If the economy has done one thing with incredible efficiency its force people to rethink how they do things, especially how they generate their main income. The economy slump wasn’t just about high prices; it cost many people their jobs and forced them to find new ways to generate an income in a slow job market.
The economy also ushered in the online job market and businesses as people started to realize the power of this not so new medium. Many used the internet for research and anything but making money, but now are seeing past the looking glass into the real potential of this interconnected web of intelligence, skill sets, platforms, and the very evolution of the web itself.
As the demand was there more infrastructures were built upon the basic internet until there were so many resources, anyone could generate money if they just knew what to do. The problem, however, is that a lot of snake oil salesmen come out of the woodworks to sell these newbie’s on concepts that were misleading advertising in the early web concepts- things like get rich quick schemes, the web being a shortcut to wealth with no work just information, and tings of that nature.
If you do put in the work and learn the landscape you can develop some powerful ways to generate money. This doesn’t mean it’s going to be a cake walk at first- often at first it’s the most tedious, but no more tedious than going to a job you hate or worrying about where your next paycheck will come from. You have to enter this like you did your last or current job. Discipline yourself to have patience and to learn by doing.
Learn to write copy, then learn how to monetize that copy, but learn both of those things completely. Take 6 months to a year to just tune up your writing skill set, but simultaneously you can interweave learning about monetization. Don’t worry about making money- worry about writing content, building a page, and how to basically monetize it. At first don’t try to earn money but rather perfect the craft of building a page that has the potential of earning. When it’s perfect build another and keep doing that. Keep returning to the first to see how it can be tweaked for better performance.
The formula for making money online is simple, but perfecting the skill set will be work, yet that work will give you an ROI in time that far supersedes the work you put in now. Money follows experience, resources, and contacts. If you learn the aforementioned concepts and get extremely proficient with them in about a years time (of putting in the work) the rest will unfold in front of your eyes, you will even be able to tell who the scam courses are, whose being honest and whose trying to trick you out of your money.
Taking shortcuts you haven’t earned yet is like the breadcrumbs to where Hansel and Gretel ended up, in a witch’s oven. Had the children in that children’s story had more experience they’d of never walked into the witches house, and as an internet marketer who actually put in the work to build awareness not money (at first), you won’t be easily duped or tricked.
