Making money online … is it really for you?
Is an online business really as profitable – or as stable and secure – as an offline bricks-and-mortar enterprise?
You may have heard that making money on the internet is not as easy as some of the “gurus” claim – and for many it’s becoming more competitive, more complicated, less profitable and less enjoyable everyday. Seems every second man, woman and child has a website, wiki or blog, and is competing for a speck in cyberspace – yet statistics claim that less than 3% are able to earn a living from it.
What you may not know is that many well-known, highly successful online marketers have offline businesses – and, in many cases, these businesses provide them with the largest percentage of their income.
It’s something many of the “gurus” forget to mention when you attend their $5000 a day “making money online” seminars.
Bobby Walker, of the eminent internet marketing duo AdeelBobby.com, blogged about spending $60,000 on vending machines, in order to diversify his financial interests.
“I sat down a couple weeks ago and thought about my future for the next 10 years. Turning 40 made me realize that my time here is growing short and I need to make sure I secure a future for my wife and kids, so they can have the things they need later in life…
“So I started looking at a new business opportunity offline …
“I found a really good company that sells vending machines … to make a long story short, I bought 20 of their snack/drink combo machines. I spent over $60,000 directly out of my pocket to purchase these machines …”
“I think it’s wise to spread your money into different investments, so that you have the best chance to get everything you want out of life … I choose to put my money in other things, so if something does happen, I’m protected …”
He also noted another aspect of internet marketing that is seldom mentioned:
“I came from an offline business in the service industry … and I really miss it!
“I more miss the human interaction than anything else … so for that reason, I’ve decided to start this vending business to make my life more fulfilling. I’m not the type of guy that can sit behind my PC for hours per day everyday and feel good about it, no matter how much money I’m making … time to do something that makes me feel good about myself.”
Bobby Walker is not the only internet marketer to focus time, energy and cash in offline ventures.
Online marketer Bertil Jenner, has hundreds – maybe thousands – of websites and seems to earn a tidy income from them. But in his internet marketing guide, The FatCat Blueprint, he confesses:
“My biggest source of income is my offline business.”
During his early days of making money online, he invested most of his earnings into offline ventures.
He writes: “One offline business was involved with real estate and the other in the health industry. The health industry business is my biggest earner amongst all of my business activities.”
“Diversify … For financial security, nothing beats having multiple streams of income.”
