The subject of succeeding online came up in conversation today. This wasn’t the first time I’ve spoken about this, and it certainly won’t be the last.
It was quite appropriate really. Only the other day somebody showed me a website that was promoting how to make money online and succeed with building an online business run by somebody here in the North East of England, in fact County Durham, the same area I’m in.
I was horrified. Yet another so called ‘guru’ and yet another who can’t back his offer through his own knowledge or results. He promises to teach you how to blog. Yet he has a non monetized blog, poorly designed, with an Alexa ranking of something like 3 million or worse. What a great teacher he must be.
Is it any surprise then that 95% of people fail while only 5% of people actually succeed and earn a living online.
What makes what I do different then? Would I be classified as somebody that knows how to succeed online.
I would say that my blog speaks volumes. Take a look at it at Healthy Lifestyles Living . From looks, functionability, how easy it is to navigate your way around, to the amount of traffic and it’s climb back to the Alexa top 100,000 it tells a pretty good story. At the moment its around 130,000. There are no doubts before the end of the year it will have exceeded it previous best position of 80,000.
Its multi faceted monetization methods also go some way to suggest we are successful online. After all we make an income that is better than our previous salaries. We have the income from the following:[ul type=”bullet” style=”1″] [li]Advertising Sales[/li] [li]Life Coaching Sales[/li] [li]Energy Course ebook[/li] [/ul]
All the Missing Pieces online course and partnership is launching in a couple of weeks and we imagine that’s going to be really successful. Through this we’re not only go to teach people how to build a successful business on line we’re also going to give them a platform to do it from. It’s nice when you already have keen individuals on the waiting list.
We will also be launching our next online shop which if it gets anywhere close to our existing one, well our income will certainly raise considerably.
Our existing ecommerce shop can be found at slimexpress.
I will say that you don’t want to use all the monetization methods available to you. Just pick 2-3 to start out, follow a consistent plan of action implementing the necessary action steps weekly.
I believe that the best two forms of income making online come from either an ecommerce shop, or having a monthly fee based membership area. If you read that you’ve just been shown two of the best secrets to making money online. I know that many find affiliate sales is their best way, but although we tinker with this it’s not something we have an interest for. That’s the other secret to success focus on those areas for which you have a true passion.
When you find what’s your highest payoff activity you will be well on your way to success online. Most big achievers online know exactly what they should be focusing their attention on each day. They know what is going to bring in the most revenue and what their strengths are.
If anyone teaches you anything let that be it, what are your highest pay off activities.
What are yours? Comment on that if you’d like.
