#1: Is it possible to make: $10, $50, $100 ..... $1000 a day online? Answer: Yes it is. I know from first hand experience that it is possible to make a lot of money online. In the 4 years since I stopped freelancing I have grossed just under 3 million dollars online, Ill let someone else figure out what that is a day, and I know several people doing much, much more than I.
#2: Is this all just a big scam? Answer: No its not. There are for sure scammers, there are scammers in any industry. You would not call the car business a scam because you got screwed by some shady dealership. A lot of people make a lot of money online.
#3: What is the secret trick that these people know that I don't? Answer: This question takes a lot of forms, most common people phrase it like this "If you had to start all over .... " .. but no matter what the question is always the same thing. Whats the secret? Well once and for all. THERE IS NONE! Unless you count hard work, dedication, having a plan of action etc.
#4: Will XYZ make me money? NO it wont. Nothing will make you money, you have to do it on your own. Software, training, etc are all just tools. A hammer will never build me a house. I actually have to swing it.
#5: Do I need XYZ? Answer: No. You dont need anything. Like really you dont need anything. A website would help, but you could also use a Facebook group. A Facebook group can be used .. but so can a fan page. You can make money with a fan page .. but you also can with a website .. there are a million roads to Florida and there are a million paths to online success. The important point is that you pick a frigging path and stick with it.
#6: I have tried 9674 things over the last 293 years. What am I doing wrong? Answer: There are a couple of answers that could apply here. This just might not be for you, contrary to what the 'gurus' would tell you running an online business is NOT for everyone. Or you might be bouncing around to much. Or you might just be spending to much time watching cat videos on YouTube. Who knows? Look to yourself and answer this one honestly for yourself.
#7: I have no money right now and am desperate, what can I do? Answer: Get a job. Like really, get a job. If you have a marketable skill this can be working on Fiverr or on Elance or whatever, but petes sake if your desperate for money, you need to work, save some cash, then worry about starting an online business (or any business) when you at least have some security.
Ok thats all for now. If I think of some more common ones Ill do an update (probably not actually) .. but one thing I want people to really understand is that:
A) Working online is NOT some way to get rich quick.
B) Working online takes a LOT of effort and hard work. Only you can answer if you are willing to put in that effort and hard work, largely without reward for quite a while. in order to get a payout later (answer honestly)
C) There is no trick, like really there is none
D) If your desperate, IM is not going to save you (see A)
E) While software / training are tools that can make things easier, you dont need them, in fact you dont need anything (besides a good work ethic and motivation)
Hope this post helps at least one person somehow.
