About Target 5000
Target 5000 is about my goal to make money online and earn £5,000 per month from my online activity.
I'm starting from scratch, with no real experience of generating income from online activity. I have designed, built and maintained many websites and online platforms for companies across the UK in my "day job" and these sites usually get lots of traffic. The sites can be fairly complex in the features and functionality that I integrate, and they have to be usable on virtually any device from a small phone to a huge PC.
The big difference with those sites though is that they are built for the employees of those companies to use, they don't have to have any SEO, they don't need to make money online because they are for internal audiences only.
Make Money Online
In order to earn from the internet I'm going to need to develop an online strategy that helps me promote the sites and/or products that I produce. This site is all about me leaning as I go. I'll keep a record of what works and what doesn't, the mistakes I make along the way (because there will be some) and the successes that I have.
The main aim for this site is to help you learn from my experiences, far to many sites I read now are all about what you should do and written by those who are doing well. They don't cover off the very basics, and I think that there are others out there who like me need to start from scratch and learn everything that's needed to make money online.
I'll add regular updates on what I've been doing and you can read those here I'll also be adding some articles on specific projects and ideas that I have as well as adding some general tips and "productivity hacks".
I'll link to the places that have resources I find useful, and I'll always be available for your web design and development requirements via my Added Zen enterprise.
I'm not going to tell you too much, mainly because as I write this I'm still working in my "day job" and I wouldn't want them to find out about this until I'm ready to make earning money online my full time job.
What I can tell you is I'm a father of two with a wife that supports me all the way. I don't live a fancy lifestyle and don't want to be the next Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates. I want to earn enough to allow me to make earning online my full time job with enough income to support my family in everything we like to do. I want a few holidays each year, but to Butlins and Disney Land Paris, not Dubai and the Caribbean. I've set my goal to earn £5,000 a month based on the fact that it's a nice round number, I have a level of income my family needs but that's nowhere near £5K a month. I'm setting a target that I know will be tough, because I'd rather aim high and fall a little short than aim low and hit my target but still not be able to do what I want to do.
I hope you enjoy my journey, if you learn from it or find it useful in any way feel free to let me know. Please share what works well for you with me, with your friends and with the world wide web in general.
