If you want a home based business or a work at home job, chances are you have done a lot of searching on the internet. Let's face it, the internet is the place to be if you want to make money. You have, most likely, read about many different opportunities. You have followed the words and suggestions of some of the web gurus.
You have looked at this internet marketing strategy and that affiliate marketing opportunity. Maybe you have gotten confused. You have wondered to yourself, "is this legitimate or just another scam?" Can I really make money on the internet? The answer to your questions is yes and no.
On the internet, just as in the physical world, there is a bit of everything. There are many choices and many different people looking for choices. There are many types of people surfing the net in search of opportunities.
They are always looking for that perfect, just right, magical, special opportunity. For example, there are the "window shoppers". The look at every new opportunity, read all the websites, read the reviews, they have them all bookmarked. Maybe they have gone to websites many times.
Maybe they have even gone through the order process, just to see how it works. This person hopes and wants but will never take that final step. There is also the info junkie. This person wants and hopes and, in fact, takes action. The info junkie gets everything hoping it will make him rich. More times than not, this person suffers from paralysis of analysis.
Reading, assessing, double checking, and wants to know everything to the infinite detail before actually doing the business. They want to know everything first from the books and DVD's piled around doing nothing but collecting dust. Next, there is the "jack of all trades". This person jumps at every opportunity to make money.
Their inbox is full of emails from all the new and different ways to make money online. They have so many bookmarks and favorites they forget which are which. The grass is always greener on the other strategy. These people know a little bit about everything when it comes to internet marketing. They go to forums and make posts as an "expert". It is too bad.
This person might be able to succeed but they have no time to get good at anything because they are spending all their time trying to manage excess. I once saw a cartoon, in which, a man was hunting a rabbit. It was a very windy day as the two were running through the forest. I theatrical transport truck was driving along a road in the forest and hit a bump. The rear doors flew open and many, many hats blew out the back and into the trees. From time to time one of the many hats would land on the head of the man.
He would than take on the personality of the hat, such as a policeman, a soldier, a postman. My point in all this is that strategies of many successful entrepreneurs are judged negatively because someone can't make money with it. I say money can be made with most all of them. The entrepreneurs shares experiences and knowledge that worked for him or her. What they can't foresee when writing is the wildcard or the YOU-factor. There is no way for them to plug you into their formula.
If you are a window shopper who researches but never takes action you will never succeed. If you are an info junkie who buys the books and keeps reading and reading but never take action, you will never succeed. If you are a jack of all trades and never commit to one strategy or niche you will have problems succeeding. YOU are the main factor that determines if a strategy will make you money or not. I am sure you have heard of Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods, arguably the best in the fields.
They love what they do and strove to be the best. Someone taught them how to play what they do. They took it from there. Many people learn to do the same things but some take it and excel. The point is that with Michael Jordan it didn't matte which basketball he used or which court he was playing on, he succeeded.
Tiger Woods is the best in golf, no matter what clubs he is using or which course he is on. What makes them the best is what is inside them. The YOU-factor. You are what make the difference with an internet marketing strategy.
If you have what it takes you can make anything work. You just must decide which the one for you is. You must decide which strategy excites you. You must make a decision, commit to it, and work it with persistent and consistent desire.
These same principles apply whether you are starting an internet business or a conventional brick and mortar business. You take your dream; mix it with a burning desire, and then top it off with action and you are bound to succeed.
