How many times did you land on sites that told you to buy a product and promised you will become a millionaire by working just half an hour every day?
Chances are the answer is somewhere over 100. With me it is surely over 500. Luckily, I only lost around $200 buying fake stuff or being scammed but many lost a whole lot more than that.
If you are told that you can make thousands by working just 30 minutes per day, someone tries to scam you. Making money online is similar to making money in the real world. You need to put in those 8 hours per day, usually as a minimum.
What many do not understand is that the successful online marketers always work a lot more than they would like you to believe. They want you to believe that you can make money in just 30 minutes every single day because that makes it easier for them to sell you a book or to convince you to buy something through an affiliate link.
The 30 Minutes Scam Is Not Just About Making Money Online
Everything that you do on the internet takes time. You cannot work on your sites for just half an hour daily. You cannot take care of your social media pages by spending just 30 minutes every single day.
Nothing is done with just 30 minutes per day!
How Are People Tricked?
You reach a site that looks great, with really good text, some testimonials from people that you have no way of contacting (most of them do not even exist) and you are told that you have to buy something. Sometimes you buy a book and in other cases you buy training. You can be sure that after you buy something, you will be told that you have to buy other things or invest more money.
Internet “GURUS” invest a lot of money in their campaigns. They then make screenshots and show you how they succeeded. The fact that they invested a lot is never mentioned.
In order to make a lot of money, you have to invest a lot of money!
It is easy to trick people because of the fact that we naturally want to make a lot of money without doing much for that cash. Humans are lazy. Animals work hard for their meals.
We tend to want to buy our meals from a restaurant just to not cook. Well, we need money for that. When the opportunity appears and someone tells us that we can make a lot of money really fast, we want to pay $40 for that, no? After all, the money that we can get is thousands of dollars.
The dishonest marketer makes money for everything that you buy and you are left with having to replicate his success. The only problem is that you do not have the money he has and the knowledge he has.
I always say this:
If it is too good to be true, it isn’t true!
Hard Work Pays Off
If you really want to make a lot of money on the internet, you need to work hard. You should never buy a miracle formula that teaches you to make millions while you lie in your bed and you press some buttons.
There is no automated way to make money online. While you can automate some processes, new things that have to be done appear as you automate others.
