Why You Will Never Make Money At Home Online

Aug 18, 2007
It seems like everyone and their mother these days is trying to make money at home online. Are you one of these people who buy into this dream that you are going to be your own boss and quit your job? I bet you have joined just about every make money online opportunity that is free or have tried paid surveys or looked into home typing or some other washed up online scam. You probably have one hundred e-books on your computer that you paid $97 for and promised you millions overnight. Let's face it, you might as well kill yourself now or go back to your boring job because I have some bad news for you. The chances are that you are not going to succeed.

Now the good news is that their is some light at the end of the tunnel for those privileged few who follow the golden rule to success online. First you must ask yourself this question: "How bad do you really want it?", just how bad do you really want to make money at home online? For some people it is just a hobby which they do not take seriously and the results will be relative to their actions.

Now let's take a look at some of the things which I can guarantee are holding you back from success. For those few privileged people who are willing to make the step to the next level I am going to show you what you need to prepare for to make money from home online.

There are three types of Internet marketers: Those who take action, those who take a little action and those who take no action and just read information. The third type should not even be considered Internet marketers because they do nothing at all. If you are one of the first two than you have a fighting chance but you are still not there yet. Even if you take action you are still one of the 95% who don't make money online at home.

My favorite saying is that the definition of crazy means doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results the next time. This is a trap that many marketers fall into. If you are trying something out like a marketing method and it does not get good results than don't do it at all or modify it until it works! If you keep on doing the same thing you will get the same results.

Your first step towards success is to TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY! Don't wait and don't think about it, just do it and if you fail do it again till you succeed! And remember just because something worked for one person does not mean that it will work the same with you. You have to experiment and find your own methods that are your specialty.

My next bit of advice would be to stop reading and buying into every information product that comes out. How many times have you seen the same old sales letter and same old information about how to make money online at home or how to make a million dollars with affiliate marketing or Ebay. Please folks stop buying into this. I am going to let you in on a little Internet marketing secret which is that there are no secrets and most of this information is available freely if you search for it.

Does this describe you? You come home from work at night and go online to search for a way to make money online at home and finally quit your job. You read the latest sales page from some million dollar a year marketing guru and he promises that if you buy his product your life is set and you have very little work to do on your part. You start to get filled with excitement with the thought of riches running through your hands as you pull out your credit card.

After you download the latest E-book or software you read through it with hope and optimism and feel really good about the plan put in front of you. "This is it!" you tell yourself. You go to bed that night with millions of ideas running through your head about starting your business. At work the next day you can't wait to get home and get started on your retirement.

When you finally get home you go online and search around a bit for and for some reason you just can't get started. After a while depression sets in and than a couple of more offers get thrown your way promising you that their is still hope and don't give up yet. You buy another book and the whole process repeats itself. Before you know it you have thousands of dollars of E-books and nothing to show for it. Can you see where this cycle is going?

Don't give up just yet. I am not saying that these books are all garbage and their is nothing worth reading or trying. Did you most people who read books never take action on it. The very few who decide to take action are the ones who succeed. I am not going to get into what products are the best to buy. I am just telling you that you have to stop buying and start doing. Promise yourself that you will never visit another forum again or read another review or buy another program that promises.

I promise you that if you never buy another thing again you will not be missing anything. Many of these marketers are very good at playing with peoples emotions and they know exactly what people want and what makes them buy. Many of these make money online at home products are just the same information repacked with a new twist or sales page. So stop buying into all the hype and put a business plan into action. You can learn all the marketing secrets in the world or buy all the automated business tools but if they just sit on your hard drive you won't make a cent.

The main reason that many people quit and jump from program to program is that they are promised riches with little effort and don't take action on it. They than get frustrated and start to believe that it is the program and not themselves and than go and try and find the better deal. Look, there are many scams out there but any of the legitimate make money at home online programs or systems all have the same potential to make money. It does not matter who has the better compensation plan or higher commissions. It all depends on how bad you really want it and how much effort you are willing to put into it.

I don't mean to be hard on you. I just want to tell you the honest truth about how you can really make money at home online. I don't want you to fall into the same trap that I did. If only everybody was this prepared when they got started and had the right state of mind than so many more people would be making money.

I am not going to tell you how you should make money at home online. This you have to decide for yourself. You have to find what works best for you and what fits your budget. You also have to factor in how much time available you have to run your business. All you have to do is follow three easy steps which is to decide on what you want to pursue as a business. This could be affiliate marketing, network marketing, content publishing, advertising, or have your own product or service. After this you need to find a good book or plan to follow. If you already have knowledge than skip this part or use free information. Last but not least is to take massive action and don't ever give up despite what anybody tells you and no matter what avoid all distractions and offers.

If you follow this simple advice I can guarantee that you will make money online at home. It's not really that hard and just about anybody can do it. Just believe in yourself and your abilities and have a little patience and in no time you will really be living the dream of being your own boss and quitting your job for good.
