Recently there was a member asking me: “I am jobless now. I heard many people say we can make ton of money online? I also heard a lot of gurus guarantee us to make money online fast if we use their push-button system. Are these true? I am a newbie. I have no internet marketing skill, no website, no money . I am confused how can I start to make money online? “
What this member asks are common questions for most newbies.
It is right to say there are ton of money to make online, if not why there are so many big companies get their wealth from internet? Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Alibaba, Tencent, Amazon, just name a few BIG names here. Of course there are many other self-made millionaires/individuals out there who make millions just from Internet Marketing. But are we able to copy them? We will see later.
Secondary, the newbie said many gurus have “push-button” system. This is very skeptical, unless you bought over their entire system and probably their campaigns with all the sale funnels and targeted traffic sources. But who want to sell their sale funnel to you if it is already making tons of money for them? If even they do, the price tag will not be affordable for most newbies.
Now, what is my 1st advice for this member?
FIND A REGULAR JOB FIRST.
This is because as a newbie, it is NOT easy to make money online, I mean a lot of money online that enable you to quit your 9-5 job. Unless you are already rich or you have a lot of saving that can last you for at least 1-2 years without a full time job.
There is a learning curve for newbie to achieve some success in internet marketing. Of course this depends largely on individual background, skills, attitude and determination. What I am trying to tell you here is there will be some learning curve, failure, frustration etc when you first started out. For newbie, the learning curve could be very steep, yes, very steep! This is sad to most newbies, but yet it is true.
Therefore you should have some other financial plan in placed first before you really step both of your legs in internet marketing world (full time). After you have enough financial source as your back up, then you can start your internet marketing journey on part time basis. This will eliminate any financial stress while you try to crack the code to make enough money online to survive. With your financial burden addressed properly, then you will able to really learn the various skills and many different way of making money online without stress and distraction. Only then you will have better and faster chance of success.
Listen, all the internet marketing newbies, there are only only only 3 steps to make money online from scratch. 3 Important Steps.
Step 1 – Learning
Say this 3 times to yourself.. Learning, Learning, Learning.
Before you even thinking of making money online, you must learn the various ways of Internet Marketing elements first. For example, affiliate marketing, CPA, bux, adsense, ClickBank, Ebay, Aliexpress, Amazon, contexture ads, wordpress, hosting, autoresponder, leads, leads generation, PPC, Adwords, BINGs, SEO, SEM, keyword research, Solo Ads, Traffic Exchange etc…Make sure you know as much as possible. As with many things in life, success comes from mastering the basics.
You can get all this info easily from internet, Google, reading internet marketing blogs, free ebook etc. It can be overwhelming at first, but once you know and familiar with them, then you should at least know which area or opportunity is most suitable for you, according to your own time, character and budget.
Step 2 – Action
Yeah, everybody know there is money to be made online now. And some of you should have figured out different way of making money online now. So what is the next step?
Yes, take action, take action, take action.
After you gain some basic knowledge and have decided what online business you want to do, now you need to take action. Lottery has highest ROI investment right? You spend $1, and you know there is possibility of making millions over night. But if you don’t even buy the lottery ticket, you will not have the millions..you only have the millions dream.
But taking action doesn’t mean you can simply choose any program to start. What I mean here is to take the right action. If not, your pocket will be burnt very fast.
If you have limited budget, you can start by joining free programs first. Some of the free programs and internet marketing tools are really workable. However, I have to be frank that you may not able to make big money with free programs. Therefore after you have tested the free program and if it is work for you, you can consider to upgrade to paid one (if it has such option) to expand your money making potential faster and bigger.
Step 3 – Focus
Now you have finally started the internet marketing business. The truth is, make money online is fun when you see the money coming in. But if you are not making money, you will feel bored and lost your interest easily.
Let me tell all newbies, one of the big challenges with online marketing is how easy it is to get distracted. You are always overwhelmed with all sorts of shiny new opportunities popping up and being presented as a way to achieve quick money and success.
Yes, at least for me when I first started out with no knowledge and little money. I tried to jump from one program to one program, whenever I see another eye-catching ads that is promoting some “killing” push button method, I will most likely tempted to purchase. My pocket soon get burnt. This is killing me and I only made penny or nothing from some of the programs.
Don’t do that , please. This is not going to work.
You need to focus, focus, focus..ok, say that for 3 times.
At least when you first starting out.
So before you ever thinking of buying another guru’s program which claims can let you make money in the next 24 hours with a simple push-button method, think twice. You better look back on what you have learned and think why it can’t make you money. Try to search and learn deeper on the method/opportunity you choose and see how other marketers do it successfully. You should able to dig all relevant information and reviews on google. You just need to be focus and spend time to find out (and learn) more. Only buy when you know what you are going to buy. If not, try to focus on what you are doing now before you jump boat.
Forget about shortcuts or quick cash. No shortcut in Internet Marketing world.
Lastly, just as mention above, there are tons of money to be made online. You just need to keep on learning the fundamental, focus on 1 or 2 workable opportunities and keep on working on it. Remember, there is no shortcut. There is no but. There is no excuse. You got to be very determine. You got to work hard and you must not give up easily. As long as you don’t give out and work hard, you will eventually achieve the success, this is for sure, trust me!
