The hottest question on the Internet these days is “how do I make money online?” Well, that is a really tough question to answer in just a single article. The reason is that there are probably a million ways to make money online and the methods continue to grow and grow.

The “dot com boom” in the early 90’s and the subsequent crash was a major concern for many people which prevented them from entering the internet marketing field. But when you come to look at the people who actually make money online, it becomes apparent that the quitters really missed out on huge opportunities.

To be honest with you, making money off the internet is never easy and there is no get quick rich scheme. There are dedicated courses (check out Blogrankseo From Planning to Earning course) available to give you the resources and knowledge needed to actually make money.

But that’s all general information for how to do it. How many of those courses and guides tell you why to do it? The internet is an excellent medium to make money on, but some just lack the important mindset to do it, despite how much they actually know about the topic.

But why choose the internet? Blogging? I can’t stress enough how hard it is to actually make a decent living off of the internet, but is it something to pass up? Absolutely not! The internet has plenty of potentials to make you a living, you just need to take advantage of that potential.

No Money? No Problem

Consider yourself starting a brick and mortar business. Such a business would mean serious start-up investment, personal attention, taxes, record keeping, etc. etc. Not everyone can and are fit to start a local business. The main problem many people face is getting their hands on the startup funding. You can also depend on loans from banks, but how confident are you of your business start-up?

But when it comes to the internet, the scenario is completely different. One business you need little or no investment is an online business. There will be costs related to web hosting and such if you plan to go the professional route, but there are opportunities to start-up free as well.

But going back to my point, the internet business model is the perfect method for making some quick cash with the minimum investment of money.

The Learning Curve is there

If you are the kind of person always looking out to learn some new things, then the internet business is the right kind of business for you. With that attitude, you will make money for sure and I am 100% confident in that. When I started out I had a lot of confidence that I can win and I took the time to learn the facts even though it occurred to me pretty late.

Making money Online from the net is something which will include a learning curve. You will come across a lot of opportunities and each of these opportunities will spawn another opportunity. I’ve learned many things, and even like to think my knowledge in topics such as search engine optimization and internet marketing, in general, has increased.

Those are two topics that I was passionate about, wanted to learn about, and just did. All because I wanted to.

It takes a bit of time to get you off the ground and so patience is absolutely necessary. There is no shortcut to success, and definitely no short route to making money from the internet either.

You are Your Own Boss

This is my favorite part. Making money online does have its merits like having no one one to answer to but yourself. No fixed work hours, complete freedom to implement your ideas, the ability to decide what business to do, and I can just go on and on.

These are all particularly helpful when it comes to making money online a side business. Given that you have total control over what lies ahead does not mean that you have the entire world to yourself. There are limitations such as:

  1. You choose to be lazy
  2.  get stuck at some point in time
  3.  give up too soon

These are only some of the factors and hence you need to have a mentor who can guide you. I will touch on this topic soon enough, but for the time being, realize that with every opportunity there arises a threat.

Make Money While You Sleep

This is not a scam heading, but a reality. The one advantage people value most in internet Network marketing and making money online is the ability to rake in money even when you sleep.

This happens according to how wide your audience is, and how well your blog targets the readers and gets them to spend money (which makes you money). That’s like having your local business open 24/7. You may have an e-commerce store and people can buy a product at any time and from any place in the world.

That is like having outlets in each corner of the world; each corner of everyone’s house! If you are too serious into making money online then you can add customer care executives to whom your clients can converse effectively. It will be much cheaper and efficient than having 20 sales representatives out there.

Do Multiple Promotions

You can choose to promote multiple products and earn money online via various income streams. There is no need to be limited to a single product or a range of related products.

Unlike local start-up businesses you have limits to which you can promote something. If you have a pet store it would be pretty misleading if someone walked in to find you selling bed sheets. So you would need another store to promote that product.

On the internet, you either rack up an e-commerce store with everything or just start different websites to promote different products. That is how easy it is. But mind you that the start is easy, it’s what happens after that’s tricky. You need to commit yourself to making money online just like you commit to your local business.

What is the Future Like?

The future is looking bright and no time is too late to start. Start now and do not wait. Here is what Shoemoney, one of the famous bloggers I respect has to say about the future of marketing

  • Internet traffic is expected to double over the next five years
  • 60% of this traffic will be made of consumers (That’s 340 million people!!!)
  • Over 80% of the consumers do at least some shopping (WOW!!!)

So do you want to just wait or jump-start ahead of the people who wait to see others make money from the internet? Start an online business and become your own boss NOW.
