If you want to have an online business, you have to learn internet marketing.  Why should you want an online business?

Here are the benefits of a home business versus a brick and mortar business.

  • Low Cost – The cost is extremely low for a business startup.  No mortgage or rent.  No utilities  No furnishings.  No Salaries.  The cost of advertising is negligent.
  • 24/7 – Where can you have a business that’s open 24/7?  Well, there’s Walmart, but you can’t run that single handed.
  • BE YOUR OWN BOSS – to me this should be number 1.  Is it scary for some people.    But if you work hard for a living wouldn’t you rather work hard for yourself and your financial future?
  • Flexibility – No more 8 – 5 or midnights or weekends.  That is unless you want to.  I am an early morning person and my best time starts at 5.  By noon, I am done, I want to be in the pool.
  • Equal Opportunity – This one is great.  It doesn’t matter what race you are, how old you are, if you are cross-eyed, 7 feet tall, or what country you are from.    It doesn’t matter.  All that matters is your determination.
  • Free Ads – Don’t we all love Free?
  • Sell Anything – Let’s face it.  You can sell anything on the internet.  With the internet, the individual levels the playing field with the big giants of retail.  And sometimes we get ahead.  Have you noticed how even the big companies are on Facebook and twitter?
  • No recession online – Online sales continue to rise.  It is advantageous for people to shop online.  Why?  Competitive prices, wider selection, never leave their armchair, save on gas.
  • Internet Marketing strategies are simple to learn with great training.   Learn to use the existing tools.  A good internet marketing tool expedites your success.

With these benefits to online selling, what’s stopping you today?

Implement the four characteristics of success and create financial freedom.

  • Desire to change
  • Willingness to learn
  • Make no excuses
  • Take action  If you don’t take that first step, right, wrong,or indifferent, you don’t move forward.

Wishing you all the best in everything.

I was listening to the radio in the car this morning.  And on the station, the DJ was interviewing a musician about his latest song.  They were accepting phone callers.

A lady came on and wanted to compliment the artist on his song, but then went on to tell him that her niece knew him.  Naturally, the singer wanted to know the niece’s name.  And so the caller supplied the name and there was a this long pause and he said, “ I don’t mean to sound insincere, but I do not recognize her name.  The caller said that her niece had received a text message from him and so the call went back and forth, yes you did, no I didn’t, that kind of thing.

Finally, the singer told the caller that he would stay on the show for an extra five minutes, to allow the niece to text or call him, and he would apologize on the air for not recognizing the name.

I listened for a long time and they never came back on, so I am assuming that the caller was misinformed about her niece’s association.

I have two points to this story….

  • People do not need to be name-droppers to be important.  The caller’s niece evidently thought she had to tell her aunt this information to elevate her status with the aunt.  This seems to be a prevalent theme in this country, that you are who you know.

I refuse to believe that.  I believe it is what you know and what you do with that knowledge.  Can you learn from your associations?  Absolutely, yes.  It is vital to associate yourself with individuals who truly have your best interests at heart and make you reach upward.  Great training from professionals in your chosen area of study can always boost your endeavors and self-confidence.

  • The second point is this.  Don’t believe everything you hear!  Always consider your sources reliability.  I cannot say this enough.  As internet marketers, we hear all kinds of exaggerated stories about fast accumulation of wealth and how easy it is.  It is very important to consider the source.  Do the research.

I was so very fortunate to attend a seminar at which General Colin Powell was speaking.  I have been a big fan for many years and felt privileged to get to hear him (and yes, I was in the nosebleed section).

General Powell said this about effective leadership, “Empower the troops with Goals and a Sense of Purpose.  Take care of the troops.”  He also said, “ Inspire someone to achieve the purpose and they will be self-motivated.  General Powell’s statement resonates as truth with me.  As a trainer in my current and past chosen careers, I care for and guide those I am responsible for until they are able to fly on their own.  .

In conclusion:

  • Associate yourself with someone who believes that your success is as important as his or her own.
  • Look for mentors who provide true value and answer your questions.
  • Do the research – validate.  Take the time to watch and listen.
  • Work hard for what you want.  Learn, apply, grow, learn again.

Your success is dependent upon YOU.  We are fortunate in internet marketing to be able to learn from many talented individuals:  Perry Marshall: Google Adwords, Mike Dillard: Magnetic Sponsoring, Omar Martin, Brian Finale to just name a few.

However, it is this acquired knowledge  combined with your personality and skills that is going to provide a WIN-WIN.  And when you are at the top, remember to give a helping hand.  Always pay it forward online.

Wishing you all the success, wherever you want it.
