Why It Is So Hard To Make Money Online For Newbies.
1. Curb Unrealistic Expectations.
This is how I made $$$ in just 24 hours doing affiliate marketing…
Learn how I build a list of 2,037 in just 3 days and made $$$.
Copy paste my entire online business and make $$$$ Now.
… You get the point.
You see all the right things the gurus want you to see and you believe them.
Yes, they did it and made it look so effortless, to sell you their product.
But no one explains how many trials they did before finally hitting their perfect case study.
How long they took perfecting their craft to command those results at will.
Would you buy a make money online product that promises to make you money in 11 months' time working your butt off daily?
Or the one getting you to Money land in just a day using a top-secret, just released, push-button traffic software?
The latter right?
It's not your fault though.
You've been deceived, getting played and kicked from one guru to the next and back like football.
It's not that ALL make money online products are scams, far from it, but do you have it in you to make it happen in that time frame?
And if it doesn't happen for you right away in a week, two weeks, or a month, will you still have the Patience to press on determined to make it work?
Blogging works right?
I mean research shows that marketers who prioritize their blogging efforts are 13x more likely to see a positive ROI.
Even better, small businesses that blog get 126% more lead growth than those that don't.
But even with this, did you know 97% of new blogs fail within 6 months to a year?
And this not to mention 81% of U.S. online consumers trust information and advice from blogs, with 6 out of 10 making a purchase based on their recommendations?
So what's the problem?
Did you know: If you accumulate 51 posts, your blog's traffic increases by 53%, then up 3 times after 100 posts, and by 4.5 times after 200 posts?
People, quit way before they've even written 51 top quality, SEO optimized valuable content posts. And by no means should this sound easy or doable in just 2 days.
It doesn't work like that. It'll take time.
Blogging works but it's far from a get rich quick scheme.
It's true there are several smart things you could do, to ensure sooner results from your blogging efforts. But even with that, it doesn't mean it won't take time.
And this applies not only to blogging. Whether it's apps or web programming, freelancing, affiliate marketing, crypto trading,.. etc. It will need time.
Unrealistic expectations are what corrodes patience. And without Patience, even the most proven of ways could look like total scams.
2. Non-stop Research For The True Magic Pill.
This is what's killing most newbies, my friend.
You simply can't quite find that true magic pill that will solve all of your money problems like ASAP.
And the gurus know this, so case studies after case studies, make money today products after another, it never ends.
Just visit Muncheye.com if you don't believe me and see just how many of these products are lined up. Every day there are new true magic pill products coming out.
Launch jacking has been and will always be a super profitable make money online quick method, and why not? The demand is there, growing by the day even.
But guess what, most of these products launching aren't the issue. Some of the methods discussed work, but the real problem lies with the person buying.
When shall all the research end?
Which business model, or work online method will it, be it?
For you to finally cut your teeth into and claim your fair share of the profits?
To help you out with this, what's your mind telling you?
There's always that voice at the back of your head, that tells you, look into that business model, it's got potential.
But you always come up with excuses why it isn't the perfect time yet.
It's time my friend, to do it.
Not tomorrow, but today.
I am speaking from experience with this. I always had excuses as to why it wasn't the perfect time yet to start blogging.
Don't do this. I beg you. End your research and end your suffering. Simple.
Here's what non-stop research does to someone. It brings about information overload. Growing your confusion by the day making it hard for you to take decisive action.
You want to be 101% sure about a method before you begin. But guess what, sometimes all you have to do is simply roll the dice.
3. Jack of All Trades Is A Master of None.
Now this one is very real.
I always like to reiterate that it's easier for a newbie to achieve more doing things sequentially rather than simultaneously for a reason.
I believe if someone took the time to really hone their craft in a certain field, it's inevitable to not be good if not an expert.
And being an expert in a field you know nothing about isn't as time-consuming as you might like to think.
Josh Kaufman, the author of The Personal MBA, explained that it doesn't take 10,000 hours to become an “expert in an ultra-competitive field”, but only 20 hours.
The equivalent of dedicating only 45 minutes a day for a month, to become competitive in your chosen field.
But the problem with many starting out online is the opportunity cost and the fear of missing out, FOMO.
That leads them to dabble several make money online methods, that ultimately ends in bitter failure.
Make money with bitcoin, count me in. Make money with Facebook groups, count me in. Make money freelancing, count me in. Make money drop shipping, count me in…
This is very much possible for a veteran to do, but is it, for someone just starting out?
Each one of these methods takes its own learning curve to master. Where time and dedication will be called for.
So it only makes sense to give each its own time to master before advancing to the next method.
If you want to make money online, it's really simple. Pick a business model that you want to pursue like this one, learn all you can about it while taking massive action, and make it profitable. Rinse and repeat.
If you pick drop shipping, work on it until you understand it well, and it's making you money consistently.
And only then should you consider working on another revenue stream that won't affect your dropship business.
Whether it's “I don't have time.”
“I'm not good enough.”
“I'm waiting for the right time.”
“I don't want to make a fool of myself.”
It all stems from fear. Period.
And when scared, excuses to make sure you don't do that which needs done now, are never far behind.
Newbies have fears when starting out, even the veterans did.
But it's in pushing yourself out of the comfort zone that takes you to the promised land.
You want to start vlogging and become a YouTube superstar, but you're afraid to appear on camera.
You want to start blogging but you feel like you aren't good enough, but who said this?
You fool yourself into thinking all the Googling will help, while all you need to do is start taking action.
Granted, your first few vlogs or posts will suck, but you'll grow and get the hang of it faster than you ever thought possible.
And you'll be like, “why didn't I start this sooner?”
“What was so hard here?”
Simple. False Evidence Appearing Real. FEAR.
Action is the solution to your fears and the determinant ingredient for your online success.
The first time I dropped a couple of bars on stage was an insane experience.
Walking to the mic was so hard, yet step by step I went, and I did it.
After that, I wish I would say it got even easier but no.
Even so, it didn't stop me from performing like it was my very last, every chance I got.
This was before I discovered this amazing online world.
If you want to make money online, you can't afford to be afraid to do whatever it takes to be successful. Even if starting out makes you scared.
Everything you want is outside your comfort zone. On the other side of fear.
So the question remains, do you have the guts to go after what you truly want?
Is your goal so grand it dwarfs your fears?
Mike Vestil, said he would cross over a burning house if it meant saving his mom. But he wouldn't risk it for a Rolex watch.
And he is right. Your goal, what you want to achieve should be grand enough to fuel you to overcome your fears.
If you don't have one, make one up.
Do you want your family to live on the streets without shelter?
Would you want your kids to suffer hunger if you can help it?
You've got to find your Push Factor and start working on your goal like Yesterday.
“Excuses are the tools of the weak and incompetent. They build bridges to nowhere and tunnels to nothingness… Those who excel in them seldom do in anything else, therefore, there are no excuses.” – Frank Ocean, goodreads.
“A year from now you may wish you had started today.” – Karen Lamb, goodreads.
Make your future self proud of you.
