How easy is it to make money? (MY ANSWER)

27 replies
Maybe not too easy. But certainly doable and success would be quite predictable.

There's skills and then constant work and dedication.
If you can keep working on one project and believing in it and going along the dream, and not get distracted, you can make money.

Just the fact that you make the effort will push you further down the road. And once you get far enough, you'll start making money. Never listen to the "easy money", "overnight success" stories. Those guys have usually had many failures and much "experience" before hitting a home-run.

Take your time, do your work, you'll get there. Keep trying, testing, experimenting, exploring. Discussing, sharing, pushing, pulling.

If you don't know what to do. Learn from one school of thought and keep with it. Stop jumping ship every time it gets difficult. Overcoming the difficult parts is what it takes to finally be successful.

    Great Post. Can't agree more!

    Jumping around or chasing the new object is probably the most common mistake

    Making money is simple...not easy.

    It all comes down to three systems...(In order of importance)

    1) Accurate Thinking - Belief - Right Action

    2) Market - Message - Timing

    3) Traffic - Conversions - Maximizing Back End

    That's it! The only three systems needed to make money on or off line.

      I totally agree. Most people think that there are quick and easy ways to make money. Then, they will start ranting once the formulas that they found did not work for them when, in fact, they haven't done their part yet. The process is simple but your efforts will still and will always be the thing that will determine the results.

    Excellent post.

    It is true that just following proven methods and putting consistent work will yield you results if you keep at it.

    For example -- if you did nothing but work every day to build your email list in a profitable niche the next 6 months, you could easily be making 100-200 dollar days by then.

    The reason people fail so often in this industry is they want everything done fast, done easy, and to get paid NOW.

    By simply working every day you set yourself apart from 97% of people who are online, and have a higher chance of succeeding. When i say work, I don't mean reading forums, watching videos, and browsing Facebook... but actually writing articles, connecting with people, and Spending money on targeted traffic.

    You have to learn many things until you will manage to make money in a regular basis, and everything is hard. You have to be a hero.

    It’s hard to be a hero, but it’s nice to be one when you manage to get there.

    Making money online becomes easy once you have a system in place. You need a system for building your lists, you need a system for driving traffic, you need a system to better organize your time etc.

    I've been marketing online for years and up until recently I've been part of a large online company, having systems in place is the difference between owning a real online business or simply having something extra to work on in your spare time.

    Just like what I always tell other people, it is not really the formula that can make someone rich. It is still the hardwork that they put to it.The ideas are just a guide. If we just all rely on what our minds can do for us without even doing the action, all of us would already be rich by now.

    One thing i have noticed is that nobody gives an average time frame. I have heard at least from my research and speaking with other, the least amount of time on average to make money online is about 3 months. Some faster depending if you have good software to help you with research etcc and the market your touching hasn't been penetrated in whatever way your developing.

    I am actually working on another niche market right and expanding it. It amazes me how much people really over look. Newbies, expect to spend about 3 months on working on a project before you start seeing income, those 3 months will be your template of knowledge which you will be able to use on other projects, without this template, you will be confused and your progression will be very slow.


    Oh yeah and their is education too, spend 1 month taking 1 course and don't blast through, your project should essentially be entirely based on that one course and articles and research relevant to the project model and that 1 course you have chosen to develop on.

      Certainly. If in three months, you still see no progress in the business with the strategy that you are using, you already need to evaluate the things that you do. In fact, evaluation should be something that you regularly do. Your efforts and the resources that you have will determine what will happen within your first three months.

    Making money can be easy if you know how to make it easy. You can subscribe to the strategies of any Internet marketing mentor out there but if you do not know how to use his ideas and you do not have enough resources, you can never really succeed that easily. However, if you're already born rich, that is a different story.

    The "how to" is not the most important.
    Neither is focus, and motivation.

    The most important thing needed, is the "why"

    Unfortunately, most people's reason for making money, is to...well...make money. Not a good enough reason. If your "why" is not strong. You'll lose motivation. You'll get distracted and lose focus.

    Find your reason "why," and you'll pass through the impassable.

    Take note of what you're doing every single day online. Monitor where your time is being spent by writing down everything. After a week or so doing this, you'll see clearly why you're not succeeding or gaining momentum.

    Fat people, when given the task to monitor what they eat over a certain time period, will find that they eat a hell of a lot more than they think they did. We all have blind spots. Monitor where your time is being spent, and I guarantee you'll start cutting out the crap and start making great strides in the right direction.

    The 80/20 rule: Right now, 80% of your actions are bringing 20% of your results. Find out what 20% of your daily tasks bring you the best results, and then just focus on those.

    If you want to make more money. Simply raise your prices by 10% - 20%

    People don't cheap out in life. People don't buy the cheapest cars, clothes, food, phones, etc unless it's absolutely necessary. Raise your prices today and you'll make more money today.

    If you're just starting out: Pick one strategy.

    If you would just write down 2 - 3 tasks to focus on each day, and actually get them done, without fail, you'll see massive increases in your business. But, you first need to find out where your time is being wasted.

    You have to maximize your resources and squeeze your brains out to come up with great strategies and earn your way up. You need to keep your eye on the prize. That is what will keep you going. If you are not motivated and you do not have enough reasons to make money online, your impatience will just eat you up and you will end up just losing the time, money and effort that you have invested.

      Indeed. With all the distractions that you can get, from the competition, the lack of resources to the frustration, you will never really find it easy to succeed if you will get easily swayed. Being a newbie in the business is not easy, but with great motivations and concentration, you will eventually find your way out.

  • Making a few bucks here and there is as easy as making a cup of tea.

    The hardest part is, to make a living. Not everyone can do that. It requires dedication and hard work.

      Right. If you are looking for a source of money that is stable, online money making can be your solution to that. It really depends upon how much you put to it. If your dedication and hard work is consistent, you can be a full-time online money maker for as long as you want.

  • Staying focused and picking an avenue to go down is extremely important. I have had great success in the expired domains field and I think its an easy field to make money in if you know what you are doing. There are tons of ways to make money on the internet but like I said you HAVE to pick an avenue and explore that option until you feel its either a bust or boom.
