Have you ever told your significant other that you want to work from home and make money online, only to have her say “Work from home? Business success online is a myth, darling - get a real job!" Unfortunately, even today many still believe that when you work from home, business success will amount to little more than $10-$50 a month (maybe $100 if you're very lucky). The goal of this article is to dispel three of the most popular myths about working from home and earning money online.
1. “Don't Work from Home - Business Success is Impossible Online"
This statement is just plain untrue, pure and simple. There are people out there who earn hundreds of thousands a year every day by selling products online - and I happen to know some of them. In fact, the Internet is very profitable, because once you have an electronic product like an e-book, you can sell additional copies of it at no extra cost (compared to physical products, where you have to pay for raw materials for every copy you make).
2. “You Need to Spend a Lot of Money to be Successful Online"
Again, this is completely untrue! Although buying a domain name, a hosting package and list management software such as Aweber will help, none of that is necessary. In fact, one of the easiest ways to get started in affiliate marketing is by using the so-called “bum marketing" method which does not require you to spend anything upfront. In short, if you want to work from home, business success is possible without any investments.
3. “You Can't Make a Lot of Money Online"
Yet another completely incorrect statement. Most people who believe that you can't make a fortune online still think that working on the Internet involves completing surveys and reading ad e-mails. Yes, these methods won't make your rich - but you don't have to follow them! Article writing, copywriting, affiliate marketing and Adsense minisites are just some of the ways to get rich online. If you work from home, business success is achievable using many different ways - and you will make a lot in the process.
4. “Making Money Online is Easy"
This is unfortunately another popular myth, spread by people who have no idea just how time-consuming working online is. Yes, the payoffs are great - for example, it's not impossible to earn $2,000 in your first month, but when you work from home, business success require you to invest a lot of time and effort. Expect 14 hour working days and many setbacks before you finally achieve your goal.
In short, when you work from home, business success is absolutely possible - and don't let anyone convince you otherwise! However, be prepared to work long and hard to get there - just like in the physical world, success does not come overnight. Still, those prepared to put in the work required will find themselves rewarded with financial independence and, in the long run, a much more flexible time schedule. Start to work from home - business success awaits you!
