For Tech Savvy People The Idea To Sell Online Is Exciting
But for those who are not so knowledgeable about the internet and its various options on offer the idea can be a little intimidating. If you are online quite often you will come across posts in the various social media sites where people have been making big bucks online and it all sounds so easy.
Are There Really People Making Mega Bucks? Yes!
The thing is there are a lot of people making mega bucks online but there are many many more who have tried to but not done so. And the reason for this is varied and many, let me tell you, because have been around the internet for many years. I was self-taught initially and had absolutely no idea about technology. I look back now, some 11 years later and I must say I amazed at what I can do now.
What I am trying to get across to you here is that YES lots of money can be made but it is not as easy as one first thinks. Most people, well women anyway, have shed more than a tear or two out of shear frustration during their learning curve.
There are many things that will trip you up and one of the most common is jumping from one gold nugget to another gold nugget. For an entrepreneur like myself it is like looking into a row of candy shops when you think of the opportunities that there are to sell online.
Just to name a few:
- graphic design
- writing – ebooks, descriptions, articles, blog posts, marketing and more
- make and sell your own products
- sell products for other manufacturers that you have purchased
- sell affiliate products
- drop shipping
- site flipping
- video work
- website design
- email marketing
- virtual assistant
Many of the people you talk to about making a living online will tell you that they have followed more than one path. Some have found their niche almost straight away and others have even taken a couple of years.
How Do You Really Make Money Online
The simple fact is that just like any business, either online or offline and either small or large, your business needs to be marketed and this is where many businesses fail.
When you are in business for yourself it is very hands on and when you feel the demands on your time one of the first things that slips is your marketing and that is one of the first steps that will slow your business down.
Marketing Marketing Marketing
Gosh I sound like I am preaching but you really must allow at least one hour of marketing a day for your home based business, no matter what it is that you have decided to do.
My advice to you would be if you are going to make money online one of the first investments you should make in yourself is to learn how to market successfully online. Learn two or three methods and know them well.
Once you have done that you will be well on the way to being able to attach different methods of making money and have a good chance at making the money you want.
The thing is that in most cases people who have decided to sell online are going to attempt something that they are comfortable in being involved with, something that they have an insight into. And that is why I suggest your first courses should be in either setting up a great SEO blog and then following that up with learning top marketing skills.
