I now realise how poor most offers of success really are. I have always believed in good honest work to a plan. Most of the money making schemes ignore this in favour of idiotic and simplistic promises that carry no content.
To illustrate here is my story.
Having hung around here and a few other online places I have finally found success with my efforts.
I started following the path that many newcomers do of trying adsense, affiliate marketing, pay per click and everything else.
About the turn of the year I moved off in a new direction and have now really started to make some money.
I say this not to boast but to tell you what made the change. I hope that it will help others who are close to giving up.
I chose one type of internet marketing and stuck to it.
The detail is that I decided to turn away from internet marketing as a niche for me to make money in. Instead I am finding my own niches and producing the products to fulfill the needs.
I occasionally promote affiliate products within my own products which produces far better conversions than review sites.
I am in full control of this process and can tweak and change things as I see fit. And as I learn I apply anything I learn to my own websites. So I work, review what I am doing and then work some more.
So what am I earning from all this. I will not say but I will give you the signs that tell me I am on the way to success.
- I now sell a product of my own nearly every day.
- I have growing lists of subscribers in 2 niches
- I keep selling clickbank stuff even though I do not push them much
- I keep getting monthly cheques from adsense
- I have 6 more products to produce when my current sites are fully on autopilot
- Articles directories have sent me about 20,000 visitors since September 2008. The articles keep on working.
The point of this post...
Do not fret and concern yourself with earning $100 per day with adsense or $3000 per month by following someone. Most of the people who run these programs disappear into a big hole when it doesn't work. (It doesn't work)
Do simple things and make sure you own your own piece of online real estate. Adsense/affiliate marketing and the rest are for you use to your advantage when you see fit. I do not think they will bring you success as an end in themselves.
