How to Really Get Started Online
I always say that making money online isn’t hard – but it requires hard work. Hard work like trying to find out the best way to do certain things and how to really expand, and succeed. If I had to start all over again I’d do a lot of things differently – and I mean a lot of things. But we all have to suffer our own setbacks to really appreciate how far we’ve come. (Or so I’m told at least;-) So here’s what I would do if I was completely new to making money online.
1) Visit Forums.
Money making forums can be great. Although most people will be completely new like you there will be some people making some pretty great money willing to help you. Don’t start posting and asking questions right away. Take some time to understand the culture and to go through all the threads and posts.
2) Find Some Blogs.
There are plenty of great make money online blogs out there. Some are good – some are bad. Find some good ones by searching Google and start reading through the posts and understanding the different ways to make money online.
3) Join Some Lists.
Some internet marketers have mailing lists. To entice you into joining these mailing list they’ll give away a free e-book or video – join a few really good lists and read, or watch the free material you get.
Being on these lists can really help you understand what people do, and how much money they make doing it. (Witch can give you a good idea as to whether you want to try to do the same method.)
4) Buy A Product.
This is optional. Up till now you haven’t spent a dime. I’m not big into buying products at all – but sometimes buying a product is the easiest way to get the information you need, without searching for hours and hours.
If you don’t want to buy a product just keep doing steps 1-3 and then focus on step 5.
5) Just Do It.
Tons of people gain a great knowledge of how to make money online – but very few actually do it and put what they’ve learned into practice! So once you are comfortable just do it, doing it is the best way to learn and grow.
