This time I want to touch on a topic that is usually less addressed and that is the culture of making money from the internet. It’s no secret that the niche of making money from home has a bad name. There is a lack of trust among people who do not know the subject in depth or those who do not really deal with it on a daily basis, who claim that all people who claim that money can be made from the internet are charlatans or that very few people actually make money (and sometimes the real money they describe is How to make money from the internet).
One of the reasons for the bad name is that many times the way of selling courses for making money from the internet is waving lifestyle or screenshots of large sums of money. But, what these Ads do not show is the expenses and after all profits is income less expenses. Another thing that these Ads do not show is the hard work required to be very successful in the field of making money from the Internet. These people take courses; they invest advertising budgets of thousands of dollars a month on sponsored campaigns on Facebook or elsewhere and another large investment that is usually not displayed.
Because a lot of people sign up for their courses and dream of insane successes as presented to them and usually do not really invest thousands of hours of work and thousands of dollars a month on sponsored advertising they start to get lukewarm results at best or fail completely at worst. A consequence of this is that today there is thousands of disappointed people that invested their money but did not succeed. Some of those disappointed react on social media against and create the bad name.
Now I want to try to make an order, because I think a lot of people are missing out on an amazing field. To make money online satisfactorily you need to look at the subject as a professional field and you need to be professionals. This is like setting up any other business. Think that if you opened a store, you would invest in rent, store design, furniture, computing, advertising, salaries and more. These are usually not small sums of money. So if you want to be a professional in the field of making money online you need to be willing to invest, prepare a neat business plan, give an estimate of expenses and income and more. Also study time and investment time to work from home through the internet should be taken into account. Define for yourself the cost of an hour of work and what it takes to cover it (think that if you were an employee at the time you would be working a job that was worth every hour worked and you probably want not to earn less). With such an approach, it is right to start learning the field.
Working from home has many consequences and it is important to be aware of them. Usually people who work from home work in an environment that is less surrounded by other people and can experience loneliness. Beyond that, all the temptations that are in the house, TV, bed, food, etc . Some people need a boss to act and some suffer from procrastination.
In conclusion, the purpose of this post is to try to put in a professional mind when approaching the field of making money online. Do not be tempted by blasted promises and learn and examine the field well, without disqualification. Come with a clear mind and you will gain an amazing field. Good luck!
