Do you jump onto the next Internet marketing craze?

Postby keegan99k9 » Wed Feb 07, 2007 5:00 am

Newbies often make the mistake of jumping from one make-money-online opportunity to the next without ever taking the time to do anything properly. It’s tough for someone new to Internet marketing to focus only on the very basics.

Trying to do Video, PodCasting, Audio, Google AdSense, SEO, RSS, or Secret Project XYZ etc… all at once, just won’t get you anywhere. First you need to build a solid foundation for your online business.

I highly recommend to everyone new to the world of IM to master the basics first before trying any of the "fancier" stuff. Pick a strategy, write your plan… and follow through. That’s going to be responsible for more than 70% of your long-term success:

* Use a few basic strategies to generate traffic
* Build a targeted, profitable list
* Develop a relationship with your subscriber – this makes your list responsive
* Ask them what they want and give it to them

I know, it’s often difficult to resist all these enticing offers hitting your mailbox every day – but you simply have to put them aside and stay focused on your plan.

I am one of them. Lost focus lately, diverted my energy on other IM and neglected my own business.

Fortunately, I realized it, re-focus my attention on building my own business.
