Are You Ready To Face The Hard Truth?Affiliate marketing is a great way to start an online business. Many successful online business owners have used affiliate marketing to launch their online businesses. After achieving a certain level of success, they specialize in their interests and start other businesses.I know of affiliate marketers who have achieved high incomes; however, even though it may be a great way to get started this should not be assumed it is easy.Affiliate marketing is not easy, although you can find mentors who will help and guide you so you can prevent making the mistakes, which in itself will accelerate your learning curve. However, there is still going to be a learning curve and a lot of work.One of the biggest misconceptions I believe out there in starting a business online is, ‘people set up and affiliate program or website and then sit back and expect the money to roll in.’Although to most this seems ludicrous. Yes, you will be correct in thinking that this type of thinking is ludicrous, people are still doing it, and subconsciously this is precisely how they think.They set up their affiliate program, website or blog, then start doing excellent work. As the results aren’t quick enough, they become distracted by the next big thing or stop believing that this business they have just started will work.There are good reasons for people to have this behaviour and belief system. The internet business opportunities have taught people for years about money-making opportunities and get rich quick schemes that have littered the internet since time began, (online that is).The making money online it’s easy, sit back and watch the money roll in, earn millions while sleeping or working ten minutes – all these tag lines.These taglines are correct, but only after a lot of work has done to set this business up to be at a stage where you will be making money in your sleep, etc.The reality is, if you want to start a business online, start making money online – you are going to have to put in a lot of work. Yes, you read correctly. You are going to have to put in a lot of work. Let’s face it. You are starting a business. Especially in beginning a business you are going to have to do a lot of work to get it up and running.There is going to have to be an investment. This investment would either be time, money or a combination of both. Just remember you are starting a business. Starting by not investing a lot of money – you would need to spend a lot of time. The reverse is true. The best option in my experience and from the mentors I follow is a little of both – time and money.Good mentors will help and guidance along the process, saving a lot of hassle, time and financial waste. However, you will need to be able to find these mentors, that could be difficult enough with every other website promising the world on a push button get rich quick scheme.I am thankful for being introduced to my mentor and have not looked back. When I met him, he told me I was going to have to do a lot of work. He didn’t shy away from this fact. I will have to put in the time. He also told me very clearly that I will have to invest some money.After all, I am starting a business, and these are two aspects many don’t mention or want to hear. The result is they get caught out and lose interest or end up losing money, wasting a whole lot of time only to have nothing to show for it. Therefore in the process, their confidence in any future online business in tatters.So if you can be honest with your self, you admit that you are going to have to put in some real work and invest some money. If you understand this simple point, you already have an advantage over most people who start online.Surprisingly today, people are still looking for that golden egg or easy money.No, it is not all doom and gloom. Although I don’t think that what I have just shared is doom and gloom, instead it should be a breath of fresh air and should fill you with excitement as I have just told you that if you are willing to put in the work and invest some money and stick with it, you will be successful.Now mentors like mine who have genuinely been successful in the area that they teach and have a passion for teaching others are invaluable to people who want to start a business online. You will be able to learn how to do things the right way rather than have to figure it out yourself. They will have developed processes and tools that they pass on to speed up the process and help build, once again, you don’t have to improve. However, more importantly, they will be able to guide and mentor you and invite you into the community they have created where people are helping each other to achieve their online business goals.Let’s admit it the first time you mentioned that you were starting an online business to your closest and dearest, be honest they were probably not that supportive and filled with excitement. Now that alone is one step closer to defeat for your online business dreams. However, with a ready-made community that are all interested in you succeeding in your online business goals and more often than not can help and guide you along the path to success, continuously encouraging and supporting you.If you would like to get introduced to my mentor who will tell you like it is, he will show you how to genuinely start and achieve success then click on the link below.
