Truth About Making Money Online
I know. You’ve heard all the promises. You’ve seen all the success stories. As you know, it’s possible for just about anyone to create a good income online. Look at me. I’ve done it now for 13 years. My last job before the internet was delivering pizzas for Little Caesars. As I often say, if I can do it…I’m sure you can do it too.
And of course it’s not only me. There are probably millions of people today earning good money online (some are part-time while others are full-time). So it’s a definite truth that people are making money online today.
But is it really as easy as some people make it out to be?
The answer there is No. It’s not as easy as some people make it out to be. Everywhere you turn it seems someone is promising you the next secret to earning millions online. Sometimes it’s “fully automated where you don’t lift a finger.” I have yet to see any “true business” be fully automated when you’re starting out (that is the end goal after you spend all the work putting systems in place).
It takes time and effort to get your business to the point where it earns passive income. Right now in my business I do have quite a bit of passive income which comes in, but then other portions of my income I’m taking part in (like writing this blog and coaching).
So in other words, if you want to make money online, you’ve got to work online. It doesn’t have to be full-time work and it definitely isn’t hard work no matter what anyone says. I can promise you from experience that delivering pizzas in a blizzard, not getting any tips, and showing back up in the office with less money than you’re supposed to have is MUCH worse than your worst day online (your worst day online is usually when your order system shuts off or some technical aspect goes haywire and you have to have the techs fix it).
1. It most definitely is possible for just about anyone to succeed online.
2. It’s not as easy and “work-free” as some people claim it to be.
Another principle here is that many people think the ONLY way for a beginner to get started online is by entering the make money field. That’s a BIG lie. In many cases (not all), that is one of the worst places for a beginner to start because they go up against the best in the world…and they’re not experienced enough to take it.
Yet very rarely do you get the opportunity to see someone outside of this industry sharing all their secrets. Why would they? They’d just create more competitors for themselves…with no real benefit to their own business (since they wouldn’t be selling anything you’d want).
For example, recently I stayed at Glenn Livingston’s house. Fred Gleeck, Glenn Livingston, Sharon Livingston, and I created a product together…even sharing our exact mistakes starting out (not often you get to hear those). Our goal was to AUTHENTICALLY give you step-by-step the way to success online. That’s the key word there…authentic.
We simply went into Glenn Livingston’s living room with a couple of page outline. Nothing was scripted. We were open to asking any questions we wanted to ask of each other (and we asked a lot of questions in some cases as I left the weekend with a list of my own notes to improve my business).
One of the best parts of the weekend for me was meeting a new friend. He had purchased both Fred’s products and my own before. Today he is extremely successful online with a large team of staff members (much bigger than our own). Throughout our time together he kept adding in his agreement and additional tips from his own business.
In fact he shared with us he has over 300,000 opt-in subscribers on ONE of his daily emails lists. Yes, that’s right. He’s built a list of over 300 hundred thousand while sending emails almost every day. In addition, he has 11,000+ testimonials in that one niche market alone. That’s not just 11,000 purchasers … that’s 11,000 ECSTATIC purchasers who’ve actually taken the time to sign their name to endorse his work.
And that is only one of his “little niche markets.” Kind of destroys the concept of niches being little once you see what he’s done there.
In our product together he does share his name and he does talk a little bit about his market. But as I mentioned above, he basically made me remove any mention of his name from our sales copy. I originally wrote the sales copy introducing him and highlighting him. He asked for removal of all of it because he didn’t want that much attention since he doesn’t sell any “internet marketing” products.
So I’ve had to change his name to Mr. D. only. I wish I could share a little more about him, but he said NO. And I consider him a good friend now. Since we met in person we’ve spoken over the phone multiple times in the last month or so. So I’ll respect his wishes in this.
One aspect I was able to secure for you my readers is an extremely good price. I know there are many people who have been hit by the recession. So I was able to convince my partners on this to deliver this product digitally instead of as a LARGE home study package (we discussed multiple manuals and more than a dozen CDs).
If I had one product I would buy this year, this is it. It’s not because of me. While I do share some strong elements throughout the package, it’s the information Glenn, Sharon, and Fred share here. What I learned from them is going to be worth more money to me personally this year. In addition, Mr. D. couldn’t stay quiet at times. At times he was even bouncing up and down in his seat to share something he has experimented with in his own business. Sometimes he made me simply say WOW about what has worked for him. It’s incredible.
