Most popular Warrior Forum thread is what to do if you are desperate.
So, let's talk about making money vs building a business.
It begins with a transaction, an exchange of agreed upon value. Put your TV out front with a for sale sign on it, or run an ad on craigslist for your TV. If it is a decent model with a good price, it will sell within hours, and you have some quick cash. You've made A transaction.
An IM business would normally have (with exceptions) many transactions, for example an eBay store such as goodasnewelectronics (NO affiliation, just an example) which has had nearly 70,000 eBay transactions.
Quick cash = an exchange of value, your TV for cash today.
Can you make money with one off transactions? Of course you can, but the problem often is finding the 'stuff' people want to buy or barter for.
FASTEST way to money is to sell something you already have, get rid of it at a low price and get quick cash. But if you are desperate, the cash goes quickly, you already owe it to someone else before you even get it.
But, the Internet gives you ample opportunity to rinse and repeat the process by buying and selling stuff if you want too. You could sell your TV for 100 dollars, or you could sell your car for several thousand.
So Internet Marketing could be a one off transaction model. Good for quick cash perhaps, but not so good for long term strategy...which is where a business becomes a better way to go.
A business will make either MORE transactions than the Buy-Sell model or it will make BIGGER dollar transactions, but at it's core,
there has to be an agreed upon exchange of VALUE.
A well thought out NEW business, like many of you want to start might begin with
a MARKET. Or a product/service. Arguments over which is better are irrelevant to you, because the WF has many success stories from both methods.
A group of people who BUY stuff is a good place to start
you can create or acquire a product/service which matches what they are buying now.
A product can be a good place to start if there is a DEMAND or one can be created, as in a Fad or novelty item.
You can make money without having a business, but one truth might be you will work harder over time UNLESS you have higher dollar transactions...
OR you can take the time and maybe money to build a business which could be better path for you to take.
So, what do you want to do in 2016?
Build a business?
Just make some Dang Money?
PS. Or maybe both?
