It’s the hardest money you will ever earn on the internet. Most people won’t tell you that. You’ll hear all about how if you will just get started online, you can make money on autopilot. Buy this program or that product and you will make tens of thousands of dollars in the first week while you are sleeping. It doesn’t work that way. In some respects you build an online business in much the same way you do an offline business. It takes time, hard work and diligence to build both, however, that’s were the similarities end.
You can’t just hang your shingle and the money starts rolling in. However, if you build your business on a firm foundation, it will create the income and time freedom of your dreams.Aside from requiring hard work and diligence, not much else is the same. You will need to be open to coaching and to be teachable. Make sure you find a mentor that you really resonate with and has the same values and integrity as you do. You will have to invest a little money into training. While you can get some good free information online, to really get to the nuts and bolts of how this wonderful internet world works will require some investment.
You will need a blog, which is your home on the internet, the place where prospects and customers go to learn to know, like and trust you. You can take the time to learn how to set up your own blog if you are a little tech savvy, or you can hire a blog setup service to do it for you for a small fee.
You will also need to learn how to build a permission based email list of prospects who don’t mind you marketing to them, how to do email, article and affiliate marketing and lots more. Whew! Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it? Well, it is, but you can do it. How do I know that? Because I did it.
It took me longer than it had to for me to make my first $100 online. I wasn’t open to education or investing a little bit of money into myself in the beginning. When I did, I could ‘t get enough! I love the learning process. Everything is so different online, it’s fascinating! The people are wonderful and the opportunities are endless. Pretty much anything you can imagine can be done online, can be.. You don’t need to find a teacher that can teach you to make millions, at first, you just need one to teach you to make $100 dollars. To make $1000 dollars you just need to keep doing what you did to make $100 dollars, just amp it up a bit. Continue to learn, rinse and repeat and you’ll be making money online before you know it.
