment and once you make it, you will quickly see how this can transform your experience of working as well as the quality of your output.
If you want to accumulate, you must be willing to spend.
