However, I can give you some advice that should be able to save you a lot of money, when it comes to buying products online.
Let me ask you this – do you have a business plan? If you’re trying to make money online, it’s important that you treat your efforts like a business. Otherwise, it’s a hobby. And people rarely get rich off of hobbies.
Alright, so if you don’t have a business plan, then you need to create one. Why? Well, if you don’t know where you’re going, it doesn’t matter how you get there. In other words, all kinds of different courses on internet marketing are going to appeal to you.
The problem is, you’re unlikely to stay focused on any one of them, because you don’t have a final destination. This is your worst enemy.
The first thing you need to do is sit down and ask yourself this -where would I like my online business to be in five years? Come up with how much money you’d like to make, and also what you’ll do to make it.
Then come up with an idea of where you’d like to be 3 years from now. Then one year from now. Then 6 months from now.
Okay, so now that you have your 6 month plan, it’s really easy to determine if the next hot internet marketing course is right for you. Just ask yourself this question – will this course help me get closer to my business goals, or will it just distract me? Yep, it’s that easy.
Now, I’m sure you’re begging the question – if it’s that easy, how come nobody does it? Well think about it – how sexy is it for these big gurus to market goal setting and business planning. It’s much more sexy to talk about the latest, neatest online tricks and tactics.
That’s why the important stuff gets glossed over. But I guarantee that you go to these top marketers and ask to see their business plan, they’ll be able to whip it out and show you in a heartbeat. They do it, and you should do it to if you want to get the results they get.
Then, you will be able to create and sell your own internet marketing course.
To do all of the things we’ve talked about you’re going to have to be able to stay focused. To check out one of the few full guides out there on staying focused as it relates to your internet marketing business, take a look at IM Focused.
