Putting It All Together With IM
Tommorrow is Amanda's third birthday party. Our granddaught only lives about 65 miles away but we only see her every few months. We are so tied to this warehouse we do not make time for visiting or anything else.
Part of the reason Sharon and I want to succed in internet marketing is to have time. Time to camp. Time to visit friends. Time to spend with family. We are slowly putting it all together with IM. It is a slow process for us.
It takes time and effort to succeed in anything and Internet Marketing is no exception to that rule. So many people are lured by the thought of instant riches and then when that does not happen they decide to give up. Remember what I said about being stuck in traffic last time. You do not go home each time you hit a red light or are stuck in traffic. You just wait it our and go on your way.
One of the most important things is to have a specific focus and to continue with this until it works or at least until you have given it a fair shot.Do not give up on a dream just because there is some road block our detour.
When you are in the business of Internet Marketing, you will find that you are constantly bombarded with new products and schemes that are supposedly going to make you incredibly rich. These often to have good information and ideas but because people do not stick with them until they become successful they often just give up a couple of weeks later and blame the product. The key is to buy one product from a well-established Guru and then follow their advice until it has turned into a profitable stream of income before moving on.
It is a good idea to draw yourself up a plan of exactly how you are going to attack the internet. You probably will want to get into something that interests you but you should first make sure there is a market there by doing some research. There is also no point in promoting products for a niche if they are only paying out 15% commission; 50% and more in commissions are very common in IM. Set out a plan of the projects you are going to work on and then devote a good chunk of your time to it.
Lastly, remember that it is not going to be easy but that everything in life that is truly worth doing requires effort. Look upon it as a challenge. Always try to provide extra value to people's lives. As Zig Ziggler says, "You can get anything you want in life if you can just help enough other people get what they want." Have this as your philosophy. Good luck and every success to you in the world of Internet Marketing!
OH, I almost forgot. Another motivation for Sharon and I is to get out of Oxnard. We woke up the other morning with POP POP POP for about 10 times. Small arms fire? We live in the city and there is enough gunfire to think it is hunting season. Yesterday Sharon heard a series of shots. We turned on the Police Scanner and heard, "10 to 15 shots fired". Later it was reported to be fireworks.
We have had 5 murders withing 3-5 blocks of our business. There was a murder a couple blocks from our house a shortly after we moved in. Oxnard is a gang banger town. There is not a shooting on every corner and it is not constant gunfire, but it is the worse city we have ever lived in. We do not fear for our lives, but problems sure do exist here.
