Treat your online business as a business - not a lottery!

Oct 17th 2010 at 8:55 PM

I have  borrowed some of the details in this brief discussion from a Rolution salespage. The reason I have done this, is quite simply because it said what I believe very succinctly and supplies figures to back up the statements. I certainly have not verified the figures myself, but have no trouble believing them

I personally spent a year bouncing from one 'pot o gold' to another, I became involved in various ponzi schemes around which inevitably collapsed taking my 'investments' with them. I could get only very few and scattered signups to my programs (even the good ones) quite simply because, in my pursuit of easy money, I was neglecting the learning required. If you want to be come a baker, you learn to bake. If you want to become a mechanic, you learn the skills of a mechanic. Why is it that people think that to become a successful internet marketer all you have to do is signup and pay your dollars? The fundamental laws of economics are not repealed online, you must work to make your online business work, just as you need to work for the success of your bakery or workshop offline.

"Every year Millions of dollars are spent around the world by people just like you who join online opportunities that claim you can get rich by doing absolutely nothing but pay a fee. People spend an average of 5 years and $10,000 before they finally learn that no such thing exists."

Scary figures and I am sure glad that it only took me 1 year to learn! The income to be gained from a successful online business is unlimited except by how hard you are prepared to work to attain it. Work now towards selected goals and reap the harvest for years.. in fact bequeath the harvest! A good business will be that worthwhile.

"They say: The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. If that is the case then the Internet is definitely the world's largest insane asylum. Every day more and more people come online and get sucked into the game--this is a game you don't need to play. If you are already playing, it is time to STOP"

The above snippet is very apposite. How many times have you said to yourself '..this time. This one will do it!..this one will make me rich!'  or other similar platitudes? A serious question to ask yourself and keep asking yourself, the hype merchants are very, very good at what they do.

You, too, need to become something different to succeed online. You need to become an internet marketer. When I first started I sought out this and that ebook and video tutorial..  I now have oodles of 'em. Most of them are unread or certainly not adequately understood. Many if not most of these publications are well worthwhile and valuable resources to maintain at your disposal but information overload approaches all too fast!

Some ideas and concepts you can never seem to grasp haunt you or just get ignored. Imagine if you had access to responsive and accessible mentors as a part of membership of a community. Could you see that situation being beneficial to your business? To be able to ask your questions live in a webinar and get feedback from members of the community as well as the administration? A thriving and active forum where your questions get answered and real assistance proffered?

Call me biased, but my online business is now firmly ensconced within the best such community online. Not only do the regular marketing training sessions cover the various systems which make up the QUIK Family of Advertising programs, they also provide training and advice for the effective usage of various marketing systems offered in the back-office. many of these programs compete directly with their own but Clint, the owner, appreciates their value as a resource and encourages his membership to fully utilise them.
