Can You Really Make Money Online Overnight?

Aug 17, 2007
If you are an entrepreneur just getting into internet marketing, it is vital that you avoid the myth of making money overnight. Certainly it is possible to make money online while you are sleeping, but this is not going to happen right away. There is a great deal of time and energy that must be put into the business before you will begin to see results.

Everywhere you go you will see statements claiming you can instantly become rich or that it is easy to make money online. These are the kinds of statements that result in hundreds of thousands of people quitting so quickly. Too many people believe these statements and end up quitting after a couple of weeks with no results.

Just like every business in the world, you have to start from the bottom and work your way up. How do you expect to make money online overnight if nobody knows about you? In order to get your name out there, you have to do a great deal of advertising and promoting. But if you don't have a website developed or anything to promote, than what is the point of advertising?

If you already have experience with the internet and building websites, than you can certainly begin making money online rather quickly. But it still takes time to become noticed on the search engines and by the millions of people that search the internet every day. Every day there are hundreds of websites that are being started and even more that are further developing their websites. So what makes your website so special?

When you begin searching for something on Google or Yahoo, what do you click on when the search results come up? Most probably you will click on one of the top four or five results. At most you will scroll to the end of page one. What people don't realize is that it takes either a lot of money to get to page one on the search engines or a great deal of time and keyword optimization on your site to get to that point.

In order to get to where you want to be, you have to research the market and find out what they are looking for. Once you have taken the time to research and talk in forums with the people, you have to process this information. Take in everything that you have heard and develop ideas. Finally, you have to take this information and build pages of content and market your business to the people looking for it.

This doesn't necessarily sound like a walk in the park overnight deal, does it? As you can see, in order to make money online you have to give it time. If you do decide to give it time, the sky is the limit for the kind of success you can have with internet marketing.
