My First Venture Into “Making Money Online”

September 11, 2008 | By | 3 Replies More

The very first “money making program” I came across in my humble beginnings was – DATA ENTRY BUSINESS. It sounded good, solid, easy and with literally no knowledge required.

They say all you have to do is to fill out simple web forms and can easily make $30 – $50 per form or so. No internet knowledge etc. required. Sounds like a great idea for someone like me who has no prior experience, right?

Oh boy, was I disappointed! I tried very hard to make it work, but I have to say the instructions were anything but easy to follow for a newbie. When I read them now I have to laugh, because now they seem very easy, but back then  it was a nightmare. Basically, I never got it to work and called it quits after about 1 1/2 months.

What I found out afterwards? – Data Entry Jobs are nothing else but promoting other peoples products in sponsored Google ads with pay-per-click.  You don’t need a Data Entry Membership to do that! Also, I find it incredible that these companies make it sound so easy! PPC is anything but! It is a whole science in itself, it is what so many manuals have been written about, what every marketer out there is trying to master.

Review of Data Entry Business

To me now it feels like I was set up, and potentially could have lost a lot of money. When they said you can make $30 – $50 per form, that is if you actually make a sale. It doesn’t count in though the money you have to spend to get there.

So, my experience has taught me to stay clear from Data Entry Jobs.
My Loss for this project:    $64.07 AUD (Australian Dollars) for signing up for the site.

      Yo, I am going to be honest with you (because that’s just how I am 😉 ) – I have not bought the software website personally because I simply have so many other things going and I decided at the time that I do not have time for anything else. Now Dave Nicholson is a good friend and business partner of John Thornhill, and if you read my blog you might have seen that John Thornhill has been my mentor for the past 8 months or so. I have come to know what John Thornhill is about and believe in what he does and recommends. He has recommended Dave Nicholsons Software website to me, so I am confident that it is a good product, even if I didn’t buy it. If you buy a product like this though you have to be very aware of one thing, and that is that you need to be able to get lots of traffic to the site. If you can get lots of – targeted – traffic to your site, it will work. But with no traffic, no matter how good and easy to maintain the site is, it will not make you any money. And the traffic generation is up to you. I hope this helps!
