Step #4 of Ten
How to make money online from nothing can be accomplished by following a plan of action. When you take the right steps to get started, you can go from having no online presence to building and running a successful online business. The biggest problem people will run into is how to get started. Without knowing where to start, you can be pulled into a million different directs, well maybe not a million but you will be confused.
The Internet offers many ways to make money, it all boils down to how. For quick money, some people will sign up for surveys. When you do surveys, you can make money, but it takes a pile of work answering surveys for the sake of a small amount of money. Some will see about making money with PPC where companies will pay per click for all that you do on the Internet. Again not very much money for the excessive hours you need to put in for a little bit of money.
Whether you do the two I mentioned or the vast variations of methods to make money from the concept, once you stop doing what you’re doing, you make nothing. It’s like still being an employee working for small wages, except you can stop and start when you like as well put in as many or as few hours as you want for the little amount of money you’ll earn.
That is not what most of you are here to find out. Most of you want to replace and eliminate your current job and make as good or better money off the Internet and later on, just do some scheduled earning maintenance and still be able to collect on a residual income.
So how to make money online from nothing starts right here with these Actions!
- Proper Mind Set
- Goal Setting
- A Laid Out Action Plan
- Scheduling the Plan
- Working the Plan
Proper Mind Set
Before anybody can accomplish anything of importances that takes time and dedication, you need to have the proper mindset. Without understanding the commitment to what it is your going to do, you will fail. The only way people will make the hard choices when the going gets tough is when they have their head in the game. You need to want it to make it happen, or it is just too easy to walk away and simply give up.
So how do you know if it’s what you want or if you should be doing something else? You need to look at what the result is and what it will do for you. You should also look at the results if you go another direction.
Right now you’re looking at having an online presence. If you pursue with an online presence then this is what you can accomplish:
- Replace your existing work with an online income!
- Decide when and how you want to work?
- Helping yourself as you help others!
- Have the opportunity for how much you earn?
- Decide how many vacations and when?
- Have more time for family and friends!
- Opportunity to work from anywhere!
- With time and money, your list can grow?
If you choose to walk away the results could be:
- The rest of your life plays out the same, is that good or bad?
- Keep your job or go work for somebody else?
- Maybe you’ll work for someone else if you get laid off?
- Maybe you start an offline business and try to earn enough?
- Settle for your pension and hope you planned for inflation correctly?
- With where you are now, life can go good or bad?
To put yourself in the right mindset you need to consider your short, medium and long-range goals.
The best way for anyone to get themselves in the right mindset is by setting goals. These goals need to be what you want regardless of what others think and want. For instance, if you want a boat, it could be something for this year or further down the road. If the boat is considered a yacht, you’ll find that could take some time to afford, or if you want a house first then a boat. Your friend could say, skip the boat and get an expensive sports car.
If your not into expensive sports cars why would you want to purchase your friends, goal or dream vehicle when you want to cruise around in a beautiful boat. You set your goals according to you and your family for instance and set them over a course of time. You may not always achieve each goal for when you set them, but it gives you a reason to work towards worthwhile goals.
You will also want to set a timeline of goals for your online business. To just create a website and sit back for the money to roll in is not a realistic goal.
To make money online will require you to set goals, weekly, monthly and even yearly if you want to earn serious money. To make money online takes work just like it does anywhere else. The difference is how you work and how much time you put in.
A Laid Out Action Plan
Your biggest concern will be what is the action plan and how will you carry it out. Most people never figure this part out. They know they want an online business but never get one up and running. There are many reasons to why they don’t, but I’ll give you the directions for the right path.
One of the best ways to make this happen is by becoming an Affiliate Marketer. By becoming an Affiliate, you do not need to produce products or services to earn an income. You can market other people’s products/services so one day you can get residual income. That will not happen if you’re producing stuff unless you’re into taking some time out for creating e-books and digital software for example.
You will need to learn the things you presently do not know and learn as you go when the Internet keeps changing as it grows. During this process, these are things you should be aware of:
- Where and how to create a website.
- How to pick the right Domain name.
- How to pick a profitable niche.
- Learn where and how to become an Affiliate.
- Learn how to use tools for tracking
- Learn to use tools for keyword research
- Proper hosting for your website.
- Learn and use social media.
- Learn and use marketing strategies.
- Learn and use SEO for better ranking.
There’s more in the details but this will get you started well on your way, and I do have a place that can help you learn everything I mentioned and more.
Scheduling the Plan
Now having a list of all what you need to do does very little to making anything materialize. Just as you can look at that list, it does nothing for you. Now you can start to search the Internet to start to make sense of it all, but you’ll find like so many others, you may just end up quitting. If you want your goals to be a reality we can not let that happen.
Now is the turning point where you need to consider the only way this will work for your future, is by taking action with a scheduling plan. To have a successful business online, you need to be prepared to work a set amount of hours per week. The more time you have to put into your business, the faster you can make things happen. But even if you are limited in time, you can still make this happen if you stay persistent.
For you to put a schedule together to encompass all the things you need to do on your own, then to schedule all of that into weekly time spots would be extremely hard to accomplish. When your new to all of this the overflow of information and trying to figure out where it all goes will drown most people.
What is required, is having somebody that has already achieved what you are trying to do, then give you each step as they are needed. By taking you from the very beginning to where you need to be, you will progress faster and easier in a shorter time span. That way you do not need to surf the web spending countless hours you probably do not have time to waste, looking for information that you may or may not need.
When you can have a step by step learning process giving you what you need when you need it, all of a sudden what may have taken you 40 hours in one week has now been compressed to two simple hours. Chances are those two hours are probably more productive than the 40 hours of guess work. Learning from those who know, is faster and more productive, they know what they’re doing.
So you can see by only having to schedule for the quality time for learning from those who know, your plan to succeed will increase.
Working the Plan
Working the plan is simply that! The training is all laid out; you just need to set aside devoted time and implement what you learn. You see the way it works is you build your actual business as you go through the lessons and learn.
