Many people jump into making money online hoping to develop the next big thing or develop a strategy to help them get rich overnight.
In the online world there will always be something better, bigger and faster. There will always be a new gimmick, new make money online method or a more profitable way to develop your online businesses.
Making money online isn’t impossible. There will always be a new site, a new system and new technologies coming online. However, as a blogger you will probably not be developing the next big thing or the next kill application.
Regardless of how many times you read about the 16-year old who developed the killer-app, the killer site or the next great social networking tool, there are millions of more failures you don’t hear about.
There are no shortcuts. There are no gimmicks.
That doesn’t mean you can’t make a decent living online. It does mean you have to look at well proven strategies to make a living.
I was a little late jumping into the world of making money online. I was quite comfortable with my career path and made a very good living consulting and running several businesses.
Since making the transition online, I’ve tried just about every program I could find. I’ve read hundreds of books and invested in hundreds of systems. Every thing I read told me what I was doing was wrong because every one of these resources wanted me to believe if I purchased their program, ebook, membership and manual, I would get rich overnight.
I was always trying to look for the next big thing that would make me rich.
The only thing I learned was there is no easy way to get rich online. There is no next big thing. It isn’t about having a system or a gimmick.
What I have discovered through the last year the amount you earn is directly proporational to the amount of effort.
Being more focused has given me a little more insight into what works and what doesn’t work. My earnings have stabalized since Google Panda, some of my search results have improved and the quality of my sites have increased.
What’s your thoughts on coming up with the next big thing? Do you think you’ll get rich with a scheme or gimmick you’re developing or is it all about hard work?
