What is online success

Personally in order to leverage anything online a person must consider certain things before starting out. Below will be a listing of what it takes for starters to simply acknowledge the well known fact that to succeed online you must be willing to learn what it takes to do so.

5 useful Tips:

  • Achieving online success isn't a game to be played with, even though many succeed by creating games of their own to earn their keep.
  • It takes knowledge of how the web works for the most part, and the in's and out to it all.
  • Before deciding to take the plunge on the web as a whole, write down what your good at first, then think of what your not good at, and write yet another list.
  • To learn about how the Internet works in terms of earning a successful revenue stream and how it places such functions into full effect here, you need to do your research.
  • Start on Wikipedia, search for anything related to the Internets beginnings, how it was established, and which ways it can be utilized effectively to render the best effects, both visually as well as in all audio formats of digital mastery.

It takes time, but you can earn your keep here online


So what does it take to succeed today online

In order to earn anything in terms of a monetary value, you need to be wise for starters and learn how anything online can become what is known as monetized.

There are loads of methods to earn today, but if you start up anything online, make sure you understand that places such as Youtube, Amazon, Ebay, and loads more are verifiable web locations that one may achieve such online success.

As a writer today there are loads of websites and networking locations dedicated to earning an honest income, but as many people think from first approach, and looks at these locations they assume they will earn money by simply writing something into their online portals. Unfortunately this is not the case, and it isn't as easy as it appears to be.

Things to Know to get anywhere online today:

  • Many online successful entrepreneurs seek their very own web presence, website, blog site, or online networks to pursue earning their way up the success ladder here, this is one sure way to make it, but it isn't the easiest route for those who lack funding, and skills to make their web location stand out above all the rest.
  • SEO, keywords, social elements of making effective communications, keeping your content fully optimized at all times, social curation, usage of video powers, and more are just examples today of what it does indeed take to make it.
  • Creativity, upscale productions, online and on the ground marketing campaigns, tooling, web apps, cloud apps, knowledge of cloud computing, and many other themes are also what you will need to know about and in order to get anywhere for most business minded individuals today, freelance writers or the average person seeking revenue.
  • Learning about affiliate networking once you have established ownership of a business website of your own will make all the difference.
  • To gain traffic to it your website is another story, and will require deep insight as to many unseen elements. (Many are listed up above in the second line here of things to know)
  • You may need to create a blogging location in conjunction with your actual business website, and especially if there are no funds available to pay for marketing ad's of your own. (Google Adwords works wonders for business owners, who need to market their website.)
  • Google Adwords - is a location on Google where business owners can purchase advertising space, and can get their web location known around the Internet by means of Google ad's.
  • Once you join it there, you will need to pay for advertising of course, but you only pay when people decide to click on your ads. (Google Ads get placed onto all Adsense participating partner locations, such as those here on Hubpages up above.)

This dude knows how to freestyle, but loads it with successful terms

Being real poll

Have you tried your hands at creating a video of yourself at least to achieve anything online, or write a great article

See results

How being realistic counts hugely

You must be realistic with yourself, and think to yourself that the online world has been in place for many years now, and in order to get anything going, you must establish yourself on the Internet. This may take years of course to do so, and mainly because of all the stiff competition here, many millions of people have gone before you and many of them have already gotten themselves well established. (The art of being real online is truly powerful!)

So does this mean for you to simply up and quit, and when you notice your not really earning a thing yet, or what you once thought or imagined could be earned.

Well no of course not, these things take a certain type of creative mind to factor out, and to learn all the digital ropes per say. Now the good thing is that there's room here online for each and every person who attempts to gain a true success.

The ways we all learn to go about it are so vast, some folks try everything without a focused initiative, and because there truly is no one way to make it online. There are literally hundreds of thousands of options available so its easy to see why many people fall short, or simply give up by quitting (Article about the whole quitting thing).

We need to seek such things out as self optimization (Official Hubpages article on how to augment self optimization), mastering content delivery, and to learn the most refined methods to it all, and most wisest as well to reach and attain our desired goals.

      Hey Mike, I really love reading these type of hubs and yours is a wonderful succinct way of detailing success! I say this while admitting that I couldn't watch all of the videos because my internet is being dumb today, lol. But I definitely need better coaching on the ins and outs of the web because I would like to turn this into something bigger than it is quite frankly. I'm considering doing what Bill told me about setting up a wordpress account and several other things but I definitely need the coaching. I appreciate your honesty and details in this hub and I may be revisiting it so I can glean! Great job, voting up and I'm going to be sharing!

      @mpropp , I'm learning what it takes, but to truly discover the magic formula all so instantly would also be to ruin the anticipation of sweet success and all the fun of it right!

      I think that's why I love the challenge of trying to master this digital content rendering craft and all, whether it be web design, online writing, video making or whatever, its truly worth the challenge.

      Thanks for the cool comment and for sharing with me, you are so cool!

      Good stuff, cloudexplorer! Learning the ropes of the internet and all the different ways of marketing can be overwhelming. I wish I new the magic formula...of course, if there was one then everyone would be using it and it no longer would work anyway, right?

      @rfmoran, thanks bro I did my very best on this hub as I do with each one I decide to publish today.

      I just wish I knew the magic formula to attract more viewers, but until then I will continue to throw these hubs up with an intensity like no other for sure.

      Oh and joining or becoming affiliated with any group I also believe would be smooth too, as long as they're willing to share with you, cool stuff though bro.

    • CloudExplorer profile image

      Mike Pugh 5 years ago from New York City

      @KBEvolve, yeah but online it definitely takes a certain type of ability to attractive viewers, and by all the methods I stated here for sure, not sure if you liked that aspect of my hub, but its all good.

      Thanks any how for giving this hub a chance, I liked that video too, I figured it would fit well with the hubs overall theme of success online, and it isn't easy to accomplish such a thing at all, it takes diligence, hard work, smarts, and cunning research skills as a writer today, besides awesome writing skills, communications skills and well the hub told all the rest LOL.

      Cloudexplorer, thank you for publishing this informative hub about online success. You have presented the most relevant information and advice regarding the earning of money online. I am going to add a link to this in a hub I plan to publish soon. Thanks a lot!

      Solid stuff here Mike for anyone thinking about trying to make it online. I would add, unless I missed it, to affiliate yourself in a group of non-competitors for mutual brain picking.

      @pstraubie48, oh yes indeed humility is one of the secrets to true success in life, and not that of a quick one hit winner. I'm also looking to help others up this online success ladder because I care for the likes of all others as well.

      Lets hope many more folks can locate this hub, and follow such a lead, you never know what could become possible unless we try to make it, and make wiser attempts at it all.

      Thanks for your kind words of support, and for sharing with me.

      Thanks @mjkearn, for the cool hub review you gave me, and for sharing that was so thoughtful of you to do. I'm working hard online for others and besides for myself, and this is definitely a way to make it for sure.

      I found the advice about seeking validation in the first video to be quite interesting. I think it really comes down to being passionate about what you want to achieve and not letting anyone discourage you.

      One of the most powerful things you said was in the one comment..." I shall remain humble..." That will keep things in perspective and keep you focused.

      Being willing to stick with it when the going gets tough keeps you plugging away. This is a whole world of opportunity for those who are just starting out. I am writing on here because I did not have time to write when I was working. But I would encourage others to use this great resource to launch their careers. Thanks for sharing. Sending Angels to you...:) ps

      Hi Cloud

      Fabulous, informative and encouraging article. Great links and advice for all, especially for those of us who are determined and seriously trying.

      Thanks for writing and for sharing. It truly is a pleasure to follow you.

      Voted up, ticked and shared.

      Bill success truly is what we make of it, you and I both understand such a premise today and giving up is the direct opposite to that of success today, and everyday.

      Focus is the primer and keying in on what is essential for such success is primary, and as Tyler Perry stated up there in his tips on success, we must remain focused on the prize, no matter what, no matter who may try to deter us, or try to throw us off course from achieving our goals in life, online or off.

      I am an online success today, but I shall remain humble in what I have achieved and to not cut off my chances to attain even more, and this is one of the magical factors out of them all in the formula if one does indeed exist for that of true success. Chaos theory is the other in my honest opinion, seed planting is the other.

      Thanks bro for taking the time to share with me, oh and sharing is definitely one of the greatest factors as well. Enjoy your day bro!

      You speak the truth, Mike. In fact, I have a hub for tomorrow that basically says the same thing about not give up! If you want it bad enough then work for it.

      I know you don't give you; we both know I don't. We are going to find a way, buddy. The Web is waiting for us, and all we have to do is walk through the door that is open for us.

      Great information but more than that, a great source of inspiration for those who are struggling.

      Well done as always, buddy!
