Sorry if I’m shooting down the dreams of potential internet millionaires in the making, but I’m sorry, chances are you aren’t going to get rich quick. Chances are you won’t make enough to pay for the McDonald’s you’re going to eat tomorrow. While I could just go on and on with insults and bashing you I’m going to add a bit of substance to this post and explain to you what you’re doing wrong.
1 – You’re Trying To Get Rich
Trying to get rich is the first error you’ve made. You can be rich today and broke tomorrow. What we want is wealth. The wealthy usually don’t do it over night, but neither do they lose it over night. You build wealth, it isn’t magically obtained. If you know anything about building anything, it takes time. You’re going to need to take some time and figure out whether or not you’re in this for the long haul.
2 – You’re Believing Everything You Read Online
My first impression of anyone I meet online is that they’re lying. Maybe this makes me a bad person, maybe I’m too cautious. Honestly I don’t care, if you can’t undoubtably prove to me that you’re telling the truth I don’t want to hear it. You think that these people making videos with their fancy cars and beach houses really made enough money to tell you how to do it for 19.99. Oh wait and if you try to leave their site they offer it even cheaper. Anything to get a sale. Does that sound like an internet millionaire to you?
3 – You’re Putting All Of Your Eggs In One Basket
I know you don’t want to hear this, and you’ve heard it before. There’s a good chance you’re going to need more than one way to make money if you plan to build wealth. Multiple revenue streams is a sure fire method to build wealth. Even if you only own one website, diversify your income streams. Sure, show your ads, but don’t stop there. Tap into affiliate marketing and different income strategies.
4 – You Aren’t Bringing Anything New To The Table
If you’re going to be the next internet millionaire, you’re going to have to do something that hasn’t been done before. What makes you think that your blog is going to be worth a million if there are a million blogs out there just like it. What sets you apart? Think about it.
5 – You Didn’t Read Number 1
I’m sorry. I’m not trying to get over on you or gyp you out of a 5th reason, but this needs to be reiterated. You don’t need to get rich. You need to build wealth. Save money, invest money. Your odds of finding a get rich quick scheme that works is about as likely as you winning the lottery. I honestly believe the lottery odds might be a bit higher. So either get realistic or buy a lot of lottery tickets.
In closing I want to leave you with this article I read on richdad.com. It’s very inspirational and informative. The article is titled, The #1 Rule For Getting Rich.
