I’ve been watching my fair share of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Even though my favourite team did not make the playoffs…again, I always find it amazing to watch the sheer athleticism and skill of these guys.
However, it’s also amazing how certain teams can do so well, year after year. It got me thinking about starting an online business and the intense desire we can have to be successful.
Okay, hold on tight because this is important.
When you’re just starting out, it’s tempting to try to reinvent online business.
Success comes by watching what is working for others and following in their footsteps until you know what you’re doing.
Once you know what you’re doing, then and only then can you start experimenting with things no one else has ever done before.
I know how tempting it is to do things YOUR WAY, but think about this…
If you are earning $0.00 online, and someone else is earning $1,000,000 online, who do you suppose knows what they are doing?
Choose a proven plan. Follow the steps. Reinvent later.
You knew there had to be a but, right?
Be super careful who you emulate. I’ll give you an easy example:
You see a self-proclaimed expert online who posts lots of pictures of expensive cars, monster big houses, beaches, palm trees and skinny women in bikinis riding on yachts. This guy tells you that you can make money by pushing 3 buttons on your computer if and only if you buy his product today.
You see another person who doesn’t claim to be an expert, but he’s been around for a long time and he’s got a loyal following who believe in him. He tells you that if you can take instruction well, if you can follow the plan as laid out, then over the course of a year you can build a highly profitable business.
Without any more information, which one is more likely to be offering you an actual marketing plan that works?
Wishing you massive success,
