Easy Money Online Opportunities

An Online Work At Home Business Is A Real Business – Really?

I suspect that far too many people fall into the trap of thinking that an online business is easier to start and run than an offline business. It is possible that an online business could require less money up front to start but I’m not convinced less work is an option – unless you have that so-called “magic selling” product.

Most people starting out with an online business probably do not fully understand what they are getting involved with. They understand the internet, and that they can pretty much access the world from their PC. So then maybe it is true that if one starts an online business by setting up a website then the whole world will see it and buy from it – Right?

Be Aware Of The Pitfalls Of Starting An Online Business From Home

Unfortunately this kind of thinking leads many people into a trap, and they fall victim to many online opportunities which are promoted as “Easy Money”. Trust me, if it was easy money they would be making it without you.  Scams and scammers are also to be found on the internet and a lot of them are very convincing.

Offline Versus Online Work From Home

money making ideas at home through online advertising

Maybe it is easier to understand by comparing an online business start-up with an offline business start-up.

You don’t want to spend much money with start-up costs, so you begin a business from your basement or garage. This would be similar to getting your own domain name or website in the online environment. Initially all you have is an online name with very little content.

Next, your offline business needs a product or service to sell. People are not real likely to just stop by and drop off money without getting something in return. An online business needs a product or service to sell also. “Opportunity” itself is not a product. Direct marketing (an offline business) uses this same business model – they sell products as well as offering an opportunity for one to make an income generating business.

Ok so now we’re legal and have our business started with a good product or service offered. Does the money flow begin now? Not really, since very few people will know that your business exists. You’ll need to do some advertising to make people aware of your business. An online business is very similar. You’re going to need to promote your website so that others will know you are out there.

Work At Home – Don’t Get Scammedwork at home job opportunities

As your offline business begins to grow, you’ll find the need to bring on other resources to assist with the additional business. You may also outgrow your space or need space with better accessibility for more people. An online business will also require more resources as it grows. More often the needs of an online business are “digital” or “electronic” versus the “physical” needs of an offline business. However, most of these “electronic” products or services have associated costs.

The point of this comparison is simply that an online business does not simply succeed overnight. Sure, there are always exceptions, but most new businesses take time and effort to succeed. If anyone tells you differently, then be careful! Don’t be too quick to pull out the credit card because there will always be people who are out to scam you with ‘To Good To Be True’ offers.

Money Opportunities At Home

There are many different work from home jobs on the internet and countless other money making opportunities you can do from home.  An online business can be very rewarding.  Just be realistic as you approach it.

Of course people starting out with an online business want the best home based business but probably do not fully understand what they are getting involved with.

Work At Home With An Internet Business

To get a better understanding, at the very least you will need basic training and a website with hosting and your own domain name.  An online company called Wealthy Affiliate will give you all of that and more. 

It wont cost you a cent to sign up as a Starter Member and you will have access for a full seven days.  After that seven days you are offered an upgrade to premium membership but you don’t have to take it.  You can remain as a free member for as long as you like and you still get to keep your free websites, hosting and domain name as well as all the help and support you will ever need.

I do have to tell you though that if you did take the upgrade you would still receive all the above mentioned plus you would be able to create 50 websites and all for free as well.  Not a bad deal all round but the decision would be yours and as I said, you can remain as a free member anyway.

  1. HHello Gina and thank you for your comment on my article – Easy Money Opportunities.

    Yes there are parallels between offline and online which I don’t believe a lot of people are aware off. Most think that great, I get a website and put some stuff on it and ‘Hey Presto’ I will make lots of cash.

    Unfortunately just like an offline business that takes a lot of initial hard work to get off the ground the online business wont happen overnight either.

    You have to work at it and put in the effort and a lot of hours.

    With an offline business unless you have a partner(s) you have everything to do yourself – where to go to for this, that or the other. What is and drawing up a business plan, setting up a schedule not to mention financial problems that you have to take into consideration.

    Of course all of the above will and do crop up in online business as well but as a member of Wealthy Affiliate with over half a million members you have most if not all the answers at your fingertips.

    You are never on your own and never left to ‘Get On With It’.

    You made a wise decision when you joined as I did in 2014.

    Thanks again for your comment and have a very nice day.

  2. Hi Robert, I appreciate the parallels you offer about offline and online business. Online does seem easier, but the truth is any job or business requires the effort to do it well. Learning to work online is a process just like developing any other skill. Trying to find shortcuts to avoid the fundamentals just costs time and money. Wealthy Affiliate offers the training and resources serious people are really looking for. ~Gina
