8 Behaviors That Will Make You An Unstoppable Entrepreneur

In this post, I am going to explain to you 8 behaviors that will make you an unstoppable entrepreneur.

Have a Passion for Winning

It does not matter if do you have an online or offline business, you need to understand your niche and beat the competition.

In business, you will face a lot of challenges and setbacks, never give up in the face of resistance and setbacks. Have fearless accountability for getting results. Be consumed with making things better and have an insatiable curiosity for learning.

Have a Growth Mindset

Find out what is the main problems in your niche, and solve them. Don’t do business just to make a quick buck. Promote confidence and trust.

Your business should be focused on your prospects and buyers, find new opportunities, and obsess overgrowth. Understand what creates value for customers.

Think Big … Then Make It Happen

Dream of the possibilities instead of limitations. Be willing to re-examine almost anything. Innovate with agility, iterate, test, try, take risks. Translate the best ideas into realistic, pragmatic, executable plans.

Act with Urgency

Act quickly when faced with ambiguity. Get the facts that you can, think, and then move with lightning speed. Use speed as a differentiator. Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.

Be Courageous

Take bold action on what you believe is right. Confront problems directly and face adversity head-on. Be comfortable being unpopular when required and press on. Take on seemingly impossible goals and work out of your comfort zone.

Overdeliver

Never overpromise, always give your prospects and customers more than you promised them, Over-deliver on commitments. Be committed to putting in your maximum work effort and always do what you say. Be the someone people trust to get things done and deliver.

Inspire Greatness

As Les Brown says, ‘you have greatness in you’ empower, develop, and set high expectations for you, your products, and services. Bring others with you, achieve things you never thought possible, and celebrate your wins.

Become Your Best

When you’re just starting out you will probably suck, then you will suck less and less, and eventually, you will stop sucking.

Don’t compare yourself with others and never compete with them, only what you need to do is to become the better version of yourself, every day try to improve and before you know it, people, with start to call you an expert.

Seek and accept feedback wherever you can get it, decide what to change, and go for it. Be curious, and be confident and humble. Read others’ reactions, and adjust as you go. Bounce back from disappointments.

Final words

Those are 8 behaviors that will make you an unstoppable entrepreneur, find out how many of those behaviors do you possess, if you possess all of them congratulations, if not figure out those behaviors you’re missing and work on implementing them in your business.

5 Ways You Waste Time Every Day

When I talk to people about why their online business is stalling the most common reason is that they do not have time due to having a full-time job, having to take care of their kids and family, etc.

In this post, I am going to show you 5 ways you waste time every day and you can regain some of that time and dedicate it to your business.

Check out the most common five ways you waste time every day. Do you find yourself doing any of them? You’ll also find some time management strategies.

They can help you become more efficient and productive and be able to get the most out of your day. Let’s get started.

5 of the Biggest Timewasters of Your Day

5 Ways You Waste Time Every Day

Even if you’re one of the more dedicated and organized people out there, you still waste time. Whether you work from home or in the office, we’re all guilty of getting distracted and losing focus. It may not be deliberate and you probably don’t even realize you’re doing it until it’s too late.

Here are five ways you waste time every day. See if you can relate.

1.      Social Media/Emails/Texts

It’s become a vital part of our lives. But the world won’t stop turning if you don’t look at your social media for 15 minutes.

Another big distraction is hearing that too familiar ‘ding’ that comes with a new email or text message. It prevents you from finishing the task at hand because you keep looking at your phone every five minutes.

Picture this scenario: you’re in the middle of work when your phone beeps. You reach for your phone to see your incoming message. So, you go from message to email to Facebook to Instagram. Then, when you’re done, you notice that 20 minutes have gone by.

Research shows that each time you get distracted, even for a couple of minutes, your brain needs more than 20 minutes to refocus. Imagine how much wasted time that amounts to at the end of the day!

The Fix: Avoid randomly checking social media, emails, or texts. Instead, set up a certain time during your day for doing just that. In the meantime, turn off any notifications or mute your phone.

2.      Organizing and Preparing

You’re probably wondering: how is this a time-waster? But too often we fall down the rabbit hole of ‘organizing’ our day. Sometimes, we take too far that we actually run out of time to do any of the things on our list.

The Fix: Find an online planner and to-do-list. Then, pick one day out of the week where you plan out the whole seven days in advance. Schedule work-related projects, meetings, and deadlines. You can also include a workout schedule and get-togethers with friends.

3.      Multitasking

Multitasking: another thing that we do to trick ourselves into believing we’re being productive. Yet, the sad truth is, multitasking wastes a ton of time.

It’s counter-productive when your attention is divided among several tasks at once. In other words, it’s just another form of distraction.

The Fix: It’s simple. Just put all your attention and focus on one task at a time. When you’re done, move on to the next task, and so on.

4.      Checking the News

In this day and age, it seems something is happening in the news every five minutes. So, it’s easy to use the news as an excuse for procrastination. After all, we all want to be in the loop when it comes to politics, sports, and local news.

The Fix: Force yourself to stay away from checking news updates every half hour. You can use sheer self-discipline, or you can use a site blocker.

One great example is the Stay Focused Chrome app. It helps you ‘hide’ certain websites for, say, 45 minutes. Then, tell the app you want to spend 20 minutes on the so-and-so website. After the 20 minutes are done, the app will block you again until your next break.

5.      Errands and Chores

The problem isn’t with the errands or chores themselves; it’s when you do them. Running errands during rush hour is one of the biggest time wasters ever!

Doing chores is another. You might be sitting at your desk, working away when you notice a dusty shelf or a cluttered drawer. So, you do the responsible thing and start dusting and decluttering.

You tell yourself that it’ll only take five minutes. Then, when you’re done cleaning the entire room/office, the day is over! And you still haven’t finished what you’re initially working on.

The Fix: Plan your errands ahead when you know there’ll be less traffic. Also, try to do your shopping when you know the stores won’t be as crowded and they’re in their least peak hours.

As for chores, set up one or two days during the week when you do all the dusting, cleaning, and decluttering. This way, even if you see catches your attention, you can push back in your mind and wait until ‘chore day’ rolls around.

A Final Note

We all get the same amount of time each day: 86,2400 seconds, 1,440 minutes, or 24 hours. It’s up to you to figure out how you’re going to spend that time. Sadly, many of us spend our days doing things that don’t really add any value to our lives—or anyone else’s for that matter.

The good news is you can train yourself to focus more and have fewer distractions. Make a conscious effort to add purpose and value to your life and follow through. You’ll soon notice you’re getting more done during your day than ever before!

 

How to Choose a Web Hosting Service According to Your Budget

Choosing a web hosting service is one of the most important decisions you will make as an online entrepreneur. Having bad and slow hosting can kill your business, in this article, I am going to give you some tips when it comes to choosing a web hosting service according to your budget.

When I say according to your budget, I mean that it depends on how much money do you want to invest in the web hosting service.

If you´re broke or you just to test things out before becoming serious

If you’re a stone-cold broke or you´re just testing your ideas, I will recommend going with Hostgator, to be honest with you this is not one of the best web hosting services on the internet, but they are reliable and they have been in business for a long time.

One of the things I like about Hostgator is that you can pay with PayPal (which is a huge relief for people who are coming from most of the third world countries), it is relatively cheap, it is less than 12 dollars per month.

As I said their service is quite basic but they give you enough tools to build your first blog/website if you’re just starting out or broke go with Hostgator.

hostgator

Serious about online business

If you have a serious online business or you have a little bit more money to invest I will recommend going with Sitegroud.

Siteground is one of the best web hosting companies today, you will have the best technical support, you get free SSL with them, their servers are faster than most hosting services.

If do you have a growing online business or blog, this is the hosting service you should choose, I don´t recommend it for people who are testing out because in order to pay monthly you will need to pay a set fee which is an extra cost and also I don’t recommend for people who don’t have credit/debit card because Siteground does not have the PayPal option.

If you’re serious about growing your online business, you should check out Siteground.

Siteground

WPX Hosting

I hosted my blogs in many hosting companies over the years, for me, Wpxhosting is the best, they have the fastest web servers, actually one of the best bloggers around Mattew Woodward did a test where he tested all major Webhosting companies, WPX Hosting came first in almost all major factor like speed, support, memory, and space.

They offer you a free backup to all your websites, they scan your websites for you and if they find any virus or malware, they remove them for you for free.

They can move your websites from other hosting companies to Wpxhosting for free, they can configure your blog/website for you, they can even install it for you if you don’t know-how.

These guys are amazing, I don’t have enough words to describe how great they are. For me, the most impressive thing I found out about them is their ability to respond to any message I send them in less than 5 seconds each time I contact them.

Their prices start at $24.99 for 5 websites, it may seem a little bit high for some, but I can assure you that it worth the investment.

How to choose a Web hosting service according to your budget

For me, those will be the three web hosting companies I will recommend you to choose if you are broke and no money to invest or just testing out, go with Hostgator and when you make some money upgrade to Siteground.

If you have some money to invest starting with Siteground and when you start having a lot of traffic, change your web hosting to WPX Hosting.

If do you want the best web hosting service and you have some money to invest, please go with Wpxhosting.

 

Thank you for reading.

 

 

Three steps to make full time income online

Making a full-time income online is a dream for most of us who start an online business, but most people who try and start an online business fail to make a dime and they end up quitting.

In this post, I am going to give you three steps you must pass through on your way to making a full-time income online.

Step 1: Change your mindset and beliefs

Most people who start an online business have been working for someone for a large part of their life since they were little, they were told that you must study hard, get good grades, get a job and you will get paid.

Always there was someone to tell you what to do, and if you don’t do it they will punish you in some way, when you decide to become online entrepreneur, there is no one to tell you what to do, there is no one to punish you if you don’t do it, hence most people they will do nothing and make no money.

Also you need to change the instant gratification mindset, you do something, in few days you get paid, you have a check at the end of 2 weeks or 4 weeks, in business world it does not work like this, you might do something today and you have no idea if it will work or no, and you don’t know when you will get paid, this is a problem for many people.

Also, you need to have a belief that you can make money online, you need to believe that you’re good enough, if you don’t believe that you can make a full-time income online, probably you won’t, remember if you believe you can or you can´t you´re right.

In order to change all these, you will need to start reading self-help books, entrepreneurship books and other books related to your industry, if you can’t afford books or you´re not a book guy or girl you can watch YouTube video on those subjects and you gradually start to change your mindset.

Also, you can write some affirmation and read them the first thing in the morning and at night before going to bed, again this will help you to change the way of thinking and start attraction wealth.

>>>> Alexander has one of a great resource on how to attract the wealth you can check out here.

Three steps to make full time income online

Step 2: Start with free traffic

Getting traffic is an art and it should be mastered, most people will recommend you start will many traffic sources or paid traffic sources, but for me, you should always start with free traffic.

Before throwing your money on paid traffic you need to know few things about online business, if you start with nothing like I did, you don’t have enough money to buy traffic, you don’t know your niche yet, I would say until you make your first $1000, stick to the free traffic.

There are a lot ways to get traffic to the affiliate offer and squeeze pages, blogging, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Quora, document sharing sites etc, with time I will be posting all these free traffic methods here on my blog, make sure you visit frequently so that you won’t miss them.

Step 3: Invest in paid traffic

I like free traffic, but sometimes it is very difficult to scale, once you start making regular sales with free traffic, you should invest some of the cash on the paid traffic, this will do your online business a wonder and will make a lot of money very quickly.

A word of warning though, until you have at least $500 that you are able to lose without losing your sleep don’t invest in paid traffic, this is what I mean, paid traffic is a high risk, high reward investment, if you’re new there is a chance that you will lose money at first, if you´re taking money that you’re supposed to buy food for your kid in order to invest in paid traffic you’re risking yourself going into a trouble, it is better to spend extra 2 hours on free traffic than risking it, but if that money won’t affect your budget, I will encourage you to take that leap and invest some cash into paid traffic.

So that is it, those are three steps to make a full-time income online, if you’re just starting out or you need any help regarding starting and growing your online business, let me know and I will be glad to help out.

Thank you for reading, peace, and love

7 Things That Successful Online Marketers Have in Common

There are different approaches to make money online, most of these approaches will vary based on individual business goals and personality, but there are some things that all successful online marketers have in common. They all do all these 7 things.

7 Things That Successful Online Marketers Have in Common

1 They have a marketing channel

The marketing channel is a way to deliver your message to your audience, this can be a blog, an email list, a YouTube channel, social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc), in one or more of these channels you will find them with a big amount of people who follow them and consume their content, if you want to be successful, you need to start building your following online.

As a tip, don´t build all channels at the same time, build one and when you get success then you can add a new channel.

2 They have website/Funnel

All top marketers I know have at least one place where they can send their followers to subscribe or buy their stuffs, it does not matter if you have a huge YouTube Channel or Instagram followers, you need to have a page or series of pages where you can send your prospects to get free content or buy something from you.

For building pages most of big marketers use Clickfunnels.

3 They build their email list

If you have been marketing online for more than a day, I am sure that someone has told you that the money is on the list, you need to collect emails address from people who like your content.

You can use the power on email marketing to recommend more products to your list and make more money in the process.

4 They email their list

In the last point, I said that the money is in the list, this is not 100% true, the truth is money is in the relationship that you have with your list.

People they buy products from people they love and trust, in order to get the trust from people who are in your list, you will need to start sending them tips and information that can help them to solve their problems and with time they will trust you and they will buy products you recommend.

Tip: Don’t recommend products just for the sake of making money, recommend only products that are of high quality.

Tip: To build your list and use the power of email marketing in your online business I will recommend Aweber for people who are just starting out and ConvertKit for bloggers or people with more experience.

5 They add value to the marketplace

As I said in the last point, you need to add value to the marketplace, in other words you need to teach or tell people who are following you something valuable to them, this could be tips, entertainment, encouragement, anything that they find useful.

6 They promote high ticket products

All successful marketers I know and follow they promote high ticket products, it does not matter if it is their own products or affiliate products, you need to promote products that can make you at least $500+ per sale.

This is one of the best-kept secrets on online marketing, imagine that you want to make $10000 per month, which one is easier, to sell $10 product to 1000 people or to sell $1000 product to 10 people, I know I prefer the first option.

Another thing to note is that it takes almost the same amount of effort to sell a $1000 product and to sell a $10 product.

7 They promote low ticket products

I know I just said they promote high ticket products but one thing I found in successful online marketers is that they also promote low ticket offers, they only difference between them and unsuccessful marketers is that this is not their main focus, they use them to drag people to their funnels and sell them high tickets offer as backend.

That is it, those are 7 things that successful online marketers have in common, how many of them are you applying on your business? Let me know in the comment section below.

Why Am I Not Making Money Online? How to Build Trust with Readers

So you started your online business, you build a website and you´re not making any money and you don´t know why, in this blog post, I am going to answer the questions on your mind: “Why am I not making money online” and “Why isn’t my website converting?”

Why Am I Not Making Money Online? How to Build Trust with Readers

You don´t have a plan

If you are not making money online, probably is because you don’t have any idea how online works, like anything in life you need to have a goal you want to reach and have an action plan to reach that goal, you need to know each step you need to take in order to reach where you want to be.

How to fix this.

You need a plan, I am sure now you know that but how you can create a plan if you don´t have any idea how this business is done? You find someone who has done what do you want to achieve and model what they are doing.

There is a program called One Funnel Away  Challenge, they laid a foundation and a road map that can help anyone who is new to this online business to succeed with 30 days. It is an action-packed step by step training, I will recommend it as your starting point.

You don’t have a mentor

This point is related to the first one, you will need a mentor, a person who had success on what you want to achieve so that they can give you their blueprint and you can model it, someone, you can ask questions when you are stuck.

How to fix it

I will recommend again to try the One Funnel Away challenge, in this challenge not only that you will get a plan on how to succeed but also you will get Russel and his team teaching you every single day how to grow your online business.

You’re not building your list

If you have been trying to make money online for more than a day, I am sure that someone already told you ´the money is on the list´. You need to start collecting emails from people who are interested in your services and products and start building a relationship with them.

How to fix this.

If you’re new and you don’t know where to start I will recommend downloading the free freedom funnel that will give you the foundation on how to build your online business, you can download it here.

Build a relationship with your list

They say ‘the money is in the list’ yes, it is true but it is not the whole truth, the money is in the relationship with your list.

You need to stop treating your list as a cash cow, you need to treat them as people who have problems and need your help to solve them, send them useful information that can help them, and in long run they will trust you and buy products and services you recommend.

How to fix this

Start sending emails to your list, giving them value, and be helpful.

You’re not giving value

Online marketing is about giving people value, give people who follow you good tips and advice that can help them.

In order to give value you don’t have to be an expert, just be resourceful, sometimes when I get a question about something only thing I do is just to google it and give people the answer they seek, you need to be adding value to your prospects.

How to fix this.

Learn more about your niche, the more you learn the more helpful and valuable you will become.

You’re not taking action

Most people just never take action, let say you have a mentor, a plan, and a funnel, but if you don’t take action you will never build your list you will never build a relationship with your list and you will never make money online, it is that simple.

How to fix this.

It is simple to take action, do things that your mentor recommended to do, each and every day do something that will help your business to grow.

Final words

Those are the reasons why you are not making money online, so when you have questions like “Why am I not making money online” or “Why isn’t my website converting?”, come back here and read this article again. Also, I explained how to build trust with readers (prospects).

I hope they helped you somehow thank you for reading my post. If you have any questions let me know and I will do my best to help you out.

 

12 Qualities of a Successful Online Entrepreneur

They say success leaves cues and it is the same when it comes to online business, after observing many successful online entrepreneurs I found that they have most of the things in common, here are the 12 qualities of a successful online entrepreneur.

12 Qualities of a Successful Online Entrepreneur

Respect

Most of the successful online entrepreneurs I know they have respect, they have respect to themselves, other marketers and most important to their customers and prospects, if do you have the ambition to be successful in this business you need to learn how to respect yourself and others.

Self-discipline

This is one of the reasons why many people fail online or in life, they lack the self-discipline, most successful people follow a schedule, they meet their deadlines, they stick to a task until it is complete and they make the most important tasks first.

Ability to prioritize tasks

Successful online entrepreneurs have ability to identify the most important tasks in their businesses and prioritize those, this is one of the skills you need to learn if you want to be successful.

Dedication and commitment to problem resolution

Most successful marketers and entrepreneurs are solution-oriented people, they find out what are the problems they audience having, and they dedicate their time and effort finding those solutions.

A detail-oriented working style

Most successful online entrepreneur are detail-oriented, they know everything in their niches, they know every aspect of their business, and when they create a product or content they make sure that it is of high quality.

It does not matter if you use email marketing, podcasts, paid ads, blogging, etc, you will need to be able to communicate with other people.

You need to learn or improve your communication skills like writing and speaking, this is because in order to run an online business you will need to be good at both.

Willingness to share knowledge

Knowing something won’t make you rich, you need to be able to share the information and knowledge you have with your prospects and other entrepreneurs, yes you can charge for it but you need to share it.

Humble attitude

They say your attitude is your altitude, and it is true, you need to be humble, for me, a small amount of arrogance is needed in order to succeed in anything in life, but you need to be able to control it, people tend not to buy or associate with very arrogant people.

Ability to learn

In order to succeed in anything in life you need to be teachable, you need to be able to learn from your own experiences, other people’s experience and your mentor (if you have one).

Ability to think logically

When your business starts to grow you will have to make a lot of decisions, but before making those decisions you will need to be able to think logically because one decision can make or break your business.

Ability to apply knowledge in a new situation

Each stage of your business have different challenge, a person who is making #100 per day has a very different challenge from a person who is not yet to make the first sale, most of the successful entrepreneur has this ability to apply the knowledge they have acquired in the past in a new situation.

Interest in technology

Technology is changing every day, and to be honest with you it is very difficult to catch up, but successful online entrepreneurs know the technological trends and changes in their niche, you don’t want to stay behind you need to know everything surrounding your niche.

Final words.

As always thank you for reading.

 

 

Basic Components of a Blog Post

Writing and posting new posts to your blog is the best way to increase the popularity of your blog and hence it will increase your earning potential. In this post, I am going to examine the basic components of a blog post.

Basic Components of a Blog Post

The following are the basic elements of a great blog post. We’ll talk about how to optimize each for both readers and search engines.

Headline

The headline, or title, of your blog post, must be crafted to capture the attention of potential readers who may see it in their social media newsfeeds or in search results. Make sure you’ve found a great keyword that you can include in your headline.

Introduction

The first paragraph of your blog post will either keep people reading or make people leave. Make sure that it compels people to read the rest of your content.

For me, it is the part where I will tell the readers exactly what they are going to learn in the post so that they can make the decision to keep reading or leave the post.

Main content

This is the main portion of your blog post content. Think of the headline as the promise and the main content as the fulfillment of Use subheads to make your that promise. Your main content should fully satisfy anyone who posts scannable visits your post based on the headline.

If you create content that does not satisfy the promises of your headline, people will start to
identify your blog as unfulfilling and thus, stop visiting. The length of your blog posts can range from 300 to 3,000 or more words.

It’s best to alternate the length of your posts as you gain insight Write the perfect amount of
content about what works best for your audience.

Sub-headlines

Most people will scan your blog content as opposed to reading it word for word. Write subheads that break your content into digestible sections, and make sure those subheads represent the content within them. Use keywords Throughout Keep keyword density below 3%

Bolded text

Use bold text in a few areas of your main content to help highlight important points. Use it selectively, otherwise, your entire article will seem bolded, thus taking away the ability to highlight key portions of the content.

Bulleted/numbered lists — While you don’t want your entire post to be bulleted or numbered lists, these lists do help separate out steps and lists with useful content.
Place a call to action in your Media — Supplement the text portion of your content with
post media, such as relevant images and videos.

This will help break up your content and illustrate your points better. Images can also be used as part of the search optimization of your post—include your post’s main keyword phrase in the filename of the image as well as the ALT tag. Include social share buttons

Conclusion

The conclusion should be a paragraph or two at the end of your post to summarize what the reader should have gotten out of it. If they didn’t, chances are, they will go back to see what they might
Include links that have missed.

That is it, those are the basic components of a blog post, those components are the same that most of the big-time bloggers use, adopt them on your blogging and your results will improve.

What it takes to succeed in online business

So you started an online business and you want to succeed but you don’t know how in this post I am going to share with you what it takes to succeed in the online business.

What it takes to succeed in online business

Extreme focus

I still have this problem, when I start my computer and start working and the distractions start, first my family think that because I am working from home they can come in at any point and disturb me.

On my part, I try to work around waking up early while everyone is sleeping and start doing my things, also you can set your working hours in time when your partner or kids are not home, but for me, you need at least 4 hours to really focus on your business.

Another cause of distraction is that because I am working by using a computer with an internet connection, it is easy to open a browser and start navigating, this can take hours from your business.

If I don’t need to do the research I will turn off the internet and work without it, also I like to have background instrumental music on YouTube, this helps me a lot to focus.

Eliminate FOMO

One of the reasons why most people don’t succeed in an online business is that they have what is called Shine Object Syndrome, this is a symptom of a disease called FOMO.

FOMO is a Fear of Missing Out, you know, every day there is a new system, a new product, a new traffic method, and most online entrepreneurs end up buying all these products and systems because they have a Fear of Missing Out on this new phenomenon.

You need to find one traffic method, one product, and one mentor and focus on them, forget everything else, trust me you’re not missing anything.

Do not follow anyone with a new shiny object

This is big, as I said above, one of the most dangerous diseases that will kill your business is the disease called shiny object syndrome.

In order to cure yourself of this disease, do not follow anyone with a new shiny object, you know there are marketers who will send you an email each day promoting to you a new shiny thing, unsubscribe from them.

Also, there are marketers who create a new product after one or two weeks, most of the time what they do is rehash the same training, change it a name and give it a hyped headline and sell it again to the masses, you need to move away from those types of marketers.

Get clarity and your life and business will change

I am not a motivational speaker or guru, but I will tell you this if you don’t know what do you want you will never get it.

Imagine a plane leaving a field without its final destination, the most it can do is to take off, have some run on the air and one of the two things will appear, either it will go back to the original point, or it runs out of fuel, crash and burn.

This is what makes most online entrepreneurs fail to succeed, you need to think about what do you want to achieve in your life and business, you need to have clarity of what do you want and your life will change for good.

Commit to what you’re doing for one year

After having the clarity of what do you want in your life and business you need to make a commitment of doing that for at least one year.

This is a problem, most online marketers will join a program today, they will promote for one week they won’t make any money and they will quit and join another calling the previous one a scam, this cycle will continue for years.

To break the cycle, you need to pick one thing do you want to do, let say do you want to learn how to drive free traffic to your affiliate offers, you can choose to start a blog, a YouTube channel or a podcast.

What You Need To Do In Order To Actually Make Money Online

Most people who try to make money online fail, there are many reasons for that one of them is that they fail to do a few things. That is why today I am going to share with you what you need to do in order to actually make money online.

What You Need To Do In Order To Actually Make Money Online

Pick one niche

The first step of making money online is choosing your niche. You need which market are you going to serve as an online entrepreneur, some of the most profitable niches include weight loss, personal growth, and how to make money.

Learn more about your niche

After picking a niche you will need to do a little research about it, you need to find out who are the top influencers in your niche, find out the best youtube channels on your niche, social media influencers, big bloggers, etc, with a simple google search you can find all the information you need.

The main aim of this is to find out which type of content in your niche gets more engagements ie likes, shares, and comments.

Start producing content

So now you have an idea of what kind of content the audience in your niche likes to consume go on and create similar content.

Just pick which medium you can use to share your content, in this case, it can be a blog for written content, a podcast for a spoken content, or youtube for video content.

Build your following

So now you have a marketing channel, you need to encourage people to follow you in your social media accounts and subscribe to your email list.

You can use an incentive by giving something of great value for free so that they can join your email list and follow you on social media.

Find a mentor

After having some success, it is time to find a real mentor, yes you can purchase a product from someone but that does not make them your mentor. You need someone that can actually have a private coaching section with you.

I don’t recommend doing this when you don’t have any kind of result, this is because, in order to get a serious mentor, you need to show that you are serious in this business too and the results are the only when to do that.

Seek feedback

In order to go in the right direction, you will need to seek feedback from anywhere you can. People who consume your content is a good place to start, find out which kind of content bring more traffic, social media shares, and interaction and create more of it.

If you have a mentor, also you can ask for feedback from them, if you don’t have a mentor join a Facebook group of like-minded people and seek feedback from them.

Act and change

This is the most important factor, in order to succeed in this business or in anything in life you will need to take action and adjust according to the feedback you get from your prospects, fellow marketers, and mentors, adapt yourself and your content accordingly.

Get over disappointment

This is a real-world, you will get disappointed, you can trust me on this. You will get mean comments, you send emails and no one opens them, no one consumes your content, no sales, you invest in a product and they underdeliver, you make a commission and they don’t pay you, things can get bad very quickly in this business.

Any of those can happen to you and sometimes they can happen at the same time, you need to learn how to learn to let them go and keep moving on.
