This is the sixth and final article in the series on how to make money on the internet. Before writing this article, I was going to share some more methods of making money on the internet before realizing that the series could go on and on if we keep dealing with the methods.
The truth is that there are numerous ways to make money both online and offline but the underlying principle behind making money remains the same. The moment you thoroughly understand the principle, you’ll easily recognize the methods when you see them.
Money is a reward for providing value (solving problems). If you can find a way to provide value, then you’ve found a potential way to make money; be it on the internet or offline.
To conclude this series, I will be sharing with you common mistakes many people who attempt to make money on the internet make (I hate to admit this but I made all of these mistakes as well. 🙁 (I wish I could turn back the hands of time and start over again. Well, I can’t so I’ll focus on making the most of the days ahead! 🙂 )
Here are four common reasons why people fail miserably or never see their own successful online business come to life.
1. Trial and Error – Not sticking to a proven system.
My friend and I started out in the online space blogging and clicking our own adverts in a bid to make money! 😉 Then I moved on to taking paid online surveys, joining paid to click ad networks, HYIP, forex trading before I eventually discovered freelance article writing and then affiliate marketing – these two have made me the most cash online till date.
Like I did, one major mistake I see plenty of people making when it comes to building an online business is going the trial and error route.
You don’t build a business on assumptions alone, you need to acquire correct knowledge to enable you thrive in this space. Instead of jumping from program to program hoping it works.
2. The Shiny Object Syndrome – Lack of focus.
You can’t get ahead in the online business sphere if you’re jumping from one system to another. Jumping at every offer that is thrown at you or anything you hear makes money.
This was a major challenge for me when I was still playing the trial and error game. Since I was only trying, I abandoned the systems that could have well for me if I had stayed with it.
The truth is that there are several systems that work when it comes to making money on the internet.
You’ve got to identify a system that works well and is suitable for you, then focus on doing what is required to get you the results you seek.
3. Learning without taking focused action.
This is by far the biggest barrier I had to deal with when I started out in the online business sphere.
I kept learning and learning until I was paralyzed by too much information a disease often referred to as “information overload”. A state of confusion which comes from knowing too much but not taking as much action. I had to move away for a season to get clarity on what I really wanted to do.
No amount of knowledge will replace taking massive action to produce the results you require in your online business.
I’ve shared some ideas you can use to make money on the internet in the past few weeks, what action have you taken based on what you have learnt?
4. Impatience – there is no such thing as get rich quick.
I’ve had times when after carefully choosing a money making system and taking massive action, I’d give up on the project before it failed to produce the results that I had anticipated as soon as I expected it to.
This was largely sponsored by my faulty perception of internet business at the time. I have seen so many people show off massive earnings that I failed to realized that it actually took them time to get to that point.
I’ll say it to you as simply as I can; making money on the internet doesn’t take happen overnight – it takes time.
Yes, there are tremendous opportunities to make money online in record time but you’ll still need time to learn how to work these systems.
5. Not having a mentor or guide.
Having a mentor to guide you on your journey is a sure way to arrive there and this is the quickest way to success when it comes to making money on the internet.
A mentor is not your baby sitter, NO!
A mentor guides you on the journey and saves you the trouble of having to learn from your own mistakes by giving you the wisdom they learnt from theirs.
So if you do not have a mentor already, you should consider getting one to guide you on this journey.
So there you have it; simple tips you can implement to avoid the frustrations many people experience in an attempt to build an online business.
Pick a proven system you can focus on, commit to putting in the work, stick with it and get a mentor to guide you in producing the results you desire.
