It seems that the same questions get asked over and over again.
I'm not sure if people pay attention to the answers.
Most of the time, the answers are quite spot-on.
Most of the time, the answers actually deliver solid value.
For some reason or other, the same questions keep getting asked.
Well, if you really want to get serious about making money online, let me direct your attention to one key thing you need to do.
It has nothing to do with the traffic you're going to generate.
It has nothing to do with the type of website or online property you will develop.
It goes much deeper than that.
In fact, this principle is crucial to you not just making money but scaling up that income and keeping it for the long haul.
You have to remember that making money on the Internet is not a problem.
Most people can do it.
You can freelance, and you can make money.
I mean, it's pretty straightforward.
However, building an income system that scales up with time and requires less effort as you make progress truly takes work.
It doesn't just take physical work.
It also takes mental work.
You have to look at the big picture.
You have to prioritize.
You have to push yourself to be more efficient.
This is one thing that I've adopted that have helped me tremendously throughout the years.
I've been at this for over ten years, and I've achieved quite a bit of success.
I don't mean to blow my own horn, but I've built many e-commerce websites.
I have helped Chinese companies sell products in Europe.
I know how the game works.
I've had my shares of success, and I've had my shares of failures.
Let me tell you, failure is a powerful teacher.
In fact, my complete experience, both successes and failures, have taught me this one thing I will share with you.
What is the one thing that will make you money on the Internet?
Building a systematic way to learn.
I can't emphasize this enough.
Most people tackle online business by building something and hoping it will work.
A common version of this is "build it and they will come."
This doesn't work.
It may seem to work in the beginning, but it won't work in the long haul.
You have to make sure that whatever you do constantly changes as you get more information from your visitors and your target audience members.
The simplest way to do this is to build your business around existing traffic.
Next, you need to come up with different versions of your content as well as your traffic engagement models.
You can tell just by looking at your statistics which variations work.
You keep making new variations until you get the level of engagement and conversion you're looking for.
This may seem straightforward and might even seem very simple, but you'd be surprised as to how many people build something and expect it to run on an auto-pilot.
Implicit in this way of doing things is the thinking that what they have built is perfect.
Nothing is perfect the first time you build it.
You have to continuously tweak your formula until it produces the results that you're looking for at a consistent clip.
You have to wrap your mind around this concept.
Otherwise, you are playing the game to lose.
