If you've been doing internet marketing for even a short amount of time, you've probably wondered to yourself at some point whether people are really making money online or are all the programs, products, courses, and training a bunch of hype to get your money. Well, in some cases, it is a hype.
But, the fact is, there really are people making money online. Some are making a little. Some are making a lot! And some are making money at every level in between. The key for the highly successful internet marketers is that in the early stages, they stayed focused on growing their business and dedicated time to it every day. And if they ever take a day off, they are back after their goal that much harder the next day striving to achieve online marketing success.
Now, I'm not going to minimize the benefit of having a system or program that maps the action steps out for you. That can be a huge help. The right system or program could catapult your business very quickly. But without making your internet marketing business a majority priority of each day, your progress could be so slow you won't notice any and eventually, like so many people before you, you'll give up. You'll quit. No system can make you stay focused and dedicated to your goal.
Here's the hard part. You may have to give up certain big activities to squeeze in working on your internet business. Difficult choices to be sure. Or, you may just need to eliminate the time wasters from your day. You know the sort of things I mean... Flitting hours away watching TV, mindlessly playing in social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and yapping with friends on your phone. It's extremely easy to allow these activities to eat up hours of our time on a daily basis.
How can you deal with these time sucker activities? Simple. Set a rule for yourself that makes these activities a reward for finishing your internet marketing actions of the day. In other words, if you don't complete your internet marketing business actions, you can't use the TV, social media or the phone.
Ask Yourself: How bad do you want to achieve online marketing success with your business? Bad enough to keep the focus on your goal, every day? Bad enough to develop the discipline to work on your business, every day?
