How To Make Money From Passions

To make money online many people jump right in before they are properly prepared. You know that to be a rocket scientist, a doctor, a brick layer, a construction worker, an office worker, a teacher, there are prerequisites, things you must learn, before you can be successful, you don’t just jump right in unprepared.

The same applies to the Internet marketing industry even though there are unsavory people out there who’d have you believe it’s a “Walk in the Park” and requires no more than the belief that you can just do it.

And I’ll have to admit, it is a walk in the park compared to what you have to put up with in the working world punching a clock being a subordinate to someone who does not have your interests in mind, but there are still rules you have to follow and pitfalls you must avoid to actually make Internet marketing work for you.

Most people will not make a dime online and yet there are others who will make more in one month than most people make in a whole year. Why is that?

My answer begins with the age-old chicken or egg question, “What comes first the chicken or the egg”? Personally I vote for, well never mind, each argument you or I make comes back to the same old conclusion – I have no clue and I don’t think many of us do either.

But one thing I do have a clue about and know for sure is that to make money online you must first have Passion for the company, products and/or service of any Internet business from which you expect to make money.

Personally, I love programming and working on the computer… I started 26 years ago at age 12. Do do something that long you have to love it. And that’s why I started out my online business by selling software products I created until I moved on to create software that runs in membership sites.

Passion in this sense simply means that you’ve researched and like the company and products or services. It is then that you translate that like (or Passion) into the education, excitement and work that usually accompany Passion.

I will have to say that many online entrepreneurs are so good at what they do that they ignore passion because they can sell anything. But I’m concerned about those of you who are not so knowledgeable at working an online business successfully.

Now, I’m not trying to make anyone believe that Passion is the only thing necessary. Because to be successful you must also have a good website, good marketing, widespread advertising, company support, effective keywords, and etc. Those things are often learned from the company you join – but sidestep Passion and you reduce your chances for success dramatically.

It therefore follows that, if you have no Passion for the company and the products and services provided by that company, again, you won’t attempt to do the work you are being taught.

Internet marketing work is typically not all that difficult or time consuming but it does take motivation caused by Passion to get you off and running with a sustained effort so that you won’t stumble.

You have a great resource in the Internet search engines to search about the Internet Marketing industry for business opportunities, USE IT!

Your research should uncover a company that you like and have confidence in. It should be solid, founded on great principles, and easy to understand with great products and services that are sell-able for which you can have Passion. If you don’t find it move on, you can find the right opportunity containing the attributes identified above.

Comments like, well, that one sounds good and the compensation plan is excellent so I guess I’ll start that business – does not sound like a decision based on anything near Passion. And remember when you hear that an Internet “guru” does that, don’t be tempted, because as I said earlier they are experienced and can sell just about anything, without being Passionate about the company products and services.

Note: By the way it’s your goal to get to the point where you can sell about anything online. That end skill and goal is a worthy one indeed.

Remember, there are other steps you must make before you step into Internet Marketing but if you don’t first find the right company products and services to be passionate about, all of those other steps may just cause you a lot of frustration instead of bringing you great success.

Not being Passionate about a company and products and services that has market proof that it will sell is a pitfall you simply must avoid.

Viktor says:

Thank you for nice article! Very motivational! I was thinking about changing my career when you posted this article – perfect timing

Frank Bauer says:

You are very welcome Viktor.

normz2 says:

You are right. You should have a passion for what you do. In internet marketing there is quite a learning curve that everyone talks about. It is not until you are near the top of the curve that you can tell where you should be going.

Frank Bauer says:

True, the learning curve is certainly there an not small.

What I like about Internet Marketing is that the knowledge can be acquired while feeding your family from your day-time job. Then once your Internet Marketing income get’s closer to your day-time job income, you can consider to do the switch and by then being able to put more hours into your Internet Marketing business… really excel it.

NUMEROLOGIST Michael Searles says:

I like reading your stuff Frank – thank you.
‘Passion’ is an interesting word.
I have often seen the word ‘passion’ used numerous times whenever reading books and blogs about getting started in internet marketing.
One of the commonly regurgitated pieces of advice to aspiring online marketers is:
‘Find your passion and turn it into a product’, or words to this affect.
I have plodded a long and sometimes rocky road over the last two years pursuing my fortunes online. Many times I have come back to that advice.
But I now lean away from the advice of ‘find your passion’ etc.
If I had an absolute newbie ask me today about the best ways to get started online selling a newly created product, I would answer:
‘Discover the unmet passions of other people and set about creating a product or service to help them fulfill their passions’.
Yep, the sage advice of Napoleon Hill still stands true today, ‘Find a need and fill it’.
So Frank, today when I think about ‘passions’ and making money online, I forget about my own passion and continue digging to find the passions of others.

Frank Bauer says:

I can see your point Michael, there is just one problem about not being passionate about what you are doing to build your Internet Marketing business…

If you are not passionate about it, you are more likely to give up while traveling along that “rocky road”.

If you are passionate about it, then no matter how long it takes… you will simply refuse to give up and as a result, will only be able to succeed!
