Those days there was only one internet service provider in India (VSNL now owned by TATA) a central government company. It took about two months to get my connection and the speed was something which we cannot imagine these days. Even if we don’t talk about the speed, it was nearly impossible to get connected to the internet. I used to wake up at 3 am and try connecting to the internet (Dial up) and forget about downloading files which are even 1mb, it would take hours.
Things have changed now, we have very high speed internet connection, wireless internet, 3G dongles, broadband and you get internet everywhere in India.
After we learned using internet, we really started thinking of doing business using internet and there came many e-commerce websites, blogging, making money online, Google Adsense, etc. In the year 2002, I joined my first online money making mission, the company vanished after I received my first payment after working for about 3 months which was not even equal to half the money that I paid to join the program. Many such companies came with offering home jobs online which collected some initial registration fees and made money. There was also a boom of Multi Level Marketing which really worked well for some and most lost money in these programs too and I am also one of them. We join the program when we see successful people and we feel cheated when we lose money.
As years passed, I learned a lot from these scams and I started my own home jobs business in the year 2005. I again experienced the pros and cons of these programs making me much stronger to learn what I should really do to make real money from the Internet. Now for the past 4 years, I make real money from different methods. I do sell my own products, write content, sell e-books and many more things which fetches me a good money from the Internet business.
I have started a dedicated blog where I will be sharing my experience and knowledge to tell my visitors “How I make money online” and how can they get into online business and make a decent income out of it.
I will be updating this blog with at least 3 posts a week going into my history of online ventures, things that you should look before you join a program so that you do not get frustrated with your online business. So stay tuned in – You can expect some interesting posts very soon.
