A Positive Mental Attitude

A positive mental attitude is absolutely necessary for your success in any endeavour. If you are sure about the point you want to get to, take the first step and continue with full confidence that you are going to succeed, you will. However, you might be needing to drastically change your mindset, as it will determine whether you will continue until you reach your desired goal, or give up when faced with the numerous obstacles and negative situations you will encounter along the way.

“YOU” – Your Biggest Obstacle

The biggest obstacle you will be faced with is yourself. Very early you could find yourself focusing on your lack while comparing yourself with those who have already achieved big time. As a result, you could end up thinking to yourself, “This thing is just too difficult,” followed by a feeling to quit.
Always remember you have to start from where you are at, make mistakes, learn, and grow along the way. It doesn’t happen quickly or overnight. It takes time, and you must give it time.

The people you might be comparing yourself with also had starting points, and in lots of instances, theirs were much further away from their goals than you are from yours now. Depending on how bad you want something, you will find a way to get it.

One of the many reasons people fail at internet marketing is that they look at those at the top and think to themselves, “I want to be like Tom” and expect that in three months or one year to get to the place that it took Tom ten years to reach. So they go out there and purchase a course or two, and when their unrealistic expectations are not realised within the timeframe they set, they give up. It doesn’t work that way.

There is also something else to consider. Is Tom’s niche (or whatever he’s doing) your passion? Maybe not – and you are in it just for the money. Well if you go into any type of business you don’t have a passion for, but are in only for the money and expect to succeed, you will not. To press through the difficulties and obstacles that all start-up business owners and entrepreneurs face on their way up, you must love what you do with a passion.

Evaluate Yourself

We were all purposefully made by the creator with gifts and talents that we have the responsibility to develop. Unfortunately, for various reasons such as fear of failure and criticism, some people choose to bury instead of developing theirs. If you have a dream or a vision, go after it.

Evaluate yourself to find your strengths and abilities. Most of the time, your strong points will be aligned with your dream or vision. Embrace the preparation process by reading books, taking the appropriate courses at whatever level that may be necessary and give it time and be consistent. Yes, be consistent!

Work on developing your talent and pay no attention to people who tell you that you can’t. They can’t, but you can. Me, for instance: People can say or think what they like about me and what I do, I don’t care. The constitution guaranty them freedom of speech and their opinions have nothing to do with me. Making money or not, I love internet marketing with a passion and no one except the Lord God Almighty and His son Jesus Christ can stand between me and what I do.

The great American author Napoleon Hill once said, “The No. 1 reason people fail in life is that they listen to their friends, family and neighbours” and that is 100% true. Who are you listening to?

I have noticed over the years that the people who limit themselves love to place their limitations on others. Because they can’t, you can’t also. They walk around with boxes to put other people in and labels to place on them. They judge you by your past, your appearance, and your present circumstances.

So they place you in their little box, put a label on it and say to you, “Be realistic and stay in that box, – it’s your box. Don’t be unrealistic and try to get out. You shouldn’t even be thinking outside of that box”. Stay clear of such and be careful with whom you share your aspirations, goals and vision.

Your New Tribe

If there are people around you who continuously try to sow seeds of doubt in your mind about your ability to succeed in reaching your goals, they should be kept at a distance. Not everyone that enters your life is meant to stay there – it’s okay to delete some of them…from your life. Your followers are not always your fans.

Never be afraid of travelling alone. It is sometimes necessary for seeking out YOUR NEW TRIBE – like-minded people who know your worth, encourage, and inspire you.
 
One of the reasons some of those around you respond negatively to your aspirations is because they feel threatened (subconsciously). Your goals scare them by reminding them of what they are not doing and make them uncomfortable. So, while your family, friends, and associates like you, some of them like you just the way you are and not necessarily any better. However, the onus is always on you to stay on track by maintaining a positive mental attitude at all times.
 
It is not possible to not react to a situation, so deal with each that comes at you. It exists – it’s a fact. How you respond to it will determine whether its effect on you is positive or negative. Begin to take responsibility for your thoughts and actions.
 
You cannot control people’s thinking pattern and how they behave towards you, but you can control how you think and act in response. See all opposition and negative criticism as a reason to continue pressing forward rather than as an excuse to quit.

Who Is This Sarah Staar?

 

She is the UK’s leading female internet marketer, a super affiliate, well known for having a reputation as being straightforward, trustworthy, and ethical, and carries the name Sarah Staar.

Sarah started her internet marketing career in 2003 with a website she built for the fun of it. The site was a listing of the best broadband Internet TV stations in the UK of the day. As an affiliate, she soon began selling the products of some of the advertisers on her internet tv stations directory while also using Adsense. Through this site, she began generating a small income of around $600 a month.

Since then she has grown tremendously and is now an SEO consultant for various companies in the UK and a director of a company whose speciality is video production for the internet. She is also the creator of over 30 best-selling internet marketing products and an affiliate marketer generating a monthly income of more than $10,000 a month from affiliate marketing alone.

Regularly conducting coaching classes and workshops for her students on the internet, Sarah teaches the same techniques she uses in her business every day. Her style of teaching is as such that allows everyone at every level to understand the lesson clearly. Her strategies have been tested many times over by numerous newbies who have since gone on to become quite successful in making money online.

Having a track record that speaks louder than words, she is highly qualified to teach in several areas and on various subjects of internet marketing. Her video tutorials are both free and paid ones and are of such high value that it can prove to be quite a challenge distinguishing between the two.

From my own experience with her, I would say she immediately psychologically translates every serious-minded individual that comes in contact with her to a higher level. She does this by revealing simple truths. However, the responsibility lies with us to act upon those truths by taking massive action. For, as the saying goes… ‘You can lead a horse to the river, but you can’t make him drink’.

Seeking to shorten the process that leads to success in anything can be costly in terms of time and money – you must go the distance. What you can do though, is to seek out someone who has gone on before you to guide you and save yourself the time-consuming tryals and errors that they have experienced, and this is where Sarah fits in.

Her video tutorials are going to provide you with relevant information that you can apply right away to begin building your business. She continuously monitors the various social media platforms and search engines for changes in algorithms and other areas and immediately makes changes to her training material when necessary.

The numerous transcripts and videos are very professionally done and easy to learn and apply. The advantage of using these products and becoming a member of her Licensing Partner Team is that you eventually acquire the same knowledge that she has. Some of this knowledge she receives at various mastermind events where top marketers share strategies and ideas. Below is a video of Sarah interviewing one of her mastermind group members, Christopher John Payne as she tests drive the Tesla S model car. I hope you enjoy it!

How to Avoid the Outsourcing Nightmare Experience

There are numerous benefits to be derived from outsourcing for both you and your business. However, it is something you need to approach with extreme caution. Most importantly, you must know what you want and must give clear instructions to the person you are hiring.
One of the biggest mistakes people make when hiring outsourcers is giving vague instructions and expecting the outsourcer to know what they want.

Unless you spell it out to them, nobody is going to know what your vision is. If you fail to provide specifics when giving instructions, you are highly likely to be very dissatisfied with the results. You are going to end up wasting time having the project done over, and sometimes many times over.

So take time to figure out what exactly you want to be done, before placing an order. If you desire to have a web-page design in a particular way, provide a similar web-page and say, “I want it done like this one.” If you desire a plugin that would provide a specific function, make sure what you want is completely outlined, before contacting an outsourcer to have the work done. If you want a logo designed, provide specific instructions, together with an example of what it is you want.

Most people don’t do these things when they first start outsourcing, and in most cases, always end badly. Again: Do not forget to take time and clearly outline what it is you want to have done before approaching the outsourcer, and be specific.

Getting Started With Your Outsourcer
It is not advisable to begin working with an outsourcer before having proof that they are capable of producing quality work, are dependable and can communicate with you. The last thing you will want is to forward to them a project that is crucial to the smooth functioning of your business before knowing whether they are legitimate or not. That would be a sure formula for disaster.

What you should do first is to give them something small that’s not so important to your business. See how the handle that and then decide how to proceed from there. If you desire to have your entire website redesign, let them redesign a banner or page first to test their skill.

Apart from their skill, the main thing you will be focusing on is reliability. Will they meet the deadline that they set to get the job done? I have discovered that skill and talent are very important, but there are other areas to look at when hiring someone to get a specific job done.

For me, a good character comes first.

There are many talented and skilful people out there, but not all are reliable and can keep deadlines.

So when you find the reliable outsourcers, hold fast to them and don’t let go. Treat them well, and they will treat you well in return.

They are invaluable resources to both you and your business.

Now, as you would have noticed, I have barely touched the surface of the topic of outsourcing. If you desire to learn more, please follow this link.

Go here for everything you need to know about OUTSOURCING.

Make Money Online

It’s undeniable that the Internet is one of the coolest and quickest ways to generate income. The internet is not prejudiced to anyone, meaning that ANYONE can do it irrespective of age, gender, class, nationality, or creed. All that’s required is a working computer, access to the internet, and basic knowledge of the money-making system, and you can begin to make money online.

As you become involved in the process of making money online, you have a limitless volume of clients the world over. It’s just like having your own business offline 24/7. However, the difference is, you can automate many of the tiresome tasks.

Anyone can begin to generate income online today with the technology now available. Even with minimum knowledge, you can start by following the directions and recommendations given here. It is unrealistic to expect to become a millionaire by tomorrow morning, or even by the next 6 months. Those who say you can are most likely scammers. Don’t forget, when it sounds too good to be true, it’s a scam.

There are many ways to make money online. However, to avoid information overload, it is advisable to focus on one at a time, especially when now starting. Surveys conducted showed that information overload is the leading factor that contributes to %90 of newbie failures. Having said that, let’s examine the affiliate marketing way of making money online.

Affiliate Marketing

In its basic form, affiliate marketing is the process of selling other people’s products online for a commission.  This is an excellent way to start because:

  1. There isn’t the need to produce products of your own.
  2. You need not worry about product fulfilment or customer service.
  3. Owning a webpage is not necessary.
  4. It’s easy and fast to begin.

Because (for example) the world’s biggest online retailer  Amazon.com uses affiliate networks, you can be sure affiliate marketing is a genuine business. (Amazon is a public listed giant company)

On joining their network, you are given an affiliate link – whenever someone clicks on that link, they are then immediately taken to Amazon.com. You instantly make money if they purchase anything. The procedure is easy and short.

However, Amazon’s commission percentage is only 6% for newcomers, and it is going to take a long time to make even $100. For this reason, I suggest Clickbank.

Clickbank

Clickbank.com is an affiliate network that is highly credible and produces 350 million dollars in revenue annually. An affiliate network is a commission-structured sales scheme. You recommend a website to your website visitors and earn a percentage of any sales generated by them. An affiliate commission is what this percentage of sales is known as. The site benefits by the sales, and you by the commission as an affiliate.

I certainly endorse Clickbank to begin quickly and easily. You can sign up for free at www.Clickbank.com Clickbank is suitable for anyone with a desire to make money online.

I choose Clickbank instead of Amazon because Cnickbank’s commission percentages are generally higher and also its conversion rates.

Amazon’s affiliate commission is between 6% and 10% with only the top affiliates qualifying for the 10% rate whereas, the majority of the vendors at Clickbank pay affiliates around 50% and 75% commission. It appears you sometimes earn more than the vender for the sales you make.

Amazon’s cookies (information stored on a computer) survives for 24 hours, while Clickbank’s survives for 60 days. Example:  Johnny clicks my affiliate link, lands on Clickbank vendor’s site but didn’t purchase the product he intended to. 3 weeks later he decides to buy the product and does so. Even though it 3 weeks later, I still get the commission because the information in Clickbank’s cookie lasts for 60 days.

When someone purchases something from Clickbank, they can download it immediately and doesn’t have to wait around.  Most of the items sold on Clickbank affiliate network are downloadable information products, so you have no cost for shipping. Clickbank even went so far as to create their own training program called Clickbank University to assist their customers in finding more success with the Clickbank platform as an affiliate and also as a vendor.

Choosing Products to Promote

There are thousands of products in the Clickbank marketplace to choose from to promote, and the E-business/E-marketing type is among the best. Here are three reasons why this is so:

  1. You can generate more income selling because usually, the percentage rates of commission in this category are 50% and over and the majority of the products come with upsells, so you stand a good chance of earning commission on other products that would most likely be purchased by the customer.
  2. Because internet marketing and online business is an evergreen subject, you will never have trouble finding fresh and unique products to promote.
  3. Because e-marketing type products convert well as it is very competitive among online marketers.

Now, as said above, the e-business/e-marketing type is only one among the best of the lot to promote. The Health and Wellness type is just as excellent.

 

Affiliate marketing is a very profitable online business. It’s one of the many ways people make money online without ever having to go through product creation and all that it involves.

 

All you do is choose a product, sign up to its affiliate program, promote it, generate sales and get paid commissions.

 

Affiliate Marketing Sounds Easy?

Up to a point… however, your success depends on your ability to drive… traffic.

If you can’t drive the targeted traffic, you are going nowhere.

No point in sending a Fitness Offer to people who signed up to a blog or newsletter about Knitting & Crochet and vice versa. Or advertising to people in areas of the world who don’t have disposable income or credit cards to make a purchase.

If you are doing Solo ads, Safe swaps, Joint ventures, and such the like, you always need to know beforehand, that the traffic is suited to your offer. To ensure success as an internet marketer, both paid, as well as free ads, should be targeted.

Yes, there is free traffic like SEO, and there is paid traffic. SEO is about getting your website ranked in search engines like Google and being found by people searching for exactly what you are promoting. Then there is paid traffic where you just purchase it from social media platforms and other sources. Both can result in “0” positive results or very little when done incorrectly.

There are lots of free information products on Affiliate Marketing on the Internet today that is obsolete. They were written in 2013 and earlier, are strategies that worked back then but have no place in today’s digital marketing world. There are also obsolete paid ones around as well that are being sold to unsuspecting newbies. Many people are teaching and selling stuff that they don’t use in their own business, so you must exercise great caution when choosing someone to follow. However, it’s of uttermost importance that you find yourself a mentor.

What Motivates you?

It would be incorrect to say that making money should not be what motivates you to continue going on in internet marketing, as making money is one of the reasons I’m still at it myself. However, making money is not my only motivation to continue as an internet marketer, and it shouldn’t be yours either. If it is so, you may as well forget it now because you are not going to make it.

You will be faced with numerous obstacles and challenges along the way that can be overcome only with your love for the profession. You must love internet marketing with a passion. You must be other people-centred. This is not about you or me but about providing solutions to your prospects and customers problems. If this is your passion, then you are in the correct place, so continue reading. If you think it’s not, then stop reading this article and go and find your passion and follow it!

Be Consistent

Sometimes we look at successful people and believe they possess some unique talents that set them apart from others, and that’s 100/% true. However, that in itself doesn’t set them apart from others, because we are all blessed with special talents that make use unique. What sets them apart from everyone else is they are not quitters – they sat out to achieve their goals and remained steadfast, refusing to quit for any reason at all until they finally succeeded. Simply put – they are consistent.

Almost everyone can recall a former school mate who continually excelled in several essential subjects at high school. So much so that everyone expected the individual to achieve abundant success later in life. And as if by some stroke of ill faith, others who were much less bright went on to accomplish much, while the onetime school’s darling amounted to almost nothing.

For every justifiable excuse that can be produced for our school mate’s failure, failure at being consistent will be the underlying factor.

As good content is king, so is consistency.

It will take you from behind and place upfront, take you from the bottom and place you at the top.

Focus steadily on consistency while being consistent. When it comes to having your performance and business stand out, consistency is most effective.

Find a Mentor

Now go out there and find yourself a mentor and tutor to guide and expose you to all the training you need to build and expand your business. Find someone that teaches the same things they use in their business every day, and revises and updates their training material regularly, and keeps them relevant to the present time.

Then you must be prepared to give it time and to be consistent, as there is no quick and easy way to make money online. If you are mindful of this through-out, you will reach your destination much faster than you think.
