There are authors out there declaring you can become a thousand richer in a few hours and my statements in this post will not be congruent with their promises.
But then again, the truth has some sting to it.
How can I dare say this. Some of you may ask. Let me get you in on what I've done for one month.
I made a challange to myself to make money in 30 days in the internet.
There are several conditions.
1. I won't use credit cards - coz I don't have one
2. I will only use free hosting and free sub-domain names - since I can't afford to buy them.
These are my motivation for making myself a challenge:
1. I'm presently out of work.
2. I'm running out of cash.
3. I have tons of bills to pay.
And these are my limitations:
1. I'm here in asia, Philippines in particular.
2. I worked for 4 hours or more in the internet everyday for 30 days.
3. I have my own computer and DSL connection.
Let me summarize what happened.
in 30 days I was able to gather a lot of information on the different systems of earning in the internet, namely:
2. Affiliate marketing
3. Data entry/Surveys
4. Website flipping
5. Ebooks marketing
6. Freelance job
This is what I learned:
In takes a while for your adsense account to generate cash. You must have a good traffic to your site to gain some nice cash from adsense.
This does not come overnight. You can create as much blog as you want but you must take the necessary time and effort to properly write articles and promote the site. Which will also take time.
You can submit your site to bookmarking sites, yet you still have to sign up. Which will definitely take up more that two days, even up to a week just to sign up into about 45 of the biggest bookmarking sites.
Further, you can submit your articles to ezinearticles and other directories like goarticles but that will still take a day or two. Nothing "Instant" baby.
All this time, traffic is still small. Adsense, NADA!
This is very promising, imagine being able to earn from other peoples products. Some even give very high commissions. Only when I applied in clickbank, they don't offer in my country. :-( Same goes for a lot of the paid surveys site. Also you can't do affiliate marketing in one day from a newbie standpoint.
This will involve getting into the adwords program and advertising, as a newbie it would probably take a week of two before the program starts earning!
The hottest, it promises to make you big bucks. Imagine selling your site for a thousand, two, three of even half a million. Although for all of the methods and system of making money this is the most time consuming and can't be done in a day if you're flat broke like me! :-)
If you have several hundreds of dollars in reserve it may be possible to buy a website now (www.sitepoint.com) and sell it after two to three weeks for a higher profit margin. But then again that still took some time and money.
You may do this as an affiliate or as an author yourself. As an author, forget about making money in a week unless of course if you are a copycat. Writing ebook takes time and talent. And cash to start marketing.
Im just wondering how the old folks do it, like "Robert Allen" or others who said they were able to make it work within hours just using a pc and internet. Any input on this will do..
I have a pc and internet and yet I have been killing myself for a month in hard work and yet I can't see the light! :-) or maybe again those were just good sales copies I've read.
Go to elance.com or getafreelancer.com and you will definitely find jobs which pays in dollars.
Although you must bid and wait. After that comes the work, and then the pay. Which is still about a a week, two weeks or month or two. Still no easy way baby!
Now, why is there soo much hype in making instant money in the internet?
The truth is that instant money goes to those who have already establish their niche or system of earning! Imagine once you buy an ebook, at that very moment money is being made in an instant, although it doesn't go to you. It goes the other way.
Therefore, the truth! as a newbie there is no instant way to make money in an hour, in a day or two. A week maybe if you have a credit card.
As a newbie, it all boils down to this, due diligence and patience. Proper motivation and equivalent action! Sites like these will be a great help but then again if you are worried about money to buy your food tonight or some cash to pay your bills tomorrow the internet can't give it to you. That's not how the way things work.
If you know an easy way to earn right now! please share it with us.
I mean easy way to earn for us ehh! not earn from us :-)
