You might not be fully and 100% aware of everyone you are linking to. You could even be linking to a bad-neighborhood site without realizing it. There are a few ways this can happen.
The first purchase I ever made in the field of Internet Marketing was Holly Mann’s eBook, Honest Riches. I still consider it the best investment I ever made in this field. Without this eBook I would have never gotten started in learning how to make money online and actually building up real streams of online residual income. What follows here is a review of her most recent edition – Honest Riches 3.
Holly’s eBook on how to make money online, Honest Riches, has already sold tens of thousands of copies and has changed lives all over the world, by teaching everyday people how to work from home on the Internet and earn money online.
I was able to preview a copy of the book before its official release, and it is a masterpiece.
The latest version of Honest Riches is 277 pages long. Yet, it is very fast and easy to read, giving you only the data you need, in any easily assimilable manner, and with no added yap yap or jabber.
One of the most notable qualities I noticed in Holly’s eBook, and something that sets her apart from the rest, is she does not talk to you like she thinks you already know everything. She explains every important concept and action in simple terms that anyone can understand – even the total beginner to Internet Marketing. This is one of the most impressive and notable elements of her work.

How to Make Money Online without a Website
This section covers different methods of making money online without a website. You can get started right away, even if you have no start-up cash and don’t want to wait until you have passed the first “hurdle” of researching and creating your first website.
Examples of this are: using forums to generate income, writing product reviews, writing articles and being paid per article, etc. Holly also gives good advice and resources on how to learn the needed writing skills and improve your copy writing talent.
How social networking can help you make money online, and how to choose which social networks to participate in.
A great description of what Web 2.0 is and how you can use it to boost your income potential fast.
How it works, and step-by-step instructions on how to implement it, with common-sense guidelines for successful email marketing. How to win your readers hearts by actually helping them instead of spamming them, pestering them, or just pounding them for cash.
She also includes personal recommendations for email software and programs which will save you a lot of money in the long run.
Holly gives information on the different methods of creating websites, including the best ways for beginners to start out.
She also explains website design terminology in such a way that anyone can understand; and describes the different options and possibilities for website creation.
Holly’s eBook contains the best explanation and definition of RSS that I have ever seen. I wish I had this the first time I tried to understand what RSS was! She also teaches you how to use RSS functions for your websites.
(RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication” and it is a method that webmasters can use to keep you informed automatically, whenever new content is added to their sites.)
Search Engine Optimization (or “SEO”)
SEO is the science of systems and strategies you use to get your websites higher rankings in the search engines so that you get more traffic. More traffic equals more sales, more views of your ads, and thus more money.
This section of Honest Riches is of course not small and simple. Holly gives a ton of information on how to get your website ranked high in the search engines, with new strategies and techniques that are easy to implement and which you might not have heard of before.
She covers quite a multitude of subjects and areas so I won’t try to detail it all here. It’s best that you read the eBook itself.
Press Releases, article submissions, classified ads, and how to use them.
Holly describes Pay Per Click Advertising, and how to use paid advertising such asGoogle Adwords, to get traffic to your websites. Includes information on other affordable paid advertising methods.
She also gives several alternative forms of advertising which I had not tried before but, per the information she provides, could be very lucrative.
Establishing Your Online Presence
How to become an opinion leader in your field and increase your search engine rankings at the same time.
I found some new strategies in this section, which I could use immediately and quickly to increase the rankings and traffic to my websites. I had been completely oblivious to them before. One recommendation she makes in this section carries the possibility of having one of your articles (and you link to your website) viewed up to 20,000 times within a short time period after publishing it.
How to Make Money Online by Giving Things Away for Free!
In this section of Honest Riches, Holly describes how you can earn money by giving away free reports or downloadable products to your website visitors and then following it up with a sale. She gives the exact step-by-step instructions on how to do this.
Holly also explains the basic mechanics of selling products online, and how to set up payment processing simply.
Have you thought about creating your own digital product (such as an eBook, software, etc.) and selling it? Most professional Internet Marketers agree that having and selling your own product is the best way to make money online.
In Honest Riches, Holly gives exact and detailed instructions on how to create your own eBook or similar product and how to sell it online. Includes details on proper website components and setup, software to use in creating your eBook, and how to promote your eBook for sales.
You can also create physical products. Have you ever thought of creating a T-Shirt with a logo on it, or a calender of your photographs? Holly describes how you can create your own physical products (including hardcover or paperback books, with no start-up fees) and how to design and create your own T-Shirts, mugs, bumper stickers, et al. You can add your own graphics, messages, and logos. There are no costs to create these items, as you are essentially only inputting the digital data needed so that the product can be created when someone wants to buy. In this case you get a commission of the cost.
These physical products can be sold from your own related websites or posts and thus increase your income – creatively. If you are supporting a particular cause or group, you may want to produce promotional items with logos and content that supports your message. (You know, those coffee cups that say “save the whales” on them and the T-Shirts that say “I love New York.” This stuff was around when we were kids but was far more limited than now. Now we can create our own!)

To purchase Holly’s eBook, go to Honest Holly.
I recommend you get it right away, even if the 2008 version has not arrived yet. When Honest Riches III arrives (probably very soon, if it is not already out by the time you read this) you will be notified so that you can download it for free as long as you have purchased any earlier version of Honest Riches. (Just make sure you keep your purchase information!) The current version of Honest Riches is also excellent and you can get a head start on learning Holly’s techniques.
I also don’t know if Holly will raise the price of her eBook with this new version. Honest Riches is becoming increasingly popular, and with that increase of popularity also comes an increase of cost. When I purchased it in 2006, it was $19.95.
As sales have gone up, Holly has accordingly raised the price of her eBook. But anyone who has purchased an earlier version is entitled to lifetime free updates.
If you want to have the chance for an adventure in life like you have probably never experienced before (and all from the comfort of your laptop or kitchen computer), if you like the idea of one day breaking free from your job or your boss, and working from cafes, campgrounds, or your bedroom, this is the best place I know of to start.
I can say without a doubt that if there were only one purchase I ever made, to learn how to make money online, and if there were only one investment I made so that I could start off on an online career, it would be this eBook.
