Have you ever thought to yourself “I want to earn money online but don’t know where to start”? If so, you are not alone. Thousands of people hit the web daily looking for ways to earn money online but don’t know what they are looking for or even what is available to them.
It wasn’t all that long ago I was in the same boat. I knew people earned money online, I knew I wanted to be one of them… but I didn’t have the “foggiest idea” how on earth they were doing it.
What’s more I was the world’s greatest technophobe! The only skills I had were sending and receiving emails and surfing aimlessly around the net!
I had a couple of ideas but nothing set in stone. To further complicate things I was a little leery due to seeing hundreds of ‘less than honest’ business schemes, or scams on the web …you know the ones that paint the picture of instant wealth…featuring huge mansions, fast cars and money flying across your screen & some dweeb in a lawn chair! After a while, you wonder what’s real, what’s not and don’t know who to believe. Some people are so boggled they quit in frustration figuring everything is a scam!
Common sense however has to prevail! It’s safe to say if making money online was so easy and instant, everyone would be doing it!
I’m not saying its horrendously difficult either… but you will need to educate yourself as to how to get things rolling.
As far as choosing a venture, there are many fantastic, lucrative business opportunities on the internet, you just have to do your due diligence and USE YOUR NOODLE! Be serious, choose something solid, learn & DO IT!!
When I made the decision to be a stay at home mom and sold my shares in my offline business to my ex, I vowed I would never go back to working a JOB. I even told my friends that I was going to earn money online but when questioned as to ‘what’ I would do I never had the answer because I didn’t know my options.
Fast forward two and a half years… and wow!! The things I have learned, how I have earned and what & know!!!
I’ve learned that it is possible for ANYONE to earn money online if they are willing to learn a few skills, implement a few common strategies and take action. If you seriously want to make money online, don’t just talk the talk without walking the walk. YOU CAN DO anything you want, however don’t expect it to be done for you and don’t expect an ‘autopilot’ or ‘turnkey’ business! (I hate those phrases!!).
The choices of opportunities are mind boggling. You can market an MLM , a direct sales business, be an affiliate, sell hard products, sell e products, write an e book on a skill you may have, adwords, adsense, a membership site, eBay, … you name it… the world is your oyster but you have to open it up to find the pearl.
There are thousands of businesses and entrepreneurs offering great opportunities for earning, offer support and occasionally provide training to get you up and running. BTW… I’m one of them!
If you are looking to earn money online but don’t know where to start, I’d suggest making list of the things, themes or topics that Interest you. . After all if you are going to work for yourself you may as well do something you love and can be passionate about.
Finding a business opportunity with the structure in place also is a great idea. Most of the top business opportunities have a system as well as a community of people who can offer direction.
Once you’ve chosen your path, the next step is to learn to market it (and you), so people know you exist.
Signing up with a person who has some training and mentoring in place can be a great asset. The internet is full of wonderful, knowledgeable people who provide valuable information for those who are willing to get off the couch.
You’re got a lot to learn, but it is learnable and if truth be told everything about learning how to make money online is fun and can be incredibly rewarding.
