Do You Really Want To Succeed?

This should be the first question everyone should ask themselves before they start any venture. If your heart isn't in it then you will surely fail. Many people start projects without knowing why they are getting into it. Probably they were influenced by friends or family and it wasn't their choice to begin with. If it's something that YOU want to do then success should come easy.

Well, success never comes easy. There are setbacks, cutbacks and obstacles in your path. But all that is just life testing you to see if the goal is what you really want to achieve. If it's not for you then you will give up at the first sight of defeat. Know what it is that drives you. What are you most passionate about? Make a list of all your favorite hobbies and activities and start from there. Once you find something that clicks, picture yourself being already successful at it.

A lot of people are afraid of success. They feel that they aren't worthy of their heart's desire for some reason. There's nothing wrong with being humble but in order to be a big shot you have to think like one. Just don't step on anyone else's toes on your way up because they are the same people you're going to face on your way back down. Nobody made it to the top all on their own.

It's Not About The Money

We are living in a world where many people are trapped in the rat race dealing with the hustle and bustle. We have to work, work, work just to barely get by. In this process, some people become selfist and greedy and will do anything just to get a buck. But life isn't supposed to be about just making money. Life is supposed to be a precious experience. I don't know about your beliefs but I believe that we only get one life and when you're gone, that's it. It would suck that the only thing you did in your life was working for the dollar.

To me, life isn't about making money. Yes, money is a necessity in life and we all need it to survive. Food, clothing and shelter are your three basic needs. But to be honest, I don't care about money. I'd rather spend time with the people I love than to worry about how I'm going to pay the bills. I feel like I have more money than I really need and with this attitude, money just comes to me. And the money that comes my way, some of it I just give away. When I do this, more and more money just comes to me. It's like I'm a money magnet.

When you feel like you don't need it, it will come to you. If you feel like you need it, it will avoid you. It's one of the laws of attraction. It's not about the money. It's about helping others succeed. When you help others succeed, you succeed.

Is Internet Marketing Fun?

When people ask me what I do for a living I tell them that I'm an internet marketer. Most people would reply with a "Wow! That's cool." But in reality, they don't know what it all entails. I personally like what I do because I like to work alone and I have autonomy. There are pros and cons to everything in life and internet marketing is no exception.

So is internet marketing fun? To me it's work. But it's work that I enjoy doing. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's fun. I had some fun jobs in my life. Internet marketing however is more like a journey and some days the work involved can be a bit tedious. I guess when you start making money with it, then it be fun. But to me it's all about making something actually happen. The moment when you find something that works is when you feel you've accomplished something. In that case I would say that internet marketing is fun. But on the other hand, it's all how you look at it. For some people it's not so fun. Wasting money and time on products that don't bring results is not fun at all. But you can't win all the time. You have to lose in order to win. Learn from your mistakes and keep trying at it and you'll end up with a winner.

Facebook and SEO

I honestly don't have any idea why but Facebook is a whole lot easier and faster to get your website ranked high in the top search engines. For a regular website, it would take quite some time to get indexed and ranked, depending on your backlinks, content, quality and niche. But using Facebook as your platform can not only bring tons of visitors to your website but help your website get ranked.

If you have a lot of likes and followers, your Facebook page will show up in the search engines for the keywords you are using to optimize it. Since everyone is on Facebook these days, more than likely they will click on a Facebook page that has a product or a service they are looking for by using certain keywords to search it. In the world of internet marketing, especially SEO, there is so much competition. Create a Facebook fan page for your product, gain a lot of likes and followers and your page will be on the first page of the search engines. More than likely you'll be the only one on the first page with a Facebook page and people will click on it rather than any website.

How To Put Your Online Business On Autopilot

The best way to make money online is to have money coming in automatically. Passive income is surely the best income. But the only way for that to happen is to constantly and regularly add content for your followers, fans and readers. Whether you have social networks or a blog, the key is to write as much articles as you can and post to your social networks often.

The more you do this, overtime your followers increase and so does your customers. Some days I don't even do any work and I still get customers. Just this past Labor Day weekend, I did nothing. I took the whole weekend off including the following holiday and I had customers. I wake up in the morning and have new subscribers and sales and I didn't even do anything. Well, I DID do something but it was a lot of work and effort I did weeks prior. Everything just comes automatically. Somehow and someway, people find my blog and my website and I still work on it everyday. The more you put into it, the more you get out of it.

Hard work pays off in the long run. So go ahead and get your product out there by writing, posting, tweeting or whatever it is to get it out. If you're just starting out now, it will take some time. But within a few months you will be a powerhouse and can afford to just take a day off or two.

Do It Even When You Don't Feel Like It

We live in a world where people make decisions based on their moods and emotions. People only do things because they just feel like it. When they don't feel like it, they don't do it. But that kind of mentality can hurt your business in the long run. Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do, even when you don't feel like doing it.

The number one factor of success is persistence. You have to get in the habit of doing whatever it is your doing to get to the top and you have to do it on a regular basis. The more you do it, the more you form the habit of doing it. Sometimes I don't even feel like posting a new article on my blog or tweeting or posting to Facebook. But I do it anyway because time is precious and I don't want to waste it. Besides, you never know who is reading what and I could lose out on another customer if I don't take action.

The most successful people in the world doesn't make decisions based on their emotions and moods. They work on their projects persistently and they work even when they don't feel like working. We all wish for a life where we can just sit on the couch and watch TV all day and just have boatloads of money come to you. But in the real world, you have to take action and you have to do it constantly.

Is Blogging Dead?

I remember a very long time ago when the blog was born, it was created for a way for people to express ideas, exchange information, form opinions about current events and for others, to keep a journal. It's original purpose wasn't to promote a product or a service. But as time passed on, the blog became one of the ultimate platforms to actually make money online. Some marketers nowadays think that blogging is old hat and a waste of time. But in fact, not only is a new blog being created every minute, bloggers are making money with them every second.

Most of the time when you search for something on Google, Yahoo, Bing or whatever search engine you use, it's usually on a blog that you might find what you're looking for. Free platforms like Blogger and Wordpress has made it very simple for anyone to create a blog, write regular fresh content and promote products. Almost everyone nowadays has one. Especially internet marketers. Blogging may be old hat but it's a hat that never wears out.

The most effective way to utilize your blog is first find something to write about. It may be something that you are passionate about or a hobby. Something that you are very good at. And just write about it everyday or whenever you can. The key here is CONTENT. Search engines love fresh content and the more fresh content you add on a regular basis, the higher your blog gets ranked.
