A lot of people have heard about the existence of work over the Internet, but there is small percentage of those who believe that it is possibleto make money on that. Try to tell someone like: “I know a friend who works over the Internet. He is working from his house and having a good money.” What would be the reaction on that? Most likely: “Well, yes, I know some guy as well… bla bla bla.”
Quite a different reaction will be, if you say that you are going to make money like that for your living. Your family, or people who surround you would likely say that you are absolutely crazy, and trying to trade regular work for some “games on the internet.” And those friends who recently supported conversation about earning over the internet would likely name you a fool or insane. Maybe even behind your bag. No doubt, it happens very often. But why?
People are so used to the system, that you have to have a real job, because you’ll not be having money. And often people heave a shame that they are sitting at home doing nothing. But if you say that you are going to work over the internet and earn some money on it – people likely tell that it is not serious. And that is because most people are using Internet only for facebook, and this website, and many other similar services, will soon become synonymous to the meaning of the Internet. If you are sitting in the internet – means that you are doing nothing, upgrading your farm in some game, and work is last thing you wanna think of, because you are lazy …
And is there real opportunity to earn money over the internet? And the profit should be not just few coins, but at least regular salary on a full time job. The answer is simple – it is possible. I can confirm it – as I did it, and a lot of people making money too.
At this point, many of you probably remembered colorful banners, such as “I earned $ 60,000 a week” or “Became a millionaire without any investments.” Do not even try – all that is nonsense, cheap ads for naive people to make at least a hundred on them, and that’s it.
In fact, work over the Internet is monotonous, and very different at the same time. This is not a easy job, as it seems like it is – like, you just sitting and sitting at one place. Not, it’s not that simple, but more about that a bit later. And again – why this work is monotonous? Because you have to sit hours and hours, days after days and do quite same type of job. But at the same time you can self educate to a new things, improve skills and eventually increase income. You have all the options. You can earn a penny or thousands of dollars per month – it’s up to you and no one else.
So what should you do to get money over the Internet? There is no straight answer – who is having motivation and will – can make money on anything and everything. Some people specialize in writing texts and articles, another make websites, and third ones make a team and run projects… There are many options to choose from, I’d rather say that it’s a topic for another article, but there is one important requirement:
As the example lets take copy writing. It seems like nothing difficult. I’ve worked on this before. And what happened? That is not so easy to create and idea, then to write it in a correct way and style. Besides that – the grammar and punctuation should be on a high level. That are majority of reasons, why people stop doing that after short period of time. And for example, even if you want to do simple photo edits, you’ll need some good skills in Photoshop. So I guess you got the idea.
Work over the Internet – is just the same work as everywhere else. It also need a hard work.
Some people think, and I don’t know why, that in the internet you can get quick, easy money practically doing nothing. They rush on all those ads where millions are promised after a week, and some other trash. Of course they spend their money, without any profit. And why not? Yes, that is simply because there are no freebies anywhere, including the Internet. Internet – is not just a network of computers, that is also people which are sitting behind, and they are not fools. If you want somebody to pay you, you need to do something for them. Just as in real life, but personal meeting is not required. Internet is like a communication tool between the employer and employee, or between the performer and the customer, and nothing more. It is also the source of information, but not the source free cash. You should always remember that.
A person can’t know everything at once – someone specializes in one stuff, someone else in another… If I, for example, do not know how to write a text, and I really need some for a project, I would just pay for it. In the same way somebody will pay me if they are not knowing what to do. That’s the whole principle of the Internet. Of course, there are other ways of making money, way more than you can even think, but this is a topic for another article. The main thing to remember – working remotely via the Internet requires some knowledge and effort. Whatever you chose to do – it can be very profitable.
This post is not meant to discourage you. I just want to say that work over Internet is not that easy as many people may think. But if you have some ideas and motivation, why not to try? Of course, it may be hard at start point, but no one is limited in possibilities to develop themselves. If you do this seriously, your income can not only be comparable with the usual salary, but also greatly exceed it. But that requires very strong desire.
If you make money online, don’t hesitate to share your thoughts in the comments.
