Well I found it, and it was right there all along!
I had it back in my brick and mortar days, and it served me well. I just kept believing all those people that told me I could ignore it and use the Homer Simpson method: Turn on the computer and tell it to "Send Me Money!"
Guess what?! Nobody did!
So I kept running from one shiny object to another, and ignored the voice in the back of my head that kept saying "Hey Moron! We still know what works!"
I am not saying that I hadn't made any money at all in this vain pursuit of the Magic Bullet, but I hadn't really Hit The Jackpot that we are all after...
At long last I started to notice that something I was doing was having a cumulative effect that I hadn't noticed before. And when I went and examined it, I found the answer that I knew all along.
You can't get it anywhere else, and nobody can sell you anything to do it for you.
It has two parts.
1. Consistently Work.
2. Repeat Whatever Achieves Good Results.
Since I realized that this formula was in fact The Magic Bullet I had searched high and low for (as the voice in my head laughed maniacally at me) I have achieved soooooo much more than I ever thought possible...
I get more articles written, posted and published.
I get more High PR Backlinks to my sites and blogs.
I get more sites, blogs and offers live.
I get more subscribers than ever before.
I get more JVs going.
And it just goes on and on. Regardless of the economic situation, the news or even the latest Google/Twitter/YouTube Slap...
Regardless of anything external to the formula, my business grows and grows.
Now I am not saying that I don't buy any Marketing Tools to automate my business because I do. But I go and find the products that I want to fill a need I have, or to learn something that I cannot learn through my Work Process, or to automate a process to free me up to Work Consistently in more areas.
So I am almost never even tempted by the latest greatest widget or Super Launch, unless it fills a need I was already aware of.
It is so liberating to know that as long as I Consistently Work at the things that have produced results that my business will continue to grow.
It's also far cheaper to walk past all those bright shiny things too...
