So you have this idea to make more money . Why not make it on-line? You have read and listen to the experts saying anyone can make money on-line? Making money on the Internet is easy they claim. But what are the facts? The facts are different to the claims, and you need to be aware of the realities of the challenge.
Making money from home by just plugging into the Internet and letting it all happen is a lot of fiction. Easy money is not easy money at all. Like making money anywhere in life there is an art, a method and there is knowledge. It is not just an automated process you can tap into without due knowledge. There is an important issue called Mindset -How you choose to think of what you can accomplish. Do you truly believe you can be successful on-line, or do you have some secret hidden doubts? Do you have the persistence to keep going when things just do not quite work out the way you had hoped for – or do you just tend to give up when the going gets tough?
Do you have a library of motivational books like “Think and Grow Rich”? Have you studied the methods of successful people and tried emulating their methods? Research has shown successful people have a large library of books; less successful people have a large TV. People trying to make money on the Internet fall into two main categories-Opportunity seekers and Dedicated hopefuls. Opportunity seekers flit from one concept (opportunity) to another. They are looking to make quick money ; almost anything will do as long as it is making money quickly. They lack the persistence to stay the course, and if the results are not forthcoming will try something else.
If you are in this category you will rarely make the money on line that you have dreams about. Are you a Dedicated Hopeful? Are you willing to put in the work to learn the methods to be successful online? Do you have the persistence to be up late at night or early morning to learn something new and put it into practice? Are you open to learning new techniques to be a successful Internet Marketer? If you can answer YES to these questions opportunities exist for you….. but you need to be brutally aware not even the most dedicated hopeful can be guaranteed of success.
How do you succeed on-line? What is the key to success? Do you know how the Internet works? What do you know about Search Engines etc? There are a myriad of things you need to understand if you are to be successful online – but you do not need to know them all at once. If you are a newcomer you need to go through a learning process – but where do you get the information? There are people on line who specialize in teaching these topics, but they are normally expensive. Often they promise much but do not always deliver.
Sometimes they do not reveal everything you need to know. You will spend lots of dollars downloading information from a variety of sources and you will land up with what is known as “Information Overload”. The tragedy of this is it leads to a paralysis of taking any meaningful action. This is where a lot of newcomers just give up. To be successful on line you must acquire the knowledge of how the Internet works. You must get this knowledge in a format you can understand, and if you do not understand it you can repeat that specific topic until it does make sense.
You need all pieces of the jigsaw in place before you can see the overall big picture. Everything must fall into understanding so that you are totally aware of how everything works – how it all fits together. Then and only then will you be in a position to take the next step to making money on line. The question of how to make money on the internet then revolves around determining what “niche” you want to be in – hopefully the topic on which you have some knowledge, and how to drive traffic to your website business. You will also need to learn the lesson of how to build a list of people interested in your topic of interest. You will need to learn the lesson of “giving in order to receive”.
