Staying Motivated To Make Money Online

Saturday, December 8th, 2007

Since there are thousands of systems out there telling people how to make money online, there must be many thousands of people interested in doing it. I know I am! And as appealing as it sounds to earn a living online, losing momentum will occur from time to time. You hit a snag, a setback, a problem that just won't go away, and suddenly things seem bleak. How can you get back your mojo?

One thing I've found that helps me build enthusiasm is to think of the idea of success. What does success mean to you? What I usually imagine is a scenario in which I've got money coming in on autopilot from the net. And not just a trickle of cents from somewhere. I mean substantial income, enough that I don't really have to worry about financial security.

Money on autopilot!! Don't we all wish. But that wish can keep dreams alive.

Can you see how great achieving that would be? Imagine you've finally done it, you've finally set a system in place or built a website that is extremely easy to maintain, and is a guaranteed generator of revenue. You're making money while you eat breakfast, while you visit with friends, while you watch TV. You make money while you're sleeping! Awesome!!

Ideas like that keep me motivated. I believe there's actually a motivational concept behind that relating to "experiencing results in advance." You get to live your dream in your mind, which keeps you motivated to make that dream come true.

Part of what also appeals to me and motivates me about making money on the internet is the comparison with winning the lottery. The differences and similarities are really interesting. Both ideas pretty much entail financial freedom. If you can successfully make money online, you're pretty much set. If you win the lottery, you're golden! But the lottery is a finite prize. And in the end, the most you can do to ensure success in that area is to buy tickets and hope for the best. But the internet is different. You've got the power. Success is up to you. And if and when you do make it, the possibilities are limitless. You're not tied to a predetermined amount of winnings. If lighting strikes you online, you could potentially make billions. That may be remote, but only slightly more remote than winning the lottery, and a jackpot online is a thousand times greater.

So how do you stay motivated, even when things aren't working out? Think of all the potential wonders and benefits that will come of your success. Just the idea of financial freedom can be a huge motivation to keep working toward your goals.

I Bought the "Day Job Killer"

Sunday, December 2nd, 2007

I don’t normally buy a lot of ebooks, but a few months ago I decided to get myself a copy of “Day Job Killer.” Part of the reason I bought it was because the web site was saying how some “whiz kid” teamed up with a guy and found all the secrets to making money online. I thought, “Come on, what secrets?” And besides, who in their right mind with the kind of information that allows someone to make literally thousands of dollars a day would be willing to share?

But I kept wondering. Maybe there were secrets out there that I just didn’t know. So I thought, what the heck, I’ll buy this book, give it a quick read, and hopefully learn a thing or two. Well, it took a little longer to read than I expected, since the copy I got was 69 pages long. As Bill and Ted would say, “69, dudes!”

Anyway, I was surprised to learn some things in that book that I hadn’t ever heard of before. There really were secrets out there, if you can consider something you personally don’t know a secret. But maybe lots of other people didn’t know that stuff either. That could very well be, since much of it wasn’t obvious. I mean it made sense once you thought about it, but it’s too intricate to spontaneously occur to most people. Well, to me at least.

So what secrets did I learn? Well, I learned a trick for getting your Google AdWords ads to the top of pages without simply throwing gobs of money at your campaign. I learned ways to think outside the box when it comes to finding sources of traffic to your site. I learned a method that can be used to convince the buyer of a product to go through you, the affiliate, instead of right to the source. That way you earn commissions on sales that are practically guaranteed. And I learned some devious ways to use affiliate links.

I don’t think I ever would have come up with those ideas on my own, and I haven’t read anything like them anywhere else. I think the information must be the kind that is kept hush-hush outside of the guidebooks themselves, since it’s somewhat sneaky, and can be highly effective in the right hands. It’s like why tell your opponents the secret to your success? At least charge for it.

I tried a few of the techniques, the ones I was comfortable with, and I got some mild results. I could have tried using everything I had learned, but a couple of the tricks didn’t fit how I thought of myself. I think another reason I wasn’t immediately successful was because I didn’t take the extra steps to research things a bit more. I was in the mood for fast results, so I limited myself to just going the basic route. I think the guys that make the most money using the techniques in Day Job Killer are the ones who go the extra mile and tweak everything.

That’s probably why the creators are willing to sell the info. If most people don’t do what it takes to make the systems work, then the people who do have nothing to worry about. No competition.
