kangaroos don't make money, people do

On Sweeva I see a lot of people promoting a new program everyday or week. Why is that, I ask myself. When I had a successful online business making me enough money to retire, I would be on vacation on some tropical island.....And I would certainly not change the program but stick to it!

Every day I receive tons of emails with new exciting offers: become a member, refer 3 and you can retire. And that is the problem, getting (and keeping) the referrals. Even when they sign up and they drop out after a few weeks they are no use to you.

To be honest, I tried this too. Many offers sound promising and tempting. The result is that most of the things I signed up for have zero referrals and some of them even did cost me money to join. I do not think is different for the most of you. However I am getting some results now with Golden Ops Safe List by sending out e-mails with a provoking title. By the way Golden Ops Safe List offers a free FREE PRO Membership to 1st 1500 Members (I just looked, they have 1095 now). The other one is A tool so powerful and effective, it has been demonstrated to deliver 19.5% click-thru and 29.17% conversion rates, AND it eliminates nearly ALL of the issues you have with other traffic tools and methods. You can cloak your links to prevent others from steeling your commissions. When you can create a lot of traffic bar links for example on a start page or if you have an advertising system of your own you can advertise practically for free. If you can't you can buy credits. I use my new portal to generate links.

Why are you trying on-line business? My guess is the most of you do now want to quit their day job (if you have one) or buy a Ferrari but that most of you are trying to earn some extra money to pay the bills.

I was lucky to stumble on the E-book "Stop being a victim" of the OBA (online business alliance). This also cost me 5 dollar but the best 5 dollars a have spent so far. It prevented me from making more beginner mistakes and wasting more time and money. My entire business plan is now built around the things I learned from this E-book.

One of those things I learned is to decide for one or two programs and stick to it. Good programs are programs that provide possibilities for a stacked income. OBA provides this. Other things you need is advertising, the reason why I became a super promoter on MEB & ATM, a great community for internet entrepreneurs with unlimited free advertsing. Surfing TE's is good also if you do it the right way, if you are doing it wrong it is a waste of time. I also bought my own TE where free members also enjoy a surf ratio of 1:1. There are some promos running now, check it out on page program info.

One of the programs I will stick to is GDI. I do not make much money with it now because it is hard to get referrals. I did not join any GDI-coop: i do not believe in them because most sign up come from opportunity seekers who will drop out again after a while when they do not make the big bucks. But I believe in the product: good short easy to remember domain names, important for branding. Since it is getting harder every day to find a good affordable domain . com and .net is is to be expected that companies all over the world are going to look for alternatives. (the few customers I have are such companies who will not drop out because they actually use their domains for their business). Read more on

In order to succeed you must be willing to invest both money and time to succeed. But if you do that wisely you can succeed with internet business ( I am starting to see first results after 6 weeks of hard work). So make a decision and stick to it.

Good luck to you all.

Paula. Great article. I agree that focus in a business is important. There is something to be said for the value of several complementary ventures in that they can provide different forms of value to address different needs. If you want to use a vehicle to grow your GDI business, I encourage you to explore AshMax.
