“Everything that glitters is not gold” is the phrase that resonates to me when I come across the appealing ads and reels on how people can easily earn money online effortlessly. Not everyone and everything is fake, but it is a partial truth,with several layers of deception.
Is it really as simple as it sounds? Why do influencers and marketing experts only talk about the advantages of different money-making methods? They often keep quiet about the time, effort, and even money that needs to be invested. Those who work regular 9 to 5 jobs are often easy targets because they feel bored and unfulfilled in their repetitive jobs. After all, who wouldn’t want quick and easy money-making techniques that allow you to earn from the comfort of your own home?
Thinking about setting up a passive income stream isn’t a bad idea, but if you’re planning to quit your job, it’s important to be prepared. Here are a few essential things you should consider before diving into influencer marketing, affiliate marketing, Instagram marketing, or any other money-making technique.
1. Sufficient understanding:
Make sure you gather enough information about how to begin, who your target audience is, the competition already out there, and how big the market is. Without doing proper research and being aware, achieving success can be quite challenging.
2. Developing Skills:
Doing everything on your own can be quite challenging, but luckily, you have online resources that allow you to outsource certain tasks and make things easier. However, it would be an added advantage in the long run if you possess the skills required to handle those tasks yourself.. Specifically, skills like photography, content writing, programming, and website designing can earn you a decent income.
Don’t expect an immediate return on investment (ROI) as soon as you start implementing your strategies. Is it impossible? No, some people achieve quick fame and recognition on social media. However, if your goal is to generate passive income, you need to dedicate extra time apart from your regular job.
4. Consistent Efforts:
Consistency is crucial because people often lose patience and motivation when results take time. Stay committed and maintain consistent efforts, regardless of the immediate outcomes.
So, in simple terms, nothing is impossible, but nothing comes easily either. Research, plan, execute, and upgrade your strategies, then wait for the results. Additionally, keep upgrading your skills and knowledge to match the evolving preferences of your audience or clients.
If you’re unsure about which passive income method suits your preferences or skills, you can consider the following options:
– Taking surveys
– Designing logos
– Affiliate Marketing
– Starting a YouTube channel
– Social media influencing
– Designing gift cards or postcards on platforms like Amazon
– Private tutoring
– Creating and selling artwork
– Graphic designing
– Product reviewing and testing
