Why You Are Not Making Money Online

By Edited Jan 24, 2016 5 16

It seems that everywhere you turn these days people are talking about making money online. If you listen to these people long enough, you start to think that this is something that you should get into. You spend a lot of time each day online. It would be easy to use all of this time online to start making money online, or so you think. There is one reason that you are not making money online right now. You are not using your time wisely when you are logged into to begin making money online.

The Problem

There are many time drains available to you online. These start with friendly forwards from family and friends of jokes and inspirational sayings that you read as soon as they get to your inbox. The next step that many people make in their Internet surfing is that they read the daily headlines and gossip from the front page of whatever home page that they use. All of this is not making money online for you. It is wasting time.

The reason that you and many other people are not making money online is that they spend too much time online doing nothing. Doing nothing means that you are doing tasks that will not make you money. If you are really interested in making money online, you need to spend every moment that you are on your computer doing tasks that are designed to start making money online.

This may seem drastic and it is. Time is a precious thing that we only have so much of each day. It is the wise person who uses their time to be the most productive person that they can be. This is the number one truth of making money online. When you are focusing your Internet time to doing things that will make you money, you will start making money online.

To true. I whole heartedly agree with you.

Ya exactly, the more time you waste surfing those fluff sites (celeb gossip sites, computer gaming sites, etc), and even news sites, the less time you have to apply to your online ventures.

These sites break up your focus too, making it harder to get going again once you "take a break" to check out some fluff.

Another huge time waster is instant messaging. Get people to email you and check your email two times a day. You would be surprised how much more work you can get done if you don't waste 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there chit chatting.

Consistency is key! Set aside an amount of time daily to contribute to your passive income goal, and over time you will realize your dreams!

Great information and very true. I found out the long way by trial and error and a lot of wasted time, if only I'd ran across this article sooner! :)

Thanks for the great reminder on not wasting time if you want to make money online...I've only been writing for online sites for about 5 months, so hopefully I can break some of these habits... ;)

social blathering can be another form of doing "nothing" as well. Although it may be a constructive marketing scheme to generate traffic, the goal is targted traffic, not lookers, right?

Exactly - You can kill a couple of hours just twitters, facebooking, reading the news, forwarding email, playing online games - and that all could be used to effectively create online passive income - Your article is a great motivator! Thanks

Very true. Time is so important. Put in the hard work now, build up multiple streams of residual income, and you will reap the benefits for years to come!

Yup, if you want "job income" you've got to treat your internet properties like a job. The difference is, with online ventures, your successes snowball, whereas a "real job" gives you the same payout every day.

I agree with you 100%.
Mar 8, 2011 12:06am
So true. In fact, I'm wasting time right now....back to the grind!

True. That time can be spent with learning the trade! I have been trying to convince my wife that internet marketing is a viable career. All in due time. thanks for the reminder.
