If you’ve been doing any research on Internet Marketing, you’ve probably come across so-called gurus who claim to have earned millions online. And you might be wondering, can you really make millions on the Internet?
Well, it is possible, but don’t think you can get there by simply buying some guru’s product. You get there by consistent correct effort. And by consistent correct effort, we mean that you learn a method for promoting things online and you stick to it until you master it and earn money from it. And when you start to earn, scale up your efforts so that you multiply your current income.
Too often, people get into Internet Marketing with ultra-high hopes about income with little thought about what it really takes to get there. They try one method for sometime and when they don’t see results immediately, they try another method and then try another method… There is no end to the cycle.
This is the reason why 95% of people who get into Internet Marketing fail. They’re too impatient to earn money, when what they should be doing is getting the basics right.
As far as we know, there are people who have made a lot of money from the Internet. However, these people worked at the trenches for many years before they go to the point where their income from the Internet exceeded their salaries.
Don’t believe what they tell you that income from the Internet is easy. It takes work and knowledge. However, it does have its own advantages over having a full-time job. For one, you won’t have anyone breathing down your neck. For another, your income really depends on you and you alone. There’s nobody else to blame but you when things don’t go your way.
One of the most popular Internet Marketing methods is Search Engine Optimization or SEO. What is SEO?
It’s basically the process of tweaking your website so that it ranks on search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo. It’s actually a very powerful method. If you rank number one for a certain keyword, it is possible to earn hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, for that keyword alone.
Although this method has gone through a lot of changes especially for Google, it’s still worth doing. However, if you’re going to do it, make sure you hire SEO experts who have a track record of being able to rank websites for different keywords.
You can do it yourself but there’s a steep learning curve for newbies. If you have the time and are not so impatient about earning money, get some training by buying SEO courses or signing up with paid forums. With luck, you can have your first sale in a month, but with consistent correct effort, you could be living comfortably on passive income within two years.
We can’t guarantee you’ll be a millionaire by then, but we can guarantee that you will have enough money, yet still have enough time to spend with your friends and family.
