Default My Secret To Making Money Fast By Doing Things a "Certain Way"

Hello Fellow Warriors,


I'd like to share with you my personal experience of how I was able to go from a total newbie to full time relatively quickly by doing things a "certain way".

I meet a lot of people here that have been struggling for months, sometimes even a year or more to make consistent money online. Hopefully the following insights will help some of you to move into the profit zone a lot quicker.

In my opinion, the biggest mistake most new marketers make is jumping from one "shiny new" method to the next. They never give themselves enough time to go through the proper experimentation and learning curve to master any one method. They are too easily distracted and impatient.

Pick ONE proven method and stick with it. Become passionate and obsessed with it. Only focus on that method until you've gained some level of mastery over it. Ignore all other methods until you're making money with the first one.

If you see other methods that catch your attention, make a note of them, bookmark the info and put it on the backburner for later. Stay the course.

This is what I did in beginning. I focused exclusively on one proven method and turned a blind eye to everything else. I read every course and forum thread I could on the subject, asked a ton of questions and most importantly... I TOOK ACTION right away. Because of this approach I was able to get into profit very quickly. I was able to make a profit within my first week or two as a newbie and went full time shortly after that.

So which method do you choose? It should be a method that you resonate with, that excites you. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the skills to do it – if there is a step involved that you’re unfamiliar with, you can learn it. We have a massive amount of info here on the WF and you can easily learn new skills if you’re determined.

Make sure the method is a tried and true method, not a brand new one that may get saturated in a few months.There are a ton of new methods coming out every day that have not stood the test of time. No doubt many of them are effective but others are not. As a newbie you should choose a method that has a proven track record of success. That’s why I chose the method I did – I knew for a fact that many people were making a solid income with my chosen method because of all the forum posts and courses on this subject. Sure, there were a lot of other methods that looked more exciting and promised “$1000 per day for doing nothing starting today” – but those types of methods didn’t have the stability I was looking for. I wanted to have as close to 100% confidence as possible in whatever I was going to commit to.

Once you’ve achieved some success in IM then you have more freedom to take some risks and experiment with newer methods. However, I still apply this “choose one method and stick with it” approach when learning new methods. I look around and see what excites me, I choose ONE method and totally commit to it until I’ve achieved some mastery over it. Rinse and repeat. Before you know it you’ll have 3-4 methods under your belt that you can rely on with confidence.

Naturally there will be times when you commit to a method and it just doesn’t work out for you. You’ll minimize the likelihood of this happening if you stick with ones that are tried and true. However, occasionally I’ve dumped a method. Here’s how I know its time to throw in the towel: When I lose ALL enthusiasm for it. I’ll take a break and come back to it and if I still feel totally uninspired to continue then I know its time to move on. There is no sense in continuing to do something that drains your energy. Just don’t be too eager to quit too soon. Challenges and set backs may come your way, that can be a natural part of the learning curve and you should learn to work through them. But when every day becomes a struggle, then you know its time to reconsider your path. Either make some adjustments or let it go. Don’t beat yourself up.

I believe the approach I’ve outlined here is the “secret” to fast success. It worked for me and I’ve seen it work for many others. This approach is responsible for me making consistent profits almost immediately as a newbie and allowing me to go full time shortly afterward.

I encourage you to choose ONE method TODAY that excites you. Make a commitment to it. Become obsessed with it. Have enthusiasm for it. Live, sleep and breathe this one method. And most importantly… TAKE ACTION ASAP!


To your success,
Matthew Olson

Wow! You Rock!

Great advice. After 3 months of floundering, I've finally figured that part out.

It's hard to focus because you always feel like there is so much you don't know. I want to work with clients and have to appear to be the pro.

I once read Sandra Bulluck had studied acting soo much so finally said enough studying and just got there and did it.

I'm going to just get out there and do it! Whew Ok starting monday

Hey Matthew...great post, well put.

After nearly a year of bouncing around from one method to another, I too am starting to see (a little) success from article marketing, which I use to promote my little niche sites.

I wonder if you would share with us your favourite course/thread on article/bum marketing?

Regards

Matthew,

Great Post! I'm a newbie and at this moment I'm doing my research about IM. I have realized that there are so many different methods. I have tried to pick one of them just what you have said in your post but they all say "This is the best method, you can earn xxxx bucks a day". I'm really confused?! Any advice for newbie? Thanks a lot..

Yes, the key is to be consistent. I have been trying all sort of methods and thus doesn't work out as much as I would like. Now that I have found my 'method' I am going to see it through. Thanks for the reminder.

The funny thing about "methods" is that sometimes they work in conjunction with each other very well to make a killer-combo method. For example, article marketing and list building go very well together. Niche review sites and adsense/amazon go well together. I have found that just because one method may not work well by itself doesn't mean that it isn't a highly effective supplemental method for another...Just my $0.02...

Right there with you about starting on Monday. Fits perfectly in to the thread I started the other day.

http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...challenge.html

Basically it is just a thread for beginners that will help motivate each other and get everyone to commit to actually doing something instead of nothing in the month of November.

Time to finally take action. Hope to see you or any other beginners there!

Thanks for the reminder Mathew.

The problem is, unless we try out a bunch of different techniques/methods and first hand experience the frustration or the profits,we always wonder if what we are not doing, is somehow holding us back (w.r.t profits).

But of course, by the time we have sampled a few different ideas/techniques, a lot of time and money has been burnt.

Vijay, the key is to go back to the basics and not get sidetracked by "bright and shiny object" syndrome. The time tested methods work, but they are typically tedious and not the most exciting thing around. The issue here is that many newbies don't want to work and focus on these tried and true methods, but instead want the quick and easy riches.

For example, Matthew started on article marketing (tried and tested), which still works to this day. How many people do you know out there (especially newbies) who are willing to focus on this unabated for several months until they see results (usually after some testing and tweaking)? I think you already know what the answer to this question is....

The sad truth is that the majority of newbies will read Matthew's post and think it's all basic stuff they already know about. There is a huge difference between knowing and actually believing (and implementing) it, though. Knowledge is utterly worthless if not applied.

Most people get side tracked with stupid things like reading emails and facebook when they could be making money, newbies often doubt if there can be money made online and often get caught up in the gurus dream the ones being sold to them.

Matthew is 100% right find out what niche and system your going to follow and stick to it, treat it like a business not a hobby and it will pay off.

I have a similar story to you Matt. As soon as I started focusing on a specific business model (also article marketing. Not bum tho) things started to fall in to place and I started to see consistent income. Then I got the taste, followed by total obsession! The rest is history!

So, your absolutely right! Focus = RESULTS!!

This is so true. Many newbies keep seeking the "magic bullet" system thinking that it'll magically make them rich overnight. The truth is there aren't any big secrets in IM, and you could probably pick up all the knowledge you need to start a six-figure business in here and in the War Room. However, not many people are willing or able to actually put in the effort to get there.

Knowledge without application does not bring you any results. And you do NOT need to study IM for 1 year or more in order to come up with a winning system - it's more than likely already right in front of you, but you need to work hard applying the system in order to see any tangible results!

This sounds a lot like a metaphor I read once about pushing a car. Basically it says that if you push a car it will start to move very slowly, but if you keep pushing it will eventually gain momentum and move easily.

So it's the same, instead of looking for another car to push just stick to one and do your best to make it gain that momentum.

Great post and totally true.

But.....

What about chosing a profitable niche first? How many months do you write articles with little to no sucess before you decide that the niche and keywords you chose are taking you down the wrong path?

COOL post Matthew. I totally agree with you....apart from being LASER FOCUSED and "OBSESSED", here's what helped me:

- unsubscribing from "gurus" lists
- checking emails ONLY twice a day (NO automatic send/receive)
- checking messages and answering the phones ONLY twice a day
- scheduling my day (like literally having a time table of sorts)

The above 3 things works wonders, as it allows you to 'focus'.

Awesome post Matt! In this business it is so easy to lose jump around from method to method and lose focus while not getting much done. We are constantly bombarded with "the next best thing" to making money. Stick with a method that you like, work hard and you will see results.

That car pushing analogy is perfect. Most of us start internet marketing by trying to move a whole parking lot full of cars at once. Racing from car to car, we get a little movement and then rush over to the next car and start pushing. Sure, you can get a dozen cars moved a few inches this way, but better is to get the keys out of your pocket and use them to move ONE car to your desired destination.

There is also the "speed" factor.

There are methods that are slow to show results, probably too slow for the newbie. The beginners work, they don't see results, they look for something else or they quit. Because we human beings need to see some result fast.

That's why, in my opinion, paid traffic is better than free traffic, especially when you start. It shows you results fast (even if you suck, you see it fast) and it PUSHES you to be accountable.

If you use free traffic methods you can spend months doing social media, article, linking and so on and thinking you are working very well. But you aren't getting any money in that Paypal account, just lots of content (so what).

If you have your money on the line with a PPC campaign you better understand how it works. It's like doing trading with a real account VS a paper account.

So I would say: paid traffic is better for the newbies and free traffic for the experts. Unfortunately the opposite usually happens...

Best,

Marco

This is the best advice that should be read by new internet marketers (well include me). Almost everyone I know in the online money making world before, jumps program to program. But now I realized how that interfered to my success I finally settled up in affiliate marketing.

Yes, there will always be an area that resonates with you. You just feel comfortable with it. I totally agree that you should buy every possible course on that particular topic, and totally focus on it until you achieve success. Follow their methods and don't stray or take shortcuts until you get results.

Fantastic advice for the new guys .

I also think that mindset has alot to do with the success and failure of businesses - especially Internet marketing. Theres alot of distractions, but with the right mindset, you can block it out and start your journey to making a profit.

Thanks for this post. Focus is the key to making money online. Focus on one method or system till you make money. Now I'm focusing on one method and try to ignore other methods, but will keep in the back of my mind, so that when I have succeed, then I can use other methods or system to make it better.

Well put Paul - I agree, as a newbie the key is go back to basics and
not get sidetracked by the "bright and shiny object" syndrome.

This can be easier said than done. We are bombarded by so much info
that it takes a considerable amount of self-discipline to stay the course.

But if you can do it, the rewards can be substantial... and fast.

To your success,
Matt

I got swept away a few days ago when I discovered the forum and started working on a different IM method that I heard about here. Last night I said screw that and went back to what I was doing and today set up my second affiliate marketing site.

This post was a good affirmation.

I love this forum, affirmations and information. Even when people aren't so nice, they are civilized about it. I'm cool with that.

Matt, I couldn't agree more. The issue of information overload is a very real one in IM. It takes self-discipline to stick with a tried and tested method when there are product launches for new-fangled systems promising instant riches occurring every few days.

I feel like focus and self-discipline are probably some of the most important traits to possess when it comes to succeeding in IM. If you don't have them, you could be lost in the wilderness drifting aimlessly from system to system for a long time without any results to show for it.

Okay,I have already made a promise to myself to stick to ONLY article marketing for at least 3 months before I decide to jump to another method. I agree wholeheartedly with Matthew. In fact the sales that I made are through writing articles before I got distracted into doing something else and the sales just stopped....

Thanks bro!

So, your absolutely right! Focus = RESULTS!!

Well said, Paul. :-)

There's nothing more frustrating than having someone say: "I know that!"

It doesn't matter what you "know", it's what you DO that counts.

Article marketing is basically advertising using articles -- information marketing.

It's classical, traditional, and it works. It will probably work for a few years yet. :-)

Bum marketing was all the rage a few years ago. It was a method of marketing affiliate products by writing articles for the article directories, without a site of your own. It involved picking low-competition keywords.

The big challenge was that people just wrote hundreds of articles, and never created a real business.

Good job on catching the Wallace D. Wattles reference Daryl.
I was hoping someone would notice that!

Wattles advocated doing things a "certain way" in order to build
wealth. His classic Science of Getting Rich was a life changer for
me. Sometimes we need to create inner change before outer
change will occur. But that's another topic for another thread...

Meanwhile, here is a free PDF copy of the Science of Getting Rich.

Uhh! You are correct, this is why many newbies do not make money, I personally wasted almost a year and a lot of money buying this and that before i could fix a good programme. I wish the newbies could just meditate and take action, it is better to learn from the experienced. Thanks for your product ' ARTICLE MARKETING SHARPSHOOTER METHOD' Any newbie that lays his hand on it will stop wasting his time in reading this & that but will be able to concentrate on what will give him money and reputation. Can you or anybody please explain in details the term 'backlinks'

Bum marketing, by its very definition, is article marketing on a very shoestring and in many cases non-existent budget (i.e. $0), which in the strictest sense of the word means writing articles and posting them on free web properties like squidoo, blogger and hubpages.

Regular article marketing can and should include having your own domains (and hosting) that you can direct people to from ezine articles and other article directory sites. If you're ambitious, you can even set up squeeze pages with opt-in forms to send your visitors to, allowing you to capture your visitors' emails and follow up with them. Of course, this is not true bum marketing as this more ambitious approach requires a domain, hosting and also an autoresponder account.

If you want to treat your article marketing as a true business, then at some point or another you definitely want to move away from just bum marketing, which by its very nature is not designed to be a long-term and sustainable business.
