I get this all the time. “I need to make money fast. I need to pay a bill. I need to pay my car payment. I’m about to get evicted. I need to learn how to make money online fast. Oh, and I have no money to pay you. I’m looking to make $5K to $10K per month. I need to do it within 90 days. What do you have for me?” This happens all the time. Essentially what people do is they get in a financial jam and then they start looking for solutions versus preparing for dry times before they come.
This is the truth about making money online fast. There are techniques and ways to do it. You can make $10K in a month. You can make $20K in a month. The information you would need to do that coasts money. If you are broke, then you can’t get it.
This is a template that you can use to gauge whether your online offer is authentic or not. I have a course 30 Days to $2500 Hustling Craigslist. They actually make a claim of making $1K to $2500 a month which is very reasonable. Are you getting rich? No. But, you’re making money. Now, I’m not going to tell you how to make a million dollars for $10. I don’t have those kinds of powers.
What I am saying is to let go of the fantasy. If you want to make money online, prepare for a long and arduous journey. This is why third-party sites such as eBay, Amazon and Etsy are so popular. They already have some of what you need there.
The real truth of the matter is that you should expect to spend six months to eighteen months building your online business. Here are a few tips. Once you start, you must reinvest all profits until you get to a certain level. When I started Conundrum Publishing, I didn’t make any money for six months.
The reasons I created new courses on Udemy is because they’re quick and they’re easy. You can get in, get what you need and get started. They’re also economical.
I see some people who get into a group and they just absorb everything. Within two or three months, they’re doing okay. Then in six months, they’re doing really okay. Then a year later, you’re seeing $20K, $30K and $50K screenshots.
The thing is there is a critical component that people are trying to get around that is really going to hamper them. You must commit to sacrifice, effort and work if you want to succeed. I can’t get you around that hump. I can help you flatten your learning curve, and I charge a pretty penny for that.
If you want to make money online, there are several ways you can do it. You can do it selling stuff. You can do it through affiliate marketing. You can do it through YouTube. There are so many ways. All of them have a very similar beginning process.
You’re not going to know what you’re doing. You will make mistakes. You may or may not spend money on bad decisions. There is a learning curve.
There are many of you who think you can figure it out on your own without spending a dime. That’s a weakness. If you think you can figure it out on your own, you’re going to get to a certain level and stop. You are going to top out very quickly.
I’ll see people who are business folks from other avenues of life. They were maybe wholesalers or had a store and then they come online and knock it out. People are like, “Wow.” They think the reason for the fast success is the platform and don’t give much credit to the person’s experience or work prior to them jumping onto that platform.
The guy who did a million dollars in FBA sales by himself, he has a 20-year career in selling stuff. He’s got decades of experience. Then people try to replicate what he did without the experience. Then when it doesn’t work for them, they wonder why.
Peter Thiel, one of the co-founders of PayPal, said “All businesses that grow rapidly have a secret.” They have a unique selling proposition. They have something special. That’s the reality.
If you go into a group and you trade information and that information is pedestrian, or not special, it will make you some money for a short period of time. Then it’s going to dry up because everyone is sharing information.
To make money online, you have to have something special. If you’re a commodities broker and you’re selling what everybody else is selling, you’re going to be a victim of downward pricing. The more people that come to the market with that item, the lower the price goes.
If you want to make money online, give yourself a year to make money; not a week or a month. Give yourself a solid year of application.
Also, the second year, you’re going to reinvest all profits from the first year to give your business a fighting chance at being successful. Another thing that kills a business is if you want to start a business and eat off the plate immediately. That’s going to kill it. The business will never get as big as it can. You can’t eat off the plate the first day. Starting a business takes discipline and sacrifice.
The companies Google, PayPal, Amazon, eBay, Facebook and Dropbox had an insane amount of effort going into them in the beginning stages when they were making little to no money. That’s how they became the billion-dollar companies they are today. You’re not going to get a billion-dollar company with a W-2 mindset. As long as you try to run your business like a job, you’re deluding yourself.
Forget about fast. Think long-term. Think about starting today and learning from your mistakes and reinvesting money back into the business. In maybe three years, the business will be making $150K or $200K or $500K a year. If you can do this, it will be worth the wait.
