Use Your Passions To Make Money Online
by Steve Lonewolf
To make money on the internet many people jump right in before they are properly prepared. You know that to be a construction worker, an office worker, a teacher, a real estate agent, there are prerequisites, things you must learn, before they can be successful, you don't just jump right in unprepared.
It applies to the Internet marketing industry as well even though there are unethical people out there who'd have you believe it's a "cake walk" and requires no or little effort on your part. And I'll admit, it is a cake walk compared to what you have to deal with in the working world punching a clock working for someone who does not have your interests in mind, but there are still requirements you have to follow and pitfalls you must prevent to actually make Internet marketing work for you.
Most people will not make any money online however, there are others who will make more money in one month than most make in a year. Why is that? One thing I know for sure is that for you to make money online you must first have a passion for the products and/or service you expect to make money with.
Passion in this sense simply means that you've evaluated and like the company and products or services. It is then that you translate that like (or Passion) into the research, enthusiasm and work that usually accompany Passion.
I have to say that many online entrepreneurs are so good at what they do that they disregard passion because they can sell "ice to an Eskimo". But I'm concerned about those who are not so familiar at working a successful online business.
Now, I'm not trying to make anyone believe that Passion is the only thing necessary. Because to be successful you must also have a good website, good marketing, widespread advertising, company support, effective keywords, etc. Those things are often acquired from the company you join - but sidestep Passion and you reduce your chances for success dramatically. It therefore follows that, if you have no Passion for the company and the products and services provided by that company, again, you won't attempt to do the work you are being taught.
Internet marketing work is typically not all that difficult or time consuming but it does take motivation caused by Passion to get you off and running with a sustained effort so that you won't stumble.
You have a great resource in the Internet search engines to search about the Internet Marketing industry for business opportunities, USE IT!
Your research should uncover a company that you like and have confidence or knowledge in. It should be solid, established on great principles, and easy to understand with great products and services that are sell-able for which you have Passion. If you don't passionate about it move on, you can find the right opportunity containing the attributes identified above.
Comments like, "well, that one sounds good and the compensation plan is excellent so I guess I'll start that business " does not sound like a decision based on anything near Passion. And remember when you hear that an Internet "guru" does that, don't be tempted, because as I said earlier they are experienced and can sell just about anything, without being Passionate about the company products and services.
Note: By the way it's your goal to get to the point where you can sell about anything online. That end skill and goal is a worthy one indeed.
Remember, there are numerous steps you must take before you step into any Internet Marketing business but, if you don't find the right company products and services to be passionate about, all of those other steps may just cause you a lot of frustration instead of bringing you great success. Not being Passionate about a company's products or services that has market proof that it will sell is a pitfall you simply must avoid.
