Are You Wasting Your Time in Online Business?

Are You Wasting Your Time in Online Business?

Today I want to share one of the best lessons I’ve ever received in the Internet marketing world.

I don’t even remember where I saw this but it had an immediate and lasting impact on my online profits.

This may sound simplistic, but here is the advice:

“Do something profitable first.”

Every day when you first fire up your computer, make sure the first task you perform is something that can generate a profit.

On today’s Internet, it is far too easy to do unprofitable tasks one after another and waste hours upon hours. Fall into these bad habits and in a few months, you’ll be wondering why there’s no money coming in.

However, when you do something profitable FIRST every day and you will steadily grow your income.

I’ll show you some examples from my own past experiences, right after today’s top sponsor ad…

 

Here’s how the “old me” operated…

Most days when I fired up the PC I started by checking my email. That was a mistake. Yes, answering email is important but it should be done AFTER a profitable task is completed.

Here’s a list of unprofitable or marginally profitable tasks that you should NOT do right away:

  • Check email
  • Go on Facebook
  • Go on Twitter, Pinterest or any other social media site
  • Watch videos on youtube
  • Read a sales letter or watch a sales video
  • Buy a product
  • Shop at Amazon or any other site
  • Feel overwhelmed and watch TV instead of working

While all of those things are perfectly acceptable on a limited basis, they are not making you much, if any money.

So now you may be wondering what things you should do BEFORE you do any of those things. Well, here is a list of things I replaced those with and saw an immediate impact in my earnings…

  • Create a new blog post
  • Contact 2-3 potential JV partners
  • Research and review a potential affiliate product
  • Write a solo email series for a good affiliate product
  • Send a solo email to your list or a solo vendor
  • Add a high-converting affiliate product to an autoresponder series
  • Brainstorm a new product of your own
  • Work on a sales letter for a new product
  • Learn a new marketing skill by reading or watching a training product, then implement it immediately
  • Perform a traffic generating task such as post at a forum, build a link, place an ad or do a guest post
  • Outsource some profitable tasks at fiverr.com

Do you see the difference in this list compared to the list of unprofitable tasks?

The unprofitable tasks take up just as much time, and sometimes more. In fact, it is easy to waste an entire day doing the non-productive stuff. But at the end of the day, you may as well have been sleeping or watching TV.

However, if you do at least ONE of the items from the profitable list BEFORE you do anything else every day, you will steadily grow your profits.

Do this every day for a few weeks and it will become a habit.

Then look back a month or two later and you may be pleasantly surprised to see how much this new habit helped you grow your income. I know I was!

It’s funny how one small change in the way you think or the actions you take can make all the difference in the world.

 

3 Secrets To Affiliate Income Growth

3 Secrets To Affiliate Income Growth

All the gurus say affiliate marketing is so easy.

If that’s true, why are there literally millions of affiliate marketers earning $0 month after month?

The thing is, affiliate marketing is NOT as easy as most gurus make it out to be.

You can’t just pick a product or service at JVZoo, Clickbank, Amazon, ShareASale or Commission Junction and start advertising your affiliate link. I don’t care where you advertise — Google Adwords, Facebook, blogs or ad networks.

Do that and you will almost always burn through more cash than you earn in commissions every month. Unless you have very deep pockets you need to be a lot smarter about your affiliate marketing.

Over the years I’ve tried just about every affiliate marketing strategy known to mankind. I now make a full-time income — mostly from affiliate marketing. I mix in a few other online income strategies as well, such as product creation and advertising income, but my favorite way to earn online is from affiliate marketing.

Today I’ll share some of my secrets with you.

 

Secret #1: Stick to ONE niche

I see far too many affiliate marketers build a site around “ebooks” and then try to sell ebooks via Amazon or wherever, on all topics.

That’s a big mistake in my opinion. You need to stick to ONE niche that you know and like.

If your thing is woodworking then build a site around woodworking. Share your best projects. Share your worst screw-ups. Show them you’re human just like them. You can write all about it, make videos about it – however you are most comfortable sharing information.

Just don’t stray off the topic of woodworking and try to sell affiliate products in the Internet marketing niche. Your audience will lose interest and see right through your sales pitch. But if you’re showing them how to build a chair then you tell them you downloaded the plans from x site, well, that’s different.

That’s how you make lots of sales over and over.

Secret #2: Know what you are promoting – I mean REALLY know it.

The easiest products to sell are the ones you use yourself. When I go back through all my affiliate promotions I can easily see that the top performers were the ones I really liked and used myself. Not always, but usually.

That’s why it is so important to promote stuff you would buy or have bought yourself. That way you can literally show potential buyers all the good and the bad of the product. That makes your promotions REAL and GENUINE.

Secret #3: Promote as you would to your mom or your best friend.

As I mentioned, when you are doing affiliate marketing you are going to need to create some content around the products you promote. I’m talking about emails, blog posts, videos and well… ways to help potential buyers make a decision.

This is where many affiliate marketers go wrong. They go into sales pitches like a badly used car salesman.

Instead of doing that, you need to keep it real. Talk to them like you respect them, want to help them and can relate to them.

Talk about real-world things. Inject a little humor. Keep it light and don’t pressure them. They’ll appreciate it and want more.

And yes, they might even but from your link. If not this time, maybe next time.

I then went on to tell them about a great program I had been testing and shared the affiliate link.

This type of affiliate marketing is not only more fun, but it is also more effective. More people will pay attention to you when you are not in their face screaming louder than the next guy about why they should buy.

Try this technique and I guarantee you’ll start getting better results with your affiliate marketing.

OK, let me wrap this up…

As you can see from today’s issue, if you want to earn serious commissions with affiliate marketing, you need to put in some time and effort.

You need to be creative. And you need to take as many lessons from experience marketers as you can.

Follow the stuff they do that works. Copy them when you can.

In fact, copy JIM if you want to.

He just uploaded all His “soft-sell” conversational affiliate promotions from the last year and a half to this web page.

email swipes

You can get all of them (hundreds!) along with a list of all the top programs He used them on. You can use them on the programs he promoted, or use them on your own stuff.

You can use them as email solos, follow-ups, blog posts and in your articles. Just use them! They generated a lot of great feedback and a ton of sales, and they can do that for you too.

If you want to start generating full-time affiliate commissions in your spare time, this is probably the easiest way to do it without doing all the work yourself.

 

The 2 Steps To Successful Affiliate Marketing

The 2 Steps To Successful Affiliate Marketing

Today I’ll show you a simple two-step process you can use to cash in with affiliate marketing.

Who knows, maybe you can eventually quit your day job like I did.

 

If you’re a retiree, stay at home mom, unemployed or just want to make money online part time, you really need to try affiliate marketing.

With affiliate marketing, there is no product creation, no support, no direct selling, and no hassles.

Here’s how to get started…

Step 1: Find Your Niche

When most start out in affiliate marketing, they put the cart before the horse and start looking for products to promote. That’s a mistake.

Rather than focusing on the product, step back and focus on a niche audience to promote to instead.

The secret is to find a niche that you want to work in and a niche that will be profitable.

Why does it make sense to focus on an audience for your niche, instead of a product?

Here are a couple of reasons why:

a. Products will always come and go, but a niche audience is virtually permanent. That’s why a popular product only lasts so long, and then people start to anticipate the next big thing. It’s the audience you should be focusing on, not the product.

b. When you take the time to really understand the deep-seated needs of a certain audience, you’ll make the transition from trying to find ideas for products to immediately knowing what kinds of products you should promote to your audience. That’s a game changer.

Once you understand these basic principles of affiliate marketing, there’s no stopping you. Know your audience and give them what they need. Period.

Niche Brainstorming Tips:

– Pick an audience that you are drawn to; people who you can relate to

– Consider a niche you would categorize yourself in. For example solo entrepreneur, or senior male or female golfer

– Pick an audience by first choosing a niche topic you’re interested in or somewhat passionate about. This could be anything from “cure golf putting yips” to “how to get more dates”

– Recognize the problems of the people in this niche — research their pain, desires, problems, and aspirations. There are endless places you can discover this information online including blogs, niche forums and even at Amazon.com

– Focus on profitable problems. Not every problem is created equally. Your audience will be more than willing to pay to have some of their problems solved, while others not so much. It’s your job to understand the difference. You can use these filters to help you figure it out:

How many monthly searches are there for the problem?
How many searches suggest a desire to solve the problem?
How much quality information is on the Internet relative to the problem? (The more the better!)

– Learn to speak the language of your audience on their terms to effectively communicate with them.

I realize this might sound like a lot of work, but once you choose your niche audience, understand their needs and problems, learn about them intensely, and then offer them a product that will solve that problem, you can be on the road to quitting your day job.

Incidentally, I realize this is a lot of work. If you prefer a shortcut to those steps above and want to jump into an affiliate marketing niche with all the research and promo tools in hand, here’s a shortcut for that.

Right after this quick sponsor message, I’ll show you how to find the best products to sell in virtually any niche.

 

Step 2: Find Your Products and Start (Pre)Selling

OK, now that you know how to pick a profitable topic for your affiliate marketing efforts, you need to find products to promote and a way to promote them.

The two main places where I find products to promote as an affiliate are…

Clickbank.com

JVZoo.com

Signing up at either of these sites to promote products is free.

Both sites offer a search function where you can enter a niche-specific term and find related products.

Clickbank offers a “Marketplace” where you can research products and find top sellers in your niche.

JVZoo offers a search tool at their “Affiliate Dashboard” where you can select your niche category.

The key with both sites is to find stuff that is selling well.

Clickbank shows you a gravity score for each product that indicates the affiliate activity.

JVZoo goes into more detail showing you the number of sales each product has made, along with EPC and more.

Don’t just stop at one product. In order to create a substantial amount of money and really bank some cash, you’ll need to promote a steady stream of products.

Once you have some initial products picked out, the final step is to build an audience…

You can start building an audience via Facebook or with a blog like the one you’re reading right now. I also recommend you add in a dash of email marketing by starting an email list.

I know what you’re thinking, this whole thing is starting to sound like a lot of work!

Well, anything great takes work. It doesn’t happen overnight, but if you stay active and use all the shortcuts at your disposal, the clicks and sales can really start to add up.

Remember, there’s much more to affiliate marketing than simply writing content, inserting a link, and waiting for the profits to roll in. As I mentioned earlier, you must understand who you are marketing to based on their needs and desires. Then offer solutions to their problem.

“Pre-selling” products is the best strategy online. You write about the problems and the solutions. You infuse your audience with enthusiasm and anticipation before they even land on the sales page. This significantly increases your chances of making a sale.

But the most important aspect about affiliate marketing is to successfully build a solid relationship with your audience based on trust and ethics. Once they know they can trust you, your sales will increase exponentially as long as you are solving real problems for them.

That’s why you need to be choosy about which products you pick so you’ll be viewed as a trusted authority in the eyes of your buyers. Test products and use them before recommending them.

Recommended training & software….

Once you learn how to pick money making niche and build an audience in that niche, your money-making opportunities online are endless.

How To Build an Opt-In List and Profit from it

How To Build an Opt-In List and Profit from it

Email marketing is the missing piece of the Internet marketing puzzle for countless marketers.

No matter what your plan is for monetizing your blog or website, email marketing needs to be a top priority.

Sure, it will take a little time to set up, but it is crucial to your long term success and survival online.

A responsive email list will create a solid foundation that your business can stand on for as long as email itself survives. You could take away all your traffic, but if you have a responsive email list, your business could still survive.

Think about that for a minute and hopefully, you’ll see the importance of growing your own email list.

So let’s talk about setting up that important component in your online business today.

While most of the Internet marketing strategies I recommend are completely free or close to it, email marketing is the one thing you need to spend a little money on. (Besides a domain name and web hosting.)

In order to do email marketing effectively, you’ll need a web-based list management tool. Also called an autoresponder service, this tool will help you grow, manage, broadcast and get emails through to your list.

In my opinion, Aweber is the best at all of those tasks. That is the service I use and recommend.

I have used many in the past, and while Getresponse is also very good, as are a few others, Aweber is still my personal favorite. What you need to look for in an autoresponder is high delivery rates and unlimited broadcasting without extra charges, and that is what Aweber delivers.

Lots of marketers say Aweber is too expensive, but it only costs $19 a month for up to 500 subscribers, $29 a month for up to 2500 subscribers, $49 a month for up to 5000 subscribers, $69 for up to 10,000 subscribers and $149 a month for up to 25,000 subscribers. That’s a bargain compared to how much income your list can bring you every month.

As you can see, the cost of an autoresponder service goes up as you get more and more subscribers, but keep in mind that by the time you surpass 500 you’ll likely be making plenty of money to afford it anyway.

Hopefully, you understand the importance of having a list and why Aweber is the service to go with. Now let’s talk about how to set it up.

I won’t go into details of using Aweber itself, there are plenty of Aweber training videos at their site to teach you autoresponder setup and how to use their service. What I want to talk about our strategies for implementing it at your WordPress site.

First of all, most people miss the boat with Aweber and other related services. They create an opt-in form, put it in one place on their site and then plan to broadcast to subscribers after their list grows. This is NOT how a smart web marketer uses email marketing.

Here are the steps the top marketers take…

Step 1: Get an Aweber account.

You can get a free trial here:  Aweber Free Trial

Then watch the Aweber training videos and set up your first list.

Step 2: Write a series of email messages for your follow up a campaign.

This is a step that way too many people skip altogether, but I consider it the most important step of all!

Remember, email marketing means growing relationships one at a time. You do that with email follow-ups that build rapport with subscribers by offering them helpful tips, asking them to email you back if they have questions and only very occasionally sending them to an affiliate link or other monetized link that earns you money.

Skip this step at your own peril.

Once you have your series written, plug the messages into your followup campaign so your subscribers get a message every 3-4 days for a month or so. Again, don’t make them all marketing messages with affiliate links. Make sure at least half of the messages simply contain helpful info and your offer to help them as needed.

Step 3: Get Subscribers.

You do this by strategically placing your opt-in form at your web property in multiple locations.

Once your list is set up and your follow up campaign is in place, it’s time to start getting subscribers. Too many people miss the boat here too. In fact, I’ve been quite guilty of this myself.

The fact is, one small signup form on your site will get you only a tiny number of subscribers compared to when you place your signup form at multiple locations. These locations should include…

a. The top of your sidebar at all your pages

b. Immediately after each post

c. On a dedicated squeeze page detailing the benefits of signing up

d. As a checkbox when they comment

e. On entry or exit pop-up

f. In an above the fold feature box if your theme offers that option

Oh, and as far as what information to ask for in your signup forms, here’s the inside scoop…

You should ask for first name and email address only. If you want to simplify things further you can ask for email address only, which does increase signups slightly, however you lose the ability to personalize your follow-up emails, which I feel is important.

Eat this and lose

 

3 Ways To Grow Your Opt-in List Faster

OK, now that you know how to set things up, let’s talk about how to grow that list faster.

1. Offer An Ebook or Software

You can get lots of opt-ins by offering an irresistible ebook for software such as a WordPress plugin for free. You don’t even have to create the giveaway yourself. Just grab an ebook or plugin with plr rights!

2. Offer PDF Versions of Your Posts

If your blog is full of great content, you can display a “download this post as PDF” button on all your best posts using this clever plugin.It takes just a few minutes to set up and it will grow your list on auto-pilot.

3. Get a PAID product up and tied to your autoresponder

Once you’ve been blogging for a few months you really should create your own info-product or service. In fact, you can simply use the blog posts you’ve been writing as content in your info-product.

Then get it into JVZoo when it is done and start recruiting affiliates. If you pay them 75% on the front end you’ll get some people to promote it for you.

When you add a product to JVZoomake sure you create a new aweber “customer” list and connect that list to the product so customers are automatically subscribed. (That’s an option in the JVZoo product setup area.) Now you’ll be growing a CUSTOMER list which is the best opt-in list you can have! 😉

Your customer list should be single opt-in, and not require confirmation from the subscriber. That’s because the person has just bought something from you. All you have to do is contact aweber and request single opt-in for your customer list and they will be happy to set that up for you.

Making Money From Your List

Your follow-ups will grow a relationship with your opt-in subscribers. You can strengthen that relationship by sending out an email newsletter every week or two as well. When people get lots of free, useful content they will open your emails more often.

You can even sell some products and services via your follow ups and your newsletters. But your real bread and butter will be your list broadcasts.

Once your list size surpasses 50 or so subscribers, I suggest you start sending broadcast emails recommending top products and services in your niche. Just be sure you personally try the products and services before you recommend them. A few bad recommendations can hurt your credibility, so you need to be very selective about what you recommend.

And don’t just send one email then move on. You should plan a multi-email promotion for every week or two. Send an early bird deal, an FAQ email, a “how to use the product” email and a deal ending email. That’s 4X the chance of making sales.

Get personal in your emails and make them different than what the product vendor offers its affiliates.

If you are in the Internet marketing how-to niche, here are Jim’s top promotional emails . You can use them as your own and simply insert your own affiliate link. 😉

 

 

Global Profit system review

My name is Lusekelo Hudson and recently I decided to join the global profit system and if I am being honest, I was impressed by it that is why I decided to write this global profit system review.

What is the Global Profit System?

Global profit system is a free viral marketing system available worldwide that provides three income streams that pay you monthly residual income.

What does Ben Martin know? Good question, the man is a genius, I own his three latest courses, he released last year or so, Mailing for money, Commission Code and Stealth Commissions. I made most of my money last year following Ben Martin teachings.

How does The Global Profit system work

In simple words, the global profit system allows you to promote three tools that every online entrepreneur need only by promoting one link.

In order to make money online, you need a domain name, a hosting, an autoresponder, and a page builder and that is exactly you will be promoting in the global profit system.

When you refer a person to the system, they will be given a chance to join those programs by using your affiliate link and this will create a recurring commission for you.

The benefits…

As I said above, Ben Martin is making a fortune simply by emailing his list, and a cool thing when you sign up for this system is that you get access to 30 of his well-converting email swipes, making it a lot easier for you to make money with your list.

The autoresponder used with this system is Aweber, and Aweber is one of the income streams. The other two income streams are Clickfunnels and Gdi.

So to get a hold of Ben Martins email swipes you just claim the 30 days free trial with Aweber, then you get a sharing code within the Global profit System and then you can easily install Bens 30 emails within 2 minutes. When it comes to accessing your 14-day free trial at Clickfunnels, you will access 5 of Ben’s high converting capture pages, so that you will be able to generate a lot of leads and start earning with the Gps system.

The third Company is ClickFunnel, this is the page builder in the market today, the co-founder and CEO Russell Brunson is one of the best online entrepreneurs.

As you read, the global profit system is a legit program promoting only legit affiliate products.

How do you earn commissions with the Global Profit System

Working in Coffee Shops – A Guide

Working from home sounds great in theory but if you’ve ever tried to actually literally work out of a room in your home, you’ll likely have found that it’s all too easy to get distracted and that it quickly leads to symptoms of cabin fever as you get restless and struggle to switch off when you come home in the evenings.

You don’t have to go traveling and become a ‘digital nomad‘ though – there is a happy medium. Instead, why not explore your local area and work in coffee shops where you can enjoy a relaxed vibe and meet people, while at the same time having all the facilities you need to be productive?

If you plan on giving it a shot, read on for some tips on how to make the most of it…

Working in Coffee Shops – A Guide

The Ideal Coffee Shop

When looking for a place to work, you need to look for a few different factors. The most important things that your coffee shop will need are:

  • Comfortable seating
  • A power socket
  • WiFi
  • A relatively quiet atmosphere

In terms of a ‘quiet atmosphere’, you either want to work somewhere that is very quiet or somewhere that is very noisy. If there are a lot of people chatting, you’ll find it all blends into one general noise. If you work somewhere that’s only ‘quite’ quiet though, you risk sitting near people having a discussion that you can overhear – which is the most distracting of all.

Tips for Getting More From the Location

To get the most from the coffee shop, you need to ensure that you bring headphones. This way, if a couple does start having a break up right next to you, you can pop those on and stop listening to what’s going on around you.

Another tip is to make sure you have a good computer set-up. A good choice is to get a tablet and a keyboard – this way you can angle the screen however you like and not be restricted with how you type. The outcome will be that you can more effectively avoid glare on your screen.

If you are going to be visiting coffee shops regularly, then it’s definitely worth getting the respective loyalty cards to save money. Make sure that you choose a beverage that won’t lead to you putting on a lot of weight too! A white Americano is a good choice because it has few calories.

Some Top Tips for Living the Digital Nomad Lifestyle

The digital nomad lifestyle is all about using your self-employment in order to be free and to travel the world. You’ll spend more time outside, more time seeing amazing places and far less time cooped up in an office losing the will to live.

Some Top Tips for Living the Digital Nomad Lifestyle

But it would be a lie to say that the digital nomad lifestyle was easy. Being a digital nomad also means not having a home to call your own. It means not being able to properly wash your clothes. It means struggling to find tea or coffee with milk… and all those things are somewhat stressful.

Read on then and we will look at some tips that can help you to live the digital nomad lifestyle while dodging some of the challenges.

Get a Microfiber Towel

A microfiber towel is a towel made from a special microfiber. These towels are very light and they dry very easily in seconds. All this means that you can throw them in your backpack and they won’t take up the whole thing, weigh a ton or make your other clothes wet.

The Lightest Laptop

Looking for the lightest possible laptop solution? One good idea is to get an 8” or 7” windows tablet and then to get an external foldable keyboard. These weigh barely anything, can almost fit into a pocket and let you work from anywhere!

Spare Batteries

Carrying spare batteries is a very good idea for your phone and for your laptop. You can even go one step further and look at something like the Crank iPhone case that lets you charge your phone by hand using electromagnetic induction.

World Clock

Get a world clock installed on your phone and that way you can keep track of the time in other countries as you’re working.

Budget

When you’re traveling and working it’s important to strike the right balance so that you’re actually seeing the countries you’re visiting but also can still pay for food and a place to sleep. The best way to do this is with a strict budget that works out precisely how much money you actually need. Make one and stick to it!

Backup

And make sure you always have a backup plan! That means some savings in your account, some cash in your shoe and your files saved on the cloud. Think of every contingency because traveling can definitely be unpredictable at times.

Quick Hacks To Improve Your Business

It’s hard to mesh the notion that we should be faster and more productive with the idea that we should track our business, analyze our time, and optimize what works.

If you can’t find the time to add systems to your business, try a little addition by subtraction. Let’s look at the quick hacks to improve your business that you can do to make your business more profitable:

1. Cancel services that aren’t working for you.

If you’ve been paying a monthly or yearly fee for services and software that you’re always “getting ready” to use… get ready to dump those services and reclaim your money.

Ask yourself if the monthly services that you’re using are really living up to their promises. Are they paying for themselves right now, or are you going to need other elements to take full advantage of them?

Look for more cost-effective solutions, and look for services that combine two or three features that you’re already using.

There are many times that you’ll want to “make the switch” but you’re hesitant because you’ve got data there, or the process of changing over would take the time that you don’t have.

But when you finally block off some time and make the move, you’ll be surprised at how good it feels.

Look for companies that give you great benefits to switch. Usually, the services that are “stickiest” know that it’ll take a generous set of benefits to draw new customers.

2. Develop the courage to quit.

Sometimes, you get stuck with a business plan that just does not benefit you.

Look, it’s important not to give up on something easy, but every business has something called “sunk costs”. That’s the point where things aren’t going to get better, and the more you invest, the more you’re going to lose.

Look for elements of your business that are keeping you from accomplishing MORE and doing something BETTER. Look for the items in your business that you can quit. And if you aren’t sure that you can quit those elements, try to step back and find ways to tackle the same tasks more effectively.

3. Learn more efficient ways of doing business.

The time that you spend struggling to finish a task can sometimes be spent asking more efficient and advanced people their methods for doing things.

Look up blogs and books discussing the very specific stumbling block that’s impeding your process and start applying those fixes.

Also, there are plenty of paid services that charge for convenience – so if there’s a skill you can learn to save yourself some money, take the time to learn it.

Don’t treat this improvement as a one-time thing. Sign up for newsletters and resources that will gradually improve your skill. You won’t learn a skill overnight, but a small amount of time can give you compound results.

Remember that cash is an amazing source of leverage. If there’s a task that’s critical to your business and requires a lot of skill, consider leveraging your money and hiring a specialist to do it. Cash is always tight, so if you’re smart, you can get a lot for a little.

It’s called: “Make the Leap to Home Business Success”

Make the Leap to Home Business Success

If you are going to build a successful home business, you need 3 “intangibles.” These are things that must come from WITHIN you.

===> Intangible 1 <===

First, you must have a strong WHY.

Why must you make a home business work? What’s driving you? What is it that you CAN’T have in your life anymore and/or what is it that you absolutely MUST HAVE now?

For me, I couldn’t stand working 12+ hours a day anymore and missing the experience of my children growing up. I also absolutely HAD TO HAVE the freedom of being able to control my life and finances through a little box that I could carry with me anywhere in the world and not be tied to anyone’s time pressures or demands but my own. That was my carrot and my stick. I felt a great pain deep in my gut of missing out on my children’s lives and the incredible freedom that succeeding in this business would provide for me. I found my why. You MUST find yours.

===> Intangible 2 <===

You must BELIEVE that it is possible.

If you don’t believe that it’s POSSIBLE for you to succeed in a home business or make your living on the Internet, you won’t. It’s that simple.

For me, figuring out that it was possible was just a matter of realizing that many other people were ALREADY making great money with a home business online. If they could do it, I could too. It would just be a matter of figuring out what those people were doing and then adapting it to my situation.

There is no shortage of undeniable PROOF that people (millions of them) are making money online in many different ways. Just get online and do some research and you’ll find countless testimonials and stories of REAL PEOPLE making real money on the Internet. Or head to your local bookstore and you’ll find the same documented evidence of this fact. Truth is, it’s getting easier and easier to start and succeed in a home based business. This is primarily because of the Internet and affiliate marketing.

I’ve always said that “affiliate marketing” is the job of the future. In the “old” days, you had to go to a potential employer, apply for the position and hope for the best. Now you can simply go to any company you want, fill out their affiliate application and start work immediately. Affiliates are the new working class. Believe me, making money with affiliate programs or making your living on the Internet is WAY MORE than possible. It is pretty much (or will be soon enough) unavoidable now. Affiliate marketing is the “job” of the future that’s here TODAY.

===> Intangible 3 <===

You must be willing to MAKE THE LEAP.

Hello world!

Ready, FIRE, then aim… This is the operating philosophy you MUST adopt to succeed with an Internet home business.

That’s backward for most people who like to aim before they fire. The fact is the Internet is a moving target… The only thing constant about it is change. You need to stop analyzing the game and simply jump into it. You can’t learn from the outside… You have to be IN THE RING to truly understand it.

The lesson here is that you will never really be READY to start a home based business. You simply have to start one. This is what I call “Making the Leap.”

The good news is that the cost of failure on the Internet is very small. In the “brick and mortar” world you need to evaluate things very carefully before you decide to open up a business. It’s almost always necessary to invest thousands of dollars to get an offline business off the ground. However, on the Internet, you can often start a successful business for less than $100. In fact, you can start your online business for free

You simply need to get IN THE GAME… Each moment that you stay “out there,” you’re wasting valuable time that you could be learning and skills necessary to become a successful affiliate marketer. In fact, if you’re not in the game yet, you’re ALREADY behind the times. Come on… You can do it! Make the leap to becoming a successful home-based business owner today!
