Holly told me she started writing content in 2011. At the time, she still worked a full-time job but created content online part-time to supplement her income. Over time, she was able to double and triple her rates until she could quit her full-time job to write. These days, she makes bank as a freelance writer and teaches others to do the same via her online course, Earn More Writing.
It can also work together while paying for various different items that go together. Even McDonald’s uses the same tactic and they call it meals. Let’s say you buy a Big Mac for $4 and you want fries with it for $1.5, McDonald’s convinces you that paying $5.99 for a meal that also includes a soft drink, which will cost $1.5 makes you save some money. In reality, it has sold you one more item for 50c, which costs them a few cents.
25. Products – You can create your own product, such as an ebook or computer software. You would then use your blog as a promotion tool to get people to buy your product.

Online savings accounts usually come with substantially higher interest rates to help you grow your money faster (regular in-person banks can’t offer rates as high). Banks like CIT Bank and Discover Bank (among other top players in the industry) are great because their interest rates are often over 20 times higher than the national average. That means the money in your savings account will grow 20 times faster than the pace it’s most likely growing at now.

Also, every time you sit down, you want to make sure you grow your business in some way. The most important thing in this business is to build and maintain forward momentum. You'll be amazed at how quickly your business grows with each month that passes if you work this way. In other words, don't be someone who isn't taking action because they want to understand everything first and things to be perfect; this isn't a perfect business and the people who are successful are the ones who just keep building more websites and more links and trying more things and learn as they go (I have too many students that spend too much time analyzing and not enough time doing; they are the ones that end up with a few small “perfect” websites while other students are going crazy with 3-4 new websites each month and have 50+ new ones by the end of each year – who do you think is going to make the real money??).
For example, you have 5 courses with a price of $100 each. But, you have decided to offer them in a bundled offer for buy 5 pay 3 ($300). Most of your customers will think about spending $500 in one go, but offering them at a discounted price will make them think of the $200 they are saving, and you are getting them to buy more courses where initially they were going to get only one.
