The Real Truth About Making Money Online
One of the things that I get a chuckle over is all the hype and misinformation that gets circulated around the Internet when it comes to making a living online.
I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about…the sales pages that promise you the moon, the get rich quick schemes, the whole mess. It’s enough to make you sick.
Well, this article is going to reveal some truths about making money online. You may not enjoy hearing them, but if you’re going to have any chance of surviving in this jungle, you might want to make a note of some of these.
For starters, there is no quick way to get rich online.
Starting and running a business takes time and it takes a lot of work. The few rare exceptions to this rule were total flukes and most likely happened because somebody came up with a once in a lifetime idea that just happened to catch fire.
The chances of something like this happening are slim to none. Most businesses take time to establish and you’re not going to see a substantial income for many months.
Another myth I want to destroy is that you can make a good living online without knowing what you’re doing.
Sure, if you’ve got the money to just go out and hire everybody you need to run your business, I guess you could be dumber than a stump and make a go of it.
But in most cases, you’re pretty much on your own. And this means understanding a number of things including product creation, copywriting, ad writing, article writing, web site creation and the list goes on and on.
Most people don’t realize this, but there are tons of skills required to run a successful online business.
The last one I want to go over is that all you have to do is put up a web site and the money will come pouring in.
Contrary to popular belief, just having a web site doesn’t guarantee you an income. The Internet is a huge place and the chances of somebody finding your web site are slim to none if you don’t promote it properly. There are many ways to promote a business online. Some are more effective than others but the bottom line is simple. Without actively promoting your site, nobody is going to see it.
There are of course other truths about making a living online. In my signature is a link to a report that goes over many of them. The point is, unless you understand what you’re up against, you’re not going to be prepared for what you’re going to encounter along the way to those easy riches.
Oh yeah…that’s another one.
