Lately more and more people are asking my help on online money making, and I´m no pro:p.So I just send them to Mark Knowles hub Making Money Online and after that I send them to ryankett´s hub My Hubpages AdSense And Amazon Earnings Disclosed, but still I have to explain them what is a backlink and all the basic stuff.So, if you someone(beginner) asks you do explain all the online money making process, what would you answer?
I tell them that to be successful in internet marketing they need to do their homework and figure stuff out for themselves. There's no substitute for experience. I'm not big on spoonfeeding people.
All of super affiliates ($10,000 or more a month in earnings) that I know taught themselves and don't follow gurus or the latest fads.
So true. There is no substitute for experience.
I learned the lesson over the years. I don't follow gurus or the latest fads. But I will tell you that after going through the motions for myself and dozens of trial and errors I've learned so much.
I just recently started to follow and read thisisoli's Hubs. It a real good feeling to read his Hubs and now actually understand what I'm reading. Again, there is no substitute for experience. Great reply.
What a great answer,you are right,2 years ago i didnt know anything about backlinks or rss feeds or seo or anything like that,but by looking at the various forum topics and by reading other peoples hubs on these sorts of topics i have gone from earning nothing to just earning 3 figures a month and thats £ not $ so yes,learn yourself,pick up techniques from thers and constantly learn and improve your knowlege.
I couldn't agree more.
I taught myself what I know by reading hubs and forum posts on the topic that is in question. I simply do a search and start reading.
So a big thank you to all of you in the community for educating me. Although I still have a lot to learn. I personally spend at least a 1/2 hour everyday in "personal development". I read, read, read and learn.
I have a hub on backlinks which pretty much covers that subject
I don't know. It seems that with many, no amount of explanation matters.
I did a hub on why bigger sites reject link requests and I don't think some readers understood it at all.
I have thought about doing a basic, basic, very basic hub on this but it hasn't gelled yet. I just do not know where to begin because so many are so confused and clueless. I know from dealing with neighbors that many don't even understand their browser - it is very common to see people typing "msn.com" into Google because thry just do not know to type it into the address bar.
I have a neighbor who uses Firefox to access gmail and IE to access his yahoo mail. Apoarently his son set up the Firefox with Gmail as the home page because Dad couldn't understand bookmarks! He thinks he has to do it that way and when I told him he could forward his Yahoo to gmail, he saud he wouldn't be able to read it in gmail because Yahoo has to be in IE!
Where do you start? These people need personal attention, I think. Someone needs to sit with them and unravel the tangle of confusion in their minds.
That is true...I am one of those people who need someone to virtually come into my home and walk me through it step by step. Ex: Press enter) It is embarrasing but I know there are plenty of us out there. I still cannot make ups or downs about backlinks, but I'm trying. When you make your basic Hub...let me know!
It can be difficult to learn a totally new "profession" but that is just the way life is. If someone is motivated enough to take the time to read about the various aspects of making money online, then it is OK to point them in the right direction or even help them to understand a specific point.
But if they just want to be spoon fed every last bit of information, the odds that they will do anything useful or productive with it are minimal.
Not everyone can make money online. That is just the way it is.
Learn by doing.
Reading and researching is also doing.
People seem to want to be spoon fed all the info so they can have instant success. The best success comes with experience and time. It's valued and it's valuable.
Many people want to learn it all in a day, and be earning money by the end of the week.
However it takes time. There are things that you simply can't learn overnight. You need to experience it, and experiment. Find the best fit for your own skillset.
Its also down to natural ability. Some people are natural Entrepreneurs and some people aren't. You can only teach people so much.
To make money online you need to be able to write resonable English, have a 'feel' for marketing and some numerical ability.
Making money online is one of the most competitive activities on the planet. Every Hub is head to head against every bit of content on the Internet. If I opened a resturant then it would fail because I can't cook!
