And it was just recently that something REALLY stuck out to me when it comes to making money online.
Out of the thousand plus phone calls and thousands of emails I've received from prospects who were contacting me to improve their marketing... I noticed an incredible trend.
Those business owners who consistently talked about making more money and having the greatest product... they were typically the ones who were struggling the most. They were the ones closest to being broke.
However, those marketers who repeatedly kept talking about "reaching more people, helping more people, solving more problems, etc.... in almost every case... they were doing better financially than those who strictly were focused on making money.
Those who would call me and tell me that their main goal was to make money... those were the businesses that typically just had an ebook, and landing page with poor copy, and pretty much no traffic.
But the folks I talked to who were more customer driven, who repeatedly would say things like "help more people, or solve more of their problems"... in most cases had several products, a complete sales funnel of low and high priced products, and pretty good marketing that was focused on helping the customer.
And amazingly enough, this ran pretty much parallel to my own life and career.
When I used to "chase the money" more often than not I ended up broke.
But when I started focusing on helping more and more people, the money started flowing in uncontrollably.
Not at all.
I've learned the true secret to making money online is trying to help out
the largest number of people possible... help them solve a problem.
It's that mindset that will bring in money.
If you're simply online, trying to do everything you can to make
money.... you won't be doing the things necessary in your marketing.
To make money online... find out what people want and show them
how to get it.
Problems, wants, and needs are markets... you wanting to make money online is NOT.
The bigger, more extensive and more painful the problem--- the bigger
People don't buy without a want, desire, or problem.
So if you want to make money online, stop trying to make money online.
Instead, start trying to help as many people get what they want.
Do THAT... and I promise, the money will follow.
