What's working for me...

8 replies
I'm finding that the more I test things on my own, the more profitable and successful my online business become.

It's really hard to figure out what works unless you test something. I've gotten advice from "gurus" and other sources of "magical" knowledge..lol, but the only thing that's ever really worked for me is testing my own system and mastering it.

Once you've mastered your own system, that's money in the bag for you, literally. Now you're able to teach others what you've accomplished. There's always going to be a market for those who want to learn how to do something.

I'm not saying this is going to be easy money because you have to be willing to put forth the effort in learning and perfecting your own system. It's taken me months in some cases to see results from a system I've started, tweeked, tweeked, tweeked and finally mastered....but in the end it'll pay off.

You're biggest reward in most cases will come from teaching others.

In 2008, I created a system on myspace that generated nearly $10,000 a month. Boy, those were the good old days for me. I tweeked the system day and night until I hit my bulls eye. It was a B-hat tactic and didn't really have a chance for long term income. I knew that, so I had a friend put together an ebook for me and I sold it on another forum for $350 per copy...yes, $350 per copy. It was limited to 50 members of that forum. I made around 20k in a month selling that ebook.

Now I'm on to some whitehat things, I've been experimenting for the last month. I've found something that works for me....so guess what's next??? lol

If I can do it, so can you! You have to be willing to bust your butt for something...

    Sure if you find something that works for you then great. Now it's time to Test, Test and Test some more until you get your system running at it's maximum. Like you've mentioned you documented your process and sold it as an ebook...
    That's the way to go, find something that works and then share the knowledge with others. Similar to what goes on here with the WSO section of the forum.

    If you don't test you stand to leave money on the table, plus if you're a geek like me it's kinda fun!

    I love it.
    I have ever done that thing.
    I read an ebook and practice it and while practicing it, I find that there is one trick that is responsible for 90% of the income and I focus on it and develop it.
    Good share

    yup, that's how a lot of marketers snowball their success. they learn how to make money (it doesn't have to be a lot, it can be just a few dollars per month or even just some common sense tips) and then teach others their system. After they make money selling their system, they teach others how they made money selling their system, and so on and so on...

    I also find that things that don't work for other people work for me. So without trying things out you could be leaving money on the table.

    This is a great post. I actually think it's a major reason why a lot of marketers will buy a WSO, try it, and then it doesn't work for them.

    A WSO alone isn't always enough. Many times we have to tweak what we've been told to do if we want to get the best results.

    Don't just use a system- use your system.

      Great information in your post. I have found things that work great for me that I have heard other people say didn't work for them. If I just took their word for it I would have been out of money. Testing is great and something everyone should do.

    I AGREE GUYS. wso alone is not enough. NO ONE WILL GIVE AWAY SECRETS THAT ARE WORKING FOR THEM. I MEAN EXACT......EXACT.....THINGS. I BELONG TO A FORUM, I PAY 99 DOLLARS PER MONTH. you can tell tell people always hold back. i do not blame them. it takes so long to make it.....you can not give your secrets away that easy. that is why i always laugh when a wso says "i want to give back to community" . i will buy from them if they said they are selling this wso to make money......lol...
