Want to make money online?
Of course you do, everybody does… and you should, cause it’s AWESOME. Let me tell you what obstacles you have to overcome to get where you want to be in your life. It’s just the way it is, you gotta pay the price.
However you should get there faster which is why I created this post and truly hope it will help you understand a little better marketing online and business in general.
Obstacle 1 – Too much crap online
I’m pretty sure you have already read a ton of meaningless articles, bought some over-hyped products, searched through plenty of online forums and done some other regular not that result producing activities to find the key to online wealth…
How do I know?
Because it’s full of crap online and you can not manage to sort the good without stumbling onto some BS first. Gladly I will help you do it, cause I’ve already learned how to sort the gold.
The first obstacle you should overcome to make money online is to strictly select what you read and who you listen to.
Just the other day I was at a blog that was supposed to be owned by a top-notch marketer(having in mind how well it was designed and everything), but guess what, its owner made 700 a month, which I know from their own claims.
That person had over 19 000 subscribers who I’m pretty sure will never manage to make any decent money online, simply because they follow the 700 dollars/month making methods. Some might jump over that, yet most will suffer.
This example is just meant to point out what I mean and how vital it is. Follow the right people if you want the right results.
Obstacle 2 – Budget for marketing and business growth
Pretty much everybody who is into internet marketing once had nothing or close to nothing to start with, which is the reason they chose internet marketing in the first place – it is known to be ‘free’ to market products and make money.
Well, this misunderstanding can waste you a lot of time so you have to accept the fact that you need money to make money right now. I know you have probably heard that a million times and think there might be exceptions to that rule, but I’m here to tell you there are not!
How to find money?
I’ll be honest – if you really have nothing it will be a problem… not impossible to find something though. Here’s how to do it:
– get a job and save even if you have to eat once a day
– borrow some from friends, family or anybody you can if you are comfortable with it
– surround yourself with rich people and make them see the potential in you and help you out. Of course you will pay them back later.
– offer some service for money – whatever you are good at, offer it and market it for free until you find customers and start making money to invest in your business and grow. That can take a while though, so be patient
– Rob a bank, LOL – although that sounds quite appealing I don’t recommend it. 🙂
These are about the options you have if you have no money at all. Choose one and come up with some money to be able to really grow a business.
Obstacle 3 – Becoming a good marketer
You either have to become good at marketing, or find people to do the job for you. Me, I have never liked marketing that much which is why I have ways to find people do it for me. I can do it, yet I choose to concentrate more on the entrepreneurial side of business.
However let me tell you about the one thing you have to master if you ever want to become good at marketing – attracting people.
Marketing is all about attracting people, not about PPC, or SEO or bla bla bla… sure you have to optimize your pages, sure you have to do paid marketing, mobile marketing, yet the one thing you have to master is attracting people to you.
You can do it by showing them results, or money, blogging, telling stories, or giving them advice, or helping people somehow or whatever works for you.
How do you show results and money when you have none?
Four options you have here:
1 Fake it – works well for some
2 Tell stories – possibly the most effective marketing approach
3 Blog a few times a week – to be able to come up with content regularly you have to read a lot as well.
4 wait until you get some results. Then whatever they are, show them and be proud of them. There will always be people who will need to see what you got. Then with time you will get better results and attract more people.
When you start making money show people you are successful. They will like you and you will make more and more.
That’s pretty much how attraction marketing works… and marketing is all about attraction.
Obstacle 4 – Emotions Control
You can never become rich if you don’t learn to control your emotions. I’ll just leave it right there, as that’s about what you have to know about controlling your emotions.
Obstacle 5 – Defocusing
The Internet is the one place you could defocus in a part of the second, which is why you have to be very careful not to do it. Pick something and stick with it until you have the result you want. If you made a mistake choosing what you chose, leave it behind as soon as possible and find what is right for you…
then push until you make it happen. That’s how winning is done!
Overcome the five obstacles and you will make money online for sure. I know because when I was starting online I did not have a clue what to read, who to follow, I had no money at all… and when I say no money at all, understand not a dime. I had to borrow 25 bucks to start.
I wasn’t a good marketer either, nor was I capable of controlling my emotions. The one thing I’ve always been good at is focusing. I had to overcome those 4 other obstacles myself, but I tell you – It’s sweet on the other side.
I’m waiting for you my friend, because I know you will get there too.
How do I know? Because you just read the most awesome money-making post online. 🙂
