In order to make money online, you have to sell something. That may seem like a “duh” statement, but not so fast my friend! I’ve seen hundreds and hundreds of people in this market who want nothing more than to make a lot of money online… and these same people have been “trying” to make money online for years now! And, even after many years of trying, they STILL do not have one thing they consistently sell!
Instead, they continue to float… drift… coast… and bounce. They float/bounce from one “idea” to the next “idea” for making money. They are like a kid in a candy store… always looking, wanting and buying the next gizmo or appealing “business opportunity” out there. They are seduced by the sales video or sales letter and they rip out their credit card and purchase. NEVER… ever… do they ever, just focus on selling something. And, if you are not actively and consistently selling “something” then you are not making any money online.
To me, the word “marketing” is a fancy word for sales. I know it means more than just nasty old “salesmanship” but really… to me… it’s sales. Marketing = sales. Yet, most never sell anything at all. They HATE sales, hate being sold, hate salespeople, etc. They want nothing to do with “sales”, yet they call themselves “marketers”. Well, ok then. In order to make money, you have to consistently and actively “sell”… err… “market” something.
What to sell… err… market?
Well, I’d say you have two choices really. You can sell your own product(s)… or you can sell other people’s products as an affiliate and earn commissions. That pretty much narrows it down huh? So, either start creating your own products to sell… or start finding affiliate offers to sell… then get busy SELLING! That’s what brings the bacon home… selling stuff!
So the next time you get a little frustrated with your income, or progress towards making yourself wealth online, ask yourself the question, “What am I actively selling consistently?” and I believe you’ll have your answer or pathway to achievement.
