        For the Last Time ... There Is No Magic Wand!

        "I'm looking for a program that will make me enough money
        so that I can quit my job.  I need about $2,000 a week.  I have
        to give a month's notice at work.  Will I be making that with
        your program by then?"

        "I just lost my job and I need to make a lot of money fast to
        pay off my debts.  How quickly can I make $35,000?"

        "I'm new to the internet.  Can I really make $200 a day with
        your program?"

        These are real extracts from three emails I received this week.
        This week was no different from any other week.  My
        respective responses to the above three were "no", "not" and
        "yes, eventually" (to paraphrase).  To each, I sent a lengthy
        response explaining what they should realistically expect to
        generate from each of the programs in question.  I didn't hear
        back from any of them.  No doubt they've given up or have
        moved on to someone who will tell them what they want to hear.

        I've lost count of the number of conversations like this I've
        had over the past months.  Too many.  I'm sick of the
        sound of my own voice, saying the same thing, over and
        over.  So, this article is a summary of all of the advice I
        keep giving over and over and is my response in advance to
        all future queries that fit the "how soon can I get rich" mold.

        1.  There Is No Such Thing As Get Rich Quick

        You will NOT make $50,000 in 60 days.  You will probably
        not make $50,000 in 600 days.  If you are very new to
        the internet you will be doing VERY well to make $500 in
        60 days.  But you probably won't even have worked out what
        you want to do before then anyway.  Some people don't
        EVER make enough money to cover their webhosting and
        ISP fees.

        2.  Your Computer Is Not An ATM, Nor Is Your Letterbox

        Your computer is not a money-spitting machine.  It is a
        tool for conducting your business.  Your business is something
        you create with your own hard work and ingenuity using the
        tools you have at your disposal and your own natural talent.
        Your business, if your hard work pays off, will generate income
        for you but cash will never spew forth from the CD ROM drive.

        Your letterbox is not an ATM either.  You will not go to your
        mailbox tomorrow morning and find a stack of cash in
        there either.  I don't care WHAT you've heard.

        3.  You Have To Work Every Day

        You will NOT make money while you sleep.  If you make
        hay while the sun shines you may wake many days later to
        find orders in your mailbox.  But those orders have come from
        your haymaking efforts, not by some process of osmosis
        while you were sleeping.

        4.  You Have to Sow Before You Can Reap

        You cannot reap what you have not sown.  You will NOT
        receive orders for your you-beaut internet rags to riches
        widget by slapping up a webpage with a link to your credit
        card processor.  You must invest real time and real
        effort into creating a real product that people are interested
        in acquiring and then you must let real people know that
        it exists.

        This is seriously hard work.  A self-replicating website
        and a few classified ads in half a dozen ezines does not
        equal real time and real effort and, often, it doesn't equal
        a real product either.

        5.  You Have to Create Your Own Website

        Affiliate programs are a good way to get your feet wet
        with internet marketing.  But they won't make you
        any serious money until you create your own website
        with quality content that draws targeted traffic.

        6.  You Have to Create Your Own Product(s)

        Even when you have created your own website with
        quality content that draws targeted traffic, your income
        from affiliate programs will be limited.  The lion's share
        of the profits is going to the owner of the affiliate
        program.  You are working on commission.

        To make serious money on the internet, you need to
        develop your own product or service and keep the lion's
        share of the profit.  Then YOU can set up your OWN
        affiliate program and get everyone else to sell it for you
        for a commission.

        7.  You Have To Run Your Business As A Business

        Your internet business is a business.  It is not a hobby
        (unless you aren't making any money, THEN it's a
        hobby).  So run it as a business.  That means being
        professional and customer-oriented.  It means exercising
        good business judgement and it means expecting to
        be around this time next year.

        8.  You Will Be Dealing With Real, Live People

        When you receive orders or emails, they will be sent by
        people, not machines.  Respond accordingly.

        9.  Don't Give Up Your Day Job ... Yet

        It will take you a long time, probably many months,
        before you will be earning from your online business what
        you are currently earning in your job.  So, if you're making
        $2,000 a week in your job, you won't be giving it up any
        time soon.

        10. You Will Have To Be Patient

        On the internet, the time moves as fast as it does anywhere
        else.  No faster.  When you start a business offline, it takes
        time, many months usually, before the business starts to take
        off.  It is the same on the internet.  The only thing that's fast
        on the internet is the websurfer's index finger on the mouse
        button.  Making money is as slow online as it is offline.

        11. You Will Have to Persevere

        There will be times when you feel like you're just not getting
        anywhere.  You will feel like quitting then.  Most do, in fact.
        Don't be one of them.

        12. If You Use Unscrupulous Tactics You Will FAIL

        Some people decide that the real world does not apply to
        them and that they can get rich without investing time or effort.
        These people tell everyone whatever they want to hear to make
        a sale.

        These same people buy bulk email and harvesting software
        so they can go around gathering up all the email addresses
        they can find to send their sales message to.  These people
        figure if only one percent of these 100,000 names respond
        that's a good return.  They are wrong.  What happens is
        they get bombarded with hate mail and shut down by their ISP.
        Their business is snuffed out in an instant.

        13. There is no magic wand

        Get it?  Got it?  Good!
