Marketers! 1 Thing Will Make You Go Broke!
The #1 thing that makes most marketers go broke is... Buying into all the hype out there, buying into the dream. Just one more product and I’ll make it BIG philosophy. This one thing is called the Shiny Object Syndrome! It hurts. I’ve lost 1,000’s of dollars because of this. I can definitely feel your pain, you’re not the only one out there going through this. The truth of the matter is you don’t need 95% of the products out there. You start to get ahead when you start investing in yourself. When you start getting the right training from someone already successful.
Think about this, if someone is already doing what you want to do, do you think they can teach you how to do it also? Of course…
The problem is listening to people who have NEVER done what they’re preaching online. Just selling the hype to sell. I’ve been online for over 12+ years and seen it all, lost 1,000’s of dollars but yet still make 100’s of thousands of dollars. I’ve partnered, promoted and learned from some of BIGGEST names out there. So I’ve been around the block and then some.
Everyday I see gullible marketers that are new to internet marketing getting sucked into the hype and losing a BUNCH of money quickly. It’s sad, and the REAL truth is, internet marketing does work. I am making a full-time income online, but I did it with the right strategies.
It’s not what you know, or who you know, it’s who know’s YOU. Most marketers think it’s ok, I can get ahead by myself. Yes, true, but to a CERTAIN extent. You will need to partner with other marketers to get your name and your products out there, that’s what drives the BIG results. But, the MOST important thing you need to learn to become a successful marketer is the basics of internet marketing.
What is the basics of internet marketing? You need 3 things…
#1 – You need Traffic. Without traffic, you have no chance of becoming successful in internet marketing. The BIG BOYS pay for traffic because it works. Sure, free traffic does convert, but you’ll be trading most of your time just to generate measly results.
#2 – You need your own email list. You’ve heard it a million times, the money is in the list. And, that still holds true till this day. The money is in your own opt-in list and the opt-in list of others that will promote for you.
#3 – You need a high converting product. Here’s the good part, if you don’t already have your own product, that’s where affiliate marketing comes in where you get paid a commission just promoting. However, you need the right affiliate product, one that is proven to convert and make sales.
That is the basics to internet marketing success. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Let me ask you a question.
- Do you have your own squeeze page?
- Have a source where you get targeted traffic that buy?
- Do you have your own product or a source for high converting affiliate products?
If you answered no, then this is the missing piece to the puzzle friend, it’s that simple – yet still many marketers will continue to sell you the dream of easy riches pushing a few buttons and make a killing. Sorry, but it doesn’t work that way, never did and never will.
Ofcourse work is required, as with all businesses. If you don’t want to do the work, then internet marketing is NOT for you. But, the principle is not just hard work, as you’ve heard it a million times, it’s working smarter and maximizing your time to bring in the most amount of profits.
As we wind down to the end of the year here soon, think to yourself. Do I have these 3 basic components to creating a successful business?
If not, this should be your #1 concern. Forgot social media, forget writing 100’s of articles a day, forget the search engines and other traffic methods that don’t work.
Here’s what REALLY works…
- Find a high converting product for free…
- Create a squeeze page around this product…
- Add couple follow up emails with affiliate products on the back-end.
- Drive traffic to this squeeze page which in-turn will build your list and make you sales on the back-end.
- Purchase some Solo Email Ads to keep buyer traffic flowing.
- Purchase some PPC traffic from Google Ads and/or Microsoft Ads.
- Rinse and repeat all over again, it becomes easier as you go along and you start to leverage your money and make good profits to keep your business running.
Then, you can either create your own product or have a professional create one for you. Launch it on JvZoo, ClickBank or Warrior Plus, rinse and repeat.
That’s how simple a real money making business can be. That’s it. Cut out all the clutter you get on a regular basis and focus on this only. Then, once you are getting REAL results, come back and let me know of your progress. Stay away from the shiny objects and focus on your business.
If I had to recommend a system that will help you get this done from day 1, it would be this. There is only about 10 – 20 products I can comfortably introduce to my mom and not feel bad about it because I know it works, and this is one of the biggest and baddest money makers on my list.
It emphasizes all of the principles I’ve showed you above. Getting Traffic to your Squeeze Pages, building your email list and making real sales on the back-end. In-fact, everything is already created for you, all you have to do is simply, upload these templates to your web host and drive traffic using solo ads, THAT’s it.
I share this with you because I do run a business online also, I know how tough it can be and when I first started I didn’t have this type of knowledge to move me forward. I was stuck for years trying to make it work, pouring my blood, sweat and literally tears into this, so I know what it’s like grinding against the grain and trying to make something work.
The problem with this is, Insanity is described as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Once you do the right thing in the 1st place, you can do it over and over, when it’s WORKING for you, not the other way around.
I hope you enjoyed this, and take this information into consideration. Not many people online care about wether you succeed or not. I do because you are a real breathing hard working human being just like I am, and when you succeed I succeed also having the peace of mind knowing I’ve helped others.
