If you have ever had any thoughts of trying internet marketing there are some things you need to know. You may have heard how easy it is and how you can work just an hour or two a day and make tons of money or maybe you’ve heard that you can work from anywhere you want; even from the beach if you so desire. Well I am going to bust some of these myths for you right now.
First of all, it may get easy at some point down the road but not until after a lot of hard work. You see, you have to work a lot of long hard hours just learning everything that goes into it. There are so many different parts to it that it is so very easy to get overwhelmed very quickly. Just imagine an engine to a car and all the small parts that make that engine run smooth. It’s like that with an online business. A lot of small parts that make it run smoothly. If just one of those parts break or if you leave one of those parts out then you are in big trouble or you just simply don’t make any money and, face it, isn’t that why we got into the business in the first place?
So it takes a while to learn all the parts and how they work and how they hook up together. It can be very confusing. This part took me about three years to grasp. Some people get it quicker. But then, there’s others that it takes much longer before they understand it. I heard one speaker at a live event that I attended recently say that it took him 8 years before he understood the whole process. But he is now an 8-figure earner. So I guess you can say it is worth it in the end.
I believe I would have learned it much quicker if I had found my last mentor first. He had a way of teaching that was so easy to learn from that it was just a no brainer. He taught with over the shoulder videos that were short and in bite size chunks so you don’t get overwhelmed with too much info at one time. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to start an online business. You will find his link below.
Next, working just an hour or two a day… don’t make me laugh!! I guess it may come to that eventually. Once you have learned enough and you have launched your own product and built your own list and learned how to automate everything (of course, this is after you have learned all the nuts and bolts that I listed above). Yes, then you can possibly get by with working just a couple of hours a day. But you never want to get too lazy with it. You want to stay on top of it. You will want to make sure your products stay out there in front of people and you will want to be sure you stay up with the times by creating new products but you can definitely cut back on the number of hours that you will be working in the beginning. You see, in the beginning, when you first start out, you will be working anywhere between 12 – 16 (possibly more) hours every day if you are serious about your business. Now I understand there are some people that are going to want to…no, let me rephrase that… there are people that are going to have to do this while they are still working their full-time job and, in that case, they have no choice but to work it during their off hours and just do the best they can with whatever hours they can manage to squeeze into it. It will just take them longer to get their business off the ground. But, yes, eventually you can automate eveything and cut your hours way back to just a couple of hours a day. Plus you can always hire virtual assistants to do a lot of the work for you. The key thing with an online business is to LOVE what you are doing. Then it doesn’t feel like work and you don’t mind the amount of time you are putting into it.
Then there is THE LIST!!! Oh yes.. THE LIST!! How many times have you heard it? The money is in…THE LIST?? You must have a HUGE List!! The truth is… You don’t have to have a huge list. You have to have a targeted list. “What is a targeted list?” you may ask. Well I am going to tell you. A targeted list is a list of people that are looking for what you are selling. So when you are building your list you want to keep that in mind. Don’t try to pull in everybody just because they accepted a freebie. If they didn’t show any interest beyond that then chances are you got yourself a tire-kicker and you want to get him off your list ASAP. He’ll just clog up your pipes and slow you down. You can be more successful with a list of 100 targeted buyers than a list of 10,000 tire-kickers.
The next thing I am going to talk about is working from anywhere you want to work from. This one is actually true. I just threw this one in here to see if you were paying attention. No, seriously, it’s because you always hear people talk about how you can work from the beach. Well I don’t know about you but I don’t think I want all that sand in my computer. But, hey, if that doesn’t bother you, then go for it. You can definitely work from the beach.
So here are the facts.
- It can be easy with the right coaching Partnership to Success.
- You can learn how to automate and work just a couple of hours a day
- You can make lots of money doing online businesses
- There are many different ways to earn money from the internet
- You can work from anywhere you choose; even the beach (if you don’t mind the sand) all you need is a wi-fi connection and a computer
I started this because I needed a way to make money that I could handle with my disability and it turned out to be something that I absolutely love doing. It’s true that it may have a few cons but, if you ask me, the pros far out-weigh the cons by a milestone.
