Living in an information age has put so many opportunities before us. Through the use of computers, we can “travel” around the world in seconds and have a feel of what’s trending—computers have certainly played a critical role in our lives.
The influence of the internet in our lives cannot be underestimated. Every day at work, school, or even at home, we leverage its benefits to better our lives—we shop online, conduct research, etc. The internet has become a vital tool in our hands, and the world is let to see the full potential when it finally occurs. If you decide to do without it, you may have a serious problem—it might shatter the chain of events in your live.
No Better time to make money than Now
The explosion in the use of the mobile phones has gained numbers these past few years. And who does not have them? The mobile phones, tablets, or smartwatches are almost in every home and have made life easy for us all.
Smart marketers will always monetize anything that we can’t do without. As we continue to remain attached to these things, monetization will rear its head.
Making money online has always been one of your goals; you’ve searched endlessly on the internet for ways to go about it, and that is why you’re here. Perhaps, you have even lost hope.
“How to make money online” is a constantly searched for word every day, and a sizeable chunk of people seek answers to it, get frustrated even before they open two to three pages on the internet—they’ve have been exploited over and over and are tired of seeing rehashed content.
The chunk of information out there can derail anyone. To even think that one can access information on the go without restrictions makes it easy to fall into the wrong hands. The level playing field online is good though, but the type of information you consume is what matters.
In time past, starting a building requires a lot; you’ll have to put in place so many things like paying for a physical structure, hiring personnel to run the business, equipping the site, learning the skills, and before you know it, you have spent so much money. That is a typical brick and mortar setup.
In this day and age, setting up an online business is an easy feat—even making money some ways.
Unbundling the Myth
Don’t get it twisted! Making money online is not as easy as it seems. You’ll have to put in the necessary work to get a result. You must put in the required time and learn the right skill. The good thing is that the benefits far outweigh the traditional business model where you have to consider overheads—online; it’s almost non-existent. Another thing is that the foundation of the business may likely be part of your life, and that makes it even better.
That is why the potential to make money online is attractive for so many people. But danger looms large, and a lot of people have taken advantage of that for so many years, and it still holds sway in this present day.
We have our laptops to ourselves, and we can access information using the internet. As I said, these tools play a critical role in our lives. It is easy to think money “flows” on the internet purported by some “gurus” out there. But that is not the case. It is not a walk in the park. People would instead paint it so good like you’d not have to lift a finger to make money—and exploit a lot of people in the process.
Now here’s the shocker, and I know so many “gurus” will not tell you.
It will reveal the truth and debunk all the lies they’ve told you. And I will make it clear now:
Getting rich without putting in the necessary work is a fallacy—it does not exist!
Well, you may say, but some people are in that space, and it’s working for them. I don’t doubt it. Some people may get lucky, and it may be working for them. However, getting rich overnight doesn’t for me, and I’m quite sure it doesn’t for so many people too—doing little or nothing and expecting thousands of dollar is a no-no for me.
If you’re not ready to put in the work, you’ll not go far in the online space.
Don’t get me wrong, who does not wish to do so little and make more? A lot of people hope they could be in that space, including me. And that is where some unscrupulous element will want to come in and exploit others. They will go the extra mile to achieve their goal—deceive people to make money.
Here is what I want you to know:
Empty promises take you nowhere. If you exploit people to make ends meet, it speaks volumes about your morals and kind of person you are. I don’t subscribe to it, and I don’t want you to fall prey and join the league of those that have been deceived or exploited.
Because the internet is an open marketplace, it has given way to materials that makes it easy to swindle people; making money online has been romanticized to lure the naïve. Some people now frown upon the phrase “make money online”—it’s now riddled with skepticism and disgust.
Here is the myth out there:
Some people don’t believe making money online is real, so they go above and beyond to peddle myths. Even, they think that people doing it are scammers and are achieving it through illegitimate means.
People can say anything, but the truth stands:
When you make an assertion, you should at least back it up with facts. Derailing the public will do you no good. It is wrong to go that route. If you don’t know what works, then let others who do teach you.
The simple truth is you can make money as an affiliate legitimately online—many folks are doing it, by the minute, and daily too. The internet has been a tool to make this possible. Believe it or not, it works!
Let’s narrow it down so you can make sense of it all. Check out this list:
The list could go on and on. What readily comes to mind with the names on the list? Well, let me help you—they’re online businesses, and they offer exclusive products and services.
Can you consider them to be a scam? Hell no! With the influence they have on people and the testimonies out there; you can’t say they don’t make money. If you continue peddling information with no facts, then I think you don’t deserve being given attention —some people will, anyways.
The truth is businesses and individuals are making a killing online—and legitimately too.
Don’t be Deceived!
With regards to what has been said earlier, it is easy for people to fall prey to some of these unfounded truths. This practice is undeserving as some unscrupulous elements will stop at nothing to exploit you. They want you to fall into the trap.
So what then is the trap?
The get rich syndrome mentality! They want to instill in you a “system” that consistently put money in your pocket with little or no effort.
Now hear this: Having a system in your business is perfect—nothing is wrong with that. A working system will consistently put money on the table for you.
However, there’s a problem with a “system” that makes you believe you’ll do little or nothing to make money. A system that is automatic; you only need to key into it, and boom, money starts “flowing.”
