Can You Really Make Money Online?
The answer is: I Don’t Know. The reason most people fail to make money online is the same reason most people fail in a Brick and Mortar business. They don’t do their research, they don’t put in the time, or they give up within a few months.
Being a former bar owner for 13 years I’ll use this as an example: If I were to open a bar I would do my research on locations. Ideally I would like it to be near factories so I could benefit from serving lunches to that crowd as well as people stopping in for a couple of cold ones after work. Position yourself where the people are!
Now, all I need to do is provide them with reason to stop in. Provide great lunch specials, happy hour and great customer service. Build a relationship with your customers and they will keep coming back plus they will bring their friends.
Will it take time? Sure it will. Will it take work? Yes, it will. Will you show up everyday and do what it takes? I Don’t Know
Online business is the same way!
There are many individuals who’ve created a considerable amount of wealth online, but let’s be realistic, it is a small percentage compared to how many try. Today, many online marketers claim to offer “easy” strategies to earn income, when the truth is like any other way of making money, it takes WORK.
The only difference is that with this type of work you don’t have a clock to punch and the most demanding task required is learning. You have to understand that most people are generally lazy.
Most people want something for nothing, they dream of having the lifestyle of wealthy people, but few are willing to do what it takes to actually make it happen.
Marketers know this, and they simply capitalize on this truth by creating advertising that appeals to our laziness and greed, and many people led by laziness and sheer desperation fall victim to such claims–because we want to believe them. I know because I’ve done it!!
I mean, who wouldn’t want to make money by barely lifting a finger or lose weight by taking a magic pill?? Well I’m here to let you know if you think it’s that easy, you’re kidding yourself.
There Are Many Ways To Make Money Online
Now obviously I’m not stating that all claims of wealth creation online are false, however I do believe that too many marketers oversimplify the task. The truth is that there are thousands of ways to make money online; the hard part is finding a strategy that works for you and sticking to it.
Lots of people end up spinning their wheels for months jumping from idea to idea or quitting if desired results aren’t achieved with a short time, and eventually give up after pulling their hair out and become discouraged.
Don’t pull your hair out, find something that you have an interest in; for example if you want to become a drop-shipper, only focus you efforts on drop-shipping research and strategies.
Adequate research is the key to making it online. Once you find your niche, conduct research on it. I also strongly encourage finding others who are successful in the same field, as it will benefit you to seek the guidance from vets who’re making money already.
You can have all the motivation in the world, but guidance and direction, will shorten your learning curve.
Finally, don’t just stop at one source for information-which is how a lot of people set themselves up for disappointment. Instead, keep learning, use different sources related to your topic in order to provide yourself with a solid foundation. Become the expert in your niche!
