Its good to be back and having the ability to post again after a quick spell offline due to the wonders of the human body!
Since being back, and not for the first time, I see common questions rearing their ugly heads again. Most of these questions raised seem so important to many but all fail to grasp the simple 5 principals of the real way to make it online (of course there are subtle derivatives).
I make no bones about this and feel free to slate or comment on (in a productive way) this post.
By this I mean your ENTIRE focus and questions should only be about nailing the following (in no particular order):
3. Product Creation
4. Getting It All Up and Running
5. Tracking - track every traffic source to your site (thanks to trafficmasters and RSMarketing for the reminder!) to find what traffic sources are bringing sales.
Work on these five areas and you will make it. Focus on one and fall by the wayside.
