    I just hired my cousin who is pretty much a noob when it comes to internet. He does know the basic as to how to email, attach files, use Google etc and knows how to use MS office.

    I was wondering what should I teach him next? I'll tell him about SEO and all the tools in a couple of weeks but for now I want to make him do something that will instantly generate some money even if its just a couple hundred bucks a month.

    I would appreciate any methods/ideas/resources - anything that YOU think could be useful, please do share :)

    Thanks.

    PS: My problem is I don't have a lot of times on my hands, that is why I'm keeping the SEO and tools bit for some other time.

    since he's good at sending emails (wow... never thought I'd say that again) teach him how to use Google Search options (inurl,insite,etc) to find sources for advertisement, guest posts, links and whatnot ... or hunt for SEO prospects & leads

    how to become a camboy, hahahhahaha

    on topic, i had the same with my father, i had a travel site i didnt use, so i gave it to him, he started to talk to all ppl we knew and now he is making a bit of money slowly but its increasing.

    its just a landing page, so no need to update the site or anything, just need to promote it.

    How about this.

    Find something he is passionate about, ie. could write for days about.

    Create a basic site for him, and let him go wild, writing articles about it, posting videos (maybe just screen camtasia vids), and tell him his job is to educate / entertain people as interested in his chosen subject as he is.

    Then monetise it however you like.

    I'd much rather invest time in teaching someone something that will last longer than one more update...

    ask him to start a ppi/ppd journey on bhw.

    people will help him there.

    first ask him to read journeys of themoneywizard and twixx.

    best= ask him to read bhw and find his niche on his own.

    Teach him Wordpress or Sitefinity - You can get the basics in a couple of days and start mass producing sites like a madman. Then teach him how to use keyword planners etc to get a niche with low competition. Then spamspamspam.

    Thank for helping me start my day off with a laugh.

    Me being a developer, I forget that some people still refer to Internet Explorer as "The Internet," and the like. haha.

    Now, onto the subject at hand: From what I understand, you do marketing yourself, right? If you spend time outsourcing your landing pages, content writing, etc., why not teach him that side of things? Then you'd be able to offer a holistic approach to anything and everything you do.
