I haven't posted in a long time, so thought I would pop in and 'give back' so to speak.
If you are yet to take action, or you are feeling overwhelm OR a bit bogged down with how many routes there are to take when making money online or building a biz I thought these tips would help.
Here we go:
1. Just Choose: A lot of people I speak too, clients and people I say on the forum just around from thing to thing - 'shiny object syndrome' - the way to get past this in my opinion is to understand that making money online will always involve value creation.
You have to have something of value for someone to pay you, this can be something you create or something you promote as an affiliate.
To get started focus on your interests, you don't have to stay there, but a lot of my early successes were interests of mine and I found a group of people with similar interests, because I knew the niche it was easier to help these people.
Choose something. Whether it is Amazon, Clickbank, CPA etc... give it 100% and don't stop until you get a result. Then you can access whether to move on, a lot of people end up dabbling and don't make any progress and get into the pinball cycle of going back and forth.
2. There is no ONE way to promote: I see a lot on this. What's the BEST way to promote your offers or site? Use EVERYTHING!
Email marketing, Social media, Video sites, YOUTUBE etc.. New comers, Periscope etc...
Press releases, JV's etc...
PPC - The FASTEST way is to work on HOW you want to get traffic - SEO = slower but if you work hard it DOES work - I have built whole businesses just on SEO but don't rely on it - have other stuff going PPC, Youtube, Email lists.
Start with content, start getting content out there and thinking "How can I get this in front of people that would find it of interest?"
3. Learn what you need to take action. You will NEVER be an expert at everything. This is similar to the first tip but pick something you want to try and see the best people in the field.
Practice, learn but most importantly take action!
You will make mistakes, you may not EVER get it JUST right.
Be Yourself, Add your personality into your marketing - don't focus on selling, focus on solving problems to the best of your ability.
I hope these tips help, they are just my 'take-aways' and things that help me in my biz.
"Never, ever, ever, ever give up!"
All the best,
