Most of us dream of living a luxurious life that does not involve going to the office and allows us to take a vacation to the Bahamas every now and then and enjoy a private yacht tour.

A few years ago, investing in stock markets was the ‘go-to’ way of becoming a millionaire overnight, however, the success of names like Neil Patel and Huda Kattan has given people another route – to working online. It is fun, it’s easy, it’s affordable, and above all… it is a lot less riskier.

However, the grass is always greener on the other side. While the internet has a lot of potential with over 3.2 billion people using the web now, not everyone who attempts to start a business online is able to find a success.

So what is it that they’re lacking which prohibits them from tasting success? Here are a few reasons:

  • Taking it Too Lightly: Many people make the mistake of taking online business a little too lightly. While there’s added ease when you’re working from home, yet you cannot afford to take things lightly. There’s actually added pressure when you’re working from home, especially in the beginning. An online business is just like any other business, it demands your time, attention and care. It will not grow on its own! Always remember, hard work beats the talent.
  • Doing What They Cannot Do: There are a plethora (literally!) of options to choose from when it comes to making money online. A lot of people look for the ‘fast option’ instead of the ‘right option’ and end up making a loss. Always, look for ways to make money that are right for you. Do not just follow what everyone else is doing.
  • 想得太早太早:一切都需要时间。虽然可能有少数幸运儿能在短时间内取得成功,但并非每个人生来就有这样的运气。在你开始看到任何积极的结果之前,需要几个月甚至几年的时间。
  • 不在线营销:大多数在线企业的一个主要误区是,它们不需要“投资”。是时候打破这个神话了。虽然在大多数情况下,你不需要投资就可以在网上创业,但你需要推销你所能提供的东西,以吸引他人。而网络营销,就像其他任何事情一样,需要钱,愿意花钱,这是对自己的一种投资。

如果你打算创业,不要犯上述错误,还需要避免这些类型的 个性特征 这会阻碍你的成功。为了帮助你选择正确的职业,下面给出了19种在线赚钱的方法。


当人们计划在网上创业时,首先想到的通常是创建一个网站。网站为用户提供他们感兴趣的东西。看看Facebook和Yahoo,它们都是简单但强大的网站,拥有者赚了数十亿美元。潜力巨大,你甚至可以像马克·扎克伯格那样将你的网站变成一家公司 使用Facebook. 当涉及到一个新的“概念”时,第一个概念非常重要。


  1. 想想你的网站会提供什么。你想要一个像CNN这样的新闻相关网站吗?你想要像Flickr这样的照片共享网站吗?你想要像推特这样的社交媒体网站吗?选择是无穷无尽的。理想的情况下,你应该追随自己的热情,在你真正热爱的东西上建立一个网站,这样你的工作就不会无聊了。
  1. Once you have decided on the niche, it is time to think of a name. There will be two things to keep in mind – your business name and your website name. There are over 1 billion websites out there, leaving you with little choices when it comes to a URL, however, you can use different extensions like .com, .net etc., to find an available domain. So, pick a brand name that is unique and relevant to your business. You should also make sure it is short and pronounceable. Lastly, make sure the brand name is available on all social media channels as well.

  1. Once the website is ready, it is time to spread the word out by marketing. Reach out to people by using marketing techniques like SEO, email marketing and social media advertising.

    Good article.
    I think before anything else, you need to review your mindset.
    People who make money aren’t afraid of what ifs. They know there are risks and they assume these risks. They aren’t afraid of challenges either.

    Think big or go home. Build a plan. Don’t be a wanderer and just expect money to fall from the skies.

    It’s true that nowadays you can make money out of anything. See the story of “pet rocks” in the US. But from making money to getting rich there’s a long way. Be efficient, consistent, passionate, dedicated and don’t give up, no matter how hard it is.

    That’s my online advice. I’m still far off from being rich, but I’ve always done what I loved and worked for myself, which allowed me to become rich in other ways (family time, friends, holidays off seasons, time with myself to enjoy my hobbies, good books and movies, art, social life, good music etc).
    And knowing that if tomorrow the Internet disappears, I can still find ways to support myself. 🙂

  2. I think 1 and 2 are almost too obvious to mention. Past that, you have so many options. For me, it’s always been about the freelance services. Online has just been a channel to do what I would do offline anyway.
