The great business opportunities on the Internet really do exist and the millionaires on the Internet prove it.
Many of these digital businesses really work but unfortunately, there is also a lot of noise and supposed misconceptions.
That’s why in this post I’ll talk clearly about the myths of how to make money on the Internet and tell you without reservation what really works and what doesn’t.
I will tell you how you can get started and what you will need to invest in time, money and knowledge to get real results and avoid falling into market traps of which there are many.
Let’s start by getting to know and understand some common myths related to Internet business:
Everyone Can Make Money Online
Many so-called gurus offer you that you can earn thousands of dollars easily and overnight on the Internet, which is completely false.
In fact, although anyone can build an online business, it requires at least a minimal technical background to do so and some knowledge to understand how the Internet works.
Nothing you can’t learn but it certainly requires many hours of dedication and learning. Someone who is not willing to learn and pay the price will hardly be able to do so.
You can build an online business without investing a single cent
This is another of the common arguments you’ll find all over the network. Hundreds of offers that you can make yourself a mega-entrepreneur online, with no investment or with very little investment.
This is partially true because I would say that as in any business, you always need to invest time and money.
Although I recognize that some online business models do have the particularity that they can grow very fast and even a novel idea can be a boom.
However, building a blog, an online store or any other concept requires at least some initial investment and a maintenance budget.
You can make a lot of money online very quickly
Can you imagine what person on the planet wouldn’t want to make a lot of money quickly?
If this were so true, no one would have a traditional job. What happens in part is that there are a few who have managed to make a lot of money in a short time, but they are the exceptions and not the rule.
Companies like Instagram, Google or Uber are just a few examples. We would, therefore, say that with the right concept and an innovative idea it could be achieved.
Just answer surveys, surf the web, or receive emails.
The bad thing about these online offerings is that they are just hooks to attract naive, inexperienced people to do the work for others.
You can see our analysis of these options in my post options to earn fast money.
So, if so many myths are false, why are so many people offering this on the web?
It’s very simple, unfortunately, there are many people who take advantage of the lack of knowledge and the need of so many entrepreneurs who live on selling courses, videos, ebooks and supposed tutorials that teach you how to earn money on the web “quickly and without investment”.
Many of them haven’t even built anything, but they say they’re experts at teaching you how to do it.
What they do is persuade you with a series of manipulated, often false, arguments to convince you to buy their “secrets” of how to make thousands of dollars in a few weeks and be the next Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook.

This does not mean that there is not excellent quality material on the web. It simply requires some experience to differentiate who offers you something useful and real from who does not.
So, to return to the thinking I started with, there are many good opportunities for doing business on the web, which we discuss below.
Starting Your Internet Business
Entrepreneurship on the Internet is quite similar in some respects to starting a business in the traditional way.
As in any business, it is extremely important to start by knowing and documenting the role of the business you wish to enter. So if you’re really interested in starting to build something on the web, here are some initial tips:
