Why it can be detrimental to try and make quick money online

There seems to be a problem with new entrepreneurs and them
wanting to make quick money online.  But
who can blame them with the amount of false advertising and scams spread across
the internet.  All over you will see ads
claiming you can get rich quick or make thousands of dollars in the first
week.  But is this really true?

The problem is it is far from being true and can actually be
detrimental to you and your business. 
What ends up happening is people expect to make quick money online and
go from rags to riches overnight.  Then
when they don’t see results in the first week or two, they begin to question
themselves and internet marketing.


Another problem is people believe they don’t have to put in
the effort to get rich quick.  They
believe it will come to them without actually doing any work.  This too leads to little results and a lot of


Sadly, the end result is people wind up quitting far too
soon before they get to see what the internet truly has to offer.  The internet is filled with possibilities and
opportunities to venture into.  Quitting
after the first couple of weeks is giving up far too soon.  If you want to have success on the internet
you have to be patient and willing to put in the effort.


It is frustrating putting in the effort and seeing little to
no results after the first few weeks but it takes time to make money on the
internet.  Sure there are the
opportunities that can get you money immediately like filling out surveys and getting
paid to submit but this is not going to get you enough money to brag about.


It takes time to build up a steady business and have
success.  You have to create the content,
build a web site that is visually appealing, market the business, and then deal
with all of the visitors that come.  Each
one of these facets is extremely time consuming, which is why it is virtually
impossible to make quick money online.


It’s a great shame, I think, that way too many people these
days need to make a lot of money now. They are in a hole and believe that the
hype they see about making big money quick will solve their pain. In the
majority of cases, it won’t.


I see these people jumping from one offer to another in the
hope that this one will make the money they need. Unfortunately what happens
all too often is that they end up still doing the same thing a year later,
still not making money, but deeper in debt.


This is a tragedy and in my view is totally unnecessary. If
more people explained that it is possible to make good money on the Internet
but like any real business, it takes time, there would be a lot less heartache.


Unless you have been on the internet for years and already
have a developed customer base, do not expect to make money online quick.  There are some tactics that will make some
money here and there, and sometimes very quickly, but most are not sustainable.


The road to Internet success is to treat it like a real
business. Build a solid foundation, build a reputation for providing service
and quality and develop a loyal following of visitors and customers who respect
you and like what you do. 


If you are patient and stick it out during the frustrating early
days, you will benefit greatly from the numerous opportunities the internet has
to offer.
