I have been on this forum for a number of years, and selling online in one capacity or another for over 10 years.
I have done everything from selling on Ebay, running my own email site (which I still have - hotmail and gmail are tough competition ), web design, graphic design, affiliate marketing, article marketing and product creation.
I have to say, no matter what amount of money each method I used made, I got the most satisfaction out of doing the things I love most. For me now it is product creation. I love finding a niche, an untapped need in the market and designing something to meet that need.
So what is the purpose of this post? In the last month, I thought i would branch out and try to make another passive income stream with new methodologies I haven't tried before. I followed strategies to a tea. I was excited to see the results.
The results were average, obviously I would need to devote more time and effort into mastering this particular skill. But you know what? I'm not going to, because I don't actually enjoy the process! It seems as enjoyable as shovelling dirt to me
Do what you love people! Follow your passion! Find your own niche! Stick to your strengths and you will excel!
There are a thousand different methods we can all try on the internet. Some are lucrative, some are fads and will only be effective for a short while, some are red herrings that divert us from our business plan or true calling, and some are downright shams.
Once you find something that works for you that you love...stick to it! Just ramp it up. By that I mean replicate the SAME process again. Use Virtual Assistants and outsourcing to lighten your own load, and manage the whole process.
When you are doing this and Web 3.0, or Stomper 7 or TubeBook or some other crazy new fad comes along that everybody else is talking about....ignore it! They'll be busy chatting and dreaming, and you will be busy consistently making money.
Chase your dreams Warriors, stay positive, remain passionate and FOCUS!
