Cash Flow Ideas

Speaking of clever ways to make serious cash flow from the net…My friend, Tom Antion, made this one page site. It’s called Wedding Toasts and brings him in $36,000 a year without him doing anything. He paid $25 for the web template. He hired someone from to write the wedding toasts, to the tune of $250. You download an ebook-so there are no shipping charges etc.. The key is to find some traffic and get in the middle of it. A good place to start is Overture. Go to “visit the resource center” and click on it. Under tools, click on “keyword selector tool”. That allows you to put in a word or phrase to get an idea of how many times a month that word is searched for. Take that information and build a one site like Tom did with wedding toasts! And you thought you had to write your own ebook! PS You do need a competent “propeller head” to get your site up but don’t let them do any fancy stuff on your site-that doesn’t make you money. What counts is good content and paying attention to judicial use of keywords to get a fabulous Google ranking. If you notice on the very top of my blog I have Personal Finance, Financial Planning etc…it’s because those are Monster key words and my Google ranking went from a 4 to a 5 is less than a month! Go find some traffic!!

    Very interesting idea! Passive income from websites is a very attractive idea. Your friend hit on one of those “of course!” type of sites. Thanks for posting about it!

    Dear Steve,

    Hi! I came across your blog while looking for noteworthy financial planning-related ones. I’m a certified financial planner who lives in sunny Malaysia. Based on what I read about you, we share two things in common: a realisation of just how important cashflow is and a respect for Tom Antion.

    Having survived the Asian Crisis of 1997-1998, when global hedge funds attacked many economies in the Asia-Pacific region, including my home Malaysia, I know firsthand the terror of seeing cashflow dry up. The existence of illiquid assets at such times seems rather pointless.

    At least that’s the way I see it. Do let me know what you think.

    I hope it’s all right with you that I mention your ‘In Cashflow We Trust’ blog to the readers of my own blog, The Cool Time and Money Blog. I’ll post that message in the next hour, so you’re welcome to read what I write to make sure it’s accurate. I’m at:

    Thank you so much for what you’ve already written and do keep up the good work. I’m bookmarking your blog so I’ll be able to return to it and continue reading your insightful posts. Thank you, again.

    Warmest regards
