Here’s a very disturbing fact:
95% of people that make an attempt to start an online business will spend more than they make. In time, after not realizing a profit, they will throw in the towel and give up.
Does this sound familiar? Are you spending more than you’re making? Or, are the profits you’re pulling in so low that you don’t understand how someone can make a full time living online?
Rest easy. I was in your shoes at one time. But now I am happy to report that I’m in the 5 percentile that makes a full-time living online.
Here’s how I rose above from the other 95% and made a lot of money online.
First, I want you to put aside the thought of overnight riches. Sadly, it rarely works that way. I can say that I made a decent profit online in under a week, but I spent over a year researching how I was going to do it.
And that’s the real secret to making money online. You can’t jump in without an idea of what you’re going to do and expect that everything will take care of itself. That’s a pipe dream that many cling to. But it’s a very bad way to approach an online business.
Think about it. Let’s assume I want to be a computer programmer. Without a lick of experience I begin to drop my resume off at every business in town. Do you think I’m going to be offered a job and profit from being a computer programmer even though my only experience is running a cash register?
To acquire a job as a programmer, I would need to go to college. I would spend thousands getting a degree, and spend years learning the subject so I’m prepared.
But most feel that they can turn an online profit without an education. Why should it be any different? After all, the Internet is still the real world.
The reason I make a profit online is that I understand this reality. I know that to make money online I need to possess the right skills. So I spend time and invest money in my “education”.
I bought books that would show me what I needed. I learned web design through a few e-books I purchased. I learned the secrets of online marketing through other materials. I purchased countless products that taught me different methods to create online products that would sell. I’m still learning everyday, spending money to make money.
So, you really want to make a living online? Trust me, it’s a great way to run your own business and do whatever you want with your time. But it’s a real business. One that can take time to grow.
To profit, you can never give up. Set your sights on some powerful dreams that motivate you. Think of how nice it will be one you can call all the shots. No more time clock. Plenty of time to do the activities you enjoy. Call in sick when you don’t feel like working. Sleep in as late as you want with no one to answer to.
Spend time learning the skills you need and buy products that will help you achieve your goals. Ask others that are making money online for their help. Get a consultant. Pay someone to write sales copy or design a website if you don’t want to take the time to learn. And just keep pushing on. Soon, with time, you’ll reap the rewards of running your online business if you just invest the time and money into reaching your dreams.
