Often, the first question I see many people ask when trying to start online is something along the lines of “What is the fastest and easiest way to make money?”, or “I have $xxx and want to make $x,xxx in a few days, how do I do it?”
Unfortunately if you are thinking anything is fast or easy, then you have unrealistic expectations.
The fastest and easiest way to make money is to get a job. Yes, you heard me right – if you are looking for the easy and fast (and guaranteed) way to make money – the best thing to do is just to go out and get a job.
Unfortunately when starting out to make money online, things will not be fast or easy. It takes time to “learn the ropes” and figure out what you are doing. Most people take several weeks/months to find success (some even more).
If you find yourself starting out and you are struggling and it’s take you weeks/months (or longer) to find success, it’s ok. We all find success at different stages and intervals. The most important thing is to keep going and don’t give up and keep at it- Keep learning, keep launching campaigns.
Don’t get me wrong, I am by no means trying to discourage anyone. I am not trying to get anyone to second guess themselves – you can make a great deal of money online through internet marketing, affiliate marketing, ecommerce, etc.
I just want to set the proper expectations, often the money doesn’t come fast and it’s normally not easy!
I always recommend to treat making money online as a business (which it is). Starting a business takes capital (money), time and dedication. Unfortunately many treat it as a hobby and don’t invest the time, money, etc.
Don’t give up! Keep Going!
