Most of my readers know Smart Affiliate Hub provides information and recommendations on how to make money online. As much as I would like to say, you can make lots of money by signing up for my free eBook and joining my recommended platform. It’s just not reality and I strive for transparency. Sure, I can make a few more sales by over-hyping the industry, but I much rather have happy readers who are going to return to check out my blog.

This is a response to a few existing and perhaps future readers who have sent me emails stating that it is impossible to make money online.


How come I’ve purchased your recommended product(s), where is the money? How come I’m still not seeing the return on investment?

At the end of this article, you should have a pretty clear understanding of why most people fail to make money online and how you can prevent yourself from falling into that category.

Most People Don’t Put In The Effort

Usually when I get emails asking me why they are not making money after paying for my recommended product and services. I would always ask if they’ve started applying what they’ve learned. You see, I do track each and every reader who takes the first step and that is to sign up for my usual “free” recommended platform.

I can track if they’ve started their first website. It takes about 30 seconds to set up and you will have a fully operational website/blog. What’s even better is, if you signed up for my recommended platform, the website hosting is free!—Starter membership provides you with 2 free websites plus hosting. To my surprise, less than 80 percent actually sets up their first website.

Most People Are Consumers, Not Producers

If you want to make money online, you don’t want to only be a consumer. You want to be a producer as well! When you sign up for my recommended platform, you are the consumer. What you’re going to get out of it is how to become a producer, so you can start making money.

A lot of people spend too much time and money buying different products that claim to make them rich overnight. The only people making money are the ones behind those products. The consumers, on the other hand, are the ones spending money.

There’s no get-rich-quick method, so it’s best to get out of that mentality and stick with what’s realistic. The things I recommend will eventually make you money, but it does require your effort.

The Gambling or Lottery Mentality

When people tell me that they’ve purchased my recommended platform, but they’re not making any money. First of all, most of these people haven’t even set up their first website. I usually categorize these people in the gambling or lottery mentality.

A person with a gambling or lottery mentality:

  • I’ll go and buy a lottery ticket and if I win, I’ll become rich!
  • I’ll spend money on Eric’s recommended platform and the money will come raining down on me!

There is no magic bullet when it comes to my recommended product and services. What you’re getting is a real legitimate way to start an internet business, so you can live a life with little to no restrictions.

Like any business, it requires customers, repeat customers, ongoing effort, and ongoing expenses. It’s not like buying a lottery ticket, where you spend the money and you’ll either win or lose. If you want to make money online, you need to have a business mentality, not a gambling or lottery mentality.


When it comes to making money online, you are your worst enemy. First of all, you do need to put in the effort! I use this example a lot, but it makes sense. Making money online is similar to working out and getting fit. Most of us would love to be physically fit, but not many of us are willing to endure the process of getting fit.

As the producer, I can provide you with the best type of training with all the secrets revealed. It won’t get you very far though if you’re just going to consume the information and not produce the work. Again like working out, paying for the gym membership is not enough. You have to actually work out if you hope to see results.

Lastly, your mentality is very important. That’s why I always emphasize that my information or recommended product and services are not in any way going to get you rich quick. For those who are looking for instant gratification, you are better off working a regular 9 to 5-day job or going to the casino.

Hopefully, this answered most of your questions as to why you are not making money online. There are no secrets, it’s just up to you to decide if you want to be successful at it.

Most of my recommended product and services are FREE especially my recommended platform. It comes with free online training! You can learn more about this training course by clicking on the laptop image below:

Are you interested in learning more? If you haven’t already. You can sign up for my free eBook! It is PDF formatted, so you can access the book on your smartphone or tablet whenever you want.

It comes with a 7-day action plan with daily tasks to ensure that you stay on the right track. If you actually take action, you will eventually start making money. Keep in mind, this is a long-term venture, not instant gratification.

  1. YES! This is excellent advice Eric, thank you for being so straightforward about this.

    I'm also involved in teaching others successful strategies for building an online business, and it's painful how many people have the mentality that if they put any financial investment at all into starting a business, that they shouldn't have to put consistent effort and motivation into it.

    No successful business functions immediately, or pays off easily. But I can attest that it's worth it. Especially opportunities like Wealthy Affiliate as you've recommended, and Shopify.

    Thanks for sharing this!

  2. Hi Jordan,

    You are absolutely right! It's almost like buying a franchise and expecting to be successful without any additional work. I always like to compare making money online with losing weight. You can't just buy a gym membership and get fit without doing the work.
