How To Make Money Online For A Beginner – For 2015 And Beyond
As I write this 2015 is just around the corner and I have already received a lot of emails asking for my help and guidance from people who want to make 2015 their breakout year for building an online business.
My answer to you is – absolutely!!
So today I’m going to share with you why many people don’t reach their goal of making money online.
And the reason I want to do this is because knowing why and how people fail online will help you succeed online.
And then of course I’ll share with you how you can reach your online money making goals in 2015 and beyond.
Plus a personal helping hand from me to get you started.
Now I’m not going to hold back any punches.
So make sure you read the whole post because what I’m about to share with you will save you a TON of aggravation, frustration, time and probably the one thing people lose over and over again – MONEY!!
Here’s Why Many People Fail Online
Well there are several reasons, but here are a few of ones I feel are the most common.
1) You Get Caught Up In What You Want To Hear
And it’s just not you, we all do.
And because of that it makes us vulnerable to slick marketing.
These so-called self proclaimed online gurus know what buttons to push and know what to say, they know exactly what you want to hear.
All they count on that.
That’s why so many people fall for all the crap scam programs promising you wealth overnight.
And you know the pitch.
You have some putz guru telling you his sad story of how he/she was a furniture mover barely making ends meat and then one day he/she discovered this secret for making money online that no one knows about.
But because he can’t keep this secret any longer he/she will share it with you. Of course for a price.
And all you have to do is follow him/her and the money will simply roll in with no real effort.
Lies, Lies, Lies!!!
And we fall for that because that’s what we want to hear. The chance to make money with no effort.
We’re simple creatures and we like the path of least resistance – so when someone tells you that you can make a fortune in a matter of days with little to no work.
Our brain turns off the logic and all we can think about is how easy it’s going to be to make money online with this program and how it will solve all our financial problems.
But in reality what happens?
You buy into these programs and all you end up doing is wasting your time and more importantly you’ve lost more money to another scam and gotten no where.
I’ve said it a million times and I’ll say it again.
There is no secret, there is no short cut to making money online.
Never Has Been – Never Will Be!!
The fact is any program promising you you’ll make money overnight and you don’t have to do any real work for that to happen is a scam!!
If you’ve been scammed you’re not alone – even I was scammed in the beginning of my online career. But the sooner you realize that it’s all slick marketing you’ll never be scammed again.
Here’s What To Look For
The are a lot of tell tale signs that a product is a scam but here’s the ones that certainly should raise some red flags for you.
- That you can make BIG money in a matter of days with little effort
- Everything is automated – hands off – set it and forget it
- Lots of screenshots of income – usually clickbank faked screenshots
- If there is a video or sales page which spends more time telling how much you can make than actually showing you how to make money
- If there are lots of pictures of big houses, fancy cars, excotic vaction spots or the so called guru is standing (photo shopped) in front of any of these things
- Lots of negative reviews – not hard to find for these scam products
- Limited offer. If you leave the site this deal may be gone – yeah right come back in 30 days and the site will still be there with the same false threat
And the MOST important red flag:
Your Gut Feeling
I bet your mom or dad told you this:
If it sounds to good to be true then it probably is
So listen to your gut it’s your body telling you something is wrong.
So slow down – let the excitement fade and take the time to do your research. You’ll soon find out that you have found a money making scam.
I get so pissed off when I hear of someone getting ripped of by these scams.
So in 2015 I’m on a mission to expose as many of these scam programs as I can. And hopefully I can help a lot of people avoid getting screwed.
2) The Proper Training And Mentoring
Building an online business is hard enough but doing it on your own is even harder. So having the right training that includes mentoring make things a lot easier.
Having this gives you the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of a person or persons that have been there done that.
A person(s) who can keep you from making mistakes that will cost you time and money.
Until I found the right mentor and was provided the correct training I was just spinning my wheels. If you haven’t already read my profile you’ll see I struggled for years before I made one single dime online.
But once I did find the right training and mentor I made over $300 within 2 months of having that proper training and mentoring.
That’s how powerful it is having the right people in your corner. People that are like minded and have no agenda.
In my opinion these are the two main reasons why most people fail online.
By getting sucked into buying these crap scam programs, and not having the right training and mentoring.
Maybe I should have mentioned this earlier.
But making money online is NOT easy. If it was everyone would be achieving their online money making goals.
Just like any goal you want to achieve. It takes hard work, dedication, and unwavering determination.
Not some $49 scam program promising you the moon and telling you you don’t have to work to make money online and it can all be set up automatically.
Until you understand you’re not going to build a solid profitable business overnight you’re going to keep losing money and failing at building, hell even getting a successful online business off the ground.
End of story!!
Here’s How You Build A Successful Online Business
Ok what I’m about to share with you is NOT a secret. This is how hundreds of thousands of people are making a fulltime income online. It’s how I make a fulltime income online.
Four simple steps.
First – Do What You Love
Don’t listen to someone telling you what you should be marketing online.
If I told you, you could make a fulltime income from taxidermy and you hate taxidermy.
How long do you think you would last building a profitable business about taxidermy?
I think it’s safe to say, not very long.
So don’t do it.
You want to begin building your business with what you love to do.
So that’s a hobby or passion.
If you love gardening – you can make a fulltime income online from your love of gardening.
If you love remote control cars, planes – anything RC – you can make a fulltime income online from your love of RC vehicles.
If you love yoga – you can make a fulltime income online from your love of yoga.
I could go on and on.
There are millions and millions of products that align with any passion or hobby you have allowing you to turn what you love into a full time income.
Second – Become An Affiliate
Build your business as an affiliate marketer. This is the path of least resistance for any beginner.
All you’re doing is marketing other peoples products that align with your passion or hobby and you earn a commission for every sale of that product.
And you’re not selling. By simply sharing the love of your hobby or passion and pairing that up with products – you make money.
The great thing is the company you’re affiliated with does everything for you. They take care of the payments, refunds, dealing with customers – everything.
Once you make the sale your job is done, you just do the best part – make the money.
I did a whole post on all the details of affiliate marketing if you need to read it.
The reason affiliate marketing is so successful for most people is that the threshold to get started is so low. In fact you can get your whole business off the ground for free.
I’ll show you how to get things started for free in a second.
And I speak from experience. I’ve been making a fulltime living as an affiliate marketer since 2005.
Third – You Need The Right Tools
Like any business you need the right tools. A carpenter needs his hammer and saws and stuff to do his job.
And as an online marketer you’re going to need a few things to get things going.
Most importantly you’re going to need…
- A Website
Your website is your storefront. And hosting is needed so your website can be found online.
And you can get both of those for free. I’ll share where in a second.
Fourth – Training And Mentoring
You need the proper training and mentoring. Without it you’ll have a harder time building your online business.
I’m not saying it can’t be done, but it will definitely be a lot harder and take a lot longer.
The proper training will give you the right skills to build your business. And I’m talking about up to date training, not training you find in a book.
The internet changes all the time – so your training needs to keep up with these changes. Books can’t keep up with these changes, they stay stagnet.
And mentoring is needed for the times you get stuck, have a question or just need a kick in the ass because you’re not on point that day.
I’m not foolish enough to think I know it all and I don’t need guidance or help. To this day I have mentors and I get training everyday – that’s why my business grows everyday!!
It’s the fool that thinks they do know everything. This person will eventually get left behind and his/her business will slowly fade not grow and die.
And That’s It!!
Begin with what you love, align yourself with a company as an affiliate that has the right product.
Have your website (storefront) and get the right training and mentoring.
And doing this is a lot simpler then you think – it’s just a matter of following the steps of getting it done.
My Offer To You In 2015
Before I give you my offer, let me ask you a few question.
And be honest with yourself.
How badly do you want to build a profitable online business?
Are you willing to do what it takes to achieve your online goals?
Don’t answer these questions lightly.
Because if you don’t want it bad enough and you’re not willing to do what it takes – you’re going to fail.
Simple as that.
It’s not going to be easy, it’s going to take hard work and you know it’s not going to happen overnight.
And like many people you’re going to have days you’ll want to quit.
I had days that sucked and I had days where I wanted to quit. But I also had what a lot of people didn’t have. A mentor and support.
And that’s the BIG reason why I never gave up and why I achieved my online goals.
I had someone there for me who kept me in the right state of mind and reminded me of why I was doing what I was doing.
And I still have people around me to this very day that I look up to, that guide me and are there for me when I’m not on point for the day.
And for that I say – thank you – thank you!!
90% of your success is going to come from your mind set, not training or tools. Your mind set. Because what you focus on is what you get.
And the best way to get and stay in that right mind set and keep focused on the right things is to surround yourself with like minded people. People with no agenda.
People that want to succeed online and want to help you succeed online.
In that environment you chances of achieving your goals is raised a hundred fold.
