You should know that it is really possible to be one of those people who are happily making money on the Internet. You may have wondered, or even may have been trying for a while but have not seen results yet. In this case you really can wonder and become skeptical.
The so-called ‘secret sauce’ that winners use is really pretty simple. It is a combination of undaunted determination and consistent effort (w-o-r-k), plus enough time to produce results. Every money-making business in the world uses that same recipe more or less.
An Internet business is much easier, faster, and inexpensive than offline businesses, but at the same time there is really no magic that will bring instant wealth. “Success is still spelled w-o-r-k”. It is not possible to develop a successful business without working at it patiently. The speed at which you attain success depends on many things, but primarily how much effort you are willing to expend.
You are likely accustomed to working X number of hours for X amount of dollars with a job. However, running your own business is very different. You may work many hours without seeing any results at first as you will be in a normal learning curve as well as needing to build momentum. Your own self-motivation will push you onward if you are really determined to succeed. Never sit back and wait for something to happen because you will likely have a long wait unless you are actively engaged.
People that make money on the Internet are likely working long hours to get it all running, and are likely loving working from the comfort of home. When you are first starting out, it is best to have some other source of income, because the very nature of marketing and advertising whether off or online is about building and sustaining momentum over time. Almost nothing is instant.
If you doubt this, ask yourself how many ads you see in a day, including TV, radio, Internet, newspaper, email, postal mail and magazines? Likely you see quite a few. OK, now how many do you respond to? Probably very few, if any? That is normal. So keep in mind that 1 response for 100 ads or even less, may be realistic. You should know you are doing just fine even at that low rate and not to worry or become skeptical.
In order to earn a substantial income you have to put out 1000s of ads all the time and keep doing that, whether or not you see any results. While making money on online is very possible, it does require the ability to focus on taking action consistently and not getting discouraged if you don’t see results at first. You really need to ask yourself if you are capable of doing this. If the answer is yes, then you have a good chance to succeed with your online business.
