Making Cash On The Web is a serious attempt to compile useful information about making money on the internet. It is a combination of things that I have learned myself, as well as information culled from other sources. It is NOT about get rich quick schemes, or wierd marketing programs. I am not going to sell you anything.
I recently brought all of my websites together under a Limited Liability Corporation.
LLCs are a relatively recent form of business organization that combines the benefits of both a corporation and a partnership. In an LLC, the personal liability of the members is limited to what they invest, just like a corporation. On the other hand, the LLC has the tax liability of a partnership.
Another advantage of the LLC is that it is relatively easy to form and maintain. In most states, a single individual can form an LLC, but in cases of LLCs with multiple members, management can take any number of forms, as outlined in the Operating Agreement.
While forming an LLC is not as difficult or as tricky as forming a regular corporation, it still can betime consuming. Fortunately, there are a number of online services that can help you navigate the procedures.
One good online legal company is LegalZoom.
LegalZoom, founded by attorney Robert Shapiro, is the premier online legal document service center. LegalZoom provides quality legal documents and document services at a fraction of the cost of an attorney. LegalZoom even reviews documents before sent back to the purchaser. Consumers and small businesses benefit from the efficiency provided by LegalZoom, which is why LegalZoom has been recognized and applauded by Yahoo!, USAToday, Popular Science, NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, and the N.Y. Times.
In addition to handling LLC filings, LegalZoom also can file Wills, Divorces, Incorporations, Trademarks, LLCs, Prenuptial Agreements, Living Trusts, and other legal documents. Basic fees start at just $29.00.
I made my living for several years as a professional writer. Here are a few bits of advice on writing content:
1) Keep your paragraphs short. Forget the advice that your English teacher gave you about having five sentences per paragraph. Three is more than enough.
2) Keep your sentences short. You can break the rules of grammar. Really. (See? I just broke a rule right there.)
All you have to worry about is whether your writing communicates your ideas or gets in the way of them.
3) Write conversationally. When I was breaking in young reporters, they often would tell me “I know what to say, I just don’t know how to say it.”
So I’d ask them to tell me what they know And they’d explain it to me verbally in clear, concise language.
Then I’d say “Now go and write down exactly what you just told me. Exactly.”
That’s when they got it. The best writers write as though they are talking to an audience.
Remember, content is what makes people come to your site. Content will make them click on your ads. Content makes you money.
