    Everyone these days wants to make some money on the web. And everyone wants the easiest, fastest and effortless way. Hmm, yeah, great, but that thing doesn't exist. Or if it does, it only works till others hear about it. So, if you still download all the wso and other $hit like that, i don't think you're ready to make real money on the internet. Why? It's easy.

    First of all, i didn't wrote this to brag or to say you're not doing the right thing. I did just the same, hunting any idea, trying to do what others said it's good, what others bragged it will bring you lots of cash over night. But that never works. And if you think a little, it's a common sense rule in business.

    You go download something that promises you will make thousands of $ in one month. Cool, ha? Nope, it's not. First of all, if you have something that can make that kind of money, you either keep it for yourself, without sharing it, or, in the best case, you sell it for at least 5-10 times more then it brings. And all because competition. Let's say you found something that others didn't do before. or that it's not very well exploited, something that may bring you those thousands every month. If you sell it, no matter cheap or expensive, there will be competition. That means your profit will start dropping, dramatically after some point. Which again, means you will lose the 1000s. And since everyone knows how sharing works, you can be sure that a BIG lot of people will try to do what you do, even damaging the way it worked before. So that someone who finds something like that will more then sure try to develop and improve that idea to bring him even more money, instead of selling it to you for 10$. What would be now if Sergey or Mark would sold their ideas for 20$ instead on working on them and create Google and Facebook when they started? You think they would still be where they are now? Not really. As i said, common sense business rule.

    Maybe some of those stuff are good, maybe they give you some interesting idea, but, don't count on them and even more, don't put your hopes in them, you will be very disappointed. You won't make the 1000s in one month after reading it.

    What you can do, and that's the hard part, is to find THE thing that people want, the thing that it's not well enough (or at all) developed, something new and cool that will attract people. That one thing that people need. And i'm not talking about some stupid niche micro sites for molars whitening in Coxs Creek, Kentucky. I'm talking about something global, something new and really attractive. You want micro, you will get micro. You want global, you hit the jackpot. You need a lot of work, a lot of research, a lot of preparation, a lot of ideas. You will have to invest all your time and energy on that, without autopilots, blueprints or maps. And that's why you will succeed. And MOST of the time you can do most of the job yourself AND for FREE, or with very few expenses (instead of reading tons of $hit that tell you the same useless things over and over, you can read and learn how to develop sites, how marketing [REAL marketing] works, etc...).

    Yes, there is a lot of work for that, no, you won't make 1000s per month in 2 days, no, it's not easy. But YES, you will make REAL money on the internet, and not till the others find out about it, but for a very long time. Don't try to copy others, forget about competition, be the original.

    And you'll succeed.

    What people confuse IM with is their actual business plan. IM alone is not an income producer but rather a methodology to help execute a real business plan. Additionally, the goal should not be to get rich per se but rather to follow your own dreams and likes. All of the self made tech billionaires were in it for the game not the riches. Without passion you not executing anything.

    True. And besides that, you need to know from the beginning what you wanna do. Most of the stuff you find to download these days tell the middle or last step, without telling you the grounds or basics. People download all kinds of plugins for wordpress and they expect them to work, without knowing how wordpress works, for example. And i don't mean the technical php stuff, but the simple basic principles.

    And people should really stop copying what others did before. You need to come with something new, otherwise you will remain a small-time chaser. Think about it, Ford or Renault or any others like, who offer you a mediocre product, they have to invest sooo much in advertising, marketing, competition survey, bla bla... You see their ads everywhere, they fight between each other to offer you their lame cars. But on the other hand, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Ferrari or others like, they don't have to deal with all these stuff. People ALREADY know they are the best, unique, original and awesome. Why? Because they don't copy, they don't offer mediocre products and people will always turn their heads on the street after them. The same in internet, exactly the same principles. Facebook, Google, Twitter, Youtube and others like don't have to sell you anything to make money (besides ads, but that's a different story), they don't have to trick you or force you to visit or use them. Others, most of the others, do.

    And it's up to you if you want to be Google or Ferrari, or just someone there in the crowd...
