Before jumping on the 'Internet Highway To Riches', it may serve you well to take a reality check and peek behind the scenes.
The following opening paragraph is a typical example of the daily stream of advertising filled with promises and innuendo regarding the riches, freedom, and luxury lifestyle offered by starting an online business promoting affiliate marketing. While certainly attractive and very appealing, there are certain 'realities' you must consider before making such a move.
"In the coming weeks, you will be given all of the tools necessary to 'fire your boss' and realize an income that has previously implemented only in your wildest dreams. be shown EXACTLY how to generate an endless stream of commission checks stuffing your mail box. This is a LIMITED offer for only the first 25 applicants … grab your spot now and begin your 'new life' NOW! "
First, if your reaction to "in the coming weeks" is, "c'mon, cut to the chase and show me the money", … they probably can not help you, because … The Magic Pill Does Not Exist!
Your alert potential on the internet is limited only by your willingness to consistently take positive action. If you charge off like Indiana Jones in search of the Magic Pill to Riches, well, I hope you like fantasies that do not have a happy ending. Learn, strictly follow your plan, be consistent, do not get distracted, and you may well become one of the $ ucce $$ stories!
Let's establish obtainable goals
* You want to attain financial $ ecurity.
* You want total control of your business.
* You do not want your business to envelop your life.
* You want to be proud of what you have accomplished.
* You want to help other people $ ucceed.
You are reading this because you probably fall into 1 of 3 categories:
* You are exploring entering the field of on line marketing and wish to achieve the above stated goals.
* You have entered the field of internet marketing, but are getting frustrated in trying to achieve these goals.
* You have established a successful business model with another product, have it on virtual autopilot, and are looking to reinvest your time into another potential stream of income.
If you are # 1 or # 2, you need what # 3 has … an established, successful, business model. To do that, you must follow a focused, organized, step by step plan. In spite of all the extravagant promises you will see as you explore possibilities, the fact remains that your $ ucce $$ will be determined by your consistent commitment to reaching your goals, one step at a time.
Your Timing Could Not Be Better
World wide, online $ ale $ are currently estimated at 600 billion dollars per year, and dramatically dramatically. Your $ 100k per year is waiting for you, but you'll never get it maintaining a shotgun approach and waiting for the best.
Positive Action $ = $ ignitive Reward $
But what about those bank statements that you see showing $ 400 per day in sales? Well, most of them are probably true. And, those $ ale $ may well have been generated by that particular product.
However, what you are not told about is the rock solid business plan / marketing strategy that this person has developed over months, or even years, depending upon the amount of time and commitment that was available.
As an example, if you were planning on preparing a wonderful 5 course dinner for some very special guests, would you not agree that intimate knowledge of each menu item would be necessary to accomplish your goal?
In order to become a $ ucce $$ ful internet marketer, the same is true. Each component of your business plan must be completely developed and set in motion before your profits will explode.
Am we talking about those 2 four letter words …. Hard Work ???
Yep, and we also need to throw in time, consistency, organization, goal orientation, some money, and determination.
However, that being said, there are some words that can make all of the above worth: fun, challenging, personally rewarding, own boss, freedom, network / friend building, and most of all, financial security NOW and for the future.
Unlike our example above, where making money by applying culinary skills can involve considering time and expense for training, as an internet marketer, each step that you add to your business model will create income for you exponentially. The more that you consistently put in, the greater your long term rewards.
As a tool, you will find ebook offers available virtually every day. Many are a source for good information and a potential profit generator. Then again, some are not. Always remember the mantra … "Take the Best and leave the Rest".
You're going to have more new best friends than you know what to do with. You must become very selfish with your valuable time. If you have committed 3 hours to work on your business, do not waste 1 hour opening emails and chasing websites that sound interesting. Save them for future viewing and accomplish your daily projects.
While you're business is growing, you probably will purchase something that does not work out. Be thorough, ask yourself if this product will help you now, or it does just seem too good to pass up. We have ALL frittered away money. But always remember, you can recover lost money, but you can never recover lost time!
One of the most enjoyable aspects of developing an on line business is the amount of creativity that you can use. There are no set methods for developing opt-in lists, advertising, search engine optimization, etc. Simply find a program that works for you and you feel comfortable with, and ….. go for it. There is absolutely no need to reinvent the wheel … After all, it is YOUR STORY … if you feel that you have what it takes … BEGIN WRITING IT, and, Good Luck.
