How to Become a Millionaire in a Year

Hey everyone, this is Clark, and welcome to First up, I simply do not know how to become a millionaire in a year from scratch, but how about 5 years? By the way, if you’re a multi-millionaire, then this post probably isn’t for you.

Below are the 3 BEST ways that I know of to become rich:

1) Internet marketing

2) Investment

3) Strike the lottery

As you can see, having a job is not one of them, unless you’re sitting VERY high up. Striking a lottery is not my forte. Investment is a tricky one, because to make money first you need to have quite a bit, AND you could lose it all if you don’t know what you’re doing.

So, yeah, my best recommendation is Internet marketing.


The UNTAPPED Potential of Internet Marketing

Internet marketing is the process of promoting a brand, product or service (not necessarily your own) online. To get started, you don’t need experience in selling, you don’t need your own product, and you don’t need capital besides a computer and Internet connection.

There are 3.5-plus billion people online, who are looking for solutions to their problems, and spending billions of dollars on products and services every day. If you could reach out and market to just a tiny fraction of these people, you can earn a FULL-TIME passive income, or MULTIPLE full-time passive incomes.

The industry of affiliate marketing (process of promoting other people’s products/services and earning commissions) achieved $3.4 billion sales in 2016, and that number is expected to rise to almost $5 billion in 2017.


The 4 Fundamental Steps of Internet Marketing

1) Choose an interest or niche, which is a group of people looking for the same thing. Choose a “topic” that you enjoy, so that Internet marketing will feel less like a job. Keep in mind that with more than 3.5 billion people online, even the smallest of niches can be very profitable.

2) Build a website, which will act as your online “store”. Your website is where you welcome potential customers and promote products and services to them. Nowadays, building a website is no longer something technical and complicated. Over at Wealthy Affiliate, it is something that can be done in less than a minute, and building your first 2 websites is completely free.

3) Attract potential customers, and the key to this is the creation of content – captivating, informative, accurate and opinionated content that helps your website visitors with their problems. Creating quality content frequently is also key to attracting lots of potential customers to your site.

4) Earn money, through affiliate marketing, placing “ads” on your website, etc.
