It’s late at night, and i just got done watching a ballistics special on the history channel. It was pretty awesome. I didn’t realize how advanced and creative some of the ancient weaponry were. Right after that documentary was over, a get rich with Ebay informercial came on.
I realized that all of these informercial work the same way. They repeat how much people make with these programs. They talk about how easy it is. To people who are not familiar with Ebay or making money online, it almost makes sense.
Get rich with real estates. Get rich with Ebay. Get rich placing classifed ads. Get rich Blogging. These are all scams. First off, if you have to pay to learn these so called secrets, you’re already being ripped off. Secondly, if you think you’re going to get rich with any of the above, you must be retarded. Think about it. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial that you didn’t regret. I have a cheap plastic food processor that doesn’t work in my kitchen cabinet cause my wife was brain dead for a few min while watching one of those suckers. I bought quarters online. Quarters man! I bought something that’s worth 25 cents for like 20 dollars. I must be retarded.
These scams work because its late at night. When it’s dark and you’re sleepy, it’s possible go brain dead. Blogging works similarly. Watch out for bloggers who promise you riches. Watch out for websites with testimonials. If there’s a testimonial somewhere on the product page, don’t buy it.
With that said, i want to say that, if you work at it, making money online is possible. You can make money with Ebay. Sure! Why not! But you won’t get rich off it. The people who get rich off of ebay are people who sell “get rich with Ebay” books. Same thing with make money bloggers. The guys that make the big bucks in this niche are selling this dream. You won’t learn anything on these blogs.
Make it realistic. Have realistic goals. Decide that you want to make 100 dollar/month with your blog. Do that and then move up to 300. This is all possible. It’s not very difficult either. Then you can shoot for 1000. My blog is capping at around 2000. I don’t think i’ll be able to make more then that every month. So if i want to increase my blogging income, i’ll look to increase the earning on another blog. If bloggernoob maintains 2k/month, i’ll just grow another blog to this level. 3 or 4 of these blogs is pretty good for income right? Not gonna be easy and it won’t make me rich. But if you fail, you don’t lose out on any money. Cause you didn’t buy some stupid ebook. And you probably make a few hundred along the way. This is how you should approach making money online.
