The Truth About Making Money Online

Feb 10, 2008
Im sure you have all seen the many different work at home ideas and resources that are flying around the internet today. It is absolutely littered with so called gurus who want to sell you their master plans.

Did you know that only 5 percent of people who attempt to make money online will actually ever really make it. You see the problem is people enter this online world thinking that in a months time they are going to start making $100 a day and its not really their fault this is what they are been told when they purchase money making plans.

The real truth about making money online is that there is no real secret to it, it takes hard work dedication and patience and if youre not prepared to put it in you will not get it out. You will read lots of advice on how to make money and to be honest a lot of it is true but is over sold and misconceptions are given.
If you really want to make money online you have to get honest with yourself and know that if you want something worthwhile out you have to put something worthwhile in.

The next problem faced by the new money maker is the fact that results do not come immediately it takes time. It does not matter whether your affiliate marketing, blogging or doing SEO work you will not see significant results immediately and thats a fact. So I say again if you want results this month or even next month your looking at the wrong business.

If your still with me and determined to make a living online then you need to decide which area is right for you and I just want to give you a little bit of info about the areas I have experience in.

If affiliate marketing is something you could see yourself doing first of all you really need to study the markets you are thinking of entering, research, research and then research some more. Join forums relating to a that product and find out what people are really looking for. Once you have done this you need to decide how you are going to get traffic to the product and whether or not you are going to have your own web page. Are you going to use PPC advertising? If so research the cost, time, effectiveness everything. I personally use adwords without a website of my own and I have perfected my own method but it has taken me a year to do it and its only now I can honestly say Im living well.

I also dabble in blogging (doesnt everyone?) and I have really focused on SEO. This is a really frustrating way to earn money online put if you persevere with it the rewards are excellent. Again you need to read as much as possible and use trial and error consistently. It can take well over six months to get any website in the high rankings of the search engines but once you get there your site will be flooded with laser targeted traffic.

So the main things you need to know about making money online are, yes it is possible but you have to work extremely hard otherwise success will not come your way.
