Tyler Cruz is a web entrepreneur who earns his income entirely online. Tyler is the CEO of http://www.merendi.com/ and has sold domains for as much as $200,000.
Can you describe how you generate income ?
I earn money online through a wide variety of ways, but the primary way is to build high quality websites and then monetize them by selling advertisements on them. I also dabble in affiliate marketing and website flipping.
What inspired you to document your journey on TylerCruz.com ?
I used to be an active forum member at a website called Sitepoint. I had created a thread there announcing that I was going to “take the plunge” and move out of my parent’s basement onto my own for the first time and support myself exclusively by making money online. It became a very popular thread and many readers of it requested and suggested that I make my own blog to continue my internet entrepreneur journey documentation.
About how many hours per day do you spend working online ?
Not nearly as much as I should, and this is something I struggle with a lot. Complacency is your enemy when you have your own business and work from home. On average, I work around 3-4 hours a day, but will often only work for 1-2 hours a day and then sometimes go crazy and work for 10 or more hours in a day.
What is the best piece of advice you can give to those looking to start
generating an online income ?
Actually get started. Too many people procrastinate and never actually do anything to get started. The best advice I can give is to stop reading about other people making money and just get your feet wet. Don’t be scared of failure. Just START RIGHT NOW!
