Make Money Online – Really Works?

If you’re reading this, I assume you’re looking for either an answer to the question “Can I make money online?”, or maybe you’re even wondering if making money online is even worth it. Keep reading and you’ll find out what I think about the subject matter.

Does The Niche Matter?

I think it’s fair to say that there are a lot of make money online opportunities out there. Some are much better than others, however. If I had to give a solid answer to the question of whether or not to venture into a certain niche, my answer would be: it depends. Here are a few things to consider.

The Cost Of Creation

The first and most important thing to consider when deciding whether or not to create content for the sake of making money online is the cost of content creation. Some niches can be profitable, but a lot of effort and work is required. You’ll have to write a lot of content for the platform(s) you choose to promote your products on. This content will mostly be in the form of articles, but you’ll also have to produce video content, maybe even some podcasts, if you want to be successful.

The Competition

The second thing to consider is the competition. Is there already someone else creating the content you’re planning on creating? If so, where can you find your niche in the marketplace and how are you going to stand out from the crowd?

There are a lot of competitors out there. Even if you do create quality content, is it going to be enough to make a difference? You’ll have to do a lot of legwork to figure out what is and isn’t working for your competitors, so that you can zero in on the things that will work for you.

The Layers Of Marketing

The third thing to consider is the layers of marketing. What is your plan B? After you’ve established yourself as an expert in your chosen niche, what are you going to do to get the word out there?

This is where marketing comes in. You’ll have to get the word out there that you exist, and you’ll have to do it in a way that is compelling to your target audience. Let’s say you are a fitness instructor and you’ve created a blog for fitness instructors. Maybe you’ve even produced some online courses. You’ll want to find a way to get the word out there that you’re an expert. You might consider setting up a website, purchasing ads, or planning a social media strategy.

The Return On Investment (ROI)

The last and final thing to consider is the return on investment. Even if you create the best possible content, the most brilliant marketing strategy, and the most successful social media campaign; if you don’t make any money, all of that effort was worthless. Think about it this way: would you rather invest money into a venture that you know isn’t going to pay you back, or would you rather invest your money into a venture that you know is going to pay you back?

The first and most important thing to keep in mind when thinking about making money online is that it’s a numbers game. If you want to be financially successful, you’re going to have to put in the work to figure out what is and isn’t working, and you’re going to have to learn to trust your hunches. The second and most important thing to keep in mind is that it’s not just about money. You’re doing this because you want to share your expertise with the world, and you want to be able to help people. If you can find a way to monetize your hobby, that’s the best scenario. But if you don’t want to monetize your hobby, you shouldn’t feel bad. You’re still going to be able to help people, and you’re still going to be able to thrive as a content creator.
