Internet Marketing – This is NOT a Spectator Sport

This is not a spectator SportI was creating a post in WordPress Goldmine this morning about some Masterclasses i’ll be running over the next few months and I wrote on the initial post. That I expected people who joined to actually take part as “This Is Not A Spectator Sport” as soon as I wrote that line I knew that I would be writing a blog post about it today.

How many products have you bought and read and not even tried to implement?

How many times have you read something and thought Wow thats good ….and not done anything?


Killing It With Kindle

If you read last weeks post titled Fight Fight Fight and read the comments you’ll have seen people saying that they were making money with kindle publishing what you won’t have seen is the related thread in WordPress Goldmine which is well over 100 posts long where people discuss how they are making money. One of our members sits down each day and writes 4000 – 8000 words which has enabled him to build a 4 figure income in the past 2 months from kindle,  why?

Because he realises that kindle publishing is not a spectator sport. You have to take part to make money

Doing The Do

Paul Forcey attended the 1kaday seminar in las Vegas last weekend and in his report about it he mentions one of the speakers (Mario Brown I think) who worked everyday until he generated $4000 a month, Then he hustled even harder until he got to $10,000 a month.

I could sit here everyday looking at Facebook and playing Civilisation V and listening to podcasts and I wouldn’t make a single cent. But I know that by writing blog posts , posting daily tips to my Facebook page and promoting my products and researching new products I can make money.

 Action = Results

I think you get the idea, I know people who I met 7 years ago who wanted to make money online and they still haven’t managed to make a full-time income from it, yet I’ve met people who started 6 months ago who have made $10,000 in the past month.

I have a really good friend here in spain who is not into IM 99.9% of you reading this will know more about Internet Marketing.  He runs a holiday rental company and recently built a website to list the properties. A few months back he was sat at a table with myself and a few of my IM friends having a beer and we were talking about article marketing and driving traffic using articles. He went home and that weekend wrote a series of articles about local landmarks, night clubs and about what to do on holiday here and posted them on his site. Many of those now rank number one in google and drive traffic to his rentals.  He’s having one of his busiest years.

Why, because he got out of the grandstand and got into the game.

    I am glad you liked the audio I did of the seminar. I looked at my notes and it would make a great word cloud.
    Hustle, Business,Partnerships, Complimentary Skills, work, hard work..

    They also talked about Money.. Paying off your house, retiring early, enjoying life.

    But to do that you have to work, hard and smart..

    Where is that magic button

    2012 has been the single greatest learning year of my life.

    I’ve learned why my originally business started failing four years ago. I’ve learned what it takes to do it right. I’ve methodically moved through different models (though more publicly than I would have liked – it’s been embarrassing and humbling at times), and now I finally have a business plan in place that caters to my strengths and fully supports how I want to give of myself to the world.

    It hasn’t been easy. Another lesson learned was the fact that I was very luck for a very long time. As a result, I didn’t have to work very hard, and the level of dedication it takes in 2012 was a lesson 4 years in the making.

    Though it’s taken 8 months longer than I wanted or intended, I now fully “get” the level of commitment it takes to get off the ground and start to soar. The amazing people at WordPress Goldmine helped me see and learn these things, and I’m eternally grateful to the people who have helped, and to Mark for providing the platform.

    Build a plan. Execute the plan. It sounds so simple. But human nature proves that it isn’t. Be the exception. Get to work! :)

    Whoooo that hurt. Thats sooo my spectating I am getting round it by doing at least a 1000 words a night on one of two projects I have at the moment.

    They knowledge is power however Mark the real kicker is consistent working of that knowledge

    I can relate to this post too well. I am constantly reminding myself to just get in there and do it. Then I slide into the spectating for a while and go through the cycle again.

    Today I wrote 2 articles and spent a great deal of time trying to figure out whether I could get an exit popup plugin that I use to work with only 1 dialog. Turns out it already works find in IE and Chrome, doesn’t work at all in Opera and only has the bizarre behaviour in FireFox and there isn’t a way around it. But at least I was in the trenches for a couple hours today. Felt good!

    Then I stumbled on your post. 4000 to 8000 words a day? Now I hang my head in shame 8=)

    That would be great if I could hit that mark. I did about 1200 today. Just need to be consistent with it. I might have hit 2000 if I didn’t have to mess around with the plugin.

    I have just published a post about taking inspiration from the Olympic athletes. What some of them put themselves through to get there is insane. It makes it sound ridiculous to say that you struggle to write an article.

    If you come up with a product that gets people to take action consistently, I’ll be the first in line to buy it.

    Rich, All the Olympic Athletes were an inspiration, just to be there was an achievement, I just wished that I had that sort of inspiration 35 years ago
