Want to know the secrets to making money online? Want to know which websites pay the most? Want to know how you can do absolutely nothing while raking in millions of dollars a day? Read on to learn the truth.
I lied to you. I’m telling you right here at the front, so that if you’re truly wanting to read about easy ways to make money while sitting on your butt at home, this is not the article for you.
Why would I do such a thing? Isn’t it cruel? Isn’t it deceptive?
Yes. But guess what? It’s no more, and probably less, deceptive than all the articles you will find while searching for easy ways to make money.
The truth is, there are NO easy ways to make money. Okay? You need to get that through your head. If you’re hoping you can just sit back, do a little something for 10 or 15 minutes a day while the cash rolls into your bank account, you are fooling yourself. All those online sites telling you all the different ways to make easy money are lying to you.
Do I need to say it again?
Is that enough? Do I need to go on? Has it gotten through your thick skull yet?
I don’t care what claims other sites make, there is no easy way to make money. Forget all the content publishing sites, the writing sites, the real estate sites, the click-an-ad sites, the get-paid-to-review sites, the get-paid-to-watch-a-video sites, even the watch-porn-for-money sites. It is all bull. ALL OF IT.
Can you use these sites to make any money? Any amount? Yes, of course, but it will likely be only pennies. Which might be good enough for some folks who live in very poor regions (and I truly feel sorry for them), but for most of us, that’s not enough.
Has it penetrated your skull yet?
I hope so.
Because now I have another truth for you. You can make money online.
What? Huh? But … but … you just said …
I know what I just said, and it wasn’t a lie. I said you cannot make easy money online. The operative word there being easy.
Making money online is not easy. It takes time. It takes work. And yes, it even takes some education and some talent. That education might not come from some university somewhere, but you can learn a lot from studying different sites online and figuring out how to make money. The talent part is somewhat up to you, but you have to figure out where your natural talents lie and how you can make money using those talents.
No matter what anyone tells you, forget dreams of sitting back and doing nothing while the cash comes in. Forget that. And I mean NOW!
Once you have gotten past that and realize you are actually going to have to work, you have crossed the biggest boundary that keeps many people from making money online. Far too many people are sitting in front of keyboards as we speak, twittering away or spamming or whatever other waste of time their doing, but you know what? They’re not making money. Why? Because they believe all that garbage about getting rich by doing nothing.
Whatever you do online to make money, first you have to treat it like a business, and then you have to treat it like a job. You have to put in eight or more hours a day. You have to keep up with it just about every day. You have to learn your craft, you have to learn your skills, and you have to learn the business end of things.
Now, if you’re just hanging out online to make a few extra dollars here and there, that’s fine. Nothing wrong with that. But if you’re honestly trying to make a career from somehow working online, you have to be brutally honest with yourself, regardless of whatever it is you’re doing.
You also have to learn what actions and sites are a waste of your time and which actions and sites are not a waste of your time. Most of these get-rich-quick sites are a waste of your time. No, let me correct that. ALL of the get-rich-quick sites are a waste of your time. Avoid them. If you’re already a member, delete your account and don’t go back.
Then start doing some research. Check into some professional bloggers. Find out about professional online artists. Look around at some sites that pay writers (I’ll suggest Amazon’s KDP site for those who can put together e-books). Whatever. Learn the business of whatever it is you want to do.
Because that’s the only way you’re going to make any real money online. NOT by wasting your time with foolishness.
P.S. One last point: Don’t forget to diversify the sites you use and your own talents. Your best bet is to have several different funding streams coming your way. This means using more than one site for your earnings, and it might also mean having to do more than one type of work. Don’t make the mistake of depending upon one source and one talent for all your income.
