Quick Money Or Real Business?

by origin
20 replies
Knowing that the one does not necessarily exclude the other, I was wondering what percentage of warriors are more interested in "making quick bucks" vs learning how to create a long term, sustainable online business.

Who is here for the "quick buck" expecting easy money with no work and who is here for "solid business" training willing to put in the hard work?

    Quick money =/= no work...

    In my case, first quick money (or at least, faster than normally) ==> invest into a real business.

    Working so far very well

    Get a starting budget with some fast 'methods', then invest into something serious like list building, branding etc.

    Makes sense Jan! Generate some capital with the quick methods and invest in the bigger sustainable one.

      For me building a real sustainable business has also resulted in the ability to create quick cash on demand

      I get what you mean though way too many people in here looking to make a quick buck with the least effort possible

      Hence why the shiny objects sell so well

        This is the way I got it as well! What a lot of "shiny object" buyers do not realise is that the actual "quickest" way to make money is to build a real business. Not some "tactic" being sold as a way to get rich quick.

            Yeah I get that a lot of people need that first taste for motivation. Pretty hard to work day and night on something that you are not sure even works

    It depends on circumstances. Someone with some money in the bank would probably go for the "real sustainable business" but if you're desperate you'll probably be more inclined to go for the quick money. Atleast to start with.

    This has me thinking. Does anyone even know the difference? A 'real' business vs quick money? How do you define the two?

    The illusion of "push button" riches is what leads many people to never make anything... jumping from one thing to the next.

    When one takes a legitimate approach at building their business the right way, they will see success.

    Just because a business is online does NOT mean that the approach to getting started should be any different than any other type of business endeavor.

    Thanks,


    Josh

    A long term business is what i seek. I want this to be my retirement income... plus my work liberation income... plus my sexual satisfaction income... plus my time freedom income. So as it is in the beginning (NOW), so it will be in the future (RETIREMENT). Quick money doesn't register in my brain. When i first started, i was looking for some "get out the hood" money. But now my mind has graduated and elevated, and this business has taken me to great heights in my life. I never thought i'd be able to visit Brazil by the time i was 25 years old... but i did.

    I'm thinking long term, instant gratification is a dream killer. Don't feed it.

    Build real business! I agree with you all that is focused on long term success... It's harder to build but that should be our main goal right?

    I may be asking for a lot of information on "the real deal WSO" here, but I am very willing to work hard for my pay. I currently have 20 websites set up and I've been at this for almost 6 months... haven't seen a dime. I'm missing the big picture I guess. My sites are great looking, easily navigated sites, with great affiliate products. I use text links in the content, as well as image links in the sidebar. I have researched niche markets to try and gain the most "buyer traffic", but I think I lack the knowledge to pull major traffic in. I don't have much money for running ads, so I thought organic would kick in... but, not yet! Any advice from anybody? THANKS!

      I think both has its place. Of course thinking long term most would opt for the business. But you have to have quick money to some extent to keep going. Unless you have a job that allows extra income to keep you afloat.

      I don't think quick money is impossible once you get set up, in fact that should be your goal. Now if you're talking about quick riches, that's another animal. But every brick and mortar business expects quick money once their doors open. Right? So, why shouldn't online marketers expect the same?

        When I first started I did some quick things to get me going although some of the "quick things" wasted a lot of time as well so they weren't very profitable.

        I am using a few models that I am excited about right now and am focused on building a solid long term business.

        I drafted a business plan and I highly recommend doing that.

        It has clarified my goals and made the day to day building a lot easier and fruitful.

    I'm all about slow investing with lots of research (which includes experimentation). I have a number of projects I'm involved with on-line and off. None of them would I describe as "quick" or "easy". In fact I can take a 3 year loss and use it as a tax write off (The IRS lets you declare your losses to cover up income), but those losses are truly long term investments.

    I'm building a long-term income, but am not past jumping on quick money opportunities when they present themselves. I then take the quick money and reinvest it into the more stable and sustainable income streams I have.
