As with any Internet Marketing Business, focus is essential. However this is probably one of THE major things that cause people the most headaches.
Are you trying to do everything all at once? Let’s be honest, it’s very easy to get distracted and lose focus. Probably all of my Internet Marketing colleagues have at sometime lost their focus. What we all need to do is concentrate on one thing at a time and do that well.
Internet Marketing Business – Clear The Clutter
The trouble with any Internet Marketing business is that we simply have too much information. On the one hand, this is a good thing, as we have more than enough free information out there to help us be successful online.
On the downside though, too much of anything can be bad for you. This applies to information as much as it does anything else.
If we could only focus on just one thing at a time and do related things to make that one thing work well, then we can really start to make progress. Internet Marketing is a huge subject and is made up of many, many components. Fortunately to be successful, we don’t have to learn and do all of them at the same time.
In itself, Internet Marketing is not a niche, but a combination of many ways to attract traffic and sell products and services in your niche. We tend to allow it to confuse us into thinking that as Internet Marketers we need to learn the whole thing, and NOW..This is simply not true as many of the shiny objects out there are not required, at least not now anyway and perhaps they never will be. We spend out time wasting money but even more importantly, we spend out time wasting time.
Concentrate on one thing, learn to do it well before moving on to the next thing. As with most things in life, you need a plan. Make it your plan to find something you like to do, learn it well, then build the core of your business around that one thing.
Internet Marketing Business – How To Grow Your Business Fast
Position yourself as an expert. This is impossible, if you are a “jack of all trades” and master of none. Learn one aspect of your niche, learn how to get eyeballs (traffic) to your offer, see your business grow,then build a product around what you have now discovered. Here is what I personally do.
I learn all aspects of a topic within my niche. I then write about it, I position myself as an expert, then I create a product about it then I personally coach people about it. It doesn’t always appear in this order, sometimes I’ll learn it then coach it and then make a product about it. But I think you get where I’m coming from.
The Internet Marketing Business is one of constant wonder, but also one of constant frustration if you keep doing everything at once. Now is the time to develop laser like focus and focus on one thing.
All the best
Internet Marketing is not ANYTHING. It is but two words, the meaning of those words are what your brain sees and decides. For some it is a SCAM, for others it is the best thing since sliced bread. It means to us, exactly what we mean to it. If we are amongst those who think that everything and everyone on the Internet is dodgy then those words are bad, to those of us who embrace it, those words are good.
I truly believe that despite what people are telling you about the financial climate, today is the best time ever to be an Internet Marketer, I’m certain that many of my colleagues who make their sole income from selling online would agree with me.
Do you need to be a Dodgy Scammer to make money online?. Of course not, people who continually make money online without going to jail are honest hard working everyday folk like me and you, they sell quality products that educate people into changing their lives.
Therein lies one of the great “secrets” of making money online, which really isn’t a secret at all “Change enough people’s lives for the good, and you will always change your own life for the good”.
Internet Marketing – What’s In It For You?
Internet Marketing tempts us with a taste of the other side. NO, I’m not talking about the other side in a spiritual sense, I’m talking about the other side of a mundane and repetitive life that many of us adapt to as being “normal”
Internet Marketing gives us hope, a friendly diversion if you like from a life of going to work for the man, punching a clock, selling our time for a few dollars in something that we probably hate. Yes, some people love their jobs, but most don’t. The Internet Marketing laptop lifestyle offers a way out..
In the great scheme of things, with a plan and some action we can produce an unlimited income, which in turn can produce a wonderful lifestyle, I’ve always believed this, In fact, I don’t think I have ever seen a better time in my life to be in business. We have an unlimited shop window called the Internet. Never before has so much opportunity been packed into just 17″ (more or less) of space on a laptop.
It’s true, most people are telling you the complete opposite. Most “other” people see Entrepreneurs as a “Greedy bunch of lunatic risk takers”, forgetting of course that most of their jobs were created by such “lunatics”.
Internet Marketing – The Merchants Of Doom Are Never Far Away
Dr Doom always enjoys telling you how the economy is failing, how these are uncertain times, how we should all be grateful for what we get and all that other nonsense touted around by people who spend most of their time spreading doom and gloom instead of making their own lives better.
Don’t forget, with any term of employment, it’s always more crowded at the bottom of the ladder than it is at the top. Yes, this is to a certain degree because people at the top have more skills but it is also because a large majority of people who fight for a position at the bottom of the ladder see that as their “limit”. Now, I’m not judging anyone here, I know there are a million and one reasons why people are earning a few measly dollars an hour, but it doesn’t have to be like that.
You don’t have to be the sharpest card in the deck to make it in Internet Marketing. What you do need to do though is actually do something about it and get of your butt. The TV is good for relaxing after a hard day at the office but it wont earn you any money and it wont really educate you into improving your lifestyle. No one ever looked to Homer Simpson for advice on how to change your life.
There are so many resources out there on the Internet to help you become the you, you really want to be. Most resources are free, but I would strongly advise anyone to seek out a respected coach to help you get going and to point you in the right direction from the start. I never did this, I was too busy listening to everyone and his cat telling me how “simple” it all was that I wasted the first 6 months of my IM journey.
What’s really needed to succeed in Internet Marketing, is not more and more information. You can have too much information, there will always be new information coming along tomorrow. What is needed is a plan on what to do with all this information, to turn it into an income for you. You need a strategy for YOU. This is where a coach or mentor comes in. Invest in yourself.
Have a great day
