One thing that seems especially ridiculous is when you hear about people making tons of money online. It almost seems fake that people can make a living using the Internet while you’re using it to look at cat pictures while your homework piles up. This article will help clear up some misconceptions about the Internet and give you some pointers about making money online.
1. You can get rich quick online.
Some people believe that you can get rich quick, or are sold or marketed to believe this is true. Building an online business takes time, dedication, and hard work. There is the rare exception when you hear a story about someone who got rich quick, but you don’t know their back story. What you have to know and understand is that these people already have an online background; they have business knowledge and experience so that when an opportunity comes along, they have the potential to achieve success more quickly. Similarly, these people may have a mindset and habits in place that help to fuel their success.
2. You can just build a website, or launch a product, and then you will be successful.
That is the easiest part of getting started online, and its really convincing but its only the first part. The real effort is marketing your brand, getting traffic, building followers, promoting, etc. That is where the real work begins. For example, people that get into publishing think that if they simply publish their book on Amazon, the money will come. This is so far from the truth. For a product to be on the market it had to go through some vigorous testing, marketing and then the launch. You can not just build something and then not monitor it. Look at the diamond: Diamond is created deep underground under conditions of extreme pressure and temperature and its one of the precious and most valuable minerals. This applies to on-line business, it has to go through extreme pressures for it to be called a business. Tangible results should be visible.
3. You can push a button and make money online.
This is not true at all. For all you know, you can be pushing all the wrong buttons! We have pushed plenty buttons before, ten years later we looking into the same buttons to push with the hope of making it work. It takes hard work, commitment, and sacrifice to build a successful online business. One has to be at the right place, right time, meet the right people and use the right tools to make a sound on-line business model.
4. You can make money online without spending much time doing it.
At the beginning stages of building an online business, there is a massive learning curve, so it takes time to build it up. Its like having a baby. As time goes on, your business won’t be as dependent on you for its needs and survival. Could you only spend a couple of hours/week on building your business? Sure, but it will take longer to build.
5. You can make money online without spending any money.
If you do not invest money into your online business, 99% of the time you won’t be successful. You will need to eventually set up a corporation, hire a lawyer, buy software, purchase a domain name, do advertising, invest in product development, hire a team, etc. You need to spend money to make money, and you need to feed your business, just like you need to feed a baby.
Nothing good has ever come easy. If you want to make that much money, if you want to have that much fame, if you want to have that particular kind of lifestyle, then my friend let me tell you — It is not going to come easy. You have to work day in and day out. You need to be really committed to achieving your goals. There will be a lot of failures but don’t let them stop you.
