Q: Are there any legitimate, honest and transparent ways to earn $100 an hour online? What if I already have a good job that pays me well? Can I replace that income by starting a web based business, or will that be a HUGE mistake? Any of these questions sound familiar? In this article we are going to take a quick and easy look at the absolute BEST way to earn $100 an hour online, replace your current income, and do your life’s work to boot. Curious? Continue reading as we take a closer look below.First, understand THIS to be true… because it is:Most people never make a dime online. As a matter of fact, they get sucked into the never ending wormhole of the promise (and potential) of big profits… and find themselves on a recurring treadmill of gurus, gadgets and gimmicks that NEVER pan out.Eventually, they give up with their dreams destroyed, often BITTER and broke.There IS a better way.And I’m going to share it with you very quickly below.First, the GOOD news is this:According to multiple studies of the coaching industry, the AVERAGE hourly income for a life coach is about $160. (some studies show a slightly higher figure… and some as low as $105, so for skepticism sake, this article will assume only $100)Even better news?The average income for a SPECIALTY coach is substantially higher. (with business coaches earning the highest according to these same surveys, and in the neighborhood of about $300 an hour)So your first step, if you TRULY want to have success online in 2013, is to stop trying to sell silly products, programs and affiliate offers… and start selling YOU.Find out what it is that you REALLY love to do… and then create a coaching curriculum around that one thing.I don’t care if it’s credit, cooking or clairvoyance, if you can help people, and offer a service, you can make a MOUNTAIN of money doing work that you truly enjoy… without having to re-invent yourself, or the wheel to make it happen.You need 3 things to earn $100 an hour.You need content. (articles like this are perfect)You need a COMMUNITY. (people who sign up to learn more about what you do best)And you need a CURRICULUM. (or a way to codify your content into a coherent “cookbook” of ideas that offers value to those who hire you)So, people read your articles. They sign up for your community. And you follow up with them using conversational automation (like an email autoresponder, for example) share more value, deepen your connection, reinforce your rapport and relationship… and over time, convert a small percentage of your community into CLIENTS… and cash!Easy. (And honest!) And that’s really it. I call this “the strategy of straight lines”, simply because it is the easiest, most elegant and LINEAR marketing model I know of for turning strangers into subscribers, and subscribers into sales.You can do it. You should do it. And if you have PASSION and a sense of purpose for your work, and are sick of struggling, stumbling and fumbling to find what it is that makes YOU come alive… you should eliminate everything else, and start doing the ABOVE today.
