Is There Money To Be Made On The Internet?

Is there money to be made on the internet?

If you are overwhelmed and wondering if it really is possible to make money on the internet by network marketing? The following post is my brief answer to this question.

Yes. There is money to be made online, but it takes a lot of hard work and dedication.  Any program you join, you have to either recruit others and/or make sales. Both of those require learning, developing skill sets,  and work. It took me years to learn. Lead generation is one part of the equation, but conversion, or turning leads into sales is the most challenging part. I really understand the overwhelm that beginners have. I’ve been there. The longer you research and make mistakes, the more you recognize what really has the possibility to create an income or not.

Establishing a sustainable online business takes money too, and sometimes a lot of it!  I finally found the program that has what I was looking for, but I spent thousands of dollars trying to find the right one. I was able to quit my job last year because I found a primary program along with a combination of  systems that work. Once I figured out the pattern I needed to generate money, I continue the “rinse and repeat” routine. I prefer affiliate marketing, but it is important to choose one that is worth your marketing efforts. There are so many to pick, so the quality of the program and whether you implement or not is the key. Ultimately, an affiliate program with residual income is ideal and gives you the opportunity to build a sustainable long term business.

When anybody gets online with the intention of making money, one of the common beliefs is that you must create your own product to do so. Creating your own products is the best way if you can promote and distribute it in mass numbers and you build an army of affiliates. That is exactly what the top earners do. Generally, their influence spans to hundreds of followers, which they earned. In other words, they paid their dues. You may not have the influence as you are working your way up, but using leverage in the meantime is the best route to take. Maybe you need to generate money to build first, so one way is through affiliate marketing and using the magic of leverage. It’s essential to promote programs with a higher per cent commission, take action, and invest in paid advertising. My preferred method of paid advertising is solo ads for many reasons which is a topic in itself.

The sad news is there is no secret. There is no magic bullet. There is no get rich quick programs. Revenue share and/or cycler programs are a great example of getting involved with something that ultimately will become a total waste of time and money. Here is one definition of cycler programs: Money Doublers, Single-Line Matrix & Multiple-Level Matrix Programs, and Randomizers. Most programs of this type have a commission system based on a specified percentage of the member’s deposit or from recruiting downline members, which is usually paid out at the time a matrix is filled or a line cycles. My experience is “Buyer Beware.”  I admit I dabbled in a few, and my experience warns you to be careful.  I resist promoting any of those types of programs. There are some people who have made money with them, but I am not one. A majority of players usually lose or they cannot withdraw or have access to any money generated. For those of you who like to gamble and play, then it’s up to you, but I’ve been burned. If it sounds too good to be true, then it usually isn’t.

I really want to help people duplicate what I’ve done, but it is sometimes difficult because everyone is in a different situation. I am an internet marketer/entrepreneur that loves what I do. It took me a long time and I encountered many struggles and challenges to make it, but tenacity was on my side. Many people don’t have the money to invest, and sadly they will continue to just spin their wheels.  Many people don’t have the mindset needed for abundance. The first step is defining what abundance means to you, then set your goals to achieve them. Then you have to work very hard to shatter outdated, old useless beliefs which may be holding you back.  Your success will depend upon your mindset and whether you are ready to receive.

I get frustrated because people want to make money so desperately and they sign up for programs, but then do not do one thing to move it forward and they either won’t or can’t invest in advertising. The same thing goes for offline businesses. Could you imagine any offline business starting out that could survive without advertising?

We are bombarded daily with emails promising quick and easy money. Money will pop into your life without doing anything. Nothing can be further than the truth! Some offers are good and will work if you engage and work it with focus and dedication. EVERY program requires effort. They can and will work if approached with a “do whatever it takes to work attitude.” However, some programs are better than others.

My intent to answer this question Is There Money To Be Made On The Internet? is not to promote any particular program or tool or method. I promote quality programs which work for me and I believe can work for others. I am happy to share what I do if you contact me personally.
