I was reading over some post today in the OBA forum and decided to add this here as well because investing in your business has to do a lot with commitment. One of the biggest mistakes I see being made by people new and experienced to internet marketing is “program hopping”. This is when someone joins every new program that they see, in hopes it will be easier than the last.
When you hop from one program to the next you are not going to have success in building downlines in your main business.
Until you learn how to build one downline, the only new programs that you should be joining are ones that give you more tools to help build your downline (basically traffic building programs). Now that said your number one priority should always be in building your email marketing list and the new relationships that come with it. I know sometimes that it seems that all your effort is in waste and the small investments that you have made are not doing anything but adding more stress to the ever amounting stress you all ready have. This is where the rubber meets the road so to speak, what I see more and more is people joining programs like this one and working it for a month or two and when they have not made any sales they quit and join a new program because it offers a even more fabulous marketing program (like there is anything better than this) and when that one does not work they join a even more fabulous marketing program………………..and then they burn out and die!
To those of you who are destined to be successful online, you will have the will to stay the course, you will promote when it does not seem to be working and when it still does not seem to be working you will promote even harder because your desire to make it work outways the obstacles you must overcome. The internet can be just like any other business offline, there are good times and there are bad……..but what will determine your degree of success will be your will and your determination to stay the course and make it work no matter what! It will never be easy and it will be as difficult as you make it……….but remember what you put in you will get out of it………….and when you think you have worked it hard, dig down deep and work it even harder for in lies success lies the effort that you put forth!
I am no body special, I am not better than anyone else, I am not even that good with computers. My wife and kids call me the pecker because I still type with only two fingers. My son Jon who is twelve has been building websites since he was ten. I just finally figured out how to build a website recently and I have been marketing online over 7 years.
People are always emailing me and asking what am I doing differently to get such fast results. First off I do not consider my results very fast, I would like them to be even faster. And my only reply is, the one thing I am really good at, is out working most people. When most people talk about surfing 10,000 credits their talking about the last 30 days, when I talk about 10,000 credits I am talking about today. I get good results because I put in money and a whole lot of effort, I surfed yesterday about 20 traffic exchanges an average of 600 credits in each, so about 12,000 credits, I am also upgraded in 20 traffic exchanges. My effort matches my investment commitment. I want to make money now, not tomorrow. I really do feel for the people who struggle to make money online, but most people do not really understand what it takes to make money fast (or even slow) on the internet. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and some investment to get things really moving. My first two years online I lost a few thousand dollars..yes lost money, now I could of quit….but I considered it my tuition.
Sometimes we all get stuck in a rut, just like at our jobs…..we go to work everyday and go through the motions, but we really do not try to excel at what we do. We get caught in the same rut in our internet businesses, we go through the motions but we do not really try to excel at what we are doing. Yet we still expect to have thousands or hundreds of dollars coming in, even though our effort and commitment does not meet our expectations! When things are not working so well for me, I roll up my sleeves and go to work, I will not stop until I get results!. There are many days that I have made the commitment that I can not quit until I get at least one new subscriber to my list, setting goals and sticking to them is extremely important…….It gives you something to work for and keeps you going when nothing seems to be working.
This is what I hope to portray to you is an attitude that you will never give up and you will do what ever it takes to be successful online(if that is what you really want). But stay the course, believe this is it……….I do not care if you get -0- subscribers your first six months………you are learning and it takes time, but do not undo your past six months commitment by quitting, otherwise you will lose out on what the next six months may bring you. Success is not an accident…….it is not the lottery……..nobody will do it for you………teambuilds will not make you rich. It is up to you and only you…….Dave Gray and Scott Douglas have you on the right path……….there is no better programs then the ones they have created for us, just stick to it and keep working it……….eventually good things will come to you.
Believe first and the rest will follow…..
To Your Success And Happiness
