Many people I come across have been asking me how long before they can start making money online?.

Most of them have been struggling with their jobs – either making ends meet or finding multiple ways to become financially free.

Believe me, when somebody asks me this question, I certainly understand where they are coming from; where the skepticism is rooted.

Of course, nobody (especially under financial strain) would want to invest his time, effort, and money over something that isn’t guaranteed. Everybody wants assurance, a time-frame, a few words to keep their hopes up.

We all want to know what’s the ROI and the Pay back Period so to speak.

And if you’re a good business person that makes a lot of sense and you should asks those questions.

But in most things we all know there IS NO GUARANTEE.

What they don’t realize is how much of themselves is required to reap the results they have imagined, which we will talk about later…

But First….

This may be the first time you’re visiting my site, so let me introduce myself to you.

My name is Hilary.

I am a wife and a mom of two who has found her place under the sun as a Digital Marketing Specialist.

I am a former engineer and have worn many hats  prior to finding my passion of dominating the Internet and helping like-minded moms like me earn from the comforts of their homes.


So How Long Does It Take To Start Earning As A Work-from-Home Mom

 Getting back to the topic, this question, in reality, is a very tricky one.

If you want to catch the summary you can always watch the video below.

But how long depends…..

While it depends on certain factors such as:

  1.  What you are selling
  2. The conversion rate/marketability of what you’re selling and
  3. The number of your followers,

will play a crucial part in your very own success just like any other endeavors in life.

There is no overnight success

What you should do first is to erase all your expectations and realize that there is no overnight success.

I am sorry to burst your bubble but it does take a little while to penetrate the digital marketing space and start earning money from it.

This will save you from feeling very disappointed about your results when you have done everything that you thought is needed to be done with all your energy.

Numbers Are Everything


How many times have you heard about this? Let me tell you, unless you truly learn what this means, you will never stop encountering this.


You want to make a dollar, right?

Then you have to build your numbers.

What does this mean?

To be able to make a dollar, you have to talk to a certain number of people consistently.

That’s how it goes in Internet marketing.

You just don’t think of a business idea, build a website, and let it do the handyman’s work for you.

You have to invest in people – build a list and establish your relationship with them.


The Answer We’re All Waiting For…..

So, how long is it really going to take Hilary?

I know you’ve been waiting for me to answer this question.

Basically, it will be as long as it takes you to:

  1. Learn how to generate a list
  2. Build a relationship with your list
  3. Consistently sell to that list.

So, if you think it will take you five years to learn to do it, then don’t expect to make a single penny dollar from now for the next four years and eleven months.

If you find it difficult to generate a list, believe me, you will find it even harder to establish a relationship with your list and make them buy what you offer.

If you could do these three things the shortest amount of time possible, the better, because that’s when you would start earning legit money online.

Sounds, exciting huh?


Can You Really Make Money Online From A List?


Even if I already spilled the three key secrets to making money online, you may still be asking;

“Can I really make money online by having a list?”

The answer is yes, you can!

I know it because I have mentored people who are now making money online and I myself have been earning dollars too by following these steps.

You can’t just build a list and forget about the second step.

You have to establish genuine relationships with your list to be able to sell to them.


Perhaps you’d say, “I got about 5,000 people in my list but none of them buys what I offer”.

Obviously, something is wrong…

Maybe you haven’t developed positive relationships with your list.

Maybe you haven’t cared enough.

Maybe you haven’t emphasized the solution you have for their problems.

A lot of maybe’s…

You know, to be able to establish a relationship with your list, you have to identify their needs; you have to tap their emotions.


The money is in the RELATIONSHIP with Your List

You see, my point is that when I say “numbers are everything”, it isn’t just literally the number of subscribers you have but the quality of your relationships with that number.

Every sale I’ve ever made, was not because of the thousands of people on my list but because of the relationship I have developed either online or offline with them,enough for them to trust me and buy what I offer.

That’s my secret.

I care about my list.

I take time to understand what they need and provide solutions through my products or services.


It is all about committing yourself to generating your list and making sure you build quality relationships the shortest possible time.

This is how you start earning $$$.


Now, are you ready to create your own list and establish your relationship with them?

Are you willing to do what it takes to develop a relationship with your prospects, with your leads?

If you are willing to do this and you are willing to put in the time and effort to do this, then I’m going to guarantee you that it won’t take long for you to make money online.

And guess what the easy part is that I can show you how! Just schedule your strategy session with me after answering a few questions!
