Expectations of Online Income
The road to Success
Did you try to make money online before but didn’t get success?
Welcome to the club. But before feelings of disappointment, frustration and hopelessness take over you just wait a minute. Lets take a break and think things through. Outside the online world (you know in the real world) people work 8 hours a day, 5 days per week (if they are lucky) and they hope for a raise in some years. If you own a business or ever tried to start one offline i am sure you didn’t expect profits and a steady income from the first months and i am also sure you worked countless hours in order to make your business successful. Right now there is a big elephant in the room in the form of a question.
Why do you expect things to be so different in the online world?
I know or i think i know why. Because everything is so much faster in the online world and people assume that making money and building successful businesses can also happen in a few days and hundreds of dollars will appear in your bank account every week. That’s the basis all the scammers use in the Internet claiming they can make you rich in a few days and you only have to work a couple hours per week. They give online money making a bad name. Of course the Internet is the biggest market in the world with 3 billion people constantly shopping, looking for information and interacting with each other but that also means there is a lot of competition. So, now we know that the road to riches and success requires hard work, determination, a lot of time, the will to succeed and the mentality of an entrepreneur who is able to set realistic goals.
Working from home isn’t easy because it’s not supposed to be. You have to make things work for you and always keep in mind that marketing is a slow process. The only person worth expecting from is yourself. There are legitimate ways to make money online but they require dedication before seeing a return on your time and serious work. But if you take it seriously and you are really willing to make money online you can totally do it. You will not become a millionaire in a couple of months but you will accomplish your dream working from home in your pajamas and being able to spend more time with your family and friends. So the first thing you have to do if you want to achieve success online is to stop imaging and start planning and doing. Stop imaging you can earn a full steady income in a month. Stop imaging you can build a successful business working 3 hours per week. Be realistic about your expectations and be professional about the way you approach your work.
Don’t Burn your Money
Don’t waste your time, your energy and your money with companies claiming instant success and riches. Don’t believe and don’t follow people showing you pictures of fancy cars or holding in their hands $100 bills and telling you how fast they earned them and how you will also be able to do it in a few days. In order to create a nice online passive income you have to do the hard work up front. The key to achieve that is not a magic program or some products you will sell bothering your family and spamming your friends but simply many hours of hard work. Exactly the same as in the real world.
There are thousands if not millions of scams all over the Internet and that makes it hard to find a real way to make money online. Affiliate marketing or eCommerce are just two of the legit and well known business models you can try and be sure that after some time depending on your work you will make money. There are dozens of ways to make money online some more profitable than others from taking surveys or selling your stuff on eBay but i am not going to list them here now (perhaps in an other post) because that’s not the purpose of the this article.The purpose is to inspire you not to give up and remind you that whatever way you choose to make some extra money online no matter how simple it sounds you shouldn’t expect to be that easy to accomplish. Also don’t forget that failure is part of success not the end of it. No matter how basic the idea sounds like starting a blog and making money through affiliate marketing and promoting links the process of creating a successful business will always remain steep and difficult.
