What are the Truth, Lies, and Video of online income? Can I make money? I say… Yes, you can!!
Truth Defined: verified facts of an event or acceptance
Lie Defined: Recline, relax, and lie back
To falsify the truth
Video Defined: the recording, reproducing, or broadcasting of moving visual images
You can make money online. People are doing it everywhere!
The truth… it takes time. How long? That depends on you, your content, and your niche.
Look at it this way:
I built a ‘physical’, or ‘brick and mortar’ business, from the ground up. This took years to establish! (It also took years to tear down).
Year One to Year Three
Pounding the pavement, with business cards in hand, I networked. Giving, and leaving my business card to anyone who would take it.
Meeting with Chiropractors, Doctors, Physical Therapists, and many other medical Professionals, telling them what I did, what my mission was, how I could aid their patients, and what my treatment goals were for each individual.
Marketing the cheapest was possible. Way, way, back in the day that was the Phone Book. (These were books that held phone numbers and addresses of people and businesses that were in certain areas). Relics of the past, and yet the best tool of the time!
Marketing today is as simple as a Website, it can be a ‘local’ site, or as broad as the World for reach.
Growth was a slow process. Building daily. One Client here, one there. Always building…. The two clients, and three…. Until I reached five clients per day, 5-6 days a week!
It took 3 years to get to 30 clients a week. By year four I was booking 3 to 6 weeks in advance, depending on
Years Four to Ten
This is when I decided to open my own Health Spa. At the start I had three Therapists, by year 6, I had to expand. Now I had 8 Therapists, and everyone had the potential to succeed. And yet, not all did. Why? The ‘business’ was going strong, we had clients, and more than enough to ‘go around’ as it were.
Everyone will succeed because of your work. Not so.
I had Therapists that were hardly ever at the Spa. They just didn’t want to work. They wanted to be paid, but not to work… I think that’s what is now being called New Math. (Correct me if I’m wrong on that).
Relying on my advertising, my networking, and my overflow, there were some that didn’t put in their own ‘blood, sweat, and tears’ to build themselves a loyal clientele.
How does this apply to Online Income?
Great question!!! Glad you asked!
The Truth and Lies of Online Income
It takes time, commitment, blood, sweat, and a few tears. If there’s a promise of immediate success with NO commitment, chances are, the truth has been falsified.
Online Income is possible if you have the drive to work at it. You have to make the time, to research, write, create, and build… from there, anything is possible.
How Long Will it Take?
Another great question!
My first answer is… nothing happens overnight. If you’re expecting immediate success, walk away now. Online Entrepreneurship is not going to work for you.
As with anything, it depends. There are some who can make a good income within 6 months, at 4-10 hours a week, because they hit the right niche, at the right time.
As I mentioned in You, Me, and Affiliate Marketing post, while these niches are hot, they are very competitive. If you have a ‘Health Site’, though, you can niche it down. In other words a niche within a niche. (In truth, every niche, has so many ‘
You just have to STAND OUT a bit further than the ‘competition’. What do you offer that the others don’t?
The Next Big Thing?
You guessed it…. VIDEO!!
The youngest YouTube Sensation is 6 years old… he made $11 Million in 2018! That’s NOT a typo… $11 Million!
How? He does toy reviews for kids, and gets paid to do it! (I’m thinking of ‘employing’ my Grandchild)!
I’m not telling you that you will make $11 Million this year, I’m telling you that anything is possible.
Video Marketing is now, statistically, 80% of the online marketplace. Most people remember video’s that they’ve seen, as opposed to what they read. (Hello YouTube)!!
Online Income Simplified
There is money to be made online, just don’t expect it to happen overnight. It could take a few months, or over a year to build your brand, your niche, and your site. So I encourage patience when you take this on.
Don’t get caught up in the big promises that some Marketing Sites make. I don’t want to be a ‘naysayer’ here, but, remember, “If it sounds too good to be true… it probably is.”
