Do You Want To Know The "Secret" To Making Money Online?

36 replies
I know many people and especially newbies are always trying to learn the "secret" method to making lots of money online.

The truth is there is no "secret".

The secret to making huge amounts of money online is Hard Work. Period.

Yes, reading and learning is great. Discovering new methods is awesome.

But the key to really making money online is to take Massive Action and learn by trial and error.

Really try to learn to become a better writer, marketer, thinker, etc.

The secret to becoming wealthy starts with your mindset and trying to "shortcut" your way to success is the wrong attitude to have.

HARD WORK. That is the "secret" to making money online.

  • I noticed that people don't like to do hard work, they all say that they don't mind working but when it comes to doing it even if it's outsourcing they find reason why it can't get done. It's something no one want to talk about.

    "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation."
    - Henry David Thoreau

    The people who don't motivate themselves to work are the ones who haven't found a compelling reason to get to work. They don't have a BIG WHY. They don't have something to strive for that they will achieve at all costs. Without that, a person does indeed lead a life of quiet desperation.

    Hard work does not guarantee success online. It is taking the right actions and working with the right programs and mentor that makes a huge difference. It takes persistence and figuring out what works and what doesn't.

      You are absolutely right, Hard work is not always key when we talk to earn online money.

    - there are things you want to do, things you're interested in
    - and then there are things that others do that make money, and seem easier than your thing
    The secret is to find the balance between doing what you want to do vs doing what's easy.

      This. As you Work Hard, you will also begin to work much more smarter as well. But the most important thing for most newbies to do is to just pick only one method and take action. Ask questions when they get stuck and continue to learn and implement.

    Actually, I think the secret to making money online is differentiation. You need to stand out from the crowd; people admire novelty and will reward you monetarily if anything just for being the first and having the guts to do it. Problem is, MMO is oversaturated and thus hard to stand out, but if you manage to do it, you'll be making bank.

    I think that's the only secret, and it's not much of a secret, just a reality that people don't want to accept (it's much easier being brainwashed by a guru that following his cookie-cutter program will make you money).

    Trying to work hard and smart at getting 3000 friends on fb according to the pdf, you find that most gigs on fiverr fail to deliver on the $5 gigs and you loose on a couple of orders after the promise of a refund after a month. If you choose to use a generator like acute and get your addresses from gmail or some other email client fb will first warn you and then ban you. Is there any one here who has succeeded in making 3000 high value'friends' on fb since 2012? How did you do it?

    That is the secret to making money anywhere. No truer words were ever spoken.

    I agree with the idea about mindset. To me it's about having a goal, and breaking it down so that you can achieve that goal. Then having the motivation and drive to carry it out. Of course when put that way, most goals will require work.

    It is also human nature to find yet easier ways to do things, and pressing a button once seems the easiest, no matter how stupid it actually is. This process of doing things smarter / faster is the basis for evolution.

    So in other words going to war with no battle plan. that's nuts. A guy just posted on here that he's been spinning his wheels working 8 hrs a day for 2 years now and hasn't made hardly anything. It's not just hard work. You need a very strategic and scientific methodology.

      I agree with that. You need to learn how to work both hard and smart. But what I tend to notice especially among newbies, is that many of them give up way too easily and don't put in nearly enough effort in order to become successful.
