Host of Family Feud, Steve Harvey, said it best. He said that most people make vertical money and only a few make horizontal money. What he meant by that is some people make money while they sleep, which is horizontal money and other people have to make money by standing up and going to work. America is a great nation and offers many chances for anybody to become their own boss and live a higher-quality lifestyle. In my opinion, I believe that the best way to make money while you sleep is to start your own brand from home.
There are many entrepreneurs who have joined home business opportunities and are now living the sweet life. They have put in the necessary work to lift their company off the ground and they are now financially independent, secure and free.
Here is how a billionaire can make horizontal money.
Donald Trump owns a hotel in my home state of Florida called the Trump Hotel. Donald Trump employs maids, butlers, cooks, valets and other positions to do the work for him. Because he has so many people doing his job for him, he can rest at home.
As a home business owner, you can make horizontal money as well if you know how to leverage the power of the internet to help promote your products and services. In the old days, most people had to do endless meetings with different people in order to sell what they had to offer. Now, if you have a strong social media and internet presence, you can promote at the click of a button.
Just like the maids and valets for Trump, you can leverage the power of the internet to work for you at little to no cost.
Here is how you can make horizontal money:
First you must join a home business opportunity.
They come in all shapes and sizes. One opportunity may sell diet and health products and another opportunity may sell home essential services like high-speed internet and cable. I would recommend that you go to the Better Business Bureau's website to get a non-biased review on whether the opportunity you picked is legit or not.
You must master the art of marketing. Marketing is a skill and an art form. Marketing is the heart and soul of any company. Marketing is what drives new customers through your door and is what helps you keep the ones you already have. I would recommend that you search on seobooks.com to find out the popular keywords that your market is looking for to incorporate them in your marketing campaign. In addition, I recommend that you go to any popular search engine to see the problems that your market has and how you can incorporate the solutions to their problems in your marketing campaign.
If you join the right opportunity and put in the necessary effort and time, you will make money while you sleep in no time.
