Article - Simple Advice About Making Money On The Web

I'm not an Internet marketer and I'm not trying to sell you something. Instead, if you are trying to make money on the Internet or starting an online home based business, I have a simple piece of advice for you. The advice I am talking about is:

"You can't get something for nothing"

I could almost hear what you are thinking. "Who is this guy trying to fool? Does he think I am a 9 year old? I know that already!"

True. When that boyfriend of yours gives you chocolate and treats you like a queen, you know something's up. Either he wants you know what from you, or he's done something real bad and he's trying to soften you up first before telling you. Either way, the chocolate's NOT free. ;)

But do you apply the same skepticism to the online world?

There are tons of websites that promise that you will make thousands of dollars a month for work that a 9 year old can do. What's more, they tell you that you probably need to work just for an hour or two per day to make that amount.

And they are thriving because despite their ridiculous claims, many people still get duped. It seems that when we come online, we leave behind our healthy skepticism.

Admit it. You have been tempted, right? Probably gave in to the temptation and lost a couple of dollars, right?

And I won't think too much about the money lost when you decide to take a chance with these type of sites. But I would be very mindful of the time wasted on such sites. Money lost can be earned again, but time lost is gone forever.

These sites are on every single corner of the web.

Engage your healthy skepticism the next time you encounter such a site, and click the back button. A full time income on the web can be accomplished, but only if you spend your time productively.
