For those of you that don’t know, I’m currently in the process of writing a book. It’ll be out by September, and be totally free. You can signup to the email list here, which gives you exclusiveÂ content previews and access to it before anyone else as soon as it comes out.
As I’m releasing this book, I’m also going to be doing a series of posts based on it, and to compliment the over-all release of the book itself. This is the first post, in what is hopefully, many to come over the next few weeks.
What is “POI”?
Well, as you may of realized from the title, it stands for points of income. It’s a term that I recently created, and that I’m hoping to keep expanding upon over the next few months.
It’s kind of like mixing up where you’re getting traffic from – Why on your website you shouldn’t JUST be doing SEO, or JUST be doing social etc.. You want as many different sources of traffic as possible, if possible all of which compliment each other. This is the same with POI. You want as many different sources of income, as physically possible. This’ll bring stability across multiple areas.
Though having multiple POIs requires you to have multiple skillsets, as well as a mind that lets you easily swap from one project to another.. It allows you to create a real empire that can literally only be stopped with the downfall of the internet itself. Which, is VERY unlikely, to ever happen *cough* Unless the NSA do there thing *cough*
My Personal POI Breakdown
I thought I’d give you an insight into my own, personal points of income, to give you a bit of an idea as to where you can get started.

9 different POIs, and that’s just the ones that I can think of, off the top of my head.
Internet Income Can Drop At Any Time
This is something you need to be prepared for, and why I’ve made such a point of not focusing on just one income point, try and get as many as possible – Especially when you’re working online, fulltime.
Your income can take a hit at any moment, from an affiliate network closing down to your site being hacked, to your PayPal being limited.. Having different sources of income is something that, as an online marketer.. Isn’t just a need, it’s a must.
Thanks For Reading –
I hope you enjoyed my post, it was a short one but as I was getting a lot of emails from people who’ve been hit by having their only site tank or an affiliate network shutting down, I wanted to get it out.

Even if you just run a single blog or site, don’t forget that your site could be hacked, DDoS’d or even just your host could f*ck up or even go out of business at any time. Back-ups and multiple POIs are seriously vital.
