TODAY, there are many misconceptions! There are more options available to everyone. The internet seems to be growing at an inflammatory rate, each day holds something new. It is hard to cope with the fast changing trends and moods of the online community. The best way to control a trend is to create one! That is what the internet has come to. I love it because it gives everyone a voice. What do you like about it? On the internet your opinion is important. On some websites, your opinions are worth money!
But the internet is a platform where people are able to connect and relate! That is why social networking, in particular Facebook, and some other 2.0 sites are the most visited sites today.
Internet marketing is getting simpler by the day. Companies are finding it much easier and more profitable to sell their products directly to the consumers. Social networks are some of the places with a human touch, communication and simplicity that we need to feel. Ironically though, we are more in touch when we are farther away from each other! What a wonderful world!
But what catches my attention are the LARGE NUMBERS the internet community generates. This place is so large that starting a business online is like adding water to a balloon full of water! Internet businessmen are the smarter digital salesmen who can get in touch with a global audience 24 hours a day!
‘Is there space for a small salesman on the net?’ Peter asks. “Perhaps these companies that make billions of dollars within a year aren’t hiring anymore.”
“Well,” said the man in a blue business suit and striped tie, “these companies are always hiring, there is an abundance of jobs and opportunities that you can get to choose what to do with this sophisticated technology called the internet!”
“You mean I can get a job?” he asks with his eyes sparkling with excitement.
The man laughs and lights a thick Cuban. The scent of the smoke is thick but has a tangy aroma that stained his nostrils.
“Well, it isn’t all that simple. But yes, you can get a job. You can get any sort of job you want, it all depends on what you want, its all about your drive, passion and desire.” He looks the young boy in his eyes, “You can simply create your own job if you like!”
Peter is shocked as he looks to the computer screen. His unblinking eyes are set on the screen displaying numbers that keep on growing. People seem to be buying whatever this man is selling on the internet and he can see it all before his very eyes. How can a man make $30 000 in an hour? This man is doing it and he is looking at the numbers grow on his screen biting a cigar.
It has to be some sort of trick Peter concludes. Where is the real money?
Learning to make cash online was horrible at first! At the time it felt like slave labor, some people can make up to about 40-50 dollars in a month, but that’s a drizzle compared to the hydrant of an internet!
You can work as hard as you want at anything that you choose to do, and you can make as much as your heart will allow! Isn’t that great? Some of the richest people today are internet entrepreneurs. I read that there is a person who wrote a single blog post and never had to work a day in his life again! That’s every Blogger’s wet dream! Or is it just me?
But the only thing that makes that true is the information that you present to the people you are marketing to. The internet is where information is shared! So if you have something useful to say, you can make a grand fortune too!
The rate at which information travels on the internet is rapid and widespread.
When you have an internet business the only thing that you need is to have traffic, that will increase sales!
But the only way to have your website or blog seen by many people is to be Lady Gaga, or to have a website about Lady Gaga!
It isn’t always the case though. If you can have a platform to communicate like a blog or a website, you can have traffic. But you cannot beat the instant traffic that a famous person has.
The internet has brought with it a cyber-social network where everyone has a voice and can be involved. You can be an ‘internet celebrity’ nowadays! The world keeps changing.
The internet gives people a new dimension in which to communicate and co-create.
The internet is the people on the net, they are what drives it, and that is what you need to focus on to make all the money on the internet.
Look at the people who are making the most money on Earth: Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube, Yahoo and more…
Some companies are based on the silliest ideas that work! I know about a person who sends mail to children for Christmas as claims its fro Santa in the north pole! Does that sound like millions of dollars to you? He makes so-o much money from this simple job.
But don’t beat yourself up for not thinking of something as genius as Facebook, there is more room to grow and the sky is the limit if you choose to make money on the internet. There are more positives than there are fallbacks.
The best thing about internet based business is the low, low cost of getting it started in proportion to the potential outcome!
If you have some sort of idea that you want to make happen, make sure that it is understandable and fits into the internet society, if it transcends it the better! People love things that enable them to connect, socialize, make money or have sex! That is what I learnt from TV! Don’t blame me!
But it is very possible to get attention by going against the tide and not riding the wave down the waterfall. So many internet businesses fail as soon as they take off because the pressure of demand is so overwhelming, they are ill-planned and destined to free fall!
Some internet businesses last as long as a mood or season. But some businesses are based on seasons. That is when the niche market is at its most aggressive! Things like Christmas drives the demand high and don’t forget the last minute shoppers!
You have to be creative if you want to start and survive in this internet climate. There is competition everywhere, just make yourself reliable and unique and you shouldn’t have any problems!
The internet is a cash machine, but stay away from cons! How will you know a con? Hmm… good one.
“So aren’t they just going to stop the money?” Peter asks.
The man simply laughs.
It has been two weeks and he has his own system set up similar to the one the man showed him. He has so many questions. The man isn’t giving him any direct answers, he gives vague remarks as he puffs on his aromatic cigar. Peter is under instructions to do his own research for his own business. So far, so good.
He never knew that anything like this is possible. Making money from other people’s goods!
“My niche is great, I found that the people in my niche want numerous other products, its great that I have an e-mail list to send them all these products!” he says scrolling down the modest list of 250 emails.
“All those in two weeks?” the man asks.
“Yes, I gave some free gifts here and there, but get this, giving away the gifts also made me money AND got me contacts! This is so awesome!”
“Yes, it really is great. But let me tell you one thing dear boy, as fast as you get this money, is as fast as it can stop! The choice is yours. You are the only one in control of what you have. There is a new person on the net each day, if you cannot get them happily involved with what you have to sell then you only have you to blame!” The man tosses his half smoked cigar in the glass of Sherry and turns his back to leave.
“Wait! Where are you going?”
The internet mechanics are simple and anybody can learn them fairly easily. As with anything, what you put into it is what you get out in return. Returns will be larger!
But is the internet secure? Or is it a place where people go to get rich quickly? There is no definite answer to that. There are so many ways to make the money you need, and there are also so many ways that you can lose the cash you made! However, the fastest way to fail is to not try at all! You have to be smart, you have to keep your ears and eyes working at all times for different reasons. You cannot make money sitting around watching a screen and thinking about making money, you have to actually do it and it will… actualize!
We are all geniuses! You need to have the courage to stick with what you have, know or love to be successful. There is a lot of work involved in making money online. Are you willing to work harder that you ever have? If you are then do what you love doing and turn it into your income. You are the one!
“Wow! What a nice car.”
“Thanks. Hey Regina! I know a great way that you can make money with that purse collection that you want to get rid of. Have you ever heard of ebay? I could get you a great deal…”
