Well, I wanted to write about something today that is not related to internet marketing, yet has everything to do with it. What did I just say?
Well, first I want to thank all of my regular readers who come here to honestly try and learn how to be successful rather then just spamming my blog (those don’t get published). I appreciate you, and I hope that you are taking action on whatever it is that you are set out to do. Whether it be Clickbank, physical products, Adsense, or creating your own product, the truth of the matter is it will never happen for you if you don’t start right now, and make it happen.
The reality is, it’s work (don’t let anyone tell you it’s not), takes a lot of time when you first get started, and can be extremely frustrating at times, making you feel discouraged, and like giving up. Why does that happen? Because it is work that’s why. But the real problem comes in when there are so many people telling you what to do that you feel like your brain is going to explode with information that you have no idea what to do with.Is the information even accurate? Are they just trying to get you to click their affiliate link or buy their product?
If you look around on my site, you will see that I have not recommended a paid product related to internet marketing (other than the CTR Theme) since I purchased 3 products back in February and March of 2011. If you go to my Affiliate Product Reviews category, you will see that there is no affiliate link in any of the 3 reviews I made in February and March of 2011, and there never has been. Why? Because they were junk, and I would never recommend a product if I did not feel it would help my readers.
With that said, I want to share a personal milestone that has been a long time coming.
Although I now make more online than I make working at my full time job, I am not quitting my job just yet. What I am doing is going down to part time. Instead of working 5 days/wk, 8 hours/day, I have reduced my week down to 3 days at my job. I know that this may seem silly to many of you, but to me the reality has not really sunk in just yet, and I want to be very comfortable with my monthly earnings before I actually “Fire my Boss”.
With the 2 extra days per week, while my husband is at work and the kids are at school, what do you think I am going to be doing?
- Watching soap operas
- Buying more junk affiliate products
- Playing on Facebook
- Spending the day at the mall
- Building niche websites
You got it! I am going to be building more websites, and increasing my monthly earnings so that I can quit my job for good, and know that I will be ok, even on a bad month.
My question for you is, what are you going to do after you read this post?
- Go out with your friends
- Play on Facebook
- Read emails
- Buy more junk affiliate marketing products
- Do keyword research, buy a domain name, write some articles, and build a niche website
It’s your future, so you decide, but I would love nothing more than for all of you to answer #5. That is where it’s at guys. You don’t have to build sites forever, build them for a few months, get a steady amount of income coming in from Adsense, then venture off into something else that you feel comfortable doing.
If you need a reminder of how quickly you can make money with Adsense, read this post!
If you do take me up, and start #5, please leave me a comment. I would love to root you on!
