How many different “how to make money online” websites have you been to? There are hundreds (maybe thousands) of them out there and most of them try to give you some crappy eBook in exchange for you signing up to their list. That’s another thing I don’t have on this blog: a list. Nope, no list or eBook to sign up to here. This is why:
The one thing that annoys me more than anything online is when I click on a website and some advertisement pops up trying to give me one of those free guides or eBooks. All I have to do is sign up to their damn list to get it. Personally, any time that happens I just back out of the website and go somewhere else. I don’t need their stupid eBook that they probably didn’t even write themselves. If they did write it they probably just copied the ideas from some other free eBook so I am certainly not giving them my email.
If I find those pop ups and free eBook offers terribly annoying I’m sure others do as well. And that is why DayJobNuker.com is pop up free, list free, and eBook offer free. I actually think that having those things make a website look MORE spammy. You find those things on every other site and so NOT having them makes my website look different and is hopefully a lot less annoying.
Now any Internet marketer will tell me that I’m making a BIG mistake. Start your list and cultivate a relationship with your readers is the common prevailing belief by other marketers. Give people on your list lots of useful information so you can sell to them later. That is really why they want to get you on their list: so they can sell you things (crap) in the future.
Someday I might go out and write DayJobNuker’s guide to quitting your job and making money online but that day isn’t here yet.
