Today we live in a very modern time where technology is advancing extremely fast and in this case, I am primarily thinking on the Internet.
Honestly, I can’t even imagine what will happen in 5 or 10 years when it comes to the Internet, but let’s deal with online earnings now.
Many people wonder (including my parents) if making money online is possible and if so does it pays off.
Right at the beginning to say that IT IS possible, people in the world earn real wealth through the internet. I have been living off the internet for 6 years now though my parents still can’t believe it.
I do affiliate marketing which is one of the best and safest ways to make money online. I recommend you read my story and find out more about what I do and how you can start your online business, from your own home.
In this article, I want to talk about 5 myths about online earnings, but first let’s see which are the most popular online jobs you can do that will SURELY bring you earnings.
– Blogging (my number 1 recommendation!)
– Affiliate Marketing
Now let’s talk about those most common myths about making money online which I think will help you in a positive way.
1. Don’t Waste Your Time, Its All a Scam
Most people don’t believe in making money online and the vast majority (and maybe some of you) believe that someone is just trying to “steal” your money.
The truth is, there are a lot of scams online and a lot of people who really just want your money and nothing more.
Personally, I have been a victim many times of these people who want to “give” you a certain product or service, claiming that the system works and the truth is completely different, you pay the money and never see or hear it again.
It is also true that there are many more scams you will come across online than real and legitimate jobs but what is important is that you must not give up because the Internet is also a real treasure trove of money that you have to use.

2. Everyone Can Make Money On The Internet
I must say that although making money online is very possible and even though many people make small fortunes online, making money online is not for everyone.
Many people learn on the Internet that anyone who has ambitions and desires to succeed online can do it, but let’s be realistic, how many people do you know that live from internet earnings? Not much? I thought so. The truth is that the vast majority of people fail online and many end up with an empty pocket.
Everyone has the potential to make money online but not everyone wants to see that potential. Making money online is not easy at all (I felt it on my skin), it takes time and effort to succeed. Many people with whom I worked invest work but forget the main thing, TIME, and therefore “fail”. You can’t get rich overnight, I mean where is that possible?
In order to succeed online and make a living from online earnings, you need to invest a minimum of 3 months of constant work to see results. I know it will seem like a lot to some of you but 3 months is nothing compared to what you get after that.
If I hadn’t been patient and worked hard for 3 months on my online business today I wouldn’t be making a living from online earnings.
3. It’s All About Games and Fun
What’s weird today is that my parents and friends think I’m playing on my laptop and making money that way.
Many times I heard those sentences “you are happy, you sit at home playing games and making money”, that irritated me a lot at first, but now I’m already hooked on such things.
People think that because someone makes money online he has to enjoy it but the truth is much different. I get up at 7 in the morning and do the same as people at “regular” work. Of course, I can take breaks when I want, I can eat when I want, I can go out when I want and it’s priceless, it’s an incredible advantage of working from home.
So, if you are tired of your regular (stressful) job and plan to try yourself in the online world, be prepared for the following:
- No fixed earnings: when you work online you can earn $0 or $10000 +, no limit. This can be both a disadvantage and an advantage of this job because, in the beginning, you will not earn but as time goes on the earnings will be higher if and only if you invest effort and time.
- You Are Your Own Boss: when you work online from your home there is no one to disturb you (except your family), you have no boss, you have no superior, you work when and how much you want. This can also be a drawback because sometimes we need to force ourselves to get moving and get to work.
- Free time: online work brings many benefits but one of the most beautiful is that you have extra time for yourself and your loved ones. Of course, this should not be abused because you SHOULD WORK and not “hang” on social networks all day because otherwise there is nothing from the online business.
In any case, working online requires attention 24/7 because it is a business that works 24/7, your business is online and accessible to the whole world. So, don’t think that online earnings and work from home are a “joke”, people who live from internet earnings put a lot of effort and time into their online business and that is why they are rewarded many times over.
4. You Will Get Rich Overnight
I have already talked about this above in the text, although it is online, you cannot expect earnings “overnight”. Anyone who tells you that he has succeeded online and is making money online knows that he has put a lot of effort into his business and that in the beginning, he had nothing to do with making money.
When you start an online business you MUST NOT think only about money because it is a sure way to fail and do nothing.
To get rich when it comes to online business, you need years and years of hard work. Of course, there are cases where people get rich in a few months, but these are rare cases.
Imagine a web developer just starting to work online. No client will “hire” him until he proves his abilities and skills as well as experience through cheap gigs (jobs).
Or imagine a blogger just starting out in the online world. He may know how to write articles perfectly but it takes time to build his audience who trust him and who will read his articles regularly. Do you think that can happen “overnight”? I would not say.
In order to succeed in any “online” business, it takes time and a proper “mindset”. On the internet you can find a small million people who promise you instant earnings but only if you buy some of their software or program at a price of $100- $1000.
Be sure that such people just want to cheat you and take your money. Anything that sounds too good to be true know that it is NOT GOOD.
5. There Is Only One Way To Make Money Online
Anyone who tells you that you have to do “this” or “that” to make money online knows that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. You can make money online by doing anything as long as there are potential customers who would pay for your services.
Here are some ideas on how you can make all your money online;
- Web developer, designer
- Video game streaming
- Writing books
What I have listed is just one part, there are hundreds of ways you can make money online although I prefer passive earnings through my website (blog).
Passive earnings are risky but very worth the effort. When you put time and effort into your blog and it becomes profitable, you will have earnings even while you sleep, so your blog will bring you earnings 24/7, for years (that is passive earnings).
Do You Want To Work Online?
Although online earnings can be risky, they ultimately bring great relief and financial stability. I have to admit that it was very difficult for me in the beginning when I started working on my website (which you are reading now) but I succeeded with a lot of effort.
Besides, no one helped me or “pushed” me to fight for online earnings and now I want to encourage you to give a chance to this wonderful way of earning, you have nothing to lose.
If you haven’t read my story I advise you to go to this link and see how I got started. Although there are many ways to earn money on the Internet today, I opted for Affiliate Marketing, which is definitely one of the best ways to earn money in the world. All you need to get started with affiliate marketing is a website and nothing more.
