Making money on internet: A fact or myth?

The dream is very tempting-an on-line job from the comforts of home. After all, the advantages are far too many. You are free from the morning rush and hassles at the workplace. Not to forget the freedom and flexibility to decide on the amount and time of work. There are good monetary returns and you can move anywhere you want.

If the ads on the internet are to be believed there’s an overdose of money floating around. ‘Earn in six minutes’ ‘Earn $2000-10,000 salary, doing admin jobs’ ‘No sales or ads but earn like never before’-You’d have read these ads in your mailbox or seen them while browsing.

But, does internet pay? Let’s see:

The story unfolds like this: When you visit these websites, after oodles and oodles of promise, you get a bonus deal of the day. Further, you would be asked to take out a cheque for a specified amount to get a ‘kit’ with names of money making websites. After receiving the kit, you visit the websites mentioned only to find more bonus deals and kits. Meanwhile, these websites get money from the clicks done on their site and improve their traffic. Though not you, somebody did make money.

And if that bonus deal, by sheer luck, is real, you are advised to create a website or blog and cram it with articles, affiliate links, feeds and ‘click on ads’. But this method, even though it may pay, has many disadvantages. ‘Ad sense’ and ‘click me’ ads do bring in money but inviting traffic to your site is a painfully slow process. It may be years before you get money in your hands and this profit may not last long. Why? People look for value and flee when they find a better website offering more information. Technology keeps changing and you may end up burnt and dejected.

Got time for another story? Then step in survey schemes. There are many survey schemes in the garb of promising easy money. Here, you join networks to take surveys of different markets and products. After two surveys you are told that you get more money referring friends and you start referring all the people you know. Yet, the total amount, whatever you do, never comes to a profitable level. There are, be assured, many more stories/scams in the online market which are anything but genuine.

So is it a myth that online works pay? Well, not really, not if you are willing to work hard. Whatever be the job, without perseverance and dedication you won’t be able to achieve anything. So, if you want to do on-line jobs look out for freelance ‘work based’ opportunities. There are legitimate jobs available ranging from data entry, writing/editing, animation, design, and so on. Concentrate on any one of the jobs and try to build a strong foundation. Take time and effort to learn the trade and talk to the experts in the field.

Sooner or later, you’ll reap the rewards of hard work. If you want to see what's in the market for making money online, please check in the forum. Please remember, it is easier to part with your money than to get rich overnight.

Thanks for sharing information!!!
People need to stay home and raise a family is a key reason this choice is regularly made. Also, people starting up in their own businesses often choose to work from home because it provides a cheaper option.

Dear Merlin,
I appreciate the kind of information you have shared with all of us here. I would also like to add one thing here and that is, that it is just because of human nature that they look for success by short cut and its then when they fall into such traps.
