Making a million dollars online for most people is not even in
their realm of thinking, its like a never ever land, most are
just hoping to make a few thousand extra month. Reality is, most
Internet marketers make very little money, in fact 90% make less
then $500 a month. The ones who make more then that, and are
actually making a livable wage, several thousand a month or
more, are not afraid to spend money learning traffic strategies
and buying traffic. Because lets face it, the more quality
traffic you have coming in, the more money you will make online.
Most wanna be marketers are afraid to spend money on learning
and buying traffic, one of the main reasons people fail online,
they do not understand delayed gratification..Offline business
owners, and people who went to college for a few years, have a
greater chance of success online, because they have already
developed the right mindset before attempting internet
marketing, by paying for an education or a business upfront, and
then getting the rewards later.
This is delayed gratification, working towards, learning and
investing in your now for future rewards (income). All
successful people and business owners understand this concept.
A Doctor only becomes a Doctor and makes money after years of
schooling, and residency..
A Rock band only makes money, after many hours of first learning
their skill, then practice, playing together, and sharing their
music with others and auditioning for gigs…
A business owner only makes money after many hours of marketing
research, writing a business plan, and investing money getting
the business set up and on advertising…
The point is, any professional, or someone who has success in
what they do, spend hours learning, and investing time and money
into their profession, long before they make much money..And
every profession has tools of the trade that you have to invest
in to make money with.
Could you imagine a carpenter building a house with out any
tools? Or how would you like to hire a self proclaimed
carpenter, who has no prior experience building homes?
A lesson to be learned…And now for the rest of the story..
I still remember several years back, when I had made my first
ever $1,000 dollars in one month, I almost didn’t even believe
it, even my banker when I went to cash the check, told me this
sounds to good to be true..For me it was a wonderful moment
after two years of being frustrated trying to make money online,
and failing time and time again..
After the nervousness settled down, and I realized wow this is
real, and my work finally paid off, I was excited to continue on
and try and make even more money..And I thought, hey if I just
increase my traffic Ill make more money. This was only partially
true, I learned two VERY IMPORTANT things along the way to
making my first $10,000 in one month..
Number one) Increasing the quality, and quantity of my
traffic..like how they teach at the Traffic Mastery Academy.
Now lots of good quality Traffic is only part of the formula,
the other part which is just as important, is Number two) how
you monetize it.
Many people get this part wrong as well, they are always looking
for the cheapest thing online to promote whether its a product
or a mlm type program, they think cheap is the way to get more
people to buy, and increase their income. This also took me
sometime to learn over the years as my income went up and down,
I didn’t realize you need a mix of price points, in your
marketing as well as having residuals and high end as well. So
for some of you reading this, this point will really hit home
with you, because if you have been struggling trying to make
more then a couple thousand a month online or your income keeps
fluctuating drastically, you know what I am talking about.
Scale Vs. Magnitude
There are two main ways to increase online income. You can
increase quality traffic (scale), and you can make more money on
the traffic you already have (magnitude). Most marketers
concentrate all their efforts on scale. They figure the key to
making more money is by getting more traffic. If you’re making
$1,000 a month with 100,000 views, then you should make $2,000 a
month with 200,000 views. That’s the logic of it, anyway.
The reality is most marketers like I told you in the beginning
of this post will never achieve the scale required to make a
living online. Their to afraid to properly invest in their
traffic and business, and do not have the right mix of sales and
are promoting only small ticket items that makes them next to
nothing. What they should be doing is scaling (increasing their
traffic) and make more money on the traffic they already have
(magnitude) by going after big-ticket sales, by investing in the
These are the two secrets to making a living online, and joining
the 5% who become high 5, 6 and 7 figure income earners…You
will never do it one with out the other.
How am I currently scaling my traffic, and increasing my
P.S. If you are a newbie marketer reading this, and have no
experience what so ever and do not know what email marketing
even is, then you really need to start here.
