To make money online many people jump right in before they are properly prepared. You know that to be a rocket scientist, a doctor, a brick layer, a construction worker, an office worker, a teacher there are prerequisites, things you must learn, before you can be successful, you don’t just jump right in unprepared.
The same applies to the Internet marketing industry even though there are unsavory people out there who’d have you believe it’s a “Walk in the Park” and requires no more than the belief that you can just do it.
And I’ll have to admit, it is a walk in the park compared to what you have to put up with in the working world punching a clock being a subordinate to someone who does not have your interests in mind, but there are still rules you have to follow and pitfalls you must avoid to actually make Internet marketing work for you.
Most people will not make a dime online and yet there are others who will make more in one month than most people make in a whole year. Why is this happening?
My answer begins with the age-old chicken or egg question, “what comes first the chicken or the egg”? Personally I thing, well I guess not, each argument you or I make will come back to the same old conclusions about which I have no clue and I think noone really has.
But one thing I do have a clue about and know for sure is that to make money online you must first have Passion for the company products and/or service of any Internet business from which you expect to make money.
Passion in this sense simply means that you’ve researched and like the company and products or services. It is then that you translate that like (or Passion) into the education, excitement and work that usually accompany Passion.
I will say the truth if I reaveal to you that many top online entrepreneurs can afford to ignore their passion because they can sell anything with great success. But I’m concerned about those of you who are not so knowledgeable at working an online business successfully.
I am not suggesting that only Passion is the secret ingredient here. Because in order to be very successful online, you need to have things like website, learn marketing tips, know how and where to advertise and much more. That you will learn from the company you decided to join – but forget your Passion and your chances for success will decrease dramatically.
What that means is that if you have no Passion for the service, company, products or whatever you trying to do, you will simply not do the work that is needed to do.
Internet marketing work is typically not all that difficult or time consuming but it does take motivation caused by Passion to get you off and running with a sustained effort so that you won’t stumble.
You can use internet search engines like Google to research anything you want for free, learn to use it for your advantage!
Your sound research will present you the one and only company you will have the confidence in. It should be solid, founded on great principles, and easy to understand with great products and services that are sell-able for which you can have Passion. If you have problem to find it, move on. I am sure you can find many opportunities that have the attributes shown above.
Comments like, well, that one sounds good and the compensation plan is excellent so I guess I’ll start that business – does not sound like a decision based on anything near Passion. Have on your mind that if some guru says he doesn’t need Passion in order to make money online, don’t be temted to listen to this advice, because he is so experienced that he really don’t need the Passion and he still can sell almost anything he wants.
Note: By the way it’s your goal to get to the point where you can sell about anything online. That skill you learn at the end is worth more than just money.
Remember, there are other steps you must make before you step into Internet Marketing but if you don’t first find the right company products and services to be passionate about, all of those other steps may just cause you a lot of frustration instead of bringing you great success.
Not being Passionate about a company and products and services that has market proof that it will sell is a pitfall you simply must avoid.
