IT IS NOT EASY
Seriously. You must know from the beginning that making money online is difficult at first. You need a constant source of income to stay above water and invest in your online businesses.
Therefore, for anyone who has $ 0 in their bank and has overdue bills, I want to give you this real advice: GO TO GET A REAL WORK. Seriously, you will have so many problems if you do not have a small nest to work with and have your bills covered. Most people fail because they jump at the wrong time.
Making money online is not something you try to do when times are bad. You are preparing for failure. Trust me; get a job with a fixed salary and devote your time away from work to earn money online.
Many people associate make money online with easy money. That is very far from the truth. It’s hard. Very hard!
If you really want to make money online, follow these guidelines. It is only my opinion, and nothing is written in stone here. My goal is for some newbies to see this and see what it really takes.
YOU NEED MONEY TO MAKE MONEY
The experts will tell you that you can start earning money practically overnight if you get traffic on your website and it starts ringing in affiliate sales. It’s that easy, right? INCORRECT.
The CPA and the affiliate marketing space are full. There are so many people trying to earn money online. 80% of them have no chance. Who wins all the money? Those who have money to spend and invest. They are the ones who have the currency to invest in proper SEO and control the top of the PPC results. They also spend crazy money on Facebook ads and any other source of traffic that produces results. They have money to test the crap from ads, banners and traffic sources.
Many people post on forums and comment on social media post saying that they have $ 50 to invest in PPC. Leave it; save your money. $50 will buy you few meals.
YOU SHOULD NOT EXPECT INSTANT RESULT
It kills me, and it’s amazing how many people expect to earn money overnight or even in their first month.
If you spend some time to study those who succeed in making money online with extensive experience, you will know that they failed so many times than they were successful. Some did not start earning money for several months, but they knew that if they kept learning and kept moving forward, they would eventually succeed.
At first, your usual job is in place to pay your bills and support your family while you learn Internet Marketing. If you do not have that safety net, stress will cause you to panic and make bad decisions.
When you have an offline job, and you know that your accounts are covered, you can learn and absorb information at your own pace. Everyone wants to make money online as soon as possible, but that is not how it works.
You need to learn, read and solve it at your own pace. With your bills covered, you DO NOT NEED instant results, which allows you to calculate it at a pace that is calm and allows you to discover it.
YOU CANNOT BE JACK OF ALL TRADE
We see it all the time in forums or social media platforms where people try to create a site and monetize it with AdSense for a minute, then, the next day, they ask about how to create a Clickbank review website, and then, a few days later, they want to create Instagram accounts. Enthusiasm is great and wanting to venture into many different areas is a good goal, but it is not practical. And if you open up too much, you’re going to fail.
At first, you must choose one thing to focus on and spend all your time learning everything you can about it either create a blog and monetize it with CPA and AdSense offers, or run CPA bids using traffic sources.
Find one thing that interests you and stick to it. Do not bounce between several different things. You have to dedicate all your time and concentrate on one project at a time, especially at the beginning.
Look at the best members of the game; they are experts in one area. This is how they become so successful. They are not everywhere trying to do everything. They dominate one thing and continue to evolve with it.
WHY DO PEOPLE SAY THAT METHODS TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE DOES NOT WORK?
Because they do not give that method enough time. They expect instant results and give up before they discover it.
You should be grateful that it is not easy. Who would serve you a beer in your local pub or would come to mow the lawn and take care of your garden? Working on the internet and making a living online is very difficult.
Just like a professional athlete trains without stopping, someone with goals to earn money online needs to read, study, test without stopping. If you want it badly, you have to lower your head and DO THE WORK.
YOU NEED TO TREAT INTERNET MARKETING LIKE A REAL BUSINESS
This is where many mistakes are made. Newbies think they can work when they want and be successful. Internet Marketing is a real business.
What would happen if you showed up at a normal job whenever you wanted? You would be fired.
What would happen if you left after a couple of hours of work? You would be fired.
Yes, part of Internet Marketing is the ability to work from anyplace in the world. It is up to you to control how much you work and when you work. Some offers will require more work. Hell, I know people with successful online businesses that could run 2 hours a day, but they worked long hours of 20 hours when they started!
That is the end of my nak*d truth to newbies. I sincerely hope this helps some people to solve this correctly. Any questions, comments or points to contribute/add fire away. As always, I hope you enjoyed reading.
NEVER PUT ALL YOUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET
Once you choose something to pursue, you should make sure to diversify as much as possible because Internet Marketing is always changing and sh*t happens.
Imagine that you decide to start a blog about personal finance and that you have selected the following ways to monetize your website:
- AdSense: ad units across the entire site
- ClickBank offers: mixed offers in your blog posts and send offers to your email list
- CPA offers: mixed offers in your blog posts and send offers to your email list
Therefore, you want to drive as much traffic as possible to your blog to click on ads, click on your affiliate links in the content or join your email list through some offer.
Therefore, some traffic sources in which you would like to research on are:
- Facebook Ads
- Guest Blogging
This way, if a Google update destroys your traffic overnight, you can increase your other traffic sources. Just turn the dial and set it. If you put all your eggs in a basket and spend all your time and money on SEO, you would be at $0 level the minute the update kills your SEO.
YOU HAVE TO BE MINIMALIST TO START (AND MAYBE GIVE UP SOME LUXURIES)
People who try to make money for the first time and go out to buy a watch or some other stupid material possession are doomed to failure. You have to stay firm and stay focused.
Do not start to impress anyone. It will not earn you more money. Do you know what you MUST spend your money on? A large computer, smartphone, laptop, and online tools/software. Things that will help you advance your online marketing.
You should also see what you spend the money on and look for ways to reduce expenses. This allows you to use the saved money to promote your Internet Marketing career. If you eat out a few times a week (I was very guilty of this) stop it and cook your meals at home.
YOU NEED TO SAVE MORE MONEY
This goes back to the previous point. When you start earning money, and you watch it roll, DO NOT spend it. Save something for a rainy day. If your goal is to be autonomous, then you should think about the big picture.
There are no health benefits, retirement funds, etc. You are 100% responsible for your future. When you start earning money, I suggest that you hire an appropriate accountant and work with a financial advisor and planner.
When you are 75; you will be happy to spend some money instead of buying that sports car or spending your money chasing girls.
I’m not saying you should not have fun. You should have a lot of fun. Do not live beyond your means and concentrate on saving money.
