So… what is that make money online secret? By now, you probably already know it. While knowing how to make money at home is no longer a “secret”, it is the implementation of the “secret” that tends to slow people down. It’s all in your implementation. If you already know how making money online works and yet you’re still not making any money, the problem lies somewhere in your implementation (or lack of perhaps).
For those of you who aren’t up on what this make money online secret is, I’ll say it one more time: Find profitable/obtainable niches, center your blogs around those niches’ keywords, get backlinks with the keywords as anchor text, and monetize the blogs with Adsense or affiliate links. It’s so boring and repetitive, but it works.
The problem most people face with following those guidelines is that they keep trying to get fancy and go way off track from the original make money online plan, which is…. If you don’t know, read the previous paragraph again.
Sticking with that same boring agenda day in, day out is the only sure way to making a living online. It couldn’t possibly get any simpler, and yet many people are making it complicated. Stay with your plan and it won’t fail you. It may not be as fast as you would like, but that’s life. There is no such thing as “easy money” or “fast money” in the world of legitimate internet marketing.
Another problem a lot of people have is that they get discouraged too easily. You are not going to rank for the term “make money online” in 1 week – or in 1 month, and probably not even in 1 year (unless you have a lot of friends in the MMO niche who can help you out with backlinks), so stop getting all disappointed when you don’t! Give it time and go for easier niches first. Go for keywords that are in your league and work your way up. Once you have small successes with easy keywords, you will have the confidence and backlink support network available to give you a chance to rank on page 1 of Google for more competitive terms.
The most common question I get when people email me from my make money online ebook website is “How long did it take you to start making a living online?” It took me 2 years. It could take you longer or it could take you less time. It really depends on your level of resourcefulness, your ability to follow a plan, the amount of time you have available to work online, and your persistence. You will be able to make money online, but you have to be willing to do the work and tolerate the waiting period required in order to rank for keywords.
