If you’re thinking of trying to earn money running an online company, the issue that is most likely to be on the top of your mind will be, Making money online: Can it be done? A few years ago, I had the same question bouncing over my mind
I’ve read many stories of people earning millions online without prior experience operating a web-based company. I’ve heard of how they’d made millions online from selling eBooks and seminars or even courses.
I’d also heard of how simple it was to earn money from this method. It was so simple anybody could make it happen.
Being the skeptic who was born I am, I wasn’t entirely convinced by what I’d read or was told and decided to investigate a little deeper to see whether this was an idea that could be a viable business. Can the average person on the street benefit from this idea and have a chance to earn cash online?
Ultimately, I knew when I decided to go this route that I was taking a considerable risk, spending a lot of time and money.
Then I began researching and found that several names were popping into my search regularly, including Robert Kiyosaki, Mark Anastasi, Derek Halpern, and Andrew Reynolds, to just a handful.
These guys earn millions through online businesses they started with no experience or money, and for a small fee, they’ll teach you how they make it.
These people are at the highest in the hierarchy of food, making incredible amounts of money; when I read reviews on their website and analyzed the students they’ve taught, I noticed that many of those who Mr. Big taught went on to make small fortunes of their own.
Further research revealed that there are millions of people all over the globe earning money online, earning anywhere from $1000 per month up to $20,000 from their online business.
So, the short answer to this question is an overwhelming yes!
We know that earning money online is feasible but what happens do you do if you don’t know the basics of what you’re doing with computing or on the web? They must be IT, geeks, right?
No, not in any way…
While some of those who make money through this method have computer savvy, the majority had limited experience in that area before their start, and some don’t even have it. They outsource the tasks to other people who perform their tasks for them.
While researching this, I discovered that earning a regular income from your web-based business doesn’t require any knowledge of IT or any qualifications in computing to succeed, only determination, time, and a desire to acquire the fundamental skills needed to succeed.
It’s not as though when you have all the above qualities, you’ll be the grade, and for every successful person, thousands of people go to the side.
People who start with high hopes and determination are soon disillusioned with how much effort they’ll need to put in to make little progress.
What makes them give up?
What is the reason for them to give up their goals?
I discovered several reasons that every one of the people gave up. However, the majority of them quit due to three reasons…
If the uninitiated choose to go online for marketing, they believe that since the internet is all there, there will be no or little cost to be incurred. Of course, this is not the case. Even if you work primarily online, often in your spare room, it’s still considered an enterprise, and no business can operate without the expense of overheads.
If they have a computer, the costs will continue to be incurred…
Domain names, web hosting, domain names, advertising making client lists, and products to market (if you don’t make an own) mention some of the things they’ll be first exposed to.
Of course, some of these could be completed for free or cheap, but it is generally to the detriment of the amount of time it’ll take to earn a consistent income, and some individuals do not have the time to sit and wait.
This brings us to the third main…
The main reason why many people decide to give online marketing a shot is that we’ve been lured by the stories of successful entrepreneurs who made thousands within the first few months after launching. Although this may and has happened, it’s an exception, not the norm, but when I looked
- into the time it took for some of the best-recognized names to make money, I was astonished by what I learned…
Chris Farrell (Online Millionaire) was one of the first to begin earning money after only six months.
Derek Halpern (Online Millionaire) Built his business up for 12 months before deciding on a product to market. Steven Essa (Online Millionaire) took eight Months before he saw any returns.
The internet marketing industry is full of successful individuals who have spent a lot of time trying to find any results from their investments.
What is the moral?
Don’t quit your job as a day-to-day worker just yet; however, don’t quit on your dreams simply because it’s taking longer than you thought it would be.
Most people getting into internet marketing believe they will be successful with just two hours per day…
Although this could be true for experienced internet marketers, this is far from the truth for people just beginning out, and you should be prepared to work hours (long) hours that will be needed to ensure everything is in the right place.
If you’re already working at a full-time job, it will mean sacrificing your weekends and evenings and possibly losing time with your family and friends. You may also not have time for your hobbies and interests (at the very least for a time).
Once you’ve completed the setup process, you’ll be faced with many hours of work trying to build your customer database. Keep your website(s) up-to-date and write blogs promoting your products and launching new products. etc.etc.
Be assured that there’s a lot of time and effort you’ll have to commit to before you can take advantage of the results of your efforts.
Earning a steady income online is quickly done. However, it’s not for all.
To achieve success, you’ll require determination and solid faith in what you’re working on…
You’ll need the support of your closest friends and the right attitude to conquer the challenges you’ll have to face.
When you consider the implications and the sacrifices you’ll have to make and the numerous challenges and frustrations in locating the proper assistance with advice and guidance, It’s not difficult to see why so many people had given up on their dream and returned to the way they did before they came up with this bizarre idea.
But it is a good idea to start looking wide and being aware of hurdles you’ll have to conquer in the process, and you realize that this is a race, not an athletic race, then your odds of earning income online are dramatically enhanced.
