Get rich real quick!

But first I want to tell you about how really cool I am and about all the stuff I'm going to ask people to buy before they leave! It's impossible not to like me because I know so much and I'm a millionnaire.

Wow, MacOS is really cool and Apple Macs are so reliable that they just want you to take your pants off! Ha, you read it - I distracted you!

Of course the idea is to make a lot of money easily and without having to work hard. Ideally it should be possible to take a shortcut to success and to win a fortune without much difficulty. But let's have a think about this philosophically; if it was possible to win in life by a short-cut, there would surely have to be a rush to do it. Gambling is an immediate possibility, as it's possible to make a vast fortune easily just by being lucky! However, experience tells the wise that what usually happens is that they do not become rich! But then again, a few do, it has to be said. So, my advice is: Don't gamble more than you can afford to lose! Similarly with any scheme which purports to do something miraculous, you should look at it carefully, think about it, don't take unnecessary risks. Then again, it's poor form to be totally sceptical and assume that no scheme will work. Remember: Alchemists failed to make GOLD, but technology has now advanced to the level where diamonds can be manufactured by a machine!

Now there is a list of opportunities in this GET RICH category. Some of them promise loads of money, some a way of beating the odds, some huge amounts of Internet traffic, or maybe just a relatively modest "something for nothing". I do not assume any of these to be good or bad, and I do not preach or disparage the repute of any of these. It's up to you to do what you want at your own risk.

Although the golden glow of the Internet has tarnished and many once-promising companies are now historical footnotes, some businesses are actually making money online, particularly in the business-to-business arena. For e-businesses that offer products and services to consumers, the jury is still out. Books, CDs, software, computer hardware and travel services sell well, but the bottom line is that few are getting rich.

One prevailing Internet myth--now soundly debunked--has been that once people discover your website, the money rolls in. As many failed entrepreneurs now know, it's hardly that easy. Hundreds of thousands of e-commerce websites are already online. Getting people's attention requires plenty of advertising, even if your website is branded with a name like Disney or Barnes and Noble. There's a rough road ahead, so don't count on your site becoming the Times Square of the Internet unless you really work at it. But you can make money in cyberspace, particularly if you run a lean operation. Here are three ways businesses generate income.

Selling Products Online

Thousands of e-stores now thrive on the Web, providing people with a way to purchase goods and services electronically. For small businesses, the Internet can deliver a global market. Depending on which survey you believe, that may be more than 950 million people worldwide who use the Internet. On an typical day, an estimated 61 million Americans go online. If the demographics of the online community match your customer profile, that's a lot of potential new business. While the promise is there, challenges loom large.

First of all, how do your potential customers learn about your website? That can be difficult given the amount of online clutter. To attract customers, you have to aggressively market your website. While guerrilla strategies keep costs down, running a promotional campaign, buying ads, either in print or online, can be costly.

Second, what kind of products do you sell? The answer is critical, because online shoppers are reluctant to buy big ticket items, such as furniture. The exception seems to be computer equipment. What's selling well? Airline tickets, hotels rooms, music CDs, books and software--commodity items that are already familiar. While online sales are growing rapidly, it still represents a small percentage of overall retail sales.

Remember, it takes time for people to adopt to new technology and modes of transactions. Many people remain reluctant to give out their credit card numbers over the Internet. But most analysts project healthy growth for online sales, especially as security issues are addressed.
