Ask yourself this question...

Do I spend too much time chatting about Internet marketing and not enough time marketing on the Internet?

I once asked myself that question. The answer and the corrections that followed were life changing.

Now, go on with your day.

    I used to waste so much time. Tried to do social media marketing. Would get distracted. Now I focus on things that make me money, and I just keep doing them.

  • I actually find this forum to be a profit killer.

    When I used to spend hours reading and learning on here I was missing opportunities to make money. Now I come here just to give myself a 10 minute break or so.

      Maybe you could help. I would love to get down to a more efficient 10 minute break. How do you choose what to prioritize on this site?

        Anyone with an ounce of common sense would know that. For the rest, well, if they don't realise that then there's no hope for them anyway.

      Wow - another Been There Done That

      Right now I'm waiting for a contract so my hands are tied, sort of. I'm still working, just not publishing.

      I also came over here to see wha's happenin' these days, and the forum has been an excellent source for check this out and have you tried that. I always head off to check out each new acronym and in the process I'm learning a lot.

      But once the final contract comes through, I'll be off and running and will have some serious challenge questions. No time for lounging.

    I think that marketing on internet is just a way to don't waste your time, but on the other hand you don't have good chance or enough freedom.


    Thanks

  • Thank you for your question. I think you are trying to chat in this thing. We can see that this forum is where people chat and ask question. You post a thread telling people that chatting on the internet is wasting time. However, you are chatting in this forum by posting the thread. It is such a good contradiction. I think you are trying to chat instead of doing marketing.

      Not really a contradiction. Before yesterday and the day before, OP had one post in April (regarding a service he owns) and nothing else past January. If anyone isn't indulging in idle chatter, it's him.

      Pays to do your research.

    Short and Epic....is there a class for that?

    Well we will have to add an asterisk because we all know if you have a sig with a link that you are actually still WORKING AND MARKETING. Hopefully like you adding value over laying down keywords and the S.O.S.

    I do agree. I work with one guy who is seriously unfocused. He talks a good game, has some amazing ideas, but that's all he does, talks about his ideas without putting them into practice, and he still wonders why he makes no money. I do believe he was having a negative impact on me, so I had to be polite and told him I won't be chatting for a while.

    I don't normally let myself get distracted, but reading a few posts here and there is a break for me and more like entertainment than waste of time

    When it comes to focusing on my work, I even have my skype offline so I wasn't tempted to chat. But chatting is not all that bad, sometimes great ideas come from these chats.

    Thank you Mr. Rose. Short , sweet, and straight to the point

    There are a lot of people who are guilty of this here.

    Really an epidemic...talking about the Dream and really being consumed with this constant rumination and not doing the actual work to attain the Dream

    Such a spot-on question. When I actually asked a few of my group exactly this question at the weekend I was met with some angry indignation! It was as if I had uttered some awful insult about a member of the family.

    And funnily enough, the really indignant ones reluctantly apologised 24 hours later with platitudes and excuses. Things like "OK maybe I could spend less time watching feline Facebook videos..."

    The point Brian is making is that it is nothing to do with anyone else if you want to waste your time on social media sites pretending you are working. The bottom line is 'how much did you earn in the time!'

    In the end it's all about Self Deception - one of my favourite subjects! We can convince our minds of anything...

    Maybe I'll share with you some of my thoughts on Self-Deception in a post if you ask me. But they are like a powerful searchlight going through your head. All your Hidden Motives have to be faced as well...there will be no dark corners.

    Kind Regards
    Richard

    I agree that is a question that could change productivity drastically. Nowadays I use the forum to help others based upon my years of experience.
