Poor And Want To Start An Internet Business? Get A Job.

by Alex Antoniazzi 61 replies
One of the most common questions I get asked by the people is

"I don't have anymore money to pay you, how should I get my business started?"

Here is the answer.

Go get a job, save as much of your paycheck each month as you possibly can, and then when you have the money it takes to create an online business the RIGHT way, THEN start it.

You will never get rich buying a $5 WSO that promises to teach you a secret method that will make you a millionaire.

It ain't going to happen.

You have to spend money to make money, bottom line.

Whether that is in start up costs for web developer, copywriting, etc or traffic like pay per click ads or SEO, YOU HAVE TO SPEND MONEY!

And if you don't have the money to spend, then you can't start an internet business.

Stop trying to look for the cheap and easy way to do things.

Not only will it not actually get you any results, it will just be a flat out waste of your time and effort.

If you don't have money to invest in QUALITY services, don't invest at all.

Wait until you can afford it, then go for it.

    I agree - you have to invest money and time to make an online business succeed. Trying to escape reality will only make you poorer.

    You assume your way is the only way (RIGHT way).

    I definitely agree

    You need some seed capital to get started and to pay for some of the necessary tools, some of which have monthly costs such as hosting, autoresponder, domain registrations which have a yearly cost.

    If you decide to do any paid advertising which can fast track your traffic generation, then that will eat up a chunk of you capital. But of course it can bring in faster cash generation if you have a good funnel setup.

    Freelancing on sites like Fiverr, Upwork, and any of the plethora of freelancing sites can be one way to generate some cash.

    Sure you can do free traffic generation, do your own web development, your own SEO, copywriting, content creation, etc. but is that the best use of your time.

    Are you willing to wait for the free traffic, SEO, to learn effective copywriting, spend hours on content creation, and other activities that you can learn & do yourself?

    I would also say that you need to stay focused and laser in on one or two business models and don't get caught up in everything that you could do.

    I heard a great mentor recently say that the person who chases two rabbits catches neither.

    When you look at how much it costs to start any brick & mortar business and any chain like McDonalds, then the few hundred that it takes to start a legitimate IM biz is peanuts.

    Finally I would suggest to save some cash for coaching.

    Everyone who I have seen that is successful in any type of online business has had coaching, and most didn't become successful UNTIL they got coaching from a coach.

    My mentor said this and it is very true:

    It takes money to make money.

    You have to invest money into your business if you want to make it work.

    If you don't want to risk this money, online business may not be for you.

    It's of course, everything has its cost. So choose the best way for yourself.

    Actually you can buy $5 WSO - but the difference would be to apply what you learned and then invest some money to get the traffic.

    It is interesting how people want to make money online without investing or without risking some money. The thing is that a business is a business, online or offline and there is always risk involved.
    One should think how much does it cost to create online business comparing to the cost of creating regular offline business (there are costs of renting an office, maybe some employees, all the permits.. etc).
    So act and posture yourself like you are a businessman solving some problem for others. If your target is to be an affiliate of some product. Get a domain, write a blog around the product that will represent added value for someone who is looking for a solution. Build strong fundation and only then reward from your buyers will come.
    All the courses are giving this message between the lines.
    I hope that helps someone.

    As a new person just trying this out, i fully agree. Education first, then make sure you have the money to work on it.
