The title will make sense shortly. Through my high school and college age I trained hard in self defense. I entered point-sparring, kata competition, and weapons demonstration- winning trophies and medallions.
I thought I was the best of the best, until I met someone that I consider a guru to the teachings of martial arts. He said this to me. "Traditional martial arts makes you learn 300 techniques, 12 different katas, and board breaking." He continued, "I believe if a yellow belt (just above a novice) diligently practiced the basic moves - kicking, punching, and blocking for 25 years, his fighting style would be just as effective as a certified Black Belt."
I said, "What? How can that be? The Black Belt is a Black Belt because he knows so much and knows many advanced moves?"
My guru friend responded with this enlightenment, "When you get into a fight, you go back to the basics. The basic blocks, kicks, and punches is what you will default to. All the other stuff is just flashy."
Now, I'm not telling you to work on a technique for 25 years in order to make money. But, what I am saying is this, stick with the basics! Be diligent. Practice, practice, practice, and you will become a black belt through experience.
Forget the advanced, flashy stuff and stick to the basics!
If you want to start making $100 a day, then do that "one technique" over and over, and do it well.
Article writing works, if you stay consistant.
PPC works, if you stay consistant.
Blogging works, if you stay consistant.
Adsense works, if you stay consistant.
CPA works, if you stay consistant.
I think you get my point.
"You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity." - Mr. Miyagi
If you stick with the basics and wrote 3 articles a day with your website or affiliate link attached, then within 30 days you would have 90 articles written, traffic coming in, and quite possibly hitting your $100 a day marker.
If you worked on PPC, did split campaigns, found a good campaign and multiplied it, in 30 days you could quite possibly hit your $100 a day marker.
Be consistant and be patient with the little stuff!
The yellow belts only see a profit of $12, get impatient, and tell themselves to move on to more advanced, flashy Black Belt techniques because that's where the money is...
True, but you need to "first learn stand, then learn fly." - Mr. Miyagi
If you don't take time to learn the basics, how are you going to be successful with the advanced techniques?
You must have a strong foundation, you must practice, practice, practice, then you can become a Black Belt in Online Marketing.
Here's to your financial freedom - Black Belt Style
All the best,
