Success Means Constant Repetition
There is a strange but much needed bond between Success and failure, and you cannot have the one without the other. Making money online and eventually claiming your financial independence, where your level of success will be determined by how many times you have failed.
Strange, right? But being strange does not change the fact that these two combined is a proven recipe to greatness. The difficult part however is to accept the fact that you Will Fail, again and again, and perhaps again. Leaves a bit of a bad taste, I know but if I’m going to sugar coat the truth then my readers may just keep going in the wrong direction.
If you do not fail, well then you are the first Online Marketer in the history of the internet to accomplish that and you should get a medal. Failure is not the end of the road but a mere Bend in the road, and you’ll stand astonished at what you will learn once you decide to pursue your dream.
Every successful Online Marketer, actually every successful person will tell you how they failed. But what separates them from the not so successful people, are their stubbornness. Success is all about going from failure to failure without the loss of enthusiasm, but it’s important that you know where you are going and what you want to accomplish.
What is Failure Really?
Failure is what builds your knowledge, and the more knowledge you have the more advice you can give. It’s called branding, and if you’re going to make life changing kind of money online then you want to be recognized as a Professional by your Audience. You cannot offer a solution to an established need within your niche, if you don’t know what you’re talking about.
Yes you can spin your articles ‘till the wheels come off and it still would never beat original, relevant and useful content. And the only way that you will be able to provide that kind of info is through constant research and yes you guessed it, Failure.
Did I know About Blogging and S.E.O When I Got Started?
Quite the contrary because I actually chose a niche where I had very little knowledge. Kind of like getting thrown in the deep end, and my fascination with something that interests me had pushed me in many a deep end before. When you keep going in one direction, you’re bound to cross paths with success. Unfortunately there are no clock, because it’s not a contest. Making money online is an art, but more importantly it is tiny steps in the right direction.
The desperation caused by failure is the true enemy, and you must learn to concur that. Not only must you choose something you enjoy doing, because mere enjoyment is not enough. You must be fascinated, and your willingness to learn must overshadow all doubt.
Cultivate a gentle stubbornness second to none, because it will serve you well on this journey to which there is no final destination. Constant change is the basis of our existence, and with the internet it is no different. That is why there is no final destination because it is a constant expanding empire.
The WWW Road to Achievement?
Yes, WWW. Because you need to know What you want to do, Why you want to do it and with Whom you want to share it. What that means is that you must start by discovering your profitable niche. This is where preferably a hobby comes in handy, because naturally you love doing things related to that hobby.
This will give you a bit of an advantage, because you will already have some level of expertise or knowledge which will make content creation a little easier. You will also have a better idea about the audience you wish to target.
Constant repetition is crucial and also the exact method used to rank in major search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo. So accept the fact that a website and a blog will have to be created at some point in time, it’s just how professionals reach their impressive levels of success. Building back links, inviting search spiders and engaging your audience is exciting but time consuming.
The Reality Of Possibility
Legitimacy Of Impressive Screenshots
What about the impressive screenshots, are they real?
Well, truth be told you can download impressive screenshots from many royalty free sites. But not everything is fake, there are a few systems and programs that are legit. They are however, as real as they are rare and you simply have to look in the right places by researching what professionals have to say. Most systems and programs to make money online are nothing more than tutorial, which is exactly where failure may ambush you.
The real fancy screenshots are an indication of what can be accomplished, but must not be confused with what will be accomplished. It’s all about gathering the right tools and then learn how to use them to their full potential, because any tool only works as good as the person using it.
Do not allow the fancy screenshots to mislead you by thoughts of instant riches because that is not the point. It’s called marketing and sadly may be abused in some cases. Rather strive toward creating your own fancy results because they may just to your surprise, end up better than the screenshots you have seen.
Decide on a system or program and go with it until you see results, contact support, pay attention and never rush in an attempt to make money faster. You will be sadly mistaken.
For every method and tactic you master, you will grow the knowledge you need to be recognised as a professional. Failure and Success both will be companions on this journey toward your financial independence, and you must learn to embrace both. Failure is not the end, it’s the beginning and always accompanied by repetition.
Fascination must inspire your efforts and not desperation or haste, because there is no quick fix to financial difficulties. Accept the fact that you must work toward many different goals to achieve ultimate success, it’s a path and not a race track.
How long does it take to make money online?
As long as is needed for you to gather the needed knowledge and offer the appropriate solution. This will vary for each individual, what you put in is what you will get out. It’s a simple but undeniable equation, which is why you simply have to keep going.
Professionals can only provide you with the right tools, and all the help you need. In the end, it all depends on no one else but yourself and how hard you are prepared to work to reach your next goal.
Repetition must become second nature and you must learn to enjoy that, because each repetition will result in a new skill learned. You never actually fail online, you simply learn or you earn and you will soon find yourself in a cockpit with lots of buttons. All you have to do is learn what all the buttons are for, and why and when to use them.
Don’t expect perfection, but rather concentrate on progress. Direction is so much more important than speed. Plan your tasks and know the purpose in order to create a winning circle of online activity. Tiny steps in the right direction while enjoying repetition and embracing both failure and success.
The sky is not the limit, your believe system is.
The Two Steps To Take First
There are two crucial steps you may want to take first, before you fall victim to wasting a lot of time and regretting it at a later point in time. Ultimately, the only real “Secret” to making money online is determined by both your quantity and quality of your site traffic. Therefore you have to be cautious as to exactly what kind of exposure tactics you’re using, because getting the wrong traffic entirely defeats the purpose.
You need to establish both the volume and origin of a particular site’s traffic in order to leverage the audience effectively. Now this is done both easily and at no charge with a site called Similar Web, just enter the keywords into your browser and follow the first link on your search page.
Now, not all URLs may be mature enough to provide you with the needed data. In which case Similar Web will notify you that it is a fairly new domain, and haven’t matured enough yet. This does not necessarily mean you must avoid an immature URL, but rather visit the site and explore a little.
This is how you choose sites like Social Marking and Publishing websites to get your content exposed. Sites like Hub Pages and Fox News have Millions of visitors, but more importantly High Quality visitors. Hub Pages for instance have over 40% of their visitors from the USA, but they require original content as do all Professional sites. Professionals do not accept Article Spinning content, and the only way you will be able to provide them with such content is Product and Niche knowledge.
Establishing a site’s quality and quantity of visitors is only the first step, and determining the site’s page rank is the next. Establishing the page rank and basing your exposure on that will increase your amount of high quality back links, which is extremely important to your own site’s ranking.
Checking a site’s Page rank in Google is also done by means of a free tool already available. The tool is called Page rank Checker, and as with Similar Web you simply type the keywords into your browser and follow the first link on your search result page.
Two simple, but effective tools that will soon boost your exposure and quality of your visitors. When you get recognised as a professional by the right audience, it will serve you well on your journey through Online Marketing.
