a) I keep it simple.

b) Us small guys have been led by fear for too long, too many rumors, too many mistakes people make with their own sites and then blast the forums about "how it is".

c) It's nonsense, so back to your question - I can work my plan by fear or by a positive attitude. I choose the latter.

d) Overanalyzing adsense will do nothing but freeze your efforts, so I keep things very simple.

e) This may be the dumbest question that I ask...Where do I begin?
Begin anywhere. Choose a topic and put up content, anything. Get moving.

f) I procrastinated for almost 2 years waiting for some perfect tip or the right kind of site/topic/system to use. There is none. Just start putting pages online.

g) Please keep in mind that I'm not advising anyone to do as I do.....I do it this way because it is what I enjoy.

h) The biggest issue that stops 99% of everyone just starting out is a failure to take action. It's so easy to get caught up in what niche to start with, what article directories to submit to, keyword density, etc...It's all about taking action. And those who do it are the ones making money.

i) Sometimes we get so overloaded with the latest tip,a quicker way, or waiting for some magical program that will just allow us to hit a few buttons and see the money come rolling in - long term money at that.

j) Even though I do have a few tricks up my sleeve that's not what's made the REAL difference in my business - the tricks are just a means to the end. (They're not even necessary for the long-run, whatsoever.)

k) Just sell what lot's of people want to buy

l) You know, it used to take me MONTHS to roll out a simple 20-page site. That's because I would over-think, over-plan, over-strategize and "perfect" things to DEATH.

m) So stop planning things to death.

n) And no, you don't have to orchestrate some master-plan to conquer your niche in 15 days with the world's best marketing plan like your favorite Guru. Screw it.

o) There is no 'secret' to making money online. There are many new strategies that someone may have developed or improved upon...but the essentials most of you already know. There is no 1 strategy that works online.

    Your list is a hoot - but true.

    Strategic action combined with a solid plan of attack is the key to success with any business.

    Good post.

    Perhaps some of the info-overload crowd will read this and get off their keister. (butt)

    Pick your plan of attack (online business model ) and get busy!

      Some here are suceeding, even when they fail.

      Always see post here that say:

      "Help!! I did all this stuff, failed at seo, failed at email marketing, failed at ppc, failed at list building, only made 2 sales this month, only got 1 click this week, etc.,etc.,.... and I am ready to give up and toss in the towel, please, someone, give me some advice or just kick my ass, I need anything".

      Don't even know or realize they got 96% of most people beat, maybe its even a higher number than that, even with all those failures because they took action.

      Like that dude in the Superbowl or one game away from superbowl, I think the Titans, when dude was stopped at the goal line, and with arms and body stretched to his maximum, the football was just inches or even only an inch from the Big Score.

      Everyone felt that feeling, even if you did'nt root for his team.

      The only way he or his team "failed" is if he did not put 100% effort in his chosen endeavor, like they say, leave everything on the field, and if you do that, no need to look back, you truely did everything humanly possible, on the field and off.

      Failure is non-action.

      Joe Louis and Ali just "happen" to "give boxing a shot" simply because someone said, "try it and see". They were not even thinking about boxing as a hobby or living OR EVEN something they were EVER interested in.....just took somebody to say, "look over here a minute" and the "ACTION" to turn their head and say, "sure, why not, I'll give it a shot".

      THE most saddest stories in the world, that make the top 5 in history, are those who were better than Micheal Jordan or Albert Einstein, and life , bad breaks, bad decisions or just millimeters from glory, and one makes a turn , giving up, never realizing that they were pretty much right there with just only a half more of a step.......potential unused and NEVER realized, the world will never know the unfathomable human amazement we missed.

      I agree - do something, anything, but no progress = no progress. This game is all about momentum, so get ya some...

      Great damn post, man.
