I didn’t realize until a few moments ago that I’ve been writing this blog for 3 years now. It’s kind of fitting that this is the 150th post that I’ve made. So I thought it would be worthwhile to reflect on what has changed in the past 3 years or what hasn’t.
The obvious thing thats changed personally is that financially I am much more comfortable than I was 3 years ago. Lifestyle wise I have a much better lifestyle and overall I am happier. I am glad to see that in 3 years I haven’t “sold out” and still like to ruffle a few feathers if I don’t like a product or can see an obvious scam. I am also happy that I managed to keep away from the you promote my product and i’ll promote your product circle jerk that we see the big name gurus’s do on a monthly basis.
In the world of IM things have changed massively, in 2006 we were shocked when a product sold for $97 now $1997 seems to be relatively commonplace. On a more negative side the same old crap is still being spouted in public forums don’t believe half of what you are told and treat the other half with a pinch of salt. There are some excellent marketers out there who are honest and genuinely care about their customers, if you find a good one stick with them!
Finally I thought I’d repost one of the first posts I made back in August 2006. Sadly this still happens. So guys and gals, as a 3rd birthday present to me…just get out there and take action.. I did and I’ve never looked back!!!
This post comes as a result of a total frustration.. There were these 2 adsense publishers lets call them Tweedledum and Tweedledee.
Now tweedledum was a cautious type and wanted to analyse everything before he did anything so he read everything he could and then asked questions and when people answered his questions he asked more..and more..and more and after a month he discovered that he hadn’t acutally made any sites so he went out and bought every tool he saw reccomended and built a load of sites comfortable in the knowledege that he knew what he was doing.
Tweedledee on the other hand was very hands on he read a few posts and tried to build a few sites which didn’t really work very well , so he read a bit more asked a few questions and worked out what he did wrong and started again at the end of the month he had build lots of sites but like Tweedledum he hadn’t earned any money . But he too was confident that he had the knowledge he needed.
The very next month all Tweedledees hard work came to fruition and with just a few tweaks his sites started to earn him money and as he knew what he was trying to do he was able to invest in the right tools to help increase his income.
What of Tweedledum well he did build some sites but as he was using the same tools as everyone else he didn’t make any money so he blamed everyone who had answered his questions for not helping him enough and he was last seen trying network marketing…
There is a moral to this story!!
What type of publisher are you!…have a nice weekend…(or whats left of it)
