It’s a Marathon, not a Sprint

It’s a Marathon, not a Sprint

Looking to become stinking rich overnight? Well you are looking in the wrong place here. Making money online is as the old cliche says. “It’s a marathon, not a sprint” Things just don’t happen like that. You have to build your business and the first step there is finding your niche, then you brand your business and then building relationships. Once you are underway and start seeing residual income come in you can start seeing how profitable but not before that so if anyone ever tells you this then they are most probably just looking for a quick buck from you.

Finding your niche

Are you an Amazon affiliate or perhaps you like me are into marketing of online products. Either way find your niche and stick to it doing all the research you can to make sure you know what you are talking about when people ask the questions that you are going to answer well to catch that fish.

Brand your business

If you are a YouTube reviewer or email marketer you need to have your own brand so people recognise your work when they see it. For example if you have the right YT banner and you use this design through all of your social media platforms then people will see this brand and then remember who you are and where they have seen you before. Trust me it works.

Building relationships

Ok, so your business is up and running and you are getting traffic and clicks. These people are not just going to buy your products. You might be lucky and get the odd one or two who will but it is doubtful. Invite them to get to know you on social media and you get to know them. Be honest would you rather buy something from someone you know or someone you don’t know? I think I know the answer.

This is just a short explanation on how the marathon works. NOTHING happens overnight but if you put the effort in it can happen fast enough. Do you think Richard Branson built his Virgin empire on a sprint? No, he did not and he also had some awful hurdles on the way.

What never to do in affiliate marketing

If you’re doing any of these no-nos then you’re on a collision course with failure.

Just sayin’.

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)

#3. Over-Learning

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

You can’t.

Having your own website or at least a blog 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 no time by clicking this link.

Exciting opportunity for you!

If you had a nightmare week last week and are dreading the coming week don’t stress;

Because I have a very exciting opportunity to share with you.

It’s a brand new money-making opportunity which is going to be the talk of the town.

Mainly because it’s a very small investment for a huge opening.

i.e. You can do this with as little as $20 upfront.

We’re talking a few measly bucks here. Come on. Open your wallet and eyes and see the potential.
