Interestingly enough. Over the last several years. I've been asked practically as many questions about doing business online and Internet marketing as I have the writings of Wallace D. Wattles. And. Quite frankly.
That doesn't surprise me in the least. Why? Simple. Because nowhere is the crap piled higher than in the arenas of online business and Internet marketing.
And. You know what they say on the farm. The higher it's piled the more it smells! Or something like that anyway. :-) However. Somewhere. Buried deep amidst those piles are three essential keys to getting rich online.
Here they are. Essential Key #1 - Your OWN product. Now. I'm well aware that there are all sorts of folks out there telling you that you can get rich online solely by selling other people's products as an affiliate.
That's crap! As a matter of fact. Just take a look at the businesses of those telling you this and see how many of their own products they sell including the ebook or course you bought from them telling you how to get rich online as an affiliate and that'll tell you just about everything you need to know on the subject. :-) Now. Can you make money as an affiliate.
Big money as an affiliate? Heck yeah! However. The main trouble with operating *strictly* as an affiliate is that you don't have an *asset*. In other words. You don't *own* anything. You don't own a customer list. You don't own a product.
And. As a result. You're forever at the mercy of those who do. Should they disappear.
Change the deal. Or simply not pay. Guess what? You're @#$% out of luck! It's that simple.
The bottom line here is that. If you want to get rich online you need your OWN product. And not just any old product. You need.
A unique, quality product that delivers more in use value than you receive in cash value. Essential Key #2 - An opt-in email list. Actually. You need two of them if you want to get rich online.
Regardless of whether it's with your own product or as an affiliate. The first opt-in email list you need is a prospect list. A list of people who are interested in your area of expertise and/or interest in general. The second opt-in email list you need is a customer list. A list of people who've bought your product (see Essential Key #1 above).
Essential Key #3 - Automated systems. You need to put systems, preferably automated systems, in place to do everything from driving traffic to your website to delivering your product and handling customer service. Why? Simple. To free up your time to create more unique, quality products that deliver more in use value than you receive in cash value.
You see. One of the biggest mistakes people make when setting out to get rich online is trying to do it with one product. Pinning all their hopes of getting rich online solely on that one product and on that one product alone. Don't let that be you! :-) Here's the deal.
Most people I know who are getting rich online operate *multiple* websites offering *multiple* products to their target audience. They sell *many* products and make their money by creating multiple sources of income within their core business rather than depending on a single product to get rich online. Although there's some question as to whether he really said it or not. The late United States Senator Everett Dirksen is popularly attributed as having said.
"A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking real money." Regardless of whether he said it or not, the *concept* is what's important here and nowhere is this concept more important than in getting rich online. A couple of hundred dollars here every month, five hundred dollars there every month, a thousand dollars over here every month, a few thousand dollars over there every month. And. Pretty soon.
You're talking real money. Get rich kind of money! But. It all begins with the first essential key to getting rich online. Your OWN product. A unique, quality product that delivers more in use value than you receive in cash value.
So. If you really want to get rich online. Rather than wasting your time shoveling through all the piles of crap out there looking for the "secret" to getting rich online or the "easy" way to get rich online.
In my humble opinion. Your time would be much better spent creating your first product. A unique, quality product that delivers more in use value than you receive in cash value. Because. That's the first essential key, and therefore the first vital step, to getting rich online! Copyright (c) 2007 Tony Mase.
