How long to make money

How long does it take to make money online

One of the main questions asked for anybody wanting to make money online is how long will it take.  This of course depends on what you want to do.  To make money really fast I would still say set up an account on Ebay and sell items that you have in the house.  Anything you no longer need will probably sell if it is in fair condition.  As you probably know there are some people that make a great living doing this.

I myself have had an account on Ebay since 2004 and I still have a 100% feedback record, that I am really proud of.

I have sold thousands of pounds worth of French Reproduction furniture for instance.  Amazon again is a great place to start, and again a lot of people make their living solely on Amazon.

Why I got fed up with Amazon and Ebay

Myself i actually got a bit fed up with the way that both Amazon and Ebay treated their suppliers, namely us ! –  I felt that the commissions that they both wanted were very expensive. I also know that the customer is always right but Amazon take this too far in my opinion.

I have been scammed out of hundreds of pounds, and there was simply nothing I could do.  So I looked at other avenues.

I have always been interested in Affiliate Marketing. I found promoting a good product was a really “clean” way of making a living, nobody pretending they have not received their item, saying it is damaged when it not, the colour is wrong etc. Dealing with returns in furniture in particular is really difficult. I still sell the furniture but it is not easy.

Promote a Good Product, its that easy

I found that if you promoted a good product, it is a very simple and effective way to make a living.  The devil is in the detail though obviously. I cant stress enough that the product or firm that you are promoting must be GOOD, otherwise the customer quite rightly will request a refund.

Most people will pay by Paypal or a Credit Card, so getting a refund for inferior products is easy, as it should be.

Traditional Bricks and Mortar Business or Online ?

What most people do is compare the time needed to build a traditional business to the time needed to build an online business. I would say both can take a long time, but online can be much quicker if you know what you are doing and have good training.

So in my opinion the Good Product you need is right here !

I only promote  programs online that I totally believe in and the main one I promote is Wealthy Affiliate

This link will take you to my main page, where I explain what Wealthy Affiliate is all about

As a general timeline, if you follow the training on Wealthy Affiliate, and you must follow it exactly you will see tangible results within 6 months. Some people do this much sooner, but on average it takes about 6 months to really know what you are doing, construct a good website, get some good traffic going to it and to see some results.

You may say 6 months is a long time, but as I stress I am not here to bull shit you. If you are really short of money and need to make money fast, go to Ebay or Amazon. If you want to build a business and yes a proper business, I would say 6 months is a minimum.

However, if you stick to the training, the success you will find will be exponential ! – your income will double and then double again. As with most things, and as the famous Producer Sam Goldwyn said “the harder I worked the luckier it got”

Generally if you follow the training completely you will :-

  • Make your first sale within your first 2 to 3 months
  • A breakthrough in organic traffic at around the 6 month’s mark
  • Making consistent sales and earning a consistent passive income within a year’s time
  • Quit your full-time job after around 1 year, 1.5 year or 2 years time (depends on your time and commitment to your own business)

What I do have to stress is that there is no Guarantee, success may come quickly or it may not come at all ! That is possible you may fail completely, it is totally up to you.

So do you think you have what it takes ? would you like to lose the 9 to 5 job and be your own boss in one year (if you give it absolutely 100%)  click the link and START NOW !!

You have nothing to lose, remember Wayne Gretzky – “You miss 100% of the shots you dont take”  I love that quote !
