How Can I Make Money Online At Home?
I would have to say I get asked the question”how can I make money online at home” at least 10 to 20 times per week either through emails or in person.
And I have the same answer all the time – “There are many ways – but there is one way that has the best chance of success for everyone!!” More about that in a minute.
But with that said there is things you need to understand.
Oh before I go further, I do need to mention this, as I have a million times:
“There Is NO Secret To Making Money Online”
Ok, moving on, first off you need to know if …
This Is A Hobby Or Business?
“So do you want to build a business or is this just a hobby?”
If you want to build a business, one that can support you and your family, one that you can pass down to your children… then you NEED to treat it as a business.
I think the problem is that when people go online to create income many treat it like a hobby and don’t approach it as a business. Probably because it’s not a solid thing – (brink and mortar).
But there is no difference to building a business online as to one in the real world. It takes the same determination, dedication, time and energy to become successful online as it does when you have a brick and mortar business.
The only real difference is the amount it takes to get started. Brick and mortar businesses can cost hundreds of thousands if not millions to start, an online business can be up and running for less than $100 – heck you can even do it for free.
And now that I mention it – I think that’s another reason people approach building a business online with such a relaxed or cavalier attitude is that it does not cost as much to get started so there is no real feeling of risk.
Well ask the people that have been ripped off online and have lost thousands. I think they would disagree. There is risk to building a business online, even if you don’t get coned.
So again … is this a hobby or a business?
Understand It’s Going To Takes Time
Despite what every so called guru is telling people, it takes time to make money online and build a real business.
So forget about making $30,000 in 30 days all on auto pilot with these USELESS programs being sold online. It’s never going to happen!!
Save your money – if it sounds to good to be true it is.
Just like any business whether it’s online or in the real world there are steps you need to follow. Follow the steps and you’ll succeed at building a very successful business.
Many people fail to accomplish what they want to accomplish because they fail to set goals.
What are you working towards?
What do you want to accomplish online in a month, 6 months, 1 year, 5 years? You really need to know where you’re going so you can know how to get there.
Write your goals out and put them where you can see them everyday. This will keep you motivated to achieve each and every goal you set for yourself.
And your goals will change as time moves on. Circumstances and just life itself will always alter your goals, but that’s a good thing so embrace it as so.
And remember this, by taking one positive step everyday towards your goals no matter how small you will achieve them.
You Need A Strategy
How are you going to make money online?
When I ask people how do they plan on making money online – the response I get is one of two:
1) I don’t know
2) Selling stuff
I understand the first response, many people know that the internet can be a place to make money but like many people they have no idea how to go about doing it.
As for the second response I always ask this follow up question; “what kind of stuff?”
And in most cases people tell me they would sell stuff on Ebay, which is not a bad idea, but is more complicated and harder to do then people think.
And in my opinion not the best business model for building and scaling up a business. There is a much better way.
The Best Opportunity For Making Money At Home Online
One of the lowest thresholds for starting a successful business online is Affiliate Marketing.
If you’re not familiar with the term affiliate marketing, simply put, you receive a commission from the sales of companies products you are affiliated with. I go into greater detail about affiliate marketing here.
