Do You Want To Make Money Online Then You Must Read This Article

by Trevor Kugler

There are many people that want to make money online, and that's wonderful. The problem is that there are a few things that must be considered before you embark on becoming the next internet millionaire. Contrary to popular belief, making money on the internet isn't as easy as say…..winning the lottery. Making money on the internet is just like making money doing anything…..there's work involved. Before you make the decision to attempt to make money online, consider these points.

1) Traffic doesn't just magically come to your website. You have to "go out and get" traffic. Most people don't realize this. They have the Field of Dreams mentality, "if you build it, they will come." Let me clue you in…..they don't just come, in many respects, you have to go get them.

2) Simply being an affiliate for other products isn't going to make you wealthy. For example, many people believe that slapping an Amazon banner on their site will generate orders. Nope, without traffic it doesn't matter who you affiliate with. Being affiliated with good companies is great and something you should probably do, but again it doesn't matter without traffic.

3) Like any endeavor that you undertake with the goal of generating abundance, there's going to be an investment of money involved. To actually make money online, you're going to have to invest money into your online business. It's as simple as that. If you opened a pizza shop, it would require you to invest money. The online arena is no different.

4) You've probably heard a lot about lists. Email lists to be exact. All of the experts say that you must have a big list, and to continually build your list. If you're just starting out, this means that you have to buy email addresses. This costs money. You hear a lot about opt-in lists, which simply means that a person decided to sign up for your newsletter or e-zine. This is absolutely the best kind of list to have, but what the "experts" fail to mention is the fact that it's difficult (at best) to get people to voluntarily sign up for your e-zine or newsletter. Impossible…….absolutely not, just more difficult than most people let on, and you should be aware of that fact.

5) Making money online is exactly like making money in any other business, the method is just a little bit different. Many so called experts make the internet out to be something that it's simply not. Making money online requires work, just as making money anywhere does.

Keep these points in mind as you move forward. All the success in the world is available; I just wanted to clear up a bit of the misinformation floating around out there. If none of these points scare the living daylights out of you and you still want to make money online, good for you! Keep in mind what Jim Rohn says about money as you move forward, "Time is more value than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time."
