Baby Boomers Making Money Online

online boomersBaby boomers are a tech savvy bunch. According to surveys we have adopted technology in a big way. And why not? Most of what we use today was created in a large part by members of our generation.

  1. The internet is the?top source for gathering information on topics of interest.
  2. Over half of us consume online video.
  3. Social networking sites are used by the majority of us.

  4. Online search engines are the top online information ?gathering ?tool.
  5. We are not only just using computers; but a growing number are equipped with tablets and smartphones as well.

According to surveys boomers are tech savvy

tech savvy boomer coupleWith all this interest in technology it is no wonder why some of us are making money online as well. I say some because like the population at large; between 90 and 95 percent of online business initiatives fail to earn money.

Why is this?

  1. First of all there is a great deal of information out there that needs to be filtered in order to find the right recipe for online success.?Unfortunately?quite a bit of this information is written and promoted by self proclaimed internet gurus who make slick ads promising six figure plus income per annum in a short period of time with little effort. The only ones making money from these offers are the scammers themselves.?
  2. Second, there are a lot of sites and documents available that provide sound information about web site building, content writing, internet marketing, and search engine optimization to name a few things. ?But these are scattered all about the internet making it hard to get the big picture of making money online.
  3. Third, there are number of what look like legit programs out there to help us make money; but once you get hooked you find that they are multi level ?marketing schemes where the only ones making any real money are the people above you in the pyramid who profit by your efforts. Selling herbal remedies and dietary supplements make up a lot of this scenario.
  4. The truly legit online marketing how to sites are hard to find since they are in the vast minority. Sometimes it’s like looking for a pin in a haystack. And you are confused as to what is good and what is not because of all the noise around this topic as mentioned in the previous three points.?
