March 3, 2021

The amount of money you can make online depends entirely on how much time and effort you are willing to put into it. The common belief is that if you just work hard and devote your energy to affiliate marketing, you will make good money. Some people are looking for the magic formula that will make them rich overnight. Anyone who makes money online does it by following a formula or a plan. There is no magic formula. Just good marketing practices that have been proven over years with hard work and dedication.

baffles me. You can make money online just by promoting other people’s products. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. As it is, over 98% of internet marketers fail and quit. The secret to internet marketing is finding a system that works and sticking to it. There are many ways to internet market and you need to find one that suits your niche. When looking for products to promote, you should look for products that you are interested in yourself. If you are promoting a product you are interested in then you are more likely to make money. If you are not interested in the product then you will not put as much effort into it as if you were interested in it but have a lack of knowledge about it. It is interesting how much knowledge you need about a thing to make money online. For instance you can read the sales page and understand the features to much better and be able to come up with an answer to the question that invades your mind. In short “Would you buy this product?” Knowledge and the ability to answer these ” Would You Buy” questions is a major requirement for earning money online.

There are many ways to promote the product and start making money. The methods include pay per click advertising, article writing, social networking, blogging and so on. You will have to decide which one will work best for you and focus on that method. PPC is expensive and I stay away from it. I can’t understand why anyone would pay for traffic instead of just getting their message out there. Article writing is an awesome and cheap way to advertise. When done the right way, it can get you a lot of traffic. When you combine it with PPC it can be expensive but considering the possibilities it is really worth it.

Everyone has to start somewhere though. It is no different from any other job. You have to learn how to perform the job effectively or spend hours each day performing the job and get tired and frustrated because there are no results. In summary, put your plan together and work at it consistently. Put in the time and effort. In the long run it will be well worth it.

I can make a accurate estimate that you will have to do some work to make money online. How much time and effort you put into it will depend on your level of satisfaction with the job you are doing. Most people think that making money online is instant. The truth is that it takes a lot of work to make it work. If you are willing to put in the work you can make a lot of money.

Step 3- Take baby steps.
