Can you really get rich quick on the Internet without doing a lick of work?
That?s what SB, a subscriber, recently asked me.
?Bob, what?s your take on the standard Internet guru shtick of the 4-hour work week??
He?s referring, of course, to all those hyped up, high-price ?how to get rich quick on the Internet? programs promising you can make millions working an hour a week.
What I told SB is this: it?s actually sort of true ? but with a big ?but.?
You in fact CAN make a lot of money selling information products online with very little work from week to week.
But that?s only after you?ve created all your products ? your Web sites ? and built your e-list.
And to produce all that is a ton of work up front.
Once it?s finished, you can indeed generate a steady stream of ?passive income? ? with a minimum of additional labor on your part — literally for life.
Passive income is money you make without actually having to work for it.
Listen: all my life I have made money with ?active income.?
As a freelance copywriter, I made (and still make) a handsome living.
But, I have to work for that money ? all the time.
Dentists have a saying: ?If you?re not filling and drilling, you?re not billing.?
Even in a highly paid profession like dentistry, there?s no passive income: you only make money when you work.
So you are always trading time for money.
With an Internet marketing business, once you have an e-list, products, and Web sites, you can begin earning a steady stream of passive income.
It?s thrilling to watch orders coming in via e-mail as you sit at your computer ? doing not a lick of work!
A few weeks ago, for example, I took my family to the beach for 5 days.
Since I didn?t work at all during vacation, my copywriting income for the week was zero.
But my online income was $6,103 ? because a good Internet marketing business runs almost automatically, whether you?re there or not.
You can make more money ? and have an easier life ? when you generate passive income.
And selling information products online is just about the best way I know ? aside from owning income-producing real estate ? of producing more than enough passive income to live on.
When your passive income exceeds your spending, you have essentially escaped the rat race.
By that I mean you no longer have to work, and you are free to spend your time as you wish.
Can this really be done?
I know I have done it, but I don’t expect readers of this blog to take MY word for it.
So … what’s YOUR experience with Internet marketing and “get rich selling information on the Internet” courses and programs?
Do these systems work? Can you actually make money with them? Have you in fact done so? Would you recommend them to others?
Or have you spent a lot of money on “get rich on the Internet” products only to be disappointed? Did these program promoters sell you a load of BS? Do you think everyone selling “make money online” are all hypsters?
Can you REALLY make a lot of money WITHOUT a lot of work? Or is it all a load of manure?
