How to Generate Revenue While You Peruse Massage Parlors in Thailand

Since Al Gore invented the internet in the year 2000, businesses have had to adapt to a new ecosystem. You don’t necessarily need the pretty sales person, the sparkly clean shop windows or even the act of being physically present. Yup, the whole thing can be automated so that you can generate revenue while you peruse massage parlors in Thailand.

Get your domain name (www.yourdomainname.com) from someone like GoDaddy (always search for awesome coupons first). Set it up with web hosting and you’re almost up and running (keyword: almost). Install WordPress and be sure to get our suggestions for must-have WordPress plugins (Yoast SEO is essential). 

Now to your million dollar idea…don’t have one? Then just clone another site and jack up your prices. Anything you need to make your site functional to an end user should be free. Paypal offers free integration services. Social networks can be tightly woven into your site using free add-ons or plugins. If it sounds too difficult, worry not, because you can always use cheaper labor by leveraging the communities on elance.com or odesk.com, both of which I’ve had positive experiences with.

Here is where the battle begins. After you install Google Analytics on your site, it’s a battle for search traffic. If you’re too cheap to pay for adwords (Google’s way of driving traffic to your site for a small fee), then immerse yourself in the mystery of search engine optimization (SEO). Almost everything can be done for free. Google should be a close ally.

Note: starting with SEO education might be the first step for some people. You may want to research your potential products first, and decide what to sell based off of market demand & SEO competition.

We’ve definitely glossed over some details, like creating your logo, designing your site, picking a theme. But most of that requires just an opinion, and very little technical expertise. All else fails – hire cheap labor.

It does sound too simple, and as mentioned there’s undoubtedly more work than just this. But the high level understanding of this makes sense, and it’s only a matter of time before bots not only automate our businesses, but automate our decision on what business should be created based off the demands of us humans.

Who’s in charge here, anyway?
