It’s Not Always Best to Say Something is Easy

‘Easy’ is a very subjective word and may represent very different things depending on who you are talking to. What is easy for one person may be difficult for another. Some popular terms are often misconstrued. It should be emphasized that ‘easy’ and ‘autopilot’ and ‘passive’ income, while they do exist, need to be implemented before they can be so. Entrepreneurs that use those terms should not hesitate to be honest that it took them some time to reach their goals.

EZ or Not Just Do It!
There is no magic to these terms. We have to be logical with ourselves and others. So many seem to be in denial and assume that because “Joe the HomeBiz Wizard” (who worked every day diligently for 2 years to be where he is financially) can do it, then we can just overlook the time it took him. We can figure because Joe is sharing his ‘secrets’ that we can just read it once and enjoy the same benefits. Woo Hoo! Rich by lunch! Probably not…

The problem with this ‘pipe dream’ is that it can be highly disappointing when things don’t work that way. Time and again dreamers will start something and give it half an effort just ‘to test the waters’ while ignoring the fine points about the investment of time and effort that are necessary for any profitable business.

So that is why after not giving a business a chance to develop – and just allowing yourself some pre-set ‘probationary’ period, that makes several invalid assumptions, deluded people will quickly pronounce that the program is not good , or even that it’s a scam and quit trying. The main problem is having pre-conceived attitudes, (and bad advice from amateurs) which are the opposite of having an open mind and a ‘learning spirit’.

It would have been much better if he could have played along and followed the program. Best if he tried to benefit from the (usually free) training provided, did some research on what was said, and did some due diligence. He should have made an attempt to determine what a feasible plan will be for him. He needs to have a logical plan that will allow him to facilitate everything so as to meet reasonable, achievable target goals.

However, it wasn’t exactly easy because there was a lot of work involved and a lot of time to build a business. We had to learn a lot of things along the way. During this time we didn’t know if what we were doing was going to work. The results are determined mostly by how much time and sincere, aggressive effort was invested. If it didn’t get a fair chance, it may not have the results you hoped for.

How to Earn While You Learn With Affiliate Programs

The main beauty of an affiliate program is how easily you can begin. You can start advertising as soon as you have an ID – usually the same day that you sign up for membership. They will also provide an affiliate web page for you to advertise. All done for you!

That is all it takes, along with some disciplined actions to promote the business and a reasonable amount of time to produce results. Along with the tools you need, the program also provides the product that you will be selling.

You don’t need to develop your own product or program or know how to build a web page. By becoming an affiliate you have the right to earn money from everything that the program provided to you. Depending on your efforts it could be today, tomorrow or next month that you earn your first commission. All you need to do is to focus on promoting the product.

At this point, you have invested very little except some time and effort. The only money you may have spent so far is the membership dues if applicable. Some programs you can even join free and make a decision to upgrade after you have seen what it is about.

You are getting a very fair deal in most cases. The vast majority of affiliate programs have no contracts or commitments beyond month-to-month. If there is a contract, be leery because there is no guarantee they will honor ‘refunds’, etc.

Do some analysis to determine how much you would have had to spend to start a business if you didn’t enjoy all the benefits that an affiliate program provides. You will be amazed at the deal you are getting if you consider what the costs would be otherwise.There are product development, market research, programming, website development, and operations management, etc..

If you have to do all this for yourself, you may be looking at years before you generate any income. You may be paying a lot of money if you need to hire people to do all of the above. Afffiliate programs also have operations expenses like any business. So don’t begrudge the program their paltry membership fee.

Realize that your appreciation should extend to forgiving them because they need to maintain their business operations and as such need also to generate income to keep it all rolling. They could not provide all that they do and also pay affiliate commissions if they couldn’t generate any income themselves. It’s no crime.

All you need to do is to consider that cost as ‘the cost of doing business’ and accept it gratefully since it is really such an unbelievable deal. Don’t get in a big rush because you have decided 30-days is enough time to judge a business opportunity. Try not to think about the little bit of money you are spending and instead focus your attention on what needs to be done to promote your business and the opportunity you have to learn.

The more you apply yourself the sooner you will begin to see results. At some point, you may wish to add more affiliate programs to your portfolio of business opportunities. If you increase the number of things you have to offer, your income can increase proportionately.

You can promote the product with article marketing, social media, creating blog posts, and commenting strategies. Affiliate Marketing allows you to set your own hours. You can work at any time day or night. Just so you do the work necessary.

Virtual Assistant

Hundreds of online entrepreneurs are in need of assistance with their businesses. These tasks are essential . Some online entrepreneurs need a virtual assistant to respond to emails received from customers who have questions before they purchase, or information of some kind. If you have any office skills at all, becoming a virtual assistant is not as difficult as you may believe. Presenting a solid resume to potential clients can mean you have a job. You can work for as many clients as you have time for.

Tutoring

Tutoring can also provide you with a chance to earn a living from your home. There are many students that are always in need of help with their school work. There may be students in middle school, high school and college that seriously need someone to help them with their studies. Tutoring would be doing something good for someone else, and could help you earn a substantial income in your spare time.

You can advertise your services on freelance sites. You may eventually even create your own website and advertise from there as well. However, statistics show that tutors have more success with acquiring clients on freelance sites most likely because of more traffic.

You could choose one or more of these ‘careers’ and can enjoy the income you will earn part or full-time. Always advisable to keep your day job as you must survive while you are building your reputation and attracting new money when you start out.
