The internet and its potential
In today’s world, the vast majority of people have a computer or a laptop, and an internet connection. Most people, however, don’t really understand to what degree the internet has changed our live and our society.
Over 3.3 billion people are using the internet on a regular basis. Most of them visit the internet every day, spending hours on social media or surfing around looking for information. Over 80% of those people has, at some point, made a purchase online, and many of them even make a habit of purchasing online!
The internet has in fact become a gigantic shopping mall, with unlimited income potential for those who manage to tap into that source.
Surprisingly, the number of people who have taken advantage of this modern age gold rush, has thus far remained relatively small.
Why don’t we take advantage of the internet?
Although the online publicity around the concept of making money online has increased tremendously, the number of people who actually decided to do it and succeeded in it, has remained relatively low.
This is mainly due to 2 reasons.
First of all, there is the fact that creating a truly successful internet business is not as easy as most ads make it seem, and it also takes much more time and effort than most people expect and are willing to invest in it.
This results in statistics which are, truth be told, more positive than those of real life businesses, but which also show that the number of really successful people is very limited.
The second reason is the overall negative attitude towards creating a business in general, and online businesses in particular. This is an attitude which has been created over the last 300 years, in order to support a corporate society.
It is the idea that any form of business is very risky, and requires high intelligence, extremely hard work and a strong dose of good luck. Any business model which dares to insinuate the contrary, is therefore considered impossible, or rooted in crime!
And yet, reality shows that even people with rather low intelligence can create a successful online business, without the need for extreme efforts.
Efforts must be made off course! No viable business can be created without a decent amount of efforts, and even an internet business requires some level of mental abilities.
How to tap into the wealth
There are many different ways to start a business online, but probably the most popular one is affiliate marketing. This is the promoting of products, for which you receive commissions when sales are made.
And although most people will need to master a series of new skills in order to make it a success, the vast majority of people does have the necessary mental abilities to achieve this.
What most of them do not have, is the necessary drive and will to do what it takes in order to achieve success!
This too, however, is something which can be learned and mastered.
The theory behind affiliate marketing may seem easy, but there’s a lot to be learned if you really want to be successful at it.
Much more than just a few people became millionaires with affiliate marketing and other kinds of online businesses. But many more gave up or only realized a moderate success.
