This brings me to my first point... Most of you who have messaged me over the last few months have all said the same thing. Also, those of you who have been posting, I see a lot of people saying that things aren't working, or that they can't get anything to work for them.
Well, the first thing you need to consider is how much work are you REALLY putting into your business? I are learning more than you are taking action, or are you taking too much action without learning skills to improve yourself? You need to focus on where your energy is going, and create a balance in your life.
The next thing you need to consider, is how thin are you spreading yourself out over different opportunities? Most people aren't seeing success because they are trying too hard in too many different areas.
Me personally, I work fast and hard in one area, until it works. I don't stop until I see results. This means I could end up spending 4-6 months on something before I see any results. When I do see results, no matter how small, I scale on what I did to make it work. Eventually, you can exponentially scale your business to where you can back off a little at a time, and maintain solid income.
Now, I make five-figures a month. I worked hard for it, over several years. The more I do it, however, the easier it is to make more. It's simple repetition and education mixed up with action.
To answer the question of, "What am I doing to make money?", I do several things. But I started with one: Affiliate Marketing.
I learned a skill set, and then just advanced my skills and knowledge on top of that. I learned to create websites with a purpose, write in a way that gets that purpose accomplished, and focus my viewers in the conversions that I wanted them to take.
Of course, I learned PPC and CPC Advertising.
I learned how social media works. I learned to market on social media platforms, build followings, and use tools that make life much simpler, and get more done in less time.
People become successful by using the best tools they can find. If you aren't using any tools that help you accomplish your goals with your business, you are going to spin your tires, while a noobie passes you because he or she is using the tools that make life easier.
Secondly, the next thing that I started doing, is my friend and I built a local business marketing agency. I we now market businesses in our local area. This brings in A LOT of money, for minimal work with the skills that we have learned from the years of affiliate marketing.
Success is all about growth. If you aren't taking the time to learn, take action, make mistakes, and grow, you aren't going to be successful. Pain is part of progress!
I hope that you all are learning something from this, and if you ever have any questions, let me know. Use the forum! Reach out! Many people on here are very successful. They stick around to help others reach where they are.
