The Purpose Of This Website
The purpose of this website is to share information about using the internet as a marketing tool to build an online business.
When I started online, I thought it would be a nice short term gig to make a bit of extra cash while working in my day “job”. That was 12 years ago. Along the way, I had early failures and successes, got hooked, and I’m still here!
It is a cliche these days to say that knowledge is power. I like to think of knowledge as the fuel that drives us to take action to get the results we desire.
Insight: There is a gap between learning and being able to do something. These are two different things. To close the gap, always apply and practice what you learn and continue to take consistent action.
I know firsthand that the right training, products and services can save countless hours of wasted time and frustration and make life easier for website owners and marketers.
Check out my No. 1 Recommendation – the place and people that set me on the path to success. You don’t have to do this alone.
Whatever your age, background or level of experience, I hope that the marketing information, tips and insights on this site will help you to achieve your goals and dreams.
Insight: Money is an effect of creating and delivering value to others. Putting an ad in front of people is the last step, not the first step, in getting sales and signups.
A Business Website For Long Term Success
It is possible to make a little extra money via the internet without having your own website, however, the chances for success increase considerably when you take the extra step of buying your own domain name (around $14 yearly). The website becomes your piece of cyber real estate, where you can control the scope and scale of your business.
These days you don’t need to be a web designer to get a functional and beautiful website up and running as long as you can get proper training and receive constructive feedback, help and support.
Actually the site doesn’t have to be beautiful. I have a friend whose first website looked awful, but that didn’t stop him from making a lot of money with it – because he offered something valuable that people wanted.
Making a decision and taking action are keys to success. The most effective action is ‘inspired’ action, which means wild horses cannot stop you. This does not mean you should wait for inspiration before doing anything.
Making mistakes is part of the process. Sometimes it will feel hard, like pushing an elephant uphill. It’s there to teach you. Be open to the learning experience, continue to improve and you will reach the point of ‘inspired’ action.
When you are taking inspired action, you will know it, because you will be in the flow and the ‘doing’ will feel easy and natural and you will think, “it’s not so hard after all”.
