Don't Be Fooled

"You can fool some of the people all the time, you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time". Abe Lincoln

This is very evident if you try to find a way to make money on the internet. Every day I see people looking for the fast buck on the internet. Easy money. Something for nothing. Free.

Now, this article can go two ways. So it will.

The first direction is this: Investigate.

When you see something on the internet or in your E-mail, be skeptical. You will get offers of things you never wanted nor asked for, so don't bother with them. The offers will range from "Free Trial" to "Limited Time to Apply". You probably already know these are catch phrases, so don't be baited into something.

You will also see things to "Invest in Your Future", for a small investment, you will make $fillintheblank$. They will promise you a large ROI (Return on Investment). The only one going to make the Big Bucks and get the Giant ROI is them.

I have written about different companies I feel are Scams and which I think are legitimate. There is a list of them on my Website. Visit there if you have questions about certain companies.

You can also check them at the Better Business Bureau's Online site, or try typing the "Company Name Scam" in any of the Search Engines.

These companies are only throwing something at the wall and hoping that some of it sticks. Check them out thoroughly before jumping in with both feet and getting in over your head.

The second direction is: Work Hard, Nothing is Free.

Form a game plan. No viable business, online or otherwise will succeed unless you have a direction you want the company to go. Most times it takes a lot of research to find what you are looking for.

You need to have an idea of what you want to do, your customers needs, where you want to be in a given amount of time. Before you start make sure you have direction.

Use the Search Engines, look up the type of business you have or want to start. See what the competition is doing. How are they advertising? What keywords did you use to find them? Do you have a better idea, product, service? What did you like (dislike) about their setup?

Use this information to your advantage. Select keywords that are relevant to your product or service. It is difficult to be original, but you know your company better than anyone else, so use a description that fits your unique style.

Design your Webpage with the same concept in mind. It is difficult to be unique in the multitude of websites on the internet, but think of what best fits your style. If you need to hire a website designer, it could be money well spent. If you can do it yourself, then by all means do it, but look around to see what's out there.

When you are trying to conduct a Work at Home Business, don't look for an easy way out. There is no easy way out. There are a lot of get rich quick schemes, lots of "opportunities" and empty promises. But, the only way to succeed is through Hard Work.

Don't be one of the ones that are fooled. Period.
