Internet Business Opportunities-Are They Real

Updated on September 12, 2009

Internet Business Opportunities-Ho Hum

Day in and day out we are engulfed in Internet business opportunities.  in fact we see so many of them that we have just started to ignore them.  It's like they aren't even there.  We see them for a split second in our inbox and the next second we hit delete and boom they are gone.

For most people these are the driest emails they could get.  They all say the same thing and make the same claims over and over.

Make money in your pyjamas

Make easy money

Make money today and so on and so on.  The reason we don't even bother looking at them anymore is because they are all the same.  It seems lately if you have seen one opportunity you have seen them all.  For the most part this is true.  Every week all we see is rehashed trivial and mostly garbage that the gurus claim will make you rich.

Internet Business Opportunities-The Truth

When it comes to succeeding with Internet business opportunities the truth is most people will never make it. Oh sure many will keep trying but it just wont happen.

Im sorry to have to break that news to you but it really is better than lieing to you and telling you that you can be a millionaire by the time you wake up on the weekend. Dont you wish the gurus would have admitted this before you spent hundreds and thousands of dollars on all the opportunities.

There is one other problem when it comes to making it with internet business opportunities. That problem is you. Oh great now you are thinking what the heck is this idiot talking about. Well please hear me out before you find me and tar and feather me. I think once you hear my explanation you will say hey that makes sense.

Internet Business Opportunities-Okay Tell Me

I hate to tell you this but even some of the crazy stuff the gurus are putting out can make you a lot of money if you are willing to do what it takes.

The problem is that people make 2 big mistakes.  The first one is that they give up too soon and the second is they jump from opportunity to opportunity without giving anything a chance to work.  Too many people think they should be making money overnight and when they don't they get all upset and start yelling scam.

While there are many scams on the Internet and trust me in my early days of marketing I bought a lot of them only to find out all I was doing was helping make some scum pond sucker rich.  Did I learn?  Hell no, all I did was continue spending and spending and failing and failing.  Hell there was one time I even figured out that I bought the same eBook twice.

So was it really the gurus fault or was it mine.  I say it was my fault because at the end of the day ignorance really isnt an excuse for my own stupidity.

I continued on like that until one day I decided either i quit and give up or I take one opportunity and run with it until I make money and that was simply how I started making money with an Internet business opportunity.

Internet Business Opportunity-What Should You Do

At the beginning of this Hub I mentioned that almost no one will ever succeed when it comes to earning online.  That really is good news for the ones that do want to succeed.  You see it gives you more room to take care of the business you need to do.

Whats more important is that you really have to understand what it takes to succeed.  you need to be willing to put in the time, effort, patience and anything else that will ensure that you make it.  What this means is that if you decide to never give up then there is a good chance that you could be one of the ones that actually make it on the internet.

You will have to commit yourself to learning, make sure you decide exactly what you are going to do and stick with it.

Something else important to know is that you will never get rich when it comes to your Internet business opportunity.  Oh sure a hand full of people will become millionaires but they are always the exception to the rule.

One other thing and what I consider to be the most important is to always be honest with the people you are trying to develop a relationship with.  if you are trying to sell them something make sure it is something you have studied entirely and something you truly believe in.  If you ignore this you will most likely go no where in a hurry.

So if you plan to succeed then make sure you tell yourself this and stick to it.

You will need to understand what you are doing and you will need to learn that from someone you can trust.

As a new internet marketer you also want training that you can afford.  What you need to do is take a look at what taught me Internet Business Opportunity.

      You are so right traffic. I actually have a few people who work with me exclusively and the ones who are actually listening to my advice are starting to see a little reward.

      Thanks for the comment and will take a look at your hubs

      Unfortunately you are completely right in the fact that most who begin an internet business will never make any real money. While part of the reason does come down to the fact that people just don't stick around to bring the business to fruition, there is also another side to it.

      I have been an internet marketer since 1998. I lost quite a bit of money in the first few years simply because of a lack of clear information on how to succeed. Sure there were a ton of "gurus" who claimed to be making 6 and 7 figure incomes and had nifty 'screen shots' to prove it but when you asked them how they did it (in a step by step manner) most either couldn't tell you or simply wouldn't give away their 'secrets'.

      People are suffering from information overload. Everywhere they look they are being constantly bombarded with information on making money from home but what they aren't being told is the truth.

      The truth is that it IS hard work to get any business to turn a profit. If you're not willing to commit at least the first year to your business it simply won't go anywhere. People also have to learn to sift through the garbage in order to find the gold nuggets. Take the lessons that you learn and apply them immediately to your business. Give them the time to see if they work. If they don't, trash them and move on to the next. Don't try to take the advice of 50 people all at once. Find one mentor who's worth their weight in gold, learn everything you can from them, apply their lessons to your business and go from there.

      Thanks BC a real compliment coming from you. Yes it is hard when working full time but its what you make of those 2 hours. It may take a bit longer but you will see the rewards from your efforts.

      Very true. I totally agree with everything you stated above. I don't know if you have seen my hubs about the Home Alliance program. However yes this at home business opportunity. At first I started doing everything wrong. it might still seem to some that this is a bad choice to turn to. However I gave up very early, now they have expanded and have dedicated time to put this into process. The best advice would be to tell everyone that if you are going to invest money into these kind of programs, do you research and make damn well sure that you are going to motivate yourself. Thanks Dale for a very good article.

      Thanks for the kind words. I do quite well in affiliate marketing but I am sure I will never be a millionaire. The thing is I can go to bed at night and know I helped people out instead of throwing a scam at them.
