Every internet user especially with a tinge of entrepreneurship wants to make money online instantly, and without investment. I understand this quite well as I was one of them. However, let me get it straight, this is not going to happen, even if you are a internet freak or a genius. But this doesn’t men you can’t make money online. You can, and lots of it.
I am writing this article because I have noticed thousands of people search instant online money making methods everyday and they land up reading some misleading or useless article, by which they are usually misdirected or lose money, instead of making it. Hence, I decided to get it straight, or more importantly, get people in the right direction.
First thing I will suggest you to do is, remove the concept from your mind that you will make millions in a week. I am not saying you cannot. You can but probably after months and years of hard work. This lure of making money instantly will trap you in scams and frauds. Hence, wiping off this concept from your mind will ensure you don’t lose money. Second, you become quite practical, instead of living in dreams.
It has taken many years for me to achieve something I can relate as “successful” in making money online. Initially, like every starter, I made numerous mistakes and made many wrong judgments because I was assuming things instead of learning the facts. However, I learned from all my mistakes, which is still considered to be the most important element of my success.
Okay, let’s start with some lessons. People adopt two very popular ways to make money online: Google AdSense and affiliate marketing products from ClickBank. These two methods have helped many people to make millions. However, not every individual is successful with it as there is a wrong way and a right way to go about with it.
People would click on these links (Ads or affiliate product links) only if you are able to attract traffic. And this traffic should be consistent and growing. However, most beginners create a website, paste links, and check their bank or paypal account daily for millions. Ask yourself, why would people visit your website? Just because you want to become a millionaire? Ha.
Here is the key. ADD VALUE. Provide some value addition, provide information that will help people lead a happy life.And you would be able to add value regularly only if you love your business. Hence, it is important to choose (blog or product) that you love. Make it fun so you wouldn’t have to hate your work. And you would earn money through visitors. So, remember to help them first. They are your priority.
I think it’s really important to get the basics right before you start any business. Making money online is easy. So is eating. However, if you try to eat your food through your ears or nose, you wouldn’t be able to feed yourself, ever. So, get the right direction, learn from your mistakes, amend your strategies, and make money online.
