If you have been searching for a legitimate way to make money online then you have likely come across many get rich quick schemes as well as a variety of scams and aren’t sure what to believe in terms of expectation.
Online gurus make it seem so easy to make money within a couple of hours and there are many misconceptions that many people have about this subject.
Due to my nearly 6 years in the online industry, I have learned everything from how to build and design a website to driving thousands of visitors to it on a daily basis to earning my first $1000 online in under a year.
As you can see I have a great amount of experience here and I’ll be sharing my experience with you guys today.
In the following post, I’ll be sharing the 5 most common misconceptions about making money online and debunking many myths as well.
There are a good amount of misconceptions about this business model as a whole and I’ll be covering these as well so I encourage you guys to stick around and read this post in its entirety.
If you have ever been interested in learning how to make money online but have been misconstrued about how everything works and what to be on the lookout for then you have come to the right place.
I encourage you to follow along with me and ask any questions you may have for me in the comment section below.
Are you guys ready?
1) Making Money Online Is Fast & Easy
This has got to be 1 of the most common misconceptions about making money online and the #1 reason why most people fail.
Unfortunately, there are many con artists and gurus out there who sell you on the dream of making money but fail to provide you with any tangible training or plan of action to make your first $1 online.
Due to my massive experience in the online world, I can attest to the fact that making money online is in no way fast or easy.
In reality, it’s actually the complete opposite and can take you years to be making anything worth shouting from the rooftops like they claim you will in only a few short days.
2) You Need To Have Experience To Make Money Online
Let me ask you guys a question. When you first started a new job did you start out knowing exactly what to do without any training?
No, you didn’t!!
Chances are that you needed to be trained first and watch a video or something so that you knew what was expected of you before you got started.
Why should things be any different in the online world?
Trust me they’re not as nobody starts out as an expert and you’ll need to be trained just like with any other job you may have had in your lifetime.
It can take you quite some time to learn everything you need to know to make this work for you and gain the knowledge required for you to start making good money but it’s definitely worth it.
Other than basic computer skills and the ability to read and write proper English then you can learn how to make money online like everyone else has if you’re willing to stick with it and think long term.
3) Making Money Online Is Nothing But A Big Fat Scam
If you visit my website often then you know that I expose many work from home scams and provide you guys with some solid facts about how to make honest money from home.
However, not everything you encounter online is a scam as there are currently a plethora of ways for you to earn money online from legitimate sources without having to worry about being scammed.
Do your own research and take other peoples income claims with a grain of salt.
Believe half of what you see nothing that you don’t physically see with your own eyes.
I have personally been earning a full time living from affiliate marketing since early 2014 as well as several other business models so I can testify to the fact that everything you find online isn’t a scam.
If you’re willing to do your due diligence and put in the time and effort into finding the right program that would make a good fit for you then you’ll find out for yourself that there is a lot of money to be made online from legit companies.
4) Anyone Can Make Money Online
While this opportunity is available to everyone as it’s possible for anyone to make money online if they’re willing to devote the amount of time that it takes to be successful and aren’t afraid to put in the work.
However, let’s face it, this opportunity isn’t for everyone especially if you’re the type of person that’s not willing to put forth the effort and learn a new skill that could potentially change your life for the better.
Over the years I have worked with many people and have shown them how this business works so I know first hand which ones would be a good candidate as well as the ones that I don’t feel this would be a good fit for.
I honestly feel like everyone out there has the potential to make money online but very few people are able to see that potential and reach it.
In order for you to do this, you’ll need to be self motivated and be able to follow instructions well and not be afraid to ask questions when you need some help.
Is this something you guys can do well?
It all comes down to having the right training that will walk you through this entire process step by step.
There are a plethora of systems out there that sell you on the dream of making money and don’t provide any type of quality training that shows you how to set everything up.
5) You Need To Have Skills To Make Money Online
This has got to be one of the most common misconceptions here and I actually thought that you did need special skills to make money here until I started making money myself and proved this theory to be wrong.
Besides the fact that you’ll need to be personal and possess basic skills that everyone has there is no special skills required to be successful here.
All you need to have is a passion or hobby that you could see yourself writing about for years to come without getting bored with it or running out of things to write about.
Let your passions lead the way and once it’s time to learn more about the more advanced stuff you’ll know a thing or two about how everything works and have already gained some valuable skills.
I always tell people to take baby steps and go 1 step at a time.
If you can do this then you can most definitely build a business online.
Like I said earlier, I have helped many many people build a business online based on a hobby or passion of theirs and there is nothing I would love to do more than help you guys do the same thing.
