Planning Ahead - A Better way to evaluate "Is time spent worth the effort"
Tracking the small steps to progress
Is the time worth the effort?
In order to build a successful online income there is considerable effort involved. How do your justify the time when nothing much seems to be happening?
The answer to that question will help many people stop program hopping and knuckle down and actually treat their online marketing activities like the business it can be. Looking at online marketing with the right attitude, will set you apart from the crowd. So far apart, you no doubt will rise towards the top of what ever it is you market.
Building your online engine, as I call it, takes time and effort. Developing a Contact Base, learning how to Build Your Own Web Pages, learning how to get the most out of Traffic Exchanges, Auto-Responders, Safe Lists, Banner Exchanges, where you can place Advertisements that get read, working Forums, Optimizing your website and Submitting to Search Engines plus what ever other online activities you can put your time into!
No wonder it takes time! Look at all the activities you MUST engage yourself in to become a success, and you must do it in a systematic and committed way!
So is the time worth the effort?
YES YES YES!
Done properly and with a steady effort, your online business will grow. The more time you spend building your engine, the bigger the ship you will find you are Captain of. The larger the ship you are captain of means more money you will be paid. If you avoid spending the time to build your engine, guess what - you will have nothing more than a raft and a small paddle going no where.... and earning no money!
Lets suppose you work a full year and now you are earning a whopping $100 bucks residual income a month! If you look at that as an insignificant amount and consider the hours it took to get there and you will be tempted to give up. But wait - $100 bucks "residual" income a month is now coming into your account every month.
Think about it this way - How much money invested at 10% return does it take to earn $100 bucks a month or $1200 bucks a year? The answer is $12,000 dollars. Your online business is now worth to YOU, the same as if you worked overtime at your job, then with your overtime hours you were able to save $12,000 bucks and invest it at 10%.
How many hours would you have to work overtime at your J.O.B. (or a JOB if you are retired) to earn an extra $12,000, "After tax dollars," to save?
That is the only way to make sense out the time spent building your engine.
Your Online activities can develop into a residual income that could allow you to retire from your J.O.B. earning more than you are (or were) paid for making a boss's business profitable.
Look at your tiny income with open eyes. Your tiny income is like interest earned on cash invested (time is money) .... thus it is worth a whole lot more than you most likely think.
So find a product or service that appeals to your character and lay out a game plan to make it pay you. Then see your income as what it is..... it is the interest earned on the value of your online business.
So build a HUGE engine by taking the time to DO the things laid out above. Do that for a period of 3 years. Building your engine larger and larger, while fine tuning every aspect of your activities and then tell me how you are doing!
Only YOU can Make it Happen - no-one else will!
