Yesterday I met up with two ex-students, that is to say they finished their college course a few months ago and are now struggling to find work. I discussed at length with them how they could use their skill sets to freelance and make way more money working for themselves if they were prepared to put in a little effort and that since the job market is as bleak as it is in the UK right now it is something they should consider.
They got excited for a moment...
Until that is they realized they'd actually have to do something.
And there lies the problem...
They want a job because its no effort other than turning up and doing their 9 - 5 stint.
They want money but they don't want to actually have to put any real effort into getting it.
And the sad thing - it's the same for most of the guys who try to get into Internet Marketing.
Most of them look to IM because they think there are magic pieces of software where you just push a button, sit back and a few hours later their paypal account is stuffed with cash.
Making money online isn't hard. But it does require some effort.
Oh and it will require some investment too. Why is that people think internet marketing is this magical business unlike any other that you can somehow start for absolutely free and magically make a million bucks?
I don't care how much or how little time you have, as long as you put the time you do have to good use and as long as you invest in yourself in the right way - you almost cannot fail to make money in IM.
