Ever since I have been online, I have seen so many so-called gurus claim that you can make boatloads of money just by either clicking your mouse a few times and watching money flow out of your computer like a river, or simply using a piece of software that is supposed to either drive highly targeted traffic to your site, or sell affiliate products for you and so on.
Then you have those people who claim that they stumbled onto some secret system that was handed to them on a flash drive that has made them supposedly millions, and they go on to say that you can make the same or even better if you just pay the $49 or so that it costs just to get that supposedly secret system. Now I don’t know about you, but don’t you think that most all of that stuff sounds a bit fishy and deceptive?
One of my favorite ones is when a so-called guru says that you don’t need any skills to make money online, and all you need is their special software and you’re in business! Come on, just who do you think that these charlatans are kidding? Well they are putting the wool over a whole lot of people’s eyes, but for someone who is smart and who has been around the block a time or two can easily see right through these guys and their trickery. I’ll be brutally honest with you here. Anybody who tells you that you do not need any skills to make money online is not a real business owner and all that they’re doing is giving you the business if you know what I mean.
They make all their bold claims of being wildly successful by showing you screenshot after screenshot of their ClickBank accounts and any other accounts that they have to rub it all in your face just to get you to believe that you too can make that same amount or even more. And, if that’s not enough, most all of the videos that I have seen rarely even touch on what it is that you’re supposed to be doing because in most all of those videos, they’re too busy showing you the money. They’re too busy telling you just how wealthy you could be only if you bought into their so-called system, or purchased their secret software that is supposed to drive hoards of traffic to your offers. They make it all sound so very easy to do, and they have their testamonials to back it all up supposedly.
However, I bet on most all of those videos the people that you see are just paid actors including the so-called guru themselves. Why do I believe that? Well for one thing, any guru who is worth their salt will not even think about getting in front of the camera to talk about such junk. A matter of fact, those so-called gurus do just that. They hire out actors to do their video work and present it to the public while they themselves are laughing all the way to the bank because they just pulled the wool over yet another gullible person’s eyes and got their money.
You want to know something else? Most of those systems that are out there have very poor help and support and even if they do offer that, the help and support that you get is from not the guru themselves, but from a trained individual who is also involved in the program too. They are taught to get you to focus upon your dreams of luxury vacations, cars, mansions and anything else that you can possibly think of just to get you to remain in the program. Don’t worry about the money because that’s not the main thing that you need to focus upon with your business.
Instead, focus upon the things that make your business work, such as your customer base. Think of ways that you can give to them exactly what they want and need from you. Don’t focus upon trying to make $30,000 per month especially if you’re just getting out of the starting gate. Sure it is great to dream and such, but dream in reality. Make goals for yourself that are definitely attainable. Don’t worry about the next latest and greatest thing being offered out there because you have enough to deal with in your own business that should keep you focused and on track. Too many people focus too much on the money and not enough on their businesses. That’s why they’re not successful.
If you really want to become successful, then you need to focus on your business and what it needs in order to make it successful. You need to focus on your customers and you need to focus on your products and services that you have to offer to your customers. The money will come if you do these things and do them well. Don’t get caught up in all the hype going round the net today. Act like an entrepreneur and don’t pay those charlatans any mind because you have bigger fish to fry.
Sure making money online isn’t easy, but any good entrepreneur will tell you that. They don’t need to pull the wool over your eyes if they’re honest and sincere entrepreneurs because they have nothing to hide from you. Those that promise you all the wealth in the world do have something to hide because more than likely, they’re not being transparent and honest like they should be.
I am here to tell you that yes, you need skills to work online, and it isn’t as easy as copying and pasting as some of those so-called gurus tell you that it is. It isn’t as easy as sending out an email either, and it definitely isn’t as easy as using your mouse either. There’s lots and lots of very hard work to do to build an online business. And as far as all of this so-called autopilot stuff goes, well it is true that parts of the business does run on autopilot, but not every aspect of it.
Just like any commercial airline, even though the plane has an autopilot system, you still need real pilots to fly the thing now don’t you? Well the same can be said about your online business. Sure there are some areas that can run on autopilot, but the rest has to be done by a real human being because it takes real human beings to create web sites, content and handle customer relations and such just to name a few things here. The autopilot part of the business might be that your site does run online 24-7, and yes people can buy from you while you’re sleeping because all they need to do is to simply visit your site, press an order button and the ordering process takes place without you having to do anything because of the fact that you had set it up that way. So yes, parts of the business can be on autopilot, but not every part of it.
So as you can see here, you do need skills just to build an online business, and don’t let anybody tell you any differently either. Now as far as the money goals, set for yourself realistic monitary goals. Don’t make goals that you know that you will not be able to keep. Set realistic ones that you know that you can attain. Think realistically and rationally and think like a real entrepreneur should think. Don’t think like the charlatans think because that my friend; will only get you into trouble. It is here where you success lies because as long as you think rationally and realistically, you’ll do fine.
