The Missing Magic Internet Marketing Ingredient

I’m going to talk about exactly what it takes to be successful online and what is the best online business and where to get the best internet marketing course that is free on the web today. 

But first, let me tell you a story…

The Missing Magic Internet Marketing IngredientGrowing up in the country, on a farm, our neighbor had a bull that was just about the most stubborn thing you’ve ever encountered. If you wanted it to go out to the pasture, it would steadfastly refuse to go and instead would spend all day in the barn.

Then if you wanted it to come into the barn because of the rain, it would stand out there in the pasture until it was soaked and still, it would not come indoors to dry off.

And so on it went. No matter what you wanted this bull to do, it always seemed resolutely fixed on taking the opposite course of action to what you wanted.

Internet Marketing

With Internet marketing, we often wonder why success comes so hard.

  • Perhaps if we learn just one more technique maybe it will all come together for us.
  • Perhaps if we buy one more course, one more ebook or attend one more webinar, it will all make sense and the money will rain down from the sky.

But a month later, or a year later, where do most marketers find themselves? In the exact same place they were before, still struggling to make much money online.

What do you have in common with a Bull?

Now you might wonder what a stubborn bull and a struggling Internet marketer have in common, and it’s this:

“Both of them already have success within themselves, the key to success is hidden within your motivation, your determination and your ‘teach-ability’. In other words are you teach-a-bull.”

The bull doesn’t need an eBook on ‘how to come in out of the rain’ any more than a struggling marketer needs a another eBook on how to make money online.

What the bull and the Internet Marketer both need to be successful, is a ‘success mindset’, or more specifically, adopting what we might simply call, a change in our mind.

Belief

A belief in their own success. So rather than cursing the journey out to the green pasture when we’re standing in the barn, or damning the rain when we don’t have sense enough to come inside, we need merely only change our thinking, and by changing our thinking we can change our actions, and thereby change our results. It’s all about belief and having a dream.

Dreams and Goals do Happen:

Instead of envying the ‘big guns’ that have large lists of people ready to promote their products to thousands of hungry buyers, ask how can you get yourself into a position where you too, have a long list of people who would love to promote your products. 

Instead of getting frustrated that you can’t seem to monetize your site, find out what others are doing that’s working.  You can emulate and improve upon their methods, or better still, you get an education on internet marketing. (I’ll show you how to do exactly that in a moment.) But first, you need to believe that you can, make it a goal and dream about it.

Don’t Play the Victim

The Missing Magic Internet Marketing IngredientPlaying the victim to your circumstances is like telling yourself that it’s too late to get into the Internet marketing game, that all the great niches are gone, that you’ll never be able to do what others have already accomplished and so forth – that’s just negative thinking.

Playing the victim is like standing out in the rain and refusing to come inside, or standing inside the barn and refusing to go out into the green pastures.

Victims don’t make money, they make misery. Whereas a ‘success mindset’ constantly asks, how a negative can be turned into a positive, and how a shortfall can be re-made into a windfall, how can lemons be made into lemonade?

Winners – Win

Such as the examples I highlight in other posts, like the one about the smuggler or the 23-year-old who made $120,000 in one day. (true story)

Every time you find yourself reacting negatively to something, mentally correct your self by seeing it as a challenge rather than as a problem. Do this enough times and you will reprogram yourself for success, after all, you cannot help but be successful if you are constantly taking positive action and you can only take positive action when you first think the positive thoughts that lead to that action. Believe in yourself. (For details on how to do this go here)

Success

Also, learn to think long term. Success isn’t leaping from one idea to the next. Success is found when you choose your path and then stay on that path until you reach your destination. True, the trip may not unfold as you plan, but so long as you keep your eyes on the prize and continue to move forward, believing that you can, you cannot help but succeed.

And you don’t need to invent new markets, rather you need only find a market that is already profitable and then find ways to improve on what is being offered to that market.

What do People Want?

Find out what it is that people want, and not only deliver it to them but go above and beyond in ways that are so extraordinarily helpful and pleasing, that your name becomes synonymous with incredible value in that niche.

Forget magic bullets, or any new-fangled software program that proclaims they will change everything for you in the wink of an eye. Instead, choose your niche, create your website and/or blog and focus on building quality content and work on building your list of quality subscribers and new customers.

Forget any gimmick that promises thousands of people on your list in a week, they will only give you bogus email addresses or people who couldn’t care less about your niche. It’s a waste of your time and your resources.

Better to have 50 people on your list who are truly interested in your niche than 5,000 people who aren’t. You are better to have 2 proven buyers in that niche than 50 freebie seekers. (see my post on list building)

Focus

By focusing on building great content you will soon find your site attracting a following, and soon you may have 5 or 10 great leads. In short order you will find that this works for you, day in and day out. And once you’ve got your ‘content‘ attracting readers, it’s simply a matter of time before those 5 to 10 become 50 to 100 and even more.

But, it all starts at the beginning, at finding what works to bring in that first truly interested subscriber, and then the second and so on. There are no shortcuts.

True, there are many who will sell you on the idea that you can make your fortune or build your list overnight, but ask yourself this, “Who prospers when you purchase their product? The answer is, it’s them! While you are left with a little less cash and a little less hope.

Seek and Find

Let others, search for the magic holy grail of traffic that instantly floods their site with visitors. The thing about floods, is they are fast and deep, but they’re also messy and short-lived. Instead, gradually grow your business on a rock solid foundation that can withstand any storm.

The Missing Magic Internet Marketing IngredientThe Missing Magic Internet Marketing IngredientThink about the choice of either grabbing a few hundred dollars overnight, to then  be left with no more income. Versus; Doubling a penny each day, for 30 days.

“Which would you choose?

The doubling pennyof course, even though it only brings in a few pennies for the first few weeks and it looks like a bad choice, compared to the instant hundreds of dollars that you could have had.

But then, ‘the magic happens‘, an abundance of money comes to you in the last part of the month, as it doubles and doubles and doubles again. And builds into a solid unstoppable income that arrives day and night, regardless of the economy, trends, quirks in the market, or any competition. The Missing Magic Internet Marketing Ingredient

And success is not just a matter of mindset, it’s not just a matter of choosing a path and sticking to it and finding what works and doing more of it. It’s also about developing your skills as a marketer.

What if?

What if this week you master;

  • How to write articles that send traffic to your site?
  • Perhaps next week, you master setting up a blog and write a new post every couple of days.
  • And perhaps the week after you learn how to make short videos that inform your visitors, and drives traffic to your affiliate links.

What if each week you picked a new task to master, but even if it took you two weeks to master something new, in less than 3 months, you will know more than 95% of most marketers out there.

    Wow! I love this post because as a new marketer who is also a firm believer in “The Law of Attraction” and in the “Growth Mindset,” I totally get this post.

    I have met so many people who are giving up. I see it. They think that they are too old to start anything new, too set in their ways to learn anything. Some people even say that they don’t want to have to “think” — but I believe that when we don’t think, when we don’t challenge ourselves, we might as well call it a day.

    I was talking with a friend of mine the other day. She and I determined that even though we knew that someday we’d have to “retire,” we never wanted to stop learning and growing. That’s why learning the business of Internet marketing is so great. It’s a fluid learning process; what was new today is going to be old hat tomorrow, so there is always something to learn.

    And when you are learning, you feel alive. When you feel alive, you want to do more.

    Thanks for the great post!

      Hello, Elizabeth.

      There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

      “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.”

      And that just means – do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there! That’s how we need to face the things that need to be done and success is the same way. We don’t always enjoy doing all the things necessary to get ahead but we can either out source it or grin and bear it and do it ourselves. It all take effort but you should at least enjoy it the best you can along the way.

      Thank you for your comments. 🙂

    Hi Peter,

    Awesome read and some real golden nuggets there. I have struggled for months with my site and niche not earning over a certain number. Then, and in all honesty an attitude and mindset change and an absolute avalanche happened – twice my regular income for an entire month in 12 crazy days..and still 4 days into April the sales keep flooding in!

    Sometimes the biggest and greatest changes we can make to improve our sites and their performance is that attitude change and not tweaking with SEO or conversions or some fancy-wancy trick or tip!

    • Peter

      Hello, Derek That’s great! and often so true!. “What we think about we bring about”. Not sure who actually said that but it’s a good saying none-the-less. Thank you for your comments and pleased to hear things are going well. 🙂

  • Sondra

    Hi, I saw a motivational comment that you left on someone’s post on Wealthy Affiliate that was frustrated with her lack of progress. I liked your comment to her and decided to check out your page.

    Based on the number of comments this one post has received, you are helping people.

    As someone that owns a bull, I loved your analogy with the bull. Your tips all sounded great. Thank you for attempting to help everyone. Granted, some of us may be like the stubborn bull thinking that we need to stay put. Others will take your advise.

    • Hello, Sondra. I am pleased you liked the post and yes that’s what WA is about (helping people) which is what makes it such a great platform. Thank you for your comments and I hope you also in enjoy the eBook that is coming your way, Cheers:)

  • Arnold

    An excellent post Peter. The information seconds the high standard of training as found on WA.

    They say when the student is ready the Master will appear. On reading your post you’ve greatly assisted me in deciding on a niche as there were a originally a few.

    I look forward to connecting with you more often.

    • Hello, Arnold Thank you for your comments, I am pleased you have enjoyed my page one ranked post. I appreciate your comments very much. All the best to your future success 🙂

  • Hi Peter,
    Thanks for the engaging story and inspirational message. I also appreciate your spreading and reinforcing the message that there are no magic bullets. In my experience, affiliate marketing takes hard work and intense dedication over an extended period of time. This did not come as a surprise to me. What doesn’t :)? Training and implementation of the training are essential. If you do the right things and stick with it long enough, the momentum will eventually start to build. I look forward to further exploration of your site.

    • Hello, Linda. I am pleased you liked my post and found it engaging. Thank you for your comments and I hope you will also enjoy the free eBook I am sending your way 🙂

  • Hi

    I have to agree fully with the penny a day analogy,I would rather build something sustainable that making a quick buck overnight.

    Love your site, tons of good info.

    Take Care

    I believe in “success mindset” and no one can do it for you but YOU alone. If you set your mind to success, every action that you’ll take is going towards achieving it. Sometimes you have to bend but never break.

    Great post. Great site – a lot to learn.

  • adam James

    Great site Peter. Id love to learn more from your book.

  • Some great content here Peter, I look forward to keeping up with your posts & articles, very informative and it looks like you have a successful web business, Good one

  • Sibylle

    I like your comparison with the bull:-). I do agree that one of the first steps is to change your mindset. I believe it’s also the hardest to do – at least for me. Well, thanks for your article.

    • Hi, Sibylle. Thanks for your feedback, yes being a country boy I kinda relate to the bull myself. Hope you enjoy the book that is coming your way. 🙂

  • Louisab

I agree that it is a worthwhile decision to enter the world of WA and with people such as you in the community it is no wonder that we can reach our potential. I have bookmarked your site and will be reading with intent through your information.

    • Hello, Steve. Thank you for your comments and I am pleased you found my site and have joined the community at WA. You are now on a wonderful and profitable journey. Please enjoy the book that is coming your way as a thank you for leaving a comment. 🙂

  • Hi Peter,
    What a great read this post was! Your video is truly a motivation for anyone, and reminds me of how many times I just gave in and accepted my fate. A lot of life’s hard lessons come to mind in a haunting reality, And then one day we find ourselves in that situation, that forces us to do something to change life for the better. Wealthy affiliates seem to be that one thing that will change it. Do you think that anyone can do the same thing you are doing?

    • Hi, Chas. Absolutely and by following WA training anyone can do it. Jut don’t expect to have it happen overnight because it takes time, hard work and commitment. Thank you for leaving a comment. 🙂

  • Cristina

    I’ve read that Affiliate Marketing is the easiest way for someone to start to earn money on The Internet. In your opinion, this learning program is good for someone without any knowledge in this field?
    When I clicked “the wheel”, I could see your message “this is not a get-quick-rich scheme.” Can you let me know more about the time required to invest in my education before I earn my first income? Can you share your experience?

    • Hello, Cristina.

      Sometimes we think there is some magic formula that is missing when it comes to making money online, but actually, it’s not that simple. It is the knowledge and experience that comes from hard work and dedication over time that has been proven to make people successful online. Just as my mentors showed me what mistakes to avoid and how to make real money with affiliate marketing is what gave me the knowledge to create a highly tuned affiliate marketing business and now some of that I put into the various ebooks, and products I have on my site.

      The short answer is there is no specific time frame because it all comes down to how much work you put in AND what work you do. However there is no better place online than Wealthy Affiliate to get the education you need.

      I can not answer your question “how long before you make money” because for you I don’t know. It might be a few months or a year or so.
      Think of it as getting an education and learning skills along the way that will eventually lead you to make money. What I can say is that when everything comes together, you will be very PLEASED with the results.

      Thank you for your comments 🙂

      • Cristina

        Thank you, Peter, for answering my questions.
        I’m aware that I have to learn first; having an online business is like any other business. But, there is a significant advantage, because “the workplace” is wherever there is an internet connection.

        I’ve read your review about Wealthy Affiliate and seems an excellent starting point.
        In fact, I’ve signed up for a free account.

        I’m very grateful for pointing me in the right direction! 🙂
        Cristina

        • Hello, Cristina.

    Going for a few customers that appreciate your content is much better than a 1000 that could care less makes sense.

    Marty

    • Hello Marty Thanks for your comments and yes trying to be all things to all men is a the surest way to fail online. Find a niche and give your readers what they want, build your audience one person at a time. 🙂

  • That penny doubled each day for 30 days . . .I’d be okay with it only doubling once a week for six months. Just 26 weeks would be plenty for me to live on! LOL!

    • Hello Diana Thanks for your comments and yes that doubling penny is a fantastic thing and that what can kinda happen with your online business to. It starts off very slow with little to show for itself and then it slowly begins to build momentum. Thanks again for your feedback 🙂

  • Peter, thank you so much for the great info. You are so right! And many I have already started to do. I don’t expect to be a millionaire overnight, I know it’s going to take long hours and a lot more learning every single day. Which is exactly what I am planning.
