Don’t Give Up After a Month


A lot of people searching to make an income online wants to make money quick. Who wouldn’t, right? If you are looking to legitimately make an income online, it doesn’t happen overnight. Most people give up after a month if they are not making an income online. My suggestion to you is don’t give up after a month. Below are some things I have experienced during my online journey.

Anyone that advertises that you can make money quick is lying

I have been there. They show you a large amount of money you can make, but once you pay into the program, you are not told what type of work you will be doing. When you are desperate, you hope for it to be real but then it’s too late.


Give it a year before you decide to quit

I have been working on making an income online for 9 months now. I have made some income, but it isn’t enough to make it a full time income. I still have a job I have to physically go to, so my progress is a little slower than someone who can work online full time. I believe if I had more time, I would be making more income online by now.

Find a legitimate program that works

If you fall into a scam program, of course you will give up after a month or less. It’s a waste of your money and your time. That was one of the reasons why I gave up 16 years ago. Luckily I found a program that works and helped me build the foundation of my online business. To learn more about the program, read my review.

Depending on how many hours you work on your business online will reflect how much you will make.


Use a keyword tool

When you write your posts, you want your target audience to find your posts.With a keyword tool, this helps you read the minds of your target audience and see how many people are searching those keywords. To learn which keyword tool I use, ready my review.

Get Google indexed

Indexing in Google is important. When you search for something, the results page shows up. You want to be indexed in the first page in order to have a chance for your audience to find you. You lose out on making money if you are not on the first page. Do you click on page 2 of your search results? I find what I am searching for less relevant after page 1.

Keep on learning

There is new information to learn everyday. The more valuable your information is, the more trust you will gain through your audience. Gaining trust of your audience will most likely have them return to your website and refer people they know to your websites, too.


Stay positive

I surround myself around positive people, because we all know how draining negative people are. Being around positive people helps you stay motivated. You don’t want anyone bringing you down or trying to make you fail in your goals.

It gets worse before it gets better

When I first started building a business online, I faced some challenges, but once I overcame them, it got better. I did not major in computers, but I knew the basics. As long as you know how to read and follow directions, you can get through it too.

People give up when things get hard

In all situations, if you don’t put an effort and quit just because things are hard, that needs to change. If you really want to make an income online, quitting is not an option. You have to work hard to see results.


Your hard work is paying off

Doesn’t it feel great when you get a sale? It just shows what you are doing is working and you need to continue working at it. Google likes it when your website is active, so keep working on your website.

Final thoughts

When I first started my website, one of my posts was on page 10 in Google. As I added more posts, comments and content, my post gradually increased to page 1. That was when I started seeing my work pay off. When it was on page 10, I did not see any results.

It took 5 months before I got a sale. Initially, I spent 4 hours a day, sometimes 8 hours a day to get things set up and learn how to build and customize my website. Lately, I spend a few hours or less a day due to my work schedule. I wish I had more time to work online, but I have to stick with what brings in a guaranteed income until I am making a full time income online.

When things got hard, I did have a thought of quitting in the back of my head, but I stopped myself from quitting. I am glad I didn’t quit after a month, because I would be regretting it like when I did 16 years ago. If I had stuck to it back then, I wonder how successful I would be by now?

    I work a full-time job as well so it is difficult to devote the hours that I want to on my website. I make it a priority to take advantage of writing and scheduling posts on my days off. It has been working well for me so far except for when I have errands or appointments to take care of. It gets frustrating at times, but like you, I refuse to give up!

      Thanks for commenting. Unfortunately, we can’t just focus on one thing and one thing only. We have responsibilities to take care of before we can focus on other things. That’s great you refuse to give up. Be patient and your work will pay off.
