If you’re doing any of these no-nos then you’re on a collision course with failure.
So let’s get stuck into them…
#1. Hanging out on Forums
Trolls. Wannabes. Fakers.
It’s a big, fat waste of time. If you’re looking for free information go grab a job and save up to buy the real stuff.
If you’re selling a product – stick it on your own domain to avoid the forum BMWs (bitchers, moaners and whingers).
Need I say more?
#2. Hanging out on Facebook
Any more than fifteen minutes a day and you’re in deep doo-doo.
I’m not talking about personal Facebook on personal time.
I’m talking about frittering away valuable business hours on the black hole which is – the dreaded Facebook Newsfeed of doom.
Facebook Likes don’t pay the bills.
(Nor do dancing cat videos or pictures of Patrick Stewart)
If you’re spending more than 10% of your time learning stuff you’ve got it wrong.
You need to learning new stuff but too much learning and you get hooked.
You get addicted to the education merrygoround and start confusing that warm fuzzy feeling with earning.
Learning is not earning.
Don’t spend all your time in internet marketing school.
You need to graduate into the real world and start applying what you know.
#4. Consuming Instead of Creating
Don’t get me wrong.
You still need to consume – you need to learn things. But all in moderation.
All the leading marketers I know are great consumers.
But first and foremost they are great creators.
So consume then create.
The more things you create (websites, content, products) the more cash you will have coming in.
#5. Thinking You Can Succeed Without a Website
Having your own website is where it all starts.
And it’s easier than you think.
You can stop learning and start earning today.
You can graduate from the forums and Facebook and finally start creating.
In fact, you can have your own website up and running and ready to make sales for you in just 60 minutes by clicking the link in the comments.
