Solving the Internet Marketing Puzzle

Whether your online business activities are more of a hobby than anything else, or whether they represent a genuine part-time to full-time income, you would like to see your business grow - specifically, your MLM affiliate businesses. The challenge for most people seems to be doing what's necessary in order to build their organizations. Personally, I feel that the reason for this is that very few people TRULY want what they say they want. Because if they did, they'd do whatever it took to get it.

Everybody wants more money but I don't believe that most folks can SEE themselves having it. Deep down, they don't believe it's possible. Your subconscious mind (the part of your brain that ACTUALLY runs your life) is defeating your conscious thoughts. What I'm trying to say is that most people don't have a 'Vision', and that's why they never get anywhere. Some might call it having a 'Core Desire' or 'A Reason Why'. I like the word 'Vision', but it all boils down to one thing: being DRIVEN to succeed.

I'm talking about an all-consuming, white-hot desire that rarely leaves your mind - a mental movie of what you want, why you want it and how your life looks once you have it. 'Hope' is what politicians have for you. I'm not talking about hoping for things to happen. You'll wait your life away. You got to MAKE them happen.

This is the first 'secret' of business success - online or off, and especially with MLM affiliate marketing.

The second 'secret' to the puzzle is tenacity. Closely related to the WILL to win, you have to stay around long enough. The vast, vast majority of those who attempt online marketing (or MLM in general) give up far too quickly. You might as well know up front that this type of business is a long term project and you will be frustrated time and time again with sign-ups that won't refer anyone else, sign-ups that drop out or companies that let you down. It's all part of it. But if you stay with it, if you DON'T QUIT, then life has a funny way of finally giving you what you want.

The third 'secret' to the puzzle is that Internet Marketing is a lot of work! And guess what? You have to do the work. This involves an enormous amount of trial & error, along with heartaches, heartbreaks, wasted time and wasted money. We all go through this 'online tunnel of despair'. But as you march on, you will get smarter, tougher and more experienced. It took me about a year to finally figure it all out and get my systems in place - a long and very frustrating year.

On thing that I have done to help out my signups is to create an ebook that they can read (and even USE!) and, hopefully, shorten that learning curve quite a bit. If you'd like to take a look at it, you can download it here: Internet Wildcatters

'Internet Wildcatters' is the result of much blood, sweat and tears but that's what this business is all about - having a Vision, being tenacious and doing the work. If you take the time to check it out, I am positive that it will (at least in some way) help guide you to the success that you deserve...
