Time or Money?

Which Can You Afford?

I get so many emails and questions asking me if I think someone should do PPC, or outsource articles, or purchase a pre-made website, or buy this program or that program, or do article marketing, or….or…..or…..or…..(you get my point). I know it can be difficult trying to decide where to start, what to buy, what NOT to buy, what’s worth it, what will work for you – but it really comes down to one question of yourself… Time? Or Money?

What Can You Afford?

Let’s put experience and all that aside for a moment and talk about the hard-core question that should be in the back of all our minds when choosing what to do to make money online.

It comes down to Your Time, or – Your Money.

Do you have more money than time? Or, more time than money?

For example, when I started, I had more time each day than I had money to risk. I couldn’t afford to do PPC -whether it was “easier” or “faster” or not – I simply didn’t have the money to risk, let alone the money to do it at all.

The biggest investment I could make on my new online business at that time was my time and my elbow grease – and I invested a LOT of both things!

As time went on, I managed to get to a place where I wanted to save time and I used money I had earned to do just that. I saved my time by getting good tools, by outsourcing, and now, by purchasing sites that are pre-made.

Before, when I had no money, I did all my research by hand using free tools. I made all my own sites, promoted my own sites, wrote for my own sites – all of it.

Was it the “fast” way? Was it the “best” way? No, probably not – but it was the ONLY way for ME.

Was it hard and frustrating when someone would offer to show me the light for only $700, $70….or even $7? Yes – because I didn’t have that money to spend in order to see that light. I had no option but to find the way myself.

We are all blessed with 1,440 minutes in each day – 24 hours. Those minutes were my investment into myself, my business, and my family’s future – and I invested as many of those minutes each day as I possibly could (and then some…lol).

But dollars were NOT an option. I had to invest alllllllll those minutes in order to eventually have the luxury of investing dollars to save minutes and hours.



You

So let’s talk about you – Before you make any choices about your online marketing future, ask yourself, “What can I really afford?”

Perhaps you only have 2-3 hours a day to work online, but you do have a little cash that you can invest into your business on things that will SAVE you TIME…

Perhaps you have alllll day to work, but you just can’t invest dollars now…

Perhaps you have time and some money….

It’s also possible that you have very little time each day – and no money to invest.

These are all very real situations that I hear about from very real people every, single day.

Which one are you?

If you have limited time to work (as in WORK…lol) and no money, then I recommend getting a plan and following it each day. Stop tormenting yourself with all the offers out there for things that you can’t have right now – and only work each day for the time you have.

If you have ALLLLL day, but no money, I recommend the same thing. Always keep note of the things that take the most time from your day so when you DO get money, you will know the things you need to save you TIME.

If you have some cash then think about investing in things that will save you time. What those things are truly depends on your experience and knowledge level in this industry. For example, perhaps you know how to do keyword research, but it’s taking a lot of your time. You would then look for a good keyword research tool that will do what YOU need done to save YOU time.

Can Having Money Accelerate Your Success?

That’s a good question – if you ARE able to buy things, does that mean you will succeed faster?

Statistically, I say NO.

Sadly, there are too many people out there who have spent thousands and thousands of dollars – and never really took any ACTION. It’s a sad cycle of buy this/try it a little…. move on and and buy that/try it a little…..and so on and so on and so on.

However, I do believe that those that make thoughtful purchases of things that they WILL use and know WILL save them time so they can be even MORE productive, will see faster results from their ACTIONS.

Money, alone, will not buy you success online.

YOU create your success – no matter WHAT your situation is.

Do you REALLY want to know what “works” to make money online?

YOU.
