How Hard Is It To Make Money Online?

Jun 11, 2008
Every day, there are thousands of new blogs started and thousands of people trying to make money online for the first time. Yet, how many of your friends or family do you know that are successful at it? For all the people that start out, how many of them actually succeed? I was one of those people a year ago and I so I know first hand why so many people give up.

Most people start out with good intentions to make money on the Internet probably because they have heard or read ads that promise easy money and a carefree lifestyle. What they don't realize is that those ads are just hyped up advertizing that often border on outright lies. Making money with your computer online is not as easy as it is made out to be. In fact, it is downright difficult.

In order to make money online, you have to be prepared to do a tremendous amount of learning. Not only do you have to figure out what to sell but also how to sell it. You have to understand the dynamics of advertising and be able to get people interested in buying what you have to offer. In addition, you have to begin to learn a lot of technical computer and Internet related things in order to be able to set up shop.

There are many ways to earn money on the Internet but most of them ultimately involve owning a website and getting traffic and potential customers to it. This can be very daunting to someone who has little to no Internet experience. You can try to learn it all yourself as I did or you may be able to take some computer classes and cut down the learning time. Classes and paying people to teach you or do things for you can become expensive however.

Most people fail in their quest to make money online because they just give up. They learn first hand that it is not as easy as promised and that the learning curve is quite steep. If anyone could make money through the Internet, we would all be doing it and everyone would have that happy carefree life.

To be successful in most anything in life, you have to put in a lot of effort. Making money online is no different as I have discovered that I could work 16 hours a day, 7 days a week and never run out of things to do and work on. This is not what most people want to hear and when they discover that for themselves they just move on to something else.
