First off, I wanted to say thank you for all the responses on my posts. Nothing makes me happier than seeing people find value and work towards their goals. That's what I live for!
In this post, I'm going to talk a little bit about mindset first, and then I'll give you a business example of what I use to make solid income.
With that said, let's get to it!
I know a lot of people on here are jumping around looking for "the best system", or the "latest and greatest techniques", or even an "easy way" to make money online.
Look, if you want to make money, the first thing you need to do is FOCUS! Why do you want to make money online? What's the purpose of you chasing this idea? If you just "want to make more money", that's great, but it isn't a strong enough force to pull you into working every day till you succeed.
You need to have a FIRE inside of you so hot that you can't sleep until you succeed! It needs to be so strong that you will melt every wall that gets in your way and keep pushing!
Second thing, you need to stop getting "shiny object syndrome". Stop chasing all of the fads and latest products/systems. Pick ONE, and stick with it! If it isn't fulfilling enough, keep learning on THAT SYSTEM! Find another product that is still in the same area as the one you started.
You need to take action on what you learn! If you aren't taking action, you'll never go anywhere! Even if you fail, you're still trying! Keep failing until you succeed!
Third, you need to understand that people buy from people. Don't try to be the best salesman. Work your hardest at being the best person that helps your audience as you can!
You need to think with a Progressive Mindset, is what I call it. A Progressive Mindset is finding out what you did wrong, finding a solution, and pushing harder. You keep going, even through set-backs, over and over again until you succeed. Once you succeed, you keep learning, and keep pushing! You can never be too good at what you do!
Now, let's talk about a system that I used to start making solid income online;
I started with Affiliate Marketing. Simple content promotions and traffic through social networks and paid traffic.
Everyone talks about this! It's because the basics WORK! You just have to work at it! By work, I mean keep trying till you see ANY results! At that point, you know it works, and it'll be easier to expand your business and income from there!
After I got Affiliate Marketing down and learned the basics to the point I was making some money in my niches, I decided to take a few of the products and ebooks I was promoting for myself and learn from them.
I found a few issues that still weren't solved in niches, so guess what I did... I created my own products to fix the problems that I still didn't understand or resolve! Then I launched them through my affiliate sites. Guess what! I made sales! A lot! Why? Because 1, people loved what I was doing for them and trusted me, and 2, I focused on helping people, not making sales.
By doing this, I was also able to create products that I could attach affiliate products to, such as a product for healthy eating with vitamins or recipe books. This way I was selling my own product, and through that product, I was creating affiliate sales! Even more so than from some of my websites!
In conclusion, I want to say that there are endless ways to make money online. It all comes down to staying focused on ONE system, working your @$$ off until it works, and expanding your skills/knowledge.
Once you find a little success, you will learn how easy it is to continue, keep pushing, expanding, and build your business even more.
I hope that you all open your eyes, put in the work, stay focused, and make your dreams come true through hard work and education in the areas you need.
Best of luck, and take care everyone!
