"Make Money Online" Industry - Newbie Friendly or No?

An interesting topic was brought to my attention today. Is the online money making industry newbie friendly? There are some varying opinions on this. Some people say yes because there is so much information available and if the newbie goes into online money making ventures with the right mindset, they will succeed.

However, I have to disagree. I think that the online money making industry is very unfriendly to newbies. In fact, I would say that the amount of information available is a disadvantage in and of itself. I remember back when the thought of making money online first occurred to me. I eagerly logged onto google and searched the typical keywords "how to make money online." Google should have stopped me right there with WARNING: INFORMATION OVERLOAD.

There are so many ways to make money online-- surveys, affiliate marketing, home based businesses, cash gifting, MLMs, softwares, ebooks... the list could go on and on! As a newbie, it's completely overwhelming. And what's worse is that 90% of the information that you're overloaded with is complete crap. It's filled with overly hyped products and unrealistic promises of money. So many new people fall for it because they want it to be true, and they don't have the experience to know better. After enough screen shots and testimonials, they come to believe that it's true.

Unfortunately, after they invest in this overly hyped system or program, they find that success is much more difficult to attain than they were led to believe. This causes most of the newbies to get discouraged and quit.

Another thing that troubles me about the "make money online" industry, and, in particular, the online business opportunities, is how empty the promise of "team work" so often is. Several MLM and business opportunities that I've looked into harp on how they all work together, when, in reality, everyone else in the business is your competition! I think this fake "team" is detrimental to people new to the industry.

As someone who was new to this industry, and who is still learning new things everyday, I believe that newbies need very specific things to succeed. The first thing they need is a plan. There are so many products to promote, businesses to join, and ways to advertise. They need to be able to create a game plan so they can narrow their focus. It's a lot easier to succeed if you're focused on one or two things than if you're bouncing from program to program or method to method.

The second thing they need is support. Whether this support comes from a mentor or from joining a program where people actually do work together as a team. Support is important, because there are going to be times when you struggle, and you're going to need to lean on that support system. If newbies have both of these things, it's much more likely that they will be able to achieve their goals.
