Internet Marketing Tips – Keeping Your Options Open
One thing I have learned from my five years of Internet marketing (as of this writing) is that you can’t set things in stone. You have to be open to new things. The Internet changes so much that if you get yourself stuck in a rut, you might find many things simply passing you by. This article isn’t going to deal with theory. It is going to give you some actual examples of my own life where I kept my options open and because of that, my income increased incredibly.
My first big breakthrough came when I was doing nothing but affiliate marketing. I was doing okay, but I realized that my income wasn’t really increasing the way I would have liked. I knew there was something missing. Then one day I got an email from a friend of mine who knew I was frustrated. He asked if he could call me and asked for my number. I figured I had nothing to lose so I gave it to him. Long story short, he told me that if I wanted to get to the next level as a marketer, I had to create my own products. So I did. My income quadrupled that year.
My second big breakthrough came when I was told by yet another friend of mine to begin to frequent a particular forum. He said it was the top one on the Internet and if I acted professionally while I was there and really helped people with the knowledge that I had, they would react in kind. Well, my income for that year more than doubled from my previous year, mostly because of the friendships I made at this forum. I would have never even considered hanging out at a forum to improve my business. That would have been a big mistake.
I am not venturing into my next thing. I have stumbled upon a business model that many people have found to be extremely profitable if worked at the right way. With my knowledge of Internet marketing, I know I can make this business model work and add yet another five figures to my monthly income without putting too much time into it. Had my mind not been open to the possibility of doing something different, I would have simply ignored this opportunity.
The point is, had I not recognized opportunity each step along the way, I’d probably be making the same amount of money I was making 5 years ago and not getting anywhere. Instead, by keeping my options open, I am earning a six figure income and on my way to being financially independent.
Keep your options open…You never know what’s going to land in your lap.
To YOUR Success,
