The Secret to Overnight Success

22 replies
So I've seen a few "overnight" successes both inside and outside the
IM arena in my 10 yrs in this biz.

Truth be told, in most cases, they actually weren't quite overnight successes...but they did fast track their success.

What happens in most cases is that they monkey around with a few
traffic systems...don't really get anywhere...then they decide to do
what the 6 figure earners do:

And that is create assets.

They decide to jump feet first in the deep end so to speak and create their
own product.

And that doesn't have to be a huge course or anything...a 10-20 page report will do for starters. You can always add to it later.

I have a friend that is doing just that. He is from the UK and just started after the New Year and he is going all in on this and already has his
product done, his sales page up, and now is working on traffic.

His sales letter nor his product is perfect but he is going to do well
because he didn't wait until things were perfect to get
things going.

He will make improvements to his product and sales page over time as his
skills improve...and that is the name of the game.

To summarize, the "overnight successes" got that way because
they created assets and leveraged other people's traffic and they quit
spinning their wheels with all of the different traffic and money making
systems out there.

And you can do the same.

    The greatest overnight successes are created from months, if not years of sweat.

      It will depend on how you define success.

      In this case, nailed it. Having your own product can really help you cut off some unnecessary expenses and time. That's the beauty of the digital age, we don't need manufacturing costs to create and duplicate our products. IM is the industry that gives the same return, maybe even better.

      Overnight success in this path is really the way to go. Just need to come up with that idea and then boom!

      Thanks for the post.

        Many people believe and hope for overnight success, but they are the lazy ones and will never reach success, people that put in the effort will reap the rewards

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for sharing such a wonderful real life experience!

    IM is unpredictable and so are the IM businesses. Henceforth, it is better to scout out the best from the rest, and keep going with your hard work.

      I once saw an interview with music icon Willie Nelson, not long after his first huge album hit.

      He said (something like) "I've been writing songs and playing honky tonks and dive bars for twenty years before I became an overnight success."

      If you focus on actually building a business instead of monkeying with all of the Instagram Ninja and Facebook Gorilla courses out there and just focus on getting your buy buttons online, you'll achieve your goals much faster.

    It resonates with the ideas from The Fastlane Millionaire, which I have recently read.
    I did started my blog, even though my English is not perfect, but I'm trying to build my brand, as MJ Demarco wrote.
    By the way, who read this book?

      That's awesome as I have added that book to my wish list a while back. Haven't gotten around to reading it yet...but it is on the docket.

      Another thing I want to point out is that one of the main barriers to success in this biz is the trap of always learning...and never earning.

      Way too many people get caught up in trying to learn every traffic technique, every money making method, reading every book before taking action.

      I know this because that person was well as many of my customers.

      Yes, it is a good idea to always improve your skill set...but the fact is, you don't need to know every method in order to make a full time income...just get good at the few key skills that bring the dough.

      Thanks for the reminder of that book...I hope to get around to it this month
