IM Could Be Really Easy If....

10 replies
Well hello beautiful people,
I have been on this forum for a few months. I came in knowing nada. I know abit about marketing but IM was new to me.

After spending a few days and nights on the forum, I realised that I have no desire to learn about CPAs, OTO, AAA, ABBA (Ok, the last two are fake, hehe), and all of the other bits. I also realised I did not have the time as I run my business pretty much full time. But I still wanted to make money online.

So what did I do?

I stuck with the one thing that I am good at - ideas. And I am creating a team of people that know about the other stuff. In the words of Lauren Hill, it could all be so simple, but you would rather make it hard. No point in torturing yourself. Focus on one thing that you are good at, and align yourself with other people that can do the rest.

It is very easy to get confused fast, caught up and frustrated. However, I am believer in working with your talents. That is not to say don't take the time to learn new things, but if you are going to learn, realise that it won't come overnight and be prepared to study like crazy.

I know what you are thinking. What has been the results of my strategy? Well, in my first month of being on WF, I hooked up with two awesome people. Second month, I took the time to refine my product. And this month? Well this month I am going to launch my product. With the help and expertise of two really great people, that believe in this crazy creative chick. Because of their track record, I know it will do well. No sore head trying to figure it out. No scratching in the dark. No sleepless nights. Just my product, a couple of people helping me to get affiliates on board, doing the sales funnel, the CPA, AAA, etc.

That's it. BTW, this forum rocks!

    It's nice to hear it only took you two months to take action and do something - the best thing you do was to avoid all those formula/systems like CPAs, OTO, AAA, ABBA and so forth... because they can drain your pocket and waste time quickly.

    A real business is what I like too where you create something new and useful and share it with others - instead of using some freaky make money fast formula!

    congrats

      True words! The problem is that people are always looking for shortcuts and that's why people jump from method to method. They think there must be a way to reach success faster but it isn't that easy at least it wasn't for me when I started. But like you said sticking to something and building a real business is the way to go.

      Thanks Jack. Good to hear that you are creating a business too. I don't think there are any shortcuts to success. People can help you get there quicker but discernment is key.

    Congrats Lizfish!

    Keep being proactive and keep pushing forward and you will get the success you desire.

    I am glad it took you only a few months to get a grip on things as for most, it isn't that way.

    I know it took me 3 and a half years, yup you heard that right... It took 3 and a half years for me to finally focus on one thing, push forward and start seeing success.

    All the best to you!

      Thanks Michael. It has taken me a few months in IM, because it has taken me a lot longer in business (over 10 years). I think running a business before you go into IM is useful as you learn to manage your expectations, it helps you to avoid shiny object syndrome and in my opinion, helps you to be decisive. I have made a few mistakes in business (and had some highs), but the experience has helped me to wade through the hype. Surround yourself with the right people, and it makes the fluff easier. Good luck with your journey Michael.

    Hey Liz,
    Thats great. What you have done in 2 months many people have NOT done in 2 years or more here at WF.

    Seriously.

    It is great to hear stories like this, and I hope your story 'kicks' some other Warriors in the behind and gets them to take action NOW !!

    Thanks for the positivity all. As said, it has taken me a lot longer in business and I have made my fair share of mistakes. But as the saying goes, fortune favours the brave. Sometimes you have to stop procrastinating and just do it.

    When I first came onto the forum, I nearly got dizzy and was scared but what I didn't know. It is easy to get overwhelmed. A word that I have read on here from experienced IM-ers is focus. So that is what I did.
