The world is more connected than it was 5 or 10 years ago. The internet has taken most of the big businesses trading around the globe.
It is no doubt that making money online is booming real fast. Every other day creates many internet entrepreneurs, business, and people working from in the comfort of their homes – or the coffee shop in my case.
What used to be deemed by the society as a world filled with fraud and money taking schemes – all sorts of negative impression on the internet have now been replaced by praises? The internet has enabled people to escape or compliment their 9-5 job routine and create their own online income opportunity.
I am sure you have heard, many people are earning a lot of money from the internet. Making money online has been a dream for many since then the dawn of the internet. Whatever your end desire, it can be summarized as below on why many people want to start making money online.

With all the benefits above (and more!), it is no wonder more and more people are looking into making money online.
Here are the 3 myths I need to dispel about making money:
MYTH 1 – You need to be extremely good at programming and coding in order to make money online.
Not really, but knowing how to code can be an advantage but not a necessity. The internet is now in an era of drag and drop! To build an online presence, you don’t need to know how to write a single line of code.
Many times people have been told that to start making money online you will need to at least master the foundation of programming and all the technical knowledge. Truth be told and the good news is, you don’t have to! With all the technologies in place, you can create a website in less than 30 minutes without knowing how to code using platforms like WordPress.
MYTH 2 – You need to be selling a service.
By selling service you are exchanging time for money. You can’t pull yourself out from the equation when you sell a service. Simply put, you stop earning money online the moment you stop working. Make sense?
The better way would be to sell information products. Not only is the earning margin high, you can also automate the process. That means you can earn money even when you are away, even when you are not online, those who want your products can buy without your involvement – literally making money while you sleep.
MYTH 3 – You need to get a Master’s Degree in designing a website.
Scrap this. All you need is a good course that teaches you the right way of doing marketing online to drive traffic to your site or product link. Let’s face it, without traffic, your website is rendered useless. Marketing is the important puzzle that gives you revenue, not the look and feel of your website.
With these 3 MYTHS busted, I hope you can feel a sense of relief to start to make money online. As long as you put in the effort and are patient, you will see results.
Making money online is real. All you need to do is learn how to other people are making money online. Copy that, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
