Yes. I also want to make money online too. I started to work from home about five years ago and not looked back since. And now my goal is to make money online as an internet marketer. I honestly have to say this is one of the hardest things that I have ever done in my entire life!
First of all, the competition for business is huge! There are thousands of people trying to sell their products and services on the internet just as we are. How on earth, with all of this competition do we get noticed? You do not want to be one automobile on I 95, because chances are, your will not be seen. So how can people find us without spending a whole lot of money? This is what internet marketing is all about. It is learning how to market your product or service on the internet so that people will find you. If you have your own home based business and are trying to sell your product or service, you MUST know how to market. If you do not learn how to do this effectively, you will more than likely become one of those statistics of people who fail or give up. I personally tend to think, however that more people are giving up than failing! I am learning how to market in two of the programs that I currently sponsor and I am spending A LOT of time learning how to get myself seen out there in cyberspace.
Writing, like I am doing now is a very big plus. In addition, find out about the forums and classified ads that can submit you to all of the major search engines such as Google and Yahoo. It will take time, however, you WILL make money online if you learn how to market effectively, stay positive, and stay patient. You will not get rich overnight, however, slow and steady wins the race!
