There was a time when I had no idea how I could earn money on the net. I had just purchased my computer and got an internet connection. I knew nothing about internet beyond checking my mail and do search.
I do not remember how I got started but after a while I started searching for money earning opportunities on the net. I would sit and search for long hours every day. I would search till my eyes get sore. I was wasting my time but I did not know. Everyday I would search and click new sites.
I laugh now at what I searched for! I would type ‘Earn without investment’, ‘Money on the net’ etc. etc. I did not want to invest. I wanted free money. Are you laughing with me!
Search for these terms and see. You get tons of results but nothing is actually what it promises.
Then I got something. I came to know about ‘Get paid programs’. Wow! Finally I would be paid for doing nothing (Are you sure you do nothing. Just calculate the amount of time you spend to earn a pittance. Even if you make few cents it is not guaranteed that you will ever lay your hands on that. )
Excited I joined many. Everyday I opened my mail box and clicked. Everyday before sleeping I checked my accounts and calculate how much I made.
A number of months passed before my slumber broke. I was getting sick of this clicking and checking the timers and not being paid that pittance I earned with so much labor. I was disappointed and disillusioned too. But I could not give up. Idea of making money from computer just did not leave me.
I needed to change my attitude.
Some more research took me to the level where I could start my home business with some investment. I did fumble in the beginning being new to internet marketing. But I worked and things became better. I am now where I had dreamed only…. ‘Earning money from my computer at my home’
I wasted quite a lot of time due to my ignorance and hunt for free money. I still remember that period when I would spend hours to earn few cents. Just because I did not want to take the risk of investing
There will be many a people who were more informed when they started their business. But there are lots of people who are still going round and round while making nothing out of their time consuming activity.
I wish I could speak to them and warn them.
Stop wasting your time on get paid programs and stuff like that. You will not make anything that can be called money. Are you satisfied with the pittance they offer?
Majority of them are scams. Genuine programs cannot afford to give you more than few cents per day. If you want to make good money you should start your own home based business. A business that would earn you actual money. A business that would earn what you work for.
I would recommend to start with affiliate programs as they provide you with readymade product and you have to deal with marketing part only. If you are new to the marketing like I was affiliate programs will give you good launch pad. When you advance you will get aware of your interests. You can work on your products while you learn about the basics.
Your time is a precious.
Are you wasting it on a worthless pursuit?
Please do not.
