What Don’t You Know About Making Money Online?

I started in the internet marketing business three years ago. I struggled and persisted and kept thinking I must be doing something wrong. I knew there must be something I did not know about making money online. I did know one thing, I was putting in a lot of effort and getting no return on my invested time.I tried every make money scheme on line and I still wasn’t making money. I searched for the answers and one day I found out I wasn’t doing anything wrong. I was just not doing anything right. There were things that I needed to know to be successful making money online.#1 The first thing I did not know was how to figure out what to sell.What to sell is the biggest problem faced by everyone who wants to make money on the internet. The choice is sell someone else’s product or sell your own. The good news is you don’t need to have a product.You can sell someone else’s product by being an affiliate marketer. You do the internet marketing whether it is my email, running an ad campaign or blog and market someone else’s product for them and make a commission.There is a lot of money to be made online in affiliate marketing if you know what you are doing and have the right products to sell.The majority of people making big bucks online start as affiliate marketers and then develop their own products. They get 100% of the income rather than a commission or they may decide to use affiliate marketers to sell their product.I did not have a product and wasted a lot of money clicking on making money fast offers until I figured out that if I want to make money I need to pick the product I am going to sell wisely. So I stopped buying every offer coming into my email box and got busy researching the affiliate products that had the highest commission rates and provided the most value to my customers.#2 How to Choose the Right ProductI don’t know about you, but I want to make a lot of money with minimal effort. I know everyone says you have to work hard, etc. etc. I get that. I also know that if I work hard now I can make a lot of money online by working smarter later on. So my product has to have a high commission and be valuable to my customers. I do not want to market anything that is going to overwhelm my entrepreneurial customers. Many of the products out there sell training that is nothing but videos with no contact with a real person. This type of training is extremely frustrating and I don’t want to sell that type of product.#3 Training with a person you can talk to is imperative.If you are naturally brilliant you may not need personal training. I on the other hand, don’t know which way is up with respect to running an internet business. I tried to learn how to make money online with my business for three years and I was spinning my wheels and wasting my hard earned money.I watched videos until I was blue in the face and still didn’t get it. There was nobody that I could call and ask a question. Talk about frustrated. Fortunately I did find an organization that provides training with real people.I am no longer frustrated and am successful making money online.Next Step:The main thought I want to leave you with is this. You need knowledge, hands on training and a mentor that can lead you in the right direction. You can have the best products in the world, but if you do not know how to market them on the internet you are wasting your time.There is an enormous amount of information on the internet. Make a list of the subjects you need to learn. Make a Training Plan. Learn one thing, do it, master it and then learn another. There is no quick way to make money online. It takes time to practice and practice what you need to master to be successful online.Jim Rohn summed up the need for education “Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune” Find a Mentor that is successful making money online and is willing to show you the steps to be successful. I actually have 5 mentors and have learned more from them in six months than the three years by myself.Bottom line your success is up to you. Diana Ross said, “You know, you do need mentors, but in the end, you really just need to believe in yourself. ”
