I asked him loads of questions and most importantly I wanted to know why it is that so few people actually make a full time living marketing online. It's the holy grail. The reason why we're all on here so why the hell don't more people succeed at this thing.
Here's what he told me.
The number one reason people are failing in this biz is that they are running around in circles chasing money instead of doing the things that they enjoy.
think about this. Internet marketing is such an incredibly broad industry. It takes years and years to master everything.
Unfortunately most of us when we start are running round like headless chooks trying to write articles, do keyword research, advertise on PPC, understand wordpress plugins, get our heads round SEO, learn to do graphics etc etc...
Not even the most well rounded person in the world good master everything.
Think about kids who get a new computer game. When they first start they're hopeless right?! And then after a few days they've been playing non stop and they get really good really fast right!?
When you love something you can learn 1000 times faster than if you are doing something you hate.
Also when you love what you do you can see it through all the hard times. You keep on going when things get tough.
When you're not enjoying the thing that you're doing it's much more likely that you'll get sucked into the next fancy sales letter. You'll stop the thing that you're working on and move on to something else.
So the number one reason people fail is that they don't stick to one skill. They chop and change and try one thing for a few days and then move on to the next thing.
Everything works. Nothing is dead. It doesn't matter what system you are following all though the more simple the better. Stick to your traffic strategy until you have MASTERED one of them. And then you can move on to something else.
