I don't have an internet buisiness, but I do have ten websites that cost a couple of thousand dollars a year to operate. If I was trying to make money and support myself, I would have gone bankrupt years ago.
I don't put any advertisements on my websites because I find that advertisments are irritating, and the amount of income
they would generate would be negligible. We get up to 25,000 pages downloaded per week, and I'm not planning to do anything commercial
with my sites until I have at least 100,000 pages a week downloaded. I have written four books
, and when I hit my download goal, then I will print up one book and sell it on my sites.
My son does sell his cruising DVD
on our sites, but I don't get anything out of that except the joy of seeing my son's talent and hard work paying off.
If you figure out a way to make money on the internet, let me know. I have thirty two web domains that I own, and I am on track to becoming a bazillionaire if you can reveal to me the financial secrets of the internet.
Until then, it's a lot of fun helping people get their lives together and inspiring them to live their cruising dreams. Come to think of it, that's a pretty good reward. Not all rewards are financial.
