If you are like the VAST majority of people that come into the world of internet marketing looking to earn a little extra money, or even start a whole new career, only to be lost in the sea of possibilities YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Very few people come into this industry and are not quickly overwhelmed by all the “stuff” you can do, all the dfferent directions you can take and all the stuff you need to learn. Add to that, the fact the internet is constantly changing and it is easy to see why so many people fail.
I feel your pain because I’ve been there myself…many…many times in fact. I still can find myself on that slippery slope of shiney objects calling my name from the internet ether. It was not until I discover the two must import secrets to internet marketing success. The first is so simple, yet it is without a doubt the most challenging. Allow me to illustate the first “secret” I discovered…
Try this excersise..look at the image below and try to stare only at the white dot in the center of the image. Do your best to use ignore everything else around the white dot in the center. Concentrate on it hard enough so that nothing else seems to be moving, then see how long you do it before things around the white dot start to move again. Do you notice how the second you stop focusing on that small white dot all of the sudden all the crazy swirling distraction starts again?
Ok, so what is the first big secret to be successful in internet marketing?
FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS on ONE thing at a time! You have to focus like a laserbeam on the one thing that you have decide makes sense for you to work on to achieve your goals for your internet makerting endeavor. We will talk more about how to figure that out in another article.
The second ”Secret” is that you have to TAKE FOCUSED ACTION!
Your time should be spent 80% DOING and 20% (at the most) on learning. The idea is to master one thing before moving onto the next. A great way to take focused action and stay commited to it is to decide what you really want, or need, from your internet marketing business. In other words, are you looking to generate quick cash? If so, find one thing that can bring you the quick cash you need work on that until you achieve it. Then look at longer term strategies like building a list or an authority website.
When you take action you WILL make mistakes but you will also gain experiance. There is no replacement for experience!
Ok let’s rap this because I think by now you get the point! FOCUSED ACTION until you achieve what you set out to do. Once you determine your course of action…focus on that white dot and don’t take you eye off it and let all the shiney object noise fade away! Believe me…they are not going anywhere and it is a never ending shiney object slide to nowhere. I know because I was lost in the shiney object ether for years…watch the video just below here to see how bad it was for me…I show it to you to let you know that I really do speak from experience. As a matter of fact, I am thinking of starting a Shiny Object’s Addiction Anonymous Support Group! So remember FOCUSED, ACTION will get you the results your desire.
