This is a shorter episode than future podcasts from The Income Highway because it will just be a little bit about what to expect from future shows.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Paul James Carey and I love the world of online business, from the actual income side to the tactical stuff such as SEO (Search Engine Optimization), knowing that changes you make to a website can have such an impact on the visitors you receive is astonishing to me. I’m starting this podcast is something I’ve been wanting to do for some time now. I like to consume content via podcasts and I also like to chat, so why not create my own podcast and best of all, I get to discuss something that I’m passionate about and get to interact with people I can help who are in a place where I once was also and know exactly what they are going through.
Along with the podcast, I’ll also be doing weekly videos on The Income Highway YouTube channel, where I give online business tips and tricks to excel over competitors. Each post will have notes attached to it also, like what you are reading right now, so I can either dive deeper into something I said on a podcast or video or to display a video or link I mentioned previously, essentially an online business blog.
Why am I starting The Income Highway podcast? What gives me the right to talk about making an income using the internet?
See the picture of the cheque? (Yes, I’ve photoshopped non-public information out of it haha). That was the very first bit of income I made online. That was over a decade ago, but I can still remember thinking to myself when I received it in the post, “Is this real? Is somebody playing a prank on me?” and I can especially remember how terrified I was when I handed it to the woman at the bank when I asked to lodge it into my account. I was expecting alarms to start ringing for trying to put fake money in my account, but to my absolute amazement, it was real! This completely blew my mind.
I spent the next decade experimenting with various different methods of creating new and exciting revenue streams, some worked, some didn’t (hey, can’t win them all, right?). So I guess you could say this podcast is 10 years in making I’ve been involved in quite a lot over the last decade including Advertising, Selling Physical and Digital Products, Dropshipping, Affiliate Marketing, Offering Services (such as Website Design or eCommerce Expansion) to name just a few.
I’ll be discussing these and more in full details of my experience with them including what worked for me and what did not, mistakes I’ve made so you can also avoid them and of course keep you in the loop with the latest industry news surrounding online business. The image below shows the sales figures I was receiving from Dropshipping on Amazon. If you want to learn more about how to make money dropshipping on Amazon, I recommend listening to episode #8 of the podcast.
I’d like to make this particular point very clear, on The Income Highway, I will not be talking about a specific secret formula that will make you rich overnight. Any guesses why? It doesn’t exist. I’ll be talking about various options that allow you to choose what method you like best (or try a few) and allow you to build a business that your passionate about, whether it’s vintage car restoration, how to cook eggs in 100 different ways or even hats for dogs, see, I literally mean anything at all.
I’m going to try to keep each podcast to about 20 minutes each in length as I believe this is most people’s commute time, or at least the attention span these days when listening to a podcast (I know not everybody is like that). This can allow you to binge on podcasts also as psychologically, most people would rather listen to ten 20 minute podcasts instead of one 3.5 hour long podcast, like how paying $97 per month over 12 months is more appealing for the majority of the public instead of paying $997 all at once, even though you save $167 that way. We’ll be discussing things like this on the show also as these tactics can help generate more sales.
I’m always here to help also, and you can reach me in various different ways, such as emailing me directly at email@example.com or by contacting me on any of my social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and even Snapchat. Make sure to use the hashtag #theincomehighway if discussing the show out in the social world as I can join in on the conversation and help you out as best I can. I’ll also be notifying you of new podcasts and video releases using those social media platforms so make sure to follow me and if you get any value from the content, give it a like and share so we can help other people in the same situation as you build and grow their own online business.
