Wouldn't we all like a little extra income?
For some, it may be because every month is a stretch to make the paycheck cover day to day expenses.
For others it could be that they've already got a strict budget and want a little money to enjoy a few luxuries here and there.
It's easier than you think, but you need to know how
I actually make a full time income on the internet, and to me, I can see how someone could easily learn to earn extra income in their free time. There are a few misconceptions I'd like to get out of the way first, and then I'll jump into what steps you need to take to get started.
1. It's easy
Depending on your personal background (education, hobbies, skills), making some extra dough on the internet could be a real challenge. It might also be easy for you – some people start making money within 2-4 weeks of starting their first website.
It's different for everyone.
Most people try out a few money making schemes, and after those fail, they give up and write off the whole business as a ‘scam'. There are plenty of scams out there, but it's going to take some patience to make this thing work.
2. It's fast
I mentioned above that some people start making money in a few weeks. Remember that others take 6 months to a year to really get a grip on what works and what doesn't.
For some reason, people think that making money on the internet should come fast, or not at all. In my experience, it takes a period of learning from mistakes before you can get a successful money-making venture going.
From my story, you'll know that it took me 3 months to make my first $5, and about 6 months before I was regularly making commissions, something that you might be looking for. Now I do it full time, but I put in a lot of hours ‘behind the scenes' before some cash starting flowing into my Paypal account!
3. You need to be a computer expert
Much of the website creation process is automated nowadays, and you can actually build a complete, ready to use website in about 30 seconds.
Of course, you'll need to add content, pictures, and change the site to fit your individual needs, which will require learning some new skills, but nothing is impossible if you decided to sit down and LEARN.
People forget that you don't have to be born a computer genius to be able to use one proficiently. There are ABSOLUTELY TONS of free resources available online teaching you how to do just about anything.
If you put in a bit of time, and just a little bit of effort, you can learn the skills needed to build a website, get traffic to it, and start making money from it.
More Stuff I'd Like To Tell You
In the video below there's a few more things I'd like to tell you about earning extra income in your free time. Rather than write it all out, I think it'll be cool to show you in a video. You'll get to meet me, and it'll cut down on your reading time.
I've been working on my YouTube channel, doing this thing called “30 Days of Online Business” where I talk about things like making money online. Anyway, here's the video.
