Do you really need to learn how to make money online? I’ve read about Get-Rich-Quick schemes, so why in the world should I slow down my money making effort? The word ‘learning’ itself indicates hard work, time spent away from your usual day activities, lesser sleep and usually, there is no fun factor to it. Learn how to make money online? Nah!
Did I realize that I had to learn how to make money online? No I did not. At least not when I first started. I chose to make money online quickly. Guess what I did? I bought a Get-Rich-Quick program! Did it feel good knowing that you are on your way to earning big bucks fast? Definitely! Did it work? Unfortunately not! I did not even come close to the vicinity of success. What did you learn from all this? I need to learn how to make money online! Period.
I consider myself lucky that I only bought one get-rich-quick program. Why? Because there are others who fall for one after another. Along the way I did purchase an affiliate program, which to my horror simply ditches you the moment your payment came through. I could not even get the package to work and I could not reach them at all! I cannot begin to tell you how angry and frustrated I was. I paid $97 for nothing! It may not seem like a lot of money to you, but to me it was an expensive mistake. Never came across my mind that I could actually fall victim to a make money online scam. Always thought of myself as a careful person but I guess with scammers getting more intelligent these days, no one is spared. If it’s any comfort at all, to myself at least, I am glad that these mistakes I made happened within a short period of time. It’s better to make a mistake early, realize it early, learn from it and move on before investing too much time and money. Looking at it positively, I ended up learning how to make money online!
On the Internet, there are many tips to learn to make money online, learn how to make money online guides, secret to making money online and the list goes on. No harm reading. You could even pick up some very useful information. There are plenty of ways to learn how to make money online. The difficult part is choosing which suits you best, especially when you are new to Internet Marketing. You can find many techniques to learn how to make money online but what is more important here is to understand the whole process. I am a living example of someone who plunges into Internet Marketing without understanding the process. I thought I have read enough to understand how to make money online. It was only later did I realize that I did not understand enough.
So how crucial is it to learn how to make money online? I say, and I believe many other Internet Marketers will agree, that it is very crucial indeed. Remember this. When you purchase an ebook to learn how to make money online, you are learning about how this particular ‘guru’ made her/his money, her/his way. While it worked well for her/him, it may not work for you. You’ll complain about it for a while and as these products usually come with money-back guarantee, you end up asking for refund. And then what? Next? Bought a few more, spent a few hundred dollars or even thousands, digesting each and every one of these ebooks and then try to deduce what works, what does not, how to start and where to start. You have invested lots of time and money, are you certain that you have made the best deductions on how to make money online? You can confidently answer ‘yes’ if you have made the money online again and again. After all, you are looking for a long-term income and not just some quick unsustainable income. Right?
For those who are just starting out, there are many credible ebooks available to learn how to make money online. Implementing the techniques taught is what I find most newbies are handicapped with. It does not get any easier when you are doing it alone. Some people are naturals. I fall into the category of the majority; people who need help and guidance. I took my first ‘real’ step to learn how to make money online by enrolling in an online ‘university’. Finally, I patted myself on the back for taking that first ‘real’ step. I have chosen to educate myself to learn how to make money online. I am not a millionaire… yet (hey! I’m allowed to dream you know) but I am no longer far from the vicinity of success. I am success!
