Amazon Exclusive: Q&A with Author Joel Comm
What is your experience with running online businesses?
I built my first website in 1995. WorldVillage.com was one of the first 25,000 sites in the world! Over the years, I have built dozens of sites, many of which I still own to this day. From editorial to advertising and marketing to social media, I’ve done it all.
Who is the audience for this book?
With the current state of our economy, there are millions of people looking for ways to supplement their income. While many people tout possibilities for making thousands or millions of dollars online, I believe many would be thrilled to have an extra $1000 or so each month. KaChing presents the Internet business opportunity in a way that is both fresh and attainable to those who seek to take control of their financial situation and future.
What is the most important thing you would tell someone looking to start an online business?
Don’t go looking for the next “hot” trend. Instead, figure out how your own personal passions, knowledge and skills can be leveraged to create an online business. Many make the mistake of looking outwards for success when the most reliable barometer really comes from within.
What are the most common mistakes you see people make when running an online business?
They try to do too much on their own. The key is to align yourself with others whose talents and gifts complement yours. I can’t design or code my way out of a paper bag, so I don’t even try. Instead, I partner with or outsource to others who are able to accomplish the tasks far better than I could ever hope to. That frees me up to focus on doing what I do best. This will be different for each person.
How did you come up with the title KaChing?
Everyone can relate to the ringing cash register sound of a sale being made. Once you understand how to leverage your own interests to build an online business, you can begin to envision the reality of generating a substantial income on the Internet. It’s a pleasing sound that makes people smile. And when you get to push that KaChing Button for the first time, signifying your first dollar online, it is very empowering.
