If you are considering looking for a way to make money running an online business, the question that concerns you most is...
Make Money Online - Is it Really Possible?
A few years ago, I had the same question in my mind...
I have read countless stories of people making millions of dollars online but never really had the experience of running a web based business before.
I hear people say they've made a fortune selling eBooks, webinars, or online courses.
I've also heard how easy it is to make money this way, it's actually very easy - anyone can do it.
Being a born skeptic, I wasn't completely convinced by what I had read or heard, so I decided to dig a little deeper and see if this was really an idea. viable business or not. Can the average person on the street take advantage of this and really have a chance to make money online?
After all, I knew that if I did this, I would take a big risk, investing a lot of time and money into it.
So I started digging and found a few names that kept popping up, names like Robert Kiyosaki, Mark Anastasi, Derek Halpern and Andrew Reynolds and so on.
These people are making millions of dollars from internet businesses they have created with very little knowledge or investment and for a certain price they will teach you how they do it.
Now, while these people are at the top of the food chain and make unimaginable amounts of money, when I go through the testimonials on their websites and investigate the people they taught, I see many have learned from Mr. your little luck.
In addition, further investigation has shown that there are actually millions of people everywhere in the world who are making money online, earning $1000 a month or more for their web based businesses. themselves.
So I guess the short answer to the question is YES!
We now know that it is possible to make money online, but what if you don't know what you are doing when it comes to computers or the internet. These people must be all geeks, right?
Oh surprisingly no, not at all...
Although some people who make money this way have a good knowledge of computers, most have very little experience in this aspect before they start and some have not yet, they simply is to delegate these tasks to others and then do it for them.
Let's see one of the things I learned looking into this is that to earn a pretty steady income from your own online business you really don't need any computer experience or skills. Any computer to be successful, it just takes time, determination and willingness to learn the basic skills needed to make it work.
This does not mean that if you have all of the above you will be successful, the fact is that for every successful person thousands of people fall by the wayside.
People who start with a lot of optimism and determination can quickly become frustrated with the amount of work you have to put in at the start to make small breakthroughs.
Why did they give up?
What makes them give up on their dreams?
I find that there are a number of reasons why all but the most motivated individuals give up, but the majority give up for one of three main reasons...
Money When strangers decide to venture into Internet marketing, they seem to think that since everything is online, there will be little or no costs involved.
This is of course false. Even if you mostly work online, often from your spare bedroom, it's still a business, and no business can run without operating expenses.
Assuming they already have a computer, the costs will still go up... , Domains, web hosting, advertising, build your client list, products to sell (if you don't develop your own) to name a few things they will encounter at first. .
Some of these can be done for free or "cheap", of course, but this often comes at the expense of the time it takes before they have a regular income, and some people don't have one. there is simply no patience to wait.
This brings us to the second reason...
The reason many of us decide to try internet marketing is because we are captivated by stories of individuals making thousands of dollars within the first two months. when starting a business.
While this can and does happen, it's the exception rather than the rule, when I consider how long it takes for some of the most famous names to make money, I was amazed with what I found.
Chris Farrell (Online Millionaire) is one of the people who started seeing the fastest returns in just six months.
Derek Halpern (online millionaire) built his business for 12 months before deciding to sell the product.
Steven Essa (Online Millionaire) took eight months to start seeing returns.
The world of internet marketing is filled with successful people who have spent a lot of time trying before seeing a return on their investment.
Moral of the story?
Don't give up your day job right away, but don't give up on your dream just because it's taking longer than expected.
Many Internet marketers have the illusion that they can succeed if they only work a few hours a day...
While this may be true for established internet marketers, it is certainly not true for beginners, in fact you should be prepared to spend the (long) hours required to set everything up.
If you're working full-time, this means giving up evenings and weekends, potentially sacrificing time with family and friends, and missing out on the fun and hobby (at least for a while).
Once you have everything in place, you will face more hours trying to build your client list, update your website(s), blogging, product marketing, product development new, etc., etc. et cetera .
Believe me when I say that you will need a lot of time and effort before you can reap the fruits of your labor.
Earning comfortable income online can be done. However, it's not for everyone.
To do this, you need a certain determination and strong belief in what you are doing...
You will need the support of the people closest to you and the right mindset to overcome the challenges you will face.
As you consider what is involved and consider the sacrifices you will have to make along the way, as well as all the problems and frustrations of seeking the right help, advice and information, If that's the case, it's not hard to see why so many people give up on their dreams and go back to what they were doing before this crazy idea.
That said, if you go there with your eyes wide open and aware of the obstacles you will have to overcome along the way and if you understand that this is a marathon, not a sprint, then Your chances of success in making money online will be greatly improved.
