There are so many out there that will tell you that it is so easy to make money online. You will be told that you can make thousands of dollars really fast. All that you need to do is pay your hosting package for a year, a domain and then use a “super secret” system that will give you X thousands of dollars per day. Really?
If you believe such a thing, you will end up losing much money until you finally realize the truth about making money online:
“Making Money Online Is Still A Job! You Need To Work Hard To Make A Lot Of Money!”
The truth is that we have many different methods that can be used in order to make money online, ranging from building websites and flipping them to blogging or using CPA. No matter what you choose, it has to be something that you will enjoy.
Beginners need to gather the information that separates them from the really strong marketers, the ones that make a lot of money. Notice the fact that I said “marketer”. One way or another, you will become an online marketer when you will start to earn a lot of money. You can start with freelancing on Elance or Odesk and with your personal blog but eventually it is a guarantee that you will end up having to learn marketing. Take that as a little advanced tip.
What Should You Do To Make Money Online?
Another hard truth on the way:
“You need to learn how to make money first!”
This means that you have to start reading. People do not really like to read anymore and that is a shame. No matter what you want to do in life, in order to be successful, you have to read.
“Do not buy books that teach you how to make money online!”
All the information you need is already available for free. I am talking to you as a beginner. If you are advanced, you will most likely need to buy some books or enroll in some specialized programs but when you are a beginner, you have to work really hard.
Your competition is a person that has been doing the same thing that you want to do for a minimum of one year. This means that:
“You have to dedicate at least one year to making money online!”
Never assume that you will be able to quit your day job in just a few weeks since that is just bull s@#% sold to you by someone that wants to make money off of your work.
