The Truth in making Money in an Business online and other Online Business Stories

You can make money online and you can do it.

There is no denying that internet marketing and having a business online is a inexpensive way to make extra money and create a full time revenue source. If done right it will start growing and creating income with little interaction (sweat blood and tears).

Internet Marketing has an “interesting” reputation. There are countless untruths about internet marketing, and in this post I will uncover the negative ones to look out for and you will be able to see the incorrect marketing tactics on your own. Hopefully I can give you some real understanding about what is need to make money in you online business.

How many times have you seen “One Click to Riches” or ”I made 15,000.00 over night with this system”. If you haven’t seen them, then you haven’t been trying to start a business online ;).

Keep things in perspective when starting your online business.

Let’s have a quick reality check. If you really want to make money online and be successful in internet marketing it requires study and work. Not saying that making money online is hard, it just requires some “sweat equity” as I like to call it.

If the truth be told of these untold riches hype, internet marketing, the only money being made is from the person selling you the product. Don’t get me wrong I have personally seen and been a part of 50k dollar sale days, but the prep and work put into to a successful campaign took days sometimes weeks. But once it launched it was a one touch button cash windfall.

There are many free resources and golden nuggets of information all over the internet that will help you make money online and get your business up and running. In very rare occurrences can you make money online with no financial investment.

In simple terms, time equals money if you want to save time and speed up some of the process of getting your business online up and running, but it costs money. If you have more time than money be prepared to work harder and do more things you have never done before. It can be done, but it will take some time.

At the very least of your expenses you will have:

  • Domain Name around 10.00 annually
  • Hosting for your website it varies 4.95 – 10.00 a month.
  • Autoresponder free to 20.00 a month

You will need an autoresponder so you can contact your clients and potential customers about products and services. There are some free ones available and some free trials but they usually charge by the email name or a flat monthly fee around 20.00.

There are several tools out there to invest into depending on your niche and what you are trying to accomplish in your online business and those prices vary.

So there are no surprises, be prepared to spend some money to make money online.

One of the other misunderstood ideas is that you need to purchase everything from another “guru” or mentor. It is a hard choice because you want your online business to grow and to grow quickly. Since you mentor or other Internet Marketer suggested the product or they use it personally you need to use constraint when receiving these offers because you can get into a “dog chasing his tail” routine. You have all kinds of products and tools but you are still trying to digest the first product and really haven’t fully utilized it to its potential.

You could be wasting money and time chasing the “latest” and “greatest” that just hit the market. You only have so much time to devote to a product or system so pick and choose, what you think will benefit you at that moment. One Step at a time is the stay the course or system. If you jump from one product to another without making any money or having a product unfinished to be left on the computer to die, will get you information overload and you will get frustrated and stop. When you stop it is always harder to get going again and you lose precious time.

So recap:

  • A steadfast work ethic to get your business online up and running.
  • A reality gut check, in most cases it will not happen overnight. Be realistic in your goals and learning curve of success.
  • You have to invest money to make money online.
  • Time verses Money (sometimes it is good to invest in tools and education to speed up your success curve)
  • Avoid “the one click million dollar” method type hype. Hype is good and it gets attention, just make sure there is steak with that sizzle.
  • Find a Coach/Mentor that you feel comfortable with their teaching styles and business techniques.
  • Stay focused on your prize, and ask questions and get help from your mentors.

You already have to computer technical tools to be a success online. You have to make the effort and your mentor and coach should be more than willing to answer questions to point you in the right direction. You have to make the journey and do the work it requires, but you do not have to do it alone.
