Lately i’ve been hearing the web 2.0 world repeat “They just don’t get it” when refering to the rest of the Internet community. What I find amusing is its clear that the web 2.0 world just doesn’t get it.
Many others are making big money online, here is a Google Adsense Cheque for $132,994.97. I personally know of 3 other people doing similar amounts/month with Adsense. I’ve also taught several people/friends ( I spent 1 hour) how to do PPC/Affiliate marketing and one of them is netting close to 100k/month now and the others in the 10’s of thousands a month. The world has really changed in the last year and many of these people have built up huge nest eggs and will branch out and take over more industries. I may be the most visible example of a one person site, but I can tell you there are a lot more people out there doing the same thing.
What we are seeing today is the beginning of programmers/developers being empowered. Many of these programmers have spent the last few years mastering the art of making money. With all that skill and knowledge they have gained they are now going out and trying to take over any market where traction is easy and ad dollars come easy. We are in for a few years of seeing small compact companies replace companies that have more then a handful of employees.
Someone is going to come along and do to the jobs industry what I’m doing to the dating industry. Which is to say they are going to turn a billion dollar industry into a 50 million dollar a year industry.
So what are you waiting for? Anything mass market will make money online. How about a gardening site?, Cooking site?, Site on knitting ? , Maybe a greeting cards site that is even remotely user friendly? There are so many industries out there just waiting to be taken over.
