Most internet marketing experts would have all these 3 component in place when they launched a product, or start an internet business.

During my first year, I knew nothing of this sort, and like everyone else, I just want to see money coming in and just put together a product and started selling it.

Did my product sell? Yes! In fact, it did pretty well, that it's giving me residual income each and every month. And after 18 months now, it's still giving me constant sales …

Month after month!

So based on your strategies, put them under main and sub marketing strategies.

Then create a column for Strength, Passion and Confidence. After that, what you want is to give each one a score, as shown.

1 being the lowest, and 10 being the highest score.

Here's some questions to help you better score them.

Strength:

What are my strengths?

Are my strengths able to help me to complete this task easier?

Who else do I need help from to complete this task?

Passion:

Am I passion about doing this?

If after 6 months and I did not make a single cent from this strategy, will I still be doing it?

Confidence:

How confidence will I follow through for this entire strategy?

Do I have any knowledge or experience on this?

Do I have anyone who I can always count on to ask for advice or help?

Hope these questions will help you to score better for one one.

After you have done the scoring system, add up all the numbers and by then, I'm sure you'll know the answer yourself in your heart.

If in any case, you have a tied, then it's totally up to you to choose which one you prefer better.

Most importantly, always remember my internet marketing tip, be Focus! Since this may be your first project or business, focus on one, do it well, learn the ropes, then do more later …
