You wouldn’t believe the number of people that contact me on an almost daily basis that seem to be more worried about making money than they are about helping people and creating quality content.
With all the get rich quick schemes and other worthless scams that seem to run rampant in the online space, I can totally understand why they think this way.
However, if you worry more about when you’re going to make your first $1 online and less on building a business that helps people out and answers their questions then chances are that you’ll never see that first $1 or any money for that matter.
In the following post, I’ll be sharing a few things that you need to know before you even think about making money in the online space.
If you have failed to make money online in the past due to focusing on the money, instead of writing quality content and engaging with your audience then you should definitely stick around as this post was written especially for YOU.
Building A Business Is All About Helping People
Did you know that there are currently 3.75 billion people who are searching the internet on a daily basis?
Whether they’re on their mobile device, laptop, tablet, or a desktop they’re searching for information on a specific topic and looking for answers.
What exactly are they searching for?
Well, this could be anything from improving their golf swing to beating a challenging boss in God Of War or some other popular video game.
As an online marketer, it’s your job to provide these people with answers to their questions and direct them to a product/ service that will help them out and provide a solution to their problem.
When building a business it’s imperative that you’re writing helpful content that serves the needs of your audience and provides them with the information they are looking for when they typed their search query into the search engines.
If you aren’t being helpful then your chances of being successful in the online world are very slim!!
Building A Business Takes Time
This is one of the many reasons why most people don’t make it in the online world.
They seem to think that you can start making money right away without having to spend the time to learn everything they need to know for their business to prosper.
There are a few things that you need to understand about this business before you jump in head first expecting to get results overnight.
These are as follows!!
Domain Age- It can take up to 1 year or more before your domain gets fully established and gains authority in the search engines.
Based on my own personal experience it has taken me closer to 2 years before I started to rank good and show up on the first page of Google quite frequently.
Starting From Scratch- Another thing that most people also don’t seem to understand is the fact that you’re starting out with a blank canvas.
You’re going to need to establish a brand and build a business around this brand which can take quite some time and a great amount of effort on your part.
Building A Business Requires The Right Program
You wouldn’t believe how many so called online business opportunities that I’ve encountered over the past 20 years or more that I’ve been online.
I have literally tried just about anything and everything out there from link posting scams to MLM, to get rich schemes.
If you name it, I’ve probably tried it out or at least heard about it.
The vast majority of these business opportunities that you encounter online nowadays usually involves recruiting people and selling the exact same thing that you just bought in order for you to earn money.
Many of you may disagree with me, but recruiting is in NO WAY a business and by doing this you’re only making the creators of this system and the people at the top more money.
After falling for these types of programs in the past, I eventually stumbled onto a company called Wealthy Affiliate.
Naturally, I was skeptical due to the multitude of scams that I had fallen victim to in the past but after I started to navigate my way around the community I knew I was in the right place.
If you’re serious about learning the proper way to build a business online then this is the program that you NEED or you simply won’t make it.
Building A Business Requires Lots Of Effort
Contrary to what you may have been told by other online gurus, learning the proper way to build a business takes a great deal of effort on your part.
I can remember when I first started 5 + years ago that I spent close to 12- 16 hours a day working on my business and I was perfectly fine with this.
Now I understand that many of you may not be able to devote this much time to this and that’s fine.
The only thing that really matters here is that you’re being productive when you are working and that you’re putting as much effort into this that you possibly can.
After nearly 4 months of consistent taking action and busting my butt going through the training, learning and taking everything in, I finally made my first sale.
It was only $8, but you would think that I won the lottery.
I was speechless and jumping for joy over what just happened and I thought I was dreaming.
By this time, my now ex-wife and family thought I had lost my mind and told me I was crazy.
Fast forward 6 months later and I was to the point in my business where I was starting to earn a consistent income and making over $1,000 a month.
Guess what would happen if I didn’t take this seriously and devote the amount of time and effort that was needed to see these types of results?
Well, chances are that I would probably be stuck working a 9 to 5 minimum wage job barely able to make ends meet and get by.
Proof That Hard Work & Consistent Action Pays Off
I’m not much of a guy to show off or post my income earnings here as that is a tactic that most scammers use to lure you in and take your money.
However, some people need to see some type of proof that this business works and I have no problem at all sharing my results with you guys here today.
Over the years I was able to create multiple sources of income and have gotten paid from several companies in the online world.
Here are just a few of them listed below!!
This all goes back to what I was talking about earlier, helping people.
Do you think any of this would have been possible if I had focused on the money instead of helping people?
If you focus on helping people and creating quality content then I can promise you that the money will follow.
It may take a while before you see any results but trust me it’s well worth every minute that you devote to it.
