FREEDOM – Can The Internet Set You Free?

FREEDOM - Can The Internet Set You Free?If you are new to online marketing then you probably have this nagging question in the back of your mind. Can the internet set you free? Or is it all BS and hype. Smoke screens and mirrors!

I thought I would write this post as a precautionary tale to new online marketers!

Why? Because I see a lot of newbies who are looking to make money online, endlessly searching for the holy grail – the magic button or magic pill! They jump from one opportunity to the next.

Looking for the next big!

You may resonate with this. I know this is what I used to do when I got started. I would get sucked in by all the guru hype, that was designed to keep me confused. The Guru’s would give me just a few pieces of the puzzle to keep me buying more of their over priced stuff!

So, Let me answer the question…

Can The Internet Set You Free?

Yes, it can but let me give you a reality check – if you are looking for easy money then STOP reading right now!

You need to stop jumping from one opportunity to another, select your business model and focus on building your business. Avoid the shiny object syndrome!

There are various different business models you can follow on the Internet – from MLM, Affiliate Marketing to becoming an Ebay Seller! And many more….I haven’t mentioned.

Find a business model that suits your personality and lifestyle.

What I mean by that is play to your strengths. If you are a shy person then MLM is probably not going to be your cup of tea because it involves talking to people in person or on the phone.

Affiliate marketing may be more suitable for you because you can remain fairly anonymous, behind the scenes with affiliate marketing. All the customer service is taken care of by the product vendor! All you have to do is concentrate on driving traffic!

So, Can The Internet Set YOU Free?

It certainly can if you treat it as a business and not a hobby! I see too many people reluctant to invest in themselves! They are frightened to spend money on their business and they spend loads of time messing around with free traffic methods that take forever to produce any results!

On a side note: In my opinion there is no such thing as free traffic.

Let me explain..

Free traffic methods take up loads of your time. If you earn $20 per hour and it takes you an hour to write an article, then that article cost you $20. If you had outsourced that same article you could have had it written for around 7 bucks or less!

So don’t be fooled into not investing in your business and don’t be fooled into thinking that there are free traffic methods! Your time is worth money!

Can The Internet Set You Free To Work When You Want And Where You Want?

Yes, that’s the real beauty of the Internet – you are not tied to one location or even a time to start or finish. The Internet never sleeps! While you are sleeping people on the other side of the world are waking up and others are half way through their day!

How great is that?

As long as you have wi-fi and your laptop, you can work from anywhere in the world you choose. The side of the pool or from your local Starbucks. That is true freedom right there. 

Ask yourself  – What are you looking to achieve by starting an Internet Business? Are you looking to get out of debt? Are you looking to have all the toys – fast cars and a mansion? Or are you looking for time freedom and to be answerable to nobody,  especially not that asshole boss anymore?

Once you have worked out your reasons for starting your Internet Business and honed in on the business model you want to adopt I would advise you to find a mentor.  Most successful people have a coach or mentor!

Until next time….

Your partner in success,

    This is a mistake I made but I found that really intuitively falling into a niche that works which for me is social media, and investing on it and working on it- that has been my holy grail.

  2. Greg says:

    Glad to hear it Keri!

  3. Alison says:

    You have to learn the hard way before you find that perfect niche to the point that you know you can stick with it and that is a sure cure for the Shiny Object Syndrome as well.

  4. Greg says:

    Trial and error is a hard way to learn anything.

    I believe in order to get better you have to make your own mistakes but I just wish I hadn’t tried to go it alone for so long!

    In this time I must have bought every shiny object out there.

    You know, it is very difficult to be successful in anything until you find the right thing for you! And you will know when you find the right thing because that is when your passion is ignited. And when your passion is ignited, you will move Heaven and Earth to work at it and that is how you will be successful! I have to say sometimes going through “the shiney object syndrome” is what is needed in order to find THAT thing that strikes your fancy because I did🙂 And when you do, that is also an instant cure for the “shiney object syndrome”.

    You will just know when you have found your thing that will make you money. If the fire is there, there is no stopping you and you will work for your freedom. So yes, the internet CAN set you free if you have found the right thing to do so! But it takes work but you won’t mind it if you love what you are doing anyway!

  7. Kathleen says:

    Anything can set you free if you put your mind to it!
