There are so many websites that promise overnight fortunes. I just did a search for “make cash online” and here is some of what came up. “Make $ 150,000+ every month starting today” or “make $ 4500 taking surveys”. Please don’t fall for these. 99% of the time you are not going to make big money quick online, money for free, big money working 1 hr per day…they don’t work. Like we’ve all heard before, if it sounds too good to be true it usually is.
Over the years I have bought many books and courses on how to make money online. There are thousands of courses out there. I don’t have a problem paying for education, I consider this part of my investment in the business. But it sure seems like a lot of these people are making their money online by selling books and courses on how to make money online.
Or the ones that will say “make fast easy money working from home sending emails” or “filling out surveys”. When they tell you it’s easy, fast, overnight, no work required, it is most likely a scam, or at the very least, not really entirely true.
Is there any real way to make some extra money online that doesn’t cost you money to do?
You can have a website for free which allows this to be done for no money. It’s not as good as having your own site. It could get shut down for some reason for example, and for $ 10 a month, I’d rather have my own site than to worry about someone else deciding things for me. The ticket is to find a system that is easy to understand, is doable by anyone and can be repeated to start building up a real business.
I came across 3 moms and 1 young man who all basically do the same thing with minor differences, all separately on their own. And one of them just uses a free website. And she has 6 kids. These 3 methods do take some work, and they won’t make you a millionaire overnight. But their plans make real money. And they can work pretty fast.
After spending the last few years making a living online, I have tried different tactics and invested in some systems that have added up to a bit of money. Systems that have a monthly fee in order to use them can really start adding up. But that’s the beauty of these systems. They can be done without any extra investment, they’re easy to understand, don’t take that long to set up and then you just repeat it over again.
So for me, Mr. Keep It Simple, I am going to follow in their footsteps until someone can show me another way to make money online that can be done with little or no money. If that happens, I will add it to the mom’s methods as another income stream.
