Why You Are Not Making Money Online And How You Can

This is a guest post compiled by +Oscar Frank  for OgbongeBlog

It is quite obvious that the number of people coming into the blogosphere and other online money making scheme today is on the rise, and this is simply because they all have the same mindset of it been the fastest and best way to make quick money.

One thing they fail to realize is, just like every other business, you have to dedicate your time and energy to attain success. In fact, patience is one characteristic you must have if you are to become a successful business personnel online.

There are quite a number of ways to make money online, and today I’ll give you reasons why you haven’t made a dollar and the various strategies you can apply in order to earn huge income and become your own boss.

Why Not Making Money

Why You Are not Making Money Online

Below are the reasons you have not been successful with your online business schemes

1. You Are Trying To Do Everything

This actually happened to me when I ventured into the online business world. Imagine reading a couple of articles by the so called gurus back then of how they made money blogging, doing affiliate marketing, selling their products and all that. You simply get confused and would imagine doing all so you can make the huge sum income all at once.

This isn’t a nice strategy because, you end up splitting your resources to various projects and none of them would ever grow to become successful. This is one major problem Newbies face and should be avoided if you wish to become successful online.

2. You Are Busy Buying Everything and Attending All Make Money Online Seminars

I’m not trying to say that buying ebooks or attending make money online seminars are wrong. But if you are going to start a particular business online, it is advisable you buy ebooks pertaining to the business you are venturing into. For instance, let’s say you are about to venture into blogging, you do not have to buy eBooks related to affiliate marketing for a start, you are to learn the basics of blogging before talking of affiliate marketing.

By the way, if you are busy attending those so called Make Money Online seminars, when are you going to have the time to implement the things you’ve learnt so far. Concentrate on one aspect of making money online and have your interest in buying things related to that subject matter alone.

3. You Are Lazy

This might not apply to everyone anyway, but this is definitely true for most people. One thing I can for sure say is hardwork pays a great deal. You do not expect someone who spends sleepless nights trying to promote their business to end up with same results as the other person who snores all through the night.

It is important you scout for different strategies to improve your money making niche, this would improve your productivity and earnings in the long run if properly implemented.

4. You Are Not Patient

As with every good thing, they say, Nothing Good Comes Easy of which this is also true when it comes to making money online. You must learn how to be patient and work hard to achieving success. I remember when I ventured into blogging; it took me about 10 months before I received my first Adsense Cheque. This was sometime 2 years ago.

Most people quite because they do not endure to the end. Now I’m really happy earning money online.

Surefire Ways That Make Me Money Online

  4. Great post Oscar. Recently, I responded to Derek Halpern on my blog when he shared "how you can make $10,000.00" per month. The reason people do not make any money online is because is simple. They do not understand that, to make money, you have to find people's problem and provide the solution.

    I run a blog. But, I am the first person to say that you can not make money blogging. Reason is simple, you are not providing the painkiller for people's problem at a cost.
