I need to get excited again! Help!

11 replies
Hey guys,

I've made a decision to buy a shiny new object.

Now, just hear me out here, I'm not looking to stack up on shinies, but I've decided to allow myself ONE purchase only this year.

Here's the thing - A while back I pulled out of the IM game and deleted my lists, stopped managing my relationships, I threw everything away due to personal issues.

Now, I just want one simple strategy that I can use every day to get me excited about online marketing again. Something that if I put a lot of energy into it will grow exponentially.

I'm not looking for a get rich quick scheme, or a push button product. Just a solid strategy that will work well enough to get me excited again.

So... any Ideas?

    Maybe you should tell us your skills/passions so we can suggest something practical.

    Maybe you can't see how this is related, but spiritual growth was what really did the work for me. Get some Deepak Chopra's books and try reading it. You might actually enjoy it.

    Spiritual growth will help you for your overall happiness about everything, not just Internet Marketing.

      Hey guys, appreciate the feedback!

      I'm doing quite a bit of soul searching as well. Gone back to a dayjob in sales. Money is allright, but I wanna get into working for something that's my own again. Gotta light that fire, and results does that for me.

      I don't care if I make 1 dollar or 1000 right now. I just want to see results.

      Anything is interesting as long as it's online marketing related.

      LOL! Yeah, maybe. Don't think I'm in a midlife crisis yet though buddy.

    Hey ckarling,
    nice to know you decided to treat yourself

    To direct you better in (what I humbly think) the useful direction,
    answer this: is the Landing Page Creator getting you excited?
    is this the main way/product you wan to get excited again, implement strategy/relationship models, escalate, etc... ?

    Perhaps making something with the askplanet.org domain?
    I dunno... entering the holiday planner & offers market???

    Or the case is a completely new shiny purchase [niche/product/blueprint],
    in kind of terra incognita for you?

    Sent you a PM, by the way...

    Best regards,
    Adrian

      That's a great reply.

      A lot of stuff had me very excited for a while. Listbuilding and affiliate marketing is what actually made me money, though I was way to inconsistent.

      Oh, and Askplanet.org was one of those "learn by your mistakes" projects. hehe. Just bot's and fake traffic set up by the previous owner flooding the site with complete garbage.
      In short, I will not touch that domain again with a 10 foot pole!

      Terra Incognita would be good. I love discovering new things.

      Yeah, true. I did enjoy that.

      Maybe I should just go back to what I know. Slowly building a buyer base and see how far I can take it.

    There are so many different ways to make money online. I think it will be dependent on the skills that you have and whether any of the money making model is appealing to you.

    But if I want to build something long term, I will go into the List Building model where I will get into a niche market where I have passion in.
