I'm sure some of you have tried these and found a lot of empty promises. Has anyone tried one that was a pleasant surprise, living up to their claims?
I'm thinking "no way" but perhaps someone can surprise me!
It depends on what company/program you are referring to.
I quit my day job something like 20 years ago and only work online.
I've been in some rather expensive programs in which I earned $1,500
In regards to working at home online, it always seemed to me there is 5
The MLM'rs make money off the backs of others. Nothing wrong with this,
just stating what it really is. The problems that one may run into with mlm
programs is just that.....making money off the backs of others, simply due
to not a consistent inflow from everyone involved. If there is not a consistent
inflow, roll up takes place. With roll up, people drop out from the bottom on
upwards. So all the hard work you may have accomplished, eventually rolls
up to bite you are the tail. Even if you made some good money with it, there
are always those at the bottom that hate you because they didn't. Still, there
are very good MLM programs out there that are also very sustainable. Always
look at the ones that offer a real service or a real product that people truly want
and at a reasonable price for what it is.
The Affiliaters make money by constantly referring others to a product or service.
This is truly one of the best ways to make money online but it can be a whole lot
of work too. There is many different ways to go about this. Most people make
the mistake of what I call hodge podge. By that I mean they have a website full
of differing stuff instead of placing focus on one arena. Whether you are referring
nike shoes or belong to an affiliate program, you really need to read and know how
much you will earn and for how long.....some affiliate programs only allow earnings
for a few months to a year.
The Moms are the mom and pop websites that are selling something they make
or own such as home made jam, home decor items, etc. These are mostly referred
to as mom and pop stores.
The investors are plentiful with all types of investment schemes from high yield
investment programs to insider trading and more.
The freebers consist of a variety of free programs in which people can make extra
money. These are programs such as PTC, GPT and even more such as some social
networks, traffic exchanges, downline programs, etc. As a general rule, these programs
cost nothing to very little.
I've owned programs and companies online. The problem with owning your company
online is, it's a lot of work and often a lot of expense. If you fail, you stand to lose a
whole lot of money. I owned the first full fledge coffee distributor company online.
The first problem I ran into was finding a programmer that could create a script from
scratch that would do everything I needed it to do. This alone cost me thousands of
dollars and the bad part is, I had to trash it and go with something else. The server
of course was expensive but that wasn't a major concern or issue. Since I don't live
on a coffee plantation, I had to locate a coffee company that sold excellent coffee but
would allow me to put my own brand on their product. This was some what expensive
because I had to purchase branding equipment....actual metal plates to stamp our
logo onto the product, etc. This was an MLM company so I wanted it to be legitimate
and I went on the hunt for an MLM lawyer. At the time, there was less than a handful
of MLM lawyers in the world. I got lucky and located one in Memphis. At least, It
would seem I got lucky. He was actually a retired lawyer with an MLM focus and I
met with him at his buddies lawyers office in Memphis. The office was old and smelled
moldy and it was so cold I shivered the entire time I spoke with him. He did however
know what he was talking about but he was a big money grabber and he cost me a
lot of money every time I turned around. To top it off, it took over a year for the
official launch with thousands of members constantly giving their two cents, hollering
when is it going to launch, and it was enough to drive any sane person out of their
friggin mind. What was really hilarious is after we got under way, coffee prices
shot up out of this world! So, what started out as a great idea, was more trouble
then it was worth. People in general, do not have the slightest idea how much work
and money goes into creating/owning a company online. Everyone has their two
cents and everyone thinks their idea is the best and everyone thinks anything and
everything can be implemented at the snap of a finger.
So, if you're starting out online and want to make money from home, the above
is some options/choices for you. People that tell you to start big and think big,
don't listen to them. Start small, learn the ropes, decide what it is exactly you
are good at, what you truly enjoy, and then place focus along those lines. You
don't have to get rich online. You can become debt free and have a rewarding
online job focus and rewarding life.
