Making Money Online

As more and more people realized that the economy is not going to recover in due time, they also found out that their job is no longer stable anymore. As such, these people are looking for alternative ways to generate income for "rainy days". Naturally, most of those with IT knowledge will explore Internet Marketing, thinking that its the easy way out. Perhaps with a little effort here and there, they might just strike it rich !

What they do not realize is that Internet Marketing is as tough as doing a Networking or MLM business. It really takes a lot of time and effort to prepare the ground work and the discipline to persist in the face of uncertainty.

No doubt there is money to be made online but we need to learn from the Basic first. First, we need to know what Niche we have that the market will want. Second, How to create that awareness so that people will come to you ? Third, How to capitalize on visits made by the visitors to your website ? Fourth, How long will it take before you see the 1st dollar of this venture ?

Beside this, you need to know the technicality of creating a website for it, what type and what kind of website ? How to promote your product and through what method ?
How to create a Sales Page so that people will be attracted to your promotion and what-nots ? How to make your website popular ?

Unless you are prepared to learn or re-learn this BUSINESS from scratch ( just like Networking or MLM ), most will give up halfway through the venture. What I like about this option of business is that it gives me freedom to do anything I want. No one is going to tell me whether I did it wrong or not. It allows me to constantly go back to my drawing board to fine-tune what I have done. The only sign of success you get is when the visitors rating goes higher or people start buying the product that you are promoting and you start making money.

I know there are plenty of people out there learning the rope like me and to me, it is a marathon race that will ultimately show my potential as long I believe this business option works.

I have gone through 3 recessions in my life time and I want to be financially rich enough before the next one comes along !
