You somehow come to know that anyone can now make money online and live a better lifestyle. So you search for such opportunities and you are bombarded with tempting offers which promise to give you an online system that will pour huge money in your bank account every month (sometimes everyday). Interestingly, everything is supposed to happen without much effort from your part!
Some of the brain-watering headlines you find are -
Well, you may go ahead. It’s your money and your dream. I’m nobody to pull you away from achieving your dream. Because that would be a curse to me.
But I just want to tell you that they are fake, scams and dodgy. If you fall into their trap, you’ll waste your valuable time and money.
The internet is full of scams. Fraudsters work hard day and night to take all the hard-earned money from people like you and me. They come with full marketing plan to lure you until you start typing your credit card number. I’m not sure about you but anyone who needs money urgently or who wants to try to make quick money online falls into their trap.
No, I’m not saying that all the making money online schemes out there are scams. There are some legitimate online earning schemes too. Some have even made news headlines in some of the top news and magazine sites for their proven system of making money online and for creating more internet millionaires.
But the logic of making money online remains the same just as it is in the real world: The effort you make is the return you get! This is the equation of making money both online and offline. Even if some people earn money from the dodgy schemes, they earn by doing the same thing as the owner of the scheme does. And that is to trap more people like themselves!
To make money from the legitimate schemes, you’ll need to work hard. Anyone who says there is a system to make money without any effort is fake or illegal. On the other hand, if you know somebody who is making huge money without doing much work, then he must be someone who had already put a great amount of time, money and brain into his work before being blessed with his present situation.
Sometimes, the presentations of such schemes of making money make them look easy, doable and affordable. But that should not be the only reason for joining them. If any scheme looks so good that you cannot ignore, it’s better to do more research. It’s better to read reviews and experiences of existing/old members in forums and blogs. You should also consider contacting members privately if possible. The world has still many people left who are ready to give you honest replies.
Finally, if any doubt arises, believe me, it doesn’t worth more of your time!
Real online business is all about building your own web property or assets. I even don’t much support making money online with PPC (Pay Per Click) sites, reading emails and viewing advertisements, etc. Simply because there is no learning and hence no future. The same time can be used to learn and build better ways of making money online.
There are far more better ways of making money online other than what is given above. I would like to present some of the best ways you can start building your online assets.
Internet has connected us with a different world where there are numerous opportunities of earning just like in the real world. From this aspect, we can say that internet has doubled the opportunities of earning a livelihood! But that doesn’t mean we should invest money on “get rich quick” programs.
The ideal way is to take time on learning and building online assets slowly but steadily.
Here are a few proven ways of earning online with which even your grandfather would agree!
The best online businesses are built on good ideas. If you have one, why not talk to a web-designer and discuss the possibilities?
It doesn’t need to be a global idea like Facebook or Google in order to make money. Even a small idea focusing on your local town can go well. If you struggle to find good website ideas, keep your eyes wide open and start brainstorming and find out what people are looking for. See if any service for a certain group of people can be given through a website.
Brainstorming and generating ideas have been a part of this blog from the beginning. You may go through some of my posts on website ideas:
